Back again :-)

21 Sep

Hi all!

It´s been a long time!

I´m finally back from a 1.5 month long holiday and now looking at a still heavy loaded work desk. I will grab that pen again the minute I get some time and not least visit all your blogs to read your latest work. Can´t wait!

I hope that you all have been well and I look forward to some fun writing with you all again 😀

Big hugs,
Grå Sky

Holiday!

23 Jul

Hello all creative spirits,

It is a heart felt pleasure to share and follow your work online, and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that you are following mine too.

I just wanted to let you know that I will be on holiday for 5 weeks and will not be by my computer. So if I don´t reply to you when you write, then it is not because I don´t appreciate you 🙂

I will be back in September, virtual pen in hand, and reading your inspiring work.

Take care,
Grå Sky

Memories of You 2

18 Jul

Memories of you
smell sweet like rotten fruit
my mouth water
and my stomach turn in convulsion

Memories of You 1

18 Jul

In the memory of you
I become a deer
caught in the head lights
of a 20 tons road train

This is my entry for the Poetry Potluck week 44.

Snowflakes

17 Jul

Like a hot air balloon
you rose, silently

Drifted away
along the lightest wind

I lay in rain and storm
anchored to the ground

Saw tough and taut
the connecting line

A message in a bottle
arrived from afar

The paper withered
it had your writing

I looked up in surprise
pulled the line in the sky

It dissolved into dust
and fell like snowflakes

I stand here still
staring into the void

In the cold shower of the past

The Concrete Bed

13 Jul

I hear a gasp
and smell the blood
a warm and liquid fume

My nostrils creamy
with the sense
my neurons suddenly bloom

Where am I now
I think to myself
realizing I´m on the ground

The concrete hard
against my face
that no longer seems so round

I notice tree tops
hovering
as if part of the sky

I fly above
and see myself
on the road about to die

A sense of wonder
spread throughout
my body feels so cold

A sudden shake
and lights are out
I let the end unfold

The Sea Inside

13 Jul

Long did I sail
under a blackening sky
a ship in stormy waters
on the gloomy sea inside

One night the wind raged
foamy nails speared the hull
I prepared for my fall
breathed my final mouthful

The ship about to break
thunder gave its final roar
light ignited the sea
and a vision there on board

On top the winds do rule
causing monstrous waves that drown
but deep where no light shines
there is stillness and calm ground

I threw an anchor of light
at the bottomless pit of blue
and followed it down where
I peace and wisdom could pursue

On my way down that night
I met creatures from the past
but seeing them up close
they no longer struck me so aghast

At the deepest depths I found
a tranquil space called Home
although water still here flow
no more wild currents roam
