Moonshine

A reflection of light

softly upon the ocean at night

mirroring the tried and true

a masquerade upon the hues of blue

a revelation of genuineness

the authentic you

the ocean that cleanses

exposing a truth

the counterfeit image

a hoax to the world

the very thing that imprisoned

was self gratification preserved

so be real, be tangible

who you were born to be

the world doesn’t care

about a fake V.I.P.

Reflection 2019


Looking into reflective waters

another year comes to an end

like a sunrise and a sunset

time continuously transcends

The rising of the morning sun

when things are so brand new

beginning a fresh journey in life

with lots of hope coming through

And as time moves on

like ripples of water

quickly flowing downstream

the good, the bad, and the ugly

fills the dash of life inbetween

And just like a runner in a race

who sees the finish up ahead

when there’s too much distance

one never looks back

but pushes forward instead

then sunset appears with bursting colors

just around the bend

it’s time for a new cycle in life

the old must come to an end

For life can be just like a race

always a choice to ascend

it doesn’t matter how one starts the year

but it matters how you end

Dear Friend

In this journey of life

there are many faces

that will cross your path

in different places

of stages in life

some stay and some go

you can count on one hand

those who remain know

to hold someones heart

is a privilege from above

not to be trampled

but protected in love

when you’re happy, they’re happy

and when you hurt, they hurt

a genuine friend dirties their hands

in all of your messiness overt

whether it’s friendship or love

always choose the first

but to have friendship and love

a true bond unrehearsed

Remember

Remember

when you were young in spirit

venturing away

no cares of the world

only dreams of play

Remember

when your childlike exploits

were innocent and pure

adventerous and curious

confident and assured

Remember

when nothing could stop

that fire inside

the world was your oyster

intuition your guide

Remember

when your voice was enough

and your heart led the way

the noise of the world

never led you astray

Do you remember?

Going the Distance

A flock of seabirds

frolicking in the sand

mimicking one another

playing catch me if you can

As one takes off into the air

it’s joined by a dozen more

gliding over rippling waves

ready to explore

The vastness of the coral reefs

full of little surprises

landing to feed just a bit

as the morning sun arises

The group takes off in flight again

the tide begins to swirl

flying where the wind may take them

waking up the world

The Lavender Tree

There once stood a lavender tree

distinct from all the rest

it had no leaves nor bore no fruit

but thriving nonetheless

With roots deeply grounded

blanketed in the same green grass

unequal in beauty to it’s towering neighbors

but whose foundation could not surpass

The sturdiness of the lavender tree

with branches reaching open sky

seeking the affection of sunlit rays

kissed by invisible energy supply
