My brothers and I near,
we toast to the hunt with beer!
Our conversation deep.
Who will bag a whitetail deer?

Serenity of the woods is here.
We hear the whistle of silent wind
and feel internal peace.
Colors of the autumn trees supreme.

I receive a wildlife call.
A chickadee's seated on my bill.
A chipmunk's observing near.
A squirrel distracts me from the hunt.

I focus on the view,
hear a cracking sound,
and see a ghostly shadow.
What could it be?

My adrenaline pumps.
My heart thumps.
A silhouette appears..
Could it be a deer?

A tail flickers,
his antlers glitter,
my mind's a-racing, ready for a shot.
Slowly count: 1...2...3...

My fingers release,
body sweating,
both eyes focus on the bead.
Will I strike the beast?

Grieving in a fog...
I have lost my vision,
mind perplexed...
What happen to my thoughts?

Trying to find a place,
a feeling of blissful peace,
and spot to plant new prayers.
I am enchanted by it's development.

A trial to see a sign.
The excitement of new birth,
searching for creative trend,
a path an explorer travels.

The thrill of new discovery,
inspired like a new lover's soul,
trying for a connection
and developing a hidden bond.

My fog starts to clear,
surprised by my imagination.
It reveals I am back on course,
an unending desire for more....

Walk up a trail to discover...
You will cherish this path,
when you see it's beauty.
It will open up your mind,
you are born to be free!

The process of losing everything
is a system of removing the old
to have freedom from the past and
traditions that don't make sense any longer,
so that one allows a new life to ignite.

Light up a new direction for you to believe...
One will value this path to see this light.
It will open a life you were born to be!

You must find yourself,
you must know where you are going
and where you want to be!

With the sky high afternoon sun
and freshly fallen snow,
we ride up a mountain to 7700 feet.
The February winter temperature is chilling!

Sochi glistens with brightly shining rays.
Our gondola ride is a delight.
We see virgin powdered snow,
feel the adrenalin in our smiles.

Stoked, anxious for a descent.
We attempt a downhill rail,
carving through rough terrain.
This slope is better than awesome!

The silence is serene.
Snowboard, triggered snow crystals
in our face, as we race,
refreshes as it sprays.

We are cutting, now,
through tree-lined trails
and accelerating as we go.
Our hearts are pounding against our chests.

We feel an internal body rush,
a climax beyond our control.
The thrill of snowboarding,
now, flowing through our veins.

******************** SNOWFLAKES ********************

We're watching the most beautiful morning snow!
Big fluffy flakes float like a fairytale ballet.
Memories arise of childhood saucer riding, skating,
and skiing in Dad's backyard.

Kid's enjoy unsophisticated basics of life,
sculpturing entertainment structures out of snow.
There is no cost, just heart, spirit, and sweat equity.
We create a carving of snow with Davinci flair.

We generate special moments in time,
celebrate hours of giggling and fun...
a lasting heart-warming experience,
a precious memory to keep!

Suddenly a bright, blazing sunshine
bursts through the falling snow.
I sometimes wish I were still there,
the silent whisper of cold winter air.

When being bombarded by the storms of life,
the stress caused by outsiders or people,
and pressure of the career, keep these
problems out! Bring peace in your life
by keeping good thoughts within. Silence
through meditation and prayer will help.
Listen to your thoughts to bring strength
to your well being.
