The Lakes Have Eyes

The Lakes Have Eyes

Ferrari nails dug into Dogwood bark as August curled in,

And eyes mirrored the lake beyond the petals carried with a cooling wind.

Her favorite spot: atop a mica wall,

We used to go; we used to sit there and laugh; we thought we’d fall.

 

There was only one day, prior to autumn before the earth cooled

When the sky grew stressed and pelted us with rain, i...

The trials

The valley of the light equal shadow of truth an love through the darkest moment   
Fear is a great divider and the greatest enemy are through fear of our mind and body 
Let rain cleanse the darkness through the tear of joy and laughter and love  
The fear of love is the admitting to your heart calling   
The love  of fear teaches us to be careful and open-minded to are surrounding through 5 s...

Sylvan Hope

tones of wooded sprouting leaves
sing the measure of the trees

they festive lift, and rustle, clap,
or silent sway, filled with sap

gorged and sated, a jewel they glow
the color of the sign to go

full of chlorophyll, the grass
screams of life as through stained-glass

filling up with greenhouse gas
while oxygen to us they pass

surrounding us with vital health
vegetation is eart...

friends

friends are indeed the notes to lifes song

they are more than that though

they are laughs

 

they are a shoulder to cry on

they are the ones that understand

no matter what they are there

 

they are there when you feel low

they are there when no one else is

they are the ones that hurt the most 

when they are angery 

you feel it hardest

when they are sad

My one day friend, Mark

  To Liverpool

By: Ali Taha Alnobani
On Vernon street
Off Dale street
I sat near the sidewalk
At the edge
Like a broken bridge
People were passing
With their robot walking
Sea gulls felt my pain
Also did the rain
And my one day friend Mark
Who heard the voice of gulls in my heart
And my desire to start
His frien...

How Are You, My Friend?

 

It happens very often

When someone on another side of the Earth

Suddenly stops your crazy race

Asking such a simple question:

How are you, my friend?

Instantly it becomes warmer

Hearing those kind words

And a series of depressing days

Breaks into the sunny rays.

A happy smile creeps up your face,

Everyone you would like to embrace.

You were almo...

S.O.S.

 

Trees with dark green leaves

Pock-mark the urban landscape

Like beauteous sores.  Oases

In an otherwise unblemished bleakness

 

Out of place in their naturalness

Rooted in the brown earth

Amid the artificially stunted grass

With an innocent hedge there misplaced.

 

Trees casting their shadow

Providing shade from the sunlight

That gives them their strength and colour

A contrast heig...
