“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” – Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)
“Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else’s dreams?” ― Tim Burton
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past. – Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson to John Adams August 1816
The trees have kept some lingering sun in their branches,
Veiled like a woman, evoking another time,
The twilight passes, weeping. My fingers climb,
Trembling, provocative, the line of your haunches.
My ingenious fingers wait when they have found
The petal flesh beneath the robe they part.
How curious, complex, the touch, this subtle art–
As the dream of fragrance, the miracle of sound.
I follow slowly the graceful contours of your hips,
The curves of your shoulders, your neck, your unappeased breasts.
In your white voluptuousness my desire rests,
Swooning, refusing itself the kisses of your lips.
