aspirations
dare we dream …
     have hope

families fed
children loved …
     worldwide

farewell disease
no more wars …
     just love

as Lennon did
imagine …
     such joy

Hello Carolyn, Best Congratulations on your win!! An inspirational message for sure. It is wondrous to "imagine" these worthy goals being met one day. The problem, of course, is with the "politics" and those who wish to profit off of and from other people's misery and misfortune. Superb Work!! Cheers and Best, Gary

Yours was one of my very favorites, sweetie. Congrats on the well deserved win. today I changed from traditional doctor to naturopath. (probably spelled that wrong) I found out some unbelievable things about the Prolia they have been giving me. Feeling scared what will happen to me because going off prolia is dangerous but staying on it is worse. OH MY the things I have learned these past few years!!

It sometimes seems our leaders have forgotten the things that are most important to us. Unfortunately, some of them do not share our aspirations. Thanks for reading, my friend.

these are wonderful, Carolyn. I hope you are doing well. I have not heard from you lately and I know Florida had problems last week. I am now going home from work and just nice to think of you as I leave the door! Thanks for seeing my latest poetry!

Hi Carolyn, such wonderful words to spread the word of love and peace throughout the world. Your Charlieku's are excellent What a joy it would be to have a loving, peaceful world that we could all share as one. One is able to dream while reading these excellent words.

Great write Carolyn, I read a comment to Charles from Winged Warrior who called his modified haiku a ' charlieku' , lol. I've told him to register it as a new form. Good luck. Tom.

I'm pretty sure it was Brian Strand who invented the footle. Tom.

Hey, thanks for the background, Tom. I like these unusual short forms that people are creating. I think Footles were created by a Soup member. Hugs, Carolyn
