The sun hangs lowCasting a golden hue.Ripples escape the dash,Causing a wave of nostalgia.With the call of days past,And the nebulous future,Lays the content of the present.Relaxation held within,A stream of consciousness.Whispers and wisps,Of pleasurable times,Call and kiss the mind,With sounds and syllables.May the peace envelop you.
The demons of discontent,Swirl about my mind,Twisting it into knots,Keeping it from unwinding.They tease and taunt,Beckoning forth chaos,And uncomfortable conclusions.They take impish delight,In the swarms of conflicting thoughts. Thus a goal must be found,To brush away the infernal,When they come to distract.For when I have something to grasp,It becomes easier to ignore,The way they skitter … Continue reading Poem: The Demons of Discontent
Dreaming, preparing,For the whirlwind ahead.The sands of time begin to swirl,As your foot inches forth.Step into the breeze.Allow the winds of change,Brush across you. Do you hear the whispers,The portents of that which is to come?They sing and call,To those who will listen.The glistening sparks,Draw you to the knowledge they share.The scale changes tone,Heralding the … Continue reading Poem: Dreaming, Preparing
Lost and wading through the quicksand,Finding an oasis,A place of peace.Let a spirit guide you,Through troubles and strife,To a serene space.Wear a crown,As you stride amidst a battle.For your regal bearing,Carries you through,All that would press against you,With ferocity and anger.Step forth noble one,Towards your royal throne,And take your proper place,Amongst the golden realm.
To your failures and triumphs,To your pains and gains,May you celebrate all,That you have faced,This year and those past.For they spur you on,They grant you the strength,To stride to greater heights,Regardless of the gaps. Acknowledge the lessons,From the lack of success,For they bring you closer,To your ultimate goal,For you cannot fail,Without first trying,Thus victory requires … Continue reading Poem: To Your Pains and Gains
In chocolate rivers,In meadows of coffee,And in hills of tea,Dreams swirl around,Beckoning forth spirits,And whispers of worlds,That we yearn for yet cannot see. At holidays and high days,We connect to the realm,Of the ethereal and intangible,Of the past and that which is to come. With sunshine and candlelight,With the chime of bells,And the crackling of … Continue reading Poem: Sparks of Magic
Dreams are a little touch of fantasy,A portal through which we view,Another realm, another world,Of magic and growth. There are but a few times of the year,Where we can visit dreams while awake,With joy and hope,As if as a child. With the anticipation,We gain wonder and awe,While we count down the days,To the coming celebration. … Continue reading Poem: Dreams and Celebrations
Click, clack,Hear my shoes,Tap into the past.With a swish,I turn into another era.Through clothes and hair,I seemingly appear,To be an illusion of the past,A ghost, an apparition,Brought to life. I may visit ancestors,Through taste and smell,With spoon and bowl,Or deep pot and ladle,I conjure a portal to ages past.Through the passage,I pass along to others,The … Continue reading Poem: The Past in Senses
They ask you to step into certain shoes,While avoiding others themselves.What would it take to remember,Those that they scorn?To stop denying them a face,To be willing to hear their side?They call others selfish and thoughtless.Yet how mindlessly do they follow. I try to remember my own faults,And the areas that I forget,To pause in my … Continue reading Poem: Stepping into Certain Shoes
Have you touched the sunset,With its colorful rays?Have you let its energy,Wash over your face?With a guitar strumming,Let the rhythm of life,Guide your steps into a dance.Hear the whispers of timeless loves,Enchant you and your dreams.Step in and out of many realms,Ones of magic and freedom.Out of your core and basic floor,Comes the whirling of … Continue reading Poem: Have You Touched The Sunset?
