"Butterflies"

The elegance of butterflies, a brightness on the breeze
A beauty on the wing of life, all gracefulness agrees
The colours, bright and sharp beneath the sun beneath the trees
A momentary loss is gained of all one's apathies
The wind picks up, a fear is felt but still the butterfly
Gracefully, moves on above the earth beneath the sky

"The Rhyme"

It comes upon me like the wind that blasts across the sea
Unbidden, not unwelcome, is the rhyme I write to free
The words and thoughts that clutter up within my searching mind
All of life's sweet treasures and the conundrums unkind
A puzzle in the writing and a puzzle in the end
The words and thoughts and meaning that combine into a blend
That free the dreams so hidden in the corners of my mind
Now, I finally see that which, before, my eyes were blind

"Hummingbird"



The dance of hummingbird so sharp and sure
Springs to life against the bright azure
"To me", I call to boundless hummingbird
Those lightning moves, it surely never heard

"Open Wide"

I spread my arms out opened wide, lean back, I fall into
The open arms of life that hold me close and pass me through
To open, warm and gentle arms of loving in this life
No need, I find, to cringe away, facades are all the strife
Like stepping stones, upon a pond, that stand above the waves
The child is saved from drowning, life embraces what it craves
Nature brings me closer to the feel for such a way
Never far from nature will you ever see me stray
But, nature, all alone, can only be there for so much
Above the waves, upon the stones, one craves the human touch

"The mountaintop"

Looking down on vistas of all distant life
Harking to the distant song on the sweetest fife
Scanning all that moves below in forest
Still the song leaves echoes of the chorus
Scaling down that mountain is adventurous indeed
Immersed in vale's minutia is a challenge to the creed
The distant view from mountaintop is easy on the heart
Engaging in the every day is challenge from the start
The whirling tempest of the valley sets relentless pace
To keep one's head is paramount in such an enclosed space
So, tumble down the mountain on into the valley's arms
And find, up close, that life is but a myriad of charms

"Go with your heart"

"Go with your heart", the canticles sang
Along with the blustery wind
Go with your heart, all thoughts rearrange
In the tales of a heart that was twinned

Follow your heart to the end that begins
It's the whisper of wind that will know it
Follow your heart as it endlessly spins
To the wonders that life will bestow it

The canticle came
With hint of a name
That did beat like the drum of the heart
Ignoring all sense
And all recompense
So sure of the love that's a part
Of me

"A heart made of..."

A heart that's made of iron and stone
A heart that's drifted all alone
The stone and the iron melt away
Renewing pleasance kept at bay

Revealed is a heart made of water
A certainty that when it runs hotter
'Twill fill all the chamber, expand without end
It cannot be broken or shattered, again
A heart that transcends the span of the years
Make something that lasts from the care and the tears
For the love that has lasted so long
Will end and begin with a song
The heart that's been broken for all of this time
Can flourish, again, and bring wonder sublime
It may cool in the absence of heat from another
But, never to freeze or to willingly smother
As soft as the flow of a river
Running on to the end to deliver
A freshness to oceans of feelings
Past horizon of vaulted blue ceilings
Fades into this ocean
On waves of emotion
Ebb and flow with tides of the heart

"Boundless joy"


Untrammeled in the heart and soul
Unleashed, the joy begins a stroll

It seeps in through the crevices unnoticed by them all
And bursts in sweetest blossoms that will crumble hurt and wall
The joy cannot be stopped to brood nor twisted far aside
With only boundless full intent, no sloth will it abide
Like floods upon the levee that protect the land of dread
Once joy arrives upon the scene, the panic will be fled
Evacuation of the angst and shreds of deep despair
All that remains of fear is just an echo in midair
A toast is shared of winsomeness and breath of freshest air
Hat's off to rainbow's colours and the brightness it can bear
The colours are as lush as rainbow's colours at the dawn
The luster of the love and all delight so blithely drawn

"Nature's song"



It is that time of year, yet, once again
Of sudden song and blooms and pouring rain
It burst out in the voice of flying things
The beauty rivals flowers as it sings
The tempo, then, begins its subtle play
To celebrate the song in nature's way

"Revels of the heart"


Respond to antics reveling the heart
Reflect the passion and the endless spark
Who gains the challenge of a life to hold
Who performs the chance so brash and bold
The mystic glance, repose with altered state
The wizard makes a change to fascinate
The revels of the heart will now reveal
That, all along, it had intent to steal
The mundane and the boredom of a life
All surgically removed with revel's knife

"In silences"



In silences, the soul knows not its worth
In splendour of the life it knows rebirth
The thought that life is more than crumpled shoes
Is necessary to awake the muse
Embracing life and waking of the dream
Brings sentiment like unrestrained sunbeam
Upon the template and domain of thought
An etching of transcendency is wrought

"The fog upon the ground"

The mist is swirling just above the ground
All thought is lost along with loss of sound
The muffling of the distant roars a blessing
As surf and tread assail the sense, less pressing
The life that scurries there beneath the fog
Acts as surrogate for analogue
The swirling of the shading veil beguiles
As life goes on with many endless trials
