Deeds of Daring Don't

Inside I'm a dreamer, it's true
But the dreams that I dream, I don't do
Lost caverns are deep
High mountains are steep
Those conquests I've left up to you*


*The impracticality of the project is always the essence of my argument.

















ABC Wednesday Prompt was D and
Our Three Word Wednesday Prompt was:

Dare; verb: Have the courage to do something or defy or challenge (someone) to do something.

Essence; noun: The intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract, which determines its character.

Practical; adjective: Of or concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas.

  4. Hum maybe Jae is right... derring do is best undertaken in a day dream. The mountains I climb are small and well traveled. The caves I spelunk are guided and well-lit.

    Very nicely said, Lilibeth.

  7. I think you are right. It is better to pick their pieces up and mend them than the other way round.
