Deep Field of Dreams

2 Comments

My spirit speaks
The silent Universal
Language of love
And yearning

While

Trapped as surely
As any goldfish
In its tiny bowl
I recognize the irony

And the joy of
Beholding all the wonders
Hubble has to offer
In glorious living color

Along with the knowing
I will not last the tens
Of scores of years
Required to reach them

I'm either a transplanted East Coaster or a born again West Coaster. My heart kept pulling me toward Oregon, and when I followed it I found my dream, which I am living daily. My dream of becoming a writer has come true as well. I am in the company of people who speak my language, and the sense of community is healing hurts I didn't know were there. I am very grateful for my enormous good fortune.

  1. Lovely. I believe I see all the Happy Ladies from our group in those stars. We shine brightly forever.

  2. You’re right, Martha. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Then there’s Crosby, Stills and Nash, “We are stardust, we are golden”.
