Flights Of Fancy

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Perhaps it is chimerical or a hazy trance
Perhaps it is hysterical or a crazy stance
Odds-on it is a scheme or a new expanse

Our imaginations build visions in the air
Our flights of fancy help us to repair

Perhaps it is satirical or a spoofy chance
Perhaps it is aspherical or a dizzy dance
Odds-on it is a theme or an odd advance

Our imaginations build humor in the wit
Our flights of fancy help us to forget

Perhaps it is creational or a tad pretense
Perhaps it is sensational or a big defense
Odds-on it is a dream or a love romance

Our imaginations build castles in the sky
Our flights of fancy help us do or die
