through the soil,
that lifeless liquid
that gives everything life,
it's a strange paradox.
How can life come of no life?
How can life come
of what seems dead?
Everything that lives
must one day die,
and life is a cycle,
a circle without beginning
so if life gives rise to death,
death must give rise to life.

We never die -
Allow the soul
To last n' reside.
For days twinkle
As skies near pink,
And rest can be ours
As the blood moon

Out there among the sea of souls,
Yours is a great and happy life as yet untold.
A future being not yet made nor crafted,
No life skills, nor judgement yet mastered.
I am a young man wishing to be your father with great haste,
Dreaming of you little miracle,
And when time permits us,
Our first embrace.
My gentle girl.
My humble warrior.
Life shall beckon you one day,
And you shall answer.
Then at last your story will unravel,
As you grow and learn
Wander and travel.
The whole Earth is your home
Wherever you may be,
Make mistakes and rectify them
And in doing so,
Eventually I will leave you here,
But you're never on your own
Find my smile in every rush of wind,
My love for you
Daughter you are great
From your first breath until your last,
You are cradled in my care.

I like to hear the
crunching below my feet
I hesitate to rake the leaves and
I would rather stare at them all day
As they fall down from the trees
walks away, which disappoints me
to give us beautiful snowflakes
and let us make snow angels
on the hills of snow
Autumn, please don't leave yet
Stay a little longer

The depth of wine bottles,
Like trees stashing secrets.
Sunrise in an apple orchard,
A nearby market in full flow.
Selling their wares,
Traders shouting in gruff voices,
The taste of dirt or stale
Bread under fingernails.
A barrel of pistachios, still in their shells.
Hands rough like pinecones.
Reaching the glade,
You realise you’re hiding in
A secret garden.

At the might of the earth
She holds such disdain
Towards our shattered idols of marble.
The likeness of the stars
Gifted by the gods
Erected upon her surface,
But intolerant is she.
She shakes so harshly
And spits up her core
Betrayed, she feels,
As we put pale ghosts before her.

You feel me upon your face as you open the window.
A soft breeze,
So delicate to which a flower petal cannot compare.
For that voice you hear in the air so euphonious.
A twist of rage begins my cycle, a force to reckon with.
A cyclone of fury rips across, destruction in my wake.
Calm replaced with chaos, removing everything in sight.
I die down,
Torrential convergence from wild back to mild.

anger of what comes from above,

do these celestial titans
Struggle is nature's way,
to prove supremacy
and that's important
because without supremacy

Power's a strange trap,

And we don't hear lightning,

As if we can only
parrot the actions of others
the way a parrot
repeats, repeats, repeats

my crawling across your windows
enveloping your flowers
and strangling them 'till dead.
I'll write poems on your windshield
in sharp, icy metre
and paint patterns on your patio
in carefully crafted crystal.
I'll nip at your nose
and sink my teeth into your toes;
Your fingers lose all feeling
at the sight of my appearing.
I come silently by night,
but my presence is sure by morning.
You sing my name come the holidays-
Call me 'Jack', though I'm just frosty.

baby blue skies
fluffy white clouds
golden sunshine blessing our faces with warmth
full of dark green grass
that touch the heavens
darker than space
brilliant dots dancing in the sky
a full moon lighting the way
how happy we'd be
Forgotten ThoughtsForgotten Thoughts2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
Deep in darkness
drowning in nothing but my own thoughts.
echoing in the cave walls, water puddles created by dripping water from the earths surface.
No, nothing can change my mind that only loneliness speaks in my mind like the waves of the weak dripping.
What was before is now forgotten, every memory, every thought.
all that I have done is nothing but shadows in others mind, because I do not exist anymore.
my name forgotten, my optics faded, my frame camouflaged in the deepest of the forest, not even the life knows I wonder around on it's own skin.
I live like an shadow, even death forgotten me.
it is me- Thoughts

The ChaseI rest by the fence,The Chase3 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
passing winds chilling my cheeks.
My stillness, matching only the aging wood,
The suns rays piercing clouds.
We wake and work, move and motion.
The winds of nature whistle through the leaves,
Overturned by the winds of change,
The rousing and spitting beasts chug along.
The shadows of people long past, wisp by.
I sit still and hear the birds,
Their squeaks defeated by the roaring metal.
A bug crawls along, the little fella sits a while,
My stillness is all, the quietness of my clouds,
One leaf falls by the wayside, the trees still whistling,
One little bug on one little leaf.
I close my eyes,
and listen to the soundless noises
All the world still moves,
They run and chase, the leaf in the wind.
The eternal chase, a circle of motion.
The winds passes me,
The leafs dancing around me.
Peace and quiet, my little quiet clouds.
With my new-found friends,
A bug, a leaf and an old fence

Thunder rolls and lightning strikes,
turning the night to day.
Looking out into the night I see,
wind in the trees and spinning leaves as they spiral to the ground.
I close my blinds and shut my eyes,
and when the morning comes I thank the sun for coming back again.

Playing with a dead red leaf
So you hold out your hand
The way you greet a strange animal
And it leaps
And you run your fingers through its coat
And you never need to worry
Because the river loves you
Lady Autumnthe leaves have all turned on their branchesLady Autumn3 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
they turn their coats and show their colours
rich and sultry – full of poise
but jaded still for all their wealth
Autumn sings like a wizened woman
with honeyed words that cut through bone
bedecked in Raiments hewn from splendour
she stands in crossroads ripe and ravishing
come to me sweet Lady Autumn
I want to speak at length with you
take me out – we’ll paint the town
so steady as she goes
with our minds laced by the orange and the gold
in cleanest robes we walk along
hand in hand down unkempt footpath
where all the haunted forests grow

it has been warmed by the sun for
lie down and feel the heat against
your back and the ants that begin
to crawl through your dry hair
and read the sky
spread out your arms on the footpath and
into the roiling black heavens
just wait there, wait until they
open upon you
blotting circles pattern around you until the sky and the path are painted the same
but for a smiling rain angel where you lie
sheltering beneath you
and that strong, heady scent of petrichor that surrounds you
everything becomes wet
carbon, concrete, chlorophyll
the tickling ants run for shelter and you
let this all-consuming deluge wash you away
forget the nuances of a crowded, bustling life
money, jobs, responsibilities
for just a few minutes while the warmth fades
you don't need to be afraid
you are a child of the earth
and free your mind
when you are done and drenched

In the early morning
As fresh air seeps in through your window
Having washed the evening's troubles away
Acknowledge the feeling of love
Not burning or seething
But cool and calm and graceful
As I wait for tainted day
Listen to rustling leaves above
Leaving you adoring
Interrupted by car alarms
In the distance far away
Listen to the coo of doves
Before you have to wake up
