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
and love.

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

When the big ones

When the big ones die—
well, we’ll never see their like again!
Sad then, a hole in the world,
never to be filled.

Building’s refuse hauled away,
Park, monument,
stone of artful design,
empty air.

The best?
Best thing, to die a small one.
Small things are always here,
no beginning, no end to the line.
We cover Earth with our small joys,
replaceable as rain,
shiny beetles, the many facets of sand.

We don’t go away, we small ones—
and that’s the biggest thing.

An Ode to johnman and stuman

Questions with no answers, voices going unheard
Life's full of little challenges and often vision's blurred
But meaning's there if you brush your hair,
Squint and take a looky
When in doubt just give a shout
Then kick back and have a cookie

(it was all I could do not to stick "nookie" in there somewhere ;^) )
MarkintheDark, still at the bar *burp*

I have a sigfile! -->
