my, oh, my

Sunset paints a blazing sky
Summer yawns and says good-bye
Seashore washed by suds and foam
May the four winds blow you home

Dark star hiding, in the sky
The morning dew begins to cry
Got two good eyes but still don't see
There ain't no place I'd rather be

Imagine dancing on the moon
Did you remember your ballon?
While sunshine day-dreams sing to you
From that shining ball of blue

Lost now on the country miles
Nothin' left to do but smile
It sure has been a wild ride
Wave your flag and wave it high

9/21/08 Happy Autumn to all

Walkin' On Water

I'm not worried about
Walkin' on water,
I'm still trying to
Stand on ice;
A little dirt can
Go a long long way;
If we're only
Being nice.

I do wish we could find our way
From darkness into light
Until then, this is me thanking you
For what you've done That's right.

So I'm not worried about
Walkin' on water
I'm still trying to
Stand on ice;
Our little earth
Can go a long long way,
If we're only
Being nice.

Circles Spinning

Standing alone now
Shadows come over the snow,
Smoke from the chimney
Lights from below.

Learning the hard way
That what's fair is fair,
Running back over
But you're over there.

Circles spinning
Shadows come over the moon
Dolphins swimming
To a past, come way too soon.

Mountains moving
Sparkles aglow in your hair,
I remember
It was right over there.

Circles spinning
Shadows out over the snow,
Planets aligning
Into the place that we both know;

Circles spinning
Shadows come over the moon,
Spirit's ready now
Not a moment too soon;

Mountains moving
Sparkles aglow in your hair
I remember it was right over there,
I remember;
It was right,
Over there.

Morning Song

I wish these days would never end,
I'll miss the afterlight golden,
Why can't we ever get it right,
Unscrew the lid, the jar's too tight.

Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you
Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you.

I want my heart to have a home
We need to steer clear of the stone
I wish we all could come as one
For all true love to send, Until then;

Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you
Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you.

So that big river never ends,
Over the mountain, around the bend
I want to be with you that long
Until our love, it never ends.

Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you
Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you
Until then, I'll sing this morning song, to you.

Easy to be Cool

It's easy to be cool when you're rich
That's why I like people who can do it on nothing
It's easy to be hip when you're stoned
That's why I like to get off on my own

So if it sounds like I think we're in trouble
I know that we both know that we are not
It's just that we could lose life in this bubble
With just a few degrees too cold or too hot

Crystal eyes lay forgotten
Another path that took too much time
Left to die out behind the others
The others which we are not.

It's easy to be happy in the fluffed up pillow zone
That's why I like living a little closer to the bone
It's easy to be foolish when you think that you are right
That's why I like to think that I might be wrong

It's easy to be cool when you're rich
That's why I like people who can do it on nothing
It's easy to be hip when you're stoned
That's why I like to get off all alone

So if it sounds like I think we're in trouble
I know that we both know that we're not
It's just sad that we could lose life in this bubble
With just a few degrees too cold or too hot

And if there is this much love here, when we're lazy
Just think what we could do if we were not.

Runnin' on Rocky Ground

Minister tells me where to find the pearly gates
Television shows me there isn't any time to wait
Cause we're sailing on the fault line
Listenin' to that motor whine
Never leave your lover blind
Leave you running for cover.

Stuck out in the freezing wind
Never live like that again
I took me a long time
But I made up my mind

That I'm living on the fault line
Trying to find a better time
Watching as I fall behind
But it's too late to run for cover

Cause we'ew running on rocky ground
Listening hard, can't hear a sound
You said that there was land ahead
Well, if you were lying, then I think we're dead

Cause we're sailing on the fault line
Trippin' to another rhyme
Seeing that we're losing time
But it's too late to run for cover.

Trains of Destiny

Reality melts into the manifestation of our dreams.
into this scripted destiny we wonder like a drifter on the road
Like a pirate on the open sea with the sun at my back I feel free

earths gravity, mixed with reflections of light define our existence.
I am the director, the actor, the set designer, the audience all in one
perfect flash.
All of mans desires are from the collective soul of humanity.
One Breath in, one breath out, one breath in, one breath out.
No control, scenes from a horror movie, obscure noises, pure WHITE LIGHT
I am the Creator, I am the created. Shooting stars, faces on mars
All built on the unknown. where do you stand?

Season changing, all our life’s are like train waiting at the station
"All aboard" echo’s through the canyon. we are the conductor, the engine, the cars, and the caboose while
fate and destine are our railroad tracks. Where we came from is the beginning
where we go is the end which way we get from one to the other is up to us.

My Desert Rose

you are my desert rose.
The Summer sun beats down on my shoulders and bar neck
the last drops of sweat evaporate. my mouth is parched
Creatures scurry for shelter from the noon rays
you can see the Heat rising from the sand dunes
You are the Water that I desire.
I am lost in the middle of the desert.
and your beauty is like that hidden oasis paradise
I see the Lush fruit hang from the trees,
running water trickling into a lake.
I am lost, and you are my savior.
I lay down next to you my desert rose, I am in love
The Beautiful scene suddenly fades to black.
then to a bright white.
I am dieing from dehydration, and heat stoke.
But I will always remember the last sweet smell
of my love, that desert rose.

Weathering the Storms of Love

Snow falling down, fluffy and soft.
Rain dripping, cold and wet
Freezing, feel the cold deep inside you
I feel you shiver from the inside, out. Heart Racing
From your soul to your fingertips and toes.
I see the pleasure gleam out your eyes, as you bite
your bottom lip. Eyes glazed, sitting, starring, sweating
Oh MY! I see a tear, "I am not leaving", I need to slip
out for a second. As I slowly back off, I see your goose
bumps, and the little hairs standing all over.
As your back is arched, I give you one slow passionate kiss while I
stair deep into your eyes.
which makes that cold raw feeling stop, and suddenly the Sun
comes out! A warm feeling rushes through you, like
a warm summer breeze. Your sweat dries to cool your hot
skin and body. WOW the weather has changed!!
From snow to rain, to sun and warmth, Through the toughest storm, and
the worst weather, I will always remember you.

Yesterday's Toast

My love, to you, is like yesterday's toast

a nuisance, all shrivelled and dry.

I'm burned and discarded, ash in the wind

raised up by your life blowing by.

It's a new day now, better targets ahead

and you've got other fish to fry.

And the saddest thing about this is that

you just never tried to learn why.

Love, to you, is an unreferenced pronoun.

Long rope, without anchor to tie.

A useful tool, handy for gathering

lots of things to augment your sty.

Thanks for the fun times. There were far too few,

but I'll remember them until I die.

Hope you can fill that great void in your soul.

Fare Well. Adieu. Goodbye.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
