Dream


"Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be."

~ Karen Ravn


And from Dream by Susan V. Bosak:
I understood that the world at its best
is green.
Dreams grow like seeds.
They need to take root,
then stretch toward the sun.
They grow slowly. 
They must be tended to. 
And sometimes a gray day
gives them just the rain they need.

Dream a dream with me!
