In dreams, I capture the winds in these outstretched arms
and bring their kinetic powers to a center point,
where balance and harmony can begin again.
And in my dreams the time is now, to gently push these winds
outward, to encircle the globe beyond the four corners.

For mankind has been trapped too long into thinking
within the boxed imagery of well-defined corners,
and needs to reawaken to a more promising dawn,
to acknowledge that disproportionate lines have been drawn
that treacherously divide the circle of oneness
into fragments, uneven arcs of reality that are only
single segments…bits and pieces of the whole.

In dreams, I capture the winds of change,
set them free, that they may set
humanity free.

"For mankind has been trapped too long into thinking

How true...how very true Kacy.

"In dreams, I capture the winds of change,
set them free, that they may set
humanity free."

An outstanding write Kacy!
Into my library with this one!

Thanks Marge! My muse took a couple of days off and woke up fresh this morning.

nodding and smiling...

we're on the same page, Kacy

both literally and figuratively

smiling

next time I hug the wind, I'll feel pieces of you in it.

The windmills of earth turn more easily with your grease.  Keep tiltin'.  You've such unique thoughts.  Ken

Through rubble and trouble and dark of night
The yawn of a dawn will hasten the light

Kacy, I adore this. So much truth in these words and this reminds me of something Yanni once said to the effect of how when you look at the globe you see the lines separating the world, but when you fly above...the lines aren't there....they don't exist...

I can see that in your eyes also, these lines don't exist...as they shouldn't...

you are a very special person Kacy, and I am sooo pleased you choose to share your words on these pages of blue.

The greatest beauty on earth, is
found in the hearts of those
who love....

A simple thank you doesn't seem enough, Donna. Just know, you have made me feel so honored with that generous reply. I feel the same about sharing this space with you.

And Karen, Dixie, Ken...thanking you for your constant armfuls of hugs as well.

I miss Kacy and I'd like to think that she has captured the winds - and now she soars with them, making sure that they never are boxed in again.

That's what I want to think.

Alison
