With imagination, mere clouds
in the sky become water dragons,
dancing way up above us all.
With imagination, the sun
on the ocean with the waves
crashing on the shore
become water sprites dancing
on the surface of the sea.
With imagination, the hum
of the computer fan becomes
the angelic voices of a heavenly choir.
Without imagination, clouds are clouds,
the ocean waves crash on the sea shore,
and my computer fan has this annoying hum.
For imagination takes the ordinary
and transforms it into the extraordinary.
