POETRY: Unfound Love, Profound Love

Unfound Love, Profound Love

In a land, far away,

A man searches long and wide,

Within the jungle and in the caves,

Seeking out his yet found wife.

 

Day and night thoughts are of her,

Like a shadow that never leaves,

Oh, why is there no cure?

A locked up jail that has no keys!

 

Unfound love,

Profound love,

A desire sent from above.

 

Searching high,

Searching low,

A desire sent from below.

 

In a land, quite near home,

A man searches all alone,

Within his mind and within his soul,

He continues to cherish just one goal.

POETRY: Coastal Cleanse (Heaven on Earth)

Coastal Cleanse (Heaven on Earth)

The beach is full of golden gems,

Sparkling beneath comforting rays,

Whether straight, or if it bends,

It’s caressed by silky waves.

 

The salty air cures troubling thoughts,

Cleanses the soul of all its warts,

Smothers it over, keeps it down,

Dark shadows begin to drown.

 

Take it in and truly consume,

The magic of this private room,

A place that’s shared to an extent,

But, a feeling and vision cannot be lent.
