RainLooking into the sky,Rain1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
I watch every tear fall
ever so slightly from the heavens.
"Why are you sad?"
The sky answers with a thunderous boom.
The sun hides away,
almost as if it were afraid of the sky.
It's so cold.
I stand in the rain,
in wait for the sun to come out again.
In the meantime though,
I let the tiny drops of ice
shatter on my bare skin.
Warmth no longer exists.

it carries on the cobalt throne
the ghosts are singing in the winds
as Banshees gather dusk’s fell dirge
life in shadow and joy in night
subdued colours feed the mind
under stars the spirit wanders
as the rain taps gently down
clouds are dancing in the heavens
bringing life and liberty
can you feel the Goddess tremble
as she sheds her sacred tears?

like breaking hearts,
shattering but physically
when caressed by firm feet.
It sheds daggers,
mere splinters besides blades,
that were stabbed
into Gaia’s breast.
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.

scatter patterns in the dark,
dance lights on the ceiling.
Shhh, listen, listen.
Flutter, flitter, lights flicker
Their beauty cascades;
I can see trees stretching far beyond the sky,
waves of clouds tickle their branches
and lick the leaves.
Glorious oak and willows laugh amongst themselves
and movement from the flitter, flutters
turn into dancing beneath the trunks of the old ones.
Their seductive, innocent eyes smile at me,
I join the circle, stumbling as I try and keep up.
The mossy paths are damp with dew,
soothing my aching feet from the long journey.
Their glorious, transclucent wings of iridescent colors kiss the air.

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,

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

Into my tender palms
Versus tying wrist
Down to the tracks.
Before the train even comes
I'm already in pain.
Seeing your face again
Brings tears to my eyes.
Why come back to me
After leaving me alone?
Come to watch my death,
And help me get there?
Your eyes hold a sparkle
Of a hungry demon;
You're smile burns
Waiting to consume my soul.
As steel slides across
Wrist made of butter.
You lick your lips
Waiting for your meal.
You'll never get your feast
I already sold my soul.
My laughter roars out
As I watch you.
My death was quick,
I won't allow yours to be.
You'll starve and become
A dinner for the buzzards.
It's rather ironic
How a vulture like you
Became a meal
For your brother.

It’s a serious matter to be bitten.
I can still feel my hand numbing.
Its fate will now be written.
That firewood can only laugh.
It left the fight unharmed.
It didn't even break in half.
I was left profoundly alarmed.
That firewood will soon perish.
I intend to set it all aflame!
I roared acting all bearish.
You did this! You’re to blame!
That firewood will soon be ash.
I strike a match, then throw it down.
I watch as it goes up in a flash.
The flame engulfs and starts to drown.
That firewood will be gone forever.
I jump and down with glee.
I finally accomplished that endeavor.
That nuisance is gone and I am free!
Trick's Lullaby"Trough miles of thornTrick's Lullaby5 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
there sat one single rose.
It was broken and wilted
it was fading away.
Until one day there came a dragon who planted a garden
there were colors of many that danced in the wind.
Though none could grow
near the single rose.
It's thorns would force away
anything that tried to touch the rose.
One day grew two flowers of red and blue
They wove through the thorns
they passed all the leaves
until they found the rose.
It sat there, dying, it's petals falling one by one.
The flowers grew around it, pushing away the thorns
and letting the sun through.
And the rose bloomed
and it shone purple
and it grew.
The rose looked out over the garden, at what it had missed
while locked in the thorns.
And it cried.
It cried in happiness.
It cried in fear.
It had never been here.
And the other flowers grew around it's stalk
and they bloomed beside it.
And the rose was happy"

Und der Horizont lodert leise,

Der letzte Blick die fernen Kronen trifft,

Ja, es scheint die Welt würde dort verschwinden,
sich in der Ferne nur der endlose Nebel zu befinden
und Licht und Schatten ineinander fließt,
Dunkelheit über uns vergießt.

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.

now that summer's drowse is done?
That riotous time of shifting hues
and country walks in sturdy shoes -
heron 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 arrowheads across the sky, the cuneiform of flocks
and crane fly clinging to the walls
and densely woven 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 with
their spined 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
kindling for the bonfire
and sparklers writing figure eights
in hissing, spitting sulfur light.
So now let autumn come
now that summer's drowse is done:
That meshing, clashing pagan time

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.
