Clouds

Hello!!!
Down there!!!
Can you hear me?
I have so much to say!
Maybe I can draw your attention…

 

Wow look!!
That one looks like…
A person fishing!
The stories those clouds could tell,
Do you ever wonder?

 

Finally!!
You see me.
Now listen close…
I have travelled the world from end to end,
Seen hope and despair,
Love and tragedy,
And I am here to tell you,
The world is dark,
And dangerous,
Unless you provide the light!
Be the sunshine,
And light the way for all!

 

It must be nice,
Living the simple life above the world…
No worries,
No responsibilities,
Just the sky in which,
You can float away…

 

Maybe one day,
They will understand,
You don’t need to be a cloud,
To live the simple life,
Above the world,
Floating through the sky.

A Fever

Folder: 
Voodoo

Brilliant warm reds

caress the darkening sky

A fever pitch of

colored emotion

I am not at all

at peace

Pieces come un glu ed

with blue blurred

lines and a hopscotch

of memories


Spinning and spinning

Eyes upward, heart heartward, feet floating

 

I can swim but sometimes drowning scares

the hell out of me

Inside. I stay there often; too often.

Too often, time is reduced to

tentative and fleeting moments.

Brilliant warm reds

caress the darkening sky

A fevered pitch of

colored emotion

I am not at all at peace

Pieces come un glu ed

Though, sometimes-

the glow of sunshine

defrosts my thoughts

and devastates my

structured palace

The walls, they tumble down

And, in the span of two small breaths

I step outside

to not just watch

but to become.

Two small breaths

-Laughter

Two small breaths

-Joy

Two small breaths

-Surrender

Two small breaths

-Drowning


Spinning and spinning

Eyes upward, heart heaving, feet frantic

 

The heavy drum of heartache

beats beats beats

I can swim

but only

if I stay inside

Only, inside.

SIMPLY SPOKEN #68 FLOATING AWAY

 

Leaves dry up

change colors

catch in a breeze

float away.

Balloon

Balloon

Big in the sky

Suspended grand and high

Orb of merrily glowing light

But then just before dusk of every day

The string attached to earth unties

As it floats slowly by

My lips whisper

Good bye
