An Escapist’s Retreat

Image credit; Sylvian Sarrailh @ Digiartque

A doorway to a fantasy
an escapist's retreat 
created by a sentient machine
A.I is the hip kid around the block
disassociate as I steep
sedative soothing therapy 
step into Studio Ghibli 
the skies are bluer 
the clouds white and fluffy 
the meadows are brilliant green
with flowers that smell sweet
yet this is nascent 
I wonder what the future will be?
remember all this is made up
a simulation indeed

An image that made me think hard. A.I can make lives easier, yet you can fall into its trap and enslave yourself. The escapist within me loves it, while the shred of ground reality tells me I should be aware that this is only a simulation.
