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

WITHIN THE STILLNESS…….Of the Night

Soft

Warm cool breezes

Lilacs whisper

Through the pale moon evening

Within the stillness

Candles flicker

Ever so gently

Smooth sounds

Of Jazz

Appear within

The ambience

Relaxing

Sipping the wine

Of reflection

Soft

Warm cool breezes

Lilacs whisper

Through the pale moon evening

Candle lights

Dance

Flicker

Ever so gently

Waiting

Near an empty wine glass

Wondering

Where you are

Or have gone

Within the

Stillness of the

Night

IT All BEGAN…

She walks

In the world

Shrouded in mystery

What is behind those eyes?

Those soft green eyes

What secrets does she hold?

What wisdom does she possess?

Who is she?

What does she hold dear?

Who really knows this solitary figure?

Where has she traveled?

What experiences has she had?

What is her path?

Only glimpses of her

Reside within the verses

She

There is more to her

Depth, height, width, length and breath

Of her being

Who knows the mysteries of her?

A lover perhaps?

What lies behind the invisible veil?

She wraps around her

She walks

In the world

Present

Silent

Waiting, watching and listening

What an intriguing, passionate countenance

Who is she?

Those soft green eyes

And it all began

With a question

But ended in

Mystery

For nothing was revealed

NESTLED WITHIN A PINE GROVE

Nestled within a

Pinegrove

Birds chirping

Rushing river

Nearby

Watching the red-wings

Glide within the wind

Darting to and fro

Regaling in song

Keeping vigil

For the Great Blue Heron

Now not seen

Owls

Communicating

Hidden from view

Within the forest of trees

Elusive to the eye

Haunting sound

Unmistakable

Awesome wonder

Serenity takes hold

Water moving

In poetic motion

Meditative

Stillness

Lovers in restful slumber

As the calls of owls

Linger on

In rhythmic hoots

Calming

Relaxing

In the warmth

Caressed by the wind

Rush

Swoosh

Of the passing rapids

Adding ambience

To a lazy afternoon

Doing nothing

Other than what inspires

How refreshing it is

Nurturing the heart’s desires

For nothing else matters

On this lazy afternoon

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!

Ooh That Voice

Ooh that voice

Across the airwaves

Resounding

Tugging at the heart

With every breath

Every word

That fell from your hand

And onto the pages

Like sunlit cascades

Over a tranquil pool

Of turquoise

Revealing your tender spirit

Wisdom

In which you saw the world

Love

Ooh that voice

Soulful

Tender

Joyful

Touching

Ooh that voice

Resounding

With breathless enchantment

Ooh that voice

Heavenly

Is there

No doubt

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
