Fashion of the Soul

In a snowstorm

I got a glimpse of my soul

something speaking to me

a challenge of old

Mental traffic

in my brain

every aspect of my style

difficult to explain

My soul is colorful

expressed in my dress

hair of many colors

crumpled clothes in distress

Shoes with different heels

sometime mixed colors

a muddled look

strange to others

Even with a frown

acceptance of my fashion

everyone is unique

always having compassion

A Timeless Place

Through the corridor of time

there is not much change

a proverbial paradise

beautiful mountain range

Calming wind

an excuse not to rush

dew on my face

causing cheeks to blush

Walking along the river

a silent scene

leaves rustling

the trees are green

A story being told

the reflections go deep

time passes slowly

as the river flows into a creek

Time passes

I am joined with the land

happy and content

a wonderful life plan

The Dive

Diving deeper into the cave

with great finesse

science helps the diver

explore without stress

Going down deeper

leaving the light

brightly colored fish

shine in the night

Unique structures

candy to the eye

a universe in water

no one can deny

Salt water

meets the fresh

water swirling around

continuing to refresh

Returning now

going from ocean to the land

light engulfing the diver

feeling grand

Swinging in the Sunset

Swinging in the trees

as the wind blows through my hair

my warty skin exposed

to the salt mist air

Worshipping God

basking in His unending love

my spirit is lifted

a gift from above

My body is frail

spirit is strong

swinging without worry

the wind emits a song

Beautiful colors

in the summer sunset

silhouetted figure

spirit is at rest

Carefree

in this paradise

knowing God is with me

never out sight

Life on Earth Day

The waters and land separated

life entered the land and seas

each with a purpose

there were no guarantees

Reflections of beauty

mirrored in a lake

a paradise unspoiled

promises to undertake

Caring for the land

enough resources for all

the spring of creation

before the great fall

Dust and pollution

greed across the land

wars spilling blood

destroying what was grand

Hope arises

each creature has a choice

to take small actions

to have a voice

The end is near

the Earth cries out

you are made from me

live in paradise or die without

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

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

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

A Habit of Play

The operation began

when he was a older puppy

having become complacent

now quite chubby

To start a new habit

we began to walk everyday

bouncing in the waves

exercising while he played

A small treat

a reward for each pound lost

the toys began to gather

totally worth the cost

Now living with joy each day

the operation is a success

both of us are thinner

enjoying the process
