Escape

fire escape in Sacramento, California

Cubicle free
In open air
My mind ascends
Toward
That patch of blue
Searching for something
Beautiful and true
A world without walls
Beyond the fear and necessity
That boxes us in
No more boundaries
Set by hate and sin
A new order
That rises
From tear-stained earthly ruins
A new meaning
That lasts
Long after
My blue reverie
Is through.

    1. Hi Ralph! 🙂 No, I did not have to embarrass myself by lying down on the sidewalk to take this picture. 😀 The fire escape was high enough above me so that I could bend backward while standing. I enjoy taking pictures at weird angles. 🙂
      Thanks for taking the time to leave a fun comment and to like this post and some of my other blog posts. I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. 🙂

          1. That’s great that your back is okay Arlene and, yes, Saturday has been a good day. I do hope the same for you.
