DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee, 5
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell, 10
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

Something deeply kind
as rain is kind
and bright
like sun sparkling on
running water

Constant, like the love
of robins for each other
for the fledgling
As strong as a hawk's wing
is strong
meeting the edge of air

As brave as parenting:
what's loved can always
be lost
Quick as laughter
Tender as song

Good
and loving friend
I'm sorrowful
you are gone
The simple pain
of breathing in a world
where you are not

Yet choose, yes choice,
to see you free
and riding wild and clear
again
Wholly yourself, spark among
spark, along the ringing marges
of the nebulae

waiting for us
to come home

Just love eating here. Waitress? cafe con letche por favor!

Given the choice of love
Why would any one choose games?
Given the gift of desire
Why would anyone stake claims?
Given the promise of bliss
Why would anyone turn away?
And given the option of freedom
Why choose slavery’s way.

The fear of loves potential
Keeps so many safe in their cave
For daring to love to infinity
Takes more than just balls to be brave.
The fear of meeting expectations
Set on a pedestal high
Would rather feel the mind numbing
Than have to eat humble pie.
The fear of the change it would scatter
Throughout a life so well planned
Fear of the truth of the matter
And fear of the flames that are fanned.

Lover

If you are there
nothing I need do
but show my self

If you are there
nothing you need do
but speak

ah, woob, you have a nice bright bunch of folk here in your parlour, a reflection of you..:)
sorry to hear about your friend.
I'm kinda pissed at 'God' lately, but that's my stuff...
but it's kinda like this old wise-guy said to me, when I was complaining to him about taxes, he said, "I try not to think about it, but you know, I think there's someone upstairs playing a game with us, he said, there are days I wake up feeling wonderful, ready to enjoy the day, and then I'm struck with this thought, like a voice saying, wait a second you old arrogant fool."
what's it mean? I dunno, maybe when we expect, or presume things, we tend to face the reminders, that it's not all that way. Maybe just finding the balance, the middle, is where peace doesn't pay such high taxes.

The chili was delish, btw..:)

Simon

Simon sits in a sunlight patch
my pick of the litter
fumbling to the edge of the box
he raised his giant kitten head
focused muzzily through milky blue eyes
we fell in love
he is huge now with savage claws
to pet him guarantees pain
claws or poison ivy
as he winds around trees
my holstein of a cat
his fur is kept immaculate


he went missing once
I visited the entire road
unable to let the coyotes
or vultures have him
half the time he lives
under the neighbors barn
and has taught me,
(like my children)
to love with space
still I love to see
his giant green eyes
and cow kitty face

The light goes out
Numerous times in our life
Replaced by the moon’s inviting hand
“Come with me,” she says
“Sail by the grace of God
Beyond our sorrow
And into the ever reaching depths of eternity
I will be your guide
To the unknown
And you shall visit the stars
For my light exists beyond darkness
And my shadow is your bed
To rest your tired eyes
And weary soul.”
How many times have you examined the moon
On a sapphire night
You reach out to touch
The glorious light
Which shines
Even on our darkest night.

IM got disabled within two days, and after two months I hid my profile.....While I love being chased after by the man, the types who do the chasing aren't the sort to settle down with, they're just for fun......and you could say, well, just have fun with them......but then sometimes you fall, for the charming fun ones who are all wrong......
*************************************************************************
love application

applied to make like new
I resubmit this heart
dented a time or two
but all it needs
is an honest chance
and a brand new start
have room for my family
more people to love
if you're good to me
they'll love you too
we'll just go slow
and take our time
so we'll both know
it's true

Who is playing hide and seek
with the management
it's springtime on the pond
and love is in the air
almost a midsummer's night dream
eclipsing on the cresent moon
as venus runs for cover
in the merriment of spirit
no need to hide
no need to stop playing.

Ah, Brizo, troo dat! I have so many filters up (including a very odd profile -- as often as I've changed it, that is one constant: it's *odd*). But you know, I figure the one who makes it through will very much like me for exactly who Iam and that is a very good beginning, eh?

Autumn: yep! Spring is really working us all over, lol!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Before Spring passes

She's left us so full of hope
bright glitter
hearts longing seeking finding

Thrill in the ignition of enchantment
flames running in the blood

As if adamant that
all creation shall be paired
before she leaves us

Just For Today

Eyes open
Monolithic green
The colour fawn
Rabbits scurrying
Goodwill Mac hunting

Eyes close
Window of sound
A chair moans
Sheets crackle
Tympan

I'm here reading words over and over again
in my mind
finding different images
for inspiring thought
tired after a hot day and a long walk
I explored the paths
away from the houses
and didn't find one greasy spoon
for a cold ice cream
I heard the bell
coming down the street
saw little children gathered
beside the calliope
maybe I made a wrong turn down
to a street in London
the organ grinder
with cap on head
was teaching his monkey
to be a capitalist
a penny thief for justice
at the end of a day
my mind wanders
over many things
past, present and future
I was standing in the middle of a corn field
row upon row the labyrinth
twisted
the land was once free
the water plentiful
there were no signs on lawns
with poison written all over them
just land for the growing
many hands now gone
cut off at the point of a profit
the air will diminish
make sure you stop and say hello
to the trees
give them the respect
that they deserve
they are our keepers
bridal path shrubs
tiny white blooms
of childhood
bring them closer
to my lost "U".

Mr. Ed

to you
I gave my heart
so long ago
still sometimes
I wander nostalgic
through rooms of memory
you watching while I slept
confessing your feelings
and surprise at the depth
holding me slow dancing
kissing me into slavery
pranking my daughters
cooking with me
there has never been
again
anyone
like
irreplaceable
you......

Hi Yoko, Autumn!

Brought this here from first line last line where Om posted it. I couldn't comment there, and couldn't improve on it, or even use the last line, I was so dumb-struck.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

before rest
I fly there like a bed-time child
Where men drive houses

The space between leaves
When grass becomes, Sunday

She the gardens, tender dawns
And I the mallets brought in care

I fly there, like a bed-time child
Where men drive houses

a small boy enters with a joke
about a guy named "Shutup"
I laugh.

And am moved to tears
at the peace of family
of children at play
