A Calm Gaze

on

As far as my gaze takes me
There is an expanse of calmness

The warmth of the setting sun
The ripples in pristine water
The chirping sounds of happy birds
The shade of lush green trees

As far as my gaze takes me
There is an expanse of calmness
And yet, I feel a storm approaching

Darkness is about to set in
Waves are beginning to get rough
Chirping has turned into cacophony
Shady trees are swaying away in the wind

As far as my gaze takes me
There is an expanse of calmness
That is vanishing as I pen thisโ€ฆ

  2. SMiLes Dear Yamini So Nice to Hear Your Poetry Again on WordPress
    Been So Long Looking Back to November 2020 As It’s True Some of the
    Poetry FRiEnDS i’ve Met ALong the ‘Pandemic Era’ of Expressing Creativity

    on WordPress
    Didn’t Make to
    The ‘Other Side’
    SMiLes Glad You Did
    Hope to Hear More of Your

    Poetry and What i Love Most about

    Your Poetry Is it expresses Both Unrequited
    Life and Love So Common A Quandary in College
    Ages And What Is Expanding More in Stress As Work Ages too…

    So Far Removed We May Travel From What Feels Like Flesh and Blood
    Soul Within For Real As It’s True Inhaling Peace Exhaling LoVE iN A Golden
    Age For Real Now Yet in my Early 20’s Taking Statistics in College Perhaps
    Readying Myself to Make Lots of Money in a Business Degree or Such as

    What my Paternal Side of the Family Insisted Was my Worth in Smarts
    of Money Making Potential Yet What i Wanted to Keep And Nourish then
    And Grow is the ART ParT of SMart As Honestly S And M And H And E
    Minus Art in heART True is Just Not Much of A Life With Colors That Yes

    Make Life
    Worth Loving
    At All So i Broke
    Down Quit For 3 Months
    Went Back And Triple Majored
    in 3 Degrees i Enjoyed that Surely
    Wouldn’t Make me Much Money Then

    And i Sought A Job More People Oriented
    Than Things Oriented And Grew my Human Colors
    More Yet Financial Responsibilities of Life are a Reality
    Eventually i Became An Information Technology Guy and
    Financial Management Guy to Make it Through the Golden
    Handcuffs of Retirement And that Almost Killed me Yet Indeed

    Eventually i
    ReTired to
    A Place of
    Heaven Within
    Covering Barren Wheels
    As That is an Only Place
    Now to Seek and Find Peace
    And Love New the Lake Just
    Shimmering in Twilight that Never Goes Away

    i Encourage You to Always Keep in Touch With Your
    Creativity i had a bit at age 13 and 18 Lost it and it took
    me All the Way on the Other Side of Hell at ages 47 to 53
    to Seek and Find it Again And It Hasn’t Left for 9 Years Now

    Reaching 62 As It’s True THere is No Age in Heaven Yet Love For All
    When DarK is Seen As Gift And LiGHT Surely Becomes The Overall Reward

    With
    SMiLes…

    Yeah in College
    Ages i Remember
    Driving on the Interstate
    Feeling Briefly Naked Enough
    Whole Complete Just for a few
    Seconds then Now it is Forever Real..:)
