A Bicycle Ride in the Sky

Fish in my backpack

my spirit chipper in the cool air

riding in the clouds

without a care

Investing in the future

doing my favorite thing

so alive and happy

bicycling while I sing

With roads leading to Heaven

a city in the sky

atop the mountain is a cabin

where family gathers for a fish fry

Getting closer

the clouds begin to break

a forest with beautiful flowers

a calm serene lake

Home now

in the Garden of Eden

unconditional love surrounding me

complete tranquility and freedom

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

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

Life Choices

Leaving the island

hoping never to return

looking through rose colored glass

so much to learn

The sun is setting

on this time in my life

taking my faithful dog

fascinated with the wildlife

Across the mountains

accessible by the sea

the city awaits promising a

hectic lifestyle with glee

Excitement abound

no time to rest

so much to experience

life filled with zest

Years pass

no time to catch up

spirit is weary

tired if being grownup

On a ship again

returning home

the sun is rising

longing to be alone

Home now

favorite dog by my side

fishing near an island

enjoying being alive

Spider in a Cafe

Entering the revolving doors

an idea in his mind

the patriarch sat down

for a minute he was blind

Startled by a voice

looking at the woman with a glance

began an awkward conversation

her beauty was enhanced

He spoke softly

with a radical plan

they could make a fortune

he asked for her hand

Sitting up straight

she looked him in the eye

speaking from her heart

she could not lie

Sometimes people think they want something

not thinking it through

acting on emotion

especially after having a brew

In this cafe

it’s just you and I

for all you know

I could be a spy

The man thought for a moment

then got up and left

realizing he was about to commit

to certain death

The woman had a sly smile on her face

she was not a fool

being a black widow

was ever so cool

Waiting for her next victim

in the dim cafe light

listening to jazz music

it had been an interesting night

Joy in a Train

A young boy

stands upon the bridge

purity in his soul

character without a ridge

An ace at jumping

many times on his bed

the train gets closer

the caboose is red

Wanting to ride

he had plan

his method was simple

timing where he would land

Walking closer to the gate

the train is near

eyes wide open with excitement

there is no fear

Standing on the edge

he doesn’t hear the footsteps

father is behind him

determined to protect

The boy jumps up

its time to leap

father catches him

in one big sweep

The boy cries

let me go

I can make it

the train is slow

Father hugs him

now is not the time

we will go to the station

the ride is just a dime

On the train

the whistle blows

excitement all around

the boy’s face begins to glow

Childhood

time to enjoy

simple things make him happy

just to be a boy

The Message

Inundated with choices

gazing into his translucent soul

looking for answers

from a pain that was old

They had been young

meeting at the beach

watching the sun rise

all possibilities within reach

He held her hand

as they walked along

laughing for hours

singing silly songs

He was an artist

painting the sea

she was a poet

filling books with glee

The romance was ended

her life taken by a storm

he grieves by the waves

no longer warm

His flexibility gone

heart is broken

seeking comfort

silent words are spoken

Staring at the books

her spirit calls his name

directing him to a book

wanting to comfort an old flame

He chooses a book

filled with the poetry she wrote

finding comfort in her words

seeing a love note

Assuring him

they will be together again

the old man smiles

emotions difficult to maintain

Walking away

there is a ray of light

the old man’s spirit joins hers

on this very night

Sign of Progress

Standing in a quagmire

sniffing chemicals in the air

a kettle filled with black water

cameras film the despair

Longing for the forest

of streams that are crystal clear

wildlife roaming in the trees

of a life so dear

Warning signs of the toxins

erasure of common sense

progress all around

the air is dense

A ray of hope

a picture of the brain

thinking of what is being lost

standing in the acid rain

A few gather together

leaving the progress behind

preferring to live in simplicity

returning to an earlier time

Encroachment continues

the few begin to fight

others join them

seeing the light

In the forest

a bird flies above

singing to all those around

the Earth still has love

A Dream of Diversity

On a concrete tiled lot

everything is the same

umbrellas and tables alike

nothing has a name

In the shadows of umbrellas

she had a dream

in the pursuit of diversity

being free to scheme

Beginning to renovate

her mind started to spin

excited at the prospect

frown turned into a grin

Taking fabric

the umbrella is transformed

unique in character

no longer uniform

Plants appeared in the shade

color moving with the sun

leaves of different textures

one vine to run

Walking along the edge

someone else comes along

he has a dream

conformity is no longer strong

A little at a time

others that are unique

dare to make changes

no longer afraid to speak

Whispers over Coffee

Flitting in the park

it begins with a phrase

he is quite smitten

she is amazed

Like a young lad

doing things to showoff

causing her to laugh

true love not far – off

An intimate encounter

a whisper in the ear

an answer to a proposal

the wedding is near

A blissful morning

filled with laughter and cheer

now they are newlyweds

the future is clear

One morning

a whisper about something new

joyful glad tidings

a baby is due

Years pass

the couple is now old

happiness spread through whispers

the love and coffee are never cold
