The New Year

snow capped mountain alaska

Frigid cold on the mountain tops

a new year to get to know

sleeping dreams ready to rise

in the the flakes of snow

 

Months pass

the first bud of spring

renewal of life in the air

fledgling birds spread their wings

 

The soul senses change

with each new sun rise

tranquility and peace

experience helps us become wise

 

Reflections of trees

crispness in the air

leaves gently spreading color

birds singing with a flair

 

Winter sleep comes again

feeling like the comfort of a friend

silence and reflection

till another year begins

A Night Time Train Ride

IMG_4954

The night train to New Orleans

chugs along at a slow pace

in a cushy seat

my soul relaxes from the rat race

 

Sounds enter the mind

of music fast and slow

from the ivory keys of a piano

lifting spirits from a low

 

Visits to the cathedral come next

windows filled with saintly images

lighting a candle of hope

sad mood diminishes

 

Sitting in a cafe

listening to tall tales

sipping on coffee and beignets

of exciting city details

 

Street performers

performing magical feats

exciting the crowds

causing many a racing heart beat

 

Now on the way home

drifting into a comfortable sleep

my soul is relaxed

as the night train creeps

Secret Door in the Heart

IMG_4994 (2)

There is a secret door

that leads to my heart

few search to find it

mostly I stay apart

 

Behind the door

are dreams and loving care

it is an exciting place

if one would dare

 

The secret door

is filled with emotion

sometimes like a waterfall

filled with commotion

 

Other times the secret door is hidden

with things that I only know

good and bad

things to ponder not show

 

The secret door

carries things from long ago

filled with memories of others

love that continues to grow

 

We all have a secret door

that sometimes can be found

the choice is ours whether to open it

when others are around

Fun Childhood Memory

 

Happy Halloween! This is my favourite Halloween show. Charles Shulz was a genius who could spread life and morals through this characters. This remains one of my happy places. 

There was a pumpkin patch

where the moon light was bright

Linus brought a friend

to wait in the night

 

It was spooky 

in the mist

waiting with Sally

was pure bliss

 

The others 

had such fun

trick or treating for candy

getting to run

 

Charlie had fun

collecting rocks

always getting the trick

with each block

 

Snoopy battled the

world war one flying ace

on his flying house

getting shot down with grace

 

Violet’s party 

Snoopy grappled

hiding in water

kissing Lucy bobbing for apples

 

In the end it was Snoopy

who stole the show

rising out of the pumpkin patch

causing Linus to grow

 

Really irate

Linus rants to all

finding a sincere pumpkin patch

will cause Santa to fall

A Ghostly Bridge

old bridge picture of daddy's

The ghostly figure walked

along the old rusted bridge

life flashing before him

on this night did eternity hinge

 

Long ago

on a fateful night

the man encountered a Being

bathed in bright light

 

The Being gave him the option

to know the total of his days

to have great wealth

and to do things his own way

 

The man chose

to live his life in mystery

at the end to be accountable

for his place in history

 

The ghostly figure

walking along the bridge

meets the Light

and he begins to cringe

 

All the sudden before him

is a record of all his deeds

afraid of the karma

he is about to receive

 

Quietly the Light

begins to speak

the man cowers

he feels so weak

 

Judgement drawn

karma trumped by grace

the man is astonished

his misdeeds erased

 

Following the Light

the man begins to dance

paradise is embracing him

he has another chance
