Use ESCAPE as your inspiration this week.

    Delicious are Dreamers

    Hide your mind from topics too cruel for your delicate hearts,
    And discount ugliness for a safe escape to enchantment.
    For tender ‘dreamers’ make the most delicious dish of tyrants.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt- Enchanted

See the source image

If you lose your innocent wonder, or…
Lack songs that electrify your stomach and move your body,
Your heart doesn’t dance when your children and grandchildren arrive,
Or, ‘What ifs?’ never flood your mind.

If you lose your curiosity, or…
Have never felt close to The Creator, and witnessed him in Nature’s perfection,
Your tears rarely flow for joy, and beauty, and discovery,
Or, you can’t imagine that possibilities are endless.

Then enchanted things will not ‘believe in’ you, either.
