Shimmer’s Glimmer

Evening gathers to call

Flocks to watering hole

And to glimmers of fish

In the sparkling bowl.

Palm to palm

Whispers calm,

As the pond

Drained but bright

Refracts sun’s glinting light

From silvery fins

‘Til a good night.

Cherish every moment

Left

Of light as

Suns will set.

Hold on to the

Deep rewards

Of daylight breathed

Through soul,

And saved.

To The Seashore

I will go to the seashore

Where the waves touch the sky.

I will go to the seashore

To kiss the day fond goodbye.

I will go to the seashore

Where the boats come on home,

And the children still play,

And the sun’s last rays roam,

And my soul sings with the surf

Where it has always belonged.

Bank On Peace

If nothing else

You can bank

On some peace

Come day’s end.

On a breath

By the water

When a ripple

Extends.

On a sigh

Of the chest

Born of awe

Seeped with ease.

You can count

On some peace

Come day’s end.

Me, too, please.

It’s A Breeze

Ripples speed

With the breeze

Whipping small waves

With ease

On the surface

Of these

Waters guarded

By trees.

Reflecting On Reflection

Sky and clouds

Take a swim

As day fills

To the brim,

And the light

Lets you know:

As above

So below.

Revisiting Tranquility

As cooler days strip the grass

Into brown freezer spots,

Recall days of lush summer

Full of green sunny lots.

Take a breath

Of warm memory,

Hold the story

It told.

It will return

When the weather,

Meanders back from

The cold.
