If you are as well-versed as I am in the art of making flying carpets, you will know that they are hardly extra-ordinary in appearance. Here you can see one of these flying contraptions parked at a car park, I mean, carpet park.
So unremarkable and disappointing it is in the looks department that many have said they preferred the back of the carpet for at least, it looked more like a real carpet, they claimed. As its maker, I am of course a little offended at such an insensitive comparison. I mean, this is after all a magic carpet! How can they compare it to a real carpet?
Perhaps if I can demonstrate its flying prowess, you will see what I mean.
So ABRACADABRA, FLY carpet, FLY.......
Here it is, seating one comfortably, floating over what appears to be an extinct and long eroded volcano. This is my flying carpet in poetic motion. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Flying Carpet announces, please remain seated and fasten your seat belt, for we are landing in Sigiriya where it's rock walls has housed frescoes since the 5th century BC and is said to be the largest natural picture gallery of the world!
Now swooooosh, off we go again, amidst the 1000 year old roots of the Old Banyan Tree, as we fly through 18th century Galle Road in the new capital city, Colombo. Can you see how this magnificent tree grows across the road like a triumphal arch, ooooh, watch your head, ladies and gentlemen.
How about some meditation time in the niche of Sri Maha Bodhi, said to be one of the oldest planted tree in the world? All the way in Anuradhapura , the ancient capital of Ceylon? Well, why not? With my flying carpet, all that's impossible becomes possible! So close your eyes and be brought back 2000 years from now and when you open them again..
..you may be atop giant foliage in streaks of pink, matching your flying carpet, matching your new sari , in perfect fashion harmony.
So can you see now?
Can you see how my magic tapestry
make the ordinary, extra-ordinary?
