Vestige of my Soul

The vestige of my soul

is hidden within a mask

showing joy or sorrow

is too much to ask

Living in the world

unknown to others

blending in without knowing

who are my brothers

Always being watched

freedom is gone

trapped in a matrix

feeling like a pawn

Making a bold choice

to live in the light

show myself

soul getting bright

Reaching out

giving a helping hand

comforting others

across the land

Meditation over

in a beautiful place

blessings are abound

gifts of grace

A Hunt in the Matrix

The star spangled matrix

lit up the night

souls spidered into the crevices

out of sight

A figure hovers

with deep resolve

swindle a soul

in which to evolve

The figure is empty

filled with hate

wanting to love

before it’s too late

Into the matrix

the figure searches each room

finally finding an unguarded soul

determined to cause doom

The soul fights

there is fire within

the figure strikes

with an evil grin

A light appears

an angel in the mist

striking his sword

the figure begins to hiss

Hurled into the darkness

the figure diminishes

blinded by love

the figure is finished

Love wins the day

the souls emerge again

embracing each other

for the matrix a win

An Organ Journey

The scene is grisly

blood where the corpse lays

yet a certain beauty appears

as the light begins to play

On this cold night

with snow on the ground

the wind is eerie

making a whistling sound

The corpse is

placed on the table

the heart is removed

and given a label

Before being stored

the heart gives a beat

flying through the air

down the street

Through the sky

feeling the need

there is a calling

answering with great speed

On another table

a dead heart is removed

the beating heart placed

dancing to the groove

Death in one place

loved ones filled with grief

another place has life

prayers of relief

A spooky beauty to it all

we are all related

connected in life and death

love is inflated

Visit From A Cat in a Hat

Jumping on the piano

quite fat

looking for a role model

saw a cat in a hat

He sat on the table

looking quite thin

chatting as he ate dinner

getting food on his chin

Picking up the newspaper

reading about current affairs

thought for a moment

stating life is not fair

Take my advice

eat until quite content

stare humans in the eye

they will wonder the intent

Swinging his umbrella

singing as he walked out the door

dancing in the puddles

the rain began to pour

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

The Golden Quest

Straddling my horse

riding into the wind

suddenly gold appears

my face with a grin

The gold is everywhere

as ludicrous as it seems

radioactive decay

sparkling in the stream

Riding into the sun

beautiful white light

gold falling to the ground

an incredible sight

Picking up the gold

excited at the treasure

rolling around in it

too much to measure

Picking some up

from the ground and the stream

enough to fill a mattress

an incredible dream

Sun begins to set

the gold fading away

could have been a myth

but the memory never sways

The Soul Stealing Owl

The orange eyes beacon

in the middle of the night

the spirit in possession

now has precise sight

Choosing an owl

using its intuition

looking for some troubled soul

to put in a fiery prison

Flying high

in the dark sky

voice echoing

a scary cry

A man walks head bowed

silently in the street

coming to a stop

hearing a screech

Down on his luck

now a bum

cold and dirty

filled with glum

Owl lands

a soul to steal

promising glamour and wealth

an enticing deal

The man looks directly

into those orange eyes

recognizing the devil

and his lies

Reaching forward

grabbing the feet

killing the owl

now cooking fresh meat

The evil spirit leaves

not able to understand

there is still hope

in this man

Sun rises

the spirit of the man leaves

rising to paradise

with owl feathers on his sleeve

A Meditation of Gratitude

A leisure walk

admiring the red and yellow leaves

anything is possible

if you believe

A cool wind blows

as the sun basks on my face

animals talk and birds sing

happiness to embrace

Gratitude for life

filled with joy and love

meditating in the forest

a gift from above

Looking within

remembering days gone by

good times and bad

having faith to rely

Love is in the air

my honey waits for me

welcome with a huge hug

eyes gleaming like the sea

Meditation over

a holiday to embrace

food, family, and friends

filled with grace
