In the Evening of Our Minds - Aug 31, 2010

In the Evening of Our Minds

The quiet hum of fragile wings of burnished gold
Gently races through a hollow ring
Whirring within falling leaves of ancient trees
A sudden change of season brings

Astounding measures softly wake unchecked lists
Found in all your distant memories
Skating along a lucid sea of hazy dreams
Inside unvisited shades of history

Could we all be listening with enchanted hearing
To the wings lovely whirring hum
Softly waking our most distant memories
Of seasons that did not come

How fragile are those wings of shiny burnished gold
Can they fill the emptiness of the ring
As we recall those unchecked lists of hazy dreams
When those wings of gold come a visiting

In the evening of our minds, we hear the fragile wings
Racing through our list of things to do
We lie wondering if we will ever fill the hollow ring
Before all our change of seasons, say adieu

Kiss of a Crimson Poppy - August 30, 2010

Kiss of a Crimson Poppy
Last night I sweetly dreamt of fragrant flowers
In a changing kaleidoscope awhirl
Twirling as I yielded to their stunning presence
Thrilling as they gently swirled

I twirled and twirled inhaling the freshest heaven
I never knew could possibly exist
Lost inside an unforgettable aromatic world
My senses will never forget

A touch of satin rose petals brushed my cheek
As purple violets tickled my nose
Crimson poppies slipped though my fingers
Gently kissing the tips of my toes

I believe I found heaven in my dream last night
Twirling in an aromatic silken bliss
When I felt the touch on the tips of my toes
Of a crimson poppies kiss

Unconfined - August 29, 2010


Enlightened by the insight found in ultimate reasoning
Your emotions run as bitter as wine
Wisdom gained as you find the conclusions
Riding on the backseat of your mind

A beam of comprehension, the likeness of a spark
Abolishes the dark shadows of the day
As your dedication to leave the acts of suppression
Is slowly poured into the vessel of clay

Feel the glorious liberation, freedom from restraint
Pouring from the vessel so free
As you release your spirit from those who confine
From the clay vessel of boundaries

Pour the fire of comprehension and enlightenment divine
Into your vessel of clay abundantly
Take up your glorious wings and fly into the radiant sun
Unconfined and so wonderfully free

Tears of the Bluest Moon - August 28, 2010

Tears of the Bluest Moon

Captivating radiance streams from the glowing reinforcement
Satisfying the anchoring of the bluest moon
Appealing to celestial spheres with such delightful notions
Reflecting off the glass of a bottomless lagoon

Swirling kisses of lighted jubilance dance upon the waves
Sweetly admiring the gratifying view
Tasting all the glints of teardrops falling from his face
Transparent as the crystal fallen dew

Angelic faces with wings of gossamer appear upon the glow
Staring up wistfully at the bluest moon
Wondering if he cried because the sun had left his side
When she disappeared behind a sandy dune

An enthralling music filled the air from the wings of gossamer
Singing truth to the tears of the bluest moon
Words of heavenly delight filled his aching soul that night
Reassurance he found in their tune

The captivating radiance still streams from the glowing
Yet the bluest moon cries there no more
See the bluest hue disappear with all the glints of tears
As he watches for his sun from the shore

Link of the Spirit - August 27, 2010

Link of the Spirit

A blush of former meditation lies inside the tender vision
Of a fascination portrayed in harmony
Scattered pieces distinctly measured, acquired by only faith
Divided between our hearts in unity

A spontaneous transfiguration manifests in gathered wisdom
In our mutual sharing of the mysteries of truth
As we incite in motion our thirst for the energy of life
Carried within the lines of our roots

The spirit that we divinely share in all our tender visions
Is delicate yet resilient in all ways
Unbound but clear and witnessed in the evolution
Of the joining of our hearts every day

My Sea of Wonder - August 26, 2010

My Sea of Wonder

A taste of heavenly wonder greets my adoring face
In the distinct form of salty spray
Such magnificent showers of mist filled hours
You bless me with each day

A lullaby of mesmerizing verse I hear in every wave
Crashing upon your delightful shore
My heart cannot help but sing along with you
Deeply love you even more

I faintly hear the distant cries of the soaring gulls
Impassioned by the sight of thee
I wonder if you intensely bless their tiny souls
The way that you bless me

I feel the warmth begin to fade from the setting sun
Soon, I know I must leave your side
Travel along your sandy shores, safely to my home
Knowing in my dreams, you will still abide

Becoming - August 25, 2010


Are you looking out the window of effortless perception
Glancing with no interest at the ordinary land
Planning a concise method of astounding metamorphosis
Exacting some excitement in the plan

Do you envision spaces filled with elegant contemplation
Titillating predictions of delight
Then polish and enhance your wings of gossamer
Seize the very moment and take flight

Soar into the gilded heavens with an optimistic smile
Seeking out the challenge of the rare
Flourish in the glowing essence on the edge of reality
Taking hold of the potential, you find there

A transformation of your spirit will unfold in conclusion
As you soar into the depths of your plan
An astounding metamorphosis has taken place inside
Sculpted by the imagination at your command

Memorized In Spaces - August 24, 2010

Memorized In Spaces

Your memorized replies haunt all of these hallowed spaces
Winding profusely around the precious truth
Dispersing beads of splendor into the sweetest memories
That I will always have and hold of you

The ink will never ever fade, or vanish from these pages
Which hold the words, deeply written in my soul
Engraved in these hallowed spaces of the precious truth
Completing, the other half of the whole

Glowing gifts of revelations sweetly haunt my memories
With the spirit of the Muse you put in place
As I respond to your replies in the crystal ink of my tears
With a smile of blissful joy upon my face

No matter where I roam or where this life may take me
These engravings are etched into my heart
Memorized in spaces, of the tracks of my tears of joy
Never from my spirit to depart

Precious Time - August 23, 2010

Precious Time

You earnestly plea with precious time to slow down just a bit
So you can accomplish more in your day
Holding tightly to his swinging hands in desperation
To place another second into play

Your attempts to slow him down he finds quite endearing
Smiling at you from his spinning face
Wondering if you even recall your pleas of yesterday
Crying that his hands were stuck in place

Precious time seems to always swiftly fly right past you
When you find you are running late
His hands are spinning round, faster and faster
Accelerating more, if you hesitate

Precious time slows for no one, nor does he accelerate
He passes by us constantly, the same
Laughing at all the fickle faces there, staring at his hands
Which not a one of them, is able, to tame

Quiet of the Offing - August 22, 2010

Quiet of the Offing
Look yonder at the graceful misty suggestions
Delivering a gentle welcoming gain
Evanescent, yet so remarkably memorable
Infused with the kiss of rain

A fine gossamer glaze of crystalline blue
Creates a jubilant rhapsody
Vigorously dancing within the rushing embrace
Of the passion, known as the sea

Flawless perfection, delicately fragile as porcelain
Unfaltering, lines of exquisite detail
Quietly content the eye of the beholder
On a stately sensational scale

There is splendid comfort in the quiet of the offing
As the cherished waves rush ashore
Appealing to all of our tender hearts and minds
Compelling the joyful need for more

Taste Your Words - August 21, 2010

Taste Your Words
"You must taste your words before you speak"
She said, with the sweetest smile
Always consider the feelings of those around you
Let them rest on your tongue awhile

Do not be so quick to claim your bitter offenses
When others behave annoyingly
The truth is, you may be being too sensitive
She said, looking straight at me

There are some who are forceful and opinionated
With powerfully strong personalities
Do not ever let them mistreat you, protect yourself
Using your wisdom of tact, gracefully

Some will walk the line between being assertive
And overstepping their bounds
If you will deal with them using your softest nature
The rewards you reap are better, I've found

Suspended in Introspection - August 20, 2010

Suspended In Introspection

You sit quietly under the powerful tree of introspection
Looking inside your own soul
Seeking to find what you hold deep inside
Sacrificing precious time for it all

Not a single move do you make for hours on end
Watching the world pass you by
You see that old sun rise up in the morning
Never closing your eyes

Familiar faces and voices you know all to well
Pass right by your quiet space
However, you do not speak or nod your head
Although, you feel their eyes on your face

You hear the melodious sound of the birds in your tree
Singing their sweet, lilting song to you
You never think twice about moving along in the day
As you are still seeking to find the truth

The light of the radiant sun no longer visits you
He has went away to rest his eyes
Yet, he sent his friend the glorious moon to shine
To watch you from the midnight sky

Still there you sit in silence, looking inside yourself
Contemplating ever so quietly
Until the coolest breeze softly touches your face
Releasing your soul's mysteries

Reassurance - August 19, 2010


I see you twinkling back at me from the midnight sky
Sending guiding light through the air
Instilling marvelous wonder into my beating heart
With the sweetest peace, that you share

Your light fills my soul with the sustenance I seek
To reestablish all that has gone astray
Filling me with the courage of everlasting hope
The strength I need to walk another day

No longer do I sit alone, desolate in my despair
With you there above me in my sky
As I can hear you singing inside this soul of mine
To take heart, as the future is so bright

Sweet guiding light in heaven, twinkling back at me
Such peace and contentment you bring
As you shed your light, I see all the possibilities
Waiting for me now in life's wings

Promise of a Rainbow - Aug. 18, 2010

Promise of a Rainbow

Can you hear the call of splendid change ringing in the air
The voice of fate resounding in a roar
You can call the sound you hear coincidence if you like
I believe that fortune is knocking at your door

You have spent your life preparing for a beautiful dream
To be painted in your heart like a rainbow
This promise is ringing in the air, resounding like thunder
Will you hear the call of your dream, or let it go

Within your heart lies the courage of the fiercest lion
Enfolded in your strength of compassion
This you have built in a lifetime of steady preparation
To follow your dreams and your passions

Look upwards into the heavens at the clearest sky
See the rainbow you know your heart is due
Good fortune is knocking with the brightest sunshine
Fate has painted that rainbow for you

Unfazed - August 17, 2010


Subtle whispered streams of gentle sighs
Elate silken strands of hair
As they softly dance and weave upon the neck
Of the yielding radiance they find there

An exquisite submission sweetly lies divine
In all the welcoming allure
Felt like the velvet kisses of whispered fire
In the obscure haze of ashes they have stirred

A touch of heaven, swiftly moves the earth
Inhaled by the single silken strands
Tempting enchantment in a fiery blaze of motion
Within the whisper of love's command

Deeply mesmerizing in their intriguing flow
The radiance is invited, by the gently streaming haze
Yet still you wonder if the whispered streams will be welcomed
If the spirit remains unyielding and unfazed

Sword of Awareness - Aug. 16, 2010

 Sword of Awareness
A sword of awareness can be drawn to deflect all sides
Averting misleading deception
Striking immense fear into the heart of those
Who can see your apparent perception

A razor-sharp discernment will cut straight to the chase
Shrewdly seeing all in undying motion
Rendering powerful blows to break down a charade
Bringing a swift end to chaotic commotion

The spirit of instinct wields your sword of awareness
Sharpened by the vision of your third eye
While knowing rules the heart of the sword bearer
Gallantly fighting through chaos and lies

Do you have hold of the hilt of your sword of awareness
Lifting your blade of discernment up high
Are your edges of perception sharpened and ready
To slice through the chaos and lies?

Kiss of Promise - August 15, 2010

 Kiss of Promise

A kiss of promise, brushes your dispassionate composure
Gently opening your silent heart
Inviting possibilities, you had decided never could exist
Resulting in a fiery burning start

A spirit of harmonious splendor has gently grazed your hand
Inspiring you to open up your eyes
Daring you to attempt objection to its lovely graceful plea
Leaving you with only joyful sighs

A kiss of promise leaves one breathless to the possibilities
Of following their former heartfelt dreams
Stirs you in anticipation of a journey you thought lost
With the setting of yesterday’s sunbeams

Return the kiss of promise, with an open invitation
Explore all the possibilities it holds
Hold the hand of the spirit of a gentle harmonious splendor
Do not let your heart remain empty and cold

Keeper of the Keys - August 14, 2010

Keeper of the Keys

You stand holding the golden keys that unlock the doors
To so many wonderful secret places
Fully knowing the others are looking back at you
With their deeply questioning faces

Do you even understand the responsibility you hold
As the keeper of these golden keys
Are you willing to open up those secret doors
Widely, for all the world to see

Are you holding back in a moment of hesitation
Doubting yourself and your admission
While knowing deeply in your heart of hearts
You will not falter in your mission

Look into the revealing mirror of life's given wisdom
Behold experience reflecting back at you
Take courage from what you hold in your convictions
Pick up the keys, you know what you must do

You are the keeper of the keys of wonderful secret places
The only one who can unlock the doors
Share what you hold inside with all the questioning faces
Giving them the hope they came here for

Wrong Choices - August 13, 2010

Wrong Choices

You quickly passed into the crystal wall of reflection
To marvel at inciting bits of temptation
Found yourself lost and intoxicated in false delusions
While your energy dissipated into frustration

You looked upon treasures just out of your reach
Sadly crying out in dissatisfaction
Continuously attempting to hold and pursue them
Thinking they held satisfaction

You lived in your imagination in a castle built with sand
Forgetting to lay a strong foundation
Upon a shore in a land full of tumultuous storms
Where it rains without cessation

So still you became as if you could no longer move
All your energy expended for naught
Soon, forgetting who you were and all that you stood for
Everything that you had been taught

You are not trapped inside the crystal wall of reflection
You are free to leave most any day
Stop living in your castle of crumbling sand
Because of wrong choices you made

Building Straw Houses on Sand - August 11, 2010

Building Straw Houses on Sand
Has unquenchable wanderlust taken you places
You had never intended to see
Down paths of misadventure apart from your nature
Which separated your honor from reality

Has this old world and all its material treasures
Called you away from your home
Seducing you with the idea of instant gratification
Until you left stability and comfort to roam

Do you now find the need to focus on practicality
Your world to better understand
As you no longer wish to chase unrealistic ideals
While building straw houses on sand

Then take this moment of stillness and quiet your soul
Embrace the melody of your song
Turn your eyes inward to seek your balance
Be still and you will find home

Call of Love's Embrace - August 10, 2010

Call of Love's Embrace

What calls to you in the loudest voice you have ever heard
Sending waves of tingles down your spine
Lifts your spirit to a realm of heaven here on earth
Rushes all around you in whispers so divine

What can swiftly bring you to your bended knees
Send your spirit soaring through the air
Lift your tender heart to places you have never seen
Strip your precious pride completely bare

What can make you want to change your life's direction
Look deep inside yourself with honesty
Embrace a life that carries a precious meaning
Open your eyes wide and truly see

Love calls you in the loudest voice you have ever heard
Rushes all around you in whispers so divine
Lifts your spirit to a realm like you have never seen
Sending waves of tingles down your spine

Love will swiftly bring you to your bended knees
Make you set aside your precious pride
Embracing you with a life full of honest meaning
Sweetly changing who you are inside

Synchronization - August 8, 2010


Come closer, said the softest whisper in your ear
Listen quietly to the gentle flow
Of the tranquil waters running through your spirit
Providing peace and healing for your soul

Dive and swim into these peaceful cleansing waters
They are pristine and clear
Feel them wash away imbalance in your life
Relinquish all your fears

Deeply inhale the essence of sweet moderation
A lovely aroma so divine
Drifting into your spirit from the tranquil waters
A soothing solace for your mind

Listen to the rhythmic flow of these healing waters
Releasing balance into your soul
As you look inside yourself and take inventory
Of what you must let go

Now stand up proudly in the peaceful waters
With one foot settled on dry land
As you ground yourself in mind, body and spirit
Harmony takes your hand

Beautiful Heart - August 4, 2010

Beautiful Heart

Smooth and cool as pebbles cast upon the sand
The unique essence of your voice I hear
Echoing through my spirit triumphantly in command
Of every bit of resistance I have near

The deepest pools of heaven are that of which I see
Each time I gaze into your eyes
I find I am drowning in your victorious glance
While stripping myself bare of all my pride

Such sweet anticipation that glows into a flame
The very sight of your hands ignites in me
Evoking melodic recollections of immense pleasure
If not felt, one would never believe

So heavenly is the beauty that I hear and I see
Yet, that which I love the most stands apart
You are the most magnificent man that I've ever known
But most of all, I love your beautiful heart

Sleeping Trees - August 02, 2010

 Sleeping Trees
A cool breeze lulled the trees to sleep
The wise old owl did cry
All the forest creatures looked at him
Shook their heads and sighed

Their eyes are closed, can't you see, he said
Not a single one has moved
They all smiled back in response
As if they all approved

A complete rush of stillness fell upon the air
Like one had never felt before
Nothing moved at all or stirred about
Upon the forest floor

The wise old owl sat completely stunned in wonder
Colossal eyes, searching all around
Thinking perhaps the trees were not the only ones
Who were sleeping sound

Suddenly the earth began to move and tremble
Shaking everything within his sight
All was stirring in the quiet forest
Trembling now in fright

The wise old owl no longer felt the breeze
Which lulled the trees to sleep
Now afraid to even move one inch
His stillness he did keep

Such awful terror filled his tiny heart
Off racing went his mind
Wondering if the trees were now awake
Angry and unkind

Fading Ink - August 01, 2010

Fading Ink

Countless pages are silently turned in unread books
With quiet secrets passed through the ages
Mysteriously holding inside, wisdom passed down
Deep thoughts of the sages

Sensational scenes of marvelously profound dreams
Lie patiently there waiting upon the fading ink
The rich abundant thoughts of great men of worth
With an innate drive to uniquely think

A gentle breeze of knowledge blows across one's face
Softly calling out a sweep of welcoming hail
Tempting minds with a voracious need to learn
To come and read their untold tales

Take a moment out in your life's seeking journey
To rest your eyes upon these unread lines
Read and treasure the wisdom offered in measure
Satisfy the hunger you hold in your mind

If you find your mind is hungry and seeking appeasement
Driven deeply, by a powerful need to learn
Take a taste of the great wisdom left there in earnest
Satisfaction waits, in those pages you turn
