Dreams Within

Post by carndo » Mon Sep 07, 2020 11:30 pm

dreams within those echoes

where silhouettes raise beyond the shadows

perceptions touch

inside those intuitions

where contemplations find certain needs

defining moments

minute by minute

realms of thought

within abstract principles

Silence Within Time

Post by carndo » Wed Sep 09, 2020 12:30 pm

silence within time

where memories rise

within the dawn

and yet is those

intricacies

moments private

that few see

those bumps in the road

where accidents happen

and in that happening

miracles find their way

a once in a lifetime

moment

that shines like diamond

leaving one thinking

now that was interesting

Running With The Lions

Post by carndo » Fri Sep 11, 2020 1:19 pm

running with the lions

where your heart

breathes freely

the red rage

where one hears the roar

of one

intoxicated of the spirit

where life smiles

that mark of time

intensity

where one looks in those eyes

saying..

there can only be

one king

Private Whispers

Post by carndo » Thu Sep 17, 2020 6:39 pm

private whispers

that reach within the mind

where one hears

that call

touching deeply

reaching into the soul

echo after echo

silent memories

where somehow

if one listens

that meaning becomes clear

but one has to listen

and follow that path

where life had purpose

concise within that trail

understandings will become clear

as life continues

And I'm Thinking

Post by carndo » Fri Sep 18, 2020 8:20 pm

I walk in Gilliam's grocery

sit down with my backpack of books

that I use in reference

writing my poetry

in a slow east Texas town

order a hamburger for lunch

listen to two grocery managers

trading stories

on how they deal with employees

cackling between the two

and I'm thinking....

so this is management

at it best?

very interesting

Life Lives On

Post by carndo » Fri Sep 18, 2020 8:22 pm

I get out of the house occasionally

why?

I'm trying to keep from getting frustrated at my computer

for some reason

the internet glitches off and on

at the most inconvenient times

when one is trying to post something

read something

or you're watching something on Youtube

that you're mesmerized at

and to keep yourself from killing the computer

yea...

it's time to take a break

otherwise the neighbors

will think

I'm completely crazy

oh well..

life lives on

Echoes

Post by carndo » Sun Sep 20, 2020 10:16 pm

To touch within the heart

reaching through those echoes

held within that loving cup

where we see

what we see

in memories



shall we keep that ballad

rhythms set within harmony

lyrics sung so sweetly

yet in the distance

celebrations of the heart

as we touch in that open invitation



echoes met within the night

languages drawn

from moment to moment

where we complete each other



tomorrows found

yet in that future

is not quite known

but it doesn't matter

only what

we have today

Whispers Of Dreams

Post by carndo » Sun Sep 20, 2020 10:54 pm

whispers of dreams

that reside within the heart

listen to those echoes

that whisper truth

which matters

yet find the honor

in the path you travel

reach your hand in friendship

to those that you meet

and given in time

may find a simple wisdom

that you may pass to all

Life Moves On

Post by carndo » Tue Sep 22, 2020 12:34 pm

the autumn rains have started

washing away the dust and heat of summer

the leaves are changing color

and life takes another turn

sometimes for the best

sometimes for the worst

which happened this year?

we will see

but I do know this

somehow it will continue

it's a matter of perspective

that falls into place

but we will manage

and life moves on

Well Here You Are

Post by carndo » Thu Sep 24, 2020 1:10 pm

well here you are

sitting on your throne

not giving a damn

about the people you're supposed to serve

yet that doesn't bother you

does it?



people are dying on your watch

and somehow

it doesn't bother you



you divide the people in your hatred

really?

you don't think

at some point

karma won't bite you in the ass?



history will remember you

as the fool on the hill

and the idiot

who thought the presidency

was all about him



yea and the people you bullied,

insulted, laughed at

will be laughing at you



so sit on your pedestal

you pompous twit

soon you'll be forgotten

gone in a second

and that will be it

Strange

Post by carndo » Sat Sep 26, 2020 1:40 pm

strange

I find myself

enveloped in dreams lately

somehow searching for something

what

I can not discern

what can it mean?

what am I looking for?

it puzzles me

I keep on looking

but simply

why?

Moonlight Visions

Post by carndo » Fri Oct 02, 2020 4:31 pm

moonlight visions

that reach to the moon

cosmic space

where comets zoom

and blinks onto mars

autumn constellations

that smile into one's imagination

orion finds that need

those miracles

that allow you to find your courage

revolving into taurus

that seeks the distance

perseverance

within the heart

Southwest Memories

Post by carndo » Fri Oct 09, 2020 2:45 pm

southwest memories

saddled traveling into the mountains

where old trails still remain

ghosts of the past

and those corners

where people of the east

came to find a home

to raise a cow or two

to plow a farm

maybe raise a family

spark a dream

in finding a rainbow

where they might belong

and they came

with their wagons

their meager belongings

brought a mule or two

just to see the sunrise

and simply settle down

Reaching To Find Something

Post by carndo » Fri Oct 09, 2020 2:46 pm

reaching to find something

but somehow I'm not

seeing what I need to see

off on a cliff

within those visions

touching the sky

yet in the wild blue yonder

the clouds somehow are speaking to me

but exactly what are they saying?

not sure that I'll find out

will just have to wait and bide my time

to see what the results are

the minutes keep on ticking

and I'm left in the wake

but I guess sometimes

that's just life for ya

Beneath An Echo

Post by carndo » Fri Oct 09, 2020 2:48 pm

take a chance on me

find those memories

that rise within the distance

written on thin shoulderblades

touched in those pillows

where we hold each other

on through the night

eyes found gentle

subtle within that smile

those breaths beneath an echo
