The Freedom of Getting Older

When I was young I had to spend a lot of time investing in my career, then young family. I also had my own one man consulting business.

Winter Solstice

Magnetic linesElectrifyUV raysBathe us in lightNighttime starsShow us the way Winter solsticeEarths delightGive us short daysAnd long nightsRadio wavesNorthern Lights Carry the messageOf our loveOne door closesAnother opensSoon comes the New YearLook for New Hope ChorusFrom light to darkAnd dark to lightLets make hayWhile the sun shines

I Hope I Never Hope Again

Caught by surpriseFear in our eyesHearts filled with doubtWhat’s it all about?

Thanksgiving will be full of thanks this year. Even with the pandemic – the promise of a vaccine looms large – and when I say loom – this time its a good thing!

Liberty trainBroken chainsSmashed oppressionFreedom reigns Deposed KingDeposed QueenClear the courtOf all the Jesters New day wakingFascism quakingNo more takenAdvantage of

Harvest Time

It’s harvest time The frost is on the pumpkinWe reap what we sowWe harvest the crops that grow Its harvest timeWe’ve smashed the Rotten PumpkinThis year its nothing but treatsAfter 4 years of dirty tricks Its harvest timeThe Pumpkin has been smashedTime to sit by the fireWe forced the Pumpkin to retire ChorusSmash the pumpkinSmash the pumpkinSmash the pumpkinSmash the pumpkin
