If I Had A Crystal Ball - Poem by Dee Daffodil

If I had a crystal ball,
I could wind a scarf
Through my locks
And dress flamboyantly

If I had a crystal ball,
I would be a hit at all parties
As long as I cast
Fortunes of optimistic nature

If I had a crystal ball,
I would know all...
See all...
But not tell all

If I had a crystal ball,
I would know
If when someone says
They are going to end it all,
Whether they really are...

If I had a crystal ball
Nothing would be left to fate
I could control my environ
And all those around me,
Because I would know...

But I don't have a crystal ball
And although I've had weird dreams,
I am not psychic
Not a mind reader
Not a fortune teller

Is that a good thing...
Or a bad thing?
You tell me...
Because I don't have a crystal ball

    Re-reading what you have written,
    makes me reconsider,
    again and again...

    Love, Fran xx

    Hmm.. I thought I had commented on this already. Needless to say, I really, really like this one. The last verse, where you turn it around, is wonderful. - chuck (Report) Reply

    I love the way you have composed this, as always you draw the reader in and hold them to the very last line. As for good or bad, I think dreams and intuition can sometimes guide you, merge the subconscious with the conscious and follow your destiny! Justine :) (Report) Reply

    Ah, but if we had these lovely powers and crystal balls, then we would have to become superhuman, and save the world! All the joys and sorrows of mankind would rest on our shoulders, and we would be responsible for not stopping things when they went wrong....I would rather stumble along from day to day, making my mistakes and learning (I hope!) from them.

    Ah Dee! the belle of the ball in crystal, well, we all have gifts/talents and sometimes we expect our-selves to be super human, with unsupassable insight,
    But the truth is that we are very much the same in many ways as many others
    We cry, we laugh, and we live the best we can
    You my dear have a caring heart for others and are a wonderful person to know
    this shines and others feel your light
    Love duncan XXX
