How to pop a cloud

"Popping the Clouds" is a blog created to dream. Imagine a world where dreams could come true, and clouds could be popped like balloons. Tell a story, write a poem, share a recipe, talk about your ideas. Mention your latest book, a song, a sentence, a dream... Feel free to fly and reach the "popping clouds".

Do not disturb

What a life ... ;)

Irís is my cat. She loves to wander around the house, but there are some days that she feels so tired that she really needs to take a nap from time to time. Here's a snapshot taken while she was having some inner thoughts ... She needed to think about life, and didn't want to be disturbed, so I didn't.

Through a glass

Sometimes we have the need to look to ourselves through a glass. A mirror that projects what we don't want to see. Just a glimpse from what we keep on hiding to the world, and most of the times even to ourselves. Imagine if we could reach the image and keep it forever. To be able to look at it when we are feeling down and grab the energy that rises through the mirror when we look at it? Could life be perfect on that moment? ...
Sometimes ... we feel strangers to ourselves. Always trying to feel special and needed when there is no one around to give us the strenght to move on. That's a glass. The projection of our inner needs and feelings. Just a material from this world that was defined to show us that we really can cope with breakdowns.
It's just a simple glass.
Sometimes, we tend to forget what we really are, and we prefer to live according the image. A simple image through a glass which is just a mirror from our inner world.

Around the house

 One of my favourites : an old appliance for my juices. Still working. 

 Cactus : because sometimes I forget to water the plants, and these ones don't complaint about it ;)

One of my favourite chairs. Just because it's a one piece furniture.

Should I

Should I keep on walking? ...

Should I embrace the rocks along the way?
The final stones and pebbles that appear, now and then, just to stop life from moving around.
The final step, the end of misery as it is seen.

Should I stare?
Should I keep on breathing?
To inhale the deep dark clouds surrounded by pain and suffer.
The gasps of memories gone, that keep on coming back from time to time just to be remembered.

Should I cry for help?
Should I raise my hands and beg for mercy?
Way high.
Touch the sky and smell the white clouds full of hope.

Should I? ...

Try to be someone else so the tears can go away.
Pretend another world, another body in order to escape.
Try not to be the same soul ... in vain ... just to fly around and disappear ... maybe some day ...

Should I keep on dreaming?
Should I believe it is going to be better? ...

Should I? ...
And I just keep on walking ...

Popping the ballons

Popping the ballons .....

This was how my house looked like in order to celebrate my last birthday ...

A little bit of colour around the white walls ...

I am glad that the other parts of the house were spared ... hard to clean the ballons ... But I liked the effect.
