Birds Eye View

Looking down through misty spheres
To visit wondrous lands
Hewn through time, through endless years,
Green fields and golden sands

With glist`ning spreads of sapphire blue
Unfolding `neath my gaze
Then lofty heights of sombre hue
Ascend through misty haze

Beneath the soft and feathered clouds
Rise peaks of emerald green
All topped above with twisting shrouds
Of mist, their tips unseen

And golden plains reach wide and long
Which sparkle in the sun
To then be licked by silv`ry tongues
With threads of silk unspun

Then hov`ring over range and heath
Where roaming creatures dwell
As veils of purple stretch beneath
Enrobing dale and fell

(And yearning, hopeless, specks of dust
Behind confining walls
Beset with envy, greed and lust
Chase dreams in concrete halls)

To fly where beams of gleaming light
On icy rises play
Where fields of pure and dazzling white
Meet deeps of steely grey

And here green curtains hang above
The apex of the world
Dancing as two wrapped in love
With glorious beauty swirled

Then soaring high, beyond, to go
Above all, looking down
At this `blue marble` set below
In her black velvet gown

    Flying high Val. The earth seems so much cleaner from a distance. Especially when the story unfolds in impeccable rhyme.

    Had to grin when you mentioned PH tricks. Have seen a few. Thought this one might have an Escher theme. May not be Escher but still a treat to read. An Emily Dickenson Theory is now on my site.
