I知 tired of ugly
I want some beauty in my life
Swans floating on an azure pond
While lilies float languidly nearby
I want skies the color of the finest turquoise
Clouds like puffs of cotton candy
Just waiting for me to grab a taste
I want music that makes me float on air
Catching notes as they drift by
Pure and perfect pitch
Pristine, wonderfuland who am I kidding
I want all that
But what I have is another 2 hours here at work
Before I drive home in a car that needs washing
And the car washes are all full and waiting
I値l have a Weight Watchers dinner
While watching a re-run of Fear Factor
And be glad I知 not eating flies and roaches
I値l go to bed too early in a bed too cold
And maybe, if I知 really lucky
I値l dream of swans floating on an azure pond.

Oh Sue! Sounds like a change in routine is needed, dear Poetess! Dreams are directional road signs to help guide us along our Path.
Take heart; go FIND that azure pond of your dreams!
A most excellent write!
May Peace and Beauty hold you close!

There's nothing like dreams
to brighten the day
When conjuring wishes,
They lead the way.

you make me smile every time i read you
you give the real not sad enuf to want to cry
and not funny enuf to be rolling on the floor
but just right for us to shake our heads in agreement
always enjoy you!!!

Sometimes I truly believe none of us could survive very long at all -without dreams.

And on a bizarre side note, I often dream that I'm on Fear Factor - eating bugs!

We all have the power to make our dreams a reality. By the way, this sounds like a Beatles song, to go with Lucy in the Skies with Diamonds and Strawberry Fields Forever.

I love the feel in this one and the ending was perfection. Dreams are so nice they make up for the lack in my life:)
