Something New

“Something New”

I woke one day in a dream
To an unfamiliar place
Instead of cold familiarity
Sun shown bright upon my face

Wiping my eyes to clear them
Making sure it was really thus
I looked around in grandeur
This dream world to entrust

The greenest grass
The bluest skies
The clearest waters
Made me blink my eyes

Where is this place?
How long can I stay?
Dare I explore?
How will I find my way?

For a moment I was frightened
The unknowing frame of mind
Then the child in me surfaced
Wondering what I would find.

All thoughts of the old world
Left my mind without reserve
I stood and wandered aimless
Something simple and so pure

Each little nuance
I discovered along the way
Took but a moment to look at
Before I tucked it away

Many things I saw
I never took to keep
But left them in their place
Much to my relief

I only picked up things
That brought a smile to my heart
And left behind the burdens
Which tear us all apart

I returned to sit alone
Pockets emptied to my view
And realized I had collected
Beautiful thoughts of something new
