Ascension

Can you escape
the ghetto of your soul?
Believe in blue,
grab hold a wisp of cloud
and soar.

  8. Great take on the image. In cities it’s always important to occasionally look up.

    Short, succinct and hopeful. That view looks as if it could almost suck one up and out, doesn’t it?

    nice minimalist form…clouds themselves are rather magical transforming the sky into a play ground of imagery…perhaps the dragon i saw early will fly down and let me ride…smiles. ghetto of the soul…nice…

    It is breathtaking. I have lived on a mountain…but skyscrapers are so different.
    This photo is powerful.
    It remind me of a visit to NYC. I wouldn’t let go of my mother’s hand.

    SOAR!
