Rain

Rain is beauty in droplets of water, reminding me to breathe. Rain is a steady touch of coolness, in-spite of life’s great heat. Rain is magic sprinkles, falling all around me. Rain comes in, I close my eyes peace once again has found me.
 

Garden Of Dreams

 I prepared the ground and soil

To plant a wonderful garden you see

Not of vegetables, flowers or plants

But a beautiful garden of dreams

 

Each day I’m sure to water

The seeds deep in my ground

Of taking chances, adventures

And new opportunities found

 

Then finally at the appointed season

The hardest work will end

And I will reap the harvest

Where living the dream begins

The words of a picture

He sits quietly on a park bench

Adjusting his view of the world

His dreams trying to clench

The struggle around which his thoughts swirled

 

He’s always looking for purpose

A place to call his own

Some days he thinks he finds it

Others he spends alone

 

Each morning he walks a new path

Taking chances with each breath

He opens each door with caution

To avoid inspirations death

NATURE

A standing tree lifted high

I see each day as I pass by

 

Every summer giving shade

Every fall colored leaves fade

 

Rings inside with stories to tell

How this tree stood while others fell

 

Winter branches empty and still

Spring branches waiting for birds to fill

 

A standing tree lifted high

Has become a friend as I pass by

REFLECTION

I stare out into the deep blue sea

A mirror looking back at me

 

Reality in all its truth

Is looking from reflections booth

 

Drummers drumming out of beat

Trying hard can’t find my feet

 

Walls reflection as I pass

Hear the falling sand of  hours glass

 

Thunder Rumbles, clouds roll by

Wondering why I all but die

 

Raging emotions cut too deep

Promises never meant to keep

 

Passing mirror myself I see

Backwards reflection of who I can be

 

Stage is set won’t be long now,

Curtains up take a bow

 

Mirror of me disappears

True image is left minus the fears

Somewhere Over The Ocean

Somewhere over the ocean

My heart found its home

Over the waves of Blue and Green

on smoothed out rounded stone

 

Somewhere over the ocean

I found the missing piece 

I was unable to see it until now

For it was hidden by the sea

Somewhere over the ocean

My eyes were opened wide

All my fears were washed away

All my dreams washed in with the tide
 

One Step

Someone somewhere had to be first

First to break the mold, change the path, break the curse

Someone, somewhere had to be the change

To change the people's hate filled minds

to love, to forgiveness, to grace

Someone, sometime had to say enough

Enough of the closed minded thinking

Give acceptance, compassion, be love
