Daydream Drumbeat
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a bed and mattress tester, a dream job like that of a yellow moon.
I tested the comfort of beds, pillows, etc., for night is ever coming soon.

I studied sleep patterns too, like vivid rainbow's colored, striped design.
I also appraised sleep products, as botanists do royal rose's genetic line.

I rated beds for luxury hotels, and mattresses for their medical benefits;
As grape butterflies keep blooms yielding, with ensuing riotous clematis.

Familiar faces of friends were welcome, in waning shadows of afternoon,

An Open Shut Case
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was an experienced interior designer, whose specialty was outer doors,
Ever opening to amber sunshine, as petals open, when vivid beams pour.

Functionality and beauty were very vital, so I helped customers each day,
To choose materials, colors and styles, like modish spring's latest display.

I adored inspecting the final product, and its impact on the whole house;
As butterflies, greenery and blue skies, incite rapture for motley crowds.

Opaque doors always fascinated me, being portals of frenzy and mystery.

Duino Elegies: The First Elegy
by Rainer Maria Rilke

Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angels'
hierarchies? and even if one of them suddenly
pressed me against his heart, I would perish
in the embrace of his stronger existence.
For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are barely able to endure and are awed
because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
Each single angel is terrifying.
And so I force myself, swallow and hold back
the surging call of my dark sobbing.

A Fragrant Bed
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

asleep in a bloom
on the lake of pearl moonbeams
water lily dreams

green frog in black night
drifting in rock-a-bye dark
where stars make their mark

moonlight tiptoes soft
on cool petals of the pink

The Hills
by Stanley Chepaitis

I was looking into the hills,
tracing out the sadness in their ancient contours,
as they watch the madness of this chattering world
with silent, hidden eyes.

I was listening to the hills,
straining to hear their silence
over the noises of traffic in the valley,
hoping, if I could,
that it might tell me of their sadness.

The Silent Giant
by Saleh Ben Saleh

O I have yet seen a giant so great reveal its natural beauty,
with pride above all surroundings it stands, constant but fairly moody.

Its eyes from high above they watch but not a word they speak.
Snow covered tops in spring shall thaw flooding the lengthy creek.

Rising above the clouds gloriously standing tall,
its rocky skin wears many colours in spring, winter and fall.

Its surface bares scars of time and trails of a thousand charts.

Love is Blind
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a marvelous ophthalmologist, impacting how others saw this world,
As tomorrow one day sees yesterday, on lanes where hued leaves swirled.

I corrected hazy, crazy vision problems, with eyeglasses and with surgery;
Like a second look, evoked by raspberry rose, to verify beauty's certainty.

I also did frequent research, on hidden causes and cures for eye disease;
Just as reasons for rainbows and stardust, lay hidden in nature mysteries.

I had once studied cosmetology, and I loved the art of applying makeup;

Alone on the Seashore
by Saleh Ben Saleh

On a rocky shore she sits alone under the darken skies, a flock of gulls glided away in search of food supplies.

She stares ahead in time to see the sun before the rise. She was amazed to see its rays tickling the pinky skies.

The foamy waves moved to and fro caressing the rocky shores, the hidden tides away they drew, brushing the sandy floors.

The morning breeze flowed away tousling her tidy hair, fondling her rosy cheeks with all the love and care.

Along the coast the bush did grow between the grass and tree, to all the bears a place of nest for every honey bee.
