Beat by Beat

   
The vibe in my head is a, spinning wheel she said
Welcome to the jungle, primal innocence is blissful
Grass burning, mind floating
Big wheel keep on turning

Sound all around and amplified, together they collide
Mash up, crash up
Fill a bong, pass along
Play another Pink Floyd song

Sitting on the floor, whiskey to pour
Room full of squatters, lined up shooters
Sipping ale, spinning tales, make it a whale

We are but travelers passing by as real life actors
Giving lessons, perhaps finding answers to questions
Seeking
Hoping
Filling

What we get is a moment, however brief and transient
Dare it be a pleasure
Bringing joy and laughter

Strangers from afar, imagine if, from another star
Yet how at ease we are to touch the heart in such a way
To become in tune to another’s sway

Regardless of the booze and drugs
Take it as a portal to release the plugs
Everyone you meet, a brother, a sister we should greet
Let it take you, beat by beat

Blues, Highs and Lows

winter blues, carries them apart
words, he said/she said, keeping them apart
fettered cries exhaling breaths, tearing them apart
spring blues, when trees fail to blossom
like words frozen, they fail to blossom
yields not a step forward, smiles fail to blossom
summer blues, the heat just keeps coming
hurtful words aflame, just keeps coming
tears never-ending, just keeps coming
autumn blues, life begins to fade
another harsh winter , life begins to fade
seasons, it’s over as life begins to fade

winter blues, carries us together
words, he said/she said, keeping us together
fettered laughs inhaling breaths, melding us together
spring blues, when trees begin to blossom
like words floating, flowers start to blossom
yields a bounty of smiles, evoking joy to blossom
summer blues, the heat just keeps coming
Passionate words aflame, just keeps coming
kisses never-ending, just keeps coming
autumn blues, cuddle nights with you
thankful blessings, living life with you
starting seasons all over, with you
