Little I Ask, My Wants Are Few



Little I ask,
My wants are few.
Life is a game,
Dream is its name.
The famous dreams about being the ordinary,
The ordinary dreams about being extraordinary.
3 dreams about 1,
B dreams about A;
Flowers dream about bees,
Birds dream about trees;
Orphans dream about toys,
Girls dream about boys;

Dreams float in mind stream,
Fantasy melts in ice cream.
Life is a game,
Dream is its name.

  10. life is game until you grow up then it stops, but i guess we sudnt let the fun stop & dream like we have as when we were kids. This was a good take on the free verse prompt.

  14. Adorable! Dreams seem to be always connected we things we are not and things we don't have. Why is that? I wonder.

  16. Flight of whimsy much needed on a quiet morning. Read 3x, good to hear your words again. It's been too long & I miss being involved in the poetry community. Gotta get back into reading pages regularly again! Hope all is well, take care,

  41. Dreams..... I guess they really are the common thing between us all....

    Tonight I'll be A's and you'll be B's
    Birds can sing in our dreamy trees
    Flowers abuzz with sounds of bees
    Drift away, as one dreams threes
    making us the extraordinaaries

    ReplyDelete
  42. This could be a song -- it already sings itself. Liked especially

    Life is a game,
    Dream is its name.

    In a benevolent universe, you have but to dream, to put your desire out there and let it go. And then you are amazed at what comes back to you...

    Of course, if life is a game it is probably better to have hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place! Enjoy!
