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

A Dolphin Party

Playing together

singing a joyful song

the dolphins rejoice

their union is strong

Sure that life

is long and good

the dolphins greet visitors

who visit the neighborhood

Jumping in the air

performing acrobatics

humans swimming with them

trying to be dramatic

Other ocean life

joins the party

having much fun

some fish are quite hardy

A killer whale approaches

ending the festivities

the dolphins and other wildlife

take their leave

Reaching safe waters

the dance begins again

life is an adventure

each day is a win

The Gnome

Snoozing in a hammock

with birds singing a lullaby

I was gobsmacked

when a mercurial gnome came by

Skipping along the rocks

having just left a rainbow

he tried to get my attention

throwing a rock from below

Producing a jewel

saying it had great power

trying to steal my energy

as much as he could devour

Grabbing his jewel

throwing it in the air

a bird quickly caught it

not willing to share

The gnome was furious

how dare I steal his stone

all power had left him

now he was alone

Picking him up

attaching him to a comet

screaming as he flew away

his aura flared like a rocket

Awake now

observing the night sky

stream reflecting the comet

as it says goodbye

Evanescent Mist

Misty fog over the mountains

curious shapes to the eye

hampering a clear vision

descending from the sky

Creating an illusion

exacerbating a sound

a deer darts between trees

rustling leaves around

Through the mist

there is an eerie glow

small rays of sunshine

cause a rainbow

A quiet calm

as the clouds begin to fade

a bird sings

not afraid

Sun encompasses the mist

the forest is alive

a stream is flowing

wildlife thrives

A quiet life

breathing in clean air

spirits are content

serenity everywhere

Proposal by the Sea

With scrupulous attention to detail

he awaits her arrival

his life has been vacant

struggling for survival

Her love has enabled him

to be free

now with a ring and rose

he will propose on his knee

A life together

like waves in the sea

mixing together

an adventure filled with glee

The time comes

she smiles looking at the rose

their eyes meet

he drops into the pose

Tears in her eyes

she accepts his proposal

he lifts her in his arms

excited at their betrothal

Climbing on a sailboat

sailing into the wind

a long happy life together

their spirits intertwined

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

Traveling Spirits

Traveling the forest

with a gun in hand

being a vagrant

spreading light across the land

Partially hidden

a hood hides your face

walking the land

with a mission to embrace

A personality with pizzazz

with some hidden mystery

I was fortunate to meet you

on my life journey

Crossing the span of time

we meet in spirit each day

bright light encompasses you

spreading happiness along the way

The time will come

when we live forever

the dark will not hide your face

your spirit I will always treasure

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
