Colors blend in clouds,
The amber sky is glowing,
White stars will soon shine.

I see everything,
I've been where you've been and back,
I know your future.

Quiet waves approach,
Merging with the fallen sun,
The water is calm.

Bite size, yet so big,
Carrying all that is pure,
Soft as a pillow.

Reflections of time,
Floating across the river,
Memories arise.

Beyond the mountains,
Sunlight rests above the clouds,
Hidden by the storm.
When I hold my tongue,
My mind becomes a prison,
For it is there,
That every unsaid word,
Is left to dwell.

I make it a point to get up at odd hours,
While the world sleeps,
For that is when,
The uninterrupted beauty of the universe,
Is mine alone.

When I hesitate,
I think of the warrior,
Moving with reckless rage,
And find meaning in the moment.

If you claim to be like me,
I'll label you a liar,
For I would recognize myself,
In another.

While walking down the seashore,
I came across a broken shell,
And pondered on,
How many pieces of me,
Have been taken away.

Gentle, playful faces,
Dancing slowly in solitude,
In a conflicting world,
I found love standing alone.
Endless trees secluded by nature,
Where strength sleeps and birds sing,
I smell life as I pass through its grasp,
And regain the innocence I lost long ago.
Too old to go back,
Too young to go yet,
Perpetual thoughts,
Orbit the mind,
An eternal existence,
Or temporary stay.
Twilight rests on Mother Nature's cheek,
Storm clouds slowly fade away,
Lily pads hold hands in the pond,
Awake, the feared animal begins its prowl,
While the ocean settles its dispute with the sand.
