Poem:

.

there is this place I call never-the-less
to all of my friends I give free access
the place is filled with excuses galore
who could wish for anything more

the place is a series of rooms, nooks and crannies
there is an cool pond to keep fire from the fannies
there is a looking glass that can see future trouble
it has yet to learn how to pick the daily double

make yourself fit using the many trick mirrors
there are free warm hugs when you get the shivers
the ceiling is made from the trees of knowledge and life
a picture of Heavens peace when man gives up strife

come visit, we’ll have lunch and go exploring
we’ll make a plan for man his faith restoring
regardless, at any rate, we can all be the critic
all the same, in any event, I’ll be there in spirit

never-the-less, we can all do it anyhow, God willing
never-the-less, we’ll never do it anyway, fates fulfilling

Aquarius

002

Aquarius,

I was born under the sign of the water bearer

and true to my nature (my sign element is air)

fresh air, sunshine and water are all I need to be happy.

Pictured, my latest patio project, pond with no fish,

plants only, if I can keep them alive.

horoscope is real

sun, moon, stars align with me

science can’t keep up

the Creators vital gift

Questions
.

listening to the roar of the oceans waves
meditating on the meaning of life
contemplating the vastness of the sky
realizing how insignificant we all are

aware of the beaded drops of sweat on the brow
Ptolemy predicts the nuances of our personalities
but was he yet aware of nurture and nature and
are we the souls the Great Creator wants us to be

skipping stones on the still calm lake
after man has gone, will time continue on
pondering the prospects for this afternoon
wants and needs are the discussion de jour

springs melting snow creates the babbling brook
some are aware of the present, some simply do not care
some create institutions to justify their existence
others want instant gratification or are they mindless,

water, water everywhere rhymed the ancient mariner
Aquarius rules for his thirty degrees and no more
the feeble mind attempts to explain the value of
the elements: earth, wind, fire, water and void

what can be done to make this world a better place
where would we be without water ???
