My fantasy world

is one where everyone is kind.
gentle, full of understanding,
tolerance and respect for life,

where differing points of view
can be discussed intelligently,
without acrimony or violence;

where politicians are in it for the good of all,
incorruptible, with no axe to grind,
no pockets to line.

where there is satisfying work for everyone,
effort is rewarded justly,
with a happy home to shelter them;

where the vulnerable are protected,
boredom, pain and stress are banished
and all the world is smiling.

 dVerse Poetics prompt today is to let the imagination run riot, to have fun.  And I sort of have done, but every news bulletin brings more conflict and tragedy into our homes, so my fantasy is not exactly fun, but remedial.

  1. How sad that it will remain a fantasy world.

    How one yearns and clamor for the goodness of all and sundry. A perfect world goes loco and topsy-turvy as dictated by human failings is what one sees. Greed and power are the elements that breed inequalities. Wonderful lines Viv!



  3. Many words describe Heaven!


  4. Until we learn how to respect eachother, that will remain a fantasy… Which is pretty sad… With so much hate in this world, it’s hard to have faith that peace will conquer… 😦

    oh i would love to live in such a world as well… and in the everyday try to do my share that the world is a bit a better place…


  6. This is certainly a beautiful fantasy and there are truly modern pockets of civilization of much smaller peaceful societies that truly live life in a sharing and cooperative way.. where collection and separation of humanity has not spoiled that way of peaceful easy living spirit of humanity as ONE force of LOVE.. overaALL..:)

    And to live there is certainly to be blessed…in a word gone insane in so many other ways..:)


  7. How sad for us all that this feels so much like a never to be known fantasy. Our world is in dire need of kindness and acceptance.


  8. Mary says:

    Too bad that such a world really seems to be a fantasy, Viv! It seems like it could be possible….but alas….


  9. brian miller says:

    what a world it would be eh? if only we could achieve such a place….how fun would it be to actually debate and reason through our difficulties knowing the other would respect your POV and consider it…

    If only it was not a fantasy ……


  11. Sabio Lantz says:

    truly a fantasy ! Boredom banished? Right
    Great fun — cool writing


  12. Polly says:

    I like your fantasy world…if only…


  13. Prajakta says:

    Now, this is called a moment of “if only!”


  14. Misky says:

    Oh yes, please. I’d like that too.


  15. A wonderful fantasy.. If just a world where we can just gently disagree… and still listen, where sharing seems natural, and we see the human in everyone first and foremost.
