In 55 Words-Imagination Has Wings




Remains hidden,
Until dug out all of a sudden,
Like an engine,
It needs fuel to run.
Until then, more than one can imagine,
It sparks fun.
It cannot be measured by length,
it's something in depth.
It could be giant and gentle,
It's tricky to handle.
Imagination has wings,
Let it evoke magical things.

Nice 55, 'wings' prompt, and whatever else.

I've gotta start combining posts like this, covering Friday 55, poetry prompts and everything - it would be much easier than writing individual pieces for everything!

What would we do without imagination? It can be creative and protective and as you aptly put it it can be so much fun. Enjoyed the visit and glad you looked in at me too!

I like the lines
"Until dug out all of a sudden,
Like an engine,
It needs fuel to run."

How true, If we don't use it we lose it. As the saying goes.

Timoteo said...

An apt description, as it is just like that. Wait...did I just read a poem about imagination...or was it just my imagination?

Wonderful piece Jingle!

The Reason You Come said...

A writer's imagination definitely has wings; they take her to places that are far beyond her world. Your imagination definitely has wings! I'm impressed that you were able to adhere to the 55-word rule, and did so wonderfully!

dan roberson said...

Ji, your imagination flies everywhere. It seems to be constantly in motion, like a hummingbird, from poem to poem. Thanks.
