been a day of rest
catching up on laundry
and taking it easy
cats here asleep with me
now washing....always each other's company
usually harmonious....occasional sibling rivalry

No one will ever care about me
The way that you care about me
No one will ever look at me
The way that you look at me
No one else will kick their leg like you
When I hit that special spot on your belly

to be back in the arms......
to have arms to be in at all
to find someone to hold
to stay warm with as the season turns cold
to feel chilly feet under the covers
to allow love to take hold
 Perfectly me

the calming harbor of his arms
deny the turbulent ocean
that would take a derelict vessel

a sailor polishes my brightwork
and repairs my shattered hull
I will seek the far horizon

yes, the blessing of having three
two sons and a daughter make my family
two not planned, one was...my bonus love child
all have come from a place where heaven smiles
always a miracle children seem to be
and nearly all start from our hearts and sacred unity

Many are the things in my life
That would best have been undone
There were three times in my life
When I would say I won
My proudest life's achievements are
My daughters and my son

some are sad
to see their offspring grow....
where I am glad
and just amazed
at any stage .....
that's really all I know

Wishing them happiness forever
as they wish for me too....
now as adults, well two out of three,
I can see they are not only wonderful company
they also truly and lovingly care about me
and care for me when I am in need

we must correct things
and not pass on our mess
as our ancestors did for us
if we truly love our children
we would do our best
now....right now....to fix this

problems never have just one solution, many are act one in a 3 act play
understanding has to come from grasping history
not just getting a handle on what everyone thinks
looking back reveals the underside of truth
like pulling a drowning man from the ocean
and never seeing the shark attached to his A$$

On that note Trancend.

Through out all of history
From now to back in the past
Someone had a quick fix
They'd pull out of their @ss

Remember Neville Chamberline
Remember that damned picture from 1939
The headline on the paper read
Quite boldly, Peace In Our Time

so many forget to search for past mistakes, perversely pretending to never make one
who doesn't want peace and feel love ? ..a lot of wolves laugh at your naivete
I just grin at my own.. Ghandi challenged a failing empire sick of its own sins
ready to listen to what soul was left..his way worked...
Don't look into the barrel of a gun held by your sworn enemy and pretend
that your faith in others will stop a bullet.. now as mistakes go ..thats a non-repeater

want testimonials? Tombstones can't talk
and losers don't write histories
or read them

Amen to that.
I hope that we have leaders that have a reverence for history
If not then surely chaos and mayhem will rule the day
The bright new key that unlocks the door to tomorrow
Is forged in the furnace that is fueled with past triumphs and follies
It unlocks a door thru which fools will never pass

guess acceptance is the key
though I plea where is the integrity
feels we've lost our dignity

is it pride or pain, or even shame
that I get down and beg
again and again

rules of engagement are
be careful....stay balanced
tipping the apple cart can mean
sometimes it can't be righted again
just told haiku can continue as before
by clicking on link at end of haiku 4


the question is, do i dare?? decided yes, for haiku I do care :)

feel imprisoned by your love
don't give me so much attention
try and control your passion
it's not me you love anyway
but a figment of your imagination

it's very still here tonight
cats asleep both sides of me
my typing does not wake them
the dark outside permeates my being
was hoping the light would be rising soon
for the dawn of a new day is always welcoming

For the dawn of a new day is always welcoming
Night has gone we start anew
The soft light of the dawning in hues of pink and gold
Touched with mist of morning dew
Perhaps today will be the day my heart is mended
Like morning light, be renewed

disturbed peaceful state
really relieved above poster
is no longer a member here
they say a group only ever operates at the
level of consciousness of the lowest member
it's time we all learned respect

The empty room where echos are the only sound
Listening for the sounds that were once there
Like the last guest at the party I stand alone
In a place that once was filled with sound
I say goodbye to no one as I walk away
And close the door behind me on an empty room

sitting by my side so close
you'd think that it my friend
but I hate its loud intrusion
when its message it does send
declaring that its time to rise
and its just too early for these eyes....

the owl flies silent above
looking for dinner and not for love
at home his partner he's chosen for life
a beautiful she owl he calls his wife
since spring his babies have tryed thier wings
waiting for papa and the feast he brings

to reflect back to smaller times
put them all together in tiny little ryhmes
brings a smile to my spirit's core
which in turn makes me crave for more
so i write it down on these lighted pages
and great friends join in,in different stages............
