Nature Poetry by Jamie Whorton

What
Lies
In this
Unknown
World?

Curiosity taking
My hand
Leading
The way
Ahead.

We
Walk
Together
Through
Life,

Learning
Lessons
as
We
Go.

Trying to
Find change
In the bank
Of
Our heart’s.

Hope’s
Bright beacon
Guiding us
On our journey
Making all possible.

ELLEGUYENCE

first snowfall:
dust flittering, quietly
off an unattended shelf
books from my childhood

you have no idea
how little I knew
before I knew you.
lighthouse, alight home
your pillow is always the softest.

loving you is like walking in the door, warm
the snow soaks into my clothes
turning to water and
rinsing me clean
you’ve always felt like
the sky itself, nestled
in my veins

never quite the gambling man,
you said you never believed in luck
until you saw my chances
and cast a bet anyway.

The Night and I

Nice one

Nature Poetry by Jamie Whorton

The western sky set a blaze by the sinking sun. Fiery red orange hues burning bright. Soon to be night. The Sun says goodnight to the moon shining bright. Evening Primroses illuminated by moon glow, mixing in with the tall grass. Silver tones reflecting, making all a dream walk. Being one with the night. Feeling the pulse of the earth’s beating heart coursing through my veins. The night and I are one and the same.

ELLEGUYENCE

6AM, fragile morning air
whispers of fall.
orange hue, honey’s dew
my lungs breathe in
the crack of crème brûlée
nestled in the back of my throat
sweet, burnt
sun, rising

the cafe ’round the corner
he’s smiling at her
behind the counter
he imagines tucking her wisps
behind her ears, she
pours frothed milk
white ribbons
holding back a yawn

“Keep the change,”
“see you at lunch,”
the softest exchange
familiar faces for another time

When the sun has woken up too,
he’s mustered the strength
to ask if he can
see her again
in the evening.

ELLEGUYENCE

Reach in search of self doubt
self hate
fear
anger
frustrations
and come up empty.

You have done enough
the universe is so proud of you
and all the light you’ve radiated
has fueled your loved ones
in loving you back, tenfold.

You are miraculous
a picture perfect work in progress
the stage is dress rehearsal
and you’re just getting started.

You have been magic since your birth
and when you get through
the roughest patch
you are magic, even still.

So let’s skip the dramatic clichés
exaggerated can-nots
let’s reach for everything we deserve
even if we’re scared of failing
and let’s walk on stage anyway.

This week, I’ve felt a bit of impostor syndrome and suffered the “I can’t do it” mentality. This piece has realigned me–if you’re feeling the same way, please use 44 to realign. Continue to reach and reach and reach.

Love,

ELLE

when my world stops

A Writer's Soul

When the world stops, and these monsters crawl from the ugliest of hearts,

That’s where I know I’ll find you , Buried in the most vulnerable parts of me,

Ready to take on that world when I want to hide. Though you won’t let me hide for long, but just long enough to heal, remove the salt from these wounds and fight again,

Because you know I could never stay down for that long.

But for now, you’re here and thats all I need. Hold me tight, drown out the worry and pain with that song you used to sing to me, when the world was at its breaking point.

Then I can say to you, thank you. Thank you for carrying me through, for holding my hands and never letting go. For being my constant in this world and hopefully the next.

Thank you for training me to fight…

Don’t Judge

chester maynes

Sometimes
we look beyond
too far from

somebody’s
mistakes and we
tend to cross

a
boundary by
saying too much

against
one’s imperfections,
blowing out

of
proportion.
We often forget that

there
is another chance
for that person to

embrace
change and we close
our minds and end up

judging.
And we hurt someone’s feelings.
And we ruin a relationship.

If
we can only understand,listen
more, and look for the good side,

then
bad things will be
avoided.
