Annoying Christmas Songs

Post by carndo » Tue Mar 17, 2020 4:38 pm

annoying Christmas songs

fading in and out

like an old AM radio station

where one can repeat the lyrics

because they've been overplayed

like the top 50 of the past

somehow

they've become echoes

they've lost their originality

that begin

to sound like a repeating mantra

that most have forgotten

why they are sung

and their meaning

but then that over commercialization

that everyone thinks'

it's about "me"

rather than we

as it should be

May Your Pockets Be Full

Post by carndo » Tue Mar 17, 2020 4:39 pm

may your pockets be full

touch those minerals

that lay in the sun

rich in those colors

reach within the rainbows

that somehow touches the heart

take that walkabout

wherever it leads

listen to the wind

as she whispers...

go find what you want

treasures lay ahead

within your travels

Serenading

Post by carndo » Sat Apr 25, 2020 10:12 am

serenading through those echoes

which soar within the airwaves

creating epic visions

explosive in unimaginative reactions

that somehow leave one

simply breathless

and yet you feel the vibrations

that awaken one's soul

making one feel alive

wanting more

so you reach

and open your eyes

to see what's out there

what will you find?

the adventure has just begun

Rhythms Within The Arrival

Post by carndo » Mon Jun 29, 2020 12:43 pm

rhythms within

where in that circle

that arrival has just begun

and all the while

the anticipation

has you jumping

like bouncing ball

and somehow

you can't help yourself

you've waited for

this very event

for years

and now its come

the piped piper

has finally come

you've listened to that music

since you were a child

that simple joy

brought a smile to your face

and now

you get to listen to it live

Peaceful Waters

Post by carndo » Mon Jun 29, 2020 12:44 pm

peaceful waters

running through my mind

let all my troubles

completely flow away

nature finds that rhythm

which touches within the soul

never mind the darkness

the light will finally come

we just need that patience

to simply see things through

time will find that answer

we sometimes refuse to see

but that moment will come

when we let it be

I'm Amazed

Post by carndo » Fri Jul 17, 2020 9:32 pm

I'm amazed by what I see

in nature

in all her glory

the design within the stone

the pattern

that's effortlessly done

the color

within the richness

of what is seen

by the naked eye

and we humans

only aspire to achieve

a fraction

of what is before us

within this universe

The Truth Of The Matter

Post by carndo » Thu Aug 06, 2020 3:14 pm

the truth of the matter is

that sometimes it simply doesn't matter

no matter how much you want it to

it glares in your face

daring you to change the facts

and while you lie withing that confusion

it laughs

as chaos always does

knowing certain premises won't change

regardless of how uncomfortable that maybe you feel

Ghosts That Follow

Post by carndo » Thu Aug 06, 2020 3:15 pm

ghosts that follow

within the evening

shadows reach into the chaos

hallowed into the twilight

yet laughter jeers

within the tears

never letting one forget

those trespasses

held within

yes sirens call

reaching into one's soul

making you only wanting

something that can not be

but sometimes karma

comes calling

telling you

remember when?

Rivers That Flow Wide

Post by carndo » Fri Aug 21, 2020 3:24 pm

rivers that flow wide

within the canyons

where the mountains

touch the sky

and an eagle spreads his wings

soaring within his freedom

knowing that the horizon

is in full view

reaching for the stars

in this wide universe

that breathes life

Rhythms That Awaken

Post by carndo » Fri Aug 21, 2020 3:25 pm

rhythms that awaken the heart

melodies that touch the soul

can you hear what has been awakened?

inspiration touches in that moment

contemplated within the metaphor

yet celebrated

why?

why not?

it's all a matter of perspective

that can be taken in

within that page of time

Life Finds A Way

Post by carndo » Fri Aug 21, 2020 3:27 pm

a breeze flows within the afternoon

where within that moment

life finds a way to make one smile

specific reasons matter not

only the memory kept

reflections touch within

echoes in the harmony

and life finds a way

to continue

Here I Am Reaching

Post by carndo » Thu Aug 27, 2020 5:35 pm

here I am

reaching for something I can not grasp

yet the reality

is right in front of me

what is it that I'm not seeing?

and why is that truth

grinning like a Cheshire cat?

mocking me at every

forward step that I'm taking

it feels like

for every step that I take

I fall two steps backwards

and start over again

yet I won't quit

is my own ego

biting me

where it hurts the worst?

why can't I see

what I need to do?

the path is right in front of me

all I need to do

is take it

Matters

Post by carndo » Fri Aug 28, 2020 7:10 pm

funny thing

all the memories

still rage in my head

I can remember details

that happened when I was a kid

yet at the same time

struggle to remember

where I put things

two months ago

funny how that works

at not paying attention

to what one thinks

matters

We've Amused Ourselves To Death

Post by carndo » Mon Aug 31, 2020 10:05 am

Yes...

we've amused ourselves to death

in this life of

possessions

things..

that we have to have

capitalism...

in its worst traits

and the sad thing

we all wanted

exactly...

what we could get

why?

our greed

Some of it is greed, some of it is that we were lied to... and we didn't see it coming.
