Woodstock Dreams

Updated on July 20, 2013

What is it about time that drives us into the past?

Like ripples through space

We yearn to become part of something we were not.

Perhaps this is what it is like to be human

To want what we did not have

To experience what has not been experienced

To live in times gone by.

I search my heart and find these dreams

Visions fill my mind's eye

Perhaps it is the incarnation of a spirit

Who lives its life through me--

Perhaps it is desire

To be free from the trappings of a society

That crumbles and decays

Right before my eyes.

Let me have my dreams for they are mine

To pick from each brain cell

Like wild flowers in a meadow.

I boldly dare to hold these visions

Within my soul's deep safe

One day they will be set free

As I let everyone see the person I call "me".

      That longing to have witnessed things we have only heard about comes through, and many of feel it. Excellent.

      Take a look at a site called Sixfold.com. It is a poetry/story sight which is having a great contest right now. I entered five poems after a woman in my poetry group had five published in the first issue.
