Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Silver Gleam…

imageThe ocean seems to mourn

Drifting softly to the shore

I look to the expansive sea,
Heart heavy with ache.
Moons fullness above,
Stars seek escape.

Wind blows hardened palms,
There’s a rumbling in the tide.
Imagination dances with the mysteries,
The hidden are calling my curious mind.

So dark and deep
What lies beneath
I focus on what I can see
The moon’s silver gleam.
In the distance strikes of lightening
The light is anchoring
To the present moment, enhancing.

Is my heavy heart, right here?
Is my burdened soul, right now?
Waste I this day, tears for tomorrow?
When they’re nowhere to be found?

Is current pain, born of a future yet unborn,
Still the present, because it hurts so bad.
The storm’s in the distance.
It may never arrive, or perhaps it already has…

Written while at Hilton Head Island, SC. Had some hard days after Robin Williams committed suicide. Hit me hard. Will post a couple of poems from that week. Was amazingly beautiful there- right by the ocean.

Full Moon’s Portion…

image

Forcing its glow upon closest billows,
To smother the dark density.
Affirming it’s superiority.

The half moon of a full moon night,
All the sky was offering.
Clouds obscuring clarity.

Yet, no doubt, the fullness exists,
In its spherical certainty.
Anchored above sturdily.

Radiance diminished by perception,
Senses often employed carelessly.
When all are bathed in the celestial reality.

Ode To The Rotund Moon

Image

 

Geometrical perfection.
Illuminated night gem.
Cyclically shifting stages,
Holding the tide in submission.

Encouraging the dreamers’ visions.
Inspiring the introspective poet.
Directing eyes to the heavens.
Provoking exploration’s focus.

Illuminating paths abandoned by the day.
Bearer of crystals upon outstretched seas.
Sunrise amidst starlit skies.
Subject to God’s nocturnal biddings.

Reflection upon mirrored lakes.
Casting shadows once unknown.
Spreading its enchanting blue hue.
Leading the lost back home…

Tonight’s Moon…

Close enough to touch
To lasso and take along
Moonlight for my path.
