Short poems and a good thought to share

Good thought:

"If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal."

Lots of  good folk here and other places online I would not have met otherwise, and I appreciate you all!

Now for some poems:

In honor of the time of year:

Fire Season

Come mountain summer,
green, then brown amid the rock --
blue sky yields to smoke
beneath the dry thundercloud
flashing heat bursts into flame.

For ZachtheHurricane, a friend of mine on DA, who's finally posting some of his writing:

To Z

The poet pauses,
eyes growing distant with thought,
chasing the right word.

How sound becomes shape,
words, images of power,
melodic motion.

Pause long - it is gone
on gossamer wings of flight
unless you write it

And of course, I had to write something based on the InuYasha cosmos:

Shikon no Tama

Wishes are not free -
You may ask what you desire,
But will it be right?
All is filtered through its soul -
Ask wrongly and pay the price.
