analogy, birth, creation, devotion, earth, flower, nature,
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
analogy, animal, autumn, bird, death, earth, emotions,
In its final soar
Finds the limb it learned to fly
Lands, to fly no more
death, earth, world,
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.

beauty, death, earth, holocaust, true love, war, world,
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.

beauty, death, earth, nature, paradise, snow,
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.
angel, earth, funeral, god, humanity, international, military,
God, in the gloaming, splits the horizon with lightning,
assembly of angels of every nation and tongue ~
lifting coffins of great numbers of war dead,
military, and civilian men, women, children,
over dusky rolling fields of scarlet poppies,
nations united in sorrows,
in lamentation of humankind,
then, a collective hush,
as nightjars sing the dirge of the universe.
7th grade, art, death, earth, faith, funny love, sick,
"Its corona time" they said
I really hope I don't wind up dead
Many people have such as Tom Hanks
He's been tested. It wasn't a prank
Stores are running out of Purell and toilet paper
COVID-19 is like a game and we are all desperate players
Wash your hands and say a prayer
Becasue coronavirus is everywhere
Chantelle Anne Cooke
death, earth, garden,
Silver scythe shimmers
Ebony fog embraces bones
Earth gleams as gardens
His skeleton shines
Bursting into blinding vines
Souls breathe through poets
Words wave in wishes
Alive we scribe our hauntings
Bells of poetry

death, earth, soldier, war,
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
depression, earth, emotions, green, grief, nature,
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.

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..
death, depression, earth, men,
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?

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

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.
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
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
death, earth, eulogy, heaven, journey, moon, sky,
You will go from earth to sky for this sweet reunion.
Lie softly Precious Traveler, suffer not.
Blue Mother Moon shall open an early wind
and gently blow you home.

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
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.
children, death, earth, england, evil, history, hurt, parents, sad, scary,
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.
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.

Elliott Bowe THe DrUnKeN POeT
death, life, earth,
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 contemplate their sins.
Down crumbling mountains.
Blood sheds blood sheds wild.
End of all generations .
lo lo damnation.
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!

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.

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.

I watched the shadow
Trying to make sense of time!
