Poetic Dan

Life is but a dream

I was advised to row gentle 


Life is but a dream 


Don't forget to scream 


As you drift down the stream!



Somebody will always hold your hand 


Until you can float above the contraband 


For all that exist or does not is meant to be 


On a speck of nothingness with Infant possibilities!

    The Buddha taught "life is but an illusion".

    Someone else just said "writing about yourself is therapy, writing about the world is artistry".

    • Poetic Dan

      I shall close my eye's with that being the last sentiment I read!

      Most definitely appreciated my friend!

      Rivers evoke questions, oceans wonder.

      • Poetic Dan

        Unless you dive down deep for the answer but to low and you many never come back up...

        Thanks for the inspiration..

      • Robert Southwick Richmond

        Whatever floats your boat....

        • Poetic Dan

          Many things do my friend..

          Always appreciate your time

          You've been down My River then Dan, it always holds my hand and guides me into wonder.


          • Poetic Dan

            That I have and life is never the same after, thanks for showing the way...

          • L. B. Mek

            in me, at least
            you'll always have a hand
            reaching-out, ready
            to do what it can,
            stay strong my friend

            • Poetic Dan

              Stronger than I've ever been! Ain't nothing stopping me with this tribe I have...

              Always deeply appreciated
