The Vapor

Vibrant blue colors emerged

a memory of halcyon days

sweet smells from vapor

as the color begins to sway

Acceptance of life like a lamb

relaxing in the warm breeze

never any worries

a life filled with ease

Floating higher

the mist begins to grow

rain comes forth

there are many things to know

Staunch walls are formed

innocence is put away

opinions are formed

everything is gray

The vapor is swirling

is anything real

illusions consuming it all

thief trying to steal

The vapor fades

close to the end

is there hope

can the vapor bend

Out of the shadows

vapor in transition

emerging in another realm

new life in another dimension

Vapor is now an ocean

filled with abundance

applying lessons learned

enjoying a new life of substance

A Spring Shower

The spring shower

casting raindrops on a leaf

serendipity for the surrounding life

giving much needed relief

Repeating patterns

contrary to the ice

a piece of art

actually quite nice

The fallout

causes life to grow

trees, grass, and flowers

create a summer glow

The spring shower is over

rain drops continue their cascade

some create a waterfall

a new stream is made

Repeating rain patterns

working together

the land is bountiful

what could be better

The Pier

In a secluded place

I have found my retreat

on this pier

water on my feet

In the brevity of the day

contemplating my thoughts

away from the world

what lessons are taught

Dangling my pole

out of the water jumps a fish

making a perfect circle

I make a wish

A theme for life

how much fun it would be

if there was a plan

specifically for me

Surrounded by the mountains

each day carries new life

a unique adventure

sometimes filled with strife

Things planned out

that would be so easy

nothing would go wrong

never a thought of being crazy

But for me

that would not be fun

must feel the soil

freedom to run

Excitement each day

a new adventure to happen

joy in my heart

each day a new passion

Picking up my pole

turning to leave

fish continue to jump in the water

I can finally breathe

Wild Horses

The wild horses raced

with a brilliant glow in their eyes

through the sand on the beach

running for their lives

The rustling mafia chased them

intense in desire

lacking sobriety

to increase their empire

Water splashing

blinding the enemy

the horses resourcefulness

give them flexibility

A large wave comes

crashing all around

engulfing the rustlers

making a thunderous sound

The horses begin

slowing down to a peaceful pace

the ocean acts as a guardian

to their home place

The horses rest

safe at home

living in harmony

in a safe place to roam

The Skull

On this particular day

the candle light sniffed out

hollow eyes peering

expression filled with doubt

The breeze oscillates

through the dim lit room

sands of the hourglass flow

is it time for doom

A closed book

the spell has been cast

will there be another victim

or is he the last

It’s the first day of the month

the sun shines in

all dark shadows are gone

the light echoes a grin

The skull changes

his spirit follows the light

the book burst into flames

as the spirit takes flight

Up above the clouds

a huge sigh of relief

his spirit begs forgiveness

for being a thief

Only the skull remains

beside the sands of time

the candle now brightly lit

no longer suffering for his crime

Living in Harmony

Exploring the trail

a scientific adventure

wanting to know more

there will be no censure

Examining the trees

such beautiful bark

the backbone of the forest

the contrast is stark

Farther down

looking at life in the river

fish everywhere

a snake begins to slither

Now seeing wild life

deer and squirrels

playing delightfully

running in circles

Food abound

acorns everywhere

a winter food drive

before the trees are bare

Loving the ecosystem

amazed at its sufficiency

such a wonder

like a symphony

All is interwoven

a mutual dependency

all things have a purpose

nothing works separately

Walking home

a smile on my face

having learned so much

about how the forest is interlaced

The Claim

I laid a claim

upon the land

dubious in my movements

feet resting in some sand

The cloud spoke to me

from high above the trees

what right do you have

to live among the leaves

Preservation I replied

to leave a legacy to others

the freedom to live in peace

to be in awe of the wonder

I promise

to give as much as I take

leaving things as pure as possible

clean up what I make

There will be others

who come this way

lessons of respect

each and every day

The cloud dissipated

leaving with a smile

a sense of approval

my task was worthwhile

Lying down

observing the stars

content with my new life

and new stories for my memoirs

A Fireworks Show

Sitting on a bench

waiting for the fireworks to start

a teenager lighted a fizgig

to play a small part

The show was superior

constant magic in the air

light dancing to the music

life with a flair

Watching the bright colors

create something new

was this how the universe began

with a bang that grew

Becoming a part of it

dancing to the tunes

with each new light

came a boom

After a while

it all came to an end

a spectacular memory

leaving my face with a grin

The Quest

The minions worked hard

to please the king

invigorated by the project

promises of a magic ring

The ring would grant wishes

provide sumptuous meals

everything they desired

it was a great deal

Time passed

the masterpiece was completed

such magnificense

glory not to be repeated

The minions

went to collect the prize

they were surprised

at what met their eyes

The ring was an illusion

they were enslaved

working intense hours

never satisfied no matter how much they gave

Seeking freedom

they attacked in the night

a magnificent show

featuring music and lights

When the battle was over

the ring was destroyed

all that was left was a castle

hollow and void

The minions cried

they longed for the king

wanting to do it all again

for the promise of a ring

Life Decision

Walking along the coast line

questioning the wisdom of the day

do I leave paradise

or find a way to stay

Working in the city

cafes, art, and money are the lure

practical for my business

it is secure

Living near the ocean

each day a delight

a simpler life

is within my site

Irreconcilable differences

a choice to be made

where will I be happier

tropical sunshine or the concrete shade

Considering the options

beautiful colors where land meets sea

a simple beach life

is calling to me

Decision made

leaving the city behind

a calmer new life

my soul feels divine
