A Journey Over the Horizon

Written by: Leonora Galinta

Does your imagination run deeper than the ocean floor? In ecstatic feeling, pirouetting into the sublime No ultraviolet rays, fly freely through the core On a herculean task, hands on their creative chime It governs everything, control it if you can In ecstatic feeling, pirouetting into the sublime. It encircles the world, gem endowed to every human A journey over the horizon, utilize it well It governs everything, control it if you can When a canvas is filled with your moods that dwell Stories glint, flamboyant colors on the air A journey over the horizon, utilize it well. Peripheral to all skills, synchronizes bodies in flair Runs deeper than the ocean floor or higher than those stars Stories glint, flamboyant colors on the air When does your imagination work in time? On a herculean task, hands on their creative chime A journey over the horizon, utilize it well When a canvas is filled with your moods that dwell Free fantasy For you and for me Is it utilized well?
Note: This poem is composed with the inspiration of one of my most favorite quotations: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
