A Valentine’s Day Dream

Beyond the clouds lies a village

delightful as can be

filled with chocolate

and a life of ecstasy

The streetlights topped with kisses

cream puffs illuminate the sky

a treat for the mind

pleasure for the eye

A stream runs

next to the street

churning chocolate lattes

the water wheel is neat

The surrounding flowers

produce candy blooms

a feast for the taste buds

love this cozy outdoor room

Eating in abundance

having a pleasant dream

wishing all a Happy Valentine’s Day

from my hammock made of ice cream

Morning Field Meditation

The sun beams brightly

over the horizon

sparkling dew on the blooms

the purity surprising

On this cheery morning

the warmth feels like a hug

birds singing loudly

joined by some bugs

As luck would have it

a family of deer appear

silhouetted in the shadows

till they disappear

The dew on the flowers

sparkle in the sun

creating a magical path

a fun place to run

Cascading down

following a stream

image is a mirror

a pleasant dream

Meditation over

hiking to the next place

marveling at the wonder

as the sun covers my face

The Camp Fire

Beauty in the fire

blazing colors in the night

a crackling sound

embers dancing with delight

Providing warmth

a circle to speak a tale

all around are intrigued

the story is told well

Crackers, marshmallows and chocolate

melting on a stick

sweet dessert

delightful and quick

Gazing at the stars

lighting up the night

dreaming of distance places

the journey is bright

Lulled to sleep

serenaded by the wind

crickets sing a lullaby

a pleasant days end

The sun rises

it is a new day

the journey continues

as we go our separate ways

Out of the ashes

new life emerges

Reflections of Light

Drawn by the diamonds

into the world of fantasy

the light reflections

occur naturally

A clover design

sits on the edge

a tiny gnome appears

his throne a hedge

An echo occurs

from a realm far away

I can hear him clearly

on this day

Ah my dear

a choice for you

instant fame and fortune

or a life of servitude

With a twinkle in his eye

glee in his voice

considering my welfare

given the interesting choice

In a moment it was clear

what was at stake

heaven or hell

which route to take

Fame and fortune

comes at a cost

constantly chasing material things

my soul could get lost

Choosing servitude

aiming at a higher goal

good times and bad

it would take a toll

The gnome laughed

as I was sent back

leaving the fantasy world

my life still intact

The beautiful sunset

gives way to the night

each day making a choice

memories of diamonds reflecting light

Is life real

or is it an illusion

choices are made

only the soul knows the conclusion

The Power of Three

A triangle created

the power of three

binding together

power for many

Each having a planet

surrounding the sun

faith, hope, and love

persistence is never done

Living in faith

believing in what one can’t see

wind blowing music in the heart

hearing what we need

Hope springs eternal

even when there is no clear way

somehow miracles happen

when the world has gone astray

Love is

the greatest of all

causing us to sacrifice

sometimes taking a fall

Our souls are full

the planets align

happiness and joy burst

when faith, hope, and love intertwine

A Choice

Hanging onto the beam

trying not to look at the ground

he had taken the bait

thought his fate was bound

Dangling feet

the sky showing history

of a savory life

some actions a mystery

He had taken to mollynogging

then placed bets at the race

promises of immense pleasure

nothing could replace

Hands slipping now

he saw what could have been

a wife and family

love that would never bend

One hand falls

the earth opens with fire

so deep is the pit

his situation is dire

It seemed so innocent

there would never be any pain

how little did he know

his soul would not gain

His other hand slips

falling into the flaming pit

screaming as he goes down

fearing for his spirit

Waking up in his bed

body filled with sweat

was it real or a warning

a destiny not yet met

Time to make a choice

about the life he leads

will the path continue

or will that destiny take heed

Winter Scene

The image below is from aw-landscapes at DeviantArt.com.

Animals and wildlife sleep

while snow covers the trees

branches filled with ice

instead of leaves

The wind is biting

trees on the brink of destruction

will the forest survive

this brutal obstruction

Wind dies down

the assault has ceased

a winter wonderland created

there is an internal peace

Like columns of old

the trees form a design

an illusion of sanctuary

or perhaps a shrine

The day becomes night

there is light from the moon

an eerie quiet

fills the created room

The scene continues

till time for spring

when new life appears

and winter becomes a dream

Victory on a Wave

In a fictitious universe

I am soaring confidently on the waves

one with the ocean

my spirit will not cave

Rising higher

with a cathartic laugh

dolphins dancing with me

movements are choreographed

Speed is increasing

super powers enhanced

the universe is mine

controlling all in the dance

Sliding into the beach

raising my arms in victory

defeating all fears

power now in my history

Walking toward the ocean

to do it all again

surfing is exhilerating

every wave is a win

The sun is setting

time to go home

grateful for the experience

and the time alone

The Painting

The painting spoke volumes

with colors of carker anxieties

a world in turmoil

many societies

The silence is deafening

yet the question is loud

why so much disagreement

thunder in the clouds

Each color has a story

anxious to tell

wanting someone to listen

calmly not having to yell

Out of the darkness

comes a bright light

beckoning each color to join it

taking away all fright

The colors come together

explaining their point of view

each color listens

agrees to create something new

Different designs

now live in harmony

in the new world

all the colors are free

Living Land

Across the vast mountains

the sun shines brightly

creating warmth generously

not to be taken lightly

The bonanza of trees

the whispering of the wind

an example of harmony

gracious and kind

A mirror image

created in the lake

clouds gathering close

thunder begins to shake

Harmony has shifted

violence in the air

loud thunder with rain

lightening with a flair

Trees sway and tumble

rocks begin to slide

cascading in the water

nowhere to hide

Suddenly its over

the storm moves on

the harmony returns

a new image is drawn

Renewal of the land

continuing to delight

providing to all that live on it

a blessing from God’s sight
