castle in the clouds

The castle in the clouds
tantalus temptation
to journey beyond
on the steady steed
of mental whim.

The sun will steal it
with its siege of light,
plundering with its burn,
and relentless expedition.

But, for now, I’ll travel its path,
on imagination quest,
to distant crenellations -
in the diaphanous
dappling shadow
of nebulous walls.

I can hear laughter within,
naive ignorance
disguising imminent destruction
and the inevitability of peril.
This is daydream,
this is escape,
this is a chain of thought
lowering its drawbridge
in welcome.
