An Adventurous Fight

Prior to the storm

laughter could be heard

a fresh new captain

who had much to learn

Daring the storm to come

he sailed into the wind

rain beating down

with a message to send

The captain danced

as the waves began to roar

as the boat rocked

his arrogance soared

Lightening strikes

electricity in the air

a fight with nature

there is a dare

Thunder roars

waves going over the boat

the captain climbs to the top sail

and begins to gloat

The next few minutes

the scene is a blur

the outcome uncertain

the captain’s spirit undeterred

The storm passes

calmness returns

the boat reappears

all concerned

The captain shouts

I have defeated the storm

the universe is mine

the ultimate life form

Sailing into the sunset

happy as can be

looking for the next adventure

his spirit filled with glee

Ice Illusion

A barmecide cleanser

the snow covers the land

using basic materials

continuing to expand

Pollution is hidden

white clouds in the sky

a beautiful scene

candy for the eye

Crisp and cold

the land is asleep

a section of ice melting

causing the river to weep

Spring will come

there is another chance

to clean up the pollution

so the ecosystem will dance

A Timeless Place

Through the corridor of time

there is not much change

a proverbial paradise

beautiful mountain range

Calming wind

an excuse not to rush

dew on my face

causing cheeks to blush

Walking along the river

a silent scene

leaves rustling

the trees are green

A story being told

the reflections go deep

time passes slowly

as the river flows into a creek

Time passes

I am joined with the land

happy and content

a wonderful life plan

Evanescent Mist

Misty fog over the mountains

curious shapes to the eye

hampering a clear vision

descending from the sky

Creating an illusion

exacerbating a sound

a deer darts between trees

rustling leaves around

Through the mist

there is an eerie glow

small rays of sunshine

cause a rainbow

A quiet calm

as the clouds begin to fade

a bird sings

not afraid

Sun encompasses the mist

the forest is alive

a stream is flowing

wildlife thrives

A quiet life

breathing in clean air

spirits are content

serenity everywhere

The Uninvited Guest

A beautiful spring day

enjoying a meal

an unexpected visitor

made an appeal

Abhor the site

the mosquito took a seat

feeling quite confident

an abstemious creature to defeat

The mosquito’s wings fluttered

as he landed on my skin

I randomly swatted my hand

on a whim

Leaving a welt

now buzzing near my ear

shaking my head and swatting

falling on my rear

Bug spray gathered

after a few choice words

spraying the patio

vision now blurred

Smoke clears

the mosquito is gone

plotting a new plan

a solution to count on

Late afternoon

on another day

tiki torches out

uncomfortable for the mosquito to play

Enjoying dinner

in the yard there is a song

mosquito staying in the yard

where he belongs

Life on Earth Day

The waters and land separated

life entered the land and seas

each with a purpose

there were no guarantees

Reflections of beauty

mirrored in a lake

a paradise unspoiled

promises to undertake

Caring for the land

enough resources for all

the spring of creation

before the great fall

Dust and pollution

greed across the land

wars spilling blood

destroying what was grand

Hope arises

each creature has a choice

to take small actions

to have a voice

The end is near

the Earth cries out

you are made from me

live in paradise or die without

Awakening the Soul

In the forest there is a great awakening

on this typical day

creatures begin to wander

making their way

Across the span of time

in the immutable space

cycles are in rhythm

in perfect pace

Walking along the edge

water cascading down the stream

into a blue valley

like a painting in a dream

Mist hitting my face

a rainbow within view

being part of the river

my soul is renewed

In the moment

combination of space, time, and thought

all in harmony

have hit the jackpot

Separating again

back into the present reality

ready to face the day

my soul has been set free

The Bee

Diving into paradise

a high register sound pulls the bee in

lips of the flower

farctate pollen within

The bee buzzes

performing a dance

ecstasy in paradise

now in a trance

Leaving now

returning to the hive

giving a portion to the queen

making honey to survive

Exhausted now

coming down from the high

job well done

time to die

The bee’s life

an important part of pollination

feeding the world

beautiful part of creation

Minimal Life Dream

Running along the creek

away from the flagrant city life

sun streaming through the trees

country comfort opposed to strife

A talent for simple living

running barefoot in the trees

mist in the air

a cool summer breeze

Under the waterfall

sits a fishing hole

fresh food for lunch

caught with a cane pole

A simple cabin

sits by the stream

lying in a hammock

a pleasant afternoon dream

Birds and crickets sing

on a cool night

happy in the minimalism

of a life in the fire light

A Natural Storm

A storm raged

as darkness covered the river

shouldering the responsibility

thoughts that made me shiver

A product of the soil

an avatar houses my spirit

a constant reminder

that I am only here to visit

Underwear wet

as the rain beats down

my swaying in the wind

looking like a clown

Looking in the water

a jar of artificial crab

so close to me

waiting to be grabbed

Frankenfood is not for me

choosing to eat what is real

fish swirling around

nipping at my heel

Lightening strikes the water

moving safely away

wildlife all around

as the trees continue to sway

The storm calms

as I capture the evening meal

my avatar is healthy

eating what is real
