Amber Blossom

Amber Blossom

Jacob Vinson


An amber blossom grows before my eyes
Attune with the shining of the autumn sun
Rising at dawn like a deep violin crescendo
Slightly wilted for lack of love’s nourishment

It smiles at me with a kind passion
Emitting its own light
Whispering at me with sweet pleasantries
Wanting me to come near
Needing to be healed

My pupils shrink with curious delight
Should I pick this flower or let it bask
In natures wondrous beauty?

Would it be better off with me,
With my broken heart its only shelter?

Could we cure each others scars,
As we lie under the open stars?

Oh, amber blossom, you intrigue me
Like no other flower before
You emanate a beaming radiance
That makes me want you ever more

If I leave, will our paths ever again intertwine?
Will I regret taking a different direction-
Regret not showing you affection?
That fear of these unknown truths
Tingles throughout my spine

I don’t want to taint your soul
For I am broken and weak
But just your soft presence
Makes my heart begin to speak-
Words filled with hope that can only come true
If I stay close to you

Oh, amber blossom
You are my world
We’ll grow together
A new life shall be unfurled

Full of contentment and splendor
Adventure and unending joy
You are so magnificent and desirable-
Rivaling Helen of Troy

Oh, amber blossom
Could it be true
That we’ll see every radiant sunset-
Every rising moon
Within each others delicate view?

Oh, amber blossom
Can it be so?
Do we belong together?

Only time will tell-
Only God can know

A Shameful Seed

Harmony of the Worlds- Pt2


Respecting Nature and Fighting Corruption

By Jacob Vinson

These flowers are dying every day, just as the morals of society.

These flowers are dying every day, just as the morals of society.

On the exact second that we were born, the planets were aligned in such a way that they can never, in our lifetime, be aligned exactly that way again. With this alignment, on your exact moment of birth, there was a sort of “harmony of planets-” A “song” made just for you. It is almost like the song that defines your soul- an imprint that truly separates you from anyone else. Unfortunately, Kepler never went as far as to look beyond the rotation and orbits of a planet too see what tones a specific time period would create, but rationally it would take several lifetimes to do so. Still, his research has brought forth an amazing mixture of planets and sounds. It is beautiful to think that everyone on the Earth is bound to the planets and stars harmoniously. Maybe one day we’ll be able to listen to our own “Harmony of the Worlds.”

The shore is a beautiful precursor to the flowing ocean that basks in the hues of the day’s end- the same ocean on which the day is just beginning in faraway lands. Faint piano notes and jazz riffs waft in the air even though there is no real music around. Nature tells a story of its own; it sings its own songs and encourages you to ponder upon their meaning. How we interpret this is entirely up to us. I choose to symbolize nature with a song- one that flows into your ears, one that compels you, and one that challenges one’s inhibitions.

The earth itself portrays a sort of harmony– and essence– that some fail to see. Darkening clouds are being moved by the wind, shaking trees and vines. The mere sight or feeling of wind heightens everyone’s attentions. “What’s about to happen?” They may say- “Is is going to rain? I hope it doesn’t. Ugh!”

Why complain about something beautiful as the wind and rain? They are both parts of our lives that harmoniously keep us alive. They are strong components, and can’t be controlled by humans. This is not our world, this is nature’s world, and we have to respect that.

I hear all of the time about people dangerously riding out hurricanes and other wild storms. This is completely ridiculous. Our lives are more fragile than some of us would like to believe. It takes days for a hurricane to die down. It takes a millisecond for a human to die.

This reminds us that we have to learn to work together and try to make this world a better place, instead of ignoring the increasing dangers. A corrupt seed is growing- evil, hatred, and disrespect are all growing rampant, and frankly, it’s almost impossible to stop it. But, my friends- there is still hope, and that hope is you. Respect nature, don’t be afraid to snitch on the wicked and corrupt and money-hungry officials and thieves, but most importantly keep an optimistic yet aware mindset. I’m sure all of us agree that it couldn’t hurt to try to positively increase the health of society and nature. It may be a losing battle, but it is truly a noble one, and if I died fighting for these rights, I would die I happy man.

Please take what I’ve said into consideration. I’m only 18, but when I’m grown and married, I want my children to live in a world that’s even better than the one I live in now. It’s up to us…. It’s up to us.

Let’s do this. Let’s do it together… We can uproot this shameful seed we’ve sown. Here are some websites that can help lead us to the path of justice:

Thank you so very much for your time- please comments with your advice and/or other links that I can add to the blog. This is no game, this is war- a war that we must win- for the sake of humanity.

We have to uproot the shameful seed our past generations have sown.

Good luck and God Bless!
