Can you feel it? The mist in the air And the rain in your hair As concepts become a blur And deception is more. While humming birds destroy
The wind whips me, yet I don't fall.The rain rolls down my back.Thousands of my twins stand tall.Together we stand and will not crack.
We are mysterious creatures,
What are we? what are we but a mere two specks on a world of seven billion? what is our world but an average-sized sphere amongst a limit of spheres to which we know no bound?
If a child throws a fit in the store, If a man drinks, drives, and wrecks, If the rainforests are being depleted,
You belong in a home with locks on all the windows attached to a chair being spoon fed with therapy and pills that hold your sanity.You know all to well that your head is more of a prison than this cell.
Came unto us was a machine A device An aid The people say
Initially I was a Marketing
Initially I was a Marketing Major Set up to learn in the prestigious Isenberg School of Management Where I would become an aspiring businesswoman Where I would first change physically
My mothers, my maidens, my crones,
I love beautiful Blue Birds Beautiful birds Beautiful peddles Different flowers every where Roses are Beautiful Wind is sometimes calm The wind is sometimes very cold
A dying tree makes me weep.How beautiful it once was,how it will never be again.It’s branches no longer bend.It longs for sleepas Spring brings ever-closerits impending end.
I wash the dishes with phosphates And they go outside, down the drain. They land in rivers with that now have chemicals in their gills. I water the flowers with oil that leaks from my car.
Leaves fall from a Tree, Landing on the lifeless Earth, Life leaves its Branches.
memories handsome street
Life once created a soul with mighty dreams and hopes Yet it only took a man to destroy it
Poison drips from my lips, I slowly drip my head back as I drink. Slowly I wait. Shouldn’t it have worked by now? The way I see it Everything kills. Everyone dies for one reason or another.
Destruction, Construction, Obstruction, Trail down the roofs And back to the Earth. Empathy fills the darkness, Flooding the evening in tears As troubled thoughts linger
When will the people see?
The road almost meets the skyas I drive my tiny green caracross the bridge. Its like I can imagine my car fallingoff into the oblivion belowthe bridge, at least from thesight I see.
Inertia is a lie Somewhere along the way our feet lost touch with the bare earth and now our roots have shriveled up and now our roots are homeless
If rebirth was an option, or reincarnation a possibility... I would be scared to be a human again.
There is a war waging on this world. It is waged by every country, every boy and girl. Every stream, every ocean feels the war’s pain. And water fights back with acid rain.
A path appears before you
The world has turned its face from the Sun, And I don't know if it will turn again. In the dark black I stumbled over the Earth crying-confused Roadburn on my knees, gravel imprints in my gray-pink palms
I breathe the shade beneath your morelsBathe in the pockets of your capFilled with the glistening dew that stems from the canopy above usI reach through the soilGrasp tight to the feldspar within the crust
Who shall fly towards the mineral soil? Who ought to fade when the flakes lighten the grass? Who must revisit the ocean sky to accompany the blossoms?
I would comb the beaches of garbage--sca-tter--ed trash, collect the refuse like we once collected seashells as the waves crash. And scrub off the chemicals
If I could change the world I'd change the way we live today Change the way we think And change the way we perceive If I could change the world I'd fly around a mountain high
Earth is such a wonderful place to live, It is such a shame humanity takes yet fails to give. The consistency of life continues to unfurl, The ignorance of mankind will end the world.
The Earth is like a caterpillar, unchanged but ready to grow. Earth's history is quite the filler,
I close my eyes. I want to see The canopy of oaks Dancing together Swaying Their mossy branches Back and forth To their natural rhythm I want to smell
We aren't trying Why aren't we TRYING We have put a man on the moon (more than one) We have invented a tiny device that is a camera a phone a music player and so much more
The ocean sprays my face; it enchants me. A sea of icy blue, it haunts my mind. It is the giver of life. It will be, what it will be. What a treasure to find. The forest is mighty with branches strong,
I dream in Green I dream in shades of emerald and jade I dream in trees In plants, in mountains And sea
What do you want to be when you grow up? When we are young We don’t think much of the answer It is too far away-
I stretch my span of wing, in the air once again My senses are heightened, carefully I listen; Silence. I fly over forest, why is the green so thin?
Some say she was born millions ago, Others say hundreds. She's here now. We treat her like we're teens, We don't clean our room. We kill her children, Lo matamos cuando quiere cariño.
Why change the Outer You can improve your Inner Find Beauty in Everything Sharp eyes and Wet nose Animals-Innocence They, the Ideal Beauty Beauty is Within
We survive in a world of consumption No compassion for the surrounding How can we agree that we even live
Drought but still drowning Forest fires and broken levees Must be summertime
A child of the spring, just like me, we grew together. With each passing year, 1, 2, 3, I came to know you. On every birthday I could see how we had changed, and I loved how
Never again will we see another day, Since we all have to play the game, To near waters filled with oil, What has become of us when we all dry and boil? Never again will we live to breathe,
So I live in beautiful, sunny Honolulu, Hawaii Pristine beaches and year-round summer weather Right? True For the most part. I walk to school every morning, 10 AM
I dream of a world where children grow Where parents teach, where parents know Where the earth doesn't hang on by a thread Where I don't have to sit and shake my head If you would only listen to their pleads
My escape, my comfort, the beautiful blue sea. When I was young, I came to you constantly. We were the best of friends when the sun shined brighter. You kept me cool from all the extreme heat.
So much beauty everywhere It is winter melting into spring The cars, bikes, and trains Make music outside my city window It is gray now Fluctuating between waves of warmth And bitter, biting cold
If trees could speak, they’d scream. Their brethren die for the business man And with them, everything. The world is slowly turning From green to gray -- From leaves to metal,
clickclickclickclick goes the key board as i sip my morning tea. Spiling, gushing ,spewng my deepest trauma and heatache. My therapy, your guilty pleasure. The best job, if you ask me, is that of a writer.

If I were Almighty, A Universal Clockmaker, A Divine Puppet Master, Pulling the stings of the world behind the scenes,
Through the trees I see the world changing, the slash-and-burn rhythm of the falling grass and the burning weeds. Through the window I see the world changing,
Today and Tomorrow Not the same now Its like two sides of a coin Heaven and Hell i supposeToday's ride homeTomorrow's pollution stormYet no one seems to botherunless its the order
We waste time We taste smoke outside We don’t care We don’t share We are so focused on our miniscule lives That we don’t stop to admire the scene around us There are miracles in this world
there were pretty daises but the lights are all gone the sun’s on vacation the stars have seen a galaxy far more beautiful than ours they’ve gone on a journey the light bulbs have burst
Plastic waste collects Landfill, a deluge of trash Air thick with our faults It is quite simple Recycle to fix our mess Give the Earth a hug.
I once was A girl caged in lonliness; living nightmare The devil on my back Crawled in my head
Living things, All around, In the beginning, There were many that basked underneath a clear sky, But the present holds something different, The sky isn't as blue as it was once before.
I've gotten so used to the rain that I hardly feel it anymore It's liek a friend giving sweet, sweet caresses Letting me know everything is all right The cobble stone sidewalks that trip me on my walk remind me
Wrapped in a blanket I still shiver, And my hands freeze as I type in the snowy bright light, My head against the window pane. I wonder what it feels like to feel anything But paralyzing frustration.
People dedicating themselves wholly to an ideal Accepting a way of life that is almost surreal Submitting their transient needs for something greater Solving problems on coffee, feeling like a martyr
Where is the love in this world so cold? Has compassion died off with those who are old? Has the ghost of the heart flown away?
There is a noble King who walks these grounds; he brings peace and serenity.
Softly, the leaves whisper, As they move aside to let the wind pass. Obligingly the water parts, To allow a magnificent swan to dive into the deep. Meanwhile, a tiny frog hops across the leaves.
Bridges tumble before our eyesOur foundation giving wayAnd all that we cherishedIt’s been falling apart for a while
Bridges tumble before our eyesOur foundation giving wayAnd all that we cherishedIt’s been falling apart for a while
The fabric, so obviously visible. We, oblivious to its vital importance, to sustain civilization, are ignoring the fabric of information. The institutions gather us, learning to weave, stitch, and sow:
My forest, my home, Where the dead leaves fall.
I wan't to subside in a place where there is an abundance of beauteous wildlife.
The sweet sound of birds singing through the leaves the wind innocently plays tag around the trees. The soothing sound as water travels downstream, or silently rests clear and serene.
We preach peace, yet declare war. We want to end world hunger, yet we toss food on the daily. We want to attain the best education, yet we are charged more than we can afford.
Hugged fingers for safety protect me
Oh beautiful Mother, with limbs branched outward, rustling the voice of your brother the wind.
I feel the sun's warm rays kissing my skinThe soft breeze caressing meColors swirl and dance aboutSoft yellows blend with deep greensOcean blue becomes soft jasmine

Education is the way to go They say the more we learn the more we earn Go to school get good grades and one day it will pay. Read them books and write them essays Answer the questions and pass the exams.
I find myself sitting on the steep dirt bank of Deer Creek in Maryland. I am located within the Susquehanna State Park. This creek empties into the Chesapeake Bay. This is where I grew up.
Weary Earth, how you suffer:
I'm crying in my crib and I reach to feel your warmth that radiates the most when I need it. Mom Come pick me up.
Reduce; Because, let's face it, we've gotten all too big. The Earth is huge but we make a difference, we're making her sick. Reuse; Because sometimes our trash isn't trash,
Fluorescence Censorship vacation from conscience Forgettable destruction we live infinitely No essence on an island of plastic Living through dead matter searching for enchantment Love is fleeting, we buy more
Infantry of a corner clique's imagery Imitates actual industry. Instead it’s often in-the-street, Marketing products with a PRE- Caution, 'cause cops will cripple thee Business. They call it criminally
The pain begins to kick in. The never ending pounding, The drums beat inside my head. Trembling, the room spins, Sipping the vodka in my glass, I'm drowning. My liver screams
They say global warming is a hoaxI say... "thats insanely wack"I am sitting here, trying to convince you allTrying to get you join my one man wolfpack
The aquatic garden, when seen from space, is vast, mystical, and blue It has many unique, sea creatures living in it too Some burrow, some float, some dart from side to side
I hate the crowd, the wrong crowd That keeps me in, I'm drowning now. And there's no hope No lovely hope To keep me safe, to keep me sound. I fall too easy, and I can't swim
Dont be mad when winters are warmer Remember that bottle you tossed out the window Dont be mad when Florida's no longer there Remember the gas you burned going last year Dont be mad when its always flooding
Don't you realize what you're doing? This pot of disaster you're brewing? We make scientific advances with new toxins and decided to proceed commercial use without caution.
The trees see it all. They live life long. And the leaves fall. A little boy will crawl.
Cans in plastic bags Bags in scrapheap This planet sags Sags from weeping We made the earth a garbage can Don't let it become a wasteland
Look outside. Do you see it? The Crumbling World. The air turning wiked, scheming to suffocate our lungs. Bodies of water regurgitating our filth. The Crumbling World.
The wildlife is gone, there is no sound/ The Planet is dying, polution in the ground/ No one seems to care/ What will they think, when there is no air/ No oxygen to breath/ Garbage contaminating the sea/
I am confronted by all their faces. The faces that say please love me In place of my owner who is an absentee. So, here I am, giving out warm embraces. I wish my work was enough,
I'd like to take a second, Only a second out of your day. Please, listen. What do you say? Rushing, running, racing. Always in a hurry, almost like a chase. Not caring about others, or taking in the Earthly surroundings in your face.
I divide from my roots with the pierce of a razor. Cleaving a meat fringe, wings endless, pine needles rolling off bark skin, detaches my figure from nature.
The lion runs over the sun-bathed plains, Into the mountains where it rains. No longer a lion, but a goat, It treks up high, and then shakes its coat. Fur turns into feathers; it is now an eagle in the sky.
Birds harmonize in nearby trees; A helicopter flies overhead, beating the air with its wings; A motor works to keep the humans inside cool, While humans driving cars burn deadly fuel;
Can one change the 6,999,999,999?No. But they can change a few.And those few can change multitudes.Through those multitudes the world can hear.They can hear the simple dream of a small voice.The simple dream filled with strong passions. They can
someone punctured the atmosphere’s lung you know what came out? the stench of scorched hot dogs
In a place for me to call my own A stationary mass moves through. Quickly rotating without knowledge; I stay still.
Fairy World By Emma Doyon A fairy, Caught in between our world, and hers She dance’s between life and death Surrendering herself to all possibilities
Born in her nurturing arms Cradle to death and back again, She held out her helping hands As a sanctuary for all her children,
A butterfly Drifting and floating. Knowing, it only lives for a month. It drifts flower to flower, landing on every one. Soaking them in. Spreading their genetics, so they make more flowers.
I walk into the class, Room nine and all I see are boys behinds I wish they would take school more serious cause what they're doing is delerious
"I Sting as hard as a Bumblebee" "But i'm gracefull as a Dove" "You can not defeat me!" "No sir-we I might be just a cub" "With all my might i put up such a fight!" "You can't defeat me"
You live, you die, you laugh, you cry That is how life goes, but i wonder why Some say it is like a roller coaster It takes you to your highs and lows Others say it is like a journey
Soft, fluffy, white. / I cannot reach. / One day I might. / Anything, everything, all. / They're what you wish. / They let you fall into the soft blankets of peace. / Breathe, smile, let go. / Dare to imagine. / They'll put on a show.
Golden air of mountain,The Trees glow with the sunset light,They sing their own goodnights. Though not a last goodbye,From stream to mountain they sign on high,In air, their children fly. And the moon’s sweet whiteness,Will struggle with the sunse
Water you are life. You flow through Earth's veins, Transport us to the vast unknown, Whiten the cold, frozen ground and Darken the sky and let out a cry. Earth, prisoner on watery shores.
Concrete wasn’t always made so harsh and solid In fact it was mostly straw When I walk without my shoes on It rubs my poor feet raw
Us humans; our mind: so strong, so alive, Usurper of Nature, the law, to survive. A hundred more years or a hundred more lives, But what does it matter if humans still thrive?
Fault of Destiny As a female it is destine to endure the pain of feminism. The curiosity of Eve will forever haunt the innocent. A normal female
the Girl with the Red Hair, the scowled lips the Pretentious curl,The sun's grace, but as fierce as snake venom.Tongue made of butterfly wings and unspoken dreams. I watch from afar,
What is that tiny speck of dirtIn the distance?That tiny, microscopic,Beautiful speck of dirt
I watch the world with saddened eyesWhat mother nature must think of usThis once beautiful blue planetNow covered in trash and dust
To clutch at her fingers, would do little to hold A heart irreparably scorned, a bitter black cold A deaf ear, a blind eye, she turns to screaming faces Facing what they have done, Mother screams a bloody ode oh
I know how much she holds In the palm of her green hand Why they seem to spite her She will never understand Her tired eyes watch as they scratch at her knees More is what they want
The wind in the willow the will o' the wisp A treehouse down where I used to live Up in the willow the willow that weeps Outside the orchard my maple held me
Waiting outside, day in day out, from the morning's beginning, till past the ninth inning. Crowded before work, people listen, read, write and wait... Persistent patience while the rain's delaying.
Listen to this story Of a land forward in time, Where a polar bear lives The last of his kind. He would wonder To and fro, And think what if Humans didn’t let global warming grow?
Up on the polar ice, A family looms. Their beautiful snowy coats Glistening In the small sunlight left. Soon the icy winter Will pull through. The cubs snuggle
How should one describe the world? Is it a dandy place with clouds and swirls? Perhaps that's what children would say. But adults know there's bills to pay. We all say we should go green.
The power of nature arose, spreading through the earth, Surrounded closely by blades of grass. The mammals froze ready to protect. Flowing to the brick hard road. Bearing moss green,
I can’t figure this out. Do we change throughout life? Or one person the day we were born, And the same when we depart? Take colors. The day you were born You were red.
Slowly, quietly she encroaches on the humming of life Inconspicuously she blankets miles upon miles of all types of land with simply a paintbrush in her hand She cannot be stopped
Many a sparrow sounds the alarm for a new dawn Many an eye opens, then close in irritation Refusing to appreciate the song of the morning Many a flower blooms; the evaporating dew Creates an aroma; a natural perfume
For hundreds of years blacks have died by whips and chains Its' 2013 and blacks are still dying over whips and chains. Our heroes fought to make a change So why should'nt the new generation do the same
Growing older, growing taller,Watching all the people prosper.At that point I saw that cityFlourish under browning branches.
Her being is in the air we breathe in. She is in the cerulean oceans. She is everything that is and has been. Her calm sunsets stir up deep emotions. Her mountains soar up to heavenly heights,
I write for the world. Its skies of blue stretching uniqueness across the planet Revealing its luster and foliage for all the universe to see
Looking for a warning sign Amidst Earth’s complex design Light little plastic bags Jellyfish to the turtles with our tags Our pistons out on an ego trip Guzzling so fast, we need an IV drip
We watched As timid little cities Filled their bellies Full of brown and coal black The air, a muddled mess The bees, on verge of collapse The fish, caught in the wires we spun…
Earth, she withstands our torment She knows all, yet she keeps all She lives and breathes with us She moves alongside us She is the breath of life And the harbinger of death Mother Earth is bleeding
This I saw on a February day: Fluttering of wings in the tears of the sky, Slumped arms of a cheerless Camphor tree,
There comes a time when we all hold a responsibility For what the world is and what it could be But we often get trapped in our own reality Concerned only with the well-being of our families
The shop doors open And the signs are turned, Every person, ready to strike a deal. Market street, dressed in wares of others' vision's Flowers, dresses, hats, grocers goods.
The buzzing sounds of machines overwhelm our power of sound, mainstream rhythm is concealed. Birds that beautifully chirp, chirp, chirp
Scowling eyes filled with growing tears, which bleed and shed their seething fears. A land once ruled by natural laws, soon crumbled under political claws. These eyes, they see what is now disowned,
Before words, Poetry was what I saw, Outside my window. Swallows swooping from, Spittle-caked nests. Bobcats bounding among,
Look! right there , yes..everywhere. INJUSTICE , i cry INJUSTICE ! tears, it's not fair we are poor , wheres our hope? the world is crumbling everything is dying. What happened to our beautiful trees?
Look outside. What do you see? Have you ever realized how special every componet of this earth really is? I bet you haven't. Is the grass a lovely spring green? Or is it brownish like a decaying log?
Where will we be When teh Skys turn black and everything we see turns to attack. There is no turning back. The waters will rise as the lands fall. Birds cease to fly.
Started out small, I did. Now i have grown Arms Into the sky Feet Into the ground From Mother, we came; Takes care of us, she does Small furry things
A meager rift in the atmosphere One, maybe two degrees You sense its mood is changing Unsettling
And as I looked up at the sky I asked to the heavens, "why were we given the earth, if you knew we were going to destroy it?" A bird flew The stars twinkled, the planets moved,
I love the way the grass dances as the wind blows, The way the trees sway, And the howl of the wind. The sky is baby blue with fluffy, scattered white clouds. A chill creeps up my spine.
Jump, splash, plop. A calm peaceful pond, Little frogs swimming around, Exploring the wondrous beauty.
He covered his mouth to hush the panting breaths he took. Leaning his bare back against the shed, he re-formed his hand and placed a finger to his lips, asking a nearby rooster not to give away his position.
The many drops of rain Each splash forms a tiny circle Call that the spiral of human livelihood It expands so vastly with extreme celerity It's as if it expanded to the point
Gas prices are too high College tuition isn’t even affordable Layoffs and cut backs are expected and even looked forward to What has the world come to?

Walking in the woods and looking down On the ground and around And finding remnants of the past And wondering what happened to those who used to call this place home.
People are animals. We, once domesticated creatures, now are on a destructive regressive path. We are ending our own world. We are cracking our mother's heart with the pollution of our industries.

Standing still, eyes planted on the framed piece before me. Canary yellow, alive like a dandelion takes me back to the two room house on Spaghetti Hill. Red, as deep as blood that flows through our veins,
Trees fall and the wind blows Dead cigarettes fall as the smoke blows Alienated trash with nowhere to go The world wanders with nowhere go
On the beat, on the beat The only sound's the pounding feet Of people jumping on the stage, Dancing the story of our age, Of all the humans in their cage The dancers free their pounding rage.
The world's an ignorant factory, the rich bought the winning hand The middle class distraught, the poor blamed more than not The government explaining that it is simply supply and demand
Gazing into the bowels of the beast known as Boomtown I watch as its victims succumb to the temptations The depravations The unending depreciation Of small-town America All sparked by a foul-smelling black fuel.
Snow in April, May, and June Plus heat that rises past July There are way too many funky colors filling the sky. Smoke and smog, Gas and ash. People are destroying our world
The work of the hands was obsolete they say, Trying to cure the weed-ridden turf, But they forgot about my father today, His knees crack with effort in the dirt, Grass heads tickle against forgiving sun-rays.

Somehow, she holds a delicate balance in the air. Not graceful— she tips as if filled with sloshing, sweet water— but she stays above the dirt until she's found her niche
Dust drifts down, and for a moment, it resembles the dance of white snow. Caused by a large boom, the dust falls and crashes into the top of houses, trees, and people. Some dust lingers in the air and shrouds everything in sight.
She gives me shelter and food And cares for the ones I love Everything I have is from her So I dump cyanide in her well Rip shingles off her roof Trample her garden Why? Because I can
The Pieces are taken from the earth and manipulated into something unnatural The synthetic product drinks a Piece of the earth; the earth’s poison.
In the summer, I dreamt of Styrofoam cups raining in my sleep. I’d wake under my sheets, buried under the humidity. Nervously, I would speak: I am still here I would say in the dark No one ever answered,
Decimated by mother nature's lack of repentance, a pallid environment ensures, men wizened to the bone- their loved ones calling for their souls and becoming seemingly ethereal
We find beauty in things untouched The remaining virginity of nature mesmerizes But in an attempt to grasp it It is tortured by the hands of the ignorant The greedy, the unsatisfied A child-like mind
I fall for you like shooting stars As you become my night sky I rise for you like the golden sun For you are the horizon in which I rise I fly free Because you are everything around me
The rootless trees are clustered together They search for everything, except the roots they need to survive. The windswept trees cannot stand long without each other. They are blown around by the winds.
The trees, hid her from everyone around The water, flowed beneath her tiny feet For nothing more beautiful could astound Like the pleasant river beyond the street,
“No. No. No. We are not like the other cells We are sophisticated and superior, living in houses and hotels No drinking via osmosis, but pull water from wells And we are called to worship God by the church bells”
In this world of thorns and roses Deception creates reality's balance Here lies a cup stemmed from overflowing greed Rather cage the bird than watch it fly.
Oh ruined labyrinth, your stone walls do evict our Grass. The days of labor and loathing seep into the roots of life! The Sky, she cries with her soul tainted from the waste of men,
Pearls of drops are ours to count As graceful as they fall, So as to, later, try to mount The throne of pride o'er all.
Tall, towering, majestic, grand. Clear, rushing, vibrant, pure. Alive, frolicking, happy, free. This is the way. This is the way the trees were. This is the way the water was. This is the way the animals were.
I remember the gently blowing wind in my youth that shook the trees. I remember the soft, gentle flower petals fall from the trees and land in my palm. The passing street cars zooming right on by.
Blue skies reside in photographs, predating sprawled luxury - untainted tips of childish thought with straight priorities.
I know a place where all is still It's by a lake behind a hill And though to find, it's quite a trek It's a lighthouse when you're about to wreck
Hey, hey, hey little flower Pink with joy warmer than candle sticks Arrayed with so much splendor Ah, yes; I see the things God can give You're always on my way out How someone can be allergic to you deceives me
As she rests her warm head on the reserved meadow I wait. As she descends I look ahead, waiting for you, Your imperfections, your craters that comfort me so tightly, As she descends I wait.
Skies stricken with the zephyrs of despair, Sun gleaming on gears of salvation, Nature may have something to spare; Then there would be glorified escalation.
Global warming is not real. People lie when they say that The North and South poles are melting, Arctic animals are dying, The weather is changing, We are in danger. Nobody knows the truth.
Look around Tell me what you see It’s easy when it’s staring back at me May be foreign to the newest eyes Always pure behind the tallest disguise Let no fancy cloud your doubt It’s there, it’s there, shout
Nonchalantly, I watch mother earth’s face erode as her acid tears stream down her face she silently wonders what ever happened to this place this earth we call our home is nothing but waste upon buildings of chrome
Here it comes, the summer breeze, over the mountains and through the trees, Down in the valley, birds take wing, ascending slowly, and begin to sing.
I hike on concrete toward concrete sky My oppressors are as easy as nectar from the mouths of flowers named in Latin In the clouds I see insincere rabbits and jagged dragons
At break of day, the sun slices through purple darkness of night illuminating sincere faces of mountain’s cliffs. Rainbows shimmer like mother of pearl through mist hanging on
The moon came with a whisper. Not until it rose high above did he realize the reason he couldn't rightly see his feet was because it had become night time.
The tall prairie grass sways, almost as if it’s dancing, in the breeze. The same light breathe of air blows over your skin, wrapping you in its embrace. The bright, shinning sun watches over you in its bed of pure blue.
The Mother Earth that once throbbed with life Is falling into the abyss of death. It is the human and animal strife Which contracts and compresses nature's breath.
When will we learn? When will we cry? We’re letting our planet burn, We’re letting it die. Nature’s balance has been upset, Who’s to blame? Who carries the regret, For setting our world aflame?
I feel lost Like a tree in a city 10 feet from my closest friend But only able to say she’s pretty And I can see the people walking by
Vast areas flocked with Soldiers of Green. Great pools caked with Kings of Blue. Endless gates accentuated with Givers of Clear. Hold your color! Hold you bearings! Hold that which created you!
It is the season of sleeping late while dreaming of red-orange trees shuddering in the evening breeze. These are the short days when the thirst for warmth suborns desire and Eros kisses summer love goodnight.
Where leaves are green and trees are tall, Where water roars and eagles call, Where night will come and silence fall, There I wish to be. A place where deer and wolf run free,
The trees webbed together in a mesh of branches and unfallen sticks A beautiful collage of things as spider web of chaos in natural canopy but squirrels and chainsaws the masters
A Saguaro was killed in the street today, I wept as each car ran it over Poor thing it didn’t get to see a hundred A flower never bloomed on its green spiked scalp.
Always in constant wonder of everything But especially The sun, the sun, the sun Bright, warm, fantastic, beautiful Few words can describe the feeling it gives me It fills my heart, my mind, my body
The sun in the day, the moon at night, a sky littered with stars and clouds they hide behind. The trees, so tall, with leaves on their branches, which change their color and fall as summer passes.
Tracing envious combinations up dripping castles, magnified to become the object of shifting poles. Wind grazing lazy whitecaps among the visions, memories, smooth deep red river stones.
Child, so humble, so innocent Sun-kissed by golden streaks of warmth, Ray's gift of beauty to us. Hush, listen, for on summer days Like these, you can hear the wind Whispering secrets, tales of creation.
There is a sun in the sky Or sometimes the moon Either way I’m not looking At that There is a river It flows to the house That sits on a hill That flowers surround But I’m not looking
