Can You Imagine...

I have the most vivid imagination....
I know you are rolling your eyes, saying, 'Of course you do, you're a writer and I read some of your stuff,
and saying your imagination is vivid is some understatement..." Giggling...
True, but that is not what I mean...
What I am talking about is I have always been able to 'Imagine the Possibilities'...
Had I not, not one of those stories would have seen the light of day,
Because before we can put our creative imaginations to work,
We must imagine we can...
This morning as I was coming across the bridge, the stars and lights were twinkling,
The St. Johns River was lapping, lazily below me and I thought about the people I am closest to...
Those I abundantly value....
My do or die peeps,
And there was one resounding similiarity...
They were all people who imagined the possibilities and either acted, are acting, or will act upon them...
Because imagining something is just day-dreaming, if those possibilities are not actualized...
One way to get me to become Black History in your life,
Is to not imagine anything beyond your existence,
ORRRRRRRRRRRRR, and this is a big or...
Try to discourage me from excercising my imagined possibilities...
A Sistah will get ghost on you, quick...
Because those who don't imagine, dream...and execute,
Scare me...
They don't want to do anything, and by default will stand in your way,
UH, UH...so sorry...gotta go...
Since starting to write, I have had a few relationships get real, ummm. Quiet...shhhh
Because once they started to question, why I wanted or needed to do something else,
Mother had to pack up her imagination, and glide away...
Because I know for sure...
How cool it is...
Imaging Love...
Imagine Fun...
Imagine Being...
Imagine Doing...
Imagine Having...
Then seeing it all Become Real,
Now can't we all Imagine That!

Smooches,
Angelia

Great post, sis. I think people tend to short change the power of imagining. But it is truly a powerful thing. In fact, your post from yesterday and today go together very well. Because if one truly wants to make change happen imagination is crucial. In order to effect change you first have to imagine you can and then use that imagination to make it happen. Keep schooling us, sis! :-)

Yes... imagining is what it's all about... If I didn't have that, don't know where or what I'd be...
