About whatever makes you go... WOW!

Cover image: The Digital Artist on Pixabay.



My initial impulse is to shout it out,

let my voice echo it out.

I want to dance,

but too self-conscious, I run instead,

my feet thudding along the street

in a steady grounding beat.

My heart might be singing but my mind starts to pound

with all of the possible implications.

Each one demands to be examined;

I pull them free,

peer at them upside down and outside in

as I make a show of


over each and every one.

Yes or no?

Can or can’t?

Will or won’t.

It’s all a pretense,

just a show of going through the motions

for twenty minutes later I’m still grinning

and the excitement makes me tremble.

There are no questions to be answered,

not really,

for whoever said that dreams never come true

was either lying

or was seriously misled.

I mean...

I can’t...

just WOW!
