today i crave adventure.
perhaps in far away lands.
perhaps with someone i love.
who loves me too.
i think i am imagining fairy tales.
or at least a lovely piece of fiction.
but wouldn't it be nice.
to escape into a storybook land.
i'd probably have on a flowy, floral dress.
and my hair would be longer.
and i would be thinner.
and more exciting.
maybe i'd be exploring a castle.
or resting in a field of daffodils.
or playing with woodland creatures.
oh silly me.
trying to escape reality.
but can't my reality be adventure?
maybe instead of closing my eyes to dream,
i should be opening my eyes to truly see,
all the love
and moments that have a special magic of their own.
maybe then the cravings would cease
and i could live
exactly where i am.
and maybe that's the key
to the secret garden
of abundant living.
seeing what is Real.
seeing the beauty of it all.
and being a part of it...
you have definitely given me
to think about
