Confluence(Thanks and Hope)

 

Lyric Excerpt:

Song of Peace, Freedom, and Unity

‘Turning of the World’(Ruth Pelham)

As Sung by Cindy Michelassi

 

‘Let us sing this song for the turning of the world

That we may turn as one

With every voice, with every song, we will move the world along

And our lives will feel the echo of our turning’

 

Voices, thoughts

diverse  

merging together

freely

many, finally becoming one

culmination

momentum starts from

one action

one thought..intention

giving thanks

Singing, Chants, Recitations, Prayers, Hymns

eventually finding strength

among common strands

stressing

 the beauty of

difference

diversity

sounds of loneliness

pebble falls, endless tumble

invisible, mute

what if somebody listened?

what if somebody would care?

november’s cold winds

moonlight filtered through tree’d path

summer leaves tumbling

Crowd Noise…….

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

Like, it’s not hard like algebra

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

But, then you have to like think and stuff….

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

But those sandals would work with that parka

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

Like, I was grounded……

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

Like, When did She Die….?

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

So Like, how many babies is that?

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

But You don’t look that old

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

That hair color looks so natural

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

Does this dress really make my butt look big?

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

But like how many calories in that slice of cheesecake? Like, I’m so afraid of getting fat and stuff

Gurgle-Gurgle…..Blah-Blah

Like Like Like Like, Like Like Like

Somewhere another modern day Valley Girl is hatched…..

night skies, howling winds

drunken whistling down dark streets

echoed steps fading….

bum’s million mile glare

redolence of indigence   

fading voice beckons

Haiku

 

gray clouds, resigned sky

cold wind blows, exposed places

rusty swing creaking
