resigned

inhale
watery reality

trailing bloody strings

Wishful Thinking
To be literate makes us cock of the hoop. 
If we cannot read we’re out of the loop,
but can a slowpoke,
and illiterate folk,
learn to read eating alphabet soup....

The Emperor jailed in wishful thinking,
 where only he could be

As I escape inside myself

Like A Passing Breeze
I felt the wind soft against
the gate of love and hope
and beauty flowered in wishful grace
fragranced
whispering quietly in the passing breeze 
to the keeping of my heart...

Time
I froze time with a kiss,
I traveled through time by reading.
I escaped it through music,
And I felt every moment by writing.
Then I took a wishful breath to see what time will bring.

Swelling in the heat
wishful thinking
laughter
what could be

Sitting on the fence
between corn fields and wildflowers

Feeding hungry mouths
Rubbing tired shoulders
Inadequate

If my voice was but a croak I'd write my lyric on a mountain high So all the world could see Note, I say not sing. Lest they were in harmony. There I go again, wishful thinking.

Premium Member Crush from a Distance
On his awareness, her flaunted features stand a peg
forcing out zeal and energy from his third leg
praying for a wishful share
of her behind like a chair
and yet unending are his hopes, prayers and beg.

I do not put up with rudeness 
I am older now
I recognize it faster
I tape their mouths shut
Spin them around
Kick them in the petootie
and send them to the moon
Or is this just wishful thinking?

Premium Member WISHFUL THINKING
a contrived
       fiction
yet
sensitive..
      ..a coincidence..
perhaps..
a luxury,
         whatever..
modern
yet
     timeless,
coherent
       but incomplete..
a
source
       of
            day-dreams...

         the son of satan, mammon
               chaotic havoc...

Wishful thinking
Maybe if we sit in the rain
With nothing but our thoughts
The raindrops could turn into diamonds
To bedazzle our minds 
With the purest of congitations
So we could sit peacefully in the rain
With nothing but our thoughts.

The Nearness, The Now
Hemmed in by the Nearness
Held back by the Now
The wishful striver, always, who
O'ercome both somehow.

Lost in an isle's sailed thrill
Sea-hazed, whilst safe moored!
As far unfound, delirious
Whilst by Time's Sea shored!...
