IMUNURI prompt: Dream Animal

Drawing by M. Peña
Could you write about the feeling of affection as a translucent, red spider?

Does the anxiety that comes from unexpected change creep into the house like a human-headed squirrel or jump from the rafters like a mandrill wearing a tux?

Is hunger a butterfly? What is the shape of the wing?

Does a walking pumpkin bring your overwhelm on a paper plate?

Go into your subtle emotions, the microchemistry of your reactions and responses to living.

Create a metaphor there in the form of a dream animal, a real or fictional creature, something mundane or mythic. What does it have to tell you? What can you do to give it comfort?
