What is Love?   Leave a comment

What is love

but a patter of the heart

a place where butterfly’s soar.

 

What is love

but a soft gentle breeze

that rustles the top’s of the plants.

 

What is love

but a quiet strength within,

that gives potency to the soul.

 

What is love

but a magnificent thing,

you have and cannot ignore.

 

What is love

but the conqueror of burdens,

gentle waves upon the coast.

 

What is love

but something you give, and receive,

from and to whomever you choose.

 

What is love

but a gift

to precious for anyone to miss.

It’s a Hard Life   Leave a comment

Twas a faraway land,

from whence I once came,

travelling hills and valleys,

bruised and beaten, tattered and torn,

I gathered my broken parts,

and sought to be re-born

I carried myself forward,

my pieces in hand,

to put me back together,

till strong I could stand.

 

It didn’t come easy

some parts didn’t fit,

so I made some innovative ones,

and pieced me back together,

…bit by bit.

Today I met the mountain,

I am finally whole,

boots on my feet,

equipment in hand,

I’m ready to climb,

face life’s greatest demand.

 

And when I make it to the top,

I’ll be sure to throw a rope,

and help someone else,

cause I know the climb is tough,

life can be jagged,

it’ll rip you apart,

it’ll leave you ragged,

only for a time,

then you’ll pull yourself together,

as I did in mine,

and climb your own mountain,

maybe two steps at a time.

I reach down into the depths of my soul,

where all is dark and silent,

not a ripple, nor voice,

not a care, nor choice…

just serenity and peace,

my mind is still

and for a brief moment

the world around me vanishes

into an abyss of nothingness

a sweet place of sensibility

A deep breath, my heart beats steadily

Ocean waves permeate the shore,

my body sinks bottomless

into soft white sand

breathing deeper

deeper…

falling into empty space,

and I sleep.
