When I Am Gone

When I Am Gone short poem

When I am gone, find me in

The sunsets and twilight,
The billowing and colorful clouds,
The waxing and waning of moon,
The chirping of birds.

The mist over mountains,
The music of flowing river,
The undulation of the waves,
The cascading waterfall over rocks.

The rustle of the leaves,
The fragrance of flowers,
The fallen leaf and flower,
The cool breeze that comes to caress you.

Dewdrops reflecting the world around,
Pitter-patter of raindrops,
The beauty of weeds,
And the wonders of nature.

The solitude of life,
The soothing lullaby,
The melody of a lonely soul,
The shade of an ever giving tree.

When Weaving Stopped

When Weaving Stopped short poem

The grain of wood was nuanced for naked aggression. The groping could not find the plasma. Some non-believers were deemed insane by rust-tainted smiles of shimmering stars. Defiant was the crushed grass after caressing the moon in lonely night. The
