So this is part of my music geekiness I love music!!!

i have spent much of my adult hood chasing music, listening or in clubs.

Dreaming about it now I am turning my poetry into music.

I am entranced by the idea of bringing poetry to people who would never take it on themselves.

I want people to stumble into, become emmersed in it that they don’t really know until they have fully been saturated.

Kind of like boiling a lobster.

‘Once you learn a poem, have a poem memorized no one can take that from you it is yours’.

I believe it was poneyboy or curtis who said the above quote.

The only one I really have memorized is ” everything gold’ by Robert frost. Amazing, simple and awakened. Need I say more?

I found that one in the classic epic tale of the outsiders which I was infatuated with when I read it. .

Sadly I have a terrible memory which is horrible if you want to be a preforming poet but I don’t have time for that now.

Sooo what do I memorize? Songs.

I can recall most songs as soon as the music starts to play.

There is a muscle memory that just picks up with music.

Not only that but the vibration of sound, my movements and memories as each song has found it’s way into my life at a certain time.

So this is why I continue to work on making this kind of progression.

Because for me it is the only way.

eat my soul/21/soul love saga

 

vasmiths permanent collections

 

The bibles

a parable

the way it’s supposed to be

is a propaganda

on society

eat my soul

it might not fill your belly

but whirl

your world

considers wide

no one can understand

no one can grasps

the desires

no one shares

only the hypocrisy the dare

smiths permanent collection of 60's psychedelic posters

 

guess you don’t know

 

can’t you see

 

the world turning to my degree

 

gothic rhymes

 

jungle vibes

 

underground rules

 

the city found the energy

 

born in you’re mind

 

can’t you see

 

techno soul

 

betchya can roll uninhibited

 

in the euphoric state

 

signs of the times

 

make music mine

 

de ju vu, rendezvous

 

same time next week

 

listen to what I  heard  the beats so raw

 

the world turning to my degree

 

gothic rhymes  in the old church

 

past the village you’ll find jungle vibes

 

underground rules

 

it’s a mix

 

get off

 

to bring it on

 

vibe in me

 

throw away my sad

 

So I can control the mood in me

 

obsessing dimensions /37 soul love saga

 

P1010622

 

 

You could be sitting so still

writing one poem/meditating

all while so many dimensions of life exist

 

who am I? How is my being? How am I living? 

making my home? who and How do I love?

my obsessions, my family+ life’s work 

 

Like my patchwork quilt 

layers deep

interconnected by one spirit 

sewed by many strings

knotted in magik

growth + expansion this ever changing life

full of incomplete obstacles

stretching all limits of mind + body 

beyond belief working at the core of all you ever were 

adding to the potential of all that ever will be

even when life is at a stand still

the rivers continue to flow 

adding to the mass of ocean 

a collective conscious 

even as I collapse in my hammock +sleep

to the nights sounds/sky

with nothing between the divine universe +I

she reaches out and calls to me 

caressing my obsessions

as I lay waiting for my wishing stars

drumming/37/soul love saga

This drum is alive

beating like the

first rhythm

of creation

connected to

the divine

is alive

all the fires burning

in my soul

drumming this beat

in the midst of creation

pure sound vibrating

your eardrums

pulsing through your veins

rocking your soul

to thrive

alive

with vitality

hypnotic expressions/24/ soul love saga

Hypnotic expressions of society

created for our dream land

mine is happiness

I seek serene

colours of hue

music, ecstatic bliss

love too beyond degrees

paths somewhere

in any direction

free where the kingdom is lost

om

every hour

I work harder

to unite my soul with

hundreds for loves sake

I fight to win

peace is my prize

another  sunrise and full moon

psychology , my dear

 

I ponder a place to plore forevermore

shall I ask …

ecstasy for me????

heaven shall love

in my heart today

tomorrow my soul

will take it away

question sanity

of those who whisper discretely

my ears, my body are above petty

I move on

till the next horizon

I will make my words

silently

Seas across sanction/24/soul love saga

DSCF4634

seas across sanction
Lie across the horizon
live among nature
don’t let Babylon carry on
bring truth to delicate ears
reasons are those
of the beholder
love on the earth
let it be
all the sights
our eyes can feast on
