Can you see it?

Are you aware of it?

Can you answer questions

Before they are asked?

Can you see what will happen

Before it happens?

Many say they can.

Can you?

Can I?

Do you have feelings of dread,

Or feelings of joy,

Of events

That are about to happen?

If you do,

Or if I do,

Why can’t we change our world

So that we will be able to see it,

At peace,

And full of love,

Or cannot peace and love

Ever be foreseen.

    A fine write G/F. I will believe in prophecy, but not clairvoyancy. It seems spooky to me. Who is Claire? Ms Voyancy? Me jokes get worse!

      Thanks Orchi, are you sure they are not there, always look behind you.

      I was there in 1066, saying 'cooeee'. Everyone wishes I was not there, cos I mucked it up for Harold!

      we can work with the future but we cannot change it. no matter what we think, do, feel, or say. free will or not. we are not able to change the future

      • Goldfinch60

        Very true Paul, we cannot change the past either. Thanks for your comment, much appreciated.

        Thanks ANDY we can only ponder ~ perceive and prophesy things as they where are and will be ! We cannot alter the Past or Present and we have to be realistic about our "Vision of the Future" Thanks for CARING ~ BRIAN

        • Goldfinch60

          Thanks Brian. May the future be bright.

          I like that, makes you think. More fakes per half acre than anywhere else on the planet at a clairvoyants gala. Why don't clairvoyants get cheaper motor insurance?

          • Goldfinch60

            Thanks b-e it amazes me when they turn up to a gala that has been postponed.

            • burning-embers

              Ha ha ha that's funny mister. You made i larff!

              I am with Orchi - when it comes to clairvoyancy but yes those moments of dread as to what the future holds are so poignant .

              • Goldfinch60

                Thanks Michael but there are always those unexplained moments.

                I am one who sometimes answers questions b-4 they are asked. sometimes I know some things b-4 they happen, but it doesn't do me any good. and I've seen ghosts, too. and I have witnesses. thanks for this write!

                respectfully, Cat

                  Thanks Cat, some things do seem inexplicable.
