First verse by Dragonfly, next and every other
verse by Lady Bleaux.


Even the lonely
Can find comfort in Nature
All are related

All are related
whether you like it or not
even your in laws!

Even your in laws
Have a few good qualities
You have to look deep

You have to look deep
down many fathoms to find
treasures of the sea ...

Treasures of the sea
Swim or walk on the bottom
Lobster, fish and shrimp

Lobster, fish and shrimp
All play games beneath the sea
Heyy you can't catch me!

Heyy you can't catch me
But if you really want to
I can just fall down

I can just fall down
and wallow in self pity
or face life bravely

Or face life bravely
with sword drawn and flags flying
I'm tired already

I'm tired already
from all I've done in past years
But eager for more!

But eager for more
Snorting, chomping at the bit ..
Warhorse to the end

Warhorse to the end
Very strong hearted within
and free like the wind

And free like the wind
On my massive wings that bend
My soul on the mend

My soul on the mend
from all I've had to contend
It's great when I win!

It's great when I win
But it's the pits when I lose
Why do I compete

Why do I compete
One is drawn by the challenge
It piques our daring

It piques our daring
To try the unusual
Sailing strange seas

Sailing strange seas
Exploring their mysteries
on a wild night's breeze

On a wild night's breeze
A distant howl slowly fades ...
Our brother talking

Our brother talking
telling of ancient wisdom
From another realm

From another realm
Blessings overflow to us
Open your eyes

Open your eyes
Or else go totally blind
From tunnel vision ...

From tunnel vision
To the wide panoramic
We see what we want

We see what we want
Good or evil's ugliness
Reflecting our souls

Reflecting our souls
Through the windows of our eyes
No shades can hide them

No shades can hide them
revealed like darkened shadows
Aura of deceit

Aura of deceit
Hangs like a gray miasma
Around a liar

Around a liar
One lie leads to another
Convoluted maze ...

Convoluted maze
And very intricate web
Our place in nature

Our place in nature
is responsibility ...
Upholding balance

Upholding balance
Down with negativity
Fighting the good fight

Fighting the good fight
Using self endowed powers
With lion hearted strength

With lion hearted strength
And rabbit timidity
We greet the new day

We greet the new day
with highest expectations
Our hopes, dreams and schemes

Our hopes, dreams and schemes
Very important to us ...
Others have their own

Others have their own
druthers, racing at full speed
Passing their brothers!

Passing their brothers
In the "rat race" just makes one
A much better rat

A much better rat
can always outsmart the cat
Guile and quick thinking

Guile and quick thinking
Are good characteristics
If you're a con man

If you're a con man
you ply dark devious schemes
To the gullible

To the gullible
All fruit can made to be sweet
Here, bite this lemon

Here, bite this lemon
it matches your sour mood
Darkened displeasure

Darkened displeasure
Frowns and scowling faces cause
An upset stomach

An upset stomach
is often self induced by
A worrisome mind

A worrisome mind
Is like a thorn in the foot
A real aggravation

A real aggravation
Folks who complain all the time
The poor in spirit ...

The poor in spirit
Suck the joy out of living
Happiness vampire

Happiness vampire
lurks in darkened betrayal
Dispelled by sunlight ...

Dispelled by sunlight
The fog wept dewdrop tears as
It slowly vanished

It slowly vanished
the radiant glow of youth
Replaced by laugh lines ...

Replaced by laugh lines
That map the soul's happy paths
Baby fat is gone

Baby fat is gone
and a lean teen emerges
Like metamorphosis

Like metamorphosis
Changes the body, so do
Our thoughts change the mind

Our thoughts change the mind
Some minds really need changing
They're stuck in a rut ...

They're stuck in a rut
Without imagination,
That's where they'll stay

That's where they'll stay
locked in the heart forever
Memories of love ...

Memories of love
Like fish stories, get bigger
As the years go by

As the years go by
they begin to go faster
As we get slower ...

As we get slower
And take more time with things,
We get better

We get better
after each of life's lessons
Times of inner growth

Times of inner growth
Can stretch our awareness or
Expand our waistlines

Expand our waistlines
with careless over eating
Puts our lives at risk

Puts our lives at risk
And our thoughts in confusion
The madness called love

The madness called love
for some lasts but a moment
Ending all too soon ...

Ending all too soon
Our flashes of insight
Understanding life

Understanding life
the truly great enigma
Passes undefined ...

Passes undefined
Like kisses on the cheek or
Winks are frustrating

Winks are frustrating
and totally lost among
Smug humorless twits

Smug humorless twits
Are like summer mosquitoes
They're all around us

They're all around us
the modest and kind hearted
Angels unaware ...

Angels unaware
Of Evil done in His name
Protect us with love

Protect us with love
pleas of all little children
Tend them with kindness

Tend them with kindness
And things will grow well for you
Plants, friendships or kids

Plants, friendships or kids
need attentive nurturing
In order to thrive ...

In order to thrive
One must have peanut butter
Not by bread alone

Not by bread alone
does life stay interesting
It becomes boring

It becomes boring
When life is predictable
Give me surprises

Give me surprises
All wrapped in fluffy white clouds
Sprinkled with star dust
