High Desert MorningA par of quail and their jackbooted young paradeHigh Desert Morning5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
among the rabbit grass and summer-bleached sagebrush
beyond which a tiny garden has this morning
offered up a dozen radishes, six tomatoes,
twelve strawberries, a zucchini, two cucumbers,
a handful of sugar snap peas, six cups of lettuce
and a stewpot of baby spinach leaves.
Stalks of columbine bend in the breeze, cease to become,
a torn rabbit salad strewn across the rocks.
Finches eye the berries. Crows watch from the rooftop.
A lone ladybug straddles the tip of a chive flower.
Then she is gone.

They call it perfection but it’s
Merely the adroit flay of
Things; lend it time and
It’ll all fall apart.

To this with moist eyes,

Sore, withering heart.)

What if humans flew?
What if there were dragons?
What if cats drew wagons?
What if fantastical creatures were real?
What if all seas were teal?
What if clouds were multicolored?
What if a new continent were discovered?
A world made completely brand new
To experience wonders through.

I could hold on to your dream, that
every one you love, are will love will
look at you as a failure. That no matter
how many times I tried I just kept failing.
At as time go on you fine that the world sorry
was just made to put people like us in our place,
to make us feel like we tried, and that was it, like
we gave up, like we never tried. But I want you to know,
that we did fight, that every bruise, cut and scar, on your body
is from the fight that we put up, it show no matter, how much people
looked down at you, no matter how many times sorry came out of there
mouths it shows that we still fought for what we want, and that we're still

I feel so svelt and sometimes,
When I think of you each night and day,
And when I see you, I see Skittys,
I love you more than words can say...
You're so lovely! This love is swift!
I can't resist your art, it's true!
The roses and crystals fade into shadows...
I am absolutely crazy for you!
Your soul is vibrant; your heart is inspiring,
And my heart is truly in your hands.
I could run and jump 'til life was done,
But YOU are the focus of my plans.
This swift happiness is lovely my love,
And for you, Ace Ice, I thank Heaven above.
All my love, Ali x

SuccessionWe are alone hereSuccession2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
in the company of life,
where the skies all fill with water,
drench our aching bones
to nourish greener pastures.
We are alone here
in the company of light,
where providers stroke our shaking hearts,
relaxing roots around our father's holy limbs.
We are alone here
in the company of song,
where pure breathing hum in chorus
to forget our concrete legacy.
We are not wanted here—
the last of us
in the company of peace,
where avenging beauty dances
as the rightful heir regains her throne
and we remain alone.

running in play
hiding under the moon's light
there it will stay
Hunter by day
child by night
as its play is kept
in the moon's sight
Thought of as a monster
but that's an imposter
trying to hide
fear coiled up inside
Sported by a pack
that it sees as a family
with them there's no lack
of true potential
Sons and daughters of the moon
living in the forests
where they can see through its gloom
keeping the balance
The gray wolves of the northern mountains
can be heard every night
calling to the heavens
every word being head by a loving father

Standing straighter than a stick,
Staring and stalking
a Golden god with Thousand eyes,
craving for its blessings
like a new born baby for milk and air.
The cheesy strips by the hungry river,
Have Carved their god's replicas on earth,
that melt down and down
As it burns away to the west and south
Shedding it's blood around
shameful like an innocent murderer, they turn
Waiting for another dozen hours like a night-guard,
to be saved by the perky god,
They are slaughtered by the dark moon till its next birth...

Filling the deep woods with shining laughter,
Her passing form reflected in the water,
Of a silver winding stream;
Tilia, her mother watchful, proud,
Listens to her song's sweet sound,
How it resonates within the ground,
And brings to life her golden dream.

like a flower
knowing only this space
you will soon grow into and
then fall away from one day, too
swaying in the wind but your rooted
firmly to the ground you came from
until your last wilting day
and sometimes life is too short
while other times it's ancient
when just one day is all we need-
and you see the world change
you adapt or you die
but you never separate
from whats buried beneath
the seed you started as
until it can't -
such as a flower

Birth Place of GravityVibrations of thought moves swiftlyBirth Place of Gravity1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Across fields of the mind.
One-way thoughts speed in and out
Leaving less than a lingering impression,
Where thoughts of body and intent
Seek minds with similar pattern
The reality of a thought cannot be known
Until it is observed
And the field of thought is without limit.
It is conscious life
that defines a wave of possibilities
Relevant to our physical and emotional character.
This is the Field Theory of rational understanding.
And it was first within this wave field
where thoughts spun at the speed of light
slowing time to a stand still
that creating the first heavy mass.
Thought begot the matter of emotions
physicist call dark matter of the universe
and by spinning at the speed of light,
this unseen matter begot
all that is physical.

is shrouded in darkness,
so we must fight,
to survive the dark,
The bleak, dying world,
shimmers with black,
until suddenly a rose,
starts to bloom,
The rose is red,
but then it opens,
into a brilliant purple,
it is magnificent,
We must protect,
the one beacon of hope,
that bloomed in the darkness.

She has no limitation
With her inspiration
Among all, she has the best imagination
Within her lives the most amazing nature
Animals depend of her creation
They all live as one
Depending on each other
One of Mother Nature best creation
Is vegetation the one that keeps us a nation
From trees we breathe, from plants we eat
That’s one of life unstoppable routines
Despite Mother Nature causing destruction
With her mighty storms and waves
We keep forgiving her agitation
Because she is our salvation
From our dehydration
That’s why we thank Mother Nature
You are one we can never ignore
That’s why we welcome you from our front door
Saying: “Thank you, Mother Nature”

Colours that blend sublime
Blues and greens and striking reds
I'm lost in space and time
Such beauty inspires dreamers
It's nature at it's best
Art translates natures story
And captures all its glory
My thoughts drift to my little town home
And the foul, polluted air
Smog creates a poisoned dome
Yet, no one seems to care
Planet Earth, a 'jewel in space'
Or so the spacemen said
Saying that now seems out of place
A 'nest befouled' instead
But for now I'll watch the lights
And dream of better things
A future day when again the Earth is right
And harmony takes wing.

And she set out on her way
She didn’t bother with anything that would cover her frame
She didn’t take her husband's cloak or mantle
She didn’t take his name
She accepted the cold falling water
From the sky is came
Her hair and clothes
Fell heavy with their drink
She took on all the water with no shame
For in each tiny drop and new-foundling puddle
She found Her Father in the rain
