In Another World

Everyone needs a getaway from time to time, whether real or imagined. I wrote the first poem to help remember how it felt to get away to Puerto Rico some years ago. While the visit was only brief, I will never forget how rejuvenating the trip was and I wanted to recreate that carefree feeling. The second poem reflects how sometimes we can feel uplifted by just taking a walk on a beautiful day.

In Another World

In another world…. far from here
I am free to be as blithe
As a coconut tree
Swaying softly in a warm cool breeze

Where pelicans dive for endless fish
Into shimmering blue jewels of a forever sea
And sanderlings dance to and fro
As waves slapping time, continuously flow

Ocean sounds that soothe the soul
Caress an unwashed blameless beach
Smooth the mounds of tousled sand
Melting tensions like summer snow in dreamland

In another world….

In another world…. far from here
I am free to be as blithe
As a coconut tree
Swaying softly in a warm cool breeze.

Walking on the Road Today

Walking on the road
Today
I saw
the sun
reflect its rays
off a shard of crystal glass
and how a sudden breeze changed direction
for a tiny blade of grass;
standing in awe -
I soaked in the warmth
of this sun filled day.

Walking on the Road Today

Walking on the road today
I heard a bird sing
over brightly tinted
tulips adorning the walk
all in bloom
speaking clearly
to my heart
on this cheery day
with all that I saw -
I felt a subtle change
that only this spring day
could bring.
