“I DREAM of flying”

MrT8J.png

 Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” - Carl Jung


 “I dream of flying”

But I am not a winged creature

And flight is not a human feature

Still I dream of flying

.. flitting in the forest from tree to tree

.. over limbs wrapped in crimson & gold

xNiws.png

Seeing beauty from above

Catching eyes of those I love

I fly through rain .. a bow to see

Wonder of wonders just for me ;~)

I catch the end of the rainbow

But find no pot of gold

A fairy tale we’re told ;~)

NL3NQ.png

As I fly

There is “WONDER” .. in every thing

Such “GLORY” makes me want to sing

Creation reveals such a Mighty Power

Below .. like a blanket are lush meadows of flowers

.. the blossoms covered by bees … like poised prancers

.. and grasses that moves in the wind … like dancers

In the distance the mountains stand guard

.. wearing crowns of glistening white snow

.. I glide down ..

There is so much NOISE !!*!!

People rushing here & there

.. some seem bent on purpose ..

.. others seem “wanderers in search of nothing" -Tausif

I think their eyes are open ..

.. but I’m not sure they’re awake

Many people are hiding behind smiles

.. but I’m not sure they’re happy

.. Hardly anyone looks up ..

I sit on a branch to watch children laughing & playing

They see me & giggle .. their smiles ricocheting

There is JOY in this place .. I wish I were staying

XeRl2.png

Now I feel like I’m hovering over the earth

In some places there is so much distress

Is that the earth I hear groaning?

I wish for a rain .. that could wash away pain

When I fly nearer ..

I sense great danger

My heart aches for the people below

Who haven’t learned to fly

I urge them .. but they won’t even try

Their fears weigh them down

My tears mark that ground

Higher I fly .. I am not held by the sky

There I see souls .. that are shaped like ships

.. they are floating on air .. carrying precious cargo

.. there are no windows but .. I sense much love inside

.. some ships are surrounded by schools of fish ;~)

.. around those is an aura of awe and PEACE

I dreamed of flying

I wake too soon .. "goodnight moon"

In the quiet .. birds begin their morning song

In the early moments between dusk & dawn

.. I look up .. through the window

The sky is filled with clouds

.. yet they perfectly frame the moon

.. like a Divine eye ..

The moon is a Light-bearing pupil

I hold my breath in awe

.. I am convinced ..

God is watching us
 

                                                                                                                  Yes .. God is watching us

                                                                                                          I have a Friend who fly’s with me

                                                                                                          But He’s a Spirit .. you can’t see

                                                                                                          He made the sun & moon & stars 

                                                                                                          He is near .. though He seems so far


 

Our dreams reflect a thought machine

What thoughts from flying might you glean?


 

“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” Henry David Thoreau


 

This poem is dedicated to 3 beautiful bees that always inspire with their words:

@FatimaWilliams for her “Flying without Wings”

https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fatima-williams/flying-without-wings

@TausifMundrawala for his “Thorns”

https://www.bebee.com/producer/@tausif-mundrawala/thorns-strewn-road-ahead#c6

@AliAnani for “Choices of no return”

https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/choices-of-no-return-point#c89

My words stopped being a "draft" November 14th 2019

I write: “In His Light”~ Fay Vietmeier
 

If my words make you think … Great ;~)

As “iron-sharpens-iron” … I enjoy brushing antenna’s with other BEES … feedback is as “honey”

A glimpse of the “Bee” called “me” ;~)

My curious nature makes me a “queen of questions” … but gifted with the ability to listen ;~) I'm a woman of deep faith, a blessed mother, a voracious reader, a blossoming writer, a grateful person, and a lover of beauty … I treasure family, true friendships and my loyal clients ... enjoy traveling, learning, good movies, good wine and golf. I’m a heart-to-heart communicator.

Randall Burns Thank you for sharing the "Guide" ... surely we all are "hitchhikers in the Galaxy" much in need of a "Guide" (I may ponder a poem about this ;~) I was doing a Google on the book (was not familiar with it) this quote: made me LAUGH ;~) “Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Now I do not know what you think about the politics here in the USA (did not look to see where you reside) I wrote a lengthy poem "The Swamp" (awhile back) ... and was inspired to add: The Swamp ~ Impeach" (which I started a few days ago) I may incorporate that quote ;~) If the book holds that kind of humor I will read it (It's now on my "list") "There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss." Have you done this? From a glimpse at your writing ... you are adventurous ;~) What do your words say about you? (another poem-well received on beBee) https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/what-do-your-words-say-about-you

On a lighter note I don't know if you're familiar with "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", by Douglas Adams but he has the best explanation/instruction/secret on how we fly; "There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. Pick a nice day, [The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy] suggests, and try it. The first part is easy. All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and the willingness not to mind that it's going to hurt. That is, it's going to hurt if you fail to miss the ground. Most people fail to miss the ground, and if they are really trying properly, the likelihood is that they will fail to miss it fairly hard. Clearly, it is the second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties"

Great poem Fay Vietmeier. I do understand the metaphor/analogy that is projecting your wonderful message I must say that I do have frequently recurring dreams of flying, (seriously), and your imagery is very reminiscent of those dreams. Great job!

Pascal Derrien Thank you Pascal for reading my words and kindly responding ... as you always do even when not in agreement ... completely ;~) Is there anything in particular that goes against your current? I love "bee banter"

Tausif Mundrawala Your kind & encouraging words of praise ... made this bee ... SMILE ;~) As I read these poems that I wrote on my Birthday came to mind ... I LOVE the brevity of Haiku 1) Savor time today Life hour-glass is rushing ;~) Grate-FULL is my heart 2) Decades slipping by Choices made cannot be changed Nor life rearranged 3) Son-Light every day Possibilities unfold Where will my heart lead? Your words always reflect the humility & gratitude in your heart ... You are very special & unique in a rushing ... self-oriented ... discontented ... and often ungrateful world (I see your post on contentment and am headed there) Tausif~Your are among those that I (in a short time) have identified as "the best of bees" How beautiful is a bee like thee ;~)
