Realize Our Waves

waves

Calm soul travel light speed beyond our norm

Realize how too late vast impression

Upon our eyes lasts, worth one clear moment.

Is this truth our lives in time might conform?

Journey a passing fancy in motion

Speak fear, the impurity we lament.

Glance upon walls to visualize stars

Whose dance soft will the wave of mellow sound,

Passionate worlds that live outside ourselves.

Hot energy screams pedestaled altars

Where wanton desires simply hang around

Scrutinized in shadows while evil delves.

Seek abundant notion to help provide

Quiet paths of love our Spiritual guide

Wander While Waiting

Mark upon a day when you looked beyond the cliff,

a clear drawn out valley delightful in color caress a sad river

traveling in the distance, with so much forest,

lush green and wild abandon just beyond our reach.

Yet, on the crest your feet remain planted unable to imagine

a world beyond your own that plays in your mind.

~

How do we begin to understand the Nature around us

when we cannot conceive the world we have created alone,

worried about a disease that hasn’t even reached our veins,

while others kill us on a regular basis, in gradual numbers

we all seem to receive some natural plan, an action

that once it is set in motion ranges like a river carving through the land.

~

I remember picking up single rocks alone,

and tossing them over that edge, imagining me

instead, falling, and drifting through time,

away from my mind, that keeps me stuck

on the crest of the hill looking upon recent valleys,

those that remind me where I’ve been, where I may go.

~

When I sit in quiet solitude and imagine the life I lead

I do wonder whether it might be right, or is it fate

to believe that somewhere in the scene scape exists a time

we no longer may touch, yet still evolves with the fortune

of eyes, a quiet interlude of life driven values. I may

walk across my threshold to yield my life forever.

~

Today I will wander without lifting my feet, yet my eyes

look out upon a horizon of love and reality, just waiting.
