Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of the possible. What does that mean? Write a poem that emphasizes the power of “if,” of the woulds and coulds and shoulds of the world.
It is natural to wish to soar and rise
I wonder if the wings I desire
will help me fly
or would they be too fragile
to carry the featherlight weight
of my gossamer dreams
dreams that want to roam
coast to coast
‘cos the venturesome heart
is exuberantly on the look out
for new horizons forever
to bring about the change it wants to see
never ready to give up or despair
twinkling stars a guiding constant.
