Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

A Blank Stare


Daydreaming can happen
just about anywhere.
You sit down for a few moments,
and suddenly your mind just drifts away.
You start dreaming of things
that happened in your yesterdays.
One minute you are in real time,
next you’re gone to imaginary.
No one can tell when these dreams
are going to happen.
If anyone sees you,
for their money they get
just a blank stare.

    I sometimes daydream when driving, and wonder how i got there?
    my eyes are glued to the road, but my brain seems to be elsewhere
    I'm quite sure if danger was present, i would surly react
    but ninety five percent of me is dreaming, honestly that's a fact!

    Poets are dreamers first! time is a plane of multiple interactions with past memories, the now and the will be.....in a blend of hues in vacant eyes and sky blues (Report) Reply

    I see the kids doing it - often. Just sitting and staring... It's good to let them be too - to follow their imaginations - you never know, you might just be nurturing a new poet. Great piece. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
