Pondering the need to escape the burdens and complexities of modern life.

Sometimes I think, sometimes I dream
Of future times that may be less mean
When peeps can tell the truth all day
Not hide behind some smoke screen play

If all the world had listened well
When John imagined and did tell
Everyone that they could change
The world from war to peace ain’t strange

Not that I was so deluded
To think that all would be included
For many evil plans remain
Too many men are quite insane

Megalomania must be epidemic
Greed is surely now systemic
Commercial interests rule ever more
Their power exceeds countries for sure

Ah but we few long for more
cooperation and love to endure
Mesmerized by beauty that transcends
The cheats and bullies and poor pretense

Come to dance amongst the trees
We can join the birds and bees
Avoid the traps of urban wares
Strip away those worldly cares

Circle round a simple fire
Nothing more than root desire
Poise and grace and passions freed
Indulge in just our basic needs

Hold the torches for the other
Maybe we can still yet discover
What man once did have to leave
When he first chose to deceive

Sometimes I dream……

    What can I say simply gorgeous my favorite lines:

    Come to dance amongst the trees
    We can join the birds and bees
    Avoid the traps of urban wares
    Strip away those worldly cares

    Circle round a simple fire
    Nothing more than root desire
    Poise and grace and passions freed
    Indulge in just our basic needs
