Dancing in the Shadows I move into the mistThe sky is a gray blackThe moon is out shiningbright through the mistI have lost my wayI struggle to find youBut I can’t I searched everywhere I came across a fireBurning bright Amongst the mist and gray Surrounding it are spiritsDancing in the shadows of the nightThey have always been there Hidden by timeFigures are highlighted by the fireI look around Finally I see youShadow dancing with the othersI take a deep breath and Realize I am now freeI start dancing in the shadows
Winter Moment Imagine walking through the snow into a forest full of pine trees.Pine cones litter the ground.As you stop amongst the trees, all you can hear is the silence.A slight cool breeze rustles through the trees moving the limbs.The branches sway back and forth to the rhythm of the breeze.Snow left on the branches gently falls down slowly, as small flakes.As they hit your coat and face, they sit for a moment before leaving.You reach out your hand to try and capture one. It melts.An owl sits up high on one of the branches looking down at you and the world all around.The sky is clear, and there is a glimmer of the moon lighting the path aheadAt the end of the path, is a log cabin with a light on in the window.You are returning home.
Spring Warm spring breezes move through the airWind chimes gently playing a quiet tuneBranches gently swaying Birds out singing their songBuilding nestsSun shining down on flowers and flowering treesA fragrant scent of spring in the airOutside cafes serving coffee People adorned in bright colors The season has changed
Just Believe In the darkest of timesWhen all hope seems lostWhen we are afraid In painSuffering If we can hang on and believe Just a little while longerThe light will shine once again
Gratitude After my Freedom Day The day I went out to a cafe After very long lockdown I cannot forget to have gratitude For the doctors, front line workers Scientists, developers Researchers I would not be free without themThe vaccine has helped To stem my fears and anxiety My worryAbout the virus I am grateful and in aweOf what was done In such a short time To be able to create itTo administer itI can go out nowCarefully It’s not over yet
Freedom DayAfter a long hard year Frightening at times Waiting Hoping It’s Freedom dayTime to go outTime to sit in a cafeTime to watch the worldTime to explore It’s been a long time It feels good but strange I made it to the other side I am finally free
Moon and StarsAs the day begins to slowly fade away like a coat being taken off for the night, what comes is the calm stillness. Sit outside and enjoy the moment. Take in the scene when the stars and moon adorn the sky like fine jewelry. Notice the beautiful tapestry of the black velvet sky and marvel at the scene before you. Mother Nature, the artist.
Dark cloudy gray dayCoolness to the airDankness permeates Birds on the roof eating Chirping sounds in the airCreates stillness and quiet A cat cozied up sleeping Looks like rain is possible Good day for coffee or teaInside Doing quiet things
