Visions of Another Kind

     As our ship leaves
the harbor 
our eyes search the skies for
   a sign 
Visions of the past 
    give way to visions of another kind
  Don't you realize what has happened?
  The old verities 
glowing embers
  in a room full of surprises
Like a "jack in the box" happiness
suddenly springs forth
where sadness used to hole sway 
The great masters of reality
will have their say!
Isn't it time you watched the earth revolve?
As it spins our hopes grow 
and are on the verge of being fuflilled 
          Visions of another kind
will take us 
   to new, unimagined 
heights, leave us breathless
on the shore 
    as wave after wave 
strikes the sand 
leaving their imprint 
   on our shores

    Yes, Matt, my sports cars (I had three or four in my lifetime) were the source of great pleasure for me and symbolic of my younger life of fun and being carefree and happy. Hard to give that up and be more down to earth. It sucks in fact!!! (to get older) Luv, Andrea

    Matthew, I interpret this poem in two different fashions, yet I'll go with the least likely! This could be the stepson of Christopher Columbus as he journaled thruout many of his adventures..Can you imagine reading that manuscript?? .Delightful personifying of waves as they slap the shores...Impressive and historical, which is near and dear to this soul!

    "Awesome" thank you for reading my "KHAN" comes from love letters I still have from a 17yr relationship,,, him and I parted as friends. Are you referring to " Dreams" or "Rhiannon" ,,, no matter,, you have a blessed day ;}

    This is beautiful, Matthew. I know I'm going to read it a few times over, before finishing this comment! Yep, it gets better and better!:) Can have many facets when looked at from different angles? Global change and reconcilliation. Fresh starts and new beginnings. This adds starch to this momentarily depressed world. Best wishes, Matthew!! Mikki
