Autumn Tribute


In Autumn, the leaves tend to stray.
Taken and carried away by the wind,
that accompanied the first season rain.

People in the streets already
welcome their parade
by wearing season coloured clothing
to fend off those shades of grey.

Still I would like to go where
those leaves now lay.
I rather enjoy their colours,
than I choose to feel grey.

Ever since one time I heard the wind whisper
while I immersed in their play:

"When nature sheds her skin,
a new beginning is on its way."

It simply made me wonder
but maybe I got too carried away.

I seem to stumble, falter, fall......
When I choose words to address you all.
Words belie me, but they are my fate.
And sometimes I post them and sit and wait.

To see what responses my words might bring.
Someone might cough, someone might sing
a kindred song.

Maybe tomorrow.

I link songs 'till my heart's content and knowing
that my day's well spent I slide to sleep with
the ever present kitties.

They are not a toy or poem in jest.
The kitties luv me with all their best.
Their is nothing like my kitty love.

So, you laugh at the jester once again.\
Who has been so bold as to pick up his pen.

And for one moment, reveal. The truth, as only he knows it.

The majik is mine to show you at any time.
You only have to ask.

Or, it shall remain shackled forever.
____________
*********************************************
Embrace your inner kitty...ya know ya wanna!

I have met a few friends in my life.
Most were cats.

A passion


A passion may inspire the
tiresome to resign.

Bathing them in a fountain
where their spirits dwell.

It is not to look for what to believe.
Just believe all will be well.

To look within, when others will
look outside for truth.

To cast off those words politely,
while you hear them say:

"I conclude your feeding a dying fire."

Just allow them to look inside.
Since doubt entertains the truth,
but only for a while...

A passion so formless.
Ageless and without judgement.
An expression of the heart.
Co-creating with senses as humble servants.

Once understood, every wish will be granted.

But only if the seed of unconditional love has germinated.

Dream Sequence #2


Walking behind you,
trying to catch up
Floating in a distance
never want to stop.
This feeling lasts forever,
my pain will never go.
Thinking of the future
some better place, you know.

Footprints in a desert
didn't find the way.
Hope turned into illusion,
nothing left to stay.
Looking at the stars above,
they're shining very bright.
Fading while they're shining
don't want to fear the night.

Come a little closer,
hear what I have to say.
We must go on together
and dream this night away.
There's a full moon rising,
come and dance into the light.
You know the music's playing,
let's go out and feel the night.

The night is passing by,
falling into day.
Looked like it was eternal,
someone heard my pray.
A brand new day is born,
the sun is rising high.
This dream is sadly over,
there's only a blue sky.

"Get This Train A Rollin'"

gimme time for the air flow
bring the distant light into focus
train is runnin' late for the station
tracks are bending time for the slow poke
get this train a rollin'
make some time
and we will get there someday
get this train a rollin'
a little further down the line
and the wheels go
thundering down the track
going there and back
make that whistle blow
let the people know
tomorrow is coming
day after today
it's the future comin' 'round
it's the future comin' 'round

Closed eyes


Closed door, closed eyes,
open thoughts.

Restless fingertips through
grassblades.
No single rip will ever heal,
let it be blown away by the wind,
gently.

Unfurled eyelashes like wings,
blind eyes lose their ends.
Let it be endless,
freely.

Pictures, wrinkled through time.
They shall never be unfrozen.
Let time whirl towards the floor,
peacefully.

Empty pasture
Endless view
Captured youth

Then you

just

Dream Sequence #3


A final dream...
Lay your head down
and sleep on my shoulder.
Lay your head down
and start a new dream.
And for tonight,
the moment is over.
Drift in a lullaby...
Here, where the stars reside
and angels will always be seen.
Lay your head down.
The stars they have
whispered...
Hear what they say
and know what it means.
The moon is your guide.
The stars have kissed her.
As she goes gently by,
light as a baby's eye,
saved in a fairytail stream
and start a new dream...

Do you believe?


Do you believe?
In the things that you
might feel at christmas eve?
The feeling
that you realize when you really feel.
Real feeling when it's there,
when you can show it's really real.

Do you believe when you think to
be the only one?
Do you believe when it is
mother's son?

How do we believe in love?
Do we think it's something from above?
What does it mean when no one believes?
Like many hearts that have been stolen by thieves.

Do you believe in love someone else is giving?
Or do you believe you need love for living?

Live life day by day
and forget the past.
Live each day as it were your last.
For life is full of many things.
Just open your eyes and spread your wings.

"Dying Ember"

it's a dying ember
and if no one knows
it's still a dying ember
hidden in my heart
where no one ever goes
'cause i still remember


it's dying ember
and if no one cares
it's still a dying ember
burnin' in my soul
goes everywhere i go
will it live forever?

i could say you're the one
'cause we always had such fun
but i'd be a liar
i could wish and dream
keep my distance on the run
that makes me a flier
if i did the things
the things i should have done
then i'd be a hero
but i can't survive
on the prize i never won
that makes me a zero

it's a dying ember
and if no one knows
it's still a dying ember
hidden in my heart
where no one ever goes
'cause i still remember


it's dying ember
and if no one cares
it's still a dying ember
burnin' in my soul
goes everywhere i go
will it live forever?

i wake up
it's just another day
like the other ones
i look around
with fantasy in play
i see another one
like the other one

it's a dying ember
and if no one knows
it's still a dying ember
hidden in my heart
where no one ever goes
'cause i still remember

it's dying ember
and if no one cares
it's still a dying ember
burnin' in my soul
goes everywhere i go
will it live forever?

In my world


The shadowed sun raised,
the dead trees grew out of stone.
A freezing wind
shows me the way back home.

Time keeps moving
but everything stays the same.
The cruelty of a frozen environment,
nothing is different in the end.

The seventh moon shines,
bluebirds fly through the sky.
I keep walking,
and wondering why.

The light


I face the morning
with a smile.
I know the sun will shine
after a while.

I face the stars
in my darkest night.
Because they still
are my light.

I will win
this fight.
Because I'll follow
the light.

Don't leave me (Ne me quitte pas)


Don't leave me
We must forget
All can be forgotten
Which is already fleeing away
To forget the times
Of misunderstanding
And the lost times
To know how
To forget those hours
Which sometimes killed
With blows of "Why?"
The heart of happiness
Don't leave me (4x)

I will offer you
Pearls of rain
Coming from lands
Where it never rains
I will dig the earth
Until after my death
To cover your body
With gold and light
I will make a realm
Where love will be law
Where love will be king
And you will be queen
Don't leave me (4x)

Don't leave me
I will invent for you
Senseless words
Which you will understand
I will speak to you
Of those lovers
Who have twice seen
Their hearts ignite
I will tell you
sweet words
Been able to meet you
Don't leave me (4x)

It has often been seen
For fire to erupt again
From the extinct volcano
That was thought too old
There are, it seems
Scorched lands
Yielding more wheat
Than the best April
And when the evening comes
For the sky to blaze
To the red and the black
Don't leave me (4x)

Don't leave me
I will weep no more
I will speak no more
I will hide myself there
To watch you
Dance and smile
And listen to you
Sing and then laugh
Let me become
The shadow of your shadow
The shadow of your hand
The shadow of your dog
Don't leave me (4x)


Jacques Brel

(Tried to translate it the best that I could out of French. To hear the song, go to the "What are you listening to this morning" thread)

Dream Sequence #5


In every dream I dream,
I can see your face.
There's no dream which passes
without you as a leading part.
When I'm dreaming,
the only thing
I want to see is you.
In every passing dream
all my wishes come true.
In those beautiful dreams
I'm already with you.

My Forrest

In my dreams, I see a forrest,
so clear it's almost true,
a fairytale alive,
a fairytale with you.

To me it is a forrest,
I can touch, that is real.
It's the place where
my thoughts are hiding,
for the way I now feel.

When I want a break from life,
my soul will hide in there,
in my forrest of silence,
until my feelings are clear again.

As I'm walking through my forrest,
as I'm swimming in my lake,
I'm alone, my thoughts are silent,
for the time this feeling takes.

But this forest is only mine,
will always be.
The road towards is still and silent,
a sacred place to me.

If I feel down and depressed,
when life tears me apart,
my thoughts then are hiding,
in my forrest, in my heart.

A million times I've cried
If love alone had saved you
