Spirit Poems III


As oceans pull us away, and bring memories again even of our first creation,

poetry will fill our spirits, as we drift further into

the unlimited, meeting the sky

where dolphins play,

just under the surface, and dancing


the stories of our scars.

Walk On Spirit, Walk On


Walk on spirit, walk on, past the shadows lingering

from our political ashes

beyond the rhetorical chains

walk on, and run into the safety

of earth and sky, where oceans release

our humanity, and poetry sings

a sweet melody,

into the center of our hearts,

where love is remembered

pulled out, rescued

from the lifeless


Walk on spirit, walk on.

Shining Brightly in the Sun

Oceans 184

Green and blue rolling, shining brightly in the sun

as the seagulls hover, expecting bread

the wind moving your straw hat,

in our beach chairs 

I watch you reading,

and I silently wonder

how I ever lived without you,

and again

you take my breath away,

so I pledge my life to you

all over again
