Carpe Diem Special #196 Hamish Gunn’s 2nd “on the street corner”

solitude

unwelcome advance ironic

still alone

~

a child sings

notes of melancholy

will the door open

~

I watched life

acting out, shedding values

damn it was fun

~

too late frantic

realizations of passion

kids will still cry

~

lamppost chatter

a warm summer evening

cold hearts

~

I wish to breathe

if might love be found

I wish to breathe

~

Favor Today – Carpe Diem #910 Bitterness/Sour

favor love today

spiritual reckoning

soft heart Grace seek

~

we are a prison

locked inside our fantasy

bitter reminder

~

like a winter peace

we do when love does cry

know no sour taste

~

examine labors

delicious wise fruition

express love alive

Sweet Remedy -Carpe Diem #909 Sweetness

fond in memory

she wore her fragrance of love

her sweets spoke real

~

would I when alone

imagine, taste, delicious, her

eyes would speak surreal

~

a smile, a glance, peace

when longing is a world dream

solace, sweet, serene

~

I am standing near

a universal speak sincere

sweet remedy is near

~

Settle Sound – Carpe Diem #907 meditation

comforting news

a peace in a visual

mental escape

~

we study our lives

we mix time we need desire

passion suggests love

~

while wander the mind

seek solace surround sound

sunlight somber

~

quiet peace reflect

earth tones sweep animate

dreams breath visual

~

in nature beauty

inhale happiness

exhale in love

~

Papa’s Plum Tree – Carpe Diem #906 Ume-no-hana (ume flower)

We spoke near this place

where papa’s memory did store

signs of winter’s last trace

~

in papa’s name cherish

beauty in the form of white blossoms

the ice floes do perish

~

while a sunlit peace

suggests our open arms will guide

our lives toward a release

~

summertime and leisure

quiet memory of a fonder time

underneath our plum tree near

~

Carpe Diem #903 hot springs

life breathe free

I stand inside a melody

sweet steamy me

~

where is energy

from the ground in symphony

water bathes harmony

~

she said hold rocks

feel nature is an energy

will hold peace

~

inside our Earth

we recognize a new delight

bathe alone in fog

~

a human being

a gift of the land I may feel

delight in hot waters

~

Slight Night – Carpe Diem #190 – Special

Carpe Diem Special #190

~

I could if right

eyes glance inside sky

long winding night

~

that hurt we know

while evening stars shine

fallen away glow

~

we could do this

always together alone

secure stars soul

~

still a waking hour

waits to suggest a circle

again seeks night sky
