Mostly H2O

My words now flow where
Once they had been dammed
My sense of myself
Commences its run
Atop a high peak
In the sound of snow
Falling, melting down

Plunging through gullies
Ravaging ravines
Burnishing boulders
Carving canyons clean
It breaks for the sea
Across a wide plain
Before entering
The estuary
Where I speak with you

MY DECLARATION OF SELF ESTEEM

I AM ME

IN ALL THE WORLD, THERE IS NO ONE ELSE EXACTLY

LIKE ME EVERYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF ME IS

AUTHENTICALLY MINE BECAUSE I ALONE CHOOSE IT-

I OWN EVERYTHING ABOUT ME MY BODY, MY FEELINGS,

MY MOUTH, MY VOICE, ALL MY ACTIONS, WHETHER

THEY BE TO OTHERS OR TO MYSELF- I OWN MY

FANTASIES, MY DREAMS, MY HOPES, MY FEARS- I

OWN ALL MY TRIUMPHS AND SUCCESSES, ALL MY

FAILURES AND MISTAKES BECAUSE I OWN ALL OF

ME, I CAN BECOME INTIMATELY ACQUAINTED WITH ME-

BY DOING SO I CAN LOVE ME AND BE FRIENDLY WITH

ME AND ALL MY PARTS- I KNOW THERE ARE ASPECTS

ABOUT MYSELF THAT PUZZLE ME, AND OTHER

ASPECTS THAT I DO NOT KNOW- BUT AS LONG AS I

AM FRIENDLY AND LOVING TO MYSELF, I CAN COURAGEOUSLY

AND HOPEFULLY LOOK FOR SOLUTIONS TO THE PUZZLES

AND FOR WAYS TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ME- HOWEVER I

LOOK AND SOUND, WHATEVER I SAY AND DO, AND

WHATEVER I THINK AND FEEL AT A GIVEN MOMENT IN TIME

IS AUTHENTICALLY ME- IF LATER SOME PARTS OF HOW I

LOOKED, SOUNDED, THOUGHT AND FELT TURN OUT TO BE

UNFITTING, I CAN DISCARD THAT WHICH IS UNFITTING, KEEP

THE REST, AND INVENT SOMETHING NEW FOR THAT WHICH I

DISCARDED- I CAN SEE, HEAR, FEEL, THINK, SAY, AND DO I

HAVE THE TOOLS TO SURVIVE, TO BE CLOSE TO OTHERS,

TO BE PRODUCTIVE, AND TO MAKE SENSE AND ORDER OUT OF

THE WORLD OF PEOPLE AND THINGS OUTSIDE OF ME- I OWN ME,

AND THEREFORE I CAN ENGINEER ME- I AM ME AND I AM OKAY

New directions
Say it out loud
Then picture them clad

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,

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
