Last night I dreamed #1


A couple of visual prompts to take off from. Write a little narrative in the comments section, related to one of these if you like, or something of your own. I will pick a couple to illustrate for next Sunday. 

Start your zithers...The Third Man begins tomorrow.

There was the tail end of a summer afternoon to kill and I was walking on a strange road, when I saw a house shaped like a helmet. People were staring at me, their watercolor faces pressed against the windows...

Last night I dreamed I was a (female, terrier-like) mole in Africa. I lived in a comfortable mole-hill, surrounded by a picket-fence (to keep the giraffes out)...

I had a dream last night that the spirits of my dolls came and kidnapped my dolls saying they had a right to own them, but I wasn't willing to give them away. Later I was in a temple with a stone altar on which a Buddha should have been, but there were Hindu sculptures; and behind the altar, there was a stone with hebrew letters, and I said to my husband: "This is the oldest part of the temple, it is more than 2000 years old."

I was walking along Gunther Street, where the one-lane overpass exits Fremont. You know the tree-lined street I mean, where you buy Armenian sausages from the little one-eyed man in the tiny shop with colored flags hanging over the door. His wife sits at the counter taking the money and she keeps an eye on him when the pretty girls enter. Anyway, I walked past the shop - closed on Sundays - and was amazed that someone had painted a giraffe on the overpass pillar. Not a small giraffe, either. It went from the very bottom to the very top, nearly 30 feet high. It looked so real - like one of those French "fool the eye" paintings that I approached it very closely, marveling at the detail. I still couldn't get over how realistic it looked so I reached out to touch it. Imagine my shock when the giraffe moved under my fingertips and then stepped toward me ...

Liwaza, it is progress! We were the last continent to industrialise. You see, even the giraffe are getting used to it now.

Last night I dreamed - of a hemispherical dome with multiple windows. Strange noises and lights emanated from the structure making it appear like some mystical alien spacecraft. As I hid behind one of the pillars of a bridge nearby, hoping to surreptiously monitor the activity, a giraffe emerged from the concrete and headed towards the dome.

Barely seconds after this astonishing spectacle an elephant emerged from a wall near by, a lion from the lamp post and an alligator crawled out of the culvert...all headed in the direction of the ever growing din in the dome. It was indeed some extra terrestrial congregation...defying conventional wisdom and our understanding of space-time-matter...

There was this house made of chocolate cake, with sheets of tiny sugar windows and no doors at all. Suddenly a hand shot out of one of the windows and cut off a piece of the wall, and I could then see the person inside eating his way out of the house.

Thanks for the dreams!

I had a dream last night, I was standing under a bridge, barely enough room to stand, my little head barely able to move.
Leaving me devoid of concentration, my brain feels numb, unable to think, " where am I?", why would I be here?
Common sense doth not prevail,I do not understand!
Alas! My brain awakens, I am an illusion, plastered here, a saint for all to see. Is it?

Oh, my gosh, I known that house! A friend of mine lives there! What a happy surprise to see it here!

I don't think I can top femminismo's extraordinary dream so won't even try. Wonderful suggestions all of them...
