Aquarius

Poem By Valerie Dohren

The Fish are dying
Polluted our crystal clear waters
Our once green valleys, choked and grey
With the debris of living
Lost is all Virginity
And the orbs clamber through space, gasping for breath

The trees are lifeless
Wilted the flowers
Only their deathly form remains
Impinged upon my soul - I grieve
For nature`s stolen life

Yet now a new Age dawns amidst the turmoil
Promise of a Golden Age for man
(Insensitive automaton)
And everywhere the cry:
'Big Brother is watching you'
'BIG-BRO-THER-IS-WATCH-ING-YOU'

Comments about Aquarius

the end of one era and the beginning of another cycle..
very nice imagery...this poem is very cool!
A very thoughtful write detailing how the nature is threatened, though we try to camouflage .
this is the age of Aquarius good read
I really like how you feel in this write. We actually have very similar thoughts on nature. I am an avid birder too! Good job on the portraying of anger towards destruction and being kept under finger!

Beauty

I saw the face of beauty fixed
Upon the rising sun
Beyond all mortal compliment
Her loveliness there shone

A Walk Through Paradise

I close my eyes to find a place
In different time and different space
And in imagination find
A cloistered arbour for my mind

Ode To A Lost Love

'Oh sweet breath of eternal life
Dance ever `pon her silent breast
Released from pain and worldly strife
The one I love is laid to rest'

A Dream

Today I slipped into a dream
And saw a better world
A world of peace and gentleness
Before my eyes unfurled

After The Rain

After the rain the air is sweet
With glist`ning pools beneath my feet
Raindrops dripping down from the eaves
Teardrops slipping off shining leaves

........ On Poetry

Such princely and linguistic feats
As penned by Shelley, Byron, Keats
Though rich and eloquently grand
Are oft` too deep to understand
