Marching

 

They should have left Jesus in his tomb

It would have served us well

Leave the dead

Sleeping in their coffins

The living would sleep better still

 

Serve the living

Glorify our heartbeats

Sing songs praising the universe

Write poems about justice

Celebrate humanity

Talk with the old

Play with the young

 

Onward marching soldiers

Marching hand in hand

With the mark of stardust

As our only brand

We, the loyal master

Leads against folklore

forward into kinship

See our banners flow

Praying Presidents

I guess certain prayers do work

Today only born again candidates want to be president.

Many have actually talked with you.

Tell me god,

Did you whisper in their ears to forget the homeless.

Did you send a heavenly email to call real sinners gay.

Did they get a note “from the desk of god” to ignore the poor.

Why are you sleeping with the rich, didn’t your son despise them?

Oh I see – its for the cause   –    cause ya love us.

A Reason for the Season

A Reason for the Season

The holiday season is unique

Lively living with lights and laughter

Much to do about giving and love

I must add for me it’s a banquet of life

A celebration of family and friends

Even strangers become a delight

Memories are also part of this meal

Favorite gifts are ones not bought

Childhood thoughts are like dessert

sweet and sprinkled with melancholy

Things are missed this time of year

Wishing lost loved ones where once again here

Also missed is someone once held dear

Someone I talked to through out the year

For you see this season there is no Christ

Only stories and fables created by a few

He can not hear those sitting in a pew

We alone create this season of love

This helps me understand

A reason for the season

So be of good cheer

It’s amazing what stardust has made

In billions of years

A Walk in the Rain

I stroll in the rain,

my soul has no cover.

Another walk in vain.

I shed a soothing tear,

It hangs on my cheek, licked by my lover.

Water’s cleansing, is hiding I fear

Sunlight on bodies like swaying grain.

Our star exposes like no other.

Showing the source of pain.

Healing power for the brain,

natures storms have nothing to offer.

No help from any kind of rain

The god in my life is nature’s glue.

The nature of god is you and me.

Doctrine created by someone like you?

My god of youth gave me pain.

Teaches attributes, it’s a gain.

My god today says that is insane.

Niagara Falls times ten and again.

Can not wash me free.

Gods with sins are now my zen.

Gods like you and me and family.

Gods within nature thats the force.

No pulpit can declare a single source.

Listening to my grand kids words,

While  somewhere pulpit bully’s scream.

Is like tasting natures  hors o derves

So cry and do walk in the rain.

Your umbrella is people like us all.

People that understand, understand pain.

Praise us from whom all blessings flow

Praise the sky and all below

Praise nature and the heaven’s above

Praise people, Sun and love

I stroll in the rain,

my soul has no cover.

I continue my trek in vain

No effect has a soothing tear,

It hangs on my cheek, licked by my lover.

Water’s cleansing, is hiding I fear

Sunlight on bodies like swaying grain.

Our star exposes like no other.

Showing the source of pain.

Healing power for the brain,

natures storms have no tender.

No help from any kind of rain

The god in my life is nature’s glue.

The nature of god is you.

Doctrine created by someone like me?

My god of youth gave me pain.

Teaches attributes, it’s a gain.

My god today says that is insane.

Gods like you and me and family.

Gods within nature thats the force.

No pulpit can declare a single source.

Somewhere zealots spit their curd.

I’m Listening to my grand kids words,

That’s like tasting natures h’ordevers

So cry and do walk in the rain.

Your umbrella is held by many hands.

Hands of people that understand.

Praise us from whom all blessings flow

                       Praise the sky and all below

Praise nature and the heaven’s above

                       Praise people, Sun and Love
