Old Roads

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:47 pm

those old roads
revisited within minds
held in memory
where the past
touches
yet finds in that fondness
a heart is
sheltered
yet somehow
what mattered...
touches
like a forgotten smile
reaching hand to hand
in friendship
never letting go

Perhaps

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:49 pm

perhaps
to touch within that forbidden fruit
tis not a wise decision

for consequences may bear out
within thy fate

twas the last thing
a certain fellow
found out in passing

he disappeared in the woods
and no one has heard a word
from him since

there is an old saying
watch your back
when making
indiscretions

Finding Those Crossings

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:50 pm

finding those crossings to bare
letting one find a simple peace
pervasive in the sacred
where the heart
warmly greets

finding those answers
that everyone seeks

allowing the wisdom
to flow

fellow invocations
mired in the past

yet some gratefully behold
the day
as it lasts

Within That Twain

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:52 pm

tethered
in that illusion
within that twain
where
moments matter not
circles found
in that imperfect
eddy
carved
with the wind
and raid
in dry canyons
where howls
haunt the night
and the moon shines
in whispers

Could It Not Be Said

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:53 pm

could it not be said
that to care
for your fellow man
is but an honor
to show compassion
tis but a simple thing
to see someone hungry
or cold
is a mission
that should be cared for
and taken cared of
not everyone has the simple things
that some take for granted
and to give from the heart
shows that you care
what a wonderful
thing to share
where that need is met

Tolerance

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:55 pm

reading
within those times
where inconsistances find
that tolerance
some seem to lose

and in those passions
that simplification
somehow overrides
common sense

and yet one would think
that a little
patience would come to play

but alas
some of us
are still waiting

Rising The Sun

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:56 pm

dandelions
rising in the sun
where summer has begun
those seasons
finding their way
and the year is just beginning
festivals
in those journeys
where troubadours sing
jesters joke
and life keeps smiling

Enjoy The Journey

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 10:57 pm

enjoy the journey
that one is given

find those moments
those treasures in time

moments that make one smile

seconds that are jewels within the heart

listen to the warm
those seconds
where you find a friend

grasp that moment
keep it
treasure it
value it
like a family heirloom

Bring It On

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 11:00 pm

the levity
that one finds
in life
sometime's brings tears to one's eyes

Why?
because of the situations
we find ourselves in

and we bring it on ourselves
and the universe
has no
compassion
for fools

and so all we can do is smile
and laugh at ourselves
for playing the victim

then continue on
the next day
and hope that it's
a better one
than the day before

Looking Past

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 11:11 pm

looking past

that memory

held

in written thought

where

imaginations flow

within a branch

of time

where beginnings

find

simple

surroundings

completed

in images

rounded

yet held

in a breath

of

eternity

Darkest Shadows

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 11:13 pm

to touch within

those darkest shadows

where they jeer and laugh

leaving me wondering

what the hell is going on?

and why me?



because they simply can

and they spare not your feelings



sometimes they simply like to

make you scream



taunting you

when and where they can



and enjoy making you angry



why?



it's simply what

chaos does



raining on everyone's parade

Changes In The Weather

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 11:14 pm

that dittle, dattle
moment of the day
where the drizzle
moans on
keeping spring
as a tease

leaving one
wondering
will this weather
finally change?

or will mother nature
keep all of us
guessing?

it leaves one
scratching their head

will she ever make up her mind?

Trenches

Post by carndo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 11:17 pm

trenches

within the sand

where memories

rise and fall

within those images

created in imaginations

where some forget to listen

yet only speak

in frustrated tones

sheltered in visions

of their own making

Lonesome Cities 2

Post by carndo » Sun Feb 17, 2019 9:40 am

echoes found
in that promise
where vestiges of time is known
celebrated beyond question
imagination
of lonesome cities
where strangers
hide in those shadows
afraid to live
dilemmas
of every day life
seen in images
immanent
in what really matters
that insight
needed
in this very day

Spoken

Post by carndo » Sun Feb 17, 2019 9:42 am

Spoken from the heart
tis said
yet does one?

we see this world
with such cynicism

truth is sometimes forgotten

why?

because we assume
that someone else will tell it

and we don't walk the walk
most only...
talk the talk

we need to ask the question
why?

and keep asking it

until someone finally
simply listens
