Frozen Roses

It can be a cold world.
I don’t have to tell you
that. We know this.
Events, people, places
can stop us in our tracks.
It can get chilly. Life can
freeze almost all things:
just not time. Not this
time. We must carry
the warmth needed
to keep us heated.
We must survive this
snowstorm that keeps
most frozen. Pedals
from your frozen roses
remind me to find truth –
to remain warm: alive.
Your frozen roses remind
me to search and find
love I have left behind.

Her Island

She’s happy on her island.
She has made it her own.
She has more than shown.
Her love supplies the sky
with sunlight. Her eyes
see a life she wants: life
by the sea. Who can
blame her? She is free
on her island. The plants
are healthy. The animals
are healthy, too. She made
the island that way. Life
thrives on her island
and I wanted to visit.
I swam across the water.
I arrived. I looked around
to find her. Not after long,
I ran into a dog that led me
to her – to you. I found you.
I thank you for letting me
on your island. I will stay
for as long as you want me.
We can sit on the beach,
with the sea within reach.

Seeds of Solitude

Many plant seeds. Some don’t.
Some don’t have any soil.
Some don’t have any seeds.
Some don’t have what they
need. You can’t plant seeds
that you don’t have. Seeds
seem to believe they are
something that can grow.
More than we know, seeds
will sprout and will be out
and about. We must work
together to plant many seeds
of love – seeds of solitude.
Let’s share our soil as there
is plenty of room to bloom.

Room to Grow

In this life, there is room
for more love – more growth.
Like the sea, you and me
move back and forth on earth.
For what it’s worth, it works
if we are willing to work.
We must grow in this life
to brighten our own light.
There is time to still shine.
There is a chance to be free.
Remember: health is wealth.
Keep growing up. Don’t look
down. Look around and show
me how much you have grown.

A Regular Rain

Rain is pouring with stars soaring.
Rain comes down from up high
and falls down from the sky.
Rain from above will shower faces
with eternal love. All rain allows
flowers to grow. Rain comes down
as thoughts flow to the places
I know. I know I am glad
to say that the rain came.
