        What is a dream?
          ..vision of the mind
            ...a soulful find

        What are wishes?
          ..a mental illusion
            ...fleeting intrusion

        What are desires?
          ..a reality sublime
            ...moments in time

        What are memories?
          ..something of past
            ...destined to unlast

        What are hopes?
          ..just our fantasy
            ...a hearts ecstasy

        What is peace?
          ..mind put at rest
            ...a spiritual quest

        What is Love?
          ..matters of the heart
            ...feelings to impart

        What is happiness?
          ..illusive imaginings
            ...choiceful rememberings

        What really matters?
          ..the journey we take
            ...a difference to make
        




 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.

I like your poems because they really have a lot of thought put into them. I cannot recall a time when I have not read one of your poems and not given any extra thoughts on them. Don't ever give up on poetry!  
I mean really, what are all these things????
heh heh "thought for the day", thanks Danny!

Very beautiful questions, Danny. Matched only in the beauty of their answers.

A heart searching piece of work.

Danny~
You've done a super job on this.

'What really matters?
         ..the journey we take
            ...a difference to make'

You've touched upon the essence of
~meaning~ with this one.
Very insightful, my friend.

Danny, YOU KNOW... I LOVE THIS ONE!!!!!(smile)

        What are desires?
          ..a reality sublime
            ...moments in time

        What are memories?
          ..something of past
            ...destined to unlast

        What are hopes?
          ..just our fantasy
            ...a hearts ecstasy

I love it all...the form...the rhyme... the (...)   and most of all the grace and wisdom of your thoughts in it.The last lines  meanings are perfection.
very nice,very!!
take care jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
