Please listen to the music as it enhances the viewing experience

Looking into this enclosed glass case
My eyes behold so much.
A bejeweled box of memories,
Remembrances of time and such.

The window sill just beyond the ledge
Shows off blooming life for you.
It breaths in deeply for everyone,
Singing silently in blue.

Scattered note cards lie about
Waiting to be read.
Clinging curtains drape the sky,
Covering time outside my bed.

My home, my room, my hiding place
Where music is always near
It is my refuge from the chaos.
I end my days in here.

When I lay my head on down
And close my eyes to dream,
I drift away, calm winds blow.
I float on down the stream.

A stream of lucid musings
Of thoughts beyond what’s real.
Of imaginings too grand to keep. . .
Treasured excursions aerial. . .

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

    Once again you’ve pulled me in and trapped my vision and my thought.
    Then I clicked on the restlessd link and saw that tan and white pooch read the ’Don’t you love me anymore’ poem for the millionth time and did my uncontrollable blubbering act. My pups all looked at me wondering if anything was wrong. Then I reached out to pet Jackson and the ever jealous Rachel didn’t make her ordinary lunge to get her share of affection. I was stunned that they realized that I was not acting normal and Rachel allowed me to extend myself to Jackson without her normal interruption. They are so aware of their surroundings and my moods. I love them very much. Thank you for continually reminding me of that fact.
    Oh yeah by the way….. Aerial Excursions is another winner for you…

  • Bob, how precious… isn’t it amazing how they sense our feelings & moods? It does my heart well. . . anyone who loves their pups so much is a good guy . . . xoxo
    Thank you for enjoying the piece too :o)
