My dearest planet Earth,
What will become of your future?
Your ice caps begin to melt at the poles
Raising the sea water to high levels
When we don’t know when they overflow our banks
To possibly flood us out
And land masses sink below
Your wild nature shinks before my eyes
Forests disappear in a heartbeat under our destruction
Our vast animals now begin to dwindle to extinction
Lands begin to dry causing fires to invade;
Destroying everything in its path.
What will our children see of you, Earth?
Will they see a thriving place to live?
Or will they from space look at you with sad eyes
As they leave the planet we have used for so many generation.
What will become of you, oh Earth?
My planet of life;
I hope in our coming days we will find a way
To secure a future for another 5,000 years.
I waited in water for you to come.
But your lumbering self did not show yet
I recieved your letter to late my tasty salmon friend
I have just woken up from my long slumber
where Spring has finally arrive
Will you come soon bear,
To try and catch me this year again?
I wait swimming up steam for you
I will try to come quickly
There are many distractions
For which force to stop:
Umm, these berries are delicious
You don’t have much time bear
Before you will your chance to get me
I can only wait for so long
Please hurry soon!
I will arrive tomorrow soon
To see if I can swipe my paw
To grab your scaly self
For you will make great protein
As I eat for lunch
For, I am a hungry bear
We will see if you do
I hope to swim through your clutch
And watch me how I get away again
See you, I am the hopefull salmon
Golden sun sinks beyond horizon
Her light fades in passing to night
I watch her disappear and mourn
Wishing she could stay longer
Her youthful glow I will miss
Until she rides high above the skies
Her sunbeams radiate off energy
I rejoice in the coming morning
As she peaks her golden head
Above the horizon once more
Fog rolls in
Air seems to dissipate
Hard to breathe
Hard to see what is ahead
Time has stop
No wind rustles
Silence fill in
Emptiness hangs in the air
Light is gone
Nightly fog has come in
The night is cold
Mother nature opens her hand
She sprinkles white dusting of frost
Over cold hard ground.
Frost like powder
Blankets a thin layer on ground
As cotton candy, frost sticks
refusing to melt for it is a cold coming winter.
Morning, I see frost outside
Knowing winter has come around the corner
Frost has invited winter to come
Lay a heavy blanket of snow soon.

I would have to say it was fun being able to publish another book of poetry. I have some other poetry book ideas in the works.
Blackness creeps in slowly, for days get shorter
Wind picks up a rustle as cold comes creeping too
Seasons began to change day by day in August
Until September brings it full throttle for Fall to began
Then see leaves start sporting their colors
Feel humid air disappear only to be replace by brisk cold air
Barely we notice the changes until they come upon us
But, I notice as dog and I take our walks
