Magic Carpet ride
by Alexa Sz

I sat upon the soft detailed carpet
we rose into the air
out of the window
seeing the world
New York, Rome, Greece, Paris, London, Tibet, Beijing,
Budapest, Oslo, Munich, India, African plains, Jerusalem, West Bank, etc
What was the best is the people and the culture
how different each one is but yet wanting the same thing
riding the magic carpet made me think about how everyone
in the world
could work together
to make peace
but there is still those internal
disagreements
peace between enemies
hurts further

In real life I was my imagination
and the carpet was my dream
the future is my hope

      I'd trade my bike for a day of magic carpet ride. This idea transports me to a magical realm!

      Really nice, especially the second. If that we could all unite in peace. . . not in my lifetime I fear.

      Great tune. I have a sister 17 years older than me. I remember she liked this song.

      How wonderful!!
      High above the world the differences between us fade and all that remains is that what unites us.. It is a beautiful wish for the future that we may all work together to make peace come true.
      The patterns in the carpets are really lovely.

      Noble idea, Antonio!
      Culture differences and peace above all else.
      And you found a great bond to bring the issue: magic carpet.
      Just DELIGHTFUL!
