Another-Day-In-ParadiseAnother day in Paradise
But like no other
As dear friends gathered
At a magical place

Against the tide
With Beautiful Everything
To the solitude and beauty…
Of one man’s reef

Sharing the peace
Surrounded by love
No thoughts of the stress
That sometimes consume us”

reality-2Reality is subjective
For we may experience
The exact same moment

We may witness a sunset
In all its glory
Yet the colors we see
Are not the same

We may speak the words
Of a concerned heart
Yet those words may hurt
When only meant to heal

It seems so simple
To merely learn
That what others feel
Requires our respect

And though we may not agree
We must strive to understand
For without that
We cannot move forward”

Hilly RoadA journey just begun
Yet started long ago
A lifetime of travels
Bringing me here

Where our paths have crossed
As we knew they would
Unexpected yet prepared
To embrace its moment

Reality-BirdReality shifts
As quickly as the wind
For what seems real
Is of our own perception

What is surely clear
Is that the beauty we behold
Or the hurdles in our way
Are invisible to others

And who is to judge
And who is to care
What shape or form
Our reality requires

My journey has continued and I realize it is time to begin to write the sequel. The words have been written and they call for my attention.

Ouverture d'un zip sur un ciel bleuNo more hesitation
No more excuses
The light has changed
And it’s time to write

Been holding back
On starting the sequel
Waiting for more responses
To the beginning

But the words are written
Requiring my attention
Needing my arrangement
To play their music

And so we will revisit
That special time
When I found love
And my journey continued

The Beach at Sunset

Stephen Kaufman : April 13, 2015 6:00 pm : SL Kaufman


From “Into My Life Unexpected…Learning To Love Again”

The beach at sunset
Colors of the day
Fading into darkness
Giving time to reflect

The waters calm
Soothing to the soul
As we retreat
To the loneliness of the evening

slkWhen I discarded
The past
And all its hurt
My journey could begin

And forgiveness was essential
For I finally understood that
I needn’t forgive them
But I had to forgive me

We Need to Dance

Stephen Kaufman : March 30, 2015 3:49 pm : SL Kaufman

we-need-to-danceWe don’t need to perfect it
We don’t need to define it
We don’t need to project it
We don’t need to confine it

But when the music plays

ClarityHad been standing still
For too long
And couldn’t see tomorrow
Until now

As a calmness surrounds me
In a world of turmoil
For the sky is not falling
Despite its rumblings

On the water

on-the-waterOn the water at dusk
Marking paths often taken
With Paradise surrounding us
And beckoning us to its shores
