I am still while the world turns beneath me. The weight of my sorrow does not slow its spin, for soft words cannot calm a tumultuous sea. I do not listen to the wind twisting the trees
Under a tree I sat Near a big Buddhist vat Leaves were scuttling Ants were rustling I heard the tree cry I didn't knew why?
Dear friend, How are you? I must confess, That mine eyes have not seen, Your beautiful tress. Of green leaves, And long boughs, And fresh, gentle touch. I miss you,
“It will be fun,” they said. One day in, and I was already close to dead. This adventure I was undertaking was supposed to last a week. From my pores, sweat was starting to leak.
From this decrepit window I see the clouds flash brilliance Orange and purple and pink, Colors so foreign to this tiny room, Colors that make you think From this sorry window
Enormous, silent flashes Fill the arid night Lightning so bold it reveals clouds For many an arid mile One, two seconds apart A jovial dance Performed on a stage
I thought your face was covered in snow I tried to find it, but it’d never show Old soul, from which I learned a lot Never told me how to take care of my heart
Can you hear me now? If you can’t I can only wonder how Why is it the only way to get your attention?
Dear howling winds, you whistle through tiny cracks of our small, whithered home songs of your journey from further out miles. Take me with you as you pass by. Pick up my soul,
You're like the lightning. A quick, bright, illuminating flash, Shining a spotlight on all that is, and is not.
moonlight is so bright but what does it sound like? it sounds like the nights where you muffled cries it sounds like the nights where there was nothing to do but sigh but sometimes
the sky and i are alike you know, we burn shades of red and shades of blue with purples in between thoughts are unclear like the moon and the stars hidden from view polluted with darkness
River, flowingSoftly it drifts.Hands grazing surfaceBreaking the pattern, rhythm, and beat as it shifts.Do you feel the weight of its life?Between your toes?
Dearest Captivity, What is about you that is so enrapturing? Is it the sparks? The flames? The way you blaze? Are you a reminder? Or perhaps...
I am made of fireworks, and electricity, and chemical reactions. I radiate warmth as strong as a heatwave in the desert. I taste like pop-rocks fizzing on your tongue,
Time is considered relative for most, But for me it’s a distance: 331 meters. Every portion of my unterminating existence Spent in travel.
Ever wanna just get away,find a place to stop and think? Somewhere alone with your thoughts, so in your mind you can sink. Soak in the beauty of your surroundings,and enjoy the view.
Dear Troy, I want to take you back Back to that October morning When you rode on the back of that flatbed, freezing, trembling Remember how the vicious air whisked against your face
Its veil that surrounds me, Soft and secure, In thin, sleepy wonder, The world is obscure. The thick air heralds thoughts Of misty ship moorings A sloop, gliding in to rest
Hungrily it devours, It prances through the forest Untamed and free Spreading it’s cruel fury. Dancing, it reaches, Caresses the sky. It’s flickering blaze a graceful ballet,
The angry skies on a sleepless night, Rolling thunder, flashes of light, A tireless battle midst roiling clouds. A quick parry, a sudden thrust, Their booming voices,
Lazily humming, bumbling from flower to flower. A little here, a little there, Helpful little worker bees Collecting nectar for the hive. Tiny fuzzy bodies landing gently on soft petals
Free and flowing,It glides along the banks,On a journey of it’s own Sometimes rushing,At other times calm and glassy.
Night Dappled and worn through the excesses of time, modest moonlight filters in through the gauze of the dancing curtain
Dear love, Your beauty is indisputable. Your love is infinite. Your voice is that of the song bird. Your scent is mesmerizing.
To Fear, Born side by side, but it takes a life of its own. How can you be so cruel, and play your host like a fool? You see the damage you cause, and yet never put a pause on the over-thinking, the inevitable sinking.
If only you could see,My favorite place to be.A place where I can rest Is nature at it’s best. The water ripples near So loud it's all you hear.A secret place to be, A spot made just for me. In shallow waters still,To touch would send a chill.A sh
What's a hermit crab? A creature lacking a shell. It needs a shelter.
It's getting darker. A tornado tears through lands, But I feel so bad. The impact is colossal. I wonder if it's my fault.
It'd make sense to sell books filled with psalms our love has inspired. Profit from the nonstop poems venting the glories I admired, But it's not worth a dime , not even a dollar,
Hear Me Earth Your actions have Consequences Hear Me Earth Appendages ripping at one Another
She always said the leaves were t u r
The ship had sunk beneath the sea,. And from the deep, it beckoned me. I followed suit, beyond the foam, to the place it made its home. And as I gazed
Alone, in a destroyed forest It stood in the middle Elegantly composed Surrounded by burnt trees and flayed shrubs
In the topaz breath of morning Reeds shiver in their wintry coats Pines arc past the horizon Luxuriant breezes rise from their beds
Is nature a place where you feel freeOr is nature a place for your trash,What is nature to you? Is nature a place where you feel calmOr is nature a place that shouldn’t exist,What is nature to you?
I look to the sky, there’s not a cloud in sight. Our food, That was so lovingly prepared by you, Is taken from the basket and placed on the quilt.
It's the way we hold hands In the face of adversity. When you tell me your Not satisfied. When you remember my mothers birthday.
Stars aloft, strung up high Falling gently, and with a quiet sigh Nature basks in the radiance Without Knowing Why
Sensing change in the breeze, Hearing music in rustling leaves, Finding hope in the strength of the trees, Seeing beauty in the birds flying free, That feeling of wonder when you stop to believe,
The moon peeking out from behind blankets of clouds mysteriously
A heart of diamond can't break A stream won't flow from a stone. Even if the earth were to shake, The mountain stands on its own. Is a glare made of diamond?
Love is the way the sun sets each day to reveal the moon. The way the ocean unforgivingly clashes against rocks is not love. Passion is the way leaves dance calmly in the crisp autumn air.
You talk about her like you are a plant and she is the sun you need to grow. Can't you see she is burning your leaves? Withering your petals?
The wind whips my hair around my neck – A gentle noose, taunting my mortality, My frail life-force, facing off against real power. I march along the pavement, determined not to be The next fatality.
I love you because... Your arms are coming home; warming me like a hearth, without the fear of its flame. Your voice is a stream;
I USED TO FEEL INCOMPLETE WITHOUT YOUR LOVE LIKE THE DAY IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT A SUNSHINE I USED TO FEEL WORTHLESS WITHOUT YOUR CARE LIKE THE NIGHT IS WITHOUT THE MOON BUT THEN LOVE FELL ON ME,
I USED TO FEEL INCOMPLETE WITHOUT YOUR LOVE LIKE THE DAY IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT A SUNSHINE I USED TO FEEL WORTHLESS
there is nothing more resilient than a flower with bright and reverent colors and soft dew sluggishly moving down the petals as the sunlight beats down on the delicate
We are all cardinals in the night, standing bloodred against the shadows as we strive to hide. Our feathers conceal tears which have sprung from our veins. Soar to the sky.
You wouldn’t know it if you met her But her moods can make Hurricanes in your soul Storms that pour and destroy And seem to last forever
There was a girl named Yoki who sat at the bench by the pond feeding the yellow and blue birds every morning. There was a boy who would sit and watch her, longing to be her friend.
She has flowers in her Golden wheat hair. Her limbs are tree branches, With leaves at her fingertips. Her eyes are brilliant stars; Her face glows with warm sunlight.
Sleep evades me; My dreams propel me To a greaeter unknown Through all I've excelled From the place from whence I came To the road I will travel. - A wandering soul
Step One: you take me down to the water where you wash your hands of me, and then, feeling loads lighter,
Rain falls heavy on the ground, And the cardinal sings somewhere in the dogwood tree. --Oh to pay attention! To listen to the clandestine voice of the forest.
Rain falls heavy on the ground, And the cardinal sings somewhere in the dogwood tree. --Oh to pay attention! To listen to the clandestine voice of the forest.
Like the sea he flows Sparkles in his eyes of blue, Keeping me afloat. Like the stars he shines Drawing constellations on
There is no path to gloryIt is an emerald seaThat movesViciously in every way imaginable. Only the calm stay afloat and awaken to another day.
She is the calm before the stormThe lightning bolt that strikesTake her as she isShe is a womanof might
The crisp air in my hair Chilly winds blowing everywhere Your head and hands go numb This is my hometown The feel of the soft powdered snow
Over the mountain Over the hill Traveling this wide land Year after year And oh, don’t you know I love you so, forever and ever And oh, don’t you know I love you so, forever and ever
You are crisp summer grass, the crunch of fallen leaves You are dandelion tufts floating on a spring breeze You are the muffled crunch of winter's icy freeze You are the sun and moon, the mountains and seas
You’re nature’s love There’s music In every particle of nature Feel it, feel it, feel it; The whole nature imbibes in you. In the words of Shakespeare,
from two different terrains, one hot and one cold, a small fox, coat bright and bold..a lioness, coat soft and low, she was fearless, cunning and sweet, coming from the bitter cold to crossing the sand was no easy feat,
All clouds are only water and air Beyond my mind, I am blank Circling thoughts are mere casualties Dust fills my lungs and dances Everlasting ideas create a gentle emptiness
A slow and steady rainfall Bringing life to those around The ache in your stomach from laughing too much Bittersweet in itself The vast ocean with parts unseen
O'er the mountain, Under gray sky, An eagle calls, I hear his cry. O'er the mountain, Doves mourn and cry, Sit and listen, As they all sigh.
Its beautiful.Flowers blooming.Sun smiling down on me.The silence,peaceful. Look closely at the grass, as it shinesand gleams.As the dew slips downon the smooth soft leaf.
He talk and talks and talks He will not stop moving his mouth All I want to do is go for a walk He insisted on going, I insisted he left But deep down inside my inner layer, I love him.
The wind whispers softly to you, calling your name. The warm sun warms your body like a flame.
Count the stars the small latterns that line the sky to help the moon light the path to tomorrow, as you try and walk away the sorrows. Wander aimlessly, searching for something that is lost
Summer comes as sweet as the strawberries in the front yard do, In the full swing of June swelling with intangible flavor. The plant starts bitter in late April when it is tucked into the soft earth.
In the winter the snowflakes fall, whether they are big or small, in the cold frostbitten air,
In the soft whisper, of the November gust, rustle the leaves of fall, the leaves just must!
The surface oscillates Sunlight shimmers, shimmers, shimmers Like a kaleidoscope, like a disco ball, streaming light back and forth, back and forth Like a circle swirling on, on, on Rise, break, fall
The moon paints over the sun And reverses all emotion As day turns into night Your fears begin to take flight Mystery reveals itself In the dust on your bookshelf The whirling changes spin you around
You can’t catch a cloud, you can’t restrain something not tangible. It’s made of water, But you can’t grasp a cloud; it’s very real, but you can’t hold a cloud in your hand. Unknown to most,
Life blooms all around you Under your bare feet Above your head Birds churp Insects hum The wind whistles Such beautiful music You walk along Guided by dandelions
Did you see the Fire dancing light likeSunbeams and ants we All are taken little by Little did we Know that everything happens For a reason you doNot remember Those icy frozen days and
From the Boiling Point In the Glory of Morning Faced with a Stairway to Heaven We Travel with Gulliver In Overland Trucks None shall be caught in Hades’ Toilet Bowl For we feed on manna
Imagine what it would be like floating off the edge of the Earth. Conversations become murmers, Car horns and police sirens dissapate and the songs of birds get carried away with the wind.
Lines composed during a walk from Highgate to Hampstead Heath 1991 It has been a day for wandering beneath this sky of early spring
no words float on water Lines composed on a walk between Hampstead and Highgate < London 1991
Run Rhino Run Let your thundering stomp reverberate among the mountains Echoing your heartbeat like an angry African drum
Decay sits at the bank of beauty disturbed little by boisterous bees or befuddled birds. May pacing paws trample your crunching leaves and evoke autumn which stirs with
Feel the presence of the wondering spirits, the lost loved ones Taste the saltiness of the raging sea Feel the earth churning beneath you feet The grass and leaves, crumbling

My heart becomes a stallion that swiftly passes through the immense field of green, Her eyes are but a doorway hidden from all men, The look she gives me as I pass her_inhaling her attractive scent,
Descend in a bed of white pale as snow, A gleaming path sprinting far and low, A borough buried bleakly as day turns to night.
When the leaves fall, The world turns colors. The local passersby wear jackets some days, Other days, they wear shorts. The wind, cool but not too cool.
Let the howls of the wind Ruffle the hushed moments The clinky leaves entwined Constrain the sound of silence. Let the buzzes of the bees Land into my ears The soft flaps of the butterfly
Have you ever stood there? In the morning dew watching the rays of gentle gold creep their way along the onyx sky. Listening to the murmur of the leaves
Do you want to know what lurks in the deep? Beneath my bare skin and white teeth Sitting deep within the bones Screaming, aching, and groaning. In the endless pit within my mind The voices echoing…
How the sky turns all these colors, your eyes are the most beautiful color the sky could ever be. As the wind blows the coldest breeze, it could never compare to your breath,
Standing on the Ocean shore allowed water to brush his feet Bubbling froth wrapped around while sand underneath brought peace Never in a million years have chirping birds sounded so graceful
Blue skies and green trees, Yellow flowers in the sun, All is calm, for now
I am the Sun, I burn with anger, I brighten with happiness. I am the Moon, I guide from darkness to light, But I loose my own way in the clouds. I am the Earth,
The uneven rocks give this hill character. Though storms may erode them they are still strong and beautiful. Etched into their being is lesson after lesson. Every curve tells a story. Ever changing. Ever growing.
There's a boat that is all mine that waits for me under a tall pine not much to look at not much to see when it's just the two of us I feel so free ove the water all through the waves
I searched, I looked for what felt like ages. Hands and knees rummaging through the damp earth but despite my best efforts, I could not find my four leaf clover. Clovers with three leaves swallowed my yard.
When the clouds block out the sky I won't forget There's still a sun, a sky after rain I'm still A little flower, letting go Of what I think I know
Verse: Mist, in my eyes Ice, heart melts, freeze Dive, into ocean spacious as skies Lie, sea turned bed if dived too deep Still profound, unexplored Wonder, how change will give more
So much of me that the world cannot see, I have to try to see it as beauty For if every condensed thread of my being were to unwind to the world Might I as well not exist? Questions to these answers may not unfurl...
I wish to ask the gushing stream Why fade thin into a foggy one And vanish like a twilight dream In the umbra of the sparkling sun
On my serene stroll in the green lawn Just before the sparkling crack of dawn Cuddled by the gentle singing breeze And magpie chirping along with ease I gazed with awe at the horizon high
I was taken advantage of. I gave you everything you could ever want.
Deep-throated thunder booming across the vale Shattered glass and Called out to my heart like home.
Hear the sound of the passing wind,Watch the blazing sun of yesteryear. The water rippled through the galaxy,I watch his back as he face the clouds.
Grim are the days when Grass does not whisper And silent run streams But no one listens To know the difference
every year for as long as i can remember my mom has tried to grow a rose bush. key word tried.
As I watch the setting sun I think of how our end will come Will we go unnoticed, forgotten in silence? Or will we go in history, like the greatest stories? We battled and fought, for this future we sought.
Looking out the window, I watched as the green leaves billowed in the breeze Even as I did, I envied them their freedom And carefree nature Their immobility seemed not to bother them
The enviroment is a tree And most can agree That us human beings Are the plauge of the tree To a certain degree The roots absorb, the polluted water
Have you ever Stared into the Darkening shadows of the night, Searching for the secrets That hold nature together? Have you ever Felt it staring back? Those that dare to try
Mother Approaches Singing Indomitable Thunder Infinitely Honored Raining Life
To sing of myself, A strange tune indeed, One filled with wonder and adventure and pride and fear and joy, A tale of many colors, none of which too dry. To sing of myself,
Shriveled to bone allow myself to ash let it rain upon me sink into the ground the soils' warmth surrounds me the roots a nurturing hold release into the stems feel the fruit
Father God, Mother Earth, Working hard, but what’s it worth? We each other both in flesh and in spirit, We ignore the Mother’s crys, can you hear it? Our trees are burning into ash,
He was like the moon, half always hidden What was it that split him- half darkness, half light? Crystal blue eyes held dark hidden secrets
The fire flickers Dancing on the wall An intricate dance That keeps growing tall Red, orange, green, then blue Hotter and hotter
I like sitting with the clear, little moon.We understand each other, and don't askAbout pasts, which for us both is a boon.I don't question her craters, or what
the grass flowed with the breeze rubbing off green on my scraped knees the scratches itched and burned but so did the sun I later learned
I followed his summer hues into a thick forest that left my wide eyes blind, I never knew beauty like these evergreen trees, I saw the sun dance on their dark leaves teaching their full veins one more thing: how to glow
Charred wood, Blackened Beyond recognition, Smolders From a forgotten fire. Smoke drifts Lazily into a cloudless sky, Unhampered by the summer breeze. Ash gray coals Die down and
I hear the birds chirp, See the squirrels run, Watch the flowers bloom, And admire when I count the stars, stare at the moon, Bathe in the sun, And relax.
Las estrellas piensan que llorar es un pérdida de tiempo Queme brillante Su luz eclipsa el cielo Cuando tu muertes Los nubes llorarán
You don’t know it, but sometimes I sit upon the branch of the highest tree at night to catch a glimpse of this transient life we have on earth, and take in the moon and the stars and all that surrounds me.
If I were a tree, I'd be a weeping willow tree. I'd serve many purposes And I'd see many things. I'd be a nesting site For the birds and the bees And I'll be a source of food
Moonlight drips from the pores of the sky and shines light upon green gardens and barred fences. The grey tint shows indifference on faces and in
Follow the glowing highway lights. Maybe you don’t know where you’re going, but someone’s ought to. That’s why people drive, isn’t it? To get somewhere? It’s no wonder you love the feeling of getting lost,
Spring, it smells like dew-stained lilacs fair, Of gardens with bloodred roses blooming there. Spring, it sounds like songbirds chirping with glee, And the plip-plop of raindrops sounds musical to me.
Finally The sun is shining Finally The birds are singing Rejoicing Like me
“I want to visit nature that is untouched and unmarked by manmade machines. Where you survive not by a GPS, But just a mental map and sense of direction.
How beautiful it is To live everyday breathing the warm/cold air of mother nature I find it fascinating how we simply are living. Look at those trees; so tall ,with many years
I see wisdom
I claim witness growing up, down a path left behind a mirage of some passing distance. I see now the blurr faces. A mask in craves something once wanted, more in need.
The smell of the wet earth in her nose How calming it was to finally be alone Her feet hit each step gracefully And her hair was pulled back tight.
A butterfly so beautiful, with wings so unique.Fluttering quietly; with not much purpose, other than to be looked at in awe. This exhilarating being happen to land on my shoulder. At that moment, I could only question my very existence.
My soul rests within your twisted knots, Warren and bear from storm and play. Each stroke of your bark holds separate memories, We pass you by without second thought.
The key to life Is a curious thing Some may describe in as embroidered in gold and flowing with satin ribbons that cascade down its side. Every minute of every day of every year
is it ever lonely being surrounded by so many even though you are all alone staring, unblinking into the darkness of the deep
I consistently identified comfort and company only with Solitude amongst the ashen and crimson stone walls of my home. Years I spent, a myriad of mornings marveling
There was a wood by my house you and I used to meet at. We would wait until the warmth of the glowing sun had gone So that you, my first love, Could wrap your strong, loving, embracing arms around my delicate, tiny body
Our mother is angry. She rattles in her sleep. There's a burning spirit among her. Her children, taking the heat.
Waterfall cascading, splashing down, making mist, giving the surface a kiss. Falling into itself it splushes, downward then downstream.It flows rippling, waving, it moves about,
The wind tugs playfully at my hair andthe edges of my skirt. I'm overcome by the smell of rain and my whole bodyis tingling.I hear
Rain Dribbling, Pitter Patter, Falling down, there it came. Can also read it backwards.
a flash of white streaks across the sky of night. that sudden flare had given you quite a scare. pitter-patter of the rain
I stare out my open door Feeling the wind whirl around me Causing my red hair to spin and fly As the giant trees look down at little me I smile up at them Just happily being in my oasis
As I sit by I recall the dark All the tears that I could not shed In the desert park No life around No signs at all I've stayed strong For so long I love my growth
Rhododendron ‘Hydon Dawn’ And boxwood hedges ‘round the lawn. Oleander, scented sweet And Hybrid Yew, in shade or heat. Rose of Sharon, lush and tall
The cherry blossom tree, likes to hide away its plumes, but for two weeks everything changes. As the spring dawns it flames out, pink blossoms opening up.
The storm calls forth the seas,A figure stands, alone,A miracle observed by none. Turn, turn,Sweet one, you control the winds,The havoc’s mistress is gentle of heart.
a tree in the forest standing tall will it not bend to the winter's song ? a rock in the river holding fast through storm and flood will the stone last? a flower in the meadow
make me, unmake me, unwind me like ribbon, bury me with all that has died before— half decayed children and barely formed youths all me, all not let petals suture
The road so long and winding, The rocks beneath my feet watching, I kick a rock, I watch it roll; then it stops, And then I keep on walking.
The rock will never lie His truths are etched upon his face. Scarred rock, cold and gray, bring comfort To those in search of solidity. Through amber leaves, piercing cold,
The freedom I felt to express was so effortless, yet so natural and challenging.
A new year meant a new start. The beginning was a blast, and when that clock struck midnight everything was in the past. When spring came around, things began to change.
Passing on the banks of the river, bluffs on each side rise to reach a low sky. Covered only in scraggly bushes, rock bare and brown slopes and juts above the banks. Rock gives way to trees, a puffed blanket draped
How the flower sits so brightly lit How perfectly it fits how perfectly it sits wading in the sun always having fun it goes along with the breeze and so do the trees and so do the leaves
How peaceful a bee hardly has any worries flys around town up and down it flies so elegantly among the trees See the birds and things fly high in the sky how peaceful they fly

they cannot breathebut they can seethe trees turn greenand the colorof the lake doesn’tmatter. they rememberthe color leaving their face, their body forgetting
The way that the sun sets and the sky looks as if it’s on fire, Sitting on the edge looking down endless rows of trees and wanting to be even higher,
Somewhere between my birth and death, flowers wilt and sulk, leaves breakaway, and the wind carries the seedlings. Things fall and deteriorate,
Nature sings: Time is her beat Flora and fauna are her notes The trees sway to the rhythm of the wind Birds add their harmonies to Mother Earth's tune Earth's silence is a caesura- not a complete end
He never gets tired of taking a deep breath And sinking in that warm spring air Smelling of morning dew and newly fallen rain.
He dreams of yellow eyes Watching him in the night Surrounded by darkness. He cannot shoo them away Or bribe them with food
The flowers grow But I could care less. The birds are chirping again. But their sound is not music to my ears.
Roaring above the blooming trees yells at the animals around him. He hasn’t heard this sound before, And he’s second guessing every step forward
Rain falls on a February morning Freezing into spears before it hits the ground. He dodges the drops among the trees
I am not lonely. I am not lonely. I am not lonely. I am not lonely! I am not lonely. I AM NOT LONELY.
Autumn gold Covered the trees in late season, Light glistening on the leaves As hot cider is poured Into mugs on the front porch.
Who are you? How did you do that? I cried as I looked back in time, He wrapped his icy arms around my waist, we stood there, intertwined,
Lost in the forest an oak reaches for a star The sun smiles
Yes!? You feel it don't you? A spark, no, an ember. Oneof many embers, too, long forgotten and with no stir. A fire once great in your eart. No, not just a flame, but a bolt of lightning,
Enveloped in a world of adventure, left to relinquish control and trust our own glorious instinct, leaving our monotonous lives behind to discover a literal path, a path in which we can let our minds explore.
Oh Great Oak Your branches stumps themselves Your roots snakes overlapping Your leaves lush and colorful Oh Warm Oak Birds sing in your embrace Squirrels gather in your arms
I am from the seeds dropped from familiar hands, dug into the cigar box storing old memories, sprinkled lightly onto the soil which bore me into this earth,
Birds sing songs to me. And I learn to sing them too. The songs of Haiku
I still hear the children playing, They have their own homes now. I still hear the horses running, They have passed away now. I still hear the rain falling,
Whistling through the air, Is something familiar, musical, The sweet scent of jasmine wafting over, I almost feel as if I have a four-leaf clover, Sunshine breaking through the clouds,
Why is finding happy upbeat songs so hard to do? They are always on the radio (the same ones over and over) But as soon as you try to find one alone they are like
A gust of wind. I am dislodged from my cradle. My blanket is ripped away. My family shrinks in the distance. I crash to the ground. The light blinks out as I am covered in a new blanket. I am cold.
Let me feel the sun kiss my face as it rises from the horizon painting the sky in hues of pink and blue let's call it a new day I touch my paints dripping inks and splats of color
A soft sky above me floats Wisps of cotton patterns blue Up high the breeze cuts thin Sounding out its sharpest notes Tall in trees, I hear them sing Raining feathers as the flew
Red blooming blossoms Light scribbling script Dark denim bottoms Great dark blue ships Roaring white rivers Charm mixed with sass Moonshine in slivers Green blades of grass
Night—I’ve loved you long time. Your shadows no longer scare me, as I have finally realized that you provided my mind, restless with questions
Loving the sound of rain hitting the roof of my dorm, nature's alarm clock. Overjoyed, I run outside.
The Way the seeds grow When seeds fall from a plant Does it gaze upon that plant As a ray of sunshine That will guide its way,
Shrills of laughter embedded in the atmosphere, swirling clouds of music raining symphonies among us. River brooks streaming poetic words tickling our toes,
Today was less than desirable you say? Let me help you take that pain away. Just put on your favorite playlist and walk out the door, Don't take the time to wonder what for.
I’m emotional. I cry a lot. But these teary eyes brown pools of mud, drip only for a while before they flood into a heart broken pile. Books, trees, paper.
There is nothing better than a sky filled with clouds that are ready to pour down rain. And the only thing that rivals that is when the heavens open up to bless the Earth with cool and gracious water.
They have their hand in the air The ones with the black suits and briefcases stride forward Confident The others seam to fall forward Their hand raised in a call for balance
To capture a picture means a memory
Let me wander down to the water, let me climb over rocks, let me lie in the stream until I remember what I forgot, and the birds they're singing hidden away in the trees,
My hair dances in the wind, While the sunshine warms my cold skin. The apple red leaves, Crunch softly beneath my boots. The birds singing their songs, Make my spirit float up,
Going outside makes me feel good I would spend all my time walking around if I could strolling and observing is what I do and breathing in the fresh air too, Minutes and hours pass by How fast they go, oh my!
The Transcendental era was right fleeing to nature at any complicating plight burying deep into the foliage and soil avoiding the worlds unbearable turmoil
And i know i am another one, another bird in the tree, finally knocked by a stone, but atleast you came down with me.
Let the rain, let the shine, let the day be mine. With the showers, or the sun's powers, the day is here. A puddle here, a puddle there, splashing through the clear. A flower blooms, a leaf falls, let the day be mine.
I wish to be like a tree Have the sun provide all my energy I crave to destroy what I was before In order to become something more beautiful, a part of nature. Instead I'm human The worst of them all
Walking through the overgrown grass watching the winged dust motes float away I pick up the walnuts Some lay clean, dry,
The invisible force blowing the trees The flowers blooming and blossoming with glee With each and every day The Earth exhales in its majesty
When things aren't great When I'm feeling grey Stepping outside Always makes my day The sun on my face The grass on my feet Reminds me I'm alive Makes me feel complete
The water and its depth would scare me as a child I knew the waves could whip me and make me wild I used to think the ocean was hollow like a shell And that the monsters in it were secrets I should never tell
The water and its depth would scare me as a child I knew the waves could whip me and make me wild I used to think the ocean was hollow like a shell And that the monsters in it were secrets I should never tell
The Sweetness of Summer is a distinct flavor.
Lost in the land of backpacks, bullying, and excuses I just can't take it any more, I'm a complex thinker in a simple, close-minded land The bland robots walk around with the same daily routine
I think about the trees that protect me from the blazing sun. The birds that sing me to sleep The wind that keeps me cool
My eyes are tear-filled My head is spinning My soul feels crippled But the sunshine is coming I take a step into the wilderness of busy streets and bustling lives
A spiral of roots calms a tortured soul— one whose mind is clouded with worry
I need someone to hold me, To wrap their arms around me and Squeeze the sorrow away But I know I can't have that sometimes, And that's okay; It has to be Release me from this anger,
Frolicking breeze, the humming of bees, and Monarchs who dart to and fro Wide awake air, seeds dance like Astaire, and off to the forest I go To giggle and play with the nurturing boughs who look on the scene below
Alone, I could sit for an eternity, afraid, shallow, and weak. Quite, I could last a century, a poet without a word to speak. Lost, I could feel with no memory of the years, month or week
Its Nothing that I hate more than anything. It’s the apathy, boredom, listlessness, indifference The wandering directionless that is more painful than any pain.

Not far into the forest of nature, Yet far from the noise of the highway, The lake sits silent, and calm, and still, Just as I am, silent, calm, and still, As I rest beside the lake.

I drove through shaded green canopies To the boundary of land and water, And as I tiptoed across crumbled rock Careful Not to fill my shoes with grain, The sour smell that lingered Between sand and sky

I swallowed air into my lungs. The time we ran away in violet skies. When the sun rised and numbed our eyes. The love for the sea I then realized. It vanished deep within me.

A little white feather on a boring swan lay, wanted to go on an adventure that day, so he unbuckled himself from the coat so white, and sailed off without any fright. Over the meadows and trees he floated,
The easy breeze sways The tips of the pine trees and The birds sing softly.
Wake up early -- 10 in the morn. Outside your house I beep the horn.
The morning sun rises peacefully and the birds begin to play. The soft glow of pink and red turns
On airy cliff side sits the falcon’s nest, A perch of splendid vacant seaside view, And in it does my youthful spirit rest, Absorbing breath of air and sky of blue; While body lives the life of down-below,
thimbles tacks and tiny things sewing
I wish the trees had just met up And said “let’s not be mean, Why must we work so awfully hard To keep our leaves so green? Why don’t we halt this tiring race, As odd as it may sound,
I listen to the wind under the trees
Words are funny, sometimes. It used to be that "awesome" and "awful" meant much the same thing. The kind of thing that, well--

Awake! Bud of green,
People say that white is pure But I have found that green is far more unadulterated Until now, I never noticed how one color could evoke so much fulfillment

It did not feel like it should be snowing, but it was. The air was almost warm, my jacket was open. Walking along the dark dirt path I saw
Where do you go when you want to be alone? There are a thousand places in the world i call home. Some I have only been to in my mind. Others are high rocks reached after a climb.
Sounds of birds and frogs, Howls of owls from some hidden logs,
Gone! Gone! The works of Man! Returned to dust, where they began! Washed low by wave and dripping rain! Bare, cold stone where bones were lain! Color stripp'd by desert sand and storm!
Why is it that Mother Nature Blesses the winter With an ivory coat and Blesses the spring

The radiant energy from the sun shines Reveals itself through the cracks of the in between branches of oak trees As you exhale as a long sign of relief You inhale The scent of freshly cut grass
A tree is a sight to behold,
The trees are Spartan spears, Authority and valor pierce the Horizon— They stand dense and hold light and Fog. They do not bend for you and me, they never have. They do not bestow Grace or Mercy
Once in a blue moon,On a windless night,
A fiery sunset over a lake at dusk The intricate carvings on an ivory tusk The ocean’s waves that crash and roar And break upon a distant shore The silvery twinkle in the stars at night
The wind pushes against my window as if it’s aching to get inside
All Around Beauty Natural and Real Unadulterated By Man's Dull Existence Butterflies Birds Even leaves Hold powerful significance to the Watchful eye
Retreat, regroup Wind pummels rocky water, Kinetic greets potential, Bearing down on the steadfast shore. Prequel of froth Turbulent and tumultuous, Echoed in the susurrus of spectators,

...Listen It is when immersed in a moment of silence that all the universe breaks forth in song and I a recipient simply sit in awe of the wondrous symphonic orchestrations
Gathered together from greatest to poorest thickets and meadows, a lush mighty forest. Peace and great solace amidst the strong trees broad leaf and fine needle they sway in the breeze.
The rustic life, pastoral scenes, the basis of idyllic dreams the simple ways of nature come, its harmony in total sum. These country settings, warm and real,
I felt the burly city too,Of brick and horns and sirens,Of rusty metal and broken glass,Of monolithic stone reachingFor the underside of space,And despite the raw strength of it all
Nature likes citieskeeps man stackedon top of each otherout of her wayso she can roam freein fields and mountainsdown gentle streams .
He thought he shared the universe with all;Heard many voices in response remandAn inundation—words unlike his call,From the desert-bare cliff across the sand.Some morning from the parched and thirsty ground

I LookedI looked for lifeon a dusty trailkicking a rock for milesand I saw a shooting star.I looked for lifeup in the skywatched the birds soarand saw shapes in the clouds.
Come with me and watch the sunset fade. Let’s get away from this fake masquerade. Can you feel the cool, fresh air? We can be ourselves here and have not a care. The scenery here is very vivid and vast.
I came here with the seagulls I’m a born city-dweller but the water crashes
the moon's like God's flashlight for the lost in the night sky; like God's spotlight to let you know he sees you and that you're a super star in your own right with your own light; like Heaven's porch light to let you know
In the still of the night I cannot see, Low as the moon appears to be sinking Over the tall pine trees and the mountains clear. Vacantly my poor mind avoids thinking,
So...Can you hear my whisper
you are full of beauty,
Awesome is life.
Oh, the saccharine exhale of the skies Breaking through the denseness of stagnant air Lifting up spirits and drowning out destitute cries Claiming the heavens as her lair Reigns the frivolous delight known as wind
1041.7 miles every hour, is the speed at which the earth rotates But that speed seems a lot slower when you stop and realize all of things that are great.
The snow dances down Like prima ballerinas, Floating and flitting. It lands with not one small sound, A lull, then orchestra swells.
All trees are stretching, Shaking off heavy blankets, Buds blossoming out.
Showing up to class with my hopes of seeing her
I take the small step from the inner boundaries of my home to the unorchestrated planet outside where both biotic and abiotic creatures reside Nature reaches the farthest realms in length and width
You are the element of life,
Birds chirping Dogs barking
Deep in a forest Where the wind blows Lives the grass, the trees and grow. They strive off of life And they know what is right Here is where the wind blows And the trees and grass grow.
Hummingbirds Hummingbirds give me hope I see them buzz, they rarely mope. When I’m tired and blue Few creatures point directly back to you. Those Hummingbirds that do not sing
my soul is well, yet my mind is lost in an Identity crisis.
I like to watch people in the park, not in a creepy way but just to see how others do things.
Many hearts will come and FALL BUT MY greed will remain steady Cypress Delva Residing by the wayside The breeze whispering on my face
The lonely rain falls heavily,
They say beauty is only skin deep. And that true beauty is fitted to the soul. To these I might agree. For simple beauty is not but a visual stimuli that releases dopamine.
I stand upon a Cliffside, Watching the hard white waves stride. When I hear someone call me from my side; I turn and meet a glare with their sunset eyes. They cast my gaze to a valley side,
why don't people just stop and listen? to the crickets chirping on a cool night. to the slowing breath of the one they love, laying beside them. listen to the air around them, for it's silence is loud enough.
lifted I am and swayed Brought back to the sandy shore. I feel the impact of the water And I spar with the force
Sometimes we find ourselves in a very dark place.
And still the sea beckoned washings it’s salty brine over my feet trapping them for good I would be the lighthouse the beacon in the night the light guiding shipwrecks to their watery graves below
I am happy as a cloudas loud as a rainbowas soft as a breeze
eyes wide ingesting everything ravenous retinas resolution high wind whips blurry hurried blinking bliss air warm thick breaths breeze blue sun beams vast view
Haikus In the dark forests, beams of light pass through the leaves
It’s in the way I see shapes in the clouds. It’s how I feel when the sun kisses the horizon good night. It’s when the bride and groom hold hands. It’s the first breath from the summit.
A creeping wind knows no bounds
Weeks on end this fog has not lifted It blurs my vision and my mind's nerves are racing crashing, connecting, circling tangling itself with this dense fog. Today, the skies are gloomy
I have always loved the ocean. Blue, vast, and inviting, just like your eyes. My eyes are the color of the deep, green land. The land always grows with beautiful, exciting colors of comfortable change.
Stability is a joke. When I feel fine, it is time to plan on going somewhere else. All because of YOU. You came in acting as a replacement father and came out as a joke. A lying joke with no point and only offense. You think you can control me?
The colors of the universe Envelop my body As I am one with it
The air forcing me to breathe The trees stealing my eyes lips stuck like 2 phone books hit it off n got married no prenup cant find the fire in my eyes it was just here wrote a paper tobackout
A breeze, trembling as it channels down through the trees, Articulates itself to me as talking leaves sail from the higher bodies of nature.
Flowers have been planted in my heart Roots intertwineing with my veins pulling them apart Seeds burrowed deep inside my chambers The planters thinking they are doing me a favor Some stay and help them grow
Whirl your pointed pines
Waves flash lightning
Distanced of the long ubiquitous walk
Under shadow of the blissful black
The world was like a
The serenity of silence on a spring day. Clear blue skies and a warming sun. Nothing yells tranquility like this.
She was a bloom of light under the moon at night a blossom bombardment of beauty, I surrendered among the roses, seeking my purpose in sight I could only sway in my place, unable to venture
Oh heed my soul my beating heart To behold such beauty here That’s makes my life A shining star A shimmer Crests the mounts Eastly rising more to come With rising of the bloody sun
Her beauty is a flowershyly peeking its head above ground,but bursting with color.Hers is thegentle touch of the spring breeze,the placid clarity of
Storm clouds drift asunder Sanction the golden sun Silence raging thunder, See smiles and to them run. Inspiration hides Where greatness resides And is overlooked We’re all overbooked
Everything that is, is god.
I am an explorer
The day setting into a vast rice-bowl horizon Lifeblood of the sun Painted across ashen skies A sailor’s delight The wind forming a cocoon of tranquility
Where the cherry shall drop into the pink oceans And he lamb’s ear shall hear the wind’s whisperings The undefeated sun shall shine forth into the fourth of darkness Yet the grounds are of pearl
Tears are wrongly looked upon, As something only sorrow. They show weakness, Or they show anger. But truly, tears are meant for better. Walk through the woods, Run and get lost in adventure.
What we are
The Experience of Self By Andrea Spencer Silver fingers brushing soft pine’s needles -whose frost scrapes and burns this season- into her human hands.
My memories of you are like the trees Roots planted deep in the ground of my mind Your branches, intertwined with every passing thought
Your eyes distant And as deep as the blue sea On sandy steps we watch The waves curl and break
Words are not enough, like the wonder of first love seen in sweeping hills, feeling eternity in the fields
The Beauty of Life The Beauty of
Under a willow in yellowing fields, Watching the bees as summertime yields, The flowers to autumn's bitter chill. I sit in the grass and time stands still. Feathered white clouds hang in the sky,
the flower the vine. tubers and seeds, veins and leaves;
If there was an exit, Life would mean that much more, Life would be that much harder, Having to hold on knowing its ok to leave any time through that one-way door Searching for it, she chose to stay,
The sky was pale blue with tints of pink through the window of a white washed house. Branches hanging on to trunks of trees, no leaves, just pale white-brown.
As I stand in the sunshine in the garden by the little shrine, My Nonna’s little shrine of humble fig trees, And look at the vast blue sky,
Tick tick tick A silent wish One owned by quietness Tock tock tock
You won’t find me in the crowd My colors won’t capture your attention So what do you see When you turn to look in my direction? When I stare into adversity
Slumber. Crema. Ludwig. Aden. Perputa. Amaro. Mayfair. Rise. Hudson. Valencia. X-Pro ll. Sierra. Willow. Lo-Fi. Earlybird. Brannan. Inkwell. Hefe. Nashville
So lightly you appear And my mind just can not compare Since everything is so different. How can it be this colorful? Still my sorrow lingers on too. My heart aches at the loss
An old and wise book full of stories that stretch miles wide, the old oak tree calmly rests without a soul by his side. Years of experience the old oak has, listens to the wind and gently swaying grass.
Let Me Be By Raquel Gonzalez There’s a world around me
The trees whisper to me on windy days,
The leaves slowling falling down So many leaves on the ground Branches swaying back and fourth The wind moves them and makes them free The trees look so alive They move and they breathe
You are the waves of the ocean, Unapologetically crashing to the shore, Then seeping back out to the sea, To rise and fall unyieldingly. You are the trees in the forest, Radiant and confident,
Like wind, I'm unpredictable. Bringing a breeze, I cause people to move in my direction and not be still. Making the day that much better, to know I am wanted and not wished to go away.
In the cold and gray comfort of the morning I stare at the skyline above my city. 6:14am A cool colorless light seeps into the sky Brightening the dullness.
Dreadlocks dangling down my bare, pale backMy eyes are the colour red like a sunset in summerA quick brush of wind converses with my skirtFeeling the rain start to f
I wonder what I can give, as far as wisdom goes, for I am somewhat young and have many years to live. The cool Autumn wind blows
Is it not interesting, the way a single daisy grows through a crack in the sidewalk? Layer upon layer of cement and sweat and exertion were Smoothed into place there and were never meant to be disturbed my man’s efforts.

Thoughts unhinderedTravel spry, in the form of prose,Observation won't ceasewhen the world slows.
I am creative and laidback I wonder about the bundle of variations called the multiverse I hear the cackles of the last Shifkin before it engulfs its prey in one glup
Nature is a mystery, but I am unique. The world spins around in an orbit, but my head spins through imagination of wild stories. Out of boredom, the weather becomes a hectic storm,
He is famous: He is loud and bright. People are forced to acknowledge the sight of his existence. Without him, nothing would get done. Everyone loves the beauty of his entrance and even his exit.
When Mother Nature met Father Time, She knew he was the one.
Where the air flows fresh and crisp And life radiates shades of green And orange and red and colors That run deeper than the scars Of the Earth; Where the grasp of man halts, Giving way to nature,
Any man who has surveyed any land can tell another:
Being alive im cold I cant breath Life being taken from me as i lay asleep My mind wondering , whats happening to me Life isnt over? Than why do i feel dead Fighting a nightmare Looking for a dream
You know perfection Is a man-made word Because it is shallow. Though its implications are potent, No poetry projects from its reflection –
my heart has been through so much, i figured i wouldnt have to take another break...
I sat and watch the stars above How gracious how belove The nature and the love The earth is full of beauty, With nature unity What a blessed creativity
One foot at a time I climb into my wet suit Puff of air As I check my tank The unknown mysteriousness awaits Bubbles float to the surface The world starts to bounce in the glistening sunlight
Delusions of grandeur. Although,
Green sap oozing from great gashes in trees into paper, furniture, and houses all for human needs like the great stashes of black oil oozing.... into lakes, rivers, and streams
The water is tepid, the sea cool bliss;
Oh, if only I could go I'd walk towards a meadow My screen of glass would stay astray Divorced from me. I'd settle among the tranquil trees, and open my mind to new possibilities.
Peaceful rosary, The moon and the sky. A tree line’s lazy lush Screaming inside me A microscopic colony Quiet vitality I don’t know how The world got so beautiful
If you take a look at me, with my piercings, my unnatural hair that feels more natural than the mousey brown I was born with, you can guess
Dedicated to a dear friend named Sandra Hong, whose life was tragically lost and taken away from us too soon in October 2013.
Soft, Calm, Cataclysm Thats what I call a storm Barely suppressed fury Thats what I call a storm
Beautiful is the Earth! Though not all things are mirth, Every small thing has worth. A yellow star presides; A white moon touches tides; A twinkling star abides.
A man may have a solid build. Perhaps his hair’s softer than fleece. Thick arms might lift a girl with ease. Maybe his eyes with warmth are filled. Some men stand with a solid stance.
A flower now blooms, The soft green grass waxes tall, A tree gains a ring. The clouds become sparse. So, too, is water now scarce, And plants droop slowly. Fool: careless human
Though I am free, You could enslave me Like a master that enslaves scholars. Though I am resistant, You could poison me Like a predator that poisons its prey Though I am tough,
The sun rises from her eastern lair, She sounds like the hooting morning dove. The fresh smells that are everywhere Glow the reds and pinks that shine from above. The new dew on feet so bare
Listen! I am between the sidewalk cracks Listen! Here under asphalt bought with tax Listen! To city trees with smog their ax Hear my healing voice and have hope again
odd how i think ofYou in the spice aisleof the grocer near my homewhich sits empty,waiting forYour bodyto fill it with the smell of rosemary andsmoke. if only i had time
The moment of freedom To do anything worthwhile. Running, jumping, hopping through The forest growth. The only regret is crushing An innocent insect. But still you can smell the pine-
On this train, I descend. A cruel descent from heaven to hell. The misty, rhythmic waterfalls
I am a goddess A creation so divine that - galaxies will swirl in my veins- black and blue like a brusie so freshly wrought that the tinges of purple seem to darken the hues
I was staggering, drunk, holding onto my cousin as if she was now my physical crutch as well. It was pitch black, the trees surrounding us, and if they weren't attached to mother earth,
I've always marveled at sunsets—
Her eyes are the tree bark;Making her face come al
I am an outcast in this little city, I enjoy long
My bare feet felt frigid, as they squished the wet ground. The dark emerald grass was damp and powerless against me. The blades of grass bent and plummeted
Me and You We going to rendezvous Because I love you boo And
When blue meets black is at high noon
Life is a journey and happiness comes with exploration.
Cancer is scary, Cancer is frightening, but don't worry child, Because I know you won't stop fighting,
like a tea sieve filtering windfall colors. The sundried day was cold, and bird-eyed students waded through the tea-thick air on their way from class,
Let your mind Bloom like a flower In spring. May your thoughts Grow fertile In soil of encouragement. Create a field of plenty Waiting to be harvest
Analyze me. Let your eyes wander over me; Map me, like the untamed land I am. Explore me: my faults, my strengths, and my all. I am a universe, my depths are infinite.
I am the Earth and the soil.
At the far side of the land In a sunset's silouette Lies an autumn lake
People judge me how they see me Sometimes I am a turtle taking life slow I am who I am not who people want me to be Though hurt I don't let my emotions show I'm like a beaver trying to make it on my own
my father met my mother on the train tracksleading out of Hackensack, New Jersey. she was clad in blue and embossed with blisters;he was wearing a black sweater and had a stumbling tongue.
Im standing on top of a hill tired and out of breath yet i see how similar my way up that hill is to my life.
Dashing o’er a thousand hills, Gliding through the forests, Dancing o’er a million fields, Soaring o’er the jungles. I sing a delightful melody, I sing the tune of love,
Serene, still and calm I lie, Stretched beneath the heavenly sky, Lapping the dewy grass around me, Silently I ripple and smile. For long, long days, I watch the birds overhead fly,
Gently floating down, Gliding past lavender crowns, Down, down, falling, Brushing past flowers, and whispering, Sweet, sweet words of love, joy and pain; Exchanging memories
I am cosmic dust. I am a raging storm of gentle emotion. My spirit is a wind that blows unobstructively. I'm stronger than the words thrown into the voltage of my mind. My heart still beats. I am alive.
I remember my mother stating,"Im pregnant!" with such excitement only to come to realize that outr "father" had different plans for that baby.
The earth fed us through our feet as we stood in the grass. The rain quenched our thirst as it dripped into our trembling hands. We indulged in luscious conversation
Searching here and there, striving to find bliss... Went to friends and colleagues, they said get rich; enjoy luxury, pleasure is the mean of bliss... Not really!!
Close your eyes, darling, For there they cannot harm.
The glow and look in your eye. A shock of excitement from your smile. Spread of warmth from those delicate hands Maybe even a stride in your walk
Huge, gray wonders. Skin like leather draped over a seemingly giant frame. A curious appendage for noisemaking. Dark black eyes with kindness behind them. Majestic, beautiful, and playful.
Sitting alone on the grass late one night Admiring the starry sky shining so bright I could not help but be in awe of my God Who created the heavens and man out of sod
If I die,I want to be there,that tree,behind thosemountains,in the roots.Nextto the bugs Choppedbut grounded.becauseIm not those
I am an open space Vast, Lush, Deep, Dark, or Green A million words can describe my being Though the only true one is "Dead" No walls may confine me I am viturally free
I'm always thinking and I'm dreaming I'm always creating and my eyes are gleaming With the thoughts of what can be and what will My optimism is why I cannot keep still and some people wonder where it comes from
If one laid on a prairie at night, they would experience the world and become awestruck
Inspiration is the key, to get past the heavy door
To all wounds of the heart, Time is the antidote. Designed like a coat Soothing the pain as it impart It is nonpareil It understands what you want As time acts more than a confidant
She moves with grace, a willow whisp made with steel of natures breath bird songs whistle past her lips fingers climb like vines- endless The worlds greatest contradiction Beauty live in mind, in voice
Happiness is elusive, But I am conclusive. I have found the equation To make life as glamorous as a fiction. Take all of the negative vibes from society, Push them into the leaving air.
The golden hue of a time forgotten Silver shades of today, Together they meld into the generations of my family. Charcoal shadows give character to the night While white light bathes the day in hope.
Times will be bad,
Solitude is where my comfort exists And where I'm most blessed to be Which is why I find myself

This is the time. Leaves dance in the air, Giving color to the wind.
I catch myself analyzing every little detail around me
The scratch and swish of pen on paper, Is wind through creaking trees on an Autumn evening
Oct 16 The air is cool A steady stream of water pushing against the shore Taking bits of it with it as it recedes back to its home over and over and over again.
Oct 10 2014
Oct 5 2014 The sun is sitting on the crown of the trees just due east. Reaching her arms through its leaves, Holding it. Like a mother hugs her child.
An evening glow arrays the luminous pines, A banded forest stained with a velvet wine. The brook speaks too much but says nothing at all, Babbling a tune with each harmonious fall.
I feel the chill across my face
Much like a woman is the sky. In the afternoon she is there, attending to her daily routine. She shines bright, yet is taken for granted most days. As evening nears, the night is only just beginning.
You can hear the howling whistle of the air,
Inbetween the mountains I lay Waiting for a warm breeze. These days are rare now. I look around, I see beautiful, towering trees. The snow on the mountain tops shines.
Have you noticed that the clouds move fast when there's no wind did you know that they move slow when thunder breaks upon
Did you feel wind today, how it blew and blew? Did you see the birds fearlessly taking flight home?
There's a calm silence
The sun is rising leaves are falling, the crisp, cold air has arrived I love the feeling, within my whole being, that you have awaken inside you are my sunshine, my moon, and my stars,
From the darkness the sky unfolds welcoming the new light of day. Mellow colors flood the sky and drag sleepy fingers across the earth. The sun rises from the deep abyss of the night
Fields of sunflowers, secrets, whispered words of love. Have you forgotten?
Small, happy red fish flipping in the bright blue waves. Jump, splash, goodbye friend.
The apple rots when it very well pleases The seed just does what it’s told It grows and grows, the ground picks up the pieces Of the apple tree’s selfish mold. There’s no free will for the sapling
A melodic longing for what cannot be
She was the moon Glowing softly Casting shadows upon the ground She did not know herself With changing faces Appearing in different skies, different places Everyday a piece of her fell away
The Northern Atlantic Right Whale was nearly driven to extinction by whalers who killed them because they were the easiest whale to hunt. In today's society,
I drove with the windows down To feel the air upon my skin To watch the sunlight kiss the trees To figure out what sleeps within
Rain is our weather.
The day of all days is the day that I triumphed,
Shes beautiful and strong . She gave us life and is wise when to take it. She loves you even if you attack her. She gives to us, even when we steal from her. She tries to warn us but we won't listen.
To avoid the darkness Nature is my happiness The trees, they shiver cold But now I have something to hold The sun fills my eyes instead of cries Water flows feel like my hair
A cold breeze. A silent hum in the air. A breath slowly fills my lungs. Happiness fills my soul. Long hours in a quiet room. I finally escape the chaos that life has created. The leaves fall on the ground and I let it all go.
Find yourself exploring Less bags and more outdoors See the setting sun Hear the chirping birds Smell the sea salted ocean water Taste the fresh air Touch the slimy catch of the day
When I walk with the moonlight, Not underneath but beside it, It whispers to me 'do not lose heart, And then I go out and try it. When I swim with the clouds, Gliding through the fluffy air,
Bright blue eyes Clear skies Light rain Life gains Small hands Green lands Tall trees Livid keys First laugh Fresh path Fallen leaves He sees
The tree laughs Children play below On a hot summer day so slow The tree is shade And the tree likes offering aid The tree smiles A couple look deeply into each other's souls
The feel of the breeze swept across my skin
Water coming down, Gravity pulling it down, The rain will soon touch...
Walking werewithal into a forest Hearing the calls of birds and gurgling streams Without a care in the world, Or so it seems Sun on my face as the trees rise before me
Autumn air gently drapes my object of affection.
What I wouldn’t give for a camera to freeze this moment forever and always. To show people the richness of the soil; how it clumps together - dark, shifting,
I survey the land ahead. As i look out on the horizon, I see a humming bird, hovering near a flower. I hear a bee, buzzing around me. And I distinctly hear a tree fall, in the distance.
I’m in love with the air
It’s tempting, to gaze upon the night sky and see only crisp starlight, juxtaposed with a firm sheet of outer space. But most would know that soon,
There was a girl, graceful and free She looked in the mirror just to see If her hair was not in a big mess To see if she looked rather stressed To make sure her makeup was intact
A casual ray floating through the airIlluminating the deep caves of my sheetsPressing against my skin with delicate sincerityMurmuring to me to wake upAccompanied by the birds exquisite melodies
Enjoy a nice, summer breeze Outside, I feel so free Look up at the endless sky Watch all the things that fly Enjoy the view with someone Embrace the rays of the Sun Can't describe in just one word
(Twist and shout scholarship slam)
I could say, "Mama, Mama, Mama, come help me" but you are so busy living out a Colorado fantasy
Do you breathe in whistles, sir? Because every time I walk by that is all I hear.
A letter was on a page part of a word part of a conciousness flowing out of the river of ideas ebbing from the lake of creativity. The letter vibrates through the air
The lotus, blooms from from the murkiest waters.
So I lie here thinking, not doing, just thinking
A Rose for Love,
As I took the time to ponder one day I came across a forgotten thought That thought was a memory of long ago under a tree I laid
Introducing: the storm that brews in her mind... It's force and undying winds become too much to bear Left her drained, dry, just an empty shell A foggy reflection, an expressionless stare
We have become comfortable with our lifestyles to the point where we ignore what is happening to the world around us. Can't you see the afternoon sky, violet with the polutants of man?
My voice carries most when I sing,
Lone Wolf Wandering among a forest of pines And through the chilling snow Trying to find a place of warmth
The follower slides down the mountainsides, of pale glory, traveling amongst the lines to paradise
It’s almost like a dream With the earth beneath us And the colors above The greens and the blues form an ocean Blending together to create waves That seems to go on forever
The gift of life is the most precious thing of all Two feet peak out from behind That will soon start to unwind And will make him stand very tall We all watch in awe The mother is patient
The world is a canvas And nature is the painting All the colors flow together To create a beautiful picture The location determines the temperature While the seasons pick the colors
Lullabies sung in the wind,
Walking on the rocks My feet close to The giant structures I felt a bond- a beauty. Trekking through the rocks Watching life in stillness And little creatures creep & crawl
“Why? It’s too much.” Why ask me again? I already told you. Red skinned, sweet sweat lines our noses My ankle propped on yours, Eyes quizzing the other’s. We don’t have the money. “But why?”
The Fearful TreeBy,Daniel Naglowsky, Jr.As his life begins, the tree is just a seedPetite and desolate, he will soon be like a weedAn unfavorable feeling is his only emotion
You should have known better
Driving on an old country road Take me to natures mountain home Tennessee old Country Roads
Today I say good morning to the sun! Usually it is the sun that wakes me up every single day. But today is special... At six a.m. it is I smiling down as the Sun Stirred from his deep, deep slumber.
Like the wind blows on trees I feel like new
Turning through the world never having and ending and never controled.
A Blood Moon NightWritten by Adam M. SnowTonight I watched in awe,the moon once pure and white.
our mother (earth) knows pain more than any human could experience and/orcomprehendbouts of droughts are known to occur during summer; the phrase “when it rains it pours” isn’t well known for little reasoning
You took my home My trees My life You rolled in with those big machines All loud and bright I am small I instantly fill with fright at the sight before me
Light sweeps over the plains,
Sunny Happy smile Always love my masters Just waiting a hug Suddenly a big stick coming through
As if the perfect sun would tell the secrets of it's soul, if it's plan,
The pitfalls of man, though shallow, stay d
Life, with its joyous song, is ever bright. The symphony is rich and full and strong. It plays in the summer’s resplendent light, While birds are chirping their resounding song.
Heavy sunshine sets the leaves aflame Until, by and by, it doth remain. But then it cools and remains no more
You are the sky I am the sea and although we make each other complete the universe says we shall never meet. We are divided by a horizon made prevalent by the sun that you see
This is oblivion Such is a state of limbo May one hope to leave
The forest: I go here to be at peace. My spiritual place that spills its breath onto the world in the bird’s call of morning and the owl’s song of night. Here is my serenity,
Blossoming petals, Sakura, Softly glowing in the spring rain, Shine! Shine in the midst of sorrow, A symbol of hope And new beginnings.
I often dream of myself floating from space, looking down upon the planet and watching its peacefulness. And from up above, if my voice could somehow reach every human being, I would say, "Stop trying to dominate nature."
A memory of the placid jungle stream filled with silvery fish of the flutter of butterfly wings against the lush green of the forest of the waterfall, flowing as if it came out of the cliffs itself
speaking in dead terms
Copper flakes fell from my hand and drifted away in the icy current. Engrossed by the dry, dancing scales, I crushed the thin skin of the leaf until it disintegrated into the stream below.
Hear the butterflies beating their blue wings; beautiful and sad. Listen to the wind shut your eyes
i think about silhouettes of trees when the leaves are dead and crumpled on the ground when the sky is deep red mixed with orange as vibrant as the sun kissed wings of a monarch butterfly and there is the tree
You can't go to war with nature. Even though man can destroy it and remold it and shape it into something profitable - mechanical - civil. It will win you over again.
Growing up you took care of me no matter how bad i was you gave me food and a roof and a mothers love from hugs and kisses to beatings and punishment i laugh so much when i think of all of it
She looks at it. It looks at her. Like looking in a mirror. Nature vs. Nurture. She reclines her seat As she watches the breeze Whisk around the palms And give ache in her feet.
Smoke clogs her lungs and makes it hard to breathe Cough, cough she tries to hard Her tears dry up as her children beg Her to give them more but nobody listens to Her needs, to Her pleads
I wanna feel the ocean's waves engulf me in it's blue wonderland, To feel safe and secure. Someone hold, Because I just might drown. To feel the heat-absorbed sand hug my toes,
You are always there... When the sun starts its rise The stars and paint merge their glows The night's soft demise As the surrealism flows No matter how unreal Whatever reality may be
Like fire cascading down the mountains . Setting ablaze he trees. With the last spot of light to be seen . Enforcing a relaxed mood in the atmosphere. After a hard days work
When the dark rolls in on summer skies
As I gaze into the jeweled night
In the city, coffee-toting zombies of the morning pass along the avenue, a rich soup of smog and haze. Skyscrapers stretch to block the sun, weeds growing in the cracks of neglected sidewalks. The
Oh! Amidst that vast evergreen forest, Lies an immaculate crystal palace Surrounded with red delicate rose crests Lives a beautiful queen with no malice. Oh! Her smile and her laughter fools many
On a clear night, I look up and think that the sidewalk would rise vertical so that I may walk all those miles to the stars and on a bright morning as the sun still nudges the horizon,
Quel night, those timber windy woods and plains of shushing grasses The sky is very still while the earth slowly passes. Nothing stirs, no bird nor bear, across the country’s dim
The beauty of nature puts me at peace, and as I observe it, my sadness will cease. I look at the sky, watching cardinals whiz by, and the bulk of my stress is released. From worry to wonder, my anxiety plunders, when I close my eyes and just br
The woods were encumbering in the sunrise. My gut wrenched with uncertainty of the buzzing feeling atop my forehead. A little green creature rested in the nests of my tousled hair,
A green parakeet eats seeds ever so peacefully chirping on a tree
Beautiful is she who speaks. Not with words scribbled out, Or with the dance in her feet. It's the beauty she finds in defeat.
Sun set after rise Gazed upon by tons of eyes Here, the sea line dies
My summer love, with the passion of the sun's warm rays and by night you're a gentle breeze, giving ease to a busy day.
Dear Branches, Gnarled and twisted. Dear leavess, Brown and rotting, We give thanks to thee, Dear tree For through thee Our family lives vicariously. Though dead and gone,
Wedding love--rare depth Uncommon variation Sought four leaf clover
I'd rather see Nature destroyed than left untouched
Lay me down on this gorgoeus night.
I’m outside, enjoying the view and warm sun Guaranteed, this is where I’ll always be I hear the thump of deer, grunt of a steer
Cages thrown deep into the Hudson The fishermen smoke stogies on the pier I fear- that I might get sick for the air is thick with the stench of smoke and chum It stabs at my nostrils on my morning run
As I drift off to sleep, my mind enters into a door of dreams, a door filled with adventures for me. Suddenly, I find myself in the sky in marvelous flight Seeing the world from up so high.
The Sun rises. Glory, Happiness, New Life. The Sun moves. Progress, Change, Lessons learned. The Sun sets. Hardship, Upheaval, Violence.
Sweet breezes of flower-filled air caress the curls at the back of my neck. I gaze at blessed people who bath in sun’s stare, as if reclining on a beach or a lake house deck.
landing lights stomp ancestors awaken themselves on my hand, belongs the nail of a great-great grandmother on my face is an ancient beauty mark, belongs to a great-great-great grandfather
The wind whips me, yet I don't fall.The rain rolls down my back.Thousands of my twins stand tall.Together we stand and will not crack.
The tulips --Red Yellow Purple White-- Raise sleepy heads Above their bed of grass As they nod softly Still on the cusp of sleep The breeze filling dreams With spring and summer scent
I move your mountains,For you rivers flow,
I read "Walden" religiously.
Epitomy of beauty. Thin, striking, bright. The opening act, yet the star of the show. Your abstract curves, And evil glare, Snap attention and draw eyes. Mouths open, hearts race.
We are mysterious creatures,
We left when it was still light and returned when it was about night. The moon hung in the sky with a dark cloud lampshade. Less watts than a microwave, but the power never goes out.
He told me to contain my hair. To pull the reins on my paradise. He said "They won't stop staring." He couldn't understand the mutiny. I had a Garden of Eden growing from my roots.
Perched on a hill Humble with nature's best Provider Observed Tranquilizer Keeps me sane. No human element can toch thee. Stationary, revolved around all seasons.
My mothers, my maidens, my crones,
I love you, Mother Nature and your gentle breeze I thank you, Mother Nature for the calming seas.
I love beautiful Blue Birds Beautiful birds Beautiful peddles Different flowers every where Roses are Beautiful Wind is sometimes calm The wind is sometimes very cold
-The smell of wet leaves, and seeing bald trees -Shows something to me, the the flow of things coming and going -Knowing this scene was meant to be -"Falling Into Autum" isn't an easy thing
What is my college education for
This house is hollow, these trees are artificial, I can't feel their warmnth.
Beautiful, serene, fleeting This day is just like every other Walking, talking, listening, People are oblivious to nature Tall, big, bulky
It is in nature and science that I find religion
My Mountain is my home, my fortress, my stone pedestal. My Mountain is my bread, my drink, my hunt.
A dying tree makes me weep.How beautiful it once was,how it will never be again.It’s branches no longer bend.It longs for sleepas Spring brings ever-closerits impending end.
A lofty tower looming above the others A tall man who sticks up above the rest in a crowd A tree rising above the shrubs in the mighty forest
Walking home from my grandparents' house Skin soaking up the moonlight I pass the pond Stars, pinpoints, reflect on the glassy surface The frogs along the edges engaged In a symphony of sound
Believed in what is not true, Faith is what it is, or is it? False is what I break, Truth is what I make, or do I? Destroy what I need, Create what I want, or do I?
Dear Dollar Dahlia, My childhood was spent in your bloom. I plucked your purples and pinks Reds and oranges and yellows For my mother and for the table I put your blossoms in my hair
I want to reach up and touch the tip Of the tallest tree on the tallest hill And maybe then I'll get a look At all the world and have my fill Of forests and mountains Of lakes and streams
The wind whistles,
A river, cheery and merry, Is a picture of perfect happiness. It laughs as it trips and falls, Crashing into obstacles in its way. Never angry nor upset,
I sit on a crooked tree branch Leaning against it As I stare out into the distance Mountains tower above Darkened shadows with white tips Shrouded in pale mystery Meadows crowd the land below
Rejoice! A new day is dawning
Waves splash against the cliff
Ripples drift across the surface of the old pond Small minnows dart between the gray rocks Fireflies play along the surface
The sky, as blue as a robin's egg As beautiful as a clear spring day
The forest awaits Hundred-year-old trees tower above Holding up the sky with their branches
The leaves surround me The colors inspire me Autumn is serene

When I was six, I would lift this rockthat lay between the swing set and the shedof the backyard behind the little condo off of Bear Hill Road.Underneath the stone were tiny little black spots
the sun was beating through the cracks in the branches, and my body was dripping with sweat from the short walk.
Sylvan scenes of virgin timber an enchanted forest she longs to discover where mighty oaks give inspiration and leaves aid in rejuvination she need a place to breath in the summer.
She's warm, bringing brightness at the end of each storm. Embracing morning with a kiss. Reborn. She weeps. Tears like the dew roll and wash down her cheeks.
Golden are the leaves illuminated by sun.
Oh, bear,you rage and roarincomprehensiblyYou are angry, but I don’t know why. Oh, bear,you rage and roarall the morebecause you cannot make yourself known.
What would the earth do if I outlast forever? The trees will perish The flowers will relinquish But life will continue on
It took me so long to notice the setting of the moon. The sunset is much more obvious as the moon fades away slowly like someone fades from love. The lover is infatuated with the moon
I have a fear A fear of falling Heart is calling Wanting you Body is trembling Hands are shaking Eyes are longing Mouth is wispering no Dying inside Of you not knowing You
When our species is summoned Brought from the unknown Where in is one's spirit shown? It is hidden deeply within only obviously felt when you feel it radiating remembering where
This morning I woke with you on my mind and like a child opening that gift whose contents are no mystery, I tore back the curtain. You'd be there, On your perch.
Lightly floating on a winter breeze, Swirls of white and silver twist, Blanketing the land in an ice-cold freeze. Sparkling like the finest mist, The land becomes a snowy landscape,
Wild flowers do not last forever as autumn passes
Summer rays burn,
Listen, to each of those tiny drops of rainWhispering an iridescent pattern of shallow notesTake note as wonder takes its course,
I'm throwing punches and giving kicks, performing all kinds of crazy tricks, I'm dodging bullets, dodging blades,
To take away from humanity, and to be stolen from nature. We have yet to decide which should be mandatory.
Nature is what makes up this world. Birds in their nest curled It can be rough, but somehow we make it through. You are left vulvnerable and scared, but that is what makes you grow and be stronger
In my mind My flower's
Forbidden crystals And possibilities within Soaring through the questions Revealing secrets to wanderers Unknown colors and shapes Where paradise awaits Adventures unfolding
I'm craving an adventure where it's just us,
Little fish look for food While worrying About becoming it
Ideas Like thunderbolts Fall from the sky
Tűz, Víz, Levegő, Föld Őselemek lennének ők, nevüket sokszor átkozták. Rengeteg ember életét kioltották. Velük tárgyalni nem lehet, nem állhatsz elé a futótűznek.

Nature Terrifying, Beautiful Hurts, Comforts, Captivates Confusion, Confirmation, Information, Destruction
I hope one day to be as proud as a bluejay. Standing tall and fierce, hopping about to get what I want, sure that nothing will get in my way.
whilst the trees , royal and majestic slept through the dark,
Their was a time when I was small The flowers standing proud and tall I would walk amongst the blades of grass that were taller then I And the house beneath the tree 'twas mine
This: a whirling vicious cycle underneath
The sun is up it's the crack of dawn, time to start the day. The roosters crowing, the hens are laying, through the mist of morn I see a baby fawn, time to throw the hay.
Majesty The only word to describe Tranquility The water ripples slowly under the sun The slow breathing still rock Protects the trinkling waterfall As its own Because they are one.
Dense black sky stars drip in from millions and millions of miles away. From here
A field Of untrimmed berries Lies in darkness; As a rust-redpickup Lumbers in, Sleep-eyed children Clutching Mommy Wait For something only they can hear. It gathers,
The sun is
Dead asleep , she came to liven me. We took a stroll down a perfect road. So I knew it was a dream. Finally I was able to see her soul was the remedy. She explained why the sky rained .
Gentle whispers Breezy nights Cute whiskers Soft moonlight Delicate roses Brilliant stars
She's stronger than a willow In a thunder storm Soft as a heart of gold
Looking to kill time. Thinking of taking a nap but find a trail instead. Signs at the start saying, "Under Construction." Under Construction. Nature? Under Construction? How Silly! I follow what is inside, I am nature not a sign.

The rush of the wind is like the blood of the earth, And the chime from afar is calming. The crickets are crying, Serenading the sky, As the trees oblige to the wind's calling.
I can hear the crash of the mighty waves on the shore my feet are submerged into the prickly sand
Nature teems with life My mind slows to comprehend
A path appears before you
As a baby, I laid and cried in my crib Observing the sunlight peering through my window
If you think of Spring, what do you see?Flowers, eggs, bunnies, or bees?I see the grass, green and lush;The streams filled with a serene gush.The sky is a blanket, infinite and blue;

The people of the Earth, were once married to it. In a Garden good and pure, they lived quite happily.
I would comb the beaches of garbage--sca-tter--ed trash, collect the refuse like we once collected seashells as the waves crash. And scrub off the chemicals
A world once of simplicity Has fallen into a mystery From chaos and destruction Humanity could only blossom
A summer breeze A winter’s freeze She cycles annually with ease A thankless offer And yet we rob her Of her finite gifts We take, we take She breaks and breaks

The Earth is like a caterpillar, unchanged but ready to grow. Earth's history is quite the filler,
Dewdrops cling, to gnarled branches, dressed in weathered bark, the shade of a new beginning, and saturated with the wisdom, of a humble ending.
Gentle and delicate,
I close my eyes. I want to see The canopy of oaks Dancing together Swaying Their mossy branches Back and forth To their natural rhythm I want to smell
I watched closely… Nature inspires, destroys, and sustains life; Unimaginably kind yet dangerous- All at once I could capture these mixed feelings I could understand… I want to understand…
I never fully appreciated the beauty of the world around me. Now each year it emaciates, Slowly distintigrating; leaving now beauty The full green forest; now stripped of its dignity
So Blind are we Not being able to see The beauty of Nature within It's almost as if our hearts are thin To realize what's around And to be able to hear the sound Of crickets, frogs, and trees

Sitting inside all day waiting for that one moment of feeling alive.
i am the firstborn cub to my mother and father born to complete what they lost in their own life cycles as a reincarnation sent to redeem the regrets nagging behind their sleeping eyelids.
My family stands beside me under a roof of sky
I want time To forget me
I watch her as the wind blows.
Where bramble emotion doth grow, It shall dwell betwixt my lone. Whose sedated strife sprouted with woe Forsook the rich of thy loam. Dreary, the bracken doth reach,
The arm of the wise old oak Outstretched and strong today Opening his embrace to forst children forever A walking stick for the wanderers, lost Serendipitous and temporary today
Never again will we see another day, Since we all have to play the game, To near waters filled with oil, What has become of us when we all dry and boil? Never again will we live to breathe,
Nature. It surrouds us. With its leaves, soft petals, and twisting vines it produces a never-ending beauty. It helps us relax. It helps us grow. It helps us
The coals of my forging love Smolder your fortified lips. But the fool whose refuge commends the dove, Besought conceit to our fellowship. The hearth now searing the crest,
I am a dandelion waiting to be destroyed by wishes and dreams
How I envy you, wanderer, how I envy your every move, your every emotion, your every thought. How I envy your paradise to have the stars themselves cover you as you wander eternally.
I watch as the bird flaps her wingsPropelling herself accross a distanceShe lands on a flower, delicate and whiteBreathing in the aroma, relishing the chanceThe dove, she flies around again
A breeze quietly stirs it seems to have no direction gnetly tossing my hair sending a slight chill down my spine my skin prickles up wind rushes past me then back to me again

I heard the grass is greener on the other side Only if you abide By the rules they preach to sinners Only those who reach it are truly winners And the everlasting pulsing is gone I’m coming home
I am in the temple of your dark divine With no strategy or guidance.
'round she goes like a carousel/ she was nothing (and nothing was her) she was engulfed (in an iron grip) monday to sunday twitching and waiting (for something to snap)
Is it the crickets' chirp after the whole world has quieted That fills my heart with emptiness? Or is it the nights spent alone Under these cold covers? Perhaps its the memories of once Belonging
I want to run away to some place beautiful Where the birds are singing And the trees are dancing. I want to run away to some place quiet Where the savage thoughts of my mind run silent
I feel your pain. I know the reason why you rain. Taken for granted but giving life to the seed and having the ability to wipe out a flame.
impressions left upon grounddigging deep into the earthwalk on the narrow pathjourney alone, deep in the woodswarm air fills my lungs deep breath inand out
I am amazed at the things I see The detail that went into creating this world Is mind blowing to me The simplest things get my mind racing
We waste time We taste smoke outside We don’t care We don’t share We are so focused on our miniscule lives That we don’t stop to admire the scene around us There are miracles in this world
I sit in the undying city surrounded by cement and concrete and metal. No one lives here, not really. They walk through their day alone, counting the living things they see On the fingers of two hands.
It's Autumn, leaves fall, all but one. All the leaves fall fast, all but one. There is a strong breeze, but the leaf holds onto the skinny branch. The leaves fall, all but one.
My mother of Resolution A mother of hope A listener of wisdom My detective of crime Understanding of all imperfections Loving, caring, compassionate
What would I give today To change the world To see and hear the call of the wild And how she cries out in pain The answer it seems Is that mankind has gone astray
I resent my own species for damning so many others, Extinguishing those to whom nature is also mother If I could change one thing, I would open humanity’s eyes,
I poor it on my pancakes in the morning i write on it everyday it dies it dies i want to to have privacy so I close my door i want to eat in peace so I eat at a red oak table it dies it dies
Born to a generation of kids, in which
White clouds the sky with her
The knobby boughs, like Witch's fingers, Stretch heavenward as if Trying to snatch A whiff of cloud from the sky.
It has no bounds -
A trickling brook ran through a mead, Its waters clear and cold.
At the sound of an alarm, We wake! At the smell of a brew, We wake! At the turn of a key We move! On our path to fortune, We dream, Yet, at the sight of the homeless child,
An act I can't evade Run my finger across the blade Slowly walk over to my prey Close my eyes and pray Choke the handle, begin to attack Crack
I am a tornado in constant neutrality between anger and content carrying itself on, destroying whatever is in front of me, unapologetically.
Everything is not what is seems
Nature is the only place where you can see the world for what it is. Because nature is the only place where the world is as it should be.
Wilting in winter I'm missing my sun
I sat out behind the house for hourswaiting for something to come home.It has been days since the wind has blownand I have ingested the sun to show youhow bright I really am.

Standing with knowledge roots connected to the world graceful protectors
the forest stood proud once lush and greenthe trees armed for battle with needle teethand creatures untamed and unseen
Secluded in a frozen tundra Bundled with layers of furs This trek is a hard one From what I concur To animals approaching, I thrust my spear To snowstorms on the horizon, I hide in fear
I'm listening to the rainthe way it beats upon the rooftopsThe pitter patter dribbles its wet dropsSplashing the puddles all around me
Now forever in solitude, You were quondam a token of grace. Roaming the ford of the celestial stream And belonging in my immaculate embrace. The dulcet hold you whilom knew,
Everyone knows what happens
Softly, the leaves whisper, As they move aside to let the wind pass. Obligingly the water parts, To allow a magnificent swan to dive into the deep. Meanwhile, a tiny frog hops across the leaves.
I believe that we are trapped, Inside our own little cages.
Green sprouts from the earth A new living creature's birth In the optimistic breezy day The hours run away Popping then dancing in the breeze That is the way of nature's ease
Below Apache Point Take a peek across the dry open ocean, A powerful and inspiring landscape. Reach out and Feel, Simple Harmonic Motion, as it beautifully embellishes the firey escape.
To Walk a Mile in the Rain

Bridges tumble before our eyesOur foundation giving wayAnd all that we cherishedIt’s been falling apart for a while
Bridges tumble before our eyesOur foundation giving wayAnd all that we cherishedIt’s been falling apart for a while
For many years we were planted in this soil together. We grew from seeds to saplings, our roots entangled. Now there are thick forests separating us, and I have been replanted into such foreign ground.
The sun serves you, And offers a piece of its shame. The sea is enslaved, And sacrifices it's wonder in your name. The sky is your thrall,
The orangey yellow autumn trees never looked so stunningDriving by, no one but myself at my side
Wild horses just run free Nothing to stop them, just run with the breeze They can believe in anything the world is theirs
Grains of sand wiggle their way between my impatient toes The glimmering ocean waves three yards away Surreptitious seabirds sidle towards a fisherman’s catch Timid crabs scuttle from one eroded rock to another
Crystal light reflects in a shimmering pool, hovering just below the stars which blink sleep out of their eyes onto soft breathing below. Those that hide all day come out to play, dancing through the dappled moonlight,
Mine forest, mine haven,Lovely thou art aflame.
Spying Death, He moves forward. Wating for his time, With welcoming arms. He continues. With every step, A louder breath. Earth's details grow clearer,
Red lava flows from fire-breathing beasts While ashes bury mouths, gasping for air. Remote clutched close, I stare at each deceased And blink my stinging eyes in silent prayer.
Ancient oak, tall and strong, Sheltering life beneath your branches. Rough bark acts like a robe, Protecting the wood inside. Sleepy birds rest on your sturdy arms. A crown of leaves rests on your brow,
Cold to the touch You collide with my skin While you freefall From and endless sky. I can see you Yet I see through you, For your cause is clear But your effect is color.
Like waves of tall grass over dips and bumps
On a cold autumn day there was a leaf that fell. To icy wind it was prey, rising on a western swell. It twisted and twirled
Tree Calm, shady A protective, peaceful existence Swaying, reaching, growing Cool, ancient Green
I want to sit long enough
Everything is filled to the brimwith love undying, all inclusivethere in wooden brocades and
Everyday all day , I look down. Everyday all day , all I do is observe , build and dissipate through the beautiful sky. Everyday .. Everyday.

Satan's daughter is on my shoulder; In her hand a sword of gold. So I'll stray into her garden, And I'd plant the love we know. And the moon's incoming faster,
Stand outside and breathe the air,
We are all equal We all think, breathe, eat, cry, laugh We are all human

Clashes of metal cranks and crane And the bolts, screws, and nails crashing. An industrious sphere is instigating Air is filthy, water is nasty, bottom is insane Gently, the wind folds around my body.
Growing up, I was trained just like a dog, With a conscious as blurry as the deepest fog, My tail wagged eagerly at the voices of authority, Who convinced me that what school, church, and the news told me,

engulfing me now everywhere I turn it's there the dark green menace
The water lilies spun around, dancing To the music of the watery fall. The frogs croaked in harmony, bouncing From pad to pad to, on the lilies, call. A heron flew above the earth so small.
Something told me to take a walk. I listened. I grabbed the dog and out we went Down to the woods where the wild things live.
My soul succumbs
The Stone and the River A mighty stone lies in a great river, Though the water be cold, it does not shiver.
olive green and rust brown mix light streams through the leaves and catches motes betwixt lines of sun, and displays them against the bark rough and diamond-shaped of the forest, and the song of a lark
The seed sits in the field thristy for water begging for sun light A drop of water moists into dry skin softens its body another drop falls followed by another
Watching ants mill through the cracked moss bricks, living their tiny lives. Squirming with six legs, through divets that seem like crators. Small cracks, that are mountains, Weeds, that are jungles,
Beatitude between us,Wove a cloak of blue.Rally the grove, Pan,Seraphim are true!Hearken, sweet Venus,And linger your love, too.At last, wed your myrtle, for a crown is lined with pearls anew.
The sun rays hitting my skin,
They say global warming is a hoaxI say... "thats insanely wack"I am sitting here, trying to convince you allTrying to get you join my one man wolfpack
A word to my loved ones Who still walk this earth: Do not cry for me For this body is only a shell Rather, laugh with me in the breeze Smile with me in the sunshine Drift with me on the tide
Do I dare? Capture within a photograph God’s masterpiece. The trickling sound of water whistles through the air. The green chested duckling runs across
As the sun goes down our journey starts and our feet begin to wander For hours and hours we hike, and over countless trails we ponder The journey is long and its not easy, its nothing but sweat and blood for miles
The seasons keep changing and I only grow older In the summer i am wild and free like the bonfires on the beach I am not searching for anything but simply enjoying life as it is Life is simple Then comes fall
Change flows as the rivers. Water rises, rushes, ebbs, and slows, Bestowed by the Giver. Submerge – frigid – into shivers.
The trees see it all. They live life long. And the leaves fall. A little boy will crawl.
Tumbled stones Ebbing tides Salty mist Nature's prize Breathing in Letting go
I am the one who fought for you Because it’s what you asked. I am the one who would have died for you If to me that is what you tasked.
Daylight stands apart from cold midnight. His warm smile—kind eyes—brilliance. The touch of his hand warms our insides— Keeps us safe—and– living right. Midnight shakes the bones of Children.
Little soldiers fall from the sky; Trying to capture the world below. Dressed up in coats of fair color—dive Down from their ships above—come. Pouring from ships of light air
Hands held tight:tied like twine,a sailor's knot,never to be undone; Soothing strokes:serene waves belowa light sunset,set for smooth sailing;
Walking down the street,The cold and cracked pavement,Avoiding the glares of the people that we see everyday.Just the same old faces,In the same old places,Doing the same damn thing,
You're an over-watered flowerLeft to wilt and witherTrying to find the sunBut you're trapped under a shaded spaceA lonely place.
Flowers and grass fade away, but God's word will never change, Leaves turn petals fall, Winds roar, Trees grow tall, Sun shines, Rivers gleam, From the depths of a rushing stream, Ending the river shrinks in size, To the river's great demise, Thro
— AS NATURE SUBSIDES — Water heats and cools with the tides, Up then down returning to rest, Lay it, as the sand for a nest, As nature subsides. The leaves grow, and then take the wind rides,
The wildlife is gone, there is no sound/ The Planet is dying, polution in the ground/ No one seems to care/ What will they think, when there is no air/ No oxygen to breath/ Garbage contaminating the sea/
She yells when she wantsRather, when seen fit.She treads on the flame that has just been lit. She soothes in time,Never loosing her tune.The tides retreat, but seldom the moon.
I am confronted by all their faces. The faces that say please love me In place of my owner who is an absentee. So, here I am, giving out warm embraces. I wish my work was enough,
I get up at six in the morning, to hear you go on and on, about shit that makes me start snoring. When the whole class fails a test you blame us, because teacher knows best.
If only I had wings. I would fly.I would fly not with the wind, but against it.I would not flow with society.
Mother Earth rejoices hymns of children cradled in branches birthed by her human mothers Mother Earth rooted in pain endurer of vain bears blessing, sends prayer
I know not the day I woke to your trees up high. I know I was awake all along somewhere deep inside.
Orange hues streak through A stretch of sky, brilliant fire The sun bathes anew
As I drive to my grandma's houseBy myself for the first timeI breathe in slowly as to notBreathe too much car exhaust.
