Poem of the Day: ‘Alternate Lives’

I think it’s okay to day-dream. In fact, if done with honest intentions for action, it may even be healthy in an aspiration sort of way. So, here’s my take on day-dreaming, in a poem I entitle, “Alternate Lives”.

All my life
I have been dreaming
of alternate lives
so that I can stop
dreaming of alternate lives.
You can call me a day dreamer,
but I would be happier
if you call me a bee
of the invisibles,
who kept longing for
that sublime state
where the rose ever bloom
