Cloud silence

When the world is spinningtoo fast and too farand the voices rant and ravein the ravaged silence of my soulwould you lie with me and just watch the clouds? When my heart gets brokenand tears flow from its cracksand I’m lostin a life that doesn’t understand mewould you lie with me and just watch the […]

Giant Jellies

Giant jellies float across the landscape stretching before me. The earth beneath my feet damp from the recent downpour joined by by the wholesome scent of soil and plants and life. Far off the huge jellyfish continue to wend their way through the blue sky each separate yet moving in unison. The bodies of their […]

Peaks Above

A cold wind blows, eyes watering, breath catching beneath an azure sky.  Rock at my feet, as I stand atop the lovely peak.  Boulders and scree edge away, sloping down to the shores, not of water  but of cloud.  Below me a sea of billowing white. I’m surrounded by this ocean, but not alone.  The distance reveals more, more islands amongst the waves: other mountains tall enough to […]
