A Tribute To Nature


Moon o moon
I ate my shame
When i saw your scars
You sang a story
Of a ray kissing your bruises
As a token left the scars
You still cry
And search for her
Travelling the sky
All day and night
I know you are broken from inside

Sun dearest sun
I drank my anger
When i smelled in your lullaby
A rain falling on you
Dying for you
And your ashes were never seen
Beneath your orange
She still makes you blue

Ocean my love
I deserted my unrest
As i saw you closely
Hiding your salt
The way she healed and left
You still scream in the tides
Raise up high your arms
And morning sees you calm

Snow heavenly snow
I burnt my coldness
When i saw you lying dead
You seemed blue
Like the frozen blood
But the grudges you hold
Describe the avalanche

Sky my closest sky
I fell in love with my curses
Coz i saw you stagnant up there
Watching others fly
In your arms
And you are quiet
With nowhere to go
I know why you hide
Beneath the clouds
You draw the smoky curtains
And alone you cry
I know now why you hide

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
