Lotess Minor

Lotess Minor sat and wept
amongst the burning trees that kept
his leafy bits from touching Earth
and his winding roots from finding dirt.

Now upon the stones he's set
and fretting is as much he'd get
from all the noxious smoke and ash
expelled to air from cache stash.

Ruckus was the tune of morn'
and Lotess found his rudders torn
by mean old bugs and chiggers found
'low the grass and 'neath the ground.

His leafy mitts were pinhole chewed
as winds would whip the blaze renewed
and glowing fronds would sail on air
while Lotess couldn't move from there.

His thirst had waited none too long
and upon the touch of root to wrong
he settled in against his will
and panicked as he drank his fill.

Now the terms of need would take
as Lotess sat there trapped and drank.
The pillared heat was closing soon
while Lotess gorged from nigh to noon...

The Attempted Escape

The Attempted Escape

Bolting towards the open feilds trying to elude its grasp
Running wildly past the trees attempting to resist its painful clasp
Hoping it wont capture me as I race through the night
Carelessly leaving a trail; keeping me in its line of sight
Glancing back; seeing it is still on my tail
Realizing that it would take my mind and eventually prevail
Exhausted and now staggering, I cannot run anymore
Losing my will to resist, quickly hitting the dirt floor
My mind is now invaded and my thoughts now forgone
Being dragged back with it, failing to have pressed on

HOLY HELL

TREES (Cinquain)

Folder: 
CINQUAIN

Trees

stand silently

bending, sighing crying

as icicles begin to melt the

trees.

Nature Conduit

Folder: 
Wonderful World

River, river, river
No more do I shiver
Road, road, road
Oh! I’m a good toad
Trees, trees, trees
Roots branches and twigs
Back and forth leaves
Tickle in breeze
Morning, noon, night
Joy takes flight.
Magic gear allures
Adoration, life enamours.
Nature cast spell
Radiate and swell.

THE WINDS OF TIME

Folder: 
LOVE KNOTS

The
weeping
willow
stands so
gracefully.

Looking
out
over
the
waters.

Appearing
to be
so
calm and
reserved

The winds
of
time
approaching.

Begins
to play
on her
heart-
strings.

yet
inside
she
weeps.
