I miss you so much pacific blue
Been so long since I felt your touch
Wrapping me in your glistening skin
Floating peacefully on your fingertips
While my soul plays gleefully in the sun

I dream of you through the window
Seeing you written on my shooting star
I can’t help but feel the pain of longing
When I know you’re still so far away
Hidden away behind miles of land

One day we will embrace again
Hopefully before the last grain of sand
Tumbles down the bottom of my hourglass
Sending me sailing to a new dawn
Without ever saying goodbye

 

Coffee Poem II

coffeecup

You’re all I ever need
Such a simple little bean
An antidote for narcolepsy
The drug for the happy feels
Awakener of my stagnant mind

The bold scent arouses my senses
I run hastily to it in dreams
When I wake its the first thought
Walking dead tired to the light
Following the smell to liquid life

My body envelopes its dark silk
Wrapping warmth head to toe
Breaking the ice of cold sleep
So I may start the day in sunshine
Spreading love with my happy smile

*Its been 6 years since I wrote of my good friend so I thought today would be a good day

 

The Train To Nowhere

Cruising down these tracks of wood and steel
Sipping cognac while my eyes drink in the view
Ludovico Einaudi plays keys in my headphones
As I nestle deep in a harmony I never knew

I feel like I’m flying through the woods
Floating free on a cotton candy cloud
Subtle bumps on the track is a reminder
I am still here riding on stable ground

Crossing a bridge reveals pristine waters
Glistening like diamonds on a sapphire road
The sun weaves its rays through open peaks
Warming the back of nature when she is cold

Day and night I journey to the unknown
A one way ticket is all I got in my hands
Hopefully in the process I will find myself
Down these tracks through tranquil lands

Wishing Upon Stars

Beneath the magic of stars above
Lights flicker to this piano melody
I wonder who else is here this night
Casting earnest wishes out to infinity

The vastness looks so dark and deep
Twinkling stars give me comfort and hope
lighting pathways throughout the universe
I wonder what awaits us beyond our scope

I feel no chill of the late night winter
Wine fills me with the warmth of the sun
A light streaks silently through the sky
Final wishes from the heart must be done

Tilting my head towards the endless
I send my final wishes into the night
Hoping one day they will be received
To be delivered to me in a golden light

 

A Beautiful Morning

Looking out towards the morning sun
Cold chills accentuate my exhaling breath
My coffee welcomes me with soothing comfort
Keeping a fire going from my stomach to my chest

A choir of birds sing their morning song
Binding my attention to the rhythm and sounds
I can feel their joy spreading to my soul
Now we are all standing on common ground

Sun kissed grass awaken from sleep
The ice lets go and disappears into air
Life comes out to the call of the warmth
Patiently I watch awake and aware

My heart soaks in deeply this perpetual bliss
With my mind silenced and nothing to say
I close my eyes being thankful for this moment
What a wonderful way to start this day

 

I’m Flying

I’m flying high above the tallest peaks
Like a kite carried over billowy clouds
Letting the wind take me where it will
Free of fear of crashing to the ground

The skies are of the deepest of blue
An ocean I swim effortlessly with the wind
The sun softens the slight chill on my back
My old life melts away as a new one begins

This flight fills me with unequivocal peace
I’ve never felt this tranquility of being free
I try to keep reality away from my heart
As gravity puts its weight on top of me

I’m being pulled through the sea of clouds
Floating like a feather back to my bed
I reluctantly open my tearful eyes
To find my alarm clock blinking red

Though I know it was only a dream
I’m awake and still feel light as air
Enveloped in a new love I’ve never felt
Shedding the dusty coat of endless despair

 

I love The Rain

Photo by Aleksandar Pasaric on Pexels.com
Dim candle light sets my relaxed mood
Silence is my companion as I read a book
A soft chair cradles my tired body
Finding peace where my eyes cannot look
Raindrops pepper down breaking the silence
I close my eyes to a sound so serene
Its been so long since I heard this melody
This moment I capture to replay in my dreams

The surroundings replenish with liquid life
My soul replenishes with ethereal fire
Staring out the window with an open heart
Embracing this moment I've long desired 
Raindrops now begin to wane away into the night
A great sleep dawns upon me at this late hour
I crawl into bed smiling from ear to ear
Anticipating my dreams of this beautiful shower

Under The Cherry Blossom Tree

cherry blossom

Under the cherry blossom tree I will always be
At the same time each and every week
Where the moon and stars shined just for us
As the soft breeze lay petals around our feet

A place where your eyes glowed of sun kissed honey
Reflecting the love of the universe as you came near
We held hands face to face in eternity’s embrace
Free from the rain of broken hearts tears

The dance of love moved our feet in feathered steps
Our flames interwoven transcending death and time
We danced the night away until the peeking sunrise
The beam landing on us in a golden straight line

Just before the morning rise is full and complete
You leave to the place where my eyes cannot see
I will patiently wait to see you again
Under the cherry blossom tree I will always be

 

A Beautiful View

saus

This view I drink in with parched thirsty lips
Silent goes my heart then explodes in love
My soul shines in unrivaled fantasy
Heaven has come down from the stars above

A subtle breeze wipes the sweat from my face
As clamoring leaves give their soft applaud
The senses of my hidden eye is now awake
My lotus within unfolds its petals with natures nod

I smell the tranquility from its fragrance
As I begin to see an entity within my minds sight
I close my eyes to get a clearer view
And I see myself bathing in an ethereal golden light

 

Imperfect Puzzle Piece

puzzlepiece

My adolescence darkened by shadows of doubt
Silence was my friend and in my heart we always played
I felt like the imperfect puzzle piece that never quite fit
The odd number in a world of evens they wished would go away

My pain hidden away masked by a broken smile
The cold air of loneliness snuffs out the light of my spirit
My wings soaking in tears of depression prevents my flight
Questions of why I am here so loud I can feel it

I never thought there would be a place for me
The lost imperfect puzzle piece that never quite fit
Until I found others with the same imperfect piece
That never gave up searching and refusing to quit

If you find yourself being that imperfect piece
I’m here to tell you that you are not alone
Stay true to yourself being that different soul
And let the heart guide you to your everlasting home

The Sound Of Silence

I hear you in the dead of night
As I do in the life of the day
Even during playful howling winds
My thoughts are taken far far away

Words fade away upon muted ears
Music dwindles down to a soft tone
Energy rises from my awakening core
The greatest feeling I have ever known

My thirst is forever quenched
In still waters that run so deep
Drowning in the sound of silence
Only these waters I can truly breathe

Dream Catcher

Chasing dreams all throughout the night
To try to catch them throughout the day
I can feel them close to my heart
Though I see them so far away

It is the lighthouse on the dark horizon
A beacon that only my eyes can see
Pushed by the winds of will on my sails
I cross the unpredictable uncharted sea

The land behind me fades from sight
No turning back as I face my fears
This journey tries to break my spirit
My face is weary from all these years

My heart beats faster as I reach the end
For this is the day my soul officially cried
I finally caught the sunset of my dreams
In its golden light I now happily reside

Letter Of Love

A sheet of paper blows in the wind
Landing purposely before my feet
Words are smeared with salted tears
A promise of two hearts destined to meet

Familiarity of these words of love
Of those only the soul knew existed
The awakening of light without the sun
Two flames melded and twisted

My tears add to ones on this letter of love
An epiphany strikes a question off my list
I throw it in the air to be found again
For those who wonder if true love exists

No Longer Blind

Sitting under the shade of the willow tree
Listening to the gentle waves push ashore
Inhaling deeply of the life that surrounds
Of this life I could not ask for more

The sun glistens off the skin of the lake
Clouds roll changing the waters complexion
My life is defined in this moment of bliss
As the lotus inside begins its resurrection

My heart opens like flowers in spring
Reaching for the light for first time
Encapsulated in the auras of life
My sight is clear and no longer blind

 

Everything Is Within

” There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself. “

-Miyamoto Musashi

 

Drum Of Courage

 

As I walk down the halls of darkness
Blind and unsure of where it will lead
All I have is the beat of my drum
So I march to where I cannot see

The cold whispers of fear warn me
Telling me to go back where I came
The drum beat urges me to move on
Even if I will never be the same

Throughout the sleepless eternal nights
I walk even when I feel I can’t go on
This dark path was meant to break me
Beat me down until I am withered and gone

I fall to my knees in a puddle of tears
Awaiting the reaper to take me away
I hear the drum loudly from my heart
Reminding me of this path I must stay

Finally I see the end of the darkness
Fallen cherry blossoms gather at my feet
I’ve come to the end of my journey
My legs feeling tired and very weak

The strength I needed was hidden inside
In the darkness I had it all along
It was the drum of courage
That kept me marching to its song

 

Dream By The Waters Edge

 

Dream with me by the waters edge
Let our troubles sail the endless sea
Watch the night sky bloom before our eyes
Pretend the universe is made for you and me

We will drink the essence of stars
Dance slowly under the full moon gaze
Reverently we enjoy this magical moment
In our perfection of love for eternal days

The stars rain down in celebration
Of a connection that transcends time
We will always dream by the waters edge
Until I am in your reality and your in mine

Spring Love

Your beauty captures my intrigue
My heart fills with the colors of love
Butterflies awaken to flutter again
Birds sing praises high above

Flowers rise to the warmth of your touch
The earth begins to bleed of green
Dullness of gray retreats away
Revealing the birth of colors to be seen

I find myself under your spell
Love of your beauty stains my heart
I feel your life just a breath away
spring is here, time for love to start

 

A Souls Journey

Staring off into the vast distance
Motionless in a thousand mile stare
Standing firm but fluid on the sand
Always present and aware

The ocean breeze is my breath
My hearts ebb and flow is the tide
In this moment I am it and it is me
The alchemy of the divine

Tranquility enters my timeless void
Blooming like a lotus in a still pond
Peace is now the reality of my being
I dance to colors of the sunset song

Stars stand watch in the night sky
Out here I feel like i’m never alone
My soul begins its own evolution
Finding the path to get back home

 

The Morning Rise

In the dawning morning rise
an awakening peace fills my soul
the birds sing of joyous songs
sunshine beams its ribbons of gold

The morning coffee is a welcoming scent
my mind paints a picture of the first cup
I take slow reverent sips of its bliss
not a single negative thought interrupts

Staying mindful in this moment of silence
with the hourglass of time tipped to its side
floating in the serene waters of pure joy
I begin the day with radiant love inside

The Pearl Of The Night

Your luminescent glow pierces the night sky
my soul meditates in your poetic tranquility
the beat of my heart mimics your light
we are one in the bond of our unity

Words never escape my muted mouth
my tears of joy speak more than words
you gaze upon me with your illumination
as I look at far away stars and other worlds

I feel the most alive in the calm of the night
serenity follows me when I see you in the sky
when myriads of stars fall in a prismatic rain
I know the universe has behold you and began to cry

 

 

Unsettled Leaf

I’m the leaf that plays in the wind
always unsettled where I land
finding myself in different spots
at the will of the winds command

I’ve never felt my heart at peace
where I can close my eyes and rest
I’m the puzzle piece that never fits
even when I try my very best

The winds continue to carry me
as I taste the riches of the unknown
all I want is just to find a place
where I can finally call my home

Our Dreams

our dreams are the light
the star we hold so dear
hope in its very essence
the truth whispered in our ear

it’s the pinnacle of our destiny
the hardest goal to grasp
our first flame of desire
the earnest wish in our past

let the seed of our dreams grow
it will ripen with patience and time
our hearts will beat of the purset love
as we watch our dreams rise and shine

 

Everlasting Love

The essence of your love lives in my heart
I feel the warmth of your everlasting touch
the beacon of light of your soul is all I need
loneliness in darkness I never felt very much

Our souls are tied forever by ethereal strings
unbreakable through the fabric of time
wherever you are I will always feel you near
eternally I feel your love as you do mine

A World Within

I swim in the ocean of my deepest depths
encapsulated in the tranquility of its touch
ensnared in the rapture of peaceful bliss
the calming silence I missed so much

thoughts disperse into abyssal waters
sands of time shatter into eternal stars
my soul glows of a love so ethereal
looking within we find a world that is ours

White Sandy Shores

 I dream of white sandy shores
where my feet can finally rest
feeling the cool ocean air
filling the lungs in my chest

I want to stare at the hypnotic waves
let my mind get lost in its ebb and flow
tranquility from sunrise to sunset
having nothing to do and nowhere to go

I must stay on my forward path
with the golden horizon in my sights
where my dreams will be waiting
to welcome me in its light

Dreams Of Love

Taking in the last glimpse of stars
falling to sleep under its silent lullaby
I awake into the sunlight of my dream
surrounded by a perfect blue sky

I see you standing next to the waters edge
motionless staring deeply into the sky above
with every step I take time becomes slower
my heart beats faster in the presence of love

As if you can feel me there you turn to me
we look endlessly into the souls behind our eyes
basking in the heat of a love that has no words
the tears of our lonely hearts begins to dry

Only dreams are big enough for this love
in the space where time has no beginning or end
I will always look for you there when I fall asleep
no matter where you are I will find you again

Love letter to writing

I have been away from you for so long
missing your articulated worded touch
my heart whispered upon deaf ears
of how it missed you so very much

The train of life sped down the tracks
further away from you I became
afraid that being gone so long
It just wouldn’t be the same

Then when the train slowed to a halt
I saw you through the open doors
my heart wept with tears of joy
of not having to miss you anymore

Waves Of Happiness

waves of happiness poemStaring off in the distance looking
for happiness that comes and
goes like the waves of the sea

Searching for that next perfect
wave to experience the euphoria
of an awake lucid dream

The feeling of a soft warm kiss by
the sun that gives me goosebumps
on my skin instead of burns

Lights of all colors become brightly
illuminated like a star kissed drop
of water everywhere I turn

The feeling of witnessing an act of
compassion between strangers that
rain tears from the eyes

The strength and will of a supposed
underdog that overcomes all odds
gaining admiration as the top prize

This happiness is hard to let go but
it must return to the sea to
be found again

I will always look for it staring off
into the seas hoping that wave will
return to me every now and then

The Wind

sunset3The wind pushes through my window
watching the drapes flail helpless
but free in a poetic dance

Inner thoughts of heart begin to
ripen revealing the fruit of
emotions as I watch in a
prolonged glance

My youth passes by my vision as
I imagine myself freely with
arms wide open embraced
by this wind

Everywhere I go I feel out of place
as I seek a place I can call
home where I can finally
rest and live

Until that day comes I will continue
to spread my wings and fly
until the winds can
carry me no more

And I close my eyes gliding gently
to rest finally at the home
of my dreams front door

Wishes

wishes
I never thought my wishes would ever come true
as I wished upon a different star every night
only to be returned to me in uninvited rain

One drop after another became deep scars I wear
soaking in the tears of anguish falling down
in a pool of sorrow laced with pain

Then something happend within the thick fog of rain
as it stops to reveal the newly open sky of stars
against the peaceful backdrop of the ebony ocean sky

Resting raindrops lay on leaves illuminated
by the full moons gaze and the fresh smell
of rain still lofts after the clouds stopped its’ cry

Sad thoughts wane away when watching the beauty
of this light return them to the darkness from
which they came and I bathe in a love I never knew

the weight of my wishes turn to mist when the
rising sun in my heart lifts them far into
the sky like the morning dew

There is no pain no sorrow no yearning for better days
for they have left no trace and as I become thankful
in this moment a wish was finally granted

A rainbow reveals itself during the sunrise of dawn but
this time the tears that fell are those of joy as the
sun lays a kiss on my heart firmly planted

So I guess wishes really do come true….

The Sunset Before The Fall

sunset2

As the summer fades away into the sunset
I stand under the autumn trees waiting for the fall
Memories made while others will be found again in nostalgia
I wish I could hold on and take them all

New colors seen under peerless sunsets
My mind taken to places far away I never knew it could go
I can still hear the ocean even when I fall asleep
As I begin to wonder if my happiness has reached the plateau

Now I sleep peacefully under a new sunset
Made with the kaleidoscope of all my memories
I found a peace I was never looking for
As it turned out it revealed an all new hidden me

The Airplane Window

airplanesunset

Looking through the airplane window
I become nostalgic about some of
the best days of my life
that have passed

The pink and orange hues of the sunset
gives a fitting end to my journey
of the days I spent looking out
sitting on the grass

The things I saw and felt can only be
described as waking up from the
most beautiful dream and
realizing your still
in it

An awakening light rose up in me from
the very deepest of oceans within
to quench the thirst of my
yearning spirit

I didn’t know I was lost until I found
myself again basking in joy and
laughter of such I have not
felt in quite some time

I found myself thinking of poetic verses
that must have come from my soul and
entered my awakened mind

I will never forget the time spent as I
immortalize the memories onto my
heart so I can always see them
whether I am asleep or awake

I continue to stare out the window after
the memories go to sleep as I look
forward to more memories
together next time we
will make

Beautiful Days Like This

The sunlight beams through every
crack and crevice of the leaves of
tall trees as I stand under
the partially shaded span

A squirrel rests on a branch high
above very still and relaxed seeming
to be in its own meditative journey
that it can only understand

The golden light highlights
incomplete spider webs on the
bushes giving off silky thin
strands of pearlescent lines

The sea of green grass lays before
me gently swaying in the wind like
soft turbulent waters glistening
under the suns brilliant shine

Butterflies show the art of their wings
contributing to natures exhibit as
the colors begin to remind me of
a cool autumn day

The atmosphere takes the breath from
my lungs and my thoughts disappear
as I cannot find any words to say

The dew of the morning moisture sits
patiently on the flowers and leaves
in small sap like diamonds as they
slowly trickle down to the ground

I can feel the peaceful vibrant energy
pulsating within my heart in myriads
of colors uncharted and I make a
silent wish for this moment
to always stay around

Searching

Never ending waves crashing
ashore as I watch everything
and nothing fill the empty
space of my mind

The waves hypnotize me while
the soothing breeze and shore
sounds helps my body relax
and unwind

The delicate white sands
underneath my feet provide
comfort as I know I will
be here awhile

I stare off in the distance
searching for something for
what seems like many
thousands of miles

Watching my life play against
the backdrop of waves I
continue to be comforted
by an unbroken breeze

I feel like I am stuck in front
of a door tightly shut as I
am hopeful my time here
will provide me the key

Every thought comes and goes like
the waves that crash on these
sands and then return to the
abyss from which they came

The lessons of the simplicity of
life is everywhere I look and
I realize the beauty in the
biggest and smallest are
very much the same

I stop looking towards the horizon
to concentrate on the soft sands
I stand on watching the
crashing waves easing
my mind as I feel the
yearning cease

My search is over as a key appears
in my hand and I unlock the door
to the palace of inner peace

Rejuvenation Of My Spirit

In the early dawning light I am
greeted by the golden eye in
the sky shining behind the
veil of silver and
white clouds

My thirst of beauty is quenched by
the illumination of nature as I wear
this serenity like a shroud

Negative thoughts recede away into
the darkness for it cannot survive
in the bright love of the light

My eyes close as I take in a deep
breath allowing the trust and
awareness of my third
eye sight

The eternal light of my soul shines
bright as I am enveloped in the arms
of the infinite universe

The abundance of energy becomes one
with my entire being and I begin to
see my surroundings like a
poetic verse

The soft melody of a song of love
resonates close to my heart so
my soul can heart it

I open my eyes slowly as the gentle
touch of love floods my being
opening the gates of
my rejuvenated spirit

Morning Peace

Sitting on a chair made of wicker
outside on the patio observing
the crowning of dawn

The warmth evaporates my formless
spirit raising it up to the clouds
as I forget about the chair I
am sitting on

My lungs meet the crisp cool air of
the morning as my awareness rises
like the sunshine of the day

My soul gives it’s approval as
happiness enters with peace
permeating my being having
it’s way

The stillness of the moment slowly
unfolding the petals of bliss as I
watch birds on the fence sing

My imagination gives me visions of
what it’s like to be the free powerful
wind underneath a birds wing

The yearning of home subsides as
natures wonders surround me with
it’s unequivocal essence of love

I beam with the golden aura of
oneness as I bathe in the light of
life from which happiness is
made of

Symphony In The Night

The backdrop of the sunset fades
away revealing the silhouette of
trees and hilltops deprived
of light

A symphony begins preparations to
play for the nocturnal all throughout
the evening night

The night sky sparkles like sequins
placed on black velvet as they
compete with the light
of the moons beam

The shooting stars of fireflies
across the yard make me second
guess whether this is real
or a dream

The crickets play the main part of
the rhythm and the frogs in the
short distance play the bass

A subtle breeze plays the bamboo
flute as I find myself captivated
every second sitting in the front
row of this magical place

This reality is the best dream I
never had so I will book mark this
moment as one of the greatest
of my life

The evening moves on and the sounds
of the symphony keeps me peacefully
sleeping until the dawn of
the morning light

Home

Clouds float on by overhead with
the elegance of a feather trying
to find a place to land across
the skies above

I feel the presence of a swaying leaf
nearby as a subtle breeze
describes the scene with
the gentleness of the
touch of love

Dandelion wishes catch a ride on the
wind in hopes to be granted
their most earnest dreams
coming from the heart

My being swells of light like the moon
and stars beaming the radiance
of wholeness in the presence
of natures art

Joy erupting in the fluttering of
butterflies strumming the
strings of love deep
within my spirit

The tingling of true happiness rising
into the virtues of limitless
compassion drawing me
closer near it

My heart beats with passion as I find
myself closer to the sanctuary
between the past and future
to this place I call home

Finally reaching my destination
christened by the tear drops
of my soul I arrive to rest
at the greatest place I
have ever known

The Other Side Of The Glass

the other side of the glass

Staring out the window watching reels
of my dreams play under the sunshine

Caught in the endless moment of my empty
thoughts as the smell of coffee keeps
my attention in line

Weeks and months seem to blend into one as
my heart becomes captivated by the very
sight of my dreams

Waiting for the day I can embrace them in
my arms but nothing is ever as easy as
it seems

I wish I could walk past the glass and join
my dreams as they bathe in the glow of
being whole and complete

They haunt me with whispers of destiny all
throughout the day and visions when
I sleep

A promise made is a promise kept so I will
someday lay with my dreams on the
lush green grass

One day I will find a way to embrace them
finally on the other side of
the glass

Solace

Solice

Blades of grass sway slightly
Pushed by the gentle touch of a breeze
The faint smell of s’mores in the air
Lofting through the rustling trees

Embers take flight out of the fire
Like red orange shooting stars
As all dwellers look to the sky
Observing the rusty color of mars

A faint light rests over the east
The sun waits patiently for its time to rise
The moons illumination shines on the landscape
Stars reflect off my humble brown eyes

Nostalgia plays movie reels of my past
Showing them vividly on the screen of my mind
A tear drops from my eye meant for sorrow
Instead drops for joy of the solace I find

The Simple Things

flowerssimplethings

Waking up to the smell of flowers
The fragrance lingers through the window
A delicate aroma absorbed in waves
Depending on where the breeze shall blow

I walk outside to see leaves falling softly
Carried gracefully by a subtle wind
Landing gently on the grass below
I look on patiently with a joyful grin

I close my eyes and let my senses see
Feeling the vigor of life surround my heart
Soaking in the soulful colors of nature
As I stand in the middle of her majestic art

I swell with love feeling light as a feather
Nature has given my soul heavenly wings
Grateful for the happiness shared with her
Showing the beauty of life in the simple things

Raindrops

raindrops

A soothing sound in my moment of silence
Drops by the billion drown all my thoughts
Deeper I go in the ocean of my awakening bliss
Opening the flower of my mind I have calmly sought

Deep breaths of your tranquility leave me speechless
Smells of this serene comfort soothes my spirit
Nature is playing a tune from her heart
When I listen closely I can hear it

Trees cup their leaves to catch the essence
Drops make their way to the soul of the root
The leaves and soil shine in natures radiance
As the wind plays songs off the bamboo flute

I dance to your cleansing tune with joy
As you shower me with the love from your tears
I always miss your touch when your gone
Waiting for the next time your scent comes near

Mosaic Art Of Humanity

colorful_mosaic

Life is a story meant to be told in
infinite shades of color each one
different from the rest

Each story has its similarities but
ultimately each is always different
from the next

Let the sun shine on the pages of
your life as you paint a picture
wearing shoes only made for you

Every stroke of your brush guided
by the whispers of your soul
reveals a picture straight
and true

Be the colorful inspiration to those
who still stare aimlessly at their
own stagnant blank page

Let them see the key resides in the
heart and if they look deep they
will find a way out of
their cage

Be the perfect example of yourself
as you paint your life showing
the world your colorful
individuality

Let our hearts paint the different
shades of our lives to be
combined in the mosaic
art of humanity

I Made It

stormcoming

Before I leave these sandy shores
and set sail on the turbulent
seas of my path

I bury the weight of the past in the
sand and now I am ready to face
the seas and all its wrath

I have heard the same broken record
played off the tongues of doubt
for those words I would never
let see the light of day

I walk through the crowd to the nods
of shaking heads as my head is
held high knowing what I am
doing feels right and done
my way

Fierce raging storms and strong backwards
currents almost end my journey but
as long as my sail stands strong
I will fight to the end

My promise to myself that I would make it
is a sacred bond that I will not break
under the longest strands of time and
the most ferocious of winds

I see the sandy glistening shores of my
destination and I begin to reflect on
how far I have come as I am carried
in by the soft touch of
gentle waves

I smile laying on the sand basking in a
promise fulfilled as I close my tired
eyes and whisper to myself I made
it and the sun shows me its
approval as I shine under
its rays

Dream Of Sorbet Colored Skies

sunsetsorbet

I sat patiently in my dreams for a
glimpse of this most
mesmerizing of views

Where everywhere I looked is dominated
by the soft glows and luminous
colors of natures hues

A surrounding peace absorbed me as I
watch golden sparkles of light fall
like raindrops from the sky above

As if she already knew what I was
dreaming and she showers me with
her lights of love

Her calming presence lofts over me
like a nurturing mother watching
over her child

As she greets me with the warmest and
brightest of lights as her way of
showing me her beautiful smile

When the day light came to an end and
just before the night can answer the
fading lights call

I turned my attention away to look up
to the clouds and see the most
breath taking view of all

Seeing her essence floating to the sky
as she showcased her colorful love
crying from her eyes

And I watched in undying appreciation of
this moment as my tears thank her for

sorbet colored skies

Through The Eyes Of A Bird

If I could choose to be an animal
what would it be

I would surely choose to be a bird
to set me free

To be able to fly the skies feeling
the wind underneath my wings

As I watched all below taking in
natures beautiful magnificent scenes

My bounds would be limitless as I can
fly anywhere to my delight

What a wonderful feeling it would be
to feel the freedom of flight

I would fly around the world as far
as my wings can take me

As I soak in the energy of natures
love taking me further than the eyes
can see

I now know why the birds sing and chirp
in complete joy and happiness

They live what it means to be free ready
to fly bonding in togetherness

So again if I were to choose what animal
I would prefer

I would surely choose without a doubt to
live through the eyes of a bird

The Infectious Virus Of A Smile

sun smile

The virus is sparked with just a
little bit of joy

It moves quickly to the lips where
it is then deployed

Working swiftly to engage the muscles
that control the frown

Releasing an uncontrollable urge
to turn it upside down

A side effect is the loving light
that fills the eyes

Followed by happiness that makes you
feel you can roam the skies

It penetrates the toughest of skin
and aims for the heart

Where it spreads quickly giving light
to the areas that once was dark

People all around can be infected with
just a glimpse of this madness

A definite sure thing to obliterate
the woe of sadness

It can never be stopped for it can
travel miles and miles

All it takes is just a single person to
spread the infectious virus of a smile

Sanctuary Of Peace

A place that I go where my mind can escape

To sit in the moment to quietly contemplate

Wherever I may be all I do is close my eyes

Imagining myself flying through the trees and vines

I see a waterfall down below that catches my vision

So I stop to stare endlessly as I wait for my decision

A sense of home overwhelms my whole being

As I begin to fly closer the stronger the feeling

I gently land like a cloud and sit on a rock

Staring silently banishing all my inquisitive thoughts

Patiently awaiting the wisdom of this meditation

Comfort encompasses me accompanied by a joyous sensation

I realize this is the place that was meant to be

A place where I can rest my mind and let my soul be free

Where I can let go of the world in a moment and release

In time of need I go to my sanctuary of peace
