moment

Paul-Klee-Houses-near-the-Gravel-Pit

Each day
giving thanks
knowing moments
over hours
liberating dove
alighting upon me
seeing peace
and living it
crying for love
then giving it
believing in goodness
and returning it
seeing the face of God
and praising Him.

love

at peace
in comfort
resting with
the still of
early morning
in the absence
of any light
like a stream
flowing darkly
in the night
without effort
engrossed in
melodic bliss
pleasing resonance
smiling at
thoughts of
lovely people
new and old
and thankful for all
blessings bestowed
upon this life
now i remember
the warmth of
your smile and
the gentleness
of your touch
to an asking heart
receiving and accepting
your love.

autumn breeze

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh

charcoal sky and misty morn
peaceful awakening life reborn
first thought makes me smile
as you are there, abideth awhile

into your soul I try and peer
through loving eyes drawing near
warming heart i hold so close
blushing cheeks of fragrant rose.

gentle wisps of autumn breeze
cause a whisper among the trees
as hope shall linger through this day
the breeze shall lift my soul away

unforgettable blue

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh

I am sad to see birds fly south
and trees blushing at night’s cool kiss.
Even the sun seems to shy away
sinking ever further to
other places.

Resting now in reflection,
I remember our first glance –
our eyes meeting for a moment
as perpetual motion ceased
and inquisitive stillness held sway.

Why does melancholy absorb
days and minutes?
Why do I concede when
I know what thread attaches
my heart to eternity?

Once the devil’s touch
tried in vain to veil my hope,
but a fortified optimism prevailed.
Eternal hope upon an unforgettable blue sky.

i must commune with this new season
and find the beauty in winter’s eyes
as in her sadness offers her arms
in a gesture of love and peace
knowing seasons too sadly pass.
