I’d Rather Find Rainbows

I would rather be joyful

I’d rather hold hope.

I’d rather find rainbows

(Won’t dismiss pots of gold).

I’d rather know light

In the dawn

In the dusk,

Feel the song of the earth

As it peals in my heart.

Life, Captivating

As you breathe in the early (too early, today)

Pinking dawn of a fresh

Brand new


May it catch on the ledge of a dream

That had your soul

In its sway.

When life turns back onto itself

When flow seems stalled

Or slogs to mud

Hope still remains

A promise curled in gathered clouds

For though they hide the current sun

They still meander

Toward a future

Of fertile streams

To guard.

Wonder On

May we never stop to wonder.

May we never lose a dream.

May the image in our spirit

Find its way into our realm.

May the fairies that can flutter

In our younger, fresher soul,

Move forth awe and harvest marvel

To grow us closer to our whole.

He came in with a poem.

“I used to hate this stuff,” he noted, holding the page face down so I won’t peek while he explains. “But after you showed me ‘A Light in the Attic’ and told me what all this poetry word salad stuff means …” He grinned, pleased at being able to insert one of the expressions from last week. “I think it’s kinda’ fun, actually.”

He lifted his hand from the page, but left it hovering an inch above the white expanse. “You might not like this,” he warned. “It’s sort of a rap song. You know. People my age like those …”

I chuckled. “I know I’m much older than you but I actually don’t mind rap. It’s only when the language is really inappropriate that I don’t care for it.”

He peered at me, only half-convinced. “Anyway … no cuss words here. Even my mom said it’s fine. The first words are from her fridge magnet thingy.”

He turned the page and cleared his throat. “But tell me if you really like it, okay?” he glanced up, suddenly a lot less certain and a lot more the little boy. He took a deep breath. “Here goes …”

“As above

So below.

We learn more

As we go.

So make sure

To go slow.”

Jagged Masterpiece

A rocky castle in the sky

The waters

A cold

Aqua fuzz

And stony shark fins

In disguise.

A masterpiece

Sculpted by ice.

A Premonition

A thought

A hint

An intuition.

A tell

A clue

A premonition.

A small unfolding

Of suspicion.

Time to foresee

Allow an image of your soul

To echo through the chambers

Of your heart.

Let it take form

So your budding spirit can

Take root and unfurl

Your self

Into full bloom.

Astral Gown

Sun melt

As the sun

Melts the sand

Sprawls light on

Waves to ground

May the warmth

And the sound

Weave your soul

Astral gowns.
