From A View Unknown

The bright sky after the storm.
The rains smell washed clean.
confessions of the innocent gentle and forlorn.

As in visions we seek the a place beyond
what others can claim to have seen.
As the view does vanish.
we reflect apon its perfection as is 
caught within a dream.

Hands of ice thoughts as stubborn 
cast in stone.
To bitter to admit the pain
So prison from a view unknown.

In a dark landscape there may exist light
over the next ridge but who will journey to see.
It's a choice we must make to try and fail
or wallow in misery.

Children dream without limits so why should
we stop with time.
Age effects all like the pages
of a book of rhyme.

We dream so long only to marvle to the
monsters weve grown.
Thoughts for sale are a mystery.
from this view unknown

    Thats the trouble we stop following our dreams when we get punched in the face by life, we must all make a stand and carry on our dreams so we can live them! Great write, love Simone

    Admitting the pain,seeking the bright Sky after the dark storm In a dark landscape there may exist light,Hopeful indeed are your thoughts penned here my friend,and till we find that light lets dream like innocent children do,so beautifully penned are your words John ..Charma

    I really like the descriptiveness in the first stanza of this one. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara

    If we don't make the journey, we shall surely never see the light. That's what life is all about, taking chances and hoping for brighter days ahead. We could learn a lot from the children who "dream without limits." This is a very inspiring write, John! Deep and nicely penned with imagery and imagination. Much love, Carolyn
