The Finding Of Heaven

THE FINDING OF HEAVEN

Maybe we don’t need to find Heaven
It’s already here – Too busy to notice
Still nice to find you standing by me
Thank you – Likewise – Simply breathe

Fellow Travellers: Shadorma

FELLOW TRAVELLERS

We’re always
Travelling alone
Companions
Merely serve
To distract us from what is
Inescapable

Fellow Traveller: Shadorma

FELLOW TRAVELLER

Perhaps we’ll
Meet along the way
Share a loaf
Recount our
Adventures and disasters
Then go on our way

Without Bars: Four By Six

WITHOUT BARS

Prefers to drink at home
The alcohol’s cheaper
And being by yourself
The company’s better

Sugar For Salt

SUGAR FOR SALT

May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions
Be sure never to let your fear
Seed hatred toward others
May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions

May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions
If you’re not part of the solution
Then you’re part of the problem
May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions

Crash On The Levee (Down In The Flood)

Crash on the levee, mama
Water’s gonna overflow
Swamp’s gonna rise
No boat’s gonna row
Now, you can train on down
To Williams Point
You can bust your feet
You can rock this joint
But oh mama, ain’t you gonna miss your best friend now?
You’re gonna have to find yourself
Another best friend, somehow

Now, don’t you try an’ move me
You’re just gonna lose
There’s a crash on the levee
And, mama, you’ve been refused
Well, it’s sugar for sugar
And salt for salt
If you go down in the flood
It’s gonna be your own fault
Oh mama, ain’t you gonna miss your best friend now?
You’re gonna have to find yourself
Another best friend, somehow

Well, that high tide’s risin’
Mama, don’t you let me down
Pack up your suitcase
Mama, don’t you make a sound
Now, it’s king for king
Queen for queen
It’s gonna be the meanest flood
That anybody’s seen
Oh mama, ain’t you gonna miss your best friend now?
Yes, you’re gonna have to find yourself
Another best friend, somehow

Appreciated (30d)

APPRECIATED

Kindly words
Never come amiss
Both hearts are
Uplifted
Let us ensure they never
Go out of fashion

Evening On The Porch (3a)

EVENING ON THE PORCH

Fine balance
Revelry subdued
October
Decked in leaves
I your Spring, you my Autumn
Soundless harmony

Books Rule (A Four By Six)

BOOKS RULE

Recalling a childhood
Seeking companionship
Family or authors?
Sad to say no contest

Ani

Allegic To Ani

ANI

Half a world away
One mind one heart united
Whatever that means

PTSD (A Four By Six)

PTSD

Disturbing images
Still after all this time
Scratches soon disappear
Scars remain forever
