Colossus of Clout

From a dream I had. 
I went to that place and let the rain fall on top of me.
It was so real.

For the music of the Earth.
 For our life so freely giv'n. 
For the wonder of each hour, 
Hill and vale and tree and flow'r, 
Of the day and of the night; 
Sun and moon, and stars of light.
-Interpretation from For The Beauty of The Earth 
by Follieot S. Peirpont

Antique Photograph Found in an Attic 
Van Dyke Brown 

Must have been an important Cherokee woman...

Two Leafs,
Way out on a distant branch.
Just chillin' together.
Ain't no thang.

A dedication post to two of the most influential people of my lifetime thus far.
To the two most honest, genuine, and remarkable folks I've had the privilege of spending time
in their midst. 
Their example and impact will forever play an instrumental part in my life. 
My love goes out to my sweet angelic Grandmother,
and to my heroic, stalwart Grandpa. 

I shall forever be indebted to your selflessness and all your silent prayers.
I have very big shoes to fill.

the magical pomegrante

How perfect it was to see you.
Your countenance just beamed with joy.
I loved being around your warming soul.
Your uplifting spirit brightened my day.
It felt as though you really cared.

I do hope I see you again.

Happy Halloween Everyone

That moment of certain despair.
And overwhelming hoplesness…
Not that moment.

But the moment that comes after that. 
The moment when all those dark, meaningless feelings leave.
The moment when you realize everything is going to be wonderful.
When your mind stops thinking about the future and starts thinking about the Now.

Begins with a single step."

Run Little Fella Run! 
Go, CB Go! 

When the sun is low,
and moon starts to rise,
CB captures the surprise.

Sleeping Beauty

When the revenant came down
We couldn't imagine what it was.

In the spirit of three stars,
The alien thing that took its form
Then to Lebanon, oh God,
The flashing at night, the sirens grow and grow...

Barn Jumpin'
A bro so sick,
be clearin' that fish.
No guppies in this bowl,
Drop in from dat lip,
20 foot gap,
Nose bonin',
dark slidin,
Christ-airin' that lip.
Onto the next trick.
Double back flip?
360 gainer?
I don't think I've ever been saner.
They be tellin' me to control that behavior,
Step in line and accept that imminent danger,
But I'm not about to listen to some nobody stranger.
I won't bow down,
to some shiny crown.
I won't be tried for livin' a free life. 
We're born free,
to be free. 

No guppies in here, 
We be needin' our air.
Watch me break free from this mind control,
And not be led and thrown into a human disposal.

Wake up people.
It's time to think for yourselves. 

The beauty of Some things...

Kiss me out of the bearded barley,
Nightly , beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You’ll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance
Silvermoon’s sparkling,
So, kiss Me.
-Sixpence None the Richer, Kiss Me 

Lookin’ down,
Checkin it.
Who knew I was reppin’ it.
The Air-Walk,
Homies know they best be respectin’ it.
The rubber so slick,
Bulgin’ out my blue denim pocket,
Criss-cross the meanin of my kicks and my jumbo waist-rocket,
If you’re still readin,
I’d advise ya to be leavin’,
The internet is free,
But it definitely ain’t for everybody
Check it!

Remember that one Sunday we drove into the mountains, 
away from the city?
We found a magical waterfall.
The colors of Fall were everywhere.
We were gone most of the day.
We watched the Sun set. 
It was beautiful. 

Then we drove back into city. 
It wasn't like mountains there.

Tis’ a gift to see it.”

Good ol James, 
Was a good ol' soul.
And a good ol' soul was he.
