A Thought for Today
Once I thought dreams were exceptions, not the rule. But that isn't so - they are so plentiful that they ride by on air. You've only to reach out and snatch one from the mist, or from nowhere.
To write about you isn't easy.
Compare it to a blind that on its spring flaps up to smash the window casing. To praise or
talk about you would do more injury than compliment.
Within my own heart's head, I remember sun in California, mid-Manhattan corridors and
hotel beds, a Sunday walk within Miami's mall. Island nights of fireflies and lightning.
Some pages in my diary are blotted or unused. Those must have been the happiest of times,
for who can jot down happiness when it is happening? Bad times? Sure.
Still in this year together I have never once considered life or lifetime to be anything
but synonymous with you.
