Cold winters tale

Cold and icy

Slippery underfoot,

White frost covering every nook,

Bites the face as you view your breath

Witnessing the steam exhale from your constricted chest,

Ice dew webs decorate the scene around,

Toes and fingers go so numb

Nose is red, cheeks feel the burn.

Winter cuts like a knife

Maybe we should all hibernate at this time

I long for home and long for warmth

Summer memories now long gone

Chilled to the bone yet still better off

Than those living rough who have no home

And have to sleep out in this

Where going to sleep every night is a risk

As they never know if they are going to wake up.

Soul trip

Travelling to her soul

Was like a journey through the jungle

Wading through the mango groves

The swamps and undergrowth

Hearing all the exotic noises

Like a kookaburra cry

And seeing all the amazing flowers

As I was passing by

It was a journey of adventure

It was a journey so amazing

And exotic trip of discovery

And of Luminescent gazing

A place of love I would not ever wish to leave

And a memory that eternally will stay with me.

Leaf dancers

Gathered leaves

They blow around is if dancing

Rustling, brown and crisp,

Like wood nymphs at a reel or jig

They signify that autumn has arrived

And winter will soon be reprised

Seasons come and go

Before my eyes

As I sit here watching leaves dance with such delight.

Stormy weather

Leaves crisp and brown rustle in the wind

I can feel the foreboding of a preternatural storm coming

I see dark clouds in the distance

And know it’s time to prepare

I see creatures on the move

Scuttling around everywhere.

The leafless branches whip in the wind

There’s speckles of rain now in the air

A chill is now reaching out only the brave or foolish will dare

Venture out into what’s to come

A storm of epic proportions

To wash away the things that are wrong

And leave a freshness in the air

It will wreak and leave such destruction

But maybe also a cause for hope

To build again from the ground up

Something that’s needed most

New beginnings, brand new start

Or will it revert back to the old ways

If it does my friend the storms will continue to come

Time and time again.,

Tar and Sands

Tar and sands destroys Canada’s land

and each year it constantly expands,

polluting the soil and environment,

make lots of wealth for the money men

and no doubt the Canadian government.

Pollution is a problem on a global scale

we need to make a stand and keep it at bay

we need to clean our acts up and start go green

and start to better protect our ecology.

 

 

 

Sea world

I am touched by the beauty of the sea,

I am in awe of the power it breathes,

I often think I am connected in ways

That I am not wise enough to see.

I am in wonder at the vastness of the sea,

Amazed by the depths that to few have seen,

Its a living organism washing over me,

The sea is a wondrous thing,

I have a connection and feel the belief,

That somehow once I was part of the sea,

Its so unforgiving

Yet is life sustaining,

There is duality in all that we see,

And in a world of impermanence

The overriding belief for me,

Is the sea will always be there for eternity

And maybe one day that’s all this planet may be,

It amazes me,

I am connected it seems,

In ways that I just don’t know,

It beckons me,

It entices me,

A fuels my dreams.

From the primordial sludge came life

Out of the primordial sludge we came

evolving through nature and growing like a stain,

on the face of this earth on which we live

exploiting, polluting and destroying it,

has anything ever as insidious crawled from the depths

of the primordial swamps of malice and malcontent

of hatred and greed and thrust head up from beneath the canopy

to squander earth’s rich resources with an appertite

so very rarely seen of the grand scope of universal creating.

This life form that is us climbed its’ way to the top of the food chain

and from that moment nothing on the beautiful earth would be the same

though nature and creation lived in harmony

along came man like a virulent contagious disease

building villages, then towns, then cities,

showing other species habitats it destroyed no pity

survival of the fittest and the strongest and most powerful is mans refrain

oblivious to how man lives being totally unsustainable and insane

and as I sit here thinking of the power man has created

the scars and damage of which any healing will be belated

I cant help wondering how long it will be

until it’s own self extinction and when these great monoliths they built

will lay dormant quiet and hidden beneath trees and weeds

until they finally crumble back into the soil from whence they come

and man will no longer be capable of causing more dirty slums

that harm this planet and beg the question how can we be proud of what we have done

we blighted paradise, this Garden of Eden, we threw away everything

and one day we will be gone and the world will be a better place without us hear

creating destruction, pollution, extinction, corruption, war and fear.

The huntsmen

Time for the hunt

And the selfish runts

Born into privilege

Well you can do one

Charging across fields

With you dogs

While you’re on horseback

Foxes and deers have no chance to fight back

So that’s why we’re here to help defend them

And to give back to nature a happy ending

‘All creatures large and small the Lord God loves them all’,

So we won’t shirk from stopping you

Simply by standing tall.
