the purpose of our existence
is very clear indeed
life live with graciousness
not stuck in greed
and shift to meaning
beyond our physical realm
simply enjoy the beauty
underneath the elm

underneath the elm I found a caterpiller
slowly walking the edge of a fallen leaf
pondering nothing outside dimensionality of this scene
time slipped into a moment of disbelief
how could I be late for dinner
watching that worm walk bye
it just may make me thinner
daydreaming beneath blue sky

Daydreaming beneath the blue sky,
soon comes rain dropping in my eye.
Don’t mistake the crystal-clear rain,
for sad tears that are cried in vain.

Without rain the flowers won’t grow,
without tears emotions don’t flow.
I could love you without caring,
like Thanksgiving without sharing.

like Thanksgiving without sharing
I would then blow faraway, a dream
I refused to cry..
I brushed away nightmares.
Then all fled me. Cry.

Then all fled me. Cry
And as I lay there weeping
They were not sleeping
But observed my tears with a sigh
For my pain is their pleasure
And by this they can measure
Their own status in life
Their minds sharp as a knife

their minds sharp as a knife
industrial in their application
pierce my weary bones..
clock in..clock out..round
and round the mulberry bush
atishoo...all fall down!

before you know it..
you are dead.most of your life.
half the world starves..the
other 40percent work their
fingers to the bone..
and the rest sharper their knives

the rest sharpen their knives
to surgically remove the line
forming at the doctor
where the cost is a crime

and if you pay the fine
then it's your heart divine
that needs surgical help
from all the power and wealth
we've amassed at this time

yet where is the love
that flows through our blood?
is it possible our loss
is what drowns like a flood?

is it possible we've sold
our soul to get things
forgetting the real blessings
whisper like angels with wings

we've all but forgot
we love such a lot
bestowed to each other
each a sister or brother

bestowed to this world
our beloved earth mother
bestowed to father sky
but lost if we lie
and kill till we die....

yet if we can remember
and learn to surrender
our well of love will flow
as above, so below

so listen to your heart
let your love become your art
for we really can impart
a precious love for all

and perhaps each time we fall
it's our spirit that we call
for nothing is foresaken
when our love does awaken

When our love doth awaken,
of innocence shall thy speak,
Ode to such tender passions
that my heart grows weak
in thy presence!

in thy presence
schemes get lost
timeless essence
spare no cost
feels like I'm floating
with an empty head
no baggage we're toting
no word needs to be said
diving into the pool of your eyes
that bottomless cup of wonder
no hint of any kind of disguise
love's spell I'm falling under

love's spell I'm falling under
maybe this time I won't plunder
it with my illusion
causing confusion

if I can truly let it flow
the stream of love...just let it go
then the spell that feels uncertain
will unleash a loving curtain
that just keeps rising and rising
like the sun on the horizon

and when it's time for it to set
our love will still flow yet
so even in the darkest night
through the stars we'll feel our light

Through the stars we'll feel our light,
deep within, yet, out of sight.
My warm light has kept burning,
through the years of my yearning.

Now you burn with me on fire,
my burning is of desire.
You burn, as a good liar,
please, God, turn hell’s heat higher.

burn off the worthless, toast me on a pyre
i fought off the messenger now its down to the wire
your beliefs have left me ill eased

nazi pedophiles claim they are the one
the votes were cast, the deed was done
the war is lost but that battle was won
you are useless, sick and diseased

you are useless sick and diseased..
yet still acknowledge me..
dragging yourself from that bed
and I have kept you this last week
for my own selfish reasons..
hoping that God might intervene
hoping that this is not the end..
oh now my my heart is full
to dance like dogs in the sun
is what I'd wish to do.
but our spirits must now part
those that don't know the love
of a pet have not a full heart

have not a full heart
beaten by memories
reminded of how humane
a simple gesture can be
fill it again with hope
understanding is a gift
glory in knowing
all shall come to pass

shall fall upon the grass
shall wash away like ash
shall be talked about in class
even riding on an ass
reaching for that brass
to rise up from the trash
too much bling is crass
fashions never last

fashions never last
but they do seem to cycle around
life that is found in circles
no beginning or end
just looking for a connection
more time to spend

more time to spend
watching my sky
it is mine
it ain't yours.
you have a share
but...you watching..is me knowing
I saw a sister in my sky.
And you? What is the sky?

And you? What is the sky?
Do you always question why
We exist - gorillas in the mist
Sweet 16 & never been kissed
But what have you really missed?
Halitosis & false words of affection
Saves a broken heart & misdirection

Miss Direction..old pointy finger
with one wave she conquered France
circumnavigated the globe
from the safety of a Welsh Dresser
we were all entranced by her ability
to see around corners..and through
walls..and into our minds eye?
Look with your minds eye...
I thought I was subnormal, only
having the two standard eyes...
and not being a cyclops either.
where does this third one live?.
Miss Direction knew..she
probably kept it with the Maypole
that she wouldn't let us dance around
far too pagan for our Christian school
I wonder..did she teach me anything
that I didn't already know..

that I didn't already know
was everything
that fell before me
between the sheets and
on the streets
never having met
anything remembered
or forgotten
its all news to me
uncovered just once
then revealed dressed
for exposure to elements
of the eyes
crossed and dotted
for a tea...

for a tea he crossed the continent
others traversed the horn
twas times of great expansion
the world should have been warned
Europeans want to gain advantage
bypass that middle man
exploit and enslave all they can
building castles in the sand

building castles in the sand
children playing in a far away land,
sitting quietly watching the birds
and even the city slicker nerds,
eating a sandwich I stop to think
as I take a swig of my drink,
it sure is a beautiful day
thank you to nature I must say,
now its time for me to return
to work many hours left to burn,
but this pause has been sweet
my sandwich time truly a treat~

thank you Lord for food to eat
thank you for this beauteous day
where friends come together to play
sharing their soul, bearing the truth
freeing their love restoring their youth
gracious we are heart open wide
blessed are the souls who understand why

blessed are the souls who understand why
and pity the souls that continue to try
i aint shutting up until you explain to me why
how you christians can claim that you aint communists

for jesus christ and carl marx
have both made quite similar remarks
said what they thought despite the sparks
and challenged the greed that persists

Not an expert about Marx,
but do know he had something to do with social classes
Spoke out about wanting the working class
to revolt against others
Overpowering another

Jesus,
one who walked amongst all crowds,
all social classes
did speak out
wanting all to hear and know.....
they were forgiven...
no revolt necessary...
all empowered
