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?………

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

I’LL BE THERE…. TO CATCH YOU

 

When the ruts and ditches

Of life render falls

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

When you need a shoulder

To cry upon

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

When you need the light to shine

When darkness succumbs

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

Lighting the way

When love wanes and falls away

I will be there

To catch you and hold you close

In love’s tender embrace

No matter

Where you are

Within time and space

I am here for you

For I am always with you

There is no greater love

Then my love

For you, my dearest

I am here for you

And I will always

Catch you and hold you close

Because you are

The Soul of my Love

ODE TO JOY – THE BUTTERFLY!

Butterfly

Within the warmth

Of the garden

Softened by breezes

You come one by one

Dance and flutter

Amongst the brilliant hues

Mesmerizing

Enchanting

Dressed in your colorful clothing

Delighting and exciting

As you dance

Silently in the wind

Within the rays of light

The child watches

Captivated by joy

As she

Sees the beauty

And the treasure unfold

Before her eyes

CHORDS OF LOVE

 

Here by

The crackling fire

Warming thy being

Strumming the guitar

Feeling the chords

Revealing words

Composing into song

Thoughts of you

Reflections of emotions

Coming through the chords

Echoing your charms

Like a lullaby

Your light

And your love

Illuminating

Everything you touched

With grace

Here by

The crackling fire

As embers rise and dance

Then disappear

Your content and humble spirit

Quieted the thunder

Of a restless soul

And softened the fire

Within thy being

As the moon’s tranquil rays

Release enchantment

Into the night

Feeling the chords

Of emotion well up within

Revealing words

Composing into song

Thinking of you

And where you have gone

Wondering if this song

If ever written

Will capture the

Essence of your charms

To return

For you, are the rose

Nestled within thy heart

And thy night’s companion

Through these chords of love and desire

Under the moon’s rays

Nestled by the warm

Brilliant crackling fire

Is the only remembrance

Of you, my sweet rose
