Haiku No. 196: October Sun (3 parts)

sun-on-water2

Sun on the water
Ripples of gold light the day
Blue sky perfection

Warmth in October
Making me happy I’m here.
Barefoot in the sand.

Balmy breezes drift
Across bare shoulders swaying
Music fills the air.

The Gift (A Poem)

sun and moon

Dogs barking,
A plane hums overhead,
Crickets chirping,
The smell of fresh cut grass,
Children laughing,
And screen doors slamming.

And then,
The stillness takes over.
Not even a hint of a breeze,
Not a single dark cloud in the blue.
Momentarily,
Not a sound.

Summer.
A peaceful summer’s eve.
She sits in her sacred place
And listens to the sounds of the earth.
This earth,
This planet.
This body.
This heart.

She’s grateful,
Because, what else is there?
Day and night,
The sun, and the moon.
The breeze and the stillness.
The green trees and the blue sky.
The ocean and the stars.
Life, the gift.
