Happiness in the Mist

In the midst of deep forest

all worries are castoff

walking along the path

encountering a trough

Together we drink

the wildlife and me

cool water

enjoying harmony

Our homes are modular

unique to each of us

providing comfort

without a fuss

Silence is broken

as birds and crickets sing

sun burns off the midst

stream begins to gleam

A beautiful home

grateful to share

serenity around me

surrounded by those who care

Zenith of Beauty

Its thirst satisfied

reaching the zenith of beauty

the spring blooms shine

the smell is quite fruity

The humming birds visit

leaving a plume behind

bees do a dance

all visitors being kind

The sun nourishes

the blooms on the trees

soon small fruit appears

growing in the summer breeze

Spring and summer pass

harvest ready in the fall

fruit is large and plentiful

there is enough for all

The fruit is gone

leaves coat the ground

cold winds are coming

spreading color around

Winter comes

the forest is asleep

until the spring comes

and the blooms again peek

A Bicycle Ride in the Sky

Fish in my backpack

my spirit chipper in the cool air

riding in the clouds

without a care

Investing in the future

doing my favorite thing

so alive and happy

bicycling while I sing

With roads leading to Heaven

a city in the sky

atop the mountain is a cabin

where family gathers for a fish fry

Getting closer

the clouds begin to break

a forest with beautiful flowers

a calm serene lake

Home now

in the Garden of Eden

unconditional love surrounding me

complete tranquility and freedom

The Buoyant Window

Looking through

a window of time

motherhood on the horizon

wind causing shells to chime

Buoyant feelings

looking through the glass

arborial palms bearing fruit

sun filtered as clouds pass

New life

traveling through the waters

beauty and wisdom

gifts to our sons and daughters

Time passes slowly

tranquility in the ocean breeze

living in this moment

spirit is at ease

Generations pass

love shared by each one

connected through the window of time

no one is alone

The Expedition

The expedition began

with the teasing rays of the sun

challenging my dexterity

on the river run

Gently paddling

the cool mist on my face

almost to the falls

my heart starts to race

The filtering sun

casts light in the strait

excitement builds

what will be my fate

Over the falls

an adrenaline rush

flying through the falls

a continuous water gush

Paddling through the rapids

each movement a thrill

only lasting a few minutes

before reaching the bottom of the hill

In the heat of the moment

a victorious shout

not paying attention

barely dodging a wipe out

Floating down the river

now at ease

observing life around me

enjoying the gentle breeze

Smaller rapids ahead

the end of the day

easily passing through them

pulling into the bay

Sun setting

the moon begins to rise

the crickets lull me to sleep

as I close my eyes

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 Uninvited Guest

A beautiful spring day

enjoying a meal

an unexpected visitor

made an appeal

Abhor the site

the mosquito took a seat

feeling quite confident

an abstemious creature to defeat

The mosquito’s wings fluttered

as he landed on my skin

I randomly swatted my hand

on a whim

Leaving a welt

now buzzing near my ear

shaking my head and swatting

falling on my rear

Bug spray gathered

after a few choice words

spraying the patio

vision now blurred

Smoke clears

the mosquito is gone

plotting a new plan

a solution to count on

Late afternoon

on another day

tiki torches out

uncomfortable for the mosquito to play

Enjoying dinner

in the yard there is a song

mosquito staying in the yard

where he belongs

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
