[431] Too Close To The Sun

Flight by Maya Emerald

𝐈 – 𝘍𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵/𝘈𝘮𝘣𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯⁣

In a dreamer’s dream⁣
you arrived within a time storm⁣
nudging me to my fate⁣
and I followed you up⁣
like you were Icarus’s sun⁣

𝐈𝐈 – 𝘍𝘢𝘭𝘭/𝘓𝘰𝘴𝘴⁣

A falling dream ⁣
is a common occurrence⁣
for beings without control⁣
for birds without wings⁣
for dreamers without reality⁣

𝐈𝐈𝐈 – 𝘍𝘪𝘳𝘮/𝘓𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨⁣

In a dreamer’s reality⁣
I meet you again ⁣
I finally realise the tender thread between⁣
being lost in your fantasy and⁣
manifesting my own reality


NaPoWriMo Day 12: I’m calling this one “Past and Future.” This prompt challenges you to write a poem using at least one word/concept/idea from each of two specialty dictionaries: Lempriere’s Classical Dictionary and the Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction. 

I chose the word; time storm and Icarus from Dictionary of Science Fiction and Classical Dictionary respectively. I chose the concept of Icarus’s myth and put it in the story of a dreamer who has to face his reality by understanding the difference between fantasy and imagination.
