In A Reverie

A  L  O  H  A !

"Sit in reverie and watch 
the changing color of
 the waves that break 
upon the idle seashore 
of the mind."
            Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Thought is the labor 
of the intellect,
reverie is its pleasure."
                     Victor Hugo

"Any creation of art 
is conceived and born 
under influences, amidst the 
atmosphere of reverie. . . "
Emile Galle

"Do anything rather than 
give yourself to reverie." 
                William Ellery Channing
                 [William Ellery Channing was the foremost 
                 Unitarian preacher in the United States 
               in the early nineteenth century] 


Some people
like to travel by car.

Others prefer
to walk.

I like to move about
in a reverie,
relaxed open awareness,
that's me!


In a reverie
that's where I want to be.
Wrapped in a tingle
vibrating with the woof and wingle.
All life's wisdom do I possess.
Now if I could only
choose the right dress.

Thank YOU
