Bright yellow sparks glisten around the landscape
Sheer environment expose
Warmth slinks down every step
Spur like rays muster in long light
The wolves wait to howl
Soon--Bunch of flowers
Huddle in with sunlit love

dream, earth, environment, flower, imagery, nature, sky,
Build me a dream of roses gold;
velveteen beauties to behold.
Give them songs, so they may sing;
their gentle voices, how they’ll ring.
Build me a dream of sapphire blue;
with periwinkle skies, azure waters too.
Build me a dream of castles fine;
composed of stones, like diamond mines.
Build me a dream of emerald light,
one with doves, in joyous flight.
Build me wings of solid gold;
encourage me them, to unfold.
When you build, build with love;
so I can soar with loving doves.

environment, god, moon, night,
In a vampish way, the moon erupts from the sea
pirouetting across white cap and trough valley
through an impassioned performance of love set free
in a vampish way.
A persistent tease, she sets her mind to dally
with Eros’ desirous heart as her victory,
only to break it with her vigorous sally.
Darkened midnight skies find her in malicious glee
as she counts coup for a final mental tally
and she continues en l’air on her odyssey
in a vampish way.
by Emile Pinet |
earth, environment, feelings, imagery, nature, pollution,
Upon tomorrow's arrival,
today fades into yesterday.
And apathy spurs denial
as endangered animals die.
Wherever concrete cities rise
collateral damage occurs.
And as jets traverse the skies,
wild birds are annihilated.
We dedicate our existence
to a utopia of steel.
And survive in asphalt jungles,
shadowed by lofty achievements.
Reality is a mirage
projected upon collapsing hopes.
And yet, safe in our cubicles,
we love our plastic paradise.
Our planet's irrevocably
changing into a barren sphere.
And a legacy of fools; greed
disguises profit as progress.

environment, love, rain, weather, winter,
Oregon’s, wildlife, mountains, lakes, and bogs
Fields of green, awaken refreshed at dawn
Where salmon runs the rivers blue to spawn
Drawn wandering above the sea of fog
Black-tailed and mule deer birth their newborn fawns
Where shaggy mane elks labor their spring calves
Rustle sounds while they graze off open paths
Wander under the full moon of predawn
Sea of umbrellas on rainy season
Fireplace frames warm sputtering ember flames
Snow cold, in fella’s embrace with no shame
Turning me into shades of pink crimson
Savoring the earth's nurturing labor
Giving my heart to the verdant nature
My home for 36 years
by Barbara Gorelick |
Funny, friendly, bashful and sometimes bone-headed
Little sister of Dr. Daniel Merrill
Lover of the written word, my grandchildren and the natural world
I feel wonder at new life, love for my friends, and confusion with math
Afraid for the environment, abused women and children, and afraid of snakes
I would like to see Machu Picchu, my mothers's face once more and The Giants win the World Series

is it the wave kissing the sand
or is it the ocean
- deep from her heart
but always with passion?
is it the sand kissing back
or is it the land
- happily losing ground
with every kiss
to his eternal mistress,
the occupant of his soul?
is it this poem touching your heart
or is it our souls
- hugging each other
on a sandy beach,
wide and infinite,
day in and day out?

This is a poem about one of our endangered birds of prey, the Marsh Harrier.
Dancing in the air
moving to an unheard tune
under the summer moon.
never to be seen on stage
nor laid upon the page
Ballerina of the sky
above the ground
your searching eye.
Dancer of the air
princess of heather and moor
pirroueting to finish your dance
no audience to approve
a fatefull, longing romance.
you dance above
only the clouds

beauty, blessing, creation, earth, environment, inspirational, mountains,
As I stood on the mountain
and gazed at the valley below.
I envisioned a healing nothing
like I had ever known.
My soul soared with the hawk as
it flew so effortlessly by.
Leaving me light and unguarded
so this vision could touch my life.
I seen with the spirits eyes, a day
of discovery that would touch time.
Love and laughter filled the air as
our world returned to peaceful care.
Rivers flowed so sparkling clean and
the earth our mother was again pristine.
The air was light and filled with life
every star could be seen and shown so
No more sorrow, no more pain, only
the truth, the love, the life, was what

I entered a village in Algonquin park
as dusk approached the tattered edges of dark.
And fell in love with the bucolic setting
all except for the mosquito’s blood letting.
The pine smell was redolent riding each breeze
carrying halcyon memories of trees.
And for a fugacious moment I felt lost
amidst the penumbra where I weighed the cost.
I could find a safe inglenook or camp out
a vestigial whiff of pie gave me doubt.
And taking that as a harbinger of treats
to come I headed to a lodge with grass streets.
My ephemeral connection with the Earth
somehow gave my sempiternal soul rebirth.
For I felt rejuvenated young at heart
and with each footstep felt my tensions depart.

family, life, love, mother
From the seed divided,
to exist in a sea,
what is delicate life.
Until thrust into the light
screaming in shock,
forced to inhale first
breath of life,
a new comforting sea,
a beautiful sight,
blurred and unfocused,
stares into the memorized face
as gentle hands
impress, warm, caress,
soft textured folds.
warm the face,
to soothing vibrations,
inhaling wonderful fragrances,
yet the same,
from first division,
the bond of life.

I know we are supposed to love them
all creatures great and small
I know God had a reason
when he created those that crawl
even those that creep and flit
are part of a master plan
filling every earthly niche
in air, in water, on land
but Lord in your mighty scheme
please tell me in what mood
as you perused your work
and saw that it was good
inspected every nook and cranny
touched every leaf and twig
prompted you without a glance
to invent the pesky earwig.

BIO MODIFIED - SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN
Being courteous, sentimental, compassionate, helpful to others
I love Jesus, Southern Gospel Music, and Family
It is my plan to buy a new car, travel, and be on my own
Blessed to feel content, at peace, and filled with joy
My fear is not being ambulatory, losing my eyesight and being bedridden
Meet President Trump, restore late model cars, and sing bass in a gospel quartet
I am a resident of the great State of Georgia, one of the original 13 colonies

Remember when we walked across the field
Leaves of autumn crunching beneath our feet
The color of the trees was what appealed
Maybe to be alone, our love complete
Those red and yellow leaves seen were replete
Holding hands in anticipation then
Once behind the growth hidden in the glen
Your kiss 'pon my lips set dogwoods ablaze
Long as memory holds visit again
When autumn's angular sun shines its rays

Theme: Nature combined with human nature
by Janet Bingham |
beauty, blessing, desire, encouraging, environment, innocence, inspirational love,
I watch the clouds as they pass by.
They spread a mist across the sky;
and sometimes for an hour or two
they float within a sea of blue
like castles shaped a way up high,
their forms dissolve and seem to die.
Upon my back for an hour or two
I watch them grow to something new.
Veiled in lace they stretch their hands
and seem to wed in other lands.
They look down from eternity
on all that we may hope to be.
Clouds have a strange world in the sky
that outlasts even you and I.
The restless world that they embrace
moves on like us in constant pace.
They toss and turn within a storm.
Each day we live they are reborn.

High Vibrations are imperative combined and intertwined with unconditional love for everything and every human on earth.
In manifesting wants, needs, and desires one must be extremely specific and on point in every manner and aspect of height and girth.
Unconditional love is the prime element along with a positive mindset in harmony of heart in any situation.
A continuous positive mental attitude will propel one and draw one into the magnetized opportunities using a higher state of intuition.

It dropped white suddenly,
The empty air embraced it;
With the recognition
In the quiet
It would seem forever.
The birds knew.
We counted thirteen
In the closest tree.
They seemed to dance
With the restless joy
That what we think of
As the beginning,
Always comes in the middle.

beauty, emotions, environment, february, humanity, imagination, lost love,
The muse of a dreamy gaze,
The memory of a mutual moment,
Heightened affection and excitement,
An intake of breath for more
The expansion of the stars
In a stretch of sky above the world,
A tree that casts the wanting shade
That forms its body in the day
For love to birth under its branches—
Confessions uttered and deeds done
A freshness wafting into the nostrils
Stretching beyond the tallest branch
Clouds parting with the wind's guidance
Revealing the mighty faces of the heavens

Bright colored petals,
All shapes and sizes,

These beings live wild
Doing as they please.
They live and die
All of nature.
Breathe their scent;
They love the

christian, creation, environment, feelings, love, rose, wisdom,
The rose that didn't
know herself a thing
of perennial beauty –
of vibrant color,
entrancing scent –
study of bouquets,
of sentimental verses,
of flawless princesses
and jealous witch's
curses – a rose who
never grew to cherish
the blossoming of gifted
never looked more deeply
beyond the shallow face
of a painful moment's dark
crystal, into the sacred heart
of a bejeweled core –
all life are forms of
buds and blossoms –
learning the husbandry
each petal spent
a fertile encore
death a heartfelt finale
for tears and then applause
by Linda Alice Fowler |
creation, environment, flower, garden, god, nature,
Glossy, heart-shaped leaves of galax
ringed ‘round the lingering lilacs
that played across the garden gate,
bent now – bowed from foliage’ weight.
Wild roses replace Venus et fleur
having a sweet natural alure.
Chicory and Madonna lily
grow here and there, and willy-nilly.
Bachelor buttons and blue bonnets
clothe the field with unsung sonnets.
Coreopsis and black-eyed Susans
frolic with their rambunctious cousins.
Of all the flowers God has wrought
I love the ones that were last thought.
Haphazard flair of wild flowers
bestow joy with dewy showers.

An abode of peace
A treasure of empire
A haven of tranquility
A kingdom of treasures
An oasis of modern empire
A space of warmth greeting
A den of hospitable people
A neoclassical form of politics
A gateway to beyond comports
An avenue of understanding
An environment of treasures

My new home is in a new country.
I know very little of the language and culture.
Memories of my old country will be in my heart forever
The love of my old country will always remain.
I leave for a better life and new opportunities
Hoping to make a bright future for me and my family.

what is very much important today is nothing,
nothing is important as this huge world
in a small handing of man is messed with.
What is good?
My language, my culture,my now
and above all my people.
Friendship is a bridge that can over flood prompting you to divert to another way,
Love a best sword you have against you.
What is good? Politics is just an art of depriving good
good from others towards the self.
Religion is the social science of viewing oneself as holier
and fit for heaven than that which you know not of.
Brotherhood is yet another complicated phenomenon.
What is Good?

They see strengths
Not the limitations
These are people who will make you proud of yourself
They will tell you why you’re special
Trust you to the point you have to answer their expectations
They make you better than you normally are
You can be proud of yourself
They respect you
For what you’ve done
Where you’ve come from
They see what you’ve experienced something real
Respect you for your courage
They live by their rules
They do not expect you to follow theirs
They are at peace to themselves
They are not proving anything to you
They are good listeners
Sincere in their interest in you
You feel important
They are available for honest
Makes you want to share yourself
