pumpkin spice against dark sky –
night melodies flow.
THE MUSIC OF NOW
Who are you and where are you going?
What drives the truck and fuels the tank of your knowing?
In you I see light so brightly aflame and burning,
Seeking wisdom, courage, always bright, always yearning.
For just awhile turn off your mind, be at rest.
Sit beside the stream of life, watch the sun set in the west.
Do not think you must be more than you are today;
For this moment find joy, let the music of now play.
Each has a cadence
all its own.
Each brings change
by its tone.
In nature’s song
we play a part,
from the heart.
Is it good, this thing called change?
Yesterday I was free,
today caught in some
neither one thing
And then – change comes.
flying into the day
wing color like
jewels in the sun.
this thing called change
The haiku MOONLIGHT came to me on a sleepless night this past week. The other poems are previously published and reflect seasons of change.
