Living the Dream

At night, Connecting carefully-brushed hair with embroidered pillow case. Dorothea dreams of kite surfing on salty seas as others gasp and applaud. Another busy day filled gratefully with smiles and chatter. Thoughts return. A love of flying anywhere, Without notice, Not needing permission. Feels like freedom, pure, gift of God. Hard work and dedication. Dorothea’s dreams surpass daily plans of fancy. Curing all ills, using weathered hands to provide compassion. This is the spot, The place of calling. Living the dream, Best of all night and day. Nun so adored, You fly higher than most, even with heels in grass. Deserving, gift of God.
