March Musings '19: A Wisher and Hope-er

How many times have I wished and hoped for dreams to become realities, for good health, and for peace? Am I what Shel Silverstein in his poem, Invitation, calls a wisher, a hope-er, and a pray-er? YES, I am.

I am a dreamer who enters a realm-
dreaming, wishing, and praying
in evening hours when
quiet time is mine.

I am a hope-er who breathes in
and exhales, letting go of woes
in morning hours when
quiet time is mine.

I am a wisher, a hope-er, a pray-er.

I come in earnest
spinning tales and
finding new ones when
springtime launches its season so
countless, new dreams can spring forth.

    1. Thank you, Kathleen, for stopping by and commenting. I really like how Shel Silverstein crafted his poem with the creation of new words.
