In The Shadow Of The Ghost Of Don Quixote   1 comment

Cooks Camp Trail“In The Shadow Of The Ghost Of Don Quixote” — Image by kenne

There stand the remains of a hopeless battle

watched over by the ghost of Don Quixote.

Although the ghost whispers are never heard, and

try as I may to distinguish between fantasy and reality,

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

giving this giant machine 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.
