defining boundaries


Photo Credits: Rick Mobbs











space

aura surrounding me
unseen but built like a wall
intangibility of it pervades you too
you can break bricks
however
how does one demolish something
which is invisible
you can't define the boundaries
yet one can let the other break it
allowing to enter it with own free will

"can any one predict where
chance might lead this encounter?"

I love that painting and your words have me pondering...

I'm reading science into this and I'd love to know the answer to that question. HUG

This poem seems to lead my thoughts to physical and nonphysical things. "How does one demolish something
which is invisible"? Maybe with just a whisper?

those that dare, win.
there are no such things as walls to protect you. Someone somewhere will wall through them and you wont even know it.....

chnace might lead this encounter?

It already has.

invisible boundaries are easily breached with but a slip of the tongue --- i enjoyed this piece - it can go so many different ways --- it's a chance encounter!!!

Very well written (as always). What a powerful way to end it, too.

Glad I stopped by!

I like this - barriers at once both impenetrable and fragile.

thanks for this information, I just had to try out your directions. It is so frustrating sometimes, being linked to ones profile page and NOT knowing which blog of theirs to choose. thanks!

sometimes that which we can't see can be destroyed more easily than tangible things. interesting and thought-provoking!
