April 13

Why are we enamored by the sky?
What is up beyond those clouds and among those stars
that we cannot find here? Is the promise of the galaxy,
the universe, is it merely an illusion?
I hoped once that the earth would be immortal
and yet now I wonder how we will survive
once all of it is gone.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

-- Walt Disney

I believe in love
but more importantly I believe in fairness.
I believe we all go through life
doing what is best.
I believe that we are good,
that evil will never triumph,
That the best of times will endure
while the worst of times fall away
for while we may be flawed
we are mostly good.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

-- Walt Disney

April 15

Once upon a time there was a King.
He was beloved throughout the land in which he ruled
yet he was lonely until the day he met his Queen.
She was fair and brave, his perfect match;
all was well in the land of of stars.
It was Camelot, they might say.
But so it goes that Camelot cannot last.
One day the Queen fell ill
and she was gone before the night
and the King went into seclusion
for she'd never had the chance to give him a child.
He was never the same until the end of the days.
Yet those who remember fondly those days of Camelot
and they wonder if there will ever be another.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

she is breaking, near the edge
and wonders if she will survive.
her body aches with exhaustion and starvation.
her thoughts bleed with hopelessness and despair
and yet she stops and tells herself
I will survive.

Here is a haiku
for the time I did not have
to write a poem.

April 18

The air is cold with trepidation
and fear of the unknown.
The world is thick with worry
of the things that they do not understand.
They do not know if it is good or bad,
if it is just, evil or merely imperfect
for there are many things that
have no answers.
Many dreams unrealized,
Many hopes unfilled,
and evil for the sake of evil;
and yet there is good, there is selflessness
and sacrifice. There are things worth living,
worth fighting for, because this world is all we have.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

April 20

She stopped for a moment near the top of the hill,
stopped for a moment to take it all in.
Below her was the world, stretched out
from sea to sea, from ocean to mountain
and everything in between.
She was almost to the top.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

April 21

let me tell you the story of the girl
who never wanted for a thing.
she was beautiful, she was rich,
she had it all.

each night as a child she would
look out at the stars and wonder
if life had more to offer than the
simple, idle life she called her own.

so she went west in search of glory,
of finding something that would make her feel
more than the emptiness inside her heart.
there she felt the warmth of starlight
of the others who felt her drive.

she didn't know it then,
but her days were numbered.
soon she would face the idle life
she'd fought to escape,
before facing nothing at all.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

the freshness of the dawn
the promise of tomorrow --
it all comes with light
out of the darkness.

April 23

the dark sky is thick
with the happenings of today -
although, really it is morning,
it is neither day nor night.
the hours before were long and tiring, but
soon light will come and
the slate will be wiped clean.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

I loved you once so very long ago,
so much so that I wonder if it was even real.
your embraces holograms, your kisses illusions,
the whole time, it was all so fleeting.
if's that's all there is to this --
than I'd rather hold you again.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

April 25

I must confess that there is much I do not know
about myself and about the world.
I sometimes think about the person I was
years ago with fondness,
but I remember she made mistakes.
I think of now with uncertainty,
yet I know I have gotten better
and I also wonder --
if the cycle never stops repeating,
when to stop and just enjoy my life.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.
