Have you followed dreams that appeared to lead nowhere?
Have you repressed dreams that seemed impossible?
Have you ridiculed dreams that were out of your league?
Have you mistaken fantasies for genuine dreams,
Or even substituted depression in their rightful place?
So I write this today to provide a record, a touchstone,
To refer to in the future,
To remind me that
Sometimes following the call of a yearning leads
Sometimes, if we can catch a yearning in motion, and
Courageously ponder the audacity of “why not?”
We find ourselves lifted up and beyond,
Surprised by a soft landing.
