A poem, An unbelievable view

When i awoke, I was laying across my bed

Sitting alone on top of a faraway mountain

Looking toward the Heavens in outerspace

I see visions of beauty

Lights glimmering in the distance

A beacon calling me

Me feeling no resistance

As i gently slide into the abyss

I feel joy and start to wish

Twinkle twinkle little star

How i wonder how far away you are?

Then i look and see sparks of lightning

Crack, pop, funny, I'm not afraid

The vision is breath-taking

Clouds swirling, Angels singing a sweet serenade

Veil lifted, eye's seeing

God's Heaven vividly displayed

Then i quietly step back onto the mountain's jagged edge

A shade is slowly closing

As i look and see a rainbow shining on the cliff's ledge

When i awoke, I was laying across my bed

Remembering the visions as my mind thrust ahead

Was i dreaming? It seemed so very real

I'm in awe. A dream took me away

To feel and reveal

The beauty on the other side

I now feel blissful

And filled with joyful pride

How i journeyed into this venture

I haven't a clue

I can only relate

It was an unbelievable view

Up, awesome and beautiful! The picture and the poem are the perfect depiction of a dream. They can sometimes seem so real...as if you've moved into a new dimension. You've captured it beautifully.

God is on the other side of the illusion or dream we call life and this poem describes beautifully your reconnection with God. This is love. Thank you for this truly beautiful experience.

Ruby, those awesome visions you have seen are normally seen by people while they are dying, and they also experience all the emotions you described so beautiful. You know how many stories have been told about this? I’m NOT a prophet of doom, but I suggest you go for a thorough medical check-up. Your dream may have been a friendly warning, don’t you agree? Love you! xxx

Fay, Spirit, Hyphen, Pras, Mentalist, Martie. Thank you all for reading. This is poetry only. It didn't happen. I asked another friend how she got her inspiration for her poems and she said sometimes from a picture, so that is what i did. I saw the picture and my imagination took me there.So Martie, i'm sorry if i scared you. It was just something new i wanted to try. I don't thing i will go there anymore.

Cheers to you all. I appreciate you all.

With that in mind, i will write more of what i feel. Your encouragement was needed. Thank you again.

We do go back in time here in Hubville ( Maggie ) I think she could start a new series using us all as her Characters, wouldn't that be a hoot? Thank you for coming by. You made my day. What can i say about George that i haven't said? He is THE best and i'm so glad that he's found happiness. I saw him on The Crook and Chase show not long ago and he spoke about his turbulent past. I found myself saying," Yea, My man George, The greatest singer in the whole wide world.

I found this poem to be from one who also has a wild imagination, who is not afraid to explore that which is within. Not one of fear, or anything else. But as you share...a minds vision from that of a painting or picture and even a photo. I find it amazing what our minds conjur up when we allow them to run wild and in all directions, don't you always? : ) Great poem. I really like it, because you are sharing what you saw through the picture.

And of course it was you who gave me the inspiration for this one, remember when i asked you how you got your inspitation?

This was such a wonderful experience for me. Thank you my Dear poetic friend.

BTW Cagsil, name calling is a two edged sword, a mirror reflecting back to the viewer.

What a wonderful hub Ruby;I think you have worked your way upwards and onwards since I have been away.

Each word spot on;

Sometimes we have to take a few steps backwards to see what we have with a clear eye and mind. In my few months away I have returned to find beauty,loving,compassion and such a growth in each writer.

You stated in one of your comments on my work saying that I'd said I'd never leave again because I had promised and i never break a promise. This was so cherished Ruby and has settles deeply cushioned in my heart ;and you are so right I will never lie to you or anyone else. returning to HubPages is indeed like returning home. A poem where these is not cruelty,abuse,pain,sadness and the mental pain the one where there are no scars to be seen but the scars lie deep and are far more damaging than these others.

Oh yes I am HOME now Ruby and home to stay!!

Lots of love and hugs all for you Ruby from my little corner of Wales.

I may have commented earlier I am not sure but this is just a beautiful the second time around. I think that is a wonderful idea to see a picture and let our minds take over. You did a wonderful job! Thank goodness for the share button as I am happy I got to read this one more time.

I'm carried away to your beautiful journey of an unbelievable view. The photograph is breathtaking and to be on the top of it, is majestic! When I clicked on the video, it gave me this message on the video screen: This video contains content from EMI, who has blocked it in your country for copyright grounds.

Beautiful poem!
