Joe Dawson

Catch the wind

Where to my love, my darling girl,

If I should have the means?

To take you anywhere you wish,

Beyond your wildest dreams?


Hot stuff at the check-in,

A film star cabin crew.

Your wish is their command my dear,

They’d move the world for you.


What silhouette might first I see,

As you depart the ‘plane?

Or might it be a rocket ship,

On a planet far away?


Your wildest dreams are wonder dreams,

No rules to bar the flight,

No runway that cannot be reached,

No wish to land denied.


What vehicle might you best select?

what colour, make and trim?

A sports car or a limousine,

A coupe to catch the wind?


Would you sit behind like royalty,

Or sit up front with me?

Your chauffeur for the journey,

Your guide to make-believe.

              Thank you Laura, do you know, I don't know why, but I somehow think she will, in fact, I am certain she will. Lovely to hear from you. Joe

              Joe , I think after that she got well very quickly and she's off - if you drop everything , you might just catch her....
              Nice well constructed (as usual) fantasy.

              PS: Hope she indeed will be well very quickly.

              • Joe Dawson

                Thank you DD, I really hope so, my fondest wish is that she does, and very soon. Joe

                  'Your wildest dreams are *wondrousness weaved*'
                  (please forgive
                  my impertinently overzealous nature, dear poet
                  I mean no disrespect, sincerely)
                  thanks for sharing a delectably sumptuous read

                  • Joe Dawson

                    The gem through which we view poetry has many facets, oftentimes, each one as polished as the one before. Thank you, 'delectably sumptuous' has made my day. Joe
