In the quiet of the night,
Lulling me to sleep
With its gentle ebb and flow.

4. “The Olive Tree”
Set deep in the earth, so long and strong,
The olive tree stands where it belongs,
A symbol of peace, a gift from above,
Guardian of the land, nurtured with love.
The waves crash against the shore,
A rhythm that never ends.
It’s a dance between the ocean and land,
As the sea gives and takes again.
The salty breeze carries away my thoughts,
As my mind finds peace with the tide.
I stand in awe of the vastness before me,
And the beauty that the ocean provides.
I let my worries drift away,
With the ebb and flow of the sea.
For in this moment of ocean’s embrace,
I feel truly free.
Seasons of Love
In the golden days of autumn,
As the leaves paint the ground in gold,
I’m reminded of moments we’ve shared,
And memories that will never grow old.
In the cold and wintry nights,
As the snowflakes fall from the sky,
I feel your warmth and love,
As we huddle close by the fire.
As spring blossoms in all its glory,
And the world awakens anew,
I’m reminded of the love we share,
And the renewals that come with it too.
As summer heats up the earth,
And the sun shines down on our skin,
I’m grateful for the love we have,
And the warmth that burns within.
Whispers of the Wind
The wind whispers secrets to me,
As it dances through my hair.
It shares the stories of the land,
And the secrets that it holds there.
It speaks to me of ancient times,
When the world was wild and free,
Of the spirits that guide us still,
And the magic they weave endlessly.
The wind carries the melodies of life,
As it whispers gently in my ear.
It speaks of love, of loss, of hope,
And the strength that we can find here.
So listen closely to the whispers of the wind,
And the secrets that it shares.
For in its gentle embrace we find
The answers to our deepest prayers.
In times long past, in ancient Greece,
A tale was told of a mighty feast,
Of a warrior king, wise and strong,
Whose journey home was filled with wrong.
This king, Odysseus was his name,
Famed for his wit and valiant fame,
Went off to war in a distant land,
Leaving behind his wife and band.
Years went by, and the war was won,
But his journey home had just begun,
For gods and men, both kind and cruel,
Would challenge him as if in duel.
The journey starts with a stormy sea,
Waves crashing hard upon his lee,
He fights to survive, to stay alive,
And bring his crew back to the light.
On an island where beauty lives,
Sirens sing, tempting all to give,
Odysseus cleverly hears their song,
Securing his men, they move along.
Next comes the island of the Cyclops,
One-eyed giants with massive chops,
He blinds the monster and outruns his crew,
But offends the god who seeks revenge anew.
Flaming arrows and howling winds,
Charybdis and Scylla rends,
Odysseus perseveres, still strong,
Leading his men to where they belong.
They land on Circe’s magical shore,
A sorceress who enchants the core,
She turns his men into swine,
But he turns the table on this female divine.
Calypso’s island, where time stops,
Odysseus stays for seven years, crops,
Glorious crew and a beautiful maid,
He longs for home but the island bade.
Finally free, he finds his way,
To Ithaca – of his wife in dismay,
Suitors have come, his lands to claim,
And his wife he needs to reclaim.
Odysseus, disguised, plans his play,
Telemachus, his son, his ally in fray,
One by one, he strikes them down,
Reclaiming what is his own crown.
The Odyssey, a story of might,
Of a man who challenged the plight,
Braving gods and monsters alike,
On a journey home, a lifetime in sight.
