In My Wildest Dreams

five, seven, five craze
poet’s mind becomes obsessed --
visions of seasons

all four blend as one
melting pot of poetry --
eating more than words

winter puts pounds on
spring has us on a diet --
words spew more slowly

bikini summer
Brad Pitt leaves Jolie for me --
in my wildest dreams

Carolyn! Well I didn't know you had all those wild thoughts! "bikini summer...Brad Pitt leaves Jolie for me". I think your mind is clouded with some wild thoughts of Mr. Pitt! Wish I was a mind reader! LOL. Thanks for your best wishes for me and David and for placing your comment on my poem "This Time". One love and blessings always. Joy (Jew)

Tasteful dreams Carolyn. Stars have big appeal. Aishwarya Rai is Indian Jolie... Winning wishes for contest. Many thanks for liking my work "Attributes". I write as I think in one shot.....It's encouraging to note that you like my work. 7-10 days I am off to foreign tour. Luv & best wishes - Hitendra Mehta.
