About the Book

The narrative poem In the Wake of Dreams is based on personal dreams recorded during some 65 years. Curious whether dreams had a story to tell, the author grouped them by subject matter, and in the sorting was surprised to find that the more intimate the imagery was the deeper it reached into humanity’s collective memory as told in myths. Imagination, caught in the narrative drift, took liberties, combining dreams to extend events or round out the impressions certain dreams had left on her psyche.
