Dreams Being More Than Just Thoughts

North Carolina, USA – WEBWIRE



Dreams are always a fascinating subject because it is stated that dreams are stories and images that our minds generate while sleeping based on what we encountered while walking. So, when one encounters a dream, they often consider its meaning, and for some, a revelation occurs, and they endeavor to make the dream a reality.


Such is the case with author Waverly Knight and her book titled “My Dreams” wherein she speaks of her dreams using a poetic approach in conveying the feelings her dreams gave her. All while remaining true to her faith in the Lord and conveying the thoughts of family and love.


The overall composition of the book itself is a well-written poem as it paces itself slowly and is written with the simple intention of making it easier for the readers to understand the underlying meaning of each line.
