    Poems on the fly

    Finding me

    Somewhere in the depths of my being
    I know I will find me there
    I have been looking for so long
    The all encompasing silence deafens my ears
    The mind moves without end
    I looked for the door to where I could find me

    Everytime I found me
    I lost me again

    I was untraceable

    Like a crack in the universe
    My heart began to open

    I looked up towards the blazing sun
    I touched my hand on the solid earth

    The beating of my heart
    Became the sound of a million suns

    The me that I was looking for dissapeared

    Very nice!

    Your pale light
    shines down from the heavens

    My heart is satiated
    With the glow from my familiar friend

    For how long
    Have you lit up the darkness

    For how long have you shown

    Oh pale moon
    For how long will you be my friend

    Once again

    On this long night
    I am not alone

    .... Just a cowboy
    By Jim
    I went out like the others
    Full of breakfast knowing
    From now on for two weeks
    I had to survive on Cookies food

    Mornings came early, too early
    The ground was hard but I slept
    The day was long and the sun hot

    The saddle gets to a man in a painful
    Way after sittin in it all day and
    Riding hard. But on we rode, all of
    Us.

    These cattle had to make it to
    Market and it was we who got
    'em there. Counted, put in pens
    The cattle, not us.

    Now many of those cows are in
    Your grocery store, under plastic
    Put there by folks who didn't really
    Know about them like we do.
    Butchered, put on grills, served
    To laughing friends with beer,
    I didn't put 'em there....

    I was just one of the cowboys

    Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I digress....

    Ranchers Lament
    By Jim
    He stood there on the porch
    And watched as she rode off
    He felt hollow, empty inside


    He had saddled her horse for her
    He always did, she could do it
    But it was easier for him…..


    Now he wanted to ride after her
    Try again to convince her she would
    Get used to the loneliness of life on
    The ranch, he had tried before


    He thought of the work ahead
    The cows to be fed, horses to be
    Tended to, the ranchers day…
    He went out to work with no
    Breakfast, just a cup of coffee


    Not much to start the day but
    She had been his cook…
    She had been so many things
    And she was gone….


    Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I digress....

    This wonderful poem reminds me of one of my favorite songs of all time.

    Stardust....

    Waking up in the middle of the night,
    Sweating but not sure,
    Whether to flee or fight,
    I laid wakened,
    In my darkened bedroom,
    Still not sure if its day or night,
    I felt peace,
    But not at ease,
    Had I been running?
    Was that my sweat ,
    Or was I in a field of flowers,
    Among them as one ,
    Sunning,
    As my concious mind returned,
    I smiled while inside I churned,
    Was I in chains ,
    Was I in hell,
    Had I died and not very well,
    Why was I scared,
    I felt a need to be free,
    A need to run behind a tree,
    Who was it invading my mind,
    Why was I scared,
    Though the voice seemed
    Familier and kind,
    Where did that person go?
    Where did that person come from,
    I dozed off once more and slept,
    Then woke myself with my scream,
    It wasnt a a dream you see,
    The person I begged
    To " let me go free",
    Was me....

    The Reign

    As I reached up
    I touched a rainbow,
    Thru the beauty
    All turned sudden black,
    Something frightening ,
    A bolt of lightening?
    Or a knife across my back,
    Why am I in chains ?
    How did I reach the rainbow?
    Then the answer
    Came from above
    A message by white turtle dove ,
    It was " welcome home my child"
    Seemed odd,
    Then I realized I was
    No longer in chains,
    I was in heaven ,
    Reading this note,
    It was signed,
    "God"

    Cocoon

    Take away from me,
    My eyes if cant see,
    Take away from me ,
    My legs ,
    If I cant run,
    Take away from me ,
    My mind ,
    If its not me,
    Take away my words,
    If I dont speak,
    Take away from me ,
    My heart,
    Release it gently
    Into the sky,
    The wings of a butterfly,
    You may see,
    If so,
    The butterfly,
    Is me....
