Another great weekend
the heat kept us all warm and cozy
southern humidity "fits just like a glove"
as it grips you and rolls down your backside and off your wrist and cheeks
again you wipe the sweat from your brow
the dog days of summer are  here
in full furry and with perfect timing like the blood moon on the solstice
the hazy vapor on the roads like desert mirages in the sand
sweltering up like steam from the boiling sweet tea that is on the stove
swimming pools, lakes, and rivers act as  watering holes
hit the water for summer fun and long drunken boat rides to party island
another great weekend
in  this town that knows us all too well
the locals stick together like the home team
like the pants on the backs of your legs as you arise from the seats
All going to Nowhere
to see and hear the downtown hustle and bustle
of a town minus all the college students and extra cars
"WE CAN PARK!!"
While looking for your next cold drink to wash away the sunny day

2016 Summer
#summer   #lake   #city   #heat  

its a long time coming
but i am trying
i promise this time i am trying
again and again

Georgia just smiled again
that now famous lost smile...
snake charmers try to touch him

"The time does not matter anymore,
its always time to go", he says
with a laugh and grin

"My body aches,
my soul is damaged goods".

Georgia takes another sip of his melting whiskey drink,
Another pull, etc, etc....
He eats one more handful
and
decides to lay down for a little while.

"Enough to kill a small army seems to be just right", he says
as his eyes fight to stay open.

Tolerance, Peace, Love...
....Rock n Roll...

"Just living the dreams" he said

I'm Still Right Here
2016 and counting
here i am again
I'm still right here
still breathing
another day
start new
pick up the pieces
put them away
start fresh
shake off the heat
shake off the night before
shake off
the aches
the pains
the anxieties
shake off the urges
that come as soon
as i open my eyes
as to greet the day
I still feel you trying to pull me back to the gutter

well i never found a gutter that did not work at least temporarily
as a band aid

Take a look around
stretch
what to do today to stay busy
to
stay out of trouble
to
stay active and in motion
i cannot be idol
or
i will become weaker
pride before the fall
I'm still right here underneath it all


I'm still right here
Now what you gonna do....
devil on my shoulders?
How are you gonna
attack my soul today?
How are you gonna
try to be my friend?

here i am again
Still right here
another day
and
Im still breathing

This is just another attempt to get the words out to remove the feelings that are attached to the words.....

My appearance is beneath me.

I know what I look like.

I look like me.

I look like my generation.

I look like my soul.

I look like my religion.

I look like a certain hat,
that i wear over here

and

not
over there

I look like a person who has seen a lot

I may look like  i  have been around

But when I look into the mirror I look like my GOD

......and from the reflection of his image

is another image of a man starring back

who looks like me....

inspired from a text to my mother whom i love dearly.
