Example #1:
destinyís starway*

the stillness of the night 
brings a calm
erasing the sunís illusion...
worry is out of sight
with a psalm
replacing the dayís confusion

looking up to the hills
mists divide
providing celestial parting...
I know if heaven wills
Iíll reside
in holy lands God is charting

how can I wish for more
when day ends
with Luna to guide my starway...
following as before
night descends
while backdropping heavenís highway

*starway: path of stars

Example #2:
winter's passing (Tri-fall)

the morning is greeted
with a song
bringing a message that is clear...
a warble repeated:
ďcome along
enjoy the season, spring is here!Ē
 
the tulips are blooming
as the trees
spruce up in their vibrant green clothes...
lilacs are perfuming
the slight breeze
seeming heaven-sent to the nose
 
feathered friends tell the town
they've arrived
spreading robinís message of cheer...
the dull carpet of brown
is revived
at last gone is the winterís drear
