Reflections

A lone man sitting by the way side,
The sun shining brightly upon his home,
Upon his right hand he brandishes a comb,
He combs his hair gently,
Slowly he closes eyes,
A smiles comes across his face,
Memories. . . .

The wind blows gently,
The calming sound of the wind eases his mind,
He remembers his first love,
The happy smile she always gave,
It always brightened even the ugliest of days.

Their first kiss was below the moon's glimmering light,
Oh, how he could never forget that night,
It was picture perfect,
Her soft lips, her warm embrace, her beating heart.
The memory of that night,
With him it shall stay forever.

It is said it is better to have loved, than to never have loved,
And those memories of being loved and giving love,
It is a blessing from God,
To be able to remember.

When we have lost everything,
Money, cars, our home. . .
It is those happy memories that will keep us whole.

As the lone man opens his eyes,
What seemed an eternity that night,
It is simple moment in time,
. . .It is a reflection. . .

Hi Bubbles,

All is great with me, hope the same is with you!!!


MY ABYSS

Came home early
Lights were dim
Internal thoughts
Just of him

Quiet surrounds
My world tonight
Head on my pillow
He’s in my sight

Can smell his scent
Can feel his kiss
Into dreams
He’s my abyss

Can feel his breath
On my lips
Can feel his legs
Around my hips

Can feel his heat
Down my back
Along my spine
It follows track

Through the darkness
The passion streams
All within
My nightly dreams…

Hi Bubbles,



Dreams are but an escape of thought
Our subconscious needing to vent
Be them good drams or nightmares
Is but the conscious being spent
Enjoy the good and release the bad
It’s only semi bound
For newer dreams will replace bad
As soon as they are found…

EACH BREATH

Learning to live again
Is all learned by what you do
In each breath you breathe
You are growing more true

Keep the positive in first thought
All else will come into view
Sorting out what you need in life
Will help get you through

Wakina Ozuye

Her eyes open,
The sun begins its' ascent,
Morning has arrived.

It is clear through her bedroom window,
The stars begin to fade,
Little by little the sun rises,
And the night sky begins to turn blue.

Today this little girl is happy,
She was promised from long ago specials words,
These words have a special meaning,
These special words are told by a select few,
Many hear the words,
But so few listen and remember them.

Today is the day,
She puts on her mocassins,
Upon her hair she places the special feathers given to her,
She is proud to wear them.

From the where the sun is rising,
The teller of words is on his horse,
He is coming today to give a gift to one of his people,
He has come to visit the little girl whom he loves dearly.

From her tepee she can see his is approaching,
She has a smile that no one can take away,
Her heart races, her skin is full of goose bumps.

The children of this village gather around this man,
For his words have a special meaning to them,
It is those words that calm the soul.

He sits upon a tree log,
The children are gathered,
His eyes are weary,
But his spirit is strong.
He awaits Wakina Ozuye, the Thunder Warrior,
The little girl is his favorite,
Because she asks the most beautiful questions.

The sun is upon them,
The children are ready,
Wakina Ozuye is ready,
Everyone is gathered together.

So he begins to speak:

Many times that I have come,
The special words given to you were called stories,
Today I shall give you another gift,
Like stories, these words will tell you many things,
They will tell you about your ancestors,
It will tell you about your grandfather,
And it will tell you about your grandfather's grandfather.

These words were given to me long ago,
And so now, I give them to you,
Say them to anyone you please,
Say these words to your children,
Say these words to your friends,
These words are more powerfull than a warriors bow,
. . .I give you these songs. . . .

Hiya Bubbles,
Hope all is great today!!!!



The lilies wilted
Yet, the mums thrive
The garden browns
But is still alive
You just have to know
It comes back in time
Because all of life
Is constant sublime

Precarious

On the tip of a pin
Paper edge so thin
One leans this way
Another tips that way

On the point of a pyramid
On the top of a log
Stand on a rock
Sink in a bog

Stand at the edge
Sit below doom
Walk the fine wire
Errors no room

Morning Bubbles,
Hows everything today????


Long conversations
Into dusk held
Relaxed voice speaks
Wearing through the shell
Hours going by
Yet, still the want to hear
All the words to come
As dawn is lifting near
In his voice you hear
As he travels on his way
A little hint of sorrow
As he would rather stay

Horizons open doors
While riding waves of light
Hearts and minds can drift
Back and forth through sight
Yet, what stays within the souls
Will make the spirits glide
On each others wings
Above the roughest tide
Soar upon the wind
Until you feel the inner high
It won’t be very long
Until you reach the sky

Sam

Every new day, brings light!!

Dreams
Just one more mornin, I had to wake up with the blues.
Pulled myself out of bed, yeah, put on my walkin shoes.
And went up on the mountain, to see what I could see.
The whole world was fallin, right down in front of me.

* Cause I've a hunger for the dreams I'll never see, yeah, baby.
Ah, help me baby, or, or this will surely be the end of me, yeah.

Pull myself together, put on a new face.
Climb down off the hilltop, baby, get back in the race.

* Lord, cause I've a hunger for dreams I'll never see, yeah, babe.
Lord, help me baby, or, this will surely be the end of me, yeah.

Pull myself together, put on a new face.
Climb down off the hilltop, baby, and get back in the race.

* Cause I've a hunger for the dreams I'll never see, yeah, baby.
Ah, help me baby, or, or this will surely be the end of me, yeah.

Hi Bubbles,
Awesome write!!!!!!!!!

FLY UNBOUND

Held in the temples soul
The sentiment awaits
Captured in the essence
The heart translates

All the sensations
Which fuel the fires
That burn within
Life’s desires

Explore the tenderness
Expand the devotion
Extend the spirit
Excel the emotion

Begin to live again
To a new heartbeat sound
In unrestricted limits
Fly unbound……

LIFE

If we live our lives in “what if’s”
We would miss life in its prime
Only thing to remember now is
Chance, is all we have in time

So much emotion to feel
So much beauty to see
Break through the weight of fear
Live to be free…………

Hey Bubbles,
How are you doing this evening? Hope it’s going great!!
This one was inspired by my young neighbor who asked me, “How does anyone learn to trust again.” It made me think, I guess it’s up to what we have learned from our past.

ROADS OF LIFE

Where as you walk
Through paths unknown
Chance profits destiny
In choices the past has shown

Lessons of the latter days
Provides the present knowledge
Keeping you from falling off
The pre-scene coming ledge

Teaches you to watch you step
And sidestep all that blocks
Imprinting caution in your mind
To look for loose laid rocks

Soon the path becomes
A familiar trail to run
Leading you to destiny
To find that special one

Untitled

The deep dark sky of the night is upon me,
My day was hectic,
It is my time to now to rest.

My eyes close gently,
And what comes to mind are the beautiful blue skies,
I can feel it now, the warm sun upon my face.

I feel harmony, I feel peace,
Am I in Heaven? Or am I in paradise?
There are so many angels,
They are happy, they all sing in harmony,
I do not know where I am,
But I am happy.

I can see those who have come before me,
Oh, how I miss them so,
I can those who are with me,
Oh, how good it feels to know they are here with me.

I wish I could be here forever,
No one is in pain,
No one is sad,
No one ever hungers,
Only to love one another.
Is this real?

I can fly, I go as fast as an airplane,
I can go to the depths of the universe,
I can see the undiscovered,
I wish you could see what I see,
Who made such beauty?

As one friend said to me once,
It is an aura of austerity,
All this that I see, its' beauty I can not describe.

My eyes open,
My world ended,
I wish I could go back,
I realize now,
. . . It was just a dream. . .

Hi all,

I hope everyone is doing okay!

Shyning asked me if I could pass a message to you Bubbles:

Her machine is being repaired and she says hello!

As for me, I wish everyone well! Stay safe and warm!
