Poems

Something Beautiful

A shaft of light;

the flash

of belief..

 

forgiving insight;

a falling

leaf..

 

benevolent toil;

the butterfly’s

wing..

 

a merciful smile;

all fragile

things.

Solace

Light

fades;

hidden

from view..

 

this world’s

parade 

of pain

keeps passing

through..

 

can

we find

some lasting 

solace

here..

 

and start 

anew.

A Pebble

So here I am..

 

my ragged edges

made smooth; softened

by life’s jagged touch

 

like a pebble plunged

through the rocky flow..

 

knowing nothing

for sure

 

though the water

is pure.

 

Excerpt: Poems from the Universe:

Overflowing

Someday

soon

 

all

hearts

will beat

in time..

 

our energy 

combined

will overflow..

 

overthrow

 

all

that carves 

our human

sorrows..

 

reclaim

our children’s

lost tomorrows.
