Imagine This

065b299139eadd5fbfa5f8308c0ec8a5

When life gets too hard I go to my special place
I look deep within this imaginary space

Time has no meaning and we walk up-side-down
There are no mirrors and no one can frown

Tears come only from laughing and giggling too
And most of the time that is all that we do

Who are the “We” I refer to, you want to know? 
Well, this is only where the most special go

Often they’re found in the darkest, ugliest parts
But they have the most beautiful hearts

Using their minds they create amazing dreams
There is nothing more lovely, or so it seems

Once in a while this monster will try to get in
But we put up a fight, won’t let him win

He knocks on the doors and tears at our walls
Says unkind things, to the weakest he calls

He has lots of  names, his heart black with deceit
But the one I fear most, the one I can’t beat

This voice calls to me often, attempting to lure me
Depressions its name, not sure I’ll ever be free©

Roaming Free

lucid-dreaming

Do I control my mind or does it take charge of me
Often can’t tell the difference when I let it roam free

Images of explorations and places that I’d like to go
Dreaming in my mind of the people I’d like to know

Lands of many colors and foods that taste quite rare
Foothills and mountains, country sides and ocean air

Take along my camera and voyage to the Taj Mahal
Then next snap some photos of the great China wall

All around Europe, so many parts that I want to see
Perhaps even drop in on the Queen for mid-day tea

Around the land of Scotland and maybe the Loch Ness
And I want to get to India to buy a beautiful silk dress

On to Greece, begin to check off my list I’ve unfurled
As I start to count to the Seven Wonders of the World

Ah, Paris and Africa, have so many things I’d like to do
Espresso by the Eiffel Tower and then off to Timbuktu

There are a multitude of destinations my mind can see
Often can’t tell the difference when I let it roam free©

Reality’s Dream

whales_dream_12237

Floating through the vibrant sky

Watching birds flying by

Clouds above and clouds below

No idea where I will go

Don’t know much about such dreams

Reality’s altered so it seems

Saw a boat pass me without a crew

Alone it rowed as it flew

Then fishes blowing lots of bubbles

A moment I forgot my troubles

Surfer dude with a great big board

Told of places he’d explored

Still on I floated without much care

Wishing only you were there

Dolphins swam and talked with me

All about this great sky sea

A shooting star waltzed with the moon

On the sands of time at noon

Mr. Turtle brought me an umbrella drink

It was on his back, I really think

But not sure I trust my eyes much anymore

Just saw a shark walk on the shore

The crabs and lobsters, urchins and starfish

Told me I could have what I wish

No longer did I want to dream of this sea

Waking up I found I was still me

A mermaid in love with this vast blue ocean

Forever together with much devotion

To feel you gently caress my hair and skin

You push back as I move my fin

Yes, there is no place that I would rather be

Just a mermaid under the sea©
