In My Wildest Dreams

i am the undisputed
champion of laundry
and other areas of
womanly domesticity,
in my wildest dreams.

melodies are composed
in honor of my skills
of bold athetic prowess
on the sporting field,
in my wildest dreams.

belle of the ball am i,
wallflower’s opposite
graceful and desirable,
of incomparable beauty,
in my wildest dreams.

flocks of fans gather
pursuing my attention
accolades precede my
effervescent presence,
in my wildest dreams.


in truth i am average,
in every imaginable way
no fans, no praises,
no notable skills,
but i still have dreams.

Inspiration comes from everywhere. This particular piece was inspired by an advertisement for detergent. If only my laundry could be that fresh, that perfect….ah, if only.

      1. Hey, thank you! I’m sorry I’m sorry I didn’t respond to this comment more quickly. Somehow I just seemed to miss it for some reason. I’m not sure what happened. It wasn’t modesty preventing me from replying. 🙂

        Anyway, it seems I may never be Freshly Pressed. I wondered for a while if it was because I didn’t use enough photographs or if my posts were not about sufficiently important topics, but now I think I probably just didn’t stuff enough money into that brown paper envelope.

      2. I’ve noticed that most of the freshly pressed people are doing interviews or tackling topics that are in the headlines. I don’t think my laundry posts are going to cut the mustard.

  1. I had been a bit worried about your associating everything with laundry. Still, it doesn’t seem to be affecting you as much as I feared. I’m sure that with time you’ll be able to iron out any remaining wrinkles.

      1. You got me! I’m all out of washing idioms. My powers of creativity and imagination have all deserted me. Even my trusty Guide to Idioms has let me down. They’ve all just left me out to dry.
