In The Shadow Of The Ghost Of Don Quixote   1 comment

There stand the remains of a hopeless battle

watched over by the ghost of Don Quixote.

Although the ghost whispers are never heard,

try as I may to distinguish between fantasy and reality,

every windmill stands in the shadow of the ghost of Don Quixote

giving this tool of man a human spirit

leaving us to decide which is the more ideal vision –

the practical but mundane image of a windmill,

or that of the idealistic dreamer of the impossible dream –

in the end, we all see only what we wish to see?

  1. Ahh, but I beg to differ….Keene, we are fortunate to have visionairies show us wonders and truths we might never fathom even exist without those who tilt at windmills. I believe we need the ones that see aversaries to conquer among the whooshing whispers of the ghosts that lay veils of lies tween us and truth. Not all are immune to being shown. Thank goodness.
