Thanks Goat, my fru fru haiku looks good neddle pointed in cashmire on burlap.

A little further to the left and a bit off kilter;
my horses were wondering if the barn has a loft or basement for this one they wrote.

a beautiful sunset despite any rain
sheng chi as wind and water entrain
clouds rise on the wings of the phoenix
generic facial tissue branded as kleenex

into my brain by ads on the eFM radio
asleep in a mayan hammock on the patio
rolling stones jest to test cheeky mojos
rocking the cradle with two butterfly yoyos

Howdy-do!

Just popping by with a well-greased quickie in my ha...

Oh, hey there lookingforsophia. Didn't see you there for a minute. Nice to see you in the barn. Loving what you're leavin'.

Now...pardon me for a moment...I just want to leave something here.

...adjust the arms....hmmm...

Yep, right there:

==========================================

This Just In

We received a phone call
A special phone call – just now
From a man in India somewhere

He told us there was a problem
With our windows
And he can help us

Oh, it’s no bother, I says
One of them sticks a bit
And they are a bit dirty

His voice was smooth and short
Grew on me like the hair on a terrier’s bum
I hung up the phone

============================================

Badoink! G'night!

Me again...found something. Here, see if it fits:

=======================================
A Shatnerian Love Poem

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary never speaks to me anymore
So I ask Captain Kirk what he would do
That good ol’ smirk works his face

And he says

Nothing much, just one, good flying leg kick
If that turns out to be not enough mustard
For that particular crap sandwich
Then, a well-placed karate chop
Right at the base of the neck
Will make sure the **stard stays down

Now that’s practical advice and
It sure beats that love, kindness and compassion
But if you can’t fix something with your hands
And work that problem like sourdough
Then just work yourself up into parboiled rage
Yell: "Khhhhhaaaaaannnn!"
Until your eyes water and twitch
Until your diaphragm inverts
Until your colon is spastic

Beats the hell out of Spock’s usual approach
Like a recipe for the galaxy’s driest cake:
Stoically apply logic to the problem
Analyze it in all shades of light
Dispassionately
When that fails, just lose your Vulcan Shit
Rip off the offending prick's head
And shit down his neck
Then smash the room, with his dead body

I’d think the Good Captain is more compassionate
Than his first officer

===========================================

Binds at the crotch a bit, but it ain't a bad fit.

G'night!

Me again. Got something.....

========================================

Spare, Soft, Single

Sometimes you will encounter
Something
So stupidly formidable
That all you can think to do
Is stare at it and try not to blink
And wonder how the hell
How the hell?
You're going to get through it

So
All you can do is breathe
Breathe through it
And feel

Feel that thread of your own breath
That spare, soft, single line
Running through you
From your first cry
To your last rite

Feel the coolness as it
Graces your in-breath
Feel the warmth as it
Blesses your out-breath

Feel your chest expand
As you make room for your heart
Seemingly forever cramped into
That too, too
Too-small space

Feel the rocking, the oceanic roll
As your lungs hold and caress
Your once old, cold soul

Expand, expand
Feel the point where you end
And the universe begins

Expand, expand
Be gracious until the thread
Of your breath
Straightens and brightens

This is kindness
This is compassion

==========================================

G'night!

Once again we have been graced with wise words- a gift only the goat holds... Simply, graciously and with compassion- I love you

Cycles of the heart
A river flows with the wind
Moments of solace

Is no one home???? Seriously- why delete the Goatsmell--He built this place 10 years ago!!!
Who is the moderator here?
Many people have passed through these barn doors ---Many people have made friends, had some good discussions , met their soul mates and some fine poetry has been left on these walls....

The barn has grown silent...
----
Tucked inside that space
Between time and memory
Was an old photo

While chewing curd...........
