Autumn Poem

Posted in Nature, Poetry with tags , on September 8, 2009 by Outdoors2


Honied yellow dripping gold,

Leaf of autumn in the cold

Dancing on in crisp despair

Whirling on enchanted air

Falling silently to earthen tomb

Away from tree’s rooted arm

Perhaps the silence broken then

By hollow cries of autumn grief

Synchronized with the falling leaf


S.K.Lindeman

Had to bring this one up front

a Tree and a River

a Tree and a River
Role reversals as they grow

The need for each other is always there, Always supporting the other whether the water is brushing the roots or not. The River gives life to the Tree with it’s nourishment and the Trees’ root strength confine the River to its banks. When the River swells the Tree may topple, But certainly clinging to the banks with the tiniest threads for self preservation, knowing if it is plucked from the earth and cast off it is nevermore. The Tree stays close enough to the source of nourishment so it can still survive with minuscule effort and care from the River. Still the Tree holds on, not to succumb to the torrential waters as they erode away the slopes. Then through time, refreshment and reflection, the Tree starts to rebuild, renew with a rebirth. Not as it was. But stronger now that it’s previous branches take hold the silt and burrow to grasp deeper. Still fully aware this very well could be it’s last chance, For another storm of greater intensity would surely carry it to the tangled jam below. With nothing but confusion among its mass. Slowly the Tree will grow strong again with the fulfillment of its need from the River. As the River stays within it’s course and strays not from its channel with the myriad of the Trees new growth, expansion and strength.Till the damn Logger comes and shreds all hope

A Bowl full of Roses

Pink brings gentle meaning
to Lavender’s ‘magination
Yellow is the base for
Orange’s inflamation
White’s the One, it’s Pure
But Red is…
Love for Sure

No shade, no shine, no butterflies,
no bees
No fruit, no flowers, no leaves,
no birds! — No-vember!

-Thomas Hood (1799-1845)

I lost my ‘Friend’ when I was away in the service,
“Blue” was his name
We were both in love with the outdoors
Always together romping afield
searching for birds, Each, we adored….

He was a mutt of grandest of champs
no one would give litter a look
my uncle gave in and brought home his sis
Smokie they named her
as black and white mixed on her coat

My Dad took her in as we sat by the fire
Said she’s of pure in the heart
I remember the thought
as my dream of one’s sought
My pal would soon be coming my way

Dad took uncle Jeff to the breeder of sorts
Got there as quick as he could
Only one male for this little tale
and Dad wanted nothing of pups

With such a relief and smile on his face
Daddy came back with my pal
We grew as a pair as he was always there
my buddy my friend and “My Champ”

We hunted all over for pheasant and fowl
thru briars and brush without fail
my buds would call him a pain, cause he
would knock over drinks with his tail

He would bolt for the smell
of which I’ll not tell
and come back
when he was tired and through

But faithful was he, to be by my side
Big “Blue” was his name and
there’ll never be same (sigh)
and when he did pass….forever I’ll cry

Forgotten Song

Posted in Blogroll, Life, Nature, photography, Poetry with tags , , , on October 19, 2007 by Outdoors2

 

 

Cast to the bottom,
buried gravely away
Inside these chambers,
soft words, do lay

Returning are verses
stored for the years
Yet ever so slowly
yielding all fears

Singing of smiles
and more happy days
Joy’s to be wandered
on a well guided way

Memories recompense.
Join this new chorus
Vocals will shout,
with repeat performance

Forgotten Song

Quiet Banter

You lead I follow..You hint I hear
You hide I seek..You look I fear

You move I feel..You come I tense
Your scent I smell..Your breath I sense

You dart I go..You pulse I pound
You rest I pause..
For You I’ve Found!

Excited Calm

Posted in Blogroll, Hunting, Life, Nature, Poetry, Seasons with tags , , , , on October 3, 2007 by Outdoors2

Day begins on frosted blades,
from under with quiet shatter.
Stealth’s required near you now,
tis all that seems to matter.

Calmness of the dawns encase,
is deafening to my soul.
Without your scent to fill the air,
all senses take control.

Treading forth, but gracefully
on edge to judge our distance.
Peaks aware of all sensation
holding aft, with all resistance.

Your silhouette is all thats cast,
so entwined in amber hue.
This quest unfolds in wonder now,
as I behold, the beauty in you.

Night and Day

Autumn’s night
so crisp and clear,
drops me to my knees.
thin air to mend the soul is here,
a reckoning for my plea’s.

All searing heat and misery,
far from thought this eve.
shining stars, so pure and white,
When your not here, I grieve.

The Hunters moons about to set
it sends me on my way.
for this is how, I love to live,
stalking woods, all
Autumn’s day

We rip and tear
with claws and tugs.
We’re gnawing, grabbing
with passions hugs.

We hurry return
for pains remembered.
We’re insanely driven,
but softly tempered.

We fear not wild,
unrestrained, untamed,
We’re so.. brutally mild,
unleashed, uncontained.

We’re rarely encountered.
But when…… it’s a must !
Our feelings surmounted
This…… Wonder of Lust !
