It’s the Dream

It’s the dream we carry
that something wondrous will happen,
that it must happen –
time will open
hearts will open
doors will open
mountains will open
springs will gush forth from the ground–
that the dream itself will open,
that one morning we’ll drift
into a harbor we didn’t know was there.
