The Short (completed)

The Short (completed) Some want to give me an answer  Some wish to Tell me what’s so But I’d rather live in the present The place of “I really don’t know” – This place is where I can go higher This place is where I am just free This place is where I live from…

Perspective

Perspective For so long I’ve thought truth Is what is right, not what is wrong I’m beginning to discover there are many, many levels Your truth is often what you see What you only want to see Yet real truth goes much further beyond that Much deeper than that Much further out and about An…

March 1

March 1 It’s happening There’s a movement in the winds Change is once again Making its mark on the universe – Love is in motion About to raise a commotion Within the sleeping chambers of the dead This takes movement instead Of sitting around chatting about ideas – I feel it happening A new chill…

The Point

The Point I don’t want to read anymore I don’t want to think I don’t want to be told what to do Where to go, what to say, what to drink – I don’t want to pray like you anymore God already knows what I need I don’t want to hear anymore The difference between…

Twinkling

Twinkling I’m just sitting here Watching myself get older My skin gets paler My muscles weaker My adipose yielding to the forces of gravity Everything tired of fighting the inevitable – I have to wear my optics to see anymore I don’t want to hear so I don’t At least the food is good The…

January

January Some would see a barren tree I see hope and a future Some would see another sunset I see the promise of another day I see green in January The whispers of prior rains I see colors, colors everywhere I see mountains beyond the plains We all get to choose what and how we…

The Collections

The Collections Maybe these times of emptiness Cause me to be grateful when times are full Or maybe I’m just fooling myself Chasing apparitions – Maybe I shouldn’t be judging myself at all Taking time to analyze the how’s and why’s All the time and energy that takes Might just win the prize For the…

End of September

End of September This is the summer that is never ending The autumn came 3 days ago But only on the calendar The days are still warm; hot, even It seems they are waiting for something to change Something to change before they will change Sounds so familiar to me – I pass by a…

The Races

The Races I sit on the back porch Night Cool breeze stirring in its freedom The crickets chirping all around me An occasional change in their rhythm Rarely a change in their rhyme The waxing moon rests above Saturn in her gracious clutches Peace, tranquility, good This is the realm beyond time – Off in…

Life’s Essence

Life’s Essence We think we’re so smart Yet we really don’t even know what life is Sure you can boil and pipet You can microscope and experiment You can hypothesize, theorize We can discover Oxygen, carbon dioxide, glucose Neurons, mesons, electrical processes DNA that tells us everything Fourteen complex reactions for every photon Processing it…

Creatives

Creatives Artists are a lot like God They come up to a great nothing Blank and void and empty They begin to see They begin to draw They begin to paint Layers at a time At any given point You can hear the whispers from outside “What is that?” “That makes no sense” And the…
