I do lots of daydreaming. I remember when
As a child I enjoyed it perhaps more than now.
There was no one to boss me around and no one
Making any demands on me. It was sheer fun
Just to let my mind wander. Without knowing how
I could stay much more in alignment way back then.
I remember that feeling I had when I played
Among thick lilac bushes as I would pretend
To have fashioned my own vortex of creation.
Within it I would find complete fascination.
There was nothing complex for me to comprehend.
Through that innocent stage of life I had it made.
I could do as I felt in my sanctuary
In the back yard. I felt that I was in control
Of my universe. It didn’t matter to me
Whether anyone outside of my world could see
As I saw. I was not striving to reach a goal.
The only rule that I had was to be happy.
That’s powerful creation. By setting aside
Time for myself, I’m doing my best to maintain
My alignment. Much freedom I have to take care
Of the things that most matter. I’m now more aware
Of how much in the way of true joy I can gain
From my daydreaming when it’s righteously applied.
