NOT FOR A LONG TIME…

NOT FOR A LONG TIME…

It hasn’t been in my life scheme

To experience living a dream…

It happened today

In the usual way,

Two years may have passed since that dream!

I was typing as women passed,

Saying words I remembered at last…

Ellen went by

And I knew why,

But the instant went by really fast!

SOCHI AND HOPETOWN

SOCHI AND HOPETOWN

Vicarious and satisfying

Things we choose to view…

People want to see a show

That makes them feel brand new.

Something to celebrate life

Beyond our personal means…

Physical and beautiful,

Fulfilling of great dreams.

The Olympics, sure reality,

Although they are worlds away…

Making dreams more possible

If only for today.

DREAMS OF WHAT CANNOT BE

DREAMS OF WHAT CANNOT BE

 

Day dreams he has a lot

About what he hasn’t got…

Abilities too,

That he cannot do

Reflecting those things he is not.

“If only” the visualization,

He’d been given better designation…

For things that he would

If only he could,

He’d be a source of inspiration!

But of course the real cost

Is beyond opportunity lost…

His identity

Would change naturally,

His current blessings thus tossed.

It is better by far

To praise God for who you are…

No need for a splice

With alternate vice,

You don’t know how bless-ed you are!

JOURNEYS OF THE BRAIN

JOURNEYS OF THE BRAIN

 

I’ve had some interesting dreams of late,

With lots of traveling done…

In two different cars it seemed

And trouble with either one.

The car I really drive while awake

Needs fixing soon…

How to pay for it is the take

That we have yet to assume.

I think the “double-oh-seven blog,”

That leaping black and white…

Re-blogged yesterday came into play

As the starring cat last night!

We have not yet “replaced”

The tuxedo cat we had…

Paying for “him”* and the rest of our debts,

Not being able to…makes us sad.

I was a teacher again last night

With assumptions that were mostly wrong…

The environment wasn’t the best,

(My class control wasn’t strong).

I often am driving in the snow

Or over flooded roads…

Both have been fears of mine,

The memory of which goads.

And somewhere in there I saw my wife

Walking around just fine…

Thinner with a lot less pain,

I wish that reality mine.

*Our new cat could be a him or a her…we don’t care…they have to be neutered or spayed with all their shots up-to-date, anyway.  With one exception, all our cats were strays that happened by.  This time we have a shelter picked out to adopt from.  🙂
