More than You Can See

Thank you to Greg Laychak for this Sunday prompt

This is for One Stop Poetry’s Sunday photograph prompt

I haven’t finished yet,
I still have dreams
Things I vow to do.
There are places
I must visit, holidays to take.
Friends I haven’t met yet,
Men I yearn to hold.
I still want kisses in the moonlight,
The comfort of a hug.
I still thrill to birdsong, shiver
In the sun as it slides gentle
fingers on my skin.
I dream among the stars,
Bellow in the shower
With the sheer joy of living.
I have many seas to swim in,
Railway lines to ride,
Ferries not yet taken, I may yet
Learn to glide, silent, sleek
And graceful through the clouds.
I’m not as you must see me
Sad, bewildered, old.
Ninety’s the new sixty
And I still have dreams to dream.

      Thank you – and thank you for welcoming me in to the One Stop community. I just love the comradeship and encouragement in what can be a solitary occupation.

    I love the positiveness of this poem ! And I really love the image of her riding the railway lines – maybe it’s just me but I see her riding those lines, in that chair. Lovely poem Sally !

    Powerful energies fill within life’s dreams… felt, held gently like the dove, have wings to soar!
