dreaming to my self



 Key West, FL- April 2012

 
I am the dream 
I linger close
my body drifts away.



 Every Tuesday Margo Roby brings the blogging world a new writing prompt. This week she asked us to look at the concept of self. This little poem is a tentative  beginning .

  1. I love the photograph. It's the type of picture I clip because it makes me feel good to look at it. How clever to have a twist, an unexpectedness, in such a short poem. 'My body drifts away.' I love that, Teri.

    So we'll see more of you now? That's said lovingly and with a smile. Don't do anything that raises the stress flag!

    1. Margo- Thank you for noting the unexpected... it is the only way I can understand the essence of self.

      And just so you know -I am always here. Reading everything. Soaking it in.

  3. I love the expression that you are not your body; you are your dream.
