love the idea of tanka....

drumming words and sounds
a rhythm in my head starts
beating out my thoughts
sun rising this autumn day
feeling energy lighten

~~~~this seems to be the gathering place this morn~~~~~~

Carrying me back
to a place I thought I'd left
Thoughts fueling emotions,
once smoldering
now with sparks from within,
fantasies and illusions
of what might have been
Flames of pain
crowning in trees of hope
but perhaps once ashes
within an outside view,
the knowing will take hold
that its over.

stones for the foundation and
I became very peaceful

wow beautiful writes on this thread

i'm grateful that my soul ain't cold
that my heart feels the love of a friend
if to feel only contempt and hate
a true rushing to my own end

getting pleasure from a self-centered acts
hurting others cause you can
is this actions from a spoiled child
or just behaviors of a troubled man

woke up to grey air
sound of light rain is falling
open windows wide
let in negative ions
feeling better already

making spaghetti
ladysmith black mambazo playing
suddenly remember more from last night....
we know how negative energy
can pose as positive....
he said Spirit
can equally disguise itself....
can be camouflaged
and can appear to us
as negativity
in order to test us
in order to strengthen us

perhaps nothing is original
all from the bin
of archetypal thought
expressing feeling
we all share
plucked as if from nowhere
but perhaps is everywhere
we beat the same rhythm
of one heart

helping me
to laugh at myself

the blessings here
so much override
the pain and shame
some seem to live by....
words can not be taken back
so when they rear up for an attack
remember.... don't forget
there's always a witness in you
not taking effect....
sometimes we just can't fix things
with our inspiration and rhymes
and yet, the love felt here
and seen so often
will never die....not even when
buried in a coffin
forever living and breathing
timelessness.....the beauty of feeling

Beautiful poetry on this thread.................

i bow my head and turn away
there's really nothing i'd like to say
the peace is beauty,the love is true
these things i do,i do for you

in morning darkness i hear the ryhme
must sit right down here,invest the time
the salior arrives at his favorite of ports
your words they give me a resolution of sorts

she loves me
she loves me not
one is cold
one is hot
she left me
she left me not
me in ones bed
me on a cot
she holds me
she holds me not
one has a plan
one has a plot
she feeds me
she feeds me not
one tied a bow
one tied a knot
she woos me
she woos me not
one I love
one I fought
she kills me
she kills me not
one wields an arrow
one a slingshot
she soothes me
she soothes me not
one is loose
one is taut
she touches me
she touches me not
one is happy
one is distraught
she loves me
she loves me not
one I let go
the other I caught

Many more moons
before this one is done
comets will come and go
still we will be one
no longer counting years
no longer harboring fears
lost in the present pleasure
a continuum without measure
feeling that it's so
we both are in the know
there will be no others
bonded like blood brothers
I'd give up my shirt
before you I'd hurt
I know you'd do the same
all done playing games
connected in time and space
but lost in your embrace
ice is slowly melting away
sun shines on a brand new day

"it is only in the pain of letting go
that you experience the joy of return"

good words there doubtful..... yet so hard to do, eh?

just a resolution.....
to drop by and greet
a big hearted soul
that I am blessed to meet
in this world of words
outpourings of mind and heart
those of kindred soul
never to depart.

~~~~~morning hammy...... and all who visit and walk in your world!!~~~~~~~

yonder bounty shore
rimmed with weathered rocks
the night there I will moor
and dinghy to the docks
and with sea legs unsettled
I'll pay tribute to the piers
at the wharf side Keg and Kettle
I will drown in bounteous beers
and there I'll tell my story
of a passage most amazing
through the Straits of Glory
never more hair raising
beating 'gainst a gale
of towering proportion
three reefs in the sail
mast at topmost torsion
Neptune heard my screams
and paid them little heed
crashing o'er my beams
urging me to concede
to Aeolus I said "Fvck you"
have mercy on my spars
abandoned by my crew
dead reckoning by the stars
a tossing turning tub
sheets strained, about to tear
fingers feel like stubs
approaching deep despair
dreading a thunderous jolt
of hull against hidden granite
is there anything more cold
than this unforgiving planet
awash in a sailors dream
and mingled with his tears
echoing his blaspheme
and swallowing his fears
a bone cold shivering dread
oh death I am not ready
but the compass was well read
and ahead of me was the jetty
and beyond that the harbor lights
twinkling with my salvation
now I revel in the delights
of well-deserved libation

so sorry about the Clearwater "bump", Swanny. I spent a fair amount of my time as a youth around that glorious vessel; festivals, work weekends sanding and varnishing, chatting with Pete himself, never did crew on her, but my dad did. The amazing thing is how much cleaner the Hudson is now versus then. Thank-you Mr. Seeger!!!

Hope you get to crew eventually. Glad you liked my write; it was a true story from when I lived aboard in Boston. Plymouth harbor never looked so welcoming as on that chilly night.

this morning
i walked for a while
on lummi mountain
the steep trail
climbing toward
the western cliff
high above
the salish sea.
this morning
the trail was slippery
and the shadows cold
so i sat in the sun
on a nurse log
with loneliness
and love.
words are barely events
mostly they are
passages to deep life.
deep in me
missing bren and lili
i thought for a moment
their absence in my life
helps to show
why there are no leaves today
on scrub alder and vine maple.
but then i heard the wind,
and felt the late winter sun
on my face
and i learned that
in my life
there are always leaves
on the tangled forests inside me.
and i touched my love
and i know
that the sunshine
at my feet is love,
with her, is life
and so i stood
and climbed the trail
toward noon.

wearing our baubles
& bangles & beads
on masks of birds
wearing our sandles
of leather and gold
we dance
and we sing
we sing and
we kick and we swirl
with boy spinning girl
and girl spinning boy
for this is the eve
of marty grass
the night before
he becomes an ash
toot toot
boom boom

boom boom
she's dresst as a queen
boom boom
with her bosoms
bobbing on air
boom boom
he's dresst as a king
toot toot
with his thighs
toot toot
so naked and throbbing
with muscles, and sweat and hair
boom boom
boom boom
boom boom
strangers kiss
lovers kiss
marrieds look elswhere
to kiss, to kiss, to kiss

Tiffany had an epiphany
it happened the other day
changed her name to Golda My Ear
already with effect, I'd say

To not be named after a light shade
to not be mistaken for stained glass
to not sound like a pole dancing bimbo
or a debutante of highest class

Tiffany made her nose turn up
Tiffany made her haughty
Tiffany sounded like someone soft
or someone very naughty

So Golda it is and so it will stay
a harder ring to be heard
no more frilly nom de plume
you take her for her word

What's in a name you might ask
while feeling comfortable wearing your own
but if the hat don't fit the head
that it sits upon

then trade it in for something apt
a moniker more in tune
with the song you sing each day
just call me "Buffoon"

HAMMAAZING, it was not until yesterday that I finally realized that this was your home thread.pYour initial name must have changed through time...Glad I found you because I know this place is just like home if by your words built..:)

Homeward bound

Homeward bound tomorrow night
going back to lands delight
a place where memories take their flight,
a place beyond the sun..
Homeward bound tomorrow night
where once again I'll use my might
to finally find that missing light,
that burned so bright before.
Homeward bound tomorrow night
a place where I am free from spite
a place like this HOME here tonight
where friends are welcomed fun,
a place beyond the sun.....

Cool breeze of wonderment
Transpires my desire to smile
Alive and breathing I find
My heart thus beats together
Life growing strong and tall
Hopeful strangers enter my path
Bringing forth laughter and kindness
Cheer and politeness intertwined
Leading me beyond the setting sun
Beyond the moonlight summer skies
Beyond the pain of unforeseen cries
No longer hidden with my smiles
Today is the greatest day I have ever known
Strong, strong, strong
I continuously roam,
In this place I call

Hello U,
How is ur day going?? I love the weather down here on the great 'gulf coast', where the beaches are white and the ocean green as luck..I got some sunshine in a bag for you!!!!!BT
