I looked out of the window
Beyond lay the world
Streets, lamp-posts, houses
People, dogs, bins and unending roads...
It filled my vision from one
corner to the other of my eyes
All engulfing and all ecompassing
Until there was nothing more to life
than streets, lamp-posts, houses
People and unending roads...
And then when it all pressed
down upon my heart a bit too much
when the weight of mundane life
rode unending roads to no avail
I raised my eyes just a tad bit upwards...
A sudden spark of blue made itself known
There was the open sky above
high above endless roads and frustrated lives!
I raised my eyes some more
and the blue was a jewel growing bigger, brighter....
The world receded, became ever so little
its burdens insignificant
its demands futile
its promises of pleasure
so very unimportant.....
The Sky called
to freedom from a soul less life
to rise above the mundane
to a flight full of delight
to a journey towards
