The Hint of Forever

270 - Copy

Feet all too solid on the ground,

and looking up makes me dizzy.

But to not look up through the worldly web, through the twisted intertwining threads of confusion and oppositional tyranny

means that I have given up on reaching the blue—heaven haven.

It means I have despaired of anything beyond the chaos, the dark spindly hope that wraps itself snuggly around halting breaths of prayer,

and looks up,

looks to the hint of forever just past the carnal canopy.

    Bad choice of words – sorry! You are helping me, too, to not give up on looking up. Thank you.

    “… carnal canopy.” I like that. It says it all in two words. And the photos illustrate the two words beautifully or there is a choice to go on forever.

  4. Love this. You had me at “oppositional tyranny”

I would love to hear from you!
