Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate, A Second Before Awakening.

Gala, she sleeps. Her world seems at rest.
And yet, by a bee, she’s put to a test.
Nature calls on and Gala reacts,
Her mind swirls a scene the buzzing attracts.

Clear skies and seas surround Gala’s view,
And peaceful, it seems, if still one untrue.
A moment’s tranquility before needing to wake,
But peacefully made is easy to break.

Outside Gala’s dream the bee is persistent,
To fruit it is driven and plays quite insistent.
In a sleepily state a fair hand defends
And into her skin the bee stabs its end.

The mind can project such chaotic things
When influenced sharply by bees and their stings
And Gala’s dream setting with idyllic theme
Changes into a dangerous scene.

The tigers, they haunt and stalk to their prey,
It’s their world she lies and wish her away.
With them they bring menace and images obscure,
Driving towards a Goddess so pure.

They draw ever closer, released from the fruit,
Pouncing from the mouth of a fish in pursuit.
If only she woke and escaped to her bed
To the world of real dangers and chance to be dead.

As dreams may bring images to our human thought
Yet present no real danger in which we are caught.
And as Gala wakes from bee-driven alert,
She returns to a place where things do really hurt.
