When the rainbows swim up elk creek
You can almost hear the sound of them squeek
As they rise through the tide and quickly fly by
On currents of air blowing high in the sky

When the rainbows swim up elk creek
You can almost feel them beneath your feet
Colours galore like oil on the shore
Twirling in eddies that gurgle galore

When the rainbows swim up elk creek
The elk start running in a rhythmic beat
Galloping by and catching your eye
Lifting you high as they wave goodbye

Was it in a fairy tale or perhaps a dream
Where the wicked witch became a light being
Releasing all the poison she held
Like a blacksmith she had to unweld....

Her double edged sword that was out of control
Slicing too sharp for anyone to hold
What would it take for the curse to unfold
Until it was done with no more to scold

So part of me is here to leave behind
Pages of words that came from my mind
Poetic musings concise and streamlined
From years gone past for someone to find

Or maybe just me trying to see
How freedom of speech here can be
Escape from the energy wrecking this country
Or maybe I truly write just for me

Or maybe I'm trying to find a way
To remember the light that does not stay
To release the things that don't feel ok
Or just have some fun like in the old days

Wishing old times would come back gone erase
Can't even recognize now the human race
It's such a mess and governmental disgrace
When everything is about ego and place...

We must wake up from the mess we're now in
Not sure why there's not enough to impeach him
I know the country's divided between the haves and have nots
But it's not hard to see the disconnection of dots...

Searching endlessly bright lights come true
Open to let invisible rays come through
Thought I said goodbye to that trail
Thought it was something I had set sail
Free to be whoever they wished
Decided we were not compatible fish
Though did not meet here in this pond
More traditionally we happened upon
The other's wandering energy
Searching for one who's love flowed free

Free me as the breeze
To see trees sneeze
Dropping all their leaves
Before the Winter freeze

Fire hues that lift the blues
Fall's reward for Winter dues
Rising on the tide so high
Wondering will we survive?

When the truth told doubt it had nothing to fear
Soon we were targets and had to change gear
Another shooting from one who had lost the plot
Took up his multiple arms and they all got shot

What will it take for us to end the gun race
Has totally taken over with such disgrace
No guns at all is my answer to this pain
Feeling deeply the shame of this game

Gasping for fresh air, sinking, gone down
Titanic moment brought a tear and a frown
Fairy tales no longer came into sight
Disney was done, this was real life

Ships like that were not meant to sink
Breaking hulls on floating ice rinks
Bad luck for those on her first journey
Crossed the ocean to become an obituary

Day darkness turned into pure light
Auric colours were a sight to delight
Energy passing through the great rays
One could feel love no matter their age

Perhaps it was a dream or a grand stage
Imagined contentment beyond any rage
Would we wake up again and have turned back the page
Or had we grown into real men and women free of the cage?

Speeding fast forward foreshadowing the future in reverse
If only we could turn around this crazy circus
Hurricanes bringing tremendous rain
Doesn't stop this world from going insane

When the powers that be don't want a free humanity
Can see they are trying to return us to slavery
Holding us ransom for clean land and air
While ocean temperatures soar, they don't really care

What's it gonna take for them to awake
When they hold all of our lives at stake?
When will they learn if they don't want to burn
Must take responsibility for the world we create!

Wearing rain coats and waders to stay dry
Helped with the flood til I started to cry
Would not give up, just had to try
Rescue the few who could not ask why

Saved the pets who's humans had left
Caught in a lot of neighborhood shipwrecks
Some were damaged beyond recognition
Chemical warfare is strong ammunition

Though best viewed from atop the Cape of Good Hope
If you're staying on sea level to get the ocean scope
Come to Cape Cod where there's lots of hemp rope
The place to be free no matter your sexuality
The place to escape on ocean or lake
To sit under a tree when hot and sunny
Here the land luckily kept its natural beauty
Even the power of the ocean brings tranquility

Only listening to facts that I want to believe
Cuz all the rest causes distress and a need to grieve
What happened to this place filled with daily disgrace
Not sure where to go to create a different space

Once upon a time far away I'd have gone
Back to the land I had previously planned
To the mother country and the EEC
But it all changed with Brexit disastrously

Public parks and private beaches that charge fees
Is there anything left that really is free
They say love does not charge usually
But I beg to differ, honestly....

May not pay with actual money
May pay with another commodity
Might pay with giving your energy
Might pay to get some company...

Yes, nothing these days is for free

I opened we're gonna need more port-a-potties
Especially for the many sweet hotties
Drinking up yummy hot-toddiies
Warming their trim and too slim young bodies

While the men being tough drink the heavy stuff
Even shots of straight whiskey are not enough
To warm the****es of their heart's bluff
Really they drink cuz they feel too much

Jingling keys stop a baby from crying
A sensitive line gives me hope to keep trying
To not give up in the face of these catastrophes
Even though I keep hearing of lies and atrocities

Even though I can't handle listening to that man
Or his nasty spokeswoman who passes down the plan
Can't help but wonder why these people seem to be
Full of anger and resentment and instability

Everyone wants credit but nobody takes the blame
But if you thought you were private, should be ashamed
No one is free from being a commodity
Selling us off as shares in a lotttery

Taking us far through a marathon race
It's a wonder we ever get out of this place
Imprisoned in life that's not free to survive
We use what we can to just stay alive

What do ya think about this weather?

It's gorgeous here do I dare say
Feel a bit guilty with the hurricane fray
Too many are homeless or just shells of homes left
The power of water will drown us all yet

The oceans are warming beyond a safe spot
Hence the crazy weather we recently begot
Enormous storms that just hover and hang
Creating such power hits the land with a bang

Fluid like water yet light and airy
Mixed with earth and fire and a bit of canary :)
All the elements wrapped into one
Created from molecules and the sun

Humans they say are the top of the chain
But that belief started this incorrect frame
Believing we're here to see what we gain
Instead of giving, too many want fame

I'm not quite sure where this poem is going
Home from work and my energy was flowing
But now I've stopped to write these lines
Just elements and the sun created all kinds

Not quite sure where my life is going
Patience is waning as my age is growing
Want to stop working so much these years
Will take a few more before I can change gears

^ welcome

with thoughts of the present climate of life in the world, and the recent hurricanes and aftermath that will take years to recover, if at all...

Running thoughts stuck a slowdown pace
Releasing the trap of the eternal race
Running on empty yet won't erase
The need to keep up the great chase

Forgetting what's really important in life
Gotta find some way to release the strife
With homes destroyed not worth the price
Of ending the love of a good husband or wife

Time stands still in only our dreams
Once upon a time we felt the light beams
Opening all hearts to form one team
Reaching the core of our being

Stockpile donated blood
Buried in the mud
Lost in all the confusion
Now part of the pollution

Will take years to right the mess
Many will die just from the stress
So what will it take to impress
For the government to repress

The way they are destroying the land
Clean water and air are in such demand
Where we haven't touched for ever more profit
We really have proof we're ruining the climate

Isn't it now obvious
Warm oceans are what's causing this
These hurricanes are part of the game
Where profit drove everyone insane

Injecting paralyzing agents into the face
To stop aging and become a disgrace
Where people are used or life is refused
Suspect even the pres as a boy was abused

For disrespecting apollo's daughters
So many have been slaughtered
If not physcally, then killed at heart
Forsaking others became a dark art

Losing sight of all compassion
Rising hate seen in action
As if it's what we are here to be
But hate will never set anyone free

Like the ark made so long ago
When similar climate was rocking us so
Taking us back to what we lack
Lost understanding of where we're at

Now it's cool to be on attack
Keeps sending us off track
Losing sight of all but the fight
I pray wrong does not win over right

Sometimes happens quickly or may take years
Finding a way to release our fears
It's not just the mind that really clears
But the heart's compassion opens our ears...

To a deeper song that rises within
A sound for solo or duet singing
Brings us closer to all we hold dear
Just gotta love and not listen to fear

Floods of thoughts trapped in pain
Shrink with the coming hurricane
Three in a week keep rising again
Reminding us always life can end

Some say the gods are angry
We're driving them crazy
Because we've grown lazy
With our love...

But it runs in our blood
So with the coming flood
We pray the way to survive
Is feel blessed to be alive

Guys against other guys with children?
Posted: 8/29/2017 4:41:42 AM
Don't know if girls are welcome here, but felt to add just a couple of points. First it's a sex and dating forum, so this could come under dating. And second, it sounds no different than guys not wanting to date women with children either - happens all the time. I accept it as their preference, not anything they might be hung up on... just like I would prefer these days not to date anyone with live-in children, now my own have grown up and flown the coop.
