Infinity







each step moving forward
tangles in sharp edged creepers
cutting memories fresh,
red thick heart oozes out;
impressions, every last page, it pricks
the next step forward,
an empty, hollow space screams;
fear lurches like dragons of the myths
yet there is a sky yonder
blue and deep where
dreams do fly like flocks of birds
together, together as
adorable younglings with their mother,
the invisible wings of an unknown beat inside;
love, hope, ecstasy, compassion?
 invisible wings, they are free like those dreams
and they do take you, drag you forward
giving you infinity…

  1. You remind me vividly how challenging and brave it can take to make that first step forward ~ The invisible wings are always with us, free to bring us further if we can to ~ Thanks for the lovely response Sreeja and wishing you happy week ~

  4. dreams do fly like flocks of birds
    together, together as

    the invisible wings of an unknown beat inside... love that part esp... new dreams are always so fragile but so powerful as well

  8. Dreamers first, bold, brazen, imaginative--then the goal is comprehensible; like that we both chose the same image & found ourselves in similar states of creativity & mind. Image prompts do amaze me relative to the variety of responses they elicit & produce.

    possibilities and hopes live here - we just need to reach for them, to walk towards what might be…
    Sorry to quote back, but I really enjoy that.
