Flights of Fancy (100 Word Story #49)

A tall tower in the desert,

The sand red in its shadow,

Black night sky deep behind,

A moon in apex does ethereally glow.


A swallow flying overhead,

A black streak against the sky,

Endless blue depths of azure horizon,

While sun beats mercilessly on high.


A salamanders’ hiss as lava pours forth,

Delving crevice and crater for sweet home,

Crackling heat slides slowly to place,

Devouring all before it with barely a groan.


Flights of fancy wherever they glide,

Over the world in glorious picture show,

Sparkling thoughts that plummet on down,

New places discover a respite from woe.
