The Nameless One

Her eyes are as blue as the sky,
Her beauty is like a red rose,
Her soft voice brings comfort to me.

I wish to utter her name,
I wish to utter words of romance,
But my mind freezes and my throat has grown a thorn.

The words that are in my heart,
They are forever trapped,
They can not escape its' prison.

Why is love hard on me?
Is it my curse that I can not utter words of love?
Am I destined to always take the back seat?

It should be a crime to hide your feelings of love,
It should be a crime to not ask her name,
She'll never know how I feel for her.

Just once, I wish to utter her name,
To whisper words that make mountains move,
And that makes two separate hearts fall in love.

My crime? You ask?
Do you know what my crime is?
I never asked her name.

Hiya Bubbles,

So was he a player after your game
Or just too far off with his target aim
Better to learn quickly, then much too late
Who is worthy of your future fate

So give us details girl
Did he think he was all that
Was he less than he talked
Did you lay him out flat

Never settle for anything
Always reach for the star
Take hold of your dreams
No matter how far………

I love your voice-so gentle and kind
it softens my heart-enlightens my mind
you don't speak often-but when you do
the truth and wisdom-comes shining through

Morning Bubbles,
Hope all is great!!!!!!

To find your place in time
To understand the quest
Exactly why you are what you are
To know you’ve done your best

To recognize the road you walk
To distinguish why you’re here
To hold belief in what you want
And to walk right through the fear

Pre-chosen paths and lives
Destiny will lead you
Fate is your guide
Too happiness true…….

#2- I trust YOUR thoughts -and I do pray
YOU'LL show me YOUR light-and lead me each day
YOU hide me oh Lord-when things get tough
YOU know how to let me-get just enough


There was a time -when I knew YOU not
But now it is clear-how my soul was bought
To give me life-YOU gave YOUR SON
HE redemmed us all-eternity is won

Things happen for a reason
Why, if we only knew
But if they didn’t happen
New growth would not have grew
Live and learn
Is all we can do
To see the better in life
And what is true……….

Morning Bubbles,
I think we all need to catch up on sleep this week!!!!

Laughter filled the house
Extra company was here
We all had a blast
It was a nice change of gear
Went out clubbing together
And celebrated late
Over across the open river
In soon to be again, my home state

I seek her out each day,
We have never met,
She does not know me,
And I do not know her.

She is out there,
Where? I do not know,
Here I am, I am wait for her,
When we find each other, we will both know,
It was meant to be.

Before man was set forth on Eden,
Her and I were together,
We cried together,
We sang together,
We dreamed together.

She could look deep within my soul,
And I could see deep into her heart,
All we could see was love for one another.

One day we were told we would part,
It was a sad day, how could this happen?
And than we made a promise to one another,
To find each other no matter how long it took.

Today I have not found her yet,
I look into the deep void called the sky,
I know she is out there,
She awaits me, just as I await her.

Who are we to one another, you ask?
We are soul mates. . .

Hiya Bubbles,

I ran out of paint
And the landlord is late
So I guess it’s another coffee break
No mess I can make

So you’re going pro
Are we in for a show
How mischievous can you be
Just what can we expect to see????

All advise I give out
Should be taken with some doubt
I, myself had made some doosies
That could have been cured with some ozzies

So in light of what I may say
It’s up to you on how you decide to play
Just keep in mind
The world is yours to find…..

hehehehehehehehehe

One More Night

A man longing for love, asked a woman:

Forgive me, I have loved before,
I seek to know what love is once more,
Why are you so happy with him?

And the lady replied:

Let us talk of something that would move stadiums,
Let us speak of a feeling that would make your heart explode,
Let us see what others see; know this:

His caring would make hell freeze,
His devotion to me is higher than any mountain,
He would die for me a thousand lifetimes.
He loves me so, I could not make it without him.

The man asked:

I have forgotten love long ago,
It has abandoned me once,
In my lonely life, tell me will I find love again?

The lady replied:

Do not seek love, love shall seek thee,
And when it has found you,
You will know.

Listen to my words,
Listen to them carefully,
You will know, for sure.

Because, you will care for her so much nothing in the world will matter,
Because, you will go to the four corners of the Earth for her,
Because, the feeling you have for her will be so strong,
That if she were dying, You would pray to God,
You tell Him that would you take her place,
. . .That you would sacrifice you own life for her. . .
. . .You would die for her. . .

All is good today
I’m taking it slow
The sun is out
So outside I go
Up to 70
And beautiful skies
A spirit quest
Is on the rise
Waterfalls and rivers
Freshness in the air
Today is mine to have
Without a single care…..

I wrote this today as a result of going outside for a walk. It was a short but quite an amazing walk. So many things filled my head as I saw a blooming bush, the trees begin to regrow their leaves. The birds are out in force.

I noticed, wow, the role that they all play is so important we don't realize it. All we see are birds and trees and thats it. They have a purpose and they know it! I found myself asking, and what is our purpose? Maybe in time that question will be answered, or when it is my time.

Enough of the philosophy, here's the poem! Enjoy!

Untitled

There are many roads to what we in this life call a path,
We all live, we all die but we all choose a road to follow,
In some way, our paths are intertwined but do know where we are going?

The trees, the plants and flowers, and the birds,
They all have a purpose with a meaning,
To keep this thing called the circle of life going.

When the trees sleep for their season,
We are heartbroken at the fact they have shed their beauty,
We can no longer appreciate it until the next season.

The plants and flowers grow meek, and wrinkled,
It is a shame that we do not honor their beauty,
It should be ordained we honor them like our fathers and mothers.

Are my worries queries of redemption?
Am I plagued by a past that I feel I should seek out my spiritual self?
Is the road I travel on the Red Road? Am I near it? Am I close?

I seek that moment of spiritual and humanistic clarity,
Where my purpose on this is Earth is not a mystery,
Where my purpose has a meaning that not I but all can appreciate.

I touch your lips and all thoughts fade
We wander towards the bed you made

feminine lace abounds you
under a smile so true

You are a delicate flower
And I am the bee
Nectar to devour
Allow me to pollenate thee

When the Heavens and Earth was created, I was there.
When you question if I exist,
When you doubt your faith in Me,
I am will be here. . .

A little boy is about to be born,
He is scared, he was going to a new place called Earth,
For Heaven is what he has always known.

The little boy told the Lord. . .

Lord, I am scared Lord, please don't let me go!
So many bad things happen on Earth,
I want to be here with you singing you praise. . .

The Lord replied to him. . .

Remember, there with you I shall be when you take your first breath,
And when you are nearing your last breath,
I will be there with you when you take your last. . .

Remember, prayer is what I taught those who came before you,
To show you how to communicate with me,
Whatever your problems may be,
Pray to me, I will always listen, I will be there with you.

Remember, free will are one of my gifts to you,
Choose wisely your path in the life I am giving you,
I will be there to guide you along the way,
I will be there to guide you back on the path when you go astray.

If you choose the right path,
I will be there at the end waiting for you,
I will have a special gift with waiting for you.

I am the Lord, and I am here.

Good day all!

Lately, I have gotten into looking at Native American images, from the past to the present. There are a few images that stick out to me:

http://brainerddispatch.com/history/images/030504/CHIEFHOLEINTHEDAY.jpg
http://www.usgs.gov/features/images/native_americans/20.gif
http://www.kidport.com/RefLib/UsaHistory/NativeAmericans/Images/NativeAmer.jpg

Just like the pagan religion, which is of many, I admire the Native American religion and culture. In summary, they're all simple. Life was not difficult for them; at least this is how I see it.

But of the many images that stand out in my mind, it is this one:
http://www.movieposter.com/poster/MPW-14052/Cree_Indian_Prophecy.html

The expression of her face I can not get out of my mind, I do not know why. It is like the movie, Dances with Wolves, I couldn't get the movie out of my head for the longest.

The Native Woman

Atop of this grand rock shes stands tall,
She tells the Great Spirit, they have taken her land,
Their buffalo have been all but slaughtered,
It pains her to see her childrens eyes become watered.

Atop of the grand rock where she stands,
Through the sound of the wind the Great Spirit speaks to her,
He consoles her, He gives her words of wisdom:
Forgive them, they know not what they do.

With the wind, the Great Spirits sings to her:
Mother Earth and you are special,
Both of you share a sacred bond together,
You can create life, you help sustain life.

From her dress to her mocassins,
She wears them so majesticly.
The holy feather that is by her head's side,
To her long black hair, they dance proudly with the wind.

The expression of her face echoes Mother Earth's,
Does not the white man understand what he does?
Why do they have so much greed she asks the Great Spirit?
The Great Spirit leave no stone unturned!

But for now. . . .
She is regal, She is proud,
She is part of Mother Earth,
She is a Native American.

Pictures, A Reflection

The look on her deep brown eyes tell a story,
Her jet black shoulder length hair enhances her beauty,
Her smirky lips can bring a man to his knees,
Altogether, she leaves any man wanting her love.

Her well defined curved posterior,
The light brown color of her skin,
Her dark coat, it covers her modesty,
You yearn to see more, but you sha'nt. . .

You want her love? You want her attention?
First you must go through hell and back,
You must hollow the ground she walks upon,
To ends of the universe, to and fro you must go. . .

It is her passion that you seek,
You yearn to be loved by her,
In the end you must understand. . .

What you seek here, you shall not find,
And from what you find, you shall never ever have. . .
