Creative Love - Blaugust Deep Dream Journal Day 4

In the dream I saw a woman floating in the sea. I asked her, “What would love look like if it had a creative dimension?”

“The question, my dear, is this: What does love look like normally, with no additional dimensions at all?”

I pondered this riddle, then a thought occurred to me. “Why are you in the sea?”

“It’s a dream, silly.”

“Am I in the sea, too?”

“Maybe. You’re avoiding the question.”

“I came to the dream for answers, not questions.”

“There are no answers in the dream, my dear. Only riddles. What is mine but only you can have?”

I pondered this new riddle warily. “A sea cucumber?”

“My heart, silly.”

“So creative love is a series of riddles, then.”

The woman smiled. “Try not to drown.”

I’m not sure I’d classify these questions so far as “philosophical.” I was hoping more for easy ones like, “why do bad things happen to good people?” Also, four days into this and I’m pretty sure this web site of questions was itself generated by an AI.
