I listen to the breeze
imploring me to seize the chance
and join in Nature's dance
upon the broad expanse of green,
where deer and geese convene
in harmony between the hills
among the daffodils
with music from the milling bees.

Water lilies bloom
and calm a troubled pilgrim,
who wandered on scene
as they rest on quiet pond
away from the bustling crowd.

Those vibrant blossoms
resurrect a sense of worth,
so he can go on.

Exploration

The purpose of this exhortation
is to make all you writers aware
of benefits derived from exploration
beyond the realm of factual affair.

Just follow your Muse to Inspiration Station,
where one can see pixies dance in a stream,
or details of a future revelation,
caught in the camera of a dream.

Asian koel sings a striking melody--
lovely lilt lingering
beneath the sprawling mango tree.

The song drifts down to folks below,
coo-coo-cooing, calming,
as sunset provides a vibrant glow.

Both West Point cadet
and crafty old vet
commit

to meet ev'ry threat
without any fret.
No quit!

We are in their debt
and shall not forget
their grit.

cold penetrates beneath the layers of clothing
freezing, awful, gripping, winter
bulbous nose is clogged by curds of snot
running, salty, sniffling, February
licking mucus from frozen upper lip
shivering, nasty, flowing, constant
spitting out gurgling wads of phlegm
hacking, coughing, sneezing, incessant

Just being there among the daffodils
is better than a bottle full of pills
to remedy the worst of all my ills
and restore my faith in the field of dreams--
those dreams which take me to another place
away from commerce race with hectic pace,
just soaking up the best of Nature's grace,
while listening to songs of mountain streams.

twilight solitude
when work is done farm exudes
barnyard ambrosia

The new year came in with a loud thud,
as we slammed the door on twenty-twenty,
which gave us nothing but a flood of crud:
riots,
wildfires,
hurricanes,
pandemic,

and then there was the party,
where I tried to drown all my sorrows.

After a while,
I felt the need to relieve myself
and stumbled toward the lavatory door,
but I was sadly mistaken,
because,
come daylight,
I awoke
in a glistening pile
of yellow snow.

I joined the Navy to escape
chaos on streets of Anaheim
and found a band of kindred souls
on watch in steamy engine room
enroute to our next assignment.

That call to duty provided
the glue to bind our brotherhood.
