The Dreamer’s Song
We wish, we worry, we long to conquer things,
but is the world stage ours to impose on like
perpetual star gazers, never satisfied or content
with a spinning planet that needs our care?
What is it about the wild storm inside? Fuelling
our edginess, we seldom look below impetuous feet
to notice the ground that nourishes with food, beauty,
colour, intrigue, adventure, and, yes, survival. Bogged
down in myriad issues, doom and gloom prophecies,
some spew frustration and angst in their wake like
fearful creatures clambering for the spotlight. But a
fresh and generous outlook could turn things around:
bring the world into graceful balance until it resembled
an elegant slow dance.
