When One is More than Three

for Fred Longworth

The pure energy of choice, the exercise
Of wisdom and will between the extremes
Of hatred and love, apathy or action, war

Or art, the painful year, a joyful moment,
Only mind dreaming our future into being:
All that is made by man, woman or child

Every toy, house, bridge, bullet or bomb
Was once an idea given birth in the mind.
It may look like we take one step forward

Three back, but a forward step is always
The greater distance in dreamtime, mind is
Forever dreaming forward into the future.
