MINDFUL MUSINGS WE IMMORTALIZE
pastoral, heaven, imagery, love,
Form: Free verse
In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulations become distant memories.
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes -
inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind.*
Mindful musings we immortalize,
silent in the stretch of pastoral paradise.
Pearly gate invitation, without pause,
tender mercies and affection overcome us.
Tears wiped...Read More
Dilton Marsh Walk
pastoral, england, family,
Today, as we skirt the bare field,
there is nothing but us and the sky
and the white horse nodding us by.
The soil is slick with the remnants
of the rain that we dodged yesterday.
The tracks of a dog mark our way.
Our fingers...Read More

My Amazing Week on the Farm

Among Swaying Flowers
I am having a heavenly day among swaying flowers,
away from my usual city existence;
tumbling, I lay supine beneath a huge tree,
under the safety of cool emerald leaves.
A raging stream not far flows on it's forest journey,
oh, there is such a...Read More

Prayer poem ..
my call out 61
I who in long hour ..
low down in despair
I who need repair

Who is lost

Is in pain
I who cry
I who is rejected

Thou that plant shall harvest
Goes to all human farmers
Planting sinful seeds
Everyday in a sinful ways.
Thou that plan shall harvest
Thee plant might be yam
Taking its rightful time to germinante
It can be delay ne'er can it be terminate
And slowly it...Read More
blessing, christian, creation, death of a friend,
The things that have happened to me have turned out for the furtherance of the
Simple acts of kindness.
As I sit here in my motel room teetering on the edge of homeless I can see how God is blessing...Read More
An Autumn Pastoral
art, autumn, beauty, nature, seasons,
How is it in this meadow plush with grass
Where sturdy oaks stand holding up the sky
Their shade recedes -long summer days decry
To fade their glinting leaves to molten brass
Leaves that turn into October’s dream
Floating down as rustic butterflies
In Nature’s oft...Read More

Soft, simple wind go on a path that is made clear,
Freshly lays anew for each breath that one appear,
The subtle ripple spreads on a course that favors,
Fills open space and need to flow o'er layers,
Trust the virtuous man cometh and...Read More
By The Light Of The Silvery Moon
imagery, life, meaningful, moon, nature, song,
Man seizes the ramble of a wayward moon,
Echoes clear its pale look melancholy tune,
It lends a trail took before of song and face,
Man ambles in the real feel of its sung grace,
Glimpse that all the creator has caused to be,
pastoral, appreciation, earth, mountains, nature, poems, poetry,
Rose and lavender mountains after the rain;
lush green trees, the waters will sustain.
Bright indigo and sapphire waters of the lake;
their timeless jest’s a sweet refrain.
I hear music upon the silent waves,
oh how my heart, it does enslave.
From emerald forests, birds...Read More
And I Barely Heard the Finch
And I Barely Heard the Finch
How sweet your timid twitter,
Like a child pulling on its Mother’s dress,
And like the child, “Do you want to talk to me,
Do your little chirps mean more than seed?”
Free you fly through the dawning skies,
Ill suited for madcap twenty first century world
pastoral, 11th grade, 12th grade, betrayal, earth, eulogy,
Form: Elegiac Lyric
Aghast at explosive industrialization/
urbanization once sacred wild woodland
whittled away overlain bumper crops
comprising trappings green lighted
supposedly signaling progress unwittingly
overrides avast enclave (teeming with
diverse flora and fauna passively cleared,
dominated, expropriated by dictate of
commercialization, exploitation, fabrication
fueling amalgamation, fabrication, lubrication
oiling cogs and wheels sustaining,...Read More
Fittingly hallowed gods must intrinsic majesty hold.
Even before deities invoked weigh the caller's case,
The deity's potent title should alone spell the balm,
And tint with nourishing grace the supplicant's face.
Woe justly betides gods modelled by mortal skill,
Conjured to define the...Read More
WHEN CHERUBS SWAY
pastoral, angel, caregiving,
From a quaint chalet, one young mother breaks into solace glancing at doves wheel across a teal skyscape. Like intermittent flashes, her lucid memory recounts the giggles of her son rising near a hill... a pleasant outburst for a...Read More
As It Should Be
love, spiritual, truth, visionary,
Be fruitful and multiply
was the paradise prophecy
Let love take root in the Earth,
and then abound endlessly
The orange sunshine spread of peace
was the pomegranate shade tranquil covering:
An eternal dawn of such strawberry meek beauty
Mango charity is the sweet face
of brotherhood affinity
angel, death, introspection, judgement, obituary, spiritual, visionary,
when judgement day comes
where will you stand how will you answer
when the questions are asked
by the seven heavenly angels sitting in judgement
what did you do to make the world a better place
did you love or hate your life and others
By the Sea
By the Sea
There is a cozy alcove by the sea
Where when I am bothered,
Imagination carries me.
The blue ocean’s gentle tide
Splashes easily there,
Its white foam whispers;
As I close my weary eyes.
Neath a stony slice of pinkish bluff,
The world and its worries...Read More

pastoral, memory, nature,
Yes I remember when this was all fields
Patchworked across the vale to chalky down
The cornfield and the pastures and the weald
That fed the hearts and bodies of the town
Yes I recall the footpath that we took
To reach the hamlet and...Read More
The Prairie Farmer
pastoral, farm, seasons,
Summer is over and the farmer now rests from his toil,
Having labored hard to wrest his crops from the fruitful soil.
Fall has arrived and all the crops have been gathered in.
The corn, wheat and soy beans lie dormant in the...Read More
What is Spring
imagery, imagination, nature, spring,
So winter yields to springtime,
But what is that to me?
A birdbath with a blushing bird,
Or perhaps a honeybee?
Another turn; another trip,
Three hundred days, or more—
See the hummingbird’s uncertain sip;
Hear the dandelion’s roar.
Still, maybe I would like the view,
To see a...Read More
