To describe a dream

After Daniel 2

Asked (or ordered)

to describe the dream

of another, they ask

the obvious: tell us

what it was.


Asked to describe

the dream of another, 

only one didn’t ask

the obvious. Instead,

he prayed, knowing

any guess would be

wrong, knowing tricks

or stratagems would be



Instead, he prayed.

He asked for what 

he could not do

within himself. And

he was given the vision

of the dream.
