The Fence of Discontent

The Sunday Muse

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


How long will we perch on this fence
living in a world filled with discontent

to understand raven's hidden darkness
unravel the madness of consciousness

to understand deep wisdom of the owl
into the night you might have to prowl

even the dark skies, have stars to delight
leading us towards the morning sunlight

even the light, has moments of unease
grey clouds linger, shapes & forms tease

tethered, our souls long to be set free
from this vantage point it is hard to see

traveling between the light and dark
daring to dream, to the song of the lark

how long will we perch on this fence
living in a world filled with discontent

Connections

Lake, Frozen, Ice, Water, Winter, Frost

Today - I took  a walk
connecting with nature
winter-air, cold and crisp
tracking my steps up and down
gentle sloping hills

Today - I wondered where
the geese have gone
yesterday, they flew in
V-formation seeking
a place to land, frozen
waters, a change of plans

Today  - I watched a flying man
on razor sharp blades, grinding
ice with each hissing bite
waiting for the stick and puck
to meet, Tap, tap, tap

CRAACK, SWOOSH

there's a connection
that echoes out into the universe

Today -  A cooper's hawk flew
overhead
there's synchronicity in nature
connect, focus, visualize
obtain your goal, fly with the wind

CRAACK, SWOOSH

Author's note:  Today, I went for a
walk trying to connect with nature.
There was a man playing hockey
and I thought how free he looked
flying across the ice with ease.

Be A Star

 

Once the queen of the silver screen

she could make you laugh or scream

her  characters written by another

embracing in the arms of a  lover

 

her  expressions could tell a story

life has moments of pain and glory

an  actress,  the theater her life

finding her place under the lights

 

"All the world's a stage"

and all men and women merely players

 

scripting the journey page by page

hoping to  survive a modern age

masks; different in shapes and forms

helping us weather unknown storms

 

each day a new opportunity to live

a time to give and maybe, forgive

hang on  to your dreams in the night

hoping, someday they will take flight

 

"they have their exists

and their entrances"

 

you  are the author of a best- seller

composing adventures, the story teller

it's your life on a stage of opportunities

fill it with extra-ordinary possibilities

 

explore nature and its calming scenes

laugh and dance change your routine

step out of time, to your own beat

walk in fields of honey colored wheat

 

"We know what we are, but know not

what we may be"

Be the star of your life!

Dabbling in a Dream

sitting on a mossy riverbank
dabbling her feet in the
inviting water

her mind drifting with
the clouds, indulging
in a daydream

paddling a canoe
through the ripples of time
perhaps, meeting a lover

sunlight dappling through
the pines, warming her heart
she smiles

The Apple of My Eye

The Sunday Muse  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

what do you see, when you look at me

do you see more than a reflection

do you see the  fine lines of time

do you see the depth of my soul

do you see my unfulfilled dreams

do you see me more than skin

do you see, my imperfections

do you see the hidden scars

do you see an expanding heart

do you see me for who I am

an apple half eaten, the fruit

of the spirit in need of healing

from the bruises of life....
