Great writes NW...deep and penetrating!

oh!...and thank you! I am humbled by your words.

Today, is the day
that tomorrow forgot,
caught in turmoil,
lost in it's purpose,
holding souls
captive,
within it's web,
weaving it's labyrinth,
muffling the screams
of those few
desolate spirits,
still locked
in it's grasp.

energy in motion

Fingers carving sensation trails
Along skin surfaces
Lips pulsating and producing
Throbbing heat
Hands crying, desiring; minds of their own
Feet digging, arching, pointing, flattening
Themselves out in dance
Breaths, beat, cut, shorten, prolong
Creating music
Eyes close, open
Roll back
The body awakens
Memory stored
Energy vibrant
At every nerve end

yet still sleeping
the words
in primordial
swirl
will seep
through the Id
then leaping
snap into
the sleeping
synapses
reappearing
in the recalcitrant
reaping

The lunar eclipse the planets align
Lost is the light in a moment’s time
Tracing the edge as if to consume
The gentle light reflecting the moon

Lost in the universe amongst the stars
Hiding in shadows maybe on mars
Finding its way back out of the night
To illuminate the moon in brilliant light

This is a passage so frequent in time
It only happens when planets align
And when the moon is full in its bloom
With the sun shining and earth to consume

So take each opportunity to look up and gaze
At the wonderment of this delicate phase
Consume the beauty and lock it away
And take it with you for a rainy day

somewhere outside the illusion

Upon the dagger
time shall fall,
bleeding precious seconds
till ticking death
perhaps near the ecstasy
of it's rhythm,
dying before it's chime
leaving panic in it's wake.

Posted: 2/29/2008 3:30:27 PM
Clouded whispers form a dream
Trickle water running stream
Forming sand and sculpting life
Cutting darkness tempered knife
Future’s illusion crept in minds
Of the visions it unwinds
Carried deep within our soul
Until the end we now will shoal
Waiting patiently for an instance
Of conclusion’s wondered brilliance

Classic trip
Posted: 3/2/2008 6:54:31 PM
Vertigo round

patterns of sound draw us to a dance long before our feet ever move
chaos yields a space to anything intense enough to hold the ground
Rhythm is a marker made to map the last and next moment
tempo changes but finds emotion in the repetition of the range
seeking inspiration makes us listen to more than our own breathing
seeing past a reflection, turning will to finding a way.. to turn
senses blend before and after into the matching of motion and mind
this learning to walk is a bit*h

human vanity = insanity


I read the scientific news
I look to winking stars
revealing clues
but they glow on
enigmatic, abstruse
hiding in plain sight
a recent find
the universe approximates
a bubble
hmmm
the trouble with that
is bubbles pop
we'll never get the drop
on this
perhaps we live
in bliss
while many uncountable
light years ago
already some witnessed
the end of the show
with the speed of light
how would we know?
and when we look at stars
flung far and wide
it boggles to imagine
some have died
so really what contains reality
what is
or what we still perceive to see?
or is our universe
inside a sphere
that hangs as decoration
on a tree
or pendant worn
around the neck
of all we dream to be?

Cloaked and daggered,
in cellophane capes,
salt and pepper images
in fraudulent visions,
spectres of ungraced
alliegance,
pledging holyness
in mortal formations,
adorns victims
with the
halo of thorns.

The beginning of the end......
Posted: 3/4/2008 4:50:54 PM
When the sun sets upon our eyes
The journey starts beyond all ties
Forming distant place and time
A brilliant journey…such sublime
A fonder, greater, gentler, plain
Tempered souls forever unchained
Memories locked and stored within
Your body floats with shedding skin
Shedding darkness your spirit consoles
And fondly gathers with happy souls
Protected in solace bonds of infinity
Form endless bounds for all eternity



Yes...Joshua if you think about it…your memories have always been with you. Your intuition, urges and instinct just to mention a few are your old memories.

Bugs Upon Reaching the Light a.k.a: dead bugs in a lamp shade
Posted: 3/8/2008 9:46:33 AM
N&W, thanks...sometimes I'm just boggled by perception...take a mud puddle for instance, it will mean two different things to an ant, and a human...and yet, it is the same mud puddle...the ant may or may not be aware of the placement of the puddle in the overall scheme of things...and the human could be observed by something much larger, completely unaware of the smallness of it's own existence....

Practical Primate

on the fringes of a shared reality
where its as often a monkey with a man
as a man with a monkey
the haze of imperfection hides its face
in your dreams of ever getting better
its enough to make you wander

i can believe in anything that works
or until the bill screams out "duck"
cost isn't a factor til it is
paid for by a loss of whatever you undervalue
til its walking away in another pocket
or on another's arm

funny how that isnt


an open eye sees more than you know
shows how much energy judgement eats
tools left idle do a Disney dance around
thats an image people pay for
laughs are like that...expensive by choice
never by accident

building blocks of budding concepts
no way to run a circus into town
who tries harder the clowns or the acrobats?
the wire walker looks down on us all
he owns the moment
isnt that the goal or just the best way

to get another banana

Insightful Soul...

Hi Joshua, hope you're doing well!

Open and close
My body opens and closes
My mind's open and closed
My soul can open and close

Closing in like walls caving in
Sometimes for reflection
Sometimes it's destructive
The feeling is so small

Opening up, so vast and expansive
Every particle of soul releases
and attaches
onto everything it can touch

People everywhere,
moving in robotic motion,
as if marching

to a silent rhythm.

and I,
like the mime in a box,
visible, yet disconnected,

looking for a way out.

2 + 2 equals four,
maybe once, but
not anymore,

if delusion
and self dialogue,
equals some form of
phsychiatric disorder,

then, I think
it is safe to say,
that I am always
in good company!

my own!

Speechless .. nothing worthy to place here

Horizontal lines... the verticals bent
Circles in squares that they have sent
Words of wisdom without knowledge rain
Tender laughter that comes from pain
Contradiction within these words
Silent loudness with nothing heard
Leaving everything in nothing’s wake
Where authenticity is completely fake

We live in a world where illusions disguise
Where people tell truths with nothing but lies
Hiding their pain with tainted dark smiles
Big houses, fast cars and excessive lifestyles

The truth gets lost in all the red tape
Wishing to hide they completely escape
Back to a time when nothing was owed
Away from the world that they have bestowed

Back to living within simpler means
With happy homes and comfortable jeans
They would have avoided all this distain
And be living a life without all of the pain

hey Josh....good to see you.....



How true this is. And we are forever making distinctions… of which we perceive to be the only truth… inclusive of all truths


I think this is because we have to anchor on to some truth.....climbing the mountain of our ignorance...

There's a midnight train
running on broken track,
100 cars deep
as I look back,

Each car is locked,
and guarded as well,
she's runnin full throttle
on a mission to he*l.

The manifest blackout,
her cargo they say,
each car is loaded
with the "truth" of the day.

There's no way of knowing
which one is right,
as she speeds off to darkness
in the stealth of the night.

Blackened eyes,
in a blacker night,
perched atop the lonely bridge

and the river runs cold.

white tombstone visions
the final chapter,
from the track marked reality,

and the river runs.

and, in that desperate moment,
did anyone hear?
did anyone care?

A moment, a silence,
and the bridge is alone
with it's secrets

and the river cries!
