A dream slips free
in dim blue dawn
silence- -sleep’s
vaporous veil fades
on a slow motion current.
Lightly muffled breeze
whispers through
open windows
stirring- -elevating
my consciousness,
aware- -elation,
inspiration.
Bird’s first song burst
rises high above
sun’s streaming ribbons- -
floating clouds on fire.
Adrift- -my mind
careening, I soar
nestled in nature’s muse- -
amused by life
in its cycles.
Setting morning routines
in motion- -eyes forced
wide open- -I look for you
strolling up the path humming
Celtic bagpipe music.
Although
it’s been so long now- -

I’ll always look for you
in nature’s morning nuances,
never feeling alone,
or lonely.  Life
gave me you- -
I’m alive.

Continuous rain a blessing- -
no words from heaven
to moisten dry spaces
where my love and herbs
                                 wont grow.
A word barrel full of rain
never has much to say.

Bristlecone pine
atop granite spire- -
my perch
all thought
beyond this
a blur

I listen
to all things
natural
view things- -eyes closed
I feel them
filling me up
senses saturated
with tranquil light
smell, touch, sound- -wisdom
has no bounds
spoken in silences
deeper
louder
than any
cloud burst
can sing
I open wide
my being

English: Afternoon stroll

English: Afternoon stroll (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I need
to stroll through
the peaceful
mountain
valley
of you- -
gather up
a few smiles- -
flowers of thought- -
energy electric- -
I want to
linger
in your light- -
bright heart- -
dance
in the shower
of rushing
falling love
spilling
blue-gold droplets
of serenity
over me- -
I could sleep
there
in your magic.

Man,
you lure me
into
the mystery
of you.

Come- -
stroll with me- -
in all directions
love grows- -
without condition.

English: Summer Flowers.

white linens billow
against a green
backdrop
flowers bounce
swaying- -
their upturned faces
bright paint splotches
glowing in golden sun- -
children smile
in shades of melon
and sun fire red
glowing
through blue
water- -

Summer smiles
through the sorrow
in your eyes- -
searching for
your own piece
of peace within,
without speaking
your wishes or wants
coming in
and stepping out
of loss- -summer
isn’t really cold- -
hold on to that

I’ll give you
moonlight  blue butterflies
and okra blossom kisses- -
little summer blessing smiles- -
dawning a new fire
to sparkle your eyes- -
patchwork pieces
of peace for you
in the shifting
of long days
running
through summer
searching.

humid- -sleepless
giant moon
on cottonwood
leaves flicker- -
crickets chirrup

entwined
on mossy banks
we sip kisses
purple flowers nod- -
acquiescent

lazy river drifts
stars shift
chasing moon
time grows weary
reaching
for our hearts- -
                             too busy
                             spending time

Cocoa Beach Sunset

Cocoa Beach Sunset (Photo credit: JessicaGarbe)

Warm salty breeze,
heavy- -moist,
buffets my body- -
a divine sweet wine
I take in sipped breaths
and savor.
Silver moon sparks
across rolling waves- -
suddenly spent lovers
crashing- -lying down
in a rushing hush,
energy aglow.
Silence
broken only by
tidal love’s urgent surge
bursting my heart
giving and taking,
pushing- -pulling,
its steady breathing my
constant companion tonight.
                                                         Alone on a balcony
                                                         I take in Cocoa Beach,
                                                         make it a part of me- -
                                                         future trinket
                                                         for my memory box.
                                                         With gossamer wings
                                                         I would fly slowly
                                                         over the glittered
                                                         charcoal horizon- -
                                                         listening to wind
                                                         rushing in the night,
                                                         become bright moon
                                                         sparks bursting, or
                                                         swoop low
                                                         over cooling sand
                                                         strewn with glassy shells
                                                         seeking a 3:00 a.m
                                                         lonely hearted love.

                                                         Although,
                                                         I am content
                                                         absorbing solitude
                                                         simply to be- -
                                                                                  me.
