When Dreams Stream Into Prominence


When Dreams Stream Into Prominence


Cry only when all hope is lacking,

but only then.

Partial failings do not set the daily bet.


The once reluctant aspect

of opening your heart

flips itself on its head,

gaining positive momentum,

spiraling upward,

landing on a sturdy girder of a splendid edifice

which once built secures hopes and dreams.


Whatever warnings you think you’ve heard,

when it all feels right,

hold your new truths ever dearer.


Rhetoric can never be affirmed,

so downplay its squat and ugly impact,

give and accept tenderness to and from all sides.


When your life becomes a halcyon affair,

tranquil brilliance will stream into prominence,

and you will do no harm.
