   Of ethereal and practical

There are two lives I seem to lead,
Ethereal and practical.
But only one I seem to heed
And that one is intangible.

My head is in the stars all day,
It never seems to clear for me.
It always seems to want to stray.
With daffodils or out to sea.

I'm never sure just what to do,
The practical cries out to me.
It's always in a misconstrue.
I live in ethereal ennui.

But my good wife is very straight,
She handles things material.
She does the deeds that I most hate
Will only heir ethereal.

I would love she join my predispose,
But she only smells, the real of rose.

I have a knack for daydreaming also  

 At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet. ~Plato

I think daydreaming is just another part of being a poet. Nice poem.

Is it possible for you to write a poem that I do NOT enjoy reading???!     I doubt it!  Daydreaming over here too, wonderful poem.

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Left brain-right brain,
creative or precise,
to have them both would be
so very very nice

Enjoyed the poem Sy!

My wife says I have a great imagination... I count it as one of my greatest features.  As always... like your style and the read.  Those last two lines were the perfect finish.

Oh and Sy, if you combine the real scent of the finest rose and the breath of the ethereal - well what a rich world you and she inhabit...

Wonderful words again!
