We Dream of Conversation

We dream of a great conversation

in which every person’s hearing is finely tuned

where every voice is clear and unhindered

by the stories of our past

those myths we’ve created along the way that have kept us quiet

until now

We dream of a great conversation

one that melts hearts

and forges foundations

one that brings together all the elements in one breath

for a dance with no defined steps

We dream of a great conversation

one where eyes are locked

where the energy is so strong

it is impossible to pull away

like a windmill creating power as it spins

We dream of a great conversation

where all voices are active and engaged

where discoveries are made

of shared values

where our blood all runs as one

and our hearts beat as one

We dream of a conversation

so delicious that every bite is savoured like an exotic chocolate

We dream of a conversation

so rich that if it were currency we would be billionaires

We dream of a conversation

as fresh as a spring rain that brings up the new growth

after a long winter

We dream of a great conversation

that generates more questions than answers

that grows and evolves like a painting on a canvas

never complete

never ending

always alive.
