A Field of Flowers

Beautiful flowers scattered

across the field

looking in amazement

the bountiful yield

Morning dew

sparkles like glass

bubble type reflections

admiring while it lasts

So many colors

seeds flying in the wind

admiring nature’s discipline

in knowing how to send

The pollinators

hummingbirds and bees

dancing joyfully

fertilizing the seeds

A cool shower

the flowers open to drink

a wonderous cycle

liking to think

The sun returns

nourishing the plants

the reward is flowers

making an exciting entrance

The sun sets

the land is asleep

pleasant dreams

a prayer for souls to keep

An Ancient Wish

The open door called to me

as if it were ordained

deja vu all around

a hint of pain

The magnet of the old city

heat bouncing off the rock

searching for my identity

locked in an ancient box

Searching my memory

the answer finally came

stupefied by ghost with me

nothing would be the same

An ancient relative

who had a dream

a time would come

to live where things were green

Plenty of food

all would be in great health

love and harmony

a place of wealth

Flowers in bloom

diversity in the land

everyone will have a friend

lend a helping hand

The past became the present

making this dream come true

another door opens

I am part of the glue

Returning home

giving aid to those in need

living in harmony

planting another seed

Some day another relative

will walk through a door

a ghost will meet them

poverty will be no more

The Luminous Shoelaces

The wondrous path

filtered by the sun

many cricket throats sang

tempting me to run

My shoelaces tangled

an experiment gone awry

multiple colors flowing

a result of luminous dye

Small creatures

interested in the sight

came close to investigate

giving me a fright

Walking down the path

stepping into some water flowing

fish came closer

to the shoelaces glowing

A cabin in the distance

happy to be home

finding new shoelaces

putting the colored ones on a gnome

Looking out the window

the gnome now lights the way

a path into the forest

adventure for another day

Insufficient Data

The canvas is insufficient

to express the emotions in life

moving forward each day

in happiness and strife

Is a painting

just a moment in time

capturing the spirit

keeping emotions in line

Are emotions just color

is anger red

yellow a representation of happiness

does black express dead

Is green envy

causing people to stray

does a color have the power

to make people go away

On a gray day

looking at the clouds

depression filling the air

can color express emotions out loud

Meditation over

looking at the painting

putting the canvas up

thoughts for the day waiting

An Elephant Phobia

The clouds in the jungle

made things difficult to see

the elephant walks along a path

eating from each tree

A hint of sound came

causing the elephant to startle

stopping at once

the sound is garbled

The sound is close

from a nearby tree

normally he would ignore it

and never let the fruit be

So bizarre

the elephant quickly bolts

a case of kakorrhaphiophobia

an old memory is evoked

A similar tree

had contained a rat

it ran around his feet

engaging in combat

Although in his youth

the incident not forgotten

all fruit from the tree

was rotten

Calming down

relaxing in the river

hungry again

this time the trees deliver

Morning Run

Running along the path

there appears to be no escape

companion is rambling

distracting from the landscape

The path is long

hangry as I run

enclosed in a mental cage

no longer having fun

Running faster

companion catching up

seeing a food station

anxiety about to letup

Grabbing a sandwich

and a drink

sitting down for a second

trying to think

Companion still

getting on my nerves

looking ahead

to where the path swerves

Reaching the curve

companion still talking

throwing him in the water

and then continue walking

Never fear

he knows how to swim

knows me well

accustomed to acts on a whim

Companion catches up

he enjoyed the race

the water is cool and relaxing

it was worth the chase

A Water Drop Journey

The vortex forms

mist leaves the cloud

thunder sends it out

sound is quite loud

In a spiral

out of control

destination unknown

a type of black hole

Amused at the journey

aghast images unfold

getting smaller

seeing a hole

Swirling closer

becoming a dot

getting warmer

coming out hot

The adventure ends

now a part of tea

combined with sugar

refreshing as can be

A Fall Celebration

The cloudy mist

exacerbates the stream

looking frothy as air

a perfect holiday dream

Smells of marzipan

on the table

a fire warms the room

feeling grateful

Out the window

a deer in the woods

glancing before running

feeling understood

Friends arrive

bringing some cider

laughing at stories

tall tales spread wider

Sitting down to eat

giving thanks through grace

plates filled to the rim

leaving no space

Feeling full

eyes begin to close

friend playing a guitar

lulling me into a doze

Awakening now

surrounded by ones whom I love

feeling popcorn

thrown from above

Time to leave

been a beautiful celebration

glorious memories to carry

until the next occasion

The Alien Nightmare

With deep resignation

I left the light

enveloped in darkness

great torment in sight

Up in the air

the aliens are so lean

surrounding me

can hear a loud scream

Led to a table

realizing the scream is mine

gregarious aliens surround me

my teeth begin to grind

First in friendship

offering my desires

living in the darkness

attached to their wires

Resisting the temptations

soon on a table

experiments done

now disable

Calling to God

loud thunder in the air

suddenly released

free from the snare

Rising again

this time returned to bed

calmness returns

there is no dread

Morning comes

the sun filters through

was the encounter real

or some form of deja vu

Time passes

no more aliens have appeared

still no answers but

no longer living in fear

A Hippie Love Bug

Hiding in the brush

the love bug rests

a rusty relic filled with love

when time was at its best

In a time when the doctrine

was free love and peace

resources spread graciously

violence had ceased

In a field

came the sounds of rock and roll

hippies changing the world

loving each soul

The weekend of paradise

came to a close

realities of the world

once again rose

Youth to old age

legends born and grew

the love bug silently sits

a rusty memory in the dew
