Meditation of the Night

Rising each night

the moon lights up the sky

wonders and mysteries

candy for the eye

Surrounded by stars

beauty and peace

gifts from above

blessings increase

Sitting by a fire

watching the sky move

stars are sparkling

dancing to the groove

Planets appear

shining bright

wonder what is on them

following the light

A comet passes

tails with debris

how fun to ride it

exciting thought to me

Drifting off

cool breeze on my face

blanket to keep warm

cricket songs to embrace

Meditation over

feeling safe and secure

surrounded by serenity

my spirit is pure

Nightmare of Death

Nightmares haunted me

while in a deep sleep

fighting evil creatures

the hole is deep

Monopolizing the nightmare

is the fear of dying

is there life beyond

a purpose for trying

Grabbing a compass

which direction to run

morning is coming

east to the rising sun

A wraith appears

think it’s mother

pointing to the sky

beginning to smother

Grasping for breath

one final attempt

slaying all fears

my life is exempt

Becoming one with the light

surrounded by love

friends and family join with me

grace from above

Living in harmony

this world has no fear

peace and contentment

not one tear

Sun is rising

nightmares are gone

free to live

grateful for the dawn

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

Pocket of Dreams

In the midst of the cobweb

there is a pocket of dreams

interpretations of life

trapped in a screen

Thoughts holding a conference

determining what holds power

discussions begin

at the midnight hour

Emotions assist thoughts

as the leaves glide in the wind

colors represent feelings

the veil is thinned

Red representing rage

at things that are unfair

feeling trapped

caught in a snare

Others leaves without color

representing death

is it all over

at the last breath

Yellow leaves

representing life

hope and love

defeating the strife

Morning comes

dew on each thread

sparkling diamonds

there is nothing to dread

Joyful thoughts

rule this day

feeling love

protected by a sun ray

Cobbler from Halloween Past

Traveling through time

neurons intact

a Halloween long ago

excited to go back

Looking around

in search of a recipe

the cobbler is on the table

aroma is heavenly

Music playing

dancing to the tunes

greeting friends from long ago

reminiscing in each room

Now in the kitchen

filled with remnants of the past

love the oven

made when appliances would last

Cookbook open

recipe printed in bold

easy to read

filled with ingredients of old

Memorizing it all

time to return to the present

citing an incantation

the moon is crescent

In my kitchen

the cobbler sits on the table

warm and comforting

now a Halloween staple

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

Vestige of my Soul

The vestige of my soul

is hidden within a mask

showing joy or sorrow

is too much to ask

Living in the world

unknown to others

blending in without knowing

who are my brothers

Always being watched

freedom is gone

trapped in a matrix

feeling like a pawn

Making a bold choice

to live in the light

show myself

soul getting bright

Reaching out

giving a helping hand

comforting others

across the land

Meditation over

in a beautiful place

blessings are abound

gifts of grace

An Organ Journey

The scene is grisly

blood where the corpse lays

yet a certain beauty appears

as the light begins to play

On this cold night

with snow on the ground

the wind is eerie

making a whistling sound

The corpse is

placed on the table

the heart is removed

and given a label

Before being stored

the heart gives a beat

flying through the air

down the street

Through the sky

feeling the need

there is a calling

answering with great speed

On another table

a dead heart is removed

the beating heart placed

dancing to the groove

Death in one place

loved ones filled with grief

another place has life

prayers of relief

A spooky beauty to it all

we are all related

connected in life and death

love is inflated

The Adventurous Ghost

Out of the volcanic fissure

the ghost arose

searching for conversation

everywhere it goes

Matching opponents

in lengthy debates

subjects range from politics

to what was just ate

Coming across a silent one

deep in thought

ghost is mesmorized

and spoke naught

A smile on his face

as the meditation ended

looking at the ghost

he felt splendid

Asking the ghost

about the spirt world

it is happy or sad

content or in a twirl

The ghost replied

it can be any

filled with want

or a land of plenty

Fire and ice

twist and turns

much like life

what is yearned

Adventure continues

as the ghost floats away

exploring this realm

each day

Life of a Halloween Frog

Halloween night

dressed in a costume

stole some candy

hitting my friend with a broom

With intense emotions

he cast a spell

wishing me to be a frog

in the soil to dwell

I gave a bloodcurdling scream

as the spell came to fruition

everything was gone

except my intuition

Dirty and covered in mud

eating a fly

jumping around

feeling quite spry

Along comes a dog

taking me in his mouth

struggling to be free

afraid this going south

Let go

thrown under a fence

trying to breathe

the air is dense

Finding my friend

mother said to change me back

croaking an apology

using great tact

At home

filled with relief

gave all candy to my friend

small price to stand on two feet
