Dane Land
We drove down the road. I saw such wondrous things. My eyes took in the steep sided grassy valley. In the bottom was a sparkling river. Sun reflected on the water which flowed over rocks. The small river had cut...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul XLIV

“Love is a hero’s journey, and the hero’s journey is a noble but difficult path.”    — Marianne Williamson

there's a crackling under foot

Premium Member Who Creates Mess
In the grace of the future.

Nature needs to nurture.

Our wisdom is so intricate.

We pollute then forget.

Then we blame others.

For polluting nature.

But when it comes to us.

It's alright, it sometimes happens.

Such is our mindset.

If we do, it's ok.

But for the rest.

We...Read More

Probably one of the most beautiful trees
Talking about palms, gently swaying in the breeze
So unmistakable
Even inspirational
But could leave us with a palm tree disease

Searched for the Middle Way between Nothing and All

Counted his blessings and figs as his thoughts focussed

In meditation for humility compassion and lasting peace

"A Rainbow in My Clouds"

Do you think 
you are better?
Yes you follow the rules 
like a good girl

of modesty 
self righteousness
genuflecting before fools

Look outside the Circle ;

What you're standing within,
it’s an old boring closed tool 
you run around inside

Premium Member Blackbird is Dead II
Blackbird, blackbird, where have you gone?
Here the limbs you lately danced upon,
In sunset orange, in sunset red,
Now the grapevine says, "Blackbird is dead."

Disbelieving owl cries, "Who? Who?"
Disheartened rooster won't cock-a-doodle-doo.
Nanette laid flowers on the grave.
He took but little, but much...Read More

That only i could tell
To comfort all my nightmares away
You see i passed my exams
By counting the wool on sheep
And woke up in another street
With only your face for cover

God gave man the breath of Life.
Took man’s rib, made man a wife.
Beguiled by the serpent, she ate from the tree of knowledge of darkness and light.
She should have never taken a bite.
Her husband decided to join in.
That’s the story...Read More

Ode To Our Raccoon’s
By: Tom Wright 

Around two thirty most mornings,
I gaze out the rear window and see.
A family of Raccoon’s foraging,
on pecans from under our tree.

Pecan hulls litter the sidewalks,
but of these morsels I won’t deprive.
For I realize It’s...Read More

Blue bells rang at the fields of Flanders and beyond

Orange agency denuded humanity down to the core

Purple Hearts were pinned to hearts full of murder

White phlegm oozed unnerved devilish contagion

Green bile slowly trickled away from soul’s conscience

Yellow sun vanished in...Read More

My January baby that should have been,
Just a small dot full of hopes and dreams.

To my knees I drop
when will the misery dissapear,
why cant i just block the terrors out?

i've drifted from the correct route,

A tree troll with three toes
tried to trap a leaping leprechaun
with a black claw bear paw trap.
But he stubbed toe three in the trap in the tree,
Snip snap toe three was gone.

Lazy Bird
A bird perched in a leafy tree
Looking all around
It spied a big fat juicy worm
Wriggling on the ground

This lazy bird kept looking
At the worm from up the tree
And thinking dreamily
I'll have that worm for tea

The worm was oblivious
Of that lazy...Read More

Icy air whistles around my ear,
as sparkling snowflakes 
dance across the frosty sky.

Tiny snowflakes tickle my 
nose, as i lay in the snow 
making a snow angel.

Shimmering icicles dangling 
from tree branches, and 
snowmen appear on every corner.

Crisp footprints left...Read More

The Tree's Legacy
The tree is dying,
Its color slowly fading,
Desperate, he keeps writing,
Vaguely Degrading.

The tree knows his time has come,
He knows his death is soon,
So he dwells in what he's become,
Wallowing so dark and gloom.

Though he feels he will leave no legacy,
He'll leave...Read More

I never know what will happen…what memories I’ll see
but I love when my imagination merges with my memory.

My memory picks a person…sometimes quite randomly
and my imagination sets that person…right in front of me.

It happened at the end of a morning...Read More

The shade is nice under the large tree, but once the shade is lost, the wanderer will die.
When the small tree can finally leave the shadow of the larger tree, it can feel the sun’s ray.
But the shadow is comfortable,...Read More

From Death to Life
A leaf on a big tree was happily hanging 
Favorably for every passer-by just to see
He was appreciatively coloured green
Like a bean, he was very much attractive

A treacherous wind rose up to shake’im fall
Forcibly, on the ground he landed green

On the meadow green near the river Avon,
deep in thought, I stood leaning on  a tree,
Golden Sun rays went painting the town,
When I saw a singing boatman sail past me.

Premium Member in a field laced with nevers


Sitting alone 
in a field laced with nevers
that sunlight avoids
as stars fade from view

picking a clover
of unlucky petals
found on the edge 
of a soft summer hue

Seeing a path
leading up to tomorrow
winding its way
past the frown on my face
