An Insect’s Dream

Lying on the ground

a simple insect on its back

hallucinating before death

and becoming a bird’s snack

The enemy came

brutal and thriving

shooting fiery arrows

taking the living

With drive and determination

insect made a bold move

fiercely aiming for the eyes

sight to be removed

Enemy falls

screaming in pain

insect is victorious

now time for the gain

Covered in armor

leaping toward some meat

a handsome reward for victory

a feast to eat

All of the sudden

enemy reappears

with renewed strength

death is near

It is finished

as the spirit begins to rise

now living in limbo

awaiting a new disguise

The veil opens

living again

a new battle emerges

maybe this time the insect wins

Walking in the Rain

Morning walk

rain pouring down

creek is rising

sensations abound

Savoring each droplet

with a flavor of its own

an ode to the season

as the leaves are blown

Creek creates a boundary

rising with the rain

forming water falls and rapids

whistling like a train

Gratifying the senses

making the skin tingle

each drop a renewal

causing eyes to twinkle

Jumping in one last puddle

laughing with delight

rain has stopped

sun now shining bright

The Prison

Artist for photo Z ward, Adelaida

All doors open

the day has come

to release all from the prison

the sentences done

With crimson eyes

having paid a heavy price

walking out the doors

new fate is roll of the dice

In an attempt

to replenish the soul

some prayed to God

a practice of old

Rain falling

some disappeared into the clouds

weak and beaten

wailing loud

Others walked passed the rain

into the sun

finding new life with hope

starting to run

The prison is empty

all released from the chains

now a harsh reminder

of a lifetime of pain

Spirit Painting

Immersed in a painting

taking inspiration from within

in harmony with my spirit

face with a grin

In the abstract

shapes appear

looking for colors

vision is clear

Free from distractions

spirit shows its colors

a matrix appears

sadness is duller

Closer to the heart

music begins to flow

a symphony with movements

crescendo beginning to grow

Matrix is complete

as the movements end

returning to the moment

life now a friend

Happiness flows

as I hang up the art

a symphony of spirit

coming from the heart

Encounter With Souls

Encounters with a soul

what fun it can be

searching the emotions of others

knowing which is free

Some are like a thunderstorm

filled with anger and rage

loud thunder and lightening

getting stronger with age

Others are playful

such as a light summer rain

dancing in the streams

rainbows are the gain

Other soul encounters

are in deep thought

ranging in curious to serious

deciding which idea is caught

Then an internal encounter

with the sun filtering morning rays

to smile or frown while choosing

adventures for the day

Encounters with souls

each with its own light

perceiving the world

choosing its plight

An Upgrade to Life

Things are getting fuzzy

the end is near

reaching for something

there is much fear

Wanting to upgrade

ascend into a new life

leaving all things behind

particularly the strife

Into the paranormal

a dark tunnel appears

flying fast

suddenly everything is clear

The light is bright

entering a new world

a new reality

choices begin to unfurl

A universe to explore

filled with planets and stars

different dimensions

or a trip to mars

Another choice

field with beautiful flowers

calm and serene

cooling rain showers

A new power

to slow down time

live in the moment

each experience a lifetime

This new life

always an adventure

ability to experience it all

without censure

Morning Reflection

Walking along the path

dew gleaming from the leaves

birds are singing

sun filtering through the trees

Sense of obstinacy in the air

as the cool breeze blows

squirrels fighting over acorns

as piles of leaves grow

Water flowing

in the nearby stream

calming my spirit

as if in a dream

Sitting on the porch

a group of deer come by

regal and majestic

taking a moment to say hi

Leaving some of the harvest

small payment to the land

blessed to be a part of nature

in a world so grand

The Old Barn

The storm draws near

as the incisive wind blows

the frenetic storm is explosive

as the legend grows

The old barn

sitting patiently on the plain

surrounded by prairie

filled with grain

The storm circles

lifts the barn from the ground

swirling in the air

heaven bound

Lightening strikes

tempers of the sky flare

a powerful argument

thunder fills the air

The barn swirls

a cow flies out the door

wheat surrounds it

now nothing on the floor

Storm calms

barn now in a new location

strangely intact

having new sensations

Sun shines bright

electricity in the air

barn carries new life

even though bare

Seeds from wheat

sown in rich soil

growing in the wild

easing a farmer’s toil

Barn providing shelter

to cows and stock

intact and strong

steady as a rock

Time passes

a new storm forms

barn has a new destination

life is reborn

An Eclectic Treasure

An aficionado of treasure

seeking it in all of life

I came across a box

filled with delight

Covered with arbitrary items

eclectic in its intricate nature

excited at the possibilities

loving the different color paper

Pulling it away

loading it in a truck

off to the studio

marveling at my luck

On the canvas

careful with the design

a new tapestry arises

abstract in my mind

Finished now

recycled into art

from trash to treasure

tapestry a new start

Spirit Flight

Soaring high above the land

spirit happy with flight

taking in the beauty

in the day and the night

No longer groveling

in hatred and fear

having been released

holding freedom dear

A sunny day

crispness in the air

spirit is light

seeing colors with flair

Sweet music playing

as the landscape sways

wrapped in joy

troubles fade away

Spirit at peace

joining the others

wrapped in love

living with sisters and brothers

Light as a feather

content and at ease

eternity in the light

happy in the swaying breeze
