BY THE MOON

By the light

Of the moon

I sit

Captured in

The moment

Enchanting melodies

Softly echo

Around thy being

As the fire

Dances

Behind the glass

Casting shadows

Flickering about

The night

Is still

As the moon

Glows with delight

For it was dusk

Passing by

A barren tree

Surrounded by bleak

Snow

Perched high

Ever so still

I saw him

The elusive twilighter

Who awakens me

From slumber

When he is near

With his simple

Mysterious call

For it is

By the light

Of the moon

Captured in

The moment

Of lore

Of reflection

When I saw

The elusive twilighter

Never before seen

With thine eyes

And when he

Comes calling

Outside my window

Once again

I shall remember

Him well

JUST BEING

Behold the essence

Of the rising sun

The joyous songs

The sweet gentle breezes

And just be

Behold the essence

Of the woodlands

The babbling brooks

The placid lakes

The running rivers

The hills and mountains

The soft green valleys

The wildflowers

And just be

Behold the essence

Of moonlit nights

By the crackling fire

Admiring the

Brilliant stars

That dot the indigo sky

And just be

Behold the essence

Of the blue sea

The cool beach sand

The warm beach sand

Between your toes

As the water gently

Caresses

And just be

Behold the essence

Of the setting sun

Over the mountains

Across the sky

Adored with colorful hues

Behold the essence

Of love

Of peace

Of stillness

Of renewal

And hope

Because like the beginning

It is the essence

Of just being

WEST WIND’S DANCE

Upon a rooftop porch

On a moonlit eve

The west wind blows

Trees bend and sway

In unison

Leaves gently glide

Resting upon the grass

Sitting wrapped in

A blanket

Watching

Listening,

Embracing

And swaying

She too

Becomes a part

Of  the west wind’s dance

Change is near….

Was it You?

She read that

You were a lover

Of windswept

Hills, vales and

Mountains painted

With flowers

Chanting birds

Peaceful woodlands

Purple hills

And tranquil lochs

 

She read that

You were a lover of

Cascading water

Murmuring streams

Flowing rivers

And lochs

 

Was it you, calling to her?

Along the green banks

Of the River Dee

As she listened

To the tranquil

Flowing rhythms

Falling into

Meditative joy….

AUTUMN within the BIRCH WOODS

In the quietude

Of you

Nestled beside

The beloved birch

Cool breezes

Waltz around thy being

Whilst the sun’s rays

Warm with its caresses

The pond so blue

Moving so beautifully

Gently

And with calmness

Rocks along the banks

Damp and wet

Shimmering in the sunlight

Reflections

Of days

When the water lilies

Delighted

When the fish jumped and plopped

When the Great Blue Heron

Was in residence

When the red-wings tickled thy heart

With joy as they fluttered

And sung

Now sitting here

As the sunlight

Cascades down upon thy being

You delight

With your colorful charms

Of warm spicy hues

All around your banks

These are new moments

To place within the treasure box

Of thy heart

To be re-opened

Anytime and be filled

With the joyous

Love and light

You gift so often

To the child of autumn

The salvation

Of thy healing

AUTUMN’S BRUNCH

Autumn’s brunch

On a quiet and placid day

Strolling through the park

Dashes of spicy hues

Brought warmth

Cool breezes

Waltzed by

Calm waters stirred

Sending ripples far and wide

Trumpets sounded

From across the sky

Descending into

Water landings

Canadian geese

Laughters arose

Fragrant aromas

And soft cascades

Pleased and soothed

The sun’s rays

Warmed and delighted

Strolling along

Country paths

Gathered colorful leaves

Peace bequeathed

Calming a restless spirit

Joys sprung forth

As the trees danced

Crows cackled

A chickadee sung

Friends about

Protection

Gaiety

And laughter

Was with her

Walking through

A grove of pine

Met a baby squirrel

Scurrying around

Noisily

For this was

Autumn’s brunch

With coffee and companionship…

AUTUMN’S RAIN

Today,

Autumn’s rain fell

Sitting nestled by the window

Beside a flickering flame

As autumn’s song

Cascaded

And the wind chimed in

Quietly waiting

Quietly embracing

Quietly refreshing

Quietly restoring

Stepping outside

The baptismal waters

Of autumn’s rain

Serenaded thy being

With its gentle touches

Change is coming

A new path

A new direction

A new awakening

A new beginning

Change, is the spice of life

Autumn’s rich warm spicy hues

Come forth

And begin prophesying

New adventures

New directions

New paths

And new beginnings…….
