Lightning’s Leap

Contemplating the power and beauty of nature…

Excerpted from   –   Lightning’s Leap

Lightning rips the night sky
Children flinch even while deep asleep
Thunder cracks in the wake of sudden lightning’s leap
Hear nature’s awesome cry

Watching out the window
Nothing there but light filled explosions
Darkness darker under the solid sheets of rain

Storms delivering renewed life as well as pain…

The Sun Rises

Contemplating love, commitment, and fear…

   The Sun Rises

What is it you fear
The sun rises, then it sets
Lovers grow too near

In Wonder

Contemplating the beauties of mystery…

   In Wonder

In worlds of wishes
Life invested in wonder
Chasing Eclipses

Definition of Beauty

Contemplating beauty…

   Definition of Beauty

She’s become my definition of beauty
She was always hot
And I can’t repeat lots of the compliments I got
About how shapely

Her shape was
A dream
Then and now that’s still the same

But thru the years everything’s found a new frame
And seems
That because

Of all that she’s come to be
And has taught
Me. This and all that she is has brought
Me to see she is the definition of beauty
