Our society longs for such a time

A chapter in the book Muses of the Heart

A Breath of fresh air

by JLR

I so long for a breath of fresh air,
Do you?
Desire can be such a fleeting
However, muddled, befuddled our
thoughts become,
as we are consumed
by the constant onslaught of life's dramas
filled with people screaming
"You should of, you aught,"
projecting scenes upon
life's big screen,
that often takes our breath away.

I so desire to experience
something so very unique,
so special, positively refreshing
that it does take your breath away you?

Perhaps, you and I can begin
by sending a smile to a friend,
your neighbor, a colleague or
take a risk and let's virtual high-five
a total stranger.

Now wouldn't that provide
a "breath of fresh air?"
Come on, will you take the dare?
