Wooded Path

Writer’s muse and artist’s canvas

Whispers along a wooded path

Wind inspired melodies carry in the air

Twin Waterfalls

Twin waterfalls trickle side by side

A stream divided for a short time

A pool below erases their form

Churning together into a frothy foam

Calmness erupts; they blend into one

Together at last; gift from above

What time erased nature reunites

No longer darkness without a light

Merged together; a beautiful soul

Their path together forever whole

Wishes Dream

When anguish rages like a soaring kite

Wishes dream by stars so bright

Sunshine saves a dark, stormy night

So hope can feed a guiding light

Ocean Dreams

Ocean Dreams

Sea life dances, gulls soar

Ocean sings a thunderous roar

I long for carefree sandy walks

While waves crash against water-carved rocks

Relish a world of chaos so serene

Soothed by seaweed a lively shade of breen

I sit and wiggle my sand covered toes

All the while inspired to lyrical prose

Ghost Memories

For the time being, please stop here. Let ghost memories swirl around you. Envelope you like a late winter fog smothering the last remnants of snow.

Stop running. Memories have no legs, but cannot be outrun for they are experts in the art of pursuit, relentless in the chase.

Stand firm. Relinquish power to the moment. Enjoy the leaf blessed with vivid colors as it floats down the stream. Experience its journey. The beauty of a single leaf touches the spirit more than the memory of a hundred trees.

Surrender.  Azure skies remain despite the gray. Even the tiniest bird can soar above the clouds. Flex its wings in even the strongest wind.

For the time, being please stop here. Be the hunter, not the prey. Find strength, not solitude. Ghost memories need not haunt you.

Pen and Chisel

Thoughts fly free.

Dreams sleep in silence.

Voices soar when spoken.

But written words remain, carved in granite like nature’s masterpiece.

Relish a world of chaos so serene

Soothed by seaweed a lively shade of green
