Seeing Beyond the Ordinary

Discover the Beauty in Each Day

Dreamland

Walking into

the land of make believe…

I’ve created

with my thoughts,

the world I wish to see.

Rainbows and sunrises

of every hue,

birds twittering

lend me cues,

to dreams awakening

in my mind,

displaying endless possibilities.

Silence deafens…

as I hear the leaves,

steadily dropping

with the evening breeze.

Eventide is boundless

then…

comes the beauty

of painted zen,

upon the sky

as sunset wends

its light …

across the sky,

the magic bends,

bidding good night

as the bright stars quell.

 

 

 

 

Love Remembers

Sunlight filters,

shining on the

pictures of…

people I’ve loved

and people I’ve lost,

from this realm

I see their spirit,

in many ways,

I feel as nearest.

Seeing life

in each moment,

shiny waves …

of molecules present,

feeling those closest…

and also dearest.

Take the time,

look at the memories,

reminiscing with grace,

At how far you’ve come,

And continue onward,

with their love.

Carrying them within

your heart,

Knowing they are at peace,

a treasure trove,

together even though…

we are …physically apart.

Reckoning

Standing silent,

staring across

the frozen moor,

I hear the clang

of closing doors.

Striking out,

fearing no more,

the endless bloodshed…

settling the score.

Seeking the vast

unbroken shore,

to lose myself

forgetting all.

Crunching snow steps

one by one,

toward a warmer, rising sun.

Leaving heartache,

seeing all as one,

forgiveness propels me,

until this day is done.

Fairie Woods

A barking dog

the hidden feast

wandering as a

lonely beast…

seeking, hungry,

until he sees,

a lively fairie

floating on the breeze.

Tell me

wee one

where shall I find,

a place to rest,

for such a time,

dry and safe

from the dark night?

The fairie twittered

back and forth,

humming sprightly

catching its breath,

shimmering slightly,

the fairie said…

just here in the woods,

Ill lead you to a

spot so fair,

by the stream,

its safest there.

The big oak stands

dry and warm within…

So the dog did find a

hollowed tree…

Ahhh he sighed,

settling in -sleepily.

Still hungry, he sought

the hidden feast,

his tummy rumbled…

for a bite.

But now, amidst

the darkest night,

in fairie woods

he saw a sprite.

Hello there, dog

called the bright light,

whirring and clicking,

flying near…

the light bobbed and

disappeared.

Feeling sad and hungrier still,

the dog lay his head

down, ready for sleep.

All at once,

he heard a peep,

hmmm now, well what is

this?

He asked…

muffled and hidden

he heard, then,

a slight shuffling sound.

I wonder– can I eat this?

In the dark…

he licked his chops

at the thought,

of a meal…

But he sat very still,

until the sound became real.

At last it was clear,

the steps sounded near.

Here were fairies

carrying food,

berries and nuts

and pretty flowers, too!

They placed it before him,

saying softly…

here oh dog,

is a simple repast,

we thought you’d be

hungry,

as night shadows

are cast.

Feel safe now,

and rest your head,

for all is not lost.

When Sun shines

the morrow,

we’ll guide you home,

for now please eat

and bed in our tree,

all is well,

and we shall help thee.

As promised by the

tiny people,

the morning Sun was

a welcome sight,

they came and guided

him through

the woods…

by the stream,

to the road

from whence he came.

 

Daily Inspiration

Death of Old

And when at last

we step upon

the other shore,

knowing of our death,

falls like a stone.

The sands of time,

have brought us here,

to live our lives…

to tell the tale.

For if not that…

as survival shone,

like a bright star…

to follow the path.

leading us home.

Now, here we stand

as rising tide

it does reveal

the time to ride.

We go in Peace

We go in Love

We feel the pull …

the dove appears …

to show the way,

Onward now, tis a new day.
