nice poem stout :)
your titles always amaze me.  wish i could poem streamline the way you do.  

once i dreamt i got stung by a bee because in real life i have never been stung, and i ran downstairs to tell my brother of my discovery saying 'paul, now i know what it's like to be stung by a bee!" and he replied, "so, what, if you dream you got bitten by a shark would you really know what it's like to be bitten by a shark?"

you had to bee there i guess.  sometimes i have these moments. :)

thanks. thats a good story and a jolly interesting proposition - my dreams are terrifying, so i'd rather have the real thing anyday. this thing with the bush happened and it was wonderful.

there is a fine element of mystery to this poem because of the last line.  i like it.

i like the word 'jolly' used in a sentence. :)
