Down the deserted back roadHand me another beer.We plan to be free, you and me,and bask in the blazing sun. Is that a cop?No, we can keep being free.See, that lake is full of fish,that’s another place to camp. Go this way, not that way,I know a really great place.Hand me another beer dude,and holdContinue reading “Back Road”
HUMANITY: An acrostic Hounds of hell, drivingUs to our future.Mankind rising up,Against our dying,Never Surrender.In the jaws of pain,Till we are alwaysYoung in Paradise. (Photograph is of the Carousel on the Mall in Washington D.C.)
Sunshine through the window,lifts my heart when I’m low.It makes me smile. There’s a happiness that comes;and through my heart it runs,then sits a while.
I support freedom, in all its ways. I support the freedom to live, and earn as your purpose calls. I support the working man’s call for life. I support protecting this world. I support the original instructions, and Love’s law. I support the hope for a better day I support the faith it will come.Continue reading “I Support”
The sea waves, washing empty shells clean. Laid in the sand, just where each should be. The being, gone from inside the shell, leaving colorful beauty behind. In life’s waves, we are born and we grow, only to die and be lain to rest. Our soul is gone, from this now worthless shell, leaving behindContinue reading “Empty Shells”
The old man’s dock, on a cold Scottish loch,when the cock crows, he stands in a warm frock,Taking stock of life’s secrets to unlock.He stands firm to mock, death’s calling tick tock.Hard as a rock, he leans against the shock,as waves of fear knock, upon his old crock. (Internal Mono-rhyme)
This world screams at you. “Your birth insults me, and I will break you. Feel time slip away, And your loves destroyed.” “I never stop. Relentless Time. Hounding your mind. Slaving to eat.” “Crushing you. Twisting you. Molding you.” “Until You Are.” “Dead” (Diminished Hexaverse) (Photograph of a swamp at Rend Lake in Southern Illinois)
The Lake;sparkling vastlike a river of crystalthrough a green golden dream. The air is warm,and the breeze is cool.The music plays,and the kids run. The birds;those lovely birdsour friends, singingsweet to the beatof Life. Zoom to the lake,perfectly warm, butcool enough.Dragonflies swoop,where the fish jump. It’s hard to stand;in the wake of the boats.Waves poundingContinue reading “The Lake”
Golden leaf alone,falling through days final light,to land among friends.
Some discover it;some never do. Everyone has it;yes, even you. Born with something;something to do. Sometimes you know it,or work it through. Sometimes you die,or live a lie. If we all do our thing,how great that would be. God will guide us,if we ask Him too. He will give us a place;to do what weContinue reading “Your Own Thing”
