In order to act, you must be somewhat insane. A reasonably sensible man is satisfied with thinking -- George Clemenceau

Working on a dream

I am working on a dream:
it is sensible,
not ostensible.

I am working on a dream:
which makes sense
to make compensable.

I am working on a dream:
it is significant,
not dispensable.

I am working on a dream:
it is perceptible,
but hard to reach.

I am working on a dream.
I am sensible:
satisfied with thinking.

I am working on dream:
which I have to wake up from
in order to be insane enough
to make it come true.

Working on a dream by Bruce Springsteen

Thanks to Weekend Wordsmith for triggering this post with their Sensible prompt. And thanks to The Boss for helping us dream.

@ Jay: Yup, Bruce is the best.In 'The River' he sings a line that has always struck me 'Is a dream a lie if if don't come true, or is it something worse'. I think that if we try hard to make our dreams come true, they are definitely not failures or lies if they don't come true.

Awesome! This is what I call: evoke, invoke and provoke! Nice work!

And now, I'm off to meander here some more!

@ Henie: I am glad to have triggered something and made you want to wander some more.
