i had a dream....

where a little neon light
in an all night diner
kept flashing
and
even when i pinched my eyes until they hurt
i could still see it
and
then
there i was on a park bench
surrounded by pigeons
with missing feathers
reading a passage in an old vintage book
whose spine
no longer in tact
that referenced the freedom one can find
by
flying a kite
in an open field
with just the wind at your back
and
the sun in your eyes


and
i decided
this was a dream worth holding onto
even though i've always believed
i should

but
today
i want to live this one

  16. Such beautiful pictures and thoughts! I'd better make my dream a reality and get off my duff and write the poem for my son's wedding which is coming up May 7th. I am being so lazy.

  27. You know, I think you are really good at that. Not just living a particular dream - living them all. And going way, way beyond.
