Falling Upwards - a Little Poem

Vacuum - little scribbling by Violet Flame, 2013

Air has eluded me, much

like reason

or good sense.

If I were falling

Shouldn't there come a time

of splashing against some

horizontal hard surface?

Who says I'm not falling

upwards

and fish were now flying

in the sky that was once the ocean

and we have been wrong about it all

for a very long time

      Ah Ha Ha thanks a lot Ed! Cheers to humorous possibilities! I am always looking for a good laugh! I love hanging around with people who could happily laugh at themselves. Some people are so dead serious it gives me the creeps, lol. When we take things too seriously, it has a way of preventing further wisdom. Actually, though, on a slightly serious note, humour is a very cunning agent, in the way that it dissolves all defence and resistance. So laugh away my friend! :-)

      "The grief and sense of loss that we often attribute to a failure in our personality is actually a feeling of emptiness where a beautiful and strange otherness was meant to be encountered."

      Thank you James-wolve, sometimes it really pays to turn our world view upside down to check for cobwebs, lol. So many things we deem to be true or take for granted are no more then someone else's presumption. What is our own truth? Does it matter if it does not confirm with the common world view?
