Joys of Christmas

Joys of Christmas may at times become darkened…
as the stresses mount, it all begins to takes its toll…
turning into frustration, tiredness, and sadness…

and I sought to think of what it’s all supposed to be about…
and what he said was the point of it all…

but sometimes the holidays push us to lose sight of that…
and then, though wanting to Love one another,
we seem to forget how…
and that’s when it (a sort of revelation) came to me…

when they brought the adulteress to him to be stoned,
he said to them, ‘let him who is without sin cast the first stone’…
in perceiving the depth of this simple statement,
my season became brighter…

and I hope yours does too…


Broken Wings

Surrounded by people
all with broken wings
tears begin to well

for they cannot fly
and I know not how
to mend broken wings.

But then I think
perhaps it’s only me
the tears start to flow

for I cannot fly
and am not able to mend
even one broken wing.


Fair Warning

He was once a tall oak tree
Standing, one hundred years bold.
Now he seeks air to breathe
Decrepit and old.

Look at what you’ve done
Hey! Look what you’ve done.
You beautiful people
So mean and so cold.

He was once a clear blue stream
Clear, cold, and clean.
Now he’s just a hole
So dirty and mean.

Look at what you’re doing
Look at what you’re doing
You silly ol’ people
So stupid and mean.

Well now He’s a comin’
A comin’ to see.
And He’ll start you a goin’
To follow that dream.

Look at what’s a comin’
You people so crazed
‘Cause now He’s a comin’
Comin’ to collect whats due.


On Election 2016

I’m fairly certain that most of you have some good opinion on which of the candidates (if any) for President of the USA should be awarded that post so I won’t get into it. But I *would* like to address a couple of issues that I believe are important but which I have not as yet seen/heard discussed.

First… since the election of John Kennedy back in 1960, I have encountered, read and heard of, people voting for the “lesser of two evils”. Not only does that expression speak for itself, but I think it also denotes a certain lack of honesty and integrity. How can any best candidate win an office if people are uninformed or, in a sense, lying with their vote. After all, if I really wish candidate C to win but I vote for candidate B, for whatever reason (example: because C “will never win and I don’t want A to win”), am I being honest or helping my chosen candidate to win? BTW… not voting, or writing in ‘none of the above’ (or “This Mouse”) is a vote… your vote… legitimate and important (and I wish it were properly acknowledged/counted). So for this election I encourage you to consider voting (or not) intelligently and honestly… for, not against.

Second… let us remember that no matter who wins or what shape you think this country is in, it (this country) is still predicated upon the *inviolate* principal that all men and women are created sovereign, equal, and free. This is what makes (or should make) the United States of America a great place to be. But this greatness (admittedly under fire) can only continue or be righted (depending upon your point of view) if we *all* stand up, accept, defend, and live within the constructs of “sovereign, equal, and free”… without animosity and with real respect. If we agree on “America, land of the free” we must choose to be (and really *be*) and allow others to be free… being civil, acting always with respect for each other’s rights. [for more see — Unity in Purpose – 10/21/12]

So vote your heart and mind, honestly… civilly… and then, with grace, accept the result… always continuing to act for the good of each other and this truly great (but, IMHO, a tad under the weather) country. But tolerate not dishonesty, injustice, or evil… for although a proper, individual kind of morality (one that truly makes a nation great) can never be forced, it may at times need to be enforced… yet, requiring it by an encompassing example is the key.


Sprinkle: glow in the dark

Two bikers were sitting at a table, drinking a few beers, smokin’ some weed, and talking…

“Nope, can’t buy any smoke for a while; have to save up for some tires.”

“Yeah? I can get you some good tires real cheap bro. I mean like 50%.”

“Yeah great, more five finger discount specials?”

There’s that sheepish look again…

“No thanks man, I told you before… look, I’ll say it again. Whenever you touch something stolen, some of it, kinda like oil or dirt, rubs off and sticks to you… only it sticks to your soul… it’s sorta like handling radium with your bare hands…”

“Yeah, so?”

“Well, eventually you glow in the dark…”


Sprinkle: Enough

Better to be satisfied with enough and be at peace
than to want more and be at war…
but tolerate not those who harm others.


Notes Upon A Sheet Of Music

immense silence,
pebbled with stars,
plays a melody
of colors and sounds

boundless wavelengths in endless flow,
an infinite variation of vibrations,
Energies and Forces and more and not,
are the unlimited many of One

too often unheard, unseen, or unfelt
this majestic symphony, a Divine song sung,
dressed in beauty, the fabric of Life,
its elegant motion makes perfect Time
