Accidental Poet

Fantasy Land

Within the realm of a dream

Much like a fantasy land

A place where men greet each other

As they shake hand in hand


See the people there

How they help one another

Hear the birds sing in unison

As overhead they hover


With a welcome smile

Nations unlock their hearts

Friendships spreading far and wide

Countries bonding never to part


The Earth blue and green

Species that live and let live

A common act between the living

A peaceful offering to give


A world that thrives on respect

Compassion mutually shared

The many walks of life

For one and all to care


To all the world’s problems

Love is the cure

Love for all species

For eternity it will endure


And maybe just maybe somehow

This fantasy land will become reality

An everyday realism

Day to day normality

    good morning dear poet, your 3rd stanza hit me like a brick, i came to Italy 20 years ago as a young lady hoping to try something new, without documents and without stress, just hopes and dreams and then there was brexit--------- which means it won't be the same again for anyone who is like me....
    oh boy as we wish love could behold the haters to change their attitudes but just 5 years ago i saw different. as usual you have a wonderful message with rhyming to perfection. i think you could be an angel my dear A.P there's nothing wrong with wanting peace and happiness for all. now i'm just waffling, as usual.
    that is why your title is perfect.

      waff on my dear lady, waff on and on as much as you like. Me, an Angel? Guess I haven't earned my wings yet, so I'll keep trying. ; )

        Nice utopian poem AP. We will get there one day

      • Doggerel Dave

        Ah - if only..... Title's got a lot going for it, AP. No harm in dreaming - occasionally.

      • Joe Dawson

        A meaningful write AP and a message of love the world would do well to heed. Inspiring work. Joe


        If nothing else, we can hope and dream, and now it seems that’s all we can do.
        But a wonderful world you create here.

        If only…….

        A good day for me starting and ending with The Moody Blues.
