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....

You're nothing but pinpricks in a sky
So black you shine
Turning it midnight blue
With a light of your own making.
Revered as the sun
Wishes placed upon
Carrying burdens across light years
Do they reach you?
Do you know?
You've been named
Made into constellations
By beings you'll far outlast
The stuff of stories
Myths and legends
You shine upon our heroes
Cast your favour on our wishes
Remind us to make them come true.
Far away compass
Your light is the guide
For weary travelers
Trekking through the darkness
Praying you will forever twinkle
To dissipate the black shadows
Slowly surrounding them.
So merrily a
Winter's Daylight, Spring's ShadowThe air still bites as cold as Winter,Winter's Daylight, Spring's Shadow1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
The shadows in the sky have yet to fade away.
The trees’ arms, lonely and bare
As Winter morphs into the form of Spring,
But what can we compare?
Light creeps into daylight ever so slowly
It’s pale glow rarely emanating across the sky.
The bay’s breeze is carried in
Raging war against sun rays—
Cold and warmth inseparable everyday.
But whether it’s Spring or Winter
Can we ever tell?
The first of
Spring, the season that shakes Winter off it’s back.

And waves crashing on the shore.

Air shifting and breezing and blowing
As Gaia falls through space and time.
Humanity pushes and grasps and grabs
Still, What are we
But land and sky and sea?

She swallows your pain, your pride
Any trace of ego is shattered in her jaws like dry leaves crumble at hand
She does not care for who you are, where you are from or what you have done
In Her eyes, Her children are equal
And as She has made you, She too can take back the ephemeral life
And return you to the soil of Her creation to once again be molded
Wisdom is respect for the bosom of the Mother deity
For Her love is an infinite spring that knows no end

The sign of coming torrent
The howling wind and crash of thunder
Both have warned of the coming storm
A tempest characteristic of the weather
Yet in dimensions heretofore unknown
In the village, people clamoured
If i had not stayed at home, i would thrill
They seldom look at the sky
The rain poured down in a cascade
The sound of the water lulled me
Outside my room, dullards shouted
It seems they never care enough
The silence in its wake is needed
My ears throbbed from their constant din
Nature has done me a good turn
In return, i shall let her go about her task

You are wandering around the outskirts of a town, sightseeing. You are tired and it is raining. You decide to seek shelter. As you run to find shelter, a strike of lightning illuminates an abandoned, old warehouse, quite close. You head towards it and run inside. You immediately close the remains of the door behind you. You look around the warehouse. It is near pitch-black. The holes in the ceiling illuminate a few areas around the place. You stumble around, atte

floating their way through the atmosphere.
Blocking the sun's rays,
plunging the surface beneath into darkness.
Flying and climbing through them,
the metal and plastic birds,
make their way through the air.
Once these puffs of moisture get full enough,
Once they cannot take any more,
They fall as a group.
A few stay behind,
knowing one day,
they too will make their fateful journey toward the surface.
Never to see the others again,
out of the puffs and onto the land.
With a cracking chorus of cacophonous clatter they hit,
smashing into the land,
their energy becoming one

Before the pale clouds
Are colored by pink pastels
Long before the eyes of humans
Witness the work done by night's creatures
A breeze disturbs the slumber
Of a young bud.
The petals droop
Just enough to peek out
And witness the veil around it
While the young ones slept.
The adults nearby
At first they stare
As the bud feigns sleep
Where dreams of plentiful summers
Spring forth for all the flowers.
As the young one pretends,
It succumbs to the truth until the sun awakens.

And warmer air comes in to take its place.
Coats to bundle up in are no use
Now that the sun has come back to shine upon us all.
Flowers bloom from the moist soil to greet the world,
Showing off their fancy and delicate features.
Animals awake from their long and restless nap,
As though they had never fallen asleep months before.
It all happens so fast, and before we know it,
We will be preparing for winter once again.

This everlasting sound.
I can hear it all around me,
It surrounds me.
First a little whispering,
Suddenly powerful and like a lions roar.
Do you smell the salty blossom?
This wild perfume.
I could smell it everyday,
If I'd visit the bay.
Sometimes just a breeze,
Then a scent screaming out the waves.
Can you feel the spume on your face?
This flattering hand.
I want to feel it gently,
It touches me so friendly.
Initially a warm caress,
At least almost a strike.
The ocean the water the endless sea.

that marks the dawn.
Long branch that tells
the long descending story.
The leaves that have seen all.
The journey of the birds
The flight of the birds
Under the willow's breath.
A lingering memory
stands long existent
on the tree's bark.
The last flame
licks the water's tips.
Only to be led into a cave,
and left with the bears roar.

or are you dancing in the rain?
When it storms
are you blowing the clouds away
or are you getting struck by lightning?
When lightning strikes
is someone always hurt

why mum cried
when I was young
with a cigar in her hand
the bags were puffy
underneath her eyes
i thought it was the weather
but she cried on sunny days, too
or when the rain cleared with a rainbow
as i got older
i cried, too!
there was a funny feeling
in my chest that hurt real bad
i would stare down at a picture of myself
the tears would go pitter patter
i never even knew why i cried
then, when i got to high school
mum was never home
always working, always busy
i would cry and cry
in front of the woods
behind our great, big house
i'd stare into the forest

The clouds hang low
Plentifully dotted across the sky
A phantasmagoric duochrome
Blue and white castles
Rows of wet, healthy green trees
Swamps and bogs
And plains, and farmhouses
All - very distantly - within sight of the city
With its pillars of white
Plants, robust, rustic
And fences, and we pass under a bridge
And glimpse a patch of trees, green and brown
And over that way, the dark forest
And we're heading that way
A lone dog walker
The curve of the road, I feel it
All of creation beneath us
And people playing soccer
And the burgundy fields
What secrets does the green forest hold?

through many forms and processes.
Erosion and corrosion,
Heat waves and blizzards,
tornadoes and tsunamis.
Earthquakes shake the ground,
Whirlpools swirl in the seas.
Tectonic plates moving below,
Clouds forming and moving above.
Volcanoes making islands,
The sea taking them back.
The world is fastly changing unnaturally.
Oil spills in the water,
Pollutants in our air.
Gum killing birds,
Plastic bags choking dolphins.
Chopping down trees,
Abusing what little fresh water we have.
Over using resources.
The world is always changing,
Naturally and unnaturally.
