Dreams

Standard

Yesterday.

What’s done is done.

This moment,

What is yet to come.

My mind keeps

Digging,

Burying

And wondering.

Remembering,

Creating

And forgetting.

Let sleep come none to soon

And carry me to dreamland

Where no one

Restrains these

Thoughts.

These imaginings and reminiscings in

Sweet, vivid colors

As I dance through fallen

And falling leaves in the deep

Magical forest.

Snowflake flurries.

My amusement and joy magnified

In kaleidoscopic colors and melodies.

Peaceful

Joy.

Peaceful breaths.

Raspberries

Standard

I stepped outside

And it hit me like a wave;

The smell of fresh dirt;

The forest floor and raspberries.

Fresh raspberries.

Right there on the cement

Surrounded by cars and buildings.

Heartfelt memories tugging.

Tugging.

A scent that cannot be duplicated by man.

I knew instantly in my heart it was my father,

Gone 20 years now.

I was taken back to childhood

Days and picking delicious raspberries in the woods;

Eating more than ended up in the bowl.

I composed myself and

Walked to my car.

Sitting in the front seat;

Missing him.

I turned the key to start the

Engine

And there was his song playing.

The one my siblings and I requested on the Radio station the day of his funeral.

I am glad he reminds me he is near.

Word

Standard

I have felt every word

He writes.

I collect each letter;

Capital and lower case,

Exclamation points,

Question marks and all.

I put them in my heart.

Little folded notes of love and disdain.

Magic spells to remind

Me

I am not alone.

And I tiptoe and

Dance to his lyrics

When I am solitaire.

Sometimes

In the forest

Under the moonlight too,

With a passion free.

Just me

And his

Smile when I close my eyes.

Tingling and giddy I cannot help but

Fall into an endless spiral.

Down into the

Moss beneath my feet.

Secret bliss.

Velvet

Standard

I kneel to

Feel this;

 Raw earth.

My tears

Of gratitude fall 

For the wilderness has

At no time failed to

Save

Me

From myself.

In her stone and softness,

Her life and decay.

Always replenishing.

Forever

Sharing

All that she has to give.

I have lived many lives in the wilderness.
On the velvet forest floor
I lie.

My eyes lift to the heavens

As she soothes my soul

And i know this;

All

Is now as it ever has been and will be;

As it should be.
