Eternal Soul

The soul's forever—
As an eternal spirit.
Leaves this mortal coil . . . 
	 Again to the spirit world 
And home to Heaven’s Kingdom!

The Journey of Beauty, Fourth Generation Born

From egg to pupa and then to caterpillar - its life has started. When squeezed from its chrysalis, the miracle has blossomed. Flitting through meadows, Beauty seeks its nourishment beneath August skies, delicately alighting on a spray of goldenrod. Petal to petal and stem to succulent stem, the monarch fills up on the nectar that it needs for its ultimate journey. For hundred of miles, an orange flurry of wings crosses southern skies. Reaching its destination, Beauty falls to long slumber. The butterfly wakes with one purpose to fulfill. New eggs must be laid because the journey back home cannot be this monarch’s own. For one final time, this fourth generation born flits among gold blooms, reveling in its last days - its measure of creation. Written by Andrea Dietrich (I learned some interesting facts about Monarchs researching for this poem. Click on "About This Poem") Inspired by Gail Doyle's A Butterfly's Trail Of Kisses Poetry Contest

Lonely Traveler

Lonely traveler
Searched for light in dark of night
Toes, like gavels, pound
ice covered asphalt. Poignant
cry echoes behind closed doors…

Inside, warm bodies 
nibble cake and sip hot tea
as sojourner seeks
a smidgen of sympathy.
Lights on, but its dark inside…

Journey: Tanka Sequence

remembered lines
of poetry from youth
just pretty poems
the adjectives and  adverbs
hypnotizing my heart

the poetic spell
almost consuming my life
from houseman to frost
and back to shakespeare
and dying inside for truth

so simple and silent
devoid of actual words
so memorable
useless dreams of prized stuff
carried away by wind and stars

Soon I was looking
at real stars and mountain crests
without prettys rosy fins
looking really looking
without judgement try to be

Long Journey

On the mountain path
I walked on and on and on --
At the great cliff's edge
I stepped onto the moonlight,
A traveller in space

I smell the fragrance 
of your body close to mine 
the flower of my love 
now you are alone 
for one last journey

Journey Home

Peace love and faith is what makes a soldier a man. Serve with heart and soul. Now it’s his time to come home with an eagle watching now.

Fly By

Past the layby fly
Cars with petrol in their tanks
Going home for tea
We're not going anywhere
Pancake flattened battery

Changes Receptivity

Changes are one of
The things that are real in life
Flow with the events
If you stay inflexible
Petrifying would reach you
