The moon trembles with your wing beats.
Do not let the wolves whittle lies
into your hallowed bones, for you
were never miniscule. You are
centimeters contorting into meters,
minute millimeters morphing
into a colossal kilometer.
Your shadow prowls the hunting grounds,
but you are no killer. Kind hearted
birds are more than powerless prey.
Loveliest Lark, surround yourself
with temperate touches and
weave wonder into those you come across.
And while white fireflies blink
in their lighthouse language,
know that there is hope slung
beneath your fluttering feathers.
TimeWe live by itTime3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
The infinite lives in it, nothing can stop him
We are like slaves who live only for the happiness of the Lord
We can not escape reality, we live and die by it
Every second is a second lost less in our lives
Every little moment is golden because it is a moment that does not return
Time is a cruel master, immortal and infinite
This killing us every moment
You can not escape us, not in the choice
We are obliged to live knowing that we only have a future
And that makes it worth life
The only certainty we have is the only reason that life itself
For without this, that grace existed in living
We would be world time for nothing
We'd live like fools and idiots who do nothing to be remembered
Who do nothing for recognition

Thanksgiving TimeIt is autumn now and cold winds whistle.Thanksgiving Time3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
The leaves on the trees are already coloured.
Soon, summer dreams walk in November gowns
And veils of mist cover meadow land.
At night, a host of stars looks down on tired souls.
They sparkle brightly in the dark clouded sky.
When sun rays steal the daybreak,
Often frost will already come along with them.
The cornfield in the valley is already cut.
It was transformed into gold by autumn's hand.
Then, when winter strides through the vast land,
He will pay the time with his white tribute.
Now, the harvest in the gardens is fully ripe.
Its seeds were already sown in March
And God's hands quietly nurtured the steady growth,
Early in the morning through to the late evening.
The dark cellar will be filled with many things:
Vegetables, fruit, potatoes - big and small.
When mother's caring hands fill empty plates,
We will be grateful for these gifts we have.
How wonderful sheltered with good grace
Is the great world in the change of time!
And when we wa
Oh the Snow.What is that I see in the distance?Oh the Snow.4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
A white barren plain of glistening snow.
The flakes flutter to the ground outside
then they blow past in a gust of wind
Now I wonder, why is there snow there,
but not here?
The plain is a gradient
starting pure white over there,
but at my feet it is lush green.
What does that mean?
Does it mean anything at all?
Maybe its just me, noticing the little things
Is the snow just heavier over there?
Oh how will I know.
I'm stuck inside to witness the spectacle
that is white, fluffy, crystals of snow.
I wish I were outside to feel it.
Bound Zangoose! What do you do!?Suggested by :iconnathanthelucario:Bound Zangoose! What do you do!?4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
You were walking to an abandoned hotel with some other people there. You were talking to some of them until you heard a muffled scream. The only one who was curious is yourself, so you went where the sound came from.
When you came to the noise, you see a female Zangoose tied up in a spread eagle position. She was gagged with a big ball gag and she was also struggling very madly. You looked around if her captor was there, but didn’t see anyone.
You decide to…
A: Let her go.
B: Let her go with you to your home.
C: Take her as a slave/pet.
D: Have “fun” with her.
E: Tell the others at the hotel.
G: Other stuff you have in your mind.

Not much common sense
Viewed as "lazy"
Messes up words
Talks too fast
Hates relying on others
Hates other people
Pursing a dumb idea
Jumps to conclusions
Does hobbies too much
Hard to talk to
Dislikes doing unnecessary things
Fearful of future
Afraid of other people
Still contemplating imponderables
Doesn't want to live forever

Be alone in peace
Be alone in the woods
Be alone with the night
To escape the traffic
To escape the noise
To escape humanity
I want peace
Is that too much to ask?

Through the hills
Close but always so far
Look to the sky
But all the stars are in the water
And the trees sing
Not crickets, but frogs
Cry "coquí! Coquí!"
Blue streaks, soft claws
Tear mirrors like midnight pearls
A universe born on an oar
Handful of glitter
Stars born, burning bright

The time of happiness
The time of cold
Cold and snow
Snow will fall
Winter is peace
A time of peace on Earth
A time for fun
Winter cheer of peace
For all mankind
A time of giving and love
A time to pray
For those who can not enjoy this time
Have peace and hope
And most of all, happiness
This is the time for celebration

breaking free as a rainbow torrent on the other side.
The rainbow goes through a second prism,
returning to its fair luminous form.
We are the spectrum manifested.
We fell through the prism and became
colored incarnations of the light.
Each connected since the beginning
and until the end.
When our time to leave comes,
we will go through the second prism
and we will return, return to purity.

Hearing his steps.

Stalking the hunter.

Watching his moves.

He clings to his weapon.
as if it could save him
He prays to his gods.

He talks to himself.

He speaks to me.

I end his life quickly.

The hunt has ended.

Concealed HateI don't condone violence, looting or disrespecting police officers but if you don't see that there are problems other than just criminals in America then you are misinformed or in denial. I don't think the riots over the Ferguson case are happening because of one dead person. I think many Americans are tired of seeing injustices being justified for the convenience of not having to acknowledge or deal with problems, other than criminals, in our country. I'm talking about our flawed government, flawed judicial system and the flawed law enforcers who make the good law enforcers look bad to anyone who is not too prideful or fearful to pay attention and speak up. Maybe the riots are the informed people's way of being heard in a silent, government fearing society, full of people who pretend that racism doesn't exist, bad police officers don't exist and that our country doesn't need to be improved.Concealed Hate3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

Sweet Selena Seductive,
This is not a poem, although so many have been addressed to you, smiling and shimmering in the blackened celestial orb above us.
I will not lie, goddess, for never did I love your glowing chariot, the shining lamp that leads mortal men's quivering hearts astray. Nor could I, for knowing thy love to the young dreamer Endymion, longing in his fields for your wonderful touch.
When accursed king Lycaon's kingdom howls at your presence in worship of thee, wild goddess, well, that's when I quake in that damned shack alone.
No lover, nor friend, would ever come to the help of a mad old shepherd at home! No Olympian chariot shall shower the rider's divine blessings upon my freezing heart of stone! I need you not; I never have. Thy dread companion Hecate's nightly phantoms cry, freezing me to the bone.
Sweet Selena Seductive,
this is not an invitation, just a simple protest;
oh never, never visit my home.

the light glistering off the dew in the morning
these hill stretch so far like a welcoming path
a restless sun above shines with all its might
sitting on these hills with the reflection off water
and the dazzling blades of grass briskly moving
with every passing breeze of wind
this is blissful this is a slice of heaven
staring at this vast plane
the true nature of this world
is not as simple as a busy street
or the for every moving industrial giants
for even just once lay in this grass
enjoy this world we call home
listen to the chirps of birds
and the breeze blowing the grass
this is our world this is your home
a giant ball covered in water and dirt
filled with life filled with heat
for the grass is dazzling with the morning dew
let it burn it self into your eyes and memories
and smile since this experience is the world

Summer day, warm breeze on my face
Chance to run the beaches, chance to be alive
Eat s’mores and watch fireworks, embrace the freedom
I don’t want to transition, move to fall
School life, restriction, holding me in
Feel my summer warmth chilled away
As the leaves depart the trees
Fall into winter, bland world of white
So, so, so cold, shivering my nights away &
Shoveling past frustrations to get to my car
Must escape this winter wonder-hell
Leaping into spring
Better, but still not what I seek
Bright and wet, so muddy, so messy
Splashing through puddles with bone-soaked feet
Just give me my summer.
My warm, lovely, bright, sunny summer
One more summer day is all I ask
