What do you see #107 – November 8, 2021

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a castle in the clouds. A surreal image created by the clouds that surround it.

From the crowd below I am lifted
I drift towards the beautiful white castle
High on a cloud
Inside is full of colour
Stunning stained-glass windows
Not seen from outside
So many people dressed 
in the finest silks I have ever seen
The long banquet table overflowing
With food and exotic fruits
My stomach rumbles at the rich aroma
Warm an unspoken welcome
I sit across from a beautiful woman
With dark smiling eyes
She speaks of much for me to discern
Did I die, in that muddy flat land at Glastonbury?
Have I reached Heaven?
Has my body been trampled, buried below?
Will I be missed?
I awake inside my tent covered in dry mud
Remembering nothing of last night’s concert
My only memory is of the white castle
The clouds, was it drug induced?
Could it have been real? 
a glimpse of the afterlife?
I spent the rest of my life 
believing the latter to be so…
