till the hills ignite to a shining flame,
when a shower of meteors streaks the sky

Broken Pride
The summer is over but things are getting hotter
The summer is over and people are getting viler
The sky is overcast and the birds are flying around
It feels like a stranger has just entered the town.

Premium Member An Anxiously Anticipated Event
Dear John,

All day
I loaded up with a cascading river
of mixed anxiety and anticipation
about what to safely and kindly,
transparently and vulnerably
compassionately, so non-violently, share,
what to communicate;

Which narrative tributaries to choose
within this vast spacetime stream
of choices
felt depressions...

Premium Member Now And Then And Now Again
Though still within our infancy, 
we strive to thrive, but woefully 
we flash and flaunt our 'primacy',
display our trophies pridefully.
Our terra firma ecstasy
destroys survival's harmony,
lays waste to life on land and sea.
Mankind, thy name...

Premium Member Another Gloomy Sky In November
The sunless evening is deprived
of its ardent and vivid colors,
the mischievous clouds
in their hastiness extend
their thin and tenebrous veil 
increasing my body's chill.

They intensify the dreary darkness
invading the lively landscapes under
a silent universe so distant...

I wrap
my Autumn world
around you

Calliope turning
raising the 
season’s poetry, 

I am she

with Summer’s 
dying leaves 

Twirling you up into 
my warm golden brown 

hear me sing, 
whispering notes,
holding keys 

towards you 
you're approachable

On the night before Christmas, alone in my house,

Ready to snap if I counted more sheep.

The Question
True love is unquestionable. 
What is true love?
To me; it is more feeling based rather than definitively worded. 
Emotional attached, formed mentalities that are equally paired with an immaculate physical connection. 
Collected bi-gender, shared love—

Galactic Strings or Void of Space?

A poem’s akin to a necklace, one fashioned
of water-worn pebbles (from rarest of realms),
stone cold truths tumble-polished, love’s chord weaves together.
