untitled #2

So it is P.A.D. (poem-a-day) time again, and until this becomes my job, my job is my job, so I will post as much as I can. Let’s start with this entry, and we will proceed from there. Hope you enjoy.

 

 

I am still here,

For now!

For a moment,

A twinkle in the eye,

Of the Universe.

An atom, among

Uncountable atoms.

There is more

Than this shell,

This slow-moving

organic miracle.

There must be breath

and consciousness,

There must be more.

There must be light

and nirvana,

A place beyond,

This place,

A dimension

Of grace and awareness.

There must be a place

For my head..

In the universal clouds.

Thought upon thought,

Drawing us closer.

A plane

Where we are we,

And not what we see.

The Holiday Season is Here

I know the holiday season is here, not because of christmas sale commercials, or the ridiculously early arrival of decorations, I know the holidays are coming because Sierra Nevada’s Celebration ale is on store shelves.

This wonderful beer by the “Sierra Nevada” brewing company, is perhaps my favorite beer. It is unfortunately only available during the holiday season, so it’s a long wait, but when I see it in the store my holidays begin. It is a hoppy beer, that to me, tastes like the smells of the holidays. I swear it tastes like the combination of holiday smells like your christmas tree or poinsettia plants. It is rich and hearty, and that taste is like christmas in a bottle. You get a smooth drink with a delightful after-taste, hearty and robust, with excellent flavors. This is just a humble man’s beer review, but I enjoyed writing it, so maybe I’ll review other beers, we’ll see. I hope your signs and symbols of a happy holiday season are here for you as well, and if you try this beer I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

It’s Been A Long Time

You make me dance

and jump for your love.

I’ve always played the fool

and it was fun.

I am your fool now,

and The work is hard.

You switch from

emotion to emotion

in a breath!

I cannot sustain

in the whirlwind.

How can I do

what you need,

when you don’t Know

what you want.

In the vast sea of your

insecurity ,

I am drowning!

Where went the joy?

Did you ever have it?

Do I hope

for something,

that will never flower?

Happiness..?

It’s been a long time.

 

Milestone

I reached One Hundred followers yesterday, and I wanted to just thank all who read and follow this blog. I will try to continually upgrade my work and put reading worthy content on here. Thank you again and here’s to the next One Hundred.

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who landed in Normandy Seventy years ago and to thank all those like my grandfather who fought against the evil that was the Nazis in WWII. This world is still not perfect, but imagine how awful it would be if not for all those who took up arms against an evil dictator. Thank you!

Day Off

I had a day off today. It’s always nice to have one in the middle of the week. It’s quiet and empty in the house and it allows me time to catch up on my writing. Life’s been trying to kick my ass lately, so it’s a welcome little reprieve from the never-ending routine. I worked on my book (progress had ground almost to a halt lately). Typed up the short story I wrote for and about my daughter. I also got a poem in a notebook today. I did a lot of work on my day off, but you know what they say, if you love it, it isn’t work! I wish I had more of these days, hopefully soon I will. Until then bills most be paid somehow, so back to it tomorrow, but then comes the weekend!

An Ever Changing Writer I AM

I am a rain drop that has merged back within the ocean and in doing that I share the oceans powerful qualities.
