Among the clouds
I drift away
Soft into the spring sky.

All that surrounds
Is the peace
Within my glowing mind.

Bird’s melodic verses,
Sifted by distance
Are companions to my ears.

The warmth of the sun
Blankets my soul,
As the tangible disappears.

Suspended by draping moments
Encapsulated by their own passing,
My heart beats in pace with serenity.

And suddenly I’m aware.
I will have to descend once more,
To a world abrasively consuming.

If I were an enchanted camera
Passed between photographer’s hands
Teleported through space by passion
To beautiful and exotic lands

I’d be an immortalizer of moments
Sharing my secrets with existence
With dreamers and bucket-list hopefuls
Encouraging action and persistence

I’d help reveal God’s perfection in nature
Open eyes to sufferings and needed change
Evoke the emotional spectrum
Uniting people who are normally estranged

I would dawn inspiration which inspires
Poems, and paintings, and songs
Which extend to future generations
When I am long gone

To stand atop a mountain, serene
Vast landscape touched by a setting sun
To rest next to a powerful waterfall
Or quietly witness a lioness and her cubs
A perspective of one, shared with many
Gifts to those who won’t observe
Connecting a universe by magical clicks
If I were an enchanted camera, I’d happily serve…

Me Within…

Paused for reflection,
Amidst a revolving world.
I saw me within…
