Tainted aura swells in sky
While a bitter breeze howls,
Caressing temper of the night
And rage of winter's rise.
Frenzied chills sweep the land
Icy fingers drumming
Pounding through the earth.
Swift, the creatures cower
Away from the careless reign
Bellows of the storm demand
With fall of icy drops,
That all willows sway and dance
And welcome Winter with bare branches.
Craters dotting weathered earth
Hollowed by the thrumming rain.
Clouds retreat in newborn lull
And clear to open sky.
Grey and weak, the storm submits
With whistling windy sigh.
Quiet pattering, gentle
Slowing with each drop,
... Until the sky --
Monarch of Sun
Runs out of tears
And let forgiving rays
Shine once more.
The VulturesIn cheerless gloom amid winters sky,
A pair of thieves hurry by.
On tilted wings they are disguised
With grey plumage, against grey skies.
Draped in cloaks of darkened feathers,
Reflecting a heart of purest black.
Questing on the trail of death
Scavengers waiting to attack.
Silent as they beat their wings,
To hear the struggles of the stranded beast.
Shrill cries of triumph fill the air,
For this promises to be a filling feast!
Calculating eyes, intent with greed,
Peer down with a hungry stare.
The wicked figures circle round,
Relishing their victims despair.
As the dying creature shudders and draws
Its last wheezing breath,
The frenzied fiends swoop down upon it,
Their cruel beaks tearing flesh.
They retreat at last, their drab cloaks stained,
Mottled with crimson from head to claw.
The hunch-backed villains of the plains
Dissolve into darkness once more.
The Magic of DawnFiery hand engulfs
Awakening earthen floor:
Sweet dawn has arrived.
Sweet birds trill with joy,
Sounds like whispery honey...
A song-filled sunrise.
Shadows cast away,
Clearing the air with sun rays,
Unveiling the sky.
Gentle blush of pink
Paint the world with pastel inks,
Raising warmth and peacefulness --
The magic of dawn.
Kiriban for Rachy :DBella,
Here I stand beneath the stars
The ones outside your window.
Though I lament from afar,
It is those same stars you see.
Are you looking out into the sky?
Weeping to the night?
I cant stand to see you cry,
Your tears linger with me.
Keep waiting by your windowside,
I promise Ill return.
For with you my stony heart abides,
And in your hand, its key.
I long to hear your voice again;
I wonder: can you hear mine?
Though I turned away and left, I send
My love, my sorrow, my pain.
Here I sit beside my bed,
Restless, hand pressed to glass.
Memories blinking through my head,
Of the topaz in your gaze.
Stars flicker out of view,
As a single tear spills
Glistening in darkness hue
From the pain of your last words.
I will never leave this windowside,
Searching the horizon for your smile,
Just one glimpse of where you hide,
To see you just once again.
How you could just fade away,
As if you were never there?
But know that you will always
Own my heart.
ButterflyForlorn upon contrary winds
Riding on a thread of blue
Always one zephyr closer
To the distance
Where the sun sets
And the peaks of mountains rise
The frenzied flurry
To escape from turmoil
From wilder gales
Returning to the horizon
Where the moon rises
And the snow darkens
A simple rage
A sudden surge
A blur of motion
A graceful arch
Destined for clear skies
The relief of warm haze
Descend from scarlet sky
Away from the settling dawn
Amidst the blooms and buds
Imprinting soft petals
To bask in wisps of sun
Another careless day
Lurking By You Side - Ch. 3Mickey stared intently into the orb and gasped at what he saw.
Something big and strong was sending ripples through the Shrukai Forest.
And it was heading for Hollow Bastion!
There goes another barrier
Selphie was on her knees, her pale face tear-streaked.
He must have dropped it by mistake, she told herself.
It didnt convince her in the least.
Riku had obviously dropped it on purpose.
But why? Selphie asked to no-one in particular.
She wiped the last of her tears away and began to gather the bits of glass carefully in one hand.
She had hoped that Riku would keep it in his room and cherish it forever and ever!
After all, it wasnt just a gift; it was a gift from her, Selphie.
Didnt he like the gift?
Was it too girly?
You have to impress him, Selphie.
As Minnies voice revolved in her head, an idea struck her.
Such a powerful idea it was, it made her drop all the glass in her fist.
Lurking By Your Side - Ch. 2Okay, Ill see you tonight, Minnie!
Selphie exited the room, satisfied with her heart-to-heart chat with the Queen.
Minnie was one of her best friends now, who she told secrets to and listened to advice from.
Just a minute ago, Selphie had been discussing her crush on Riku.
Minnie had told her that she would have to impress him and stop being so flirtatious.
This was going to be a hard task.
Selphie waved goodbye to Queen Minnie and flounced away, down the corridor.
She rounded the corner.
And her jaw dropped open.
Tiny bits of glass were strewn across the marble floor and Selphie knew instantly where they came from.
The glass rose that she gave to Riku.
Selphie could feel her heart being shattered into little pieces and joining the glass on the floor.
LIFT OFF! Chips voice shrieked over the walkie-talkie installed into the Gummi Ship.
The ship whirred to life and blasted off into space, leaving a cloud of dust and ashes behind it.
Lurking By Your Side - Ch. 1A consistent tapping sound echoed around the empty corridor.
Empty, that is, except for an imposing figure making his way down the hallway.
His leather boots clicked against the dazzling white marble floor, accompanied by the swishing sound from the black and red cape draped over his broad shoulders.
His once startling aqua eyes were now almost hollow with the pain and grief he had had to overcome in his short life. Even so, there was wisdom in them as if those eyes held all the knowledge there was.
The young mans face was etched with scars from previous battles, where he had won and lost. The long gash curving from his lip to his forehead was an especially distinct scar one that hed obtained from a fight with thieving Heartless not so long ago.
Slightly spiky blue hair hung down to his shoulder, brushing against his neck, which was also covered with countless wounds.
His journey through the years since childhood had been rough but here he was today, standing tall at
GeminiEvery step along the path
Ill be walking right beside you
Sharing thoughts and laughter
As your journey continues.
Youll never be alone.
If you seek a helping hand
Ill be there to get you off the ground
Through thick and thin
Ill be with you all whole year round.
Youll never be alone.
Dont need to say a word
I can hear you loud and clear
Even if youre far away
Ill be standing here.
Youll never be alone.
UntitledelititnUthe earth was a mug of dirt and water
until milk came from the sky
we drink until standing in
an empty silo.
LizardShe still sheds her skin in daylight,
reforming the past:
just how her cold-blooded species would like it.
TorchesThree trees on the street
I follow on my way each morning
Like Autumn candles held aloft
In defiant vermillion splendor...
Burn bright, my signposts,
Waymarkers in the wheel of my year:
As late November's humors and freezing mists
Surround the bare bones of Autumn Past,
Hold the darkness at bay a little longer
'Til the solstice turns us sunward again.
Love At First SightShrouded in a thin mist,
He stares at me eye level.
I'd only ever seen him from below,
But now I am sky high,
Mesmerized by his breathtaking beauty
Emerging softly from the clouds.
His familiar face brings me peace
As I glide past him in the darkness,
Onward to my destination.
I may never see him this way again,
So I soak in the view,
Memorize his emitting curves of light,
And rest easy as he descends below the horizon once again.
CreekMy feet find
the worn steps
where our feet
have found footing many times before
As I walk down
I become surrounded
hiding me from our gray society
Down at the bottom
a small stream runs
faster than a bullet
and deep enough to swim
Frogs jump away
into the dark water
darting fast and crazily
so I can't see the lovely waters deep
We built a dock down here
so sound and sturdy
so I could sit and watch
nature's glorious aquarium
The water does a crazy thing
and heals my wounds within
while I just sit and smile
watching all the tadpoles learn to swim
StarlightI see the stars listening
There are clouds shaving
Off smoky lumps of white;
Of bright fire
Tears pool down
From their abodes;
Tiny bursts of stars
In gleaming swirling tempests
I am holding its milky eye
In a globe
Curled up like a
Short claws caressing
Of the Night.
The scent of green tea
Heady and whimsical
Plays near Night's open arms
Like a tune from a fiddle
And stars compact
Near Night's vision
Releasing their energy
To the strokes of her
In the tenuous seams
--the little wolf howled
at the night sky,
eyes wide open, and wondered,
how can the moon change shape?
his elder brother replied,
with a snort
and a spiteful gaze
at the crescent above:
it feeds on the souls of stars
it leaves us no scraps
and it surrenders them
to the abyss above
in the form of
just to gorge on more
Desert LifeArid heat permeates the air
broken on rare, savored occasions
by a subtle cool wind which promises
more than it delivers,
barely enough to quench a thirst,
like a single drop of morning dew
midst the forlorn desert.
Watching the landscape pass
indistinguishable, time may be rendered
non-existent, the only changes
I am taken back to a life
in bygone ages, the visions
move through my mind ,
a brutal struggle for life,
an unexpected laissez-faire attitude,
dancing women in long skirts
and garland stockings,
women on a quest to redefine themselves,
men seeking riches, lost in a world
of chance, skin, and booze.
Slowly a strange beauty rises
from the deceptive bareness
for life still thrives in its own quiet way
in inconceivable places.
It speaks an old language
and it smells of dusty earth,
I can almost hear the echoes
of pounding harmers and taste
the scent of sweat and lingering decay
where life and death are scarcely
separated, and one easily becomes
Dear Crescent MoonWhy do you hide your sideways smile
Behind the darkened flock?
Casting hope to every mile,
For each shadowed tree and rock?
All the ones below your might
Wish upon your friends.
The countless dreams conjured at night-
Your departure brings their end.
You are the door between night and day
Royalty of the dark.
Crescent moon, don't shy away
'Til you hear the call of the lark.
