God’s Blank Canvas…
Life and the dreamscape of time keep our
Days worthwhile, and our night awe-inspiring.
Ginger sunsets toward the dazzling stars that
Takes flight. When God pulled out his blank
Canvas, he painted a magnificent world without
Complaining or tiring.
Emerald mountains snow covered white, a cobalt
Sky, many worlds that reach to the Heavens, he
Questioned his creation, neither did the Angels ask
Everything under the Heaven’s once as pure as a
New winter’s snow has become cloudy the earth is
Losing its glow. When thinking of the dreamscape of
Time we must remember, all that we see is not yours
It is God’s work on this earthly canvas, will his work
Endure time, we must keep her healthy because this
Earth is not yours or mine.

Where does a love that has died go; does it slip away slowly like summers fading rose, did it die peacefully just go to sleep; did anyone weep?
Was it created in Heaven, sweet and fair, like the blue sea, sandy beaches and salty air?
When the once quivering bodies are stilled and no longer able to keep each other warm; was the parting sad, were sorrowful screams heard over the darkening skies and midnight storm.
In the dead of night do the souls fly away, do the Heavens cry when love dies?
When hope leaves do lovers mourn, smiles vanish, and do lovers weep endless days.
The journey in love, a sparkling path touched by the sun’s rays, they loved deeply together, and love was home.
When love fades away fear and doubts make a lonely bed; are the rains tears for a lost love that the Heavens have shed?
I hear the echoing of my soul as it fills with despair,
looming before me are shades of black and grays; I
desperately try to climb to the surface of tomorrow to
face my sorrow.
I wake to the day that I have come to dread, it is cloudy;
I could not take this day if the sun were shining and warm
southern breezes caress my face.
The meadow is misty, the creek sparkles as the ripples rush
toward the lake; a fox watches me from behind the tall grass
a hawk screeches above.
Wild flowers bloom where ashes were scattered only a few
years ago; I am mesmerized as a group of dragonflies rise
from the blossoms spiraling toward the Heavens.
The water is cold, the bottom of the creek is soft and broken
branches tug at my ankles holding me beneath the surface; the
current becomes swift and nudges me forward, I will not have to
face another tomorrow.
God did not mean for us to be alone, the
days seem longer than grains of sand by
the sea; nights longer than stars in the
Heavens when the opposite side of the bed
is cold next me.
Tears flow, laughter’s slow; no one there to
challenge the spirit to live with a certain blazing
flare; the joys are now beyond reach, floating
far beyond the nearby reefs.
The truth burns brighter, the earth is no longer
at its best, friends are few; relief comes when the
sun is absorbed by the deep waters to the west.
When one’s eyes are closed and reach for that
invisible hand, speaking softly where only one
can hear; finally fading eyes close, it is only
tomorrow that one fears.
