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

 

Under The Cherry Blossom Tree

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

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

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
