Midnight Pause of Nature

By JW

Express Yourself
You are true
Unbound by space and time
Down to earth, Paradise within reach

I breathe in the mountain air
This is the way of nature
The sun arises over the mountain
I express gratitude and reverence

I yearn to walk barefoot in the grass
Is it safe?
The moon turns orange on my right and shines
through my window
Is it looking at me?

The geese disappear
What happened?
The flowers are gone
Did I do something wrong?

I would love to eat from a fruit tree
It brings delight to my taste buds
I see a rainbow in my sink
Did it just wink at me as a coded message in time?

Purple & Gold Passion

By DW

Purple and gold skies
Magnificent
As my heart yearns for more
I close my eyes
Collect my thoughts
Think about my passion for living
Am I living?
Through several windows
And fences
I see
Purple and gold skies
My passion
