Lift it. Lift it way up.


My mood suddenly lifted.
The day was crisp and bright,
the atmosphere quivering with life,
like the translucent strands of a rare aquatic species
with long, flowing tentacles,
lappets flowing vertically from a jellyfish’s bell.
Would that human energy could materialize in such a way.
I imagine such strands waving horizontally
from the edges of my black coat.

~ Patti Smith, M Train

  2. jelly fish is not a wish
    it is certainly not my dish 🙂
    I like the flow
    also the glow
    but more
    not lift ..but swim
    under the waves
    filled with water
    floats away !
