Of Dragons and Imaginings

Of dragons and imaginings,
my thoughts will sometimes stray
back to a time when wonderment,
seemed to fill each day.
When time was truly abstract,
and gazing at the sky
showed me there was an endlessness,
so much beyond my eye
that lay unseen, except in dreams
or inside children's heads,
where fairy tales were somehow real,
and the brilliant golds and reds
that filled the skies at sunset,
were dragons, playing games,
and I was flying with them,
soaring in the flames.
But I grew up, along the way
my flights of fancy lost,
Time became a thing to waste,
each hour held a cost.
Appointments made, appointments kept,
measured hours every day.
A race for each accomplishment,
and guilt along the way.
Tick-tock, tick-tock commands the clock,
a master I now see
that chained and trained to silence,
the dreamer that was me.
But the key that's held my freedom,
has been there in my hand
waiting oh so patiently
for me to take command
releasing all my dragons,
who will never ask me why,
I stopped believing in myself,
and gazing, at the sky
This I wrote shortly after the loss of my Grandfather... a dreamer, a muse, an inspiration. A truly remarkable human being that I was ever so lucky to have had the honor to know and grow with....
