55 - life on a prayer







picture yourself adrift on that cloud
of cottonwool high in the sky,
under warm breezes of angels wings
as round you they flitter and fly.
chants being sung by heaven’s choir,
their notes hang like mist in the air,
a solitary soul in the lap of the gods,
the beauty of life on a prayer.





every friday, compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. if you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...post your story and report to the boss G-Man

  12. Your poetry is so amazing...its the type that should be in a softback book carried in a big oversized bag filled with the needs of summer...yes, I'd need such a book as this on any journey I'm undertaking.
