like unsung lullabies
stuck in the throat of a strangled sky.
the flowers levitate today,
their tissue paper wings
pink sertraline dreams that the bees cannot sting.
the trees bob their heads today,
like tired old men
falling asleep in church, disillusioned again.
the white thistles are stuck today,
entrapped by their names.
hissing popcorn on stilts, or rupturing brains.
the sun mottles the grass today,
in psoriasis patches,
like liver spots on ivy in the window sashes.
the wind kisses sick patients today,
tucking them in,
and then flees in a rustling dress while she sings.

FallAs the leaves turnFall1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
So too do the pages of a new chapter
A blank book
Or perhaps a page with some notes on it
When the leaves fall
They are not ending
They are beginning
They are pausing for a second, a minute
Maybe you should, too
Maybe you look at the trees
Because maybe there is a little bit of hope
Left to be had in this world
Or maybe you look at the trees
Because maybe everybody comments
On how beautiful they are
And nobody comments
On how beautiful you are
But you are beautiful
And so are they
And so are we
And so is this
And maybe you have to wait
A few more seasons
Maybe today isn’t your day
But one day you will be able to
Let yourself go

But with opened mind.
Cold wind and rain,
Whisper in my ear.

Give me stillness of heart,
Grant me calming sublimity,
And oneness with the earth.

As I opened my eyes, the only thing I saw was the sky. With its azure-colored background, fluffy clouds were splashed all over, the sky looked as if it was in a good mood. Sailing through them were a flock of birds, spreading their wings as if they were a kite. The gentle winds blew the leaves of the trees, making them dance in excitement. As I looked at the dark-blue lake beneath the hill, swans were seen, peacefully floating on the waters like buoys on the seas. Alongside them were their offspring, clinging together as close as possible like a thread in a cloth.
As I turned to my right, I saw field, filled with grass and trees. The scenery was like a painting of a masterpiece that was made once in blue moon. The plains the filled with children, playing tag, not realizing that they could play something much more fun. Right beside me were my siblings, sleeping soundly, locked away in dreamland.
As I stood up, I realized that this

Oh, the summer moon!
Stripped to bare skin, burnished smooth
Bathes in still waters
The moon rose, slinking
Over trees, their leaves burnished
And dull foil silver finished
She, the moon sipped
The dark of waves
Of deep waters, grey
And mercury dipped.
As an old woman she laid
Just above the rock reef stone
Hooded, in her winter shade
A specter of both coal and bone.
Rain, incessant, settled into
A heavy October mist.
I was alone, except
Beside me on the cold sheets
You left behind the low hung moon
Moon, the moon
Who might, in hurried footfalls break
The midnight springtime’s upturned face
In settling on a mirrored wave
Her visage crests, then swiftly cracks
While gulls with banded wingtips snap.
Into the mists, concealing all
As on the rocks the slivers fall
The Last ElephantLumbering through grey SavannahThe Last Elephant5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Kicking up swirls of dust
Path making on Earth's crust
The last elephant finishes his circle.
It's voice is hoarse from calling
Its brothers, who are gone
Fallen under the poachers' gun
Their breath stolen from existence.
The elephant knows death is near
Its ancient legs shake
There's no decision to make
Its wandering is done here.
And when it settles down for final sleep
Its majestic tusks will be stolen
Its face ripped open
Such is the fate of the last elephant.
So admire it as it walks, while it walks

Flying high on tiny wings.
I watched you,
Twenty minutes past,
Flying against the wind,
No rest in sight.
Your pointless flight,
They go so fast.
I envy you,
It is a shame really,
I hate you so.
You seek me out.
Is there some scent,
That makes you land?

I feel as though it speaks to me.
Little joyful whispers all around me, going through the thin air, dancing in multiple twisted ways.
It makes me feel at peace.
Like no little worry can bother me now, just for this little moment.
This little moment.
Believe me, I would had much rather stayed in it, but I must enter my home, now.
But my home will always somehow find it's way into the rain. "

We see so many,
without batting an eye.
We use them to describe things,
but, how do we describe them?
We've been told that milk is white,
grass is green,
dirt is brown.
But what if your blue,
is someone else's red.
if your green,
if their purple.
We have no way of knowing this.
how we perceive the world may be different,
than the true reality.

The darkened sky is set alight,
The sun coaxed from his rest,
Gentle beams bleed through the leaves,
Caress birds within their nests.
The grassy blades glow luminous,
Buds embrace the coming dawn,
With all the garden bathed in light,
Another day is born.
Birds, enlivened by the change,
Sun-warmed feathers, downy soft,
Begin, in throng, the chorus song,
Pure voices, heard aloft.
Such harmonious salutation,
Uplifts the sun, he reaches high,
And settles there among the clouds,
Glowing gold in a sapphire sky.
And then upon the window pane,
His light appears to vie,
Passing through, intending now,
To enlighten human eyes.
He meets a pair, dark misty blue,
They've now viewed ninety one,
Years pass by, but still enthralled,
By the rising of the sun.

Would you run?
Seeing the sky collapse,
Would you hide?
Hearing the screams of the scared,
Would you comfort?
Families being ripped apart,
Would you help?
Everything falls apart infront of you,
But would you stop it?
Would you use the hidden power within
to be confident enough,
To do something other than quiver in fear before
the ending world?
What would you do? If the world ended?

Star-shine whispers to the wind,
"come and dance with me"
Swaying with the grass
Leaning on the gentle breeze
Darkness tempts the fox,
"come and frolic with me"
Splashing in the mud
The song of the water
Crickets urge the frog,
"come and sing with me"
Glowing to the crescendo
Occupy the atmosphere
Moonlight beckons the wolf,
"come and cry with me"
Safe and warm
Tucked away in the corner
This lullaby hums to me,
"come and dream with me"

We come to grips,
With the distance,
That lies between.
Close in heart,
But far apart,
We learn to cope,
With Winter's Sorrowful Tale.
She brings the cold,
Ice, wind and snow,
She envelops us,
Deep in the dark.
We huddle and shiver,
We hide away,
From Winter's Sorrowful Tale.
Days will separate,
The two of us,
The Winter shall yield.
The world will melt,
The cold will cease,
And shall bring forth,
Beautiful, lovely, Spring.
Then only the Summer,
Cursed never to touch,
Winter's sorrowful tale,
Exposes the fates,
Of Spring and Fall.

Together, congregating in tactful squads
Cherry blossom petals litter the fresh dew grass
Their Pink bodies capture the burnings suns light
The wind slowly mingles with my snow white hair
And the chiming of birds fill my ears
Water splashes the sandy diamond shore
And another awe inspiring day begins
The perfect world parts
A new realization starts
The screen glitches flashing white
And pixels begin to reform
Feeling of calm is replaced with frustration
It is just a game, nothing more
No real experience, no real sense
Just a time stealer
To escape to a world
That is anything but
