--fountainhead valve--/

The breeze blows a slow dance
It walks across the sky †
The mist floats a soul path †
Link of water to higher math... †
†  
A fire of circles ring the moon †
Was time or space torn into? †
Did the heavens fall? †
Or our hearts ascend renewed... †  
†  
We crossed the altars beast †
And left the soul at peace †
The towers stand on either side †
A pole for each and each a sum... †
†  
Melodic focus the mind's eye †
See a light burn a hole in the sun †
Weaving insight nothing being spun †
A union of both to make the one... †
†  
Dual role to play, our life engage †
Birth of three, the parents relay †
Divine the child, holy matrix made †
A composite temple in us is laid... †
†  
Platonic shaped internal halls †
A system of geometry draws †
We watch the bird commit to fly †
But we never see it fall....

Founding Fathers

I have flashbacks of you, from when I was so young
i thought you left me, to explore this vast galaxy, for mankind
You taught us how to survive on this big banged up, revolving planet
Leaving your footprint for us to use and making us all very bemused

Is that you our founding fathers, in the bright night sky?
Are you coming home, just to check on us or for a final goodbye?
Show us your calling card, but don't let us all lose our mind
Tell us where you went and why you left us all behind

You made structures out of large stones and pointed bricks
Black and white men from all over, have drawn images on their wall
We study lost language that we can't truly understand, at all
Heavy hauling and perfect angles, were they done using a bag of tricks?

Is that you our founding fathers, in the bright night sky?
Are you coming home, just to check on us or for a final goodbye?
Show us your calling card, but don't let us all lose our mind
Tell us where you went and why you left us all behind

Moe's lambs and Chris's hens always fighting over their goods
While those wandering dews, slip through to form geometric cracks
The worlds weak, struggle for food and carry their beds on scorched backs
as the Earls and Dukes, live behind security gates, in phoney neighbourhoods

Is that you our founding fathers, in the bright night sky?
Are you coming home, just to check on us or for a final goodbye?
Show us your calling card, but don't let us all lose our mind
Tell us where you went and why you left us all behind

Dear, God my Dog


Did you see the ďlast photoĒ of 2pac and Suge Knight taken at
a set of traffic lights before the car sped off?
Yeah, no keys in the ignition

Sure weíve all thought about no animals
eating each other on Noahís ark
and youíve no doubt got some scientist in your pocket with excuses
trying to justify that bullshit

Iíd have carried on
but Iím not going to Hell for thinking

Dear god

You could have chosen
Any part  
within us  
yet you chose
to introduce  
pain fear and despair  
You chose to bring  
conflict and violence  
you chose  
political corruption  
and arrogance  
to use as your voice  
as in the dark ages of old  
You chose  
the mechanisms  
of destruction  
for the minds of our Young  
yet  
You still refuse  
to grasp the concept    
We are one  
 
The balance  
shall return  
and you
Will Learn  
that no matter what you do  
poison the land  
the air  
the water that we drink  
We  
are going home  
Back  
to our garden  
before  
we became  
what you crave  
Obedient
Psychological
Slaves

I AM THANKFUL YOU SAVED ME

From the deepness of my soul to the love that I feel deep within my heart oh how thankful I am to have you within my life for there has been times during my struggles, I didn't even know if I was going to make it through the storm that seems to be coming from ever direction all at once for there were times when I couldn't see the flowers nor trees due to the thunder and lightening that seems to cover my world within the depth of the darkness. But yet I still face my fears not really knowing if I will make it out alive through my trails and tribulations of the twist and turns with deep curves, for there were times when I placed my own life in harms way due to the fact I was ready to give up without a fight. But I am thankful that you saved me from the storms for through you I gained will to keep pushing forward with the courage to continue to move on to live to see another day upon this earth.

PASSAGE OF LIFE

From my heart I open the depth of my mind but from my soul I release my inner spirit as I open the doors to the stairway to the silents of my darkness of who and what I am as a man, but yet from my visions that became images taken from the pages of my lifetime they became my trails and tribulations the real lessons we sometimes have to learn from life but yet from my eyes was the hurt and pain which some came from love and some came from lessons learned from the devils in human skin. But as the feelings became lesser to feel the unseen tears that once fell down my face slowly healed with the passing of time but as I journey travel and walk through the passage of life with its storms that comes with life I not ask question the most highest spiritual soul, as I know he will always be there walking beside me as I walk through the storms with my faith and my trust for he will give me the courage and the strength to stand and walk as a man of skin flesh and blood as a man who has become unchanged because through him I gain my faith and trust.

The Blessings of the Ankh

Such a beautiful amulet of breath as the wearer to life
Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic of old, to the wearer disavowal of mythical strife
An emblem to a Deity of the Egyptian pantheon
From the wondrous Amazon to the rulers of Babylon

Worn by Pharaoh where ever he may go
Egyptian mummification ceremonies, laid upon, as the last rites were written as told
Breath of life through its electromagnetic properties waved under the nose
The body of preservation
A religious practice without any reservations

The three apparatuses of such a beautiful amulet to wear
Faith of spiritually, self love, and wisdom to care
The vertical stem of the Ankh represents the man
In this universe, his creed he delivers as he solely stands
The horizontal aspect is the nucleus of the womanís earthly energy
The support realm to uphold manís universe and the state when as one, his mental synergy

The loop, a temple to house the creation of life within
The primordial of the galaxy, as the knowledge of higher self to reign
Man, woman, and child, a blessed divinity
Sun, Moon and Star of its trinity
Infinity of the Ankh, therefore, wear always in good faith, good health
Life, death, and the soul rebirth of its symbolic wealth

Hell On Earth

To thy that cast the first stone
Place of paradise, where redemption of fallen grace shall roam   †
Hell, on earth as you could, feel, see † †
No other place that accommodates such sinful needs † †
†† †
The seven deadly sins, oh yes, theyíre real † †
As an Angel, my skin tattered as lashes I feel † †
Satan is within the mind, flames igniting the destructive ruins of thy, soul, heart † †
Right and Wrong, Godís true purpose given from the beginning of time in its natural state of art † †
† †  
Angels, yes, we see, bow under grace, for the sins of you and thee † †
Roaming unaware from sunrise to sunset spreading Godís Heavenly creed † †
Yet, Revelations gives you the seven seals, seven churches, and the pale horse † †
Death and destruction, cast of the wicked, not from the life you lead, but the doctrine of the heartís choice † †
† †  
Now when you say Chant For The Horned Beast † †
The cries from ancestral cotton fields, linage denigration, mass killings, its glorious fame of feast † †
The Heavens, where Godís laws preaches, Pearly Gates, the fiery eyes will never come to see † †
† †
Heaven and Hell are found within the heart, a man, standing in a pulpit preaching the way to salvation † †
One hundred and forty-four soulsí entrance, the others reincarnated to an ungodly world of mind wandering and trepidation † †  
God seeks thy heart without a spot or a winkle † †
Your fate leaves the mind in waiting, which no one knows, itís just that simple

Sacred Contracts XXX: God

Ahavati

Sacred Contracts XXX: God

The shifting shapes of forest  
were kaleidoscopic beneath the sunó      
the marching of water grew distant      
   
The Spirit of the Wood honored      
our presence, accepting obeisance      
at the base of its venerable root        
   
What I had always known manifested      
in the exchange, and the branches movedó      
revealed a realm known only to Native      
   
Foregone history remembers itself      
when boiled clean of presentĖrises      
through its epidermis, lights the surface      
   
Everything I ever thought I knew      
was released before Godís presence      
but, not the god who demands sacrifice      
   
That god of menís heads (I should pause      
here and say, ďYes; bothĒ); that god of egoó      
of insatiable alteration of Truth      
   
Not that god, no; but, Godó      
yes; God      
   
II.      
   
Have you ever imagined what earth      
would look like drained Ė if some      
celestial hose pipe was releasedó      
 
washed away the green and sediment      
dissolving beds of rock, pushing oceans      
and lakes to the bottom of the Universe      
   
What would remain would be interlocking      
webs of root holding space for all that was      
to conceive everything that will be again      
   
That is God Ė interconnecting roots      
of Life bringing forth breath and fruitó      
   
itís gravity pulling everything together      
keeping it solidly affixed, grounded      
so it isnít torn apart like paper      
   
III.      
   
There are Dryads in every forest      
you tread; they whisper your name      
in their natural language of tree      
   
To understand, is to believe magic      
isnít a black bag of secrets to learn;      
but, an olden way of Life to carry on      
   
A realization of what happens NOW      
could never diminish what was THENó      
on the contrary, it fulfills Prophecy;      
   
it solidifies All that is to come from All      
that was when all is said and done      
and we realize we, too, are Godsó      
   
clauses in the otherís Sacred Contract      
fulfilling all that is divinely sacrosanct      
in this fragile, yet holy human experience

Fish and Chips

I know we havenít had the best of relationships,
We donít talk as much like we use to over fish and chips,
But I see you in a different way,
Not as a man  
But as something bigger than what the human brain can comprehend,
Youíre likeÖ
The universeÖ
And all the good that life represents,
Yet weíre free to choose in what to believe.
 
Iím not mad or angry at anything,
Iím just sad at how everything has turned out to be,
How the ugly the world can get,
Itís like they forget  
About kindness and sympathy.
Many choose to turn their backs on their beliefs,
And then wonder why the world is getting so shitty.
 
I know Iím not the best at much of anything,
I try to be a good person starting from within,
I try to show compassion and put out good vibes,
And besides,
Iím a little leery of the way religion has used your name,
Itís become a circus in a political game,
Because it feels like many have lost sight.
 
But the only thing I ask of youÖ
Is to give me the patience and wisdom in what I do,
Because thatís what your son asked of us,
To show one another love.
Dear God.

Well ?

I am sitting here
with a gun in my mouth.
I won't be the one
who jumps in the pool first
with you standing at the side laughing,
me floating
as my soul boils.
 
So we'll sit hear at the kitchen table,
unable to speak
until it's time.
Well go ahead God,
give me a reason
to stay.

When the moment comes,
will I pray?
I know you'll say no,
but if I truly knew that today was the day,
in a quiet moment would I pray?
what would we say?

Omnipotent Journey

Is it age that has me turn aside,  
to think twice because the  
turmoil in my life is nothing new.  

This time around itís  
different news or seems to be,  
though bitter onslaughtí chill  
and words are all the same.  

Before Iím overwhelmed  
this time, I know what I must do,  
and I wonít be alone.  

From those who try to hold me back  
with lists they need for me to fill.  

From shouts that try to blame their  
wants and woes so hard it seems  
the earth will free-fall from its spin  
ó I soon walk out the door.  

Thereís nothing to prepare my rout.  
Iíve all I need for this.  
With coat and gloves and shoes  
and hat, Iím down the stairs.  

Already Iíve a smile that isnít seen  
but felt within my lightened heart  
as deeper in the woods I go,  

where neither voicesí drone  
nor storm can reach.  
Itís all I want to know.  

Each rapid step I take for minutes  
passing till Iíve lost the count,  
and now donít even bother.  

It must be like the crane that  
takes to wing and lets its instinct  
be compass and navigator,  

leaving me as only motion.  
What is my instinct?  

I stop to look up through the trees  
With tiny rippling stars in sight.  
The worldís at rest.  

The cold and crisp of winterís air  
surrounds me and the sentinels.  

Iíve long forgotten where I laid  
the broadsword I never used.  

I didnít need it then  
nor do I need it now.  

Though deep in darkest night,  
the words that I am hearing  
come to me more clearly  
are of myself.  

I feel Iím reacquainting  
with a friend.  

Iíll stay here for a while to think,  
while curious brave the cold,  
peering from foliage and drifts.  

I hardly know how  
or why Iíll be all right.  

As winter makes amends,  
I promise Him Iím doing this  
for only me, I wonít forget again.

I could suffice for Him, I knew

I could suffice for Him, I knew
When I was but a child.
To think of Him as Father, too,
Though was He meek and mild?

The way I know is opposite
From what is meant to be.
His voice intent, mine hesitant,
This force Ďtween God and me.

Yet to suffice and not forsake,
Despite complete withdraw.
But is it more than I can make;
What comes before the Fall?

In chess of Thunderís own device
I leave the game bereft.
In knowing Him, I could suffice
With no more pieces left.
