Who Can?


free images - original artist unknown












Moon rising near the Joshua tree
gateway appears, quarter past three
I walk alone on a  desert road
trying to decipher mystical codes

who can; silence a thousand drums
apparitions speak in ancient tongue
tall cactus guard the canyon walls
darkness dwells, mourning falls

stumbling upon an angel of poems

welcome to the door of perception
the journey is not; about perfection
open your mind, to a poetic world
cosmic dust, the universe unfurls

who can; silence a thousand voices
chanting mantras; spiritual choices
glimpsing a vision of future days
when will this dust storm go away

stumbling upon an angel of song

walking through a portal of time
synchronicity, rhythm and rhyme
awakening my eyes filled with tears
can harmony exist in coming years

who can; silence the phoenix's cries
with a single flap, lighting the sky
rising from ashes, a warrior reborn
giving life to spirits tired and worn

stumbling upon an angel of dream

author's note: sharing tidbits
of a dream-walk.

Harboring Dreams

I sail my ship of dreams
through dark stormy waters
carrying precious cargo
lyrical songs and poems
from my heart...

seeking a safe harbor
misty eyed, burying my
treasures hoping someday
you will navigate the stars
finding the path that
leads you to me

Sit With Me A While


I met a wanderer in a dream
he said "sister sit with me a while"
you know, jealously has a nasty gleam

world is spin'in, a bad case of vertigo
affecting everyone's equilibrium
what I've seen you don't wanna know

and then the rain and wind came
hundreds cried their world lost
in the distance a flickering flame

I met a wanderer  in a dream
he said "sister sit with me a while"
you know, greed has a nasty gleam

everyone wanting that piece of gold
what's the price for fortune & fame
in ancient temples, trouble unfolds

world is spin'in out of control
heaven holds sun & moon light
my eyes strain, seeking lost souls

I met a wanderer in a dream
he said "sister sit with me a while"
you know, love has a wondrous gleam

and then the golden dragon came
drying blinding tears that were shed
twas,  love he thought to claim

world is spin'in out of control
or is it just our own perspective
connecting rhymes, feeling whole

I met a wanderer in a dream
he said "sister sit with me a while"
you know, hope has a redeeming gleam

and then the morning came.....

Thank you for your visit

Author's note:  This poem is
based on a dream I had a week
or so ago.

Wishing my southern friends
peace and safety in the wake
of the storm.

And the Rain Came Singing a Refrain



Quickly opening my sky blue umbrella
hopscotching through newly formed
puddles...

dashing for the car my heart quickens
raindrops blur my vision...

still I wonder who'll stop the rain
as the radio softly plays the repeating refrain

sometimes heaven cries and so do I
