SEAS

SMELL THE SALTS UPON THE SEAS
VENTURE INTO WATERS OF PAST BRIGADES
SMELL NOT THE SEAS OF PAST HISTORY
BUT ONLY OF THE SALTY REMAINS
LEAVING BEHIND FRESH DROPS FROM THE RAINS
BACK INTO SEAS GALENTLY LEADING
THE RUNNING OF WATERS
BACK  UNTO THE GATES
OF THY KINGDOM UNTO ETERNITY

July 1, 1999

LIVE TO LOVE
FEEL THE DYNAMIC MOVEMENTS OF YOUR HEART
TO AND FROM THE WARMEST OF TOUCH
WITHOUT THE WAVES SPLASHING IN
CONFUSING COMFORT FOR MYSTERIOUS LUST
LUST OF WEAK BUT FORGOTTON SIN
FORGETTING TRUE RESPONSIBLITY
BRINGING  US ON TO A NEW EARTHY DEASEASE
OUR PATTERN OF LIFE LEFT HERE ON EARTH
FROM EARTH TO THE NEW BEGINNING OF WORLD PEACE

 

THE PASSING THROUGH TIME

I sit within the quiet sounds
Of my own mind
Meditating into a picture
Where this time within no longer belongs

Passing of an ivory hand made spread
Laying upon an old post bed
A friend within a dog bleating
Into the spread where he lay his head

With the visions of gray skies
Through the panes of a window nearby
Branches of trees peeking around the corner
As though they were trying to hide

No true color in this time involved
Upon a wall a picture of writing
Resembling Our justice for all

As time having its way of passing through
Now to remember
Only through the days Of de ja vu

Hush bye to the days
Now forever gone dry
No longer are the tears
Of those who once got us here

No longer left
Is the remittance of fears
From all the  passing souls
Having once passed through here

No longer passing on
The remembrance of goals
Just the changing
Of the goals of the souls

Forgetting but once remembered
All the messages of what was once  foretold
In the coming of the days

Of the coming of the Lord

NO TURNING BACK

Release this kiss
As you can see
There is no more
 Of you and me

I'll say something sweet
And you can dwell
Within your own heat
For the feelings of yourself
In only which you believe

So we will see
What you will be
In the very end
When we meet again
In eternity


Patti Smith

INNOCENCE OF CHILD

Love sweet child
Eyes brown
Wide with the innocence of desire

Sweet child's face
No signs of crime erased
Only the pure white trace
Of your innocence of race

Sweet children of our world
Born innocent and pure
So dear until they begin to hear
And experience with fears
The real sorrow of true tears

To feel is what becomes real
From a child's mind
To what now life finds
Entering our adulthood

As our child is our child
All our life
Until God takes back
His living sacrifice

Patti Smith

CONTINUING FOR ALL TIME

Time standing still
Now at your own will
The face of the clock
Needn't hands to drop

Skins of silk
Wilting with the age process
Once upon our minds
Now laying our beauty to rest
For all now times

Forever are the skies
Forever are the grounds
Forever will our earth
Continue to remain round

Forever will our souls
Continue to live on
Forever will our time
Continue in our minds

Patti Smith

THE LASTING ROSE

The colored rose is red
Until it is dead

While the bud was the only thing
 Which didn't make me bleed

From this miracle of bloom
In the mid December's gloom

Was finding all the pleasures
Within as I consumed

The last of all it's energies
Before it became doomed

Patti Smith


COMMANDMENT OF TONGUE

Holy holy is thy name
Why do you take God's name in vain
So quick to blame
Every time you complain

As you shall see
This was written
In thy book
As thou shall not be

Unto thee
For all those who shall see
Are the ones
Who now believe in God the Almighty

See and read as you believe
What our earth is meant to be
So at your end you can be
Now delivered unto thee

WOW!!!!!!!!

HOW MANY TIMES
Do we walk
With open eyes and never talk
Pretending we have no sight
For the people in that fight

HOW MANY TIMES
Do we listen
But we don't hear
To the sounds of our children's fears

HOW MANY TIMES
Do we know
And we say no
To the truth of what we really know
By not getting involved to help solve
You'd much rather stay uninvolved

HOW MANY TIMES
Won't you look in the eyes of a child on the street
To see if they've had anything to eat
Or how they'll get their heat
And to see no shoes on their feet


HOW MANY TIMES
Will you have to hear
Before you let it get to your ear
Is it fear
That makes you not come near

HOW MANY MORE TIMES
Will you allow this crime
Would you be willing to do the time
Wouldn't you rather walk
And maybe talk
And see what you can be
For all of these

MIRACLE OF BIRTH

Pretty baby blue
Do you know who loves you
I do
I tell you true

You're like a precious jewel
Precious and few
You're my little tummy
Dream come true

I can't wait till you're complete
For now all you do is sleep
With the warmth of my body heat

Sometimes as I sleep I feel
The kick from your little feet
I see the sheets move
While you're inside of me

And I still can't believe
You know when it's your time
To be free and release
Yourself from within me

As I pray for your good health
And how I felt as I
Watched you come out

I wanted to shout for the joy
I felt at the beautiful sight
Of my new baby boy

BACK

TEARS OF AN ANGEL

These clouds of wisdom
Sit above me
While up in a mountain high

I'm watching my angel cry
with these tears
Rolling down from upon her eyes

With dark shadows of sorrow
Rolling through the skies
I needn't ask why

I know I didn't really try
Now it's my turn
As I now sit I cry




PEACE OF THE PROMISED LAND

Oh sweet face of a lamb
Are you in our promised land
With mountains of green
And waterfalls with the warmth of steam

Oh promised land
Of beauty and rest
Resting with only
The souls of the best

Oh sweet place of peace
My soul's now released
No longer are the temptations of disease
Only the longing of being upon my knees

Oh sweet sweet Jesus
Lord of God
Your place of peace
Has delivered me home

BACK

REALITY  WITHIN A DREAM

Angel whispers within my dreams
Visions of surrender
To the roads that followed me
Left only with this peace

Upon a cluster of flowering bloom
In a dream world
Where everything now seems misunderstood
Awakening from within my dreams

My eyes travel to where
I'm suddenly aware
Of the clock that ticks
With wasted time continuing to slip

Slipping deeper and deeper
Into each day into the days
Slipping into my yesterdays
For this life lived within a haze

Now to a new beginning of my childish ways
As I know my life now
Is just the starting to begin
For all of the beauty I just learned within

AWAITING JUDGMENT

Sins of the world
Sit in fear
As they did hear
Judgment day is coming near

What will they hear
As they are crying tears
For the souls they hurt

Power of the Funnel

These clouds above are blue and gray
Swiftly moving along their way
I must admit they'll have their way.

As the darkness sets in, the thunder begins
The people take shelter to a place within.

Some find peace and some find fear
And others' eyes fill with tears
As funnels touch down
And wipe it clean
Very little is left in between

As the clouds clear their way
It's now another day
A new beginning for many strays
There is no longer yesterdays

So who's to know and who's to say
If you weren't even there that day
So no one can see the loss for me
Or any of my memories

GUIDED BY AN ANGEL

Pressed so lightly yet held so tight
In the arms of an angel
Guiding me through the star's light
Showing the beauty of the darkest of night

Secure am I sure I didn't die
With the whispers of reasons why
Flying high with these wings
Of my angel by my side

To guide and help me see
All the beauty of how life should be
By not pretending our life expectancy
Is just a mishappening

But a miracle of birth with self worth
To make things right
From the beginning to the end
Of our own eternal flight

Whispering Words

Do angels sing
Do baby angels swing
Do they ever do any fun things
When they spread their wings

Or do they just stay up high
Looking down from the sky

Hoping to hear you call
Before you fall
To help you stand tall

Is there one to my left
Or one to my right
Or are they always just in the light

Whispering words
In hopes that we heard

To give with your heart
So we do our part
And give of yourself
And a little of your wealth
It goes a long way
Helping someone else along their way

So what is this all about

All of the angels all about
Coming near
So have no fear
They're here to shelter you
In all you do

To bring forth
What you heard
From all the words

So spread these words
To all you know
Who believe in thy soul
Why this story's really told

So we know
 The angels are here
Without any fear
Just the sounds of the whisper in your ear

(I have chosen to post this poem by Patti AS IS!! she was inspired and began writing withput even knowing why!! YOU KNOW WHY! Don't You! GREAT PATTI!!!!?),

MANKIND
RECEIVED ALL THE RICHES OF THE WORLD
THE SHELTER OF THE WORLD
BRINGING ABOUT THEIR COMFORTS AND THEIR WEALTH
WHY DOES MAN TAKE SO FOR GRANTED
WITH THY SELVES OF LOYALTY AND TRUST
IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF GOD THY FATHER
HEAVEN AND  EARTH
WHO THY NOT OBEY ME
IN THE NAME OF THY GOD
OH HOLY SPIRIT PROTECT THY  SOUL
AND LEAD THY WAY AS I HAVE  SINNED
FORGIVE ME AND ALL THY FELLOW MAN
AS THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO
oh holy holy is thy name
Jesus ...

bring down thy forth
his holy son to wash away the sins of the world
begin the cleansing of the world as it is stated in the
book  of revelation
cast away the sins of the world and bring down the souls un to
David who wrote in the scripture of
DAVID UNTO  HIM  THE BEGINNING  OF THE END OF PAIN AND SUFFERING UNTO
OH LORD ...

(as is... which leads us to believe MORE will be forthcoming!!!.. Praise GOD!)
