Blue Ghosts of Night

credit to unknown source

Haunted dark trails, candles of light
tiny blue ghosts, illuminate the night
wings of desire, hearts begin to spark
nestled together dreams take flight

Beyond the Landscape

Starry Night by Alex Ruiz

Under a starry sky he takes in the view
capturing moments indescribable night
palette of colors ready  in various hues
releasing tension, into  the dancing light

her sweet scent lingers in the meadow
a wildflower,  that sings her own song
painting her beauty, a soulful falsetto
together they create magic and belong

twinkling bright , distant  heaven above
diamond teardrops, falling from the sky
inspiring his muse,  soft  brushes of love
she is out there waiting,  his heart sighs

beyond the landscape,  sweet dreams
stroked on a canvas, words unspoken
here he creates art under moonbeams
may this magical spell never be broken

What Shall I Pack

Travel Light by Joel Robison

In my visions I see change
a new path in the journey
preparing I pack a suitcase
leaving heavy burdens behind
my only wish is to travel light

thinking what can I bring
that won't weigh me down
filling it with hopes & dreams
a bright  bouquet of wildflowers
wrapped in tissues of love

carrying summer sunlight
traveling to distant shores
who knows what is in store
on the path from here to there
whispering secrets into my soul

on the wings of a butterfly
fluttering  in a warm breeze
hidden sanctuary, new habitat
seeking sweet nectar in life
the journey leads me to you!

Behold Light

Joel Robison

pure love
 thinking of you
cupping petals of  light 
 tranquility in the forest 
 new life
 to  love 
 perfumed  white  rose
 language  from  a poet's  heart 
arising  from  darkness  true  light 
 just  breathe
 light  fills  and empty space 
 soft  white  rose,  center of my  heart
