my room

My room, photo by RK House.

I feel safe and secure, alone in my room
listening to my power pop music play
relaxing and typing on my laptop
daydreaming in private is the only way

I think I should turn on my lava lamp
but I’m too lazy to get up out of my chair
so, I’ll watch my globe change color
close my eyes and let my mind roam elsewhere

periodic waves of the universe are lapping
on the beaches surrounding my private island
as I leave my body and go for a galactic swim
with my spirit skinny dipping as my thoughts expand

finally returning to the music playing in my room
where I fall asleep for a little afternoon nap
it’s too bad I don’t get the benefits of exercise
sitting in my room taking my mental interstellar lap

    Am hoping for such ride myself, but first I have got to let my room turn blue. Great piece RK.

      LOL, yes. The color changing led globe is an important part of the mood. 🙂 Glad you liked the piece.

      That stanza is my favorite. I was tempted to take just that stanza and try to expand that into a separate poem, but the rest of the poem served my purpose of having something to go with my photo. And, besides, I was in a hurry to get toweled off and back into some dry clothes. 🙂

      Thanks. I don’t spend enough time just listening and enjoying my music collection these days.

    ahaha, your spirit soars and travels far and away… 🙂 like the skinny dipping touch…

      Yes, that’s me, off far and away skinny dipping in the oceans of methane on Triton. Not good to try to do that kind of stuff physically, of course. 🙂

    Mental exercise is good for you.

      I don’t know Meme. You don’t seem to exercise your mind that much. 😦

      Maybe that is the good part………for others that is. 🙂

    • #11 by Ronald Kirk House on January 29, 2013 - 3:09 am

      LOL. I obviously don’t get enough exercise, mental or otherwise. 🙂

      skinny dipping in methane n- what the… 😉 you take care, sir RK. is it still wintery over there? 🙂

      • #13 by Ronald Kirk House on January 31, 2013 - 5:00 am

        LOL. It doesn’t usually get very cold where I live in California, so it doesn’t feel wintery.

      Thanks! I like photography and wish I had spent the time to learn what I was doing. 🙂

    Enjoyed your room! 🙂

      Thank you! I probably should have cleaned up before the picture, but that is how my room usually looks. Just a little messy. 🙂
