"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

"In every way"

How to explain
The Jewels
The thoughts unchain
the tools
In every way
The spark
So, to allay
Embark
At journey's end
To see
At heart's amend
Agree

A list would be unwelcome and still leave undefined
The etching from your brushstrokes in a sculpture so refined
A color added to the spectrum of your heart and mine
A prism sparkling in the dark from rays that now outshine
In essence 'tis like fragrance for each sense
A mountain that is now just so immense
'Tis a feeling that did flash upon first sight
Growing all the time with gentle might
No note is missed, no song unsung, in every way complete
A thrill is known across the spine, no other knows such treat

"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
