From Where I Sat

From
where I
sat,
everything
looked
as
if the
moon
wrapped
himself
around
you,
tightly bound
and
with
hush on
the brain.

From where
I sat,
I could
dance around
freedom
and
sing until
the
Blues gave
way,
and you
would
smile if
only
to see
me
do the
same.

I may
be
only a
poet,
but
from where
I sat,
it
would
only
take a
stern
eye
to
make
Zeus finally
give
meaning
to
the beauty
before
my
eyes.

By Any Other Name

We’d
be prettier
if
the
stars
simply
wondered
off
their
straight
and desperate
course;
in
keeping with
time,
and
her loose
hips
and cornbread
rolls.

You’d be
sexier
if the
Gods simply
walked
off
their jobs,
leaving
dust
to gather
into
nice
fluid
patterns along
the
visible
crevices.

I’m
not
crazy
but
I think
you’d be
better
for
me if
you’d simply
exist
beyond
what
I see,
and
since we’re
just
that
close
to perfection,
let’s
see
if we can
stay
inside
the
lines
this time.

Ain’t It So?

Ain’t
it cool
that
we
get to
feel
the
way our
legs cross
into
the
Nile,
and how
her
waters leave
us
in
such bliss.

Ain’t
it pretty
how
the sun
simply
decides to
show
up
right when
you
open
your morning
eyes
to the world.

See,
I’m
just
impressed
that it’s
something
that
we
get to
dance
on top
of the
moon
when no
one’s
looking.

In An Effort To Appreciate

Where would we be if we couldn’t show a bit of appreciation for a thing or two?

I mean, every once in a while we get lucky enough to find someone, or some thing that gives us the pleasurable freedom to appreciate it. We’re giving the chance to think and love something other than ourselves and for once in many of our lives, we’re reminded of how karma truly works.

So, what’s the point you say?

The point is simple:  show gratitude for the things that you already have and chase away the noise that keeps you in place with the things that you don’t have.

We’re all blessed to have the things in our lives that remind us to be better humans. However, and without getting into the movement of discovering the Secret on you, I want to make the point that we may not all recognize those feelings as signs that assist in our not only our ability to make informed decisions. Without fail, often we lack the fortitude and patience to really feel those amazing true statements of who we really are.  So, whenever I’m standing in the line at the grocery store and I glance around at all the movement within those lanes of food and people, I’m reminded that the universe didn’t just want me there…it needed me there.
