The Motorbike

Motorcycle fast,
Kicking up a cloud of dust,
Speeding down the road.

The Raindrop Race

Watch the little drop,
Racing across the window,
Will it win first place?

A Different Look at Freedom

One way's happiness, the other gloom.
One way life, the other doom.
Straight ahead a bordem lurks,
Unseeable through lifes murk.
Look one way and then the other.
Consult with Father and with Mother.

Slavery is far behind.
Through the days that pass you'll find
In slavery you do not choose,
The jobs you do the tools you use.

If only slaves wern't worked so hard,
Their tired faces whipped and scarred.
If only master would give a break.
And not threaten like a snake.

Then slavery would be the life.
Without fighting, choices or strife.
But without Freedom there are no slaves,
So we need some people brave.
To be free, to be in command,
But no work others to the sand.

When the Tide Goes Out

When the tide goes out your day at the beach is over.
When the tide goes out all the shells on the sea bottom are uncovered, glistening in the 
fading sunlight like jewels.
When the tide goes out and you are gone, all the birds land on your sand castle and it 
collapses under them, scaring them to the next castle down the beach, till all that's left are 
piles of sand, for the fading tide to carry away.
When the tide goes out all the sea snails and hermit crabs come out for a breath of fresh air.
When the tide goes out you get to see the coral and moss-covered rocks, drying and 
hardening in the unwanted air.
When the tide goes out the beauty of the beach is uncovered, yet most of us aren't there to 
see it.
When the tide goes out.

Going To The Grocery

We’re going to the grocery,
To get some food for me.
Lets get those bananas,
But not that canna
Peas, please.
Oh cheese, did I say please?
Get some ice and corn oil,
Remember not to doil.
Some peanut-butter-and-jelly,
We need some more to fill this belly.
Let’s buy butter but not onions.
Turn right next-lets get some Funions.
Go to fruit and get green grapes,
Back to jelly-let’s make crapes.
Next to meat to get some caviars,
Over there-let’s get some deer.
While we’re here let’s get some bacon,
I just hope its not all taken.
Don’t you call me backseat driver.
We’re this store's number 1 buyer.
Turn around and we’ll get teabags,
Also some of those neat flags.
Now to candy-Reeses and Snickers,
Stoop a sec-you can see my knickers
Time to check out-can I have some gum?
Ouch that’s hot-it burned my tongue
Carry the bags to the car.
Now for the mall-how ‘bout Northstar?

The Storm

Cloudy skies are gray
Moisture falls in drops and plops
Flashes light the sky

Tarzan

Tarzan strong monkey 
Man swinging by lots of vines
Falling falling splat

A Whisper In The Wind

A whisper in the wind
Trying to convince me
Telling me of sins
He says they’ll make me mighty

He talks of robbing banks
And lots and lots of murder
And bombing boats that sank
They only make me sadder

He speaks like the devil
Telling me these lies
He thinks he’s on a whole new level
At convincing me, at least he tries

So never listen to the wind
Or you might find you’re doing sins

The Bird


            The Bird
 is a miracle creature. 
          It swoops around the sky.
              It has beutiful feathers and wings.
                    How can it fly? Some say hollow
                               bones.        I say...



                                                                                                                                       magic.

Accept the Reality

If death is part of life,
than life would not be
 whole without death.

If responsibility is part
 of growing up, then you
 couldn't grow up without
 responsibility.

If you and I are part of earth,
and earth is part of us, than 
we must all be one being, 
changing, morphing, shifting, 
flowing, like the blood beneath 
our skin.

The only thing that can change 
this is if 
death were not part of life, 
responsibility not part of growing up, 
or you and I and earth.
