Circumstantial Evidence

Circumstantial Evidence
You say there is no God
But I say there is
If you look at all the
Circumstantial evidence

Look, look the evidence
Is all your to find
Look at the earth perfectly placed
Look in the mirror, look at your face
Look at the sun, it travels the sky
Look at love over a baby's cry

You say there is no God
But I say there is
If you look at all the
Circumstantial evidence

Look, look the evidence
Is all your to find
Look at the trees who balance the air
Look at a spider web, so fine, so fair
Look at the imagination in a mind
Look, look evidence is yours to find

You say there is no God
But I say there is
If you look at all the
Circumstantial evidence
Look, look the evidence
Is all yours to find

“A poet dares be just so clear and no clearer..

— E.B. White

Hear the Melody

Hear the melody of the flowers
As they're blowing in the wind
See the beauty of all the unseen
Bask in the colors again and again
Touch those things you cannot feel
Reach out, hold onto them somehow
Taste the foods delectably sweet
Feast on them in this life, here now
Feel your life as it was meant to be
Where every moment has a place in time
Every time has it's own moment to see

A life where there will always be
A time to run
A time to try
A time to rest
A time to cry
A time to laugh
A time to hold on
A time to let go
A time to move on

Look at this life admit to yourself
What you're seeing what you've seen
Say it is so, you will see the truth
There is a God who has always been
He is the melody of the flowers
He is all the sights still unseen
He is who you touch, but cannot touch
He gives us food we need to eat
You see beauty where you desire
You see ugliness where you're afraid
You see life as an unlit fire
You see truth as just a charade
Every time has it's own moment to see

A life where there will always be
A time to run
A time to try
A time to rest
A time to cry
A time to laugh
A time to hold on
A time to let go
A time to move on
A time to turn to God

That Was A Good One

That was a good one
It made me laugh
Quite a little joke
But it made me laugh
I gotta say thank you
Cause it's been awhile
Since anything made me
Laugh or smile
That was a good one
It made me laugh
Keep the joke coming
I want to hear more
I need to laugh
Like I did before
Come on I'm waiting
Slide them my way
So when I hear them
I can truly say
That was a good one

Dream On

Dream on
Dream on
Life is not over
Till You stop dreaming
So dream on
Used to have such lofty plans
Til life caught up with you
And pulled you way down
Now it's time to rise up
Get back on your feet
Put you head in the clouds

And dream on, dream on.
Dream on
Dream on

Life is not over
Till You stop dreaming
So dream on
Stop staring at your life
Thinking what you did wrong
Look to your dreams
They'll carry you along

Dream on
Dream on
Life is not over
Till You stop dreaming
So dream on

“To be a poet is a condition, not a profession.”

— Robert Graves

The Evolution of Being Human

We’re all human At least I think so

When you look around I don’t really know

When we treat each other in such a rage

What’s happened to humans these days


We’ve got a long, such a long way to go

Till skin color, or race don’t bring us to blows

Evolution of human needs to start within

It’s in the heart where it all has to begin


When we seek love not anger as our way

The differences we see will start to fade

Instead of being apart, we will become one

To reach our goal, to finally get things done.


Us and them cannot be the battle cry

If so sadness reigns as innocent people die

Instead we must put away the old ways

Be the change that makes for new days.


The road won’t be easy on this new walk

But we can make it as long as we talk

Put everything out in the open for all to see

To create a new normal in the land of the free


Life is much more than take and take

It is about giving back for Heaven’s sake

Only then will equality be the lay of the land

As we all join together to walk hand in hand

I Want to Go Home

I want to go home again

To relive all the moments

Which brought me a smile

To walk once again

Each joy filled mile


To be with all the family

Time has since taken away

To say to them all the words

I forgot I wanted to say


I want to go home again

To feel an inner peace

Which over the years

Has seemed to cease


I want to go home again

To those old familiar spaces

Where each day was

Leisurely spent passing the time

With a beverage of choice

And a few musical lines

Where the we had

Seemed magical and rare

And if some small ways

We showed other we care


I want to go home again

To feel an inner peace

Which over the years

Has seemed to cease

Don't Wait

Don't Wait Til It's To Late

Don't wait to get you act together

That day may never come

Can't wait til the pieces fit

By then your time may be done


It's a simple thing

That sounds so complex

It takes a little faith

Then what comes next

A prayer, some tears

A change in the heart

An end, a beginning

Love that won't depart


Don't wait to get you act together

That day may never come

Can't wait til the pieces fit

By then your time may be done

I'm not here to preach

I come to you as a friend

Open up your heart

Then the truth you will see

It's a simple thing


That sounds so complex

It takes a little faith

Then what comes next

A prayer, some tears

A change in the heart

An end, a beginning

Love that won't depart

Don't wait to get you act together

That day may never come

Can't wait til the pieces fit

By then your time may be done

Life is not over til you stop dreaming, so dream on, dream on

Life Is About

Life is about doing
Not Getting

Life is about growing
Not about sitting still

Life is about helping
Not complaining

Life is about loving
Not about hiding

Life is about smiling
Not frowning

Life is about giving
Not about taking

Life is about listening
Not about bragging

Life is about singing
Not about being quiet

Life is about asking
Not about demanding

Life is about tasting
Not about gorging

Life is about playing
Not about the sidelines

Life is about happiness
Not about sadness

Life is about attracting
Not about repelling

Life is about tomorrow
Not about yesterday

Life is about adding to
Not about subtracting from

All of this leads to one final thought
Life is living for eternity
Not about living for the here and now


Notes:

There you have my 12th volume of poems from the beach. I want to come clean. When I write these poems I'm actually about fifteen miles from the Seaside NJ beach. Still the locals say we are at the beach. I still call it the Jersey Shore.

Whatever it is called I enjoy writing and offering my work for all to read. I hope you enjoyed this weeks poems of inspiration. Until next time stay safe and read on.
