weaving words of utmost wonder,
witnessing fair wintry whirlwinds
that sputter through weary willows,
and wade among the windowsills -
not one whisper left obscured...
Even as the stars of woolly white
wither into an angel-winged flame,
welcoming wires of watery copper
that attract the wolves of wildflower,
and wrestle with thoughts of spring -
surely snowfall wins the poets' hands.

the sun to require
such a grand departure
in the Land of the Midnight Sun.
I spied between the towering grass,
adorned with minuscule drops,
and followed the trail
of pebbles and gargantuan slugs
to a small stretch of beach
and radiant boulders
that gleamed in a film of water.
I relinquished my slate of isolation,
and tales of rejected love.
Instead I outstretched my fingers
to timid waves who seldom converged
deprived of crashing
I wondered if life
could thrive in a cloister
lightly idling by.
But if the feeling of life
is exhilarating death
at every waking moment,
What must it be like to feel dead?
With delicate notes of blue
in a sky of relentless grey
the waves aglow with fire
as the last light falls
I found my answer
when I plunged my hand
into the Baltic Sea
and felt my heart
Fir-tree in the ForestOutside it is bitter cold,Fir-tree in the Forest2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Frozen I trudge through the forest.
Untouched, innocent, white -
A bare forest-aisle shines.
Once stood the child’s dream
As a green fir-tree
At the great white place.
This, now as a Christmas treasure –
I am missing badly.
Every year, quite solemn,
I went away on Christmas Eve,
Away from my home.
Hurried quickly to my tree
That was my Christmas dream for me.
Kindled a light -
There my prayer was made.
In the midst of the peaceful forest
I felt only seldom cold.
However, this time it is lacking.
Christmas Eve is empty now.
Sadly, I trot back,
Weeping for lost happiness.
Dear Christ child, tell me why
Are the people so stupid?
They murder my fir-tree,
They kill my Christmas dream.

like someone in a sleeper.
The more the light is choked out,
the darkness only gets deeper.
The white fluffy clouds
are dyed an inky black.
Because of all the saturation,
it will never go back.
Great towers pierce the sky above,
digging in with black fangs.
Their venom spreads continuously
and life is consumed by hunger pangs.
Coughing gases and choking sulphur
mix with the darkness created.
Acid comes down in a fury,
with its intensity unabated.
The green land below turns yellow,
like the sulphur in the sky.
All creatures who drink the rain
are destined to slowly die.
The unnatural heat billowing
and roaring within the walls
enslave all resources around it
and forces all to devolve.
It is as if the earth itself
was reversing its transformation.
All who prepare are still swept away
by this inevitable deformation.

Each one with their mission,
On top of the world,
Alone just me,
They can ask,
But they will never know truth,

But I know you're there,
I don't need my eyes to tell me that.
Flat against the bottom, out of the way,
down in my sightless domain.
Sometimes someone will go missing,
and you will know it was me.
Who else could it have been?
And if you see fit to drag me from my lair
you shall hear me growl.
Even out of my element I am a formidable foe
so you'd best watch out
else you'll be dragged below.

His mother cared for him and caressed him all day.
Tickling his feet to make him writhe and sliver,
Trying to make him laugh though all sorts of play.
She took care of him in sickness and health,
Through the darkest nights and brightest days.
Caring little for recognition or wealth,
As they lied down under the sun's warm rays.
There once was a child who lived near a river,
He and his mother happily spent their time together.
Through the summer's hot days and winter's cold shiver,
It seemed as if the time spent lasted forever.
They played in the meadow next to their home,
Enjoyed the sight of the animals and the stars.
Appreciating the lands that they are able to roam,
Away from the cities full of conflict and cars.
There once was a man who lived near a river,
He and his mother spent their days in solitude.
Where meat is cut up to a fine sliver,
And every day the man shows his gratitude.
He practiced all the time with a bow and arrow,

Dead are the buds and leaves.
Down is sure to come in lives.

Where did you come from?
How did you become?
I would die without the flowers
Laying beside you,
Your closest friends
Yes, I would die without them
But I would kill you
When the summer rain falls
Love visits you
I lay under you
Soaking up your presence
As you soak up the sun
Death won't define you
You're my forever friend
I'll take pictures of you
Your own section in my mental scrapbook
Mother Nature will keep you safe

Why do they cry when they plummet?
The heavenly ring becoming the empyrean valley
Where they find their gait failing
Each star slowly shuts its gaze
The questions remain many for why the twinkle no more.
Would there be a somber elegy to play in place?
A memorial to fill in the void that was lost
Bridaled by the bandits of the inbetween
Why do they not go in faltering silence?
Only the sugar bells chime can bring them peace
Never for their places to be if ever again
Only a moment to remember them by as the dinging fades
They who cannot hold their sprites shall sink deep
Falling through the eternal realm that they live in
Timeless as many times the mortal can survive
Finite is the path to take to the faltering shingle
There it finally gives way to its weight
Grief all encompassing and the burning not so bad
Banding into one final moment as it becomes
One last blaze of glory
When stars are falling in silence.

I must touch the sky with a pinch of sand and

perhaps by an amateur, the ground has failed to be part of the earth.

they speak in a contour of rustles, but what they say is the same,
that we all must crawl back under leaves
for the sun is falling into the ocean, and we cannot.

A shower of light
Cascading down on me
The drifting clouds
The blue iris of the sky
The hot air clinging to my body
A slight zephyr surprises me
A dancing shadow on a tree trunk
The voice of a singing fan
A pleasing rhythmic whirr
Spinning the whole lot round
As if I'm in a dream
A wild horse galloping across a field
Its big heart pumping, its nostrils flaring
Its neigh sends out a wave expanding
Across the great plain
She is racing the Sun to the horizon
The horse suddenly hits water
Through and out the other end
Of the stream
Then onward, ever onward
Racing against the Sun
Towards the bitter end

Somewhere deep inside the woods
Where strangers lurk under their hoods
A smallish house of smallish feature
Might confine some strange-ish creature
The lanterns glow all day, all night
And in the dark it's quite a sight
Shaped as a mushroom, tow'ring high
Branches grown to reach the sky
Around it is a grassy field
And giant stones, some kind of shield?
The sunlight shines down through the glass
And we peek through, and oh, alas,
There is no creature or magic frog
No wizard, witch, or talking dog
It's just a dream in which we live
We get a dream, a dream we give
But though it's pleasant and quite nice
Not everything is sugar and spice
Soon someday we will wake up
And nowhere is that house, or talking cup
Nowhere is the nebula from outer space,
Nowhere is that magical place,
But someday it will be reality
I'll make it so, someday you'll see
My dream is mine forevermore
You'll not take it away, for it's my core

To weave the tale of every face
To rip the cloth of time and space
To hear the stories I have told
For neither are they young or old
I weave the tale of every face
I ripped the cloth of time and space
The gears of earth and moon and sun
The time of mine of earth is done
For earth has broken gone into demise
The gears are threats of a great size
For when they cease to turn we die
Leave to the mercy b'yond the sky,
My tapestry of tales and face
My torn up work of time and space
The fabric's valuable and weak
The gears inside are an antique
And if it's torn the earth will break
The hills explode, the ground will shake
I weaved our tales, your very face
Into my cloth of time and space.
