Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time
I told a tale
I did not hear
that hot wind wail,
setting sail
across a sea of obsession.

But here I sit
and hear the sound
of magic whirling
round and round
image, symbol,
word unbound
the engine of my travels.

Between the stars
and midnight sea
I sail to find
just what can be
teased into
words of fantasy
one keystroke at a time.

into tale -
the words, they own me
as I sail.
They push me into
What If's gale -
the telling has my soul.
