Six Foot Hole and A Anchor

Six foot hole and a anchor
Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it to the side
Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it to the side

In a field I dig
Dig and dig
In a hole I stand

Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it to the side
Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it to the side

I will leave it here
Buried with emotion
Buried with love

Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it back in the hole
Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it back in the hole

There is no map
No interest to collect
You do not want this treasure

Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it back in the hole
Scoop a load of dirt
Throw it back in the hole

This is where I will leave my heart that has been an anchor
It will lay six foot under
Throw a scoop of dirt
Back in the hole

Dance Life to The End

So many have muttered
live life to the fullest
So much to see
So much to do
So many not free
No time to count wilted flowers
in a garden that will produce more
Every breath till the last
is more precious than of one’s desires
A shame of shallow material things
some wrap their being around
How long you live will be to short
regardless of the days in age
There is no guarantee of tomorrow
Memories will be left behind
for those that remain
Smiles in the shedding of frowns
I say, no tissues, no tears
dance with me till the end
Remember me for now
I say for those
You should have known me

The Zoo

We are looking in
They are looking out

Children laugh and awe
Adults point and converse
No one pays attention not even the keeper

Look at their demeanor
Look at their eyes
Regardless of the room
Trapped, bound and caged

If you ever have been
Shackled, locked up and bound
Restrained where the mind wonders of freedom
You know the gaze
I’ve seen it in men
Same look I see today

Rationalize it how you will
Debate it
Though the education, the attractions and the dollar
Will remain to find an endless gaze at the zoo

Canvas

Not at the top though in the world
Do not see the tone of the colors
Feel them
Touch with your fingertips
Discover within

Feel the harmony without sight
Know who with silent lips
Nurture thought as a tomato plant in a garden
Travel even as we lay

Canvas with even stroke
Although mystery in odds
You have drawn a pear
I have taken a bite

Words of the heart
Will not fade like a photo
Like the heart memories will be etched
The soul will know even if the mind does not

Not at the top though in the world
Do not see the shapes of the color
Feel them
Touch with your fingertips
Discover within

Feel the harmony without sight
Know with simplicity
No one is perfect though the idea of finding perfect
As we walk here in the woods
We will stand at this level of priceless unlike antiques

As brush to paint
We will be found in the world of a canvas that burst into one
Knowing out from inside

A Fools Wish

In what I seek
Within my heart
that tangles a weave to the soul
offering an abundance that is projected

In mind a woman of desire
calmness to be loved for who she is
What she offers and is willing to give
day in and day out

Honesty, integrity, patience, faithful, intelligent, caring
Adventurous, romantic, trustworthy, spontaneous
Substance, understanding, friendship, sharing, expressive
Unique, peaceful, spirited, passionate, modern, values
Honorable, strong, humorous, fighter, vocal and adorable

I am a fighter in a boat floating
on a river of flower petals in a desert storm
A past I do not dwell but cherish
Glances back with a smile of no regrets
Accept me for who I am
Changes come with everyday

Dreams of me and no one else
Takes my hand to step into the future
Stands next me
not behind nor in-front
Has dreams and goals and willing to strive
Someone that can make the most out of nothing
so the little things are important as the big

Dreams of being a queen
But is grounded to the reality of moments
Together moon lit nights on a beach
Times we press our hands together
Stare into each others eyes
This is what is priceless
Not afraid to express her desires

In what I seek a fools wish to unconditional love that may not exist
Just a fools wish

Welcome and thank you for visiting
