    It is like: 'If we do not try, we never know.' So, let us poets be fool that we may be enlightened! I like this poem! (Report)Reply

    …but i think you are wrong. i bet non-fools sometimes tackle the impossible because they DO have a dream and/or because they do not know what IS possible. " Nothing ventured, nothing gained" i've heard before. and what used to be impossible is not always impossible now. ;)

    i say " NO" to both parts of the poem, but i kind of like it.

    i had to read this 2-3 times before i decided i did NOT NOT-like it.

    Google 'tells' me a fool is:

    : " a person who acts unwisely or imprudently; a silly person" i'll assume you mean the first definition.

    Fools dream the impossible they cannot achieve while poets actualise the impossible through dreams. Beautiful...10. (Report)Reply

    Both mam Sandra. We poets dream the most impossible and make it possible through our heart-made milieu that only us can dwell and there we become fools! A 10+++++ for this sublimest poem I've ever read.To my poem list. (Report)Reply
