Hopes & dreams

Long ago
Far away
In the Garden
We did play
Danced the starry nights away
All I wish
All I pray
We may do it again someday

some art&music with that poetry?

ok, i think i did this right, so if you have tabbed browser,

you can go to :

http://harmoniousgeometry.spaces.live.com

to see the art (39 new mandalas up yesterday),
and on an underneath tab, you can go to

http://myspace.com/lavalur

and the music should play while the pictures show. if you scroll
below the mandalas, the poems should be there.
I think you can download any and all. enjoy, free idea

More than you can chew

You can come out now, wearing a smile
Or you are welcome to sit in a pile
But don't you think that maybe this time it's true
You might have bit off more than you can chew.

I expect in the end, that you really don't think so,
But at least now you know, that I really do,
And after all is said and done
It doesn't matter who's to blame,
Or even who loves who,
Cause it all stays the same;
Yeah, it all comes out in the end
And what you lost was your only friend.

So, when the final notes have sounded
And through the final corner you have rounded
What comes out are only grass stains
Washed and rinsed clean by the rain
Maybe you feel that everything is brand new

But don't you think that maybe this time it's true
You might have bit off more than you can chew.

Pretending

Tonight I'm feeling lonely, and wishing you were here
laying right beside me. I ache when you are near.
But you're so many miles away right now,
so far, and yet so near.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.
It might not seem like much, but it really is a lot.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.

Seeing your sweet face, and your smile that's so kind,
I just can't shake the image, you're always on my mind.
To feel your arms around me
our bliss all intertwined.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.
It might not seem like much, but it really is a lot.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.

You're right with me in my dreams,
so very real to me it seems.
I can't believe that you aren't actually here.
Locked deep in love's embrace,
my heart begins to race.
My love for you just couldn't be more clear.

You're not with me but you are, you're never very far.
I think of you and then, well, there you are.
I don't have you but I do, and tonight
that will have to do.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.
It might not seem like much, but it really is a lot.
Sometimes pretending is all you've got.

Sometimes pretending is all you've got.

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

True wisdom

True wisdom, when it comes
It comes so rarely
Light splinters
Through the window
And it's so scary.
But just for a moment
And then off again
Into the stratosphere;
Floatin' the pilot
Of my dreams,

How could I tell you
Which way to go
When you know
That I don't know
How could you tell me
Which way to spin
When I see you fallin' in.

True Wisdom, when it comes
It comes so rarely
Light splinters throught the window
And it's so scary,
yeah it's so scary.
But just for a moment
And then off again
Into the stratosphere

How could you tell me which way to go
When I know that you don't know
How could I tell you which way to spin
When you see me fallin' in
Fallin' in, fallin' in.

True wisdom, fallin' in
True wisdom, is fallin' in.

imaginary lover 9/9/08

Playing guitar on a warm sunny day
My darlin' beside me is painting away
Out in the forest, far from the rat race
Nothing relaxes like Nature's embrace

Down to the river to catch us some sup'
Pour the wine bottle and say bottoms up
Make love in the moonlight, and sleep in the stars
Wake to the birdsong, this heaven is ours

Lace up out boots and we head for the hills
To have us a picnic where the waterfall spills
And then after lunch, it's time to unwind
Bask in the sun, your skin against mine

Driftin' and dreamin' of days come and gone
Glimpsing the future as time marches on
Wherever we go, whatever we do
Just know that I'll always be living for you

Thanks

for the props, free idea. I like your work, too.

And just like Carly, I'll never tell...

Injustice Tiananmen Square 7/13-7/14/89

Dissident monks, activist students, protest outside the fence.
Call and response, blame the betrayed for pursuing accountability.
The world needs to see our society, in this culture of incrimination
Due process, habeas corpus don't exist.

Mind set rights of citizenship pray openly in public.
Youngest political prisoner condition the necessary message.
Wearing a monks logo distinctive with self determination
Someone's missing a family member.

Falsely accused of preaching against the institution teaching against the system.
Transparent variation of immunity for the last time, rules don't apply
Interpret the incident, you can either embrace Einstein or Mao.
Living in anonymity, living a family life.

You belong here, you who stood in front of tanks
Balance a house divided, a bridge of freedom a love of common ground.
Struggle for distinction, fairness, a fairest of rewards
A responsible promise of democracy.

Victimize the families of the executed, how soon they turn against their own
Martial law ordered to do what they're told, that's what they'll do, and only that.
Cornered off in the park, standing in circles, leave, disperse or be taken away.
Chinese rifles penny a crate

World weeps in remembrance gathering to mark its anniversary
Collect the signatures, commitment of names effecting the course of history.
State day parade everyone related to the L gang is
Granted a hearing, prisoners will never be identified.
