Silly Fantasies

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.”
― Lloyd Alexander

 

I drift into an open-eyed swirl of delicious daydreams:

 

I cover the globe with my human feet

Foot prints on high mountains

Sandy toes in a hammock

Camera-ready for the great monuments that stand still in time

 

My days pass with my head making words

I write funny things and sad things

A work room with a balcony that smells like the ocean

Minds that like to read my creations

 

My thoughts are void of lists and worries

I can read for hours on the grass

Smell the cherry blossoms

Paint the dominant images in my head

 

Oh… that’s my bus stop

I snap out of my floating reverie

I have to clean my tiny studio

And make more to-do lists

 

What do you fantasize about ?

    1. Thanks Patty, I’m happy you liked it.

  2. I don’t know how I missed this the first time you posted it, but your words are fantastically evocative. Good job!

    1. Thank you Daniel, I’m very happy you liked it.

  3. Some of my fantasies are too explicit and too private to share. These days, I frequently fantasize about living in a more liberal, secular, less crazy country.

    1. Same here. Although I live in Canada, and it’s pretty great here. So I will hope for a less crazy world.

      1. I too often wonder if a time will come when I’m force to emigrate. Canada isn’t too far away. Would you say Canada tends to be more liberal or conservative? More religious or secular?

        1. Canada ( the government) is liberal and secular. However, there are people practicing different religions, but we all get along great.

  4. i sometimes fantasize about saving the amazon rain forest.

    cheers.

    1. I applaud that fantasy!
