Who Knows Where In This Impossible Life

WHO KNOWS WHERE IN THIS IMPOSSIBLE LIFE

Who knows where in this impossible life
Another poem may come from?
And why in this endless mixture of meaning and meaninglessness,
Should come suddenly
A flash of Beauty -
Which forever reminds
That we are from God,
And returning to God,
And never to be in our end without God-
And all that we are is that transition
From God to God,
Which we will never understand-
We being only
Small and human and lost and sad,
And not and never God at all.

Shortie 5: Bondage

i do not ask you to
set me free from the
bondage that i always
revere, these chains that
i love, that i worship,
these golden chains of
my dreams, that i still
wish may come true.

A Child's Ache

Sunlight streamed into my eyes
Out of the warm dwelling place- the womb
Into breath of the human lamb
A child.

A mind of purity and innocence
A heart of wonderment
A soul of love.

The standards we set as a child
Surprises us when we are adults
We demand lots of loving attention
We are little judges who cry
when things are done wrong
We can understand God
and that we can do anything.
So does growing up, mean,
discovering ourselves as limiting?
We little heart people
With faith inspired ideas

Me & Bobby Mc Gee

Demo (take 5) 20 07 1970
S130 is not on. not that i'm playin' that great but still in all i oughta be able to hear it, y'know what i mean ?
Are you hearing it now ?
No. now. it's too loud. i can't play that good. am i havin' some of that texas accent back ?
I hope so.
But i always sound like this, man, i hear myself on tape i always sound like this.
Take 5.
God! shall i start that way ? ready ?
Over to you baby.
Busted flat in baton rouge, waiting for a train
And i's feelin' nearly as faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
It rode us all the way in to new orleans.
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
An' i's playin' soft while bobby sang the blues, yeah.
Windshield wipers slapping time, i was holding bobby's hand in mine,
We sang every song that driver knew.
Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free.
Yeah, an' feeling good was easy, lord, bobby sang the blues,

Raising A Man

Lets gather round the supper table,
And tell the boy hes just as able
To die with his boots untied
Evenings come, lets settle down
And sing one more song without a frown
Sing for, sing for our voices
And more, sing for our choices,
Just dont lie, lie, lie, lie, lie...
Love must stand when raising a man... raising a man...
To teach him direction and the best that he can
And lesson one, you will run,
Sink into your chair with fright
A baby boy is born today
Where comes he from, where will he play?
Will he run or will he stand?
Now I lay him down to sleep
A state of mind, his soul will keep.
I give him words, words to say
That he might love, love everyday
Just dont lie, lie, lie, lie, lie...

Hans Christian Andersen

N. T. Bruun

Ei hver en Fugl i Skovens Hal
Kan synge som en Nattergal;
Du qviddred' tidt: ei blot til Lyst,
Hvad der fandt Vei til mangt et Bryst.

A Papillon

a dog with
butterfly ears
who wants
more to
stay inside
the house

no chicks
