The taste spread swiftly
around the room.
They pinpoint the doom.
A little old lady
Who's big on perfume.

She prowls the night
with clenched jaw and pride,
nothing able to smite
her remorseless stride.
The ominous reflection of moon
shines forth from devouring eyes
of a nocturnal beauty spun on the loom
of the Creator's bid and sighs.
Grace moves her every limb
and she precedes an enraged scream
caused by ruins of a forest now grim
and held alive by all but one stream.
Her claws prophesy of vengeance
though her heart yearns for reconciliation.
Yet now there would be no leniency
for a soul's annihilation.
Now on journeys through lush valleys and ashes
she will embark
until all that remains after furious thrashes
will be the tigress' mark.
Flowers and green leaves
Die in hundreds every day
Shortage of coffins

death, dream, environment,
At night, a huge creature floats to the surface of the tart ocean to dream into the moonlight, which barely penetrates the sulfur clouds. She sighs, her skin made of stainless steel is luminescent in the dark, her nuclear heart continues to work, but she is empty: the last restless souls have long gone from her body. She floats out of habit: inanimate things can’t dream. What did she dream before?
blue sky verdant strip
of land on the horizon…
she doesn't recall
All About The Environment. Poetry Contest
Sponsored by: Richard Lamoureux
emotions, environment, freedom, grief, moving on,
Passing old memory lanes as the tram journeys towards home,
how in the maze of thoughts do I find some happiness?
Windows will share the tears on a rainy day.
Destroying the old worlds as we fly around the globe,
It was always raining in the new lands,
parts of self left behind in pieces in the thoughts of friends
Finding freedom in bonding with the unknown,
filling empty baskets for the occasions of nostalgia,
Realising only in the riddle of dreams where we truly belong,

Yesterday the tree died. Many men came and cut it down and laid it on the road.
They laid the body on the road.
I went and said a few kind words. The tree had always been good to me.
In fact it had been good to everyone but nobody came Ma.
They took the tree's body away, I was not sure if they will burn it away or bury it. I wished it stayed longer with us.
What happens to trees that die Ma?
(Amma, Ma are synonymous with mother)

The cause of his death
Because he chose to do meth
He started out with a line
But it was no longer fine
He started to smoke in a glass bowl
He knows hes loosing his soul
Feeling not one emotion
With the impulse of another notion
He desires to put it on a spoon
Cooking it not to quick but not to soon
He places it into the needle sticks it in him arm
Starting to cause major bodily harm
Instantly hes enjoying his high
But doesnt even get to say goodbye
Death decides its his time to go
Just a thought...
But maybe he should have said
death, environment, evil, life, nonsense, political, pollution,
I sit on my chair and travel the world
I turn off my TV

They see strengths
Not the limitations
These are people who will make you proud of yourself
They will tell you why you’re special
Trust you to the point you have to answer their expectations
They make you better than you normally are
You can be proud of yourself
They respect you
For what you’ve done
Where you’ve come from
They see what you’ve experienced something real
Respect you for your courage
They live by their rules
They do not expect you to follow theirs
They are at peace to themselves
They are not proving anything to you
They are good listeners
Sincere in their interest in you
You feel important
They are available for honest
Makes you want to share yourself

Water, gently filling a bamboo to the brim before snapping,
scared deer running in the right direction, to the hunter,
how many young ones are orphaned in this bloody hunting?

children, confusion, dedication, environment, giggle, grief, lonely,
Broken and torn from days long gone
Not from neglect or anything wrong
A family often would sit and communicate
I tried to listen, most times I could relate
I loved that family that crawled on me
Having fun playing games or watch TV
Late into the evening the girls would date
Playing love songs, kissing, feeling great
Rough housing little ones jumped too hard
Finally my legs fell off, from being jarred
They tried to make me work by patching
All those cats hopping on and scratching
Finally, I gave up the ghost and lost the fight
They took me outside and said goodnight
They bought one new; but often would say
I loved the old couch; it was good in it's day
bird, environment, grief,
Caged in shadows
the canary breathes
amidst the clutter and din
of coal miners
who toil to extract
from veins underground
with its demise
too late for those who seek
fresh air and light
as families above ground
gather and wait
under a pale sun
they feel in their veins

read me a poem today
whose lines I've heard before,
bur where and when,
I couldn't tell:
"the shortest road is the one
that you know,
the longest road is the one
that you love"
soaked in deep thoughts,
I sat there for hours and hours
my eyes shut, lips dry
waiting for further clues
until, as a sudden,
the 'longest way' part rang a bell
I got off the chair,
opened my arms wide towards the ocean
hugged and kissed the wind,
the almightiest messenger of them all,
for making me feel again
bereavement, environment, fantasy, history,
Waters so thick with codfish,
the Basques caught them in handbaskets.
A river turned red as
salmon returned from the ocean.
Tropical seas teeming with billfish
and beaches thick with turtles
inspiring tales by Hemingway and Grey.
Waters without oxygen and
jellyfish so thick, you can collect them
with handbaskets, if you have good gloves.
A red tide runs up the coast
poisoning our oysters.
The ocean's covered by plastic scum
while reefs sink as corals bleach
in an overheated acid sea.
My fantasy, that history
may someday be reality.
creation, encouraging, environment, fantasy, feelings, life, love,
I am alone on the island of death
Around the bodies of hundreds
Natural disasters happened a little earlier
My enemies, allies, relatives
Some of the most intimate
I am on mass of ruins
Loud noise...Moaning...Unbroken silent in a trice
I am just at the end
There are no tears in my eyes, no fear in chest
I am speechless
I am in the midst of so much death, destruction
Creation is alive
It's my responsibility to rotate the wheel again
SANDIP GOSWAMI, INDIA
bird, creation, death, environment, fear, hope, love,
This large dark creature fluffs its wings at me,
causing fear and shame.
However, I have done nothing wrong to it.
Yet, it snares at me in pain. I am afraid, but I call to it
and it comes close, but not near for fear. Why is this creature afraid,
or is it just the Human trade.
I call, it comes, I show by my outstretched hands, then gently
touches my hands and pecks. Then, flies away a greeting we
have made known, no more to be afraid.
The Raven twice removed to come back another day.

death, environment, holocaust, home, horror, war, world,
being in this tin womb, dark and safe,
that's the thing; inside the dark corners
and air-lock doors, it's a floating life
toothpaste and pureed stew float by;
still, here's not to dwell on the minutiae
and other small things
and the silent solar-wind powers on,
while below, the earth, the sea, the clouds,
the blue and green, the tempered purple hues,
and if from the land you peer up here,
from where the earth is dying, you'll see
me sigh, through flocks of hope,
and notice that I'm crying

A life form
Thriving on hatred
Reaped from societies
We are following our ancestors
Disregard the fact
That we are all human
our blood is red
I smirk when I’m contented
And shed tears when I’m poignant
We are all equal
cease this schism
And trounce racism
death, environment, green, life, nature, science, truth,
Where life does flourish,
In the heat of the jungle,
Death always follows --
Raising souls from the nether;
Reborn in starry ether.
creation, death, earth, environment, humanity, judgement, nature, nostalgia, planet, world,
More and more to our suburban sprawl
Proliferating roads with rush hour crawl.
Crush of humanity completely unfurled
Replacing an irretrievable natural world
Along with farm lands never more tilled
Buried by progress that’s never fulfilled.
Identical houses lined up in many plots
On biologically sterilized landscape lots.
Residers never happy with their things,
Joneses always having the latest bling.
We look in wrong quarters for invaders
Thinking foreign, possibly alien raiders,
Imaging assimilation coming from afar,
Blind to how much like the Borg we are.
abuse, environment, grief, pollution, war, wind, world,
The sun's turning pale is a threat, in fact
That directly affects solar system
The climate has already been much changed
With known-unknown, acute poisonous fume;
Role played by man is a serious fun,
Earth has already been dark for their wrong
Because randomly goes their dreadful gun,
Nuclear bombs fell all in destructive ring;
But, the earth's sky is yet clearly seen blue
Having been the immense background of all
Therefore, that is certainly a strong clue
They should undertake timely to handle;
So that, here the great way may be paved for
Saving earth with radiation free air.

I am the last sparrow
To foretell tomorrow
Losing lives of sorrow
I foresee that tomorrow.
I am the last sparrow
As an Egyptian pharaoh
Lifespan getting narrow
I foresee that tomorrow.
I am the last sparrow
As a drying bone marrow
Like the shooting blind arrow
I foresee that tomorrow.
