Open Spaces

I am a little bleary eyed today - had a fantastic but late night with my writing group last night....subject matter this week was "Open Spaces".

I feel it all
closing in around me
sharp painfully bright
flickering lights
loud deep
resounding noises
my mind needs to get
away
for a break
from this
urban concreted jungle
steps are taken
at the threshold
I walk again
that well worn
path
At that turn
I go left
haven't tried that before
the noise
those loud piercing
shrills
laughter
and manufactured
cacophany of full time
life's party cheer
still feels so close
around a corner
and past a little shrub
it's there my feet find
this wonderful scene
my mind has at last
perchance
stumbled upon
the most magnificent,
the most amazing
of open spaces.
