The Portal

It came to me in
repeated dreams:
Keep them in a
contained portal
and when you
are in need
open it and
let them be
(come).
My wishes,
hopes and
yearnings
are held within
a pink, tinted jar,
ready and waiting
for happy beginnings.

Bjorn is back from his hiatus and hosts our Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets…please join us!

  5. I like this, not rose-colored glasses used to shield your view from life’s less pleasant things, but a rose colored jar you knowing open to come to happy endings. Lovely!

  9. Sad, in a way. A strategy, perhaps, a useful strategy but a sad reality. Nicely put. If I understood it correctly.

  25. If I had such a jar, I would be tempted to keep it open all the time. Why limit the dreams and hopes from popping out? ;)
