Noble Silence

Here I am outside the ring
Holding in I cannot sing
Wondering what the day will bring
To this wounded soul
Off to wander in waking dreams
Sparkle dust and soft moon beams
Silent unheard child still screams
Make this broken whole
Decisions I am left without
As souls I share go about
Their business,
It's their business
After all
Not knowing I can
Neither agree or disagree
Nod in noble silence
Alone in company
My spirit cries out set me free
I do not heed the call
Further and further in I fall

Time Is Relative

Time is relative
What is a relative
A cherub face
A warm embrace
An ancient asking in
To be heard or live again
But their time is done
Still maybe they have clung
To a life unfulfilled
Died or were killed
Make peace for them
If you can
Let them in and out again
Time is a gem
Quantum or collective
Time is relative

Joy in the morning
Hope is high
Mindful of mourning
On days gone by
Up and to it
Off you go
You can do it
Even so
You are not alone
No telephone
Can tell you
The way that I feel
I am in your soul
Love that's deep and real
Completes every girl and boy
The order of love
Of love and joy
July 27, 2006



Ripples on the lakes and ponds
Ferns unfurl their feathered fronds
Forgotten folks forever gone
And not gone at all
They push and pull us through the years
Shedding, dreading, drying tears
Calming and instilling fears
From dusk until the dawn
Embrace them so we all heal whole
Ancient omnipresent ancestral soul
We come from love and love's the toll
Let us pay it now
They will show us how

The Wonder

The wonder flows inside of you
Emotion that is both old and new
No purer love or truer true
Than this moment in time
Holding love craddled in your arms
Your mind could spin a thousand yarns
Never have you known such charms
As this new love does shine
Far above the far off fall
Your heart has heard the beckoned call
The chosen few the one and all
Sing out your destiny
Love lift and let a family Be
And being says it all

Swelter weather
Felt her leather
Seats stick to my legs
As I slowly drained the dregs
And drank in the sunshine
Puddle pool for piddle play
Subtle rule you can't obey
Anger swells in angst rhyme
Ancient and aging daily
Dog awakes the baby
Chilling is the chime
Sickened by the grief
Hot heat that has no relief
Seeking some cool shelter
Sinking slowly silently in the swelter
July 23, 2006


Maybe not
What we've got
Shows us reason
Sorry sails on every season
Broken hoop
Colored Purple
Loose the loop
Heal the circle
Spreading ever on and out
Wash away wayward sin
Stop the cycle's silent shout
Let the healing begin
Let the healing begin
July 22, 2006

God's Favor

Let's savor
God's favor
Full flavor
Loving true
Being you
Forgiving battles fought
Really living like we ought
Love yourself and love your neighbor
Going, getting, giving with God's favor

Feeling Found

En Guard...Tou chez
Sword ready to play
Racquet up volley
And keep it coming on
Feel this lazy
World's gone crazy
Rockets up holy
It just goes on and on
Lord loves Israel
We stand on this trail
Ever homeward bound
Lost souls feeling found
July 17, 2006

Better Days

Bitter trials, batter up
Better days, seize your cup
Drink it deep, breath it in
Brand new start, begin again
But with old friends and with new
Ready to run but running's through
Stop, stay face fear and then
No more running against the wind
Let it go and let it be
Hell and gone from history
That makes life stay the same
Binds you, breaks you in its chain
Fight yourself and fight in vain
Cast off this sorry shame
And be
Just be
July 16, 2006


Tongue Tied

Tongue tied
or should be
Dung hide
or could be
Hung pride
or would we
Do not speak
When kindness
cannot be found
Don't be mindless
What goes around
comes around
To avoid relation riot
Best maintain noble quiet
July 8, 2006

Morning Mush

In the quiet of morning
Thoughts are forming
That make me go
With eyes closed
To Mexico
Or Thailand
Thought is grand
A Foreign Land
My soul's a wanderer
I feel like a foreigner
In my home and in my town
Fly me off and set me down
Until I have my cash fill
Do they play jazz in Nashville?
July 7, 2006

Quiet Brain

Thoughts tumble in my mind
Replaying the total daily grind
Feeling I failed to meet the test
Bent on building better and best
But thoughts don't stop to let me rest
And sleepless nights I find
So if on this planet I seek to remain
I have got to find a way to say
Quiet brain
Quiet brain
Quiet brain
July 5, 2006

Independence Calls

What of rules
Are rules for fools
Or for when brains fail
What of free
Is free for me
And you in a trains tale
Where we crossed the prairie
And rode a ferry
Found a fossil
Lived colossal
Filled up and very
Unchain my heart
So I cry
From the liar's lie
Safe in your arms ever hence
There I find my independence
July 2, 2006

Thank you for my life

I sit on this raft lost at sea
And stare at the wonder in front of me
Content for a moment to just let it be
And this is good
I hold part of the future in my arms
New life old soul colorful charms
From city streets to country farms
Suppose I could
Go back in time and change
Would that be good or simply strange
Choices like dominoes in range
Tumbled where they would
I would heal the hurt in others first
Mine down the line
Quench this thirst
That would be fine
I have dodged death's knife
Long enough to learn a thing or two
I am thankful for my life
And most thankful for loving you
June 30, 2006

Wait a minute

Wait a minute
I did that
The minute went
I lay flat
Dodging duty
But jumped up
When you came to me
That's enough
I said truly
Since time leaves no escaping
What is the point in waiting
Tomorrow's a long time
Yesterday's tomorrow's
Have long since passed
Do you a dream
Then begin it
Don't hold back
Don't wait a minute
June 29, 2006

The Circle

If you came to get and not to give
You will find yourself wanting
No matter how long you live
You will find the past is daunting
If you have to wonder what you did
That wasn't all for you
The grown up needs to be the kid
And the kid the grown up true
Children teach us to see clearly
What we ought to cherish dearly
To take into our heart
The magic that's the start
Of life and the ending too
I am happy for the time
I have to spend with you
In an endless circle
Of love that is ever true
June 24, 2006

I Forgot to breath

I forgot to breath and didn't even notice
Someone said hey inhale I hardly heard their voice
I was concentrating on the pain
I had generated with my choice
And I guess it comes down to this
Deeper meaning magic lotus
Relax don't have a cow
Flow into the moment
Be one with the Now
Don't have a hissy fit
Stay on don't quit
Do your best
Take the test
Keep the quest
Walk when others drive
No one gets out a live
Just breath
June 22, 2006


Chasing Time

You wouldn't know I was in a race
But for the sweat on my brow and strain on my face
Struggled and juggling just to keep pace
And to squeeze out just one more rhyme
Though my belt has stretched out more than a inch
Though I reach out to clutch and to clinch
There is no kind of wizardly winch
Than will slow this race against time
Racing time
acing time
Pacing time
Chasing time

We Are Glad You Came

What wonders await the working
Of Miracles in believing hearts and minds
What courses cannot be charted
When change is so sublime
Now gurgles, giggles and going
Is how we spend our time.
Snuggles and huggles
Dancing and singing
So much joy
For one soul to be bringing
Into our home
Into our hearts
Which are never more the same
Though we're weary for the wear
You're with us everywhere
And we are so glad you came
And we are so glad you came
une 10, 2006


Watermelon comes with a smile
Memories of a barefoot child
Romping on the Georgia clay
Standing in the summer rain
My mothers laughter echoes
Such is time and time goes
More stories left for telling
Sweet fragrant smell I'm smelling
Tales to tell so tell them
And pass the watermelon

June 7, 2006


Full Bloom

Full bloom summer coming
Till noon spent in slumber
Hammer nails and lumber
To do list distinctly drumming
Sharp pain wants number
Roof leaks bad plumbing
House hassle a Bummer
Shark scene no chumming
Supper sit down summing
Pick me out a tune
Full Bloom

Weather Man

Sun shames the weather man
Rain has hidden its head
Regardless of what weather man said
The moist leaves glisten in the sun
Hope is high Day's begun
I think I can I think I can
I think I can
I'm glad I am not
The weather man
June 3, 2006

June Came to Soon

June came too soon
Rainy day tune
Dark clouds no moon
Time to make room
No time to spoon
Up and at 'em
Off I go
Through the arboretum
Chasing my lost freedom
Don't you know
The way
I have lost mine
You say
I will find it again
If in time
That's a win win
If I do
I may smile but for now
June came too soon
