Poem Friday – You Just Don’t Know

 

It was Sunday,  sitting at the hotel, cigar and drink in hand
I said to David how quiet, peaceful, and beautiful this corner of the land
 
First of the month of October, nothing unusual, last day, tomorrow we leave
I could not have imagined the hours ahead, I could never have perceived
 
Played the poker machines had a good win, ‘til 11:30 or there about
Went back to the room and straight to bed as there was an early checkout
 
Little did I realize what was happening not far away
So unaware, asleep then, to wake up to the news, to my dismay
 
A crazy shooter, many injured, so many lives lost
Never to return home, so much pain for loved ones, dreams gone, what a cost.
 
It is a good thing that we don’t know what is ahead, nothing planned
They would not be there, singing, laughing, listening to music of the band
 
58 more Angels in heaven as  life left their bodies as they fell
One, you can be sure, that shooter, he is in Hell
 
We must learn from this… like butterflies spread your wings,  just go with the flow
Anything can happen in a moment to end your life, your dreams,  you just don’t know

3. If an infant becomes blind soon after they’re born they will still almost always see images in their dreams, but infants born with blindness will most likely never have dreams with images.

5. The first electric Christmas lights were created by a telephone company PBX installer. Back in the old days, candles were used to decorate Christmas trees. This was obviously very dangerous.

Dreams Are Free

Tired of Civilization?

I looked at these pictures and thought how beautiful. I am so ready to have no close neighbors, the peace, untouched beauty, no TV, a little fishing, a little gardening, heaps of reading etc etc.

Realistically? I would love it for 6 months of the year. I would like to be on my motorbike the other 6 months just traveling.

Dreams are Free.
