The Story

Eternity is a spectacular place

filled with constant renewal

sitting at my desk

realizing sometimes it can be cruel

The story began

so long ago

believing I could finish it

refusing to let go

Physical life ended

but my soul refused to leave

so very important

or so I believed

It seemed the universe concurred

as the light never went out

skin rotting with each stroke

going to finish without a doubt

Only the shadow of me remains

my bones attached the paper

words are flowing

finishing now instead of later

On a bus

arriving in Heaven

allowed to see my story

on the news at eleven

Walking into the gates

eyes filled with expression

explaining that the story

is my confession

After hearing laughter

there was an examination

a sigh of relief

that I have been granted dispensation

New life

another story begins

excitement and adventure

knowing the story never ends

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

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

Peace in Writing

Seeking solitude

in the middle of the day

distractions everywhere

taking my peace away

Gathering needed supplies

ignoring all pleas for my time

going to my happy place

with coffee and wine

Time to write

immerse myself in a story

paper and pictures

may use an allegory

Words flow

magical world takes me away

trees and flowers

begging me to stay

Now at peace

warm with a scarf and a sweater

immersed in a fantasy world

spirit is lite as a feather

Lending a Hand

A beautiful day

walking down the street

new bicycle by my side

a stranger to meet

Working at an outside market

beginning a new life

the stranger had been homeless

spirit filled with strife

A benefactor

helped him to buy the place

believing in the future

bringing a smile to his face

Smiling as I approached

leaving the bicycle by his side

a gift of transportation

a most pleasant ride

Tears in his eye

grateful for the gift

riding around

gave my spirit a lift

As time passes

the stranger helps others in need

spreading love and encouragement

an example to heed

City Window Inspiration

Haunted by doubt

holding a notebook of fears

praying for a better day

hoping inspiration is near

A window view

of the concrete city

spying a kenspeckle figure

body language quite witty

Glancing at the flowers

a thought came to mind

writing about the figure

including a creative design

Fear disappears

presentation quickly comes together

heavy spirit lifts

now light as a feather

Success comes

all doubts put away

smiling and grateful

inspiration came to stay

The Mortal Combat

A scorch mark on the table

defined the high stakes

the vampire and the mortal

blood or money to take

Eyes in a hypnotic state

winner take all

hands tightly clasp

who will take the fall

A cautionary tale

to anyone willing to take a risk

strength of the mind and body

breathing is brisk

Swaying arms to the left

and then to the right

crowd is tense

at the sight

A moment of silence

vampire is stunned

mortal slams his hand

grabs the money and runs

Grabbing the bottle of red devil

gulping it down

vampire turns into a bat

chasing the mortal through town

Night becomes day

as the sun begins to rise

mortal takes his winnings

and the vampire cries

The Dimension Traveler

In the splendor of time

dimensions are split

creating an illusion

using a sewing kit

Chilling in simplicity

causing the truck to go uphill

the sewing machine emits a signal

giving the young man a thrill

Looking elegant

in his suit

graduating in parallel time

a willing recruit

In this episode

chaos is the goal

causing death and destruction

soul is quite cold

Each day he lives

in another dimension

changing histories

a mind invention

Sentenced to eternity

living in deception

soul is lost

depending on the perception

Darkness and light

chosen each day

the young man is happy

choosing the way

The Doors of Life

Standing in the field

staring at the doors

which one to walk through

to be rich or poor

Opening a door

to instant wealth

a luxurious lifestyle

filled with self

Luxury turns to greed

beauty loses its appeal

spirit becomes dark

longing for something real

Opening another door

filled with poverty

pain and suffering

living somberly

Life is difficult

never finding a friend

people turn on each other

survival till the end

There is a third door

combination of the two

quirky choices

slightly open with a view

Looking around

people helping each other

through times good and bad

everyone is a sister or brother

Poverty disappears

there is an abundance for all

gratitude for life

allowing no one to fall

Happiness lies

through love and grace

decisively walking through this door

a life to embrace

What to Wear

Daylight shines through the house

getting ready the day

should I be obvious about my mood

or look another way

Choosing which

face to wear

should I spout off hate

causing others to despair

I could choose melancholy

spreading tears making others blue

we could have a pity party

pain is nothing new

The choice for today

is to wear a smiling face

happiness will be spread

kindness and grace

Each day is a choice

my thoughts and outlook

the journey through life

writing my own book

Influencing others

power in a question

changing the world

with a facial expression
