Old Blue - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Old Blue knew he was smarter than anyone else.
Every day he'd go lie down in his favorite spot beneath
the trees and look out over the fields.
For hours he'd daydream about things he was going to do in life.
As the years passed quickly by, Old Blue remained in his mind's
eye, always thinking of what he would someday accomplish.
Last Tuesday, Old Blue died in his favorite spot beneath the
trees, never having done any of the things he'd daydreamed of
doing one day.
His mind surpassed his reality.

    The phrase mind's eye refers to the human ability for visualization, i.e., for the experiencing of visual mental imagery; in other words, one's ability to see things with the mind.....as copied from a google article.

    i think i know what the poem lines:
    As the years passed quickly by, Old Blue remained in his mind's
    eye, always thinking of what he would someday accomplish.
    mean but i don't think the wording is accurate, given the above definition.

    i wonder how many dogs (and cats, and birds, AND humans) do the same thing? ?

    i liked His mind surpassed his reality......thanks for sharing. :)
