Premium Member The Feather
 
A feather lost, gliding and drifting, it soars, 
in the mighty wind, it twirls and swirls, as if dancing;
once, the People owned all the wilderness,
they called it home, now they watch it be destroyed. 

There, high upon a sheer...Read More

Dear poet
I saw your lies written on a piece of paper 
Wrapped in a beautiful brown envelope 
Those sugar coated words all in black 
Symbolizing your love for another man's love  

Dear poet

Brings life back from old
Said to be a bird of wonders
Rainbow bird that flies
With the sunrise and...Read More

in cardinal winds as red letters churn,

proclamating the Gospel to each earthly corner,
through bolted borders, even reaching the scorner.
Psalms of praise pour throughout...Read More

Within a frightened world
you arise with impressive dignity
accepting, knowing who you are...

With unruffled self-confidence
you worry not what others may think of you

illuminates your practical awareness of life
springing from the vitality...Read More

And I don't know if

On these streets

The whole world is burning
Everything is turned to ashes
The survivors hold the burden 
Of building the world from scratches

They cried and wept for days

The time has come
the earth is full
of things about to bloom

The warming sun

on Mother Nature's scene

This time of year
restores to me

A seafaring schooner steered by the stars
safely navigates hidden schools once more.
And avoiding close calls, she bears no scars
tethered safe to a beam of light offshore.
