Intro to Poetry – Day Ten – Future

Experimenting with the king of poetic forms, the sonnet – a 14-Line-verse poem (rhymed — or not) usually grouped into four stanzas of 4-4-3-3 lines expressing one unified thought or emotion.

Dreams of the Future

Looking into the future could be easy if it was just a dream

I could fly if I had wings

Maybe I should be a fairy living in a wonderland with the birds and animals

That really how I would like to be.

Writing and reading without a care in the world

No one sitting waiting for a meal

No dirty washing waiting to be laundered

Or a un-made bed waiting for clean sheets.

It’s time to be myself not run by everything else

My body is tired it’s just about run out of energy

After years of nothing but work.

Should my heart decide to take a holiday

I just wish I could spend my later years

Resting my head in the world of wonderland with the birds and animals.
