I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Dare I Dream is a poem written from a picture challenge. It's about a little girl dreaming of her wedding. She pictures the dress she will wear when she marries her prince charming. But she's lived over half her life with no perfect mate. Her dress is vintage, but she keeps dreaming in her heart.
"Lavender's Blue Dilly Dilly - Lyrics (Cinderella 2015 Movie Soundtrack) by Muffin Songs "
Dare I dream
the impossible dream?
As a young girl I pictured myself
wearing a beautiful silk, Cinderella ballroom dress,
a form fitting silhouette
with bare shoulders,
the bottom a long, puffy skirt
blue pastel in color
highlighted with a touch
of airy light pastel shades
which swept along the floor
as I danced with my Prince Charming,
perhaps on my wedding day.
I have lived over half my life,
is fading into the distance,
finding no Prince Charming
worth the expense.
The design now vintage,
my dream seems impossible
as I look into the distance.
Should I give up?
Nothing is impossible,
it is never too late.
I will dare to dream
the impossible dream.
