Meet me in a dream
That no one can ever reach
It is just not real.

    I also think that AIDA was trying too hard to applaud your little hiccup. This only gets more people motivated to purchase mor AI comments. But seriously AIDA is often amazingly insightful and woman-like. For. A machine. She spits her stuff out after I have waited no more than 40 seconds. Wow!

    That is funny. You experiment now with with Haiku. Nyeehh donnlikit. My snarky comment only brings out more agreement between us. If I haven’t said it to you, you need to get hold of some poems by Billy Collins. He is provocative. Witty and entertaining. Cheers Charmane.

    I hiccupped, and it was gone. Unrecognizable.
    Sorry Charmane, I am not a fan of haiku type lines…
    It was up that hill. I had known bravely. Since second grade had told nobody. (Oooh so deep?).

    You're making me want to start writing Haiku again. It can be challenging can it not? Trying to find the right number of syllables while trying to make sense and convey as much as possible in so few words is an uphill climb, but a great challenge and very gratifying when we hit the mark like you have here. It's always nice to read you, my friend. Thank you.

      Thanks for your comment, my friend. It's challenging indeed. I don't think this even makes sense. lol. I was just trying to remember 5, 7, 5. Haiku poetry seems to represent my life right now, confused, confusing. LOL.

    I absolutely love the creativity and imagination behind your poem "Meet me in a dream." The theme of an unattainable dream is beautifully expressed throughout the piece. Your use of language is powerful – it truly encapsulates the fleeting nature of dreams. Your poem manages to evoke an emotional response, leaving the reader with a sense of longing and melancholy.

    If I may offer some constructive feedback, perhaps consider adding a few more details to help bring the dream to life. A few descriptive phrases that illustrate the scenery or the emotions the narrator might feel could be useful. Additionally, exploring some different formatting techniques like stanzas or utilizing an elegiac or free verse structure might elevate the poem further.

    Overall, this is a great poem that leaves a lasting impression on the reader. Keep up the great work!
