Living Seasons Through

Bodies together
Pressed against the cold, harsh night
We hold on to love

In the sweet, soft spring
We lay on a tall, steep hill
And hold on to love

Summer's baking heat
Hiding in the shade of trees
Still holding our love

The leaves are falling
Crunching beneath our footsteps
Forever, our love

We'll last through seasons
Enjoy our love together
Just you wait, my love.

Fall to Winter, Rise to Spring

                                      Fall to Winter, Rise to Spring

                                            Fallen, down and out
                                     Frozen, not dead nor decayed
                                           Rising, faith with wings!

Broken Branch

Broken Branch

Winter-gray tree branch
       Hangs low, stricken by the storm
               Broken... but alive.

   relying on chance 
trying to find a needle 
   inside a haystack

a well-balanced choice
  a winner or a loser
   you can bet on it

     when tossing a coin
the most probable outcome
  would be heads or tails

     lack of dialogue
increases the probable
   failure of marriage

        waking up early
does not always guarantee
    you’ll see the sun rise

  weighing pros and cons
when faced with a decision
  between right or wrong

Haiku 1-4

     The serpent sleeps
Coiled, reclining at my feet
     Dreaming of deceit.

  Tempting marshmallows:
Do not rush. Delay will bring

      Morning dew glistens.
She cried her eyes out all night.
      Let the sun shine bright.

        Almond trees blossom
Lightning flashes, thunder drawls.
            Do not be afraid.

Hundreds dead now
We only know one name, one face
A prayer for them say

In 1994, William N. Britton wrote the , "Legend of Rainbow Bridge". It is a hope filled story of where all (pets) "special friends" go when they leave this earth. It's a place of "beautiful meadows, grassy hills...fresh spring water...plenty of their favorite food to eat...others to play with...". That place is called "Rainbow Bridge" and it is where they wait until we get there, "just this side of Heaven", so we may go in together. db

thoughts keep on knocking does one open door or not? nobody is home look outside window leaves say hi, also the bird I just smile back
somebody's whistling glad he's happy to do work... wait for 5 o'clock
handful of sand scatter it around... each one stings eyes
winds keep on wishing whispering their thoughts... but I can't translate

I hope so butt's now asleep but brain isn't... lucky butt think I went semi-crazy super random stuff here, went where my thoughts led me **for pd's contest haiku gone crazy--- ok, maybe me gone crazy

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.

Howling and blowing madly
Tree swayed clinging tight

Her leaves flew away
Carried by the mighty wind
Plucked off untimely

The sun is shining brightly
A new hope is born

The lone tree stand tall
Bare and naked stripped of leaves
Basking in the sun

Why Are You Being This Way

Why are you being like this?
Oh how I just wished we could be friends,
But it ain't gonna happen,
Because you hate me for no reason.
Just because I'm not popular, because
I am less than you.
I just wished you knew,
Knew how I felt about,
How I used to like you,
All the things I did,
I was scared to talk to you,
Then when I found enough courage,
To talk, you block me out of your life,
As if I never exsisted.
Maybe I never exsisted around you,
But how can you be so oblivious,
And miss that I needed you?
Why oh why can't you see this pain?
Do you care?
Do you wish you could know me better?
Do you ever think of me at least once?
Do you care wheather I live or die?
Of course you don't because,
I am just dead to you,
I am just a pity ghost to you,
A horrible nightmare that won't go away.
I slowly die inside,
From all the times I've cried.
(I've cried for you.)
You look at me,
With your beautiful brown eyes,
You look right through me,
Like I was never alive.
I am invisible,
I always will be to you.
For some reason I knew,
I would always be like this
To you.
I wish you were missin' me 
Like I was missin' you,
But no matter what I do,
I am always dead to you.
Someday I hope we can be friends.
<3 I Miss You <3

- Truth
Remember the truth,
Question those in government…
In full glory reflected.

- Mistake
To war is error,
To offer peace is sublime…
Bombs bursting in air.

- Belief
No matter how hard,
Stand up for what you believe…
O! say can you see.

- Responsibility
I love my country,
Like baseball and apple pie…
The home of the brave.

I miss you so much,
This aching in my heart is so unbearing,
It feels as if my heart is shattering,
And the only thing that can fix it,
It seems is your words, and your deep, crisp voice.
I miss you so much,
I am at loss of words,
When it comes to describing,
Describing how much I miss you.
It seems like I can't live without you,
Because you are such a great friend,
A friend I don't want to lose.
If I ever lost you, I don't know what I would do,
I would blame God, I am really starting to doubt him,
He has taken Pappy(grand-grandpa).
My sisters(best friends).
Ashley and Tiffany Brown,
And it feels as if he's trying to take everyone I love.
Always~N~Forever, Briana Lynn Palmer

The Prayers

         Truckers Prayer:
Dark hill, sliding ice
O cargo of faith suffice
Wheel my heart to thee
                                          Miners Prayer:
                                     From heaven so far
                                     A darkness mines shafts of fear
                                     And your footsteps here
Shippers Prayer:
Sleep within my heart
Where breaks the tumult of sea
Like a voice of calm
                                         Mothers Prayer:
                                     Hold my hand always
                                     And my love when you are worn
                                     By life's feet in you
Pastors Prayer:
Kneeling lone I stand
For all I am, at thy throne
Vessel of a man

                                      The light blinds our heart
                                      May our eyes see unseen things

I don't understand why,
Why my best friend, doesn't wanna be friends anymore.
Caleb I know I may have hurt you,
I know I may have made you laugh, I did, and I made you smile,
I love talking to you, but for some reason you don't wanna talk to me,
I am wondering why.
Caleb, I miss you like hell, and I am going through hell not being able to,
To talk to you, to hear your voice, all I have are pictures, and a picture,
A picture in a frame. 
CAZ it is killing me inside being away from my best friend,
My one and only true best friend,
The only friend that has been by my side, through thick and thin,
Has been there for me when my great-grandpa died, when me and Josh broke up,
When my life didn't mean anything, the one who saved me from killing myself,
The one who talked to me everyday just to make me smile, and have a good day.
Now you are killing me by not talking to me!! Did you forget about me??
Did you forget I was there for you too?? That we were here for each other, 
That we made the promise to always be here for each other??
I miss you a lot, and I just want you to come back home Caleb Allen Zummak.

Laden cumberland and amber
Weeping snow from the spicy sweet shrubs

An acre in Eden

Eden's dusk beams light 
As shining dawn sails asky
Amidst sea of gleams

'Lil' planets trade zones
Webbing auras with passion
In fate guarded bends

Yet 'still' were a few
The 'nerdy' moon, 'sorry' star
Rolling out lone cold

Within an acre
They grazed rays, lighting deep flames
'A new begining'

Marred with dusts and doubts
Distance, time and spatial threats
Strangling lanky hope

Beyond lenghts of Nile
Word travels from miles apart
Moistening dried lips

 At the birth of Sun
Before the Star, the Moon lived
Sage to Eden's shores

Pending hymns and songs
Howling drones of liberty
at shaky hearts stake

Still Eden's field blooms
Its grasses greener with hopes
Of a sterling dusk

The human brain's space
Contains storage room for more
Than three million years

The brain has branches
That looks like trees alive that 
Feed on chemicals

Fear produces bad
Toxic chemical that makes
Black branches in brain

Love cast out the bad
Produces good chemicals
That makes the brain well

(A book called "Who Stitched Off My Brain" tells about this and how to change bad into good.)

Tenacity with a plan,
Purpose unravels.

Past mistakes earsed,
Repaired, move forward.

Grant a smile to a soul,
Sprinkle life on gloom.

Captivate a heart,
Show tenderness to the lost,
Wipe a precious tear.

Notes enrich morning,
A melody masterpiece,
Creative juice flows.

Gorgeous Garden

(a few pairs of haikus. 
Enjoy this unique style of writing and pen on, 
dear gorgeous poets! 
Let your poetic talent grow like a gorgeous garden...
thinking of a garden, 
here's a poem dedicated to gardening!):

Dirty hands touched ground
I run my hands on fresh land

Hands handling hope
I take my tools and work hard
I'm a HARD worker! 
(Oh yeah! You can tell by the sweat of my brow!)

Loner with tired hands
I do labor with fervor - 
Not a forlorner! 

I take my time . . . to graze
Around my Gorgeous Garden 
I'm a true GREEN THUMB!

"I work till I see the beads of sweat down my face - that's evidence that I'm a dedicated worker on this liberating land...
I work to see what tomorrow brings...I'm standing my ground and I'm plowing my gorgeous garden!
I handle difficult tasks back then and right this instant! Now, I know where I stand! I can make a stand in this land that is 100% grand!
With my gardening tools and I, we can work miracles and we can work dusk to dawn again and again!" - a quote that I have made!

I Do Love You

I do love you,
I cannot describe it,
The love my heart and soul, and my whole being feels for you my love.

I do love you, 
I dream and daydream, of that day where you say I do,
Because that means you love me too.

I do love you,
You make me laugh when I am sad, and you pick me up when I am down, and you are the light of my bad day.

I do,
I do are just simple words, but they mean a lot to me,
You see, they are not just three letters, they aren't just two words,
These two words go a long way.

I do love,
You taught me how to contain myself, and not lose myself, and not get mad too easily, if I do, I can quickly recover from it.

So I want to say thank you my baby Dustin James Palmer, for being there for me and saying,
I do love you.

I slowly die inside
From all the times I've cried.
(I've cried for you.)
You look at me
With your beautiful eyes
You look right through me
Like I was never alive.
I am invisible
I always will be to you.
For some reason I knew
I would always be like 
This to you.
I wish you were missin' me
Like I was missin' you
But no matter what I do
I am always dead to you.

Nothing is going, on my way, "It's my time" is hard to say
How to move, how to fall, frustration is growing tall

With lodes of hope of mom & dad, I stand tall.. cuz i can't fall
two pairs of never ending dreams, I'll make my way.. Someday

I Will Never Be What You Want Me To Be

I know you may hate me,
I know I may have dissapointed you,
But I promise you, I can change.
Father I know I have lied to you,
I know that I may have disobeyed you, but
Can you please let that go,
Can we be a family again?
"I promise I'll be better, daddy
Please don't leave. In a family portrait
We look pretty happy, we look
Pretty normal, can we go back to that?"
Those few lines were from P!nk's
Song "Family Portrait." Dad I promise
I'll try to be what you want me to be,
But I'll never be enough for you.
I'll never be what you want me to be,
I'll never be perfect for you,
Oh, yeah, and I'm sorry father If I don
Not live up to your expectations.

Trapped and Then Saved

I could'nt escape it, it had me
trapped. I was screaming bloody muder,
but noone could hear me,
and if they did, why were'nt they helping me?
Didn't they hear me screaming for help?
Didn't they see the large knife, that
was being held to my throat,
he had me trapped, and I was screaming trying to
get away from him, I finally got free,
I ran, but he caught me, and gave me a small
cut, I bled, and screamed,
hot tears falling from my face,
That is when he appeared
the love of my life,
he saved me,
He killed him, and took the knife
from him, and deposed it in the 
dumpster. "Why does a gut need a knife
like that anyway?"
"I have no Idea." I replied in a shaky voice.
He pulled me in for a kiss, and
said, "I'm never gonna let that 
happen again, baby doll."
I felt relieved, to know that I didn't
have to live in fear
anymore, knowing that he was gone

Where her nest is –
It is three inches in length in this
Gigantic oak hidden from the day’s full light

I watched these noisy and tiny birds
To find where they will be next spring –
I gave myself up in front of too many questions 
In a short period of time!

nightfall on ocean
     sea of black and indigo

What a Year

I am back here now
Wondering how I survived
Trying to relax

Twists and turns endng
It is time for a new bed
A place for resting

The backward glance
Reminds me that time passes
Always a new start

Just when you breathe out
Something else needs attention
That is life, I guess

Every year passes
New insights and blinders come
Amid confusion

Step out on the road
Find your balance once again
Breathe in and breath out

four haiku

 Only a fall leaf  
Blows where the wind takes it
We take the omnibus  

Oak leaf scours asphalt 
Autumn´s  worn out dead beat
Can´t dance tango

Taliban under umbrellas 
 Listen out for drones 

Steps on gritted road 
Slam of a car door and voices 
The song of life

Is your best, your very best.

Never Hate You

How are you today?
Are you still depressed with life?
Is it killing you?

This is crazy, babe,
You have got to understand,
I just want to help.

Why not let me in?
What are you afraid of, huh?
Why make it this hard?

Just let me help you!
Would it really be that hard?
I want to get it.

I want to help you,
Through everything you need.
I don’t want to push.

You make this too hard,
Let me try to comfort you,
But you can’t just talk.

I think I get it,
But how can I be sure, huh?
Just trust me, you’ll see.

We may not be us,
But it’s hard not to miss you,
The real you, that’s right.

Don’t know you that well,
But I do know you’re not this,
You are not this guy.

You’re awesome and sweet.
I know it’s weird to say, but
I could never hate you.

Leaves swayed above the ground--

Harsh coldness
Thawing retreat;
Life in upswing

New arrival
Spring sapling;
Promise in motion

Windy echoes;
First day of spring

Emerging beauty,
Cold winter gone;
Spring rapture

Sunshine spreads
Trees sprouting
New leaves

Glimpse here
Unfurling saplings;
Spring awakening

On the edge
Spring protrudes;
Cold winter decline

Dawn sings
New sunrise;
Turning a page

Coldness receding
Sparkling sunshine;
Spring's first fling

New day
Spring clean;
New leaves sprout

Joy in spring rain --
Bursting buds,
Zest awakens

Days and nights and the universe

Days and nights and the universe 
The musty monsoon 
insects with swelled bellies
soggy paper boats.
a black feathered bird peeps in,
there is no return.
Close the eyes, its night.
A bat has taken a bite; 
the fruit rolls away. 
The desolate rails.
Millions of butterflies, 
they reign the wild shrubs.
Crystallized water, 
this rock has witnessed years,
a fly has more eyes.

Shattering like falling glass,
Can't be healed,
Created by my best friend,
Can't heal this shattered torn heart, 
Can't put it back together.

Why can't you see Caleb, I
need you to be here for me,
Please stop this shattering
In my heart?

Please heal these wounds,
Heal this heart,
Make it pump blood,
Again, make it perfect.

Shattered heart,
I'm gone forever,
Six feet under is 
Where my body remains. I was buried alive.

Your influence can be heard
Worlds are so varied

Breathing the same air
How can we tune out our pain 
Finding our own peace?

Double Rainbow

The hard rain tap danced;
Quickly finishing the song,
Winds parted the clouds.

The bright setting sun
Painted a double rainbow
Conjoined by blue mist.

Its water colors
So vivid seemed tangible
Piercing through sky dust.

Amber rays mirrored
The bow in opposition
Foreshadowing night.

Yet, the very ends 
Of the arc I saw touched earth.
...felt I could find gold.

Ready, get set now!
Positioning for today,
Leap with a light heart.

Flying to the sky,
The open heart singing tunes,
smiles with confidence

You can be more free
To be everthing you are,
Strong and soft and warm.

Capture this moment,
This voyage with your love,
Swaying to and fro.

Meeting the wonder 
Of life's obstacles and strife.
You will find balance.

Trust in your river,
Respecting the surprises,
You can paddle out.

The strength is in you
Finding your voice,
It is on the way!

Darkness dawns upon me 
With such dark I cannot see
It constricts  my lungs as I breathe
As I sit in the corner and chatter my teeth

Sending prayers of happiness to the one above
Hopefully he will answer with love
To save me from my fear
Oh ,please help me dear

Thoughts of nothing within 
As the night creeps to an end
All I can think about 
Wants me to scream out loud

With terror among us all
We will surely fall
Unless the one from above
Spreads us with his love

He made sacrifice for us to live
And murder, suffering and pain is all we give?
Come on people try to find your heart
You and I both know your smart

You may not be as sharp as a dart 
But you have the might of a lion’s heart
You cannot give in 
To the feelings within

Telling you to do this and that
Its just love we lack
Just reach to the stars above
And fly like a dove

Fly to the sky
Oh so very high
Find what you have been missing
Even if it’s the loved one your kissing

Darkness is powerful
And make us bleed and drool
But light can overpower 
When it’s the lord’s hour

Coming home

-  Train Whistle
Leaves are on the ground,
A North wind is picking up...
The train-whistle blows.

-  Reality
Is it for the dead?
How long do we have to stay...
Cold reality.

-  Hopeful
Hope springs eternal,
New ideas and new leaders...
Not much of a choice.

-  Tragedy
They are coming home,
Why do we keep forgetting...
What a tragedy.

Song of Awakening

Atheism wakes
The world floods all his senses
Drenched gray newspaper

Earth closes its doors
Positivist hypercube
He calls it no God

Belief awakens
The world floods all his senses
Drenched gray newspaper

Earth closes its doors
Positivist hypercube
He sees light through cloud

And hope in the blood
Temptation a winding brook
In which we all bathe

Mosquito must prey
Or die, and die anyway
No simple answers

But how much wiser
Must we be than mosquito!
We can opt for faith!

A dove’s song stirs baby hymns
I choose to believe

Fairy Nature


I'm fairy nature,
come to collect fall's leaf wares
to help make a coat.

A coat of sunsets,
a last breath of summer's glow
to wrap up autumn.

I disguise myself
living amongst the woodlands,
squirrels, bugs, birds, bees.

Slowly with magic
I single handedly turn
the seasons over;

sweeping winds and driving rains,
giving nature rest till spring.

I nourish the land.
Autumn's blanket becomes crisp,
stark, white, purity,

I contrast, redecorate 
new, sleek, sexy, wavy tones.


All 5 senses are expressed within this write, looking at touch, taste, sight, sound and smell.
'make a coat','wrap up' all indicate being touched or enfolded for warmth/ does 
winter's 'blanket'

remember that time

Remember the past?
When it was hard to last?
When people died left and right?
And went down with nearly a fight?

The ones who stood tall
And picked each other back up when they fall
The ones who believe in freedom
The ones who  fought to keep them

They kept pushing forward
Even when people fell backwards
They heard screaming through the night
And  heard words of fight

When the sun nearly rose
They had to get back on their toes
Only to walk head on into death
Everyone had words of distress 

They would unfold their little blankets to sleep
“I hope I get home alive” they weep
As  ones who struggle to carry on
Its their knees they fall upon

Crying tears of happiness to hold their loved ones again
Only to have their thoughts taken away from them
As the fire of guns ring in their head
And killed that guys best friend named Fred

Sirens of emergency ring
Our troops in green
Forward march ahead
In remembrance of that guy Fred

Victory they sing
As jolly bells ring
Time to go home guys
Thanks for letting our flag fly

Inside looking out!

Fast streaks across the dark sky
