Every Journey Begins...Every journey begins with ignorance.Every Journey Begins...21 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You’re in your own little world.
Surrounded by secrets you didn’t know exist.
You’re surrounded by fools
Who know less than you.
And somehow, somehow, you’re different.
A stranger in a “black and white” world.
And when a fellow stranger comes along,
Your journey to find the grey world begins.
You’ll refuse at first,
But the grey world is so tempting
That you’ll find yourself accepting.
Amazement will occur,
Losses will take place
And you’ll surely be filled with despair.
But when it’s over,
You’ll go back to the black and white world grey,
And fill the world with many colors.

Poem for Day 061 – 20150302
All in the hands, reaching for you,
leading our dance, together with you,
guiding the moves across the floor
Step step rock step in unison,
and then spin you out for a twirl,
behind the back, done with no fear.
Hands speak louder than mere words,
this is our own language of motion,
with feet sharing in dialogue.
I could be blind, and still we move,
you and me, we've danced this before,
moves as a practiced perfection.
I'll push you away, pull you back,
twirl you around, both cross and front,
all in the hands, moved with our feet.
Avert the eyes, speak with the hands
So much has been said, nothing more,
as I dance with and you with me.

School, Tests and All the RestSchool, Tests and All the RestSchool, Tests and All the Rest20 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Schools, Tests, and All the Rest
All a game to see who’s best
Learning doesn’t really matter
To learn or earn grades. It’s about the latter
They say grades don’t matter. As long as you learn
Yet they scold you when your grades turn
Sure. Grades = College. College = Jobs
But you sacrifice fun, so you’ll only sob
So School, tests, and all the rest
Is for the material you should digest
Not the grades that paper addressed
Its about the joy and fun of the quest.
