The face of Nature
Your hair,

Wild lavender dancing in the wind,
Throwing Scents of heaven into our life,

Your Eyes,
Streams of running water,

Tears that flow across the landscape,
and across our hearts,

Your lips,
From which the sounds of Blackbirds Sing,
Enchanting us into the mystery of now,

And your passion,
Volcanoes...Read More

The corner so soon much hell
Not enough love

the doubt

 me to love

it's the only reason
and it's us I'm speaking of
I say these most

I love and that's

Breathing Waters

I view the tides rise…
I come to the banks;
Up and down liken;
The rapid slaps, spanks;

New birth breathing child;
Splashing dancing tides;
Ships lost at seas bows;
Breathing Waters guides;

Troubled Soul
The autumn leaves happily dance across the ground
A touch of winter is in the air
I sit here alone with all my thoughts
Dejected - wondering why I even care

Have I given up on modern man?
Is my truth reality?

A moment, a glimpse
Was enough to make up your mind
It bears a gossip for your lips

Clothes within my reach is all I choose
Judged by the covers, like...Read More
