A town full of happiness & joy
has turned sad like a broken toy.
Where once tourists frolicked in the sun,
frightened residents are on the run.
PREY FOR THE DEAD
I float in a swimming pool.
I feel relaxed and cool.
A breeze fills the air.
No one else swims near.
Two leaves drift beside me.
I turn my head to see.
Two whales grin back at me.
I’m in the big blue sea.
I jump into the pool.
I feel like a fool.
My mind played tricks on me.
I’m an author, you see.
Brush strokes of blue and gray
to fill in the puffy clouds.
Crayon swipes of teal and aquamarine
to meet the neverending horizon.
Each wave swell of purest white
rises from the depths of dark blue.
My fingers reach for the canvas.
My eyes travel to the brushes.
I shake my head.
No painting is needed.
No copy will diminish the essence
of a perfect summer day at the shore.

A day at the beach
So far from my reach.
I could smell the salt air
As it flows through my hair.
The white sand is so soft
As it holds me aloft.
I want to be there
Instead of my chair.
Bluebells to ring in the summer
when life can be such a bummer.
Tiny lights to brighten the day.
I’m happy they are here to stay.
Sweet fragrance sent from the Almighty.
Soothing music to calm the mighty.
