THE POET’S LOTUS

The poet’s lotus

Opening petal by petal

Within the

Soft luminescent rays

Releasing words

Rising like fairy dust

Into the cerulean sky

The indigo sky

Tenderly forming into verses

That flow from the fountain

Nestled within the heart

Guided by teachers

Upon the path

Filled with

Love, hope, faith

Inspiration, joy,

Wonder, mystery

Magic, beauty

Wisdom and reflection

The poet’s lotus

Opening petal by petal

Within the luminescent rays

Releasing words

Dancing and echoing

Tenderly waltzing into verses

Flowing from the fountain

Nestled within

The heart, the spirit and the soul

The poet’s lotus

Opening petal by petal

In love’s light

For you……………..

THE PAINTER and THE POET

Hues of color

Upon the pallet

Canvas resting

Upon the easel

The painter

Waits for

Inspiration

Creation

To unfold within

The hands and into the brush

Transforming the blank canvas

Into images

Of beauty, awe, enlightenment

Of sorrow, hope, faith

Love and light

Immortalized

Blank pages

Upon the desk

The poet

Waits for

Inspiration

Creation

To blossom

Within the hands

And into the pen

Capturing moments

Of love, hope, faith

Beauty, awe, mystery and wisdom

Falling into verse upon the pages

The painter and the poet

Unfold with inspiration

Capturing moments

Through the brush and the pen

Immortalized forever

NEITHER ASLEEP OR AWAKE

In the stillness

Of a mystical morn

Neither asleep nor awake

She found herself walking down

A dusty dirt road

Grass lands and water to her left

Women dressed in vibrant colorful

Hues dotted the landscape

Cattle and camels

Strolled by her

As did passersby

Never noticing her

She hears nothing

She only sees with acute vividness

She senses the sun’s heat along the dusty road

But does not feel it

A humble place before her

People entering and exiting

Men dressed in orange and saffron meander about

A tree decorated in regal homage

As a monk sits in quiet reverence

People pass by her

Never noticing

Do they not see her?

Entering this humble place

She walks to its center

In wonderment

She stood

Gazing upon Its ornate beauty

Candles flickered casting serene shadows

Incense rises and encompasses her

But she cannot smell its aroma

In the midst

She watches people admire its beauty

They mingle and pass by her

As if she were not there

She turned

Her head rose high

Behold

A golden Buddha sitting in lotus upon an altar

Candles flicker

As an array of color surrounds

In homage

Standing in the midst

Of this simplistic wonderment

Comforted her

How did she get here?

Why is she here?

Why do people never take notice of her presence?

Suddenly!

A procession of monks dressed in orange and saffron

Entered the room

Walking silently in reflection

Their peace-filled auras consumed her

As the last monk passed by her,

He suddenly stopped

Turned towards her

He is young and slender with a serene face

His eyes widen

His mouth drops open with astonishment

Their eyes lock

She is mystified

He sees her!

He slowly turned around

And followed his brothers out of the temple

As she watched

Suddenly!

With a tremendous jolt

She leapt up

Released from neither sleep or awake

Finding herself

In her bed

And not walking through the lands of India

How could this be?………

SERENITY BY THE SEA

 

Summer’s morn

Sitting by the illuminated shore

Scattered with seaweed and rocks

In the company of gulls

Relaxing too

Waves to and fro

In rhythmic time

Sparkling like diamonds

Colorful hues

Beneath the sea

Tempting for exploration

A token perhaps

Its briny aroma awakens

The senses

Of a sleepy soul

Its wind soothes

Waves to and fro

Sparkling

As if they were holding

Precious jewels

And then disappear

In a moment’s flash

Breathing in

Breathing out

With each ebb and flow

Silently sowing the seeds of inner calm

Breathing in

Breathing out

With each ebb and flow

Serenity by the sea

COME, BESIDE ME

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

See how the light

Plays upon the mountain peaks

How the eagles and hawks

Soar

Greeting the rising sun

If you listen closely

You will hear their wings

Echoing in the wind

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

By the crackling fire

So serene are the lakes

Against the mountains

Listen, the wolves are calling

Let us dance within

The luminescent rays

Of the moon

In the morning,

You will see trees dressed

In earthy hues

We can dance in the sun’s rays too

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

See the pallet of hues

Displayed before us

The water lilies

The roses

The butterflies

See the pathways of stone

And how they give way

To ornate fountains

And statues of pristine white

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

And behold

The turquoise sea

Shimmering within the rays

Listen to the wave’s gentle tune

So relaxing

Is it not?

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

Overlooking the mighty canyon

Within the setting sun

See how the walls

As I play my flute for you

Become wondrous hues of color

Reds, oranges, and purple

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

Listen to the symphony

All around you

Let the music

Become a part of you

Come, sit beside me

By the smoldering

Incense of love

And just be

Because where you are

I am with you

Come, sit beside me

Nestle within my arms

For together

We are love

And so

Shall we remain

PINK RUG!

 

Gertieone

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Her warmth

Her silliness

Upon her pink rug

Full of catnip

And toys askew

Her companionship

Her coat of silky black

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Her conversations

And then walking away

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Her comfort

Her love

Her protectiveness

In times of despair and sorrow

Brought joy and peace

In times of loneliness

She comes to mind

Although

Her presence is no longer

She still inspires and gifts

From afar

Where the light shines

Laughter

Joy

And comfort

Every time she comes to mind

In times of loneliness

Gertie illuminates

The loneliness

Turning it into

Peace and comfort

Within forevermore

Echoes from the Flute

 

Solemn sounds

Echo from the flute

Passages of time

Quivering in the mist

Pathways become sand storms

And drift into the abyss

Solemn sounds

Echo from the flute

Stepping aside

From the noise

Chaos

To find solace

Within the heart

Where the light

Forever shines

Where cascades

From the fountain

Nourish with its sweet nectar

Solemn sounds

Echo from the flute

Passages of time

Quiver within the mist

Shrouds of what was

Solemn sounds

Echoes from the flute

Waiting with hope

For love’s return

And you……
