Wouldn't It Be Nice If the Words We Write

Wouldn't it be nice if the words we write 
could be sent without electrical means
or anything else that sits on a shelf
like the pencils and paper we need?

Imagine a place where all our thoughts race 
direct from our minds in thin air 
from one's inner being the ideas we're seeing
In less than an instant, right there.  

To neighbors and friends and those whom we spend
most of our time worth sharing, 
giving and taking, creating and making 
ideas that convey love and caring.

A "Poetry Express" might lead to success
of all our good wishes well sent
to just the right places and only those faces
who understand our deepest intent.

Like riders before on the old desert floor
carrying a bag full of mind-made treasures
eventually received by those who believed 
in the power of something unmeasured.  

Wouldn't it be nice if the words we write 
could be sent without gadgets required
except for the means to tap into our dreams 
and read every word desired? 

As a poet of course, I've no other choice 
but to wish for such unattainable ideas
while hoping for the best and giving thanks for the rest 
and the direction in which to steer.

    yes, it would be nice, but i still love the process of sitting down with a pencil and my notebook and writing my thoughts down. if our words went directly from our minds to the minds of others, i know that i'd need a censor in certain cases! still, i enjoyed your poem and what you've said here...

    Thanks Ilene. I agree with you! I don't need the brain police reading my thoughts either! (It's just a poem): Cheers, Terry

    If only. Sigh. No mind. At least now you have the luxury of becoming MIA on a whim without the "addressee" having the means of accessing your head. Exquisite writing, Mr Rhymester. :)

    Hello "Delicious": Lovely of you to drop in (again) as you usually do. No mind-reading police around here I hope! Mine brain actually has more clutter (and junk) than I care to reveal:) Cheers, Terry
