The Guardians

When all alone
They are there
When we are challenged
They are there
When we dance they sing
Spiritual light they bring into 
the coldest, darkest night 
Freeing us from within
They guide us into life and out again 
The guardians

Mindful

Timeless memories
Being a child at play
Remembering a first drawing
A hug of love
Tender touch

First lovers kiss
First child’s cry
First word spoken
First steps taken
An unwritten lullaby

Warm colors
Love of words written
Cool morning dew
Fresh blanket of snow
April flowers

Time of life passing
Smile within
Full life harmony
Contentment of soul
Universal child
One generation 
Called the living
Child within

Stars to travel
In a sleepers dream
The beginning and the end meet
In our final breath
Memories of eternity 
Becoming one again

Battle Within

Sufferance to joy! Struggling yet free
Expressions of hope & despair,Conflicting images
Lost, tears flood my eyes, Not my cheeks, refusal to feel another abyss
Pull,tug,push it all away,Not this instant, Not this hour.
This day I win, by my own command, with the aid of a universal god, 
The battle within now simmers, by sleep I will be again be free, 
Tomorrow yet another day.
Another poem,another painting,waiting to be done, & joy to be had.

A Leap Outside My Comfort Zone
I know the artist
I know the artist I hope to be
I order to do that I need to be willing to step out of my comfort zone
Tonight’s challenge one hour multimedia
This is the results
& at my age———– I don’t have the time to waste
