...calmness fills the air

Wonder of Nature

How still the waters...

transporting silence and peace -

serenity fills the air

Clouds cover the sky,

standing strong in formation -

a sight worthy to behold

Example #1:
War Path

Fractured wanderer
leaving a tortured city,
hammocked insecurely.

Quenched of thirst for blood,
he may now respect beauty,
unappreciated 'fore.

Example #2:
Disturbing Raven

Dark clouds cloak the night;
chilly winds creak gnarled branches,
grasping as bony fingers.

Disturbed Raven squawks
at frightened children - screaming,
then laughing - they throw him treats.

Example #3:
October 31st

Ghosties and goblins
Witches, black cats and broomsticks,
All Hallows Eve comes tonight.

Children coming by
arms out calling trick or treat
Hall-o-ween ghosts and goblins.
