Somewhere in Tibet Now... by TeaPhotography Somewhere in Tibet Now... by TeaPhotography
:bulletblack: No, this photo was NOT taken in Tibet. That's not what the title is referring to. This is purely a very conceptual piece, based on where I WAS at the time I DID take this photo, and what it currently very much so represents to me in my life... :aww:

Somewhere in Tibet Now

i feel like i've ridden them all-
all the roller coasters there are in this crazy world

and then some.

when i was young, some of them were fun
but other kinds of roller coasters just trapped me
when i should have forever run...

and oftentimes,
i'm on more than one, at once.

how's that even possible?

but it is- to be pulled
that much, in every which way, and place...
and everything sloping downward all at once.

and i thought i'd finally struggled off of one
haggard and worn,
that cold dark desolate [summer] day

only to find it haunting me
in every possible way...

i'm so ready for a mountain in tibet
as far away as i could ever get
a flat-top place where i could sit
and meditate with air that doesn't make me sick...

instead i'll keep going within
to create a haven inside my mind
and breathe in and out.
counting all that IS kind.

it's the best i'll get
to my mountain in tibet.

very beautiful, did you use a colour filter when taking this black and white picture? The sky has come out in all it's glory in it alongside the main object of interest so perfectly.

This is great! I used to love roller coasters but not so much anymore. Your poem, however, is about much more than roller coasters. :clap:
