Are You Awake Yet?


I Know It's Early In The Morning

I couldn't wait to ask

How are you feeling?

What's new?

That is as genuine and real as it gets

Life can be a strange and a wonderful place

People all over the world

Are living and experiencing

Something so unbelievable

One magnificient life

All at the same time

The whole human race covers it pretty good

I know people love to point out the bad

I will spend my entire life

Doing the opposite

Finding the good

What part do animals play in our life?

I am willing to bet

You are going to say a major part

Without them where would we be?

Some animals we need to eat to survive

Others become our loyal companions

Always by our side

Yet we never hear people say

To all the animals and people of the world

Lets see if we can finally understand each other

Up to now people all over the world

Keep wanting to fight each other

I know a lot of people who love their pets

They really enjoy having a dog or a cat

The animal becomes so special

If people abuse an animal they can go to jail

Scientists all say we are smarter than animals

I think animals are smarter than us

They don't kill one another for greed and absolutely no reason

Yet people still do

Some animals become such a special part of our family

I know our own cat has made my wife and I

Very happy

Then on other times quite puzzled also

We keep to ourselves

Once and awhile

We might share a story or two

Around friends and neighbors

Even with our own family

We have recieved mixed reviews

Some people can relate and tell us their own story

Other people listen and don't really understand

Or at least they are not willing to show it

Animals do something people can't seem to get right

Love unconditionally

I wish people could learn from them

Then just maybe we could all find a good way

To get along

Live with all nationalities

As one

Just a thought, a fantasy and a dream all rolled together

I am always willing to go out on a limb

Expressing my views

No matter how unpopular or uncommon they may be

Hoping that one day they may turn into reality

I would love them all but my wife would kill me. Both of us decided that Charlotte would be our last cat. We plan on doing some traveling in the next few years and having no pets we can come and go as we please. With kittens, they can live up to twenty years. I would love to see pictures and please keep me updated on their progress. Cami and I love kittens and all cats. I hope you are having a great time. They are so cuddly and soft. Thank you for your comment it is amazing and special as you.

John Hansen I read your comments and then I sit back and let them resonate inside of me. I like to think I am an active volcano ready to erupt just don't know when. Instead of doing harm and destruction. I explode good and well being. I keep on thinking up things and sayings like this to keep me focused and on track. Someone once said I am hyper-focused and it isn't a good thing. I think the opposite and think it is a wonderful thing. There is a downside that I have to consider.When I do anything I get so involved that I seem to forget everything else around me. So when I go out in the yard to cut grass that is the only thing I have on my mind. I think about it so vividly that I am in the moment. If it is two hours outside I let every grass idea and thought go through my head. I experience the good and the bad. The great smells and the bugs. The weeds and the way the lawn mower cuts good or bad if I let the grass get too tall. I had an electric mower that was also a mulcher it worked really good but it was way to slow. I wanted it so bad and begged my wife to get it and now that I have had it I have to eat my words. It wasn't the best idea. It works so good at mulching leaves but it takes forever. So I curse and then bless what I do have at the same time. I have bought gas mowers that work so good and at the end of a year or two; they won't start the following year. I have put gas additives and drained the gas. The mowers served me well I just wanted ten more years and not have to buy another one. The mowers themselves are good and sometimes I dent a blade and the carburetor gets clogged. I plan on fixing them and I have seen other people do it. I talk to those other people and they work alone. I go on the internet and everything looks like a foreign language to me. I am not mechanically inclined but I keep at it. Then, of course, my wife calls me and I am to the races. Things take time and time is something I don't always have. My wife says just get rid of them. They make the yard look messy and I have to agree with her. Then again part of me doesn't want to quit. I have been doing lots of yard work and less writing. I miss writing but the weather has been nice and I have to use it to my advantage. Thank you for reading my hubs and all the special and lovely comments. I will get back to you as soon as possible. I don't like excuses but here I go making a list of them. Go figure. It is like making plans to go to Venus.162 million miles away. Is it practical probably not? Would it be exciting definitely? In 1966 Russia sent a spacecraft to reach Venus. Interesting facts. have a wonderful morning.

You and I both like animals? Can I ship you some kittens? One of the cats here Oreo had a kitten explosion. There are now four kittens in my closet still too little to leave mama. Mama chose my apartment because I am all alone here except for my cat Sid who comes and goes so it was a safe place. There are two black and white mixes, one almost all black with some white and one gray who knows where he came from.

You have such a great view of life and the world DreamOn, and in fact this world would be a much better place if more people had the same attitude. I know I try. Your name is perfect for you, and do me a favour..never stop “dreaming on.”

John Hansen I appreciate all the tips and the link. I am not too computer savvy so you would be surprised how thankful and grateful I am. It is easy to hide behind a computer screen and try to make it look good. Luckily you can't see me shaking in my boots when I get confused or lost. I do what I know and eventually, I will grow. I am so simple and if you were to cut me open I would be hollow except for a magnifying glass inside. I swallowed it years ago to magnify all the beauty that I see and have never stopped since. Thank you for being a friend. Have a great day. I hope you are outside too. Enjoying the beauty of life and all that we see and feel.

John Hansen I am so glad we get a chance to experience the joy of knowing each other and the way each of us lives. You express yourself very well when I keep trying but for me, it is more difficult. It is like cutting through a watermelon without a knife. I know the watermelon is in there it is just a question of when and how I can get at it. Other people make it look easy. I tend to follow the path less taken. When they waste watermelon because they forgot to eat it. They cut it with a lot of watermelon still left on the rind. I enjoy all the watermelon and make sure it never goes to waste. Delicious from the first to the last bite. Sharing it is even more fun. I think like this often and most people think why? I guess the only answer I have is because I love watermelon and it brings me endless joy. Here is just one crazy example that I carry the same philosophy in all other areas of my life. I can get so busy that I have to slow down. I try to find everything I do as interesting and beautiful. Then I am farthest from what so many people suffer from depression, anger, hate, violence the list is endless. I am too busy trying to improve on myself it keeps my mind off all the bad in the world. I hope if more people set a good example then other good people will follow and not because they have to but because they want to. I know life is the most precious thing in the world. Every day we have less and less of it. Well off to my yard and cutting down some weeds that don't belong in the flower bed. Thank you for all that you do. Have an inspirational and incredible day.

Hi DreamOn, here is a link to my poem: https://discover.hubpages.com/literature/Life-is-G...

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on May 23, 2019:

DreamOn (Mike) your views echo mine in almost every way. It is good to talk to someone on the other side of the world with similar views. I am actually in the process of writing a poem that I think I will call "Life is Good." Maybe you would like to read it when I publish it here. I can't imagine life without animals/pets in it.
