An Upgrade to Life

Things are getting fuzzy

the end is near

reaching for something

there is much fear

Wanting to upgrade

ascend into a new life

leaving all things behind

particularly the strife

Into the paranormal

a dark tunnel appears

flying fast

suddenly everything is clear

The light is bright

entering a new world

a new reality

choices begin to unfurl

A universe to explore

filled with planets and stars

different dimensions

or a trip to mars

Another choice

field with beautiful flowers

calm and serene

cooling rain showers

A new power

to slow down time

live in the moment

each experience a lifetime

This new life

always an adventure

ability to experience it all

without censure

Morning Reflection

Walking along the path

dew gleaming from the leaves

birds are singing

sun filtering through the trees

Sense of obstinacy in the air

as the cool breeze blows

squirrels fighting over acorns

as piles of leaves grow

Water flowing

in the nearby stream

calming my spirit

as if in a dream

Sitting on the porch

a group of deer come by

regal and majestic

taking a moment to say hi

Leaving some of the harvest

small payment to the land

blessed to be a part of nature

in a world so grand

The Old Barn

The storm draws near

as the incisive wind blows

the frenetic storm is explosive

as the legend grows

The old barn

sitting patiently on the plain

surrounded by prairie

filled with grain

The storm circles

lifts the barn from the ground

swirling in the air

heaven bound

Lightening strikes

tempers of the sky flare

a powerful argument

thunder fills the air

The barn swirls

a cow flies out the door

wheat surrounds it

now nothing on the floor

Storm calms

barn now in a new location

strangely intact

having new sensations

Sun shines bright

electricity in the air

barn carries new life

even though bare

Seeds from wheat

sown in rich soil

growing in the wild

easing a farmer’s toil

Barn providing shelter

to cows and stock

intact and strong

steady as a rock

Time passes

a new storm forms

barn has a new destination

life is reborn

Spirit Flight

Soaring high above the land

spirit happy with flight

taking in the beauty

in the day and the night

No longer groveling

in hatred and fear

having been released

holding freedom dear

A sunny day

crispness in the air

spirit is light

seeing colors with flair

Sweet music playing

as the landscape sways

wrapped in joy

troubles fade away

Spirit at peace

joining the others

wrapped in love

living with sisters and brothers

Light as a feather

content and at ease

eternity in the light

happy in the swaying breeze

Peace in Writing

Seeking solitude

in the middle of the day

distractions everywhere

taking my peace away

Gathering needed supplies

ignoring all pleas for my time

going to my happy place

with coffee and wine

Time to write

immerse myself in a story

paper and pictures

may use an allegory

Words flow

magical world takes me away

trees and flowers

begging me to stay

Now at peace

warm with a scarf and a sweater

immersed in a fantasy world

spirit is lite as a feather

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

content without a care

 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

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
