Golden StormToday I raced the running clouds,Golden Storm4 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
While I followed a yellow road.
Above me a golden beast claimed the sky,
Across a blue prairie it strode.

Signaling the time that I shall rise.
There are no sounds other than the sleeping honey bees,
But there isn't anything that should give me surprise.
I spotted a rabbit nestled in its borrow unaware of its close demise,
So I quickly and accurately made the kill.
I carried it in my jaws as a worthy prize
Up to the lonely, black hill.
I was satisfied as I sat stone still.
The moon was bright, but the sun will come soon,
So I tilted my head back and with precise skill
Let out a single note meant for howling at the moon.
I never heard the birds flying with despair,
But I did hear a single gunshot crack throughout the air.
Sunset In BaltimoreI have seen the silenceSunset In Baltimore7 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Of the city's coat of snow
And I have heard the grasses
Through the sidewalk try to grow
I have walked the alleys
As the chatter fell to rest
And I have seen the nightly winds
And felt them in my chest
I have passed the bayside
And weeks ago I stalled
As ripples chased each other
To the edges of the wall
And I remember thinking
'What a luxury today
With all the fears of old resolved,
To sit and watch the bay.'

Autumn falls like rain drops on the grass,
it comes, then heaven casts it down to fast,
and if I call, and nothing's there to last,
then I watch Autumn fall and stain the colored glass.

The snowflakes always fall
But if they’ve ever struck the ground
No one can recall
Inside an autumn wonderland
The green leaves all turn red
Orange, yellow, brown, and breeze
Blows pumpkins overhead
The land turns in and out
A wide array of separate tides
It’s never seen the light of day
But glows eternal night
The fields stretch on for miles
And the dead trees tower high
It comforts all who nourish it
And frightens passerby
The ground bleeds slowly
Multi colors permeate the grass
The mushrooms now have all been picked
They were supposed to last
Greed and Selfish..Greed and selfish notions have created a society full of men who act immorality, and habitually show a lack of chivalry that's effecting our entire societies integrity, through selfish and indifferent actions.I think it's time for us as a nation to man up, start accepting our social responsibilities, and commit to a mutually symbiotic effort to get our together, before we all wind up manifesting a physical state of""Hell on Earth" through purely selfish actions..The greatest and most important battles, are those we wage quietly with ourselves..Success should be measured by personal happiness and enjoyment of life, which really has nothing to do with a fat wallet. Prejudice convinces poppet's that they are kings, makes enemies out of friends, and destroys nations from within. To not encourage and inspire the growth of others, is perhaps the most Selfish things We can do..Greed and Selfish..15 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This

Saved each other
For each other;
You look his back
In Death or in a fight;
Blood links Our balance
It Makes us Strong
If one is right
the other is Wrong;
We are One
A bullet Creating a disaster
And a Gun having It's fun
Standing back to back
We will die but never run,
An abomination in the dark
One's the fuel
And others the spark
Burning to the ground
To make our mark
One would bite
And the other would bark
Raising their flag on the ruthless ark;
The two Dog sitting inside
the lonely Mind
One looking for peace
And the other seeking for a crime
This the the show of a real time
Where the man gets a chance
To meet his true kind.
