Anything Goes...Page 8 of 188    (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, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
Half an aisle, half an aisle,
Half an aisle onward,
All in pursuit of some tofu and veg
Rode our Pickles triumphant.
"Forward, the Cuke on her motorized scoot!
Charge for the sales," she said:
Into the crowd of terrified shoppers
Rode our Pickles triumphant.


"Forward, the Cuke on her motorized scoot!"
Was there a man not afraid?
Not tho' the Manager knew.
Someone had blundered:
Theirs was not to make reply,
Theirs was not to reason why,
Theirs was but to do and die:
Into the crowd of terrified shoppers
Rode our Pickles triumphant.


Oakvilleans to the right of them,
Oakvilleans to the left of them,
Oakvilleans in front of them
Volleyed and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell,
Rode our Pickles triumphant.

Oakvilleans to the right of her,
Oakvilleans to the left of her,
Oakvilleans in front of her
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that fought so well,
Came thro' the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of our Pickles triumphant.

With apologies to Lord Tennis Anyone?

A slave to emotion
Fooling myself with dreams
Hope slipping through my heart
Nothing as it seems

Wanting what cannot be
But grasping all the same
The warm,wet wishes
of my Unreality.

A storm rages through my mind
It lashes at my soul
And holds me still,unmoving
In its brittle afterglow

Crisp mornings, breath almost frozen
walking on a crunchy carpet of leaves
glorious slashes of colour
soften the starkness of the trees
Woodsmoke spiralling up in the air
a skin of ice on the lake,
reflections glittering in a far away sun
It would appear that
Fall, is here
Where has summer gone?


Lovely, Dude!

Some cry, dear briney one,
from gladness and some
from the sheer
goodness of their hearts.

I imagine your
tears of empathy
fall, sometimes,
on the wounds of those
who need them,
and are comforted.

Chthonic:


I am my drug and my addiction
I am my pain and it's infliction
I am the Devil who made me
Yet somehow
I am the angel who will save me


Even though I’m uncomfortable with devils and angels even as metaphors, and somewhat hysterically so at the thought that anyone believes in them supernaturally,

Man, that’s a good poem!

And if you will pardon me for an adapted metaphor of my own, Brevity is next to Godliness!

The sound of one hand clapping
Is heard, In the moment, Right before the touch.


In the calling together of star crossed souls,
Answering each other in their dreams,
The sound of one hand clapping
Is felt, In the moment, Right before they meet.

The sound of one hand clapping,
Can truly be heard anywhere,
That one may dare,
To reach out to the universe,
And await response.


The vibration of one heart
in love with another
Is as mystic as I care to get.

The heart, the literal heart
pumping blood and oxygen through veins
and arteries is mystery enough
for me...Although possibly
I dread my competence to deal
with any others...

The vibration of one heart opening
to another is like the after-effect
of the big bang
when everything reached out
for everywhere.

And is reaching still...

The poet tree
has roots as well as branches.
The branches sprawl out
every which way, some
reaching for the sun,
in the one season
withered and yet bearing fruit.
Some dancing, some asleep,
but the roots, the roots
go deep.

Anything goes...Om's Poet-Tree
Posted: 11/26/2006 12:49:41 AM
Under the 'ol Om tree
Thunder beckoned me
To glance askance at willow height
Brew of winter, her fical might
Some said run but I just smiled:
Tea: almost done, and this too wild.
I'll make soon haste and join inside
Smile, from the barn, my friends beside
Girl I liked shaken, not stirred
Whirls. The skirt: never again heard.


Nice place Om. Kind of caverny. Nice place for budhists and archeologists. I tried my hand at that .... thingey-mahgig type of poem you guys were talking about earlier, but just did it with words. And apparently pof doesn't allow extra spaces added. Oi. See if anyone can find it then.

Hiya OM, Mo, Curly,

Hmmmmm, food for thought

Overlooked

The mist in the night air
That forms the sweet morning due
All the different views
In all eyes seen through

The pollen on the grass
That fell from the flowers birth
The day it opened in bloom
To grace this unseen earth

The shadow that’s with us always
Just not visible during the day
Yet always walks besides us
Never far does it stray

The tears that shed inside
All of those that harm
Covered up outside
By their make believe charm

All in all, it comes both ways
The good and the bad
Couldn’t be noticed without
The happy and sad……..

Look around and see the beauty you live within…. Yourself…..

True Love
Posted: 12/2/2006 7:49:56 PM
To love that much, I'd run a thousand miles,
fall a thousand feet, die a thousand deaths,
cry a thousand tears, smile a million smiles,
snap my heart into a thousand pieces and make it grow a thousand times bigger.

To love that much will take you too new places you'll never want to leave.
To love that much will crush you in so many ways you'll pray for it to end a thousand other ways.

Love cannot be shown, it cannot be measured, it cannot be spoken of, but it can be felt.
Felt in so many ways. Felt in hate, felt in jealousy, felt in sadness, felt in despair, felt in happiness,
felt in times of need, felt in times when you'd rather forget, felt in the end and felt every second of every day.

It will throw you into the sky and make you feel so free, alive, happy and high.
It will let you fall and smash into the ground.
It will crush you slowly and destroy every part of your body,
but yet you’ll still crave it, need it, even though we all know what the ending will be.

To take the risk of all that pain just for the happiness to love, and to love that much is insane,
but the best thing in the world is to love that much. And that love can never die.

To be born and die, to fight so hard and climb so high, to fall so fast and hit so hard, to take the risk,
to take the dive, to withstand the pain, to be unable to move by such happiness.

These are the things I could never hate. No matter how hurt, no matter how hard I try to forget, I need it.
As much as I fight it every time, I always take the pain.
The pain is worth the happiness and the many joys of love.

And without such happiness and joy, I would be more dead inside then you would ever know.

Bitterness of a Loveless Life
Posted: 12/2/2006 7:50:28 PM
Soon there will come a day,
I shall regret all decisions made,
But be that as it may,
I shall love you always.

And so as shame covers my weary eyes,
I shall enlighten you on my niggling lies,
I am a person you would not recognize,
But still, I shall love you till I die.

Honesty I did not frankly perform,
And thus abruptly our world had been torn,
For this I am stricken by scorn,
And for our love, I do so morn.

And truth, for it to be told,
If I may be so bold,
I had a dream so diffidently sold,
In exchange for a life so bitterly cold.

And now as I remain figuratively bent,
Regretting all measures of past events,
Of a life gone absurdly mordant,
I find myself predictably insolent.

For all this I do so pertinently express regret,
I am not deserving of any good I shall beget,
Thus an eternity of shameful disrespect,
Seems more fitting for me to accept.

Thank you Alyosha! It was written several years ago, but still remains a favorite, to myself and to friends.

Thanks again!

I wondered what the hell OM was talking about when
he mailed me. Now I know.

So this 40 something year old white guy walks into a bar...
Orders a beer and gets a green egg from the jar
Takes a pull off the draft whilst salting his egg
Hands back the mug, and again lowers the keg

Whilst sucking his egg, he started to dream
He lost more than a score, his eyes turned to brown from green
Gets a bachelors is social services, like a BA is shit
Took another puff on the egg, a much larger hit

He rode the magic barstool, grey hair turning black
It turned out that crazy egg, was laced with chicken crack
When the ride was over, he wondered why he'd spent
Time writing about education, and then mispelled "common sense"

the last ride is very long
I want to close my eyes but I can't sleep
seeing all that pass me in my journey
everything seems so calm and quiet, not a peep.
the anticipation builds up
as we climb the hills, that's oh so steep.
adrenaline pumping, muscles tensing
as we trek the valleys, in the earth that's deep
the trip is over, and the end is here
in the ground bodies are laid down in heaps
and like the souls before me,
I lay down as my lifeforce seeps
