You Are The MoonThere's beauty in that thickening dusk;You Are The Moon2 days ago in Free Verse
Maturing sun that burns the horizon
With brutal truth and honesty.
Unlike the silver sun that
Blurs the darkness like a chandelier,
So natural in its sterling glow,
But deceitful and dishonest.
Its beautiful lies shattered over lakes,
And washed away to the vast, stormy sea;
A skewed pinprick of light, like a burning candle
Amongst a hundred angry waves.
But your light is natural.
Unlike synthetic bulbs,
Electric lies inside glass globes,
Or manipulative candle light
To illuminate a shining soul.
You are the moon.
An ancient weight of stone,
Resistant to gravity
And observant of the raging

ein plätschernder Bach.
Beruhigend, gleichmäßig, harmonisch.
Die Grashalme wiegen leicht
in der auffrischenden doch sanften Brise.
Vögel zwitschern über mir
in den Kronen der Bäume
die dank des Windes ständig in Bewegung sind
und doch für immer stillstehen.
Die Äste voll grünem Moos,
dahinter der wolkenlos leuchtend
Im Gras, letzte, tapfer blühende
Blumen; lila, rostrot und weiß.
Hier und dort gefallene Blätter,
jetzt Laub im Gras.
Braun, einstmals grün,

Twenty seven paces
From the hill,
As it cuts across the horizon.
A gust of feathers
Leaving only a sound of quiet
It clings to the purple leaves,
Rolls down branches,
To float over
Brushing over knees
Whispering in ears,

Untitledsoaked in the blood of the innocentUntitled2 days ago in Free Verse
driven only by mad hunger for flesh
isolated to the point of insanity
bloodshot eyes that pierce even the most feared creatures with burning despair
it stalks its prey with such crafty tactics
its nature is of an obsessive one that led by instinct tracks the soon to be prey down
this is one creature no one will see until it is too late
Fog in PennsylvaniaFall's first blushFog in Pennsylvania2 days ago in Free Verse
Hushed in fog
Helps the weary soul forget...
Yellows, orange, rotting fire--
Pepper the ranks of still-green sentinels.
Hills stand still
As I roll through
On noisy wheels
And take my fill
Of one more passing eternity.

but larger than the wind.
And as if to confirm this,
an eruption of feathers
glows in the light of the moon.
The mouse is caught,
midst fallen leaves,
midst a fall breeze.
But if there ever were a night...
The owl is gone from sight now.
My fire burns low,
the embers swoon
with each cool exhalation.
And I, too,
move ever so carefully,
knowing the owl
watches me too.

-Dry Rivers-Large paws sink-Dry Rivers-2 days ago in Free Verse
Deep into frozen mists
Kicking up trails behind them
Leaving fissures like dry rivers
Tiny white flakes glimmer
Reflecting the fading light
Landing lightly on tree trunks
On fallen branches that protrude
Puffs of steam trail as he careens
Floating east with the breeze
Up into dormant branches
Eyes fixed, his feet predict
He sways with every step
Head bobbing and weaving
Twisting through Evergreens
His heart burns with a primal fire
Nipping at the heels of his prey
Waiting for just one mistake
Growls are heard in the wood
From his mouth only breath
Hunger runs through him
Through every vein
He was thrown from his home
Furry fuels his need for warmth
Unstoppable after long winters
This brutal fundamental sin
The Wolf claims his prey
Too ravenous to give quarter
Power with every bite
Every tear of fresh flesh
Steam rises from the flowing blood
As it drips into dry rivers

diving into the wire, clutching them like the branches they used to stand on
almost falling but they catch themselves
on the wire with their chipped talons.
it's winter - the empty wind
rushes through their feathers, like thieves
running through the streets
pillaging any ounce of warmth they can find.
there's no time to segregate here
the tawny sparrows roost with the radiant cardinals,
the tired robins tremble beside the little wrens,
they all have snowflakes
clinging to their downy coats.
they sigh, strung on the powerlines
like obsidian beads on a spider string
their wayworn wings struggle to beat any further
and their hearts click like reluctant clocks
the gears starting to misalign
their feathers wilt in the alabaster breeze,
their eyes look to the crystal sun
and their minds dream of earthworms and
the summer soil between their young toes.
they wish for their nests again,
the cups of straw and nectar and stems
that once held so much life
Common ShadowAlways by your side,Common Shadow3 days ago in Free Verse
For every step you take
I will be right there with you
This bond we cannot break
When you are frightened,
With fear I will be struck as well
Though your emotions are evident,
For me you can scarcely tell
How it is that I have come to feel
About our forced arrangement
While you gain all the benefits,
It is I who must suffer estrangement
All it is that I can ever do
Is waltz about right after you
As you enjoy a delectable treat
Unable am I to taste the sweet
Watching, weary, wondering
Yes wondering as I begin mumbling
If I deserved such a fate
Shall I always be your mate?
Forced forever in our crude dance?
Will I never once have a chance
To spin and twirl in my own play?
Oh, how I wish for that day
