A Dream Life

Relaxing in the morning air

after the night’s rain

skittering my pole

quietness to maintain

My future

up in the air

how to make a living

and have some to spare

In this beautiful place

idioms filled my mind

what to tell others

whose life views are blind

Living off the land

exciting to me

coming from the dust

living carefree

Catching a fish

taking it back to the hut

cooking it on the fire

flavoring with walnuts

Living a simple life

happy as can be

no explanation needed

because I am free

The Raindrop

In the circle

a raindrop falls

entering into the earthly realm

a small light to all

Living through the depression

then a world war

an example of resilence

a mentor

The raindrop spreads

making an impact on all

participating in history

determined not to fall

A man walks on the moon

expanding the universe

crisis on this planet

the raindrop continues to traverse

A passing occurs

the raindrop perseveres

faith shaken

grace appears

The incandescent raindrop

returns to the clouds

joining others that are loved

the priviledge of knowing you was ours

The Pilgrimage

The journey is long

crossing a cold snow bridge trail

a pilgrimage

to cure all ails

At the top

is a magnanimous soul

radiating solar energy

a cure from days of old

The spirit calls to them

testing their devotion

each struggles to continue

strong in emotion

Growing in faith

an important prep

a cold wind blows

difficulty with each step

Reaching the top

there is a light

a healing pool

reflections are bright

Taking the water

each pilgrim is healed

receiving a blessing

and a protective shield

Going down the mountain

strength to endure life’s hardships

their soul’s are at peace

it was a worthy trip

Redeemed by the Light

Deeper into darkness

exhausted by calumnies

the caves consume me

spirit filled with agony

Will I be redeemed

or is this the end

no one around

now condemned

Suddenly a light

appears from above

slowly pulling me up

a feeling of love

Closer to the top

hope filling me

a new life chosen

now am free

In the water again

helping others to rise

living in truth

defeating the lies

Happiness in Simplicity

The night sky shines

reflections on the lake

cosmos of infinite possibilities

happy to be awake

Soaring on a wing

and a prayer

searching for my destiny

on a dare

Stars shoot by

waving at the planet

onlookers in amazement

many in transit

Wonder and joy

chasing fireflies

light reflections

candy to the eye

Not disappointed

everything is clear

spirit is alive

with love and all things dear

A Serene Place

The forest awakens

as I offer morning prayer

a cauldron of gratitude

in the cool crisp air

Thankful for the new day

filled with cosmopolitan creatures

all are unique

each has distinct features

The plants are

showcasing colorful leaves

expressing feelings

gratitude perceived

Sun filtering

through the trees

gateway into this world

time appears to freeze

Meditation over

starting the day

a calming place

to work and play

A Silhouette Dance

In a conglomerate of ice

impervious to the cold

the flowers sit

a special story to be told

A couple dances

in a moonlight silhouette

perfect concinnity in love

a classic vignette

Separated between time and space

each has left a flower

in preparation

for the happy hour

Eternity awaits

as they continune the dance

flowers waiting in the ice

to celebrate a heavenly romance

Eruptions in the Soul

In the midst of controversy

the lava flows

terrible emotions

as the fire glows

Pragmatic solutions

permeate the day

fear and sadness

as humans runaway

Is there hope

where is the light

darkness envelops the soul

being smite

Down the path

cleansing of the soul

fire meets the water

a story of old

Clouds and smoke lift

the sun shines bright

hope and renewal

the soul returns to the light

Happiness in the Mist

In the midst of deep forest

all worries are castoff

walking along the path

encountering a trough

Together we drink

the wildlife and me

cool water

enjoying harmony

Our homes are modular

unique to each of us

providing comfort

without a fuss

Silence is broken

as birds and crickets sing

sun burns off the midst

stream begins to gleam

A beautiful home

grateful to share

serenity around me

surrounded by those who care

Looking Beyond

Out of the depths

of the ocean I stood

in pristine condition

wanting to be good

Ever so mindful

of the life I have led

time to take account

a moment I dread

Some moments in Heaven

and others in hell

having done my best

till the sound of the bell

In the water

smiting the waves

taking one last moment

trying to be brave

A loving voice calls

telling me not to be afraid

expressing love

for the service I gave

A job well done

for the lessons of this life

time to come home

to a place with no strife

Peaceful and happy

among those I love

an eternity of serenity

a gift from above
