Pintrest - Poem April 14.pngHere is what it means

If you dream of a tea cup

This symbol represents your soul

First identify the state of the cup


If the cup is clean and looks pristine

You are not taking enough risks

If the cup is dirty and stained

You are living life to its fullest


If the cup is full of tea

Your playing safe being traditional

If the cup has another drink

You are a unique kind of special


If the cup is empty

Oh dear, this is not good

You need to throw a party

Be the mad hatter of your neighbourhood


If the cup has an abstract pattern

You need to eat some cake

If the cup has pretty flowers

You will soon be late


If none of these descriptions

Is a good fit for you and your tea cup

Then back to bed you must go

Too early you woke up


Day 14’s challenge

For Day 14, the challenge was “And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Dream dictionaries have been around as long as people have had dreams. Interestingly, if you consult a few of them, they nearly always tend to have totally different things to say about specific objects or symbols. Dreams, unlike words themselves, don’t seem to be nicely definable! At any rate, today’s prompt is to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things:




Ballet slipper


Wobbly table



How can you write a definition as a poem? This idea seemed ludicrous and then… I was inspired by the tea cup.

I’ve always wanted an Alice in Wonderland tea party and almost had one as the theme for the baby’s ‘Gender Reveal’ party. I wanted that party to be about Noah getting a brother or sister (not about me). A blog post is coming next week on the party.

You may see as the poem gets more and more crazy a few wonderland themes sneak in.
