Springsteen Diapers & Wine



later on in the village there were aristocrats and thinkers

junkies, flunkies & hippies

the poetry added to the mood

a cosmic tapestry

the pool of Springsteen on the main stream


ever falling

a mother changes her baby’s diapers;

let the music sooth you for real


Wine with a block of cheese

falling to your knees

spreading its disease

singing “Sandy girl” down by the beach;

the sweetness of her wine

shades of Pine

created from a grand design

everything is quite fine

sipping on cherry wine







Smile Is Contagious



let’s love one another brother stop all the hate going around

be proud of who you are on the inside and choose

to become a beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love;


love is the mere essence of the fabric of my existence

don’t ever try to join up in its resistance

we can move mountains of evil in our way

those that never confide to bow the knee to pray

but is there another way?


faceless victims with viscous fangs that bite dripping blood off side

yet I seek comfort in a higher power

my very soul permeates with a reason to share such love

from a candle light vigil to passing the torch

we are living in a land so very mean


Smile is contagious so pass yours on,

sing a lively tune or a love song

the vibrancy of lost exploits from a time ago

having so much fun with a tender hope that it would last,

the get togethers at the beach

trying to catch that frisbee way out of reach

walking hand in hand along the shore

never felt like this before for you were all I was searching for

kicking the tin can in the street

the ice cream man came by with a heavenly treat


back the way it used to mean something to hold open your door for your neighbor

wearing your finest at the mall with the gel in your hair

for I shed a single tear cause you were never there

to bask in the vast expanse of rich tender love

coupled with a heart filled with gold

mark the one willing to explore

so much more with a smile

cause you knew all the great while

it was there all the time what I had been searching for


so today tell somebody there special never forget them

there is always a great lesson the more you keep on confessing

like a rainbow in the dark you lit the inner spark to what it is I’m searching for


when you’re smiling the whole world smiles with you

when you’re dancing truly dancing the sun keeps shining through

but when you’re laughing truly laughing the rain won’t fall on you

learn to share with one another the treasure of love






The Hummingbird



through a window port onto soaring heights in flight

as the Hummingbird dwells to tell

we stand in ovation to the servanthood

of a new day’s dawn, a portion of dust on the patio


a tug at the heart will light the inner spark

to where we need to go to – places unknown

there’s a falling of embers, sad

but we have bitten off far more then we could ever chew


balance for power swept things under the rug

stop the fragrance of sin, where to begin?

deep thoughts permeate through the sultan sheets

a cloud in dire grey matter


I can see a vision in your eyes

with thoughts of clear view overlooking are dwelling

the insides of my heart will light the inner spark

to where we needed to go


I’m in aid of solvent thoughts of liquid base

there’s perils to pull your heart away

the vast opened door by which to humbly explore

in awe so much more
