The Genie Is You




To feel time
Is to hear the
Genie addressed
In future memory--
The wish and
The wish recalled.
The wish is always
To be the genie
Who makes dreams
Come true --and
That is you.

  2. Sweet and whimsical. Your artwork is so realistic, it appears I can pick up the paintbrush through my screen.
    Be well, Geo.

    1. Thanks, Robyn! Most of my doodles are of things I find on my table. I have always been fond of my spoon too.

    1. O_Jenny, most kind. Doodling is an old habit without which I would not recognize myself.

  4. How the genie
    Makes dreams come true
    No one knows
    Doesn't really matter who is who
    Cause no one has a clue

    Did you know there are ancient Indian texts called the Puranas, which write history in the future tense? This must have given them a kind of authenticity and authority in that time.

    In other news, you inspired me to try my hand at a bit of poetry after 15-16 years, Geo. Now I am afraid I might end up doodling as well!

    1. Thanks for alerting me to the Puranas! KK, from following your blog and appreciating your comments here, I'm confident you'll make a fine poet. Doodling is a side-effect --you'll get used to it. All best wishes to you.
