That seems to flow,
Beneath the gold,
Of the suns glow.
It flows within,
It floats within,
You feel its breath,
In the wind,
You feel its death,
With every sin.
It does not think,
It does not hate,
It only loves,
It doesn’t berate.
And her breath,
We have a peaceful death
Autumn Fire (Change of Season) I feel the change of seasonAutumn Fire (Change of Season)2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
this autumn fire
the nights getting longer
the impending darkness
this cold breath down my neck.
But I am aflame and
burning with passsion
to a degree that it
almost consumes me.
Memories and dreams
the future and the past
they are merging
in a round-dance of autumn leaves
in the yellow light of street lamps
or in the dim grayness of
one drizzly September day.
I am day dreaming
and the world around me becomes
like the surface of a pond
into which I dip my finger
and suddenly the whole picture
starts to ripple and disperse
and the voices of people talking to me are muted
and I hear something else.
The veil is thinni
DesolatePicture this: a desolate landDesolate12 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of crumbling rocks and dreary sand
Hidden under the heavy mists
That neither wind nor sunlight lifts
The bare, dying trees twist and writhe
As, in efforts made vain, they strive
To reach the light of darkened day
In shadow that does not decay
Barren cliffs of earth and stones
Rise up like jagged broken bones
And eerily throw back the sound
Of water falling underground
A land of memories no more
With broken dreams wrecked on the shore
The ghosts of hope stare towards the sea
Where mockeries of love roam free.
Simple FeelingsAs I walk out of the house to only get the mail my bare feet touch the warm concrete. When I swing the key around my finger the metal clinks on the ring it’s tied to. The warmth of the earth creeps up my legs; I had an urge to fall because the feeling was so soothing, like I was being showered in warm silk. With each step I took, the more of my problems drifted away; the landing of a foot pushed any remaining strain out. It seemed as if I wasn't walking anymore, but floating to my destination. I look to the fading sky and glowing clouds to only have them cleanse my mind. I float my way past where I was supposed to go, and dropped the key. I felt like I wasn't myself because everything else was at peace. At that moment…everything seemed right.Simple Feelings2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This

A Night SkyWhat can't I see?A Night Sky4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
For what is blocking my sight?
I see this curtain here
Covering my sight
Take off the veil
Let's look at the faults
The many we all commit
For we always hide back the truth of our ways
We admire them from afar
Cherishing the sight of silence
The darkness looms and we wrap around it
We love to feel its coolness
We simply feel relieved
While looking up we see what we should
We see the sky
The one thing that remains in our world- day or night
Why change it?
Why must it leave?
For the night gives us ease
The time to think and breath
Our life stops
We become free
For night not only gives us dreams
We can always fly
Our thoughts among the stars
Along the night sky

(a poem in prose)
On the one hand - hazel,
On the other yellow birch.
And even with a muddy swamp with reeds.
In the middle there is an Apple tree with little red apples.
Apples very much.
Branches near the ground.
I look through these branches.
Little red apples in the foreground.
And then see the hazel.
And yellow birch.
And the reeds.
And some belated purple flowers.
And the pale autumn sky.
And silver of the September sun.

where the moss and mushrooms grow
soaking in the quiet music
of the day as it goes by
he doesn’t really want to prance
and he surely doesn’t want to hop
he just wants to sing his song
and watch the pixies dance
under guard by tallest tree
Toady sings for you and me
with his cricket orchestra
he makes a dandy melody

can such beauty grow

i find unmatched beauty
i've seen burning flowers

kept the fire burning
for hours that felt
but the flowers grew
not in the midst of celebrity
or in a glorious field
of far far away
instead the flowers grew
in the darkest
and most corrupted place
you could imagine
because light isn't seen
in a luster;
it only burns pellucidly
in pitch darkness
The Mighty OakOh, mighty oak, how you once stood tall,The Mighty Oak14 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Towering, a fortress, high above all,
But then, somehow, as I glumly saw
You entered in and lost a brawl
With the wind, and the rain,
And the lightning's strain,
All nature's force against your grain,
Which ripped and snapped
As thunder clapped,
Sending out a call,
Telling all the world
Of your humbling, creaking fall.
Then I thought of this
And wondered how
Such a tree, a giant,
A behemoth of sorts
Could be battered
And broken like a
How could it be fractured,
A hold so big?
If you, mighty oak, who once stood tall,
Could shatter and break,
And suffer the fall,
Then why not worldly kingdoms,
The greatest of all?

Makes you want to hide.
The quietness of the air,
Could tell your nose to beware.
In the dark of night
You never know what creatures
Will bring upon fright.
Whether harmless or deadly,
Whether near or far,
The creatures are able
To taste you through the air.
Nighttime brings fear
Into your soul.
Best to be inside,
LightsDay and NightLights2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
They are all around us.
They shine light on the unknown,
They surround us from every area, but below.
They are on equal footing as us.
We strive to be in the sky with the smaller lights.
These lights on the ground keep us from seeing above.
We don't see the glory that awaits us.
Don't you want to see those lights?
Stop letting them blind you.
Turn off the lights.
Don't follow the path covered in light.
Why not try going down the path of darkness.
It's a new path.
Don't be scared.
Those above will be there.
That is right,
You are not alone.
Illuminate the darkness.
Don't let the darkness consume you.
That darkness can also see the light above.
They can see more of the light above.
They can make it!
You can make it.
Show them hope.
See the options they see.
Stop thinking that you are different like,
Night and Day

Fearful of NatureStrange creatures,Fearful of Nature2 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
With different features,
Lurk in the dark,
Even if the land is stark.
They creep, they slither;
They find some way to fill your life with dread.
They can make you wish,
You’d never see their head.
Best be sure you’re not frightened
By a helpful creature.
Because out of this huge world,
Not every creature wants to hurt others.
