Wishes & Dreams: An Artists Collaborative of the Unknown
recording artist, Wishing on a Star, Rose Marie, United Kingdom
visual artist, Visions in My Dreams Collection, Faati, Netherlands
written-word artist, Following Dreams, Russell Rosander, Mexico
by Russell Rosander
We were meant to dream
its in our nature
To hope, to wonder if,
Our dreams give our lives meaning,
our reason to be,
there is a price,
they are not given for free.
they require us
to risk all,
into the abyss of the unknown
to risk failure
Woe to those
who lack the courage,
so many empty lives we see.
would we ourselves
be here now
if none had dared to cross the sea?
Would we exist
to dream at all,
if none had gone before,
if none had died,
if none had tried,
if none had tried again?
And so we ask,
the giver of our dreams,
the creating of us all,
to help us in our pursuit,
to give us what we need,
to protect us,
and give us the wisdom and courage
through our inevitable failures,
to never accept defeat,
to follow the dreams,
the will, the dreams
of our maker
through and of ourselves,
they might take us.
a collision of The Arts
a feast for the Imagination
Literature at an altitude
simply unheard of

Reblogged this on Sunflowers for Moira and commented:
The entire post is absolutely lovely. The song could almost be called “divine” with the light soprano soaring like she does. Thank you for posting this.
