Awakening the Soul

In the forest there is a great awakening

on this typical day

creatures begin to wander

making their way

Across the span of time

in the immutable space

cycles are in rhythm

in perfect pace

Walking along the edge

water cascading down the stream

into a blue valley

like a painting in a dream

Mist hitting my face

a rainbow within view

being part of the river

my soul is renewed

In the moment

combination of space, time, and thought

all in harmony

have hit the jackpot

Separating again

back into the present reality

ready to face the day

my soul has been set free

Descent into Madness

In the cool mist of the morning

there came such a day

a cattywampus creature

came to stay

An encephalopathy ailed him

captured his brain

biting at everything in sight

attracted to the colors in the rain

Calmer now

reaching the end of the rainbow

big eyes staring

not knowing where to go

Night falls

calmness in the dark

the creature rests

until there is a light spark

Diving deep

wanting the madness to end

death finally envelops him

a welcome friend

In another place

no longer overwhelmed

the creature is at peace

in the Heavenly realm

Staring into a Vision

Staring out the window

of his hobbit home

the man shivers

knowing he is not alone

There is a sizzle

a pleasant fragrant smell

something unusual

not knowing it well

A past experience is relived

being taken into a UFO

strange beings cooking

begging him not to go

Up into the structure

a rope hanging from a tree

the beings begin grabbing him

he falls to his knees

The fragrant aroma continues

intense light from the sun

blinded temporarily

wanting to run

A small being speaks

please come in

the fragrant aroma in the air

causing his head to spin

Memories flow

trying to piece the puzzle

then suddenly the fragrant aroma disappears

there is no more struggle

Quiet and serene

the lights and voice fade

sight returning to normal

now in the shade

Awakening now

was it just a dream

staring out the window

his eyes now gleam

A Jelly Fish Trance

Floating in the ocean

in an abandoned trance

freely moving together

a unique focused dance

Enemies surrounding

ready for meal

the jelly fish executing a plan

to foil the deal

Predators alert

not able to move

the magic of the trance

jelly fish continuing the groove

One after another

predators disappear

beauty in the movements

protection appears

One jelly fish prevaricates

in an ocean language

the danger has passed

the predators have been vanquished

A Plastic Cup Vision

Digesting information

that was hard to hear

the man looked around

with an intense loneliness to bear

Capitulating

to a shorter life

the disease was taking over

causing him strife

A chance reflection

caused him to look up

as if a miracle had happened

a vision through a plastic cup

Balloons in the sky

floating freely

no pain or loneliness

life looked easy

His spirit soared

realizing this was not the end

in a brief time

he would be with friends

A group of balloons

gathered closer together

colorful and beautiful

light as a feather

The old man smiled

knew when his days were done

love and family would be there

forever they would run

The Bee

Diving into paradise

a high register sound pulls the bee in

lips of the flower

farctate pollen within

The bee buzzes

performing a dance

ecstasy in paradise

now in a trance

Leaving now

returning to the hive

giving a portion to the queen

making honey to survive

Exhausted now

coming down from the high

job well done

time to die

The bee’s life

an important part of pollination

feeding the world

beautiful part of creation

Minimal Life Dream

Running along the creek

away from the flagrant city life

sun streaming through the trees

country comfort opposed to strife

A talent for simple living

running barefoot in the trees

mist in the air

a cool summer breeze

Under the waterfall

sits a fishing hole

fresh food for lunch

caught with a cane pole

A simple cabin

sits by the stream

lying in a hammock

a pleasant afternoon dream

Birds and crickets sing

on a cool night

happy in the minimalism

of a life in the fire light

A Peaceful Dream

The insects swarmed

in the middle of the night

leaving the establishment

an impromptu flight

In the midst

each began to glow

filled with life

some flew low

Beautiful colors

reflecting in a stream

creating a lighted path

following a dream

The cicadas sing

a special song

enlightening my spirit

I sing along

Calmness in the night

close to daybreak

serenity in my spirit

a desire to create

Morning comes

insects disappear in the wind

resting now

the dream ends

Life Choices

Leaving the island

hoping never to return

looking through rose colored glass

so much to learn

The sun is setting

on this time in my life

taking my faithful dog

fascinated with the wildlife

Across the mountains

accessible by the sea

the city awaits promising a

hectic lifestyle with glee

Excitement abound

no time to rest

so much to experience

life filled with zest

Years pass

no time to catch up

spirit is weary

tired if being grownup

On a ship again

returning home

the sun is rising

longing to be alone

Home now

favorite dog by my side

fishing near an island

enjoying being alive

A New Universe

A new universe

was jettisoned into the sky

a memorable event

confident that life would multiply

Beautiful colors

light in the dark

oceans teeming with life

humans emerging with a spark

In the vastness

life continued to expand

stars surrounding the planets

waves sounding like a band

Interconnected

the universe lives in harmony

all needs are met

for all eternity
