A Grey Elephant

A grey elephant sits on top a large rock –
about the same size as him. The sun begins
to rise. Both stay still – waiting to take something
on. The rock stays put; it never was alive.
The grey elephant lives and is feeling alright.
The grey elephant knows he does not want to be
like that rock. He wants to use his trunk and play.
The elephant moves from atop his rock.
The elephant decides to start his long walk.

In the Woods

In the woods, all life thrives.
Animals roam in their home.
Some people choose to move.
Some stay put in the woods –
to experience mother nature.
In the woods, energy changes
without help from human
hands or plans of destruction.
In the woods, this life is good,
like it should be. In the woods,
time stops. Nature goes without
a clock. Life pushes on and on.
In the woods, all worry is gone.

Weightless

Often times, I am floating
with nothing to hold me down.
I feel weightless like a feather
in just about any weather.
I feel weightless, yet I carry
all this weight. Sometimes,
I wonder how I can rid myself
of all bad things that remain.
The pain and anguish will soon
parish. I can feel myself become
light as negative thoughts rot.
My body will continue to drive
just as long as I want to ride.

Spring Healing

Sunshine will soon shimmer.
The scorching sun will remind
us that we are at the mercy
of Mother Earth as Father Time
takes its course. It’s cold now,
but you just wait. Not before
long, the cold will grow old
and be gone. I see us feeling
more free in the coming weeks.
I can see new beams of love
coming from above. I know
there are good days ahead
with more light to be shed.

The King of Spring

I got a spring in my step:
a twinkle in my eye.
The sun is blazing
as my needs are met.
On this day, I won’t be shy.
You bet I will be staying
until the sun is set.
I’m not sad, no need to be
when my soul runs free.
The chirping birds
and pastel-colored words
are being sung and heard.
To me, it must be spring;
Why not dance and sing?
I got a spring in my step:
a real reason to breathe.
There’s no reason to frown
as sunlight hits my crown.
