Fear Not

To Him
our deepest
thoughts
are like
diamonds
glistening.
To question
is not to doubt.
It just means
we're
listening.



NOTE: I was inspired by Paul Callus's and Eileen Manassian's comment, on my poem, The Stars Remain Silent.

Worte-wie-blumen

This wind is not alone because it stays on the height,
And waits for golden dawns that follow after night;
It crossed many tempests, islands and an ocean dark,
It met the fairies and hobbits and the joyous lark.

While flattening blond fields, it thought a paradox 
How Little Prince was taught on Friendship by a Fox:
While playing with the grass, and with the yellow maze,
While caressing the flowers’ feet, it heard a poet`s case…

This poet is like the hottest wind that lives on height:
Suddenly, his “light poetry” is seen as “poetry of light”.

At Journey's End - Grook


At Journey's End - Grook


Bygone years grow dim;
sifted memories remain...
longed-for yesterdays
filled with joy...no sorrow.
But time soon comes when tired hearts
hope only for tomorrow.

GROOK

He tells of how he bravely
fought the state's enemies
at the border quite lately.
Enemies would have conquered,
if not for his silent, courageous son.

Looney Tune Mentality

The very moment it's offered
we accept it blindly, no questions asked.
Yet every time we give something away
there is almost always strings attached.

Clever Dicks

       Life is a learning process
         Each day a useful test
    But some people, you’ll agree
     They are born with a degree
             Of self delusion
They’re the ones who know it best.

No Wrong Turns

When contemplating decision,
Remember...
There are no wrong turns,
Only unexpected journeys.

Gotta Run Down to the Store -

DAMN it, you stupid old fart!
Why did you pull out THAT cart?
That cart with the wobbly front wheel
And it squeaks! (How embarrassed I feel)
Oops...beg your pardon sweet ma'am
Yes, I know who I think that I am...
(Crash) Oh good god mercy me

POLITICAL MUMBLE JUMBLE

A name became famous and so did attention it brought to a race, 
A quotable slogan was formed speaking of political changes at haste.

From opposing sides as running mates they developed a relationship speaking of 
bipartnership.
Sending our Nations currency to foreign lands,
Take a moment off the Hill, look in your back yard to see our empty hands. 

This political mumble jumble as our children bellies rumble.

Shipping off our sisters and brothers to the battle fields,
Where fearlessly they fight and sadly some are killed,
They pray and wait to come home...come on now just sign a new Bill.

This political mumble jumble as our children bellies rumble.

Here is an idea! Give more of our taxpayer dollars to the trouble banks; they make no 
mistakes, 
While thousands of Americans lose homes, cars, jobs, and watch their life savings sank.

This political mumble jumble as our children bellies rumble.

The parties, the parades, the chicken, lobster, and veal,
The Senate, The Congress, The White House, and the Capital on the Hill,
The time has come to strengthen a nation of humankind on our own playing field.
From the view of the common man, it is ‘We The People’ that should be kept in mind, 
Every time approval is given to spend another dime.

This political mumble jumble as our children bellies rumble.

Dictate from One with out Power to Similar Ones who have Money and get Confused

Don't touch me!
For if you do you might feel.

Don't listen to me!
For if you do you might hear.

Don't look at me
in the eyes
for if you do you might
have the compulsion to question
what feels and sounds good.

Squeaky Wheel

There was a wheel that squeaked Not a sound in the world like it My senses were surely peaked Drove me crazy, gave me a fit The air in the tires leaked No piece of it worked, not a bit The whole bike when moved creaked I could do nothing but come sit Sound of the wheel sure freaked So I got off my bike and quit

Supermarket trolley for Grook Contest

No matter where I wander
Home is the other way.
Whoever pushes me
Always has a lot to say.
I am just a trolley, no brain, to resist
So why is it that I act as though !?!!
As I have been drinking.
Card around my handle says
Oil me please, for I have sinned.
Last trip out hit the litter bin.

My tears fall as rain --
Silver ponds of broken dreams;

Wind Noise

The truck ride becomes longer
Each time we go on a trip
Something has happened to a strip
Wind wheezes through each minute stronger

Human Being

being a human being 
means that we  
let things be…
no wonder this world
is like it is
so why not 
human doing?
human living?
human loving?

How will you egg your way

Dear atheist your unbelief

A Taste

Sometimes, I am afraid;
And would like to know
How life will taste

Deep Waters - Grook

 Sometimes we do things on a whim
 On impulse we jump right in
 We should think before we leap
 The consequences could be grim
 If  we jump in deep waters and can't swim!

Debt

It was collected with deal
It backfired with glee
Refunding with pain
Casting away the gain
Sweats burrowed the furrows
To move,we borrowed the barrows
The barons gave the limit
The fire cackled in the pit
I am hot from pursue
I'm told I''ll be sued
Who will stand for me?
It is debt!
And I am incepted
And I am shamed
That's what debt does to all.
