CHASING THE HORIZON.. a poem

“I am not now, nor shall I ever be,

Sated with this life of philosophy!”

Those were the last words I thought I would hear

Whispered from the lips of the one I held dear.

Then a palpable change settled in the room,

And I wondered aloud, “Could this be our doom?”

And a miracle happened, there before my eyes,

As the body before me started to rise.

Not from some ill-fated ghostly-formed force

No, this was the willingness of quite another source.

Stunned, though I be, as I stood there in wonder,

I couldn’t help but smile at the small clap of thunder.

You see, a storm had been raging outside,

As if in this room, where I gazed full of pride.

She then lay back down, content and enlightened.

With her last words she smiled – “I’ll be chasing the horizon!”

ASHES… a poem

The ashes are all that’s left

Of the woman I loved so dear.

These callused hands once held her close

While these lips whispered in her ear.

Now, I say, I love you.

I will repeat those words every day.

And in my mind, I still hear your reply

Because, it was always that way.

NATURE’S EYE

Throw light into the shadows

Cast your visage to the wind

The long, long night has ended

As the sun does shine again

The waters reflect the beauty

From the peaks of mountains high

The breeze is hush upon the glade

A mirror in Nature’s eye

Evening, Reflection, Sunset, Sky, Sea

Snowcaps in the distance

With nimbus clouds above

Surely nothing can compare

A picturesque parade of love

DARK… a poem

The dark crept in and I didn’t even notice,

Until I was stumbling around,

Wondering how I lost my way.

Isn’t that how it always happens?

Evil is sly and persistent and very patient.

Seek the Light!

Stay in the Light!

Live in the Light!

Be the Light for others,

And show them the way out of the dark.
