Polluted
Back in wild. Is it worth my time. I see the birds smile. But are they alright? Ground sing happily, And the flowers dance. But are they really safe. Or do humans take their chance? They're all just j...

April Showers
Somethings fresh. Somethings new. Something bloomed. But nothing can replace you. You were the constant sun in winter, now you're spring. Can't you here the bees sing? They sing for your honeycomb hea...

Siren and the Sea
Oblivious to limits or prisons I wave to carry you to foreign places I crash to push you past your limits I pull you in to test your willingness to be taken away by my levels that rise when I look in ...

Cold White Sand
Extra pages on extra snow days The music is rocking me through the day Away from and closer to me in belief I am the prey Today it said to search for new ways to expand myself So to the beat on repeat...

Arise, Morning Bird
Arise, morning bird; how your call gently nudges me from the hypnosis of utopias of which I traveled joyously. Arise, morning bird; now awakened, disturbed but grateful as the breath of life tingles m...

Delicious Scrumptious Figs
If you want to see me happy and dance a little jig just do me one small favor and bring me some tree-ripened figs there's very little flavor-wise that can even come close to what your tastebuds experi...

Toast to the Moon and Stars
Moon, oh all the things we’ve been though Remember how I used to ask the question that start with why I tried to plant something that refused to grow And all the time now there’s nothing to show I’m s...

Dear Sky
Dear sky, you who stare at us with your bright fiery eye during day and with your bright watery eye during the night, you sparkle us with your beauty and mystery, let us glare at your divine structure...

Grandmother Willow
I am seeing the leaves of this tree change from forest green to sunset orange. If I were a botanist or even an archaeologist I would understand the stages of its life. I could count its rings and stud...

The Voyager’s Spark
Down, down, down into the darkness of the ocean. Let it take you, let it, for only a moment, control you. The ocean is big beyond belief, let it swallow you, It’s bigger than the human mind can ever c...

Figuring It Out
Try and figure out a time where water doesn’t win I recommend you figure out what makes the wild woman’s soul sing I hope you figure out how you take your coffee and how you prefer your wine Maybe one day you’ll sit by the sea and contemplate how to figure out our polluted sky’s which will naturally help you figure out your polluted mind On the days where you can’t seem to figure out how you’ve made it this far and how exactly you’re going to make it any further maybe it’s as simple as figuring ...

Mama
She rests at the edge of the trees Two fawns stick close, spotted and wobbly Ears sticking up just barely Two small lives she's protecting Eyeing me warily and rightly so. Lean bodies built for runnin...
Still
I was overwhelmed by a frenzy of anxious self-destruction and a fit of the walls closing. I’d like to say that this night was an anomaly, that it is memorable because it was uncommon. But the truth is...

The Irony of Life
As I watch the sun and moon play hide and seek in the sky, I find myself laughing for no reason, 'cause nothing around me is hilarious. I've been for long locked in a house, where all I do Is speak to...

Garbage Island
You can find me on garbage island or sunbathing in Antarctica Falling asleep and forgetting where we came from Denying the dying polar bears and blue whales Producing more plastic than we can catch up...

Daydream
She often daydreamed of leaving, Abandoning her shoes at the door, Getting lost in nature's melody, Her naked feet dancing across the damp ground, Following the rhythm of the whistling wind How she wi...
