To Dream


To Dream


To dream, I forget to dream

and life catches up with a brief reflection

of a stranger’s face

on a window pane at the corner store.

Sadness keeps no more

but hard to retrace

a diverging road lost without direction

while I simply live, and forget to dream.


“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
Lao Tzu

  1. Hector, this is wonderful. The first four lines just floored me, and took my thoughts miles away in a very powerful way. I believe I’m stuck on the idea of catching my own reflection in a window pane. 😉 Terrific poem, great quote. Have a good evening. ~ Mia xo
