Wishful Wordle


I wish for clarity of thought
for the leaders of the world ─
naked truth wrapped inside  mercy,
kindness, gentle wisdom,
integrity and most of all,
for common sense.


I wish that I had wings
to fly around the world ─
see unseen mountains, rivers, plains and forests.
I want to meet my virtual friends
around the world, many for the first time ──
turn virtual into reality.

    My wishes are the same as yours, all of them. I think I’ve given up on politicians ever retaining common sense, though. They are led by almost anything else. Top of my list is to meet so many of my cyber friends, to sit and just talk with them. I love what you have written,

  6. I share those wishes, Viv. Common sense is an all too rare commodity these days it seems. Or maybe I’m just getting old and cranky. And wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to fly and meet one another, all of these people we have grown to care about through blogging and have never met. We share so much of our lives, of ourselves with one another through poetry.

    Two poems, two points of view; nicely done, Viv. I like the second poem best; like you, I would love to meet many of the cyber friends we interact with often.
