Uplifting Poems & Inspirational Poetry

Excerpted from The Elusive Here & Now


Just One Day

The fog lifted
To clear blue sky
A sea of choices
Floating by

The scent of ferns
On a gentle breeze
Conveying a message
Of peace and ease

Water trickling
Through moss covered rocks
Graciously allowing
The soul to detox

Trees stretching to light
With unquestioned resolve
Tranquil and calm
Troubles dissolve

New life springing
From death and decay
Leaving behind
Fear and dismay

Shadows changing
As Earth revolves
Viewpoints shift
The spirit evolves

Butterflies lullabied
By crickets’ song
Aware in the moment
No right, no wrong

The mist settled in
Quieting the abyss
In gratitude
For a day such as this.
