Feeling Good.

Small smiles, but they are from someplace deep and soft
And safe.
Inside. Inside the balance of things.
When you feel something is weakening, worsening,
Take a second and look.
You will notice other scars healing.  
Other fears turning to hope.
Past pains and worries now giving you some peace.
Faith in those you love.
Smooth moments.
I wonder how far the changes go.
How near the chances are.
When the next magic will be felt.
I can see the stars between the dark parts.
The smiles, with touch and thought.

Let it all in.

“Does Not Suffer Fools Gladly”

I have swallowed my words, muted my thoughts, for so long.
And for what? It hasn’t gotten any better. The opposite.
The details, as I was about to purge, are actually so silly.
So, again, 
I feel lessened for having been involved in such stupidity.
It comes down to this; I will now only allow Adult interactions.
I will now dismiss the Childish Shit. 
The blatant lying and manipulation.  
Oh, there are productive effects when actions are taken 
In very limited areas.
But overall, as an adult, part of society, supposed member 
Of this human race, there is an overall failing.
Hold on to your gripes. Stow away all your anger.
I don’t care.
I now only care to protect the innocent from the 
And, believe you me, I will.
Stop being foolish. Communicate. Don’t pull stupid Shit.
Do these simple things and we Can get along. We Should get along.
Really, we Have to….

Sharpen their knives, huh?

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."
Like I told my last wife, I says, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it's all in the reflexes."
Well, ya see, I'm not saying that I've been everywhere and I've done everything, but I do know it's a pretty amazing planet we live on here, and a man would have to be some kind of FOOL to think we're alone in THIS universe.
This is gonna take crackerjack timing, Wang.
Okay. You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn... call the president.
May the wings of liberty never lose a feather.

Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

We really shook the pillars of heaven, didn't we, Wang?

Life Hot

Foolish tricks one plays on one’s self
So not to have to face up to that most 
Dreaded task…
Real communications.
Not just complaining 
Or trying, so hard, to be tricky
I mean Comm-U-Ni-Ca-Tion
Then people would Know
Issues could be resolved
But no.
As I fear, not all have hungry minds.
Some feel find to feed at the trough.
And Assume.

Happy X-OR-Y-giver Day

I almost forgot. Not the day, but a post. This one is different. Oh Baby!
(And I blatantly stole the pic from another blog)
So for all the Dads whose laughs and growls showed us how to live,
The bar is set high.

Making it Hard to shift Gears

Can’t miss that summer beat.
You can see it in the bounce
Pretty leggy goddesses
Sliding down Skin Garden Road
All smooth and tanned
Tie me Up
Lay me Down
Seeing these bits of
Summer Heat
Brings on the Lust!

Dragons With New Scales.

If I had to put things into one word a week ago
It would have been Thankful.
Now, it would be Poop.
Someone I have to interact with has returned to
The Crazy-Side.
Tainting a good thing with negativity.
Even more frustrating, The Dice have changed.
Some people forget the Rule of Rex;
“If it ain’t broke, don’t break it!”
Some of the badness I can deal with, learn from
Change back to good.
Others are my fault, at least in part
So if I try Even Harder to be the bigger person
Then I can cancel out the Fools.
I just have to tighten my mind.
Seek out the smiles in each day.
Rise above the poop.
Roll the New Dice
See if they can make the magic.
There are real problems out there.

In a Good Way

Today was The Day
I felt it in the morning, as I joked
But it really was.
The strands between us all
Dance as we try to reach
For the others around us
We need that touch
Of flesh or thought
Making the real
Into Magic.
Today was just that sort of Day.
