week 510 ~ a loon takes off flies across the river

with 2 comments

a loon takes off flies across the river
softly behind me I hear your guitar
this feeling of peace won’t last forever
nor can it be moved from where we now are
waves lapping the shore birds calling their mate
I’m cut off from the internet the world
set free from the emotions sorrow hate
envy anger at what the fates have hurled
my way here time stretches out seems to flow
ahead as one unbroken melody
with no place in particular to go
here sitting in the sun serenity
has become an easier place to find
as island breezes soothe my troubled mind

week 411 ~ slowly the sky fills with pink blue

with 2 comments

me.411slowly the sky fills with pink blue
melts to grey day is nearly done
I watch an audience of one
here on the island not quite true
for sitting close beside me you
process the transition your way
quiet reigns what is there to say
waves lap shore fades wind blows the damn
rooster crows dark grows and I am
at peace troubles swept clean away

week 301 ~ sunlight dapples waves lap the shore

with 2 comments

me.301sunlight dapples waves lap the shore
we lie here dreaming of nothing
at all for we hold everything
in this moment not needing more
here there’s no after no before
only the wind through the aspen
not wondering what will happen
just memorizing how this feels
forestalling time until its wheels
run past us and this turns to then

week 249 ~ the rustle of aspen leaves

with 18 comments

me.249the rustle of aspen leaves
a sanctuary of peace
unravel old time’s rent sleeve
and savor the sweet release

a sanctuary of peace
so laugh throw away the key
and savor the sweet release
when there’s nothing left to be

so laugh throw away the key
there’s no need to lock the door
when there’s nothing left to be
you require nothing more

there’s no need to lock the door
as your demons disappear
you require nothing more
what you’re searching for is here

as your demons disappear
unravel old time’s rent sleeve
what you’re searching for is here
the rustle of aspen leaves

week 90 ~ the wind rustles through the aspen

with 12 comments

the wind rustles through the aspen
as waves softly lap at the shore
and right now there is nothing more
than this I would wish to happen
my circumstances don’t often
allow me time to pause with grace
while clocks run down and others race
to keep up to the flow of time
and so I linger in sublime
wonder to be here in this place
