My Wish List

A wish list of dreams

Bogged down by reality

Never enough time

Never enough money


The foreshore has vanished

Under the guise of responsibility

Forever the tide is creeping

Onwards to cover my dreams


Things that seem so trivial

Become obstacles too high to broach

The physical rules, despite my protests

Is a force that cannot be denied


So I’ll bend the rules

Take another route

Not everyone takes the same steps

Nor are dreams quite the same


I will plod forward

Holidays not so grand

The milky-way shines bright

From my place


Alaska, a dream of cold wintry skies

While I sweat in summer heat

Floating ice in seas so cold

While I swim in tropical waters


Like dreams of writing

Commitment and drive

They ebb and flow

With the tide.
