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

 

You Are Not Alone

Staring out the window relaxed and expressionless
Watching a time lapse of clouds slowly rolling by
Sounds of rustling leaves tinker with my thoughts
Thinking of the past year as I try not to cry

Everything and nothing can happen in an instant
The pinnacle of joy and sadness come to play games
Emotions become a battlefield of life’s happenings
And the heart never seems to come out unscathed

The struggles of life and death effects each one us
No matter our backgrounds we all cross these paths
Each year holds new fortunes in cookies unopened
Revealing itself at anytime life crumbles its mask

The clouds dissipate and the sun rays begin to peek
A thought bringing peace to my face is now shown
The ups and downs in life we all share together
Always remember that you are not alone

 

A Mothers Fury

Blue skies fill with sinister clouds
Gathering in the distance full of pain
Lightning crackles to show its furious bite
Warning of this storm brings more than rain

I can’t help but feel this is a message
One that mother nature delivers herself
She will not stand to be abused any longer
Especially for mankind’s insatiable wealth

My heart cries endless tears of sorrow
For these lessons it seems we never learn
We must take better care before its too late
Before we reach the point of no return

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

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. “
