State of Bliss

Aloha to all my friends on MPS.

Unfortunately I am overloaded with work right now and will not be able to comment much. Will try to stop by every so often, maybe even post something (like today), but there is not much time right now for writing either. Once I am caught up I intend to become more active again. Just wanted to let you know so you don't get the idea I might not like your writing anymore! :-) I will still read as much as I can, but comment less.



Words silently hovering

Above unfinished sentences

Just out of reach

Ephemeral thoughts

Instantly gone

Never to be remembered

Lingering feelings

Barely recognizable

Inside the forest of moods

A hint of love

Without substantiation

Hiding forlornly

In dark basement corners

The empty mind

Floating serenely

Within nothingness

Conceived of nothingness

Faintly aware of

Perceived memories

Fading into oblivion

Drops joining the sea

Exquisite peace

Lovingly embraced

Utter surrender

Into a state of bliss

    Very good write Fred, may that bliss last forever.

  • Michael Edwards

    I'll miss all your kind support but I realise you are still there turning out the odd brilliant write as you have done here. Hope you are able to return 'full time' soon.

  • orchidee

    A fine write Fred.

  • Fay Slimm.

    Will be missing you and your wonderful writing Fred - - meanwhile not to work too too hard - and come back soon. x

  • Fay Slimm.

    An ephemeral feel right through these lyrical words Fred - a soothing read on memory's ability to render its own state of bliss.

  • Lorna

    Bye for now Fred - make notes of all your ephemeral thoughts so you can fill us in when you get back!

  • Laura

    Another gem as only
    you can write! Will miss
    your sense of humor!
    Don’t take too long to
    come back! Be safe!


  • Maxine Smith

    Lovely therapeutic write, we all seek that blissful freedom

  • Bibbeck

    You never fail to stun.
    Will be missed.
    I understand though as work and moving home has consumed me for some past months. Hoping I won't have been forgotten.
    Await your return.
