Fishing

I search, research
Drop anchor and wait with
Baited hook cast to seize the day
There’s action beyond what I can see
Though anxious, I wait patiently for
Opportunity to bite and run
In the struggle, break water and
Reach for the sun.

With dreams alive and vision true
I see a shimmer. I glimpse a view
Tension mounts. To the challenge, I rise
Reeling and reeling, but
I fail to surmise
The catch requires less drag and more line
Fighting, more fighting.
Give it more time

What’s this? A shimmer, I see in the stream
Ripples and more at the surface, my dream
But, down and deeper an unforeseen snag
I must keep control. I tighten the drag
No good. No time. A web-tangled line…
Misfortune dictates, “Cut bait”
Changing my tack, I search and research
Drop anchor and patiently wait... Fishing

I Know An Angel

A cup of café almond mocha
On any given day means
There’s an angel sitting there beside me.

When gentle words make all things right
And balm a wounded soul, I know
An angel’s there to comfort and to guide me.

When I am weak or when I’m strong
Or think I’m right when I am wrong
My angel’s there to love and sometimes chide me.

As dreams are dreamed and trials come
I’ll not face them alone, because
I know an angel walks this earth beside me.

I know my angel walks this earth beside me.

Injustice

The sharpest sight may blind become if
Sense is left behind
When Wisdom's tongue becomes dumb,
No mercy shall we find

Justice too may often peak from
'round her tattered blinders
When scales are tipped, she can't but scream
As freedom slowly binds her

Light of Day

Beauty vane, oh maiden’s bower
Though night be far, still far away
How chance thee fly in early hour
To seek the light of day?

Does not your own bed satisfy?
What crave you more that you should stray
Into the waning light’s supply
To wrest the light of day?

‘Fore twilight’s door you find your place
Though stars unseen, immortal play
They bide their time true to their race
No need for light of day

Oh, lady pure heed not at all
The siren dawn nor noontide’s ray
Heed not the lie that to you, calls
Thy need for light of day

Your beauty grows in darkened bed
Your countenance, of azure fey
As you have to your chambers fled
Do scorn the light of day

We mortals here in shadow 'bide
‘Neath thy mantle’s gloried array
Boon to lover’s, poets and tide
‘Till new, the light of day
