Giddy: A Moonlit Night

Dancing in the moonlight

giddy as can be

somewhat in a trance

a whole new world to see

 

Rain coming down

sweet to my lips

splashing around in the water

embracing the drips

 

Light from the moon

awareness begin to grow

in harmony with nature

creates a brief shadow

 

In the midst of the wind

an owl begins to hoot

sending out messages

frogs follow suit

 

Rain is gone

sky is clear

stars in the sky

some are near

 

A beautiful night

feeling quite free

grateful to be alive

bending to my knee

 

Thanking GodĀ 

for the blessings of this night

alone in the darkness

everything is alright

Coping with Impossible Situations

Clouds 1

Storms come through

excessive wind and rain

impossible conditions

coming in like a train

 

Some people are good

ready to lend a helping hand

others are evil

taking advantage of the storm’s band

 

Impossible situations

difficult decisions to make

critics abound

praying for God’s grace

 

Finally it happens

a rash of good deeds

showing love and kindness

everyone taking the lead

 

Prayers are answered

hope is spread

food, clothing, and shelter

God is not dead

 

Impossible situations

God made us for these

faith, hope, and love

for these we are lead

 

Impossible situations

healing has begun

restoring communities

one by one

The New Year

snow capped mountain alaska

Frigid cold on the mountain tops

a new year to get to know

sleeping dreams ready to rise

in the the flakes of snow

 

Months pass

the first bud of spring

renewal of life in the air

fledgling birds spread their wings

 

The soul senses change

with each new sun rise

tranquility and peace

experience helps us become wise

 

Reflections of trees

crispness in the air

leaves gently spreading color

birds singing with a flair

 

Winter sleep comes again

feeling like the comfort of a friend

silence and reflection

till another year begins

A Night Time Train Ride

IMG_4954

The night train to New Orleans

chugs along at a slow pace

in a cushy seat

my soul relaxes from the rat race

 

Sounds enter the mind

of music fast and slow

from the ivory keys of a piano

lifting spirits from a low

 

Visits to the cathedral come next

windows filled with saintly images

lighting a candle of hope

sad mood diminishes

 

Sitting in a cafe

listening to tall tales

sipping on coffee and beignets

of exciting city details

 

Street performers

performing magical feats

exciting the crowds

causing many a racing heart beat

 

Now on the way home

drifting into a comfortable sleep

my soul is relaxed

as the night train creeps

Secret Door in the Heart

IMG_4994 (2)

There is a secret door

that leads to my heart

few search to find it

mostly I stay apart

 

Behind the door

are dreams and loving care

it is an exciting place

if one would dare

 

The secret door

is filled with emotion

sometimes like a waterfall

filled with commotion

 

Other timesĀ the secret door is hidden

with things that I only know

good and bad

things to ponder not show

 

The secret door

carries things from long ago

filled with memories of others

love that continues to grow

 

We all have a secret door

that sometimes can be found

the choice is ours whether to open it

when others are around
