Four W's and a H (Carry On Tuesday) Prompt 3

"There are sleeping dreams",
dreams you have no control over.
They are the master, you are the slave.
Slave to where the dream wanders.

"And waking dreams"...
These dreams are caught between
the setting moon and rising sun.
Awareness grows as eyelashes flutter.

Be careful when waking!
"What seems is not always as it seems".

How can you deny the evidence?
Why then do you fear the day and pray for the night?
Where do your dreams linger...
What does it matter -
Who is it that asks?

Some things have no answers,
others should remain silent.
Pandora's box holds only destruction!
Even in dreams...

"There are sleeping dreams and waking dreams"
"What seems is not always as it seems"

Ask Alice, she knows.
