So Very Sad

Contemplating beauty…

   So Very Sad

She asks that I pray
Why’s his face so very sad
It’s just made that way

How So Much

Contemplating love…

   How So Much

How much can I say
How so much in love I am
When I missed the day

Sing-Song Of Whales

Contemplating perspective…

   Sing-Song Of Whales

Seas subtle and blunt
The sing-song of whales echo
Submariners hunt

All The History

Of love and commitment…

   All The History

An old man speaks of
His wife and all the history
Still so much in love

A New Star In The Sky

Contemplating the wonder of life…

Excerpted from   –   A New Star In The Sky

I looked up and there it was
New star in the sky
Why’s it there? Or just because?
Beauty way up high

Doesn’t really matter why
Only that it’s there
And I watch it with a sigh
Shine without a care…

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 End of All

Contemplating fear, panic, and mass hysteria…   On the other hand…

   The End of All

Such hype and concern
The end of all but once more
The world did not burn

   -gl-

Poking fun at the end of the world…   Once more…   On the other hand…

In Wonder

Contemplating the beauties of mystery…

   In Wonder

In worlds of wishes
Life invested in wonder
Chasing Eclipses
