         The oblique equation

A pensive probe of pondering scope,
Placates a promise of potential hope.
Patronizing a problem of evasion,
By presenting an oblique equation.

A turn about, from a physical form,
To a simple convert of mental warm.
Balancing the servile delicate scale,
For there is no ego that likes to fail.

So I say you my friends, scheme your schemes,
Delight your minds with your wished for dreams.

To dream a dream that fills me up
that warms my heart as well as cup
is too allusive to bring complete
for me the real just can't be beat

Loved you poem Sy.

Martie,
Your right, but a little dreaming doesn't hurt. *L*

Cynical but sharp.  A reminder for me, I'm afraid.  Loved the flow of this...Thanks.

Well I can completely relate to this one Sy - I spend half my life hunched up in my head!

LOL!

Once again - and excellent piece of writing.

A lot to ponder here, my friend, and said so succinctly as well!

I like the play you have put into your words. But I would like more from the ending, as original as the rest of the poem. Great title by the way, J

Wonderful work, Sy.
I'm with you - life without dreaming would be pretty stagnant.  Besides, as my good friend Edgar once told me;

"All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream"

Seymour~
Trying hard not to say,
'it's what I've come to expect from you'
... instead I'll interject,
you've shot UNDER par for the course
with this one.
