My dwelling rests on a cloud,
sole inhabitant
entities pause at my door.
Wise other presence
make known
castle in the sky
is my illusion
empathetic support.
Patient messengers:
“One day,
cloud will vanish
sidestepping no longer an option,
fantasy balloon’s
same spot were you took flight.”

escape brings no change
dreams calms imagination
at rest, time stands still,
a gift, tranquil refreshment
empower disposition
I can dream,
reflect, refresh
come back
where I sit
positive, wiser, alive
child within me
kicks and fights,
in the end
the option is
to face what is
