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.

©️ Thom Amundsen 6/2021


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
