Dashboard Messiah

The job cut him loose
no more work they said
shattering his dreams
into tiny pieces of glass
praying  lost in his car
to a dashboard messiah
his image tarnished
searching for a new persona
under a luminous moon
casting dark shadows
quick as lightning
     up speed
          driving  down I95 South
with the wind & a prayer
radio blasting , drowning
his thoughts..need to escape
opening a door new place
warmth...pass the collection
he is free...

A Tear Was Wept

A tear was wept purity  since  the  start 
gentle  white   bell   shape  delicate  design 
spring  brings  restoration   to  anxious hearts
perpetual  light  your  spirit  does shine

in the shadow of the  earthly  valley
musical  notes   soar  ,  chimes  of the divine
singing  carefree  spirits  yearn   to   dally 
caught  momentarily ,  searching   for   signs 

guiding  new  pathways  sweet   heavenly   scent 
radiating   assurance  , blooms of  hope 
seeking  renewed  peace   and   feeling   content 
life  an  ever   changing  kaleidoscope

remembering   great   dream   grow   from   small  seeds
nurturing   love  , fulfilling  human   needs

Breathing Fresh Air..

Edward Hopper, 1922 

We meet in the city for lunch
celebrating another book deal
I look into your soulful  eyes
I need to see you..

Your eyes sparkle with delight
piano man playing soft music
I listen attentively to your words
I need to hear you..

Whispering , I've missed you
big  city has lost its glimmer
I inhale your woodsy aroma
I need to smell you..

Let us escape these city walls
drive into green countryside
I long to kiss your soft lips
I need to taste you...

Under a willow tree we meet
relinquishing all restraints
we reach for each other
we need to touch..
sensing love..

Lose the Umbrella Feel the Rain

Wikimedia After-the-Rains Florence Peel

 rain  quenches thirstiness
 fill  thy  cup 

 weeping  willow  moist  tears
 cry   no   more 

 beyond  the  waterfall 
dreams  take   root 

around  the  river  bend
 current   swift 

dancing  free  in the  rain 
spirits  soar
