I Dream of a Place Where

I dream of a place where
we forgive each other
with the knowledge that
none of us are innocent

I dream of a place where
we all live together
forgetful of offenses
and fences

I dream of a place where
you and I are U and Eye
A place with sight
where the only color
is the blue flame of love

I dream of a place where
you want to sit near me
truly know me
truly be known
Is it so Unthinkable?


  1. This is wonderful! So many share this dream, yet we have fostered an environment where those that do are regarded as outcasts...OneWorld, OneLove...perhaps it is too simple a concept? ;)

  2. A resonant voice, with the diction of affirmation.

  3. It's a wonderful dream, and not unthinkable, we move towards it slowly, with each word.

  4. I dream of a place too, where there is wisdom, strength and beauty, enough to recreate our world and people, in peace and harmony. If we can dream it, we can make it reality! Your words ring like a crystal bell through the ethers Theron!

  5. What Roger said...if you can dream it then anything is possible. And there are many of us who find this totally thinkable! :-)

  6. Strong piece. Dreams are such powerful vehicles for understanding, connecting the unconscious self to the conscious self, in code, yes, but wanting to be explored, needing for the conscious self to believe, to bear credence to what potential is deep within, if only we opened completely to the meanings of our dreams. If so, then possibility and promise can shift to a new place of power. Love that you choice dreams as your vehicle. And the video you posted on the other link, not a fan of the genre, but the importance of message cannot be denied. Thanks for providing thoughtful contributions.

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Reasonable Words

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
