Sometimes goodness fails
and the vacuum is suddenly filled with evil

Eternity looks on

How many of us are in that vacuum?
do we struggle to repair the damage..

eternity has a dark side
this is for ever and there is no escape, eternal

Not all is darkness
there are the flowers and the clouds that call out to HIM and all the creatures of the earth, the seas and oceans, the mountains and deserts, all living creations, humble before the Lord God Almighty...

and I am

The world has turned a page
what was bad is now good

The world has turned a page
what was good is now bad

We have ears to hear and eyes to see
yet we never speak out...fear.?.

Sometimes we need to remember
Fear only God, the rest is a distraction

Internet filled with traps
Godless people surround us

Sometimes we just need to stop and look

It wasn't that far from where I was standing
then again I may have been standing too close

a sudden change of direction
a time just to look...and see it new

Quail bobbing and calling
pie pan of bird seed their only concern

wished them good morning
They continued their breakfast

Went into the house
ten minutes later one lay dead on the patio

burst of fear
tried to fly through a window

We all die

"Imagine" (by John Lennon)

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... Aha-ah...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

A collection of minutes
a bundle of hours
end of day
eternity laughed

space and time, just variables

existence come and gone
a thin recording
had it all
a pile of dust

when will we learn

Did we leave it better?
better than when we found it?
emotions stopped us
desire killed us

Fear sometimes is overcome

They were all around my feet, jabbering and quaking, demanding...so I emptied the plastic bowl that they see as the horn of plenty and their voices fell into a quite place and the consumption began in earnest

Are we not like them
Is it not the stomach

Is it not the world
and the temptations that drive us

the spiritual begs us to return
and we quiver

temptation is all around
I am a man

yet God speaks
and there is forgiveness

As a man I struggle
It is the face of God I seek

Pray for me and this country
There were 5 duck eggs and 6 chickens

Sun was sliding
cold was tugging the thermometer

ducks were watching
food and water for the coop

I was doing my part
and then they balked

stopped and looked
it was that edge of day and night that was perfect

similar to a morning when you are warm
it takes 90 seconds to get up

suddenly they stood
wandered to the coop

sun slowly gave up the day
I closed the coop door and wished them good night

then crazy Rita came from a far corner and demanded entrance
it is all good

peeping around the shadow
smiling as we watched

the sky was blue
the other was white

wonderful wonderment
just the joy of seeing

just the moon at midday

They don't see me
they see the me of yesteryear

humping 90 pound bags of concrete
eight 2x4 on a shoulder

laughing, sweating, working
bones crying...slow down

end of day was beer and topical
laughter, denial, and skill

We gave our lives for this country
and you don't see us

the roads you drive on the bridges you cross
the buildings you work in

you can't make anything
but letters on a page

They don't see me
I'm in that rest home you pass every day

Sun was there to hold me
song birds crying happiness

thoughts drifting away
younger years floating up

Time to remember
Sun to heal

All those little memories
that held us for reasons unknown


Call it Spring

Sometimes it is that simple
sleepy feelings interfering

call it Spring

Tempted to call it Spring...87 degrees
but have been here before

the box stove is a match away

T shirts and shorts rule
cold beer and laughter

projects piling up
Smiles and working hands eager

The list is sitting and waiting
Time and money contemplating

the box stove is a match away

summer boys vibrating in anticipation
elderly sitting on their benches

bones don't hurt
some of the fear is gone

Mother Nature has her way
one day this and one day that

the box stove is a match away

When I was young I forgot about tomorrow
today was the only thing on my agenda

Along came sometimes

and today didn't have the tug
tomorrow pulled like a black hole

sometimes we consider

Youth is wonderful...celebrate
time is not on your side

living is not about here
the next place is what it is all about

don't forget the destiny

The valley is green
sky like virgin blue

Air is so soft
sun is healing bones

smell of the earth
song of a bird

Spring

Years dropping off
Winter thoughts defrosting

old hands in a garden feeling young
laughter erupting, wife wondering

Weeds need to be pulled
trees are filling out

Spring

Summer came in
it is May

the following day spring returned
day after; winter was gripping her elbow

Now it is Spring
the garden is in riot

Sometimes we are merely viewers
and the unpredictable is the truth

Birds in migration say one thing
and that is my true weather vane

The beauty of all this flux is a wonderment
we only need to watch and listen

Shadows allow us to lower our burden
The weight of the heat rests just outside

overspray of water is always welcome
sudden breeze through a sprinkler

respite

Straw hats and cool drinks
feet in cool water

evening shade and friends in lawn chairs
bats competing with fly catchers

the pulse of summer

What's so funny?
just a thought, it is nothing

still smiling

Just tell me
if I tell you, you won't understand

chuckle

Am I that dense?
no it just makes no sense

How do you explain a life time

Do you never laugh when you are alone?
Probably

There is your answer

What is funny to one is undone with two
sometimes we laugh because someone else did

smiles bring smiles

Eternity is
time is almost not in existence there

Time is
we are almost not in existence there

Eternity can never be crossed
time is a hop, skip, and a jump

How great we think we are
and then we vanish

unknown, unsung...
Eternity barely acknowledges

yet the little brown sparrow is still preserved

Iguanodons in a feeding frenzy
juicy greens stirring their violence

ripping pieces from an others mouth

crying out in their youth
crying out in their greed

water in between

when over they settle for a nap
then up for a last drink and back

I return to today and runner ducks

Why do friends disappear
why do so many run away

words seem to confuse us

Did you see that
see what

and the connection is missing

I see it
they don't

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

who is right
me or them

God loves all of us

right or wrong is of no importance
do you love your fellow man

and we continue to miss the point

Man hasn't changed a bit
just his toys

so the children grow
and discard wisdom

the computer tells us

we no longer rely on the gift
a gift that has truth

wisdom has been replaced
by sights and sounds and merry go rounds

party on

tomorrow is another day
to live or die

to hate one another is good
to love one another is bad

it's all good

you just turned sixty
and they only see what they get when you are dead

searching for wisdom
and knowing we failed
