By Charles Robert Lindholm 

I wander
in dreams of possibilities
until the sun
chases away the darkness
and my dreams
with a sneaking sunrise 

Dragged back
through a tunnel of time
into a new day where
reality waits for me
at the detour I took
when I escaped
into my dreams 

And as I wake,
I curse the sun

  1. One article seems to have been a cauldron of inspiration, Charles 🙂

    • Yes, You are so right about that! An extended play date? Ha! Thank you for leaving so many seeds of inspiration for me to find!!!

      • Glad the seeds found fertile ground, Chuck 🙂

      • Yes Sue, you are so right! Wonderful inspiration. And in reviewing your comment I was remembering what I had written that was inspired by your piece and realized I had forgotten to post the final piece – to date anyway. “A WONDERING WORD”. I will post it for tomorrow. I hope you will like it.

        Thanks again for blessing me with all your seeds of inspiration!!!

  2. Hi Chuck. I feel like that sometimes when I wake up, wishing I could live my dreams. Great poem.
