the forest shivers
with awareness in the breeze
love powers my dream

just as day turns into night
my memories begin to soar

Swift river runs cold
Falling from tall cliffs of stone
-Cutthroats rise to fly

Tumbling water in my dream
While Great owls just perch and wait

-Clarence Holm

Solitary Dancing – Original Acrylic Artwork By Stuart Glazer

Dazzled and dizzy
I tumbled from the night sky
released from a dream

Mind too clouded to perceive
What heaven revealed to me

-Clarence Holm
