Drowning
Reaching up
Looking for air
Needing help to survive
Wondering what is going on
Hoping for someone’s hand
Waving to live
Stretching far
Life

Drowning
Searching everywhere
Where is love?
Trying to find honesty
Wondering where life will lead
Keeping hope alive
Staying positive
Life

Sadje hosts What do you see and you can find it here

They splashed in the turbulent waters and if Adam hadn’t known already that they were good swimmers, he would have feared for the lives of his dogs. He had named them Rain and Salt because, from the moment he brought them home, they had bounded into the lake behind his house within minutes of arriving. Now, in this hidden gem of a watering hole, he couldn’t keep them out. Adam knew he would have to wait until both dogs had tired themselves out before heading back to the car.

Squid vs. Man: Compilation 06/13/2022

Once upon a time
while a man sat by his boat
his wife, she and her book,
read in a tent, inset in her coat

Little did they know
there’s a squid up by the boat
With slimy tentacles
That seemed like they could float

Squid didn’t want to filch
and end this silly game
he wouldn’t be the champion
He wanted all the fame

The man he sat and ate
a bowl of cereal on his dock
listening for the crackling
of rice crispies as they popped.

The man saw a big splash
and the squid swam away fast
knowing that the volume
of the water wouldn’t last.

The water people came
and emptied out the lake
they had to find the squid
He’s gross for heaven’s sake!

Beneath the bows of the old elm trees
a road lies barren, an unused pass
Where it leads is a mystery
Like drops of dew on a looking glass
Follow close and you might find
the answers that you seek
But stray away in the thicket’s patch
And life’s long journey will be weak.
forgive yourself for your mistakes
for those were meant to be made
Look ahead down the long dark path
and your sorrow starts to fade
Keep walking here and do not fear
what is lying there in wait
for only you control yourself
your choices made by fate

A New Life

Looking back now he saw an old man
starting his life, on the road, in a van
He travelled along, music playing out loud
Humoring walkers, pleasing a crowd
Along his long trip, he fell and he slid
Making the best of all that he did
When suddenly he knew there’s no time like now
to take a bull by the horns, but he didn’t know how
So he asked his dear wife to be honest with him
And say how he did, and she looked at him grim
She smiled and said that he’s getting too old
People wanted a young man, brazen and bold
They no longer enjoyed this man of old age
It was time to recede, get off of the stage
He kissed his dear wife and held her to him
then they walked hand in hand, a new life to begin.

A Man

You only see my color
not my insides, not my brain
I pray that you will listen
but my praying is in vain
I’m worth more than you give me
I’m worth more than you get
I’m just another person
How could you forget?
When God put me before him
I was a person with a heart
But now that he’s not here
I’ve had to find a place to start
For God is with us always
And it was in his plan
To make us all remember
It’s not the color, it’s the man.

New Beginnings

I shed the darkness and look for the light

I hope for the brightness of you

I hand my past over to clear a path

My growing love for you will ensue.

Pure Evil

The streets are vacant
the people are gone
the news is reporting
the wars still goes on
the people will suffer
Putin is pure evil
the world wants to stop
this man-made devil.

He seemed to sip his wine with grace
gazing at that beautiful face
Wondering how fate could work this way
Thinking that she could make his day
Courage would be just what he needs
Perhaps the liquor would plant those seeds
For now he’d sip and take in her beauty
Hoping someday he would be her cutie.
