I dreamed I rested in an eyrie high
with lover past and random..
heard horns and saw the hunters fly
cross land in wild abandon..
My lover ran swift valleys down
and found the fox, embraced him.
They posed in beauty, tame for now
scarce captured on a whim
Then ran again the fox so swift
and sisters recognised I..
one hunting that I envied so,
another sitting sky high..
And lover turned into the past
identities all mingling
and trapped like fox, I stared aghast
sad tears on cheeks now tingling
Confusion once again my robe
hopes raised in lofty gazing
close, winsome looks all fading now
Imperfect, so amazing
Tho many times my hopes are dashed
like fox at freedom staring
I’ll hope again until I die
alternative cold glaring
Come hunter, horse and sisters dear
Come lovers past, forgive me
There is a field, a future clear
My Father soon will give me
Not father here but from above!
My earthly father failed me
Yet judge I not much rather love
for loved am I eternally
Dream in prose requested for interpretation
…..I WAS SOMEWHERE UP HIGH IN A VANTAGE POINT WITH SOMEONE I THOUGHT I LOVED BUT THEN WAS DISAPPOINTED WHEN I REALISED IT WAS A PAST LOVER WITH WHOM THINGS HAD NOT WORKED OUT…IN FACT THE MAN’S IDENTITY SWITCHED BETWEEN AN EX BOYFRIEND AND MY SOON TO BE EX HUSBAND….THE BOYFRIEND I HAD LOVED BUT HE WAS ALCOHOLIC AND NEGLECTFUL…..THE EX HUSBAND I ALWAYS FELT TRAPPED WITH, I KNEW I WAS MAKING A MISTAKE ON MY WEDDING DAY BUT TRIED TO MAKE IT WORK FOR 9 YEARS BECAUSE OF WANTING TO BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN
I SAW MY SISTER MOUNTED ON A HORSE GALLOPING ACROSS FIELDS AND ALTHOUGH I WAS PLEASED AND EXCITED FOR HER I WAS ALSO JEALOUS.
WHILE I WAS STILL IN THE BLISS STAGE IN THE DREAM WITH MY LOVER HE WAS HEROIC AND DASHED DOWN THE MOUNTAIN AN MET WITH THE FOX, I THINK HE ACTUALLY EMBRACED HIM BUT MAYBE NOT, BUT FOR A FEW SECONDS THEY WERE FREEZE FRAMED LOOKING UP AT ME IN PAINFUL BEAUTY
AS MY LOVER FADED OR RETURNED TO MY SIDE I CANNOT REMEMBER WHICH I REMEMBER A CRUSHING SADNESS THAT HE WAS IN FACT AN OLD LOVER WHO HAD REJECTED ME, OR WORSE STILL MY EX HUSBAND WITH WHOM I WAS ONCE AGAIN TRAPPED…I FELT DEVASTATED
I ENVIED THE JOY AND FREEDOM MY SISTER AND THE HUNTERS HAD AS THEY GALLOPED ACROSS FIELDS AND I HOPED THE FOX WOULD ELUDE THEM AND MAKE IT TO FREEDOM….I FELT LIKE I HAD LOST MINE
THE DREAM HAD CONTAINED FIRST ECSTASY THEN WONDER THEN SADNESS AND QUIET DESPAIR LIKE THE FOX IF HE WERE CAUGHT
SHERRY GABBART who trained in dream interpretation sent me the following:
This dream is about you. It is a healing dream. God wants to bring healing to you regarding past mistakes. You harbor feelings of regret that God wants to remove. You are free in Christ, and past mistakes are gone. You are free to go on and make a wonderful life for yourself. Don’t let mistakes get to you. God wants you to regain your carefree spirit, and enjoy your life.
The fox symbolizes deception. Your exhusband/past boyfriend deceived you, and left you in pain. Your sister really represents you—the way you wish your life had been. What God is telling you is to let it all go… “all things have passed away, behold all things have become new”.
