"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]


Green

As emeralds  

Grass seen thru a lens


Light

Golden beams bathe with fyre 

Grass seen thru a lens


Water

Sweet as honey

Grass seen thru a lens


Morning

New day restored

Grass seen thru a lens


Grass seen thru a lens

Dew on grass bathed in gold

Grass seen thru a lens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Purple

Deep as aymethist

Gems seen thru a lens


Sunlight

The skyes fyre pale in early morn’

Gems seen thru a lens


Droplet

The earths light drizzle upward

Gems seen thru a lens


Leaves

The ground upholding these

Gems seen thru a lens


Gems seen thru a lens

A single jam bloom

Gems seen thru a lens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brown

Naked arms ever streching to be free

Strength seen thru a lens


Skye

Hidden by many pines

Strength seen thru a lens


Soil

Black earth giving lyfe

Strength seen thru a lens


Strength seen thru a lens

Tree branches under dew

Strength seen thru a lens


Spiral

Liquid radiating outward

Fern seen thru a lens


Peace

Ever swirling inwards

Fern seen thru a lens


Snowflake

Is the best way to describe this

Fern seen thru a lens


Fern seen thru a lens

A young fiddlehead burdened with droplets

Fern seen thru a lens

 

 

 

Wilds

Ferocity softened by this display of dew

Nature seen thru a lens


Freedom

Bees buzzing amongst bubbles of water in air

Nature seen thru a lens


Morning

Sends beauty incarnate in the water

Nature seen thru a lens


Nature seen thru a lens

plants of all kinds as on under dew

Nature seen thru a lens

how odd. this is the first real poem i wrote. huh, i hated poems so deeply at the time.

it feels almost like digging up an old book and finding it horribly dusty.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Wow, I love the repetition and cadence and details of this poem (I know, I sound like an English teacher, but still...)
