I  pray and seek what dreamers seek;
Whenever I see the effects of bloody nonsensical wars

and the horrific panic on the faces of innocents,
who have unwilling ears and uncertain hearts
When they cry out to God :
' WHY'? OH WHY?'
Sometimes life can be so brutally unfair.

So unlike our Creator.
What have we become?

Therefore, I pray and
I do what dreamers do;

Retreating to peaceful harbors
and rivers that gently meander,
through peaceful meadows
down to the waiting  blue sea,
sweet scents of flowers of 
winds breath on a summer breeze.

I look for what dreamers seek
on journeys worth taking;

The crisp colors of fall,
mellow yellows and rusty reds,
nip and biting cold kisses of Jack frost
the smoky scents of leaves burning;
Harbingers of approaching winter

And I pray and therefore
do what dreamers do;

Strum in songs that calm my soul 
reading by soft firelight
from your Words of wisdom,
writing poems of life and love....
Hiding myself in dreams of love's constant shelter,
because I have lived enough to know that life can be so unfair
and journeys worth taking 
are dreams worth millions.

Really beautiful

You make a jaded soul

As myself

Want to dream with you.



I have always loved the seasons

And the need for change.


Just to feel alive.

Living through the mundane.

Yes I am, Kaitlin!

it gives ones imagination the poetic license to write outside the box and to live freed from a ragged past.p or things that trouble any of us

i ought to know. My past was treacherous ground to journey on.

Dream, poetess, dream beautiful.

see it,describe it,enjoy your God given ability to imagine

imagine each day quiet in silence,eyes closed.

i was healed of cancer doing this and prayer.

Hugs, Koko

PS I'll be speaking this in a forum in church July 3.

i haven't done that in a very long time.


ahhh to encourage and teach:)
