“It´s no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense”.

THE SECOND FLIGHT OF ICARUS

 

But did you know that Icarus did not die? Once having seen the world from the sky, there was nothing that could stop him. He needed to do it again. Guided by his mind, and not his heart, and having learned from his mistakes, he would fly again. He would return to see the sea from above, to feel again the caress of the clouds upon his face. He would contemplate the mountains and the woods as only can the birds.

 

And he would land like them, full of pride and serenity, feeling great as a king. Great as the king of Creation.

 

 

And did you know what he saw…

            Traveling to the other side of the mind

            On board the ship of the imagination

            Breaking the chains of senses

            Unraveling the rigid cloth of memory

 

            Beyond the reach of inflexible reason

            While obstinate reality sleeps

            The dreams slowly take their form

 

            Dreams fluid

            Volatile

            Free

 

            Rising from the dark bottom of memory

            Riding over the purple whirlwind

            Wrapping time in a blanket of the forgotten.

            The glow of twilight warms your cheeks

            And the breeze caresses your serene face

            Sweetly quieting the silence

            The silence that is held by everything, and that holds everything quiet

 

            You meditate, oh keeper of hours

            On your lonely life

            Your mind pauses, briefly flickers

            And your spirit is bathed in peace

 

            You look toward the infinite ungraspable horizon

            No one near, no one far;

            No one is looking, no one you see

            Soul skirting and alone, absolute calm; eternal

 

            Below simmers the noisy world

            Whirlwind of desires and passions,

            The bustling turbulent rush

 

            Far below; far away.
