leaping over one another!
Warriors and dragons!
kings and queens and monsters!
All them morphing,
So much feeling,there!
hanging right above me!
Anger, treas and melancholy
calmness, happiness and wary darkness!
So much beauty!
So much simple fascination!
And all I have to do,
Is look up...
where the sky is hanging.

The Wild Line Of The Sea
by Tricia Pattinson
We rode the crashing waves
Filled our eyes with its sparking foam
Listened to its cheers rush in, or its moans
The burning of the Sun's sweeping heat
The passing cloud's relief
More motivation for diving in hiding
The summer on the wild line is too soon out of reach
Away from touch but not memory
My senses have it all ingrained
The blankets and umbrellas watching
The chase of crabs and seagulls
Sand and ocean playing tag
The nakedness of my belly
Like an upside down periscope
Feeding my smile with irradesent light
The invasion of the wild line
Retreats when summer ends
Who could forget moments on the line?
Or, the upcloseness of solid vs liquid
The power of fixed and fluid; logic vs artistry
The beauty and dangers of the wild line
We, who staked umbrellas by the thousands
Aligned on sand floor stadiums
Watched and learned; touched and caressed
The wild line of the sea

quaking growth, the ocean blooms
like a field of hyacinths, swells pregnant
with half-moon belly
open windowsill, the horizon
Future and OptionsHow do you uncook the glaciersFuture and Options7 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or distill carbon dioxide
Can you return everything
With your godly intelligence
To the beginning?
Make a challenge out of entropy
Instead of profits?
When will you grow tired
Of your silly games
Hide and seek with numbers
The margin is cracking around you
Between nature and capital gains
Too late to cry when water
And they wonder why you denied
Them a future and an option:
life is a killerKill the killer who has killed many yet the victims themselves kill to kill as if some part of the brain urges the killer to kill some morelife is a killer10 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
the killer cannot stop who they must kill
like a psychopath who kills for fun as well as kill people inside their mind
why the killer kills is a mystery that kills the brain cells sender the thinker to kill out of confusion
to kill is to destroy to destroy is to kill
everyday someone who lives must be killed for that is a law of life as is being killed is to be alive itself for we are born only to be killed by every imaginable death that covers the circle of life
so when life is killed it returns to where all life began right on mother earth itself
to be killed is to live as life that is killed nurtures the life that remains in its place

The Will of WaterThe drip droppingThe Will of Water13 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is ripping at my patience
Like a cat
Of liquid on solid
Forceful enough to shred
The stone beneath my feet
In an epoch.
This is the will of water
Unspoken and acting
In silent display
Like lightless colors
All turned to black
But present all the same.
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 Moon1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This

But my heart was frenzied from the start. I cant fathom why i was mesmerized by this infuriated beast, or why it was agonizing the way he grimaced before it ran east. I will never forget the way my primly fingers felt through his elborate fur. my fingers trembling, for how long i wasnt sure. His thoughts seemed inconclusive and every move i made was crucial. The consequences of my action could lead to friendship or something brutal.if he decided he could take my hand in redemption, maybe he did love me or maybe he was confused about my intentions.

Please hang on to this letter, I have so much to say about you. Where do I begin? Your long, luscious hair is like flaxen fabric. It felt so soft, it's like being wrapped up in silk. You have a windy and bubbly personality, which is why I like being around you. You are always bright, full of new ideas and very cool, which is what makes you, yourself. You can have a bit of a temper, stirring up tornadoes to hurricanes. I know you have a very destructive temper, but that's you. I can't help but get nervous when we are together. You never noticed me, which is why I wrote you this letter. I could never tell you what I like about you, in person,I am always scared or nervous if I tried. Also, your are very free-flowing, meaning everything that is very unique about you. I hope you get this letter because I wish I could tell you how I feel about you in person.
Sincerely, a secret admirer.
TrustI crash through the leavesTrust2 days 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.
FearI enter without direction, without purpose;Fear2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
I think with my feet and allow my mind to wander.
The rapid staccato of knocking on her front door awakens me to her song:
I hear a bird having an exaggerated conversation with itself,
exclaiming monosyllable yellow phrases;
The wind, yearning for her son she lost years ago,
sifts and searches through the leaves;
A high-pitched crescendo accompanies their approach
as the gnats whine about their frivolous matters in my ear;
A lazy brook gliding past rocks touches it’s lips to their sides,
and the sound of a million lovers tenderly kissing fills the air;
The drowsy leaves rising from their winter slumber stretch
their stiff tips, emitting minute pops and creaks.
As time goes by shadows lengthen,
dimming the once vibrant natural hues.
Worry sets in;
The Where Am I?s begin to tumble into my head,
in avalanche of doubt and anxiety.
She can smell the fear like a dog smells raw meat.
The open path becomes tangled and crowded;
My eyes dart left

I hope you receive this letter, please don't try to wet the letter. It's filled with my thoughts for you. Your sparkling eyes are like sapphires, your wavy hair felt wet, but somewhat like silk. The various shades of light blue to dark twilight is like the night sky. You have a cool 'go with the flow' attitude, being all calm and able to relax easily. I wish I could be calm and chill like you, but I am all wild and crazy, something you do not want-but Water, please read the rest of the letter. Whenever I am with you, I just relax and felt very warm in the inside. You make me very calm and tame, feeling like letting go of my worries and my fears. At night, you sparkle like diamonds, which I also enjoy about you. If I ever felt scared, sad or any other negative emotion, I come to you and your body comforts me. Water, I'm not much of a poet, but I hope you like the letter anyway. I wish to speak to you like this, but I am not made for that. I like you, do you like me?
Queen of the cityThe ash grey paws on the pavementQueen of the city3 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.

The Spirit Of the WoodsWinter seems long and everlastingThe Spirit Of the Woods3 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 Lone WolfThe snow outside falls, covering the ground in a blanket of white.The Lone Wolf3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Footprints of a wolf mark his path. The old, graying wolf of a lost pack
He hunts for survival, never backing down in the face of the harsh elements he calls home.
Though hearing may be failing him, the lone wolf knows when his prey is near.
He knows, the lone wolf knows.
Weak he may be getting, but the pride of a pack never fades.
The lone wolf searches for a pack that he knows is gone, but his being never gives up.
The lone wolf knows he is dying, but hangs on to the hope that keeps him going.
Never receding a stride, never giving up suntil his pack is found.
Days had passed beyond what his body could handle.
Yet the lone wolf strode on until one day, alas!
The lone wolf takes his final step and his last breath as he collapses in a blanket of snow.
Pride that was the driving force had become his demise.

I wont stay here forever on this perch.

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

Why can't we,

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 Growing Mind of HumanityBecause of awareness and connection, through social media, social change occurs much more rapidly now. As open racism, homophobia, sexism and other forms of seperation and hate become ugly and socially forbidden, we will become more connected and understanding of ourselves.The Growing Mind of Humanity4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
The internet is a seemingly invisible place that is accessed only through certain tools we have invented. We stare into this place because we sense that it is important and necessary. It's a universe made of information that we feed and grow. Many people now visit the place we call the internet, daily. We frequently bring back information from there and use it to improve and connect ourselves. The internet is our collective mind that increases in size, as our population grows. Every individual shared and understood experience triggers neurogenesis within our collective brain. Every action and experience is connected and important. Everything we choose to do effects the rest of our global mind.
