Death Is Never More Beautiful

Such beautiful words for an amazing time of year. Lovely poem, Mit. I can’t wait to see more from you.

Miracles Unleashed

Death Is Never More Beautiful


© 2012 by Mit Maras


In unwavering reverence,

We watch as she dances,

Hues of autumn adorn her ever reaching branches.


With a natural pluck,

Each canvas spirals down,

Until nothing but death now blankets the ground.


For so long we have sought,

The solitude of her darkest places,

Forced from shadows we now bare our own faces.


Death has now befallen her.

Yet, death … has not beaten her.


She stretches exposed arms,

Void of those she held dear,

Rooted against all threatening new life next year.


Standing bare and vulnerable,

Her loss is witnessed by all,

Heaven’s perfect example of our choice to stand tall.


Held captive in a place

Where heartache and darkness rule,

She towers the world,

All proof … death is never more beautiful.

The Fall

The Fall

© 2012 by Kat Bastion


Misted platinum wafting by lures a nymph to dance,

Sprinkles falling, laughter rising, spinning pure romance.

Fragile wings spiral higher, flirting with the sun.

Captured by a passerby, innocence begone.

Discarded leaves tumble past in muted reddish hues,

Coldness slowly settles in, vibrance does recuse.

Sadness looks with longing eyes out into the world,

Kindness brings a soft caress, silken wings unfurl.

Loving smile, a whispered touch, sends a soul to soar.

Bonds are broken in sweet flight, freedom evermore.

To the heavens angel flies, heartbeat starts to stall,

Grounded, solid arms do reach, there to catch the fall.

Seven smiles

You’ve taken my breath away again, Diedre. {smiles a Number Six} #PureJoy

The Red Velvet Chair

Smile Number One
can make anyone
come undone
a bright megawatt
showing pearly whites
let’s the world know
you are in control.
Smile Number Two
is shy yet
your eyes peek out
from under long lashes
giving a glimpse
hidden passions.
Smile Number Three
you’re laughing now
wide open smile
head thrown back
crinkled eyes
in for a laugh attack.
Smile Number Four
is very sly, a smirk
one upturned corner
mischievous grin
subject to guessing
about what trouble you’re in.
Smile Number Five
is the polite you
expressing gratitude
but only half felt
as your mind is wandering
to someone else.
Smile Number Six
is pure joy
radiant glow
a goofy grin
to the world you show.
Smile Number Seven
is your invitation
to heaven
knowledge of two
and what can come true.
So smile your smiles
for the world to see
but save Smile Number Seven
just for…

Heaven… Found

Heaven… Found.

I settle into the moment.

Time stalls.

The world… falls away.

I nestle closer.

Lips… nuzzle.

Pulse… thrums.

Musky scent… intoxicating.

Salty taste… captivating.

Strong arms embrace.

I sigh.

Warmth spreads.

Silence reigns.

A moment… forever captured.




I am… unbound.

Heaven… found.
