Flower or Glass of Water

If you have a gun and hurt someone in America,
you gain fame and notoriety,
they may make a movie about you called
the adventures of Bonnie and Clyde;

If you give someone a flower or glass of water
you will be overlooked like a dusty book
on a library shelf;
give someone a flower or glass of water, nonetheless,
it is a kindness that can transform the world.

A Glass Of Water Please

and so the story wants to end itself with a
glass of water.

those who cry after always need
a glass of water.

those whose hearts are broken
those who sob
those who close the window of the niche
those who have nightmares
those who wake up at 3 o'clock in the morning
those who sit on bed and cannot sleep back
always go to the kitchen
open the refrigerator
get a glass and splash
a cold glass of water

this time, i am asking for a glass of water
for i could be
all of the above or you could be one of those
i have described

but who knows we are not one of those
who knows
we are but just anyone who is normally thirsty
and with nothing to ask
simply ask
for a glass of cold water.

and cheerfully, we do not forget to say
please....

Jump In The Water and Get Wet

Fearing to experience life invites indecision.
Many who are taught to do things right...
Just might find themselves debating,
Over choices they prefer and like...
to impress and appease others to please.

Jump in the water and get wet.
Establish a list of those regrettable moments.
How else will one know a growth process is known?
Affecting directly one's emotions.
And involving a forward motion.

Jump in the water and get wet.
At least from the doing of it...
There will be a lesson learned to be remembered,
Never to forget.

'But...
I can not swim.'

You see!
I told you.
Something done one does,
Will always aid in the growing process.

'But...
I'm telling you,
Seriously...
I can't swim.'

Well...
I am hopeful of your ability,
To make attempts.
To teach you requires the kind of patience,
Today, I just don't have.

'But...
I am drowning! '

From who's perspective?

Water and Fire - Triolet

Water and fire oppose each other;
Sing the transmutation song
Air flows like water; it's another
Water and fire oppose each other,
And Earth's our gentle-giant mother,
Matter sings it's song life-long
Water and fire oppose each other;
Sing the transmutation song.

Friendship With A Stone

the stone is dry
the sun ripped off
what moisture life
it has today,

i take a glass of
water and wet it

the stone begins
to wake up and
breathe

i take its breathe
inside my lungs
i watch it become
alive in my thoughts
we begin
talking about
a previous life

story to story
until it is dark

the stone and i
and the moon
above us

we are one family now
one misery less

Walking and Talking on the Edge-(somnambulism and somniloquence)

1) Walking and Talking on the edge
This way, that way, out of the way
Sleeping Somna' walking semieyed
Walking and Talking on the edge

Sleeping Somni' talking aloud
'Wait, wait, I too shall join'
Walking and Talking on the edge
This way, that way, out of the way

2) Walking and Talking on the edge
This way, that way, out of the way
Somna' semi- fell from upstairs
Walking and Talking on the edge

Talking Somni' fell from the cot
Two friends ended in a strange way
Walking and Talking on the edge
This way, that way, out of the way

Water and Me

swimming is the like the moon and the sun for me
the water's smooth fingers of bubbles dance on my summer tanned skin
the slashes of the water ring in my ear
the smell of chlorine awakens my soul
the water likes like a newly ice covered pound in the harsh winter weather but can quickly change with one move creating a wave of life braking all peace
the blue color so strong that no one can brake it's bond of beauty
so powerful it can eat though rock and tackle you with one wave but soft enough to wash a new born’s skin to a shin
my body cuts though the water like knife on ripe fruit
the main part of life
we live on the water and water lives in us
swimming for me is like the sun and the moon

Provide water and air which is clean and pure

Water
Is the most important
Need of life
The miracle liquid
Is scarce and polluted
Specially in the villages
The poor and needy
Are force to drink it in plenty
Science and technology
Is being used more and more
By all the countries
Underdeveloped nations
In their urge
To become developed
Use resources
In an unbalanced manner
Nobody bothers
About the poor villagers
Industries of rich and powerful
Pollute environment and soil
Toxifying the water underneath
With chemicals like chlorine
Rivers and lakes too face their ire
Poor people forced to drink
The same water
Causing diseases
In the poor and needy
What was provided by god?
Free of cost, is now bought
Enormous profits are earned
In the name of water,
Pure and healthy
I ask everybody
To wake and rise
Force the rulers
To use their might
Provide water and air
Which is clean and pure
Develop water purifiers
Cheap and handy
Distribute them to the needy
Save poor people from
Disease and dying

Water and Spirit

A son does what he sees and,
A daughter does what see see too;
For this world do go around us to learn always.
At the seventh hour,
At the moving of the water,
Of the scraps that remained after the work;
Begotten of water and spirit for the wind to blow where it will,
And others born of the flesh like a keeper who gets the ball.

Born of the spirit,
A player scores a goal!
Rivers of living waters like clay with the spittle;
He is of age and she is of age too,
But a man's mind is full of darkness.

Of ears to hear,
Of eyes to see and,
Of a nose to smell with too;
But the measure you give is the measure you get.

When the water moves,
The spirit gives life;
Like heavenly bodies and earthly things,
But deep inside the well is the darkeness of death.

The bridegroom gets the bride and,
The light of life is for us all to share;
Like water and spirit on the muse of one's birth.
I came into to share my mind,
You came into life to play your part,
For this world is like the water and the spirit around us;
But the wind blows to where it will.

Surrealistic

lip glossed
lip of glass
cold water
and a dream
your lips
to my lips
a mist by
the window
the widow
dreams at
noonday.

Nightmares

intense fear
horror
this distress of the night
intense
a plague of demons
in my bed

you wake up
and shake with this chill
you need a glass of water
and a prayer

this negative side
of dreams

and feelings
just feelings

why fear feelings?

What Do I Really Need?

upon a dining table
i too, ask myself,

what do i really need?

one fried dried fish
a cup of steamed brown rice
a pinch of salt
five drops of coconut vinegar

a glass of water

and then the much needed
rest for the night

& with you
my bare hands

I Kinda Figured It All Out By Myself

'Daddy...
When I called for you last night,
To bring me a glass of water.
And you were moaning.
And mommy was calling God.
I yelled even louder!
But you didn't hear me!
And I waited for God to bring me water!
But He didn't do the job! '

What are you saying, young man?

'Nothing daddy.
I kinda figured it all out by myself! '

Why Are We Talking About It

It's possible for you to achieve success.
I never said that it wasn't.

This is what I said...
You will have to talk less about the process,
And feel you can achieve success.
Knowing it has and will be accomplished.
And I can not interpret your success for you.

'You did not say that.'

Do you feel it?

'Yes.'

Then 'why' are we talking about it.
I can not feel it for you.

The Only Way To Understand What We Have Been Talking About...

let me write about peace then.

the irony is that peace has no use of words,
like silence,

when you utter it, it is not there anymore.

let me paint peace then, ah, the very sound of the brush disturbs it,
the way we choose the color, creates an argument

let me have a camera and take a picture of peace,
disregard the click and the flash

just imagine it,

early dawn, a fisherman casts his net on a noiseless sea
all the fish have gone to the other side of the island.

the earlier you accept that you have been rightfully abandoned
the easier is it to understand what we have been talking about.

Passing The Inkblot Test

a butterfly is a butterfly
is a butterfly

and batman is batman
and the clown is nothing but a clown

do not make the bat fly
do not let the clown splash in melting butter

and just be the man that you are
stay there do not float in air

it is just an ink that blots in its reflection
it is just a piece of paper on your hand
it is just stationery

do not give movements where movements are not there
always remember newton

an object at rest will always be at rest
and an object in motion will always be in motion

unless acted upon by an unequal and opposite force.
stay calm, now take your glass of water and then
swallow your medicine.

how can you ever faill this test again?

Unheard Music

Unheard Music (Mozart)

The fingers on my left hand move all by themselves
like they are playing piano that produces music
I cannot hear. I watch my fingers play but it makes no
sense so I try to stop by holding them still with my
right hand’s fingers. So I sit like a vicar contemplating
the Sunday sermon, a mild one who hasn’t an arsenal
of fire and brimstone speeches, but would rather talk
about the coming spring. My wife brings me a glass of
water and a pill, fingers rest, but I would liked to have
heard the music they played, for all I know it could
have been music brought to me in a dream by Mozart
who died so young that he can’t believe it yet, and
tries trough, me to play his latest masterpiece.

That's What I'm Talking About

Turn on the radio, turn on my T.V
They're talking bout war They're talking bout peace
Talking bout you talking bout me
The way we ought to act the way we ought to be
They talk about stars and the latest syles
They don't talk about much that seem worthwile Meanwhile..
(Chorus:)
Me and my baby slip under the covers
Get away from the world and whatever other stuff is
Going on and start to working on
A little heart to heart mouth to mouth
Thats what I'm talking about
All of our neighbors and most of our friends
They talk about Tiger who's out and who's in
American Idol and who's gonna win
They talk about politics with their own little spin
Let'em have their opinions, let'em speak their minds
Let'em talk about the weather cause come rain or shine
(Chorus)

Unspoken 2

there are letters where some stains
still stick, like some fading drops
of water color on a very clear
sheet of perfumed paper

you have read them not just once
but over and over
for years and years

you still cry. You blame your mother
whose genes are sentimental
about some broken hearts

you check the trunk again
and open a bundle of papers
sensing those perfumed ones

a dry petal of a rose
black bold strokes of
a pen, some words that you
still want to read:

i will love you forever.

you are taken back to the time
when you were a smiling
lover beside her

along a boulevard
holding hands and talking
about sweet nothings

you hear the sound of
a boat leaving

and you see some
lights flickering


dissolving far away
from you
on a
black horizon.
