Meditation of the Night

Rising each night

the moon lights up the sky

wonders and mysteries

candy for the eye

Surrounded by stars

beauty and peace

gifts from above

blessings increase

Sitting by a fire

watching the sky move

stars are sparkling

dancing to the groove

Planets appear

shining bright

wonder what is on them

following the light

A comet passes

tails with debris

how fun to ride it

exciting thought to me

Drifting off

cool breeze on my face

blanket to keep warm

cricket songs to embrace

Meditation over

feeling safe and secure

surrounded by serenity

my spirit is pure

Nightmare of Death

Nightmares haunted me

while in a deep sleep

fighting evil creatures

the hole is deep

Monopolizing the nightmare

is the fear of dying

is there life beyond

a purpose for trying

Grabbing a compass

which direction to run

morning is coming

east to the rising sun

A wraith appears

think it’s mother

pointing to the sky

beginning to smother

Grasping for breath

one final attempt

slaying all fears

my life is exempt

Becoming one with the light

surrounded by love

friends and family join with me

grace from above

Living in harmony

this world has no fear

peace and contentment

not one tear

Sun is rising

nightmares are gone

free to live

grateful for the dawn

The Filtering Doorway

Walking through the forest

contemplating heaven

sun filtering through the clouds

a beautiful intercession

A doorway appears

reflections in the light

past, present, and future

all within sight

In this perfect moment

love radiates from within

sending hugs and kisses

through the wind

The golden leaves fade

door is closed

time is reset

leaves decompose

Seasons change

fall to winter

soul rejoices

in nature’s splendor

Flowing Meditation of Grace

Water flows

cleansing my soul

the blessings of the day

shimmer in the water hole

Encouragement from a new friend

over a cup of tea

answer to a prayer

sitting with me

Feeding the hungry

with a hot meal

listening to a story

life is quite real

Sitting with the sick

holding their hand

healing of the spirit

grace in command

Admiring the beauty

breathing clean air

gift of nature

reflections everywhere

Walking home

sparkles in my eyes

sun is shining

puffy clouds in the sky

Meditation over

spirit filled with glee

listening to the falls

grateful to be free

Pocket of Dreams

In the midst of the cobweb

there is a pocket of dreams

interpretations of life

trapped in a screen

Thoughts holding a conference

determining what holds power

discussions begin

at the midnight hour

Emotions assist thoughts

as the leaves glide in the wind

colors represent feelings

the veil is thinned

Red representing rage

at things that are unfair

feeling trapped

caught in a snare

Others leaves without color

representing death

is it all over

at the last breath

Yellow leaves

representing life

hope and love

defeating the strife

Morning comes

dew on each thread

sparkling diamonds

there is nothing to dread

Joyful thoughts

rule this day

feeling love

protected by a sun ray

Halloween in the Forest

Euphoria in the night

regurgitating tales of old

friends gather

in the autumn cold

Hot apple cider with rum

a homemade drink

gnarl in a tree as a tray

toasting as the mugs clink

Lighting sparklers

dancing in the night

a squirrel joining in the fun

causing a fright

Gathered in blankets

ghost stories are told

of devils appearing

with promises of gold

The moon is full

as the revelers make their way home

filled with joy

allowing imaginations to roam

Passionate Storm

In the storm there is a melody

encapsulating my heart

consecutively woven

a brilliant piece of art

Raging feelings

loneliness with each lightening strike

fighting for suvival

with all my might

Why can’t I see you

or feel your presence

voice as loud as thunder

you are not a rememberance

Becoming part of the rain

flying in the wind

dropping into the ocean

yearning to send

Living each moment

feeling the pain

searching for you

hoping to gain

Reassurance comes

in the form of a rainbow

getting closer

time is slow

Meditation over

never alone

you are always with me

my spirit has grown

Vestige of my Soul

The vestige of my soul

is hidden within a mask

showing joy or sorrow

is too much to ask

Living in the world

unknown to others

blending in without knowing

who are my brothers

Always being watched

freedom is gone

trapped in a matrix

feeling like a pawn

Making a bold choice

to live in the light

show myself

soul getting bright

Reaching out

giving a helping hand

comforting others

across the land

Meditation over

in a beautiful place

blessings are abound

gifts of grace

A Hunt in the Matrix

The star spangled matrix

lit up the night

souls spidered into the crevices

out of sight

A figure hovers

with deep resolve

swindle a soul

in which to evolve

The figure is empty

filled with hate

wanting to love

before it’s too late

Into the matrix

the figure searches each room

finally finding an unguarded soul

determined to cause doom

The soul fights

there is fire within

the figure strikes

with an evil grin

A light appears

an angel in the mist

striking his sword

the figure begins to hiss

Hurled into the darkness

the figure diminishes

blinded by love

the figure is finished

Love wins the day

the souls emerge again

embracing each other

for the matrix a win

An Organ Journey

The scene is grisly

blood where the corpse lays

yet a certain beauty appears

as the light begins to play

On this cold night

with snow on the ground

the wind is eerie

making a whistling sound

The corpse is

placed on the table

the heart is removed

and given a label

Before being stored

the heart gives a beat

flying through the air

down the street

Through the sky

feeling the need

there is a calling

answering with great speed

On another table

a dead heart is removed

the beating heart placed

dancing to the groove

Death in one place

loved ones filled with grief

another place has life

prayers of relief

A spooky beauty to it all

we are all related

connected in life and death

love is inflated
