Seems to me…

Words deemed flavorless

Out of a raven’s fist

Offer potential

To rise to new heights

One awkward statement

A downward spiral

No denial

Then one quick turn

Now looking up again

Sky in our sights

*

Feeling normal

Acting grand

No name or fame

Wisened flier at times admired

Seems to me

it’s all been planned

*

Of time oblivious

Caught in a lover’s kiss

Lifelong potential

To rise to new heights

One awkward statement

Carry for miles

Eased by smiles

More we learn

More we look up again

Our life invites

*

Feel stable

Take a stand

Mind the flame

Body and brain

Our desired fire is

Designed Inspired

Seems to me

it’s all been planned

*

Puzzle piece falls into place

Finds a perfect fit

An unsettling breeze blows over this space

Awkward instant tears us to bits

Dedication builds us back up again

At times in starts and fits

*

Be kind

There is no risk

*

Focus on the moment and the moment finds us

Nature we share

Help us take care of things

*

Be kind

There is no risk

As we understand

Share calm words

Be overheard with a consistent caring plan

Focus on the moment and the moment finds us

Nature we share

Helps us take care of things

Start opening our mind

To working harder at being kind

Save grace when we can

Seems to me its all been planned

*

You seem more than curious

about some kind of eternal bliss

Dream of potential

To rise to new heights

One well-placed statement

End of the trial

Finish with style

Time to burn

Till things look up again

We all have our rites

I’m feeling able

To lend a hand

Times seem dire till we rise higher

Seems to me

it’s all been planned

*Bright Depth*

Depth to the depth

When shallow I’m hollow

A breath in and out

Time moves and I follow

Then in the West

We call out Apollo

His best must be left

In grooves that we follow

*

Daybreak has all of my plans

At night dreams start all over again

Lighting the way everyday

A test to the test

In fire I wallow

*

A splash of wisdom

A dash of defiance

I aim to be close to

Established compliance

I can’t complain

but we do need change

To challenge the system

And set a new stage

*

So today, I buck history

of mine and the world’s

Try to redesign meaning

Of words we’ve unfurled

Bright ideas, dark days

My optimism is pure

Work and believing

*

Confess to the rest

When shallow we’re hollow

A breath in and out

Success proves how to follow

Guessed to be best

The world shouts a loud call out

The rest must be blessed

In grooves that we follow

*

Daybreak has all of my plans

At night dreams start all over again

At the height of day

I work and pray

Success at the test

In fire I wallow

*

Smoke is rising

Flames are twisting

I waver like a leaf in the heated breeze

No surprise

I’m resisting

To get past pain and find progress beneath

*

Our future is uncertain

and alternates positions

Staying strong in only one:

The stem of cool and calm visions

***

Passion Branching Out

Day melts like anger


channeled into steam


Breathing in the logical conclusion


of today’s fiery turmoil


The slope of a mountain we climb


Shines red with rivers of


Passion branching out


tomorrow hardening to form our resolution and


Calm


becoming grey as concrete


Plumes to ease our mind’s tension

*

Fuel for flame falls

Through night and day

Hues of red and orange idle

Locked for now or forever

in calm grey and green

Of waking dreams

Crawling over years

like clouds roll into vision

Tears preserve future life

Growing resolution to move forward in new days

Breathing heights of tomorrow

Fanning flora not fire

*

Excruciating loss

Again and Again

Maybe not for each of us

But for one time in a life

We should make a difference

when we can spare resources

If we can’t accept the rain

Sorrow thundering down

We may surrender to beauty

In another waking day

Strain comfort from humanity

Black out the darkest pain

One Word

One word

can change the moment

Change the day

Change our Life

*

Just one word

or a sentence or two

Changes everything

The world and our mood

*

Watch what you say

Careful what you do

Say what you mean

And what’s right for you

In the big scheme of things

It’s best to be true

Share what makes sense

From your point of view

*

One word

can drop very fast

Change our mind

And change our Life

*

Just one word

With some follow through

Changes everything

Understanding and Attitude

*

Watch what you say

Careful what you do

Say what you think

And words helpful for you

In the big picture

Each second is new

Share thoughts for progress

We can’t misconstrue

*

Every word means something different

from where we stand

And how we think

Each word should be well thought-out

but sometimes we act on impulse

And sometimes we don’t have the facts

or the most logical link

We should aim to choose our words carefully

the best we can

just in case they sink in

*

Any word

can change our train of thought

Change a little

Or change a lot

Just one word

Or a message

False or true

Can change everything

If it makes it through

Watch what you say

Goes for me too

I try to help out

Sometimes we have no clue

This is life

Reality right on cue

Share our energy

It’s all we can do

A Walk in the Park

I can’t always say

Things I want to say

*

To keep our lives together

We have to be smart

I can still love

The way I want to love

Even if I can’t say it loud

From the bottom of my heart

One day at a time

Chip away piece by piece

Tear down barriers

Try to make it right

Even pure words don’t always do justice

That doesn’t mean we can’t still win the fight

*

Look at who we are

Conscious beings

Different folks and creatures

All born from a spark

No matter where we came from

Or how life is going

We can find brighter hopes and features

To get past nights that are dark

Quiet or loud we win

When care and love are on the mark

*

I’m right on target

Arrow splitting arrow

Maybe you can see it

But you just can’t speak

The bullseye we’re looking at

Is aimed at our hearts

Incomparable

Maybe you can feel it

When this thought is complete

*

Say a word for peace

Say what you want to me

Don’t leave anyone out

Aim higher to help us all live better

*

We can’t always say

Things we want to say

*

To keep life together

We have to work hard

We can still love

The way we want to love

It can be best to say it loud

From the bottom of our heart

One day at a time

Chip away piece by piece

Tear down barriers

Try to make it right

Even pure words don’t always do justice

Doesn’t mean we can’t still win the fight

*

Look at who we are

Conscious beings

Special folk and creatures

All born from a spark

No matter where we came from

Or how life’s going

We can climb over higher slopes and detours

To get past days that seem dark

Quiet or loud we win

Caring

Way more

like

A walk in the park

Time to Meditate for Peace

Can we find some time to meditate

Or at least feel Peace in the moment?

Please give us signs of well-being and Wisdom

Look at a symbol of nature

that is calm

A flower or a fence

No vision out of place

If you can embrace opposition and then face

The world with a smile

that overrides the system

*

Can we find time to meditate

Work to create peace for more moments?

Recognize signs of sacrifice and progress

Accept symbols of nature

that are known best

A flower or a friend

Everyone in this place

If you can keep pace with contradiction and then base

Our world on the light

We have inside that grows blessed

*

To find peace inside

and clear our mind of gross pride

Are the first steps that will guide

Peace in our life and worldwide

But we have to believe it

Cleanse our minds and retrieve it

From the most chaotic days

Dark and dirtiest ways

Find the light that stays with us

Through all time that won’t hide

When we conceive it

Peace

*

Can we find time to meditate

Be allowed peace for more moments?

Follow the signs and find more sense and meaning

Worship symbols of nature

Now convening

A flower and face

Won’t feel out of place

If you can save grace with protection and then chase

A world out of sight

We make alright with a mission of peace

Intervening

Achieve Every Breath

The view that I maintain is born with me and the world

As a no-name knock-off

I know just about nothing

*


But when we put our heads together

We are oysters holding wise pearls

Sharing the sands of time

Exploring land, sea and sky forever

Beauty in our vision

And grit in our soul curled

*

It’s easy to scrutinize

But it’s not fair to capsize me

They should really know

I aim to do my best

Anxious moments melt into acceptance when we get well

I’d like to prove to you that I can pass every test

Hold onto empathy

As we look past

To the bottom line

Don’t let a few nerves

Unravel all the rest

*

Believe Believe

Achieve every breath

Achieve nothing less

Than our absolute best

*

From conception

Our dreams are all that we imagine

The view of society

Determines how they grow

I will hold my confidence

in the heart of my dense brain

And keep myself connected

To life’s ebb and flow

*

The view of myself is born with me and the Earth

As sunshine superstars

We see something certain

*

And when we put our heads together

We are ancient trees shimmering with mirth

Sharing the branches of time

Exploring land, sea and sky forever

Beauty in our vision

And for everything life’s worth

*

It’s easy to criticize

But its not fair to penalize me

They should really know

I aim to do my best

Toxic moments melt in to acceptance when we get well

I’d like to prove to you pure accidents made the mess

Hold onto empathy

and look past

To the bottom line

Don’t let a few safe swerves

Cause me to fail the test

*

Believe Believe

Achieve every breath

Achieve nothing less

Than our absolute best

*

From conception

Our dreams

Are all that we imagine

The view that we share

Determines how they grow

Let us hold confidence

in the soul of our dense brains

and keep ourselves connected

To life’s cosmic flow

Kind & Compassionate Fusion

Love we have

Hides beneath the seas

And above the skies

Within hidden hearts

And behind dedicated eyes

*

Dedicated to a way of life

And important causes

Dedicated to what makes us different

As we try to avoid losses

*

Could we share this love

Without conflict and confusion?

See eye to eye without so much

competition-driven illusion?

*

I mean well

You mean well

So why does it all go to Hell?

*

Why do people go hungry

living on the street?

Why do we wage war

when we’re the one we defeat?

Why don’t we say hello to everyone we meet?

*

How can we change things up so there’s less need to compete?

For basic needs and Safety

Money should be beat!

*

Love we have

Resides with friends and family

And can at times surprise

Common smarts

Catching dedicated eyes

*

Dedicated to being nice

Press play with few pauses

Dedicated to compassion and light

To join us in important causes

*

Could we share this love

With only care and communion

See eye to eye with clearly the most

Kind and fair solutions?

*

I mean well

You mean well

We each have a story to tell

*

That’s why some are lonely

And thrown to the street

That’s why we wage war

Looking for differences to defeat

Since we’re unable to learn about people we meet

*

How can we change things so there’s less need to compete?

For basic needs and safety:

Barriers should be beat

*

I mean well

You mean well

Still our lives can go to Hell

*

No way to get fired up without taking heat

When kindness is handled badly it brings defeat

Living is work yet we’re treated incomplete

*

When can we put these hours on the big time sheet?

For basic needs and safety

No one should have to beg, steal or cheat

*

Love we have

Hides beneath a deep freeze

And above fiery cries

Within false starts

And behind dedicated eyes

*

Dedicated to a better life

And best of causes

Dedicated to what makes us unique

As we become our own bosses

*

Can we share this love

Without competitive collusion?

See eye to eye with much more

Kind and compassionate fusion?
