Daily Poem 9: Woolgathering

Why’s woolgathering less respected than the other arts?

To have the skill to spin from idleness unicorns, globes,

Grey whales, and vampires deserves (and has received) the praise

Of generations (though of mostly day dreaming children).

We learn about ourselves through what we wish we were and can be…

If only in dreams.

And dinosaurs.

wool·gath·er·ing

[wool-gath-er-ing]

–noun
1. indulgence in idle fancies and in daydreaming; absentmindedness: His woolgathering was a handicap in school.
2. gathering of the tufts of wool shed by sheep and caught on bushes.
