sevenling (fantasy)


if dust were diamonds,

asphalt was gold, and

trees’ leaves paper money,


we’d sneeze on greed

drive over wealth, con~

sider banks quite funny!


fantastical, our discontent would blow away with wind~


Linking to dVerse Poetics with Lillian on “fantasy” theme…

    Sevenlings are us, it seems. I am still hung up on the stately flexible Haibun though; so much creative wiggle room. Isn’t it ironic that if our dreams came true, & mundane reality set in, we might not have achieved happiness.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful ~ Our greed hopefully will disappear if all have the same gold and diamonds ~

    Your poem reminds me of the rhyme:
    If all the world were paper
    If all the seas were ink
    If all the trees
    Were bread and cheese
    What would we do to drink?
    Love it!
