Castle In The Sky


You go to where the moon floats high in the sky.
A place where the sun never sets.
The gentle breeze flows through the mind,
like feathers touching skin.
Stirring thoughts of places we never knew,
other than through our minds eye.
Physical boundaries move with the gossamer,
never to inhibit, yet protecting as required.

When thirst visits our bodies,
warm rain falls, gathering in lucid pools
to slake the driest of throats.
Hunger is satisfied by natures bounty,
flourishing in sensual glades.

Thoughts of life filter into my mind,
bringing all humanity into focus.
There is peace within these walls,
turmoil abounds beyond.
The sun beats down, never harshly,
warming the surrounding skin.
One day soon, I hope to join you there,
I know you are waiting whilst I find the path.

  1. A Castle, with protective walls to lie and dream behind, to be held safe within…whilst all about can be turmoil, we are serene… we are in a dream, we are complete…when we finally reach our destination…
    Loved the feelings emanating from your words and storyline Trevor… an attainable dream, just slightly out of reach to us mere mortals… xx

    • Thanks Pen,
      I had to go on an extended journey after yesterdays profusion, I had to find another release for the words. I spotted this picture early this morning and in not time flat I was transported to this place, just beyond reach. Fantasy may be the next adventure for my words I think, I’m getting mired in emotions that I need to escape from.

      • you know I sometimes find that a picture does the same for me..,I can just sit and stare at it and compose a scenario from there…I find a lot through google images, or Photobucket…I just think of a theme and away I go…Anything which helps unlock the imagination is fantastic..xx

  2. lovely, Trevor, simply lovely.
