"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift; that's why they call it the present"

Stops still
Petrifying, arms
Drifting lifeless, face
Closed in concord, quiescent;
Eyes seeing and unseeing
Blue, blue whirls
Of tranquil, sailing under the
Lazy waves of
Never ending space that pops
With the popping bubbles
Flying away
Like fantasies, and nothing
Reigns, with the cool
Warmth of the
Miracle liquid of life draping
The skin like silken velvet-
Now composing flawlessly
The harmonious
Notes of the silent music-

This has been majorly influenced by how I feel when I just completely relax underwater,( among many other things) when everything around stops still, and the world feel weightless. It's a curious feel.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

I guess I'd say I feel the exact same way but in a different position. I feel all that serenity floating atop water. It's simpl glorious. That feeling, isn't it? And I ache for it so much nowadays, no pool here :( Had a great one in the last town. ah, well... I like the poem :)))
