The Architect of My Dreams


THE ARCHITECT
by ERIK JOHANSSON.


The architect of my dreams
built a small cabin
for me
and set it to perfection
at the edge of the western sea.

But he gave me no roadmap
and threw away the key.

It took me forty years
to find its path and door
and, when I had to go away,
it took me twenty more

to climb, once more, the mountain
that led me to its shore.
And here I will stay, now,
forever, evermore.


a little ditty for Shay's Sunday Muse. #78 already. How time flies!

    Btw, I am having the same issues with those two formats taking my comments.

I am currently experiencing problems with my comments vanishing into the ether, or going to your Spam folders- even sites I have visited for years. The problem is with wordpress sites and those with Akismet security. I try various methods of giving my sign in info until something works. I want you to know I AM visiting everyone and trying my hardest to comment. Smiles.
