Waking to Love

Sweet remedy

a kindness draws eyes

a wander

inside foggy interior.

~

While each passing hour

holds promise

asks empathy

an immediate proposal

may suggest in heart

sweet peace of mind.

~

Morning sunlight

will create shadow

that will ask a conscious

need to step in

guide a soul lost inside

a societal nightmare.

~

A pleasure would be a breeze

let fortune in life to breathe.

Relief

A technique in artistry

Raised impression

~

Brings a moment to life

We see the beauty

~

In a master’s hands

Elegant lines

~

Always a story

Being told

~

In Webster’s words

Or Collier

~

A comic moment

Is designed

~

To break the tension

Ease the mind

~

And today I glance freely

The western sky

~

And recognize the beauty

Of a common sunset

~

The relief of another day

Provides a setting

~

Tonight I appreciate beauty

In human kindness
