In the silent noon

the wind rustles through its leaves

chattering with Earth.

blossoms blooming in the Spring;

its beauty unmatched.

Two leaves dancing through

the night waltzing their endless

dance of the ages.

The Hunt

Bluebird, bluebird, blue

diving and curling your wings

the game is your prey.

Snow

Fluffy, white, and pure;

snow represents the wholeness

of being reborn.

Drifting through the mind

in and out of consciousness,

you float with the clouds.

Rubble and sticks on the ground,

my house left unphased.

Giant balls of gas

burning millions of miles in

the endless Space Void.

washed pure in silk white.

is paved with rocks and glass shards,

at end is true bliss.
