Premium Member Another Day
As the moon fades from the sky,
Another night about to die, hear
The stirrings in the atmosphere, where
Sunrise, in its crimson flare, begins,
As towards the heights it wins, shining
Over all the land reclining, soon
Birds will begin to chirp and croon, making
Such...Read More

Premium Member To be wise

After many gray days, the sun says hello
It rises with bright light through the trees
As shades of pink float in the sky above
Everything is quiet, except the woodpecker nearby
I absorb the beauty, to override questions why
So much is happening that...Read More

A Birthday in Place
Believe it or not, my birthday’s been great
Though not one I would have predicted,
Assuming that I would be down in the dumps
For being so virus-restricted.

My pre-sunrise walk was delightful because
The rain I’d expected held off
And no one I passed on...Read More

Dawn heralds the sunrise
and so it's no surprise
that despite night's demise
Sol births daylight.

Dusk merges with shadows
that surround and enclose
silhouettes in repose
claimed by twilight.

Luna slowly ascends
as Her beauty transcends 
night and darkness descends
bathed in moonlight.

Now no longer concealed
shining stars are revealed
as...Read More

Premium Member Dancing with the Plague
Entombed in apartments
Vanished behind our surgeon masks, eyes darting
Fidgeting for meaning
Pacing living rooms
Like Flintstone reruns trapped on ME TV

While in the cobblestone valley of downtown
Powdered ballerinas of steam
From vents in the streets
Twirling ghosts to the music of wind

Window shopping on...Read More

Did you remake yourself
out of rust and algae again?
Yesterday was a gray beached hull
now it’s summer in the cornfields,
the tangy air has a towheaded phiz.
The mosquitoes have submarines
they crash dive each new morn.
The flowers are all gulping,
and the rain is...Read More

Cynicism at its finest
Most of us are unified by a shattered past, and a bleak outlook for the future that lies ahead.
The weight we feel everyday continues to cripple our minds in a way that completely dismantles any sense of happiness we might...Read More

Like one hand clapping, 
or night owls napping.   
A whistle with no pea, 
or a buzz without a bee. 

Like a city with no crowd,
or a snore that isn’t loud.
A wind which cannot sigh, 
or a storm...Read More

I love to ride in morning breeze 
On paths surrounding forest trees 
To share the scent of pine fresh air 
Where fine mist lingers in my hair.

Put back the part in your heart that was taken away
As the years go by reflections in the mirror fade

It's like a snake with the venom...Read More

This Too Shall Pass

Life today has become all about adjusting,
It becomes easier when in God we’re trusting.
Our faith tells us God will see us through,
so we do each day, what life forces us to do.

Premium Member Beyond The Clouds
When skies are grey and clouds are weeping, 
Lightning hurls its fiery thorn,
Reach for the stars behind the clouds, 
There shines a sun beyond the storm.
Beyond the clouds the sun is reigning 
In its ceaseless majesty,
Clouds will pass and then...Read More

The Swing
The Swing

Under this canopy of green,
The arms of this swing gleam,
Rocking gently to and fro,
As the magic courses through,
This swing of life,
Rocking through pain and strife,
Like others has to too,
Come to a halt though,
It swings high and low,
As the winds...Read More

Day Cycle Night
Sunrise. Red Skies.
Birds gleefully sing. 
Dew drops reflect light.
Brightness has overtaken the dark. 

Overhead, Sun Sits.
Burning the plains.
Warmth covers the land,
World is transparent and good.

Quickly- Light Falls
Orange fades black.
Sun hides its face,
Coldness dominates an unlit home. 

Blinded- Darkness Rules,
Shadows move...Read More

So they could build a highway, for the busy throng!

Butterflies Above The Merry
Butterflies bend the wind to color
They dip in circular momentum calm
Lifting the air enchanted through the pines
Past lakes at speeds monitored by time
And when the blue jay turns its head
More in a hurried pitch than surprise
In accordance with the laws...Read More

In the Dark
This morning I walked in the dark.
Before, I’d not go to the park
When the sky wasn’t light;
It would give me a fright
For the pathways were lonely and stark.

But now, though, my worries do lack
The fear of a mugger attack.
It’s the...Read More

Spirit Wings
If you live long enough…
those things you missed
will again return

No longer wrapped
in layers of disguise

But flying on spirit wings
the Archangels have endowed

to the morning’s sunrise
—your exiting dawn

She Wears a Pine Tree on Her Sweater
She wears a pine tree on her sweater,
her skirt is the green of the valley,
gray hair done up in long braids,
she is someone's grandma who
has seen a few miles as her wrinkles show,
a woman who has kept her glow.

She wears...Read More

The sleepy horizon,
soft pastels a’ glow
A new day awakens,
majestic its show

Lemonade shimmers

Blue bird concertos,

Dew drops a’ glisten,
hot coffee bliss
Cinnamon wishes
and dawn’s early kiss

Butterfly flutters
with spring in the air
A beautiful morning
