Daily Prompt: Escape into your Imagination

P1390384

P1390692

Imagine if you had wings

And could fly through the sky

Soar above the  earth

In the clouds,

Free.

 

Imagine if you could dive

Hold your breath for an age

Swim like a dolphin

Play in the waves,

Free.

 

Imagine a beach

And the warmth of the sun,

A lake and the deep dark

Reflections

A mountain top wild

And a landscape of snow

Sweet scents of

Flowers in a meadow.

Free.

 

Close your eyes

And look

Listen and feel

Breathe in the scents

And be free.

 

Let your imagination

Run

As far as you want

To the places you love

And with those you adore.

Smile.For your mind is

Free.

 

The imagination can be such a positive. Dream and imagine and you can be somewhere  with someone, do something. And just a few moments of escape into the realms of your imagination can change your mood, your outlook and the way you react to the day and to others. So try it and SMILE and be free for a while.

Daily Prompt: The Alien

_1570209

Help me human please as soon you may

For I am not conversant with your ways:

I’m standing here beside the hockey pitch

Have not yet been invited with my stick.

To run around the field that’s  over there,

Instead they’ve left me standing without care.

Perhaps they fear ‘cos I am not the same

I’ll bully off with some outlandish sway

And give the game the opposition’s way.

 

I note the ageing seniors as they pass

Their wrinkled faces dropped beyond their jaws

I offer them the skill that’s on me marked

They must want a facelift for their maws.

Perhaps they cannot hear my little voice

My language may not be their one of choice

For they walk away, conversing in low tones.

About the strange machine parked by the stones.

 

So lonely and so woebegone  am I

To see you brings a tear into my eye

The first to really stop and take a look

And smile at my facade  which they forsook

For you can see my  friendly alien smile

And know that I am  here just for a while

And although you know I look just like a lift

YOU see my alien, parallel world shift.

Beep, burp beep bop twee stip blip

Blop wuv wu.

 

I was walking by the hockey pitch when I got this view of the lift used to repair the lights. They are very high up and require specialised equipment to replace the bulbs etc. Can you see the alien? I did  – it cheered my day and got me to thinking.
