MMMmmm My Daydreams

I close my eyes
       And daydream.

I am walking slowly
     Listening to the breeze
     Gently moving the pine needles.

I hear the creaking
     Of the tree limbs
     As they wave back and forth.

I hear the squirrel
     Scolding me
     For disturbing him.

I feel the peacefulness
     Of the forest
     And melt into the tranquility
     Of the moment.

Daydreaming! Oh-h-h, Ah-h-h the pleasure of daydreaming!
I can go anywhere at anytime.  I can be within the loving
arms of the forest or my lover.  I can travel any distance
within a wink of time.  I visit places and moments in my past
that has been retained in this scramble of memory I have.
It is a jumble of memories filled with wonders and the  mundane.
It surprises me what is trapped within and randomly retrieved
at random moments.
