Right here, right now

Songs play in my mind
Yesterday memories go running by
Days passed and days to come
Yet right here
Right now
Is the time we are alive
Breathing in and out
Effortlessly.
The time has come
Happy soul and open eyes
To the sun as she rises
To say hello
The dark is no more
And the colors before me
Falling leaves and naked trees
Spinning worlds that have no beginning
And no end
The weekend filled with expectations
Of sweaters worn as the days grow short
And cold winds blow
And nights of blankets
Staying in
But that’s tomorrow
And today’s here now
As the minutes move
I think of you
Of roads well-travelled and beauty to find
Here and there and everywhere
Living in joy
And a spirit clear
To laugh
To love
To be
In the now.

Her words left me feeling groovy…..now come on get happy…..peace, K

Art of noise

Wipers sway sliding across
The silver of slippery glass
The voice surrounds
Edging out my thoughts
Gentle peace disrupted
The screeching bird goes on
And on in rage or sorrow
But it don’t matter
Can’t hear her wail
Flick of the wrist
Silencing so swift.

He smiles through the waves
Happy to clap in a roofless room
And the joy contagious
Foot moves to the rhythm
Feeling like dancing suddenly
Yet I’ve got places to go
Moving through this glistening darkness
Feeling the beat of the world.
I didn’t want the drama
Just a bit of gleeful soul
When choices made
The dream can relate
To the moving forward
Not mired down
In business that sells millions,
Just give me a smile
And a jig like beat
As wheels move on down the empty street,
Seeing red lights flash
And it’s back to school,
So bag the trash and find the door
Like back in time
Come on my friends,
let’s boogie some more.

Okay, maybe perhaps I got a good night sleep last night but the morning drive in drizzly rain was not helped by Taylor Swift (sorry friends)girly pop, but man that Pharrel can make me smile…..because I’m happy….thanks for bearing with my goofy verse this morning. Happy Tuesday and stay grooving.

Matters of the path

To move about following signs
Skipping off the path
When we find the time,
Exploring without and within
Jump right back into place
And begin again.
Does it matter which way we move
Where no answer is wrong
And the soul will always approve
To keep forging on and follow the wind
On the road of life
We dare to dream
Of places unseen
Of friends yet to meet
And somewhere in between we find
Maybe the compass shifted us off course
So we right ourselves with a gentle smile
Nothing gained and nothing lost,
But we wake each day
With the highest hope
To climb that hill,
To hang tight to the rope.
But if we let go into the unknown
Now that is the wildness of soul
Set free to be the greatest thing
To find the place to be whole
To find peace and bliss,
Throw away the compass now
And Mark your own maps of life
Because where you are
Is where you’re meant to be
To learn
To grow
To be ready
To fly.
