When dreams

of foolish men


I will not cry

Or lie

and say “I’m sorry”


Instead, I’ll celebrate

their demise

and throw their ashes

back into the tributaries

of their own creation


Can you see what I am seeing?

Or feel what I am feeling?

Or believe what I believe?


You know, hope arrives

above all


when dreams

evolve beyond the actions

of their own being


and tears born

from happiness

Grow outside their eyes

jude, this goes beyond the quantity of consideration to the root quality of consideration, ergo, is it, worthy of further consideration? - thoughtful and introspective rendering makes for an entertaining read my dear friend - I wish you love and peace - Jon Michael

Beautiful sentiments that smoothly sink into the depths of the mind.

Too right, dreams need to be shared in order to bring a state of true happiness into existance, otherwise they're just self-perpetuating, self-serving and nothing more than a perpetual fantasy that keep the soul in limbo and divorce it from the common good. A shared vision and goal, on the other hand, often initiated by "dreamers", is a spiritual balm that unites soul to soul enabling dreams to evolve beyond the mind's eye, serving to bring forth those tears of both relief and shared understanding. Many a foolish man or woman has remained content within the ivory tower of his/her own misguided delusion that s/he continues to live out as truth. A weighty proportion to this ponderance, Kartero, but better to come alive and live in reality than to die in delusion and deceit. xx

Ponder all one's dreams...shed

I am not sure if I am seeing & feeling the same
but none the less this moves my thoughts into closure
some dreams really do need to be laid to rest for sure
and too I think hope embraces us all into our dreams
weather they aspire to flourishing in our life circle
or not...dreams are the hope of our wishes
& I would love to go on a cruise ship again
before my last dream comes to pass
to be cremated into a unique diamond crematory jewel!!
(minerals in the body you know)
Well that is my last & final dream anyway
hope I have enough cash saved by then :)

Love Joy & Happiness

Can you see what I am seeing?
Or feel what I am feeling?
Or believe what I believe?

I sadly believe that so many today have blinders on, and I often sadly wonder why they can't see what I see.

A touching write so heartfelt and meaningful as I always believed in following your dreams and to never give up as they might come true in the end. Great write Laura

It is a truth of mankind that dreams and dreamers differ from those who dwell in the house of reality. Some dreamers are like angels, some like devils so it is my friend. Ying and yang.

Indeed, Robert ... as I see it ... forging forward free of the cleaving prejudices from past misconceptions, misunderstandings, and failures, will keep the creative eyes sharp, the mind free of encumbrance, and it will maintain the soil of the heart in a state of preparedness (always) for a new/next season of verdancy. Here's to a better, more productive, season ahead. Peace ...

It seems unfair to judge the dreams and visions of others though some among us may be able to see to far deeper depths than they are. Brutality, cruelity, selfishness, arrogance, narcissism,delusions of omnipotentence and greed are among a few of the traits of young souls or souls who have not learned well from their past journeys. Those who feel that they are superior to others have much to learn about not only themselves but about life in general. It is sad to see these people holding the strings that rule the puppets, and puppet governments of our world, but it is part of the process and something we must learn to not only accept but embrace in much the same way we embrace a child falling as they learn to walk. Very meaty offering, Jude, lots to chew on.
Take care,

Foolish dreams is just another tool of the journey, no need for sorrow as it teaches like every experience that is born to us. This I do celebrate :-)

Dreams are merely manifestations of our own ineptitude for the most part, and most of us don't put the work involved to make the dreams a reality. Then you are correct to call us foolish men.
