Happiness Is

On being happy, I'm no expert.
On that you can rely.
So I really ain't that qualified 
to tell you how or why!

But I'm gonna stick my neck out
and take a chance or two.
When handling things that come your way
keep an optimistic point of view.

Don't let bad times get you down
things will turn out fine.
Most problems are gonna disappear
and soon again the sun will shine!

Just accept what nature offers.
Let your "conscience be your guide".
Just step back, take a real deep breath,
put your problems all aside.

Imagine your life with a clear blue sky
your sun like a yellow balloon.
Then after night time comes around,
Imagine a beautiful  moon?

There's an old expression I once heard
which needs no affirmation,
"Happiness is a journey,
not a destination"!

When The Sun Sets

When the sun sets, The stars shine with no regrets. Darkness fills the air, The moon gives light with every care. The darkness is easier to walk through, Every light shining is so pure and true. Guidence forever are the stars in the sky, With them we find our places lifted so high. Forever is the moon to cast light upon us all, We become encouraged to stand firm and tall. The stars shine with no regrets, When the sun sets.

When the sun sets, Shining its powerful light it never forgets. Though light fades to darkness, It comes about with alertness. Shadows before the eye can see, The little shining light is enough to set us free. Sometimes we are afraid to walk alone in the dark, From which we were given a caustic remark. Guidance Forever is the changing of dark and light, It helps us to be strong and make one last fight. Forever are the shadows lurking at every turning point, If we give in it is ourselves we disappoint. Shining its powerful light it never forgets, When the sun sets.

When the sun sets, The sky is filled with wonderful colors that the ocean reflects. All the animals of the sea, Come forth creating a musical harmony. The waves crash upon the shore, Washing up new sand to the ocean floor. Its a beautiful site to see, The ocean sounds are calmingly free. Who's to say the ocean isn't peaceful get away, Its a calming place to relax and stay. The sky is filled with wonderful colors that the ocean reflects, When the sun sets.

Yum Yum Girl

Who said the sun rises in the East?
That's not true in the very least....
The Sun rises and sets in the West
Where does dwell the very best...
My Yum Yum girl
Sweeter than molasses
Shining and brightening my way
Oh, I do bless
The very day
I set my eyes on my Yum Yum Girl
My heart has ever since
Been aswirl...
For my Yum Yum Girl
Tasty love beyond belief
Oh, what a relief...
To recapture
My Yum Yum Girl
My Yum Yum Girl

A smile that beams
Golden hair that gleams
How I love the laugh
Of my Yum Yum Girl
My Yum Yum Girl
Oh, my, oh my,
My Yum Yum Girl.
My Yum Yum Girl.


These are written as song lyrics.
Next the music.

Pursue Love

Pursue love,
the love that has no meaning,
the silver ports of the moon,
shine so bright,
that it blinds you in the twilight
she is beautiful and she is divine
she is the song sang by the sweet nightingales
in the gardens of worthy, overgrowning and blooming roses,
like wildfire grow tall and the thornes of the vines
tangle around her feet and drag her ever so slightly
throughout the garden of beauty.
As the roses lay along a table,
as she sits at the table
and she waits for me, the wordman
to come to the dinner table at the stroke of nine
and sit with her,
start a scene or two of romantic setting,
to pursue love in her name.
Love is around us,
the candlelight shines and reflects in her silk hair,
as her evening dress glitters and shines
and her bossom shows itself in the nightsky
as we lay together,
we pursue a dream together,
forever we live together forever,
as we stand upon the belcony of Romeo and Juliet's love scene
we swim in a pool of sweet divine care and love,
we swallow grapes and drink wine
hand and hand on Persian rugs and virgin white cloth sheets,
we dance to a simple, yet sweet Chopin's masterpiece
of his beautiful nocturnes,
which make such a sweet and romantic song in our heads.

We stomp out the flames
as we dance the night away,
and you lay in my arms,
and I kiss you upon your lovely head,
and you hold my hand,
and I hold you tight
never thinking of letting your love go away from me,
I would take my own life,
before I lose your love.
See us together,
it is a painting that lasts lifetimes,
that needs no touch-ups.
I care for you and love you!
Love me, I know you will.

My sweet and loving portrait lady,
who in reality is more beautiful than a fully bloomed rose
that sits on its green stem,
in the garden of beauty that sits outside my window.
Come up to my chambers
as I picked roses for you and pettles litter the atmosphere
as love's tension grows
and suspence brings us together,
let us make love tonight
seal the passion
and pursue love once and for all.

Then shall we wake with the first rays of the blazing of the morning sun,
I shall wake next to your beauty and glory,
and I shall point my attention to the heavens
and thank the Gods for sending you on the open road,
toward my chamber door, I call my heart.
Then we shall dress, and walk the pathways
in the garden of beauty
and I shall pick a bauquet of roses
and we shall sit by the lake and pursue our love
for one another
and nothing, not one earthquake shall shake us apart.

4ML

She gave me a dry idea
Then asked me if I wanted to join her
To go dancing in the rainwater
Only for me to wake up
And find she lived in my slumber
So let me close my eyes again 
And sleep the night and days away
To be with her all through this time
With rainbows 
in the raindrops 
in her hair that Shine

I'm stuck behind moving willow trees
Who are stuck behind a line of white taxis
Wipe my eyes from the wind and water
If you would want this to seem shorter
Don't these stares aim for you?
I've been facing them for a month now
All because of a point of an opinion
On how much worse the sun has shone through

We sat on the grass
And looked out to the floor
500feet below us maybe even more
She told me who she was with tears in her eyes
Her sadness forced me to open mine
Once again she was gone from in front of me
along with her tears and her shame
Pull the sheet over my head and remind me again
Calling out in my subconscious
To her silhouette
To turn when I say her name

I'm stuck behind moving willow trees
Who are stuck behind a line of white taxis
Wipe my eyes from the wind and water
If you would want this to seem shorter
Don't these stares aim for you?
I've been facing them for a month now
All because of a point of an opinion
On how much worse the sun has shone through

For my life
For my love
You make me struggle
You've made me break
But just like stone
I'm not leaving this point
not until the sea washes me away
I still have plenty of time left
To watch the dreams
As my days float on by
For my life
For my love

we are stars

people are like stars,
some are younger,
some are older,
some are brighter,
some are darker,
some are bigger,
some are smaller,
but in the end we are all the same.

shining bright with our personality.
dont care about what other people think.
its their own opinion.
be unique,be you.
you are who you are, and who you are is all their gonna get.

Noonday Sun

Noonday Sun

Suffering, so much suffering astounds,
Suffering brings us to our very knees,
And cries out to us in sleepless nights,
In the morning, fatigued and wrenched,
Begging for a reprieve from the day,
The sun is blocked by the sound of our own doubt,
“Where is the end of all this?”
“To what end is this, Lord Buddha?”
And he points to the clouds,
And says, “Wait”
And in that moments waiting,
We think to our children,
And we look to their faces, smiling faces though still starving in tattered rags,
And we understand, that there is a brighter day for them,
For someone made the Sun I tell you,
For someone made the Sun,
And as the Son heats the clouds,
We feel the wind on our heat scorched faces,
And we say, “Allah, what is the meaning of this?”
And she says, “Wait!”
And in that moments waiting,
We think of Mother Jones pleading for her people as she speaks truth to power.
And as droplets of rain begin to fall into our sordid subconscious,
We begin to grasp the nature of a Grace that suffers with us,
And as droplets of rain begin to fall into our sordid subconscious,
We look to each other,
And feel the warmth of a Noonday sun.

Reflections

The forest was ours—
The trees swayed in
Unison with our steps.
Our words became
Whispers in the wind.
The sun shared silver
Shafts of bright light
Through restless leaves
As you held my face
In your hands and
Tenderly kissed my eyes,
My cheeks, my lips.
I was cradled in the
Warmth of your love.
We reclined on a bed
Of leaves and shared our
Thoughts and dreams
For hours until we watched
The golden sun disappear
Into the twilight sky.

Sun Shine

Oh, the sun shines and the wind blows
the crisp, apple-wind, blows,
laughing through the half shorn tresses
of the sugar maple trees.

Oh, the sun shines and the shadows fall
like long gray mufflers, foreshadowing,
the wraps of winter winds
and frost on dawn's green grasses

Oh, the sun shines and the heart sings
full and ripe as the pie pumpkins
waiting to be picked 
and the comforters calling from the beds
of cuddling children.

Oh, let the sun shine for it fills my soul
for when the dark of winter persists
I will remember this.

My World

The sky is blue
Just like your soulful eyes.
And just like those eyes
The bright blue sky can
Fill my world with wondrous delights.

The sun is warm
Just like your lips on mine.
And just like those lips
The sun can warm my soul.

The flowers bloom
Just like my heart when 
I think of you.
And just like the thought of you
The flowers brighten my day.

The world is a wondrous place
Just like my world with you.

Brought To Awe

When the sun hits the bellies of the humble clouds at dusk
I'm amazed, I'm entranced, I am but a speck of dust.
When the gulf eats the sun in a nibble and a bite
all my senses stand up tall to applaud the gift of sight
When the mountains cradle shadows 'gainst the pink of sunlit trees
you will find me deep in prayer toward the one with wise decrees
And when I'm standing next to you with our two hands intertwined
I am brilliantly alive with the knowledge you are mine...

When The Sun Rises

Dear God, when the sun rises,
I can only wish for a better day.
I'm not looking for consolation prizes;
I know life can't go entirely my way.

I just want to love and be loved,
To have hope and a great faith.
Sometimes the choices in life are tough,
After sunrise creates a new day.

Morning Sunshine Song

Another day is dawning
and the Sun is rising high
he's dancing in the gentle breeze
across the morning sky!
The birds call out their greetings
as the Sun winks his hello
and I'm happy just to be here
to watch this morning grow!

I see the little flowers
as they're shaking off their dreams
my spirit swims among them all
within their rainbow streams!
The air sings with their perfume
in a fragrant melody
and I float in their sweetness like
a love struck bumble bee!

Another day has started
all its wonders I behold
the Sun is smiling down on me
he's filling me with gold!
Everything is beautiful
when Sunshine lights the skies
I know I'm blessed to see the world
through these enchanted eyes!

Ode to Mi Corazon

As I pull weeds from cracks in sidewalks
Yout sit on top of thrones made of solid gold
And I pay no mind to the women around me,
Only to your beauty do I hold an Ode.

I see my fair Spanish lady
my daring, sweet rose with thorns,
That run up and down her spine.
As she stops in the daily parade
Waving at the peasants,
She looks at me and summons her guards
Too take me away.

Her beauty is unbearable.
I cannot take not being with her
For a single moment in my life.
Her hair,
Black like coal,
Her smile is bright, as the first rays of the Red Sun
In the dawn.
Her lips painted with ruby lipstick,
her silk laced dress and shawl wrap around her,
Like a beautiful butterfly in her cocoon.
Her skin of olive, dark color and her green eyes.
My God, those sweet and piercing green eyes
Oh, how they hit my soul and make me shiver with excitment.
She is intoxicating and I am intoxicated in her beauty.

She is like an angel, a Latina beauty who walks the streets paved gold,
As I walk the cracked, cobblestone walkways.
She shines in the Spanish sun, like a dimoand in the ruff
As you blow the dust off her sweet brow,
she glows and sparkles with extordinary excellence.

She is beautiful and sweet and kind.
She loves me, but her father minds.
I am only a peasant, and she royalty.
Can our love ever be together in one holy matrimony?
I pray to the Lord, of all that is good,
Please give me a sign that she loves me.

Soon a storm came over,
blowing me down to the ground
And a cloud of dust swallowed me whole.
A great Conquistador on a great white stallion
pulled me up and told me that she wanted to see me.
I shacked with nervous of joy as I followed the warrior.

She was there, under a palm tree
Near a beautiful beach in Barcelona.
She smiled and a glow covered me with passion.
I hugged her and kissed her upon her sweet lips.
I tasted virginity and she tasted loyalty.
We both tasted beauty and harmony.
As the warrior left us,
We made love upon a vigin white sheet,
Soon covered with a flowing river of red.
She moaned with exticy and love was in the air.
The Ode to my sweet Spaniad, Mi Corazon!

We lay there in each others arms
Looking up at a clear night sky
The twilight glimmered ever so softly
And a shooting star blazed across the sky
I kissed her and she kissed me.
I whispered in her, "My love forever"
And she pushed me back upon the sheets
and we made sweet and ever lasting love again.
As we looked in each other's almond colored eyes.
I said to her, in a soft voice, Mi Corazon.

A Shady Tree

I know its the summer time because of how naturally 
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone 
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree

Arm Chair Traveler

Is it any wonder
that words plucked out of the air
cannot describe these common things?
Too often, heedless, what eyes
acknowledge as ordinary, is ours
to behold with brighter vision, a privilege to savor

The scenery surrounds every curve. Let us savor
each contrast, views that stab our wonder
grabbing our fervor.  An open road, and the world is ours!
This is a time of admiration, a breath of new air
that is stirred by beauty seen with new eyes.
Mountains, valleys, rivers, streams, wondrous things!

We who split devotion into two things
He who loves the highlands, or he whose passion may be a seaside savored.
Let our wheels and hearts take us far, where eyes
would spy a snow capped peak, where climbing trails would make one wonder
how the view must be from elevation, or how thin the air
How looking down upon the vast, an earth that's ours

Perhaps we'll see a mighty purple rise, while having our
first glimpse of the western sky.  While packing our things
let us not haste to travel on..let us linger, hold the vision, that takes air
from lungs, delay departure.  Savor
a picnic from the road, to dawdle, chat and wonder
where the next stop should find us, and what will feast our eyes

Where days are bright and the sun and breeze sting our eyes
Choosing to take the back road highways, our
wheels flying like wings over hills and valleys, and wonder
of all wonders....discovery delight in the smallest things,...
a seagull soaring above, a blue blue sky at his back, a sun to savor
Finding thrill from the damp foggy morning, or the sunshine and salty air

Perhaps a seaside village, so quaint and sweet, having an air
of vintage life. Or skycrapers meeting the modern day sky, which rise in amazement 
before eyes
The choices are unlimited, so much to savor
The choice to dream can be ours
There are no proper words to describe these things...
Is it any wonder?

A chance to breathe the air from a high mountain peak is ours 
A chance for eyes to feast on a wave or breeze of seaside things...
Close eyes, imagine them all, and be impelled to savor a world of wonder

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

                                       Sitting under my sun umbrella
                                    The ocean is my wonderful painting
                                     The sun shines on the small waves
                              Far in the distance I can glimpse a small boat


                                       I must have my sunglasses on
                       The sun heats I have shadow under my sun umbrella
                                    The sand on the beach is burning hot
                     The waves along the beach creates scratches in the sand

HAND IN HAND


It's a November
when I find myself walking 
My hand holding yours
Side by side arms swaying
Your little fingers interlocking with mine.
I believe it is a happy day.
I think it shows in your little sun-tanned face.
I feel it myself from deep within.
Slowly welling up like a spring of water
From a dry ground, long athirst.
I see the sun walking along gently in pace with us
Touching your brown nose and passing your limbs.
Blessing you with a soft radiance and blissful joy a child can only know.
Your school uniform lighter than cerulean sky 
Matching your gaiety, perfecting a mother-child moment.
Dotting the passing clouds with pure colors of your innocence and laughter.
Gigantic floating cotton balls of clouds
like stringed balloons; oh, please hold onto them, 
cease 'em before away they fly.
A moment to treasure when things aren't as happy as they should.
A many of this I pray to come,
A joyful carefree walk with my little boy;
Now, a mother's hand held by her small son.

RACHAB OF JERICHO

Deliberately inching its way toward break of day,
The morning sun begins to emblazon the barley field.
Relaxing and watching the orb find its way,
The lady of the house waits for night to yield.
Like every morning, she is seated there,
Enjoying the dew scented breeze on her veranda.
Feeling its coolness on her scalp while combing her hair,
And the warmth of the rising sun becoming grander.
Her mind wanders back to the city of her birth,
Just over the rise, beyond the barley field’s treasure,
Lies the city with the most famous name on earth,
Where, in her youth, she was a lady of pleasure.

To Rachab went all of Jericho’s possession,
By decree of God, for which Achan was stoned.
For this soldier could not control his obsession,
Though aware the city’s riches were God’s own.
With God’s grace, Rachab’s wisdom grew,
And she made the city’s outskirts her spread.
Her land into a field of grain did accrue,
A breadbasket from which hordes were fed.
Her hires were the finest laborers in the land
And were busy harvesting barley all spring.
She paid the very best wage to every man,
Cause her crop was the best early rains could bring.

The fields and glades, that gave her pasture form,
Seemed sensuous in every contour and rise.
At daybreak, contrasting tones were the norm,
Painted artfully by the brightening skies.
Mounds appeared convexly round breasts,
Lovingly sculpted over a span of human girth,
Whose beauty was able to put the heart to a test,
As the machinery of memory rotates the earth.
Babbling brooks flowed from shady nooks,
Giving refreshment to denizens of land and sky,
Producing a scene of green worthy of  picture books,
That not one skilled artist would dare deny. 

Gingerly she rose the doorway torch to quench,
Watching the shrinking darkness become shadows.
Rachab calmly returns to her veranda bench,
To observe butterflies dance above the meadows.
In her dreams, she envisions a more golden age,
When royalty would be attributed to her seed.
A zephyr flows over her mind turning the page,
But she still aspires the prospect of the throne to accede.
What a lovely story to behold just beginning to dawn,
Rising out yonder, just beyond the horizon of time.
How we yearn to see that age return, now long forgone,
So our hearts may once again be joyous and sublime.

Your Face Won't Crack



Woke up this morning to brilliant sunshine What a way to start the day My spirits couldn't be higher Old Mister Sol and I go back a way When he drops by, can't wipe off this grin From my very ancient mug Amazing how Sol can affect our moods As we wipe the sleep from our eyes Only happy thoughts fill our brains Could have just lost a bunch on the markets But we pick ourselves up Dust ourselves off And look forward to a brand new day A day filled with promise and opportunity So grab the brass ring And hang on for dear life There's bound to be good stuff just ahead Yes life is what you make it, my friends So smile damn it...

The Duchess Of Paradise

She's highly sophisticated and full of undefiled wisdom
Yet a crowned Duchess in a paradise kingdom
Quite a beautiful angel flying with black wings
Covered in gold jewelry and precious things
She dresses like the women of ancient Egyptian class
Her wealth is generous and her money grows like grass
She loves orange scented candles with dark room flame  
She rules thirty legions of soldiers and Bune is her name
Her comely warrior voice can wake and relocate the dead
Her armies of soldiers gather around the cemetery
She is brave and deserves a princessly crown on her head
Her facility of speech and flair for words is legendary
A beautiful queen to be treated with respect and honor
Instead of blasphemy,wanton abuse and fictional horror

A Pocket of Sun

Flying through gray clouds, visibility nil,
Then a pocket opens up, you feel a thrill.

A rays of sun filters it's brightness upon you.
Giving you hope that the skies will become blue.

Such a small thing, a bit of sun can spell relief.
On vacation you need sun to swim in the reef.

Standing on the sand, I'm looking up to the sky.
There are more sun rays than gray, my spirits are high.

IF ONLY I COULD CATCH THE SUN, ever so softly


I try to ignore the squirming Hyde within 
And, with effort still,
I raise myself for the last traces 
of sunshine and fun.
What was left of the day, I savor for me. 
As the withering leaves of silence
have perfected the petals of stillness,
A quietude.
Such absence of sound
Never a serenity to the mind.
Disturbing solitude haunts.
Loneliness seems vivid as reality speaks 
Even the poignant sadness never parts
Solitary confinement paints an art.

Like the spectator in a thousand theatre plays,
 I achingly wait for the final curtains to part.
Then, as always expected -  
Left were the 
    dancing curtains 
       together with the late sunset wind. 
Tiny golden flecks 
   imprinting on the soft white 
        laces and trims.
Catching shadow images 
    of the last rays of brilliance, 
         blending slowly in yellow embers,
              forming orange coals, 
                   turning into sunkissed glow 
                         of a sad goodbye. 
Then,
    ever so softly fading
           into dullness and cloudless cold. 


And as the night falls, 
its shadowy self dances 
against the moonlit music of silence.
I listen and search still 
   for what is left. 
No traces of the sun 
whose magnificence and radiance 
had touched the leaves of laughter 
during my daytime slumbering; children frolicking, 
    early had the mind sensing. 
And, gone astray were the seeds of kindness 
    the day had grown.
It seemed they were sown 
    by someone I wish I had known. 


If only I could frolic 
    where little lads had been early today - 
        in the meadows, 
           by the pond, 
              along the shores, 
                  around friendly trees and smiling flowers, 
                       with the meadowlarks and chirpy games, 
                               I’d give away anything.
Basking in the sun on such a lemony day, 
someone sulks to find it's an emotional burn. 


If only I could catch the loveliness of the sun, 
I'd give away anything. 
ANYTHING. 
Just for something this grand. 


The mind wills but the heart groans. 
A moment of joy and laughter, so fleeting.
Forgot me, gave away the troubles. 
Today could be A DAY,
If only, ever so softly,  I could catch the sun.

Together We Laugh

Together We Laugh
Walking slowly we see the little creatures in the ocean and the sand. Fish dart from 
spot to spot as the sea gulls glide above. Crabs rush along the shore looking to 
hide. Arms waving up at us we laugh and watch as they find their spot.
Together we play and have such fun. Laughter flows like music on the waves. Life 
here and now is like magic with treasures to offer and things to explore. We savor 
each moment and somehow know there will be more.
The sun is warm and the breeze is refreshing. We swim and play in the waves 
jumping each one and laughing. Waves splashing and the sun shining soon we 
notice some dolphins playing close by. What a sight to behold another moment to 
treasure as they too frolic and play!
As the sky fills with color we walk along the shore. Then suddenly I have found a 
treasure! A beautiful smooth green piece of glass washed ashore. We laugh and 
joke about the treasure I said I would find. The real treasure was how it made us 
laugh. The laughter still echoes in my mind. 
The moon feels alive as it lights the night showing us little fish swimming in the 
waves. The waves themselves seem to be aglow. We listen as they roar and 
somewhere a seagull calls out in the distance. Along the beach we see the star fish 
and tiny crabs scurry about in the night. We laugh at how funny they seem to be.
 I savor the beauty of those times we shared for such moments have brought such 
joy and laughter. The moments we spent with nature in childlike awe remain 
nearest and dearest. Today I still hear the laughter.
                                                                                        Debbie Knapp

Beauty in a Splash

Intense beating heart
Erratic yet fun motion
Flailing arms and legs
See the bright side in a fall
Wet and wild in the sunlight


Details | Ballade | |

It's here at last

It’s here at last

At last the spring is really here
The weather’s warm and sweet
The doves up in the seed trays coo
As so peacefully they eat
The fountain plays a melody
As wispy clouds up in the sky
 They form in me these images
As the morning passes by

Geraniums in their many hues
They shine out in the sun
The dog runs round with rubber bone
He’s having heaps of fun
The mulberry tree is so alive
She loved that winter rain
She knows as she grows her baby shoots
That the rain was not in vain.

The washing hanging on the hoist
Gives out such sweet perfume
One would think the gentle rose
Was close with tender bloom
Mauve hibiscus dances softly
Within the cooling breeze
And all of this portrayed together
It gives my mind such ease.

My Beautiful Penelope

Oh my sweet and beautiful Penelope
Oh how beautiful you are, and when I see you come down
to the pearl gates of immortality and come down to see me,
as we join hands and walk the shorelines
I see you my beautiful Penelope, she you who walks through beauty,
We shall join in immortality.
Your heart built of stone and paved in golden
you born out of the beauty of a rose and maturity of a lady
you are the one who never sings a depressing and low melody.

My Beautiful Penelope,
The one beautiful lady form Napoli
Oh, how you walk in such glory.
See me look over you and hear my heart beat
for you, I love you, see me for I care about you.
Take it from me, for I shall take you by the hand
and as our shadows rise to meet us in the morning
I can make love to you, then we shall love the night away.
My beautiful Penelope, as I take you through the twilight
we dream of shooting stars falling from the evening skies,
as we hold each other close,
take me and I shall take you and bring each other together,
and fuse us together with a sweet and loving kiss.

She is my beauty and I love her
she takes me by the hand and curels me to her warm chest.
Cares for me,
Makes me laugh,
Makes me feel good and uplifts my soul
everytime I lay my almond eyes upon her beauteous body.
My beautiful Penelope, oh how I see the glory in your blue eyes,
your luxurious, long flowing hair colored golden
like the rays of the morning sun.

Dare to care
about such beauty in her eyes?
Dare to care
about such beauty in her cries,
as she tells me of her suicide struggles?
I hold you close to me
and I hope you to be
my love for all eternity.
See me and I see you to tell me about you and your day,
as you come home and say,
That you love me.
And I shall say I love you too,
with a zealous attitude in my voice
I shall take you into our room and you shall tell me about your day.
You shall tell me, under the shadows of the trees, the houses, the red rocks.
I shall show you love in a handful of roses,
deliver you a bouquet of roses and violets,
as we see the breeding lilacs grow tall,
we shall lay in the grasslands and look up at the clouds,
that shape themselves into beautiful paintings in the glorious blue sea
we call the sky.

Oh My beautiful Penelope
my glorious maiden lady,
who sings such beauty in her melody
that it brings tears to nightingales' eyes.
My beautiful Penelope, you are my love
here are a dozen roses for you to express and show my love for you,
my beautiful Penelope.
Love is eternal with you.

September Weather

Ah, the september weather is here,
the trees turn firery red and orange,
and the leaves gently fall to the surface.

Fall is here,
and the grass turns from green to yellow,
the souls of many change their ways.

From going on beaches in sun
to walking on wet streets,
with jackets on.

September weather is here,
too most it is depressing to see,
such change in the world.

But I love it.
The girlfriends and boyfriends go away,
and that makes me happy.
Then I go apple picking.

I pick red apples,
from low, hanging apple trees.
and I eat one, while walking down the trail.

Fall is here,
the time of death,
the last of sunshine.

I don't argue,
I love fall,
it is so cosy and it gives me hope.

Hope that a day will come again,
when the sun pops its head out
and the warmth returns.

September weather is the best,
when summer is gone, but not quite,
and the cool breeze sweaps through your open windowpane.

I love fall,
it gives me hope,
that with death comes life.

The Defiant Tree

Oh, natures tree, how are you blooming, When Winter is arriving so coldly? With colors so vibrant, how do you reflect the dimming light, so boldly? Were you confused by the sun that rises too early, or conflicted by the manipulation Of season? Or defiant, to natures authority, and just decided to create Your own reason? Buds blooming, with a brilliant color. . Branches Reaching to skies with absent sun rays; Surrounded by browning and wilting Life; Yet your brilliance, Your beauty, and Loveliness stays? Oh, Valiant tree, why bloom now? When all that's Left here is the rain? Darkly tinted shades Of grey, Dying life Laid at your roots. . And yet, you're blooming All the same. Your golden hints of Sunshine Though clouds fill The sky . . Your branches' room For lovely birds, And yet, they all have Passed you by? And still you bloom, Defiantly. Growing with nothing But self desire, Detesting before, As natures core, But my soul Will forever admire

Happiness 101



Well here we are At the start of a brand new day The sun is shining, the boidies is singing What more is there to say! As I look outside Some dark clouds are on the way But don't you worry, I'll just sing a song To chase all those clouds away! My words are clear There is nothing more to say Blue skies up above, a feeling the love Yet another fun filled day! Guess this can get A bit over the top as they say But being happy can be a lot of fun Sadness will fly way! People always ask me How come I'm upbeat each day It really is quite simple dear friends Attitude's the answer I say! Well here we are At the start of a brand new day The sun is shining, the boidies is singing What more is there to say! © Jack Ellison 2013

In Bloom

Written July 29, 2013


The wind blows the rainbows down
Turns your frown upside down
Then spins it back around

The sun hides the moon
Underneath its coat in bloom
The flowers came late this June

The rain in a teardrop
Falls like dew from a leaf
When she looks at me

See that look upon her face
Used to take her to the stars
Now she's headed back from Mars

Now that Venus loves her more
Wouldn't throw her to the floor
Like before

My Love Intended

My love intended for the girl of my dreams,
she walks from side to side,
not knowing that I walk alone.

She is beautiful than any other thing in this simple world,
everything around her shakes and trembles
as she walks on by without a spare of a passing glance.

The wine is drunk
the last cigarette smoked,
the pain of heartache gone away.

It feels good to see her go my way,
to take the pain with her away from me,
as I sit in the wayward cafe on the river of ashes.

A beautiful girl she is mine,
but that course of life shall no surpass mine,
and my heart beats and takes me away
in hope of falling in love.

Irony of love and hate,
it is similar in many ways,
as I sit and think of her.

She angers me,
but when the vail of anger falls over my eyes,
the passion of love enters my mind.

Come now, take me away,
hold me in your beauty,
and love me with your gentle body.

Go into the gardens,
where the nightingales sing,
and sit at the patio's crossway.

Watch the artists paint pictures of the garden,
watch the writers write about the garden,
and watch us go and pick flowers in the garden.

The air smooth and wind breeze calms the nerves,
the pain of my sorrowed heart is soothed,
by her sweet intellegence and beauty.

Her eyes, orbs of blazing sunlight,
blind me with the beauty of her beauteous face,
her lips and skin smooth and pure.

She is glorious,
My love she is the dream girl,
who comes and takes my nightmares away from me.

As I sit on the park benches,
I light my last cigarette,
and reminicse on the days with my love.

I close my tired eyes only for a moment,
and the moment is gone,
my beauty is gone.

The tears are all gone,
the pain has gone,
the feelings of everlasting love are all gone.

Where did it all go?
Where did my beauty go?
Where did my love go?

All gone now, all gone now,
as I grow old,
the feeling of death takes me by surprise.

The park bench is cold,
the cigarette is burnt out,
I am longing for a drink.

I lay in a wayward cafe
drink a coffee and talk to myself
discussing a book of poetry.

Looking over to the right
I am blinded by beauty once again
this time this is no dream.

Alas, my dream girl came
that appeared in my sunny pleasure dome,
who has walked barefoot in the gardens of my mind.

She sat with me,
I looked at her
and we smiled together.

We held hands together,
and dreamed together,
forever and ever.

Love everlasting,
everything everlasting,
cigarettes smoked together.

A cloud over our heads
in the shape of a heart
my love.

Ocean Blue

The ocean is so alluring it calls out to you in a
way you can't re sit and you don't want too.
It draws many to it's beach side where many walk
bare foot in it's warm sand and stand letting the
waves splash across them.
Children building sand castles, the sea gulls flies
high over head in the cloud less sky, bodies of
different shapes and sizes lines it shore, many with
sun umbrellas, beach towels, laying in the 
warm sun getting a suntan, bodies as far as the eyes 
can see.

The ocean is where many go to watch the sun rises, the
sun sets, lovers walking hand in hand on the warm summer
sand beneath their feet, kissing, hugging, laughing, running
just having fun.
Night time comes way to quickly for many but many stay
and watch the sun set and the moon raising high in the clear
dark sky above it's light  shinning down on the water making
it look like a shinning gleaming diamond, and like glass that
could break any second.

There Was Such A Day

Waters clad in diamond sun light
Stretched as far as the eye could see
Waves frolic at edge of white sand
My feet dance on sand castle dreams

Stretched as far as the eye could see
Ocean beckons me softlly, come
My feet dance on sand castle dreams
Come share my warmth; golden laughter

Ocean beckons me softly, come
Blue waters seek to bath my toes
Come share my warmth; golden laughter
Sycamore and pine whispered go

Blue waters seek to bath my toes
Trail blazer's smiles, tease my senses
Sycamore and pine whispered go
Shells and seagulls played hide and seek

Trail blazer's smiles, tease my senses
Some walk hand in hand, some embrace
Shells and seagulls played hide and seek
A day filled with golden treasures 


Some walked hand in hand some embrace
Waters clad in diamond sun light
I stayed to write on this glad day
Waves frolic at edge of white sand

Sleepily

the Father visits his son in the dark of day
The son is abed, pale in the light of night
For the sun and moon are witness in this hour of twilight
But the sun is not heat and does not shine as bright
And the moon is not rigid rock
The sun is a warm hope, fading ever so slightly
The moon is softness, the dark is soothing

The son is abed, covers sprawled over his listless form
The son is restless, he doth not sleep
The son is ebbing, his heart does weep
and his Father lifts the covers up tight around his chest
and kisses his brow;
The son blinks wearily, smiles wanly, whimpers meekly

Sleep my son, the Father whispers

But I cannot sleep - Sleep eludes him
I want to play - Rest prances about him
close enough to want, just out of reach
And how can I sleep father? - How can he rest atop this fated bed?
When I wish to wake? - When his heart doth weep restlessly?

the Father wavers, he caresses the son's brow, but not his heart
For the heart is within, the caress without,
Rest my son, he says, rest and forget
The Father, gently, lovingly, pulls the covers up, tight around the son's neck

But father, father why
My heart will not sleep
Five more minutes? Just five.

Sleep son, the hour is late, the time is neigh

And the Father, always lovingly, he pulls the covers tight over the son, and lowers him into 
the ground.

That there's a saying,
''Hope you will be enjoying''.

Just another day

Mornings brilliance
lets the sun spread it’s grin
Slowly warming the beds
awakening the flowers
as they raise their heads
birds chorus dawns delight
melancholic tunes contrite
Nature’s charms begin to stir
Doors slam shut and engines whirr
A shout of ‘Hello’, or ‘Good morning dear’,
Friendly waves and nods of cheer
Then traffic jams and people queue
Paper stands sell the daily news
Off to work the adults go
mums to school with kids in tow
A lovely day is off to start
Fulfilled with joy ‘till sun departs.

YESTERDAY HAS GONE BY

I believe that yesternight has gone by,
And this is another day, 
A brand new day,
A very beautiful one.

All I could see is the rising of the sun,
with its beauty and energy,
Ready to beautify, 
And illuminate this day. 

All I wish is to be like this sun unto you,
lighten up your angelic face to a lovely smile,
And a source of encouragement to launch you, 
Higher unto greater achievement.

Conversation with the Sun

I arose upon a morning, where the sun has used a brighter voice
A change in tone, with softer words, and has dusted off his better mood
The sun has said, 'good morning' and now I have a better choice  
I'll sweep the doldrums, with the breeze, and shoo the clouds that brood

Early dawn was washed anew, and met the sun with drops of rain
to sweep the cobwebs from my brain, and clear the day ahead
It is not that I will grumble, with thoughts that dim the sun again…
Chores, for once, can wait awhile, while rainbows clear my head

I look outside the window ledge, and like what I can see
Those gloomy clouds are breaking up, while I sip a cup of tea
The frown upon my forehead, which was such a part of me
has disappeared, soothed away, like sunshine through the trees

The colors of a rainbow’s view, now chases blues away
The sun peeks in to say "adieu", and brightens up my day

SUMMER

Sun warmed the noon air, as
Umbrellas gave a shade to girls in bikinis.
Marvel of nature was visible with ocean waves
Made, as they moved with vigor. 
Everyone around the scene had something worth
Remembering, for the rest of their lives!

The Call of the Swan

A night so cold
Though spring has sprung
Winter so bold
Refuse to run.

Deployed my wings
Wide, gleaming white
Destiny sings
My mate to find.

Flew through showers
Blown about, caught
By strong currents
Of wind so bold.

Rested at night
By ponds and creeks
To avoid plight
Of hungry beasts.

I remember
My parents' love
Their wise lectures
The song they sung.

Yet my heart weeps
For the one I see
In all my dreams
My song won't cease.

As my Father
Found its soul mate,
My sweet Mother
So will I, one day.

I'll fear no night
I'll fear no storm
With the sun I rise
Till light's no more.

Until the day
As I follow the sun 
Above clouds of gray
The same song is sung.

For only one
Can sing the same
And I will know
That I found my mate.

Under the African Skies

I stand gazing across the vast plains of Africa
Plains empty of man-made monsters, 
Filled only with God’s beauty and grace

The stillness of the beauty fulfills me
I inhale deeply filling my lungs with the pure air-The air is sweet and refreshing, 
The smell of life, brought only by the heavenly rain on our African soil
I watch the sun take its place, casting away the clouds
As the dark clouds tumble away, the sky is filled with the beautiful spectrum of light,
My eyes feast on the mesmorising colours of the rainbow-This is the symbol 
Of God’s promise to Africa
As I gaze at this colourful ghost of life I realize 
The true pot of gold of this rainbow is Africa.

I kneel on the soil, running it through my fingers, 
Each grain like a diamond and me the diamond digger
I close my eyes feeling the warm breeze blow through my hair
It carries the messages of all the creatures
Telling stories of the battles of the plains,
Those conquered, those lost and those still to come
It is the breeze of life, the life force that fills every living creature, connecting us all as one

As I shout out to the heavens the land is filled with my voice, 
Echoing like the deep thunder of the skies
I hear the calls of birds across the plains, a vast network of communication
I see a herd of antelope running and leaping through this maze of beauty

I start to run, sprinting until I no longer can
I stare into the face of the African sun as it bleeds to death, painting a red smile 
Across the glowing orange sky
Until, darkness
The night sky is illuminated with Africa’s sparkling jewels, 
The great kings of our past, watching over us and
Guarding our blessed lands

I lay back and close my eyes
The silence of the plains is a symphony to my ears,
Every individual blade of grass creating its own unique sound to the choir of Africa, Singing 
the songs of angels, 
Calling us home

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING

Shush be calm, it’s okay I’m right here,
You’re hugging my pillow and shedding a tear

You have my memory and I feel your heart,
Always forever till death do us part.

We’ll always have Paris and the empire state building
Watching the Bulls and the yankees out fielding 

But there’s nothing like kissing and the shared living touch,
and the holding of hands that we loved so much.

The smell of your perfume at the end of a day
Knowing that just before work we had shower play

Making love in the moon light the sun and the rain
The memories of beach the car and the plane

Running naked through sand dunes and chasing the sun
Naked moon bathing naming stars just for fun

It was always and only about just you and me,
And it always and shall be for eternity.

 Please don’t go just yet I have something to say
Then you can let my balloon float away

I thought I knew love and knew what to do
But it all went so wrong when I met you

My wires got crossed an my thinking went wonky
My smarts all went south on a pantomime donkey

But now that I’m gone I don’t want you to worry
I don’t want you to rush to get here in a hurry

It’s all down to you now to play and explore
Before you join my photo in our sons bottom draw

Thank you for sharing your life and your love
I’ll be watching you always from the blue skies above

From the wind in your hair to the moon in your eyes
 From the warmth of the sun and the sea and the skies

Feel loved and not spied on, I want your sprit to fly
I can’t live with the thought of making you cry.

Pleasure Is

Pleasure is.
So sweet the seasons sounds,
That makes for those summer days.
Skies make for a back drop of hues of blue,
Sweet mowing grass now sheared as hay.

Upon my face the beads of perspiration,
As I wipe my fevered brow.
The days now long as I swing forth the scythe,
High above the sun beats down.

A shout breaks my concentration,
For it is Mary who is my love.
Under a large oak tree she shelters,
Truly a pure vision from above.

For with her a wicker basket,
Its contents now lay out before.
She beckons me come forward,
Asl my senses cry out for more.

In her tender arms my head gently lies,
Beneath a canopy of green.
 Dappled sun light highlights her flowing hair,
For the world id trade, for these moments gleaned.

A Date

Rushing through lusty August towards
A vault of blue, a longing promise.
It is like waiting for the visiting moon,
The day when the silver light shimmies past
My bedroom curtains, and I will look up
And I will feel the burning of the heart.
Mist will pour down from the Sun
And the same mist will fall from my mouth.
I will no longer be in need and
It will all sliver pass me.

Dear Love of Mine

Dear love of mine
I will wait til the end of time
Searching through worlds for you
The sun is going down 
Tomorrow will bring me you
Sunlight slips through your hair
Catching the curve of your smile
Where has time taken you
Gone from me
Lost for now
Meet me at dusk 
Up on the willows bow
That’s where I wait for you now
Don’t fret love of mine 
We will find each other in good time
The sun is setting now 
Darkness encircles my world
But your smile makes it bright
These shadows cannot kill your light
Tomorrow will bring our love anew
If there is no tomorrow 
I know our love does not die in sorrow

Upon this Christmas Day

He sleeps there in a stable
The babe born to the world
Both mother, father watch with care

Though swaddled in a cloth
He is born, yet, to be king
With but just rags for Him to wear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

For within the early morning
Angels brought the sky a voice
Calling forth those who wish to hear

Along then, came all others
Knowing truth within their hearts
That all now have nothing to fear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Go forth and tell all others
Who had no chance to hear
The news of hope and of the joy

Let them know the Gift of God
That comes to save us all
His son sent as this little boy

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

The heavens declare

The heavens declare God’s glory

As the body without the spirit is dead
So too the moon is dead 
It has no light of its own
Without the light of the sun 
She cannot shine and give light
In the darkness

So too as the sun rises
In newness each day
So too shall the moon
Rise in newness of light
Reflecting the Glory
Of The SUN/SON 

Like a whirling dancer
The heavens swirl
And sway dressed 
In her skirt of stars 
To the lyrical rhythm
The musical beat 
Of The word of life

Spring

The sun touches me and the cold leaves from within.
I smell the good clean earth beneath my feet again.
The ground isn’t frozen. It feels so fertile once more.
The wind kisses my skin with warmth I want to store.
It’s still very chilly around here late at night.
But the beauty of the sun has begun to be just right.
I see the tips of new growth, springing up everywhere.
At last I leave my winter lair, for I have much to prepare.
A shower is coming tomorrow. I must hurry to set my plants.
But first I must rake the old leaves, left from winter’s rants.
My dogs stay close beside me to sniff the new tilled earth.
Even the smallest animals, rejoice in spring’s rebirth.
The images that beseech me as I leave this old house…
Are young, fresh, and with their colors I’ll soon be doused.
As the heavens begin to open and again bless this land…
My mind opens to see, the touch of God’s own hand.

Sunshine Of You Love

I bask in your sunlight 
As I lay upon the shore 
Of your tranquil sea

Your love shines down upon me
Warming my skin 
And energizing my soul

Your cool sweet breath 
Stimulating my senses
As I watch the waves gently bow
And lay themselves at your feet.

Flora and fauna 
Rejoice in your glory
As they dance and sing 
In honor of your presence

Sand and shells 
Reflect the brilliance of your smile 
Across the expanse, 
of an endless summer sky.

As I lay here gazing 
Into your infinite beauty 
I feel my spirit ascend,

Carried away on thermals 
Created by your passion
As my mortal body is absorbed 
Into the moist sand, 

And I become one 
With all that you are.

Nighttime Wonders

There is a place,
a magical wonderland
that sits at the end of your mind,
and everybody dead and living
goes there when they are tired.
It is a place that is special
and is diffrent to stand to your approval.
It is a nighttime wonder
only open from eleven to five
and you can only come,
if you truely believe.

It is a place
where the streets are paved gold,
peace runs through every corner and avenue,
no jails, no hospitals
because there is no crime and no sickness.
The skies are always blue,
and the clouds are all white,
the sun is blazing hot
and the woman all give you a wink of an eye
and all blow you kisses,
where the men want to be you,
and where the women want to sleep with you.
It is a nighttime wonder,
a special place,
in the back of your mind.
It is real, not imaginary,
nothing is fake about this place,
this is where dreams come true,
where there are no cancers, headaches, toothaches,
no wars, no enemies, no hangovers,
no schools, no politicians, no lawyers, no greed,
no sin, no temptation, no demons or devils;
everything is beautiful, and everything grand.

A piece of Heaven on Earth.
Everyone is happy,
all with a smile on their face,
not a frown in sight.
Songs are sung with the most beautiful of voices
and the sweetest of songs sung.
This place is a nighttime wonder.

When you tuck yourself under the sheets,
grab your pillow, or girlfriend, or boyfriend
husband or wife, or even your favorite stuffed friend,
we all go to this special nighttime wonderland.
A place of joy, a place of happiness,
a place where you go to forget
and enjoy,
a mini vacation.
Till that alarm clock's annyoing buzz comes on
and pulls you out of that nighttime wonder
and places you back into reality.

Tomorrow, make us forget yesterday.

SUN!!keep Shining on me

I look at the huge big sky
There is no white clouds, no gray rain
It keeps her yellow shine, her baby blue color
No matter how powerful I'm , it makes me wane

I look at the sun , It shining on me
I  challenge it to the limits of my power
But in the end, what a weak person I'm
When the sun shines ,it's always the winner

The rainy day comes and take my sun away
The sun gives me the power to shine instead
The night comes and takes the rain away
I ask the sun, will you shine on me after getting up from the bed?!

I'm so energetic, I'm full of curiosities
When my sun shines on me again
Would you please keep shining on me?
Even when it snows, even when it rains?

Sunny, Please Don't disappear from me
keep shining my way with your light
I want you to always encourage me
With your warm heat, with your yellow bright

You

Before you came into my life, the sun shined, the breeze blew, the birds flew, and 
people mingled. Day after day, I witnessed life's splendor through my window. I had 
an urge one day to venture outside my captor. The sun still shined, the breeze still 
blew, the birds still flew, people still mingled, and I was life's spectator. Suddenly, 
then came you, you entered my life like the sunlight that interrupts the dark, like the 
music that fills the silence, like the supernova that brightens the sky. Our hearts 
spoke an inaudible language that only two lonely souls know; thus, faith has 
become our liberator. Now, we are inseparable. As we frequently strolled through 
the ravine, the sunlight paraded her beauty laminating our path, birds gracefully 
glided through the air as if they were been choreograph, the summer breeze burst 
with fragrance caressing our souls, and consequently we became a part of the 
cosmos. like a well-deserved gift that is torn from one's arms, so is my heart, faith 
has torn us apart. Instead now, we are kindred spirits separated by distance, so, I 
retreat to the familiar to witness life's splendor. The sun shines, the breeze blows, 
the birds fly,and people mingle.

The Boidies Is Singin'



Well here we are At the start of a brand new day The sun is shining, the boidies is singin' What more is there to say! As I look outside Some dark clouds are on the way But I surely won't worry, I'll just sing a song To chase all those clouds away! My words are clear There is nothing more to say Blue skies above, a great feeling the love Yet another fun filled day! Guess this can seem A bit over the top as they say But being happy is a whole lot more fun Your problems will fly way! People always ask me How come you're upbeat every day It's really amazingly simple my dear friends Attitude's the answer I say! Well here we are At the start of a brand new day The sun is shining, the boidies is singin' There ain't nothin' more to say! © Jack Ellison 2013

In the Woods

In the woods the shadows fade

as the sun falls away

the darkness hides the trees inside

the woods come alive.


Hear the sounds the owls make

as they hunt for their sake.



Scattering feet running to hide

little mice trying to fly

the owls are hungry,its their time

to eat and scare the shadows inside.


Now the sun is opening up

the darkness fades and the light shines

the owls sleep and all is safe

for the mice are scampering all around

pleased to know they are safe and sound.

Sunshine and Rain

Sunshine and Rain Life is a mixture Of sunshine and rain. Joy in the morning Can give way to an evening of pain. We don’t know what’s around the corner Or what tomorrow will bring. Whether the sun will shine in the morning, Or the birds will fail to sing. When the sun is rising, It kisses the ocean waves, But it can turn on a Tsunami And send thousands to watery graves. Each day can bring forth laughter, Or it can bring forth tears. Whether the sun will shine or it will rain, Has nothing to do with the days or years. Each day we’re faced with comparisons; Life’s filled with the bitter and the sweet. There’s not a soul exempted From the pain or pleasure we meet. We may think that others have it easy, But we cannot see their load. Only the Lord knows each one’s troubles, And the hardships on their road. Whether your life’s filled with sunshine Or whether it’s filled with rain, Only focus on what’s beautiful, Not hardships and their stain. Try to see it as a comfort That trouble visits us all. Thank God for your blessings, When the sunshine or rain do call! Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

Cruel Reality

Cruel Reality, watching so closely,
like a motionless tiger, lying in wait.

We were so safe in our Dream bubble,
so unaware of the cold world outside.

The sun shone so brightly upon the green field,
and together we danced, laughingly, carefree.

But jealous Reality, clothed in red dress,
gazed at our joy, and then gleefully screamed,

"I'll take your bright sun and replace it with rain;
your green grassy field will become a gray swamp.
Every sweet word that you both have spoken
shall now melt away, leaving nothing behind."

So the walls of our love were quickly torn down,
and Reality quickly swept us apart.

Your Love Is My Eternal Dream

Your love cuts through me, this power controlling me is surreal
not realizing the buttons you push, and how you make me feel
an inner beauty unmarred, like a magnet, you drew me so close
mere sight of you was my healing, like vitamin C, my double dose 
 
Take my hand and I'll show you, a world where you've never been 
it is a perfect world, a world no one has ever seen, absent of sin
eyes to glimpse pure angels of light, as bright as the sun at midday
above space and beyond time, where unhappiness has no sway 
 
Then I awoke and came to find, behold, it has all been but a dream
misled thinking we were in that realm, the realm of the supreme
reminded once again, with a heavy heart, that to love it takes two
but all I have found is a temporary escape, a lost love I once knew
 
remembering the tenderness of your voice, fond memories I did recall
running barefoot that night, hand in hand, with your rain soaked shawl
as the sun rose it revealed the beauty in your eyes, and then I could see
how captivated I was by your smile, waiting for your lips to set me free
 
I'm a prisoner of your love, a love that has me bound, it was meant to be 
trying to free myself, chained by this sole desire, if you would now see
a chance to pledge my love, a love that only now made me understand
a way to become your soul partner, and enabling me to finally withstand

Release me from the confines of a lonely heart, and let those memories renew
days of the past give new life and meaning, with my love, for no one but you
so let the stars and moon be witnesses, for this pact that we will now forever make
and then once again I will close my eyes and dream, my love to never again forsake

The Growth Of A Wildflower (Composed by Evin Brown For Me)

All through the young years of one Wildflowers life, she had been introduced to all the 
darkest colors. Even when the wind picked her up and carried her away the shady colors 
followed. And then, rain. And the rain did not stop as it danced against her colorful and 
majestic petals.
The Wildflower was sad, and her condition was deepening. Instead of the dark colors 
leaving, they would fade. Showing what the Wildflower could attain, teasing her as she felt 
helpless while the shade played it's games. The Wildflower began to wilt.
But the Wildflower is strong and little did she know, all her life the sun was coming to stop 
the rain and bring the brighter colors. All the things she dreamt of were on there way.
The Wildflower never lost hope, and when the sun arrived, she perked up and stared in to 
his face to take in all his warmth and comfort. She stood in an amazing array of beauty and 
fantasia of colors. Nothing you could ever see is as beautiful or ever will be. This is truely 
spectacular.

No struggle can change the fantasia that is named Taylor Jenkins.

High Cloud

High Cloud

High cloud, high cloud, where are you going?
You seem determined to go where ever the wind’s blowing,
High cloud, high cloud, where will you go, 
While the sun sets and the shadows grow,
You’ve had a long day
You’ve came a long way
Drifting through the air, are you a castaway?
You provide beauty
You provide reason
You’re forever changing, as are the seasons
You hold a silent faith,
You serve a quiet purpose,
With nothing more to offer than what’s on your surface,
You amuse children,
Leave adults in awe,
You affix your grace where ever you are,
High cloud, high cloud, where are you going?
You’re fearless to go where ever the wind’s blowing,
High cloud, high cloud, where will you go,
Once the sun sets, and the shadows grow

Before Retiring

Goosebumps rise along my legs.
The sun belies the chilly breeze.
The summer sun is slowly setting.
I hear the droning of the bees.

Peaceful and serene , this night.
Curled up to watch the setting sun.
Colours start to paint the sky.
No night more lovely than this one.

Leaves gently bouncing in playful sway.
A glorious evening is this.
I am so thankful for all I have.
For nature's beauty... and your kiss.

Nights like this are meant to be shared.
No words need to be said.
We watch the night sky darkening
before retiring to our bed.

Sunrise after the Storm


Storm had passed and new sun arise
Flower blooms in April morning
Sordid mind had been cleansed up
All doors that had been closed are now open
The silence has been break free
Love has been shielded me from pain
Stains has been washed out
Beautiful dreams awake me at night
Good things are coming like beautiful mornings
It visit me through all these days
Standing still to make anew of the past
Loving and learning is what I hold to last
A new sun appears to make a new beginning….

Set You Free

Set You Free
12/12/12
By: Sami LaRose

When the sun rises amongst the clouds who is there to see it?

2:51am and I cannot believe it.

A glowing beam of yellow light emerges from the sky of clouds  so bright.

Is this a sign that all hope is not lost

For such a long time I'd thought I would  be better off in the dark

But as the clouds open up in a pathway of two

It makes me realize how much less I think of you.

The sun smiles brightly, and beats down on my arm.

It is almost as if she is signing me a little song 

"Be happy, be bright, be yellow, stay mellow" she says to me 

And she raises up higher to be amongst the trees

As I lay there under the old beautiful weeping willow 

It's nice to know that I am letting you go.

The sun shines so brightly and suddenly turns into snow, free falling at last no more disaster

Maybe it finally is my happily ever after

Beautiful Dreams

I don't mean a thing to you
but baby all I can do 
is sit here and wait for you
before I had met you
my life was filled with sad clouds 
but then you rose in my life
like the sun rises in the sky
and you made my life brighter 
along with my love for you tighter
but then you look back and walk away
making even my heart cry
I fall on my knees 
and see you running back to me
I stood up and you hugged me and kissed me 
the sun was finally set free
being no one near that we could see
we thought everyone had gone away
to let us alone there to stay
I looked up and saw an angle over us
whispering, “You two were meant to be.”

Volatile Weather

When the sun shines
Ablaze and about to burst
Flames touch the tips of trees
Igniting them with shock
Bursts of excruciating contentment descends
Directing me with the courage for tomorrow
Pools of depraved memories wane
The lines of sorrow die out in the air
When the sun shines
 
When the sun hides
Unexpected clouds tumble in to color the sky ashen
Casting the shower of days gone by upon your appearance
Puddles rematerialize with a commanding poise
The reverberations of a virtuous day
Days comparable to these are when I finish most dreadful
Ambition wearing out of my body
When the sun hides

The saga of the dusty road

The Saga of dusty roads of Utah 
(To the memory of Don W. Esplin, father of Kathryn Esplin-Oleski)
= =
There he was playing with some mild explosives, 
in his own backyard, a resolute boy he is; 
the June month had swelled like the taut belly of 
a neighborhood lady; the boy wanted to be 
a scientist which he became. He, of course could not 
envision that all these sepia dust of Utah, 
the noon backyard and a young scientist’s narrative 
would be remembered by his explosive daughter 
and a strange Indian was going to pen a saga. 

Alfred Nobel was smiling from a page of a book 

The boy rolled a cigarette, the smoke’s curlicues 
swirl up to grain the picture. A blast almost choked
the bright blue jays and robins. Defused sun slanted.
The end of the road was just an end of the road 
where sun could meet earth, warm grass shook off the heat 
and the covert window of the farm house would yield 
a father and son talk. Strong argument on
future, on an university, on money 
on a world that could differ in generations;
of course the boy, as a father, understood 
his girl, then living apart. But distance is in heart.
He would grow up midst dreams. A quirky wind would blow him 
here and there; navy, marriage and science, 
pharmacology and marriage again; a gust
of wind would take him on a ride that, if he could 
read this he would have said, resembled his truck rides 
down the roads of Utah. But at that point of time
he was wide awake inside his misty night’s sleep 
and an American novel is shooting up 
its multiple heads in search of fresh oxygen. 
The waves of moon were enjoying a full tide.

The words of a sinners drunken pen

Take me to where the sun is bright and 
where my eyes can see even in the night.
A delight to indulge in heavenly beauty may not be free,
 but oh lord alter the price for me.
This world that I dwell in is full of sin,
which impedes out efforts to win.
Gold,silver and the finest jewels couldn't compare to the greatness within,
that I fell so near in times of despair.
A  feeling that I dear not compare.
The snare of the devil is near.
His power is strong, but not as strong as my superior. 
Therefore his tricks can never make me inferior.
So my eyes is so well connected to the virtuous path.
As I realizes what lyes within my self.
The keys to power,mercy and help.As I embrace all that is good I understand who i am and who I can be. I can see the sweet picture like candy.
I can see the land were blades of grass point
 aggressively towards the divine sun.
I can hear the land where trees of wise old age sing beautifully,
when the gentle breeze brush against an olive tree.
A sound that calms the sinners cry.A place where there is no sudden death,corruption and pain,but just peace.Never the least,take me to where the sun is bright and where my eyes can see even when its night.

Lazy Day

(A Children's Poem)

I sit on the bank
and dangle my toes
in the cool waters of the stream
I lie back and close my eyes
feel the wind caress my face
and allow myself to dream

While the grass cushions me
I listen to the birds sing
and the water rippling past
I feel the butterfly on my arm
and I think to myself
I only wish this could last

I open my eyes
watch the clouds floating by
hear the buzzing of the bees
and, as I lie there
I whisper a prayer
make this day last, please

The sun sets over Istanbul
The days are so warm 
The nights quite cool
We walk along the bospheros
Hand in hand

To make your dreams come true
The people are so friendly
The people really care
Go and visit Turkey

Sunset Lake

On the pier, looking out,
The lake is waving all about.
The sun is setting,
Pink and orange colors, the lake is getting.
I watch the colors glistening,

The sun just touched the lake,
Did you hear the sizzle that it makes?
Watching the final colors slowly fade away,
A peaceful ending to a busy day.

WALKING ALONG THE BEACH

Walking along the beach on a Saturday morning
I can see the sun smiling from the horizon
The weather is cool and the water is calm
I can feel the gentle hands of sea breeze caressing my face
There are so many people doing different activities
Men and women lying in their shorts and bikinis ready for sun bathing
Young boys and girls in the water swimming and having fun
Little kids on the beach building castle of sand
The dogs are running around barking wildly in excitement
Where ever i look i see beautiful people with smile on their pretty faces
Life seems so perfect just walking along the beach on a Saturday morning.

Home Sweet Home

This craggy valley lies in the west
My home, this place I love the best
So many seasons passed our way
Since first we came one Autumn day
These ancient trees, these gentle slopes
So young we were, so filled with hope
No spot I love like this on earth
My children grew, this place from birth
How often beneath the boughs they've played
On summer days in the peaceful shade
The giant oaks shake by autumn's mellow breeze
And in the winter's storm shed brown, rust leaves
To view Mount Shasta's snow capped peaks
Will cheer my thoughts when days are bleak
Majestic glory, so serene
Guards over valleys, rust and green
Not far away, a stream flows swift
It fills the heart, sends cares adrift
Each grove of trees, each hill and mound
Still seems to be enchanted ground
Of scarcely moving seedling grass
It waves in sun like shining glass
Where summits rise both high and steep
And rocky valleys vast and deep
When heavens black and thunder roars
The rain in torrents, downward pours
When the sun breaks through clouds, on mountain tops
And skies are filled with spring raindrops
We're blessed to live the country life
Far off from city, noise and strife
God, help me not to take for granted
My home, this gift which I've been handed.

Blue Sky

It’s a bright sunny day
The clouds are all gone
They’ve moved out of the sun’s way

No worries, no pain, only love
Plays with my soul this moment
Happiness fills my heart like a glove.

Come out and play with me
We’ll bask under the bright sky
We can laugh, play, and be free.

cantor of chaos

night cantors into the mind,
a sable tail paints blackness to the eye
sky nymphs straddle the moon... singing

spider sprints across the faceless dream
soul woven in silky-slick yesterday
bike bells,pigtails, sweet lemonade

bitter scythe swings a rancid promonade
put a chew toy upon the train tracks
for certain the puppy found its way

youth violently tossed aside , 
diamonds turned into clay
where's  the sun when life marches cold
sun tender heart slung to icy bays

but the sun will softly turn the blinds,
put rainbows into burned out eyes,
all things will scar with a stitch of time
{like bent berries on winters tangled vine}.

green shoots will bouton sky into songs
place gentle moss over jagged rocks
turn the day back into diamonds..
age back into daydreaming brooks

LET SUN RAYS TURN INTO SNOWFLAKES

Scorched as a desert eagle,
trying to get to a cool river
to wash and soothe his dry feathers,
I shout to the sizzling Nature,
" Let sun rays turn into snowflakes! "


I must place the green mistletoe on my door,
hang silver bells on it and make them ring
when guests come in with heavy coats
draped with snow as their breaths steam...
oh, summer turn into winter!


Shivering as a boy who has built a tall snowman,
I rush into a home where delights are many:
presents stacked up under a freshly-cut Christmas Tree
as lights make me dream of that Holy Night in Bethlehem... 
when baby Jesus lay asleep and angels surrounded Him!


Christmas is many months away,
and wouldn't Santa cheer up everyone tonight...
as he comes down from the snowy sky and crashes on his fat belly?
Everyone thinks that I am going insane by wishing Christmas in summer
by constantly yelling, " Let sun rays turn into snowflakes! "

The Sweetest Thing Without A Soul

There's a beauty of rich intensity for which
the sun offers its full morning blessing,
an elegant red regard that soothes
a longing heart's desire, a warmth of emotion.
An inspired making that is fresh, free and real,
it is the Red Red Rose; a "Silent eloquence."
The air is drenched with its sweet smell
being the only one of its kind, and cannot
truly be transformed into something artificial,
the soft weight of the petals 
has the touch like babys' skin, I observe
its strength as a heartening symbol
for it appears to be carefree on the bush
or stands very well alone,
the stem is strong and straight, while the
leaves grow from the sturdy branches,
then as the bud fills out it becomes
more liberated and independent,
breaking away from the rest
of the bush like life itself,
the tender petals open up like your heart
to pleasure, and also fades gracefully
under the sun as we do with age.
At the end, the rose falls to the ground
fulfilling its life, just like we
live our lives from birth to eternity...

Sometimes Only One Is Needed

Sometimes Only One Is Needed

A subtle message in my mind
Reminds me of one thing
It doesn't take two to bring bliss
Sometimes all you need is yourself
You can sit on the porch all day
Listening and singing along with songs
You can take a long walk through a park
And spark the idea to get an icecream cone

When the memories get you down
Remember to smile and not to frown
For life is far too short to live in yesterday
So when you can face a troubled past
With a grin and a thumbs up
You will have taken life in your hands
And you'll know it's your day
To shine in a world full of viberance

And when you wake up each morning
The sun will be shining on your face
Hugging you with arms of light
The sun can't ever let you down
You could be the best of friends
And see each other every single day
The clouds above are a singing choir
The day is yours to take

A subtle message in my mind
Reminds me of one thing
It doesn't take two to bring bliss
Sometimes all you need is yourself
You can sit on the porch all day
Listening and singing songs
Just remember that life is yours
The day is yours to take

Her

A smile that never reaches her 
eyes

A laugh that never reaches her 
soul

A hug she cannot feel

A numbness that is everlasting 

Numb to the world around her 
but not the pain inside

The allure of love and the false 
hope it provides

Beckoning to her like the 
warmth of a sun rise 

Filling her eyes with light, a 
change from the sticky dull of 
pain

A light that soon fades, 
dripping out in the tears she 
cries

Her heart flooding with pain, 
and drowning in tears 

Waiting for the sun rise to 
return

Through the dark night she 
cries

Tears of anguish wash away 
her pain

The sun rises for another day

The smile fake, and 
misleading, but it keeps the 
questions away

To start another day and end 
another night

Anxious for the day to last 

To end her waking pain, and 
kill the darkest night

The lingering bitter taste of 
tears as it fades

The smile becoming real

The flood waters draining 

The pain being released by a 
loving hug, and a waking 
happiness

Stored away for months like a 
sleeping bear

Waiting for warmer weather to 
warm her soul, and
make her smile warm and real 
again

To make her... her

HAPPINESS – A GAME OF HIDE & SEEK

I went to seek happiness but it decided to play,
Hide & seek with me, one moment, it seemed,
To appear & the very next instant, it disappeared
 into the abyss,
Thus, it played the game of vanishing act,

It acted like a fickle minded person,
And often changed its course & decision,
But happiness, being intangible,
Kept on fleeting away, but to return frequently,
For I would have liked to trap it almost eternally,

Like the prodigy of ebb & flow,
Sometimes happiness transiently flowed,
To inundate my life with its esteemed presence,
Also at times receded without any admonition,

Like the movement of the sun & the shade,
It gave the effulgence in form of the contentment,
But to fade away soon into the dark,
How ephemeral was its radiance!

Here I desperately urge to you,
O Happiness! Establish yourself
	into my life perpetually,
And put an end to this strife of:
The relentless pursuit of hide & seek,
The varying betide of the ebb & the flow,
The persistent contrast of the sun & the
	shade,
So that my soul will be blessed,
Whereby my spirit will be invigorated,
By the magnificence of your supreme power.

SADNESS DISSIPATES AS HAZE

Clouds bring on a storm,
the hidden sun can't keep me warm,
winter is months away,
but sadness dissipates as haze...
when sun rays start a celestial blaze;
who, besides me, wouldn't wish to stay?


On this bay, the ocean breeze
is cooler than the city's wind...
nothing get trapped among skyscrapers;
I can easily breathe and think of something wild:
like sailing on the fastest boat and discover amazing places
and nearing the orange horizon, I'll succumb to tears!



Come brilliant sunset, pause to let me admire
how you spread your pastels throughout the entire universe
to make many dream, or wish they owned some of it for escape;
come lovely sunset, and charm me with the scenery of bright colors
never seen in the evening sky, and this sighting I'll behold to soothe any dire 
to reach the unnamed comets and galaxies beyond it!



Stars march towards me, quicker than warriors,   
invading my limited space;
let them shine as many distant suns
while sadness dissipates as haze
to get rid of all menacing clouds...
before they strip meadows of their beautiful flowers!

Amelia

As the sun shines so brightly 
    I am always playing cheerfully 

Makes me realize that I have grown into 
    An energetic personality I can call my own; 

Excited about being close to Mommy & Daddy 
    They're so special! 
        Playing with my sister 
            And even looking for a seashell. 

Listening to my heart and soul 
    When expressing my feelings in art 
         Or whatever I like to do; 

I live in a world of happiness and joy, 
    Of confidence & determination 
        That special glow; 

Always surrounded by the love 
    That I have come to know.

An Ode to Birth and Death

Darkness ended, Winter released her icy grip; budding crystals soon began to drip.

The Earth then tendered, its surface filled with life; Spring now wed to Summer, the
radiant rays piercing the frozen skies.

But Beauty gives way to Destruction and forests turn to tinder.

Here lies the crossroads, an Ode to Birth and Death.

A flower that slowly bloomed left stranded now in late Spring, scorched by Summer’s rays,
but oh its beauty still remains.

It lives on desolate ground. A mind unfolded, it's heart retouched.

And at last outlasted a depression that once did rule. And you the fair Demise, how will
you compromise? When we together win the prize.

Flailing futilely in a sea of lies; the Fountain of Youth was found, its waters tainted.

Perhaps it’s best not to toy with Life and Death.

The Seasons unwillingly shifting, the Sun now in full bloom, and the flower starts to wilt;

Beautiful, as death begins to set, while Summer touched the Earth.

Petals fall away like tear drops on the skin, and light penetrates in a wonderful array.

Ever growing heat, now begins to drain them of life, while petals turned to dust, carried
away in gusts.

Together fertilized, yet unaware, it only dares to bring about despair.

Death gives back again to Life; an early end to a late start.

A new beginning comes from dust and decay, as the Summer sun now fades away.

The burning skies teaming with gray.

Death takes a new form; white, blinding, crushing and consuming.

Oh but gorgeous it remains, In time, life grows again,

Coming from the wastes of a flower that late bloomed.Yet life anew begins too soon.

In Winter’s last grasp, her touch did drain, when frozen ashes did remain;

Here is life’s penultimate breath, the greatest Ode to Birth and Death.

I remember...

I am standing on top of a cliff,
Its pure white rocks gleaming in the sun.
The sea is gently lashing against them,
I can hear the waves rolling in, one by one.

I am standing at one of the furthest points,
Like someone about to jump.
The soft green grass beneath my feet,
Not a cloud in the clear, clear sky.

The Isle of Wight in the distance,
The sun gleaming down its beams.
The sea is just tumbling on and on, seeming to never end,
It is so still and tranquil, a pin prick would make a ripple.

The air smells sweet and fresh,
As I take a deep breathe in.
The birds up above, calling each other,
Enjoying the warmth of the sun.

I too can feel the sun on my face,
The warm glow of my skin.
I look down underneath me,
And watch the waves tumbling in.

I let out a big sigh.
Forgetting my fear,
Of the height that I am standing at,
Because... summer, is finally here.

Pride and prejudice

Huddled inside his feathery frame, basking in his mellowing warmth, behind the horizon the sun rose and dawn came, and the dove awoke with fright and alarm. She had to fly for none must know, that her heart's with the raven. And she flew leaving her heart behind, only to wear a mask among her own kind. She played along as they tweeted with voices loud, their diction coated with malice and disdain.. She could do nothing but to their every word bow, while her tender heart bled and pained. Tangled in their rusted chain, she waited till the first star spawned. Bidding goodbye with a smile that she feigned, she wound the clock to the time before morn. As the sun crept to the other side, the dove lost herself in his love so wide. With their body and soul now entwined, they made love, when everything was so beautiful and fine.

Blue Bird

Blue Bird

All alone inside of my magical little paradise called my mind is an peaceful and quiet, the sun is like a gentle kiss on the cheek, and the people are just so warm and friendly but watch out because if you open your eyes everything you once knew will be gone. This magical little realm has an bloody little twist to it. The sun that was once as comforting as an warm blanket was in fact the glistening moon and the empty black sky, and the people are now all blood thirsty monsters that are no longer affected by the sun light are now out for blood.

I run to escape the sickening but yet oh so enticing scent of blood and failure, I run to escape the screams of those who's lives were cut just too short, and I run to escape the sight of the undead, blood thirsty zombies who are on the hunt for others to join their group. I'm running, running to safety and security but all the time there's nothing but pit falls and traps. I'm running and success isn't that far away but just then I see prince charming I stop and become distracted by his promising words but just then he too becomes a monster. I scream and try to run but I just can't you trap me in fire and I can't escape. 

My mind goes numb, I can feel the darkness further enclose around me, my mind goes blank, and I forget about everything. On the inside I'm screaming, fighting, kicking to get away but on the outside I'm a love sick puppy. I know I'm stronger than this but there's something about you that I just can't get over. Just as the darkness seems to grow closer an light appears and an blue bird fights off my nightmare monster and takes me back to my snowy paradise where I'm safe and at peace and I continue my lonely dark and cold path to my brightly lite future with the little blue bird by my side reminding me that I am and will forever be loved by both my family, people who actually care about me, and god.

Sensations of spring

spring only come's once a year
so celebrate it now while it's here
the flowers starting to bloom
gardens so full there not much room
new life starts to fill the world
as the seed of life starts to uncurl
with fresh start new love begins
when sun sets and light then dims
a whole new place circles the planet
as winter ends and finally sets
between the two most famous seasons
but its there because it has a reason
as spring begins so does the hope
with the new sun  the people can then cope
the fall of the cool rain and the warming of sun
to let everyone know spring has begun

When the Sun is Rising

Good Morning, the time has come,

 

Wake up sleepy head,

 

Wake up with the sun,

 

The sun is a rising,

 

The sun is awake,

 

The sun it is here,

 

The day is at stake,

 

Living and well,

 

The world carries on,

 

For the sun has a risen,

 

The night, it is gone,

 

The day it is sprinting,

 

The day is at hand,

 

For sun warms the cold ocean,

 

And crawls through the land,

 

Good morning my dear,

 

The time has for come,

 

To wake up the day,

 

And wake up the sun.

Mischief looks out a window

It ran along the backbone like a stoney ripple plunged
Darker in the deep of hearty's forgotten tarn
How high, how high did that water rise?
To be carried off by conduits, banked by its fall

Oh Europe it lays waiting, it's crumbled castles ungunned 
Docked are the hopes of ships which once followed each sun
That sky, that sky was thick then with lies
That was years ago honey, it's light-years away still

Broken hearted, broken hearts mend
Get the better of them all

You see, warm are the icecaps north of your blind wanderings
Give a sigh to them I dare, they'll groan back a cheer
God knows, Darwin knows that ain't a shame
And mischief looks out a window, the Sun in at you

Hum at a guess that the terrors of dreaming are smiling
Happily defeated and receding to clear
Those skies, those skies awaiting your name
Just swing the propeller, above weather, it's all blue

Whole hearted, whole hearted my friend
Get the better of them all...

The World I See

The morning sun rolls around
Here, like Tick Tock's on a clock
Even the current of the sea is flowing

Wallowing seagulls in there flock
Only the sea breezes have ever seen
Revealing, the sun begins to rise
Laying upon a sight every one should see
Dynamic rays of shine and Beautiful zodiacal lights

In the Clouds where birds view from the sky heights

Soon I wish to see with my own undying eyes
Endless Beauty and essence
Enchanting Love and harmony highs

A Walk Along The River Bank

When the sun shines in the sky and no clouds can be seen
A walk along the river bank is like a lovely dream
Down from the bridge the narrow stony path winds
Grassy banks on either side in which white butterflies glide
Insects bussing on the wing 
Through the nettles without a sting

On down the path it widens out and we see the rivers natural beauty
With swans and ducklings here on show their parents on feeding duty
In and out the reeds they swim the little heads ducking through water dim
But then again out in the sun their tail feathers waving a good job done 
This display is truly cute as round the weeds the little ducks scoot
All covered in that fluffy down not quite ready or dressed for town

A swan her nest built at the other side watches her chicks as they glide
They are so very young and small with little short necks which will grow tall
Ugly ducklings they may be now but watching the grownups we just say “wow”
The forms that nature her beauty does show the best designer could never know

The dappling water with diamonds bright shines in the sunshine with delight
Gliding over the stones made smooth through the years
It comes to the waterfall to cascade down like a million tears
Into a pool which is dark and deep then on it flows the river never sleeps

The white flowers of the hawthorn are joined their blooms to share
With beautiful wild pink roses entwined amongst them here and there
The grasses sway as their seed heads grow out to catch your legs
The tickle soft and gentle is asking pick me will you my seeds please spread
Then the smell of honeysuckle brings perfume to the nose
A wonderful display of nature on show as the river gently flows

Freedom

This is your time, Do you see that this is your time? 
The rain has united with the sun and  when it falls it shall bring water to the Earth.  
The sun will cast  colors as the rain falls.  
The beauty that will be seen, will be across the sky. 
Seems that the Birds would taste the sprinkles of the water, 
as they pass the bright colors of the bow that is placed in the sky. 
This is your time to shine.  
The sky will unite with clouds, and cause an beautiful array, of whiteness, for all to see. 
This is your time, to stand and be free. 
The wind has united with the gentle breeze, this will cause the mixing of aroma that will ride along the gentle breeze. 
The smell so free and sweet. 
Twirl and swirl upon the warm breeze.
This is your time to breath. The air will be sweet, and damp. 
This is your time, to dance.
The Earth will cause music to flow through the trees, 
Can you hear the sound? Listen to all that is clean and new.  
The uniting of nature, that is so crisp, it is safe here.
You will only be seen through the glass covered sky, Seen by his eye.
This is your time, Twirl, and dance, feel the earth between you toes. Twirl, sweetness.
Let, the woes, diminish. You are so beautiful here. So very lovely.
This is you, this is forever. You are united here, with your creator.
He can hear you without speaking. This is your time to smile.
This is your time to become who the Lord wants you to become.
Quietness, will fill your being, united. Peaceful and still. Let the wind 
Blow  through you. This is your time, So lovely so pure.

The Shower

I sit inside
Watching the rain,
Tracing it's path
Down the window pane.

I gaze at the people
Rushing past,
Praying the shower
Will not last.

Coats are buttoned,
Umbrellas brought out.
It's a downpour 
There's no doubt.

Snug inside
I sip my tea,
Getting wet
Is not for me.

People dash for cover
As the rain pelts down,
Making the puddles
A murky brown.

The streets are empty,
As the rain reaches it's worst.
It's a good job
I found shelter first.

Slowly the puddles 
Stop growing in size,
The sun and the rain
Reach a compromise.

As the rain drizzles down
And the sun reappears,
I see the most beautiful
rainbow I've seen in years.

People emerge
From under trees,
All that's left
Is a refreshing breeze.

Although it's dry
I want to stay another hour,
I'll watch and watch
For the next winter shower.

Forever Fall

Dark and cold as dawn sets in
And the grass is moist by the dew
So serene and blessed
How morning suddenly grew.
 
The sky lightens
Ready to greet the sun
The plants eagerly await
To soak in the heat as one.

Noon awakes, knowing its job
Is to warm the world
No wonder the sun is a god
Just hear the stream purl.

Soon the day turns to dusk
And the leaves continue to fall
The animals find their way home
As the sun sends its last call.

Darkness overshadows the light
And all that is visible are lit pumpkins
Until the sky welcomes the moon
More is seen when the shine begins.

Now nothing can take this away
That day and that night
The start of autumn
A mesmerizing sight.

Autumn Night

leaves change color
the cool breeze flies
the song of the leaves roars
rustles and bustles in the brush
birds begin to sing to the south
sky turns red as the sun sets on an Autumn evening
clouds not white but pink
coco and cookies all around
coats and children surround
the fire of life
roads and streets quiet
what a sound, what a sight
what a wonderful Autumn night
marsh mellows in fire places
smoke of warmth fills the night sky
sweet Autumn night
make the stars shine bright
the sun rises
the moon disappears
stars that once shone
are now gone
what a night
what a sight
please Autumn day
bring one more

where and when the sun will rise

whete the sun has risen
it has not risen before
when the sun is climbing
it is a different mountain
it does take, when the sun
will rise tomorrow
it will not be the same 
as it hikes the wild blue yonder
it goes through termoil every day
hifting through the clouds
that follow,
when it falls the moon will rise

Little Birdie Sing

as a brand new morning rises,
the beautiful skies and,
everything around me shines anew
as i open up my eyes,
a velvet light shines in my room.

as the birds begin a beat, 
and the glorious sun sings,
and my heart gives me a tune

cuz everything has it's own way of how it became...

cuz the birthplace, of a song
it has no right or wrong.
and it is, poetry,
from the skies and the sea.
a song, is a wish, 
waiting to come true
and it, is a link of dreams
just trying to pull through

as the sun begins to set, 
and the stars begin to rise,
I can see the love,
spilling from your eyes 
It's moments like these,
that just make you wanna cry,
cuz ya know you never wanna say goodbye.

and this my dearest friends is the birth of a song

because the birthplace, of a song
it has no right or wrong.
and it is, poetry,
from the skies and the sea.
a song, is a wish, 
waiting to come true
and it, is a link of dreams
just trying to pull through

little birdie sing

Amaryllis Flower

Despite my ravishing hunger
I am ever so full
The barrage of rolling thunder
Joins the moaning of the ghoul

The sun is blocked by clouds
The fog obscures my sight
While my soul is filled with doubts
I refuse to see the light

But the sun peeks through and shines
Despite the tyrant storm
My amaryllis flower
Of my soul has just been born

Look Around

Just take a walk and look around
There’s lots of beauty to be found
Stay out late and see the stars
How bright they shine from oh so far

The sun feels warm throughout the day
But when it’s gone the stars do play
In the evening cold but yet
Look at the moon a glow you get

The little things we take as so
But what would happen if they should go
No sun to warm no moon at night
No stars to twinkle nothing in sight

The world would be a worthless husk
Living in a total dusk
Just like some of us who choose
Not to look but sit and lose

The Rideau

I rinsed my paintbrushes in the Rideau River
Watching a kaleidoscope of colours
Dance with such an intensity
It was the first time I
Saw
Acrylics come to life
Among the minnows
I am Vincent Van Gogh, 
I am
Coated in
Deep Crimson Reds and
Rich
Olive
From the Green
I was using for the mountain tops
And
Owl City Soundtrack
Is resounding all around me
Without any essence of a concern or worry

I spent an afternoon floating directionless on The Pelican 
Turtles worshiping the sun as they raise their heads as I pass them Slowly
The Heron
Soars under the heaving clouds
The leafs whisper excitedly 
Fall is approaching,
As the sun sets over the
Sandcastle Shores
I am fashioned with Waterlilies
 Adorning my hair 

My campfire perfumed Hoodie
Water that has become my Looking glass...

it 
 Is so calm, it looks like glass



My wind strewn hair
And
Sun Kissed Cheeks.
In this dream like state
Of reality
I am freed.

The Days When Sun Came to Play

It amazes me what warmth is set free,
On long summer days all spent in play,
By a smile, and chuckle and a promise to stay. 

Standing in awe at the amber sea, 
Are father, mother, daughter and son, 
Staring out where all day, Sun had shone. 

Before it hides away from the night,
it glares forth a challenge to Family,
"Can you make the very most of me?"

Sun peaks through the windows at dawn, 
Waking Family with a chuckle and smile,
"Are you awake, making the most of my wiles?" 

Sun follows Family's cycles to the forest  as well.
Guarding them with warmth, kissing well their city skin,
"Are you playing a game by going in and out of the dim?"

At lunch time Sun is high in the sky,
Joining in, stealing a little of Family's ice cream,
"I'm sorry, I don't mean it to seem mean!"

In afternoon Sun follows Family to sea,
Warming the water and highlighting the rocks,
"Can you see me greeting boats at the docks?"

Evening creeps in, chasing Sun away.
But as it dips down it says it's Goodnight,
"Bless you all 'till tomorrow, I'll wake you early and bright!"

Sunset

A beautiful sunset, a painted picture in the sky. The clouds dared to take it away, but the sun shone through over this breathtaking horizon, I always knew with you, there would be a reason. I always believed in you, my heart whispers you are speaking the truth. I find blithe safety and trust in thee... please don't ever leave me. You'd miss this beautiful sunset, our memories you'd soon forget, would you want to risk that all? Giving up everything for nothing... who'd be there to help you up if ever you took a fall? Who'd be there, but me?... Who'd remember it all?... A cold wind sets in, I search for you... A ray of sun finds a sparkle of hope inside of my heart, I see you standing still, proud, and tall. There you are. A butterfly in my soul, how happy, how joyful. With this one last sunset before the end of our time, it paints a beautiful picture across the sky. Forever a butterfly fluttering, enchanting in my mind. And so you fly away, transforming in the light. Tears stream down my face, a broken heart, a sad goodbye. We will soon be together again, a promise until the end. Love will last forever, forever will find us in the end.

Morning Delights

  "The breeze outside the window,
    Bids me a cheerful day;
    The soft rustling of leaves in the treetops,
    Has many a thing to say:
   'The dark, dreary night is over,
    The stars 'gainst the velvety drape,
    Have all faded back in the twilight;
    Dark horizon the sun now does break'.
    The birds in their perches are waking,
    Beginning their day with a song;
    A chorus of chirping commences,
    And lasts all the whole day long! 

    The dew on the grass, how it glistens!
    As the rays of the sun burst so bright.
    Tiny beads on the flowers do sparkle,
    Like the jewels of a crown, what a sight!
    The aroma of morning does linger,
    In the air, on the breeze, oh so sweet;
    It silently sneaks through the window,
    Like the quietest, cleverest thief.
    The day has come into being,
    This much, I know can be said.
    Though the World itself now is awakening,
    I turn over, and go back to bed."

and i'll know you're touching my heart.
the sun is our connection and the moon our guide.

Blue Fire

Blue Fire

I watch the fire before I slept,only thinking of you only wishing to be by you more.But I know life is to short to keep in the past tonight I shall watch the blue flames die and watch the sun rise tomorrow.As I think of my life as a new beginning and my last the old me dies.There is more to life then how I use to live,But as those flames die out I die as well to be reborn all over again so I can truly understand what it means to die and be reborn.This is and will be the day were we split,I do not want to remember any of the bad but all of the good and that is how it will be.Though you shall be in my heart I shall be moving on.For when the blue flames die away so will the old me So when the sun rises I will be born again.

Ashes to ashes, Dust to Perfection

Too many thoughts tabulated by one soul
Repairing broken hearts like clockwork
Working the night like the day was a gift
Sunshine wandering off into distant deserts
Could I be right?
Could I be wrong?
Unsettled and uncomfortable
Relaxing into life 
Falling gently into imagination
Taken away to future places
Future lives
Future loves
Excitement takes over the unsettled thoughts
Aspiring to be better
To be complete
Not fixing 
Nothing is broken
Piecing together a lost hope
Sliding the puzzle into place
Slowly but surely 
The sun will not distant
The sun will wake like I with a smile
Broken hearts will become the past
Thoughts wont be tabulated
Thoughts will be embraced
The day and night
Everything in between
Fulfilled

A dark sun rises

by the darkness of the moon,
I rise from this grave.
these barren lands
which hold my rotting corpse.
and I stand.
I stand in my hole.
6 feet of dirt.
and I watch the sun as it comes.
I have seen this sun rise
day in and day out.
but what makes it any better this time?
It gives me hope now,
a chance for a new life.
a hope for a new day.
And light for a darkened path.

Time

Just as Time will allow seasons to pass, a pearl to last in an oysters grasp... a fetus to grow in a mothers womb, a boy to a man, the healing of wounds... sun up to sun down, Time allows... and as life goes on, reasons to look to the sky and yell I need you now! But if Time will allow this one thing...these memories of mine, to be like the first Time...I looked into the eyes of love, when Time stood still, and all I could do was feel!
Just as Time allowed this precious moment, it also allowed this moment to be frozen...
In Time...

The Lighthouse

The amber sun is melting into the ocean
Painting an orange glow across the horizon
Tropical breezes hold the palms in perpetual sway
The rising tides lap ever closer to our toes

The sand gives underneath our leisurely steps
As we walk hand in hand along this silent beach
Gulls swoop lazily in for a curious look
Satisfied, they fly effortlessly away again

The conversation flows easily, lightly
Smiles and laughter have been our day's companions
My arm slips around your waist and draws you near
Gazing into your soft green eyes as the golden sun sets behind us

We ascend the weathered stairs as the night falls
The ancient door creaks open with little resistance
Old, long abandoned, this candle on the shore
Its brightness never again to sweep the horizon

I spread our pallet across the wooden planks
And lie there with you, our bodies entwined
I hold you close, lost again in your eyes
As you sweetly press your soft lips to mine

The flickering candles soft glow dances on the walls
As the night blows its breath in gentle breeze
Those gentle embraces and soft kisses
Have exploded into furious, unbridled passion

Your pleasured releases wash over you
Cresting as quickly and strongly as the tide
Your red tipped toes curl and quiver
As your fingers grip and tug at my hair

I caress your silken body, so soft
Clad only in the candles sultry light
Again our eyes lock gaze, unable to turn away
As our bodies sway and rock to our own rhythm

Pleasure's Power overwhelms us both
A vibrant explosion of colors only we can see
Bathing the room with its intensely warm glow
Surely as bright as the beacon above us

In my arms, M'Lady now lies
Safe, secure, giving me comfort
We savor this night, every fleeting moment
For with the new day's sun comes the sorrow of our parting.

Time For Lovers

Time is with us 
As our hearts unite and our souls become one
Time is right now 
As I reach for you and touch my palm against your brow
With my heart I do see all that I want us to be
And maybe love will come shining down on me

As the sun warms our eyes, and the snow cools our skin
Oh the soft gentle bend of the combined
Does blow my mind
There’s no more time 
Or the sticking, tricking shadows that crawl upon our face 
Erase, erase

Time is with me 
As I walk with you for all eternity
Time is still to come, 
As we journey far into what has just begun
With my heart I do know how much more we have to grow
And maybe our love is all we’ll have to show

As the sun warms our eyes, and the snow cools our skin
Oh the soft gentle bend of the combined
Does blow my mind
There’s no more time
Or the sticking, tricking shadows that crawl upon our face 
Erase, erase

Time does not conceive what you truly mean to me
Time can not feel
The warm intoxication that you give to me
As our bodies collide with the sea
Time will not last if we run too hard or too fast
Just hold my hand and you’ll be ok, and with me time will never come our way
We will escape the time

Fulfillment

Fulfillment

What is this thing called life,
working and struggling
no end in sight
what ever became of the dreams that were me?
Where am I,
who am I,
what shall I be?
Fulfillment is the dream sleeping in the cocoon
awaiting the rebirth of the child
who still believes in the man-in-the-moon
somehow safe,
until the sun arises to awaken the child
and sparkle off the dew of hope
that keeps the dream alive.
Fulfillment shall be mine one day, and the dream,
so sweetly nurtured,
will burst forth on wings alive with vibrance and light, 
and the setting sun will no longer
bring fear of a life left undone

Young Love

June 17, 2006
 
How sweet, how serene,
Delicate inside a core,
A flower I have bore.
Such a magnificent scene!
 
Blossoms in bloom are what you bring.
I couldn’t ask of you for much more,
I even find you shining on the Seashore.
You make my heart dance and sing!
 
The Sun shines down on me,
And the Moon leads my way.
The Stars shine and I can see,
A beautiful Sun shiny day!
 
You come from somewhere up above,
Tender in my heart is a Young Love!

Life is like a piece of chocolate because your heart melts when you eat it.
It's like that because in every box there's differen't flavors, shapes and  sizes you 
can chose.
You could chose how you want to live you life but there's going to be times when 
you have to choes what's good and what's bad.
Chocolat is sweet and pure which is something that most people perfer.
Except the sun because the lucious sweet chocolate sits in the sun melting away 
but making the sun happy becaue he succeded in destroying what most people 
perfer.

Love's A Gamble

The sun will rise,
The sun will set.
Love's a gamble,
So place your bet.

You can have a pair.
You can have three of a kind.
If you play the game too long,
You can loose your mind.

There can be two hearts,
There can be an ace.
You can win,
If they are in the right place.

The sun will rise,
The sun will set.
Love's a gamble,
SO PLACE YOUR BET !

THIS FAIR QUEEN

This fair Queen 
rides in soft golden light 
Only at twilight,to be seen 
Golden hair catches the sun 
This fair queen on the run 

With rippling emerald shawl, 
this fair Queen rides in golden glow. 
Only the faithful know it so 
For, the faithful know it all 

This fair Queen loves her folk, 
her smile, like the sun 
Intoxicating fun, 
the fair Queen can invoke 

This emerald green 
disappears in to the night. 
Not to be seen, 
golden hair, 
golden delight, 
rides far in to twilight. 

This fair Queen, 
bejewelled in green 
Golden hair, 
the like, never seen 

This ethereal Queen 
in gold and green 
Seen by the few 
Those who believe it true 

This magical time 
betwixt day and night 
The clock does chime 
This fair queen 
must ride with all her might. 

To go after sundown 
This fair Queen 
will lose her crown, 
willl never be seen 

For the kingdom of twilight 
the fair Queen rules all 
Bejewelled in green 
Golden hair ,so bright 
The dying of golden sun 
Her work is done 

This fair Queen will disappear 
at the dipping of the sun 
Bejewelled in green 
Only to be seen 
on a snow white horse, on the run 
When the clock does chime, 
at twilight time 

Golden whisper at dusk, 
fleeting flash of emerald green 
Scent of honeysuckle musk 
This golden Queen 
can only be seen, 
by the faithful few 
Who know it is true 

This soft chuckle of delight, 
heard only at twilight 
Tis my Queen 
That can only be seen 
in soft golden light

Send Me A Shout Out

Send me a shout out
Through the window
Light..

While the sun rain
Down and my mind
Soars..

Upon the wind the
Embers rise..

Filling my heart with
A song much like the
Soul serenade by King
Curtis Blue..

Just sip thy nectar of
The remnants of life..

While the sun rain
Down and my mind
Soars..

Treasure Hunt

You were here such a long time ago.
I knew you not nor did I have a clue.
I was just a silly giggly little fool.
Days passed by until the Sun set too low.
So I memorized the Stars at night watching them glow.
I’d swear I’d never have believed you much less knew.

Until, I went back into the past and chased the future ahead.
That’s when I saw the trails and the paths lain from before.
Some were laid in gold, others silver, even diamonds and lead.
The Sun struck down on them and they shined even more.
It was obvious by the color of branches in the trees that were dead.
I could taste the honeydew trickling down my lips feeling my heart of hearts.
I chased the birds and plucked a feather of a white dove just for you.
I ran along the Sea shores and the Oceans belched a many a roar.
Salt on my lips and free with the wind I knew I wanted more.
The Moons beams shined down on me so I followed the shore.

I found seashells and rocks of all kinds and saved them all.
I even cleaned them up and gave names to a few too small.
The Stars began twinkling brighter here and there.
I watched them naming a few and one I made mine.
Then I found the Mountains and how tough they fair.
I rock climbed the highest ones and drew myself a line.

I saw the snow fall and watched it melt.
I just can not tell you in words how that felt.
I ran through the fields and the prairies took my breath.
I was alive inside just feeling my best, there was no death.

The rains came pouring down watering the splendor grass.
Thunders and lighting's all came in a great big flash.
I’m alive inside and just feeling great.
Passing through time I can never be late.

On plated trails of past, present and future I am so alive.
It’s a treasure hunt of buried beauties buried deep inside.
And each vibrantly strives simply to thrive.
And each one seeks where you hide.

Beauty

Hear the rock cry out to the ocean
Watch the ocean cry out to the moon
Sense the moon crying out to the sun 
 Feel the sun as it cries out to the lily~
Manifested beauty cries out from the earth
“Let our reflection be seen and our song be heard throughout the universe
As we manifest our beauty back to Creator”
What say you oh son of man?
Shall you keep silent in the shadows while all of creation manifests its beauty?
Where is the beauty given you?
Have you lost it, or just masked it with falsities?
Futilities that waste untapped potential in your beauty;
Awake oh daughter!  Arise dear son! 
Manifest your beauty and radiate your light given you
Before it is too late and regret sets in for the death of your soul~
Arise dear ones and manifest the beauty given you

THE WEST WIND PRINCE

Far in the West, 
over the blue sea 
Was the home of the West Wind Prince 
Who's crown, the colour of sunset 
The colour you would agree, 
The most beautiful since......... 
The Tapestries had been blessed 

The soft brown hair, 
with a crown , 
The colour of sunset 
This Princes' eyes........... 
The blue before the sun going down 

The wind so cool, 
The wind so strong........ 
The West Wind Prince............ 
Sailing along. 

Fresh and sweet 
This wind.......... 
This Prince...... 
The Princess he would like to wed 
The West Wind to the castle it led 

For the Kingdom of the West 
The Sunset Crown 
Worn when the earthlight goes down 
Such light! 
The West Wind Prince yearns for the light 

For the Sunset Crown........ 
So bright! 
Needs a Princess........... 
To stop the light going down, 
by being by his side 
The starlight 
To illuminate the night, 
when the sun does hide 

To the Great Hall, 
onwards he sped 
The Princess of Stars......... 
He wished to wed 
The wind cool and strong 
The Princes' heart to fall 
The Princes' heart did belong

and i am nothing left behind in the depths of eternity

Florida Longing

Pin fish silver lick the waves
rain drops crater the sand
Feeling foolish, longing strong
missing the sun in my hand
Caucus of colors sweep through my mind
calling my heart to it's beat
Feeling fed up with this New England gray
drizzle delirious bleak
Fly me to Florida
Strip off the coats
Break out the bathing suits
Blow up the floats
Sail me on waters
of mint green and sand
Humid deep breathing
The sun in my hand
where pin fish silver lick the waves
and rain drops cool off the sand
in a three minute storm which gets carried away
by the sun stretching out to my hand.

Sunrise

I've been awake for a while now,
Sun is rising out my window pane
Shadows flash as we pass the trees
The train is slow, but I'm at ease.
The golden hue upon the fields
Makes me feel like it's a fresh new day.
Feelings come and feelings go
Just like the sun rise and set,
Some to remember, and some to forget.
YOu reach the mid-day peak,
Then sneak behind the mountains once again.
It never stays, you can count on that.
Gently rocking me to sleep,
But the sun is staring right into my face
It's reaching rays growing as it comes over the horizon
Telling me to appriciate what is now.
The quiet hush of wind as it brisks past the engine.
The first woken up grin.

Dream On The Beach

Soft wind blows at my skin
warm and fuzzy;
Like my cocoa brown eyes
My hazel skin feels warm against the sun....
Maybe if I could fly I would
Kiss the sky.....and take a piece 
of the warm sun to my heart.
I breathe beauty as I sit 
On the blackest of sand and 
My long black hair blowing to
The sky like black fire
Maybe if I was 
a flaming godess 
I would rule it all;
The sun the sky the moon
In full glory. 
I feel the warm and fuzzy 
Wind against my bronze like skin
I smile to the sky as 
The rushes over the sand
Tickling my feet softly.
Maybe if I was as free as the 
Water at the beach
I would be free as
Blue birds and bees
My love for nature 
Frees my soul as I fly
To a beautiful heaven.....
My dream fades as I come back to 
my bronze colored body
Covered with black sand
Dark as the smooth midnight

Memories and Wishes

The sunlit memories of childhood were happy, they were fun
What happened to those days of past? What happened to the sun?
For now the sky is gray and black and often filled with rain
Oh where, oh where, is that sun to relieve me of this pain?
The many days then of my youth had sunshine and had glee
But now they’re gone and far behind, I guess they’re history.
If only, then, the sun would show and smile upon me now
I know that I’d get through the days with happiness somehow.

Changed.

I like it when the stars a line,
it's like every thing goes perfect every thing you find,
I like a summer sun set in late June,
I've regrouped calmed my soul changed my tune,
I like the sound of the ocean as it crashes on the rocks,
no matter the size of the wave it stands there taking it's knocks,
I like misty mornings the air so crisp a cold,
it touches you to the bone till the day unfolds,
I like a spring morning the most,
the sun is early to raise as birds sing the days toast,
I like greeting the day alone,
time to myself, time.. a moment I own,
I like as the day ends and all is still,
family's gather together as the night finds it's chill,
I like the smell of roses no matter the color,
they remind me of my mom and how much I miss her,
I like that I've learned to stop...and enjoy a world I never seen,
blue ski's, high mountain tops hills and valleys of green,
I like how this moment and time I didn't take for granted,
I smiled, felt and stayed in a moment here in a place were I'm planted 
I like what my mom told me and how it came true,
don't pretend hold on to true love and let out the real you,
I like how my wife and kids completed a world I couldn't see, 
she showed me what love is and they set my heart free,
I like that I never seen it coming,
a story book, love song, fairy tail without an ending 
I like who I turned out to be,
and I think mom would of been proud of me.

Summer Needs

Sunflower petals adorn the front lawn 
As the sun watches from the bluest sky
I, with only thoughts of walking this day
Was blessed to see beauty with wide open eyes 
                             ~~~~
I wandered the streets of my little town
Hands in my pockets, whistling a tune
Feeling the heat of the sun on my face
Gave smiles a plenty, this warm day in June
                             ~~~~
Meandering thoughts of many days ahead
The summer’s just begun, many days to go
I whistled my tune as merrily I sauntered
With a smile I greeted everyone I know
                             ~~~~
Seems like everyone took this walk today
For so many people are out and about
Enjoying the calm and the warmth of the sun
Two of today’s gifts, I can’t live without

Turned 13

The aroma of herbal tea
Fills the room,
Bringing back all the memories;
All the joyful reminiscences,

I sit back, watching the sun rise…

Contemplating the emerging
Beauty of the orange sunlight,
I feel the reflection of it in my eyes,
At the moment, life’s beauty enraptured
Me,

Light gradually emerged
To turn a new page,
To conceal darkness with new ambitions,
To relive,

I sat there meditating every
Single detail,
As I waited and anticipated
These seconds that will change my life,

As I continued staring deeply,
The sun slowly began to rise,
Filling my eyes with tenderness…
I felt a smooth breeze refreshing my skin,

The sun rose and rose
Becoming half a circle,
It became like the smile of patience
Drawn on my face,

After long minutes of pleasure,
The sun finally came up,
Becoming a full circle in the azure sky;
Like a face that shimmered,

Smiling and smiling…Like I never smiled before,
I stared at the dark, gloomy sky as I heard my sister say,
“Happy 13th birthday Farah!”
She embraced me with excitement and love, as
 I thanked her for being the first to say that to me…
“12:01am”
-----------------------------------------
As I woke up the next morning,
Out my window was the sun,
Reflecting its beauty on the earth,
I remembered yesterday…

“Thank you God…Thank you for making this day a page of light that will erase all 
the other black pages.”

Sunrise

It is a glorious sunrise
On this early misty summer morning
The first rays of the sun breaking through
Slowly lighting up the ending night sky
The colors are magnificent and radiant
The sun light starting to kiss my skin
The soft puffy clouds in the blue sky
I close my eyes to absorb my surroundings
The ever slight breeze caressing my body
I inhale slowly, letting the cool air fill my lungs
The silence is almost deafening
I could stay here forever in this perfect moment
I feel relaxed and almost giddy
My emotions running wild with glee
I open my eyes and take in the wondrous view
The sun now rising above the horizon
The birds are awakening, ringing in the new day
The dew on the grass, glistening like diamonds

Exercising the Soul

Press the sky for answers
Wish for penny rain
Snapping, popping, tin-roof dropping
Copper ankles wade
Wear the moon as a necklace
Tears reflecting the stars
Falling, pooling, drown them unruly
Caught cold in shards, diamond hard
Riddle the sun with emotion
Prison of season's delight
Missing, crying, pale but undying
Winter seclusion is nigh
Trust the wind in the moors
Fog and mystery mist
See me, don't see me, emergency free me
with all of your soul in a thimble sized sip
Shine in the depths of the sea
Light up the indigo silt
Wash up on shores where the sun always shines
and the water recedes at your will
Shoulder the wind as a scarf
Tolerate mid-season moods
Walk up to winter, she's autumn's big sister
The exercise will do you good.

Morning Eyes

With morning's mouth, so speaks the sneaky sun
With lisping, skipping, shouting orange breath
with new discoveries upon it's tongue

to warmly set the soul at ease to test
the souls it's words engender seek to pause
and wind the dew toward heavens yet to rest

the sun absorbs the rhythm just because
it's task is one of cycle and advise
with speech to gently warm us to it's laws

while having conversations with the skies
reflected in a rainbow or a cloud
or in the silent steam in silver sighs

but now to morning's mouth we hear aloud
the sun to urge the risen toward their lives
who listen to the sun without a sound

and by it fill their pockets warm and wise
with light that others seek with empty ears
but never see in morning, orange eyes.

Waves and Whispers

We huddle over the mass of our treasures
with stinging skin and salt ringed hair
while holding a washed blue sea star shining
we whisper with bittering breath on the tide
The waves peel thus and entice us to dig
with backs holding skies and the sun raging noon
while fingers break open in white salty clean
we meticulously scan the horizon for change
We stop when their fins slice the water in arcs
with hands shielding eyes and our lips flooding smiles
while standing like beacons with roots on the land
we wonder if dolphin eyes strain to see us
The moment they pass we are back hard at work
with bellies of hunger and cotton tongued thirst
while feeling the sun on our skin to take home
we whisper that this is the time of our lives.

cold black skies

broken moons and shattered stars
dark cold days no more sunshine rays
days and nights pass by so fast staring threw my looking glass
cold dark nights leak acid rain theres no more sun just all this pain
loneliness is all i have gained
the days are hot but there is no sun feeling like the darkness has won
black dark eyes without a care a dark cold heart with so much dispare
frozen lakes rivers too the ski is no longer blue
the sun don't shine the birds wont sing
a fallen angel with a broken wing
make the sun shine so bright 
bring back the stars that make the night
sing me a song with so much love
open my heart to the light above
fly for me and be my star
please look after me where ever you are
be my sun that lights my path
be my moon that lights the night ski
be the wind that passes me by
so please no more broken moons and shattered stars
no more feelings of emptiness inside
its only the wind passing me by.

Luxury of Living Things

Spring is in my steps.
It's tucked behind my ear in orange blossoms.
It shivers me in sun in morning breezes
and stops to coil seeds in soil spun.
It foils all the last attempts of winter
to ice and freeze the sapling green decree
while slipping songs to birds in rectifying
the quiet of the winter's revelry.
Spring is in my smile.
It's braided in my breath of peppermint
It has me waking irises from frozen ground in sleep
and crushing air perfume into their scent
It matches every moon to slip in silver
It breathes the sun and warms the sullen ground
It wakes to dance the prelude into summer
to the luxury of living things abound...

Daydreaming

Big red buckets and yellow elephants
Standing on mice wearing pink flared pants
Oil filled puddles of many rainbow hews
And crocodile upholstered chapel pews

Armies of platform shoe wearing dogs
Wearing wigs made from living frogs
Thick carpets made of real living fur
That when walked on emits a soft purr

Deep swimming pools of strawberry jelly
Hand painted sandals by Botticelli
Gold plated gloves and silver shoes
Invisible paper for reading the news

Custard foot spas and florescent trees
Serviced by an army of giant bees 
Giant bales of pink sugar-candy hay
Drenched in a honey flavoured sun ray

Glow in the dark butlers and purple maids
Liquorice flavoured garden sun shades
World domination through sensuous massage
A herd of wild hippos kept in the garage

My day dreams contain the silly and daft
Strange thing blow through on every draft
My mind is cluttered with harebrained schemes
But every single one of them sparkles and gleams

Ollie and Emie

He carried her like the lazy, in her champagne, satin dress
and slipped her soul on the mattress bare, as her soul was quite a mess.
She woke with the sun in her eyes as the sun always has it's way
She woke with a moment of hope that he had changed all his plans and decided to stay.
He carried her name on his lips, through the have's and every have not
and wished she was thinking of him at the moment, and if so, he wondered just what
She lacked all the zeal for the world's success, she slept in his t-shirt at night
She lacked all the courage that she should have had to dismiss him without such a fight
He wore out his "plans" with realities rub, he siphoned the winds on a whim
and whisked her away for a week and a day 'till he was filled right back up to the brim
She laughed as they held hands in goodbye, between tears as she tried not to cry
She laughed as she knew she would see him again, though in words she could never say why
He sat at the stars one clear night, in their sleepy twinkling light
and dialed her number with the thought to hang up, to fall into sweet bless-ed flight
She answered: "What took you so long? I've been waiting for you all my life..."
She answered like the mirror to his long strung out soul and changed all his plans as his wife.

My Soul Rejoices In The Lord Everyday

(Swap Quatrain) 


My heart everyday, in the Lord rejoices too 
Because without Him, I wouldn't last a day 
God wants all the time, to walk with me 
In the Lord rejoices too, my heart everyday 

Every morning when the sun glows, I open my eyes 
And send all my praises to God above high 
The Lord wipes all my tears away, yes, I know 
I open my eyes, every morning when the sun glows 

It doesn't matter to God and that's so, what in the past I've done 
Jesus forgives me when I repent and then my sins are just gone 
God is my loving Dad, and yes that in my heart I already know 
What in the past I've done, it doesn't matter to God and that's so!

Breathe the Beach

Brown berry skin all covered in sand
White ribbon hair with pale yellow ends
Salty in smile, a grin to the wind
Children born unto the sea
Plastic pail castles with driftwood for flags
Shells clink and clankle in white paper bags
Noon is a time warp that stretches and drags
the sun 'till it snaps ricochet
Boats flying by us with cursive pun names
Dolphins below them in bubbling games
Cameras snap photos in permanent frames
all in the blink of an eye
Brutal the afternoon people to bake
Some soaking sun sleep, and some wide awake
All with a vigor the sea breath to take
to carry it's purity home.

Sunshine and Happiness

The days are getting longer as the sun is holding bright
It gives up, not so easily, as it tries to hold back night

The mighty yellow orb is working overtime these days
As winter turns to spring then into summer’s fiery rays

Alive then all the flowers, all the trees, the happy young
As, now, there is a freedom when we’re out there in the sun

Summer Days

There we were speeding along
the warm leather seats of the golf cart
asphalt hot under the wheels.

The sun shines down 
ever radiant above
the sky is as blue as ever

The occasional shout heard by all
as someone is hurt or excited
the happiness and joy in our hearts

Small waves hit the shoreline of Lake Michigan
the screams of swimmers as the water hits them
the smell of sun screen in the heat.

Little children laughing in the pool
the random parent shouting "don't run"
all good times wraped around us like a blanket.

The dazzaling sunsets
the golden ball falls to its daily death
as the stars begin to shine

There's only one word to describe summer
those longs days, wonderful days in St. Joesph, MI
"AWESOME"

Then summer days fade away
fall hits with a resounding boom
and the hope for more summer days.

In The Wee Hours

In the wee hours of the night
I sit in my little corner nook
Looking out my window 
Pane…
Loneliness engulf me while
I sit all along in solitude
In my own little corner
Nook..
Vex by  sleepless nights
Mind idling with wild
Thoughts...
Running through my head
As I wait for the dawning
Maybe than my thoughts
Will make sense..
Maybe I want feel so
Desperate and along
Maybe my imagination
Will bring sun….
Brighten my mind to
Enlighten my soul,
In the wee hours of the night
I sit in my little corner nook
Looking out my window
Pane…
While the silhouettes of the
Night shadows…
Brush against my window
Pane..
Making creeping, ghastly
Noises,
But the dawn will soon arrive
While the light spread..
Like the shadow  in the
      Night…
The sun will defy the darkness
As  the sun will prevail..
For the dawning of the day
Will shine..
Until the moon rise over
The horizon...

Let The Sun Rise

I hope that the sun will rise again,
and bring the light,
to this darkest night,
set me free,
I want to smile again,
this night is long,
I haven't seen day for so long,
I want to feel the kiss of the sun,
as it shines onto my face,
I want to end the cold stare of the moon,
as it gazes eternally on my face,
let the sun rise,
and let me be free,
of this cold night,
with no warmth in sight,
let me run,
with the sun's warmth upon my back,
give to me what the moon does lack,
give me the feeling of joy,
which I've never felt before.

Warm Sun

warm sun bathe my skin 
on the green grass blanket outstretched under pale blue sky
clouds dance across rays of light
peeking through
rays of hope rays of truth
happiness cover me engulf me
close my eyes
let the fears, the thoughts melt away
blown away by the breeze into the ocean swallowed by waves
just one speck, one speck of sand of earth of life
hot sun melt away droplets
tears of sadness
hot sun embrace me 
embrace me in happiness
cover me with your warmth

Sun Starved

Sunshine on lips which have starved for a drop
of attention from forces impenetrably hot
Holding the hand of invention's conception
having cracked open the moon late last night
Eating the shell was a task of elation
Belly filled full with a thought born of mirrors
The moon on the inside was frozen, congealed
filled with inedible, silver holed dreams
Buoyancy stretched out it's hand to deliver
frost on the lips born to shake and to shiver
Moon shell reflective and only the image
of sun drops imbedded in all that's alive
Now, on the day after lunar consumption,
the yearning for solar shelled rejuvenation
eclipses all thoughts bent on birth or starvation
to lean toward the sun for new growth.

WHAT IT MEANS.....

The sun dipped low.... 
On a horizon tinged with gold and red 
The sea calm 
Such things transient so 

When you become aware... 
What counts.... 
Is the things you share 

It takes time.... 
To understand... 
To appreciate a single day.. 
A sunset... 
Golden sand 
A chosen moment 
Heaven sent 

A flock of birds flew overhead, 
on a horizon tinged with gold and red 
One day... 
You will understand 
What is means..... 
To me.... 
What needs to be said 

All these things you can hold, 
in your heart 
On a stormy day 
On a horizon tinged with red and gold 
The reflected beauty within, 
is constant so 
The sea, calm 
Such things ... 
Transient though 

The sun dipped low 
Hid behind a darkened sea 
These things I hold... 
Inside of me 
With you.... 
What it means..... 
To me.. 
I hold deep so

Summer Fun

The sun ascended on the eastern shore as Tommy awakened to the day.
With eyes now opened, he jumped from his bed, excited.
He remembered, it’s the first day of summer vacation.
He is not about to waste the day lying around,
He would be off right after breakfast.
He grabbed his lunch he made the night before
So not to waste more time and ran from the yard
Even before the door slammed shut.
He met up with his friends at the ball field,
But to his dismay, older kids already made claim.
So, in a chair he waited, watched and napped.
His eyes opened again later that morning to a lunchtime sun.
He quickly ate down his lunch 
and ran to the fishing hole to meet up with others.
There, he planted his pole by his side, with hopes of catching the big one.
So, in a chair he waited, watched and napped.
His eyes opened later to the late afternoon sun.
He quickly went and got his bike and rode to the five and dime.
There, he met some friends 
And together, they taunted the passers-by. 
He felt the evening sun descend and knew he should leave.
Heading he couldn’t help but feel how great summer is,
No cares in the world, a day of whatever, each day.
Tommy arrived for dinner with a smile on his face.
When he was asked what he had done
His reply was with glee and he said “just about everything”.

I Love You

Just as sure as the sun will rise,

just as sure as the sun will set,

just as sure as night comes,

when the stars and moon are done with rest……I love you.

Just as sure as flowers bloom,

just as sure as flowers fade,

just as sure as tears fall,

when from your heart happiness runs away…….I love you.

Like a painting loves color,

like a poet loves words,

like grass loves green,

and like the sky loves birds…….I love you.

Like ears love to hear,

like eyes love to see,

like hands love to touch,

and lips love to speak……..I love you.

Till music parts from melody

till rain parts from storm,

till good times part from memory, 

and till my soul parts from physical form, I will always…….love you!

summer dreams

a year each time, we must wait
for warm climate the world creates,
the singing birds and the apple trees
so, full of wonders and covered in leaves
how can one world make such beautiful things?
At summer time the world just sings,
holiday sun and fun, fun times
it's coming soon if you see the signs,
hanging with friends and dips in the pool
a little bit of freshness to keep you cool,
little beach hut and sand and sea
a little world that is perfect for me,
sun tan lotion for the browning skin
how can this beautiful world be full of sin?
Gentle waves lapping at my toes,
like a little secrets no one knows
buzzing bees and butterflies
flapping there wings so they can fly,
waking up in summer is a beautiful dream
with no more cold that can be mean,
and the massive sun that now just shines
we are in the worlds most beautiful design.

Sun's Rise

When cometh the sun upon the mornings dew
The birds will chirp in harmonious pure delight
As it raises and cast shadow then on the earth
We welcome the dawn so to let go of the night

The birds will chirp in harmonious pure delight
Serenading us as we share in a morning’s kiss
We welcome the dawn so to let go of the night 
We recognize it well for its beauty and its bliss

Serenading us as we share in a morning’s kiss
We delight in the sounds that play for us two
We recognize it well for its beauty and its bliss
As we welcome each other as we so often do

We delight in the sounds that play for us two
While we take each other into a tight embrace
As we welcome each other as we so often do
I kiss you tenderly as I stare into your face

While we take each other into a tight embrace
The sun tilts its head, blushing from the view
I kiss you tenderly as I stare into your face
As the sun rises, I shall make love with you

The sun tilts its head, blushing from the view
As it raises and cast shadow then on the earth
As the sun rises, I shall make love with you
When cometh the sun upon the mornings dew

Sunshine (2005)

Waited a whole year the sun to shine
A walk in the park that is all mines
Brightening the world we live in
Giving a glow to my pale skin
Beautiful colours and smiles all around
I love the sun’s reflection on the ground
The flowers dance and butterflies glide
I wish the sun would come everyday like the tide

Smile, Be Happy

Remember the sun today
Remember the sun tomorrow
Remember the sun just from yesterday
Always keep that smile
That is always on your face…
Because I want you to be happy!

Do you know what brightens up my day?
And I'm sure everyone else's
It's just your attitude
So whenever you're feeling down
It affects me as well
And I don’t ever want to see you sad
Oh I'll do anything in my…
Power to make sure… that you're happy
Oh I'll push myself beyond…
My limitations, if it is to keep you smiling

Remember the sun today
Remember the sun tomorrow
Remember the sun from just yesterday
Even through rainy days
I still want to see that smile…
Because I want you to be happy!

If at the sacrifice of myself
Simply everything of me
I'll give it all up, if it would make you happy
Whenever you need to be cheered up
Just call on me…
I'll be there, and quickly change the mood
Oh I'll do anything in my…
Power to make sure… that you're happy
Oh I'll push myself beyond…
My limitations, if it is to keep you smiling

Remember the sun today
Remember the sun tomorrow
Remember the sun just from yesterday
Always keep that smile
That is always on your face…
Because I want you to be happy!

LAST LIGHT

Last light, 
falling 
Sky on fire 
Shadowy spire 
My heart calling 

My heart, 
the colour of the sun 

My heart given to you, 
at last light 
The colour red, 
last light sunset 
Come to bed 

My heart , 
the colour of the sun 

The colour red, 
falling 
Radiating on our bed, 
my heart,....... calling 

My heart, 
the colour of the sun 

Last light, 
falling 
The sky on fire, 
my heart calling 
My desire, 
I give you the night 

My heart, 
the colour of the sun 

My heart given to you........... 
at last light 
This magnificent view 
The colour red 
Colour sunset 
Night, 
the colour jet

The Sun

The setting sun low to the ground.
Sets a horizon each morning and evening. 
Its brightness revealed.
Only sometimes concealed by only a cloud or two.
In the morning it will melt what is covered with dew.
In the evening the sun makes the skies colors show more true.
The sun makes everything majestic
