wide eyed

what were you doing?
while your dreams
danced recklessly through
your life and you
sat and watched
frozen in fear
wide eyed with wonder?

sometimes, watching our dreams dance seem to make them so big and difficult to follow that it leaves us in a state between fear and wonder.. well penned...really spoke to me on a very personal level..

Thanks Claudia,
It's awesome to know my words could touch another. Poetry is powerful!

It's true, some dreams are for chasing, and some are a mystery...but seasons change...!

I was finding the right music to match the the wondrous movement. not an easy task when fear dances along changing the tempo.

very nice poem.

A neat and potent poetic statement about the gulf between sleeping dream and waking aspiration.
