Strength [Runic Symbol:Uruz]

S t r e n g t h is a phenomenal energy that converts daunting to undaunting, when there is a will to do it

Two Midget Porn Stars

two midget porn stars playing scrabble
one named Tony the other Frank
Tony was full of bologna and Frank just drank
the got a missing letter then had to use the bathroom
Tony was then knocked unconscious
in a dream he sailed to the ancient isle of Crete
there was pom poms and flip flops
Frank was drinking as usual
the dream continues
yet through a narrow doorway unleased a dragon that was under the flats
the dragon grew bigger and smoldered Tony all over with his fumes
Frank just sat in the corner and drank

World Peace

It is cold
very cold
freezing temperatures
a mild drizzle

yet unmindful she stands silently
like a statue under the isolated tree

all about her come and see
why such depth of silence
they wonder who is she
so very sweet and lovely
is fine
a veritable Divine

her eyes don’t blink
statue stark into the daylight distant
rare vision
no one knows where she is looking

yet her mission is just to draw
a large searching crowd
who will come and see
where she is looking

My Ivy

I lay face up, not a care in the world
My thoughts are soothing, polished and pearled
Isn’t nature amazing? Isn’t it sweet?
Can you hear the robins, the birds singing ‘tweet tweet?’

But as I lay, immersed in grass
A thought occurs, wicked as broken glass
I couldn’t shape it, describe it if I tried
Except that somewhere, somehow… someone lied?

No Right Tine

There is nothing like "the right time"
Stop sitting and waiting for it
Of course everything is going to be fine
But it won't be until you start working towards it

I have seen many a talent wasted
Many treasures untapped
Many people frustrated
Many visions warped

It's not because they don't have dreams
It's not because life is unfair
Its not because their hope does not beam
Neither is it because things are unclear

Elevator

1950

Go forward it is yours

Hold your Spirit to the light.
If they are the same,
You can do no more.
Love yourself always.

There is an emptiness
It clings to me
In the distance
I see a light

I shall walk toward the light
The only shadow
Will be behind me
I rejoice, and start to run.

The light recedes at my speed
I shall now journey on
Always reaching out
Away from the shadows

This is reality of being
There in another now
I will catch the light
It will be ours again.

W E A L T H: Fehu [Runic Symbols]

When w e a l t h is ethics, it stands for itself when everything else is lost.

I-You-We-Us

when I becomes We,
there's a lot to gain for Us

the way I see You and You see Me
is crucial for Us

if You and I, can give n take a Wee bit
life is more harmonioUs
