The Powerful Mind

The night air is cool to my lungs. A light breeze softly kisses my cheek as my eyes look up to the silence of the sky. I can hear the crickets off in the distance chirping their magical tune. Here it is 2AM in the morning and noone is around, the world seems so quiet and void of people. The darkness is broken slightly by the twinkle of the starlight. I can feel my eyes cover in water as it seems my mind has seperated from my body. I feel almost weightless as my eyes soar to the sky. There is a disconnect as I let my gaze go deeper into the stars. I am here, alone at this single moment and I can feel relaxed. Like the last person on a long beach, I can feel peace and harmony. The world is mine and I can dream without interruption. Weightless, my spirit can soar to the clouds or ride on the wind, I can travel to places distant and as far as the planets. I leave behind my body as I let my mind travel with the thoughts, wherever they carry me. Floating along the waves of the oceans, or skipping like a stone across a lake. My mind can carry me anywhere that makes me feel safe, anywhere I may want to go.

    When will Steven Spielberg be releasing this movie? Meanwhile, if you have not entered Craig Cornish member's contest "Talking to Yourself" you should think about it because you could win it with both hands tied behind your back!

    Good-morning Donald, I love the power of the mind, and how you took us far into the comfort of you. At night I like to close my eyes, and imagine all before I nod off. My imagination is strong, and I have so much going on in my mind. I'm glad you shared that the imagination has no limit! always~ Linda

    Dear Donald, As I gaze at the stars, I stop at the intersection of YOUR gaze. I follow YOUR Dreams and Thoughts through the POETIC Imagination of YOUR Mind. As I go on my way to the star I dream upon, I think; will I find the words to express myself as Eloquently as YOU. Superb Pen.LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry - I await YOUR Quill to speak its Wisdom to me again.
