we are so insignificant,
how can we think we
control the world when
there are mountains
resting in the clouds,
bears and cubs dozing in
birds living above the
how can we think we
are larger than life,
conquerors of death,
when all of space
shows us how out of
place we are in the cosmos?

I shall crash upon the shore
Let my waves
Rush upon you
And remove all sense of being.
Floating in the water
Pushing and pulling
Is that like the tide?
Always the same
Always on time
Yet I don't
Yet I float in nothingness
Bound by rules
Can we call it freedom?
Knowing no rules
Everything is still
Would stay forever
Could be reality
Eating the old
Giving birth to the new
Mother and executioner
Broken Man, Broken LandI wish I had more of this time and tendernessBroken Man, Broken Land1 day ago in Free Verse
More left of a young heart and wilderness
But we’ll run to the city and make ourselves a nest
I know your love won’t carry with me from a grave to heaven
No love in you will take me from graves to the heavens
I won’t be cold before your arms hold some other man
I won’t hardly be gone to your arms are holding some man
In a heart of wilderness
Have my heart of wilderness
Run beside me, clutch my hand, we'll run and dream in the heart
I’m not going to turn away from your light
Oh, this time I won't turn from your light
We can just make believe that everything’s alright
And kiss our lovers a good night
The morning spins to noon, noon into night
Oh, this morning spins into noon and noon through night
I have a heart that’s a haven to all this fright
I’m just a misfired broken shard of clay
In a heart of wilderness
Have my heart of wilderness
Run beside me, clutch my hand, we'll run and dream in the

Whispers Of Goddess )O(Whispers Of Goddess )O(6 days ago in Free Verse
In the depths of the earth
in the mists of human forgetfulness
the destiny is revealed
in our faith
Beings of nature
shamanic masters of wisdom
protecting and healing
our body and our soul
Hear my call
Heed my supplications
I invoke the power of attraction
attracting only the necessary
to my complete satisfaction
and in return to this gift
I become myself the portal
which reveals the wisdom of the ancient gods
I become myself the lantern
which illuminates the darkness of the asleep mind
Here in the terrestrial world
I get the spiritual guidance
through the sound of the wind
Here in the objective reality
I get the protection of the gods
through the energy of the moon
The Goddess speaks to my ears
whispers in my mind
all I need transmit to my fellows
all that is hidden in our subconscious
The veil of Isis is guarding all secrets
all mysteries will be revealed at the right time
and nothing will be like before
You are not here to prove his worth

Fragility is not always weakness.
The Fox (A Poem by me)The Fox.The Fox (A Poem by me)6 days ago in Free Verse
There once was a fox
That lived near some rocks.
He had red-brown fur
And cute black socks.
He had a warm earth
Where he hid during the day
And when it was night
He would come out to play.
When the lights are out
The fox comes about.
He strolls through the streets
Without any doubt.
With his senses so keen
And his fur’s lovely sheen
He’s the handsomest thing that you’ve ever seen.
The Fox is fast
Just watch him race passed.
He yipping and yapping
He’s having a blast.
During a storm
He keeps himself warm.
And hopes that the rain will stop by dawn.
So that is the story of the handsome red fox
With that big, bushy tail
And the cute black socks.
He retreats to his earth
So warm and deep.
He settles down and goes to sleep.

|Owl Guide|I am an owl,|Owl Guide|3 days ago in Free Verse
I may look keen but I'm not foul.
I stay up most of the night hours,
Hearing the howls and the growls.
I swiftly fly from tree to tree,
Mice cannot hide for I can see,
And no matter how much they plea,
They are lunch to me.
If you ever venture out in the woods,
You may hear me hoot,
You glance around trying to look,
But you cannot see me for I hide good.
I over look everything in the dead of night,
I'm the one most consider me as wise,
I can tell the truth from the lies,
I can also see what is left behind.
You have met with a terrible fate haven't you?
What is is that you seek, or is it a who?
What would you like me to do?
I have a single clue.
You seem lost, do you need help find your way home?
You've been walking in circles, I've seen you roam,
You seem all by your self, are you alone?
I can hear as you walk you groan.
I may be the key into finding your way out of here,
All you need to do is just listen in and hear,
My hoots will lead you to where you need to be near,

Under a sky of light grey, fleeting clouds
They are reminiscent of spring

And untamed storms for every magpie’s song
You Are The MoonThere's beauty in that thickening dusk;You Are The Moon1 week 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
Fog in PennsylvaniaFall's first blushFog in Pennsylvania1 week 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.
Love My Friend, The Rain!Love My Friend, The Rain!Love My Friend, The Rain!1 day ago in Free Verse
I hear the soft steady patter of rain.
Such a soothing sound to drown out pain.
The pain of loneliness and of heartbreak.
Replacing that pain with the calmness the rain makes.
I feel myself falling deeper into the slumber of the night.
Dreaming about how I shall take flight.
Flying over many beautiful and peaceful seas.
Never wanting to come back down, I plea quietly.
Plea to keep on dreaming of flying above the world into the night.
Dreaming on and on until the morning’s first light.
I love my friend, the rain and the rain loves me.
It soothes my aching heart in the biggest times of need.
Oh my dear friend the rain! You are timeless and lovable to all.
Do not ever think about fading away forever.
If you fade away forever, where would the world be?
How would plants and animals keep alive without you there?
Our sanity would slip if we heard nothing but silentness.
The world would be a barren desert if you were no more.
All grass shall lose its green.
Up the MountaintopIt may not be visible but it's thereUp the Mountaintop1 day ago in Free Verse
up there somewhere
birds flock to see it
often get caught up in the trees
But some of them, like you, keep going
past the green
into the white
pasty flakes obscure your sight.
So you stop
a coven, black, keeps you warm
content, you feel safe
and live to die another day
but it's there.
And you feel it
So you keep going, burning
a new feeling
no footsteps, no white.
shorter steps, shorter breath.
You look down and see.
your white, your red, your dark and
you are there.
Writer's painYou stare at an empty page, with so much to say that can't be transposed from feeling to thought. The pen begins to leave welts between your knuckles. The more you think, the harder you grip. You close your eyes to wrap your head around even one statement. One sentence to start the flow. You open your eyes again and see that all you've accomplished is stabbing the pen point deep inside the last hope of release. All that flows are your tearsWriter's pain3 days ago in Free Verse

Considering the SnowThe snow falls steadily, persistent.Considering the Snow5 days ago in Free Verse
Hurrying along to an unknown agenda
To some appointment, some commitment,
That it would be better to arrive early to.
I imagine all the little flakes with little briefcases
And ties tied in little sturdy knots. I wonder
If you, too, sometimes identify with the weather.
Do you look out windows like this, too?
And think that these tumbling snowflakes,
Should take their time in falling,
Have they maybe booked their day -
A bit - too full?
I pause . . . Consider.
And watch the flecks stream downward -
Sifting, swirling, until noiselessly settling
Their pointless size upon the white,

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,

Waterfalls Drip,drip, drop!Drip,drip,dropWaterfalls 3 days ago in Free Verse
The sound is coming near
Tell me can you hear
Faint whispers in your ear
Calling and begging
Yearning for you to be near
Tis a beauty lying within
Waiting to be shown
Dripping and dropping so casually
One by one on the stones
Of your soul waiting to be seen
To be heard,waiting to be heard
To clue you in on your heart
Its faint mystery shining in the dark
A sound mainly felt,but never heard
Till rushing and gushing it comes
Like a flood,like a flood
New joys new tears,feelings will arise
Just happily twinkling in gusts flowing
A beautiful and sad thing,fading away
In,out,in,out never staying the same
Though what can you expect from it
This current if yourself,churning
