celestial playground

walking on the quagmire
I hold on to the sky.
I am afraid to fall down
but moon lets me hold its hand
and stars play with me

"eternity is much too soon for me"

Update on 24th Jan, 2011: I wasn't aware that what I wrote here is in a way, is some sort of sign for me. I seem to be in an emotionally/mentally exhausted state. So closing my poetry for now. Dunno when I will get back. It might be after one day, three days, few weeks, a month or months. But I will be back. Renewal is the key. As always. Please bear with me if I am unable to visit you.

  3. "I hold on to the sky."
    Difficult to achieve but worth trying...

  4. Lovely verse--- it seems you and me and Brian are doing a three part harmony. Now I must go and grab the moon' hand --- nothing like a bit of whimsy and flight of fancy to begin and end the day.

  19. I hope things are all okay; and wish you the best!

    I can understand the emotional and mental exhaustion; though I understand it is different and personal with each of us.

    Sending good wishes our way! And, will await your return, because you will be missed; and you are great!

    Take care (hugs)
