I think with my feet and allow my mind to wander.
The rapid staccato of knocking on her front door awakens me to her song:
I hear a bird having an exaggerated conversation with itself,
exclaiming monosyllable yellow phrases;
The wind, yearning for her son she lost years ago,
sifts and searches through the leaves;
A high-pitched crescendo accompanies their approach
as the gnats whine about their frivolous matters in my ear;
A lazy brook gliding past rocks touches it’s lips to their sides,
and the sound of a million lovers tenderly kissing fills the air;
The drowsy leaves rising from their winter slumber stretch
their stiff tips, emitting minute pops and creaks.
As time goes by shadows lengthen,
dimming the once vibrant natural hues.
Worry sets in;
The Where Am I?s begin to tumble into my head,
in avalanche of doubt and anxiety.
She can smell the fear like a dog smells raw meat.
The open path becomes tangled and crowded;
My eyes dart left
Blue MoonA rare moon night, a gentle breeze flows like a spring stream, slowly upon the horizon the moon falls past the night sky, slowly swaying to come back upon you another night. For one night, it may be present and yet you wouldn't even know. The moon passes above you as the chapters of your life unfold. Graciously you look behind you, faithfully you look ahead. The moon illustrates a memory, another reason to think it isn't just another night. So the next time you see her above you, why not love her with all your might?Blue Moon10 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This

braid quiet paths so thick along the lichen
falling dusk only colors the breeze
trapped deep in rooted secrets
poetry breathes a rustled song the lost can hear
tossed across winter gardens
blooming stone daffodils

Please hang on to this letter, I have so much to say about you. Where do I begin? Your long, luscious hair is like flaxen fabric. It felt so soft, it's like being wrapped up in silk. You have a windy and bubbly personality, which is why I like being around you. You are always bright, full of new ideas and very cool, which is what makes you, yourself. You can have a bit of a temper, stirring up tornadoes to hurricanes. I know you have a very destructive temper, but that's you. I can't help but get nervous when we are together. You never noticed me, which is why I wrote you this letter. I could never tell you what I like about you, in person,I am always scared or nervous if I tried. Also, your are very free-flowing, meaning everything that is very unique about you. I hope you get this letter because I wish I could tell you how I feel about you in person.
Sincerely, a secret admirer.

But my heart was frenzied from the start. I cant fathom why i was mesmerized by this infuriated beast, or why it was agonizing the way he grimaced before it ran east. I will never forget the way my primly fingers felt through his elborate fur. my fingers trembling, for how long i wasnt sure. His thoughts seemed inconclusive and every move i made was crucial. The consequences of my action could lead to friendship or something brutal.if he decided he could take my hand in redemption, maybe he did love me or maybe he was confused about my intentions.

thundering and booming
and she runs away hurriedly.
Raptly I sit
on my lichen encrusted
throne of rock.
I let the fly land on my head;
the ant crawl over my shoe;
the bee land on my arm.
Slowly, she returns;
First the fleeting, panoramic
symphony of sporadic bird calls;
Next, the ants crawling dutifully
through the pale shriveled leaves;
And at last, the black noses of frogs
poking at the sky, rippling the glassy
water to snatch their prey off of the surface.
The pact was made,
And she repaid.
