How Brave you must be~the squaw exclaimed to the Chief.   " Why, I am more than a Brave", the Chieftain quipped.!   " Just look at my feathers and the scalps hanging by my side,    do they not tell of My many Deeds ?    Her reply was a simple ,,  "YES,  I can see how you have adorned yourself ! "   He retorted ~ " And you certainly can't miss all the colors by which I have claimed  MY-STATUS ! "     The Squaw responded~ "YES,  the HUES on you,  certainly   tell me who and what you are,  now that I look closely  ! "    And he added~ "Look at the careful way in which I have displayed my Collection of  SCALPS,  Spaced ever so carefully around my waistband !    She questioned further,  "Have you  ,Oh Mighty Chief,  Properly named each of the Scalps ,  SO YOU won't forget from whence they came ? ?     "OH,  My Goodness, YES,  he answered.   "I wouldn't  ever want to forget where they came from,  SO~I admire each and Call each of them, By Name~ Everyday.   "SURELY" She continued,  "YOU are  much more than any other  Chief,  and by the way , DO you use Windex or Glass-Plus  to clean your mirrors ? ?  "    HE exclaimed,  "I, really don't know what cleaning  agent my servant uses,  to clean my many mirrors !  BUT,  they certainly do shine,  when I look into them !      The SQUAW  queried~  " BUT  what about your shoes, moccasins , if you would,  WHAT~~ is that Green-Gooey Stuff all over them ? ?   HE-Commented~ " I guess that when I  take my mighty steps, toes and feet,  IN THE WAY,   Fall under the Prances that I make ! ! ?

If bedbugs become  pets~ is there a possibility~someone is spending to much time in the sack~and not stepping out into what the Real World~ "Offers Up"~even tho the Bedbugs seem more friendly.....   If you Cry over White onions~why cry over the Red one ? ?      Turkeys Trot to a dance taught by man~Pretending to be foxes~always close  to the tail .    A Truly honest man~Would~Not be believed~if it weren't for the Falsehoods that Truly exist ! !   Staples when firmly pressed~Usually hold things together~SO_What makes these staples unworthy of being served up at dinner ?    Ever think about yard sticks? ~  and How Come your neighbors don't have any sticking up~   and your the only one that meets the measure. . .      POE only hinted at the torment of Modern  man~Stories in Stupors don't find the center of the heart~ Unless they are really experienced . .   It's sorta like being poured  into a Landfill~But like a Good Cork~You can't seem to sink all the way~Your head just bobbing above~and continually being that ready target~as additional waste'PILES AROUND ! !    It's like walking into a familiar room~But as you turn on the light switch~you discover~that you are now the "Stranger"~in a strange place. .     Life  is like a Trampoline~casting ones thoughts up and down for review~NOT considering that some may be actually measuring the values presented.  . *The *Broken heart of a man'who loves the woman who opened that door~ May Never be receptive to repair~NOT ENOUGH PARTS LEFT ! !    As the Lights "Come-On"~ it's like being at the Helm of the 'TITANIC" ~ assured that all others are off safely~AND~ the Shaking of Life Begins .......

The Surgeon with his highly trained skills~carefully prepares the area into which he will be Entering and Exiting.   He does not enter the freeway from the feeder street,  without first looking to check , to see if the way is clear or if there  may be an Oncoming Danger.     He does not go down the Dark Basement Stairs~without first turning on the light ~to make sure the steps are clear~ and exactly where he should place his very next step.   He does not stick his hand in the mouth of the Alligator~unless he knows the jaws are properly secured.          IF Man is so Aware of these Danger Signs~what is it that makes him so Unsure about tomorrow ?   And what is IT that makes another man~so sure about tomorrow ?   Which are the greater fears~the ones seen or the ones Unseen ?  Per chance the problem lies in the fact~ Man doesn't know for Sure~whom to ask !    Has mankind asked the wrong questions~ to the the wrong people ?   OR~does any other man~hold the correct  answers ?    Why is it~the salve rubbed on early in the morning~usually wears off by noon ?     Man has tried to make Erasers  for his fears~but as we scrub harder and harder with ~Man made Erasers~!    WE finally rub a Hole in the Paper !   So~what to do with the hole ? Start all over~on a new clean sheet~with even more erasers~as fears and errors~mount by the day.    As Man approaches his last sheet~erased and crumbled to the finest of powders .    Spelling out  ~ "WHO TO TURN TO " .

Are things really as they seem to be ? ......He was trying to explain his vision to a friend,  who was listening with a   Bent ear,  that kept some of the Truth from entering into the ear canal and properly vibrating the ear drum.     Thereby,  making for a somewhat distorted message ..    And the "Stirring-Vision" was explained and detailed as follows:     "There was this dog I had,   that instead of Barking ,  it meowed and wanted out in the Middle of the Night.    And,there was this Cat I had,   that instead of meowing,  it Barked and it wanted to jump up on people and wag it's tail.        There was this horse I had, that instead of wanting to come into the Barn at night,  it preferred to lay in the Mud-Wallow.    And,  there was this Hog I had,  that instead of Oinking and wanting slop for food,  would try to jump the fence to get to the Salt-Lick..    There was this Rooster I had,  that instead of crowing in the early morning,  it let out Bleats and desired to chew on cans.   And,  there was this goat I had,  that instead of wanting to climb  everything,  spent most of its day in the Hen house , as if it were an egg inspector.     There was this Parrot I had,   that instead of repeating words that were taught to him,  simply called out .."Please Milk Me".   And ,  there was this cow I had,   that instead of  wanting to have a peaceful day of chewing it's Cud,  spent almost all the waking hours,  Repeating every word it had ever heard.    Then,  I saw this snake , crawling away into the tall grass,  trying to get away before it was discovered.    Yes,  there's something about snakes,  just always trying to change things.   Slithering away,  as blame on changes, goes to another as he claims his credits  !

Sitting by the Birdbath~He noticed the sloshing had suddenly stopped~Looking over his book to take a Gaze~A bird he did not see~but He DID see a Face with legs~Glaring with  RED  eyes~that had a piercing effect~making him not fear~but rather be Drawn~to this face on the Birdbath~He saw no wings~but as he approached~he watched  the feet Push the head upward~Wings from his ears~stretched it seemed for 20 feet~And as it Lifted~not screeching as a Bird might do~but simply with firm clear WORDS~stated;   I'll return at Midnight, , ,     BE Ready for the Journey..........

As I look around,   What I see are the Fragments of Man !      Some quite Large,   Some very tiny!     Some as Ripped off,  Others as carefully Taken and placed down.    Some  I recognize as Hearts,  others appear as Spirit forms.    What is common is that some seek sympathy and attention!    Others,  as if an Enticement, want you to join them.   Each think they have made an offering,   That either asks for help OR cries out that You become as them!   Amazingly,  the crowds around them,  seem to debate as to which path they should choose.   ONLY a Handful,   Promptly turn their backs and RUSH away !     BUT,   the Majority sifts thru the SHARDS,  as if shopping at a Flea Market.   Going from Table to Table to Sample the Wares!   No one Cries out that they be "Taken Away" from the pieces  of SHARDS Scattered   all about them !   RATHER,  they ask that YOU Mix in some of Yours and set up a Table ,,Right Next to them ! __    MY Heart pounds a stronger RHYTHM,   My mind racing in questions,   Can't they see The're accepting  all these broken lives as if it should Be the NORM ?     None wants to stand out as His Own,   Fearful that they would be left alone  and WHIMS desires would be left in the  cleaning closet ~having to wait for use~so~they sleep in  a Brokeness  Slumber!    As I leave this "Fixed In My Mind" SCENE.   I reach down and pick up a Small SHARD, appearing to be part of One's Soul,,     Something I "WILL" be Praying about . . . .

The Little Boy child,  Sitting in the Dust on the edge of the Porch that protruded from the Leaning shack of a Building.    Extended forward his arm,  Opened His Hand,   Palm UP and Begged for  "Just a CRUMB of Bread,  Kind Sir? "                   The Pleading Eyes,   Tearing from fear and Frustration,   Peered deeply into the Crowds of People as they passed by.     Waiting,   Just waiting,   for ONE  to come forward and Place a small Morsel of BREAD  or some other Fine Delicacy that would provide the Ultimate  delight  of Lasting Taste!!                " Just a CRUMB of Bread,   Kind Lady ?

On a pondering Morning,   watching the Sun Rise,   I see off in the Distance a Twirling Fog bank !    It was the calmest of Mornings,   So what TWISTS the fog ?   Even the sound of Footprints being Quickly made,  I could hear Running across  the Misty Glade .   An Echo of Light seemed to follow the Pace,   As well as did the turning of the Fog .    What,  Pray Tell,  Could I be Privy too on this New Morning ?    The Foot path beats seemed to be coming closer,   But still Unseen because of the Clouded Steps.   I CRIED OUT  "Is someone there?"   and again "Is someone there?"   NOT a reply except the approaching sounds and sights !    As if Music to my ears,   a Melody emitted from the scene,   Coming closer each second.   I Realized that Anticipation and Peace of Mind were Overwhelming me !    NO fear or apprehension crossed my mind,   Just a lifting of my Spirits,   as not but a few feet away,  ALL Three were nearly to me !    The Footpath Sounds,  The Twisting mist,  The melody of Calling....    Then,  What seemed like 7  Minutes of a Total Earth Quiet Time !   Out from the Mist Stepped a Glistening  Golden,  Shimmering in Velvet,  Raven Haired to HER Waist..Loveliest of Women ever to be Seen !  As she began to speak,  it was as if  each word became forever imprinted in my Mind !   She Proclaimed in a voice so Gentle and Concise that she was Sent,,  Sent,  SO I might See,   What a Gift from GOD  Looks Like,  "MY GILDED MUSE".   Tears filling my eyes as Her indwelling within me BECAME COMPLETE.......

I Live on the Mountain,  Where the Clouds CARESS the Hillside ! !    And,You live in the Valley,  near the Stream on this side.   Every Morning when the Sun comes up,  I LOOK down at the Shadows in the Valley,   Hoping I'll see YOU My Love ! !    Hoping one day You'll come to my Mountain,   come sit by my side where the Clouds CARESS the Hillside.    Even though I Live on the Mountain and YOU live in the Valley,   WORLDS APART,   yet ever so near !   You've given Me a World,   You've given me a Kingdom.   Now the SUN is setting and I feel the falling Dew.   I Look down from my World,   Seeking to see YOU in the Valley.   But to my dismay, not even a Misty shadow of YOU do I see.  Why is this Tear forming in my eye ?   As I hear gentle rustling of Leaves ,  I turn slowly, sadly__BEHOLD ! ! YOU HAVE COME FROM THE  VALLEY and now stand by my side !    BUT NOW- WE live on the Mountain.  SO as I look at the Valley my dreams and hopes of You have become so ever True.

With a "STARTLED" Jolt at my breakfast table !!   The Headlines SCREAMED out at Me,,,,,   "F A V O R S*  TO BE SHUTTERED "   This was a Bit-Much I thought.   "FAVORS"  was to be closed for good and no one  even had the Gall to call and tell Me !    "ME" the Very FIRST customer and the most steady since  the Major Grand Opening>>  ten years ago"TO THE DAY"  !    To the Day??  GOD,  that sure seems strange,   What are the odds of that happening,  I Pondered?   While Delaying Pondering,  I decided to read the OBITUARY regarding FAVORS.   Hmmmm, , Let's see,  You've  got to be kidding,  they are taking out the tables ,  My Favorite FIRST.   And my Goodness, even the Wine,  wonder if I got the last bottle of that 1953 Fracioussa ??   A taste of such Mellowness and lingering Kindness !   Kindness surely isn't what has caused the  DEMISE of
FAVORS" .   Demise of such a GRAND Place "Was-Not" left to chance,   someone has deliberately caused this Tragic End of Such Magnificance !    A TEAR IS ABOUT TO "WET" the page NOW
,butthe phone rings and my thoughts are brought to it.   It is a Mysterious call,  some strange Voice,  Telling  Me to *HURRY on down to "FAVORS"__"RIGHT-NOW" !!     Now??  "YES-NOW" !!So,  on to FAVORS,  to watch them take out the tables, and yes take out the wine of that favorite place of Mine!!   As I step out of my CRAFT and onto the MONOLINE,  the Hustling,  bustling of the crowds,   reminds me of the longing of that "FAVORITE PLACE OF MINE"

The  Shadow that was there but a Moment ago,   Seems to have Moved a BIT  and now is Shining Aglow.   Why does the Shadow have such a SHARP,CRISP EDGE??   Is the light Behind it so great?   The Laughter I hear when the Shadow Moves,   I find NO sense of Humor in That Delight!  I was only Searching for the Source of the light,, You KNOW,  Like finding the "***-Of-Gold" at the end of the rainbow.   To my Surprise,,,,,When I did find the source of  such a strange light,    A Visitor by the name of "GRIMSTER"  stepped upon my toes,   Pushed Me from behind,   Laid a Trip-Wire in  MY PATH,   Broke every bulb Lighting The WAY,   Threw hundreds of Slippery marbles right at My Feet,   and all the while Demanding;;;   "I'll stop if ONLY you'll Claim me as Master!"   AS HE Tossed a bail of barbed Wire at my body!!  MY Retort cane from Deeep Within,;  "NEVER*Grimster I Proclaimed"!!   "What you offer is but a Facade,  Reality rests in the PATHS that I've chosen!"    THEN,,"Grimster" Turned UP the power of the Light,   The HEAT of which was beginning to Singe and Burn the Back of MY Neck..   I PICKED-UP a handful of the Marbles,   AND as  HARD AS I COULD THROW ,,,,   I Aimed them at the Center of the Light!!_The Quiet pause overwhelmed me!  THEN,   AS A NEW  kind of Bright Light FILLED my view.   I observed,  There were"NO" Shadows  and a Whispering MUSE of a Voice,  right in my ear,  as in Melodic Words ,,,,"PROCLAIMED TO ME three (3) TIMES!!      "GRIMSTER" has left for  "EASIER-PREY"

*" BEND IN THE RIVER " (#22)
barnoahMike Sep 2010
There's a Bend in the River By MY place!!   My Place is a Corner on the Ever running Stream.   The River flows swift and Quietly, With the thoughts of Many Inside.   Has it brought any Joy to You or Me?   We know the Answer of the River flowing by.   It doesn't have to tell us,  We SEE it by the Rushing of the Times!  The Only place it Slows,  is at the bend,  by My Place,  Giving Answers for all those who want to Know.   There once was a Girl, she had such great ambitions and looked to the Stars instead of the River ,,,  AND THEN HER GLORY WAS NONE!    SO,,,as she Bowed near the Bend in the River,   She found a Place to call Her own!   Where she sits now,  Silt no longer settles,,  a River running Clear,has washed away all the sorrows ....  She ,  and many others now enjoy the "BEND IN THE RIVER " by MY place.
