Nightmares repeat as echoes (echoes) of our

repressed fears (fears) reverberating.

    I do wake up from nightmares every now and then… it could be that this is what it is.

    Oh my! Shivers! I’ve been listening to a podcast, “Ghosts in the Burbs.” That photo is creepy and your sentence perfect.

    Very thrue! Whatever happens during the day may well end up as frightening episodes in a dream.

    Good point about nightmares and repressed fears. And good choice of photos to go with your poem.

    Apologies, that should read ‘your American sentence’.

    As someone who often has nightmares, I applaud you American sentence, Lynn, and love the creepy image!
