But suddenly lightning flashes, thunder crashes.
The whole worlds sleeping, while the midnight sky is weeping.
I close my eyes, praying to the skies.
The storm sings to me, a bitter sweet melody.
Now I drift of into sleep, listening to the sky weep.

basking in the autumn brush to wait out a late morning's dew.
A damp, muted air heavy with November promise
reveals a secret to migrating flocks
and holds the attention of a young colt in the distance.
A maple soft bridge rests soundly between Summer and her lush-warm lover,
Autumn fades into the present.
There is a charm to Autumn the way a hidden lake is charming as you drive quietly past it
When it opens its gentle mouth to yawn in a burst of color you can see old comfortable spaces there between the teeth
It smells like homemade cornbread and there is something nostalgic
about the weird sadness that Autumn brings.
Apples in the field smell so crisp and bright,
bees seem to linger amongst the familiar trees not wanting to rush through this harvest season.
As the weather cultivates its people to the point of black and red checkered sweaters
and warm coffee houses it doesn't forget to look back lovin

across fields of the mind.
As our heads get it the way,
one-way thoughts speed in and out
leaving less than a lingering impression.
The vibratory thoughts of body and intent
find minds with similar pattern
where they share impressions,
similar to smell and taste.
Fields of existence extend without limit.
Thus so, the field of thought
pervades all that is
and reality of a thought cannot be known
until it is observed.
Thoughts are the elementary ripples
in the eternal fabric of space time.
Their nature is to play and dream.
On occasion in an eternity,
they get serious,
condensing into a super field of energy.
It was within this wave field
and by this whelming intent
that thoughts came together
for some sense of permanents.
The expansion of creation soon followed.
Always knowing time is
the ultimate acceleration,
they began to spin.
As these string like wrinkles
within their field of dreams
reached this speed of time
they separate into singularities
The Endless Forestthere was that timeThe Endless Forest1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
during the rain
when giant mushrooms replaced towering birch trees
we were running to that place
at that time
within the protection
of the great hollow oak
we exchanged stories
through sounds and gestures
out there, other stags ran in the rain
seeing as far as the forest goes
inside the hollow tree
the halo between your antlers
was enough for me to see
in the crude darkness
asleep in a ring of mushrooms,
when we woke up
we cast spells on eachother
to see who could turn the other
into the strangest animal
jumping from rocks
exploring old graves
wearing a mask that came from magic
transformations bound to a misty circle
you looked different, too
from one end of the pond to the other
swimming as frogs
out we came, anew as our old selves
talked together at the twin statues
from there we ran
a race is what it is called
we ran in a straight line without stopping for rest
as we ran
we saw those statues again
as it began raining
there were two golden stags

as she shivered in the thick, chilled air.
Her eyes, her soul, intent on capturing that one moment
and stealing it from the broken skies.
Her glass-jar heart bent on never setting the beauty free.
She would seal the lid with each bated breath, and smile.
Static danced with wavering freedom
around the fibers of her mind.
She jumped and reached out into the gaping mouth of the night.
Her fingers wrapped tight around the writhing serpent.
Her gaze scraped flesh from the bones of heaven
as she shivered in the thick, chilled air.
Her glass-jar heart bent on never setting the beauty free.
She laid a palm on her electric chest.
The creature jumped within her.
She smiled and vowed
to never forget.

As dark as can be
With the presence of Luna illuminating my path
And the sight of heavenly bodies
As the gods race across the sky
With their fiery chariots
A beautiful sight
The sound of the night fills the air
Such a beautiful night
It fills me with wonder
It fills me with joy
When I look at the celestial
One can't help but wonder if we are alone
A clear night it is tonight
Orion appears once again
He is within my sight
As well as the rest of the sky
A river of milk as it was once known
An infinite amount of space
Expanding faster than light
Oh the wonders it holds
As I look into the sky
I wonder the same as my ancestors
What secrets do you hold?
What a beautiful night

A throne, regal
But the rings
But guessing age
With no telling to us
For thee cannot
Tell us directly
In the way we are
Taking for granted
But suttle, count
The rings of the earth skyscrapers
Levels closing in
However thou sees
The earthen city
On which we roam
In the light
Breaking 'neath the clouds
To watch them soar
A ring by each passing year
Thee stands on the brink
Of illusion and reality
We cannot see age
We know age is something
But, really, why do we
Count the moments
Flickering by in twilight
To dusk, to night, to dawn
As the sun peeks over the horizon
And we watch
Time does stand
So we may
Appreciate what does come
Each passing day
To take not for granted
The rising sun, it is
For those who take the time
To see what beauty
We come to pass
At the dawn of day
Strands of time
In the daylight sky
As the city rises

My Friend The WindMy friend the Wind is a mystery. She's impetuous and unpredictable. She's can be abrupt, but that's not intentional, I'm sure. She can fly into a rage sometimes, but general she keeps her composure. Like any other element she is often seen at her worst. Hurricanes and tornadoes most often. But if we were to think that way all the time, what's up with that sun? He crosses the sky like he's some gift to mankind, and causes blindness, skin cancer, and over-tan. He's a jerk, but he has his gift to share, light and warmth. The Wind can be found any day, and can be found with the sun, the rain, the clouds, the snow, and the hail. She can be said to be colorless, but that's just because she's fluid. Even the light goes through her. But on occasion, she is perceived in the emotions we carry. Just as the rain, who is famous for grief or catharsis(I guess), acts as a basin of whatever emotion is overwhelming you, the wind can be the conversation with someone not around.

Not a stack of horizontal colors; sand, sea, sky—simple.
Not the gritty edge of our world, pocked with footprints and printed with a corrosive touch.
Not electric-cracked clouds or leaky molten sunsets.
I want to paint the ocean until there's nothing else but ultramarine and indigo and chromium and titanium and cobalt and copper and manganese and lead and every shade in between, churning in an oily turmoil. I want the tide of pigments to rise under the pull of my brush—want it to surge in and overwhelm blank, white canvas beaches. I want to trace the pattern of the sea foam sliding along the surface like atmosphere. I want to release shafts of light lancing through the crushing, weightless depths.
I want to paint a thing of fear and beauty and longing and loneliness.
I want to paint the ocean.

Splashing over me
Features sprouting in your
Deep blue waves
You call me
You watch me go
Back to the human race
I swear to be back
And you wave
When I walk in, you calm down
I flow through you like veins
Quicker than the speed of light
Creating draftes through the sea
With your currents to guide me
When I glide through
I feel empowered and like I’m on
Top of the world but I’m not.
I’m in the middle of the ocean
With a tail.

Es war Gestank und kein Duft
Am liebsten hätt ich mich verkroch'
So stieß ich auf den Kadaver
Und die Maden fraßen und fraßen,

Their branches weaving be my friend
Leafy laughter dance and sway
The trees so kind and gentle say,
“Climb my solid, wind-worn frame,
Give to me a special name,
Whisper to my limbs of old
Worries, fears, and terrors cold
Laugh within my shady boughs
Promise me with solemn vows:
Bring you lover, come and sit
Watch the birds, they fly and flit
When you’re weary come to lean
Against my bark, so rough yet clean
Steady child, no foe to me,
For all are friends unto a tree."

I feel so svelt and sometimes,
When I think of you each night and day,
And when I see you, I see Skittys,
I love you more than words can say...
You're so lovely! This love is swift!
I can't resist your art, it's true!
The roses and crystals fade into shadows...
I am absolutely crazy for you!
Your soul is vibrant; your heart is inspiring,
And my heart is truly in your hands.
I could run and jump 'til life was done,
But YOU are the focus of my plans.
This swift happiness is lovely my love,
And for you, Ace Ice, I thank Heaven above.

in the company of life,
where the skies all fill with water,
drench our aching bones
to nourish greener pastures.
We are alone here
in the company of light,
where providers stroke our shaking hearts,
relaxing roots around our father's holy limbs.
We are alone here
in the company of song,
where pure breathing hum in chorus
to forget our concrete legacy.
We are not wanted here—
the last of us
in the company of peace,
where avenging beauty dances
as the rightful heir regains her throne
and we remain alone.

then I try, like everything I do just hurts

do, or something that I did to help them, and
them never knowing why. I hate that I put them in
some much pain, just because I thought what I was
doing was right, when later I find out is was wrong.
