    The Road


    As we look back
    Down the highways and the byways,
    Of our lives,
    We see the things that make us,
    The things that gently take us,
    Back in time,
    The happiness the heartbreaks,
    The days we felt so alive,
    We wake up to the sunlight ,
    Slumber to the twilight ,
    Sometimes we cry,
    Sometimes we smile ,
    For everyones a part of it,
    The fabric of what makes it,
    All worthwhile..

    This was not so much a poem. This is a description of what I was seeing in my minds eye before and during the time I wrote it. Pardon the lack of balance in the words but I wrote it in 2-3 minutes and didnt want to begin thinking on it as I felt it would dilute and interrupt what I was describing. "Tis what it is...sometimes at its worse is better than Twas never was" ..cottonism

    Touch..

    We can take our days in earnest,
    Or deny the beings we've become,
    We can stoke the embers of our hearts,
    Or deny those of whom plays a part,
    Take a moment to smile with me,
    As memories of us will be,
    Touch your heart with hands
    In motion,
    The warmth you feel ,
    Comes from me...

    That was a wonderful poem, my favorite by far. You expressed it well.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    Thank you. In keeping with the thread title " poems on the fly" it was completely unfiltered as is every poem ive writtem here. That poem was different in that I expressed what I saw in my minds eye as opposed to what I felt.

    Youre being much to kind but ill take it. I love to write because it captures that moment in time. I have found setting a metronome to about 80 bpm keeps me focused for those few minutes. I may just be another hack but as you know I have no qualms about throwing down a few words. Dam the torpedos, one might say

    "Twilight"

    I walk along ,
    Lifes busy mile,
    I stop to cry,
    I move to smile,
    Were things that I lost,
    Things simply not found,
    Were yesterdays reasons,
    Steadfast or just seasons,
    Were things that mattered to me,
    Simply thrown down,
    Cause I'd rather be free,
    Is life a price we all pay,
    In darkess we dwell,
    To understand day?

    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….

    That was beautiful. Thank you Jim

    To " just another manic monday "
    "JUST ANOTHER DAY AT DISNEY"

    People acting crazy ,
    Others being being lazy today,
    Some here love their parents ,
    Others probably chopped them in half,
    Jack and Jill walked in,
    Jack never walked out,
    Its just another day at Disney,
    At Disney,
    Theres a big ass fight ,
    Thats the second one tonight ,
    The big dude from the South ,
    Punched a smartass in the mouth,
    They were outside smoking ,
    Now ones arm is broken for sure,
    Good thing theres no keg,
    Or he would have a broken leg,
    Fractures , cuts , contusions ,
    Orthopedic fusions for sure
    Its just another day at Disney!
