the name of the dream

the gully

 

was walking along a gully that was about a metre wide

 

there were no signs of dampness at all

 

in the next scene, there were patches of dampness

 

in the next scene, there were patches of dampness and the occasional small puddle

 

in the following scene, there was a continuous trickle of water about half the width of a credit card

 

then, the trickle became a stream about half a metre wide

 

at this stage of the dream, it was still possible to carry on walking along the gully although my shoes were getting wet and muddy

 

glancing over my shoulder, i see a surge of water rushing towards me and before i can wade my way to the embankment it has reached me and now i am having to swim to get out of the water

 

the force of the water is making it difficult to get to the bank and another glance downstream shows that before i can get out of the water an approaching big swell of water, which will overwhelm and submerge me, will be upon me

 

a state of panic begins to grip me

 

sure enough, the swell of water reaches me before i can get to the embankment but luckily it pushes me in the direction i was headed

 

the tips of my fingers just manage to grip onto a solid rock above my head on the embankment but the force of the water is preventing me from manoeuvring into a position which will allow me to pull myself to the right and up

 

the water has become cold and my fingers have lost their flexibility and my body is becoming rigid

 

something tells me there another wall of water approaching and if i'm not out of the water before it gets to me i'm a goner

 

i can't pull myself up and out of the water so i let the flow of the water lift my body to the left and up just high enough for me to cock my left leg onto the rocky embankment

 

i now have to try to bring my right arm into a position that will enable me to get into a lying position, then a kneeling position and crawl away

 

will i make it ?

 

a sense of accomplishment says yes but the dream ends before it actually occurs
