I dreamed your voice

I dreamed your voice,
waking with
always that leap forward
this heart takes
when it hears you

if want
can span this stretch,
lift spirit free from strings
& fly

I know, precisely
where mine would go
unheeding & careless

of what it leaves here
still bound

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Gorgeous writing,
    “if want

    lift spirit free from strings
    & fly”

    Sometimes, I have had such dreams…beyond surreal and difficult to realize, yet addictive to stay on. It’s more like that first high which a junkie perpetually chases.

    The power of the mind and its desires transcend physical boundries yet limited by them. Such irony… such poesy…. such class… I like!
