As a child
I built castles
on the sea shores...
the waves took them away
I would cry

Then the sky said:
don't dirty your hands
just sit looking at me
the clouds with build you
castles...
don't dirty your hands or cry
-- they keep building!

Now:

"I build castles high in sky
guarding man in game and pain"

that last quote came as lines of a poem....to end as:

"I just do now what I know
dream and dream
and dream and dream"

THis was beautiful Lorraine...There's a child around who always brings the magic...some older women like us too :)

love,
dev

Lorraine said...

How beautiful, so lovely, so in tune with mine, you're right dear Dev, you don't need to have a blog...you're perfect right here ;)

Devika said...

haha! Actually, my blog is now used mostly to vent out the "not so beautiful" :)

But thank you Lorraine...for bringing in beauty so I can add to it :)

Lorraine said...

My pleasure Dev, and when you open your comments again, I'll be there..but not before, I have to vent in response, I can't hold my passion back for long

Devika said...

Opening the comments....actually i begin to feel very comfortable this way. It is peaceful for me...from you I could take though,

there were many out of the blue commentators...and i am sure they will be back...No time to waste on such wastes :)

Devika said...

well, I may be sounding a little too harsh in the second stanza...But I was fed up Lorraine; thats why I closed it!

Though at the cost of many discerning readers and friends (But friends remain friends I guess)...My blogging experience was one of a kind...Looking back its fun, only because I stopped the comments,

I am a very sensitive kind...dangerously so :)

Lorraine said...

Well Dev, you're not going to like this, but your 'dangerous sensitivity' sounds more to me little EGO....lol wow I can almost see the smoke...;)

Devika said...

I have my EGO, Lorraine....No doubt about it; only when I face Nature and God, do I keep it down :)

dev

Devika said...

aaah! well, if we are working for a collective humanity too I might keep it down....But not to any individual...Not to my father, not to my husband -- they never wanted that from me, is another matter :)

Now that becomes about self-respect --

Devika said...

Now that becomes "more" about self-respect! :)

Lorraine said...

Devika said...

Brings back childhood memories of playing in the sand. I still sometimes like to feel the sand between my fingers and toes. Feels like childhood again.

namaki said...

abracadabra !!!!! this is excellent Lorraine !

Lorraine said...

"A GAteway to imagination" Brian to I even have to say how fabulous that is, thanks always

We do have to remember that child, don't we, thanks Gillena for this beautiful thought

I agree Anne, I always walk barefoot in the sand, and sometimes I grab a handful of warm sand and let it fall on leg lol

Oh la, c'est gentil, Dominique, merci beaucoup!

TALON said...

You captured a "moment", Lorraine. What fun to play on the beach and create entire worlds.

Marcel Peltier said...

Nice.

"châteaux en Espagne", mais pas pour l'enfant dont l'imagination fertile le porte loin, très loin dans la poésie.

Lorraine said...

Thanks Talon, I almost remember lol :)

C'est vrai Marcel, malgre moi je me suis infiltree dans cette fantaisie :)

Standley said...

J'en ai construit des châteaux Lorraine, et heureusement ils n'étaient pas tous en Espagne!
