Scenery of Dreams

Updated on January 23, 2012



Lifting off softly

grazing every treetop under my feet

an Autumn dance atop them

a final chance beyond them

towering trees grow smaller

as my altitude climbs higher

The mountains blend

as I ascend

The clouds, like oceans, drown me

in welcoming grey blankets

just before I plummet

to the earth in liquid form




_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_~_




shades echo across this field

conflict with streaming sunlight

a ripple effect of shadows

waltzing dark and light

`

air moves freely through the blades

of greener sights than ever seen,

speaking to the senses, things

still yet uncertain in their meaning

`

Particles, my platform

to oversee a city

Casually, crossing

the stretch between these buildings

`

Effortless, my flight

Limitless, my sight

as the canvas of the evening

is painted into night

      I stop by on occasion. Actually posted a hub a week ago. This website really changed drastically. I don't write nearly as often as I used to. Thank you for your support back in the day, and now. I'm glad someone's still enjoying!

      Are you still here. Ben?

      I have not been on HP for ages, except to read, occasionally. But I "rediscovered" you just now, and am so happy to have done so.

      This is a feast of sensations... almost physical in their impact.

      Great work.

      I'd say I'm flying high but people will misunderstand me. So, I say - it's a glorious delight, brilliantly beautiful!

      What a gorgeous view. Corcovado is perfect for this beautiful piece.

      Hi Ben, sorry I haven't been visiting much, have been busy.

      In both pieces I sense you have become one with nature as you ascend, a pity you plummeted in the first one, but they are both beautiful.

      Beautifully expressed, I could see you soaring through the night in tune with this brilliant back drop of light as everything around you feels smaller. I enjoyed the music you chose it fit this piece really well Ben. Good work, Voted Up, awesome and beautiful my poetic friend.
