THE FOREST AND THE WINDPage 123 of 151    (111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150, 151)
The White Cloaked Angel

I have withstood the test of time,
My many fortunes, my many tragedies,
In reflection, they are all sublime.

Why do not you see what I see?
Can it be we are from two different worlds?
Is it that in this life we yearned in our own way to be free?

In all that is good and evil, why am I still sad?
The night beckons, I see that Death is nigh,
He speaks words of comfort, words that makes one glad,

The burden of this life is lifted, I am relieved,
Death, the white cloaked angel has come for me,
Do not grieve, do not cry, be happy, I have been freed.

We Are Made One with What We Touch and See
Posted: 5/16/2008 7:59:10 AM
We are resolved into the supreme air,
We are made one with what we touch and see,
With our heart's blood each crimson sun is fair,
With our young lives each springimpassioned tree
Flames into green, the wildest beasts that range
The moor our kinsmen are, all life is one, and all is change.

With beat of systole and of diastole
One grand great life throbs through earth's giant heart,
And mighty waves of single Being roll
From nerveless germ to man, for we are part
Of every rock and bird and beast and hill,
One with the things that prey on us, and one with what we kill

One sacrament are consecrate, the earth
Not we alone hath passions hymeneal,
The yellow buttercups that shake for mirth
At daybreak know a pleasure not less real
Than we do, when in some freshblossoming wood
We draw the spring into our hearts, and feel that life is good

Is the light vanished from our golden sun,
Or is this daedalfashioned earth less fair,
That we are nature's heritors, and one
With every pulse of life that beats the air?
Rather new suns across the sky shall pass,
New splendour come unto the flower, new glory to the grass.

And we two lovers shall not sit afar,
Critics of nature, but the joyous sea
Shall be our raiment, and the bearded star
Shoot arrows at our pleasure! We shall be
Part of the mighty universal whole,
And through all Aeons mix and mingle with the Kosmic Soul!.

We shall be notes in that great Symphony
Whose cadence circles through the rhythmic spheres,
And all the live World's throbbing heart shall be
One with our heart, the stealthy creeping years
Have lost their terrors now, we shall not die,
The Universe itself shall be our Immortality!.

shyt.. thanks pickles.. I can't recall anything since Mari retired as my secretary.

I'd have written her something.. belated?
close enough..
it's just us

Short and Sweet

spirit walks
midnight talks
country folk
holdin their own
we've both seen catfish jumping at dawn
sometimes we just smile and sometimes we eat 'em
mari walks the red road
as well as anyone I know

She drove around for hours getting me the perfect cow picture a few years ago.
Even had to talk the farmer. hahaha God, I miss the midwest.
That's what I got for my bday that year.. lol.. a cow pic from Mari and one from Pandy. Two of my favorite nature ladies.. thinking the same.
I'll always love you, Mari
happy belated birthday

Morning all,

Thank you so much for the Birthday Wishes Ya'll!!!!
Sorry I've been missing for a bit. I had Surgery again, but am slowly recovering!!
My sisters cancer has moved into her back now, and the brain tumors are growing.
My mother who is a breast cancer survivor, is awaitng another biopsy result on her breast bone. My other sister goes in on Wed. for a double biopsy. So it will be hit or miss when I can be on.

When the moon is falling
And the sun can't shine
I gotta remember
All that is mine

Time is a word
With more meaning than thought
Amazing how much shorter
than I once was taught.....

Love ya'll
Sam

Okay.. you'd better not read this
don't want you popping a stitch
because, I just dropped in to make you laugh
maybe lie about my largest bass

I was sittin on the shore minding my own business
smelling like a brewery
it's nightime, I remind you
had the catfish bell on the end of the pole
drinkin my beer and swattin skeeters
contemplating playing with my peter
when the catfish bell starts a ringin
I went into a panic
well, a slow panic
I ain't exactly manic
southern thing
anyway..
I got to the canal before the pole went into the water
stuck my pant leg in cause I walked through the fire
and then I set the hook
wtf?
This ain't gonna be a catfish
I could tell by the way it was pullin
it started runnin and I started tightenin the clutch
three prongs on that hook and I tied the knot myself
I held on for dear life when he pulled me in
and I'll be damned if that largemouth didn't take me water ski'n
I held on
was twice upside down
drug me through a dam
and then back up again
I don't recall who got worn out first
me or that fourty pound largemouth
but, we ended up fighting it out in a tidal pool
I removed his hook, he split, and all was cool

Untitled

Her regal embrace brings my essence to ecstasy,
Her eyes tantalize my soul,
The presence of her body intoxicates me.

But does she know I exist?
How am I to prove my undying loyalty and affection?
Will she give me that chance to do so?

I am that flower in solitude in a big forest,
No one can see me, but if she opens her eyes, here I am,
Is it my fate to remain unseen for all eternity?

I ask the world, do you see me?
If so, please, take me out of my agony of forbidden love,
Tell her, I am here. . . .

Trust and Deliverance
31 May 2008

Happiness was to feel love,
a desire more than most
An envelopment of truth,
a heart made to feel pure and kind

To wash away the bitter taste,
and smile, in a rightful manner
Just to know and love,
where being loved brought grace

A gratitude of dilemma,
beauty and true faith
The trust and deliverance,
freedom to think and prosper

Take heart for whatever
has broken your heart
Will heal once happiness
does in forgiveness return

Evening all,

Well besides the storms on us right now, My Mother's cancer is back. My 2nd sister now has breast cancer. And the tumers in my 1st sisters brain are growing larger.

Needless to say, I spent the day at the ER yesterday to find out I have an Ulcer! Who'da thought???

I can pray for a rain bow
I can wish for Cure
To grant all my family
Their health to be pure

I go in August
For gene testing
To see if we carry it in our heritage
No time for resting

Hiya all,

Thanks you all for your support and understanding!!! God knows I need it!!

Dog, Will chat tomorrow!! Sorry I missed your call!! Hugs!!!


Lightning flashes
Thunder vibrating the earth
Moister engulfing each breath
Cosmic tears, changing worth

Blossom petals flowing
Within the Zephyrs Breeze
Cascading in the dark
A waterfall of leaves

Streams forming in the streets
Overflowing drains
The world being flooded
By steady down pouring rains…….

good to hear your smile
we always do when we speak to each other
sooner or later

we can find something to laugh about even talking bridges under the water
Mari's gonna become a water taxi driver
if I ever finish this dam.n boat for her

lol and tell those ass holes to make you something decent to eat
something that your ulcer can handle, yet requires teeth
chicken fried steak with taters and gravy would be sweet

your ass is gonna get fat
you know that?
and you'll get hemorrhoids too with your luck

moo to you

My prayers are with you mari




I can pray for a rain bow
I can wish for Cure
To grant all my family
Their health to be pure


Sea Song

Your unique sea song makes me wonder
Cresting waves embraced by thunder
As it roars and soars across the plains
Steadily counting our losses and gains

We give it all, each day at dawns light
We do not fade under the spell of night
Shadows cannot lay us low nor subdue
Sunlight always rises to pull us through

Even when darkness falls, bringing pain
We pick ourselves up and start over again.
Searching for light and more understanding
Lessons teach that us truth is undemanding

We peruse the starlit skies as they climb
Gaze upon the beauty of night sublime
And see it’s all a part of this infinite plan
That fate bestowed when our life began

Do the best we can and give it our all
And patiently listen for that vital call
We each have a place where we belong.
So carry on singing your unique sea song

Morning all,

Thanks so much for your thoughts, prayers, and lovely words!!
Ya’ll are my support group ya know!! I love ya’ll!!!

So my sister has left
For her vacation so dear
South Pacific, her last trip
I Fear…..

We’ve kept our secret from her
Until she gets back
So she could enjoy herself
Without any flack….

My 2nd sister and my mom’s journey
Will now begin
One I pray
They both will win…..

I’ve filled out the papers
For a Genealogist to see
To screen my blood
For my family and me….

An answer for the future
For all to heed
To prevent this again
Is what we need…..

So as the sun rises today
I can see the light
I feel your prayers
Ya’ll sent last night…..

Thanks so much!!!

Sam

You guys are the best!!! Thanks so much!!! Your words are helping me through this!!

Update: My mother is now having her radiation treatments started.
My sister who is the sickest, is now in the South Pacific, on what will most likely be her last vacation. But is having a wonderful time, even though she is in need of using a walker now.
My 2nd sister is having her surgery in 2 weeks, and will start Chemo right after.

As for me, Well I am trying to stay positive and I pray all the time!! I think shock is still keeping me numb!


Sun- rays graced my face
Like an angel in the mist
As the Zephyr whispers
"Tis all of us, the angels kissed"

A rainbow formed above
As the clouds parted ways
And through the softest hues
Gave hope for better days....

Love Ya'll

Good Morninng All,

Thank you all for all your support! Tough few weeks here, but reading all your kind words have really helped!!


Taking today for us
Fishing will be stress free
Sunshine and water flowing
The Zephyr calming me

Coffee in one hand
My smokes and my chair
Nature at it’s best
With pine bouquet in the air

My man by my side
My kids casting near
Sandwiches packed
In a cooler of beer…..

Once a child
No worries in life
Grown into a woman
And in time, a wife

Motherhood came easy
Friendships did too
Thought there was nothing
That I couldn’t do

A teacher, a nurse
A lover, a cook
But what I must do
Isn’t in any book

To tell my sister
Of her sister and mom
Will hit her the hardest
Like a nuclear bomb

Yet on Tuesday
I will give her the news
Knowing very well
I’m creating the blues

I’ll hold her hand
And hug her tight
And try to relate
It’ll be alright

Sometimes the truth
Is the hardest to tell
Not for my own sake
But for adding to her hell

I promised no secrets
And to tell her no lies
But I’ll cry right with her
As I look in her eyes……

yeah.. but, what did y'all catch fishin'?
my phone is always on
when you want a minute to forget about reality
and what about that "used to be a bridge" that's now a ferry?
you used that yet?

I bolted the last seat onto the big boat today
and your aluminum river boat is sitting here waiting
just tell me when to deliver it, okay?
I'm thinking fall walleye fishing in the bluffs if the river ever
crests and ebbs
dad's last fishing trip
I'd like you to be with

I'm spirit writing this for mari
back to her hometown of Stillwater, she's on her way
don't expect her delicate beauty
she's writing through me

and she thanks you and loves you for all of the support
there's nothing more comforting than a poem
unless, I'm the one writing it
but, I'll try.. what the fvck?
(made you smile)

I don't even know how to describe you scene
other than violently
and you are nothing but a moon beam
you amaze me

Okay, I'd better not get off on one of my tangents
noone reads the long hallmark cards
Mari's going to see her "healthy sis" up in Stillwater
and the other bookend is on her last cruise

healthy sis being admitted for a heart attack?
or is it just the tumors in her back?
hard to tell when the pain goes all the way through
the spirit quest de jour

anyway.. I'm not going to turn this into anymore of a ramble
she just didn't want you to think that she"d forgot about y'all
and not appreciated your support
or however you spell it

I love mari

Morning all,

Dog you wrote as best as it could have been wrote!!!! Hugs!!!
Drea, Thanks hun!!! I have many times!!!
Kobold, It was awesome talking to you!!!!

Oldest sister still in hospital with pneumonia, she is the one that has the worse cancer.
2nd sister planning her double Mastectomy in July.
My mom is doing Radiation and Chemo right now.


My head is numb
My emotions run wild
Life is to short
Power of attorney is filed

Doctors rushing
Got slapped in the face
Had to rush her back in
Her life in a race

Now she’s improving
But can only talk
Has to stay in bed now
It’s to hard to walk

I thank ya’ll
For your thoughts, prayers & love
And I know it’s all up to
The lord up above….


Love ya’ll

A soft yellow Lilly opens
As the sun peaks through
Small diamond droplets dripping
Remnants of the morning dew

A hummingbird sips
The flower’s delight
Darting and dancing
In though-free flight

And just as fast
As he neared
In just a blink
He disappeared………

they have a thing called a humming bird bug down here
I've only seen two
they are about twice the size or dragonflies
I have got to figure out what attracts them naturally
I want to attract them
the first time that I saw one, I was amazed
just a smaller version without the humming
neat shyt.. tropical rain forrest
run forrest run

Morning all,

Run Forest Run!!! LMAO!!
I needed that Dog!!!

Well my sister is out of the hospital and back at home.
She is doing better after having a blood clot in her lung and pneumonia.
She has nurses now that come to the house to help.


Hazy light blue
Behind tinted morning skies
Pink cotton clouds
Precede the sun to rise

Coffee by the window
Just me, and the moment caught
Tranquil and soothing
Lost in my own thought

Colors come to life
As the sun breaks through
The moment is gone
In an ever changing view………

Beloved Child.....

Darling child.....
come take my hand
I know that you
dont understand,
why all this suffering
hurt and pain
should happen to you
time and again,
but mommas here dear
and if I could
Id suffer the pain
you know I would,
so let me kiss the hurt away,
lie by your side till break of day,
I'll stroke your hair
and nuzzle your head,
I'll rock you gently
as I lay on your bed
and then when I've nursed
that days hurt away
and your quietly sleeping,
I'll creep off to pray.

That was beautiful, darlin
welcome to the forum

mari got hit in the face by a kite
I'm not lyin'
then her dress blew up too high
almost revealing her vagina

or whatever you call it when they're not open
girl part?
camel toe?
I really dunno

I've told her and told her to wear underwear
when it's windy enough to put the kite in the air
Marylin never would have caught her dress either
she'd have also shown her beaver

wiping a kite tail tear out of her eye
as the wind changed again whipping up her thighs
I could hear the kid laughin'
it was classic

I preach all time
don't cell phone while you drive
'cause I want people to arrive home alive
and always wear underwear when you fly
