“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” -Albert Einstein


My world is full of fantastical things
That only I can see.
In tree’s leaves I see the face of an owl.
In the grass of pasture I see an eye staring back at me
And wait for it to blink.
In the babbling brook I see leaping sun sprites
Dancing upon the waters’ surface.
In the flowers I see a sitting elf seated on the
Petal Stool.
In the toadstools of the forest
I see the fairies playing their drums to the beat of their hearts.
In the beams of sunlight that have filtered through the trees
I see a sleeping Phoenix with feathers of flame.


The author's comments:
This was inspired from actually seeing things in the designs of the branches of the trees out the window of my house and in the grass of my front yard. I've seen people and animals alike in these things but they always shift.

Checked it out, very good. Reminds me of some of the stuff I read in my Lit class with a little bit of Poe's tastes mixed in.
