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!

To the Ordinary

Used

To think

That thy life

Was ordinary

Nowhere to go

Nothing wondrous

Hum drum

Drab and dull

Always wanting

To fly

With the birds

Still do

At times

Hum drum

Going through the motions

No direction

No purpose

Just existing

Walking life

Alone

Unattached

Free

Confessing

Treasure it

Words

Whispering through the wind

Through the voice of nature

Imagination

Unencumbered

Blossoming

Into stories

Inspiration

Streaming like the

Rays of  the sun

Moon

Glittering like

The stars

Then

Ordinary

Became not

So ordinary

It became extraordinary

With happenings

Unexplained

Different eyes

Seeing

Different ears

Hearing

Listening

Becoming attuned

Adventurous

Wonderment

Astonishment

Alone

Unattached

Free

Walking between

Ordinary and extraordinary

Learning

Patience

Being peace

Being Love

Being understanding

Whilst navigating

The way

Of thy life’s journey

When reflections come

Those moments

Spaces in time

No more

And yet

Some still are

Realizing

That ordinary

Is the mind’s game

Of what it

Life ought to be

But not so

Kept

Locked away

In the treasure chest

They reside

Unheard

Unseen

But hidden within view

Thy journey

Continues

To what end

Do not know

Yet to be revealed

Its purpose

Its destination

Unknown

Known

Is this..

Within the ordinary

Resides

Extraordinary

YOU TAUGHT ME

You taught me

How to find the light

How to find the love

How to laugh

How to sing in

Mind, body and spirit

How to dance within the symphonies of nature

How to rest beside a crackling fire

Watching the flames dance

Letting all cares drift away

Falling into meditative stillness

How to soar

With the hawks and the eagles

How to admire the sparkling diamonds

Within the night’s cloak

And dream

How to just be

Wherever I am

In stillness

Calm and serenity

But still working on that

You taught me

To just be the true me

To follow thy heart

Wherever it leads

To walk life

With peace and clarity

You taught me

How to find the light

How to find the love

The joy that shines bright

When all seemed lost

For all shall be well

You taught me

And now I see

The love, the beauty, the joy, the peace and the understanding

That resides in thee

And I am still blossoming
