"Psychedilic Cat"

Timothy Leary slumbers
Nearby strings await in silence
There is no abandoned Peavy
Laying in dust ridden ruins
Within this container of nostalgia
Forgotten dreams of a Martin
Settling for something less
Easily obtained
Nobody notices the difference
Except me
Rose colored granny glasses
Hidden away in the drawer
Albums in racks
Thelonious Monk,Sonny Boy Williamson,
Muddy Waters,John Booker......
Just to mention a few
Imaginations of Greenwich Village
Settling for Old Town in Chicago
Freight train whistles in the distance
Noise in the city of disbelief
Cold faces filled with wrought
On the street
New Orleans is whispering to me
Down in the Quarter
Sitting on the sidewalk
Smoking a stale Picayune
While crows jaw nearby
The fog filled air with its odors
The vortex cannot penetrate
I am filled with delirium
Sweet music and the voices of daughters
Let the silver cord be loosed
Over the horizons
I have made good my escape!

"Eye to Eye"

What are your thoughts
Of this moment in time
Innocence reigns momentarily
We know not of a dimming sun
A brief chapter in transcience
Under a clear sky
Fresh breath enters the nostrils
Hearts are filled with joy
Darkened clouds are held at bay
As we look upon eachother
In wonder of who we are

Reaching for that which remains elusive
A force in effect beyond twilight
One thing remains inconclusive
In vain attempts to reunite
Twinklings seem evasive
Defying all attempt
No musings of impending doom
Or presence of contempt
Expectations of reaching out
Into the mighty abyss
Making its mark in known existence
In spite of all remiss

"Reliable Friend"

Waiting by the window
Patience is your virtue
In silence with a sewn smile
Even in darkness
Turning the light on
Knowing what to expect
You are impervious
The enviornment reacts
Two sides are needed
For actions to take effect
Your companionship
Fools who wander aimless
In their quest
All things however are irreplaceable
That is why I love you as I do
