    Fantasy

    In the prairie down the hill,
    I can see the grass so green.
    With cascaded flowers everywhere,
    And their fragrances fill the air.

    As I walk as gentle as the breeze,
    Try not to harm life beneath my feet,
    Daisies, sweet peas and daffodils,
    And crown of laurels in my head.

    I felt the wind gently blew my hair,
    While dandelions dance in gay.
    A big smile painted colors in my face,
    As I watch them with such grace.

    The feeling just took my breath away,
    Surely a place beyond compare.
    An honor to be on this blessed soil,
    The refuge for any weary soul.

    I heard the birds singing just as sweet.
    Their hymns lull me back to sleep.
    Serene and peace I wont forget,
    As I laid my head to rest.

    Dear members
    I have entered poem contest. Please read/rate. Thank you

    It is titled " Impalpable dreams"

    Hope is the seed I sow to grow a tree of dreams.
    Like a waterfall that plunges into abysmal depths I feed it optimism.
    Hope blossoms inside the abysmal abyss.
    In autumn I harvest my garden which is overflowing with fragrance and colors of impalpable dreams.

    Winters Beauty

    Like steam locomotives, it's a tangible breath,
    Belching plumes, akin to the heaviest of chain smokers.
    Each bud & blade consumed by hungry jack himself
    Kissed completely with an ice cold dust

    White wash splattered with contempt,
    Smother motionless cars that slept sound by night.
    Into window corners frost creeps silent,
    Embedded with a Dickensian slant.

    A milky sun without power to burn,
    Relegates itself to a mere shadow caster
    And a Scooby-doo mist engulfs the long par three
    From weather beaten green too divot strewn tee

    This picture painted drowns many a heart in fear
    But for myself, it's a pinnacle to round off the year
    Crisp chilled air heralds the onset of snow
    It’s a perfect topping for a beautiful winter

    Hey people...

    Frazzled

    I loathe my existence.
    Can’t stand the picture in the mirror
    In my eyes.
    My Self in the mirror
    In the eyes.

    I loathe my presence
    Here and now.
    And my past future
    And my future past.

    All lives and livings
    Here are together
    Beside me
    Inside me.
    And I wonder
    And I secretly know
    All vain
    All worn out
    All pasts.

    Loud I quaver
    To my inner demons…
    What is being after all?

    Heyyy~ This is a poem I came up with for school. It is about the freedom in the USA. Please rate. :)
    Let freedom rain
    Take away all the pain
    Let freedom ring
    All the people will sing

    Abraham Lincoln freed all the slaves
    So they could have their own ways
    Finally freed from their masters
    Who we call as bastards

    Martin Luther King had a dream
    To unite all the different teams
    So no one would be separated
    And feel like they are hated

    Rosa Parks sat on a chair
    Waiting for someone to care
    At last, she got taken away
    And so no one felt okay

    Susan Anthony and [Name](Forgot her name XD) campaigned
    And all the rights women gained
    We are now able to vote
    And no more need to hope

    Thomas Jefferson made the Declaration of Independence
    And attracted the citizens' attendance.
    We all have rules and rights
    Which we need to follow every night

    Let freedom rain
    Take away all the pain
    Let freedom ring
    And all the people will sing~
