2nd line -Completely out (of) 'the blue('). Is that what you meant?

Ah! I see. I've invented a new use of the apostrophe! The world isn't ready for that. Will remove it from all my copies. Thanks lads. Done. (It read: "Completely out ' the blue." (with space missing!) when Davide and Leslie commented).

"Towering mounts" here is scifi.

I agree with myself, though there is more to this story.

Our earth can also be our paradise.

That's my very point Davide. I am constantly guilty of seeking an escape to some alternate universe containing paradise. We overlook the paradise that is right HERE.

Wordless? I see words. At work (as a careers adviser) I asked endless questions.

Enough with seeking something "beyond".


One day I found myself in Paradise,
Completely out the blue.
I don’t recall a warning:
From nothing I emerged. 4 comments


Into a new dimensional realm
I sprang:
Into a world so lost in vastness
Of space and time. 1 comment


Somewhere out there
In the outer reaches
Of an obscure universe. 1 comment


A planet full of life,
Of sweeping oceans
And towering mounts. 1 comment


A place so beautiful,
Beyond compare. 3 comments


All peopled by
Multi-coloured multitudes
Of sentient beings.


To where had I escaped?
You may well ask.
The loveliest world of all,
Of course.
A heaven of the heavens:
Our planet Earth. 4 comments
