Self-Portrait Through Nature, Part I


I am spent

I am a dying star
seconds from exploding
I am a melancholy rain cloud
spilling over with tears
I am chilled glacial water
rushing with icy emotions
I am the fragile seeds of a Dandelion
hardly hanging on in a storm
I am a lifeless Bleeding Heart
petals perishing in winter

I am decaying




Self-Portrait Through Nature, Part II


I am perilous

I am a reckless avalanche
without signs of slowing
I am a frenzied storm
triggering fits of chaos
I am an eager Ifrita
hazardous for one's health
I am a formidable meteor
surviving the atmosphere
I am the beaming Sun
breaking through murky clouds

I am irrepressible
