Poetry ~ Entanglement

~

entangled with the serpent

wrestling with the word

laughter echoes down hallowed halls

where ancient prayers were heard

the prying eyes of science

dissect, study, and observe

secrets of the alchemist

whose magic is obscured

mystics and philosophers

debate the nature of duality

good and evil, shadow and light

dueling perceptions of reality

Einstein’s ‘spooky action’

a quantum entanglement ‘at a distance’

confirms we have much to learn

of the mystery of our existence

Poetry ~ The Highlands

i live in the highlands where the fairies sleep
where moon-falls and sunrises are the time i keep

where the mist rises to greet the day
and the wind whistles as the aspens sway 

three miles up a washboard road 
that climbs through fields where hay is sowed

green rolling hills where leprechauns gather
where life slows down and time don't matter

i live in the highlands where the fairies sleep
where the good life is simple and the simple life is sweet

Poetry ~ A Love Affair

you greet me every morning
and every morning 
you take my breath away 
i can't stop staring at the 
vastness of your artistry 
 i breathe you in 
 inhaling your earthly fragrance 
have i mentioned how bewitching
early Autumn looks on you 
you come alive in a color pallet 
of golden hues as you sway 
with the morning zephyr

i am in love with this land  
brimming with wildflowers, 
meadows, aspen, and pine groves 
even the rocky outcroppings
add allure to the rolling hills

i will spend the rest of my days
writing love letters to you,
my new muse
this magical place I call home
