Edge of the Water

On the edge of the water
Worrying more than ought to
river reflects back up at me
the water is cool and calm
a peaceful stream
enters my mind
takes over the steering for me
the river floats around a bend
I'm on the mend
with a tree overlooking the river's curve
two birds make a squawk
skim the river's surface together
river boat bells play to set the mood

Topology Text

glossy covers
inlaid slides
affording honor
and respect
to the internal
structure of my mind

a private gymnasium
for my brain
a private labyrinth
for one slightly warped
but not necessarily insane

how I love the bold print
announcing a new theorem
with formality and deference
giving me concrete evidence
of a fleeting and sometimes
tortured formation of my brain

Write me a lyric

Write me a poem
Write me a lyric
Write me a song
that my soul might sing

Speak to me of wonder
Speak to me of joy
Speak to me of friendship
That would be a special thing

Take me to the high places
The high places of your soul
teach me of the spirit
The dreams that keep you whole

And then if you turn your back
I will understand
We are all fleeting spirits
in an awesome divine plan

Emotions Walk

Sorrow took the bus
to town and met
Happy at the square
but Happy was too busy
so Sorrow went on
vacation with Solitude
who though a bit crazy
was quite a listener, dude
Sorrow decided to change
his name and so became
Relieved, Relieved ran
a marathon with Happy
hare, and Sorrow the
tortoise like snail, Relieved
was not in the perpetual
competition between the
Tortoise and the Hare
and reflected the scenery
better to the spectators there
