Reaching Up

written by: Any1mark



I touched the sky

My trembling hands stretched

Clouds danced against fingers

My stress fading ever so quickly

Shadows my eyes cast removed

Color soaring across grey memories

I remember today to breathe deeply

I remember today to smile

Distant thoughts set free to drift

Far away the problems seem small

I touched the sky

Hands steady as a rock

Tonite I dream in peace



Mark, a traveler with a working problem. I spend my time writing poetry, flash fiction, and taking pictures of the world. I have time because I'm waiting for the Ckeveland Browns to win a Super Bowl.
