flight of fantasy

Finn at Houghton Fair May 2015

‘Such things as dreams are made of….’
the flight of fancy,
imagined universes,
caped heroes.

Take off…..
and in this moment
boundaries fall away
untethered by authenticity
or fears of falling.
All things are possible
in this daydream-land
where adults dare not play.

The horizon is different,
cotton clouded,
above contradiction,
this castle in the air
repelling boarders
and attempts to understand.

This is a flight of unfathomed fantasy,
where the smoke and mirrors
of reality,
cannot penetrate
or paint handicaps
on little folk.
