Something I wrote in a cheap motel in Nashville.

Three Paths In A Meadow


Three paths of a dancing wildflower meadow

One path known others on dissimilar mysteries.

  Signs posted give warning to new adventures

But beware of reality’s tricks perceived as real.


The well worn path is woven full of love

Nurtured from infancy into a Garden of Eden

Protected womb of sorts in germinating ideas,

Cradle upon a mind on natural verse delights.


Wildflowers sprout with cocoon pods incubators,

Where under a midnight moon they open up

Releasing the fluorescence in butterfly delicate

Winds breezing amid complacent tranquility.


Here a poet sketches among songbird quill voices

Quivering in the night chill of feathering love.

Canvas of silken words weaving penmanship

Sailing stars into universal peace of vibrating earth.


Black velvet backdrops hearing melody’s HeArt

Refrains singing silent joining with harmony’s Beats

Every living thing breathing among divine beauty

Fresh air perfumed fragrances on hypnotic senses.


Close your eyes inside your mind set so free,

Where it glides upon this universe of silken words

That one can reside here on one permanent high.

But Poetry is about living roller coasters of emotions.


So one challenges different paths among doubts

Where sorrows build depth of terrains happiness

Upon scars with thorns planting vivid rose gardens

Pain in birth struggling to give live its beginning paths.


So one looks down this dark path with gloomy shadows

With this distant light of potential among its horizon

Another draught bare bleached bright sunlight white

Grains in sandstone sculptured upon approaching storms.  


So open your eyes,

Which eye did you choose?

For upon opening our eyes,

We have so many possibilities

And only one way to travel.

De-Terminated poet, somewhere in America

Today is what we all live for
Today I want excitement and joy
Except I find I am bored to death
And life holds no appeal at all.
Can I request to die early?
Can I end the struggle to find a life?
I do not want to go on like this anymore
I prefer to let my life play itself out
I guess the only way is to quit supporting
The kernel of life inside my body
This says it all.................................Sandi
