I have a dream

I have a dream

An unaffordable dream

Which doesn't need

To build a home,

One that doesn't require me fame

Yet I can't afford.

I can't afford a life

Under the sky

Astray like a homeless nomad

Climbing mountains after mountains

Embracing nature

While listening to the flow of water,

I have a dream to wake up to the blue sky

Over the green rug of grass,

Burning woods to make

Green tea from the leaves

Picked from garden nature

And write about

Thunderstorms, lightening and rain

The beauty of wilderness

I have a dream to roam

with a pen and a diary and myself

Overcrowded with abundance of nature

To talk to stars

Converse with solitude

While smoking herbs

And open the gate

To the love of existence

Every other day,

Very new places,

Ah! Why am I

But, so poor To afford a life

which Needs no money.
