PASSAGES

Passing of winter

Into the spring

Where I loved to sit

Content with thee

The love of thy being

Thy life’s foundation

Where I loved to sit

Fragrant with roses

Pungent lilies

Dancing in love

With thee

As the birds

Joyfully sang

Lovely with glee

In dawn’s light

And throughout

Shimmering rays of light

Warmth and joy

Arrive with thee

Stay with thee

Dancing in the love

With thee

The peace

That overtakes

Thy being

Lifting away

The cares

The aches

The pains

The worries

The frustrations

The angsts

That is life’s lot

Those are fleeting moments

That eventually ceases to be

For the winters of thy being

Shall pass always

Into spring’s eternal gaiety

Where thy being

Loves to sit

Content with thee

The love of thy being

Of thy life

And there shall be

None other

Because

It is better to sit with thee

And watch the winters

Pass into spring with thee

Whilst resting in

Peace and love

With thee

WINGS OF DREAMS

Walking

In the

Sultriness

Under the setting sun

Looking up

You were there

Flying

Gliding

Your wings

Mighty and bold

Ribbons of white

Along your wings

Decorate your mantle

Of blue grey feathers

Grace

Beauty

Within your

Prehistoric looking

Aura

Of wonderment

Seeing you

Fly and glide

With the wind

I go with you

For a moment

In time

Soaring

Soaring

Taking flight

On

To

Awaiting dreams

Adventures

For there is no thought

You just fly

Creating this

Magical wonder

For thine eyes

The hawks

The eagles

The little ones

And you

My friend

The Great Blue Heron

All captivate me

Within

The awe

The magic

The freedom

The grace

The beauty

And the

Fantasy of flight

For those moments

Auspicious

Moments

I join in

Soaring

Soaring

Soaring

Just as I did

In my youth

And

With you still

Upon your

Wings of dreams

UNDER THE OLD OAK TREE

 

Sitting under

An old oak

On the cusp of summer

Wispy clouds

Against the pale blue sky

Refreshed by breezes

Delightful birds

Serenade

Trees dance

With each caress of the wind

Verdant hues

Upon the steps

Of an old house

1872

Preserved in trust

Over looking

The pond

In motion

Under the sparkling sun

A robin

Hopping along the grass

Displaying his rustic orange

Oh! Now a family

Tenderly sweet

Roosters resound

Lazy day

Within summer’s dawn

Seeking inspiration

Refreshed

Restored

In the quietude

Of the wind

Nestled in my beloved

Nature’s embrace

Pages blowing

As the verses

Spill from

Thy hands

Challenge, yes

Distraction, no

It is my wonderland

Peaceful serenity

Where the heart can sing

The poet’s reverie

A robin stopped by

Mesmerized in quiet awe

By the one sipping

An iced chai latte

Upon the steps

Under an old oak

Looking for inspiration

Oh, look!

A baby squirrel

Sitting tall

In the grass

Adorable

So within

The symbolism of the robin

I found it

For it is time

To sing

Your own song

And begin a new chapter

With grace, tenacity

And perseverance

Ride with the winds

Of your passion, girl!

“IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD”

Eagle Tree4 3.20.18

Dusk

20th day of March

Magical

Wide-eyed wonderment

Beheld thine eyes

Within the Birchwoods

Serene water

Cold breezes

Standing

Captivated

Humbleness over took

Thy being

The dream of a child

Who once nestled herself

Within the school’s library

Her favorite haunt

Browsing an encyclopedia

Came upon a picture

Of a soaring Bald Eagle

Lifting her away

In ecstasy

She composed

A poem

Called “Wings”

But was laughed at

By classmates

She ignored them

Through the dawns

Of her life’s journey

Dream visions

Of a soaring eagle

Would become her totem

Glorious indeed

But she had

Never seen

With waking eyes

Until an

Unexpected turn

By the pond

Or was it?

Revealed to her

Perched high

In a tree

Her totem

Regal and majestic

Enchanted her with awe

She humbly

Bowed with sacredness

His eyes met hers

Awestruck

Silence

Adrenaline

Flowing through her veins

Wonderment beheld

As she framed

This moment

In time

Upon the soul of her being

The dream

Of a flower child

Became fulfilled

Exultation rose

Within her

As he took flight

And disappeared

Within the rays

Of the setting sun

She

Standing in awe

Bliss

Soared with the eagle

In an unforgettable

Alluring sacredness

That will always be

Apart of her

And thy soul is

Richer now

Because she saw

The Bald Eagle

And watched it take flight

With her very own eyes

She now knows

The meaning of

“In your own backyard”

A magical moment

Indeed

And in the words

Of Nature’s voice and steward

Our good friend, John Denver

I’ll say…

“Far out!”

SIDE BY SIDE

Side by side

We walk

Separated

By the veil

Sensing you

Feeling you

The love that comforts

The light that illuminates

The recesses of life

The knowing

As we walk

Side by side

Separated

By the veil

Two worlds

Parallel

You are there

Peaceful

Blissful

In your world

Side by side

We walk

Separated

By the veil

But you

Are there

By thy side

With radiant love

That comforts

Your guiding light

Illuminates

The recesses of life

As I walk

Side by side

With you

The veil between us

Your love

Your light

Is the healing balm

That soothes

Thy misty eyes

Gifting peace

As we walk

Side by side

Until the veil

No longer is

JUST A HUMBLE POET

 

It’s cold

Dark

And lonely

Nestled by

The window

Drooping roses

Time to change

I’d say

Candles flicker

With no scent

It’s cold

Dark

And lonely

I am stuck

In a rut

But it

Shall pass

The wise sages say

It’s cold

Dark

And lonely

Nestled by

The window

Cold breezes

Creep in through

The window’s ledge

But all I have

Is you

The words and verses

That dance and play

Through my mind

Cascading down

And into creation

For I am

But a humble poet

Unknown

Touching hearts

Through the looking glass

Just a humble poet

Indeed
