Upside down...

I should be walking
on a sky like this
Orange and pink
a candy floss float
Waving goodbye
to leafy green skies
and a girl in a dream
of painfree smiles
and lullabyes.

Hold still and paint this
keep this
for the hurting times
when breezes and birds
fly by unheard
and I am lost
in my upside down world.

Hang in there, Shai! The world will right itself again eventually. Hope the goblins aren't too malign...

Beautifully put and well worth passing on to others, (specially those who may walking through a similar period) and feeling the same. You have a gift for words, thank you so much for sharing.

By the way , I think most of us are, you are not the only one. Lets share our strategies to find a clue towards the path.

yep..def. good to have some warmth stored in our pockets for cold days...the good thing with life and roller coasters is that they go down at times but always up again as well..

Brian Miller said... is def good to capture those times that are beautiful and great and carry them with us in our pockets for those days that are not so much...

Beautiful images. I like the idea of archiving those kinds of scene for those times when things are more difficult.
