“ Shovelling Clouds ” ~ for dreams he dares ~

He’s not immune

To implausible dreams,

Those he dares

Meant be so bold,

He’ll forego care

That be not in tune,

To imaged notions

Of man-made reason,

For his give life

To every season…

Shovelling clouds

He clears a path

Thru stayed emotions,

That but dictate

One ought fear life

Of dreams that urge

We build a world

With clouds of wonder,

Thus so forsaking

Man’s dreary rituals,

He’ll shovel clouds

To so lay bare

The dreams he dares!
