Colored droplets of fire
Light up the sky...
For a few minutes,
They kissed the night...
A breath-taking wonder;
Bursting with cracks and sizzles -
Wishes can be made upon an ember,
Before fading into the dusk...
Glanced upon in awe,
They briefly illuminate the heavens -
Seeming to reach for infinite space...
If only we could reach as high,
To grasp the mystery of the stars....

shut up from conventional loneliness
i empty myself
of time and you
leave myself an indeterminable chunk of morning
a life behind me and a world ahead

The full moon shines down
Upon the sleeping world below.

White crystal floors melt,
Dark impending skies recede
And Boreas’ frozen rage fades.
After Pandora’s horrors have left,
What remains bursts forth to flourish,
Spring is set free from her prison cell,
With new hope life can breathe once more.
After the heavens have blessed the Earth,
The skies smile down,
Their azure faces beaming,
Whilst carpets of viridian return the favour.
Under Ra’s kindly gaze,
Mini kings set to work,
Tending their lawns with pride and zeal,
Whipping up the heavenly scent of cut-grass as they go.
All around them lie seas of violet,
From which erupt fireballs of c

Sticking to thick mud,
Creeping around puddles,
Pools formed by crystal water
Reflections of blue and white,
Clouds clearing above,
Yellow sun shining bright ahead,
Clear air and green leaves,
Wet from the recent storm
Fresh breeze kissing branches,
Blades of sweet grass,
Bending from droplets,
Tipping them over,
Bowing to the dark earth,
Chirps of perching,
Birds stretching their damp wings,
Sweeping from branches,
Rabbits hopping from burrows,
Dandelions swaying soft,
From butterfly patterns,
Air lifting up high,
Tiny wings spiraling up,
Lost in the luminous sky,
So dazzling and vivid,
As rainbows form crossways,

By Old Dame.
I hear the soft melodic tweeting amongst the dense bushes.
A whole world hidden behind branches and leaves.
I see you there Sparrow, where be your king.
At rest I am told he is.
The sunlight does not breach their soft little court.
Bicker and badger they give talk of the realm.
I see you there sparrow, jesters and fools.
Never do they rest – I am told.
I watch as you climb high into the tall and mighty trees.
Your cheerful fluttering hides your true struggles.
I see you there Sparrow, as Icarus to the sun.
Endless the sea of their sky.
Never alone for long they dance from branch to branch.

Devour the timeworn trees
The million degree blaze rises up, bound for the heavens
Maniacal flames of lively intensity
Lap over singed timber
Nothing is safe
Regardless of how lovely the forest once was
In the end
Everything is a smoldering mess of remains
Remains of what once was
Never Experienced LoveWhat is this feeling?Never Experienced Love1 hour ago in Free Verse More Like This
Deep inside me locked inside my heart
I never felt it before
It feels like I can do anything
What is this feeling?
It came when this boy passed me
It has me worried
Because I never experience it before
During night I feel it less but when I dream about him
It is like my heart is on fire
Have I ever loved?
I cannot remember when
But I remember this feeling
it comes again this time stronger
Its strength is strong so strong that it almost lashes out
I can't keep it down
After a while I can't stop smiling
Then everyone knows what I am feeling
But the guy
He just thinks I am weird
I try to keep it caged bu

Among flickering lights
glimpses in the ocean
hit the peak of waves
and been known by an eye in the sky,
big enough for us all to see, except me,
as i am now, like the pebble,
gone off with the sea that runs out with the sun in the horizon which i could have sworn to touch..
Spring DaysThe sun crests the horizon, bathing the streets in morning glow.Spring Days4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Our few trees bloom bright flowers, as the winds begin to blow.
The slower ones their branches spout a small bud here and there,
The day’s alive with good vibes, a smell of beauty in the air.
To see the clouds swim by without a trouble in the world.
The look of pure joy and happiness in the eyes of a little girl.
Lovers sit by lakes and whisper nothings to please the ear.
Someone breathes “i love you” barely loud enough to hear.
Imagery formed in cloudy skies create artwork for all to see.
Any imperfections nonexistent to the minds of you and me.

Love echos through them
Your touch on my skin
Comforts me when I'm lonely
The tickle of your whiskers
Wakes me in the morning
The smell of your fur
After basking in the sunlight
Warm and peppery
Makes me smile
Purr, soft and deep
Your strength emanating
You demand for nothing in return
My love, my life
You are cat
JadeHow can we capture the refreshing cool breezeJade5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
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

SummerSummer is a sun,Summer16 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is bright, it shines –
It shows us the way to live,
It shows us life.
It brings us colour –
And makes us joyous.
It comes and goes –
The way does summer,
It flows in us,
It is within us.
But it will set –
And go away.
But we will remember,
Those days of summer,
That brought us joy.
It will always stay –
With a hope –
And will return.
The way does summer,
The way does sun.

but that is not what the wind
howls through the trees,
that is not what the rain
drums into the dirt.
Winter still fights the sun,
clings to life.

Twisting and churning into cackling, crackling
Black snakes, spitting venom
Into her eyes, mouth, skin.
Talons claw at her everywhere;
Digging, ripping, scarring.
Great wounds track her body,
Tracking her every move
And her every yearn for a love
That never comes.
She no longer weeps with water, but oil,
Forming running rivers of
Poison that no longer sounds like a word.
How much more must we
Kill our Mother
To learn the meaning of that word
And make her
