There is a place, 
in the middle of nowhere... now. (hushed whisper) 
It is hot and cooking,
and yet...things are green. 
Nature has taken back, 
what man destroyed. 
Maybe not the way it should be, 
but maybe it does not matter,...Read More

perched upon the alder branch
all-seeing specter
with 360 degree vision
gathering knowledge.

All The President's Memes
All the President's memes;
Rose up into an army of stems;
They grew bold legs to carry them;
Towards the good fight.

Though cavalier and sensing right;
They lacked a head to give foresight;
They strayed into a chasmed height;
And tumbled in.

They spiralled, spinning through an...Read More

Brighter than the stars at night

Nature is colour, the vastness of space, 
The roll of the thunder, the streams gentle waves.
Goodbye fellow being, be gone to the lost.
Cut down by life, we are still counting the cost,
And we may never...Read More

Beautiful world
Beautiful world where miracles begin.
World of glory, stunning nature hear her sing.
Rivers flow into oceans, creating life.

Skies are blue and filled with puffs of cotton candy.

Fertile Soil
Let’s dive into our mind
Look around – perhaps nothing is as it seems
There’s a unique perception
An amalgamation - of what we call me

Like rich fertile soil
Brimming with potentialities
Nature verses nurture
So grow the seeds

The roots grow deep
Manifesting in the subconscious mind
Breaking...Read More

Nature Of Life FriendShip

We make great effort and style,

But we don’t make close friends,

Together we play great roles on the stage,

But we don’t make friends, even close ones

That goes on,

We don’t recognize them later in life,

Even though we see them passing by us,

They...Read More

If There Was No Poetry
If there was no poetry
I would visit ward psychiatry
For poems give energy
Free me from an allergy
When we vent our woes
Wonders wander with us
Nature gives insight much
Only to bounce back such

If there was no poetry
I would visit cemetery
For there I understand...Read More

The sun is out
In full gear
What fun
What a day
Tooting its own horn
Blaring and glaring
How absolutely divine
Delightful and delirious
Playfully parading
Elated and excited
Gorgeously giddy
Joyous and jolly
The sun’s come out to play

O Stars
When I goggle at the screen
Of wild black yonder,
O Stars! I feel a blazing avidity 
In my vital limbs

Elan eyes of the angels,
Invested in with thousand finesses,
Show your cloudless sparkle to
the ignorant world

The magnetic star adjacent the Moon
to guide the...Read More

Premium Member INDIAN SUMMER

In a world
Of blues and greys
Streaked in swirls
Of sunlit shadows
Hints of gold
Tinge a brisk morning air
The cool stillness ruffled
Of a glassy lake
Not a sound it makes to wake
A sleepy drowsy nature
Gearing up to hibernate
All good things come to an end

In the midst of the forest deep, 
Within evolving work of art,
Wherein men's green edifice dream does  
Begin natures evensong heart. 

Old timber yielding whilst in still
Hold fast, nestling mistral wind chants, 
Bold aroma of petrichor
Fold upon pulse lands...Read More

and found nature at her purest;
in a glen I found a heavenly scene.
of flowers, trees, vines all tangled green.

It was so beautiful I thought it was an illusion.

Written by Gail DeBole
January 20, 2020

A flock of Flamingos so pink
Had feathers that made people blink.
They group-danced with heads high
In a Flamenco style.
Ate shrimp, algae, and water to drink.

Author's Note: The type of food affects the color of the feathers.

Yes I now hold the memory in my heart
And see the images as I near sleep
Though they are gone they still remain a part
Of my own world, reside in spirit deep
