To Buddy Wherever He Is

Sometimes I think that sense is made in the malady of thought, as the spinning top always stops after the last revolution, and if we are not too dizzy in our day dreams we will find sense enough to finally understand that life is never the way that Mother said it should be.

To Buddy




To Buddy

Oh, if man could only fly,
Like seagulls near the sea side,
Like Phaethon’s wish.
I would fly to you
My Brother Dear
In the falling times.

After the Long Walk Home


Yet, home and earth
Are where true hearts rest
After the long walk home
Comes to a close,
As ancient relics like ours must
Deep in the mother’s breast,
Spurred on to pounder the possibilities,
The songs that rise at night
Whispered through the tall trees,
This is such a sad, sad note
We sing to you
My Brother Dear.

And Dream As Siblings


Now we are standing
Where fall and winter come together
And dream as siblings do
In the hard times,
Drenched in the cool
Clear blood
Of heaven’s clouds,
Drenched in the blood
Of our father’s

In the heart of the desert,
My Brother Dear.

When Sunshine Turns


It was autumn who sent the wind workers
To fall the leaves of red and gold,
To pick them up again when they get old,
Find a place for them
In the softened sod of Mother Earth
Before the snows come,
Before sunshine turns cold.
I want to kick a pathway
Through the leaves,
Bury myself in the open hole there,
Next to you, and watch
As the stars in heaven
Spin forever around us.

Like Phaethon’s Wish


Oh, if man could only fly,
Like seagulls near the sea side,
Like Phaethon’s wish,
I would fly through the falling times
I would fly to your desert
And be with you forever
My Brother Dear.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

His having taken the long walk all alone...
having left the pal he once called his own ..
brings tears to my eyes..
but dear UTJAY ..
all must find their own way..
some come early ..
go late ...
some come but just can't wait..
its life's twists and turns ....
we all don't come or go by turns ...
I see in the newspapers every day... some born in 1923 are still/yet on their way ....

others who came as late as 2002 ...have already flown away ....that s' life we all say.... so be happy ... he did with you play...
it must have been a long pathway ...
so let him now in his peace stay..
we all will follow the same lonesome pathway ..
so till then reconcile early...
as you may ...
we all have but to walk away...
some day ...one day

"sense is made in the malady of thought"

And yet it seems everything makes more sense when you allow the wind-workers to do their thing despite any losses that they might bring.

Thanks LOVERME, but it is not his loss I lament so much, he lived a long and full life, its that I could not be there to say goodbye that wets my eyes.

Thank you Maria, but stars are a funny thing. They are awarded not so much on the content, as on how well the page was used...But I'll take home with me just the same.

Thanks spirited, I guess it differs here and there. For me, I have always thought my clearest, in the excitement of things, like when the world is falling down around me there is nothing else to think about.
