starry night
the Ferris wheel's engine
softly idling

The Ferris Wheel Of Life

(A collab write with Kayte, a fellow poet)

We're going to ride the Ferris Wheel of Life
And when it gets to the top,
We'll review each of the blessings we've received.
They never seem to stop!

Round and round we go
never stopping, never wondering
our life's struggle has it's beginning
it will always have it's ending

Along our way we've found laughter,
love and happiness, freely given by
Earth Angels we call 'Friends.' -
From them we find courage to ride
Life's Ferris Wheel time and again.

We have our ups and downs
And fears for the future in our early rise
Our aching knees we take in stride
We have a God that heals and provides
For this we trust in faith and give thanks

As long as there's beauty in the sunrise,
The sound of laughter at a sweet surprise
A child reaching for our hands to hold
The ride on Life's Ferris Wheel, we'll savor
Just knowing the blessings of God's favor,
Our hearts will be happy and we'll never grow old!

The Wheel

Some people say lifes like a merry-go-round
I think its more like a ferris wheel
cause sometimes youre up, sometimes youre down
Sometimes you just dont know what to feel
And just when you think youve got the game figured out
And you say youve had enough
The mysterious mad man with his hand on the lever
Dont seem to never ever want to let you off
You cant get off this wheel of karma
You cant stop the hands of time
Now I have a friend, I might have a few
Sometimes I think they just dont care
But I think sometimes they think the same thing of me, yeah
You might say weve got a problem there
You know we all got this habit
We like to talk too much
And that always tends to slow you down
But we never change direction
We just keep going round and round and round and round
And let me off this wheel of karma
Let me stop the hands of time
Seems like Ive been around so many places
And I must have learned a lot of things
And although I aint yet come up with a so-called answer
At least I think I finally learned how to sing
And theres just a few things I aint got sorted out
Sometimes they make my brain get sore
Like if kids were left of all devices
Would they ever come up with a thing like war
Let us off this wheel of karma
Let us stop the hands of time

I see nothing in space as promising as the view from a Ferris wheel.

I did put on weight for the last half of the film, but the Ferris wheel scene was shot with a harness on me so that if I fell I wouldn't fall all the way.

A Boat

O beautiful
was the werewolf
in his evil forest.
We took him
to the carnival
and he started
crying
when he saw
the Ferris wheel.
Electric
green and red tears
flowed down
his furry cheeks.
He looked
like a boat
out on the dark
water.

Nia Long

They have the big ferris wheel and we've been out of town for two months, so he just was like, 'Mommy I want to go to Toys R Us and I don't care if you have a movie coming out and all that.' He was just being a kid. But I had to allow him to have that moment.

Cotton cany kisses

Mixed in taste
is a touch of Peach Brandy
and kisses flavored
like cotton candy
with panoramic views
in luminescent hues
from atop a Ferris Wheel.

Calliopes made
the Monkeys dance
while Pipers played
and Poodles pranced
pleasured feelings grew
which upon I drew
this goodness I did feel

Carnival Town

Round 'n' round
Carousel
Has got you under its spell
Moving so fast...but
Going nowhere
Up 'n' down
Ferris wheel
Tell me how does it feel
To be so high...
Looking down here
Is it lonely?
Lonely
Lonely
Did the clown
Make you smile
He was only your fool for a while
Now he's gone back home
And left you wandering there
Is it lonely?
Lonely
Lonely

Slider

Show me how to get home
Throw me like a stone
Show me how to get home
You love to watch me crawl
Home, just get me home, home, home
Stoned, cause I feel so stoned, oh no
Went to church one day
Repent my evil ways
I heard a voice call down
His words of wisdom sang
Home, just get me home, home, home
Stoned, cause I feel so stoned, oh no
Got this feeling inside my head
I'm spinning out of my ferris wheel red
Feels like home, it feels like home...

Man of the House

It was a misunderstanding.
I got into bed, made love
with the woman I found there,
called her honey, mowed the lawn,
had three children, painted
the house twice, fixed the furnace,
overcame an addiction to blue pills,
read Spinoza every night
without once meeting his God,
buried one child, ate my share
of Jell-o and meatloaf,
went away for nine hours a day
and came home hoarding my silence,
built a ferris wheel in my mind,
bolt by bolt, then it broke
just as it spun me to the top.
Turns out I live next door.

Tennessee Square

Red ribbons hang in a tennessee square
Old people laughing and singing and dancing down there
Id like to join them, I got no money to spare
So I sit here and watch from the porch
Drinkin whiskey in granddaddys chair.
Ferris wheel lights look like pictures Id seen in a book somewhere
Vacant parking lots across the street remind me Im going nowhere
Id like to join em, I got no money to spare
So I sit here and I watch from the porch
Drinkin whiskey in granddaddys chair
Its difficult to go on knowing youre out there somewhere
Vacant parking lots across the street remind me Im going nowhere.

What A Day Yesterday Was

Looking through these old photographs
Dont they bring some good memories back
Some of them make us laugh
And some make us cry
Im glad weve kept all of these souvenirs
To prove that our love was here
Look at how happy we were
Pictures dont lie
(chorus)
If forever should end today
And theres no tomorrow for us
What a day yesterday was
Heres one of us with you calm and cool
But look at me acting a fool
And heres one of us on the ferris wheel
At the fair
Hey, havent we had some fun
The best may be yet to come
We may have a hundred years
Still left to share
But...
(chorus)
Lets close this book of photographs
And lets turn out the lights
And love for the moment
As if it were the last
(chorus)

Left No Evidence

Out of time and no one noticed
Rubbing up a different way
Out of step but still in focus things to say
Kicking out the social pressure
Holding on to what you feel
Being you was never easy
Sliding off the the ferris wheel
Small was beautiful to you
Things are on a micro scale
Turned your back on power and glory
Yours was such a personal tale
Dancing to a different step now
Choose youre beats along the way
Nothing arrives at youre house packaged
No glittery wrap to throw away
Cutting different shapes and sizes
Bringing tomorrow into today
No one noticed you as you snuck in the sideline and talked in a quiet way
No bullshit no theatrics no pretence and left no evidence
You left no evidence
You left no evidence

A Dance In Circles

you must have seen how life is painted
by one great artist

a dance in circle
where we hold our hands and
then we keep
revolving around
the axis that we
ourselves form

a merry-go-round on this side
a ferris wheel going up

arm to arm and face to face
we like it
each of us feeling like a ring
without an end without a beginning

we project to the very least
our sense of love for something that is eternal

we say we are not meant just to be here
we are meant for something higher

not rectangular, no longer circular
but something else, we even say this

is something felt and yet unspeakable
something so near us and yet still so far

like how we see the stars as tiny specks
so far away and yet so true and real

A Belief Of The Merry Go Round

it is another beginning
we do not know exactly where we shall mark it

this is a ring
a circle a sphere
turning and turning
round and round
in ecstasy
and pain

there is no end
we do not exactly know where we shall mark it

this is a ball
round and bouncing

this is the Ferris wheel
the May pole

this is another ride for another year
merry, merry, merry go round

how shall we feel it?
when we are too preoccupied
with what we are
and what shall we become?

this is the circle of love
and hate and love and hate
a plain of concern
and indifference

these are dances of many lifetimes
and cycles and repetitions

i see a face and make love with a body
i live in a house and walk on a path

who are you now? what place is this?
and why are we here?

Unerasable

Sometimes life is a slow motion
mugging
where I often wipe blood
from my brow
and I say;
so.

Sometimes I lose in love
where the pain's so bad..
but the next day
or at some point
I say
so?

I have wasted money;
spent frivolously
but I got over it
and moved on.

There are evil people
in the world
who know how to hurt
and manipulate beyond
what I thought possible;

but I vow not to lose my innocence
and my faith to cynicism.

If life's Ferris Wheel turns
down
I will wait
for the inevitable
upward ride
for with patience
it will surely come.

I may have Hope itself
crash 70 miles an hour
into a brick wall
but I,
the driver,
will emerge
dust off;
and go for yet another ride.

Courage is everyday life
where we emerge against the
odds;
with a feint
Unerasable Smile.

Carnival In Kenora

Twinkle, twinkle what a pity
All alone on such a pretty night
With enchantment on your side.
Popcorn, popcorn, cotton candy,
Soft voice whispers,
This can all be right
If youll come and share a ride.
Carnival in kenora!
I let him take me for a ride
On a giant ferris wheel.
Up in the neon sky
Or far from the barkers cry
One kiss can sometimes
Make you feel like a
Spinning ferris wheel.
All the tents are taken down now;
All thats left is scuffled ground now;
Still the magic echoes in the sand.
Popcorn, popcorn, cotton candy,
Now a stranger takes my hand,
We smile and the magic understands.
Carnival in kenora!
I let him take me for a ride
On a giant ferris wheel.
Up in the neon sky
Or far from the barkers cry
One kiss can sometimes
Make you feel like a
Spinning ferris wheel

The Fair Is Moving On

All the rides are over and done
It's late and no prizes are left to be won
The rides are closed, it's the end of the day
The horses are moving away
Yes the fair's moving on
And I'll soon be gone
Remember the love that we've known
Yes the fair's moving on
But I won't leave you long
It's the last time you'll be on your own
The music has ended, the carousel's still
The horses in boxes with the big Ferris wheel
The canvass and glitter are safely on board
The trailers will soon hit the road
Yes the fair's moving on
And I'll soon be gone
Remember the love that we had
Yes the fair's moving on
But I won't leave you long
I'm coming back so please don't be sad
At dawn I'll be gone but I'll soon return
Till then the fair's moving on
Till then the fair's moving on
Till then the fair's moving on
Till then the fair's moving on

The Fairs Moving On

(words & music by fletcher - flett)
All the rides are over and done
Its late and no prizes are left to be won
The rides are closed, its the end of the day
The horses are moving away
Yes the fairs moving on
And Ill soon be gone
Remember the love that weve known
Yes the fairs moving on
But I wont leave you long
Its the last time youll be on your own
The music has ended, the carousels still
The horses in boxes with the big ferris wheel
The canvass and glitter are safely on board
The trailers will soon hit the road
Yes the fairs moving on
And Ill soon be gone
Remember the love that we had
Yes the fairs moving on
But I wont leave you long
Im coming back so please dont be sad
At dawn Ill be gone but Ill soon return
Till then the fairs moving on
Till then the fairs moving on
Till then the fairs moving on
Till then the fairs moving on

Rising So Low As If Falling From The Sky

Rising so low as if falling from the sky
the light of the silver moon is so bright
that it blots out stars, it looks as if
it is part of the high hill

gleams upon the snow capped peaks,
leaving them sparkling,
creates another kind of world
and your eyes catch me.

Sometimes there are sparkling stars
in your glance that turns my heart
crazily like a Ferris wheel
making it spin almost out of control

as if there are elemental forces
that are at you disposal
with the power of wind,
of rain, thunder and furious cyclone

or at other times the sieving tranquil rain
that brings refreshment and joy to the heart,
your eyes become the only stars shining
at me in this dark night with a own sheer light

and you really know me, know the road
that for years I have been travelling on
which always returns back to you,
even if it leads away from everything.
