Oneness

Oneness is present

singular beauty stands tall

Bravery prevails

Painting Sadness


An artist looked deep

inside my broken heart

and tried to paint its sadness

but he knows

I rather hide my melancholy

behind fields of lavender

so instead my portrait is a

lonely landscape

filled with dreams

I have forgotten to chase

after

The artist looks at his

painting and sighs

with satisfaction.

Ironically,

it makes so many others

feel at peace.

 

 

Fields of Lavender

 

 

Cabin in the Sky


She asked for a cabin in the sky;
Nothing fancy she’d say.

I know now her wish came true.
When in a dream
She invited me to view
Her new home.

She guided me through
Green pastures of Kentucky blue grass,
fields of stargazer lilies and yellow and white daffodils galore,
knolls of lavender and rows of sage
and trees laden with fruit coming of age

Eleven years have gone by since her passing
And through this dream
Her message was clear:
There is nothing to fear!
The love never dies;
And I am so happy
She got her Cabin in the Sky.
