Weeping Willow

                                             
                                              The tall
                                        Weeping willow
                                     Waves majestically
                        Somehow she seems to be haunted
                                             Moaning

                                              Maybe
                           She’s merely airing her branches
                                   In the windy meadow
                                       Being heard by
                                              Spirits

The Ugly Truth

Riches
Rampant beneath
The surface, a body
Dressed in curves, hard edges, and sea
Bounty.

Goodness
That is needed
By the masses, a gift,
Yet used for self gain carelessly 
A rift.

By those
Who pursue greed
Seeking gains and power
Without the checks and balance of
Nature.

We see
The ugly truth
Over the globe, high bill
Of disasters and waste so crude
Oil Spills.

Escape the fierce sun.

Seascape

Escape
Away from here
To the sea of Your grace
To assuage my fatigue in
Seascape.

Watching
An ocean calm
Just for a while, breathing
Salty sea, its moisture a balm
Healing.

Restores
forlorn spirits
Hearts that couldn't give more
With the distant song of whales to
Their love.

Escape
To meet You here
In the peace of this place
That restores my spirit, freed in
Seascape.

The Sun Has Come Again

The sun
Has come again
After having been shunned
By the fury of warlike clamor
Of guns.

It was
Time for cease fire
Tired of the endless 
Clashes of unyielding powers
Oppressed.

Now calmed
Wishing the coming
Of the spring season's charm
Washing off the grind in showers
Disarmed.

Breathing
The sweet fragrances
Of new found wider views
That melt the ice and see our hopes  
Renewed.

PRECIOUS MOMENTS a quintile

Long days
Of August sun
Where nature blinks and shrinks
The dying grass,yellowed in sleep-
Held fast
as
Oat grass
Tinted old gold
Shimmers on tall green stems;
On a clear warm light of evening sun-
Back-lit
the 
Brimstone
Awakens,then
From each flower hovers
On the drying wind of the breeze-
Sun-lit.

Acrobatic Essence of Zephyr

Swift
winds drift
parading
hopes cascading
lift

Zephyr's delight
caressing branches in the breeze
Zephyr's delight
Spirals of light
flickering shadows from the trees
Currents of erotic winds tease
Zephyr's delight

Spires
from mires
of gray sway
and receive thrills
as the soft whispered breath of Zephyr spills. 

Rushing
Gushing
Fleeting
reeting
Zephyr races Rushing, Gushing through
He passes so Fleeting, Greeting few

Zephyr's
endless travels
across earth's face he'll stir
his caress gently unravels
wonder.

His winds entangled in the vines
that tickle`spines
and softly kiss
us with his bliss.

He sweeps the fields of golden corn
within the morn
and tickles grass
as he zips past.

Oh, Zephyr's voice around us trills
his sweet song spills
into a dance
of sweet romance.

Zephyr
Heavenly, immortal
Whirling, swirling, twirling
Grand, graceful Roman God; Grand Graceful Greek God
Whirling, swirling, twirling
Heavenly immortal
Aeolus
