Existence

As the world spins
does it shed sins?
Making wrongs right
all day and night?
Are problems solved
quickly absolved?
Do winds bring hope?
enough to cope?

Do all our fears,
and guilty tears,
grab hold and steer,
as gloom appears?
Do we throw hooks,
behave like rooks,
in little nooks,
exchanging looks?

Did we invent
outer intent?
A force to blame
for inner shame?
If we decide
to look inside,
what will we find
along with pride?

A tiny light,
twinkles at sight,
a brilliant force,
connecting source.
A silent bell
we know too well,
guides and compels,
within our cells.

Empath

A wise empath I know,
carries distinctive eyes.
Her reflective mirrors,
expose secrets that hide.

Feeling every sorrow,
she lessens aches and pains.
Shares tears others swallow,
connecting to their chains.

Lets lies slide unnoticed,
so no one feels ashamed.
Unwanted emotions,
penetrate just the same.

Offers an open hand
at the risk of her fall.
Absorbing great sadness,
then dissolving them all.

Walking angel on earth,
still, will not spare her wrath.
Stands perfectly balanced,
while creating fair paths.

A mystical presence,
aura fills up the air.
Pure lit divine essence,
always driven to care.

Fated Sail

I crank the anchor,
watch as it lifts.
I sail my boat
then let it drift.
I push my view
making them shift.
I work quite hard
to make life swift.

Winds rock my boat
from here to there.
I’m lost at sea
but do not care.
Life shakes me up
and feels unfair.
Absent from life
yet still aware.

I grab the steer,
balanced at once.
I trim the sail,
tying the knots.
I harmonize
my offbeat heart.
I convince fate
to change the plot.

Waves carry us
to where we land.
Our keel and feet
enjoy the sand.
Our life is sweet
from where we stand.
Infinity
at destiny’s hand.

Absorbed

Blind my eyes with your delight,
make me warm,
fill me with light.

Bright essence shine around me,
hug me tight,
guide me to see.

Add your spirit to my soul,
steer the wheel,
take full control.

Illuminate every path,
leave all dark,
far in the past.

Wipe the tears that swiftly flow,
hold my hand
and help me grow.

Kiss me softly on my head,
expand love,
so it can spread.

Carry hopes up to the sky
mend my wings
teach me to fly

Sprinkle peace from up above
bless this world
with divine love

Contribute

Shield my eyes,
mute my voice,
walk through life
with no choice.
Missing home
though still there,
this new world
seems unfair.

People seem
extra cold,
many try
to fit molds.
Inventing
quiet rules,
silent thoughts
can feel cruel.

Draw my light
from inside,
spread kindness
out world wide.
Wear a smile
on my face,
replicates,
fills with grace.

Look around,
sing and walk,
positive
when I talk.
Inner love
soon reflects,
all the joy
I project.

Clears

What goes up
must come down,
even clowns
can own frowns,
even snakes
shed their skin,
letting go
all old sins.

Black and white
can shade grays,
opposites
fun at play,
skip around
sun and rain,
adding ease
to all pain.

Find True Self
in your eyes,
releasing
your disguise,
look beyond
what is shown,
opaque paths
start to glow.

Mope or fly,
laugh and cry.
This whole world
is your ride.
Feed the good
just decide,
to hold light
by your side.

Suddenly

Without a clue
out of the blue,
the old me died
reborn all new.
All past mistakes
proved to be true,
knowledge was earned
from what I knew.

Out of the blue
everything changed
the life I lived
was rearranged.
All thoughts I had
were interchanged,
my preferences
were seen as strange.

Without a clue
to what comes next,
training my heart
not to expect.
Coaching my eyes
to not project,
letting my soul
shine and reflect.

Without a clue
out of the blue,
every old sight
formed unique views.
Every past fail
carries bright hues,
lessons were learned
from which I grew.

Skin deep

Fairyland, made up of lights,
dims the brightness low at night,
sparkly dust, enhanced insight,
smiles as she glides to full flight
.

Dragon stomps into the room,
presence enters with a boom,
flowers all pause in mid-bloom,
feelings of instant dark gloom
.

Scared to meet, what goes unknown,
frightened by the abrupt tones,
convinced he was made of stone,
all just ran, he stood alone.

Fairy extends an invite,
behaving fine and polite,
standing for what she feels right,
exposing her inner might
.

Dragon responds with a zoom,
peeling off frightful costume,
fairy prince comes to full view,
fairyland quickly resumes
.

“Thanks for the compassion shown,
bad behaviors you condoned,
all my actions I will own,
your kindness helped my heart grow.”

“Fairies do not judge with sight,
instead offer pure delight,
making every dim turn bright,
accepting all forms despite.”

Earth Angel

An angel mowed
my lawn today,
wings did not show,
harps did not play.

Another one
peddled downtown.
No royal son,
no halo crown.

An angel sang
outside for tips,
all hearts felt pangs
yet money skipped.

Another one
was all alone,
helped everyone
but still unknown.

An angel clutched
my soul today,
my life was touched
in every way.

They walk with us
not standing out,
without a fuss,
without a shout.
