War Flower

seeded in battle
growing amongst the death mass
no longer in grief

blooming blooming high
veiny stem all aglitter
will outlive your fray

trusting the true gale
in her dance she instills mirth
for the joys of life

Autumn Memories

across tree-lined yards
leaves dance in colorful frocks --
distant school bell chimes

through open windows
the scent of pumpkin spice drifts --
an orange moon rises 

under charcoal skies 
rain dampens mouldering leaves --
a lone snowflake falls

Haiku 4 - flowering weed, dancing leaf, life force

at the roadside
solitary flowering weed
vision of loveliness

leaf falling from the tree
does its last dance in the air
then settles to the ground

in the crack in the concrete
the grass pushes upwards
unstoppable life force

Snow and The Pine Tree

Snow and The Pine Tree

Snowy white pine tree
beneath the palest blue sky
firmly stands waiting

for the sun to shine
as he softly kiss the snow
before letting go

time to part has come
thawing has arrived for the snow
but her touch lingers

her memory lives
in the heart of the pine tree
winter world of love

sweet and gentle snow
slowly melts under the sun
her fingers slipping

its time for the spring
to dance with the pine tree
till she comes again

1) Summer

It opens its mouth
To exhale its burning fire
as angry dragon

2) Winter

The sky is covered
With many swollen dark clouds
that burst into rain

3) Spring

The land is ready 
to wear the pretty green dress 
and dance with the wind

4) Fall

The trees lose their hair 
and the land is dyed in brown  
with the dying leaves

a church clock

a church clock
shows the midnight hour - -
graves open

death plays 
a tune on his fiddle - -
skeletons dance 

kings and peasants
hold hands and dance in circles - -
a cock waits

Words from Rain

surrounded by dark
drops of rain dance one by one
each forming letters

words spelled out in haste
as the next covers the last
all mean the same thing

All Souls Night

All Souls Night

O the ghastly wind
Rattles the bones of the dead
Look not in mirrors

Lock your doors and hide
Spirits dance and laugh in glee
Fear their only food

Tempt your fate with treats
Trade your soul for just one bite
Bitter end tonight

Christmas Season

Leaves with specs of gold,  

Gently dance above the earth,  

The tree is now bare 

Jesus is the vine,  

We are pruned by God to grow,  

The branches bear fruit  

The Christmas season,  

A kissing mistletoe glance,  

Dancing and merry

Lonely winter land,  

Skiing with rain turned to slush,  

Tears turned to sadness

A warm sunny ray,  

A thrill that lasts to the end,  

Falling icicles      

Poem Details | by L'nass Shango |
Categories: nature, war


Leaves slippery here
I will watch my footstep then 
In their dance invite

I will not turn gold
For brown will come, old in cold
Ungrateful breezes

Manners of the young
Left much to desire today
Casting leaves to rot

Like values in trash
Thrown awayI am careful
Dancing in the wind.

 “I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination”

                     A Rambling Poet

One path finds the door
Traveled only from the heart
Through the eyes to life

Hovering about
Dragonflies of all colors
Dancing with sunshine

A mystery world
Sparkling glass dimpled with life
Guarded by cattails

Nervous chatters above behold
A strange sense of company
I watch a miracle unfold
From behind a red oak tree

I hold my breath, don’t make a sound
Slowly peeking bit by bit
Tugging, jumping and playing around
Four unaware fox kits

The wind became my enemy
My scent from it they stole
No hesitation, instantly
They scampered down their hole

Astonished, I ponder what a rare sight I had just witnessed.
The tranquility of being surrounded by huge trees envelops me as I walk around the pond’s edge
Led by a bullfrog’s ballad, I hone in on its stage location.
Startled, the frog leaps into its safe haven and disappears into thick vegetation.
The setting sun glimmers in the wake of the bullfrog, as does my reflection.
I watch until the water’s surface is smooth again.
A rustling in the brush directs my attention to a doe and her fawn wandering in search of a tender morsel.
The long shadows of dusk begin a tale of nocturnal beauty, a revelry to the nightlife to dance with a miracle world.
Content, I find myself back at the threshold of my heart.
Leaving the world that will some day surround me, a horn blaring taxi barely misses me.

Blushing Dawn

blushing soft wet dawn
droplets shimmer on green grass
heady roses smile

butterfly’s heart beats
as nature plays melody
to the dance of leaves

soft beams gently meet
the summer morning beauty
as it fades to noon

Oceans Mirror

Waves are waters wings
Soaring past the night, upright
Dissolving through time.

Rocks are waters moons,
Attracting gasps and debris,
Perpetual pose.

Shores are waters skies,
Extravagant scenes perform
As Light rays dance round.
