Speak trees, speak!
Let your truths be known!
Oh, if it could, wood would speak
And let wisdom be shown
Yet they are seemingly silent
But oh the stories they’d tell
The events they’ve witnessed
Here's to you:
the seasoned sailor
of these tempestuous words
the autumnal expert leaf turner
secret enjoyer of craft pumpkin-spiced beverages
the jaded cliche artist
It is a perfect day outside.
The breeze brushes the acorns
and the smell of charcoal reminds me
it's the weekend.
The steps I take are light,
the sun I feel consists of the right ingredients
Why do we wait,
Until it’s too late,
Before we try to make a change?
We’re too ignorant or arrogant,
To realise our initial mistakes,
Or maybe we have this,
it rains more often
now that summer ends
it is a salty rain that comes
from the sea
when the wind blows
and the wind blows colder now
there is a sad abundance
for nature knows that she
Shattered, rock teeth
Tear through deep, green gums,
Hard and high, Against a distressed sky,
Fat with unshed rain
A sharp silhouette of age,
Anger and violence,
Distant echoes of the pain
The heat came
as it always did
tanning the fields a gorgeous gold
ripening avocados and tomatoes.
The heat came
and drew the Sunset residents out
into the warmer bays and lakes
where the marine layer ...
Leaves circle high
Flutter like wings In tormented winds, Unsure of direction—
Them and I,
In Fall's silence.
To go one way
And not the other,
A question of emotion Or absolute direction? Vo...
You stole my heart with a single white rose;
Wanting, believing, while feeling the lies;
Promises made that could never be kept;
Hidden in secret, my heart slowly dies.
The white rose, eternal, undyin...
I have a light,
that draws others in with its warmth,
I am radiant and wired,
I don’t grow weary,
I dare not tire.
I am Fire.
Even in the darkest phases when my light appears faint,
I know I am desire...
A bird with clipped wings, she suffocates while placating the nest. She wants to snatch a fish tale and drop it into a pool of quicksand. That won’t bring her wings back but it will lessen an underdev...
The wind howls
And the lighthouse bells chime louder.
I can see the peaking crimson red roofing standing tall in the horizon.
The warm reddish orange sun glowing wild with rage behind it.
The ocean ti...
A chance meeting, Our eyes meeting, And instant love.
And in the supermarket,
I talked of You.
Our big shop was filled by me
Analysing Your features
Through aisles of milk, bread, cakes, pizzas,
I love the ripples in the water. You used to talk to me through them. Show me how steady and constant and beautiful your love is. And when the waters are still, so is my heart. How the life in the wat...
The plains roll like the ocean here. Green, tan, brown in undulating patterns stretching farther than the horizon. Cattle dot black specs across public land; an occasional camel, elk, llama. A rancher...
Do you remember
The moment you looked at me,
And I shivered with pleasure? A petrified rabbit, I stared up at you, A grey wolf with excited eyes. You gazed at my throat, Ready to rip and tear my skin,...
The sun paints the sky as it nods,
out of sight, into the sea and
the moon rises, out of sight,
so high above,
Emerging only with the dark.
Slowly the moon pushes
through the twilight, climbing
Lay With Nature
Late in the fall upon entering the forest
I lay to rest beneath a redwood
Majestic stature serene solitude in natures temple
Uplifted celestial heights angels balance upon their canopy...
