a foreign life glimpsed
I long to be part of the wind
flowing through the trees
rearing up and running full bore
through the northlands
cruising from Dead Horse to Arkhangelsk
rippling the waves of the Bering Strait
wielding the highest diplomatic immunity
to hear the roar of a glacier
as it bulldozes 'midst the heart
of a mountain range
to be that leviathan of ice and boulders
ponderous as time itself
moving irresistibly forward
perhaps I could relish the vista
gazing at the very crown of the earth
as a snowflake on Everest
in delicacy far above the royal diadem
a spark of ice overlooking the brilliant panoply of kingdoms
from Morocco to Los Angeles, Yellowknife to Tierra del Fuego
yet after all is said and done
I would fiercely desire to walk
as tall as the wind

Suffer At The WondermentI am gasping like a fish on a dock;Suffer At The Wonderment2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
it is hard to breathe
when beauty is overwhelming.
There is too much that is wonderful
and I cannot embrace it
or hold it firmly in my hands.
Outside the window
the spring wind shakes the branches
of the Purple Prince on my front lawn,
leaves of green and purple dancing
like so many little blades in the sun.
It only takes a mere glance
to see just how lovely it is,
and I become aware of my heart
thumping in my chest.
If I were to pluck a leaf or a bud,
I would only diminish the beauty,
therefore it must not be disturbed.
And yet I yearn to disturb it,
to have something tangible of this singular moment of awe
and make it eternal.
But the leaf will dry up and wither,
and gradually turn to dust,
its beauty stolen away
by the ravages of oxygen and time.
To try to capture the beauty of flora
when it is at its most healthy and luxuriant,
one only brings autumn and winter
before their reign is to begin.
Therefore I must leave it alone,
and suffer at the won

Dance of the colorsDance of the ColorsDance of the colors2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a swirling mass
The chained dance of the cover
It comes in as one will fold over
Not unlike bright fitting wings
By way of their means to stand up
Face forth and take an edge
Burrow me home
Sever the links
Claiming the soul
Stamping out savory
Heavy is the means
With only a ferris wheel
Debts that hang low are wound about
Before the followings that come
Pits become lost and make no pity
Such is chaos
What could be pity
Such cannot be held
Beauty is the swirl
Color is the mace
Be knocked out by it
Dance of the Colors.
DiaryEvery night, around 11:30, after the ACDiary2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
is off and we've put the fans in the windows,
the smell of crepe myrtles floods the house.
It lasts about an hour, and then it's gone.
The crepe myrtles are indeed in bloom
right now, so it makes sense that I'd
notice their smell, I suppose, but I
haven't a clue why the fragrant intruder
bursts in on schedule and then runs off,
and Google is silent on the matter.
Come to think of it, the tree frogs have been
awfully loud most nights lately. Maybe they
solved my delicious mystery, and now they're
just itching to share their secret.

Sounds Of Thee
by Tricia Pattinson
In the sounds of growing grass
The embrace of an apple tree
Radiance of the Sun in stream
I hear Your path
And nearer Lord of Lords
You cannot be
Closeness as a sound to ear
As the bird song imitates Thee
The day races into hearts
With song and dance celebrates
But You are the song that stirs
And the light that blends rainbows
You are the Great Artist of all that is
Of the shade in need
The Goodly Yawn that seeps the soul
The Hum that calms 'til dawn

From the shadows of night.
You dance in rhythm,
Bobbing up and down,
Before again being found.
O fleeting light,
How I long to behold you,
Within my human sight.

Slide like glaciers
Across the horizon
Over power lines and Folóï,
Below the foliage
Fog up the airways
Above meadows and faux-turf,
On Gaea's breast
Glancing on blades
Along downtrodden asphalt
Exhibiting on flora and bronze,
In their minds

Running against the wind
Stand against the wind
Running up the hill
Get to the top
Silence all around
The suns about to drop
The wind against ones face
The wind is out of place
Drowning out the suns warm glow
Silent as ever we will know
Silent as ever could be
The silence only the wind could show
As the sun sinks low
As only the bush knows
Gone is the sun
That big bright light
Now the sky is lit like fireworks
No longer does the world fight, it...
Caught in the grace of the moment
Gives up light for dark
The cold settles in
The wind picks up
My heavy heart
And makes it soar
The Good And Bad Of SummerSummertime is comingThe Good And Bad Of Summer12 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
To the northern hemisphere
The Sun half north in movement
As in every other year ..
The days are getting longer
Newfoundland's hardly ever dark
Don't even need a flashlight
Walking midnight in the park ..
School is out well almost
Except for make up days
Brought on by snows of Winter
To skip them never pays ..
The balmy days of Springtime
Turn to Summer days of heat
You can keep a little cooler
By wearing flip flops on your feet ..
The beach is calling out your name
Come and make the scene
Protect yourself when going there
Apply a very good sun screen ..
Hydrate yourself by drinking
H2O not alcohol!
Alcohol's not for hydration
Makes you stagger sometimes fall ..
Although we'll try stop them
Try to nip them in the bud
Mosquitoes will return again
Little pests to suck your blood ..
Leave no water standing
It's a place where they will thrive
To make more little babies
Who will eat you up alive ..
I've expounded here a little
Of the good and bad of Summer

buttoned up to the beak,
dancing Satanically to the beat tapped out by excited feet.
The murder hop from one talon to the next
gouging at the polythene chip box,
gorging at the raw-red saveloy inside.
The lookouts challenge me with their eyes,
desiring a scrap for the fresher meat they could sink their teeth into.
But I am eighteen years old and twenty-fold their size
And even death’s harbingers will succumb to me.
I cannot merge with the murder
as they turn tail and scatter.
The erratic bobbing of their skulls preserving the pulse as if nothing else matters.
“Awk.” They croon when I back away and leave them to their processed prize.
The Reaper’s disguise
is almost life-like.

His warm embrace makes me feel comfortable,
His sweet kiss on my lips feeds my heart
He and only him is what I want in my life.
No matter if he is close to me
Or far away from me.
I can feel him anywhere, everywhere
because he has taken one thing of me,
That thing it's my my heart
Wherever I go I feel him next to me,
Step by step.
He's taking care of me!
Now every night when I close my eyes
I imagine a new world with him
This is just the beginning
There might be a lot of slips
But is up to us if we raise up and get stronger than before
Cause this is not for a while It's just for a lifetime
There's no price to stay with him
Every hug that he gives me, I keep it like it was the last.
With every kiss, with every smile, every hug
Reminds me that I'm not alone anymore
He's by my side.
Written especially for M.C

Where each blink captures a moment
Perfection kept forever
The picture slipping from my mouth
To waft to the floor and land at my feet
An aching memory trampled on by harsh boots
I wish my mind was an ocean
Information carried on waves
A current that pulls me gently
As I slowly drown in the world around me
Soaking up the rain and swallowing it down
Allow it to build and flood past my lips
I wish my soul was pure snow
Iridescent in the moonlight
Perfect and clean and beautiful
Until someone mars the surface
Tracking muddy footprints across the cold
Destroying purity and naivety to create gilded hearts
I wish my heart were a smooth river stone
Warm and brushed smooth by the gentle caress
Of water that's aged and safe
Protecting the special treasure that is hard as a diamond
Kept from being worn with time
And thrown about the world, smashed to sand
I wish I were a tree in an ancient land
With roots that stretched deep into history
My children surrounding me

skeletal arms raised high
as they shrug off their summer clothes.
A hint of Jack Frost peeking around the corner.
His arms stretching outward, fingers spread wide

Faint aroma of cocoa rises from my mug.
A pleasant taste of chocolate splashes on my tongue
as warmth and comfort hits my stomach.
I breathe deeply, an earthy smell hitting my nostrils
as my eyes close and a smile appears on my lips.
Autumn has come once again.
As the sun sets earlier and earlier
The air grows ever crisper
and Mother Nature prepares for her sleep once again.

Seattle SunshineRarely do we days like theseSeattle Sunshine1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where the sun heats our cold waters
And warms our pale
Where the air is nearly still
And not laden with sour mildew
And brisk winds.
When we can venture outside in
And white legs
Or bright unbrellas
That usually weigh our bodies.
Days where the clouds dont
Coat the sky
Day were it doesnt rain.
Days where its sunny.
