Visualization: One Year Future Perfect Dream

Back in March of 2014 I was part of a women's support group entitled "Single and Searching".  The focus of the group was dating, and although I wasn't interested in dating when I went in, I joined because I wanted some clarity on whether I should be dating or not.  I suppose it was an attempt to absolve guilt.  

Anyway, one of our assignments was to write our vision of a happy relationship.  I happened across the journal tonight in which I wrote on it, so I thought it would be fun to share it here.  Super shocking, I know, but I wrote it in poem form.

The quiet
Is the quiet of a busy house
Full of children
And laughter
And love

The quiet 
That is beautiful
In its rarity
And so fleeting
It's impossible
To miss

The smells
Of childhood
And wooden blocks
Of adolescent boys
Of a fragrant 
Young flower of a female
Always eager to please
Just like her mother

The feel 
Of energy
The air itself
Moves faster
With the energy of youth
With the energy of new love

The view
An American masterpiece
A melting pot
Of features
Faces so familiar
And also strange

The taste
Of home cooked meals
Each a labor of love
Of children's boo-boos
Brought to your lips for those kisses
Which instantly make them all better
Of my new love's kiss
Who made my life all better
