Dreams can come true.

THE  ROOM   BENEATH   THE   RAFTERS.

 

 

There, Summer dawns, in sleep I stirred,

And wove into my fair dreams woof

The chattering of a martin bird,

Or raindrops pattering on the roof

Or half awake and half in fear,

 I saw the spider spinning near

His pretty castle where the fly

Should come to ruin by-and-by.

 

And there I fashioned from my brain

Youths shining structures in the air,

I did not wholly build in vain,

For some were lasting, firm and fair.

And I am one who lives to say

My life has held more gold than grey,

And that the splendour of the real

Surpassed my early dreams ideal.

 

But still I love to wander back

To that old time and that old place;

To tread my way o’er memory’s track

And catch the early morning grace,

In that quaint room beneath the rafter

That echoed to my childish laughter;

To dream again the dreams that grew

More beautiful as they came true.

 

E. W. Wilcox.

This old picture was one of my childhood dreams,
to stand on some hill or field somewhere
with a falcon on my fist.
To watch her fly free and then return to me.

You see dreams can come true but you must make them come true.

Nothing happens by itself we must make it happen.

Make one of “your” dreams come true this week.

It can be done.

  1. Hey Sir Kenny 2dogs,
    This is filled with the wonderful dream of a childhood that you fulfilled…how inspiring. The poem is a good one, too! Lucky you are to have done that. I love birds even seagulls…I shall go fly now.
    Warm feathered hugs…

  6. Hi Kenny!
     
    Wonderful pic! I’ve wanted to do that for years and recently had the opportunity to do either that or go with hubby to the Land Rover World weekend at Hereford. Well I know he really wanted to go and because he is so good to me and I love him very much, we went to Hereford. However, he has promised me that we will go to a falconry park very soon, and you know what? I believe him totally, because up to now, he has made all my dreams come true, mainly by being a wonderful partner, but the one held since I was a small child – swimming with dolphins – was fulfilled in 2000 when we went on holiday to Florida. So you are absolutely correct Kenny, dreams can come true, but you do have to put some effort in, and most importantly, you have to believe they will!
     
    A long and healthy life to you my lovely friend
     
    Blessed be

  8. Love the pictures on the sea.  Seagulls are like rats with wings – they inundate you at the Jersey shore to the point that you can’t eat outside at all.

  10. What a beautiful poem! Happy to see you made one of your dreams come true, my dear friend!
    I am no longer on the other site, either. Both me and my other friend went off at the same time, right after you, LOL.  Summer is approaching I hope you get out more in Nature as you and I are quite similar in this aspect. Take care, XX

    I, however, don’t want the dream I just had to come true!  You know what I mean.  And yes, he broke up with me via an email, so insensitive his is mode of operation.
     
    Hmmm, now what dream can I fulfill?

HI KENNY!  I FEEL FOR YOU WITH THE LOSS OF YOUR BROTHER.  I HOPE YOU’LL BE ABLE TO WORK THROUGH YOUR PAIN.  I DID SOME REVISIONS TO MY ENTRY THIS AM.  I LIKE YOUR WORDS ABOUT MAKING YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.  IN SPITE OF WHAT I AM GOINTG THROUGH RIGHT NOW…I BARELY HAVE REGRETS ABOUT MY CHOICES IN LIFE.  BECAUSE I AM A RIGHT BRAINED ARTIST, MY CHOICES ARE NOT THE NORM.  I AM HAPPY AND PLAN TO FOCUS MY DIRECTION TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.

  16. Hiya Kenny,
    firstly the poem was so apt for how i feel this fine day.
    Not long back from the park and just sitting here having a cuppa before i make a start on the chores of today. I was sitting beneath a huge tree watching my Xena sniff and run around and every now and again she would turn back and look at me with that slobberly toungue having out the side….lol  First thing that came to my mind was a dream i have always had about being this close to a Wolf and be able to look into her eyes. Boy what a dream come true that would be for me.
    Then you what, my dream did come true today, when i looked at Xena once again i seen the Wolf inside her and realized i have my very own wolf with me all the time.
    So Kenny my dear friend, my dream came true this morning…lol
     
    Have to add, just look at the delight in your eyes and on your face, sure made me smile :O)
    You have yourself a wonderful day and give that handsome big Cherno a big gear hug from me, that’s my wee hug to you. Take Care……Diane xx
