One - the Art of Dori Hartley

One – the Art of Dori Hartley

You say you’ve been with me all along, and now I know it’s true.

I saw you for the first time in a magazine, when I was four.

You were my imaginary friend

Though I wasn’t aware I had One.

I saw you today.

You answered me.

You sauntered down those steps and you smiled

Your hands in your pockets

Like you’d been there all along

But I suppose you have… haha


Now I know I shall see you everywhere

Acknowledging my accomplishments

Pushing me to face my fears

And you always by my side

And at night, when I ready myself for sleep

There will be you

Playing chopsticks

  1. I love it!!!!! I haven’t experienced a imaginary friend. The many characters from the books I read I guess could qualify as a type of imaginary playground. What a fabulous painting! Where can I see more?
