the shadows form a shade around me

I kind of let go of my mind and the following came into being. Sometimes there is some sort of sense in the seemingly nonsense. I had not done this for a while now. What is it, you and I have to decipher. However for now, read on for whatever it is worth......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

lotus-posed I sit on a chair
the cool harmattan breeze that comes through every opening in the house flirts with me
I wish to know its ploy in its wake
the sun is setting in the sky and the shadows form a shade around me
I am now like melting snow, tilting towards the puddle of memory
the sun fades away giving in to darkness by the time I close my eyes
I crash to the ground with a loud bang, and a cloud of dust rises in my stead
all night I roll from one end of the floor to the other
in the dawning light I run out to nowhere
stunning exit, wouldn't you call it?

Words really do seem to just flow out of you as naturally as rain drops on a flower

This really flows well and I like when you let your mind wander. It shows some truly beautiful writing when you do.

This is beautiful...and hardly nonsense. I love it. You and I seem to be digging the lotus analogies lately....

I like it. I think the free writing makes it smooth to read. The fact that not each sentence is planner and arranged to mean something makes the writing very fresh and fun to follow.
Happy 3WW!
I played too

I love the sense of connection, or maybe it's identification, with the environment, with weather, with being there.
