Someone Somewhere Sits Dreaming

Between Earth and Sky

Between Earth and Sky, Margaret Mair, original art

Someone somewhere
Sits dreaming
Between rocky earth
And boundless sky.
Someone somewhere
Has more,
Someone somewhere
Has less;
Someone somewhere
Dreams of having
What someone else
Somewhere else
Has,
Their life so easy,
Their sleep so peaceful,
Their families so close,
Their tables full
And overflowing
With food
And love
And joy
And dreams.
Someone somewhere
Gives thanks,
Someone somewhere
Gives love,
Someone somewhere
Gives joy,
Someone somewhere
Gives hope.
Someone somewhere
Sits dreaming
Of a whole world
Giving
And grateful.

  1. Someone somewhere took too long getting here to read your poem…
    that would be me! Cause someone somewhere (me again) was missing this wordy treat. 😉 Your writing always leads me to contemplation.

    • Well, Ellen someone-somewhere, I’m glad you did make it here. And that you find yourself contemplative after enjoying this wordy treat. 😊
