Blue Skies

The horizon is falling in, I run as fast as I can but still it catches me.

The water is rising I am fighting for my life as I am tossed on this sea.

All my hopes are lashed to a horse that will never tire

A beautiful horse midnight black fast as the wind with eyes like fire.

The roses bloom around me alas they are devoid of colour

The water smells rancid and my skin has taken on a grey pallor.

I am striving to survive but I am sinking in the mire

Just when all seems lost the sun brakes through and sets the world on fire.

The horizon crashes to a halt as sunshine warms the land

The flowers take on rainbow hues as if painted by some divine hand.

I feel as if the ice in my heart has begun to melt

A peace is coming over me , a peace that I have never felt.

        Bowie’s older stuff was good…
        I am a bit young to remember most of it.
        But I caught up..

        Saying that I don’t know if I was too young or just playing fitba lol

        Well I remember Bowie as I am of an age with him ( he being at least 6yrs my senior) I loved his music he was new fresh and weird!! But I have to say that this new version is far superior to the original…. now watch all the Bowie purists will be screaming sacrilege !! 😉 xx

        I think each to their own..
        I liked “All for one” He did with Rod Steward and Bryan Adams. But I do have man love for Bryan Adams..

        Should I call someone about this?
