See Things For What They Can Be

JOURNEY ON

I have traveled the outer of space

I have seen the thoughts of my mind

I have marveled that which has come

I have been saddened by what is missed

 

Time has stopped for moments it seems

Time has ticked the clock

Time waits for none, this truth

Time envelopes me to bondage

 

The waters rush to waves pounding

The waters cleanse to refreshing

The waters trickle to dripping motion

The waters still to lifelessness

 

Journey to travel for mind’s sake

Journey to want in need

Journey to accomplish for goals

Journey on, most of all, journey on

How Life Is

From time to time, my eyes search the skies

If I bend an ear, I can hear the cries

It is for me to wonder, as I am perplexed

How life is at times, as real as it gets

The violence and anger portrayed day to day

It is for revenge, it is for justice some say

I am truely beholden, this way that I live

It is but one life given, for me to give

Round and round, the cycle of life bestows

Like our earth, round the sun it goes

Event after one, another continues onward

You would think lessons learned, from outside inward

Time goes by round the world as it turns

The violence unending as hearts fire burns

Is it for justice? Is it peace?

I continue to wonder, will it ever, ever cease

A couple of weekends ago, I was helping my boss move boxes at his place so that he can begin enjoying his man cave. In doing so, he had a 18 speed bike that was taking up space he no longer had a need or want for it.

It had been sitting in a garage for years but was still in good condition. The tires were dry and I knew the tubes would have to be replaced as well. Yesterday I did the front tire and tube. This morning I stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things and got the other tire and tube.

After removing the old tire and tube, I saw that rust was on the inside of the rim.

So a little elbow grease and a scrubby pad was in order.

That didn’t take too long and before I knew it, it was all back together.

It rides much better than I thought it would and I rode further than planned. I really like my new (used) bike.

Now I have an after work stress burner!

Love’s piece cannot define that which it exhibits with love’s peace

Love is by the worth it gives as receiving to love

Smoldering hearts heated cores to burn for love

Sensations to ends of nerves endings heightened

Yet be it exuberance, to still the senses to pause, reflections

The Gray Of The Day

The gray of the day is the start
Yet the sun shines above all unseen
The gray blocks the needed D
Spirits of some are dampened
Yet the sun does shine above unseen
The rays penetrate not the gray
The laughter of hearts are still
In want of the shine and warmth
Yet the sun does shine nonetheless
Unseen due to the gray of the sky

Horizons

The mysteries that lie beyond horizons wake
Delivers untold intities to thresholds unspecified
Questions arise in want of knowledge
Anwers of disparity for some
While for others, greater joy
So entails the cycle of horizons
Be as it may, be as it is

Thanks Mom

I called my mom early this morning to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. She said I was the first to reach her and that it was ok because she had to get up anyway. The times we talk as usual lead to other topics. I’m going to Ohio in July and it will be good to see her.

Like a lot of moms, my mom made sure I knew how to take care of myself, like cooking, cleaning, laundry. Of course as a teenager you’re not into learning those necessities of life. I don’t do too bad these days….thanks to mom.

It is always a treat catching up with my mom. We laugh and talk and she sounds younger than ever. I still get good advice and she is good at listening.

My mom has always been a big part of my life and I will never take that for granted. I often look back on her guidance and know today that raising children is no easy task. Love, gratitude, thankful, appreciation, are just grains of sand in describing how much I appreciate my mom….love you mom!
