Beach Sunrise

Revitalize

free form, free verse, Mindfulness, Nature

Possibilities;
the sunrise is a blessing.
Glittering rays kiss my face,
the possibilities of a new day;
An awakening

Thankful for this moment,
a peaceful calm only nature can offer
Soothing sounds of waves rolling onto the shore,
Set intentions
Oh, the difference each day makes

A new liberation
as the sun warms all in its wake
Arousing a joy so pure, so stimulating,
Because it comes from within;
be true to yourself and find peace,
calm the internal stirrings

Double Rainbow Citi Field

Phenomenal Beauty

free verse, freeform, Nature, NYC, poetry

A rainbow,
so seemingly simple, yet complex
A beautiful display of science above us,
a natural work of art

Sun rays, water droplets, light refraction, reflection
Standing proudly,
stretching yonder for all to see
Radiant, amazing in its own right

In ideal conditions, a double rainbow is visible
A spectacular sight becomes magnified;
The rainbows complement each other’s beauty,
a phenomenon to behold
appreciate the uniqueness each one brings to the whole

Nostalgia

free verse, poetry

Summer reminds me of my youth;
chasing fireflies,
being fearless,
picking up insects,
turning over rocks,
playing in the dirt
Blissfully ignorant

Ocean water dances on my body,
heat radiates off the concrete,
jungle gyms and sprinklers are my best friends

Time flies and I’m awash with nostalgia
I’ve lived a life already
childhood seems so far removed
Resurrect the inner child

Oh, and there were days –
longing to be one of the grown-ups –
what a trivial pursuit

Now I’ve reached adulthood;
thoughts consumed by new longings
to a simpler time
How do I feed and nourish the girl I once was,
the girl who still lives.
