A Dream Life

Relaxing in the morning air

after the night’s rain

skittering my pole

quietness to maintain

My future

up in the air

how to make a living

and have some to spare

In this beautiful place

idioms filled my mind

what to tell others

whose life views are blind

Living off the land

exciting to me

coming from the dust

living carefree

Catching a fish

taking it back to the hut

cooking it on the fire

flavoring with walnuts

Living a simple life

happy as can be

no explanation needed

because I am free

A Serene Escape

Within the matrix of the city

trying to break free

constant distractions

trying to sedate me

Fleeing the web

an expatriate writer in the making

listening to the stream

homemade bread is baking

A new life

peace in the breeze

wildlife surrounds me

a life of ease

Able to breathe

the words begin to flow

sun streaming through the trees

there is a shadowy glow

Content at last

away from the rat race

spirit is filled with joy

living at a slower pace

Sand Storm

The whirlwind hit me

drawing me into the hole

gateway to another world

beyond my control

Life is disposable

in this strange place

sand swirling around

beating on my face

Seeking shelter

entering into a brick hut

there is peace

in a universe gone nuts

Comfortable

loved and content

an oasis

filled with pleasant scents

Another storm comes

sending me back through the gate

into the this world

it’s getting late

The sun is setting

reflecting beautiful colors in the sand

chaos has turned into peace

in this land

The Consuming Creature

Swirled into the unknown

frantically grasping for stability

venation is radiating

beyond its ability

Quickly dropping

symbolic to life

the creature is falling

into chaos and strife

Landing on a strange world

welcomed by a leaf

the creature devours it

like a thief

Not giving thought

to others that come behind

leaving nothing

putting others in a bind

Swirled again

this time into the pits of hell

following a creature like it

who knew him all too well

Another creature falls

choosing a different way

taking only what is needed

leaving some for a future day

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

The Meadow Picnic

The spartan accommodations

were worth the view

a meadow picnic

blooms are brand new

Opening a bottle of wine

vintage with class

telling mendacious stories

rolling in the grass

Small animals walk by

fascinated at the site

some coming close

hoping for a bite

Laughter continues

running barefoot in the grass

acting like children

allowing the day to pass

Candle burning

providing our light

time to go home

settle in for the night

Rain begins to fall

weaving a lullaby

having a pleasant dream

happy this nigh

A Morning Stroll

Searching for perfection

on this beautiful day

a storm washed out a gulley

pushing rocks out of the way

Water swirling

causing a waterfall to blossom

I saw it immediately

the beauty is awesome

The perfect stone appears

now clean and pure

colors reflecting from it

magical I am sure

Picking it up

rubbing it on my face

cleansing my skin

taking away all waste

Slipping from my hand

the stone returns to the river

splashing cool water

causing me to shiver

The waterfall disappears

as the water becomes quite still

the end of an adventure

that was a thrill

Walking into the woods

heading back home

enjoying the magic

the freedom to roam

A Morning Kayak Ride

Eating my breakfast

with great haste

the sun is rising

there is no time to waste

Paddling in my kayak

making ripples in the river

a beautiful sunrise

a breeze making me quiver

The forest came to life

as the birds began to sing

blue herons in the river

each doing their own thing

The deer came out

the family came to drink

disturbing a skunk

the air began to stink

Going through the rapids

water on my face

capricious thoughts came to me

as my heart raced

Kayak comes to shore

a lazy summer day

filled with gratitude

as I go my way

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

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
