LET THE GAMES BEGIN

1 Prey let the games begin

 

Let the leaves change colors & fall.

Shades of orange, yellow, & red.

Autumn, the best season of all.

Take care when you head hits the bed.

The Dead descend; our town will fall.

WHERE THE WIND BLOWS

The trees of the forest shiver and shake,

their long limbs trembling for the next quake.

Their bodies blaze a glaring white

with tears frozen from their new plight. 

The world has become hard and cold.

My trembling body feels old.

Surrounded on four sides by white, 

the bright glare has blinded my sight.

White is the color of my nightgown

as I stand and shiver with a frown.

A shadow emerges from the trees.

I hope it is not him, pretty please.

My body moves forward against my will.

I grab a thick tree and try to hold still.

I dig my feet into the packed snow,

but I must go where the wind might blow.

THE PERFECT MELODY

THE PERFECT MELODY The air is heavy. Clouds roll in. The sky grows dark. You hear the first drops. The water pounds on the roof. A staccato melody of its own. Pound, pound, pound. Tap, tap, tap. Rain washes our streets. Clears our minds. A new day...

 

THE PERFECT MELODY

The air is heavy.
Clouds roll in.
The sky grows dark.
You hear the first drops.
The water pounds on the roof
in a staccato melody of its own.
Pound, pound, pound.
Tap, tap, tap.
Rain washes our streets.
Clears our minds.
A new day arrives.

 

 

GOODBYE OLD FRIEND

An Island Escape

The world is changing.

Forests are dying.

Animals are becoming extinct.

Nature has taken control.

 

Days are warmer.

Rain falls harder.

Earthquakes rock the planet.

Hurricanes bring the winds.

 

Ocean waves dance to the deadly tune.

Bow to our new foe, Mother Nature.

Crime does its share,

But nature cleans the slate.

 

Towns and cities topple

Beneath the rubble.

The salt water hits my face

As I watch the waves rise.

 

I wait for the beautiful sight

To turn deadly and reckless.

The laps at the shore

Become heavy slaps.

 

Rocks and debris are

Thrown into the wind.

Soon I am drenched.

The ocean has come ashore

 

To wreck havoc on our lives.

My eyes tear as I search for

the ocean’s lost beauty.

I search for my old friend.

 

My old friend who’d soothed my fears.

My friend is long gone.

All is gone.

And so will we.

 
 

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

 

What can be better

than sitting on a bench

in the warm weather,

watching people, and

daydreaming?

Nothing.

 

opticallyaroused:

 

Warm weather,

soft winds,

pretty blooms,

are all part of the

best time of year.

Welcome to spring.

 

Spring = Flowers.

 

Hope springs eternal.

Enjoy the new season!

 

YOUR LAST BOW

The mighty now fall,

Who had been so tall.

Melting to the sea,

Where no one can see

The majesty of your height

Or the last breath of your fight.

Please don’t leave us now.

Don’t take your last bow.

The earth will be a sadder place

Without your bright and shiny face.
