"The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter—'tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning." ~ Mark Twain


Sometimes I step outside myself

And see the world anew

Reality means little

With the things my mind can do

 

Simple things extraordinary

Preciously cherished in hand

The quotidian no longer

Unappreciated and bland

 

And sometimes I imagine

Realms with strange, strange hues

Neon nights and pastel people

Filled with ocean blue

 

A reverie is covetted

They sneak in throughout the day

Fickle focus flies free

I'm transdimensional, what can I say?

 

And sometimes I indulge

In a book or two

But nothing can compare

To the things my mind can do
