Daydream Believer

If we’re really living it
there’s nothing trivial about life
we all differ in what feeds our soul
but
every little thing is significant
to us, one way or another.

I halt the walk
through the rat maze
long enough to observe the
life in trees.
I see the veins in leaves
(imagine)
this too, is me
every vein matters
no matter how small
and, the sap within.
How can we ignore
the importance of it all
when in truth
it is all there is.

Life in all its pain and glory.

At the end of everyday madness
I cast myself away
drift once more in daydreams
where a pen guides all thought
across an empty page
and
I’ll write once more
that I would still risk anything, for love.

Daydreaming/Meditation/Pondering life’s daily events while listening to soft music in the background or, in silence, is where most of my inspiration to write comes from.  But, while I love this time of quiet reflection, I do live in the real-life (mess) of this world.
But without our hopes and our dreams which feed us, keep us wanting to achieve, what do we have left?

  1. The passage between the central train station and the main tube station here in Stockholm is called, roughly translated, The Rat Hall (råttgången). For some reason this made me think of what that dreary place could be with a bit of sunshine and a magic tree growing out of the center of it… Quite a daydream… *smile*

  2. I halt the walk
    through the rat maze
    long enough to observe the
    life in trees.
    I see the veins in leaves
    (imagine)
    this too, is me
    every vein matters
    no matter how small
    and, the sap within.

    I just love this idea that we’re as these veins…this sap microscopically huge and integral!! Wonderful poem, Bren!!

  3. Simple yet profound. I like the idea that “we all differ in what feeds our soul”.
    The poem states three blessed sources: “nature, writing and love”.
    Enjoyed reading your poem, Bren.

  4. Lovely poem, Bren. Yes, it’s the little things that matter. Life is precious in every single detail, even the veins of leaves. Love is worth risking for 🙂

  5. “If we’re really living it
    there’s nothing trivial about life”

    Those first two lines should be required memorization for everyone, so true! This is such a beautifully written poem, and I have to agree that love is worth risking anything…everything…to try to find! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Poetry Jam this week!

  6. We see the veins of life in a leaf and should compare it with our own. But do we? The smaller the example to bigger the meaning.

  7. A meaningful piece of writing…and yes, every vein matters. Small things make up a whole. And love is definitely something one should take a risk for!

  8. In the end, we all pick up the pen to clarify and serve each other because: “I see the veins in leaves / (imagine) / this too, is me / every vein matters / no matter how small / and, the sap within.” and because “If we’re really living it / there’s nothing trivial about life.” Knowing this you show us yourself so beautifully affirming the close of day drift and the way to Love. Pow!

  9. some days, daydreaming is my state of mind….wonderful message to stop and smell the roses, and, one more thing – thanx for the Monkees earworm….

  10. We’re lucky to have something productive to help us relax from life’s stress.

  11. This is powerful and real. Too often we do tend to live life like it’s a rat’s maze – the only point is to get to the prize at the end. The risk is worth being able to pick up a pen and write about real things. So beautiful.

  12. This poem is full of tenderness courage and foolhardiness.Only certain people risk everything for love. Many think they are foolish..I’m not one of them.I agree in the end it is all there is.. even with the inevitable pain it is better to be alive than a dead man walking.

  13. Certainly nothing trivial, Bren! Agreed wholeheartedly. It’s all up to us, no one else to bother. We set ourselves at our own pace and enjoy every minute of it, all at our own time! Great write!

  14. It’s all about the little things..there is a real pleasure in how you end with picking up the pen..armed to tackle the ‘big’ things..Jae
