Velvet Sky Of Peace
Author: Pondering Red


At first I noticed the sky -
the bluest blue
melted over the buildings.
I felt exhilarated -
as if the city had disappeared -
as if I was a thousand years away
in the past of
a million stars.

Then a scent of freshness overcame me -
a smell of childhood days and nights -
a fragrance that would have been from
a very long time ago,
undisturbed by modern pace and bad energys.
The sky became a deeper blue -
magical against the december tree branch

I was alone
with the perfect untouched sky,
blue velvet - deep and gorgeous -
and with the most pleasant scent
of the earth and the winds -
crisp and real -
undisturbed -
such grace and stillness -
amidst all the faded busyness.

May Peace Be The Journey !!!
