I Dream a World


Denise Krebs inspired me to write a Langston Hughes “I Dream a World” poem today. 
I was visiting my dad over the weekend for Father’s Day, feeling blessed to have a father I love and cherish – and then, driving home I saw an umbrella being held by someone standing by a grave in a cemetery this morning in the pouring rain at 8:47 a.m. That image inspired my poem today. 

i dream a world
of no goodbyes
of love and kindness
in our eyes

i dream a world
of no regret
of no grief tunnels
to forget

i dream a world
of family peace
where arms, outreached,
make quarrels cease
