The Cloud

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams.

From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,
As she dances about the sun.

I wield the flail of the lashing hail,
And whiten the green plains under,
And then again I dissolve it in rain,
And laugh as I pass in thunder.

~© Percy Bysshe Shelley~

'Tis True

As the flowers are all made sweeter by the sunshine and the dew, so this old world is made brighter by the lives of folks like you.

In Bloom

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

Do Not Let Your Fire Go Out

In the name of the best within you, do not sacrifice this world to those who are its worst. In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of man be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved his title. Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours.

Keep In The Sunlight

A Light Unto My Path

I'm not sure where I'm going
only where I've been
It's been sunny and it's been raining
there's been heat and there's been wind.

This path is so uncertain.
with each twist & curve & turn.
I don't know where I'm going.
But each new day, I learn.

Walking In The Clouds

When I do not walk in the clouds I walk as though I were lost.

No More Walls

I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.

Clouds And The Sunset Sky

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Happy Spring!

In springtime, love is carried on the breeze. Watch out for flying passion or kisses whizzing by your head.

Through The Rain

I know its hard
In a world gone mad
To find the truth
To understand
And I know its hard
To turn the page
To walk the line
To have the faith

But sometimes when its light
And you can see
Sometimes when this world
Just seems to be so cold
Sometimes when youre lost at sea
Drowning in your pain
Sometimes the sun shines through the rain

I know its hard
In a world so cold
To feel the love
I know its hard
And I know its true
That in the end
We all find our way
And thats life my friend

But sometimes when its light
And you can see
Sometimes when this world
Just seems to be so cold
Sometimes when youre lost at sea
Drowning in your pain
Sometimes the sun shines through the rain

World keeps turning
Nothing changes
Hope this time
We can rearrange the stars
It cant be that hard, no

Sometimes when its light
And you can see
Sometimes when this world
Just seems to be so cold
Sometimes when youre lost at sea
Drowning in your pain
Sometimes the sun shines through the rain

The Perfect Communion

The one who bows and pays respect,
And the one who receives the bow and the respect,
Both of us are empty.
That is why the communion is perfect.

She ain't waiting 'til she gets older
Her feet are makin' tracks in the winter snows
She got a rainbow that touches her shoulder
She be headed where the thunder rolls

She comes like the secret wind
She's as strong as the mountains, walks tall as the trees
She been there before, she'll never give in
She'll be gone tomorrow like the silent breeze

The question is not, "Does love exist?"
But when she leaves, where she goes?
I got the feelin' she don't know either
Wait like the wind, watch where she blows

~© Van Halen, excerpted lyrics~

In This Twilight

Watch the sun,
as it crawls across a final time
and it feels like,
like it was a friend.
It is watching us,
and the world we set on fire.
Do you wonder,
if it feels the same?

~© NIN, excerpted lyrics~

The Silent River

You and I can turn and look

at the silent river and wait. We know

the current is there, hidden; and there

are comings and goings from miles away

that hold the stillness exactly before us.

What the river says, that is what I say.

Live Forever

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I'd like to be
Now is not the time to cry
Now's the time to find out why
I think you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

~© Oasis, excerpted lyrics~

Sugar Magnolia

Sugar magnolia
Ringin' that blue bell
Caught up in sunlight
Come on out singing
I'll walk you in the sunshine
Come on honey, come along with me

Sometimes when the cuckoo's crying
When the moon is halfway down
Sometimes when the night is dying
I take me out and I wander round
I wander round

Sunshine daydream
Walkin through the tall trees
Going where the wind goes
Blooming like a red rose
Breathing more freely
Light out, singing
I'll walk you in the morning sunshine
Sunshine daydream
Walk you in the sunshine

~© Grateful Dead, excerpted lyrics~
