    This is a published poem (a lullaby) that I wrote on a visit to the San Francisco Bay Area, some time ago--a visit that convinced me to move there...


    AS YOU SLEEP

    Slumber gentle princess
    Serenely in your bed.
    Fashion new worlds
    Inside your head.
    Leave this world's concerns
    To those still awake;
    Cloak yourself in visions
    You alone partake.

    Excuse me as I savor
    Each breath you take,
    Floating on the cloud
    Of beauty you create.
    Allow me just one kiss
    Upon your downy cheek
    Before I too surrender
    To my own blissful sleep.

    Come tomorrow morning
    I will see you again my sweet
    And ask you of your sojourn
    In the shadows deep.
    Till then "Good Night" to you
    In your worry-free release;
    Watching you there I know
    There truly can be peace...

    Thanks, latingal! Here's another one for you, written some time ago:

    RESERVOIR

    From the heights of joy,
    Flow the streams of sweet memory.
    From the clouds of precious dreams,
    Fall the raindrops of serenity.
    Collecting in the reservoir
    Of your heart and mind;
    Waters your soul can drink from
    During hard times...
