Fire Light

This is no in-between or American dream
It’s the real things I find around
Not the people in cars or the cats at the bar
It’s the real things I find around
Castles of sand, there is no call or demand
Only you, the me, the we, the free are things I find around
Seeing moonbeams or friendly warm faces
Things that matter most are not technological, philosophical or logical
Things I find around
Simple Simple Simple Simple
Living in clips, fragments of snippets
Things I find around
The way you see it, the way it moves you, the way it hits you, the way it is
So simple its complex
Starts with a feeling then moves to your feet
The real things you’ll find around
Seeing people stand there and bob to the beat
Not gamers, nay-sayer’s, mismatchers, crap players
Just real things you’ll find around

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
