Distant Thunders of Wisdom........

It's all going to be okay .......ln that living provides
although it may not be of an image hoped
The one before the window of your soul
the one you so desperately groped

The lone piano music from the radio just
moved something deep inside my being
An instant realization .....as the fire burns
in the stove .....internal flames I am seeing

Images of youth ......the hopes and dreams
of love....they may only regress
And the realities of invisioned souls
a new depth .......it's needs to impress

Your dreams may have deceived you
and all with such eloquence ......
Now it's all up to the eye's
those that see unfiltered.....a new relevance

Where in God's world does the lost child
find his direction ....in such space
The scenes of the accidental living
don't allow standing in place

Ahh but there are times when sitting alone
is all one really needs
The touch of the keys.....the native flute.....
the soothing of the reeds

I guess it's just enough ....if we're lucky
a healthy life will provide.......
Take back your dreams...your hopes.....
they are not real .....they only lied

It's all internal you see..........not for the
faint of consumers
Happiness ? Look hard within.........
dispell the wispering rumors

Listen hard .......for the distant thunders of wisdom.....

Loveky dad! You know I think we two are the biggest dreamers! I relate very well with this particular write! My entire life I've been a daydreamer in fact got in trouble in school when I was younger for this. I have often thought my life is not how I planned and dreamed it would be and even at times got depressed. My career has really taught me a lot though over these years. I know now to be thankful for what I have and to cherish my gifts and even small blessings. Just the ability to be able to listen to the flute, smell the sea water, lay in the sun...this is where serenity is found huh!?

This is great ahorseback, an excellent piece. I am not ready to believe hopes and dreams are just lies though my friend. The great journeys of life, and rumblings of thunder within soul. This is a very strong, beautiful poem. Aged youth, and though I am only twenty, I feel I have already scented this in myself with each turn and bend in life's rhythm. A gorgeous exploration of the perhaps invisible wrinkles of soul. I'll be visiting this poem again. :)

Marina , Only a passing frown my dear , life must be all about dreams and hopes , and never give them up! They never really go away they just occasionaly morph into new ones. You may be only twenty but you have an admirable soul. Thanks for sharing.

Too true! Always changing, and to be a poet is to let the robe of a occasional frown be worn in the pursuit of an expressionate ripple to become an artistic wave. And thank you for sharing as always ahorseback.

Hopes and dreams are the reality of the life we hold in our hearts - it just takes a special kind of vision to see them in what we live. I agree with your comment... " life must be all about dreams and hopes , and never give them up!"

Another excellent thought written here!
