it started with a vision

For today’s prompt, write a vision poem. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream. I’m sure most poets have a vision of how to make the world a better place. Write that poem today. Can be serious or not so much.

it started with a vision

what would i do to make the world a better place

lennon told me to imagine

king dreamt

id rather BE

be the one Love looks to for affirmation

Peace rests upon

plant pansies along all the paths that lead to nowhere but despair

pull the Stars out of thin air to make the negative spaces between tree branches beam

 

BE

someone’s reason to believe again

BE

the shudder before the sigh

the answer to his question of why

fly among the angels to eavesdrop on their magic

BE

enchanted philosophy

BE

more than a source of light, but

BE

a basis for illumination

an example, a foundation

to mold the world into a better place

than King could ever dream

or Lennon could imagine
