First thought

When we talk this way
The back and forth of good idea
There is no separation now
We are all together now
Always were and always will be
It just takes a little push
And then we are all sailing free
Is not that what we rightly have come here for
Is not that what these guys showed us all to see
Build the superstructure of musical form
Build it slowly slowly
Taking time and great care
That all the pieces fit in just exactly
perfectly
And then you set off to climb
Climb that superstructure into the sky
And when you achieve and overcome
And the top of the mountain
you see
You run right up without a second thought
And fling yourself into the sky
No need for flapping now
Just think first thought
And you are free

I think I'm Going to Fly

If it's true
Then you will know
Right to the point where
No man goes
No man goes

No man goes
Down that road alone
It hurts just to watch
Someone going to stub their toe
on that same old tree root
Still poking it's head
up out of the ground

It's been done before
But never
All the way home
That is why we are here
To see it through

Walking to nowhere
Doesn't take twice as long
As it ususally did.

I can find my way there
In a moment now
Surrounded by Love
Inside and outside
And up on the ridge

Throwing my arms to the sky
I think I'm going to fly

standing on the shoulders of giants

Wlaking down the railroad tracks
Counting counting
Flipping that old monkey wrench
Over and over
I see no new tracks in the snow
Now we are where no one goes
Into the midnight breath
Frost growing on the walls
Wind chill advisories
Make me want to take a walk
Riding down the road
Through the night
Watching the highway
Disappear under my feet
If I freeze the scene
It blurs out to clarity
Lines of angels descending
On light beams
Make me smile
Everytime

Selfless Breath

With this loss of nothingness, we leave these surroundings a selfless breath
Moment to moment, act to action, these ordinary acts of spirit.

Destroy our transparent cage as liberation takes us to its center of definition
The participants simplify the inevitable, here forth throughout the darkness dismissed.

Quite as a hospital eventually the bedside struggle
Improves unto a condition foreseen as a continuum complete.

Relinquished the voicing falling silently out of mind
Into a formless neutrality, beholden unto a firmaments eternal repletion.

Outlaw ALL Dancing!

.
Please keep writing and always go back to it, you'll just get better and better!
.
here's an absurd thought -
your Supreme God says
outlaw ALL dancing

moving bodies to music
must be seen as evil

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
only Earthlings may dance

it is simply forbidden
elsewhere in the Universe

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
rock and roll is evil

it's the devil's best music
and dancing to it is sin
.
All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.

i am not sorry

i am not sorry for the things that are not here
i am happy for the things that are here
I am not wishing for things that are not here
I am enjoying what is here

in the city

It's darker at the bottom,
but atop is where rain falls,
clouds roll, and thunder speaks.
The pace is quick
and folks move fast,
but underneath
its easy to see
those glimpses and shimmers
of life
of freedom
of love
and of course, truth.
I'd rather spend my time
feeling the rain on my face,
enjoying my world of one,
my world that shows
life
freedom
and love.

Big plans and high hopes
Darn! Dreams don't always come true
There's always next year!
