This is great. Send this out today to The Nation. That's a hard magazine to get into. Nearly impossible, but it has the right politics. If they reject, we'll go someplace else.
Hanging on a moon beamWishes are they daydreamsThey always do come trueEven if they dont materializeOr come to fruitition,The mind can dream and ponderOn something foreverSo much to where it feels realLike its happening or will happen...Because daydreams and wishesAre just as alive as dreams that do come true.Just possibly don't always give in to eachother,But possibly do.
Great poem Corrina! I love the repetition in the last line!
Dear diary, I just need 5 more minutes!! It seems like I always need 5 more minutes. No matter how fast I move, or how many helping hands I get, I always seem to leave work feeling like I left something undone. Not a good feeling. I pride myself at being super organized and ahead of the game. But lately, time is flying, and NOBODY is having fun. Maybe I'm doing it to myself. Maybe I'm not getting enough rest. Maybe I need to be shipped off to the funny farm... where life is beautiful all the time!! Ha ha! Now that song is stuck in your head!
