The hardest thing I have ever done

Was to put down in words

Feelings that were never meant to be fun

It was a typical day full of beauty, the wind dancing through the trees.

The scent of fall heavy in the air. A simple song filled my mind and brought a tear.

The sky scatted bits of blue where cloud played peek-a-boo, left me feeling calm.

A bit of Deja Vu scattered about like the fallen leaves,

Covered the ground as far as the eye could see.

What meaning could I read in these?

Simple dreams from eternity

If I closed my eyes would I still be able to see?

Or were these just artifacts of reality?

The colors swirled inside my head,

Autumn’s bright brush hid the dead

A disguise or just a play instead?

Gathering my wits about me, I set out to explore the world

Finding treasures and novelties galore

I might have been satisfied but I knew there must be more

I just couldn’t imagine how or what for

I came across some creatures, playing with their own

Each cloaked in garments, uniquely their own

I stooped to watch them playing when suddenly it started to rain

In wonder I saw them de robe and heard one exclaim

Tomorrow we’ll meet again and they all melted away

I looked at the puddles of shimmering water, all colored with their remains

I might have been sad but remembered; we are all made the same

I wondered if I too was being watched by creatures unnamed

And so I took off my cloak and melted all away.

What seemed forever, took my breath and in its place

Left me pulsing in the falling rain.

I was re-membered by some ancient soul.

Who took me home and stood me by the door

I was grateful for the comfort and warmed by the kindness

I wanted to reciprocate but hampered by the blindness

I seemed only to make myself smaller and smaller.

One day, while cleaning, the ancient one saw me as I scurried across the floor

Wondering if I was supposed to be still by the door

Gently and carefully, I was picked up and placed by the stove

There simmered a cauldron, of such intense wonder

I fell into a deep sleep. Little did I know I was the seasoning for the main course.

Ever More

Just once I dreamed of ever land and the ever day

I knew when I felt it, that I would ever stay

Yet, all the awe and wonder that lay beyond the edge

Drew me like distant thunder

The light of being shone so bright,

I found myself near blind in the light.

Yet somehow I knew it felt so right.

Just once it happens, a feeling that can not be described

A sense of being, belonging warmth rising inside

In all its subtle and changing ways,

The sense of self immersed beneath the waves.

For there, the most precious of all would bloom

Nurtured throughout the years

Fed love and kindness, and watered with tears

An awe full beauty, freed of fears

I have danced with you so many times, to music inside the soul

A moment here, where time would dwell, and feelings swell

While waves of wonder crash upon the shore of consciousness

It is there we met, amid the noise of all that might be.

The way we played, brought many who might be

Long ago, we shared a simple song of being

And while we played, we never forgot the words and melody

We knew each other would sing along


It was a simple thing to realize

Yet so hard to say

Feelings bursting all about

So much inside to want to convey

It was a sort of torture to feel that way

Words and all expression seemed so clumsy and trite

Yet, given us, as a way

I’ll never know when the moment arrives

For in the bliss, time can not survive

Eternity just a glance away

How can words every hope to say

The feelings inside, that only another could know

With you I have a chance to play, to express and feel

To wonder and be like no other
