Dreams Left Undone.

 

Many dreams left undone!

 ©-MFB III 

  Imagination calls me
I can hear its whispers plainly
after all these years it's waited
to reclaim the fun we'd shared
`
and it comes to me disguised
on stubby legs with tousled hair
somersaulting through the leaf piles
chased by giggles mixed with pleas....

that I join in full abandon
with my five-year old companion
tumbling headfirst into remnants
of the summer with my son
`
first pretending we are tigers
on the prowl hidden in foliage
then becoming large bulldozers
plowing through the mounds of humus
`
in an instant battling armies
using sticks to fire volleys
celebrating our great victory
with confetti bits of awe-dom
`
far too soon we clamber upward
brushing off debris left clinging
hand in hand we march together
back to the real world, supper calls
`
but I still can smell that sweet scent
of those leaves we crushed beneath us
that hid sentimental moments
left behind when I was small
`
Imagination calls me
and no longer will I linger
with my son we'll both go chasing
all those dreams I've left undone.
