I'm thinking this can be a place to just write. Something free. Maybe a catalyst for the poems you can spend more time with. Even a place for warming up.
A place without fears and a place to love poetry and creative expression more and more

Blood from my brain percolates into my heart,
It is then that I morph into the heart,
I feel every intensity of the beat,
Every speck of tissue and liquid.

Borders Where Colors Change


Snow flakes deluge in gray glacier river.
Bark slivers in torrent quest, in spin and
Float, peeling particles into feather water;
Coma verve. More subtle than silence shroud.

Heat evaporates with conjugate bird songs in
Herd, with other heirs of present air, caresses.
"Can you see the sounds blending like gasses?
Can you find emotion in image or discover metaphor

From nothing?" A voice inside hoists mere words into poetry.
You can have your way with them, gratitude and discovery.
I want to thank you and invite us to sit at the banks and sense
Snow flakes hibernate into feather air and blend into no end.

Sounds interesting. I hope you are able to give these some focus and post them on the forum.

I found a mountain canyon in New Orleans,
And built a house for everyone to live in
(for more than moments). Immense living shared
Because we chose to love instead of judge.

Villages of emotion flood forests of insight.
Infestations of arrogance perish families.
Buried skies of fear abandon love and courage.

Waves of hearts - without shore, continue to change
Direction. Diametrical evanescent beauty laps lives.
Judgment attaches to exhale; ideals ravish essence.

Tectonic ethereal perception power leaves us distant.
We know enough. We think too much. Wind escapes
Air, sun bleeds, moon paints. We believe in desires.

Music moves in wallless womb.
We grin in pinnacle;
Forget possible, we've gone beyond.
Do not loathe my fearlessness, I have
A plan. We are unborn and deceased
Playing chess with raindrops. We are
Alien and sand, love and fear; In
Futures pasts, independent of the present.

Marr Ow

A cat I've never met sits on a couch and stares at me
She stares out the window, she looks and half breath
Purrs with oblivious kind grace. Marr ow

In the year 2529 I gazed
At teleport crafts, flutes
Played inside invisible
Speakers that followed
Me with wings. I could be
With ocean and be dirty
Or river and be unstable,
Or cup and body then spill,
Or the isolated lake canyon.
I was not afraid to be
Dirty or unstable.
Not afraid to spill away
And be isolated.

I became; I chose to:
Provide a salt home for more
Than countless lives, to
Awe both reality and unreality.
I chose to never be the same
Yet pause life through art,
the torrent and waterfall.
I chose liquid of survival,
Water particles in heart
Tissue. I chose mediation
Through every speck of lake
Canyon. I could not choose one,
For they were all a part of me.

Clouds move through us on a mountain branch.
We feel the lifeless move at this moment
There is no distance between my flesh and yours.
We shape our soul, we only live now.

I went 'wow' after a long time when I first read this, then I re-read it and see that it needs a bit of editing. 'Branch' for instance and 'can' in the second line.

This piece has a lot of potential, it would be a pity if you did not work on it.

I agree with Ravi, it's quite nice, O.

Treat People Better Than you Want To Be Treated


I love women, they have a beauty that no man
Can ever have (in my opinion). Experience love.

I think that gay people do not deserve prejuidice,
When they are legit like a straight person, Yet
It comes down to the person, actions, effect; kind-
Ness and natural spirit beauty. I was asked if gays
Should be allowed at church, I say yes, we all sin,
We all need God. We need the truth, we need faith.
It is not our place to judge! We all need so much help!
"Above all love each other, love covers a multitude of sins."


Treat people better than you want to be treated
