UU Lent – Day 4 – Dreams

The dictionary defines dream as both
a) a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep and b) a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal.



What happens to a dream deferred?
      Does it dry up
      like a raisin in the sun?
      Or fester like a sore—
      And then run?
      Does it stink like rotten meat?
      Or crust and sugar over—
      like a syrupy sweet?
      Maybe it just sags
      like a heavy load.
      Or does it explode?
I chose this song because some of our dreams are wrapped up in the words of this song.
What are your dreams?
