Constellations offer a glimpse at antiquity
And an airplane crosses my view
For so long only Daedalus flew
My life may come and go
but the stars have more to say, you know
Alone in a meadow long after sunset
Viewing the heavens above, two suddenly met
When the storm came the stars went away
Only to return again in their timeless way

Upon the sleeping world below.

Because the world has a perspective of its own
Because there are places no one has gone
Because ancestors saw the same stars differently
Because constellations move and change
Because a night flight gets one just a bit closer
Because even in the wilderness there is a story above you
Because clouds and rain come at different times for everyone
Because clear weather is a chance to look up to nature

*Note* If you comment your option, I will reply to keep the story going. You can also combine options.
You are walking through the jungle, exploring. Suddenly, you hear a strange 'snoring' noise. You follow it's general direction and as you approach the source, a sleeping Nidoqueen, it begins to smell bad. REALLY bad. You observe it for a while, to figure out why it is emanating such a stench. You find out. It's farting, long and loud. Quite common for a poison type though so this does not surprise you. You remember that you have rope and tape in your bag, i

A Bank of day,
With Ruby Trousers hurried on,
A Wave of Gold.
Some scarlet patches on the way,
A sweep of Gray.
A little purple-- slipped between--
A slash of Blue

So cool, and yet, I am warm.
This is my true peace.
I am in the field.
The trees and the wind gossip.
I am in heaven.
I am lifted by the wind.
I fly higher and higher -
It is my special dream.
I watch the clouds go by;
I watch the stars at night.
I feel the ancient energies.

As it bounces the branches and penetrates the leaves
It dances with foliage as only she sees
In a bottle if possible stolen straight from the trees
How can we capture a ray of sunlight
A beam of such warmth whose glow is so bright
The chill would be scared if only she might
Have a small baby star to hold with her tonight
How can we capture the sight of a cloud
The shapes that they form create beauty abound
She watches all day neither making a sound
Tis etched in her mind as if grown from the ground
How can we capture the birds serenade
The beat of their wings matching the sounds that they’ve

The Calm After the StormThe snow has fallen.The Calm After the Storm2 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
The white hills and barren trees
Reflect the Sun's light so beautifully.
It is the calm after the storm -
The rainbow after thunder clouds.
I feel so joyous, I must sing aloud!
There is silence until I hear
The hills and trees
Echo my playful melody.
It's then I realize
That I am NEVER alone:
The forest is the place I can always call home.

And keeps us all alive and well.
The Flames' light dances in the night
Keeping the children from crying in fright.
The Soil gives us Vegtables and Fruit,
That we may eat of it and be filled.
The Metals of the Earth
Are used to give us Home and Hearth.
The Streams murmer their songs
And dance with the Sun's rays and Moon's beams.

flowers, all kinds of plants i do not know of
and bugs and flies going and rushing somewhere in their own world
It must be interesting for the old cut trees
who knows what they've witnessed at night
who knows what they witness at day in the world of these insects
it must be fun, wish i could be them
even thought one day i'll be crashed or used or burned.

When sun shines bright
I feel everything alright.
If clouds cover the sky
and after come to rain,
my soul feels a bit shy
as if joy sometimes is vain.
Moon ends this day
in a black wideness
and all I can say
is “My life isn’t senseless”

A winged creature soft as it is beautiful.
Often she speaks without words, for her clever smile says it all.
She leaves my otherwise booming voice in awe while I listen in for the less than populous tweets that hush my lips.

The sky turns gray
There is no color
The world is monochromatic
To survive you must be a darkness fanatic
Enormous thorns penetrate poor Mother Earth
Humans milked her for all she worth
Decrepit and dry
Acid tears of anguish she cry
Her children abused her
Forsake and misused her
But for them her everything she would lend
Backwards and forwards she would bend
She loved her children till the very end
But father time, full with fury to the core
Left his family frozen forever more
