My eyes are open now
and they see life’s pattern
I’m sorry I stayed in the sand
forever, it seemed
but the truth is clear as can be
in my lovely blue sky
and I will move on
because I’m ready to fly
(Poem is fiction in the present,
but true from the past)

One way to look at it, Eric! 🙂
lovely blue sky..makes us want to try to live ..to fly 🙂
Thank you so much, Kalabalu, for your lovely comment and words we all can relate to…:)
Beautiful … like your new gravatar too. 🙂
Thanks, Safia, I’m glad you enjoyed this and thanks for your gravatar complement, too…have a wonderful day. 🙂
Beautifully written and read Lauren.
Life changes all the time and we move and change too; we must or we find ourselves stuck! ❤ HBL xx
Thanks so much, Chris, and that is exactly what I was conveying about friendship or love…if the time comes, it’s our choice to finally see the light and move on…sometimes, it’s very hard, though, but it’s better than being stuck! 🙂 HBL ♥
Thanks, Iris, for your support, always! I’m slow at reading other blogs, but I’ll be over your way today! xx
You’re welcome! =)
And take your time! I’ve been only posting old poems lately, since my Muse seems to have left me… I’m searching for a new one, because I think she won’t return anytime soon. I hope my inspiration will come back quickly! I want to write, but the words just won’t come…
Thanks for understanding and I’ve been there, feeling a little panicky, thinking that I’ll never write again. Then inspiration comes from out of the blue, so hang in there. Your Muse will arrive again soon! 🙂
Thanks for the encouraging words!
Anytime! I need them, too! 🙂 Have a great day!
Lovely use of blue sky and notion of flying. I take it that you mean ‘head in the sand’ but having just been for a lovely swim and felt the warm sand on the soles of my feet, I wonder could one ever stay there too long?
Thanks, Jean, and yes, that’s what I meant, relaying to a relationship that is not working out…making the choice to “see clearly” and move on…otherwise, I agree with you about the beach. 🙂
Beautiful! I really enjoy this and can apply it to how I’m feeling/what’s going on in my life right now 🙂
Thanks very much, Christie, and I’m glad you can relate too…:)
A wonderful poem, Lauren! 🙂
Thanks, Marina, and free of anything negative in our lives is the only way to move forward and fly…:)
exactly so!! 😉 xx
Fly… fy! I love this x
Thanks so much, Pooky! I’m glad you enjoyed this! xx
Being ready to fly somewhere better is always a great moment! I’ve definitely felt like that a few times in my life. And beautifully said and spoken!! 😀
It sure is and thanks so much for your kind comment, Suzy! I hope you are doing well! 🙂
Very lovely Lauren…beautiful way to start ones day…reading your words! Blessings!
Aww…thanks, Wendell, I appreciate your words to end my day, too! Blessings to you, as well!
Soar beyond the stars my friend.
I’m soaring…thanks, Kim! 🙂
This makes me want to fly into that sky. Happy almost weekend!
This sky is pretty amazing, isn’t it, Sheila? I hope you get the chance to fly and it’s great that tomorrow is Friday, too! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
Love it. Reminds me of that great Irving Berlin standard ‘Blue Skies’ (Dinah Washington did my favorite cover of it, so I always hear her in my head!). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Skies_%281926_song%29 Makes a lovely accompaniment to reading your poem!!
Thanks, Kathryn, and I knew my title was a common one, but I’m glad you enjoyed, anyway! I remember that song, too! xoxo
Beautifully written.. and said of course!
Thank you very much, Rohan!
