Lookout Point

Post by carndo » Thu May 23, 2019 3:16 pm

reaching past that forlorn moment
risen in that lookout point
in which is seen
on a granite spire
to see the whole valley
where the river flows
from the mountains
in the southeast
explorations made
in those times
existential
in the way we look at it
transformations
made in a moment
and yet...
life is just before you

What?

Post by carndo » Tue Jun 18, 2019 3:00 pm

what?
you walk around
thinking that I'm a doofus
yet...
you support morons like Gulliani
who wouldn't know common sense
if it bit him in the ass
hell...
listen to him
he kisses Trump's ass
each time he represents him
and apparently neither knows
the constitution
he's an errand boy
pretending to be a lawyer
and the jokes on him
yet he's too stupid to see it
but that's the idiots
you vote for
and I'm the doofus?

World Full Of Choices

Post by carndo » Tue Jun 18, 2019 3:02 pm

a world full of choices
art that touches the soul
of those who believe in it
creations of mind and skill
perceptions rise within the abstract
journeys found within the milestone
contemplations punctuate in the exploration
of the imagination
where it's found in plain sight
inclinations of hope
vibrant hues
mingle within the colors
silhouettes of dreams
penetrate in a miracle of time
turning points in the distance
available in the immediate future
lyrical in those tomorrows

Visions Found

Post by carndo » Tue Jun 18, 2019 3:03 pm

standing rock
where visions are found
watching within that rhythm
invoked in remembrance
celebrated in the sacred
given wings to touch that freedom
life abundance
to teach those certain meanings
symbols within the heart
wisdom for all to hear
flames of truth
enlightenment
for those who will listen
sanctuary in moment and time
find that whisper in the wind

Those Who Forge Ahead

Post by carndo » Thu Jun 27, 2019 9:50 am

run from the guns and hatred
that races red with the blood
which flows from whence you came
only wanting freedom
for your little ones

you weep that sorrow
which cuts deep
within your heart
knowing that you never
can return home

yet you know
it must be
if your kids ever
have a future

so you bear the indignities
in a place
that you know not the language

but maybe time
is meant for those
who forge ahead
reaching a simple moment
with those who share
your name

Lunaria

Post by carndo » Sat Jun 29, 2019 12:28 pm

the moon
which hangs full
within the sky
sings to the heart
luminous
infinite with her light
rises within that tide
held in rhythm
shared to the shores
of this place
in which we call home
and yet
we feel it
honor it with all the passion
we have
she nourishes the night
with her presence
and for the rest of our lives
she will influence
the way we live

That Simple Truth

Post by carndo » Sat Jun 29, 2019 12:32 pm

that simple truth
that resides within
singing loud and brash
not caring what anyone thinks

revealing more about ourselves
than we want
because we refuse to look in the mirror
at our own reflection

afraid of what
we might find
in our own vanity

and yet
we can't walk away

why?

because it shows us
who we are

Illusions Reach

Post by carndo » Sat Jun 29, 2019 1:34 pm

illusions reach
into that past
yet influence not

creativity
somehow finds that need
in which must be satisfied

insight
finds that passion
where wisdom is gained

through all the tribulations and trials
eventually truth is found

Free As The Winds

Post by carndo » Sat Jun 29, 2019 6:05 pm

free as the winds
blowing during springtime
free as sunshine
warming one's bones
free as the waves
washing upon the shore

and yet...
some refuse to see
those gifts
only to take them for granted

not seeing
what has been given

not realizing
that certain boons
must be honored
in the life they live

for we are only temporary
in this life
that we live

Languages That Reach

Post by carndo » Sat Jun 29, 2019 7:33 pm

languages
that reach
deep within the soul
where that understanding
stands fast
and stays forever
in one's conscience

I know
that chatter
annoys one
after a fashion

yet communication
must be met

otherwise how
can intelligence
be gained
in this world
that we live in?

For Some Reason

Post by carndo » Mon Jul 01, 2019 3:25 pm

for some reason
one has lost trust
reasons
somehow lost in the wind
for the most part
it doesn't matter
yet...
to some it does
the thing is
does one want to
listen to the stories
and rumors
that continues
like a soap opera
into next month?
I thought not

Things As They Are

Post by carndo » Mon Jul 01, 2019 3:28 pm

things as they are
change
even when you don't expect them to
but isn't that life for ya?
it's funny
how plans are thrown into chaos
when something unexpected
pops up
and throws a monkey wrench
into plans months created
and you're left with
murphy laughing at ya
telling you
you should have had a plan b
and for some reason you don't have one
can one say...
improv time?

One Of Those Days

Post by carndo » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:56 am

one of those days
I'll show up and ask
Remember me?
you'll smile and act coy saying
Should I?
it's a game that we play
between us
knowing that neither gets the upper hand
even though we both always try
and yet..
it's something to pass the time

funny how things work out
when you least expect it
but then isn't that life for ya?

sometimes romance just finds a way
arms stretched
where the warmth reaches within
those interludes held in a moment of time
celebrated by two hearts
that near addiction
where a need is met

And I remember your smile

Rise Into The Fold

Post by carndo » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:59 am

memories rise into the fold
rage into shadows
without ever knowing what it means
and yet...
do we ever?

understanding is somehow
left out the window

and innocence somehow
never came

but here we are
walking into those trails
that are ahead of us

and the silent song
is whispered
by a siren

Fragile Within The Leaves

Post by carndo » Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:41 am

horizons found within the clouds
pictures rising within the mind
and yet...
summer touches that warmth
that ritual of harmony
in which everyone feels
a breeze flows to cut
the searing heat
thresholds somehow find their place
and the intensity of the seasons
affirms life as it is
those dignities of vision
finds that moment
held minute by minute
voyages yet explored
fragile within the leaves
