Reaching from my circle

Grasping thin air with unworthy fingers
Utopia
stretching beyond
where endless time
flows
like empty space between yes and no

Closing my eyes
feeling my spirit
rise and fall
between inhales and exhales
A stair-like
connection
from here to there

From here
to where...

I paint a blue canvas

Thoughts
chipped from rainbows
while colors
of life
love and strife
support and sustain

Wherever I go
invisible
within my circle

Lately Rex, I feel alot like your last lines. I'm okay within the circle. Maybe later I'll feel good leaving it again. Good poem though.

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.

The majority of us travel the land, meet and greet, within our own circle, and we aren't really invisible for the most part. I like to think I step outside my circle here and there, but I wonder if I really, actually do.

Love this one Rex and I think we can all relate to those last lines.

the punchline talks to me too, the poem too of course, we share a lot on these poetic words, very nicely done

This means a lot, Rex. We've had too many losses. The circle has both widened, and become smaller, at the she time. Thank you, Poet.
