The Imagination

The Imagination knows no limits.
Sometimes it has a mind of its own.
It takes me to unseen places
and brings to life fantasies
that have never seen the light of day.

The Imagination is soft and wild.
It comes from a place deep inside
and longs to be expressed.
It is unconcerned about money, chores,
Earning a living or maintaining a home.

It is desire even unknown to me
Until it leaps out onto the page.
My hands moving swiftly
Making marks on the pristine paper.

It is in my child’s mind
As she creates stories, conflict, and magic
Recreating a story or a movie
to her understanding.

The Imagination is not looking to adhere
to standards of what is good or acceptable.
There is no grade-point average to attain.

The Imagination thrives on space to express 
and room to grow.
To explore 
its edges unending
and terrain always an adventure
awaiting to be expressed.
