Lightning strikes —
illuminating the sky,
a moment of clarity
in the mind's eye.

Electricity running
deep within,
thoughts swerving
into a tailspin.

The storm brewing,
a fight well-fed,
once and for all
angry thoughts put to bed.

Darkness dissolved
just one moment more,
remembering a lost love
from days of yore…

The clock strikes twelve.

Midnight…

The sands of time have run out. Resting peacefully at the bottom of the hourglass.

The silence is deafening as the last gasp is taken.

A life cut short too soon.

The survival of a woman and her children left in disarray.

The ground flecked…

Colors of Fall
scattered everywhere,
a crisp feeling
knifing through the air.

Summer lingered
just too long,
the next season
hustling in headstrong.

Cooler days
are upon us,
the darkness
is superfluous.

Smoke billowing
from houses here and there,
bright, crackling fires
warming the nighttime air.

A perfect time
to settle…

A picture-perfect sky
framing the bright,
shining sun between
whisps of light clouds.

The early morning dew
glistening on the tips
of leaves and grass.

A low hanging fog
burning off the mountains
as the temperatures rise
and a new day begins.

A landscape —
as beautiful as you.

A single flower
sitting in the sunlight,
taking in its surroundings.

Replenishing energy,
awash with bright color
as the flower stands
on its own.

A calm vitality
as life radiates
from this unlikely
of places.

A smile —
and heartfelt joy
produced from a symbol
of love and care.
