A Spring Break

Firtln’ along

marching to my own beat

cool water feels good

fish nipping my feet

Sun sparkles

creating diamonds and rainbows

blooms reflecting on the water

body begins to glow

Approaching the rapids

jumping on the rocks

slipping into the water

laughing as I drop

Time for a nap

hammock between the trees

birds singing a lullaby

sweet dreams put me at ease

Sweet spring day

filled with wonder

beauty surrounds me

enjoying this brief slumber

A New Year’s Stroll

Walking along the path

on a cold winter day

trees filled with ice

sun lighting the way

A cardinal sings

a happy song

welcoming me

as I walk along

Spotting the proper branch

I hang some sunflower seed

an act of kindness

food for creatures in need

Ice crystals sparkle

in the morning sun

prisms filled with color

beautiful webs are spun

Connecting with nature

experiencing a new world

the year is young

peace and harmony unfurl

Smile on my face

calmness in the air

a year of intentional living

life with flair

Meditation over

happiness in my heart

spirit is warmed

by nature’s art

Privilege of a New Day

The sun shines

on my face

grateful for this day

filled with grace

The privilege of awakening

life to experience

adventure for the taking

fun and mysterious

Walking through trials

choosing faith instead of fear

bathed in love

God is near

Walking further

grateful for the trees

observing all the wonder

colors in the leaves

Meditation over

filled with gratitude

going through the day

with a positive attitude

Autumn in the Air

Excitement in the air

as the pumpkin is lit

eyes begin to sparkle

emotions to emit

Trees dropping leaves

red, brown, and yellow

surrounding the pumpkin

a popular fellow

Walking down the streets

fun and scary costumes

collecting candy

such sweet fumes

Bright sparklers

illuminate the night

filled with colors

a festive sight

Autumn continues

tables filled with food

a bountiful harvest

so much to be viewed

Meditation over

so grateful to be alive

sitting by the fire

continuing to thrive

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

The Filtering Doorway

Walking through the forest

contemplating heaven

sun filtering through the clouds

a beautiful intercession

A doorway appears

reflections in the light

past, present, and future

all within sight

In this perfect moment

love radiates from within

sending hugs and kisses

through the wind

The golden leaves fade

door is closed

time is reset

leaves decompose

Seasons change

fall to winter

soul rejoices

in nature’s splendor

Flowing Meditation of Grace

Water flows

cleansing my soul

the blessings of the day

shimmer in the water hole

Encouragement from a new friend

over a cup of tea

answer to a prayer

sitting with me

Feeding the hungry

with a hot meal

listening to a story

life is quite real

Sitting with the sick

holding their hand

healing of the spirit

grace in command

Admiring the beauty

breathing clean air

gift of nature

reflections everywhere

Walking home

sparkles in my eyes

sun is shining

puffy clouds in the sky

Meditation over

spirit filled with glee

listening to the falls

grateful to be free

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

Halloween in the Forest

Euphoria in the night

regurgitating tales of old

friends gather

in the autumn cold

Hot apple cider with rum

a homemade drink

gnarl in a tree as a tray

toasting as the mugs clink

Lighting sparklers

dancing in the night

a squirrel joining in the fun

causing a fright

Gathered in blankets

ghost stories are told

of devils appearing

with promises of gold

The moon is full

as the revelers make their way home

filled with joy

allowing imaginations to roam
