Feathers escaping from the pillow-heaven
Confusing the air
With the steadiness of a stampede

White fleecy lambs atop every protrusion
Sleek ermine boas
Draped upon the...

Listening to the thunder cracking through
the layers of air. Looking at the lightning,
brightening and frightening the darkness away,

The last moment of his life came
The beyond anxiously awaited to receive him into
Its eternal embrace
He was terrified

her mate flew out upon a quest
The Promise of Spring - A Fibonacci
hope, love, nature,
While you sleep
Lady dressed in white
And melt your cold heart made of ice
High into the sky
And fall as raindrops from God’s...
Oh how I hate the winter where my limbs are exposed and seen
I just adore the spring time, I wear my dress of emerald green
The Essence of Rose
In the twilight hours
Out here on this ledge
I am filled
With the essence of Rose
As a gentle breath stirs
Her fallen petals
That long and winding...
A Whisper on the Wind
I was a gentle whisper upon the wind
That swept over the green valleys
I climbed the height of the highest mountain
And murmured softly as I descended...

Sub-titled: What’s in YOUR Fridge?
Please allow me to introduce myself:
My name is Ms. Fridge A. Daire
I stand tall among my lesser cohorts

As many times have we said goodnight,

My diamonds never saw the light of day
Since granma's death,I'd been that way
Her grandson went...
Gone But Not Forgotten
Trills tumble through an air long silenced
