There’s good news tonight!
Everything is all right!
Skies are bright.
No one fights.
No more might
makes right!
No problems in sight.
Till dawn’s early light,
there’s good news tonight!
But with the dawn comes this fright,
those dreams vanish with the light!

  1. Hi Walter, dreams can be a salvation…coincidentally my quadrille is a happy daydream…so many nightmarish happenings these days it’s important to be able to envisage something better. I like how you sustained one rhyme.

    True that, brother–many of us are responding to another day of BS, chaos, alternate facts, & constitution-bashing. Your manic dream sets the perfect tone.

  3. Your rhyming is pure ‘delight.’ We all need to hang onto our dreams even if they seem to vanish in dawn’s light. There will be another dawn where we don’t have to fight to keep our dreams.

    1. We should never stop dreaming, Angela. Impressed by your profile and your search. I have been on that journey, in spite of all I’ve seen and accomplished. We all have messy parts! So I dream. I dream for a better life for the me I am and those around me. And I try to make as many of those reality when I can. And we belong wherever we find ourselves! As you said, keep on dreamin’!
