"Butterflies"

The elegance of butterflies, a brightness on the breeze
A beauty on the wing of life, all gracefulness agrees
The colours, bright and sharp beneath the sun beneath the trees
A momentary loss is gained of all one's apathies
The wind picks up, a fear is felt but still the butterfly
Gracefully, moves on above the earth beneath the sky

Gosh but I love a good quote:

Mikhail Gorbachev: "Between the past and the future is the blink of an eye," he sings, "and that instant is what we call life." Yeah, Gorbachev, not Baryshnikov. Ha!

"Open wide"

I spread my arms out opened wide, lean back, I fall into
The open arms of life that hold me close and pass me through
To open, warm and gentle arms of loving in this life
No need, I find, to cringe away, facades are all the strife
Like stepping stones, upon a pond, that stand above the waves
The child is saved from drowning, life embraces what it craves
Nature brings me closer to the feel for such a way
Never far from nature will you ever see me stray
But, nature, all alone, can only be there for so much
Above the waves, upon the stones, one craves the human touch

"The mountaintop"

Looking down on vistas of all distant life
Harking to the distant song on the sweetest fife
Scanning all that moves below in forest
Still the song leaves echoes of the chorus
Scaling down that mountain is adventurous indeed
Immersed in vale's minutia is a challenge to the creed
The distant view from mountaintop is easy on the heart
Engaging in the every day is challenge from the start
The whirling tempest of the valley sets relentless pace
To keep one's head is paramount in such an enclosed space
So, tumble down the mountain on into the valley's arms
And find, up close, that life is but a myriad of charms

This has to be one of the funniest things I've ever read...

"Picturesque"

There have been times within my life that seemed so picturesque
That left in mind the imprint of a complex arabesque
A feel, a smell, or pattern left across the fields of mind
All senses well arrayed to swell the heart and later find
A vision, blinding, in its gift to take the breath away
Triggered by a sight or scent or song I seldom play
A song in heart that sings a sigh that only my heart hears
A surge of soul that slumbered deep across the spanning years
Perchance to wake at slightest hint of something in the past
And thunder through the senses with full weight and fully massed
Like breath upon a window pane, the intervening years
The sun burns through the foggy view and silent, windswept tears
And brings it all back home again, head bowed, I softly kneel
It brings the will to heightened state of majesty and steel
Eternal sighs, again, might be a phrase that I could use
But, breathless, from the memory, is word that I would choose
Beauty binds a way of life that captures as it sends
It happens just so often now, I wonder what portends
A hint of things to come? Of pure beauty's final race?
I staggerdrop and wonderfall at thought I might embrace
All of life, complete the dream, then, gone without a trace

"Boundless Joy"

Untrammeled in the heart and soul
Unleashed, the joy begins a stroll

It seeps in through the crevices unnoticed by them all
And bursts in sweetest blossoms that will crumble hurt and wall
The joy cannot be stopped to brood nor twisted far aside
With only boundless full intent, no sloth will it abide
Like floods upon the levee that protect the land of dread
Once joy arrives upon the scene, the panic will be fled
Evacuation of the angst and shreds of deep despair
All that remains of fear is just an echo in midair
A toast is shared of winsomeness and breath of freshest air
Hat's off to rainbow's colours and the brightness it can bear
The colours are as lush as rainbow's colours at the dawn
The luster of the love and all delight so blithely drawn

"gentle soul"

Ahhh, gentle soul, there is no ease when being bold as you
For easy 'tis to just charge on, not easy to be true
To hold the string that shoots the arrow to the center point
To aim the bow with eye sincere but, then, to disappoint
For, though the arrow was well aimed to hit the very center
Behind the bull's eye was the heart, which, also, did it enter

"Satisfaction"

The satisfaction that we all desire
The purpose that embodies life's own fire
The charge that sparks the reasons and the sight
That lights the candles beggaring the night
Is all contained within the sum of one
The woman lights the way like setting sun
True satisfaction comes without a cost
It is the transcendental that is crossed
The satisfaction now becomes the norm
Life and all its hardships now reform
When love, unbounded, blossoms all attune
That setting sun becomes as bright as noon
