In 55 Words FD MC Challenge 2017 – Day 71

Todays entry is a metaphorical piece about stepping out of one’s comfort zone, inspired by the quote below.

A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.Albert Einstein

Unlike previous entries in this challenge, there’s no overt mind control in this one, but it’s there if you don’t forget to read between the lines. The strange title came to me because I was reminded of the legendary ghost ship The Flying Dutchman and thought it was fun to subvert it because we all know imagination has more wings than the ones we often give it credit for. It’s the most powerful tool/weapon at our disposal and it’s at the basis of our greatest achievements. Going from imagination to action can be quite hard sometimes, but it’s always rewarding, especially when we realize we continue flying. May your ships sail uncharted waters, and may they always find their way home. Until tomorrow.

The Flying Consciousness

The waves were crashing, threatening to sink the world. She stood at the deck, spinning the wheel, as sparks from the thunderous skies above reflected on her eyes and then on his.
“This isn’t real,” he muttered, afraid.
“It will be…” she beckoned, pulling the sail from his heart.
Together, they made the ship fly.
