douglas Posted August 9, 2011 Share Posted August 9, 2011 Today I found myself lost Sitting upon a large expanse of groomed green lawn Enclosed on either side by the grand ivory arms of Victorian architecture In the distance Beyond the trees the sea Turbulent and indigo Smashing away toward a smudged and foreign horizon Heavy clouds above Imposing Shape-shifting Cold and grey The messengers of transience and impermanence And I thought of the mountain Of familiar places Feeling an unwanted coolness clutching at me Fading dreams and dying passions Like broken strings of pearls Scattering onto marble floors And a fatigue slithered through my mind Poisoning my muscles Strangling what remains of my youth I must escape these constructs and impositions These insidious tendrils of expectation and judgement Growing like suffocating ivy out of the mouths and eyes Of so many encircling my life It is time to choose freedom To fall into rhythm with synchronicity It is again time for bare feet and soft sand For sensuality, silences and happiness Quote To receive love, you have to give it...
