In My Dream

I'm sitting here, tranquil, peaceful
next to this little sprout
and when my thoughts wander 
it grows and grows into the sky

into a massive, gigantic tree
a mile high with huge boughs
reaching thru the clouds

stretching across the world
to bless the earth

A sudden screech of tires
I'm awake
cars are driving by 
on broken pavement

people in crumpled clothes walk by
on the chipped cement sidewalk
concrete buildings block the sunlight

there's a withered tree behind me
the leaves are diseased and dying

i close my eyes and dream
