Revival – A Two-Verse Dreamku

i was a wizard
who had a spell-working wand
in last night’s grim dream

i stepped on a toad
and waved my magic baton –
it came back to life

This is based on one of the dreams I had on July 23.  In the dream, I was a wizard with a magic wand.  I carried the wand on my back.  I accidentally stepped on a toad and killed it.  When I felt it, I lifted up my shoe to see the dead toad stuck to the bottom of it.  I felt terrible and very saddened and sickened by what had happened.  I pulled out my magic wand and moved it in circles above the toad while repeating, “Come back to life!” over and over again.  The toad returned to life once more.  I felt glad.
