Seek First #Decima #Poem

The earth is teeming with delights!
We have a few, but want them all.
They beckon with a siren call
And offer solace in the night.

But o the folly, o the fright!
Awakening upon the worst,
We find our hoped-for blessings cursed;
Our choices hasty and unwise…
But we can choose the Spirit’s eyes
And focus on the Heavens first!

Written for
Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 29 (FRIGHT) This week, it’s the A rhyme line.

Frenzy’s Folly #Poem

In folly frenzy finds us caught
When running races we are off
With dashed decisions’ desperate calls
Inviting us to folly’s halls.

By taking tests and testing time,
We rest in rhythm’s reasoned rhyme.
With Nature’s knowing we are fed
By bearing boldly, being blessed!

When frenzy’s folly faces fate,
We wait on wisdom’s choice to make!

My response to
DVerse Poetics: Folly.

One Light #Poem

One Light is all we need and All we are.
Through Light we live, we spark, we shine like stars.

The All There Is, One Life, no you or I.
Truth breathes One Breath, no end to Life so high.

We think, “What if?” We ask; our mind says, “BUT!”
No change in laws of who and where and what.

Go in! Go in to seek, to see, to find
One Light, One Life, right here, right now, in Mind!

Do hope, do love, do live and be your best;
Light guides all back to One; in Whom we rest.

Making Friends with Night #Poem

I used to await the night with dread,
because I couldn’t sleep
Or had nightmares when I did drift off.

There was no cozy cabin in the woods for me,
no memories of picnics with deviled eggs,
no land of blossoms,
no trusting unicorn prancing for a ride.

And so, I became a night owl,
even as a child.
Being older now,
I still don’t sleep well at night,
and I still have nightmares at times.

Yet I await the night
like the dawning of the Age of Aquarius,
for this is when ideas take shape.
Cotton clouds drift across my mind,
becoming day dreams turned reality.

It’s night!
It’s showtime!

Paint Chip Poetry Prompt #43: To Night.

Colors Fall #Haiku #Poem

Leaves drifting from trees
Light reflects, receeds, renews
Rainbow colors fall.

Rainbow colors Fall
Orange, red, browns darkening
Nature calls for change.

Nature calls for change
Within our bodies ringing
Tides that ebb and flow.

Tides of ebb and flow
Earth and sky and sea respond
As below, above.

Tempting Fate #Decima #Poem

We know the things we shouldn’t do,
But often we refuse to wait.
We’re causing karma, tempting fate
With consequences. That’s the truth.

Yet we’re not lost, and we’re not through!
The soul within us always lasts
In present’s future, leaving past.
We’re living out the ebb and flow
That Nature-God already knows,
By choice becoming what we ask!
