poetry

Pent up energy

Ten to the 26th watts

Energy from the sun

Harness the light

In one form

Harness a volcano

Cascading down

Smooth magma flows

Geothermal form

Energy of motion

Shower of particles

Active galactic nuclei

Whirling black holes

Petroleum and methane

Stored underground

Life cycle of dead plants

And  animals

Stretch the fabric of space

Another false sunrise

Life as we know it

Romantic and dangerous

Advertisements

Roots and stagnant water

Passing phenomenon. Geological times

New landscape with volcanic rock forms

Everywhere it’s puffing and steaming

Harvesting water a hurricane

Hidden crevasses all around

Visibility zero, a total whiteout

Methane gases rise in the atmosphere

Ends the Cretaceous time.  67 million years

Enveloped in an ash cloud

Gas and solid rocks spew out

Freakish creature in the ribbed sand

New kind of theropod.  Non-avian

Common ancestor of the first birds

Crash-landed on a mesa from the stars

The missing link, most primitive specimen

Small body, small claws and powerful arms

A raptor with few changes. A herbivore

Evidence of feathers if you explore

~~~~~~~~~

Mangrove swamp.  Long-lost environment

Leaves its signature in the sediment

Petroglyphs depict  a rich timeline

Where Ghost Estates now lie

Perfectly preserved covered in gold

Further courtyards to his abode

Blue, green, yellow, brown

Dark companion, how did you perform?

Color spectrum fades and melts

10acious creature, a quiet toast

Took all the bones and buried them here

Spectacular nature… Mother Earth

 

that’s what annoys me

 

I hate nothing.  I never hate.

Only hardened hearts and fashion slaves

And people who act REALLY goth

Or the smell of a dirty litter box

People who hate message boards

Disloyalty and rumors

Mayonnaise, mustard and wild mice

Poison ivy/sumac and loud noise

Also bees.  Any bug that stings

Self-replicators, genes and memes

I hate the bright sun when driving home

Freewebs.  (So unreliable.)

People who talk smack about parents

Discrimination of any sort.  Intolerance

Double standards, Reality TV

Bullies, rapists, religious extremes

People who get on my nerves

Druggatics and stalkers

Immature people who are over twelve

Extreme dislike for car commercials

I hate that Justin is such a jerk

And clown pictures in the dark

People who speak leet all the time

And wannabes are so annoying

I hate snobs and people who brag

Terrorists, nazis and the war in Iraq

Emos, hacks and perverts

Should be avoided at all costs

Mathematics of the algebraic perswasion

Fleas, ticks, country music and sunburn

I hate nothing.  I never lose my temper

Still amusing as much as ever

Not enough caffeine in my bod

I hate that I’m not rich.  Rock on!

Frigate Bird

Desert isle, visions of trees

A place not many people see

Free and easy, screaming shrilly

The Figate bird sailed by

Circled over the inner bay

Mile long Southwest Cay

Within the lagoon

It flew

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brackish water, dreamy rapture

Reached my ear

Safe and happy

Go on! Sing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lighthouse above the sea

Roaring ocean receeding

Softened and became silent

…Eventually
