Looking for people, places, and events that are positive and uplifting adds richness, dimension, and color to life.

Excerpt from: Life on a Seesaw Volume III, Circle of Life Trilogy



There's a rainbow 'round mmy shoulder 
   robing me with warmest thoughts
Woven of songs and silences
   'tis a chime of color only my heart can hear

Scattered o'er a lifetime
   following storms of life
   bold arcs of illusion unpredictably appear

With patient eagerness hope penetrates the mist
    to settle on waiting hearts
        then--ever so slowly--filters through

Walk with me through this sky-born gallery
   in the sunlit silence of early morning light
Move with me 'neath the shades and hues
  absorbing the gamut of emotions thy call forth

For too soon, too soon,
   our shawl of muted hues and velvety edges
      will vanish from view
   leaving us breathlessly awaiting its return

A divine atmosphere, written in a style to entice the reader in to a utopian world.
Hopefully it will return.
