Dream – a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep.
(Google definition of the word dream, February 15, 2020)

Everything within my vision is magnified.

I can see my hand as it reaches for the fence, but it as if I am watching like a spectator outside my body. The fence colour is pale in comparison to the tan colour of my hand. My hand is so vivid the delicate line patterns in my skin seem to pop out and the creases in my knuckles are deep and exaggerated. Then it catches my eye, the deep cherry red cut in the furrow of my knuckle and the tiny red-brown ant walking into that gouge. The ant is small in comparison to the cut and his two millimeter body is moving toward the small flap of flesh at the end of the cut. Frantic my other hand comes into view and swats desperately at the injured hand and the invading ant. A feeling of horror and desperation overcomes me as I watch the ant scurry into the fresh opening in my skin and disappear!
