Kindred Spirit

With me everyday and night,
feel your essence, always bright.
Chase off darkness with pure light,
change mistakes from wrong to right.

Silhouette, carries great ease.
Silhouette, worries decrease.
Silhouette, flows with the breeze.
Silhouette, bringer of peace.

Whisper thoughts so I create,
in my mind your voice narrates.
Teach me all your wisest traits,
help me turn good into great.

Outline of clear purity.
Outline holds security.
Outline provides clarity.
Outline gives prosperity.

Close my eyes, know you are there,
heartbeats show how much you care.
Divine love, treasure so rare,
connection beyond compare.

Shadow lets my heart fly free.
Shadow traces what I see.
Shadow foresees what will be.
Shadow lives deep within me.

Second Scene

Chaos hugs turmoil, now bound,
misery is swiftly drowned.
Endless circle, tranquil grounds,
where serenity is found.
Peaceful wisdom, soon surrounds,
powerful thoughts swirl around.
Hear wise words the winds compound,
penetrate deep and profound.

Green path opens to cease spin,
so new chapters could begin.
As warm Sun rays kiss dull skin,
allow pure light to seep in.
Blissful tears freed from within,
assured hopes could see a win.
Each step carries a slight spring,
tastes of what tomorrow brings.

Golden copper colored skies,
euphoric dreams seem to fly.
Endless love held in all eyes,
delighted to fling cheer high.
Pure faith urges hearts to try,
wishes made, often comply.
Good intentions do not dry,
everlasting joy supply.

Camaraderie

Sun shine on the meadow,
grass from green to yellow,
warm breeze that feels mellow,
serenity echoes.

Three ponies roaming free,
fill my day with pure glee.
Lessons from what I see,
set my perceptions free.

They all feed off the land,
and somehow understand,
that right from where they stand,
nature offers her hand.

Beautiful and serene,
inhale this gorgeous scene,
of a precise routine,
a fellowship so sheen.

Within this large clear space,
choosing to interlace,
they each find their own place,
invisible embrace.

Hello Again

My yard offers a comfort zone,
a serene place to call your own.
The endless journey you have flown,
brings you right back, but not alone.

I wake up to your egg filled nest,
feel a great joy deep in my chest.
Happy to see my cherished guest,
choose my home for safety and rest.

Leave for a feed though not for long,
hesitant but you must stay strong.
Your partner sits where you belong,
hear your return through whistled songs.

Two weeks swiftly pass by so fast,
your hatchlings form a multicast,
their distinct chirps make echoes last,
listening to them is a blast.

I see you teach fledglings to try,
you push them till they learn to fly.
Feel prideful tears reach both my eyes,
knowing it’s time to say good bye.

Look forward to this time next year,
your visits bring me so much cheer.
I will make sure your space is cleared,
perfectly set when you appear.

Catalina

Too strong to ask for help,
while knowing you are weak.
Too right to see the wrongs,
in all the lies you speak
.

Trendsetter paving paths,
expect for sheep to follow.
A solid stone-filled heart,
can only teach great sorrow
.

Proof in your hazel eyes,
filled up with fallen dreams.
Imprisoned hidden smiles,
muffle loud inner screams
.

It did not go your way,
manipulate the truth.
Point out imagined flaws,
hope no one mentions you
.

You can not show pure love,
that you have never known.
Can not emit warm light,
if cold is all you own
.

Pity towards your fine clan,
is what I feel inside.
They can not see your games,
or how you play their mind
.

Feel sorry for you too,
unspoken hurts cause pain.
Hope you can heal within,
attract much needed gain
.

One day our worlds may crash,
at intersecting roads.
Our lives perhaps aligned,
with no lingering holds.

Ride

Cycle on this busy day,
so much work, no time for play.
A quick stop without delay,
run errands while on my way.

Park the bike, notice display,
silently stare and survey,
swallow details in dismay,
absorb joyful times today.

Know that all will be okay,
hope this feeling always stays.
Solid bonds will never sway,
signs appear where pure hearts lay.

Close both eyes, enjoy sun rays,
let bright thoughts chase off the grays.
Tinted laughs never decay,
memories of yesterday.

Love Bells

He fit nowhere,
filled with despair,
alone and bare,
he placed a dare.
Arms in the air
yearning to care,
hoped life was fair
and love climbed stairs.

Past bonds all failed,
knew faith tips scales,
ambitions sailed,
noticed details.
Essence of hail,
but felt so frail,
created tales,
he hoped prevailed.

Right then and there,
painted a layer,
a silent prayer,
made him aware.
True joy so rare,
beyond compare,
his perfect pair,
matched his shocked stare

Wishes he mailed,
landed and nailed,
jumped off the rails,
uncovered veils.
Love was exhaled,
huge as a whale,
pure joy inhaled,
forming light trails.

In a joint square,
their life was shared,
endless affair,
true love was theirs.
Bliss filled the air,
bright yellow flare,
found they were heirs,
to hearts that care.

Illuminate

Blind my eyes,
then warm me up.
Let your shine,
beam like the sun.

Clear my heart,
release my fears.
Brighten starts,
absorb old tears.

Awesome glow,
lights up my path.
Bask and soak,
in gleaming bath.

Kiss my head,
with glittered dust.
Radiant hues,
made of pure trust.

Inside out,
or upside down,
heal throughout,
then all around.

Far beyond,
reflections shown.
Endless bonds,
guide through unknowns.

Today’s Song

Nature’s sounds crash my brain,
writing songs as it rains,
scratch off notes, rearrange,
distinct tones interchange.

Pretty melodies help,
ease my heart’s pounding yells.
Watch the dancing wind chimes,
flow through blank hollow times.

Memories quickly tap,
as thoughts fall on my lap.
Inhale natural tunes,
that smell like old perfume.

Loud uneven thunder,
showcases bright wonders.
Lightning crashes my head,
stagnant tears quickly spread.

Watch the storm stop and freeze,
as I sway with the breeze.
See a rainbow arise,
set the stage for sunshine.

Golden ray melodies,
serve a strong remedy,
for what may lay ahead,
play music my mind read.

BFF

If I could fall into a dream,
I would make sure you are with me.
Faithful companion and best friend,
infinite bond could never end.

A journey past great waterfalls,
explore wherever nature calls,
together through both thin and thick,
find joy in watching you fetch sticks.

Some pets can give what humans lack,
a sense that they will have your back.
Clear anxious fears help stress relax,
protect from every last attack.

Enjoy each moment we can play,
no better way to spend a day.
Feel all the love your spirit brings,
fills me with joy makes my soul sing.
