FOREST STORIES

I last wrote about our five quite some time back,

a time when, for each of them, you and I (and mostly you)

still weighed in and sparred, day on day, in any cause,

on standby should they slip or fall – though close at hand is, perhaps,

the better way to say it, the gentle way to convey a sense of

our being technically unseen, absent, yet able to be found

by one or two, no more th...

Good Days

God bless the good days.
Days a smile is no stranger to your face. 
Days your favorite songs play, and you sing along. 
Days faith is restored in humanity. 
Days sunshine and fresh air makes life seem fair.
Days you feel the gentle touch of love. 

Good days will see you through tough days, 
down days,
diseased days,
bitter days that never seem to end, 
days you have no friends, 
days ...

I See The Nature

I see the blue skies, where the sun lies.

I see old oak trees, leaves swaying in the breeze.

I see people talking to their friends,

whilst cars zoom off around the bends.

I see beautiful heathers,

which are as light as feathers.

How wonderful nature is,

when I leave, it is the nature I will miss.

Felt Feel

Felt Feel

I feel the King of my world

Alone as on a glacier

With only Nature as my friend

The rest of them ignore me

For this is what they do

When one is different

And a King all powerful

It’s fine though I ignore them

Cleveland Cold

The Cleveland cold envelops me like cellophane,

Holding me as tight as a rigor mortis grip,

It clenches at my joints,

Constricting my movement not unlike a python,

Walking feels sluggish,

Lifting my arms is akin to moving through clay,

I revel in the uneasiness of it all,

Joy

Splattered across my face,

Despite all of the kinks the cold brings out,

A childlike wonder s...

AND ONE DAY - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS

entry picture

And one day,

the sun stopped,

the rain stopped falling,

the flowers didn't look high,

the sky emptied of stars,

then a tear dripped

from the heart and became our breath.

We need a sacred tear,

before the fall...

second wind

My vitality feels resuscitated with every breathe we share

two halves of a heart

you are the oxygen that pumps, vestibule, pair of consonance heartbeats

bounce off the walls.

we jump up and down hand in hand

your touch warms through and lights a fire inside and around

sound mind when your whisper incites a riot

the night is charged, god particles in the air.

Giraffe

I heard that Giraffes have been protected from being slaughtered for their body parts for the first time this week....So a celebratory poem

 

It's Wonderful to have 

A long neck

It reaches up

To the sky

I can nibble leaves 

On treetops

And smile at

Birds

As they

Fly by

It's just

Great 

Having this

Long neck

I can see

For Miles around

YOU CAME IN TO THIS WORLD: ALEXIS KARPOUZOS

entry picture

You came in to this world

with enough light to find

your way out of the dark,

enough kindness to save a soul,

enough love to shift a planet.

Don't worry, you are enquipped

with all you could ever need.

Look with in,

you are drenched in magic.

Nature

The prettiest pictures of beauty are formed by nature's own.

Look out for it is free and always alone.

We may see behind a sky that's blue and bold

Shines a glorious globe of greatest gold,

And the wind which swirls in a wavy path

Blows the tears of heaven to create a shallow nature's bath.

And by vast flying vapours various moulds are made,

Slowly travel throughout the light ...

Lost Meanings

entry picture

Hearing that words from Natural history such as Acorn and Conker are now lost on the latest generation got me thinking...

 

When web was a silky spider's thread

When online was your school shirt

Fixed on with a peg

When a tablet was something 

You took, when ill

Nothing more

But a type of pill

When mouse was

Something chased

By a cat

OK, I'm going

Too far bac...

Seasonal Variations

entry picture

The changing colour of the seasons

Can life get any better than this?

Reflecting through all the reasons

Of why we came to exist

The midlife comparisons of autumn

As we're reaping our rewards

Fear of the chill in winter

Will we survive old age

Or be ignored?

As we look back to

The growth of spring

When all was so fresh 

And new

To the warmth and heat

That ...

HELL, NO!

Two apes having a head-to-head:

"It's friggin' absurd!" one of them said,

"Eight million species inhabit this earth,

Balancing nature and proving their worth;

But look at those creatures that are called 'man':

Ruining our planet as fast as they can;

They've polluted our air and poisoned the seas;

Their revolting habits cause death by disease!

Tranquility

Tranquility in your presents

doves pecking as our kiss is tending

lips lock our mind in a spell, as the doves sing their song, letters spelling in the air.

clouds draw me close for a better look

fractals in the nooks, lump to lump, baby rainbows extend their hand and shake with glee

telling my lover she is the best mother to be

 

She see's the beauty in my beastial nature, cal...

What I learnt from a tree

entry picture

It just stood there

Happy to simply be

Sometimes a little gentle sway

Of it's skinny bark

In the breeze

Teasing it's leaves a bit

And when it was bare

It was still just ...there

Standing proud

Putting up with it all

Reminding me 

To do the same

Those determined little buds

Packed full of potential

Showing how essential

It is to live in hope

Of a new ...

soul mates

Let's let our thoughts tango and let our souls mate

my heart on my sleeve, on display

she is my armor, forever with fervor

worth the search for, pain couldn't hurt more

Her radiance blazes, visually a spectacle

her calming presence.

In essence, my mind linger.

Drift off to the cosmos. to a place where space and time coincide

I see her constellation and engage, warp drive

Out the Door Medicine

Out the Door Medicine

First goldfinch of the season flushed 

from unmown grass 

along with other finches sparrows

and chipping chickadees 

southwest they mixed 

ones with steady quick beat 

and the gold with her push and pause 

push and pause 

as though she were giving birth to flight 

 

and the berries not black

Drawn together


Drawn together, by god's hand
canvas weathered, with black clouds on foreign land
placed on parchment in the darkness
the line is thin from me to you, each other's mind paint the others dreamscape

drawn to you, the flip book of life brings us ever closer as every moment pass
each page bookmarked and in immediate view, I pray always my spine hold from the load placed on you
on the margin ...

Walls fall

Seismic vibes reach through the faults

the connection pulls us together collectively

As we embrace, we look for a way to drown out our doubts and fears

 

Walls fall, curled up under the table, her past remains the same

as for her future i can save her, let us recover

what was lost to damage.

 

Sift through the rubble for our gems and jewels, trinkets and fuel

A natural concert

Surrounded by summer verdancy,

the sweet smell of the linden tree

and the deciduous arboreal presence

dining on the twilight sun.

The bright notes of the songstress

soothe my ears and calm my nerves,

that mambo rhythm cradles me

while I dream of glorious dances.

The floating melody is in full flight

and transcends the corporeal

to rise above the out reaching soul

i am as a sapling in the shadow of a hundred year oak
try not to breathe, not to stir
i wish to remain unnoticed at the edge of your meadow
here in my solitude
i dare not disturb this perfect silence
inexplicable and deeper than night
nothing casting it
a black shadow wavers in the bright sunlight
it covers the the meadow floor
pulling at my curiosity I am lost in it's mystery

Morning calm

entry picture

A world of desperation. 

The face and the faceless. 

Indescribable yet on the tip of my tongue.

Impecability holds the key to power.

I stare out over the city on my park bench throne.

The morning hours calm my mind. 

Crows speak in their own tongue. 

I reflect on a night of dreaming. 

The number is 4. 

Time to let go of what I can no longer carry. 

My saving grace is ...

Father

entry picture

You ask if I believe in God...
How can I not?

To deny my Father
means I leave my existence
to some 30 year old predator
who impregnated a girl half his age
and left her to raise their child
in the wilderness, among wolves 
that feed on loneliness and despair.

Without my Father, I would never know
that after suffering comes deliverance,
pain leads to compassion,
forgiveness breaks b...

Twisted Love

entry picture

Love once bloomed 
like a fragrant flower
in eternal spring.

Through years of 
torrential summer tears, 
then droughts,

the scent faded.

All that seemingly remains
are scorched petals that drop 
like dead leaves in fall.

But, far beneath 
the frozen surface, 
intertwined roots run deep...

Making our twisted love 
hardy, to weather the 
toughest seasons.

Nature's Banquet

Nature’s Banquet

 

I am the humble Wildebeest -

Mother Natures moving feast.

My mother warned “Don’t wander off

or you’ll end up a Lion’s scoff”.

Some folk call me a Gnu,

I’ve heard it all, there’s nothing new

In puns that you may decide to frame

around this inauspicious name.

 

I guess I’ll never have a life

of family bliss with kids and wife,

cause every da...

Fleeting persistence

entry picture

She was the one constant throughout his life

His endless reference to existence

From infancy she reflected him back at him

She was his world, the very reason he lived

 

She gave birth to him, ejaculating him into the air

For the first time he felt separation from her wet womb

But their connection was permanent

She was as much he, as he was him

 

Her brilliance dazzled...

Close to the Ground

entry picture

I choke on the word spirituality.

Not so much on the reality

but the sometimes solitary focus

on the ethereal, mystical, and utterly

invisible. I lose my way in the mist.

My spirit hums closer

to the ground, often emerges

with mud on its face. It scrounges

truth among the mushrooms and

lichen. Peels off labels from

discarded tin cans, and there among

the roaches an...

Wild Flowers

In the blue-green meadow

of my silent soul, 

scorpion grass - 

dormant for decades,

now grows wild and free, 

sustaining me, 

spreading love

The Protectors

THE PROTECTORS

They had stood over me since my birth

Watching, Protecting

Heads bowed in respectful silence

Friends who gave so much

Yet asked for nothing

 

I grew up sheltered by their love

Safe in their strength

Knowing that one day

I too would stand high

And bask in the light of life

 

Eventually they fell

One by one

Giving more light each time

screaming that mountain animals cradle grand
blending yourself in awe don't expect to break up

Living in Harmony

entry picture

thick clouds filled the head cavity
blocked the view from clear eyes
the curtain hesitated to confine the soul
restless should not be bound by conscience

the thunder shook the heart
deafness of true self honesty
should the words be said rudely
power desire is only worldly

raindrops wet the burning body of the earth
increasingly wet the embankment of will
anger submerged by cold water

morning brings the scent of rain last night
wet ground refresh the new morning
conscience hopes the days are no longer dark
surrendering to the storm must pass

wet green longing natural life
in silence the mood is pleasing

sunny sun slowly warms the earth
birds chirping with the spirit of life

Writer's Block

When you get writer's block
go for a walk

find a friend 
have a talk

blow bubbles
spin a top

count stars
watch birds flock

whatever you do 

don't stare 
at a blank page

as the clock
goes tick-tock.
