Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter

The Contentedness Of Dreams

Not the trivial grind of today.
No tv, no work, no hot shot
company reps, no politics...

Instead tonight I will wonder
and think-tank on faith in words
and dreams, wishing so desparately
to offer the one I love the relief
he deserves; solace to him when lost
in self doubt, I wish him restful
sleep with none of the troubled

Take away this anxious
time, replace it with alternating
currents of relaxation and excitement,
the contentedness of dreams, lightning
bugs caught across summer lawns and
saved in jars, blankets over picnic
grass, to clink plastic tumblers of
Vanilla Coke to chase thirst away
with a satisfying bite, walks in the
rain, for the rain's sake alone...

Just dreams, and such wonderful
dreams at that.
