Expanding my horizons

A mist, a soft breeze comes over me, unexpectedly!

I’m alone, and so far from home.  

I’m left open, I’m vulnerable to the elements.

The skylight, the twilight.

I made a vow that night.

I made a vow to continue my search.

I made a vow from the sea to emerge.

Brilliant flashes of light, Illuminate me!

A living legend, who can it be?

I’ve become distracted by their spectacle.

I reflect, and so….

I call it, “expanding my horizon”.

My dreams go far beyond, where the sky ends.

I feel the universe cannot contain me.

There’s thunder, lightning, it’s raining, but this is all

just a part of my painting.

I can see, the sea almost changing.

Bluebirds and red robins.  I gave her my heart, so I am all in.

At this moment in time, I’m fallen.

 

What this means, pictures and themes.

I’ll paint a million pictures with dreams.

Spark, imaginations with scenes because everything is not as it seems.

Vivid colors, flowers and trees.

I’ve got powers to freeze.

Suspended in time, I’ve been befriended with rhymes.

I’ve been befriended with lines.  I’m clever at times, but I’m barely alive.

It is, because of humanity?   I’m glad you see because this worldwide tragedy, has caused me to become above average.  Averagely!!   

I still need help from a girl, who can manage me.

Intriguing?   I’m leaving the forest glade.

Ultimately, there’s nothing more to say.

Hours and minutes, my powers diminish.

Brilliant flashes of light, illuminate me!

A living legend, who can it be?

I’ve become distracted by their spectacle.

I reflect, and so…..

I call it, “expanding my horizon”.

My dreams go far beyond, where the sky ends.

The universe, cannot contain me.

There’s thunder, lightning, it’s raining, but this is all just a part of my painting.
