awe of gentle breeze

fragrant shadow of delight

moonlit hope aglow..

catch the air of her appeal

as she fades into the night

A Ripple in Time

A ripple in time, we are here for a moment like fleeting vapors in this vast, great universe-- members of a divine God. Into the night sky I gaze, awed by space and time and the wide expanse of the Milky Way, a dot among endless galaxies. They spin and swirl in a dance in the gaping voids of space and blackness, their light coming to us from a time before our Earth formed. A ripple in time, we are here for a moment like fleeting vapors in this vast, great universe-- members of a divine Whole.

The Moon and the Sea

The moon and the sea Water crashes on the shore Shines in from the moon Where waves come rushing on me Opens world of the ocean

The moon...

   How she looks tonight?
   A pearl strung amidst diamonds
   Silhouetting shades,
   The shadows of evenings light.
   A melodic phrase...

   "The moon"

Worlds and Lovers

A Hollow moon sleeps Atop the calm sea water under a blanket of clouds Earth and moon rest as one soul awaiting grace from sunrise
beauty of the soul in uniting the two worlds is in shades of blue For all lovers to observe hearts will beat as one spirit

Within the Stars

Our feelings were high On this cold, dark, star-filled night I ogle your eyes You form beauty within them They twinkle like the white stars The moon shows its face As we walk down the black hill Letting our hands touch Our feelings surely brought joy As the sky winks at our love The stars have their love Ones that shined that gorgeous night Romance brought by stars And the moon has its power Love enters both of our minds

Moon in Foggy Mist

The moon has risen Slightly into the night air Reflections are cast On the river down below A foggy mist lies opaque

on late summer eve
when moon shines cloudy halo
silvery garden
magically transforms dreams
enlightened without shadow

Free Flowing

A real golden hue Dynamite against the sky Harvest moon escapes Free flowing is the yellow Bouncing one to another
