Vision – a poem about what might be

We all need a vision of something to aspire to, simple or complicated, big or small. What’s your vision?


I’ve been toying with a vision

It isn’t very big,

A simple life with nature

Like a blade of grass or twig.


A Hippie cottage by the sea

With flowers and shells and cabbage,

Uncomplicated but sophisticated,

Relieved from rat race bondage.


Or what about a longboat

Not the Viking kind at sea,

The cosy, wood burning, stuck in a lock sort;

Perhaps a canal too far for me.


Do I need to have a limit?

Are my aims a little small?

Would a Ferrari and infinity pool

Be an order slightly too tall?

You have to cling to something

While adrift on life’s life raft,

Or today’s work’s all for nothing.

I’ve got a vision. Don’t be daft.
