Dream, Vision, Reverie!

A wide-eyed dream,
Is more like a vision,
A soothing reverie,
A fanciful musing,
Of the future imagining,
A picture now I can see.

Can you see what I see?
The future that I dream,
World of my imagining,
A heartening vision,
A wishful musing,
Let me stay in this reverie.

A vague idea formed in reverie,
It’s fruition I wish to see.
Not a baseless musing,
Not a worthless dream,
It’s a positive vision,
A united world in my imagining.

Peaceful and free existence in my imagining,
No conflicts over borders, in my reverie.
I meditate on this vision,
Hoping you too shall see,
Share my wide-eyed dream,
And join in this musing.

Once it is everyone’s musing,
Reconciliation I’m imagining,
Then it’ll be time for this dream,
To realize; rising from reverie,
All will wake and see,
Work to enliven this wonderful vision.

Takes conviction for a vision,
To not remain just a musing.
End of terorrism and violence I see,
Infinite love, peace and security I’m imagining,
I’m lost in this fantastic reverie,
Will turn true, one day, my wide-eyed dream!

Until that day, I live with this vision,
My Imagining will find voice; my musing,
Triggering thought, from reverie, you’ll see,
Will soon be a realized dream!

This is a SESTINA:

Is a highly structured poem consisting of 6 six-line stanzas concluding with a 3-line “envoi”, for a total of thirty-nine lines.Rather than simply rhyming, the actual line-ending words are repeated in successive stanzas in a designated rotating order. The prescribed pattern for using the 6 line-ending words is:

1st stanza 1 2 3 4 5 6

2nd stanza 6 1 5 2 4 3

3rd stanza 3 6 4 1 2 5

4th stanza 5 3 2 6 1 4

5th stanza 4 5 1 3 6 2

6th stanza 2 4 6 5 3 1

envoi 2--5 4--3 6--1

The sestina dates back to the Middle Ages when it was adopted by the Italian poets of the Renaissance (Dante and Petrarch), and is often used by contemporary poets.
This has been written for
Jingle Poetry
Poetry Potluck: Deams, Visions & Reveries

And also for the OSI Prompt # 145: Free(dom)
