Castle In The Sky… - Poem by Betty Jo Hilger

I had a picture in my mind
Wisely crafted
I took my time
Purposely painting stunning hues
Striking in their pleasant views

My scene was tranquil and complete
Awed attention at my feet
And glowing eyes filled with devotion
Focused on my every motion

Framed in peace and void of fear
I built my dreams of later years
Upon foundations firm and grounded
Assured triumphant feats abounded

Pristine panoramic ‘scape
Sheltering me beneath its cape
A comforting yet false illusion
Erected based upon delusion

Picturesque and so serene
I wish it had not been a dream
My life is great
Don’t misconstrue
Yet still, I’m sad it wasn’t true
