These five short stanzas attempt like haiku's to convey one author's thoughts.


To dream is to lose one's mind
And flee the rational precincts of being
And enter the quantum mechanics of consciousness
And beyond.

To be great is to be alone
And experience the waves of life
Crashing on your beach.

To feel completely is to feel another
And try with everything to understand
Someone else's scars.

To embrace one's self is to face grandeur
And recognize a spirit dancing
Throughout the universe.

One thing is certain: nothing is assured--
Yet in and out of sleep's dominions,
Love remains.
