Burgundy Moon

with lightly treading steps
inhaling deep the richness before me
the breath of the trees
fill my lungs with purity

the tinged mist all around
and the reddish-pinkish orb barely there
brown thin tendrils reach to the sky
as if clamoring to hug it

the magic of this night draws me in
the whispers of the woods fill my head
as if begging for a dance under the burgundy moon
mystery and enchantments guide me further in

Free

like a chick let out
from its white cage
the fear is real
but the adventure more compelling

decisions of our own making
choices for our betterment
commitments for happiness
actions causing joy

when we dare live
what our journey should be
where we choose our state of bliss
how enriching is that?

Light

these times weigh heavily
cries for safety all around
our minds, our bodies and our souls left craving

take me where

physically…
a feeling of weightlessness
serenity
ease confronting life

emotionally…
being buoyant almost
lifted up without effort
naturally

mentally…
shining even under cover
penetrating the brain
awakening a path forward

…i can get my fill

Hope

like winter to spring
i can smell the transition
to new beginnings

my joyful anticipation
making me erupt
in a spontaneous dance

the water spraying
in an exulting expression
delighting in my future

…the hereafter looks promising

Taking Flight

colorful display
delightful array rising
headed for the sky

While this image may seem the only reason for these words, go a little deeper. I feel like it’s a great image of the type of world I want to live in. We are surrounded by so many beautiful people of all colors, we must choose to lift them up and let them rise to their potential – literally the sky’s the limit!

Looking Ahead

The
evening
hours are when
I begin to
plan some needed joy
for the next new morning.
A surprise breakfast perhaps?
A juicy love note tucked inside
my lover’s lunch tote filled with goodies?
He might not even want to go to work!
