Flight Of Fancy

FLIGHT OF FANCY

I met you in the dappled Springtime
Radiant with blossom and birdsong
Ah yes – But time flies like the wind

We courted through dancing Summer
A passion that fair spanned the skies
Ah yes – But time flies like the wind

Ripening Autumn brought composure
And a deep resounding companionship
Ah yes – But time flies like the wind

And what shall I say of bleak Winter?
Chill reminder that all things must pass
Remember – Time flies like the wind

Remember – While hope springs eternal
Still our dreams will remain mañanas
And fruit flies … They like bananas

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  3. Ben Naga is such a wonderful poet. This poem makes my heart sing. There is sadness in it, but also a sense of continuancy of attachment and love. Too often poetry is built out of negative emotions. When a poem manages to somehow transcend that I think we should all cheer.

    • It feels good to have set your heart singing, Tom. I suppose the overall message here is that we are not around for long (like fruit flies) and so it is good to enjoy each passing moment rather than always seeking for something that might or might not one day arrive. Pass me a banana, please. 😀
