Magic mushroom, grown in an unknown Wonderland;
Pink fungus tossed into the night-sky sea; sprouts a tail,
Shape-shifting into a jellyfish before my very eyes…

This feels like an ode to the imagination…

Castleโ€™s reflection in the water pure,
Crystal-like surface pretends it’s a mirror,
The panorama sparks my sense of wonderโ€ฆ

If I turned the picturesque scene upside-down,
Donโ€™t even stop there, maybe flip the entire town,
And dove in, would I enter its reflective soul or drown?

Mermaids in their palace, or a reality check so callously?
Would it be a new tale of Wonderland that Alice sees?
Swim in and out of windows or fall victim to fallacy?

Ignore the facts and all the โ€œhowsโ€ and โ€œwhys,โ€
Playing like a dolphin in the blue liquid skies –
Or would common sense be my demise?
