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

Passionate Storm

In the storm there is a melody

encapsulating my heart

consecutively woven

a brilliant piece of art

Raging feelings

loneliness with each lightening strike

fighting for suvival

with all my might

Why can’t I see you

or feel your presence

voice as loud as thunder

you are not a rememberance

Becoming part of the rain

flying in the wind

dropping into the ocean

yearning to send

Living each moment

feeling the pain

searching for you

hoping to gain

Reassurance comes

in the form of a rainbow

getting closer

time is slow

Meditation over

never alone

you are always with me

my spirit has grown

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

The Night Divide

In the night sky

there is a great divide

growing larger each moment

no where to hide

Filled with evil

murder and greed

some automatically drawn

feeling a great need

Light failing to contain it

feeding on power

when will it end

no one knows the hour

Poverty and disease

failure to help our fellow man

screams of pain

souls wiped up with a bedpan

Fire and pride

there is much smoke

some try to fight it

others begin to choke

The divide comes

in for the win

when an act of kindness comes

causing it to thin

Small acts of love

increases the light

the divide closes

defeated this night
