about watching television outside.
It is possibly the ultimate defiance.
Over there, rebels have flipped off officials,
they have fornicated with machines
and they have worn shirts like flags.
But here, revolutionaries have
ripped the binding dress off of mother earth
they have stuck their thirsty tongues
in the magnetic air of steel and wind
and they have swallowed the sovereign
waters of Calypso.
Gaia could not weep,
because her throat was plugged
by the sharp middle finger
of electric sockets and wires.

This is my summer illusion...
To behold the very sight
of a youthful fairy's night.

Hoping to see something
Looking back at me.
But its just echoes
Of dead and dying
Suns and worlds.
Nothing really cares.
There is no design,
No grand plans to
Make the universe spin.
There's only darkness,
Suffocating and cold,
Consuming the light.

His words are folded inside.
A shudder of spring and antennae
I try to whisper hope into his leaves:

Winter had swarmed him and all at once
the buzz in my heart ceased its
desire and became fixated
on the space between
being rooted and setting him free.

Seeking the magic of the universe through the black hole

Making here a light chain of silver, she

that I don't have to last forever,
I've just got to beat the dawn.

The gentle whisper of the breeze.
Frogs croak, Birds sing,
The water reflects the warmth of the Sky.
Calm breathing, light sighing,
The boy and the girl lie calmly in the grass.
Midday Mildness, Soft shade,
Trees provide the greatest shields.
Light shifting, kind yawning,
The Lovers stir in their sleep.
A summer day to never forget.
A nature orchestra providing the lightest music.
A day shared, Hands linked,
The lovers sleep in peace.

that occurs on a trip to Washington,
when the dark is constant and the trees jog
like legends alongside the highway;
as his eyes fall half-sleep but his senses remain
taut and vigilant, sweating on the wheel,
pitching nerve to the sound of branches cracking,
bristling under his wind-torn jacket;
the time of evening when the sunset rests
at its very highest, bright and sudden as Heaven,
an aureate glow around the birdsongs,
the stench of roadkill muted by a golden frost;
a taste of nirvana,
an instruction of faith,
the blatant existence of God,
lost as soon as he rounds the bend.

He appears so lost, and doesn't know what to do...
so he looks with searching eyes up to the great blue.
He thinks and he ponders about what may come,
and while the heavens are uncaring, the wind starts to hum.
A spirited dirge on fluttery wings
is the only clue of what the future brings.
Its whispers tell of ages past,
and how the time has flown so fast.
The little soldier closes his eyes,
letting his heart say its last goodbyes.
Wrinkles tell of experiences taking their toll,
and wearily speak of the years they stole.

Despite the evidence against me
Even with the mountain of facts
I still believe in you.
You’re still a planet to me.
A dwarf, so tiny compared to the rest
Like an ant to a human being.
Out of the nine planets
In our vast solar system
You, Pluto, are my absolute favorite.
You’re the underdog
The one that everybody picks on
And I’ll be here to cheer you on
As you continue to show the world how
Awesome you can be.
Screw the scientists
Forget what people may say
Pluto, I’ll always love you
Forever and ever.
Long live the greatest planet that ever existed.

I like to think
About just how lucky I am.
How lucky I am
To have food
And a roof over my head.
How lucky I am
To have a beating heart
And air in my lungs.
How I lucky I am
To even have been born.
Out of every sperm and egg,
And every unknown miscarriage,
I survived. We all did.
That in itself is amazing.
Then add on that life itself
Is amazing and wonderful.
How many systems
Must work in tandem
To keep me alive?
If one single DNA strand
Were to replicate wrong
My life would be irreparably damaged.
If my temperature is off
By just the variance between in and out,
These things astound me.
A Summer's FantasyWhen the wind called no moreA Summer's Fantasy2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
The greens rustled craving songs
And the shadows of the blue trees smiled.
There was a fire horse racing the light, burning
And the ice birds migrating to the north
And the butterflies grew double wings, crystal clear.
The rainbow fairies danced in tribal bonfires
And the hiccuping elves celebrated their queen
The silver wolves moaned at the full moon.
There was a golden parrot telling stories to the pirates
While a stone skinned princess danced with a sand skinned prince
As the purple sun tried to beat the orange sun with it's shine.
Yet, my greatest fantasy was you.
