Leaves!

Leaves!

 Leaves

Unfurling, stretching

forth to the sun as if

to meet a new day-

new life begins

Growing, extending

filling the barren tree

with life, where winter

beat up with twigs

Delighting, producing

first blossoms, then fruit

to satisfy, where thirst-

hunger had dwelt

Protecting, sheltering

life and limb, when out

of season winds howl

birds retreat, animals shade

Anchored, to the trunk

branches alike, even aphids

find refuge. Low or high

food chain or human

Till season and reason

leave, life drains away

left to shrivel up and blow

on an Autumn wind

Yet, in their inglorious

retreat to compost

they have lived fast,

died well, left a beautiful ending

Colours to die for float away

fall to nothing it seems-

fetilizer, to nourish

next seasons-Leaves!

Are we Leaves?

 

Tumult

Tumult

Tumult
by Ch'erie de Perrot

In this world today.....

Glassy eyed Amoeba's

flapping furiously, as

a peacock in mating season,

a must have in the attention

seeking status of the world they frequent!

 

Rivers run Red, with blood of ghosts

gone and present, where once corn fields

thrived, feeding multitudes,closeby,

far and abroad.

 

Earth heaves N Yores, neath

the weight of it's oppressorsl

long since desensitized to the cries

of restoration, slowly, but surely

succumbing, fragmenting!

 

All eyes focus upon the square black object

of infernal entertainment, offering only the obvious,

 precious little of the real

reality, peril, swelling deep with the bossom

of the ground below, the sky above.

 

All life has become a drunken numbness

resigned to it's fate, acceptance of the impending,

painted with Amaranth, seeing all, yet seeing no thing

beyond hedonistic ideals, narcissistic reflections.

 

With all dreams, come nightmares,

The Alarm will always sound, in early morn

shattering the senses to the crisp reality

of frozen decisions, with no sun to thaw

or alter the course from which they stayed.

Dys-l-exia

 Dys-L-xia

Don't know if it's fuzzy
don't know if it's blurry
sometimes even
it can look quite furry

I can't look with a mindset
If I don't, I will regret
acme black hole beckons
one fallen through the net

Why won't they listen to me
Why can't they see what I see
the world is evolving in pictures not writ
So I will keep on trying, patiently

I process different
dosent mean I'm a twit
look at Einstein
He made the atom split

 

 

 

I was always here

I was Always here!

I was always here

 I was always here
never really went, anywhere!
Though at times to the dark corners
of the earth, in my minds eye, amid
conformity of others ideals!
Struggled at times to breathe
the air, I believe is still free, at

too high a price. Allowing
knockers of the world who see
a bright spark, and feel the need
to snuff it!

Let them retreat into their
own dark caverns, smelling the toxicity
of their own exalted environments...
I'd rather play in fresh air
enjoying the smell of roses, even if

it's so clich'e! Jump in puddles, dance
in the rain, fly on a cool breeze, soak
up sunrays, searing hot..At least I know
I'm Alive!

Live, love, laugh, learn
after all, I'm the only one
in this body, knowing at the
end of the day, being happy in
my own skin, is paramount!

I'm here
Always was
Never went anywhere!
