What lovelier way to unwind can be found
than to visit a realm where ideas abound?
As the mind wanders free to unfetter the heart,
serendipity sweeps in; and worlds far apart
are conjoined in the rush of imagined and real,
rearranging the way that we see, think, and feel.
On the wings of such liberty, worries take flight.
Possibilities bloom in a field of delight.
Any spirit can soar when the very sky sings
of creation and all the good gifts that it brings.
Is it true? And if so, where on earth does one look?
Ah, that’s easy, my friend. Simply open a book.
