Drifting Woods

Sometimes I drift away

crossing the time limits

following the rivers’ way

or climbing the higher summits

Happily with the birds I fly

or join the wolves while they cry

Sometimes I like to be the sun

sole and aloof from everyone

The moon is my best friend at times

for I like to be with the loved ones of mine

Occasionally like a pond of water

I sit uninterested, whatever the matter

Sometimes I am the waterfall

spraying drops of happiness on one and all

I can be as gentle as the winter sun

or a bolt of lightning as the tempers run

Do not try to understand

for I am as unpredictable as I am told

Do not try to stretch your hand

for drifting clouds you cannot hold….

A Walk In The Woods

A Walk In The Woods short poem

A walk in the woods. Thunder in the distance. Lighting dancing, edging dark clouds. Soft rain thru the pines. Boughs dripping in the pond. Birds sounding bird talk. Many languages to be heard. Frogs in the pond announcing their attendance.


Drifting short poem

Do you ever feel like your drifting alone in an empty place not really moving towards any goal or any place. It pulls on your soul and is always on your mind it prevents you from moving forward and slowly

Into The Woods

Into The Woods prose poem

She went into the woods, Running till she breathed her last… She was thunderstruck and horrified to the core!!! Like she was hiding from the demons which abode in her She was distressed; thinking about what the future beheld for

Woods And Trees

Woods And Trees long poem

In late Spring when heros scream A source of sophistication from faint misery Inside the thwart hidden silence of the pivotal solace of my mind With mind blowing excursion toward the legally blind inside Woods in growing habitation & silence
