I see all things on Earth
My eyes, opalescent, glints of white and colour.
I've long since passed
Beyond the veil
Beyond the palest mirror
That Mortality graces with her breath.
To draw faces, lives, and legacies
In the fog left behind.
As the haze fades from view
And all life, too, begins to fade
I watch and wait,
But I will never cease.
The Sun, my right.
The Moon, my left.

Not everything broke is meant to be fix,
will nothing that has been broken so many
time, like a toy a child has dropped some many
times, that it just shattered.

keep on making nothing happen ....till you get there ....take along the way with you ...
till you get you some there .....there are no minutes left here ....to wait on you here ...in case you get back too full of like it was there
may I borrow your consciousness
just for a moment
to open this old memory
I'll pay you back in kind
in my next awake dream
only what the eyes wanted stayed in touch
when their bovine biographies were boiled away
frozen fizz expanded beyond the red plastic
till the blood went brown
somebody up there likes your wee hat
sweet earth fume of a buried time
paper doll legs kick out
hard copies for never wear
quiver at the window
FROM OUT THE
where warm air meets the cold
somebody up there sporting your wee hat for a laugh

Marred by blood
As his pale silent sister
Rises to take his place
Bringing a courtship of stars
Twilight, neither night nor day
The place half forgotten dreams stay.

Hello. I hope you didn't burn this letter. I have a lot to say and please don't put out by the time you are finish. Fire, I am drawn to your auburn appearance, which reminds me of fireworks. Your body spreads its spicy wings which I adore. Your personality, its hot and bold with a mix of rebel. When I am around you, your heat makes my heart all warm and toasty. Your element destroys and devours, which I am feared. It's not your fault. You are created to burn, which you are destructive and spread ashes. I know you can be a monster and be horrifying, but you are more than that. You warm me in the winter with your love and care, which is why I enjoy you, having memories. Even though you destroy to great lengths, you also create for love, which Is why I love you dearly.

God's ThumbprintA silver orb it danglesGod's Thumbprint5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
High in the sky of night,
Among the starry hosts that flicker
The moon glows with softened light.
Casting light on mortals below
It shines on forevermore.
Remember my child when you gaze upward
And see the silvery orb above,
That there is a God who loves.
The moon is His thumbprint marked in the skies
Though the night's eternally dark.
For the world He holds in His hands
As He holds us all.

The Spirit Of the WoodsWinter seems long and everlastingThe Spirit Of the Woods2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
With no end to come at all.
The coldness like the heart of the Devil.
In deep slumber lies a puddle of water in a cave of icicles.
Only a deer's breath can awaken what lies within.
The spirit of green flies among the snow-covered trees
Groaning under the weight of snow.
Flying among lakes of ice, feeling cold without warmth.
She flies above mounds of snow, freeing flowers to bloom once again.
In her wake, grass is finally found, trees freed from their burden,
Flourishing many months after bitterness.
And melting the freezing cold of lakes and rivers.
Creatures who survived awaken or return from long journeys to witness renewel.
Sunlight shines stronger to ward off the darkness longer.
Only few know who created this beauty, who knows who she is.
To bring the wonders of Spring and Summer,
Behold the spirit of the woods.
The War on OppressionThe oppressors unknowingly force the oppressed to use drugs that heighten awareness, by draining them of everything they have. This leads to a better understanding of the relationship between the oppressed and the oppressors. The war on drugs is a war on awareness. A war on understanding. One day, the oppressed will create a war on oppression.The War on Oppression5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

in the primitive soup
flowing through her veins.
She is raw
and red –
the screaming newborn
thrown together by
She gargles, gurgles,
growls as she grows.
And she stares,
at the stars that streak by her
flashing by her
at the speed of cosmic expansion.
And she watches
as the clouds clear –
not dissipating, exactly,
into her sisters.
And she settles into the knowledge
that she is no longer alone
in the universe.
Make Your MarkYou were born to be something special and uniqueMake Your Mark5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
You were born to create a mark on someone's life
Whether it was something large like changing the world
Or something small like enriching minds
There was a reason to why you were born
And you should find that reason
And though the battle scars never fade
From all the wars you thought you would never win
Though there may be times where you feel alone
Like you're one versus one hundred and all odds are against you
You were born to make your mark
And you shouldn't give up til its made

one that slept underground until the moon rose
walked the paved streets looking for its light,
waiting for the eery silence of the city
you looked into her mouth and wanted her teeth
yearned to reach into her stomach and find the words
that you can never say, only write on the inside of your thighs
you invited her to sleep under your bed,
where the monsters will not find her (she refused and you are restless)
at dawn you watched her walk down your driveway
without turning to look back at you, picking up speed
as the sun kissed the horizon
mother searches for her these days, under your bed
i think she misses her
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 Moon2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This

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.

as the snow silently glistens
as it swirls and twirls
it's way to the frost covered earth.
Each little flake is different than the last
and never will be copied by another.
Why can't we,
be like the beautiful crystallized water,
and just be unique.
We were made to be original,
much like a flake of snow.
Yet we strive to be like one another,

The sharp wind crawls up my spine.
Wet soil squishes beneath my bare feet,
as I walk towards the shadows of the forest.
The silence of the woods seeps within me.
But yet the Noise terrorizes me.
Queen of the cityThe ash grey paws on the pavementQueen of the city2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
The few in the thin white whiskers
The reflection of the rain in her eyes
The majesty of her gait.
She's like a princess
Surrounded by her city
Yet not afraid to be dirty,
Not always the dainty pet you know.
A sight scratch on her leg
She comes home with a purr
Then disappears again with the fog.
The people walk next to her
Looming above her, they know
Even though they may be larger, they are not greater.
For everyone knows—
The humans are only subjects
To the gentle ruling of the cat.

In soil rich with your grace
Where, rooted in you, I can be something new
Under my Gardener’s face.
Lord please take me, your seed, and train my vines
To climb the trellis you made
Where, following you, I can go somewhere new
Under my Gardener’s face.
Lord please take me, your seed, prune my sick leaves
Throw them into the waste
For each time you do, I’m healthier by you
Under my Gardener’s face.
Lord please take me, your seed, rain water on me
Give my fruit a sweet taste
So wherever it falls, its flavor recalls
The love in my Gardener’s face.
