 Charles said

That Rain Cares

I for One

Chilled out in Aire

To One Stuck in

Royalty – as Pawn

To Bishop – sequence of

Starrs – D-lite of Men

Struggle w/your Heart

And it shall keep your

Peace

In Model of The Infinite

The Leaf

That Dies

 In His Heart of

Hearts He Rested as Leaf

Springing Here, There

Alone and Happy Summer-

Time Leaf of Love

To the eternal mystery tree~

sunshine drank Him in

I could not gaze toward what was

pure under the leaf

I and the Leaf Brothers forever

Smoke and Sunshine and Flowers

These Three!

  Life In

The Circle


 
Touching Angel wings

Has not been easy

 
Touching Art as love

Has Been Sacred (!)

 
My own feelings Arched

Over in to speaking Magic

Have Left me Superficial

 
Have Left Me Like The

Sacred Drums

 
Cold and un-caring

Whispering my own faults

To Grandmother

 
My own Response

Arched in to Being

Have settled into My

Stomach
 

 And now reside As Love

Calls

The Greatest Mystery in

A Frozen Cycle
 

 The Greatest Day of A

Single Year

 
Taught and Untaught

Frozen and Thawed

Beginning and Ending

 
Chosen to Die

As Bird

Of a Yellow Streak in perpetual

Flight – Not caring Any More (!)

The Gold That I Wear

Around My Neck
 

 They say That Only

Cafes can count The Words

you say

 
That only The Birds can

fly backwards

In the coffee cups


I watch out the window

And see the world spin

Rhythms


 So many beautiful

Thoughts

Engaged To me and

my coffee

 
Say to Me Dear God

How many you’ve

chosen

To say the Magic

Words

 
Of a coffee

 cup, a Paper

and a walking Life

 
In Harmony

with All Life,

Total

Beginning


TommyTears Video

 

Nectar of Her Nectar

Time of My Time


Stand motionless for

Me

Breathe me in

Into your self

 
Roaring wave That you

Are


The Weather of A Thousand

Life Times

 
Waltzing into A

Drowning Diamond River

 

8-1-007  Wednesday 

She Looks At Me

 
She looks at me

Wild hair-flowers in her eyes


Spark of the Golden Sunshine

Mist of the Golden Sun

 
I began to talk

We Stop together

To Listen to the Art

in our Words

 
The touch She Studies

into my body

Has started to Rain

Rain from then Pure-land-Flower

 
Another Rain from Another Day

Lifting us as two

drawn together

By Our Numb Art

 
By The Only Bridge

we’ve Ever crossed

 
Two Lights on A

Beacon from a downtown

Planted in Your eyes

Planted to Spread Love

In my union with a page

That spoke You Name Daily

 
As match-stick men

We saw your Divinity

 
Eyes on a Page Aglow

 
Eyes that Have only yesterday

 
Eyes That rapidly dance away

 
Sun has come now

Lay down your land

Speak my Name

Of Silent-Thunder-Eyes


Till We Both Cannot Breathe

Even Now

Even Death Stares

 
Land-star-island

of many

 
Beginning to Revolve

All our Beginnings

 
Of Sun

When I Sleep

She Sleeps
 

 She Started as A

Whisper to my Heart

 
She Slept Like A Lady

Many Times ~

Never Parting ~

 
I understood her

Rhythm

Her Own Map of Mind

 
Her Own to be Had on

An evening of it’s

Own


She stands Silent Now

Her Eternity inches

from my Heart

 

Scanned from Both Sides

She Looks At Me

 
I Respond with

A Kiss

Of Loves’s first

Taste

 
Of The echoing Heart

Of Youth in ecstacy

 
Of What a Will Knows

to Have Grown There

To Be the Eternity

 
To Be an aching

Dream of Pictures

Only she can Fill

 
Touch Me Deeply Now

Be Not Afraid

 
I am You and You

are Me

 

8-22nd ~ 20007

(Shar’s) a Wednesday Evening

The Sun of

The North Man

 
Heavy in The Sky

All eyes Watch The Sun Walk

 
Walking into it’s Path

of Mystery

Is a comet

Breaking it’s stride

with Life

 
The Silent Orb of

Yesterday ~ Tilted Like

A Stop Sign

 
Matching breath with

my tree

Whose roots become

as man

 
And in the Heart

of the calming Woman

The vines grow

Deep into Night

 
A tender Wall of

Riddles touching the

eyelids of the cave man’s

calm being

 
A Full Circle of Delight

developing in His Beard of

playing

 
Playing into the Night

with what’s Left of The

Golden Sun of Ram’s Horns

 
The Delicious mystery upon

Her lips

That only Now creates

Murder on A Page

 
That Only Now will

Sing One Song

 
To Stop catching

Her Breath With Page

~ United ~

 

8-29-07        8:45 pm

 What She Wore

Last Night
 

 Deep in Her own

Darkness ~ I see Her Light

 
Chasing me Down To The

River of Her Life

 
Chasing some Wild Man

That didn’t know Her Name

But…continued to

Love Her

 

Continued Like Water Fall

Touching Her Dreams

Lighting Them on Fire

 

Reaching out, as I do

for Her

She learns My Name

 

Learns that Real Men

Just Don’t Speak

They Learn

 

And Learn to Love

Her in Her own Strength

 

To Abide There, in A

Tree Of Silent Brush

A Brushing off of the

Cold Between Us

 

Off All Words in All

Languages

As She Spells love

Between Us, For The Thousandeth

Time

Chasing me Like Dymond

River

 

A Total Waltz of Her

Imagination For us

 

Beginning to grow into

A Bird

Settling down between us

into A Spell

 

9-19-written – 8pm – 2007  it’s about love

 She Was The

Moon Light

 
Tucked between Her

tears Was My Soule

 

Of Silver-Gold and

struggling things

 

Of All The Mystery a

Woman was Made

 

To Wet my Eyes in the

Middle of Ecstacy

Cast about by my

Own Love of Seas

 

A threaded Touch of Cold

Motion

 

Lake of My Lake

Her back yard

Of black woods

 

She the Stolen Kiss

of Day

Comes to my lonely

World with the First

Touch of Winter

 
Lags Claim to

struggling words in her

Arms

And Adds Chapters

To Books yet Written

 
I swim next to Her

Mind

And Settle there

Nesting Like a Black

Bird

 

That Stings Like the

Valley of Her Heart

 

into the Day, Sun Arrives

Marking old paths

To Her Love

 

She says:

I am the Moon

You are the Sun

We will kiss

until all stars

close in a mighty

Hiss

 Never.

10-10-007 JB.  9:30 pm wednesday It’s about living

Abundantly!

 
The Life That goes

And Goes

 
i watch as they

carry me down into the

street

 

calling my name of Gold

 

calling upon the Creator to

send His Blessing

 

I am full of Love in

this moment

 

for those who put me here

 

who believed

 

who did not care that

i was wrong

 

that loved me anyway

 

i pick up the pieces

of my broken life

 

and put them together

for myself

 

and Tell God He was

right

 

That only He could

Care for me

 

Could love the man

they called Impossible

Amazing Grace

  Amazing Grace

                                                         How sweet The Sound

                                                          That Saved

                                                          A wretch

                                                          Like me…

                                                          I once

                                                          was lost

                                                           But now… 

                                                          Am found

                                                          was Blind

                                                          But now

                                                          I see…

 
                                                        I Saw The Sun

                                                        Set Down

                                                         It’s Light…

                                                         and Save

                                                         What it could Not…

                                                         I Think

                                                         that I

                                                         Have Found

                                                         What I

                                                         Have Seeked

                                                         Beneath

                                                        His Soule
 

                                                          And when We’ve Been

                                                          Watching Skies open up

                                                          I’ll send

                                                           The Love

                                                           That was…

                                                           His Heart

                                                           All over…

                                                           You and Me

                                                           To Touch

                                                           The Soul

                                                           We couldn’t

                                                           Save

 

                                                          Amazing Grace

                                                          How Sweet the Sound

 

                                                         A wretch

                                                          Like Me…

                                                          I once

                                                          was Lost

                                                          But Now

                                                          Am Found 

                                                          Was Blind

                                                          But Now

                                                          I See…

                                                      Thank You!

 

Written  11-14th-W-2007 7AM

I’ll write this poem then the 2nd one will be impromptu and related to the one first one that’s written!

 

Thanksgiving Marbles

 In the towne that walked

on Stilts that Thanksgiving

 

I walk The turkey Home to

the brood of talking

 

Talking turkeys lined up

like Christmas

 
So far that their heads

bobble and jump at their

own sound in my ears

 

Trumpets of an age when

songs were sung

and gifts passed out

 

Passed out so that Turkeys

could walk freely.  Filling their

pockets w/gold (!)

 

Some day Santa will ride

a wild Turkey home to the

sanitarium

 

And sign his name on

the walls. And watch as Rudolph

brings his tray of Food

 

I’m alone now in my mind

a sign and a signal of

Christmas and Thanksgiving love

and care on an island marked

for not for profit time
 

 thanks              tommy tears

 

now i’ll fashion a 2nd Thanksgiving poeme impromptu associated w/the first one ~ i hope!
