TO DREAM

Updated on November 20, 2010

TO DREAM

There are moments when

I think way beyond,

Pondering,

Collecting boulders,

Cluttering my dreams,

Heavy heavy boulders,

Cluttering my dreams.

_

Integrity is a heavy rock.

God’s will, granite

Crushing.

The voices,

Irritating pebbles

Creating raucous in the echoing hallways

Leading to my soul.

_

So I breathe.

I don’t even pray.

It clutters as well,

As I hear myself rattling

On and on,

Praying for the impossible.

_

So I breathe.

I’m silent

I’m quiet.

_

Opening the door to my soul,

I see him.

There he is.

There he sits

Waiting,

And for how long?

Waiting for me to join him,

Literally to be come

One

With him.

._

He is young.

He is old.

Old beyond my own sixty five years.

Wise beyond

The boundaries of time

And the should be’s..

_

I tarry not a second more.

I join him

And dream.

Simple dreams.

The boulders,

The pebbles,

The complexities,

The preoccupations

All melt away.

I join him

To En join

Simple dreams.

Simple,

Lovely

Dreams.

      Hello Karanda, who is always a day ahead of me.

      How do you manage that? If we die at the same moment, will you get to whereever it is a day ahead of me?

      Yes, Wayne keeps IN SPIRing me. I do believe in critical mass, and I believe it is what brought down the Berlin Wall. So my "little" piece may be a hub or a poem and if all of us give what we have to give, who knows what can happen!

      Happy Friday to you!

      Ah Vern, such a way with words you have. I do so enjoy reading your poems and your hubs. I have been thanking Wayne Dyer for changing my life for many years and now I can thank him again for prompting you to share with us.

      Nighthag, thanks for reading and commenting. I have been writing these poems almost daily since August some time. I heard Wayne Dyer talking about anonymously giving money to those in need, and I thought, well, I don't have any money to give, but I could give Free Love, "anonymously" to anyone who might read my poems and get some inspiration, some peace, some pleasure. I post a poem a day on facebook and recently, I started posting them here as well. So again thanks. The verses directly reflect my moment to moment lived existence in recent weeks and months.

      Again, thanks

      I stopped by your profile page yesterday, and I am looking forward to reading your poetry. Peeked at a couple, but want to take the time to really slowly take them in. Appreciate your support of my hubs and will support yours as well. This is a wonderful community of writers and poets and I feel privileged to be a part of it.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I like the compliment!!
