the upside down slide backwards from the bottomPage 6 of 30    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30)
dear cat
so you came back
and soon left again
guess that was that :)
but please know
there is no shadow
where love does grow
so be all that you be
and you will see
if love's spark is shining
real love will set you free
and also don't forget
it's not about anybody really
but the love that thrives
the love that's always alive
for love is what you are
and everything near and far
and every body and every star
are forever joined

I hike in the country somedays
Like to exercise my outdoor ways
Watch sunrise from mountain view
As each day break begins anew

Some say she sells sea shells ashore
Guess I'll have to search some more
Found Mt Olympus on a Utah map
or Pacific volcano with a glacial cap

Best make a list of what to pack
Notta lotta room in a knapsack
Put on longjohns & Bermuda shorts
Doc Martin boots and lucky quartz

I wanted because my heart desired
yet
fairy tales eluded
I finally concluded,
my heart
was not such a good judge of character
rather it was flawed
in it's desire
far better to be content, than
trying to fall in love.

Thick brown hair slicked with Dapper Dan
Grey beard long gone had been the plan
Now my moosestache is milk white
Jest can't decide what looks right

Cranberry juice like Eric the Red
Perhaps purple Blueberry instead
Would carrot juice look obscene
when everyone seems to be going Green

Ahoy matey, for some time I've been a meanin' ta toss ya a line.... or two
Pardon me, but would ya mind if I fired me cannon through your porthole?
...and check if ya might wanna shiver me timbers, and if so ya should prepare to be boarded
Sooo..... How'd you like to scrape the barnacles off of me rudder?
That’s the finest pirate booty I’ve ever laid eyes on. and That’s some treasure chest you’ve got there

I think so many of us
take these things for granted


...and I think if a person was making a list
on that note, and putting it all in a great big book
these examples would only be the first line
and that list might just keeps growing all one's life
a choice

If all was apparent, recognized, realized, and not just taken for granted
do you think good would finally begin to triumph over evil?
...or might evil just begin to hone one of it's greatest strengths... deceit
...are we already there?....as per usual, the world knows no shortage of strife
and it needn't

....then, like you, I look around and the minds meanders. Eyes glaze
I too hafta quit being such a packrat, despite it not being easy
Not only do I wrestle with memories when trying to let go but also my own deceit
"never know when I might just need......" or....the excuses are rife (LOL)
such silliness

I think that one day you are likely to say
perhaps I shoulda gave a hoot
Once patrons have dwindled, there's no one to play
I'd wager said choice will be moot

thank you margo for your words above
reminding us it's still a place of love
but i can't quite accept this change in here
a place in my heart i hold very dear
yet the powers that be are making it clear
this forum's now hidden in the pof abyss
along with current events, religion and politics....

what did we do to find such a fate
suddenly appear on this peaceful lake?
why would we need to be put to rest?
is it permanent or a temporary test?
i fear it's meant to stay hidden forever
like a memory that maybe was never....

yes it's wonderful we can still reach out
to this sacred circle of friends when we doubt
we ever had such a place we called home
where poems and friendships were naturally born
out of finding a haven where we could all share
and send out in our lines that we really care
for the beauty of poetry and writers everywhere

Ya sure picked an unpleasant time of the year
to pull up roots and relocate them m'dear
but when all is said and done you'll likely cheer
"glad that mess is over". with nary a tear
And the world, .....well it just keeps on spinning

I just popped in to let ya know
It's truly sad to see ya go
The naughty pizza paddle bunny
always putting on a show

This place's future tenuous
A fate I still don't understand
But I digress. We'll see ya some day
back to spread ....... smiles in this land (LOL)

the upside
of the down slide
backwards
from the bottom
over the falls
in a barrel
of monkeys ?

I jest
suggest
water ballons
and big babbons
in wet t-shirts
with mini skirts
and no bikinis
beats beans and weenies
mustard on corn dogs
snoring or sawing logs

my Sperrys still have sand lurking
along with the beach chair
not hiding in my back seat
waiting for a camping trip,

the Hyundai is saying wash me
without some kid writing it
in the dirt on my window
crying for a rain bath,

leaves are raked trees trimmed
time to shampoo the rugs again
before it gets too cold
and no one can drive here,

a dusting still closes every school
people call out cause they can
bottled drinks in the garage freeze
while I wonder if Im really in the south,

my new job is wonderful
Im a pharm tech this time around
cant grow up I keep taking classes
wondering what I will want to do next,

as a few warm days get cooler
while the northern winds find us
not making themselves welcomed guests
in the land where chivalry lives.....

ox' I will be back with a philosophical write soon

perplexing contemplation
is but another season
in subtle cycling of days
almost an awakening,

from hibernations of
winter philosophies
turning back for light
yet reflecting the new,

might I let go of the leaves
binding me to this tree
like some hidden force
wishing for greener shades,

as others are unaware
they want to be auburn
welcoming slumber
awaiting rebirth

Things I learned in the past two years of my road tripping-

do not drive through western NC VA WV or KY tired
the soup of mountain twisty wind rollers will make you dizzy
KS MO IA and NE are still a boring drive
but the mile wide sunsets are GOD airbrushed masterpieces
WY UT and ID look way prettier with a little snow
simply kissed with accents like sugar for hours
(always get gas at every place you see a station)
WA state and CO are really full of pot smoking liberals
OR has some breath taking mountain waterfalls
TX is more hard core southern than I realized
OK is surprisingly Christian gun toting conservative
TN sure was a whole lot of fun exploring
DC really has a secret traffic skipping short cut
the NJ turnpike still bites the big one
driving in NY is as awful as the taxes on my house
and I missed my sweet NC!

two more states left to explore in this lifetime...
(I still wished someone would have driven to AK with me when living in WA)

The Corporate Screw (07/09/14- posted/written by me on another site)

twisted fortune cookie sweetness
wrapped in bilingual commuter array
washed down with chlorinated water
with not a word inside to pray

tempting allure of illusion
little lies are really a war
upon blood drenched hands of the worker
with only a soul left to pour

bring me your underemployed
starving to pay student loans
while monsters command obedience
minus complaint or moan

made fashionably modern by legalities
institutions are but a slave camp
crack that whip you will be happy
we command a smile till you cramp

one of the largest companies
with billions we certainly abound
but part time minimum wage positions
without bennies are the ones to be found

poverty is the new middle class hood
as war continues to reek tired poor enough
the paycheck isn't even made of paper
without enough energy to give a huff

the changing face of the corporate screw
wont even stare you back in the eye
it makes you beg or plead for a raise
then tells you you're fired good bye
