Separate Paths

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:26 pm

that subtle inclination

dire in the past

where tears rage



Only wanting that hope



yet too many ghosts jeer

in haunting glee



shattered like glass



those reflections

cold to the touch



bitter...

hardened....

jaded....



knowing that what was meant to be

somehow

no longer exists

for you and me



we walk our separate paths





and in that

lessons are learned

Certain People

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:28 pm

Certain people
wonder why I get so passionate
about things like
the homeless,
the poor,
the disadvantaged

yet those same people want to call
certain American programs akin to communism,
don't they know the difference
between communism and socialism?
didn't Jesus go out of his way to help
the poor, the sick, the handicapped?
didn't Jesus say
help your brother as if he
were your own family?
where's the compassion in this world today?
where's the kindness that's needed?
where's the love that's wanted?
where's the wisdom that Jesus taught?
and where's the common sense that we need within our lives?

does someone need to show that reflection
of what we are...
instead of what we pretend to be?
or does the truth need to slap us in the face
to make us realize that we're only wearing masks
within the real world

Ask yourself
and think about
what's really needed
to survive

Eclectic Memories

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:30 pm

to touch
that which
becomes unexpected
that recollection
where eons
pass by and smile
eclectic memories
hanging on
by a moment
varied in
imagination
where
nothing seems to make sense
but yet
logic
remains
on a fine wire
revealing
something
brand new

Wolf Vs Man

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:40 pm

snarling
Howling
growling
wolves
prime on the hunt
the call of the night
surviving on what they can in nature
not always a friend to man
mainly misunderstood by man
Why?
assumptions made
man encroaches in wild habitat
wolf adapts
whether mans wants him to or not
so man fears
what you fear you have tendency to kill
generally without learning why
But then isn't that always the case?
Maybe he should

Wild Woods

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:57 pm

wild woods
raging within that wilderness
where life emerges

a breeze
flows through my hair

and somehow
it energies me

Why?

maybe I feel
the spirits
that live here

birds chattering
amongst themselves

conversations
understood only
by themselves

yes we still
feel their presence

and we honor you

Current Of Time

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 6:59 pm

Serenaded
within that whisper
where echoes touch
in the wind

clouds reach
in the horizon

rainbows found
just beyond the rain

fingers of fog
reach where it can

and in the calm
a smile finds
what it needs

where a current of time
celebrates that simple
memory

Sandstone Reaches

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:01 pm

Sandstone reaches
found on the horizon
where Anasazi spirits roam
and if one listens
wisdom can be heard
drum beats sound in the sunset
southwest mountains
and deserts
sacred spirits rise
where horizons reach to the sun
watch for the wind
new paths
where in one looks
truth is somehow found
paths of the soul
whispers
in that value of silence
reach into the clouds
and find what you can

Day Dreams

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:03 pm

day dreams

held past that imaginary line

whispers that somehow speaks to one

rivulets of memories

pouring like a river

embracing what will be



glistening glimmerings

eternal findings

illuminations

risen past that knowledge



currents of changes

promised within that beginning

bearings of miracles

held in simple pleasure



resonance in answers

where passion

finds a revelation in truth

Desire Found

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:04 pm

desire found

in that completion

where your eyes

smile



I smell the vanilla

in your perfume



I taste your kiss



your tongue encircles mine



I feel your desire

as we complete our needs



I feel your arms





rhythms touch

in your laughter



circles sing within our hearts



and yet we find what we need

waking up in each others arms

in the morning

Water Flowing

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:06 pm

water flowing

starting with a trickle



then later comes a small steam

amongst the hillside



then a steam runs into another stream

clay red

like blood



stream finally meets

a river

on the edge of a canyon



on where it begins its journey

to meet other rivers



and onward they flow

through the desert

through the forest

through the plains



onto the delta

where it meets the gulf



and finally the ocean

Billowing Clouds

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:10 pm

Billowing clouds
rising into the horizon
where they fold into layers of grey

listen
can you hear the thunder
in the distance?

and then
here comes the rain

welcomed by the parched earth
which hasn't seem a drop
in months

finally one can quench
their thirst

but somehow
that's life for ya

Nature At Her Best

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:12 pm

sandstone
blood red in the canyons
tall sage brush
full in bloom
white tailed deer
in the edge of the aspen
coyotes yipping on the horizon
the Green river or The Colorado
flowing full in the springtime
maybe a herd of antelope
in the distance
all one has to do is look
to find nature
at her best
sandstone cliffs
where eagles soar
old Anasazi ruins
where a people once lived
and if you look
maybe you'll find an arrowhead or two
if you keep walking on an old trail
you'll see
prehistoric dinosaur tracks
and in the distance
just after the rain
a beautiful rainbow
no telling what you'll find
if you keep your eyes open

Eternal Breath

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:14 pm

Those southern winds
with that subtle train of thought
midnight sun
held in a whisper

where if by chance
memories flow
and dance
celebrated in that crux of time

Can you hear that simple call
where in those moments
seasons smile
within those wisps
evoked howls
sing by a light of the moon

eternal breath
finds what it needs
in currents
of echoes
gurgling within the laughter

Footprints Of The Past

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:15 pm

Granite dreams
held beside sandstone arches
where quartz glimmers
find that rhythm in nature
where prehistoric footprints
rise from the past
and petrified wood
remains from prehistoric forests
that rages
years ago

wind and water
shape stone of the mountains
that had arisen
eons ago

the divide of
the Rocky Mountains
smile in the
long horizon

and what was
remains in the soil
long ago

Circles Of Seasons

Post by carndo » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:16 pm

Settled through that
honored wind
where a crisp breeze
finds a memory
sheltered in a heart of time

Could it be
through that whisper
somehow we find a purity?

where answers flow
like honey
within the spring

those circles of seasons
walk softly

and the wisdom of nature
reveals
all her secrets

those rhythms
carry one away
in a simple simplicity
