Life As Seen By A Country RoadThere’s blood on me again.Life As Seen By A Country Road5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Another dead deer.
A truck hit it last night
without bothering to stop.
Now it’s half on me and
half off, bloated belly
exposed to the summer sun.
Cars speed past
on their way to jobs;
most of them I know.
They’ve traveled on me
many times. That’s the thing
about country roads—
there’s not much variety.
I wonder if there’ll be any
drunk drivers today.
There usually are.
It’s amusing how they try
not to swerve by going slow,
as if anyone who saw them
couldn’t tell they were drunk.
This guy once stopped
in my center, yellow lines
directly beneath his car,
opened his door, and
threw up all over me.
The mess was there until
the next time it rained.
traipse down my side,
cigarettes in hand,
kicking up gravel as
they talk about boyfriends
and how much they want
to leave this dead-end town.
A dog wanders from its home.
Hours pass. Traffic slows.
A man mows the outer edge
of his lawn, grass sha

Such a sickening tempo.
The beating of
My hideous heart-
Withered and frozen
From eons of icy silence.
The roots that leech
The essence from my veins
Bloom with bluest flowers
Dancing freely under the moon.
As they sway in the wind
Of every barren winter night,
They whisper to Nature's ears
My story, now resting within the earth
My lifebreath gifted solely to the sky
And stolen from my faded lips.
Song For the ElementsI sing of waterSong For the Elements5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dripping in every pore
Sloshing through every vein
Pooling in each organ.
I drink deeply of the cool draught;
The tap carries Bull Run into my soul.
Rain peers out of my eyes,
And mist infuses every exhalation.
I carry the ocean in every cell.
Not an ocean, mind you.
The one that birthed all life,
The mother of all of us.
Every sip we take is us returning to Mama for a visit.
I sing of earth
The rock that builds my bones
And teeth like storm-smoothed agate.
I have arches in my feet
And gullies at the corners of my eyes,
Through which flash floods rip at a moment’s notice.
I am mountains and hills in all the good places
And valleys so serene you’d swear it was paradise.
I have moss-soft flesh, and steel covered in velvet.
Long ago I was lava.
Tomorrow I’ll be dirt.
And in a week I’ll dive beneath the nearest plate
To build myself once again.
I sing of air
Nature’s own balloon

where the wild river crankles
and forgets the slip of your name
on its heavy, harsh breaths,
I trace callous-chiseled fingers
across the tomentum paths
of an early-ripening skeg
and watch the sun chase chrysography
across leaves shivering
with the weight of new beginnings.

Will you stay to aid in quenching mine need!
I doth say, to my dismay
You turned tail, and ran away...
This rose alone among the bush
Shoved away by the sister's push,
Left like a weed to grow old and feed
Obscured from daylight
The Cinderella of the night
But without mine Prince Bee
Thee to rescue me
...am ready to take the march of Fall
For a rose with no love
Has love for no life at all.
SailorsThe sea knows the sailor.Sailors4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
She knows their dreams and their fears.
A sailor knows the ocean.
They know her brutality and her grace.
They learn under gray skies, over choppy seas, and through brutal winds.
They learn the signs of gusts and violent shifting seas.
They learn the burn of salt and the true power lying within the waves.
They learn the sea shows no mercy.
Sailors do not ask for ease.
They fight under thunderclouds, over crashing surf, and through hurricanes.
They fight the hungry sea that desires to swallow them up.
They fight for victory and for glory against their own.
They fight simply for survival.
Sailors do not ask for ease.
They rest beneath blue skies, on glassy seas, and whispering calm breezes.
They rest on lapping waves and warm currents.
They rest with smiling faces and calm spirits.
They rest cherishing the blessing of peace.
Sailors do not ask for ease.
All the while the sea

"BANDIT!!!!!" I screamed.
I know exactly who took her. I know exactly where to find him. I know exactly where to find her. I will get my revenge this time.
"Bandit!" I yell when I get to the warehouse.
Bandit was sitting in the moonlight and I rushed over to her. A tendril wrapped around my ankle and caused me to fall down. It held me down as Ryan approached me, picking up Bandit in the midst of it. A laugh came from him.
"Well, looks like my revenge is complete." Ryan said.
"What did I ever do to you?" I yell.
"You broke my heart into pieces, now I'll do the same."
Bandit cried and reached out towards me. I tried to crawl away but the tendrils from Smexy were holding me down.
"Why are you doing this?" I yell.
"Because I'm getting paid." Smexy's gripped only tightened with his answer.
"Who are you even working for Ryan?" I asked.
"Someone above you that's for sure." He answered.
Suddenly the world went dark and I was being dragged by someone to somewhere. When I was conscious again I w

shapes form, and merge from nothingness into life
where once there was nothing, now a dim bird chirps
dipping into cups, moving against paper leaving streaks of blue
color sprouts into vibrancy in lush dreams
where once there was black and white now vivid sapphire gleams
scratching on black rigid surface a bird morphs
from behind glass it transforms, a flat ruff blur into sharp crisp life
where once was graphite and paint, now stands a bird free to fly away
Embrace the Flow of NatureThere are many around me who welcome warmer weatherEmbrace the Flow of Nature3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Many around me who welcome the sunshine and flowers
As they welcome Spring with open arms
And bask in what they call "nicer weather"
I look back with sadness and longing
For I miss the days when the sky was gray
I pine for the days when it was cool
When there was no heat to make me sweat
While many love the idea of sunshine, flowers and longer days
I shudder at the thought of heat, bugs, and severe weather
I wish they could prance through the freshly cut grass
While I take one last walk through the beauty that is snow
I wish they could gaze at the beauty of pansies and tulips
While I lose myself in the falling snow
They may enjoy the sight of yellow, pink, green and red
But the only color I need is white
As they wear shorts and let the sun soak their skin
I cringe at the idea of heat-induced headaches
You can bundle up all you want in the cold
But you cannot shed your skin in the heat
As they imagine what they call "April showers"

Someday the next generation will be grateful for that action.
Don't turn the forest into some kind of hell.
Don't turn the rivers into some kind of poison.
Don't turn the skies into some kind of smoke's home.
Let the plants grow,
The rivers flow,
The forest live.
Do not destroy what God has given us as a home.
It may not be eternal,
but appreciate every small second in it.
Let live the next generation.
And enjoy the nature as it is.
Let Earth Live.

Of Wolves and Winter SnowsThere they run...Of Wolves and Winter Snows6 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Their coats a-glitter upon a wintry sequence.
Crunch goes their paws in their irregular drumming
On crystalline dunes.
"What are these majestic creatures?" you may say.
Why, they are Wolves,
Our kindred spirits,
There's no other way.
How their eyes shine with the essence of life!
These fathomless orbs, they pierce deeply into
Searching...Searching, but for what?
A sign of hatred?
This is something we may never know,
About these children of Mother Nature.
Picking up speed, they sing...
Sing a lingering song of ecstasy,
Their hearts beating in time with their paws,
Their breaths steaming out in the frigid air,
In sync are their very souls.
Pulsing is their life's blood against lively veins;
Intertwined with nature herself.
A harmony of Wolves and Winter Snows.

In a place you cannot see
There's a wolf inside of me
howling to be set free.
Underneath a starlit sky,
Just lose yourself and dont ask why.
With the full moon's reflection in our eyes,
Raise them up, look to the skies.
Have a little pride
and show off the wolf inside;
wolves come near and stand beside
so we may howl together side by side.
