In our Life – Poem

In our life

In our Life

In our life,

There are moments so profound

we mark them with mile stones,

So powerful

we can feel their force as they are happening.

 

Today the gravity of all my experiences settled in. Like a welcoming wind, a profound sense of peace eased its way into my soul.

I am no longer concerned with the trivial, the things I cannot control

the battles that are not my own.

 

I am a new man, an old man

the person I never thought I would be

the anger, the hate, the frustration, the pain, the fear

is all gone

 

I feel fantastic

I feel wonderful

I feel powerful

 

I love everyone

I am at peace with everyone

I am in harmony with everyone

Simply Gorgeous – Poem

It Slides – Poem

it slides

Its Slides

It slides and slips

moving swiftly between our finger tips

grains of sand,

like time, our lives spill through our hand

as our love slips away

 

it disappears before our eyes

falling to the floor

against the stone

bouncing away

hiding, leaving us forever

 

falling in love is a moment of beauty

a rush, a flash of light, fireworks and fun

 

When the love is done, its gone in a shadow

a heavy blanket

an emptiness inside…

 

…a sad farewell

Simply Gorgeous

Simply Gorgeous

Beautiful, simply gorgeous

an angel with such a heavenly glow,  white light trails in your wake.

So soft, so sensitive, so pure

Your essence is intoxicating, incredibly invigorating.

 

Walking beside you was like being wrapped in a veil of magical light

fairies fluttering with their butterfly wings

singing songs of love and life without any strife

 

immeasurable and incredible

pure candy for sight

a flavor of the gods, beyond any mortal delight

Magical Ways

Magical Ways

The world moves in magical ways

It has an ebb and flow

A feel of pure pleasure,

a sensation of cool liquidity

rhythmically rocking us, forward and back

 

Not all of our feels make sense

they don’t have to

Feelings are creatures without a master

they are untamed

unmarred

liberated and Free

 

Acceptance, like the world, has an ebb and flow

It moves forward and back

side to side

it glides and slides, but never abides.

Eh – Poem

 

Eh

Eh – Poem

Eh

Eh

Eh…

I want to say “Not a peep, not a noise, not a word.”

I want to say “Are you serious?”

“After all this time?”

“After this and that, here and there?”

 

I want to say “ok.”

I want to say “I get it.”

“I should have seen it.”

“That this was going to happen.”

“It was destined to be.”

“that’s how it works”

“Its fine.”

 

What can I say?

those feelings

those moments

 

It doesn’t take them away

The way the road moves

how it travels

or where it goes

 

The steps we took have already been taken

They can’t be undone

They will always be there

 

Perhaps…

Maybe I’m fine with it

Ready to lift my soul

let my heart go

rise and fly

watch what was…

…die.

All Sorts

All Sorts – Poem

All Sorts

All Sorts

Hurt and pain and all sorts of shame

We live in a world where things don’t go our way

Life is not solely about the good times

or the bad.

 

It is about the memories we cherish, love and like.

the lessons we have learned

and the things we have earned

 

Sadness is a time stamp of the things we have accepted

the moments that have passed

the ones that are to come

that will be all sorts of fun

 

It is an opportunity to look forward

to walk toward the sun

and dance in the night

 

to look ahead without any fright

live and love

and wear life like a glove
