The face of the ocean seemed to smile
All was calm and quiet for a while
‘Till Wind’s temper was lost
With waves forcefully tossed
In her wrathful cantankerous style
*For Carolyn Devonshire's Sea Tale Limericks contest
This is the only Limerick I have ever written...so it was a bit of
While buzzing one day around Beijing
my two faceted eyes saw something,
a man named Liu Xiabo
thrown in jail like cargo
Nobel Peace prize of no, he was hamstringed.
Fast flew I, to his fine mistresses house
and found the commies had lured his wife out
the press to waylay
on his special day
all the leadership could do was grouse!
Finding my way to Liu Xiabo’s cell,
it seems all free men here, live in hell.
He smiled with kind eyes
said “Ah, life’s the prize!
perhaps, I will arise, who can tell?"
*2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner for his efforts
in obtaining human rights in China was jailed
by his government.
There once was a wonderful star
Who thought she would go very far
Until she fell down
And looked like a clown
She knew she would never go far
She would land near the moon
every year a new base
every day a new race
works often done
life always runs
thinking past of ......
walking fast as...
life always run
without new base
minding up down
thinking lane down
race rather goes ,
for everyone here ,
no hurry in between
for been furious in between
do not be fast so means,
do not be much slow
it can hang you up
and can shut you down
race always goes
if you are together
there can be a success for you
for those ,
who winds up the race.....

Dagger Nunchucks Gi sword Wala
Hiding in the sewer
Got covered with manure
Fear not his weapons but hands haha
Once came along a groundhog named Phil
Looked for shadow in winters chill
Even top hat and coat
Didn't stop whining's gloat
Stuck six more weeks paying heating bill

The tumultuous whirlwinds had now ceased
The roaring, nettlesome sounds have dried away
The tide is now silent
The clatters and jangles,
now dead, they are.
Far and wide, the drumming sounds, ululations...
For the happiness, peace and calamity, found again
All is being born again.
The sky is blue
The dark-dark, huge, cumbersome and petrifying clouds
Have faded away
And now, white clouds are to be seen hither and thither
In the blue sky-scape, congregating
For the new rain of the new
the new downpour of joy and peace of nature.
With my hands,
I rubbed away the hot tears, at last
With a smile, i looked out
The thudding of my heart, had stopped, but gone
Relieved i felt, for the tempests, had flied away
I yawned, stretching my arms
Bad times, had reached their edges
The birds fluttered and warbled
Their sounds anew
Tickling my fancy
The swiping of the trees
buzzed with the cool breeze
and then, the sun showed up
with new lively alight, and
with the moon
they all smiled cutely.
All got in full swing
For the peace, and happiness had at last been restored
I danced along with the birds, soft wind and the trees
Dancing, to their tune
And with all the peace and happiness
Smiled back to the jolly sun and the moon.

The cola slurpee's not working again!
I don't want cherry,
Grape, or strawberry -
Only cola gives me that peace-like zen!
Our people respect Navy Seals
Their stealth earned applause
and great squeals
Yet nervous most wait
As from this fateful date
There's fear of Bin Laden's
The rabble's reaction was queer
To some of us it does appear
That no one has learned
What it means to be burned
And how from this nonsense to
He'd not have his calendar
He died before dying his beard
His head sheared with lead
Won't taste breakfast in bed
Osama won't see his death
In Florida one right hot summer
A free soul was havin' a bummer
So in spray painted undies
Next holiday Monday
He split to the Springs with his rummer.
Equally inspired by a net(te) comment and the lovely natural resources in North Florida
What flies though the air up above
Disguised as a peace seeking dove
For those who've not heard
Drones can send you the bird
From the land of brotherly love
Author's note: Is this really how to win friends and influence people (for the long term)?
< One by one they'll shall roll on and come
Like soldiers marching to beaten drums
Echoes are acknowledge
Cast across thy arched bridge
Haste makes waste even for everyone

My fathers’ cute little words and sayings,
Like, that is just for the birds, in lashings.
Akumpucky in way,
Epigutis he’d say.
My father was big man in displaying.
Akumpucky was cream or compound.
Epigutis was the disease he found.
His words were so very cute.
You would never try dispute.
Powerful man would win any round.

When I look around... I See that It's abound
Whatever it Is... It wants Peace
Peace of mind... An everlastingly Bind
No racketeering... It isn't Blind
It Sees More than what you see.
rushing inference, imminent insight
suddenly its clear, a gut feeling
syncopated, reverberated, totally aware
open bi-ways, ahh blue-sky days, making up my mind
synapses shiver, axons quiver, dendrites deliver
'lectrik-neurons fire suddenly in time
aha! aha! oh gawd I see, I ran around 'n cried
a fool I've been, all along its there, right in front of me
with a grin 'n a nod 'n twinkly-looking 'round
raised my arms 'n slapped my thighs
'n made a ruckus sound --
donned my hat 'n set it skewed
upon my big bright head
set off to town in an uplifted mood
while whistling a sweet sound
forgot what I had found
there's a hole in my head
where the wounds of reason seep
all words are dead inside my head
what's left is dark 'n deep
I'll always live
and always die
on the event horizon
of my mind's eye
where the flash
of neuronal fires
sudden epiphany --

I once met a man from the west
And invited him home as my guest
I told of the cross
He cried, "I am lost!"
Then repented and God gave him rest
They have kicked and kept him out of the military;
with the brutality of war he could not agree;
ah, but you see
now he's leading a batallion of a rebel army !
As I sit here in the shadows of what my life should be, I wonder if this pain I feel
will ever set me free
. The struggles I have felt so deep are carved within my soul the torment of the
years gone by will forever take their toll.
Upon this world, there has to be a greater force then fate, for when my days are
here and gone will I knell beneath the gate?
Is there really someone who looks over all of human kind, if there is then why
within my being the peace I cannot find?
My hands they shake and my bodies numb from the hurt my heart does bare, if
this is how my life should be, it does not seem quite fair.
They say life is what you make it; well then, I guess I made mine hard, for this I
will pay the biggest price, a mind and soul that’s scared.
I will look up to the heavens for the strength that I will need to try to face the days
that lay ahead, for the mercy I will plead.
Dear lord if you are really there please here these words I pray, grant me strength
this world with courage each new day.
I am asking for salvation for all the things that I have done, please grant me just
the peace of mind to feel a bright new sun.
The sun that shines on those with peace, who feel no pain within.
If you grant me this I ask I plead, my new life can begin.
A friend is what I am by night and day,
Regardless of what other people say,
Oh, the good thing you must note,
Is that peace and love I sought,
So sleep well, I take not your wife away!
