slender brown skeletons bear their life-giving factories
thick brown spines burrow deeper
water rolls and falls over ancient pressed earth
taking some with it on its journey
challenging the fish with its never ending agility
dainty aviators alight on tall grass
their iridescent bodies scatter sun
the light which makes the whole place glow
little skaters skate on melted, moving ice that bends to their will
they skate in groups, they scatter when approached
their long insect legs splayed
small birds whistle for attention
black-feathered scavengers boast about themselves
shrill cries come from birds of prey
bare-headed vultures are silent, only watchful and observant
New MoonI saw garish eyes of the skiesNew Moon2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sun and Moon in the ties
The husky east wind blew
Playing that dusky tune
The day effaced itself
Extinguishing it's hearth
The evening mourning time
When day and night combine
Then I saw springing stars
Blooming in nightly tars
Falling from their affixion
Burning out from the friction
Looking like fiery slashes
Turning out into ashes
I didn't make a wish
Not to feel too selfish
White clouds dyed black by night
Covered the sky ruining the sight
Lower and lower the moon went down
Behind the horizon to finally drown
Like into attar to bless a new morn
When Sun peeked afar, a new day was born

The StormBeware the wind that will tear the feathers from your puckered, grey skin.The Storm1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
It may blow out the fire inside your belly if you’re not careful.
Ferocious grey creature, grumbling but not yet making up her mind.
Release the mewling kraken for air before it begs at the door to be let in.
Thick globs of ink fall, reluctant at first but soon gaining confidence.
The creature has grown angry at the ants scuttling through her fur
And bellows her fury to the world as she tries to split it.
And she pours stain into the fissures.

swift across valley and through meadow home,
from hells breadth to paradise they will find
a green haven and ground rich of earth and loam.
Ceaselessly they carry on with quiet hope
stumbling over broken bodies and bleached bones,
past the sun's gaze into the hallowed night they lope
the meek will fall, listen to those howls of mourning.
By each blade of grass, over each tumbled river stone
the wind carries fleeting promises of nature's scent...
Seasonal SoliloquyAutumn wends its weary waySeasonal Soliloquy1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
To Winter's house of solitude;
Dark thought and barren branches
Lie waiting for October's temperate charms
To have fallen.
And in the house of silence,
The hush of coastal fog:
The suspense of snow.
Velvet and firelight
I yearn for bright festivity
Richness and warmth
To clothe the bleak bones
Of the Empty Season.
The windows of my soul
Have no view —
A chrysalis of cold.

Once its dead its over,

Its storm striking days apart,
And thaw changing fate.
Eternal BreathA world lush with forestry,Eternal Breath1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Animals mingling amongst the brush,
Breathing with ease for millennia;
A world thick with smoke,
People working day and night,
Suffocating for decades;
A world where the smoke thins,
Streets bustling with people,
Able to breath once again;
Worlds where smoke is long gone,
Civilization thriving along with nature,
Breathing in peace for eternity.

On a slope of emerald
Soon to white
Your clouds drift and shine
Down on this earthly paradise
Like silver etchings
Of: "I love you all without conditions, My silly children!"
Across a true blue sapphire swath
A blanketing of secure jewelry floating by
Thrown over a sleeping child
Who dreams playing unafraid
In forests and oceans
Your hand has shaped
Who could live without some clouds?
Reminders of unconditional love
Floating along and above
Delicate silver etchings
On a sapphire sky
Masquerading as clouds
Blotting the full nature of the Sun's fire
Prolonging our vision so we might read
With our own eyes Your true message
"I love you all without conditions, My silly children!"
As read from an emerald slope
Soon to be white.

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.

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. "

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?

No one can find them there
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"

Will it run frenzied through the yard,
Sticky and panting?
Or tramp through the woods,
Until its skin is dappled with leopard shadows?
Will it catch on the wind,
Bound carelessly over the waves,
Only to dip slowly into the water,
One foot, and then,
Will it roll in with the thunder?
Or smear itself in clay?
A woman may be more lovely and temperate.
But whose place is it to say?
Moonlit MireShifting shadows skulking in the shadeMoonlit Mire1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
Leaves lift and loft above.
A cry creeps out of the silence
Closing closely upon your ears.
Shaken hands and stirred fears
Be what bother the sleeping bears.
Fear no fathom for thy sake
Lest lupines leap and tear
Flinging flesh and fur and Drool and dredge.
For whole wanes the moon in the sky
And a woe-some wail
Let's loose lingering desire
For the werewolf hunts
in the moon lit mire!

Rugged, wild, alive.

Past splintered-shattered rocks,

Simple, amazing, alive.
These WoodsThese woods are dark,These Woods1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This
The surface is so solid and so thick,
Never letting any light surpass them.
These woods are cold,
The temperature drops and drops but no snow ever falls,
The touch of the bark making them seem like ice.
These woods are foggy,
The smoke that erupts from the ground,
Makes it seem like your stuck here forever.
These woods are beautiful,
The leaves blow with the wind,
Holding hands and making dancing colors across the sky.
These woods are kind,
Always helping you find your way,
Whether you're lost or not.
These woods are home,
Home to not only wild plants and animals,
But home to me and my family.
Ocean WaterThe waves rocked beneath me in a lulling way, and soon I found myself falling into the pattern of the water. Now I was one with the water, the sky, the earth; floating around, my head clear of any thoughts, my body still but warm. I closed my eyes sleepily. I reached my hand down and felt the water's surface lightly graze my fingertips as I began to stroke the waves.Ocean Water1 week ago in Free Verse More Like This

A Night SkyWhat can't I see?A Night Sky1 week 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
