(Mirage In Mist- Acrostic poem)
C Contemplating, cogitating, agitating
A Airy cottony gossamer web of thoughts
S Sending goose bumps up down my spine
T Titillating, tantalizing confusing even more
L Love drenched, my fantasies know no bounds
E Enmeshed in towering sky high aspirations
S Seeking solace in wild daydreams galore
I Inch by foot by yard by furlough by mile
N No limit to the widening length and breadth
A All within my eager actively seeking grasping hands
I In a jiffy all came toppling down, crashing with a thud
R Ruining dreams propelled by intense love weaving castles in air
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
Henry David Thoreau
1817-1862, American Essayist, Poet, Naturalist
By reading the characteristic features of any man’s castles in the air
you can make a shrewd guess as to his underlying desires which are frustrated.
John Dewey, American, Philosopher Quotes
Neurotics build castles in the air, psychotics live in them. My mother cleans them.
Rita Rudner, American, Comedian Quotes
Castles in the air – they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build as well.

To know your ruling passion, examine your castles in the air.
