Castles in the Air

The image shows shows a castle in the clouds. A surreal image created by the clouds that surround it.

If I were able
I’d build a castle
just for you

A pearl-white, perfect vision
fashioned from daydreams
forged in the flames
of burning desire

If I were able
I’d offer my castle
only to you

A shining cerulean citadel
sculpted from fantasies
shaped by illusions
of anxious lust

If I were able
I’d trade my castle
to be with you

A glowing golden fortress
moulded from memories
shored up by recollections
of passions past

If I were able
I’d secure you
in my heart

And never let you go.

  1. This is beyond beautiful for all my vocabulary can expand. Exquisite! You created such a stunning imagery and described in heartfelt eloquence the castle you built in the imagination, but would still trade it for the time and presence of one you love. How wonderful. A truly glorious creation!

  2. Riding on the echo waves from the previous impressions, I’d add also the perspective of loved ones being separated due to covid; what would we give for a chance to be by their side…
    Bravo Chris!
