UNTIL THE NIGHT

 

  1.  

    The bushes move.

    They have a heartbeat.

    A movement of their own.

    To an unknown tune.

    They surround me.

    They comfort me.

    In the darkness.

    In the night.

    Until the morning light.

    When the sun wakes.

    The bushes part.

    And let me out.

    Ready for a new day.

    Until the night.

     

     

WHISPERS

 

 

Should I stay?

Or should I go?

The island calls to me.

It whispers my name.

The bridge sighs.

It weeps for me.

I will walk across.

It wobbles to and fro.

I hold tight to the ropes.

One step gives way.

So does the next.

The sides unravel.

It hangs by strings.

I can’t go back.

Or forward.

Time stands still.

Then I’m falling.

Water so cold.

Hits my face hard.

Silence takes it turn.

Water covers the rest.

GARDEN OF DELIGHT

 

A garden of delight for me.

In colors of the deep blue sea.

In my mind’s eye I can see.

Myself falling into thee.

In the shade of the plum tree

I’lll wait and you’ll come to me.

We’ll fly away to be free.

To the waves of the blue sea.

BY THE DEEP BLUE SEA

 

 

A walk down the street.

Fragrances so sweet.

White cobblestones line the way.

Here is where I want to stay.

Away from the madding crowd.

A place where I can be proud.

To call my new home.

I don’t need a phone.

All I need is a soft bed.

To lay down my weary head.

The fishermen’s cries will wake me.

For my day by the deep blue sea.

A FIELD OF POPPIES

 

 

A field of poppies.

Tempting as they may be.

I cannot yield to them.

My head would be clouded.

My thoughts floating away.

A day of fantasies and dreams.

I must hold steadfast.

And walk away.

Keep my mind clear.

For thoughts I hold dear.
