Descent into Madness

In the cool mist of the morning

there came such a day

a cattywampus creature

came to stay

An encephalopathy ailed him

captured his brain

biting at everything in sight

attracted to the colors in the rain

Calmer now

reaching the end of the rainbow

big eyes staring

not knowing where to go

Night falls

calmness in the dark

the creature rests

until there is a light spark

Diving deep

wanting the madness to end

death finally envelops him

a welcome friend

In another place

no longer overwhelmed

the creature is at peace

in the Heavenly realm

Staring into a Vision

Staring out the window

of his hobbit home

the man shivers

knowing he is not alone

There is a sizzle

a pleasant fragrant smell

something unusual

not knowing it well

A past experience is relived

being taken into a UFO

strange beings cooking

begging him not to go

Up into the structure

a rope hanging from a tree

the beings begin grabbing him

he falls to his knees

The fragrant aroma continues

intense light from the sun

blinded temporarily

wanting to run

A small being speaks

please come in

the fragrant aroma in the air

causing his head to spin

Memories flow

trying to piece the puzzle

then suddenly the fragrant aroma disappears

there is no more struggle

Quiet and serene

the lights and voice fade

sight returning to normal

now in the shade

Awakening now

was it just a dream

staring out the window

his eyes now gleam

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 New Universe

A new universe

was jettisoned into the sky

a memorable event

confident that life would multiply

Beautiful colors

light in the dark

oceans teeming with life

humans emerging with a spark

In the vastness

life continued to expand

stars surrounding the planets

waves sounding like a band

Interconnected

the universe lives in harmony

all needs are met

for all eternity

A Natural Storm

A storm raged

as darkness covered the river

shouldering the responsibility

thoughts that made me shiver

A product of the soil

an avatar houses my spirit

a constant reminder

that I am only here to visit

Underwear wet

as the rain beats down

my swaying in the wind

looking like a clown

Looking in the water

a jar of artificial crab

so close to me

waiting to be grabbed

Frankenfood is not for me

choosing to eat what is real

fish swirling around

nipping at my heel

Lightening strikes the water

moving safely away

wildlife all around

as the trees continue to sway

The storm calms

as I capture the evening meal

my avatar is healthy

eating what is real

A Relaxing Day

The mongrel sits beside me

taking in the beauty of life

projecting a prodigious amount of strength

having begun with strife

Jumping into the river

splashing around in the sun

with a seminal bark

inviting me to join in the fun

Taking the plunge

the water is cold

grabbing at the ripples

it never gets old

Splashing around

taking a brief swim

the coldness envelops me

numbing my lower limbs

Climbing up the rocks

the sun warms my soul

relaxing in the moment

thinking of taking a stroll

So peaceful

at the water’s edge

sounds of wildlife

speaking to me on this ledge

Getting up to leave

the mongrel leads the way

our souls are at peace

on this beautiful day

The Trip

On a cool windy day

the man walked the plank

blamed for storms upon the sea

his spirit sank

Once in the water

a titanic opening appeared

gulping him in to a passage

he disappeared

Inside he passed

into a section of coach

fish surrounding him

even a ghost approached

The usages within

the belly of the shark

required him to make changes

to his spirit and heart

Spit out at a port

the man now spiritual and clean

walked on to his assignment

given to him in a dream

Frightening at first

continuing on the venture

the man’s soul remains content

as he fulfills each exciting adventure

The Vacation Craft

It began as a craft

with my mawkish crew

the fish died of a bacterial infection

from the morning dew

A jacket was made

to commemorate the day

the last day of vacation

in an unusual way

The fish were cleaned

the skin sewed together

hooks and rocks made jewelry

there was talk of adding a feather

It smelled awful

one of us gathered a flowery weed

spreading it on the coat

giving it the aroma of a sweet seed

Gathering the fish

wrapping them in the coat

jewelry at the neck

then in the water to float

Waving goodbye

the craft moved away

taking a picture

before going along our way

Years later

recalling our craft

telling our grandchildren

who think we are daft
