I can see the big picture like an open pasture, 
I can see it all clearly…
It has always been this way
I can see multiple pieces of information
In many places at once
I can decipher the facts, the truth and significance

gentle wind comforting me
total vibe filled with glee
the scent of Christmas in the air
imagining a space with you standing there
inspiration growing in remembrance of you 
the effervescence of your iridescence shines through and through
i can still smell the spicy scent...Read More

one for big, one for small
my last appointment
my doctor let slip
"Alice... i mean
jeff" and then
i knew it
just was
n't me

more than
me because
my frame doesn't
fit the big picture but
seems to keep a frame
of particularly peculiar mind

thoughts that

Unanswered Prayer
Written: by Miracle Man

I’m thankful for those times, when God’s help was unseen,
When only HE could see the rock and hard place,
 That I was about to be caught betwixt.
Because HE saw things that lay in my future,
And I,...Read More

Big Picture Tease
Bogged down in the details,
truth is undone

Swimming through the corn flakes,
milk overruns

Looking at the forest,
seeing just trees

Life micromanaged

Step Back
Step back to move forward,
Step back to appreciate,
Step back to see the big picture,
Step back to avoid the precipice.

Step back stay in good health,
Step back before you lose all your wealth,
Step back before you become addicted,
Step back before your tongue...Read More

She's There
I don't want to write no more.
I wish God would open the door.
And end these endless thoughts of you.
Because when love is through it's through.

I don't know what you want from me.
I try to trust, but I can't see.
The big...Read More

Escape reality
and allow your imagination to reduce you
to a tiny, itty-bitty, microscopic speck
inside of a human vein.
Your world would be a strange one indeed,
embedded within a cell
you're afloat in a plasma river
teeming with white hunter cells
and rich red corpuscles.
Now shrink...Read More

The first time you tried to walk you fell,
look at you now staying up right so well,
often the first attempt at the unknown
is simply "chance" with luck thrown,
tough times challenge and cause stress
the first time writing you made a mess

it can't happen, or has it
Every day when I watch TV
I see the chattering classes

The TV pundits
And their guests

Pontificate about this and that 
And it seems to me 

That they are missing the big picture
In the era of Donald Trump

Nothing that they say
Will make a...Read More

Premium Member Two Idiots On The Freeway
An idiot driver cut in front of me on the freeway
Just because they did not get the big picture 
I have to slam on my brakes?
Could I let it slide?
Apparently not.
I threw my hands up like “what the heck?”
She gave...Read More

How Did We Get Here?

Like paper torn into pieces with the truth,
Always able to see the big picture, doing all I can
Yet, feeling like I am trying to put water on a raging fire
Only to have the wind keep blowing...Read More

when connecting each star

Personal Scenes of Mine
A walking track through the forest,
shrouded by giants, providing shade,
with broken boughs, leaf litter and life,
and a cool mountain stream in a glade.

This stranger can only see beauty,
where many see nothing at all,
it may be complex of a flower,
or a...Read More

Premium Member In a Ocean of Humanity
Can you see the person for the crowd
The big picture overshadows details
The choir drowns out a single voice
With everyone running can you sit down

Is it hard to breathe, in an ocean of humanity
swimming against the tide
no one by your side
Falling...Read More

I treat you with the utmost care.
I wear these white gloves to handle you.

As you were fragile,
easily dinged,
and breakable.

I didn't do it because 
I was frightened,
I did it for you.

But now I see
the hairline cracks, 
the chipped paint.

I let too...Read More

Can I Kartel You
You think you're Godzilla 
but you're just a Gorilla,
that's what happens when you've got gonorrhea,
my skin colours vanilla
my skills are killa and real
you're run of the mill, a fail
can't you tell you didn't do well,
that Kartel manure smell
of Kountry music...Read More

Last Letter to My True Love
If this is it
If you must go
These are my final words
The things I wish for you to know

They are quite simple
They come from my heart
They are what my soul screams out
When we are apart

Our situations complicated
Filled with the life we...Read More

I am sitting at the secretary’s desk, the biggest conference score.
I am a voyeur today, thirteen screens, show the playgrounds and the door.
Thirteen screens showing parental visitors moving to and fro,
Screens that feature students with their moms, a great big...Read More

Behind A Frowning Providence -Isaiah 45: 14-25
Walking in this dark world of woe
it seems that even as God's chosen child
our God seems so often to be so distant
leaving His own alone among what's wild

But in reality, God is always there
looking and watching over His dear one

Spin in Space
42 years old almost 43
Getting older now I can see

The big picture is brighter now 
Dealing with it I don't know how

Watching the rat race
Spin in space 
Holding on to faith
That we are in the right place
Obeying the old mighty...Read More

Pixelated of Homogeneous

And when you wake up it’s a good time
and you had the drugs
yer! you spun them up
searching for a good time
seems to cost so much
buying into a narcotic vein mixed with blood

A tiny window
do you think that’s enough

Always question everything.
Nobody finds the truth without questioning anything,
especially in the face of lies.
First truth, age doesn't determine how wise one is.
Talk to people who are older than you
and you'll find some who know less than you,
for only good practices...Read More
