Poetry Friday: Now Dream YOUR Dream #poemsforMaryLee

I can't think of a better way to celebrate Poetry Friday than to offer my best wishes to Mary Lee Hahn upon her retirement. It is a gift in this life to be given the opportunity to live more than one dream. 

Now Dream YOUR Dream

For years
you have planted 
the dreams
others pursued,
carefully tending 
their fragile

fellow travelers
searching for
paths to be taken,
roads to travel,
yet to be revealed. 

steps large 
and small,
still unknown.

it is your turn
to chase words
and moments,
to savor quiet
and slow. 
to discover new roads
waiting for you. 

it is your turn
    to dream.

It's Poetry Friday!  Today's roundup is hosted by Christie Wyman at Wondering and Wandering. Stop by to enjoy some poetry and/or leave a link. 


  1. This is beautiful Cathy! I can't wait to see where her journey will take her next!

  2. For every day Mary Lee's given, I love "Now
    it is your turn", Cathy. It's like those old movie previews!

  3. Cathy, I love this simple post with all the white space--enough for lots of dreams! Mary's dreams. One of my favorite parts is that she has time now to: "to chase words / and moments," Beautiful!

  4. A beautiful send off, Cathy, and there's no one more deserving of having her dreams fulfilled.

  5. I love this so much. Thank you for honoring me with the gift of your beautiful words!
    Yes, yes it is time for my dreams. I feel confidently that all those young ones I launched will dream us a better world. I'm satisfied to take my place in the cheering section of the bleachers.
