ON CLEAR DAY

ON A CLEAR DAY

I see my future clear
I won't be here
come next year.
I have no need
of a crystal ball
no reading palms
no tea leaves in a cup.
I am in decline
all the potions failed.
My time is up.
What a pity
life works that way.
But at least I'm here today.

pretty much the way I feel.
Simple, honest and true. No whining.
Likewise I could use a few more years, not sure what for.
It is nice to be, despite the pain, cos there is nothing after but others memories.
Nice work, Joe.

cheers,
Jess

Our journey is logged in the great book of whatever.
No matter what your beliefs are.
There is an end to all physical creatures, but I hope that the surprise of being able to continue in a form that pleases you will not be beyond your own think.
I know for a long time I go on about the Children, but remember this is my part of wherever and I am happy with my choice.
In a time not of your thinking we all will remember a time when we all passed as ships in the night.
Not touching but just in the beauty of knowing that there very near was another being, and there the think mingled but in a restricted bondage to Earth form.
Now you know that if you are released from those restrictions without the fear of the unknown then infinity will be your playground.
When you feel that touch of infinity and beauty of true feelings then you I know will visit me in my cave there just where the Children play, just ask Sadie for the way.
May your God be there to greet you and put your think at ease.
There are things we have no control over and never will, we seem to rush at the end to see who is right.
Go well young traveller and know we are here for a while longer,
Yours Ian
PS:- Did you get chance to listen to the tape it's not going to hurt now is it, just remember it is part of my world and you have your own, see you later Joe.

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I didn't expect it to happen so quickly. I wish,at least, I had more time.

We cannot choose the time and place of our departure and if they knew they couldn't tell you.
It is hard but there are so many beautiful things to come so don't worry on the transition, it will happen at its set time.
May your God hold you as he greets you, for as you think so it will be.
Take care young Joe and if we don't talk here much more always know you are thought so highly of here and later, Yours Ian, and the Children.

I don't know what to say. Be at peace always is my heartfelt wish for you. Though we have never met, I just know you are a great human being.

Warm regards and prayers for your well being,

Raj, you all are my family and you have seen me thru many bad times.

God be with you always. May you live a long , happy life and never suffer the indignities of a slow and painful end.

at midnite
when Cinderella is about to go

which way to go
as you are the sentinel
the pedestal

the greatest

I am mediocre, but you have the gift. You have come a long way, my friend,

author comment

if only there were more folks in this world like you

guys like me would have a long swim
in the arms of truthful universe
where every step one does traverse
is a bounden curse

you enliven the dying soul
as you not alone
but also help others reach ones goal

in your humility lies peace
and it provides succour as a piece
for kinds like me
who have yet to field
a poetic yield

times not far when your dreams may come true
and
if I have swum across so far
tis cause of folks
Jess, Ian Esker Stan and Judy
mostly because of you
as you have nursed
this child from poetic soil

I don't know what to say - except you are a warrior of tenacity and a darn good poet! And you're going to be missed! :) xxxxxx

Hugs

Mand xxxxxxx

I won't give up. I won't give in until......

Thank you, Mand

Love.
