~HAIKU XXlX ~

When everyone shares,
The portions get smaller but
Sweeter and sweeter.

Sweeter and sweeter
How love continues to grow
As the years go by ...

As the years go by,
We surely gain more age and
Hopefully wisdom

Hopefully wisdom
rises with experience
From both good and bad

From both good and bad
Ideas, we mold our lives
There's no set pattern

There's no set pattern
nor any binding restraint
For a free spirit ...

For a free spirit
Anything is possible.
Think it then do it.

Think it then do it
Don't be a knot on a log
Let's see some action ...!

Let's see some action
Use it or lose it my friend.
Things do atrophy.

Things do atrophy
but nay, not our vital force
The Spirit within ...

The Spirit within
Peeks out through everyone's eyes.
You need to look close.

You need to look close
within your own heart and soul
Before judging folks

Before judging folks
Make sure your own hands are clean
As the driven snow

As the driven snow
sweeps high across the mountains
Soft white silence falls ...

Soft white silence falls
Spreading a blanket over
War's ugly, dark face.

War's ugly, dark face
lurks in evil aggression
'Midst greed and power

'Midst greed and power
A little love can show through.
Evil is not pure.

Evil is not pure
It's vile, profane dimensions
Imprisons lost souls

Imprisons lost souls
And frees personal demons ---
A tightly closed mind

A tightly closed mind
would be wonderful to lose
Find enlightenment ...!

Find enlightenment
Consider the butterfly --
Once a lowly worm

Once a lowly worm
Found a magic toad's abode
Down 'round Thibodaux

Down 'round Tibodaux
Where da bayou run so slow
Da "mud bugs" sho' do grow

Da "mud bugs" sho' do grow
shy 'round a hungry Cajun
Sha', dey runnin' scared

Sha', dey runnin' scared
On their two legs or on four.
Here comes more progress.

Here comes more progress
The good, bad and the ugly
Takes a heavy toll

Takes a heavy toll
And empties my coin purses --
Those vending machines

Those vending machines
often leave you frustrated
and empty handed

And empty handed
I wander the dirty streets
With no place to rest.

With no place to rest
and no time to be wasted
Adventure is mine!
