a fleck of sand

i have been thinking about
wishes and dreams
that i have.
are they doable,
are they possible,
will they ever come to pass?
when i contemplated these questions
only one thought came to mind - 

a tiny fleck of sand

how could this be?
either a wish or a dream?
so small and worthless,
no purpose,
no life,
it's a teensy little thing -

this fleck of sand

i figured there must be some significance,
something here that i cannot see - 
i must dig deeper,
much further
in order to find 
why a tiny fleck of sand
has invaded my mind.


i sat back in my chair
turned my imagination on
to find some sort of meaning
to this teensy tiny thing.

what first came to mind
was an ocean so big
then cacti and tumbleweed
in a desert so dry.
there were beaches and dunes,
dry air and lizards,
seashells and salt air
with gulls flying high.

after sitting and searching
for what seemed a very long time,
i felt defeated and sad
about this

 tiny fleck of sand


it hit me
like lightning 
probably in front of me
all along 

this tiny fleck of sand
represents one thought
amongst many.
no boundaries,
no limits. 
they are there
for the choosing - 
we only need to open our eyes to see.

each person
is part of something
more than just one,
dreams and wishes
can be found everywhere
there is never just one,

forever and ever

for us all.

so many places to gobut where?

so many places to go
but where?

      thanks for reblogging this. you are so sweet. the funny thing is i have been thinking about dreams. i have them for my boys but for me i just get stuck. for some reason, sand popped into my head – and dreams came out of that – hope you are having or had a good day – not certain where you are on this planet;)

    Loved it, and so true.

      I have been wanting to write about dreams – I am having trouble finding some – for me. Never a shortage for my boys. How sand came into my head, I have no idea. It just did.

      thanks for reading:)
