Trine

My light will never fade away –
it will stand for centuries:
strong, secure, and sentinel.

My heart will never burn out –
the fire in that furnace is fierce
in the face of confrontation.

My body will never remain broken –
for all the knaves that knocked me down,
who thought they knew me on my knees,
could not see the knight in me
who will never give up.

The gift of a new day

I do not know what tomorrow will bring –
every day is a gift to be unwrapped,
every morning another Christmas,
every night another opportunity
to fantasize of gifts to come.

And some mornings when we awaken,
we are greeted by storms,
drama, and misunderstandings.
Other days we rise to see a clear blue sky
extending for miles past the horizon.

Do not fear the coming storms,
the heated emotions, or twisted words.
Do not let the fear of what may be
poison the joy of what could be
waiting on the far side of the horizon.

Tomorrow may be a blessing,
or it could be a curse,
and whether we laugh in the rain,
or weep in the midday sun
is our most important choice –
and the true present of the coming day.

Raindrop rhythm

Falling fingers
striking keys
like a summer shower
that flows in waves.

A raindrop rhythm
that rolls in like the ocean tide,
waxes full in the sky,
and fades to a moonless night.

Breathless silence
yields to eager applause
as another storm rises
in jubilation.

Into that long night

I’ve lived a long time,
I’ve seen many sights
during my lengthy climb
into that long night.

Some days were a delight,
some days were sublime,
and some days were a fright.

I may be past my prime,
but I’ll never quit the fight.
I’ll push past the glory and the grime
into that long night.
