TELL:   the daydreamer not to dream

the realist that it’s not real

the singer how to sing

or poet when to……. f e e l.


 

 

 

TAKE:    the artist’s brush

the poor man’s meal

It’s not that much

what’s the B I G  deal?



 

 

 

THINK:     you’re in control?

when tot-all-y….L O S T

Or that you can succeed

without contemplating cost

I was asked recently to think about relationship between: what am I thinking, what am I doing, and what am I saying...So have now been observing these three things in everyone...funny what you see when you look...

I love this. the 3 parts similar but totally different. And that last line! made me reread it three times. such a beautiful flow and making me think about choices at the same time. well done.

Each time I read this it takes the elevator to another floor April. A really useful contemplative device in an eloquent poem.
I'd like to echo Jacob - good to read you again.

So many people think they know best for everyone... they knock others for how they live to hide the fear they have in living how that person does.

Very true Dale, thank you. Always a pleasure to see you.
we are dreamers in a way, artists in a way---we take what we see, what we feel, what we know exists inside of us...and try to put it into words...so others may understand themselves better.

so glad to read a poem by you again...

Thank you, It's nice to meet you. Will have to check out your page soon.
its like riding my HD on switch-back roads ;) great sense of rhythm April! and i like the font changes to accentuate your point ..that doesn't always work ;) your title and poem of equal importance i think .. self worth and valuing others is such a necessary purchase we should not hesitate to pay the cost ;)) good stuff ..planting it in me noodle this morning and taking it with me today
