Allowing the Arcadian rhythm to flow,
Opening my mind to drink,
The sight of life and what is sown,
As everything winds gently,
So my breath ceases,
Ask where I've went,
I Feel Petals FallingI Feel Petals Falling1 hour ago in Free Verse More Like This
I feel small.
Weak and fragile.
Being born into a world, that I can get lost in.
I feel like I'm growing.
Tall and slender.
Like hair not being cut for months.
I feel like I'm sprouting.
Showing my colors to the world.
Smiling to the rising sun.
I feel refreshed.
Cool and replenished.
Drinking water very morning.
But one day...
I feel like I'm being crushed,
By something heavy.
Being torn apart.
I feel like I'm on the cold hard earth.
Laughing is all I hear.
I hear the other ones screaming.
What happened? I ask the others.
All I hear are screams that answer me.
Why is this happening?
Why do I feel so much pain?
The last thing I saw was someone smiling.
I feel useless.

A million tears run down my face
I'll never understand why
God took you to his place
He never said why.
We never got to say goodbye-
All i know what to do is cry.
I can't bring you back
I know that for a fact.
This pain we feel is so real,
Your our little baby
You always will be.
I hope god makes you happy
I hope he looks after you
The way we did
Right up to the day
That god desided
To take you away from me.
RainRain.Rain3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Arthritis for some, a hindrance for many.
Perhaps even a fear, or a warning for dangers ahead.
But for me, the rain is a form of peace.
As I stare out my bay window of my bedroom and watch the streets flood,
I can see the water flowing down the road like the rivers I used to swim in as a child.
I close my eyes and breathe in deep, and soon the rain lulls me to sleep.
It's my favorite lullaby, more comforting than any song to sing.
I know that when I wake,
The rain will dissipate.
So just for a little while,
I listen to the rain and smile.
Mother EarthMother Earth teaches me,Mother Earth6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Turns me again into a child of nature,
Sharpens my senses to listen to the birds,
To see the beauty of plants around me,
To feel the fine veins of a leaf.
She allows me to become a part of nature.
Her wisdom is deep inside of me.
I am a living cell in the Heavenly Light.
I am a child of the earth and of God.
She opens my heart for the wonders and joy of life,
Fills my mind with gratitude and kindness,
Let me wake up and realize that I live -
And I always remember that
I owe her a part of my life.
She is mother and creator in one.
She gives and takes life.
Scientists honor her by numbers.
I do not honor her by living on her but with her.
All beings will go to the Mother.
Mother Earth gives life and takes it back.
She is not cruel.
She loves her children,
And her children come and seek comfort.
All beings will go to the Mother.

giants wander eternities
cracking roots move slow
forest moving round
a mighty presence speaks calm
with silent words of care
happily flowing with wind

old presences fade
new beginnings rise
shaking ground with pounding force
forest stands anew

It's only May!
Where did spring go?
Had a long, long, long, long winter.
Was waiting for spring to come.
But now it feels like mid-July.
Walking around in shorts and sandals.
I think we skipped a season.
It's been either too cold or too warm.
For only a couple days has it actually felt like spring.
I long for those days to return.
The sun is beating down mercilessly.
I want to go hide in the basement.
It's too warm to do anything.
I'm not used to this weather yet.
It's only May!
Where did spring go?
Storm RavenA phantom in the night on ebon wings,Storm Raven1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
When thunder roars and lightning sings,
From its heart you hear my cry,
When grey mass now engulfs the sky.
Peal of thunder hear my cry,
Carry me swiftly carry me high,
Out of reach and out of sight,
Bring forth the blackness of my night.
I glide above the oceans swell,
How mighty rise and crashing fell,
The sea, my mighty storm it bore,
And roaring met its end on shore.
Inside you shelter and doors you lock,
When lightning forks its tongue on rock,
And high above I joyous fly,
When rain torrents from blackened sky.
For those who spy my avian form,
Know I am the warder of this storm,
Though it swells in ferocity,
Know that no harm will come to thee.
Though rain cascades by my outstretched wings,
While thunder roars and lightning sings,
And wind are blowing through the tree’s,
And storm waves rolling from the sea’s
This storm is mine; it’s in my heart,
I am its keeper, if in part,

Each flutter silken passage long,
Nothing shouted, nothing wrong,
She lands atop my finger lightly,
Before she journeys into night,
And motes of moondust fleck my skin,
And she again bursts into flight.

The birds chirping and singing,
The grass waving, talking in whispers.
Trees dancing to their own tune.
Each with its own sound,
Every one unique on its own.
No two can be exactly alike.
For when it's silent it is truly beautiful.

Birds tweeting, river flowing.
Waves of grass, a gentle breeze,
Sun shining through the leaves.
Moon glowing starts shining,
Sunset on the horizon.
Cloudless skies and butterflies.
The place I want to see.
There's hanging vines,
With dapples of sunshine.
Little streams keep flowing.
Tree so tall it's hard to see
The last branch on it.
The place I want to be.
Wild vines hanging down,
Every one is away from here.
Listening to the forest song,
Birds singing, crickets chirping.
This is the place I dream of,
The place I hold so dear,
The place I want to share with my love.

The stars making a pearly light.
The sky glowing so bright,
Covering everything in sight.
The wind whistled in the dark,
The sound was like that if a singing lark,
The small lights looked like a spark,
The cold was biting like a shark.
The grass decided to dance,
The deer went on to prance,
The light started to enhance,
Making the perfect night for the romance.
Scarlet Warriors Scarlet WarriorsScarlet Warriors1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
The lives of scarlet warriors... Falling from battles yet unwon, they are crisp in dying, but shattered in death. No funerals await these gallant souls who stood so steadfast in their kingdom high, only to be trodden underfoot with the passing of time. No stories will be told of their battles fought, only of their beauty as they lost. Green in birth and yellow with age, their stories shape takes true form. But in red they stain the ground alike. No weapons have they, save their bodies as shields alone. Their kingdom stands now bare until it’s born again in greening spring. No nobility have they in death, save to lie amongst their fallen comrades. They all litter the ground under trodding feet, and they all watch as others fall away to join them. No one else passes by to close their eyes to preserve their dignity and the illusion of sleep. With wide blood shot eyes and protruding veins they look up to the white skies of coming

For the world,

And tell them that for now,
It is okay.

I watch him hop, tap nerviously,
Though I want to take her,
And have him alight upon my arm,
She will not perch, and hops away;
Dangerously, across the tarmac,
And each step I take drives him,
Further into peril on my account,
So I walk away, she left to fate,
To the cruelties of iron, and her wit.

Cool air, crisps in my lungs,
Mist stings my eyes;
Even Dandelions may be beautiful,
In their own way, special,
Little suns clad in green,
Their leaves dragon toothed.
But my breath catches, and so I fall,
I come to rest in the supple grass.

To carnage and dust,
And it its glare,
A gleaming blue,
Crystal coded lust;
Ink quick vastness spreads the border far,
Each a world unto itself,
Soul sparked in flame,
Each a single lonely star;
Even so this space is cold,
And in every aeon greater still,
Till nothing bar the space remains,
And thus the spheres are old.
