Thank you for a real good

Thank you for a real good time
You make me happy, make me shine
Lucky are we who can smile and say
I'm on the Bus and here to stay

We trip around the country catching all the shows we can
And we just keep on dancin while the music plays the band
We know a little something that the rest won't ever know
We live in peace, we laugh, we dance and hold on to the rose

Is there ever a time That

Is there ever a time
That was never to dim

When the moment just right
Still glass captures the light

Frozen in time’s haste
Foolishness is a waste

Don’t Go, Don’t Go
Stuck within the moment

Won’t you let me go now
Struggle from some, not all

The impulse’s shadow
Casts these memories

i've got a couple...

This one's from a couple of years ago, and doesn't have a name:

The star-studded wet green fields
Sway to the time of a northern breeze.
Walking out in the sweet rhythm
Drinking in air
Thick and soft
In the mystery of a night
Crowded with ghosts
Of a thousand dead butterflies
The living air
shimmers and ripples.
But I don’t look back
As I swim through it, away.

This one also doesn't have a name, and i believe it's from last year:

I’m sitting in the TV Coney Island
Watching the rides
I gotta go to a new place every day
Paris is next,
To whenever paris was Paris.
After that it’s the bus station on 178th street
From there who knows
I flew in the morning while the fog was still clearing from my windows
Walking down the streets
Heavy with dew and grey
Flew to San Francisco to see some real fog
But I never stayed on there more than a few days
Sleeping peacefully among the flowers, lost souls,
The bookstores and the beats.
Well then I drove down to Los Angeles but I didn’t care
For LA LA land and
the drive was all I wanted anyway
since I lost mine somewhere in summer
way back when
I was laying way down in the mad jungle

Poet's Corner

A few Haiku

scaring the children
with his shaggy beard--they come
back to tug on it

well tended garden
rows and rows of organic herbs
most of them legal

passing the peace pipe
community of gentle souls
rests between sets

morning dew
never quite the same
since walking thru it

eye's didn't see,
claws grip
barbs cover
veiled lies,
do you
listen to me,
paths of the dragon
lead only to
made you

Criminalize the Dali Lama

This graffiti ridicules the criminalization of the Dali Lama
Brother james, cousin simon are here to help you hide the family picture of the Dali Lama.
Buddha shaped hourglass turns over aspects of charity into sinless acts of sacrifice.
Turtle shell fell into pieces here forth the national future action will leave neither without.

Chant neutral bible quotes with help from strangers,
Abandon status as Moses under house arrest
An integration of meditations going to church barefoot
The code of China is embroidered on prayer sleeves.

The privileged offer no dialog over the satellite which set aside the rights of human beings
Reinventing the myth of being arrested in front of his family
Martial law students subvert their subculture feeling abandoned by progressive societies
People in power are doing wrong kick down the door and be taken away Panchen Lama

aerobic excercise

dancin' with Jack on my shoulders this heart is going good and...Lord knows I'm a voodoo child baby...Jack pat pat pat on my crew cut head and hoot hoot hoot as I spin and dance along and suddenly I throw my dreads back in the hot southern sun of Alabama with all twelve fingers outstretched from the end of my spine shooting acid electricity screaming cause I'm a voodoo child...........voodoo child.......and jack holds on smiling and laughing and digging every bit of it all the way back to our living room...

Just a little bit more of the Madman's Ramblin'

Stray cat shufflin’ down
the street at dawn
Don’t know where he’s been, but
it’s time to go home.

Blind rat hiding in
the shadow’s light
He’s too old to run, but
not afraid to fight.

Storm clouds blowin’ in
from miles around
Gotta seek shelter, or
your soul might drown.

Sometimes it’s hard to hear
what’s harder to say
Have to keep living, Lord,
for one more day.

There’s no way out, and just
one way down
Devil’s gonna catch you
just hanging around
