A Field of Dreams--By Scott Thomas Outlar--United States

A Field of Dreams (Forgotten/Recalled)

Blue sky afternoon bliss
so pure and perfect
I could close my eyes
and become effervescent
soaking into the atmosphere
as the flesh breaks down
to a state of scattered atoms
and proves the theory
that All is One

Green grass fields of glory
so sharp and inviting
I could close my eyes
and remember a time
as a child when I played
a game that brought such joy
in every moment of perfection
that served as an introduction
to the reflection of today

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Maurice. Cheers!

  2. there's a satisfaction in living in past memories, especially when they are good!

    1. Learn from the past, live in the present, and look toward the future. That was a motto I wrote on my notebooks back in college. Ha! It just popped into my mind. Cheers, Sheikha!

  3. Beautiful write. Such memories from childhood. Shape the adult we become. Great Imagery.

  4. Beautiful imagery, when we rediscover the innocense and hope of childhood we can get our joy back and have a new outlook on the world. Wonderful words!
