A few poems I wrote years ago

    Celestial Sails
                      Instead of shades of grey
             Let’s break out the pastel paints
                     Or crayola crayons coloring in and out of the lines
             A beautiful picture
                     That awakens and invigorates the senses
             Sometimes I’m senseless-
                      Not in tune with my inner soul and mind
             It’s time to unwind this knot inside
                      So my sails can ride 
             This celestial wind
                      Of a voice within 
             And everywhere around

                     Say goodbye to excess

                     Say hello to what’s real
                     From the soul that’s the deal
                     What’s inside
                     Keep it real
                     Don’t hide behind
                     The shadows
                     Of self-doubt
                     It’s time to step out
                     With vision and confidence
                      In real world innocence
                      And vulnerability
                       Words are ammunition 
                           Expressions of our souls and of humanity in all its forms
                                       Exposing Uplifting shifting our hearts and minds 
                                                                                    Freedom we find

In a picture
                  The molded clay and cobblestone way
                  Up the mezzanine; Latin and Victorian houses
                  Overlooking pier docks jetting into the bay
                   White sails and blue waves
                   Crashing and splashing
                   On the boulder borders
                   Of land and sea.
                   Flowers and vines grow rapidly
                   Perfect weather out of a dream
                   Romantic scenery
                   Who could tire of such a relaxing place?
