Light Music

An amber sunset

Makes bronze the bamboo curtains

Spring sky Robin blue

Dream-seeded crystalline stars

Escorting the opal moon

Reason for Being

You’ve enough to share

Worry not of depletion

Just make the offer

Like the lilies of the field

Giving like they live, freely

Every morning’s light

Offers opportunity

To leave dark behind

And live a brighter today

In love’s appreciation

Get Going

Celebrate this day

As though it has never been

For it never has

And give your joy the power

To rain down like a shower

Thoughts seeking freedom

Nuggets of wisdom within

Share the little gems

Release the remarkable

Energy eager souls chase
