Thoughts on imagination

Imagination is good within limits ,
like a cup of coffee on a winter morning .
Too much of it , I feel , disconnects you
from reality , like a narcotic substance .
Keeps you on a high artificially .
It is required in some measure -
under certain circumstances .

As of now I am inclined to cast my vote
in favor of "real" and only real .
Imagination only to the extent that
it is needed to assimilate the real .
And of course , one can not say no to
the spontaneous flows .

But , I am for getting more real ,
even if it means , changing tracks .
I speak only for myself as of now .
