Friday Fictioneers — Up on the Roof

6DD04A81-3380-456D-BA4A-A0CECB3F80E6Lately things have really been getting me down and sometimes it’s almost too much for me to take. But I found a place at the top of the stairs where I can go and let all of my cares drift off into space as I watch the stars put on a show for free. It’s beautiful and peaceful as can be and nothing bothers me when I’m there. It’s like a paradise, one that is trouble proof. And if this world starts getting you down, too, won’t you join me? There’s room enough for two up on the roof.

Inspired by the photo from Roger Bultot and by the words of Carole King and Gerry Goffin, this post is for the Friday Fictioneers prompt from Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

    Love this and the song. Good attitude. I feel the same, it gets to be too much and I feel helpless to change any of it. Maybe the stars have a solution!

    It’s just the place to be, in the sunshine, fresh air, standing in the sky.

    Same title, same song as mine, but a different story twist. You’re quite poetic 🙂

      The roof is large enough for two while standing six feet apart! 😉
