- Striking Fear Home -

 

As the winds breathe heavily darkened within fury
Moaning filled with clouds begins speaking 
Through stormy turbulent assaults with waves that kill

A ballad is blown away like feathers from angels wings
Rain falling heavily driven by natures unyielding force 
Trees bend to salute the host's almighty anger 

Hurricane's orchestra romancing chaos turns 
Striking tempest flashing lightening power of creation speaks 
Rumbling voices roaring echoes carried from the  heaven's  

The action and power of love both earthly and heavenly
Crackling forks sparking separating inside an air like music dawns
Floods flow down a neck chain around the mountain's face 

Rushing to an ocean's source where it's kissed by the salt of grace 
Washed in a seabed finding her resting place safe inside an oyster 
Enormous waves sad and monotonous, which eventually dies

Mountain

The airy mountain, lush and green, they call home Perched on shaky rock, the waters beneath swash and foam Goats graze, cattle feed, fields of corn and wheat they comb Stored in the belly of the hefty hill The harvest, food for all, food to fill Spring is here, they forget the winter chill Swimming in the mountain stream, singing of selfish praise Not a worried eye to be seen, to the sky a glass they raise Foolish people dance and scream, their minds muddled, their hearts ablaze Through the earthen caverns they wander Wealth and fortune they do squander They do not think, they do not ponder What a waste these people brought No knowledge gained, no answers sought Squabbles grow more and more, 'ore the land they fought Blood spilled, turning the mountain red The rocks toppled, the peak lost its head Waste away they do, no stopping 'till they're dead.

One Proud Yellow Dandelion

One Proud Yellow Dandelion

Lantanas and pears are lushly in bloom,
Baby chartreuse leaves brighten winter’s late gloom
And one proud yellow dandelion.

We wait for the redbuds – where are you?
There are dark spring clouds under the blue,
And one proud yellow dandelion.

Nandina berries like Christmas late,
Spring cold breezes now sealing their fate,
And one proud yellow dandelion.

Courageously the dandelion stiffly stands,
Knowing it will change, blow like sand,
And mother the earth with new children.

To bloom and fly away.

How the Moon does it

The moon spoons pieces of jeweled firmament from the universe's dark heart into her golden bowl, mixes incandescent milk with a cool touch, then pours it all out on us in tender love, hoping we are ready for such a gift. ----------------- December 19, 2016 For Kai Michael Neumann's contest - 'Moon Spoon'

Thoughts About Marigolds

Marigolds, bright spot of September,
When all around is drooping limber,
As life in accord with His plan remembers

To prepare itself to sleep.

You perk in yellows and burnished gold,
And tell us winter won't really blow cold,
And we won't truly grow old

As long as you are there.

You hold us in our dreary nature,
And our attention to you capture,
As holidays, parties and glories enrapture

Hot summer hearts with hope.

Ethiopian Eyes



Addis Ababa pulse,
Blue Nile passion flow
into the heart of a Mtoto midnight

Tropical forest desires,
soft Harari waves moving
at the tidal touch crescent height

Jijiga sepia legs
dancing Danakil closer to ebb dreams
Anticipated pleasure from the static electricity

Nubian swaying hips,
snowflake moans Mekelle melted
Zebra fire kiss ... burnished lips of lava intensity

Ethiopian eyes
ever ebony sparkling
Candice soul of a regal queen

Ethiopian eyes
ivory moonlight glistening
Love shared beneath a starlit covering  

Ethiopian shut eyes,
solar eclipse illuminating
Cosmic soul of a celestial being

Ethiopian open eyes,
angelic attraction overwhelming
Love vowed with a silhouette veil lifting

Ethiopian eyes
reveal a forever dawn
of a love affair never ending

A Taste of Summer

a fresh thirst quencher
sliced watermelon in red
alluring beauty

mulberry picking
romantic stolen kisses
dark purple dyed lips

crushed grape juice slithers
into her desirous mouth
she feasts avidly

overflowing bowl
red strawberries and ice-cream
summer temptation

City Of Trees



I saw one day a city of trees
Walking down a path with me
Following hidden eyes to see

Saplings jungled up together
Like a stream of walkers too
Confused at all by windy weather

Deer pellets scattered walk-aways
Somebody's got to clean that up
Small insects eat away the maze

Emerald canopy of light
Daylight flyers speeding through
Branches complicate their flight 

Crowded young trees struggling tight
Set an arboreal street fight
Leaping tall for teen age light

Botanical light shows in the trees
Sun rays scattering breezily through
Red and green for traffic leaves

Partying fireflies up all night
Celestial revue of starlight bright
Crickets and peepers sing delight

Subway system of crooked holes 
Gophers nudging sexy moles
Touching each other heading home

Spiders vending corpsal flies
In handy snacky six-pack buys 
To homeward-bound commuter eyes

Fauna's eating Flora The Breeze
Loving her out in the hot dry leaves
Completing her lust for life you see

And Green Man is the mayor bold
Dryad, she's his squeeze and maid
Public works by beavers laid

Learning to walk, a child of three
First time I saw the City of Trees
Dryad was holding her hand for me

Dryad, she's my love to be
Taking her inventory of bees
Holding her charms about the trees

So we say and so it seems
City of Trees and sunlight beams
Making love for me and my dreams

The Sleep of Youth

The Sleep of Youth

The yawning of the night light whispers,"Sleep"
As eyes close...And Day's woes...
Are lost in swift retreat.

Dreams saunter, softly searching, whom to grog...
With the ease...Of the breeze...
For sailing 'Tir na nog'.

TRISTICH TRIO

A TRISTICH TRIO
an unexpected guest arrives,
the daily routine is upset-
cancer leaves its calling card
........
tears begin to fall.
emotion becomes a flood-
a cataract of regret flows
.......
a realisation dawns,
fleeting thoughts crystallize-
as 'as is' moment of hope is born

Collectables, Treasures and Feelings

 
Collectables Collectables in a antique cabinet, static and dusty relics, yet- a hallow feeling dwells in my heart. Treasures A treasured old doll upon my lace bed, a tattered worn dress in pink & bow- I imagine my grandma at play. Feelings A framed picture on my dresser, hand painted, black on white- within my heart lives on. _____________________ November 15, 2016 Tristich/Collectables, Treasures and Feelings Copyright Protected, ID 850272 Vernal 2017 Standard Contest Brian Strand First Place

Travelling with the LIGHT




As the s h a d o w of  life lengthens .................

each day of travel is suspense -

but the Light of the world strengthens.
