December Inspiring

December 
Is inspiring, 
Not because 
Of the winter holidays, 
But because 
It is my birth month. 

Memories 
of December's past 
Always encourage 
Poems and prose.

Dandelion

Love is a dandelion, 
Planting itself in your mind, 
A clever dandy lion, 
Manufacturing your goal.

Late Autumn Dawn

Dawns light 
Penetrates my retinas 
Burns holes in my brain 
And releases the pressure that demands 
Another hour of sleep

Love defined on the Second Sunday in December 2017

The dawn of a new day, 
Rising rosy over hills of gray. 

God's eternal light, 
Giving hope through the darkest night. 

The generating impulse that began creation, 
And set the universe in motion.

Spirituality

Soul's mirror reflects, 
Polished by tests and difficulties, 
Illumination 
Reaching it from the divine realm - 
In adversity, give thanks: 
Thankfulness, appreciation for 
Uncountable blessings showered 
At all times and under all conditions 
Light the spirit with love's rainbow - 
In prosperity, philanthropy: 
The blessings that we give away 
Yield roses in paradise.

Meditation Nooks

Meditation nooks augment desert landscaping: 
Mexican blue fan palms line hidden walks, 
White flowered Yucca peek over shorter fans, 
White blooming green bottlebrush 
Spill onto curved garden paths, 
A green Fortnight Lily guards concealed ponds, 
While soft leaved Asparague Fern caresses the stone. 

Tranquility echoes 
The silence of meditation, 
As a new day begins.

Desert Sunset

The desert sunset highlights 
Tantalizing cactus gardens growing 
Agave, prickly pear, 
San Pedro, flat leafed Indian Fig Cactus. 
And rosemary. 

Sol's evening rays play 
In backyard gardens: 
Kissing Bougainvillea blooms. 
Transforming deep green Cannas leaves 
Into emerald images of mystery, 
Caressing Canary Island Palms, 
And variegated American Agave.
