In the shadows of a song

Past, present, and future laid.

Words and verse now belong

To thoughts and feelings left unsaid.

Verse and Rhyme   5 comments

In my quiet nighttime space

I go to find that private place

Where dreams and memories hide

And the secret parts of me abide.

The well worn path along a stream

The snow white sand around the beach

The room in which we used to dream

The dreams that are now out of reach

All part of the life that’s me

A book that’s open for all to see

If they would only take the time

To find the verse and read the rhyme.

Renewal   2 comments

***

Gently and quietly

As a soft summer breeze

With a sweet natural song

 Like the wind through the trees

*

In the kiss of a raindrop

On the sparkle of dew

In the brightness of sunrise

Love’s spirit renews.

Today I met a young man who was in love.

His clothes were torn; his shoes were worn,

But his eyes betrayed a glow,

A look that only those who love

Will ever come to know.

.

Some only saw a pauper,

But my eyes beleld a king,

Whose only real posession

Was worth more than earthly things.

Was then  I met the girl he loved,

A youthful pauper queen

And understood the happiness

That, in his eyes, I’d seen.

Beauty is

.

The happiness that’s in a song

.

The closeness of a trusted friend

Evening shadows, thin and long

The peace that’s at a journey’s end

Beauty is

Ripples on a quiet pool

The round blue earth viewed from afar

The brilliance of a precious jewel

A cloudless night that’s filled with stars

Beauty is:

The color of an autumn hillside

Mountains cloaked in winter’s snow

A rainbow when the storm subsides

The sunset’s quiet afterglow.
