Foreword . . .
Tick tock says the magic clock
In a language that’s part of the soul
Get in line for the gate
You don’t want to be late
For your trip down the rabbit hole…
Our everyday lives are filled to the brim with mostly ordinary things, like work, taking and picking up the dry cleaning, school, homework, dinner, and striving to have enough time for family and friends. We are busy in this modern world, filled with reality… and yet something is missing.
But what if you could sit down for just a little while and escape to someplace special… someplace magical and quirky? What if you could escape by slipping down the rabbit hole to a place of your choosing? What if you travel somewhere you’ve never been and be back before anybody even knew you were gone? What if reading the adventures of others inspired you to embark on some adventures of your own?
It gives me great pleasure to invite you inside the pages of this book. You will find all kinds of lovely people, places and things. You can meet Alice or Dorothy or the infamous Mr. Rabbit. You can slip easily down the rabbit hole and be transported to worlds that contain the ordinary and not so ordinary.
“Down the Rabbit Hole” is a collective work of writings from poets who like you, live their lives inundated with the challenges and demands of everyday life. They have unlocked the door to boundaries we all make for ourselves and turned those boundaries into fantastic, beautiful worlds to both help ease the boredom and perhaps spark the imagination.
Go ahead and make that cup of tea…add honey or sugar if you’d like…then sit down, close your eyes, and prepare to be transported to places you have never traveled to before. Come with me… I’ve got your hand. Here we go… Down the Rabbit Hole.
