Look up and pray.
And beaming through the sky.
Make a wish,
Before it closes it's eyes
And forgets you all together.
Since that is the moral,
Quick and forgotten.
Just like we all will be,
Once we close our eyes.
So be fast with your choice,
Since once it comes round
Again, we shall
All be fertilizer for the
Grass to consume.

Maybe it's a wide field of evergreen grass
surrounded by the lurking forest trees,
where all you could inhale was the damp leaves on the ground
and pines from the trees above, an intoxicating smell
that leaves you high after the rainstorm
Maybe it's in an oasis located within a desert,
however, it is not scorching ablaze,
but it's warm and you feel your skin tingling
a whole new sensation is evolving inside of you
and the warmth wraps you up in a blanket of sunshine
Or maybe it's at the peak of a mountain
where you reign over the world on your solid throne of boulders
the invisible wind is your invitation of escape
and while the slight breeze passes by
you begin to shiver with an adrenaline rush
I could be wrong and you might be right, but tell me dear, what is heaven like?

Like so many other things.
Calm, gentle, soft, kind
Feathering over my skin.
Rough, wild, sharp, angry
Destroying all in its path.
Air is all of these things
And so many, many more.
Its the pulse of my lungs,
The storm lashing my home,
The thing I need to live,
Though it slowly kills me.
To harness it takes skill,
To use it takes vision.
Take the invisible and
Make it completely tangible.
That is the basis of me,
The core of who I am.
How Smiles Were Born"How Smiles Were Born"How Smiles Were Born4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
By: Ulrich J Edelstein
Deep underneath the crystals lies beautiful gems of starlight.
The temptations to capture them are beyond imagining.
Only few have been able to reach into the jaws of the creature to possess these magnificent stones.
Underneath the blue swirls
And the reflection of moonlight's grace,
Are the pearls of time.
They have been sprung up onto those who are fortunate.
They have been formed to create a crescent moon of happiness.
If not taken care, they grow weary and decay.
They crackle and shatter
And no one admires them any longer.
It is important for them to be handled with gentleness.
For the future can be presented by gleaming smiles.
For all to admire, for all pearls to aspire to be.
That is why it's important to smile everyday and take care of your teeth.

When light hit the water
a supernova dance of
scurrying dust swayed
in their amber infinite.
When the wind tapped,
the waves flapped their feathers
and spread into
a migration of curly black lines
on a child’s drawing,
choppy pattern after choppy pattern,
wave conforming to wave
into a wallpaper covering
algae, flotsam, dead bricks, dead stone,
until the irregular birds changed the flow.
Be it the duck that draped a dress
behind in a V-shaped groove,
or the pudding-plump coots
who gently honked, imprinting
flat bubbles on water.
They live in the reflection of Life.
Fringed by feathers like icy mountaintops
and dead fish bloated on pollution,
an Irn Bru bottle imitates the nature it killed.
An orange bread packet is ignored by the mallard
for the tragedy it brought to town.
It’s a flat town, a houseless town,
but still a moving community of
twig islets and breadcrumb empires.
Fringing on their utopia is us,
us standing still from dry grey pavement
CreationLove, Passion, CreationCreation18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Art is everywhere
Love is Everyone.
Ideas are their.
Those words just limit the ideas of creation.
It not a few word, but many words.
It takes time to create passion, to create love, to create masterpiece.
16 hours are some of my artwork takes, but that is just an artwork.
Time is a key element, but nothing is rush within a day.
Maybe not a week, but instead many many weeks.
Love take a slow time sometime, though very few happen in a day,
Love can take years to make a creation happen.
But creation is not solely on love or art, but many more.
Creation is an ideal, for life, for nature, for space and many others.
Creation is all over.
That happen within a day, hours, minutes, seconds, million seconds.
The time is irrelevant, because every second is where creation happy happen.
From a single blade of grass being grown, to an ideal being taught of.
The secret to creation is that it never ends and it will never ends.

shattering but physically

It sheds daggers,
mere splinters besides blades,

This coldness penetrates Her.
This chest contains a secret
like any other:
a ruby coalesced with worms,
hugging it warm and comfortable,
inspiring it to continue its beat.
This coldness penetrates Her.
Yet, when Frost comes,
these snap and flail,
becoming tentacles of torture
set to strangle the offenders,
those who sought to
suffocate the beat,
those who sought to
make the precious ruby
lose inspiration, lose hope, lose heart,
within the bosom of the world.

Watching rain drops fall down the window.

The rain it's stars.
Some remain in the sky while others fall down to the ground.
Shooting stars made of water and tears.
Piercing the ground below with it's wish.
Sparking it with pale midnight light.
Rain is the falling stars.
Rain is shooting stars only meant to fall.
Lightning is a wish never meant to be.
Thunder is the shouts from the heavens.

Packs of wolves chase
The heavenly figure
Navigating the Northern Lights
Hunting the Latecomers
The weakest who are left behind
Be captured by her
Is the end
Is the law
Of twists and turns
The cyclic repeats
We need to keep us warm
In the south she comes and goes
But in the north
She ever remains
For the lost we can not cry
Our tears would just freeze
The death of my ancestors
The birth of my offspring
Write my passage on the ice
We need to hunt, work, Fly, dig in
Breed, educate, care and protect
In the land of winter
In the plains of wind
We here for forever
We must stay
Our modest existence
That camouflager in the snow
From what I know more
Cold, concealed and steady
The whale of aurora
Says I have to stay

the time has come that burns you out of your making
beating its song of bright, that tiny little heart beats its spark of bright into your new life
let you live,
let you take breath with warmth
little bundle of fur,
show your burning light and let it shock it's passion into your soul
a passion that grows every second,
a passion that grows like a fire
now that you arrived in this life
fire plays with its gentle touch to warm your growing spirit
fur so new but so soft,
darkness and silence still in your eyes and ears
a big world waits for you to see it
a big world waiting for you to hear it
a big world waiting for your bright view
your eyes are shut,
but soon they will open,
a fire grows inside your body and soul
a bright future waits for you

AutumnWhere has autumn gone?Autumn1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
That thick knit time of burnt earth hues
and tow path walks in sturdy shoes,
herons jowled like pterandon sedately loping
overhead, the mushroom breath of mulch,
of death at its orderly digestion
and the migration
of backyard birds, their shaped goodbye
like cuneiform across the sky, the calligraphy of flocks
and crane flies clinging to the walls and fibrillating
spider halls transformed by dew and early frost
to platinum cathedrals
and kicking through the leaves
and searching under shedding trees
for horse chestnut burs, their spiked green rinds
like deep sea mines or sci fi pods
and, hiding in their creamy beds,
so many burnished conkers
and my, how the high
shellac of nut brings back
the covetousness of childhood,
all those pennies for the guy, lumber for the bonfire
and sparklers writing figure eights
in raw and rippling sulfur light.
Samhain, old autumn time, that meshing,
clashing pagan time of fire and earth
and wind and rain.

bringing life and liberty

I watch the leaves turn colors and shades of flawed beauty
Saddened when they lose their way and fall to the harsh earth
And when all of them are helpless and broken on the ground...
I turn from my window to wait as the seasons change.
Ivory flakes tumble to the baren world
My eyes follow them with the yearning of a starved stray
I cannot look as my fake friends dissapear on the floor
There is no trace of them other than my memories
I must turn away to wait again for the seasons to change.
Sitting on a sodden roof I stare at the fresh world below
There is nothing like the smell of a bright morning's dew
Or the look of emerald grass dappled with flowers that look like rainbow drops
Sadly there is a rumble in the distance and the sky is turning gray
So I must leave again and turn away from the world as the seasons change.
Golden sunbeams filter through the translucent curtains
Spreading nothing but a warm embrace to everything a
