~Gateways for Desires~

No matter how much work
you have to do today, make
time to luxuriate from elegant
richness of yesterdays arched
portals imploring lessons learned
for today's mental playground

Feel inspired to accomplish
great things vacillating between alternative options shooting arrows
into the sky much like Sagittarius
the Archer even if you don't yet
know ascending target as portals
unfold in the wonderment of your heavenly discovery for desires

Yes, to take time to smell the roses, have deep thoughts, engage in fun activities, etc. Wonderful words Vivian to describe the need to take time in a busy, goal oriented world. Who knows where your next "gateway to desires" will take you? Slow down and find out!

You are a sage Vivian and a fine poet.
Reviewed by Diana Legun (Reader) 9/27/2012
Not only does this poem offer inspiration, permission, encouragement and enticement, it conjures up loftiness of 'being,' which brings me to the two lines in the second stanza extending outward in form, in keeping with their language of "shooting arrows" and "heavenly discovery," trajectories of bliss. Thank you, Vivian, for this one today. ~~ Diana

That term "lessons learned" has taken on a much more positive meaning than the usual industrial interpretation. Note to self: shoot more optimistic arrows in future.

Vivian, that same portal takes me to so many places and so many levels and is the doorway to my muse. Excellent work.

We the poets, writers, artists and those with an imaginative flair are truly blessed for we can often cross that portal at will simply by closing our eyes and opening our minds...nicely done

finding little moments, so important, so hard, maybe poets have mastered the art of vacation....I think I will step out of here for an hour or so....and were gone! ....this week Argentina, tomorrow the backyard.

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 9/25/2012
I love the direction this poem points us toward "lessons learned," Vivian. Of late I have noticed you have migrated to a loftier plane than I was used to seeing in your writing, and that loftier plane works for me. You summed it all up in the last line of the poem. Brava! Stand. Clap.Clap.
