Prejudice Flavoured Soup
Soup views,
prejudice but for a few,
I know this true,
rumours reach you,
I have loads of views
but not on soup,
shame on you
carry on I will
write how I feel
when your bubble bursts
to death you rot
I will write on with thirst
and you will not

~~~~ For My GrandMa....


Speak to me in many waters
Wash away the dirt and grime
Lay my body upon the alter
Transform me to another time
May I be in line _ the first
To press you palm upon my breast
Quench this dry unending thirst

I wrote a song and sang it badly
The content was such they listened gladly

But the latter a failed preclude deluded truth  
And you can’t damage what damaged

maybe I didn't hold his hand tight enough
"That maybe,
I didn't hold his hand tight enough..."
is the line most bittersweet, rough --

I imagine Mattie wished Jamie had stayed
as he held his hand, as a child -- prayed

Wishing, perhaps... had he held it tighter,

The Songwriter
I'd like to write a song
I thought that would be fine
One that is original
Much more than just one line

Not rely on the music
As some writers are prone to do
The lyrics should be different
Not Yah!Yah or Boo De Boo

The musicians are...Read More

Lonely Night
Although your song
Is heard in the morning 
Little blackbird 
Don't sleep in your nest
But sing through the lonely night.

musique forspel till bristande oro
they dug deep trenches in the forest
cut down large trees
to cover these trenches
they made rooms
and covered the logs with clay
and piled dirt atop, and
used leaves to make it appear as if
they were walking on solid ground.
they made a chimney deeper...Read More

Kaleidoscope eyes

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
sailing along with the moon in your eyes
Following dreams found to make your heart quiver
with tangerine trees and marmalade skies

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
counting the words in between all your sighs
Seeing...Read More

Morning love song


I gazed upon an orchid sky and thought that I heard singing
a melody adrift the morning breeze
So lovely were the harmonies in happiness now bringing
meandering through barren autumn trees

I listened for a while to the wonder I was hearing

Thus Mother Mary came to me, telling me the score
To long: wasted time on a lower vibration, no more

So your spirit can rise again, not remain on this low

Premium Member Love at Twilight
How large the bloodshot sun seems today.
Yet it is dying, its flaming rays ineffective.
After a long hot day, tired, it must be spent.
So patiently it descends out of humanity’s view
Far across the sea, behind the shimmering horizon.

Quietly the moon takes...Read More

Like peppermint canes, the icicles twist
Red and white lines wrapped in frosty mist

Sleigh-bells ring out o'er snow-covered field
Songs and laughter to hugs and kisses yield

Breathe deep the pure air, this season of joy
Every heart transformed to tender girl or sweet...Read More

Come with me a’ walking
this chilly autumn eve
Along the vast horizon
where two hearts can believe

Following the sunset
winding down the way
Leading to our paradise
in nature’s found display

Shaded by an oak tree
you and I we lie
Contemplating every dream
under an amber sky

Counting constellations,

who so ever
who's loved by this woman
who brings love to bare
she is wrong in doings

she doesn't care

she has men all around

she follies
in relations
and neither man

tulips and wine mello chello and bassoon

and it's us I'm speaking of

Our Cliched Hearts Have Repeated Themselves to Death
We should get some ammunition for the soul
A fierce-looking stranger is always on patrol
And he mutters this curious sentence under his breath:
“Our clichéd hearts have repeated themselves to death.”

That we should live...Read More
