Above all earth's creatures you were gifted with imagination to contemplate The Beyond.
Beyond your ordinary weekend lies a dreamland where molden magna melds into peaceful pristine pools.
Where galaxy's super stars defer to planetary moons, humbly bowing to the meeker's ascendent presence.
Where infinitesimal insects inherit shapeforms from distant domanering dinosaurs diabolic.
Where a kayak awaits on the horizon of consciousness.
Where a Lone Tree fades on the Island of subconscious.
