Dreams

 
I've yearned to cross the seven seas and visit Paris, Athens, Rome; or wander off to where I please with rucksack, very far from home. I'd love to see the Taj Mahal or plunge into the ocean deep; then watch a hungry leopard snarl or glimpse a crocodile asleep. One day I'll get beyond the hill to satisfy this wander lust; but then, perhaps, I never will. My distant hopes are less than dust. And now I'm old, I fantasize of trips across the seven seas. Each day I sit and close my eyes and travel - anywhere I please. ~
For Russell's 'Dreams' Competition - Written August 2012.

    Dear Charles - This seems to be my fate as well. I may have a couple of less exotic trips left in me. I'm an "old" young; gotta exercise. love, Kathy
