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

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……

FOOTSTEPS……. BY THE SEA

Footsteps

By the sea

As the waves

Roll in and out

Seagulls

Hover and cry

Waves hitting rocks

Sending bursts of briny water

Into the air

Splashing upon one’s being

Footsteps

By the sea

Warm sand

Beneath thy feet

Rays of warmth

Soothed by breezes

Footsteps

By the sea

The quietude of solitude

Mesmerized by

Contemplation

Reflections of distance memories

Within the waves

Footsteps

By the sea

Refreshing

Cleansing

Nestled within the contemplation

Of waiting

As the ocean echoes

Looking down

A rose colored rock

Placed within the shallow pool

Reaching down

As the water sparkled

Within the rays

Turning it over

Pause….Breathe…Begin again…..

Footsteps

By the sea………..

FALLING INTO YOU

Falling into the arms

Of you

Entranced by your words

That flow from

The crystal fountain

And onto the pages

Your charms

Your voice

Renders the creative muses

To dance

To sing

To soar

Within

Capturing moments

Into words

Creating picturesque elegance

As she gets lost within you

Losing moments within time

As the words echo

And come forth

Fast and furious

As the pen moves

Freely

Enjoyment within the composing

Singing and dancing

With the words of her muses and with you

Behold creative wonderment

She falls into the arms of you

Entranced by your words

With joyful elated freedom

When she does not try

The wonderment of expression

Dances within her

Words spoken by the muses

Come forth to her

And flow into her hands

Like a blossoming flower

Upon the pages

And all she has to do

Is to fall into

The arms of you

And let your bliss-filled voice

That is like no other

Cascade within her

And to just be

With the love

She knows and

Adores
