|Reviews for Wishful Thoughts of a Stranger|
| Manuel Fajar 11/20/06 . chapter 1
¿Do those dreams, that we dreamt & forgot,—
Find safe refuge from all of life's troubles,—
Find green lands where white unicorns gallop,—
Or, Atlantis where blue mermaids swim swift?
Hard to say of conjectures so vague held,—
& Glimpses ethereal of fay fairies,—
& Voices so soft little and brittle,—
That tell us of strange glories not lived yet;
Hard to say of illusions that youth had,—
'Bout what constitutes love and true friendship,—
'Bout what choices uncertain to make,—
So that life could course roads slightly travelled;
But now that autumn has bared all tree tops,
While cold winds under gray clouds blow brown sear,—
While heart longs for a tropic so distant,—
Soul realizes,—Her passage, is near.

It's a great poem, packed with imagery and powerful words. I especially enjoyed the last lines. I could sorta relate, but I think I found SOMEONE yesterday. _ It's pretty descriptive, good job!
