Happy 4th! to the human tribe...

once again, it's time to fly that flag,
pop a bag,
and remember those
whose freedom is gone
yet I can't help but wonder,
maybe in blunder,
exactly what it is
that I'm not dependent upon

Furr-therrrr

This summer will come and
Pulling ourselves out of our flower gardens
We'll find our favorite shed
To see that old group of men
Play those songs
That have composed
The soundtracks of our lives

We'll mourn those who have passed
And listen to others sing their songs
And wonder how anybody
Can appreciate this band
Who hasn't heard Jerry play
At least once in their lives

In the end
Who sings what
With how young a crowd
Who never smelled the master bouquet
Never does really matter
As long as you wore a smile
And helped pick up the garbage...

Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!

May your '72nd year be
filled with
everything you love best!

You're the poem
and the song,
in my soul, xo!

In Harmony and Bliss,
Sherry B.

Nothing Lasts

I agree
an excellent life philosophy

consumerism only causes drag
learn how to let go of the price tag

and when pain and sorrow become acute
simplicity should be the sole pursuit

by doing this we reduce our needs
to little more than spores and seeds

Transitory

night turns to day
turns to night
tide goes out
comes in
goes out
spring follows winter
summer follows spring
fall follows summer
winter follows fall
waking, eating, washing
working, eating, sleep
happiness, sorrow
happiness

it is all transitory
why fight against it?
at all costs
do not deny it
in this saha world
all is impermanent
attachment to anything
causes suffering
let go of your collections
and you can keep them

minus and closer

i hear everything
those aren't voices in your head
they're just the echoes of your indecision
don't ask me
ask yourself

i know everything
those thoughts going around in your head
trying to figure out what's right and what's wrong
don't ask me
ask yourself

i feel everything
wast it me, us, or them?
or was it you?
don't ask me
ask yourself

i am everything
why listen to me
i'm just the voice inside your head
i can't help you
help yourself

Hmmm...

Where have all the poets gone?
Maybe their out on the lawn
Or is that one up in a tree?
Their words of life might help us see
