‘Thee’ and I of You and ‘Me’

These journeys –
from Heaven to Hell & from Hell back
to a Heavenly state of Mind
… seeing prophecies fulfilled, some scriptures of doom …
… some stories, as old as the hills …

Can you find it in your heart to impart,
tell me, “what have you seen ‘reading’
that may reveal our parts”
in dialog & the actions that follow
within this plot-development,
that we may re-invent our futures, narrowly escaping,
from points-of-view as if more spontaneous,
more conducive to assurances of successful happiness
in returning to the land of our birth
… to first bliss …

thus improving our character evaluation
in experience yet unfolding

The Trouble with Innocence

On a grander scale of the usual fare
brutality comes with a curse,
the innocent being the weakest link
standing between godliness & adulthood
pitting Man against Nature,
angrily seeking a return on our investment,
reborn to creativity, plodding along on-course
in harmonious accord with one’s wit & will
and the Universal flux of emotion

Sunny Side

Into the sun’s sultry glare of suspense
I surrendered my care
movable obstacles as tossaways
and a long history of weathered heritage
worn, and tucked safely, ‘neath our thorny crowns

With binding silken threads of prior misgivings
we stitch the fabric of futures
into highly decorated fine summer apparel
thinking – ready now – here it comes
– and you’ll soon remember –
this call for action rests in Heavenly Quest

“They’re stealing our Credo to discredit the Power of Love”
[ebeane – March 17, 2019]

Just as they poisoned His name – Dave Mason – in my many years struggling for my sanity…

Playin’ fer Cash

Slow down on approach to tomorrow’s troubles
eyeing intensely rear view mirrors
leaving towns undefended newly explored
life there unadorned,
mission bell ringing-up a group parlay
the best-of-the-beasts plans understood in mood
pack your bags, got this-thing on the move
none too soon, baying
“move over little dog – there’s a big dog movin’ in”

[Quote: George Thorogood & The Destroyers]

Inspired, Or Challenged – Trusted, Or Busted

Who all among us
stand up, and declare to be one, multi-faceted self,
with or without worth
men made of conscience, integrity, and clout

Willing, and of capable mind
of a heart-smart kind,
safety evidenced as yet uninspected

In faith & trust, abide with the Divine Triad,
a lull among the co-conspirators,
and the jungle air thick with silence, on alert

Calls cease with disbelief
coming in strong, of unnatural cause,
emboldened themes, reality or dream
Christ, Almighty, Lord, Ah-men
