MOTHER NATURE


red ocean

Nature takes its path,
removing the trash.
Enough humans for now.
So, take a final bow.
Let Mother Nature work to restore
the earth to what it was before.

A FUTURE ALL TOO NEAR


where is everyone? by travisanderson


What might the future hold?
Buildings of concrete and stone.
Travel by flying cars.
Trees of green foam.
Sunlight only a reflection.
Lighted sabers for protection.
A future hard to bear,
A future all too near.

WE’LL SHINE AGAIN



The stars shine each night
to ease our combined fright.
They wait for us to shine.
So, please do not pine.
We’ll make it through this hell
to ring the nightly bell.

SILVER LINING

This is just a bump in the road.
Life can deliver us a toad.
But we must keep our hope intact.
We know this as a well-known fact,
“Every cloud has a silver lining.”
I refuse to hear any more whining.

THE DEAD DANCE

THE DEAD GAME 





The party at Diane's house was taking a turn to the supernatural. It offered a medley of vampires, human vampires, and humans.


     After the meeting, Todd led Linda to a quiet corner. “Please return to the dance floor with me.”

     As she spun around the room with Todd, Linda searched for the other human vampires from Oasis. If they were on Todd’s side, then where were they? She wasn’t going to say anything to him about them; he had enough to worry about without her raising additional concerns. And what was a human vampire, anyway? Were they any better than regular vampires? According to Todd, human vampires were still human.
      Tired of worrying about the town and its strange inhabitants, Linda said to Todd, “For just a moment
I’d like to believe that this evening is magical and beautiful— all that I’d imagined for tonight.” She leaned her head against his shoulder and sighed.

TAUNTING

Your reflection taunts you
In shades of green and black.
Your thoughts and actions
From you and right back.

SILENT FEET

SILENT FEET

They walk on silent feet
through the forest so deep.
I must keep moving my feet
without stopping to sleep.

The howling wind plays their song
of bloody deaths for us all.
They’re not for this place for long.
They wait for the town to fall.

They are surrounding me.
I can’t outrun their reach.
Somehow I must get free
and make it to the beach.

The ground is opening.
Sadly I know for whom.
I’m falling in a hole
that will soon be my tomb.
