Slake, with gallons,

            from the lake

of deep tranquility,


find solutions,

            in the mind,

nurture serenity.


Cope with problems,

            amid hope,

despite complexity,


serve our causes,

            driven with verve,

remember levity.


Drink from life

            unto the brink,

too brief mortality,


cast futile fears

            or worries passed,

transform our destiny.


Plan for kindness

            when we can,

Karmic codicil,


not all choices

            need be fraught

nor made against our will.


come back to me

breath on

wingless flight

drift in on breeze

soft focus

for harsh light

suffuse my air


scent the night

cushioned sin

pervade till

all seems right

be still and hear

muse music


return my love

with kindness

ease my plight

pour forth to me


beaming bright

to see you here

tears blur

so heal my sight
