I need water !

A traveler was stumbling through the desert, desperate for water, when he saw something far off in the distance.

Hoping to find water, he walked towards the image, only to find a little old peddler sitting at a card table with a bunch of neckties laid out.

The parched wanderer asked, “Please, I’m dying of thirst, can I have some water?”

The man replied, “I don’t have any water, but why don’t you buy a tie? Here’s one that goes nicely with your clothes.”

The desperate man shouted, “I don’t want a tie, you idiot, I need water!”

“OK, don’t buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, I’ll tell you that over that hill there, about 5 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, and they’ll give you all the water you want.”

The man thanked the peddler and walked away towards the hill and eventually disappeared out of sight. Three hours later he returned.

The man at the card table said, “I told you, about 5 miles over that hill. Couldn’t you find it?”

“I found it all right. But they wouldn’t let me in without a tie!”


Sometimes it’s really fun just to write simple traditional verse about love that expresses some thought or aspect in simple terms and an easy to understand style and tone that even the most unreading poetry reader can appreciate and enjoy.  If love didn’t have so many thoughts and aspects and shades and nuances (and meanings and issues!) about it, I guess it wouldn’t be the most written and talked about subject on the planet and in human history.  You think?  So here is a simple but inspirational and upbeat love poem to usher in the weekend and celebrate this lovely, love-filled POET’S DAY.  For as you must know–especially if you read my blog here–every Friday is POET’S DAY. 

You know, POET’S DAY: Piss On Everything Tomorrow’s Saturday!  Not the most elegant acronym.  But an accurate one! (:-D

Don’t feel all alone with your pain,
Eschewing sunlight for the rain;
Hearing darkness only spoken,
Sitting there with your heart broken.
No, put your little hand in mine,
For soon again the sun will shine!
Pain is something everyone shares,
So know that somewhere someone cares.
Then dry your tears and dry your eyes,
Love doesn’t always speak in lies!
For if you found love once before,
You know you can find it once more.
Doesn’t matter how love comes in,
Or even when it comes again,
Someone will love you–wait and see!
In fact…it could even be me.

A Perfect Day: Embrace the Intangible

Life is filled with both certainty and uncertainty.  Likewise, it is rife with what you know to be true and with what you doubt and cannot trust.  However, there are some things you cannot know through touch and sight and the other senses, at least not in terms of it being solid and having substance and material weight and form.  There are things you can know and feel through thought and emotion, but they hold no tangible dimension and cannot be boxed or jarred or carried inside one’s pocket.  On the other hand, these intangibles can be kept and stored inside one’s heart and mind and made as real as anything that does contain solidity and substance. 

What are these intangibles?  There are many: truth, justice, honor, integrity, trust, hope, faith, loyalty, desire, and love, just to name a few.  But regardless these intangibles may lack weight and substance they are nonetheless as solid and substantial as anything in the physical universe.  In fact, I believe most these qualities are even more solid and substantial than physical objects.  Especially love.  It may be the most solid substance in the entire universe.  Indestructible, too.  I present my ultimate contention via poetry, as follows:



The sun was shining–for the rain stopped and stole away.
But the wind kept blowing and left wind-swept trees unfurled!
They saw our presence…and demanded our souls to stay
And pay attention…while the day perfected the world!

Therefore, we spent it with the sea that greeted the shore.
Then listened to the sun and surf…and to lilting birds!
And we felt like forever…would last forever more.
With the smile inside our hearts that spoke a thousand words!

For might evening arrive and hurry us from our joy?
Or would we know to stay and not let time steal away?
No matter!–although there is much that life can destroy,
It won’t be the perfect love we felt this perfect day.
