Untravelled Trips

I dream of building a ladder

Right up to the stars

And if I keep going

It might take me to Mars!


I dream of that tunnel

Which would take me right to the ocean floor

While I sit and watch the fish

Who could ask for more?


I dream of flying in a balloon

Up to the highest peak

The air up there is very sleek

I might not have to speak.


The luscious forest calls me

I‘ll take it in my stride

And if I find a panther

It might take me for a ride.


I’ll make a trip up on a camel

In that desert so hot

The heat’s not going to suit me

So I think I’d rather not.


My feet won’t actually leave the ground

But times like this, I have to dream

If I hadn’t the chance to escape

I‘d just have to scream…


  1. Imaginative poem, full of beautiful images and rhyming verses. You took a part of me in this lovely journey that would not exist if we did not have the capacity to dream.

    Thank you so much for the follow. I really appreciate this. However, there is a much better writer than me. I strongly recommend you and all your followers my friend Mario Savioni’s novel “Pickles and Tarts” (very short chapters, easy to read). It is a story where 54-year-old Frank has been selected by 19-year-old Nicole through a dating site. Frank looks at Nicole’s photos on the site and is attracted to her beauty. Nicole tells him she has a boyfriend and is not interested in a romantic relationship. She adds: “It’s fun to talk to different people sometimes.” The only apparent thing Frank and Nicole seem to have in common is their interest to write stories. Perhaps they want to meet just to write one together? Now Frank has already started to imagine this story, a story-within-the-main-story. “Pickles and Tarts” is a lovely story of illusion-delusion, dream-reality, non-conformist with the Capitalist system, reflective on love, sex, drugs, abuse, loneliness and human relationships in today’s world. It is profound and highly intriguing. I recommend chapters 13:
