In The Shadow Of The Ghost Of Don Quixote   1 comment

I have always had a Don Quixote complex in that I love windmills, and I’m a dreamer; however, it is not the impossible. Somewhere in a big box of Kodak carousel trays containing many slides of windmills taken long ago (1968) during my first visit to southeast Arizona. — kenne

There stands 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 ideal vision –

the practical but mundane 

image of a windmill,

or that of the romantic dreamer 

of the impossible dream –

in the end, we all see only 

what we wish to see?
