MOON and SEA

~Moon & Sea~

Hey boy won't you open that door?
Let's sing and walk by the shore

Come and spread out your eyes
Block looking for reasons, and whys?

The cosmos are more than a space to explore
Don't hide when I need.... Plus more.

Finish playing a master in disguise!
Lets find the perfect sunrise, sunset surprise. 

Put your arms around me
Allow your moon to reflect off my sea

Too much time has passed you by
Come outside with and view the horizon up high

I've got my eyes set upon you
There's no need to feel blue

Hey boy comes, climb up this tree!
I'm going to show you all the things you can't touch, you can't see.

Lets fit the luxury and beauty of this world into our play.
Don't say them words that will set me free to walk away.

Take this kiss and see how it feel deep within your heart.
Close your eyes in my garden, and draw with the fragrance of art

I want to take you into that space, astronomy love.
Making it easy to float with the clouds way up above.

Glide away from the blame of gravity and self destruct.  
Bounce of the dust of hurt when you fall and get cut.

Boy, let's hold in this perfect air together.
Leave the cold end of someone else's weather.

Follow me beyond the distance of chemistry.
I will expose your moon and explain the physics of my sea. 

Give it another chance and you will see!
Your moon, is skin deep, needing water from me. 

Turn on the tune in your heart, and listen to me. 
In every sunrise, the moon entwines with the sea.

Breathes

Some lives are like a stone quickly skipping over the ponds top, forever tossed.
My life is below the surface trying to reach upward with each breathe lost.
But there is still beauty, deep down here in the great depths below…
For the solitude holds me in its grip as I dwell with what I know.

My occasional trips to the surface leave me vastly wanting more…
Still, my life below the surface doesn’t scare me as it did, once before.
And the breaths will come when given, as my life continues to flow.
True it is dark but beauty lingers, everywhere the currents move below.

At times, the surface reflections seem surreal, as if it’s a place not to go.
Comfort comes more and more to my soul, as the deeper I glide below.
Here I dwell within myself, with words, and thoughts, that carry me along.
Perhaps I have found where I truly belong, as I sing my siren songs.

Nature's Art

There’s no comparison to Nature’s Art;
It’s seen with the eyes and felt with the heart;

I see it in the trees and the ground that I walk,
In the prance of the deer and flight of the hawk;

The unearthly quiet before a thunderstorm hits,
The sulfur and electricity that a storm emits;

The mighty mountains standing tall with pride,
An artwork that can be seen far and wide;

A blank canvas that nature made all it’s own,
From the air that I breathe to a moss covered stone.

MONA LISA'S SMILE

La Gioconda or Mona Lisa is the name I’m called When our eyes meet I know you’ll be enthralled I sit here so serenely in my gorgeous gilded frame People flock to see me, they love to say my name Mona Lisa, people coo as they look at my lovely smile I gaze back intently, my sweet smile it does beguile My Parisian home’s been the Louvre for many years One glimpse of my face can move my visitors to tears I used to worry that I’d get bored hanging high upon the wall But with a constant stream of admirers I don’t get bored at all Painting Chosen - The Mona Lisa By Leonardo Da Vinci Contest: Within a Gilded Frame Sponsored by Broken Wings 05~08~16

Words Not Heard

When words can't be seen and smiles aren't felt,
we fall onto paper and drip and melt...

We spread colors of blue and grey to highlight
an early morning sigh, and splash and orange tint
on a late afternoon high...

Late at night I will paint my sky a dark black, and
with just my fingertips sprinkle stars that stay intact...

When words finally return and a Poem is read, the background
is my painting of colors from a dreamer not dead....

Meditation is soul searching

Music, art of sound, pitch, rhythm
Meditation, art of disciplining mind, body in tandem

Music harmonises senses, eases tensed up muscles
Meditation calms mind freeing it from weed of entangles 

Music, the way is from ears to senses through mind 
Meditation, the way is from body to no-body, from mind to no-mind

Music is instrumental in mind and body harmonising
Meditation is dropping mind and body for soul searching

The Law of Faith

"The Law of Faith"
by:  Eric L. Boddie

I would like to inform those who just don't know the half
Man can corrupt anything except for Truth and math
But when it won't add up, they start to multiply their lies
So in order to have something real, division must arise
And just think of the remainder, a mere fraction of self
Always needing common factors to feel complete breath
Some will use substitution, others will choose elimination
To solve the system of Life's complex equations
It just depends on the situation, how was the problem derived
If it can't be integrated, it must have come from inside
That is called false pride, that's its natural base
And to calculate E, you need infinite space
And you only have one face, you can only subtract one Life
That proof was in the Induction Of Jesus Christ
The Identity Of Sacrifice As Given By The Word
The Co-Sign Was By The Father, The Son, And The Holy Spirit, How Superb

God's Concrete Poetry/Art

Man is an excellent work of God---
His visual poetry or art, out of mud.

Being one of God’s many creations;
Man must not forget his obligations.

Thou, man know God’s everywhere;
And yet, he does not bother to care.

Either man lives by God’s command,
Or, he will not live in a promise land.  

Man must take this into consideration,
If indeed his heart craves for salvation.

Brewing Darkness

Beguiling placidity of luring hiss
Upon the oblivion of a venomous kiss

Like the grasping toxin of a viper’s sting
Amidst a violet lullaby the night-sky would sing,

Sable sky, O reflection of debility
Clutching the soul into peaceful futility

With your visage so pallid, and O so white
 Shining above clouds ashen as the night,

Brewing darkness, dwelling with might
Tearing the sun as your opaqueness ignites

Approaching you emerge with eternal power
All orbs fade as dreams devour…

SCENERY TO PAINT

SCENERY  TO PAINT



Every day we  reviewed them in  parade attitude
Along the Snake River in the Tetons’ solitude,
Or at attention on the banks of  the Volga
In  the infinite taiga  -

In neat ranks along river terraces
Warm dark  firs mixed with yellow acer,
All with the wind slowly leaning,
Their branches  across the river-ice signalling

To great endless squadrons of their fellows :      
In spring with  their  full  flowers  - yellows :
An army in a gold and topaz uniform
Ready and waiting for orders  to fall in and conform ;

And in fall with their rich golden foliage
Always polished and  ready for duty with courage.  
In poor soil, in tough climate,  these were heroes
Prepared for all their tomorrows.

Each morning  we watched “Reveille” parade
In the dawn’s early light; and the evening shade 
Gave  “taps”  for that  heroic multitude -
The  taiga’s  topaz army,  in  golden solitude.

A PAINTED FRAME

I sat on the couch 
with a cup of tea in my hand,
with the hot touch 
I was glad to see,

The sky in different shades of brown
with the gleaming sun
on the tree sat like a crown
for having some fun.

The village was covered with sand and rocks 
but the hills stood fairly proud,
though the landscape looked beautiful 
the mesmerising was the cloud

with its hands broadened fairly....
The birds flew in every which way
flapping its wings orderly,
fled towards the farthest bay.....

The folks striking hard
for their survival
in this sarcastic world,
where we ourselves are the rival

The glittering  queen laughs,
as these folks struggle under her ,
she showing no mercy,
rules the day in her high throne......

Flowing Ink of the Mind

Positioned is the brain, writing tool, paper or book until the inside technically responds, static is the look. The mind standing as the intellectual portal is an excellent feature of being mortal. Receiving sensitive signals no matter how small from the eyes the one in the inside more in activity, function and size. Then comes the needed transmission called inspiration a careful write with some processing gives fascination. Wheels of sight roll continuously to really see the revelation then emerges from the hidden sea. Navigating each thought which is fully anointed concludes on sweet words carefully appointed. Undefined is the time frame of a session forcing out ideas can put the mind under pension. Meandering sense to impress and fit into any logical rule the crafted final piece, over it is the time to mull. Thinking, writing and thinking again follows each penned stroke nowhere near baked, still wearing an old cloak. Adjustments and perfections consistently injected in each trace makes the refined piece to other minds a welcoming place.

Beethoven's Lost Composition

"It happened at dusk, on the eve of my bed
a series of symphonies out of my head
Whistles and pattering, octaves outstretched
Violins wailing and tubas distressed
Starlight shone into my window in white
heaving my breath with this musical sight
leaving my features and shadows in grey
while the melody mastery started to play
First all the strings, then came the percussion
Brass building stamina, with no discussion
Drums most determined and then all at once
the notes of the piano, fortissimo jaunt
Lights popped and fizzled and wrinkled in time
Walls bending backwards a musical rhyme
Bass like a heart beat moving the air
all in the blink of an eye, I was there.
My skin soaked and battered, my eyes shining bright
all concentrating on motion, on flight
After they slowed I beamed with devotion
and stood on my tiptoes, a standing ovation
I've packed solidarity into my chest
to tell you this story, to truly impress
for it happened at dusk on the eve of my bed
a series of symphonies out of my head"

Monet's Water Lilies


A canvas washed with pastel hues
In palest pinks and liquid blues
Perfection seen through Monet’s eyes
Recounting where his genius lies

The lilies floating on the lake
The water, greenish blue opaque
A fluid mix of subtle tints
A flowing dream with fragile glints

This work of art from sable brush
Perception, depth, a hazy blush
This masterpiece both cool and warm
All bound up in poetic form

To gaze in awe, to stand and stare
To find oneself transported there
The tranquil view, unbroken, whole
Will heal the heart, rebuild the soul

The peace, the calm, the beauty rare
The artist’s gift for all to share

PHYSICS of the MOON

Physics of the moon
 
I feel the lunar ecstasy in your heart
Connecting our vibes from over 1500 miles apart
 
With every swing of my mood ring, my sensational heart will sing
An out of this world phenomenon tune, "you are my everything!"
 
Absorbing every phase the moon goes threw
Sending energy between me and you
 
When our eyes meet on the darkest side of the moon
Your body mass rotates like a cyclone hitting my land like a typhoon
 
Like the gravity that bonds the earth and moon together
Our souls will collide with a massive force of forever
 
The image of you appears at all times like a moon cycle
Like a cascade running all around my mind, like a halo circle
 
Our love and vision orbits through every star
Giving us light no matter how near or far
 
The stars throb around the moon like a secret signal in the night
While you inhale my energy that exceeds into the morning light
 
Like a rainbow that enters and vanishes into the twilight of our sky
Our first kiss under the moon beam will twist our tongues into a tie
 
A sweet magnetic shadow will remain under the half moon
Sweeping our love above the clouds to float like a balloon
 
Holding a reflection with the moon's tide
Our journey continued, side by side
 
Emerging our love to find its way soon
Like a love mirage with the physics of the moon

Music

Music, music, it’s in the air,
Here is a list of what I hear:

A B C D E F G
(1 e & a) (1 2 3)

Rhythm, beat, timing, and tempo,
Fermata, rest, and accelerando,

Forte, piano, half, and whole,
Quarter, dotted, and staccato,

Sharp, flat, and natural, too,
4/4, 3/4, 6/8, and 2/2,

Measure, scale, and arpeggio,
Chord, seventh, and legato,

Major, minor, and decrescendo,
Crescendo, seventh, and ritardando,

Staff, spaces, lines, and strings,
Sixteenth, in-tune, and fingering,

Woodwind, brass, position, and trill,
Treble, bass, mellow, and shrill,

Percussion, composer, style, and key,
Quickly, lively, somber, and freely,

Triplet, tone, tied, and up-beat,
Pick-up, slur, eight, and down-beat.

You may hear music here and there,
But I hear music everywhere.

Black and white, white and black

Black and white, white and  black;
Is one something, the other it’s lack?
They go well together each piano key,
On the written page, and old photography.

White and black, black and white;
Doesn’t always look quite right.
Depending on your contrast setting,
Shades of gray might be all you’re getting.

White and black, black and white;
The presence or absence of light?
Manipulated by shutter speed and lens,
Or repetitive thatching with black pens.

White and black, black and white;
The artist must decide what is right.
On the page, what’s most reflective
Depends entirely on the viewer's perspective.

Mark Halliday: WarriorPoet

Mark Halliday

Son of a California Englishman
And a small-town Utah Mormon.
In his youth, nothing extraordinary;
Later served in Europe as a missionary.
Pianist, marching flutist, then a Guitarist;
Enlisted to be an Army Intelligence Analyst.
Speaks French; spoke Spanish, Russian,
Serbian, Croatian, some German and Macedonian.
Has resided mostly in California.
Spent months or years in Makedonija,
La France, le Belgique, Deutchesland,
Kuwait, Iraq; in the USA: Maryland,
Utah, Massachusettes, Kansas,
Arizona, Missouri, and Texas.
Of course, he’s known here as poetic,
But with charcoal, pens, and pastels is artistic.
He’s starting to slow down due to age,
But loves to sing original songs on stage.
During the French Bicentennial, went to Paris,
Where he met his future Mrs. 
Has sons Steven and Tony, wife Nelly.
They’ll soon celebrate their silver anniversary.
Like many other military veterans,
He works with Dept. of Defense civilians….
Commuting between Salinas and Monterey
(Defense Language Institute, Presidio of Monterey).
He loves to read (especially military science fiction),
Go to cinemas, and grow food in his garden.
He’s interested in music production software,
And dreams his songs will someday go somewhere.

The Art of Listening

I was read to as a child,every night at bed
Fairy tales, short stories, prose, or poems is what was read
Beatrix Potter, Mother Goose, Childcraft books were chose
But my favorite things to listen to were poetry and prose

I learned these things all by heart knew,when to turn the page
Mom thought I could read quite young ,was advanced for my age
But I was a fooler to those around ,cause I would memorize
Each page that was read to me, my reading was just lies.

I was fortunate to have a Mom that was well versed in liberal arts
I was read all sorts of things and would recite different parts
I listened to many poems from Percy,Keats,Frost and Thoreau.             
Wordsworth,Longfellow, Lord Byron sometimes we wouldn't know.

When a child is read to when very young they get well versed in rhyme.
Then writing them as they age is something that fills their time.

THE UN-BEETABLE BUG

THE UN-BEETABLE BUG Simplicity, elasticity, beauty in the thirties, not like some sedans, ugly and beastly This popular car and it's history from the past, from it's World War two template, it sure did last How many know why it's being came to be, a car for the German people, to what you've seen The Sixties starts the decade of the Summer of love, unique form of the bug fits these times like a glove Born in Germany in yellow, black, blue or white, but see I desire the color red so alluringly bright Won't you agree, it looks sexy, pretty and nice? This models size and style sparkles to burst some spice Its voluptuous rounds makes it friendly and sleek, to busy roads and highways surely it can easily sneak It may look slow but I tell you: you are wrong! This small car runs like the shooting star song. Alongside trucks or vans, it doesn't tremble a fear as when I turn the key, horsepower shy with its gear. Easy so easy, I can turn the wheels to any curves soothing so soothing to my sometimes worried nerves Many a design of automobiles will pass but hey, my red Volkswagen still holds the class. The "un-beetable" Beetle bug definitely hits a big shot to a parking lot you can easily save her a spot ___________________________________________________________ 12/30/2015 15.55pm

Unknown

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Todays Good Deed

Today’s Good Deed

In your open hand
I placed a red rose petal upon it

You looked up at me in puzzlement
Curiosity won over fear

I replied “ the rose petal fell from the sky”
As I tried to capture and hold, it fluttered to your hand

I am sorry, was not I… simply the wind
You smiled retrieving your hand back to the pen

umm, ummm , excuse me miss
Sorry to disturb encore

You looked up, maybe even wishing me gone
I looked down, how does one fix that frown?

These by the way are for you, please, absorb the fragrance
Twelve lovely red roses

Oh but now your face is the absolute same color
Your frown is a smile

Alas beauty has fallen onto beauty
The mist of yesterdays tear, evaporates

but but but stranger man, why me?
The rose petal was a sign for us both you see

You so wished to know there is kindness in this world
I so wished to make anyone at all smile, even but for a moment

So you see, we both have achieved a goal today
I bid you good day, wishing thee well with flowery bouquet

Off I went, across the street, lurking in the shadows
Following close behind, almost empty street

Behind, a wire quickly wrapped around the neck
I slit the throat, blood spurting to the skies

Shock and wonder, why why why?
Death though came fast, I walked away

The roses made her smile only for a moment
Ah but her stalkers death by my hands.............

Shall wipe the sadness and frown
Her fears you see, I just drowned

In blood

Looking For Time

Looking for time on roads causes wonder
Where will they lead, here, there or under
Possibly an object to hold in the hand
But seeming more nebulous flowing like sand
It's threads are woven to sunlight and gold
With power that moves stars in heavens untold
It is unseen with strength so great
Worlds it does crumble, worlds it does make
What is its virtue, from where has it come
Where will it go in a moment or none
Has as it's prisoners those small and great
Nothing escapes it, all must on it wait
It can't be captured and placed in a jar
Is it here, or there, can it be far
It spools unseen for all to have wonder
Without its dominion be all cast asunder
Traveling back is forever disavowed
Forward the only law that's allowed
Heavens are clockwork run by its measure
When it has ended all is lost, gone forever
Darkness would cover worlds such as this
Creation would perforce cease to exist
Such is called time but none see or hear it
It brings the workings of all who know it
If the unwary would seek where it goes
Find them it's fabric solely in black holes
This is the nature of that force called time
A word well known but not yet defined

Tomorrow never comes 
It is always tomorrow

In Ballerina Stance - RePost

Amidst a cacophony of sounds, discordant they're not Through progressive ears we're internally sought We, well we await, we await black drapes Lights are our signal, to enjoy their create Strobes through mists, signal our time Silhouetted shadows appear, it's now just after nine In Ballerina stance, proud like she poses Arms outstretched like petals of roses She, Kim, of Touchstone effect Through their music her voice, such melodic select Prelude now generates as we await corded streams Receivers we are, appreciating their musical dreams Spotlights in sporadic dance, like silent sirens in the dark In seconds they soon touch, we the Blacktide no longer stark On this night in concert, we became one and all Strobe lights show their appreciation, bowing when shadows fall . Sadly Kim has had to take a break from the band due to illness, hence re-post.

Scarey Poem

let's start with a line and see where it leads
People like blood so I will make mine bleed

a zombie a chainsaw perhaps some bats
For good measure I'll throw in some black cats

I'm running out of ideas I think
Something is bad, it's a terrible stink

Have you heard the one, about the sparrow
He let loose excrement, on the Pharaoh

Oh what a horror, the bird felt so bad
The Pharoah in anger, yelled out egad

Archers at the ready, shot the bird down
Pharoah bit of wings, wore them on his gown

He fed the birdie to his own black cat
The cat so happy it meowed where it sat

Mummys and bats they make me want to scream
Most of the horrors come from my own dreams

Dancing disjointed, what do I have to loss
Bones I crunched, I removed with dental floss

Let's finish with a flurry, a mad dash
A horrible fungus, a scabby rash
