August’s End

Our long summer days are drawing to a close, The adventures are changing unbidden. A nightingale speaks of change upon this cooling earth, And new roots have begun to unwind. Let us thank this good earth that has taken us in, And reverence the gifts daily given. For our lives now turn round an unseen … More August’s End

Linger Longer

Linger longer upon this field with me, That I may entreat the living world to freeze. And make within us our hearts be slow, That we may stay together always. Your hand in mine our eyes as one, Drinking in the joy of this scene. Be wistful with me as children are, When they know … More Linger Longer

Through Layered Time

Venture with me between layered time, To a place much younger than here. Where mountains spoke of the magma within, As each Valley trembled with their might. When skies were filled with trillions of pinpricks, And one waiting to destroy this chaotic balance. Where monsters roamed beneath the sun, And uncountable life interacted. -M.E. InkOwl

Growth so green of spring that’s passed, I remember you deep within my mind. Your pedals so soft and beautifully colored, Keeps my own colors from bleeding off.

Remember the Glade

In the sun browned gold of summer, Remember the green of spring. Let your mind ease with gentle breeze, As wind tossed trees speak to their kin.

Breathe Peace

Thankful For Wings

Kissed so gentle by the sun, You dance upon cornflower blue. And find within the powdered gold, That keeps our world alive and renewed. Let us take a moment and appreciate, All that you do with beating wings. Lest we forget and turn to dust, So glad am I that we met. -M.E. InkOwl

Dreamweaver come down upon this ground, That I may wake from this most colorful dream. I thought reality’s bite was too deep, As rings upon rings enfolded the sky. Rainbow hues do call me home, From which I knew not that I left. And wonder deep has gripped my soul, To make my life incomplete. … More Dreamweaver
