A Future as One…

Swing with me

In a world of true make-believe

Where we are free

To embrace our dreams

Of tomorrow and today

Plans swirling as we play

Hold my hand, I’ll show you the way

Swing with me for eternity

The Moment…

image

Be still my over active mind,
Exist inside the moment.
Where the noise is less abrasive,
Exit the spiraling confinement.

This moment, so elusive.
I need anchor and chains.
Past and present live in projections,
I seek release from immaterial refrains.

Conscious contact with God
Rests in this moment.
I seek His sunlight,
And nurturing fulfillment.

Unsung… (Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge- Final Day)

For today’s prompt, write a “calling it a day” poem. Some people might call this “Miller time,” others may refer to it as “closing time.” Just remember: Don’t call it a day until you put it in a poem.

Calling it a day
Before the day is done
Rushing into tomorrow
Before the morning sun

Unable to sit still
Unable to settle
A future on fire
From today’s candle

The distance traveled
Is all in the mind
An illusory existence
Of a machine, bending time

Calling it a day
Before the day is done
Negates the present moment
Leaving life’s songs unsung

A Future In Recovery… Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge. Prompt: Future

 

image

I once knew my future.
I could see it in my mind.
Not really one I would have selected,
If I could have chosen from a line.

I once felt hopeless about the future,
I didn’t know why I had to wait.
I wondered why I was here at all,
Why I couldn’t just rush fate.

I once feared the future,
Unsure if I had enough strength.
To make it through the pain,
In the path of final tragedy.

But I realize I was wrong,
That the lenses I peered through were tainted.
By deception and fears I’d adopted,
Regarding a future unpainted.

I no longer claim knowledge of what’s to come.
Predicting, I don’t even try.
I don’t worry about what will be.
One day at a time, on God I rely.

Waiting…

Just around the bend
Mysteries of future steps
Await your courage

In Your Eyes…

Image

In your eyes I see,
A light which outshines the sun.
I see laughter and a playful spirit,
And many beautiful songs yet sung.

I see strength for life’s challenges,
And hope for the future.
I see a heart impenetrable by darkness,
And intentions good and pure.

I see dreams untamed,
Wishes upon fields of dandelions.
I see intelligence surpassing average,
And poetic stories filled with rhyme.

Natural gifts and talents,
Creativity and artistic desire,
A fighter for self-expression,
A life-force on fire.

I see a star filled sky,
With your own constellations.
Open canvases awaiting your brush strokes,
A multitude of colors to paint your aspirations.

I see so much within your eyes;
All you need be is you.
I’ll love you forever,
I pray you see what I see too…
