Breathing Exercises

Sometimes I just get this feeling that Amazing passed by.

A feeling of other world and parchment flavored skies.
A feeling that if I look around, my eyes closed tight,

I'll see wings of burnished copper and lavender covered roofs.
A land of perpetual sunset under the light of three small moons.

Where words are plucked from branches,
scribbled on leaves of coffee stained fibers.

Pen-quilled porcupines offer their services
in exchange for belly rubs and blue green marshmallow wands.

I breathe and it evaporates, this feeling of unseen bliss.

I smile and adjust my shoulders.

The phone rings, as I reach,
I wonder softly at the ink beneath my nails.

Enjoy your weekend, dear readers. May your days be filled with rest, dreaming, and ink stained hands.

So nice to be taken away by that. I think you live a rich life in your imagination. It's a great place to visit.

Like painting pictures with clouds and the colors of the sky, I'd like to pluck words from branches, too.

Happy weekend, to you!

A true delight. I feel like I just unwrapped a present to find out it was exactly what I wanted but didn't know it. Simply beautiful.
