An Autumn Stroll

Early morning walk

as the sun begins to rise

a crispness in the air

a clear sky

Leaves of many colors

candy to the eyes

sparkling with dew

filtered by the sunrise

There is a breeze

running through the trees

causing a whirlwind

stacking some of the leaves

Feeling adventurous

jumping into the pile

covered in leaves

laughing for awhile

Finishing the walk

smell of bacon in the air

breakfast on the porch

 A Wonderful Turbulence

From death comes birth

in the truculent universe

particles flying

all so diverse

Cogent arguments

of how life begins

an enormous starburst

the creator grins

Separating the darkness

inserting the light

parting the waters

everything is right

Beautiful landscape

lust trees and waterfalls

deserts and icebergs

the Earth has it all

Animals and birds

songs in the air

a few are exotic

colors with flair

Then come humans

given the gift of eternal light

hearts filled with wonder

love on sight

Continuously creating

given a great charge

protect life on this planet

the commission is large

How are they doing

interesting question to ask

time will tell

how humans handle the task

Saved by a Web

The battle rages

separating the weak from the strong

a soldier running

the path is long

Bombs exploding

death is at hand

will the young man die

in a foreign land

Enemy close

diving into a cave

situation appears hopeless

trying to be brave

Trying to persuade God

to save his life

so much left to do

with a beautiful wife

Suddenly a spider appears

weaving a new web

covering the cave entrance

flawless like fine thread

Enemy at entrance

shouting no one here

spider web sparkles

hiding what is near

Enemy passes

man is safe in the light

thanking God for all things

before leaving in the night

A Dream Trip

Lying against a tree

listless in sun

drifting towards sleep

a vivid dream to come

Spirit leaves the body

becoming one with the tree

memorizing the colors and textures

never felt so free

Leaving the tree

becoming one with the air

sprinkles of water envelop me

drifting without a care

Oceans and mountains

sand on the beach

one with all

dreams within reach

A trip to the stars

then the universe

such freedom

everything so diverse

Coming back

by way of the heart

beauty and love

great works of art

Waking up

energy is revived

dancing and singing

excited to be alive

Goblins

The moon has risen

the sun has gone away

the goblins are roaming

now is the time to play

In the woods

picking up sticks

marshmallows over a fire

combined with trail mix

Moon eclipses

darkest of night

ghost stories are told

small screams of fright

Inside a tent

all snuggled in bed

sounds of an owl

causing nightmares to dread

Frost in the morning

time to go home

goblins laughing

memories when they are grown

Life on the Edge

Walking along the creek

alone in my thoughts

forest is calm

then there is a gunshot

The shot is loud

piercing my ears

running for cover

death is near

Hunters are coming

following their dogs

there is mercy

in the form of fog

Running into the mist

hiding in a ravine

praying for a miracle

not to be seen

Fear is my weakness

mind clouded with doubt

beginning to tremble

there is no way out

A storm appears

there is a shift in the wind

my scent is now hidden

perhaps this is not the end

Hunters and dogs retreat

a gift of another day

serenity and peace return

as I go my way

The Attack

Seeping through veins

the river of blood flows

carrying a secret

that no one knows

Fear and anxiety

spreading through each cell

blazing brightly

as it enters hell

Every deed

presented from within

a towering presence

with an evil grin

Fire and lava

sears the blood

the heart screams

terror in the flood

Begging for mercy

wanting to be free of the pain

calling for help

as heat sears the veins

Out of the darkness

mercy relieves the heat

calmness is returning

with each heart beat

Attack is over

as the night turns to day

life returns to normal

as the demons run away

A Victim’s Vengeance

Out of the belfry

bats fly high

searching for blood

in the nigh

A recent murder

a smell of fresh blood

a corpse is lying

in the mud

Spirit leaving the body

calling the bats by name

demanding vengeance

on the one to blame

One bat drinks blood

following the scent

catching the murderer

answering the lament

Murderer is tortured

as the bat feeds on him

refusing to repent

his future is grim

Death finally comes

on Halloween night

spirit eternally roams the Earth

tormenting all with fright

The Monster Within

A riddle to solve

reality or a dream

another October

a brilliant Halloween

The night is dark

time for the monster to rise

pent up anger and rage

a struggle to survive

Owls hoot

leaves gone from the trees

fire in the soul

struggling to breathe

Loud thunder

strikes of lightening in the sky

the pain intensifies

letting out a screaming cry

The rain beats down

in an attempt to cleanse

moving toward shelter

refusing to make amends

Lightening strikes a tree

surrounded by fire

survive or succumb

the situation is dire

The monster within

what choice did it make

the sun is rising

is it dead or awake

Out of the Ashes

Out of the ashes

a new spirit grew

burned in the fire

time to renew

The danger had come

brought to His knees

swore He was defeated

the demons all agreed

The morning came

from the ashes He arose

gaining strength

in the sunlight He began to glow

His enemies trembled

having never seen such love

death has been defeated

a gift from above

Now a King

spreading the Word

darkness has been defeated

the Light has been heard

Grace is given

shared with all who will hear

never again encompassed in darkness

the victory is clear
