The East wind blows anticipating a storm
The intensity of heat from the summer sun dissipated
The blueness of the breeze chilled our spiny bones
Could it be that the season dwindles
Speculations too soon for this truth
Hoping the sweltering hot begone
And the waves from The East bring some relief
To the shores of Fairhope before dawn
I read about humans today that murdered innocent animals.
Their egos out of proportion to kindness’ that animals afford men
And, karma we hope is truthful and comes with swift jamming action
To mortals like those who kill for sport and take the innocent with them
Our souls gather spoils belonging to others
The lions head on your fireplace mantle
Shall haunt you forever seen flickering in a candle
Putting the murder to rest is your crimson scandal
Your dreams where you’re frightfully running
Escaping through a hot dusty path thought, cunning
AH-HA! Caught ~ in your lair ~ you set ~ While awaiting
For the animals trap set for the lion
Has now captured the big cat’s killer
And atlas that fate has surrounded and proves true.
The murdering sports hunter has just been slew
Earning the wings that I wear,
Dutiful battles and wars not disbarring,
The sight of suffering and smell of stench,
The roads we’ve traveled often forgotten,
The hunger for home, not resenting,
The survival fought for mankind,
My wings though grey with dirt,
The fight has passed my thirst,
But we continue forward,
As soldiers do,
Commanded by the Lord,
Until we’re through.
Don’t think you shall slip from me,
My mind won’t permit
The waters try to separate us,
From the sweat and the dust of Earth,
But I won’t let them take you away,
Though the clock hands unwind to suggest so,
BUT, I SHALL STOP THEM, from taking you,
My night dreams and visions will carry us through,
Until I enter the door of everlasting bliss ~
And perhaps leave you here,
Half forgotten, “Oh, my dear.”
I’ll let you go if I must
So, here’s to your peace
In me you can forever trust.
Farewell, my love, goodbye.
My Little Jo Jo
March 2009-July 20, 2015
Closing eyes shut I see green pasturesSee you run freely
There in the flowers you jump so high
Barking ~ Like laughter
To see you smile
Cherished fond memories
Moments of ~
Off and on, fleeting visions
Running close to me
Reaching out to touch you
Then disappearing from my dreams
Only left with an image
You standing on a hill
Telling me ~
I’ll see you soon
Selfishly you are missed
I hold you here
Confusion about living
Dying and the hands unwind
You whisper to tell me
If you listen you’ll hear me
Just call on me
If you need me then call me
I’m not far from you
I dedicate this poem to someone that I admire beyond words…
To Ingrid Naiman
Ingrid’s blog and link to her, out of this world, knowledge of healing…
The Healers in Ecuador
Ecuador lush greens, and iguanas galore
The smell of the Hibiscus so sweet they implore
The hunches of folk maidens found in books
Adventures in paradise; listening to brooks
Healing the soul from whence it came
Releasing the bondages from deadly games
The essence of breath found in the jungle untamed.
The healers explored vast botany ignored
Within the person the pilgrims restored
Instead of a pharmacy excepting a bribe
Drops from lush plants heal souls that subscribe
And, hope soars as the eagles proclaim,
The Boehme folk maidens brushed them and gently lay claim
Healing for anyone without any shame
Thanking The Earth for royal bounties it shares
Requesting in return to replenish its’ ware

The person who can not create will have difficulty manifesting.
My soulmate is a pilgrim,
He explores the zodiac’s constellations
Not always in our own Milky Way, he treks
His journeys enlighten mankind
Because he aims his bow hunting faith in Sagittarius
And swims with emotional artestry in Pisces
He judges mankind with Libran scales
As he admires beauty while visitingTaurus
By Capricorn he calculates the distances to travel
With Gemini he knows about all the heavens
In Aquarius he will always be courageous and cool
While adventuring The Scorpio Moon, my soulmate tells no secrets
Because he is a man of Aries who has great self worth
His mother The Virgin he humbly thanks
The Cancer crab brings him home again
He enters Earth as Leo the lion
That time occured when Regulus in retrograde circled Jupiter
Then, Jupiter conjoined Venus
Making it event the brightest lights in all heaven
So the Maggi would find the divine child
My soulmate is that deity
He rides on the tail of the comets.
One day he will come again
And he, my friend, does not lie.

The Death of The Matrix
We are their tunes created for their folly
Some of us are sad and others jolly
The lyricist wrote the song, we’ll sing
As fate bound us
with their linguistic ring
The happy songs perhaps their prejudice
The silly songs laughter gives way, their belly ache
And the drunken songs supplies their demonic vice
and all along we play
The sad songs, the affirmations of their fallen mortal advice
Nevertheless, we march along vibrating tunes charged
Pretending soldiers but really prearranged
Shuffling to their orchestra manipulating human pawns
The humanoid awaits
The savior who will ride the sun’s beams at the break of dawn
And on that day mankind will be set free
Playing their true songs which were meant to be
And the plants will glow their sumptuous greens
The river flows again
No longer experienced through artificial means
The true song we always hear in our dreams
We will sing one day perhaps very soon.
