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

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

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………..

VISION ON A MISTY MORN

 

Heronwhite (1)

By the birches

So serene

So misty

On this faded sunlit morn

Water of glass

Gleams within the stillness

Water lilies abloom

Hidden and nestled within

The tall grasses and fauna

The great blue heron

Gazing across the water

A magnificent

Bird of snow

Flying towards

Its shadow

Skimming across the mirror of blue

Awe beheld

Coming to rest

Within the kingdom of the birches

In silent awe

She watches

The majestic presence

Standing tall within the calm waters

A vision of pure white

Enchanting

Time escapes

As she becomes

A part of the wonder

THERE’S A PLACE

 

There is a place

Where you are not judged

Where you are always welcomed

Where someone always listens

Where you can play like

A child without rebuke

Where company is plentiful

Or if you prefer solitary reverie

Where mountains are endless

For climbing and exploring with wonderment

Where you can wander

Through adoring meadows, vibrant wild flowers,

Tall grasses and meandering valleys

Where you can rest by babbling brooks, running rivers, or serene lakes

Where majestic eagles

And valiant hawks

Soar and dance within the blue canvas

Where trees dressed in many hues wave hello

Where troubadours

Nestled within the trees

Delight

Where the whispering wind soothes

Where endless wonders simply exist

Where you can meditate and become one

Where ancient wisdom and knowledge can be sought

By watching, listening, hearing, touching and smelling the spirit of the wilderness

Nature in all her Glory and Grace

Nestled within the light of the world

Is where the path to the true self begins……….

REVOLVING DOOR

Thoughts enter

Through the

Revolving door

Rushing in

Like waves

Constant ebb and flow

Waiting for stillness

Breathing in and out

Even flow

Waiting for stillness

As thoughts

Enter through the

Revolving door

Rushing in

Like waves

Stillness

No, wait

Peace

Not yet mastered

Restless and impatient

Thoughts

Enter through

The revolving door

Rushing in

Like waves

Constant

Ebb and flow

Stillness

Waiting

So Hum

Repetitive vibration

Stilling the

Revolving door

Of thoughts

Rolling away

With the waves

Stillness coming

Perhaps

Almost there

Until

Nothing

“Do not conform to the process of meditation for transformation; let the process of meditation transform you from within”

THE POET’S WALK

 

Within nature’s sanctuary

Of reverie

Echoing high

Is the majestic hawk

Sending shivers of awe

Through her being

Soothing green hues

Dancing trees

Joyful tunes

Calm blue and white water

Shimmering like an array

Of diamonds

Within the warmth

Of soft rays

The hawk’s valiant dance

Captures her

Precious wonderment surrounds her

Placid waters

Rushing river

Babbling brooks

Streams of blue

Sauntering by green banks

Butterflies in colorful cloaks

Dance to and fro

Each step is with

Respect and sacredness

Touching trees with tender hands

Opening to meadows

Dotted with an array of vivid hues

Bees gathering the sweetness

Of the flowers

Chipmunk scurries by

Breezes so soft and tender

Within this elation of ecstasy

Is that what John Denver

Felt like

Each time he stepped

Into the pages of nature’s book of wonders?

The inspiration before him

Calmness that came to his soul

And touched his heart with joy

As it does to the child of autumn

Who communed, played and danced

To each poetic verse

That sang to her

Capturing moments

That still haunts her with

Passionate love

Each and every moment

Nature’s enchanting

Beauties of wonderment

Have become a part of her

Her mind, body and is

The spirit of inspiration

For the voice

That comes alive

Within her

Is this what John Denver

Felt, experienced

When he walked with nature?

Did his spirit, his voice

Come alive with each song

Mother Nature sang to him

Like it does for her

Each and every moment

Because when she

The child of autumn

Steps into the pages

Of nature’s book

She walks with excitement

Breathless with wonder

As she sees

Through the eyes of a child

All that surrounds her

For the first time

Sending her heart

Aflutter with

Love, joy, ecstasy and thanksgivings

And perhaps John’s spirit

Is alive within

All those who find solace

In nature

As he and the child of autumn

Found
