To Dream

I would hope to die, soon,
should I grow too old to dream,
to believe in something,
anything, to feel the red-hot surge
of ambition and love's pulsing

I'd repeat the "to" where you have inserted "or." Anyway, that would give this a more relentless drive, if that's what you want..

Thanks Bill - I agree with you, and have made the change. Thanks!

life is the stuff that dreams are made of; else why is there the hankering, that dreams may come true

There are two parallel narratives
to an artist-person's existence,
who, by will, embrace life's dance.

One lives in the objective, of world,
the other 'lives' in the subjective, of vision,
who, by will, turn darkness into light.

One may be bound by polio and wheelchair,
while the other transcends such limitations
to dream and express, on wings.

Unto canvas is brought vision, by color,
unto paper is brought vision, by word,
for us to partake in life's preciousness.
