Now That You're Free

Updated on January 17, 2011

The tides of the ocean

sing with the breeze

sing to the sands

under towering trees.


Like a flower that opens

under the sun

this is the moment

your life has begun.


The warmth of the sunshine

covers your skin

melting the shell

covered in sin.


Like a flower that opens

under the sun

this is the moment

your life has begun.


The peace you are feeling

the peace that you need

waits here to greet you

now that you're free.


Like storm clouds that open

to blue skies from rain

so is this moment

that steals pleasure from pain.


Like a flower that opens

under the sun

this is the moment

your life has begun.

      Thanks for the read and comments Rob & Rasta. I've been on a poetry run lately. I've wanted to write something funny instead but I guess maybe next week now on that. At least they are quick reads. :-)

      This makes me long for a warm, summer day. All we've got here now is snow.

      Sign me up. I'll have a mint julep and key lime pie and oh, can you have some of those Jamaican drummers? I like this JB, it transports and speaks of forgiveness. We could all use some of that. =:)
