A Sky Full of Dreams

Big Enough

A day in the #sky/ leaping towards us/ A gust of #wind/ and the #dog becomes/ Another form to alert our/ #imagination/ A sky full of #dreams/ Big enough to cover the #World/ Everybody can have a go/ if they could only look up/ instead of down — Pat 10-7-97 from Sketch Journal circa 1997


All Day and Night Music


All day and night music,
A quiet, brilliant reed song
If it fades,
We fade.
— Rumi

Blank waiting rooms

Full of graceful pose

Hospital gowns gorgeous

Cheerful eyes

In energy post

A rose for

The taxman’s smile

A mile, I walk alone

Instant grace

Is unknown

FF @1979


Enjoyed talking with you. Good luck in all your endeavors.


Note to readers:  I used a pen name in my twenties — Frank Fairmont. I adopted the name of my 1979 Ford Fairmont. His name was Frank.  I signed my poetry using that pen name. Also, memo are my initials. The Original Journal will be published under the name memomuse.  I am working with a graphic designer, who is designing the logo. I can’t wait for the reveal.  Please stay tuned to blog and social media accounts as I will keep you posted.  This has been a twenty year dream to publish this journal and create a journal for you to write in and have your friends and random people to sign.

Donation to God poem by memomse

I wrote this. Yep, me, the creator of The Original Journal.

I have no idea what original journal it is in. I typed it up to be clever one day and the poem strip was in an envelope I recently found sorting through a clutter (hoarder) box.

Happy Monday. Please tell one person about this project (that friend of yours who carries around a notebook, journal, or diary around faithfully or that friend who always thinks of clever things to say, or that friend who collects trinkets or that friend who would rather have bamboo shoots stuck under their fingernails than pick up a pen and write their thoughts down — one does need juxtaposition). Just share (if you want).

Here is the Weekend Edition from The Original Journal Project in case you missed it.

Seriously, happy Monday. May the muse be with you. Or something to that effect.

Hope. Wish. Dream. Be.

Journal Your Journey.
