Butterfly RisingButterfly Rising in Free Verse More Like This
She cries out into the stillness of the night:
"Why is this happening to ME?"
"Why are you hurting ME?"
"Why won't you leave ME alone?"
Her words float on the air, ascending upward,
then fall to the ground gently, as flakes of snow;
frozen tears from Heaven.
"Is anyone listening? Does anyone care?"
The heart grows cold, numb. Darkness beckons.
"Oh, just to sleep and never wake up!"
The constant pain. The ever-present need for
resolution, for closure.
But like an evil bird that refuses to return to the nest,
forsaking her own, so too relief keeps fleeing.
The noises in her head - a cacophony of confusion!
Unrelenting, unbearable, when will it end?
A Voice in the darkness, low and sweet, calling to her, beckoning her.
"Child, do you not know that you are loved?
Are you not aware that I hold your existence in the palm of my hand?
Like a butterfly you are to me.
Your broken wing; shall I not show pity?
I WILL heal your pain, I WILL nurtu

Chapter 1 Twister!
Morning came with a shock! Suddenly a stiff south wind struck Bufonida without so much as a warning. The trees began to sway violently to and fro, and the ground shook. A loud noise like that of a tempestuous sea deafened the ears of all those at the party. Someone called out:
“Take cover everyone,
darkened skies now cloud the sun.”
Joe and Hump couldn’t believe it. Their send-off party was turning into a disaster -literally! They both ran toward the creek, and upon reaching it dove in and waited to see what would happen. All around them things were flying through the air. Leaves, branches, dust, and even a few toads! It sickened their bellies to think that some might not survive this awful tempest.
After what seemed like an eternity, though in reality only about ten minutes had passed, Joe and Hump exited their shelter and looked around. Total chaos everywhere! In the distance they could hear the sound of weeping. They hopped tow

What a romp we've had the party was great,
the dancing, the song, and the cheer!
But right about now it's getting too late
for more food, more fun, and more beer.
Soon all the guests say their final goodbyes
and say thanks, give hugs, and the like.
The last two to leave are Sal and her guy,
time for cleanup, a bath, and goodnight.
As I climbed into bed I felt a strange bump,
it was warm, kinda lumpy, and weird.
I pulled down the sheets and here it was Hump,
a friend, an old buddy I'd hired!
Now look Hump I said the party's long done,
they've left, we've bathed, now we're tired.
Can't you see that it's now a quarter past one?
Time to go, take your leave, or you're fired!
I could see that my words were truly in vain,
his eyes closed, he went limp, and then snored.
I said to my wife let's not try again,
he'll sleep here, we'll sleep there, on the floor.
Affirmation (Dreams of a Prince)Affirmation (Dreams of a Prince) in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The days come and go as the earth spins around
and my life moves along to its end.
But while I am here I will stand on my ground
and fight for my family and friends.
I believe in myself and in what I believe
but at times I find that I'm stuck.
I want to do right but my thoughts make me grieve
when I think of all my bad luck!
Then at night I lay down and fall fast asleep
while my dreams swim around in my head.
I have to admit that my dreams can be deep
and quite often they fill me with dread.
Still, I know deep inside that I am who I am
and that nothing will cause me to fail.
to be a just and good king is part of my plan
to ensure my dad's vision prevails.

"Run, run, run little toad,
vain is your attempt to flee.
I'm a hunter supreme,
I'm quick and I'm mean,
today you'll be supper for me."
"Away, away, away evil hawk,
you'll never catch up with me.
I'm fast for my size,
I'm agile and wise,
I'll not be dinner you'll see."
"Hide, hide, hide little toad,
fine vision was granted to me.
You'll not get away,
though try as you may,
I see you there under that tree."
"Try, try, try evil hawk,
a hole I have found so I'm free.
I'm smarter than you,
this refuge will do,
today I'm so glad to be me!"
The Tormented ClownThe Tormented Clown in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
They'd come far and wide to see him perform,
for him to be careful just wasn't the norm.
He'd flip and flop and then roll on the ground,
he'd do crazy stunts when they were around.
The smile on his face was painted for them,
he loved to get laughs, all eyes were on him.
But when he was done at the end of the night,
He'd go home to his bed and turn on the light.
For at night there were ghosts and shadows to haunt,
he'd hear voices call out, it's him they would taunt!
If only they knew what his life really was;
a tormented clown, wouldn't that give them pause?
Rock Star!Rock Star! in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When he's on the stage they all scream with delight,
his persona is larger than life.
But when the concert is done at the end of the night,
he goes home to his kids and his wife.
They all think that his life is a rock-n-roll dream,
but oh, if only they knew.
He loads up his coffee with sugar and cream,
the same as the rest of us do.
Sure the money is great and his band-mates are cool,
but he's home at the end of the day.
This rock star is grounded, he's nobody's fool,
just happy to watch his kids play.
Now I know you will say that it doesn't make sense,
that rock stars are heroes and such.
But to him all that stuff is just a pretense,
such a life doesn't interest him much!

Flying through the sky on your mighty horse Sleipnir, leading the Wild Hunt, inspiring awe and fear. Or did I see YOU flying through the skies with your reindeer, led by Rudolph, hunting for chimneys?
Are you the Allfather, or Father Christmas? The god of wisdom, or wise old St. Nick? Why did you sacrifice one of your eyes, was it for knowledge and glory? Your poor vision requires that you now wear spectacles, does it not? You were bearded, old and gray then; you have not changed! Your long blue traveling coat has been replaced with a red one. You always insisted on wearing that crazy old hat, you still do.
We do so wonder about Frigg, your lovely wife. We hear she now has a new name, Mrs. Claus. Does she still ride with you through the skies to Valhalla, or is she content to wait for you at the North Pole? Yes, from your grand throne Hlidskjalf you observe the sons of men, are they being naughty or nice? There you have at your disposal the Svartalfar, those loyal and mischievous dw

Soon this old world will come to its end.
Yet worry not, for then, only then,
can peace and love forever endure;
a new world of hope, its coming is sure!
Never to sorrow or cry out in pain
for the loss of a child, ever again!
The blessing of Jah will make all things new.
Yes, I want to live there, how about you?

"FOR THE WORLD IS HOLLOW, AND I HAVE TOUCHED THE SKY"
All of my life I have struggled;
reality vs. fantasy.
I have lived here in this bubble;
no one alive will listen to me.
They call me the 'ghoul-faced madman'.
If I could just get them all to see,
we're dwelling here in a tin can;
floating along through space endlessly.
"Lock him up! Throw away the key!
Yes, secure him behind bar and door.
Ignore the dreamer, let him be;
don't listen to his rants anymore!"
If only they'd just ask me why,
I'd tell them right straight to their face:
For the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky...
it's all a grand illusion; we're lab rats in this place!
