Dancing Sheep

When the pen has lost its way
When ideas and ink run dry
Leave the desk and turn away
Take what wings you have and fly
Leave facts and figures on the page
Free your dreams from fettered sleep
And let them take you from the stage
To floating fields and dancing sheep.

For all we are is never told
Nor ever measured by the eye
Mostly unseen we just grow old
And no one sees us passing by
We are the tethered fantasy
Most of the time we do not care
For most of what the others see
Is only what we choose to wear

But in the mind's eye's overview
We see the parts, the acts we play
We know the scripts we follow through
Just waiting for the perfect day
And maybe, one untroubled night,
We'll quietly wish upon a star
And in that moment's grip, we might,
Have just a glimpse of who we are.

    A stunning reflection on the self-portrait we convey to others as it compares to who we really are. That first really grabbed my attention. There is no point to sitting, pen in hand, and waiting for inspiration. It is something that often comes when we look outside ourselves and allow our minds to journey beyond the reality we endure daily. Excellent work, Lee! Love, Carolyn
