This dream has been viewed 4089 times.It is night time and I am stood by myself out in the back garden of my childhood home. It is raining and the sky is black and stormy. At my feet is a very large and deep hole in the ground, its kind of a pit full of muddy dirty rainwater.
For some reason I associate the pit with small metal toy soldiers and have later come to associate the pit and scene with the Napoleonic wars, hence the name of the dream (this is the name I have always remembered this dream by).
Resting on the muddy earth to the left of the pit lays the head of a white dappled horse, the rest of its body is submerged in the deep hole. The horse appears to be trapped in the cramped trench, it looks to have exhausted itself trying to scrabble free.
To the right of the horse also half submerged in the watery pit is a long cutlass or saber like sword. The handle and part of the blade sticks up out of the water. The shape of the horses head and the curved sword mirror one another slightly.
On the ground at my feet are two cherries joined together on a stalk. The two cherries are from a small tree that stands just to my left that my father planted for me. The atmosphere is very charged and not nice at all.
Additional Comments:This is the first of three dreams that I can remember quite well from my early childhood, the date is not accurate but it probably occurred at some time around about then.
