thickets of ivy bathtubs of mud a consortium of bubbling bleating hearts slipping, sliding gliding with  powers of croaking warlocks from stick to rock-- careful, hold on,
in the ponds of mountain no tomorrow mother loon croons her songs of sorrow and though the tufts of storms blow by she will not quit her phantom cry the corpses of canoes will sink and lift
Coal nights are beauty When stars asleep, sound and tight. There's a lullaby.

The sun smiled to me. As she gently touch my cheeks, With her loving rays.
I gazed upon the darkest sky and then I saw -- The stars. They flash like fiery embers through and through -- To east, to west. They're everywhere. To north to south Like precious jewel there, so distinct and rare.

Sometimes at night as the sun is setting, Falling below the hills like an old balloon, I see them. Mountains in the sky Ominous mounds of magic or cloud

Did you see her falling from the sky? Drenched in a stardust cloud. Free spirit like the eagle that flies above. Far away from the maddening crowd.

The river flowing. The sound of it on it's way. Fish tagging along.   (A Haiku)
Clouds float high in the sky. They are the apple of my eye.   They are so far, yet so near. They are so solid, yet so clear. How fast and scattered they can change. Yet, they are never in dissarange. 
Gurgling, gurgling Soft ripples water slapping against the pebbles  pushing the verdant calamus   On the beach
The Wolf Pass by AM King In spring’s horse ride through the mountainous pass, Early morning’s dusted  with snow that fell. The horses uneasy, picked up a smell, Became more unsettled in the crevasse.

Sun beams drew me to the river’s edge, Pulled me knee deep in a mound of sedge. Light’s encompassing aura of gold, Took a grip on me with a bold hold. Looking down to see what was above,

In all the years I have walked among oaks , I’ve seldom sat and let their allures soak. With their limbs , on hikes ,I’ve bumped my head. Roots caught my boot ,on the floor I spread.
I appeal to you to cease the continuous mayhem you bring upon me but you have turned deaf ears to my plea. My blue skies on high are no longer clear, my bright stars are now dimmed by your constant pollution.

Unequivocal contentedness.    A trusty oak never fails to satisfy the search for philosophical soundness within one's soul.   Branches so perfectly placed the seem to represent a geometric phenomenon.
A world once beautiful, Now dreary and pained, The grass still grows, But dead the living stay, Trees aech up to touch the sky,  And down to reach the river's underside, The flowers are quaint,

There I was, sitting. Chest deep in freshly powdered snow as the flurries nipped at my face.

Flowers dance to the wind Such wonderful show Roses bloom Daisy sings   There is no sign of doubt The fields are nothing but clear

A dazzling Gleam of wonderous joy Such a dangerous yet entertaining toy The fire dances a whimsical jig It leaps and sparks and grows to be big.   Man needs fire as fire needs fuel

They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Yet grass continues to grow every time it is cut. The sun continues to rise every time the moon has pulled it away.
I never understood the word moonbeam until I saw one. A stream of milky white on a canvas of dark and unforgiving ocean. The moon seemed to paint a streak down the middle as if someone had dropped the paint brush.
Fixated on the grain,  Time lapses slowly. My fingers find the clay.   Treading empty spaces,  And filling cracks,  I go.

Finding a playmate in a flower, tree, sunlight Showering the sky with love for the rain that pours over  Toes, into cupped
Leaves  Falling away from their home Some with struggling grip on the emptiness around them. God wishing to turn over anew,
A flashing of emerald trees fly by, Rusty brick buildings move just as fast, racing the trees. Sweat drips from a temple, down a neck,  Tangling with short streaky hair.
I hate the rain. It's cold and unforgiving fall keeps me from fun. I hate the rain. The weight of it when it falls from my eyes is to heavy for my heart to carry. I hate the rain.
I looked outside the window. It wasn’t pretty or serene Trees were bending, ducking for cover  and snow hit the ground with a scream. Unsure, I asked, “Is this a blizzard?”

The reflection in the pond of the five flowers that bloomed on the bank displayed like towers to my floor level frame.   Surrounded by the dirt and decomposed, and the water swamping my sorrowed leaves

San Juan, Ponce, Caguas My island, my home 4,600+ swept under a political rug Our so called president Complained about the cost While souls where being lost Now the blame is being tossed

The maple leaf, in order to better describe it, is a masterpiece as seen by taking its stem and tracking its vestiges of the past, while taking care not to tear it or twist or step on it.
The stars tumbled down at once, White diamonds upon fragile palms. Hazy sapphires festered and fused, As if Van Goh’s Starry Night
Blazing, the brazen orb frenzied with greatFlashing, its flame in crackling blasts of heat.Fusion follows fission in frantic gait.Bloated gluttony or the bawdy teetIt slavishly seeks to gulp, whorish trait! Yet Helios possesses grave powers.Explos
3:46 a.m.  on a post-rain Kansas Monday.  I try to wash away  the sleepiness from my insomnia laden eyes, pick a fresh sheet of paper spread clean it almost sheens,
  So it begins. The temperature rises. Everyone's running amok Willing to do whatever it takes To make the loudest sounds Find the one, Reproduce,  Die,  So the ones after me
Why do you scowl at the thought of me, But bolt in the other direction when you see me? I’m like you, i live in fear, always running. And we both live in the woods.

   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

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.

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,

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;
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
She planted beautiful flowers All with different colors and different namesThey all had different needs non e were the sameShe took as much care of them as she could She watered them and loved them She always said they were ugly and they weren't g
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,
Twenty-second hour, 
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
Look outside and see A willow tree dancing free, A butterfly flying high Look outside and see
Lay in colorful flowers Made colorful life possible See as a followers Run in Sunset Make one' life spark Sparks the life of a dream Fill thousands of sky Paint them easily See them cryin'
As time passes like a wave, I've learned more and more about myself. I've learned I am quite brave, I can forgive and forget without knowing. As I get older, its easier to behave. 
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.  
The portrait of countless colors Dancing thrrough the endless sky No words can describe the beauty That everyday will pass us by What a comforting presence The sun as it kisses the Earth
The cold breeze caresses my faces as blades of grass gently prick my back. The little voice in my head instructs to inhale and exhale, to relinquish any worry, frustration, or hate. 
You and me Climbed together on the mountains To find peace but couldn’t find You and me Flew together up above the blue skies To measure the height of nature But could not measure
Sneakers laced up tight, Water bottle filled to fullest height. It may take a drive short or long but Always, I long to take a hike.   Nature beckons me to explore;
Upon a night with starry sky A spring-winter mist that flutters by Young crickets chirp a tune so deep Since the birds have now all gone to sleep   'Neath a tree so draped with vine
You’re an amazing angel, from the heaven, Your eyes allure me, to drown into blue ocean, Inspire with your intimate, intoxicating ways, Recalling memories of childhood rainy days.
When first shower of monsoon Touched the emotions Of my innocent heart Its strings began to ring Drops of rain began to open The windows of my heart And with its tender touch
My teacher always said,   Go home and write A whole bunch tonight And let words flow form you- Then, it will be true.   I have lived in St. Louis for nine years.
Fallen Shoulders Once Raised High Gardens Growing Up like Vines Flower fields place their Roots Deep within the Spine they Loop Beneath Between Around About The Cord that Dances Up to the Crown.
Every morning I wake at 4 AM. I wake at 4 AM and I am ready to be free. I am alone, walking the streets of darkness and wonder,  enjoying my time for me. I realize that this is who I am, the girl who wanders
What do I do when life gets rough,  when stress makes me feel like I've had enough? What I like to do is sit down and breathe, especially when I've found a good book to read. 
In a day are so many sad hours You may think I'd spend them alone But I give love to happy flowers And they make me feel at home
Arms reaching for camaraderie   Fingers intertwining in wooden harmony   Hugs paper-thin mutually caressing   Weathered hearts
Trees come in forms both tall and short  Rooted where they stand    Each day they have the same view  Of the world and its busy inhabitants below 
Rain-laden clouds Swept Over the land, Meeting with The untouched Dusky sky, Heralding the treacherous, Disastrous deluge from the Heavens that was Yet to come.
The Land of Trees A Place that's quite green. Filled with lush and so many hearts. The beauty it offers is a luxury. Nature is so vast... there is so much we can do. But I warn you...
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.  
Up on the hill by the mansion Beneath a loud luminous sky Clouds race in from the North- A rogue storm nears. Gusts of wind demolish fields and trees A blur of brown, orange, and green fly by.  
Love is nothing but human nature  It's like the wind I can't see it but I can feel it when it's coming And I'm standing in the eye of the hurricane with you I didn't see this coming 
Thorns reside on a crown where roses once grew Spiraling outward towards the heavens with the arrival of spring It’s winter now. What was once a fiery bush of life
Dusk had fallen and gone was day, Once gold meadows faded away. Such then was time  for us to find a place for us to play. Swift movement-we were alight, Like a candle glowing bright!
Look past the outskirts of the town of stray men Where none think to trod A black wall caging in the livestock All together lost within an arbitrary boundary   Run blindly past the seam of shadow and light
In the summer dawn I took to the mountain and field, Hopping the creek, and breathing the spearmint yield. Passing the pond, I startle the heron perched in the pine,
The breeze is a seasonal fling, A swagger that comes by surprise, Swooning my entire existence An invisible veil inviting me to come unto it To embrace what it has embraced on many
Mountains and canyons beyond what eyes can see The clay earth beneath is subliminally icy Misty air follows me along the path I savor its taste as it swirls in wrath
My sun, my moon, my sky.All flow through me like a barren Forrest flooded by a nearby stream. I ask that you flowthrough my being as would a breeze.As tenderly as your accepting warmth, illuminate my body from the inside so that my heart will be f
As the light shines around me/       all I can see/ is the world broken to pieces/glass is shattered/scattered on the ground/there is no more green/rather everything is gray and brown/death hangs in the air/the fresh air is knocked out of me/what
A cool waterfall To a rushing river far Flowing to the sea
The gusts of wind through the trees sound like laughs and gasps of ecstasy the sharp grasss grabs at my back to keep me grounded next to roots of trees   Then I hear the bugs buzz behind my ears
  Into her torn shoes fell the rocks. She let them crumble, let herself bleed. Trudging towards her tryst with trees, under battered broken branches she
  Into her torn shoes fell the rocks. She let them crumble, let herself bleed. Trudging towards her tryst with trees, under battered broken branches she
I know that there’s a clearing’s reprieve for weary travelers: ones with honey thoughts, those like geodes, us like patient coal.   I’ve never ever seen that lake but I hear
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 want the shoreline, the foamy white waves colliding into rock like soldiers sparring in battle; the horizon brushed with soft strokes of lavender, rose pink and azure; the low-toned
I cannot shake this feeling Like an itch you cannot scratch, Sitting under darkened skies Ready to collapse.
Silhouetted trees Line dusked beach skies, As subtle breeze Blows, All is calm, Earth sighs.
Dedicated to my dear cousin Emily Grace Waller   A flower blooms in an unexpected garden Petals, like ribbons, dancing in the wind Memories of the dichromatic boats we rode in. Giggling grins in the campers…
Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz The picket-fathers of modern psychoanalysis And medicine Gnashing our flaws away in gory applause
Your leafless soul It clings to me as Ivy might grace A burdened home. Entwined, we are, In mossy grandeur That shelters those Who seek solace In emerald canopies.
The air is thick but the breeze runs swiftly, And the road winds daintily As you drive us to our favorite place. The one we know so well From years of picnics and adventures,
And for the fleeting moment In which your eyelashes grew As tangled roots -- blooming Amidst and within my own -- The feathers of swallows burst From the blades of my shoulders
And right now I'm the only girl living In this silent, sleeping city Because I've tasted the bittersweet Of your rosy tenderness And I've felt the exhilaration of flight Just after the birds have gone to bed
Heaven's soft rain dusts my soul Tinting my skin a rosy gold I'm swamped by tears inside this skin How long to bring outside what's in? Halfway between the Earth and sky
It takes me back to when I was young, Bold. Fearless, and told to “Rub some dirt in it,” Before being fit into a mold And told That this is what life is.
Here is the trail; right over the hill Runs that my soul sang out along; You can see my secret creek in the ravine still, with my makeshift bridges choked in winter’s grip.  
My wildflower, forest sprite— I'll paint you pictures of all your light For words could not do it justice.   Imagine myriads of stars Above the velvet tops of trees —The greenest in the forest for you—
Lift me up in fingers of wind Let me float freely in their grasp May clouds carry me gently Make me balance on horizons Have stars sing me to sleep Hear the moon make a melody
I hear you I hear you in the pouring rain... Words Words that cannot escape my brain. The unexplained
here are the folds of the world, the softness of its childbearing are the clouds, slate blue, drifting in softhorizontals; if not for the shore to cut everything
I taste the magic when it begins to seep, heady, sweet; the soft slip into darkness. You are so beautiful-I don’t know what it is, but your wizened trees and your sweet
The sun shining happily, Warming the sandy stretch, Dipped into the swaying mass of Cold, salty water.
I would visit the nature preserve on a sweet summer day, Sun beating down on my latina skin, With the breeze whistling through my hair, And through my dark eyes I saw bright, wondrous images.  
I want to make a distinction Between “human” and Homo sapiens “Human” is my choice Homo sapiens is my species And I want to make a distinction Between “animal” and “Animalia”
I'm so impressed that the rain keeps pouring even when it knows it makes people sadI'm so encouraged by the persistence of the droplets as they cling to my window I'm inspired by the drumming of the thunder and the flash of the lightning Oh how th
The sun cascades across my skin like a golden wind and warms the spirit of my soul. I could walk its rugged path a thousand times and always find something new to love: a forgotten smell,
Help me, with a Clarity of Feeling.   Naturally, as much as we can,  I must feel it.   Help me, Be at Peace with my Heart. I love Trust love.   Naturally,
I am sinking.   I am sinking, and I can't remember -  where I started or why I am here?   The azure Sky, the open Sky Open. I scent the Earth in myself . . .  I am sinking.
The scenery changes As day becomes night Nature takes its course With the moonlight shining bright Nothing ever stays the same Moments will come to pass Embrace the life that you live
Flash-lights turn on. She stands center stage, clothed in a smile. The audience is a roaring lion; Its prey makes no attempt to evade. She tames the lion gracefully, and praces away.
I stared at a blade of grass with a dewdrop on its tip anf on its dewy crown I watched a rainbow shift   I stared for so long a time and moved only from my place to let its sparkling mysteries
“Evening Suns” Twilight sets as a black night approaches Stars twinkle passionately “Morning Stars” Crack of dawn greets us before noon is here
I love nature With all the trees and the bee's And the I love yous   
I was walking in the woods one day In the merry month of May   (couldn't resist) I was smoking a fatty Hey, what can I say   I stopped by this stump I had to take a wee When a big hairy dude
Poety is a part of me The buzzing of a bee you hear The gleaming mirror you see All I can let out is a dry tear  
With eyes closed I venture far through the depths of the sea With eyes closed I feel the waves crashing against my legs, subtly, but there She's my muse, she's my medium She's the freedom I yearn for but never grasp
See through the eyes What falls in-between Touch with the tips And feel the breeze Taste with the lips And smell through the pits The tears I bleed And what nature relieves  
Earth was herewhen the time beganand when life emergedfrom the depths of eternity. And into that eternityit will go on,round and round,dancing, anddrawing the circles of life.
Cycle 1   A black sky above Soft light illuminates all Watch the world below   Darkness spreads comfort A blanket for them to rest
You can't describe the way I feel
Mother earth , Not just a planet but of so much worth,  Not just crust, mantle and core but our girth. Billions of years ago she was born  fully loaded with recipe for life 
The trees--they quiver with life.Yes, all around me,They shake with strife.Their bones, bare of bark,They're stark white cast in dark.Sister stars shoot to earth,Little pricks of light plunging-
I love you like the sun loves the earth, It rises each morning just so it can gaze upon the earthly beauty, Just as I awake every morning so that i may look upon your beautiful face. My darling, You are my world.
I love the spring mornings, when the warm breeze kisses me as the stars are going to sleep  I get lost in the many melodies that the birds sing  I laugh at the way that the sun has to shine so brightly because it loves to be the center of attentio
i. the cacophony of capitalism mutes the euphony of birds   ii. you can still hear it the harmonizing of birds against the white noise of construction
hanging like little cosmic clouds not knowing how transiently they will be pruned to adorn synthetically scented rooms
During every season, I see you standing tall Through winter, summer, spring and fall For some reason you seem oh so different from other trees
 The rays from the sun hits the earth’s surfaceGiving animals and plants heat, it is nature’s furnace.Many strain to reach the desired lightBut one flower finds it too bright.The Casablanca Lily makes her appearance in the darkThe pale full moon i
I’ll take you on this journey; across warm bars of sand, over regal mountains resting in the verdant pastures. Embrace the treasures of soil beneath your naked feet.   As your soul tremors
For those of you who think you know me I am just a resource. Something to burn in the fireplace to mix with another resource and written with. To mash up and write on, I am the back drop of your life.
I went walking the other day, Under a red and setting sky. Through trees that made mountains small, Their leaves whispering a sigh.  
Beauty is... A waterfall trickling into a small pond, Moss carpet cushioning the animals as they drink, Where people have not roamed Beauty is... The enchanted forest that comes alive
Ah, the...”age old” question. If you suddenly became Tom Hanks in one of the movies that he surely has pasted onto his résumé by now, but you got to take one thing with you, what personal item would you take?
all i need is the sky, everything she has--    whispers            dreams everything she gives-- raindrops           color           lights   i thank her with blue passion,
It came before us all And will continue after we have left.   It lives in birdsong In ocean waves on sand And in the heartbeats of every one of us.  
"Work smarter not harder" is the one thing i came to conceive in a deserted location home or work an idea that provides in order to receive
It’s crisp and clear It can suddenly appear It’s cold or hot It’s necessary for a yacht It’s refreshing and thirst-quenching Sometimes it’s drenching It’s cooling in the heat and freezing during sleet
As the boats in the harbor relinquish their sails And the ebb and flow caresses the shales The waxy moon ascends the skies So mermen and women can close their eyes  
We went on adventures and saw neat things. We followed the music in hopes for our hearts to sing.
With our telescope we stole looks at the stars, sliding on pine needles stabbing softly into our backs but it was the night that stole us.  
Sometimes the birds will sing on Sunday Sometimes the birds won't sing Sometimes the flowers bloom early Sometimes it snows in Spring   Sometimes the sun sleeps at twilight Leaving a painted sky
Fluttering wings mark a descent from the skyGossamer weight that bends the stemThe Butterfly drinks the Aster dryAnd without a thought, takes to the heavens again
Moonset is the sunrise The juxtaposition  Of darkness and mellow light Vast blackness That enveloped every corner of the Hemisphere Consumed by dissipating orange, mauves and chartreuses 
            by A. Gagliardi    I wanted the moon to fill up the night like a presence we couldn’t ignore, to shine bright as day in the dark quiet air like’s  been told in stories of yore.  
              For months it has been cold; stuck inside our lukewarm homes and off-brand fur coats             Either taking the bus to school in the windy snow or the trains on the tracks, people with their schoolbags and totes
I need an escape. I need a chance to let everything drop from my shoulders. Hiking, plodding along, even feeling that burn in my lungs clears everything away.
The golden trees and the silver star beckon beyond the realm of understanding, And make real the redemption of the uncertain heart.
when i say you are beautiful i am not forgetting.   perhaps in beauty nature boasts the pain of life   and within you uncorrupted lays a secret garden   and within you
Find the beauty in everything As nature takes its course Let nothing stand in the way Not even the fierceness of a tender force Everyday is a blessing Another opportunity to make your life grand
Touch is a sense of teaching; Exploring the world. To know you're home. Defining your perception of "beauty". Making memories. To be exposed to what we call... ...Life... Living without this,
winter used to mean angel feathers tickling red noses and cheeks.   you'd want me to laugh again, but all i feel on my face are ashes.
“Don’t forget your roots,”They always say.“Don’t forget your roots.”The great oak always continues to growas long as its roots are growing,but as its trunk is growing significantly
The transition from child to man is one of the biggest leaps,
The rhythm of my heart is no rival For the movement of your wandering eye. Her lithe figure signals her arrival My cadence lulls, watching, undignified
Wisdom in each droplet like a sea of broken roads with each forgotten memory to lighten the weight of loads . For every breath forsaken and every tear forgiven
A cloud so unreliableto provide such decent shadethough many stop to watch themthey're perfect, they're God made..They're made of wispy waterso white up in the skycollections of lovely ice
Lush and leafy trees erect Sway to the music of a fading day Crickets one and all come out And tune their violins to play.   Colors fade from a purpling sky And the stars reveal their splendor bright.
I’m a traveler. The world is mine to explore and I’m the world’s to intrigue. A knock at Adventure’s door will surely lead to proceed
Standing on the highest cliff, Overlooking the forest, She nods to the caring hawk That wonders what could possibly be wrong With such a perfect creature. She watches over the sleeping cougar,

Forever my thoughts bend to you Like the leaning of a tree to to the wind   Forever my eyes turn to you Like the search of a flower for sunlight  
I fell into his eyes...
Dream Jess was a goddess  she was glowing in a field we decorated everything the sky and the ground and ourselves we slept in the same bed shared a blanket, stayed real warm
Far far away. Stranded, alone. A new life awaits, from all I have known.   The one thing I want, the one thing I need, is simply a book, belonging to me.  
Nature is taking its course Things will eventually change Nothing will ever stay the same Moments and objects will be rearranged Obstacles will often try to deter you You may fall before you rise
On an island In outer space Across the world I couldn’t stay There Here Anywhere
While the world does offer a rare ocean of inspiration to pull from which sadly few people tend to find, the waves calm, for I can live without.
You ask me what I need As if without air I can still breathe, Without water or sunlight I'll be fine. So All necessities aside, I guess I need the world.  It's a lot to ask, but 
The wind rushed quietly as I made my way down the backroads of my small town Picking up speed, cruising as if there was all the time in the world The sky was a lilac blanket, quiet and still
Between my fingertips I hold the key to self destructionWith no instruction but to inhaleDeep and fast to make the head rush last and with destruction in handLooking around I suddenly noticed something
Like the leaves drift through the wind, They start from somewhere not knowing their end. Their frail fragil bodies supported by the air, Forgetting their burdens under its care.  
please listen to the silence of my heart so you, my love, may be spared from the grief
Gradually gray transitioned to soft pink and lilac, The clouds finally dispersing after everlasting months of bleakness. The fingers of the sun stretched out sleepily, clumsily
Prancing around Lillies marked the destination of a new place. Inside of a cave I dropped my bag on concrete steps and sat ontop of a hill from the wooden old house. Washed away by the wind were roses, sunflowers, and rabbits.
Calm and graceful, Fluttering in the wind Their attraction to bright colors Of flowering plants Their life span so short, Yet their wisdom so great Beautifully inspiring                             
"The Fated Flower  The Final breath                  Understand,                   A fate called death The gentle lion The loyal horse                     May have seen,
"The darkness of a shadow The trickle of a stream The sweet grass in a meadow] As light cuts through the trees The little barn owl swoops low As a mouse rustles the leaves
a november leaf, you turn it over anew. lying in wait, you murmur and coo. dead grass beneath, it’s just outside of your reach.
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.
(If I were stranded on a deserted island I would bring my love and respect for nature with me). I sat up on the hill, My gaze caught the shore, forest, and stream, Oh, what a thrill! T’was the most glorious dream,
It never occurred to meto settle for beinga passing wind, I demand to be anearth-shattering quake. So how to be that?
An expert in the foresta predator at best Bright orange against the deep greenlanguage narrowed to growls Sharp canines ready to eatSpeed and precision their friends
Fierce they seem towards each otherThey are the most loyal of animals Always together like a familyNever traveling alone They depend on each other for survival
The breeze is gentle against the skinas it gets close to winter School starts, but that is the only downsideIt isn't too fierce or too scarce
Blazing heat cripples us to nothingWater is begged to be usedThe harsh sun so hot  
Love fulfills the air Excitment rushes the animals After pain and hardship, newborns are here Curiosity is our energy For Spring is full of happiness
Cold is the only word to describethe beauty of the ice snow. It's hand is wrapped around usfor only a few months White accompanies the stormsof this dreadful, beautiful time
i think of you and the butterflies, swarming my stomach, swim up and up to my throat in a gums are growing flowers, making meadows of messages i can only wish to speak to you.
Its marveling bliss in one lick Its pleasing reprieve in summers' dread Its cooling head in summers' rays the ice cream drips on the sidewalk under the tree atop the worm beneath the bee
I may not have all that I could And life has taken more than it should But music stays right by my side here
The fountain with a pond, Sheds light in the dawn As two little ducklings swam Gliding through the water to land. The male duck stretched and cawed The female duck tucked and cleaned
As I revoke my heart  Don't regret loving me As the breeze flies, so do I And yet, I am tangible   The trees do not guide me  I bend them to my will As the river flows, so do I

Everyone has a vision Things are seen in a different light From every mountaintop As day turns into night While traveling along Sights will constantly change As the journey continues onward
such grace as is given to placate Divine: façade to consume hallowly time   theatrics ere soul and a mind bent by minds the ultimate boon but a hope for sublime  
I take leave of my fortress, crossing that curious threshold. I find myself enveloped by a dazzling palette of crimson and saffron: a glorious manifestation of Divine artistry.
You always told me I reminded you of red roses And suddenly I’m nine years old Dirtying my favorite white dress in a garden I’d sneak out to Picking petals off of sunflowers
My bones hang loose. Shaking unconsciously With no rhythmic tune. There’s gravel in your eyes. Was that from when I Tried to run away? Did I spew up the ground when you Said it's too late? Now you're begging me to
From visions far away Things appear to be unclear Uncertainty may fill the air Causing people to live in fear In those dark moments You can always find yourself In the midst of pandemonium
The ship will continue to travel As the waves come about There may have to be a change in its course That my friends is no doubt Continuing to sail at sea The vessel will carry its mission
Snow Pure white snow Tainted with scarlet petals Flowers of blood Blossoming   Broken Bent, broken and breathless
Howling lion Endlessly prowling in blue Temperament As quick as wind Ships ride rippling fur Visited By popular activity
Steps she steps Thoughts forgotten Movements driven Purely Buy the sound The smell The taste Natures tears
I walk a long and lonely path Faithful shadow since left my side Trees are my sole comfort Yet comfort they do not provide The shadows have stolen the moon
A vast, endless green field Overwhelms me with its beauty The soft, billowing breeze won't yield How I wish you were here with me Flowers of ev'ry hue Dance so slowly to the wind's beat
I am a seed about to break free. stretching my roots outaward, toward water, toward sunlight. I am a sapling learning to thrive. on my own, opening my eyes. I am a tree
    In beauty The common saw thistle Disintegrates  In my proximity  Soars to fly free  As captured moments Take flight  In my thoughts Charm the sun-lite clouds High above;  
Often I look up to the Skies Relishing the beauty it holds Adorned at night by twinkling Stars And daily by the fiery Sun The full moon so enthralling The wavy Clouds so gorgeous
Those winter leaves are wanting me I used to be a quiet girl I used to sit in nature, hidden from the world Those winter leaves are calling me Pushing me to be the best I can be
You remind me of nature, I love it so much. It's perilous but safe, A little bit of it all. Cold or hot, Rainy or not, Peaceful and beautiful, It's all I'll ever want.
Watching a mammoth glacier As it moved slowly across the blue and red seas A ship made of gold and myrrh Set adrift to follow the breeze.   Its body was pure snow
Cascading inward cutting amble down across sticks   Into the blacked, moonlit night Creating an orchestra throughout the forests from mountain to sea consisting only of chirps      and clicks
Water from the sky Falling like tears from an infant’s eye Multitude of tiny drops Watering many farmers’ crops   Rain is destruction
Blooming flowers red and white Petals dancing in the morning light Beautiful ballet in the wind Twirl about till they land   Sitting down to rest In the shade, for a picnic is best
I am not grass. You cannot plant me To then cut me down. I am not a lawn.   I am not a plant anchored by roots. I fly across the sky. I am not their lawn.  
The air is stiff, as if the wind is holding its breath,  and there is a coolness to the air, soothing, calming, peaceful. The grass is soft from where I'm sitting, as if inviting me to stay and enjoy the moment.
They have stood their lastBut autumn is comingAnd the trees are the firstTo succumb to the changing days.Their leaves no longer lively and green,But now gorgeous shades of yellow and red.
I adore the wind; It’s comfort over rules every And any single thought I have had. Shall the gust turn strong Or the movements go astray It is here to accompany me Even if I’m not here stay.
The hardwoods cry in color this time of year As the sun sets an owls call from within the deep hollow can be heard clear There is no path to follow, not one less traveled by, no direction to steer
mountain high  valley low orange leaves earthy scent sheer beauty mother nature wondrous creation foggy sunrises slanting sunlight the edge of forever gentle slope
I'll fly away again High in the sky toward migration. As civilizations increase Our species continues to weep. The more land you conquer Forces more stress And Less flowers.
Although I've strayed far from home Mother always has a place for me She reintroduces to her elaborate home
On nights when onyx raindrops start to fall, I’m often met by memories that I miss. The way you shone, like Helen, o’er them all, The way your ruby lips had felt to kiss. I think of how I held you ‘neath the sky,
These vertical floors constrain thought; Internal desires are now fought, Tides surging splatters all around The artists mind, no reward found.   Each color streams grey from pallettes:
Night’s existence has inhabited it’s customary frame of space, which has been allotted.
Haphazardly beautiful rocks Spewed onto the Ground bright and Safe through eyes of Blue Shade so sweet to eyes of brown red eyes see it Dead, Rustic eyes Move fast and catch a glimpse
Young men sit under an indigo sky patient. Poles extend over water meanwhile   The first fisherman stops over taken in thought for in his haste he has neglected his eyes.  
Forever crow another one Chips and chirps of unseen ones The voices I once heard begin to fade As the voices die down Mother nature begins to speak Her whispering soul flows through the trees
Barefoot river child Dirty hands, dirty eyes What have you seen? Remember the days  Forget those nights Please just sing with the chickadees There's laughter in the sun above
The beginning was harsh Lava everywhere and with no life form Thunderstorms braking out eveyday Tornadoes hitting the ground tearing up the lands Tsunamis covering the lands Hail dropping from the sky
(This note is not part of the poem, but this poem is part of the May set)
I walk beneath,
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--  
Our journey is about to begin The trek is high The time is nigh Up we go over rocks and rubble A few do fall A frightened call But still we climb; higher and higher One final leap
Beyond the sea lies the horizon.Go! Will you make it there? The snow flake will not hesitate to boast its intricacy. Examine! Can you see a pattern or perhaps a maze?
Johnny came to visit when I was nine He only had the chance to just that one time He still smiled as often as he always did But his smile seemed almost crooked I asked him why that was and he said:
The page screams out A  faintly blinking blank screen in front Of the pale face of the writer.     She stares with list Disappointment at her failure to subsist on the great words of those
Breaking silence, her voice, quiet hope to create
There is nothing like walking in the rain, Feeling nature's power in the rawest form, The rain, falling like angel's tears upon you, Shattering against your skin, giving the world vegetative life from sorrow,
Can You See?   Have you ever wondered how a cave would react if light would stream in unashamed?   Could you imagine the things you could see
There’s an abandoned lot beside my bus stop, a barren block of concrete vacated after floodwaters swept the local businesses away I’ve crossed this lot for years, at dawn with puffy red eyes and midnight with blisters on my feet
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  
I sat amongst the weeds and felt their stalks twist against the wind into my torso and catch on the invisible hairs of my arms, a push and pull in time with the rhythm of the blanket beating
Your body is not a temple; it's a tree.  Equipt with branches for limbs and leaves for all the little in betweens. Trees are meant to grow strong for years and years with their roots consistently reaching further.
Gonna leave this city behind And make a new life.  Hooded with mystery 
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 forest,
. pain, tears, and suffering disappointment in yourself and others’ disappointment in you   anger, hurt, and screaming
You came like storms in a drought. Perfectly wild. I come from where the sky is always yellow and the fruits grow upside down. Your soul in particular, like mangos, I steal a taste whenever I find time to browse.
The beauty in life is its artwork. I'm not talking about the paintings, sculptures, or photographs that fill the walls of museums, although they are magnificent too;
“Tired of hurricanes or tornadoes carrying away your home?
Outside in the midst of nature and a boundary set by humans 
I feel, A special kind of green today.  Blue's just too wholesome, 
Everything is Awesome Why, because I’m crazy So while I’m outside walking through the storm Others are tucked away in comfort; lazy
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,
Diseases are taking overAnd sicknesses have prevailedIn this chemical world of oursMan playing God has failed.And it's not just the pills we takeBut the chemicals in our stuff
The furious sunflower grewup and out fromthe moronic cliffin adversarial passiondespising the repressionto bloom in magnificent effulgenceagainst the odds of austerity.
When Mother sent me out to playJust in the garden there,I saw a flower in the bedA crimson rose of deepest redI drew my sword, beware.Imagine now Red Dragon’s glareHis eyes sun fire hot,

    ...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 lost another poemthis morningin the early airbetween my home and my carI failed to net itput it in my poem jarit flew awaywill it be aroundsomewhereover therewhen I get back?
No hawk ever spoke onthermodynamicsyet they soar on columns of air—Sometimes I see the pillars in the sky(a colonnade of winds)I enter in at the palace gate. .
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
The Begining
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
I see t
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
(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.
