Over lunch some weeks back, fellow writer friend, Becky shared a couple of sweet little poems that were inspired by her “ Dream Delivery Service. “ Your WHAT? Yes, she explained to me, she subscribes to a dream delivery service that sends out written dreams to her in pink envelopes. If he happens to be in your town he will deliver them before sunrise on his bicycle.
Yup. The guy is for real. His name is Mathias Svalina, a poet who started writing dreams for people from his imagination by subscription. He also offers various prompts on his Instagram account but he is known more for his Dream Delivery Service. Who knows how one can find such a niche? Obviously, someone with a vivid imagination and sense of adventure.
I’ve always been fascinated by dreams. Where do they come from? Where do they go come morning? Ask the dream catcher….
Dream Catcher Someone’s got to do it pickup all those shards of forgotten dreams dangling from tree branches and blowing about like tumbleweeds across a desert highway He gathers up odd bits of psychic litter metaphors, & scrambled images then repackages them into new dreams for delivery in dainty pink envelopes onto the porches of subscribers by bicycle in the wee hours before dawn Then back he goes pedaling furiously to his dream workshop to create a new batch of untamed fantasies and to get a bit of dreaming in himself to add to the brew As the sun sets he wakes and prepares for a new tangle of subliminal flotsam and jetsom to gleen When the REM alarm sounds the dream catcher mounts his bike and rides swiftly off into the night a mug of black coffee balanced on his handlebars
