A Poem by Chris






every damn time I pause with "you" 

- thoughts begin to flow... 

They have their own consciousness 

and validity - 

direction and scents,

breadth and depth,

pressure of existence

and even ...

a touch of understanding.


I HEAR you

and don't ...just...react to

a now,

to risen "memories",

to un-or-mind-fulfilled desires,

to wishes for a Love

or sexuality-fueled intensities...


I HEAR you - 

and "thoughts" flow

and continue - on their own -

to wonder and wander

to pause, to grow,

to question AND view,

expand and breathe,

to peer into

...the person I am,

and existence as I feel it.


Seems you give my soul a smile huh...

just being you -

and me - just being me.


...that IS how life ...happens.

Sometimes rambling IS a way of life...

Regards back,
you are the composer, Chris...
you hit the right notes....life just happens...and if we have someone close to share those "happenings"
it is a big sigh.

Thanks Rocks...
Not sure about the "sigh".
Do enjoy all your notes..
Vivid tones, held
Low tones made soft

That Lion in your spirit
comes through loud
and clear ..

Sometimes thoughts GO
where WE guide them..


Hope you will continue
to enjoy your time
with us..

You are a blessing in this world..

I don't think you could have a better Muse my friend. Your poem honors him and is an eloquent, heart-felt tribute. Piano notes..., battle with depression...He is your catalyst. He would be proud. "I HEAR you..." and "sigh".....love this. Kudos!
