A large framework of patience,
Relying on internal forgiveness,
All around the force of honesty,
Timely treasures are found within."

Blinded by Colors.......

I am blinded by the color,
Orange that is found in the canyons of Utah,
Gray that is from the sage brush of eastern Oregon,
Baby blue skies of western Montana,
Cotton white clouds over a summers day in Ohio,
Yellow sunflower fields in Italy,
Lavender swaying in the breeze of France,
I am blinded yet inside,
Always forgiving yet another day.

Life goes on,

I am blind to the reality that good, bad, and ugly will always be apart of this world. E-

Fire Will Be Released......

"The fire will be released,
Against an imprisoned soul,
Wicked depths of despair,
Conquest of Equality,
To produce a mark,
The endurable forbearance,
Fear in the enemies sword,
Seeking the Liberty of truth,
Having not contentment,
Never reveling the fire within."

Life goes on....

Amongst the flames of truth. E-

Tick-Talk Goes the Clock...........

"Tick-Talk goes the clock,
Clinging against a narrow tower,

So shall the day
Pass away with time."

"On a Rainy day,
Staying inside,
Wishing, hoping,
It will go away.

On a Rainy day,
Wanting to go outside,
Wishing, hoping,
It will go away.

On a Rainy day,
Don't be doubtful,
Wishing, hoping
Rain will never pass away."

Life goes on....

Rain is a blessing which gives life to every living thing. E-

Everlasting Garden...........

"Amongst the fragrant blooms,
Swaying branches give way,
A peace in the moment,
Grazing all around,
To the vibrant colors that abound,
A ray of light gleaming down,
Through the lurking shadows,
Upon a bench I rest,
In the everlasting garden,
Beneath my soul."

Life goes on.....

In the everlasting garden. E-

A Faint Voice.........

"No body, No place, No where
Silently against my window pain,
A north wind drizzled rain,
Ringing of my cell,
A faint voice came,
My baby was taken away!
The door is locked,
All inside,
Officers are coming!
Quickly packing,
No body, No place, No where."

Life goes on.....

my youngest daughter and her baby are now safe. My Lord has been good to me! E-

"Finding the time to balance ones life,
Confronting conflicts religiously,
Allowing manipulations along the way,
Drifting into frustrations that never part,
All in the matter of,
Finding the time to balance ones life."

The Mountain......

In the coral sea,
For now I will climb,
The mountain that is near me."

Life goes on...

The mountain will be climbed. E-

Phantom of the night.....

"At the hour of midnight,
With a cloak of darkness upon my room,
The door opened,
Slowly in came a presence,
Silently it came forward,
Creeping low to the floor,
I leaned forward,
Closer I looked.
Oh! my goodness,
A phantom of the night,
No! my black cat."

Life goes on....

Even for a "phantom" cat! E-

A Kind Heart.......

"Entering a fortress,
Made of earth and water,
Rises an emblem,
In the center,
A kind heart."

Standing alone......

Waiting for the incoming tide,
I am small but brave,
Don't take me away!
I will fly!
Even though I am alone."

Amongst tides I swim against......

"Amongst tides I swim against,
Holding onto this feeling,
No way is it reality,
My mind is drifting,
Into a sphere of no reality,
Amongst tides I swim against."
