(a world and more of travels)...

    a world and more of travels...
    ride the realms of here and now...
    some roads are so congested...
    others barely tred somehow...

    passengers... pedestrians...
    at times they intersect...
    through chance's navigator...
    or some journey they select...

    and when those crossroads happen...
    there's alot that may occur...
    though that's not saying circumstance...
    shall meet as might infer...

    perhaps that's why i'm grateful...
    that our paths have come to touch...
    we get to view these moments...
    and yet still we see so much!...
          
        (so gee)...


    is giving and taking...
    all my own making?...

    did i create...
    love and hate?...

    is what you see...
    left up to me?...

        ~~~~~~~
      
      (innocent air)...

    innocent air...
    before aroma comes...
    for something more there...

    a good aroma?...
    or a bad aroma?...
    every nose knows...
    their smell tells them so...

    innocent air...
    until there is smell...
    then noses go sniffing...
    for scents of heaven or hell...

    (a nose poked on the window pane)...


    a nose poked on the window pane...
    a tail in the till...
    a lookout up and down the hall...
    to see what time can kill...

    lonely hinges creaking...
    whispers creeping in...
    leering paws in motion...
    filing midnight claws to thin...

    a foot race for the door mouse...
    past a flying bug that's floored...
    a clean sweep by the chimney bat...
    climbing bareback up onboard...

    deafened towards a tendency...
    that full blown fear hears best...
    these lessers of a great unknown...
    prey on their sleeping guest...

    feast and famine mingle...
    on a single handcut tray...
    where entertaining treasures...
    were laid out to grace the day...

    the keeper dreams above his sheets...
    under darkened homespun threads...
    while a heist amid nocturnal life...
    plays thief around his head...

    dawn breaks off accomplice shade...
    as deeds retreat to hide...
    among the light that blinds the way...
    to shadows from another side...

    then when the window's opened...
    and the till's spilled out to air...
    the keeper counts his blessings!...
    for what is and isn't there!...

              ~~~
anyhow...
        
        (if i was a bird)...

    i'd fly around the world...
          and land right next to you!... :)

    (essence warms a welcome mat)...

    essence warms a welcome mat in yet another step...
    through shades of day...   'neath dark of night...
    on lengthless time...   in a moment's light...
    from all that goes...   to whatever stays...
    while bringing close...   so faraway...
    in laying low...   and raising high...
    nature's walk...   a passer-by...
    a step inside...   onto live...
    into life...   love to give...

    ~~~~~~


    (seems a fine line)...                 


    seems a fine line...
    entwine the sides...
    what determines...
    who decides?...

    for every right...
    we might impose...
    may somehow step...
    on other's toes...

    so who's to judge?...
    and who's to know?...
    who's to say?...
    which way it goes?...

    seems a fine line...
    entwine the sides...
    what determines...
    who decides?...

    gather 'round the fire boys...
    gather all around...
    tell ya a story of the bold of the old...
    and how they brought the devil down!...

    elson jones was a mighty man...
    the meanest man in town...
    rode the thunder on his way down yonder...
    to track the devil down!...

    leroy parks wore spurs of sparks...
    and kicked the dust to hell...
    beckoned the wind to follow him...
    and snare the devil's spell!...

    johnny sands had a trigger hand...
    and a glean tucked to his belt...
    quick to lick with his magic trick...
    that the devil never felt!...

    sonny black played a one-eyed-jack...
    while his ace hid in the hole...
    showdown time was on the line...
    and the devil lost it all!...

    lefty simms stood six shots in...
    by the west end of the bar...
    gutted five down the devil's hide...
    and the devil staggered far!...

    cowboy joe rode the rodeo...
    his lasso framed the sky...
    remember well the day it fell...
    and the devil's hands were tied!...

    these outlaw men brought the devil in...
    the sheriff locked the door...
    the hangman's noose was none too loose...
    and the devil walked no more!...

    gather 'round the fire boys...
    gather all around...
    tell ya a story of the bold of the old...
    and how they brought the devil down!...

        (how much is a moment worth)...


    how much is a moment worth?...
    when it's sent from up above...
    how much does a moment mean?...
    when it gives our lives its love!...

    how far does a moment go?...
    if it travels hand by hand...
    how far can a moment reach?...
    if it's shared by every man!...

    how deep can a moment touch?...
    when it's beckoned by that call...
    how deep will a moment feel?...
    when it's in the hearts of all!...

    how long will a moment live?...
    if it lasts the length of time...
    how long does a moment take?...
    to be both yours and mine!...

    (abby)...

    abby loved to swing herself...
    'twas not for others to see...
    she sang to her soul and smiled inside...
    that tire strung to the tree...

    what a joy to feel the breeze...
    trickling through her hair...
    each whisper of wind tangling the strands...
    but abby didn't care...

    in that early dusk of day...
    the coolness did unfold...
    a tingling to her arms and legs...
    but abby wasn't cold...

    so lightly did her little feet...
    treadle the puddle of ground...
    dusting her toes with a magic...
    that others hadn't found...

    above a bird blew music...
    which nestled in abby’s ear...
    a solo of nature’s symphony...
    that others didn't hear...

    in the midst a tiny twig...
    fell to abby’s head...
    a leafy halo of happiness...
    which others would have shed...

    alone with all of creation...
    her swinging with the flow...
    was of a simple... easy... delight...
    that others didn't know...

    dusk fell into darkness...
    as her mother led the way...
    back home to early bath and bed...
    but abby showed no dismay...

    for all the love she discovered in life...
    was there for her to find...
    she found what so few others see...
    though abby was born blind!...

            (grandpa)...


    i guess this is the last i'll see ya...
    they're burying you today...
    so wishin' you were still alive...
    wouldn't mean much... anyway...
    your life here is over...
    all i have are memories...
    and grandpa... that's the best thing...
    you could ever leave to me...

    grandpa... it's you i came to see...
    grandpa... the things ya told to me...

    the time ya pushed that outhouse o'er...
    when you were still in school...
    and got the teacher mad at you...
    ya broke the golden rule...
    that little girl... a'sittin' there...
    what a way for her to fall...
    miss goody shoes... she cried the blues...
    when ya pushed down those four walls...

    grandpa... it's you i came to see...
    grandpa... the things ya told to me...

    ya didn't have much... growin' up...
    but ya always had enough...
    like that bottle'a booze in the cornfield...
    that ya wish ya hadn't a'touched...
    and the times ya took the huckster load...
    and rode with your mother to town...
    sellin' what ya grew at home...
    workin' sun-up... til sun-down...

    grandpa... it's you i came to see...
    grandpa... the things ya told to me...

    that geezer down in wilmington...
    who followed ya home one night...
    and shot the breeze on the boardin'-house porch...
    oh you remembered him... alright...
    he dwelt on the height'a laziness...
    with his fast-talk... and funny jokes...
    and in your mind... he was that one-of-a-kind...
    found in the stories ya hear from old folks...

    grandpa... it's you i came to see...
    grandpa... the way ya were with me...

    when i knew ya... you were already old...
    and i did my best to steer clear...
    and not til the times that we sat down and talked...
    did i find out you were such a dear...
    the silence of a straight-laced man...
    who scared me half to death...
    became my friend... and now in his end...
    he's laid down... to his rest...

    grandpa... it's you i came to see...
    grandpa... the way ya were with me...

in full support of...

edward snowden!...

chealsea manning!...

julian assange!...

courage to resist!...

iraq veterans against war!...

and everyone working to

for a better future of

~~~

     for wikileaks and the u.s.a.!...


    in a land where a country's high leaders lay claim...
    united states people stand feeling close pain...
    their ears hear those big shots come up with excuses...
    but a quick look around soon reveals where the truth is!...

    from vacant lot store fronts to more soldiers' graves...
    home planted sale signs hide mailbox names!...
    college loan paybacks tack federal debt...
    while industrial workers learn of layoffs they'll get!...

    from stress-filled environments to lone chilly rooms...
    paycheck to paycheck can't face future doom!...
    already our seniors and jobless and ill...
    view less options left with so few dollar bills!...

    this is our country folks!... see for yourselves!...
    the majority are us and most everyone else!...
    struggling with hardships under all those in charge!...
    as governmental misbehavior runs rampant at large!...

    why is it our leaders dislike these truths shown?...
    is it not we the people who deserve rights to know?!...
    when did government's first duty become serving the government?!...
    and not justly the people for whom they were sent!...

    how can leaders say 'patriot' means being patriotic to them?...
    when they won't play by the rules a constitution defends!...
    instead it is them who lack the patriotism...
    to stop their own underhand tactics which bring further bad things!...

    and how can leaders use terrorism as an overall reason?...
    to keep their own bully methods hidden somewhere in secret?!...
    they intimidate unfairly to sway public opinion...
    and steer clear of truth needed to fix dilemmas we're in!...

    this is our country folks!... see for yourselves!...
    the majority are us and most everyone else!...
    struggling with hardships under all those in charge!...
    as governmental misbehavior runs rampant at large!...

    how can government's deception be the best way to rule?...
    when that curve of its wrist bends most fair and square tools!...
    hence without accountability it'll feed a free-for-all!...
    as our country's representatives wheel and deal above the law!...

    it's no surprise that the government abhors wikileaks!...
    truth might hinder officials from doing as they please!...
    and make it more difficult to reassure u.s. citizens...
    not to fret government's business and leave it all up to them!...

    but we must tend to our nation and future well-being!...
    to end unjust procedures and the policies we're seeing!...
    they insist we believe in things proven untrue!...
    now we need these disclosures to help build anew!...                         

    this is our country folks!... see for yourselves!...
    the majority are us and most everyone else!...
    struggling with hardships under all those in charge!...
    as governmental misbehavior runs rampant at large!...

    support wikileaks!... http://wikileaks.ch

    good morning to the dawn!…


    somewhere folks grow happy… somewhere folks run sad…
    somewhere lives a fine line… dividing traits they have…
    sometimes something’s taken… making room enough to add…
    another blessing springing… to change the loss they had…
    a man stands in the doorway… a light hangs in that hall…
    shades upon a window… raise from halfway drawn…
    time relays a message… life has come to call…
    good night to fading darkness… good morning to the dawn!…

    somewhere hearts pour open… somewhere hearts stay closed…
    somewhere lives a fine line… declaring traits they hold…
    sometimes something’s taken… leading up to heavy woes…
    the nature of most kinfolk… forget those words they’re told…
    a man stands in the doorway… a light hangs in that hall…
    shades upon a window… raise from halfway drawn…
    time relays a message… life has come to call…
    good night to fading darkness… good morning to the dawn!…

    somewhere love’s root touches… somewhere truth tunes in…
    somewhere moves a fine line… to how it all begins…
    sometimes something’s taken… as god almighty gives…
    his son’s renewed creation… and path for souls to live…
    a man stands in the doorway… a light hangs in that hall…
    shades upon a window… raise from halfway drawn…
    time relays a message… life has come to call…
    good night to fading darkness… good morning to the dawn!…

     waking up from propaganda’s daze...


    it’s startling to awaken from propaganda’s great brainwashing...
    feels like closed attic windows suddenly opened to fresh air...
    where breezes unwrap layers of antique trained thoughts...
    and clear the mind’s view to time’s lockboxes there!...

    how different that huge government trunk now looks...
    its material once hidden under thick publicity-stunt dust...
    sits cracked at its hinges snapped by rigged rules and hooks...
    unable to maintain weak disguises of real democracy and trust!...

    pages in schoolbooks and newspapers stack up in strewn shame...
    as juggled facts and half-truths no longer hold enough weight...
    unveiled scales of misinformation reveal pieces of a game...
    played to keep we-the-people from controlling our fate!...

    established ideas get rattled when facing truer realizations...
    steadfast loyalty falls sick on learning it supported hypocrisy...
    heartbreak lives with what’s left after deception drains a nation...
    while new awareness inside starts to form a far better occupancy!...


                                              ~~~

    gazan holocaust...


    gazan holocaust!...
    lives and homes lost...
    israel closes in then fires...
    overfilled with killing desire!...

    the oppressor forgot its old heartbreaking woes...
    how it feels being persecuted by an unyielding foe!...
    now it’s similarly become what it once had condemned...
    destroying innocent people and urgent necessities for them!...
