Sing and dance
Come O Spring!
Bring thy wild romance
Wake the sleeping world
From it's slumber deep
There is only so long
that anyone should spend asleep!
Bring your warm rains
Bring your sweet sun
The time of slumber is over
Let's have some fun!
When spring comes
So too will the clover, the flowers, and leaves
And so too will long times of talk
as people picnic amongst the fair trees
Yet forget not what work
Spring will require
For only with great effort
Will a part be as successful as one would desire
So dance and run
Jump and sing!
For only with great effort
Will one bring about spring

of a cool fall afternoon.
The leaves red and orange and brown,
a rainbow of warm colors
as the world becomes cooler
preparing for winter.

Millions falling from the sky
Tears of a cloud
Luminous sky gone
Animals will sing a song of loss
Young and not knowing the sky hasn't been lost
Tears from the sky
All call for the
Sweeping dashes of blue
Relaxed in nature yet
You must greet the clouds to thrive

discesa sull'erta collina,
e creste montane innevate
dinnanzi all'ignuda brughiera.
Tra grotte che tacciono suoni
il mondo s'immerge in natura.
Rigettano insieme la vita
il mare e il suo sciabordio.
Il vento ha spazzato i legami
dispersi nei vasti interstizi,
il suono di un'arpa dorata
su pascoli verdi brucati di fresco.
La terra si ammanta di casualità:
la bruma saltella nei boschi,
la sabbia volteggia su dune dorate
al colpo sommesso del tuono.
Nell'arida steppa ingrigita,
un rosso tramonto infuocato
preannuncia la notte di stelle.

(a poem in prose)
In the window of the bus
Trees, all in the frost,
To the last branch silver plated.
And especially beautiful and sad
Rowan, burdened red grapes.
And the grey sky,
And the dry grass on vacant lots
Opening me to the future.
But the noise of the motor
Not allow me to hear what was said.
Closing her eyes,
As in the window of the bus
Run, staying away,
The trees in the frost.
A Love For Ocean and SeaIt has occurred to me,A Love For Ocean and Sea1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
That I might be in the
Minority of people, who
Are fond of big bodies of water.
They say it is too vast,
I say it is not vast enough.
I call its depths beautiful,
But they say, they caught my bluff.
The creatures are too big
Too scary, too unknown.
But, I would go out and see
Them, all on my own.
I could go to the sea,
and smell its salty breeze.
Dive right into it and,
Swim out, far beyond the
Birds, and all of the trees.
The ocean?? It's my home!
I will not be kept locked up,
Inside your tiny dome.
You can't keep me from it,
I will not be afraid,
Because, if I believed in it,
In another life, I know,
I was a majestic beautiful mermaid.
The feeling I get in water
Is exhilarating, and amazing.
The ocean is part of why God,
Receives all of my praising.
I understand the fears,
I understand why my beloved,
Ocean is the thing of nightmares.
But I could never be scared.
One day, one day I will go to the biggest,
Ocean on the face of the earth,
And I will float in it,

Wailing at the moon, a loon, and a zombie of integrity.
I'm blatant, and rinsed in mucky water.
Breathing life into nothing, I remind me of my mother.
I am a traveler of withdrawn stars, seeking tongue-tied applause for all the things I’ve yet to do,
For all the visions that have yet to come true.
I stand before the crowd of electric stellular faces; I stare at them with faceless eyes.
They turn their back, and to my surprise, I recognize them better this way.
So hear I am, still a boy and still a man. Chasing brutes through foreign lands.
Then I play on my guitar, as I count all the passing cars, preordained towards a future I’ll never know.
Because I am fragile, see I am already grown.
I am a tree, saying goodbye to its last amethyst leaf, as it descends down to the earth.
I count its blessing and I ponder about its worth.
I ponder things that those have seen, the endless blossoming eternal reverie.

Summer sun to winter plume
Flying, soaring, falling free
Songbirds sounding harmony
Death of cold and autumn nights
Raindrop clouds of grey and white
Fading dreams where seasons meet
Time, a constant, endless beat
Rhythm in the form of time
Seasons meet where dreamers shine
Clouds of raindrops plainly made
Autumn nights are soon to fade
Birds of song make sounds of light
Freely falling, soaring flight
Winter plume to summer sear
Flowers bloom with dewdrop tears

ashes falling like leaves in October.
Life, once brilliant and bright,
is now crumbling in on itself.
The people run towards safety but find none.
The world outside is barren
to those who seclude themselves inside the city
for the outside world wants only to destroy them.
So PeacefulA small green clearing,So Peaceful1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
trees all around
birds chirping in trees,
frogs croaking in a nearby pond,
wind rustles the leaves on the trees
flowers blossom all around,
A small kid wanders into the clearing,
soon followed by their mom and dad
they look around and take a deep breath,
inhaling the sweet air,
"I wish I could stay here forever" whispers the young girl
RainLet the rain fall around meRain1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
I bathe in the gravity, the endless void
I allow all my emotions to bubble to the surface
All that is left is my own heart
Beating, resonating through my soul
I dream of wild beasts, and sweat
Ocean waves crashing around me as I fall
I can see the danger lurking there
But I no longer feel fear
No god, no beast can stop me
While the rain falls, I am infinitely powerful
The way the water crashes around me
And naked bodies dance in sunlight
Fills my mind with wonder
And I stretch out my fingers to grasp
This strange new entity,
This hidden part of my identity
I am sorry I was forced to shun thee, soul
Are we not all human animals?
I am the water, the ocean, the earth
The wind who whips me holds no power
In this euphoric bliss it is I who plays God!
I have no need nor desire to rest
Why should I? I can’t die yet!
I will protect the earth with every atom in me
With every element I can use
With the very shards of my soul!
I am wind, rain, ocean

This is my elegy to
the paint-chipped steps
and autumn crowns.
To invisible breaths
across the yard and back.
I mourn the loss of Scorpius,
but welcome Orion.
I hang my August words
and trade my voice for frost.
This is the death of back-porch nights,
the barefoot gait,

never fully understood
a confusing, damned thing
getting in the way of everything
throw that into this game that people seem to play…
is it possible to separate emotions from lust?
is it entirely without emotion
having sex draws two people closer
are you going to tell me that a bond can live without emotion?
That’s what I thought
go I plead you
I am no fool to be used by you
I am not a tool
not something to be used
to be made aware
only when you need me to satisfy your sexual needs
call it humane
call it biological
a physical need
That’s not what I am here for
I will protect my heart
Emotions that I do not want
I will not stir
go back to your girlfriend
I wont, dont, want to come between you two
I will not risk my reputation
I am not a relationship breaker

Yapraklar süzülerek düşüyorlar
Rüzgarların hafif dokunuşlarında
Sonbaharın renkleri gidiyor
Başka bir mevsimin başlangıcına
Hışırtılı sesler çıkartıyor ayaklarımız
Herbir adımda geçmişte kalan hayallerimiz
Bir sonraki yeşerişi beklemek üzere
Hiç sevmemiştim oysa çıplak ağaçları
Toprağı örten kurumuş yaprakları
Bulanık gökyüzünü ve kuşların göçetmelerini
Çürüyüp giden ıssızlığımıza.
Poetry of the DayWhere the wind blows, the trees whisper...Poetry of the Day2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
They tell each other secrets... secrets we cannot foretell.
We sit by these trees daily, hoping to hear an answer.
But all we hear is wind.. blustering through the breeze.
As much as we try, we cannot become trees.
I'm serious, I once stood in my topiary garden with leaves in my hair and was buried in the soil...
I did not want to admit it, but I would rather feed myself seeds and let the tree grow in me instead.
Trees have all the fun, trees have all the glory.
But there's one thing don't have to worry about that trees sadly have to do.
They have nosy and indecent neighbors.
Yes... they have to tackle with rabid animals, snow, hibernation, and bushes...
Don't get me started on those shrubs of torture.
Bushes are like the Second cousin you remove twice from your family, except they never go away.
Telling horrible jokes, being a jerk to everyone.
It makes you wonder why...
So next time you go outside, as the wind blows..
Look at your tree..

No matter where you hide, or how deep you dive.
All the troops you can send, every loved one you hide behind
None can save you now.
Ill stalk you in the light, and in the darkness
Wether you ascend the mortal plane, or take refuge in your mind
I will always find you and drag you back
Then when hope is gone and your spirit crushed
I shall stand before you and speak
"It doesn't matter where you hide, how you move, or who helps you
I shall follow you wherever you go
You cannot hide from me, not from this monster
Plead all you want, and scream even more
You cannot flea
From the monsters
Inside yourself." ^~^

Scarlet rays as they slide out of sight.

Is saying goodbye for now,
Leaves cover the path
That once we walked together
While holding hands,
Now I don't see it anymore
I only see mourning
But nature is still here
Guiding winter to our door
Knocking on the window.
Sitting near the fireplace
This is the life
Which we always wanted
To leave behind,
Nevermore shall we cry
Nevermore shall we say goodbye
We will wait
For the first homecoming snowflake.

as fawns nuzzle my heels,
urging me forward into
the ocean of fallen blossoms.
petals plunge against my ankles and
buds waft across the meadow
to land, swirling, ballerina-like
into my open hands.
syrupy heat saunters alongside me
and pushes me forth,
onto the expanse of a
night-sky draped, emerald summer.
crickets trill their songs while
meadowlarks nestle in their nests.
i am cocooned in humidity and peace.
leaves change colors answering
the call of time, bright oranges,
reds, yellows, slowly fade to
the same dry wrinkled brown.
the fallen leaves give way to
the great gusts of cold wind,
playing upon the breeze in a
final salute to their former glory.
cold and snow play outside
my frosted window panes,
calling to me to come out
and join them in their frolicking.
