Seasons of Life and Death

Under the care of sun and rain
My leaves have unfurled
My buds have burst forth
My own will has been done
This was my beginning
Through the seasons
Spring brought me to life
Summer grew me to new heights
The fall must come sometime
The frost will encase my barbs
And I will return to meditation
Waiting patiently for my rebirth
For your light to peek through clouds
Your moon to hold me within night
When spring returns...
I will dance in the wind
A never ending flower

Apocalypse


The whale sings
and I weep,
The world groans 
and I ache,
The wind gusts
and I bend,

The surf sighs
and I rage,
The babe cries
and I mourn,

The mountains shift
and I flinch,
The earth dies 
and I wear black.

Trisha Sugarek, 2011

Natural, tranquil peace

Flowers of snow float from high, 
Breaking that summer heat drought.
Each floral flake falling from a beautiful glory,
Enveloping the ground all about

The slopes, peaks and troughs, the valleys of green, 
Covered with love from the sky,
Leaving animals, birds and trees in a placid pure peace, 
And hidden by a clear dust of why

In this beautiful now, nature hears with an ear, 
A sensitive quiet ear to restore,
All that’s been in every season leading till now, 
All that’s been there before

This beautiful clean purge of the life in the hills, 
The natural ebb with a flow,
Purifies all that nature can be, 
Perfecting itself with some snow.

Last Kiss


Our mouths and our souls mix as we become one, Love second to none ... The moon, that just moments before bathed our night - Now swallowed by light ... Huge clouds, like fresh mushrooms, bloom pink in the skies, Soft-sparkling your eyes ... Night, turned to day, with bright colors and aura ... Such dazzling horror ... Our mouths and our souls mix as we become one, We burn like the sun ... Our lives and world ... done. ~ 1st Place ~ in the "Half-Eleven" Poetry Contest, Nina Parmenter, Judge & Sponsor. ~ 2nd Place ~ in the "The Last ..." Poetry Contest, Silent One, Judge & Sponsor.

The grass grows long

A scent of panic in the air
   The taste of gunfire everywhere
The ground is littered with despair
   Heroes' nightmares lit by flares

Tanks burning in the mud
   Fallen troops oozing blood
Cries and shouts split the skies
   Forlorn pleas to stay good-byes

Years pass, the grass grows long
   Battles fade to maudlin songs
Earth returns to timeless glory
   Stilling whispers of all things gory

Hudhud

Nature and Nature fight,
To switch off the light.
And to grab the right, 
that loosens us at night. 

People say it's not good, 
since it grabs our food.
For so it should, 
Be called Hudhud.

A day for destructing, 
a decade for reconstructing. 
With such power of its Incoming,
And an obstacle for Outgoing. 

Bye bye Hudhud,
Never again say you could.

The Face of Death

Beheld thee ever the face of Death?
Felt thee the cold haunting breathe?
Hasth thee looked through the hollow eyes
And shivered Upon hearing the astral cries?

Take but a moment, just a moment
And close thy eyes and reflect.
The almighty by his hand spinned Earth
And therein obliviously placed Death.

Now, beheld thee ever  the face of Death?
Felt thee the cold haunting breathe
When thee gape through the misty mirror
At thy skeleton's dramatic error?

Hasth thee watched the lips hitch
And heard the Medusan screech?
Hasth thee looked through the hollow eyes
And seen with fright thy dreadful face?

Yellow Moon

She watched as the earth fell asleep

Waited for the yellow moon

soft kisses of unfaithful wind..

Images..Images on her head

Nostalgic memory of a forgotten love

Flashes of things she tried to forget..

Her eyes caught the reflection of the moon

locked inside the rain on her cheek..

She was standing alone..

Her grieving heart sought

solace from the moon

She petitioned the stars

Where is he this very night?

Cruel..oh so cruel..

Beneath the silence of the sky

she bowed her head and cried..

My Time Has Come

My Time Has Come

My time is over here in this body
I am being called home as my work is done here
I hear my Lords voice calling me home
Although I know I will miss this old world 
With all that I have seen and done
All the People I have met and talked to
My body can go on no more for it has reached it’s time

In its final soar 
Finds the limb it learned to fly 
Lands, to fly no more

Why all this Destructions

Why all this Destructions? – Zamreen Zarook

God created this whole universe for the mankind,
He gave everything lavishly, thinking that we might be kind,
Even though people are able, they seems to be blind,
Whereas people failed to mind.

The sky which was created for the man started to scream and cry,
Since good morals and ethics were decry,
The fire started to do the mimicry,
As the water lands cannot bear, it came to man with a battle cry.

Land couldn't hold and it started to gorge,
Fresh air merged with chemicals and started to urge,
Whatever created for the man have started to over charged,
Stop evil and let the merits be enlarged.

Salt of the Earth

Rain fill this grave
soften bones that have been so brave;
your heart will hear my chord so simple
bloom an echo sweet and gentle;
to grow as life between the grass
guiding the sun and moon to pass;
listen for my voice is soft and light
a lingering nocturne in the night.

End of Life

End of life 
When will it be? 
What is life? 
Who can tell me? 
Surely the church would know 
In its high and mighty stature 
Towering above the city in splendor 
Sharing its love for those in need 
Keeping its knowledge from those who read 
Forgetting the poor if need be 
Remembering the rich for its own greed 
Who can explain the unending need of man for God? 
Spirit will soar above the spires of men 
Destined for who knows where or when 
Can man remain upon the Earth 
when fire and flood will someday come 
We are but seconds in the days of life 
Destined to die in mortal strife 
God in his wisdom high above 
Looks down on us with his perfect love

An Early Wind

You will go from earth to sky for this sweet reunion.
Lie softly Precious Traveler, suffer not. 

Sleep...

Blue Mother Moon shall open an early wind 
and gently blow you home.

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

IN THE FIRED FURNACE OF CALI

     IN THE FIRED FURNACE OF CALI
     (APROPOS THE ANNUAL RUNNING OF FIRE AND MUD)

Roaring radiant raging waves of heat,
the charging beast, glowing red hot with anger,
devours all within its path; left over sable statutes
send streams of spiraling smoke sketching
grayish designs upon the hazy blue canvas above.   

Weary eyes reflect the yellow-orange-red glow
that only the rage of a Dante-like hell could bring.
The wretched earth once again lay hopelessly
on the remnant of her charred bed: awaiting
her steaming tears to wash away the ashes.

In the meanwhile mourners collect scorched
memories: telltale recollections of sacrifices
nature left upon her Vulcan altar.

THEY STRUGGLED IN PANIC

From age as young as five
they were sent down the mine.
The darkness struck terror
but they dare not complain.

In the dust, grit and wet
of that black evil place
they grub around in filth
to work at the coalface.

If a new seam was cut 
the air became toxic.
They coughed and they choked
and struggled in panic.

When the coalface collapsed,
alive they were buried.
Some were never dug out
but just left there as dead.

When a child died like that,
parents offered some pence,
which the coalmine owner 
thought was fair recompense.

In that meanest mine-shaft,
with each child a cheap slave
there were many young deaths
and the pit was their grave.

THE SON FALLS FROM SKY

Deception lingers.
The Lord counts on his fingers.
One two three four five. 

Our sins pile up high.
Brim stones unleashes from sky.
The bible explains why .

Humans mystified. 
Humans contemplate their sins. 
Down crumbling mountains. 

Blood sheds blood sheds wild.
Genesis revelations.
brute termination.

Annihilation.
End of all generations .
lo lo damnation.

Tornadoes destroys.
A vast grim darkness deployed.
One two three the end.

The son falls on earth.
Lo the earth burns the earth ends.
One two three the end.



Definition of lo:look! see!

A Rose

A rose for her grave.
Isn't that what she heard them say?
Soft and chaste, love gets sweeter.

Seven till midnight it read.
Can't you see the shadows bite? 
Can't you see the light pouring in?

Under blue windows just beyond the stars.
Can't I just lie here for a little while?
Won't you lay here with me till morning light?
Only then I'll have my independence from you.

An Aquarian Exposition

Take the pill
on the hill
and don't be shrill
when you see the rainbow
when you are low.
Just go with the flow
and eat the purple snow.
Chase the rabbits 
through the green field
but use my shield 
to end all of your habits.
