    From touch to touch

    Each moment individual separate, never touching.
    A space, a breath, three sneezes, and a bless you.
    Pristinely rough, the challenge is that
    Nothing ever happens.
    Free and clear, nothing touches you,
    Nothings touching me.
    In golden light fading, we watch
    Our faces becoming drawn,
    Revealing parents and lizards and tigers inside.
    The heart is like cement.
    Oh so easy to get harder and harder,
    Until the only solution is to
    Take a sledgehammer to it,
    And smithereen it back into tenderness.
    Ive missed being here, its good being back,
    Although being forced back into the
    Digi world was unwelcome, here I is back in it.

    Lots of love, be strong and upright for the people
    Around you to be supported by.

    Hey Man, kiss off. First thing in the morning, not even a cup of coffee in me and now you got me crying like a baby. I don't need this.

    Thanks, that was really nice. Very true. This September will mark 40 years with my wife. Talk about a long strange trip :-)

    Making Love

    Not a poem, but beautiful nonetheless:

    In the seventies, you and I called it "having sex" or just "doing it," and we did it wherever and whenever we could: in the shower, on an air mattress in a tent, in saggy beds in cheap motels.
    Somewhere in the eighties it became making love. Our honeymoon lovemaking was the best ever: in a real bed with no one to interrupt us. We were going to do this forever. In the nineties we did it on a schedule: calendars and thermometers and keeping track. After the babies, making love meant keeping promises. It was as routine as you putting on the suit and tie and shaving every morning, and me doing laundry and having dinner on the table every night.
    The babies grew up and left home.
    After 2005 making love was you saying I was beautiful even though I was vomiting and bald, and my skin was gray.
    In 2008 it was your turn. Sex was out of the question. Making love was me changing dressings and cleaning the drainage tubes as gently as I could.
    By 2012 making love was just this:
    lying beside you, our hands touching knuckle to knuckle;
    smiling and crying; letting the morphine do its job;
    saying good-bye.

    - T.M.

    Feel For The Refugee (continued)
    Empathy is not pathologicalAs refugees run from the gangster’s wrath They support an aging demographical So immigration is a logical path. There’s a cost to Costa Rica When hunger hounds El Salvador Where’s the salvation for Guatemala In the clamor for our vice amor. We once beckoned with a beacon Now we behave so insecure When we grow older and weaken We will have wished more help were here. Our history has an oft whited bend As the land turns a little more brown Once natives were bled and branded red men But that’s past dark for those northern bound.

    Women Rule
    Sadat with Begin and Gandhi ‘fore KingNations lost foundations to peace building But harmony isn’t how we or the world sing And blood’s still gushing like hot water springs. Bet on wise women for peace to have a chance Before the puppet does his shadow dance They addressed advantaged deviants’ advances Now give them a hand so each life enhances. Denigrated and denied for far too long Women aren’t playing good old boy songs Deeming to undo what the men did wrong Because man’s fighting unless doing bongs. Today’s woman will bring this cabal to tears Sweeping in souring deals ‘til the swamp clears Fair ladies will help to rebuff four gone years With a peace from justice and the touch to fear.

When we talk this wayThe 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

a small particle too small for the naked eyefloats through this timeless space... particle on top of molecule, now we've got dust gathered in outer space what a seemingless place was this dust sent through a black hole, to every beginning an end or should we assume that the the universe was prexistent before any matter now its time for time to fall into place how long has this space been when did it began this universe keeps to its laws (natures laws) only to expand upon its contents and their mass along with the gravitational pull that allows it to contract and expand proving that oneday in a point of of time this space was smaller than today Here comes the prime evil atom causing a great big bang among this small matter of what seemed to be dust was actuallyintended to be an egg releasing gases hydrogen, helium creating a much compounded world left for evolution to take its course this is where life comes into effect... answering the question how the universe began

Every day my eye awakensReflecting dreams lost slumber Waking, fabricating time My perceptions illuminate in the light of your space Every visage ethereal grace Penetrating my heart is in rhythm A motion brought to my attention We put ourselves in this place Heaven knows all other worldly systems Not to exclude your own The static lining of your position A permissive act of will We are lost in this place With all the potential for altered states Do not get lost in yourself We are other worldly Every day is latent energy For the stewards who are sleeping Delicate, shimmering waves My hands hold the sphere which ignites in space Every second lost is gained Bringing back around my intentions Like clockwork I am reminded We should take care of this place

Every body else seemsTo have something better to do tonight So now it's just me and you babe It's just me and you Sitting on this pile of rocks Got our sweaters pulled up tight Cause its time to pull the pets in Yeah its gonna be a three dog night Sitting in front of the fire Thinking overtime on how to lift you higher But in the end it comes to this It really doesnt matter how hard you try In the end it will all be revealed It will be seen that we never left the sky This earthly dream to wonder why We left the campfire to wander Out of body experience Is the only true experience In body experience is a Straight up lie

I have traveled through a timeless universe of rippled skies, over seas of churning color to traverse the ranges and valleys in a single brushstroke. I have seen the faces in the wood and journeyed into the black hole of chain link. I have stormed the fort and stood in the shoes of many a dying soldier. I have run through the dark woods, dodging trees and shadows, chasing the glimpse of a fleeting thought. I have felt the ground move like the belly of a fat man laughing at two boys flying head over heels into manhood. I followed my mind into my soul to find these unreal realities which were hiding behind prejudice, shame and fear in brilliant shades of peace, love and good will.

You must start right to end rightYou can't rise any higher than the source If you set your sights on matter Spirit will be nowhere to be found Starting with feet firmly planted on infinity Insures success from the very outset What is there to die If nothing has ever been born Always resting in action Ideas shining brightly Like a light in our Father's eye It was a backwards thought That has seemd to keep us trapped For so long Graduation day in the temple Grasping the pebble's Out of Master's hand Now is time to leave The temple grounds To wander. Watering the garden and moving along.

The sound of the snow plows Growling through the city streets Laying down the plow with a metallic concussion I felt it in my bones three floors up Walking through the city neighborhoods The sounds of car tires compressing powder, Dogs barking carrying through back yards The scritch scritch scritch of the Snowshovel on amacite Surrounding you, wherever you go Someone is digging out. When that city dumptruck plow hits the road, it sounds like a bomb And then hard scraping with sparks flying And inside it all The sound of snow falling on snow.

High Time Lyrics By: Robert Hunter You told me goodbye How was I to know You didn't mean goodbye You meant please don't let me go I was having a high time Living the good life Well I know The wheels are muddy Got a ton of hay Now listen here baby 'Cause I mean what I say I'm having a hard time Living the good life Well I know I was losing time, I had nothing to do No-one to fight, I came to you Wheels broke down, the leader won't draw The line is busted, the last one I saw Tomorrow comes trouble Tomorrow comes pain Now don't think too hard, baby 'Cause you know what I'm saying I could show you a high time Living the good life Don't be that way Nothing's for certain It could always go wrong Come in when it's raining Go on out when it's gone We could have us a high time Living the good life Well I know

I still enjoyWatching dogs play In the snow My little muffin has Passed beyond us now But I still enjoy Watching dogs play In the snow They rip and tear And bound and flow The entire time Throwing out tons of snow Like a wake behind them As they tear on unaware Of how much joy That they might bring Outside of my front window Fifty days away from Spring No, they don't know How much I still enjoy Watching dogs play In the snow.

With this loss of nothingness, we leave these surroundings a selfless breath Moment to moment, act to action these ordinary acts of spirit. Preconceived necessity accepting initial images as self evident remnants Penetrate the night air, witness to a seclusive detachment. Refractive aspects of beginnings have denied a closed outlook Tears absolve, this anonymous refulgence. Destroy our transparent cage as liberation takes us to its center of definition The participants simplify the inevitable, here forth throughout the darkness dismissed. Interrogated spectrums of decision Entropic conception, individualized inclusiveness See ourselves internalized upon the mind Of these eyes learning to master the pure view, Solitude a natural state of neutrality, waiting, beginning's bring beginning's upon the hands. Shadows in waiting surfacing upon the foreground fade, making it difficult to look away Twilight dissipates, making it difficult to discriminate Solitude in its natural state of neutrality, native lanterns on night table Familiar shadows of cerulean companionship surfacing in a foreground Visualized upon the approach, ready to be seen, close enough to actualize 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. After-sight, inner-light, distant stars internalized upon the heart. Let heaven be seen, let heaven be beholden.

These days are a riddle The heart plays the fiddle Watching me step to the road Catching my eye All those passing by Nothings for sale I say in a sigh As these long nights collide days slowly pass by A candle alight in my eyes Could it be words that Turn the next page A jewel for your crown This babe Turning of age Forms of tomorrow Not yet Taken their shape I could contain What the mystery Can't shake Or a farewell to thee Before the big quake

To Lay Me DownLyrics By: Robert Hunter Music By: Jerry Garcia To lay me down once more, to lay me down With my head in sparkling clover Let the world go by, all lost in dreaming To lay me down one last time, to lay me down To be with you once more, to be with you With our bodies close together Let the world go by, like clouds a-streaming To lay me down one last time, to lay me down To lay me down, to lay me down To lay me down one last time, to lay me down To lie with you once more, to lie with you With our dreams entwined together To wake beside you, my love still sleeping To tell sweet lies one last time and say goodnight To lay me down, to lay me down To lay me down one last time, to lay me down

We got the banks and the cars and the credit cardsTimes are getting kind of hard Saw the early morning news What are we gonna do? The Nikkei and the S&P And what that means to you and me Listen to the talking heads And figure out what they said About the bailout Got the bailout blues About the bailout Got the bailout blues If you need another billion We'll try to see what we can do No credit for this and none for that We been charging this and that Lots of talk of doom and gloom Predicting things that might come true Tealeaves and the voodoo stick Spin the wheel, take your pick Listen to the talking heads And figure out what they said About the bailout Got them bailout blues About the bailout About them bailout blues If you need a few more billion We'll look and see what we can do We just need a hundred billion Why not make it an even trillion We'll keep taking what your giving We're just trying to make a living The CEO can work it out With the boys out in the house They didn'y fly, they took a cab To see how much they could grab It costs a lot for luxury There's not much left for you and me Listen to the talking heads And figure out what they said About the bailout Got them bailout blues About the bailout Got them bailout blues And if you need a lotta billions We'll try and help you with that to And if you want an even trillion We'll take a look at that for you Bailout Blues alley: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbwlwFXKArw ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Walk into splintered sunlight Inch your way through dead dreams to another land" Robert Hunter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Ray, a drop of golden sun"

Not Fade Away Lyrics By: Hardin/Petty I wanna tell you how it's gonna be, you're gonna give your love to me, I wanna love you night and day, you know my love not fade away.

The Music Never StoppedLyrics By: John Barlow Sun went down in honey And the moon came up in wine You know stars were spinning dizzy Lord the band kept us so busy We forgot about the time They're a band beyond description Like Jehovah's favourite choir People joining hand in hand While the music plays the band Lord they're setting us on fire Crazy rooster crowing midnight Balls of lightning roll along Old men sing about their dreams Women laugh and children scream And the band keeps playing on Keep on dancing through to daylight Greet the morning air with song No one's noticed but the band's all packed and gone Was it ever here at all? But they kept on dancing

My Sisters And Brothers Lyrics: Charles Johnson I want to say to my sisters and my brothers Keep the faith When the storm flies and the wind blows Go on at a steady pace When the battle is fought and the victory's won We can all shout together, we have overcome We'll talk to the Father and the Son When we make it to the promised land If we walk together, little children We won't ever have to worry Through this world of trouble We've got to love one another Let us take our fellow man by the hand Try to help him to understand We can all be together For ever and ever When we make it to the promised land Our bible reads Thou shalt not be afraid Of the terror by night Nor the arrow that flies by day Nor for the pestilence That walketh in the darkness Nor for the destruction That waiteth in the noonday hour If we walk together, little children We won't ever have to worry Through this world of trouble We've got to love one another Let us take our fellow man by the hand Try to help him to understand We can all be together For ever and ever When we make it to the promised land This world is not our home We are only passing through Our trail is all made up Way beyond the blue Let us do the very best that we can While we're travelin' through this land We can all be together Shaking a hand When we make it to the promised land If we walk together, little children We won't ever have to worry Through this world of trouble We've got to love one another Let us take our fellow man by the hand Try to help him to understand We can all be together For ever and ever When we make it to the promised land When we make it to the promised land children Make it to the promised land children Make it to the promised land children Make it to the promised land When we make it to the promised land sisters Make it to the promised land children We can all be together, forever and ever When we make it to the promised land If we walk together, little children We won't ever have to worry Through this world of trouble We've got to love one another Let us take our fellow man by the hand Try to help him to understand We can all be together For ever and ever When we make it to the promised land We can all be together, forever and ever When we make it to the promised land

I woke up this morningAnd lit up a smoke I turned on the t.v. The news-caster spoke She said everything Is going to hell And when it might change No one can tell And then she smiled Said "have a nice day" And don't let this evil Darken your way So I decided To head for the hills Let mother nature Comfort what ills And up on the mountain I set it all free Then said a prayer For both you and me Time keeps on ticking Like waves on the sea Let's make sure our future Makes good history It's all-right When you walk in the light Let the rain fall from above And be surrounded by Love

Been playing on the corner, longer then before the casino closed down.Longer then the second oldest profession was thrown out of the theater and into the streets. Generations before the redevelopment turned the theme park into miniature Memphis. The story of your life is in that model. Can't pull you a ticket, you've got to pay to stay. Can't take you on at the pass line. Can't break even on you doing community service. Cold kitchen, empty shelfs, we gambled away the hunger. Never forget, there's nothing in their pockets. Happiness carries a price, balancing the struggle for perfection. The place in the shade you work for, being successful and well tanned. There's more room now that everyone else got out of the way. According to the golden rule, something had to happen. We all knew better for folding, redeemed through a complicated assumption. Logic at best is problematic, second guessing a first solutions categorization. Suspending a well needed intuitions inevitable conclusion. Gravity is secure, so go the dominoes. Stacking boxes in the corner by four, leveling chips on top. Protecting the elders, attending to youth, maintaining children. Deny them rice and meat, waste a noodle, kill a monk. Planning stage of product placement, divine item, sacred luxury. Selling the sizzle, power holds the zero, the best performances go unnoticed. Agreeing to bring down the final stage. They don't have to explain why they play it their own way. Those moves guarantee constant resolve, although progress is slow. The cards are dealt, the bets are placed. An attempt to reward the honorable, obtainment down the line, on the turn. It's a problem you shouldn't have to solve without luck. The lights go down, The curtains close. On the piss prayer for the rainmakers wishing well. Losses in the flood, carried away on a flush filled river Blind aggression, the elimination of common sense, out bluffing a pair of twos.

you gotta keep livin' the faith when the wind's in your faceand you got the weight of the world on your brain. try to see the bright side, lookin' from the dark side try to pull the sun out of the rain. keep on livin' the faith when you can't find a friend and you need somebody to defend you. a silver lining will turn your sky blue, and God will find a angel just for you. keep on livin' the faith when you're not sure it;s there and you just can't say another prayer break the last straw,knock down the wall nobody said that life was fair.

DeliverTell of the time you saw your shadow Deliver The time is high Roll on away, Roll on with the rolling thunder. Cruel water falls Again. Deliver, Tell of a tale that no one knows of. Deliver And say goodbye. What you meant to say, Was that the game is just beginning What you meant to say Is at an end. Deliver, By word of mouth and slow quotation. Deliver, And wonder why. Just another way. Just another broken mirror. Just another way, To make a mend!

its not rocket science we don't have to kid ourselves if we dont get a grip and pull together and start to love one another for real soon enough it will be the ones with all the guns and money who will be telling us when to duck and when to run, and when to take cover.

I will point my finger at the moon: Mostly, beings look intently at The tip of my finger and say, "Beautiful Moon". But you, grasshopper, You have gazed beyond my finger To see the reflected golden inner light Of the mental palace of ease and calm, Before education, prior to conception, Primeval being is yours for all of eternity. Go on, go out and point your finger to the moon So that others may also see its beautiful light Do not become discouraged, grasshopper, When they also stare at your finger tip and say, full of passion, "Beautiful Moon". I was once also called grasshopper, as you are now, And one day you will call another, grasshopper. And they will call you, "One beyond who sees the moon".

Your're only as free As much as you can afford You're only as free As much as you can horde You're only as free As much as you keep from the theif No, You're only as free As you let yourself be You're only as free As the man who writes your check You're only as free As the size of your deck You're only as free As the money you're owed No, You're only as free As the rows that you've hoed You're only as free As the house across the street You're only as free As the shoes on your feet You're only as free As long as paradise is yours No, You're only as free As long as you remember it's her's

Sitting solidly in heavenWatching hell pass before my eyes I know it is merely illusion But I still can hear the cries It doesn't distract me from my prayer Nor lead me from my goal To arrive at the answer to why From perfection I may have strayed There is still no one who can say But while I yet appear to be here Let us sit and discuss the day Planting the seed of our thought In sacred soil unshaken unstirred Sitting solidly in heaven Watching hell pass before our eyes To know we are all fully enlightened And in every present moment, to Act that way.

Meant to Be~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sitting up restless, it came to me one night... Love, dreams, and wonders is all that I could see, Cuz I saw you...you came to me, a radiant vision full of light... So strong, so beautiful, I struggled to be set free... Blinded eyes were opened, now I see cuz you came to me and said 'baby I love you, stop messing with my head' Some call me crazy, but I know it'll turn out right.. There no way I ain't gonna fight... Hold on baby bear... Cuz we found a love that is very rare Hold on.... Just know how I feel the emptyness inside some how it just don't feel right When I can't hold you through the night But Hold on while I sing you this song Lovin you so much can't be wrong Your not just another fish... in the sea, in the sea Sail away with me and We'll be gone Sail away with me and We'll be gone.... We'll be together for eternity, just hold on a little and you will see That a love like this was only meant to be! I hold you so dear in my heart God why does loving you run so deep Like a bear curled up in sleep All I know is that we need to kindle an new spark Like it always was from the start I love you so much Trishy Bear The love I have can go anywhere If I have to follow you to the edge of the earth A love like this is full of worth You mean the world to me I know our love can set us free! You opened my eyes, now I see! Call me crazy, call me wrong...I don't care, my love for you is just too strong Hold on baby bear... Cuz we found a love that is very rare Just know how I feel the emptyness inside some how it just don't feel right When I can't hold you through the night But Hold on while I sing you this song Lovin you so much can't be wrong Your not just another fish... in the sea, in the sea Sail away with me and We'll be gone Sail away with me and We'll be gone.... We'll be together for eternity, just hold on a little and you will see That a love like this was only meant to be! HOLD ON! _____________________________________________ Will you come with me? Once in awhile you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right!

This birthday, senses reap, the breath of birth. I am my ancestry, looking out over the open garden. Infinite aspects, unfurled in endless loss of cover. Simply reliving seasons, memories in the rain of understanding. Years of dreaming, eyes filled, I can see Clouds part, mist lifted into shafts of sunlight. Wheel of existence, movement, hearts rhythm. Shed the grave name, in a birth of senses, infinite breath. The grave name, the name I carry through life. Rebirth, ash, sighs, accepting the urn of remains. A cup of rain, drink from a handful of rain. Earth beset,this rest eternal. Someday the past will retire. As we grow into the calling wind of final liberation.

I love the smell of drums/space in the morningIt's sounds like a parade is going by There is the sound of a child swinging On a very loudly squeaking swing And I can't tell if it is in the music Or coming from outside my window Someone walks by bouncing a basketball And it folds into the rhythms from the stereo I walk into the other room as a bus rounds the turn and its like a bass bomb, no that was a bass bomb and now here comes Jerry's guitar, crawling like a snake up the broken stone steps of a castle's tower with the top blown off so you can see the sky, and its a moonless night; you can see the planets each with its own color and the constellations get up and play around the sky until the sound of a dump truck firing at the moment the green flash hits you from the horizon line dawn wipes them away but you know they are still there but you go home anyway take a shower and as you come out into the morning rays, you think to yourself I love the smell of drums/space in the morning

Lone elk grazing in a dawn-lit misty mountain meadowDarkness sees the light approach and hides among the shadows I sit on a carpet green of grass and wild-flowers While butterflies go dancing by rejoicing in sun showers The rapids in the creek sing out in three-part harmony With snow-melt from the source it rushes on with youthful glee A raven glides on by hitching a ride upon a thermal And at the core of every thing resides a love eternal The sun sinks low and alpenglow illuminates the peaks I see the light and hear the truth that Mother Nature speaks

The most powerful gift A connection to the spectrum light infinite. Tears of silence meld into a clarity of peace and understanding. Now the moments are left to strengthen a faith. A re-belief the joyful interactions will remain As more then memories for the sharing. Together Our heavenly orchestra perfects their art of healing, community and consciences. Kindness, is compassion as shade Welcomes their proper place under the soothing ease of a willow tree . Please accept us as we reach to be with you. II Love Prevail. As the flag of understanding was unfurled upon the highest plateau. For the townsfolk, friends and all good people to gather. Dancing in the spectrum of watercolor response. Emotions closer as a last tear goodbye prevailed in love. Of all that fundamental seraph can teach while in this life.

People often speak in reverent tonesabout the speed of Light. I am not so easily impressed, when obviously Dark is faster than Light. You want proof? Well, here you go. Where ever Light goes, Dark is already there. I'm more impressed by the power of Light. Where ever Light goes, Dark leaves, and only comes slinking back in when Light moves on. Dark may be faster, but Dark is a coward. Light is bold, and emboldening. And it's in no particular hurry. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

It is safe to come out nowthe skies are all clear the lions and tigers and bears have all gone home to count their cake and we are left to crawl out of these holes in the ground unseen, rubbled craters, smoking earth; razed by the last administrators. It is safe to come out now, you thinkers, you poets, you dreamers; the scary faced clowns have left the stage muttering dark thoughts over their shoulders they slink off into the ignominy of history but we still too shaken to believe are stuck in the language of yesterday. It is safe to come out now, you can draw, dance, freely speak your mind. In fact it is highly recommended For we will need your best dreams To dream our way through this next stretch of road. It is safe to come out now, All is clear.
