You toss your head on the threshold of an incandescent dream, daring me to climb your sleek, muscled back. Black wings unfurl, fanning moon dust across an iridescent sky. Hooves strike; nebulas ignite. Sky blue mane in hand, I hurtle across the face of unfolding Mystery. My heart explodes with wonder. I am consumed by the fires of thought-- phoenix ashes line a bed that cradles me. I confront all that may yet be with Pegasus on loan from Muses that whisper fancifully into my sleep.
