Le Guitar

Here I stand guitar in hand
Not lonely with my stringed friend
Weaving melodies that soothe
The soul and make the man
Feeling peaceful and sweetly grand
Like a good day at its end
When moon shine sets the mood
Soft light to slowly dine
Candle light, my love, red wine
Forever where you are
Me and my guitar

Just Let It Rest

Times we hold to our hearts
Are the very best
Many finishes and false starts
Will face the folly of time's test
Some times you have to walk away
And just let it rest
Fold the memories carefully
Tuck them safe and sound
Face the trials prayerfully
Thankful for what you've found
If you hit the ground just rebound
Don't lay where you fell
Get past the end and it will go well

Spring Day

A spring day
Seasoned with cool wind
Lost in time
Wishing I could send
A note or word
But it occurred
To me
You are about business
I see
If I could change this
I would squeeze more time
To watch sea spray
Hold your hand
This spring day
So that I could simply say
You grew up good let's play

This Rain

This rain cleans the air
It make lustrous greens
It clouds over this despair
It makes the way and means
To this cozy easy chair
Barefoot in these jeans
I'm content to sit and stair
At this rain that's falling out there

Pay Up

Wha' zup?
Pay up
The tab is due
Enough
It's rough
It's up to you
See scope
Have hope
Until you're through
Be friend
Love send
Right back to you

Moving On

Memories close to the heart
Imprinted on the brain
Reaching endings and a start
Yet attachment will remain
Love and longing are not gone
And you ask yourself how
How will you move on
Because it is over now
But does love ever end
Transition: lover to friend
Facing a brand new dawn
Praying for a way to move on
Move on
Move on

Just Let It Rest

Times we hold to our hearts
Are the very best
Many finishes and false starts
Will face the folly of time's test
Some times you have to walk away
And just let it rest
Fold the memories carefully
Tuck them safe and sound
Face the trials prayerfully
Thankful for what you've found
If you hit the ground just rebound
Don't lay where you fell
Get past the end and it will go well

The Last To Know

Everyone heard the tale but you
It's an old story you can't misconstrue
Having heard I still wonder if it's true
Nothing lasts forever is all that it proves
That and someone else has bigger sorrows
One who cannot pay for what he borrows
One who has run out of his tomorrows
He may not even be able to sing the blues
I look into the mirror and ask it will it show
Why is it that I seem to be the very last to know
Some one always has it better and some one worse
There are times when all you need
Is to to hear a happy verse

The Fool

Schools say there is a way
Every day a fool's day
Wishing for a warm veranda
Steeped in steely propaganda
Feeling like an alien thing
Drunken dreadful sodden king
Jester there behind the curtain
Pig fat friends that's for certain
Tenfold the cost of their construction
They are mad with mass distruction
Sing a jingle then ring a bell
Here they find their space in hell
If in fact there's such a place
Face them toward then leave
No forlorn smile on weathered face
No widow left to grieve

So very far from comfort and from cool
So sits the jester and the fool

Forward Still

It seems like time has a will
To hold me here in this place
Even though I've had my fill
My plans seem to self erase
There doesn't seem to be a pill
Or a drink that can encase
Dreams I have that hate the chill
I long for a warm embrace
The ocean just beyond the sill
Summer breeze candle light and lace
Strain the reins so forward still
Break free to run the race

Butt High

Butt high legs straight
Wants to walk, can't wait
Fast and forward his gait
When he gets the swing

Coordinated crawling
Frustrated squalling
Lost freedom calling
Time for us to sing

Soon there'll be a bike
And the mountains and a hike
Maybe an open mic
Whatever is his thing

Love will do what love must do
We're here and we'll take care of you
Move forward toward your fate
With butt high, legs straight

I Don't Know If I Am Up For This

I don't know if I am up for this how about you?
When you add up all we've seen and heard how much of it is true?
If the truth is always the truth is a lie always a lie?
People in authority seem to have a standard that passes that standard by
Pancakes falling freeing travel at a free fall rate
When they are thrown down they face another fate
I could sit and pray and ponder this and more for hours
What really happened in the tale of the two towers.


 

Chani's Birthday

The wonder of you
The newness of you
The you-ness of you
Are all apart of the treasure
You are to my soul
Would that we could take our leisure
And go for a stroll
Walk on the beach
Like we did today
There is much to learn and teach
And so very much to say
Your life is a canvass
Of rainbow hues
Who would plan this
You are my good news
I love you every day
Happy happy happy birthday

The one thing that makes me unblue
Is having one on one time
Just me and you

Flew Flu

Headaches like ocean spray
Seashell roar
Scorching day
What's this for
Foul frothing flu
Lays down me and you
Makes the baby cry and cry
It is
best when it says good-bye
Drink your fluid to make it through
You'll feel better when the flew flu
Anywhere but here today
Flu just fly away

Otay (I used my song titles in the lines)

Otay said one that walked away
Looking for a brighter day
The trouble with love is sorrow
So don't trade today for tomorrow
Or tomorrow for today
Love is kind then it ends
But forever let's stay friends
We do our best just you and me
We hoped so long for give us free
Where do we go, I wanna
Go to the Club Americana

Where can I find love I ask
When so many wear a mask
So much love until we're done
And you can't call 911
For you the cooing of a dove
Is such a far cry from love
I must walk away
You smiled and said "Otay"

Bloom

The tulips will come calling soon
They herald in the spring in fine bloom
Rows and rows below the hills
The tulips and the daffodils
The color spills onto the ground
Another season rolls around
We will sing a springtime tune
While watching tulips bloom

Heavy Sighs

Softly across puffy pillows
Heavy sigh creeps
Like wind in the willows
Infant wonder sleeps
In quiet slumber
I look on from under
A grown up burden
On which I'd draw the curtain
Take in the moment for certain
With both my heart and with my eyes
And feel the love abound in heavy signs
March 14, 2006


Circles

Fogged in under clear skies
Asleep awake I realize
I'm sailing troubled seas
So let it out and keep it in
Come full circle once again
Finding comfort finding peace
In unspoken words and rhymes
In the tokens of the times
Round and round without end
Seamless circles spin and spin
And spin

Better

Whether former or later
Mind you it does matter
Add better to the batter
Better best be Good


Life gives you a scolding
Troubles tear unfolding
So much to be holding
Let it go you should

Be on best behavior
Hold out for a savior
As common as xavier
Cast off knock on wood

Toll the world keeps turning
Releasing with a burning
Let this constant yearning
Be free flowing like it should

March 11, 2006


Seasons

Some seasons are sophisticated
Seamless passing not complicated
We realize why we waited
For a just or unjust reward
Elated by emancipation
Forever free from frustration
It seems the joyous consternation
Will last forever more
Lunar phases come and go
Seasons change as we all know
The good, sad, happy, bad
Are just the ebb and flow
Of the life that we have had
High or low what are the reasons
It is just the passing of the seasons

March 9, 2006



The Truth

The truth is just the truth
It is the same forever
In our old age and our youth
True is true bad or better
Find the truth or try
Tell the truth even if you die
Perhaps dying is the beginning
Not the last and final inning
A single moment will be the score
Adding up a life there is this
And nothing more

Gathering

Friends make the days seem warmer
Though the winter clings not be former
But to be present still
Waking us with its cold chill
Causing teeth to chatter
But still it doesn't matter
When we warmly gather
Sharing creature comforts, time,
Laughter, food and fine wine
We wait for winter to disappear
Happily because it's warm in here

Wake up

The alarm sounds and it's time to rise
Another day awaits our weary eyes
Wander to work and to little surprise
As we set out to do it all once again
The bell rings and it's time to depart
Packing and walking to homeward we start
To the comfort and care that's good for the heart
We have run the race to the end
For love,or a son or daughter or friend
Each of us wakes up and takes on the course
It is part of it all as we feel our life force
Wake up and look for a chance to be giving
For such is the reason why we're all living

Rise Up

What great things can come from hard times
Those who find life lifting them to low places
Where they have to make a stand to survive
See what seemed a disaster caused bell chimes
And tears turned to smiles on the very faces
Of those who questioned if they should be alive
A prisoner forsaken and left alone
Then freed and taken returned home
Slammed. Lifted. Found. Drifted. Fell. Trod.
Rise up and look up and look out and look in
Life goes better with God again and again
