    LOWDOWN ON MY HOEDOWN

    Drink Up

    I am a true Texan

    Came from a small Texas Town

    Travelling on a Stage Coach kicking up dust

    I came to a town called “REFRESHING GULCH”

    That town has the right name

    But I am just being lame

    Those folks drink Sun Up to Sundown

    Now I don’t drink along those lines

    But then again, have I truly lost my mind

    However, all I can remember I was knocked out drunk

    It happened in the Pleasure Saloon

    I had arrived on that Stage Coach at noon

    What a way to begin a journey

    By the way, my name is Ernie

    Somehow, I was so drunk, I was put into a hotel room in town

    It was called “SETTLE YOURSELF

    I woke up and found myself in nothing but my underwear

    Talk about an embarrassing moment

    Barely holding steady

    I have a hangover the size of ...

    ANOTHER PAGE

    Written words

    Beyond measure

    My heart having no pleasure

    Every thought with a doubt

    Concentrating as I am moving about

    Yet the pages have no imagination

    It is just pages of here and there

    The whole situation within beware

    There’s no destination

    No explanation

    Stuck on page jam

    Dilemma

    When will I overcome at the surface?

    Pause is ever so obvious

    Pages upon pages full of rage

    Perhaps it settles with my old age

    The sentences don’t mount

    Each letter is beyond count

    I am totally dissatisfied
    I am in reside
    This is life in provide
    It is become my stride

    But all I want to do is hide

    But for now, I must reflect and take everything in

    Start all over with a new page of begin

    I can’t be still and pretend

    This can’t be an e...

    UNSETTLED SPIRIT

    You say you are unsettled

    But your mind is uncertain

    You feel stuck in your struggles

    You have loss your way

    That’s ok but don’t astray

    There is a direction from the Almighty being the guide

    He knows the way in helping you feel ok

    He is the truly in remain

    Look up and seek

    Knee down and pray

    Lift those hands in praise

    Watch the turnaround in amaze

    You will have peace and comfort in your spirit

    See the blessings being God’s merit

    Today you got a reminder

    Guidance beyond

    The blessings to look upon

    When in despair

    The Lord will clear the air

    His reaction is beyond compare

    Unsettled is released

    PUMPKIN NIGHT

    Through the ages of Pumpkin time

    It all started within the Pumpkin patch

    It went beyond the Halloween catch

    Happenings involving a moonless night

    Occurrence after another

    Pumpkin’s from around the world were rising and turning into blood thirsty Zombies

    They were stalking Human life

    No time to explain in advice

    I am too busy running for my life

    The night is about survival

    The Pumpkin’s are walking among us

    They search and moan for a hearty meal

    The pumpkin’s want to rejuvenate

    This is the night of “Pumpkin Retreat”

    Lock all your doors and keep your windows closed

    It’s the Midnight hour

    The pumpkins rejoice and not turn sour

    In the eyes of pumpkin sight

    Darkness prevails with no light

    There is a reason for fright

    The night is alive and the pumpkins sha...

    FEVER WRITER

    Words that turn cold into hot

    At times the warm feeling whether you like it or not

    Temperature rises

    The after effects in surprises

    No one knows what will come next

    It leaves a feeling of being perplexed

    Maybe even in the mirror doing a quick flex

    Yet words that could cause a sweat

    Spreading the word

    A moment in needing to be heard

    Word sick

    A thought that would stick

    Temperatures Elevate, but it is up to the fever words to illustrate

    FLYING AIRCRAFT BUS

    Welcome aboard and buckle up

    Prepare for takeoff

    Let me introduce myself, I am the Pilot of words

    On this flight, you will learn about this flying bus

    The company is well known and you will be surprised

    Now it is time for me to emphasize

    You heard of flying cars that turn into a plane

    That’s the future, and moving forward will remain

    But my story is about a flying bus

    Yes, it surrounds the Greyhound bus

    Imagine a stretched hound being the trademark on an actual plane

    It is a known fact, but let me take you back

    It was in 1996, the Greyhound Air started its Canadian Flight

    Passengers left from the various Canadian Airports

    Greyhound had taken to the friendly skies that became an enterprise

    The Parent Company was Greyhound Canada

    However, the airlines business was short lived, and ceased operations in 1997

    Fright and Scare

    A Night to remember in aware

    The Night Clouds hiding the Moon

    Reactions coming soon

    Moans full of cries

    Soul’s Rise

    The Dead will be emerging from their graves

    They will be looking for Soul’s for their appetite

    The flesh will be the sight

    Seconds to precise

    There is no offer of advice

    Evil on the Deceased Minds

    Roam with revenge

    Living flesh on the edge

    Blood Thirsty Soul’s

    Threshold Night

    But Beware

    Eerie is in the air

    No other night would compare

    Where do the living go from here?

    Sleep with your eyes wide open

    Once you fall asleep

    It will be too late

    You will become deceased yourself

    Beware Beware Beware

    The Clock has stopped on pause

    FREEDOM ROLL CALL

    Finding who I am

    What one is supposed to conquer?

    The pain for understanding

    Separating one’s self from the environment of hate

    Life teachings through fate

    Liberty the first step

    Embarking on a journey truly my own

    Eyes to see

    Ears to hear

    But throughout having no fear

    Listen to me and believe

    Release the tension and feel relieved

    The world started from Heaven

    Creations of color shades years ago

    I am who I am

    My principles are my thinking

    I stand on fact

    That is how I keep track

    I am welcomed as a person in Heaven’s eyes

    Yet to the world it might be a surprise

    My name is associated with the skies

    This is how I am wise

    Intrigue to Lead

    But never let be misled

    It’s determination to proceed

    Long to be free

    TEARS I CAN ONLY COUNT

    My time in fear

    Rejection in not wanting anyone near

    My tears are my experiences I saw

    My mind told me to completely ignore

    No flourish to soar

    My tears pour heavy

    They are like a Dam levy

    But they are holding steady

    How do I overcome?

    I am surrounded by lonesome

    My tears are next to none

    I must step out in courage

    That is the only way to nourish

    Tears come at a moment’s notice

    My tears show I have no confidence

    It’s obvious in an instance

    No matter how tears fall

    I must be able and not stall

    I feel more of a regret

    My tears have that effect

    Stop now tears

    This is the right time to preserver

    Encourage me and come near

    My tears have drawn back

    My darkness is no longer black

    I am responding now in just reflect

    THE AUTHOR’S MIND

    I feel a story coming on

    The Characters are carefully placed where they belong

    Words are the narrations

    Dialog with no intimacy

    Letters formulated from the Alphabet

    A time with hours to write

    Alone in thought

    Inspiration of sought

    As the words opened up

    A theory appeared

    It was romance being only a test

    But there was an interruption throughout

    War took place

    It wasn’t a warrior war

    It was a war of two hearts

    Together was separate

    The words behind were the illustrate

    The storm of two minds

    Don’t speak

    Retreat

    Emotions had no thoughts

    It was a stand alone tormented

    Leave me

    The sunset had settled down

    Now no one can be found

    Path’s go down different roads

    This wasn’t something that was told

    ARISE ARISE

    I have come so far

    I was getting further and further away

    I asked the Lord to help me on this day

    My life needs salvation in every way

    A voice said, “Now Come Home”

    I knew than I wasn’t standing alone

    Suddenly Joy and Praise came my way

    A shout echoed, I will never go astray

    The Devil blocks what he doesn’t want you to understand

    He encourages anyone to his caravan

    The Lord opens to door to a blessed extension

    It becomes a total Christian lesson

    Truth in the Holy Spirit

    Rejoice as it is embraced in merit

    Time after time

    I understood more and more

    I knew there is much to Christianity I needed to explore

    I shouted Mercy and Glory

    But that is only half of my story

    My Biblical eye was on search

    I was told to go to a place of foundational worship

    TIME VANISHED

    You moved like a slow moving vessel steamer

    Time you thought you had

    You totally forgot

    You seemed to be stuck on being still

    But time was on full acceleration

    Tick Tuck was your time

    You thought you could keep up

    You figured the long was your extended time

    But the short hand said you were out of time

    The Midnight Hour was your finale

    You no longer had any seconds nor minutes left

    Every component of time captured your every pause and movement

    You were now trapped in a clock

    You will never get out

    Time controls all you about

    You didn’t understand what precise time meant

    It was a lesson you never knew and didn’t try to find out

    Time surrounds you within the walls

    You are now sustained in your stall

    In essence, your fault being your fall

    Time tried to warn you, but you totally ...

    PIANO KEYS ADVICE

    The ivories seems to say through the notes, we have an inspiring tone

    A note that played here and there

    Your today is certain, but tomorrow is followed by a question

    Every note symbolic being like a prophecy

    But one’s life has no guarantees

    Warrant on caution

    You seem to think you are stepping out

    You don’t even realize you are fighting your own bout

    It’s the battle of your heart and inner soul

    Your mind has become like a wallet billfold

    Your relish expense, but you are broke

    Laughter surrounds you but you are the joke

    Harmony has passed you by

    Withy every given tear, it was a moment of your own fear

    Your life having no direct pattern

    If I were to choose for you a planet, it would be Saturn

    Because you see constant pause without knowing the cause

    Separate emotion into sacrifice

    STORM ALERT

    I remember a song stating, “Don’t be afraid of the storm, but hold your head high”

    You questioned me about my own storms

    I fell down, but got up

    I then walked on

    Faith surrounded me

    My arms were raised in praise

    I knew it was God’s amaze

    Yet you kept questioning me again about my storms

    But do you even know what your storms were in your life?

    A storm can be devastating, but also a learning experience through one’s living

    Faith is the answer and behind it is the Lord in don’t be alarmed

    Lightning is the advice

    Rain becomes the many showering blessings

    The wind is comfort in being at ease

    Hail is the battle, but victory comes from on high

    Praying that sustains into Lord help me please

    BLUE EYES

    The image of your face, Eyes and smile

    I wondered during my while

    You said me being a Poet and how my words captured you

    My words went all through and through

    Our loving came together like a full moon

    I searched for a very long time for a female mate

    Blue eyes when you came along it was pure fate

    Your blue eyes caught my attention

    It was like a Hawaiian night

    My heart pounded with that very first kiss

    I knew then I wanted you to be my miss

    Blue eyes you are so down to Earth

    I was enriched like a new birth

    You make me ever so wise

    Our moments together are energized

    Let us both journey together to the next level

    It’s marriage on my mind

    NAVIGATING MY LIFE

    At first, I was using my own senses

    I was getting loss and further out of my way in all the wrong directions

    I asked citizens, and I was running into detours

    Blinded by darkness

    I started using my Directional Finder

    But I was still a long way from home

    A voice echoed, “Don’t roam come home”

    I can direct your path

    Suddenly Salvation got closer, and I found my way

    All the roads that I had taken was leading me astray

    I had been travelling on the wrong roads all my life

    I had no idea in how to even reach my destination

    A voice had to show me in illustration

    In the beginning tomorrow seemed ever so far

    I was way off track

    It seemed someone was trying to hold me back

    REBEL

    As I recall you didn’t want me anymore

    We argued all the time

    Your rebuke being my move on

    I responded with I will get along

    There was no love only cheating on both sides

    Get out, you can’t reside

    Commitment has no meaning

    It was simply lies

    I am not a light switch being on and off

    When you stepped out

    Your cheating was known all about

    From sunset to sundown you were nowhere to be found

    I now have peace and tranquil

    I have no tears

    I don’t want you ever to come near

    I am able to move on

    My heart being a locked secure door

    You are a person I will always ignore

    You only want to put me down

    But I am not falling to the ground

    You are long distance by my standards

    MEMOIR OF MISS BUTTERWORTH

    Her story wasn’t always so sweet

    Slippery in fact

    Listen as Miss Butterworth traces back

    It was at the Oak View Plantation

    It wasn’t a place full of fascination

    The City and State was Clever, Alabama

    Her life was full of struggles

    Miss Butterworth was often beaten morning, noon and night

    Her whole life was life with unquestionable plight

    Miss Butterworth wanted to see freedom as her guiding light

    That night, Miss Butterworth made her escape

    Vast rivers surrounded the Plantation all over

    When it rained she found cover

    But her determination to be free rang high

    Here’s why

    Miss Butterworth often talked to other slaves of Freedom ways in the East

    That was her vision in encouragement at least

    Miss Butterworth thought back that all she could think about running through her mind was, “I had to be fr...

    BACKWARDS TURNAROUND IN REVERSE

    A Novelist thought clever in wanting to write a trivial story

    He had all the details with bringing all its glory

    How will the reader respond?

    It’s anybody’s guess

    The Novelist controls the theory being his trump card

    But the story has a strong tail

    Now let me illustrate without fail

    The conclusion is the start with a turnaround

    It was murder in the start being a conclusion of the dialog

    Later the story becomes a turnaround with knock at the door that led to the murder

    Now there is no specific order

    The idea is too visualize in your mind what the outcome should be

    The Novelist is only setting the background with the situation

    Yet there is a lot of reverse in the turnaround

    The identity of the murderer is not really clear

    But there is uncertainty being fear

    But it is unbreakable

    It’s because I am prayed up being stable

    You were trying to make me relish in pity

    That makes me glad

    I was built being shatterproof

    Up close and personal with Farmers in their crops

    Ranches upon Ranches

    The Towns people in their welcome wave

    Looking for shade

    Always a new beginning with every tomorrow

    Hills with a highway rise

    Around the bend being always a surprise

    The Greyhound Dog stretched out in plain sight

    Distance from East to West

    How do I describe Bill McCreary, Professionalism and his words giving viewers his purpose in his stories

    Mr. McCreary had explanations in what made his stories come to life

    One particular news story was MALCOLM X, and Mr. McCreary had interviewed Dr. Betty Shabazz, widow of Malcolm X

    I knew this one town was my purpose

    The surroundings made it all obvious

    All one has to do is believe

    Life expectancy is what one would receive

    Yet there still wasn’t any communication

    I was explaining everlasting within your soul

    Showed you miracles in behold

    Illustrated a story that was never told

    I even tried to be bold

    The reality came to no respect

    Again it was reject

    I offered peace

    But your emotions you wouldn’t release

    In fact it was full of commotion

    It felt like a wavy stormy ocean

    Time after time I wanted to talk

    You took it as a stalk

    I ant you to live a better life

    I wanted to offer some advice

    Smells so sweet

    The essence of a Bird tweet

    The visualization of Roses in a moving heart

    My soul thirst

    Fulfilling my Quench

    The moment is accelerating

    The Moon has pushed the sun from light into dark

    We are finally among

    The thought of night

    The candlelight that adds to the delight

    Feed me until I am full

    At your will

    This is our story tale

    Enchanted without fail

    The kiss makes our love complete

    Come closer, your kiss was unique

    Love whispered silently in my ear

    But that is every time you are near

    You are mystique

    Our Souls are bonded

    Enchanted beyond any fable

    The bull’s eye hit...

    POET ORDINANCE

    How and when?

    The finale finishing at the end

    Your mind telling you to write

    Your thoughts encouraging being possible

    Your words you seem to muster

    But are you words wanting you to be their master?

    Cluster after cluster

    Words becoming more dominant

    But are you true in being imminent?

    Words are telling you awaken

    But you think you are dreaming and still asleep

    Your thoughts get deeper

    Words are all circulating through your mind

    Stories that are developing within your self-conscious

    Suspicious speculation in theory

    Mysterious

    But it is making you furious

    You are angry because the words command you

    Your mind is fighting the words in a writing battle

    The midnight oil has you sitting in the saddle

    You are writing poetry you never thought possible

    You have the advantage, because the...

    HOUNDING MILES

    Hours into days

    Scenery as we accelerate astray

    Downtown along with towns

    America’s bus

    Leave the driving and don’t forget about us

    The beauty of reclining and relaxing back

    Communicating with all passengers in acquainting chat

    That stretched out racing hound knows the way

    But it is the skillful driver who does this every day

    Routes recorded into miles

    But this is surrounds the Greyhound bus style

    The bus wheels turning in schedules precise

    Noon Day into sunrise the next day with arrival nice

    Covered state after state

    I have seen America and that is no hesitate

    Nothing but time

    The getaway being genuine

    The hound took me away

    I have my Hotel when I arrive that I will stay

    I am picturing Banjos, Trumpets and any other musical instrument that I can think of as I ride

    THE STORYTELLER’S HIDDEN MIND

    A narration of a Warrior and a Sword

    To Protect within anarchy rights

    Strength being the force

    Battle forming the course

    A Castle nestled in Featherson Valley

    MIND INTO WONDER

    Imagine the possibilities

    Facing true realities

    Search within the understanding

    Looking beyond to find truth

    Deep yonder in thoughts

    Caught up within the moment

    Short pause

    Exploring perspectives

    Yet analyzing one’s own objectives

    Figures forming equations

    It’s knowledge surfacing in education

    Rhetoric being the Logic

    Physics odds

    The conclusion

    Perhaps nothing more than an illusion

    But there might be some confusion

    Think until resolved

    But all analytical activity involved

    The mind tells you so

    So you are in the know

    Your mind painted a picture to show

    WHAT’S GOING ON

    Marvin Gaye’s song, “What’s going on?”

    A question

    Perhaps a suggestion

    What’s happening to an untamed world?

    A word full of hate

    Change can ‘t penetrate

    A rising voice won’t stand to illustrate

    Cries into moans

    Tomorrow on daily sorrow

    The world’s hearts flourishing on being shadow

    Fist up ready for every fight

    Guns adding to the might

    What’s going on?

    A world that was once on love and respect

    It has come to reject

    A world nobody knows

    But is there understanding in the asking?

    It’s the search for change in participate
    But it becomes greater into getting enough

    Some see it as a bluff

    We can’t let go

    We must follow through

    What can we all do?

    The midnight hour with the sounding of the bell

    Thunder of the mind

    Lightning flashes not acting kind

    Words one letter at a time

    They are more than alphabetic phrases

    Captivation in amazes

    The Night skies grow even darker

    The shade of the marker

    A night of suspense

    Time came and went

    Scientist all confused

    The atmosphere no one can defuse

    The Earth on destruction

    The Moon and Earth formed like a team

    But what does that all mean?

    The end of civilization as we know it

    Prophecy foreseen what events would happen

    Man just brushed it aside

    The word is now out in the open with no place to hide

    A world trapped in damnation

    HOLY, HOLY, HOLY

    I praise to the Lord boldly

    This is the week to be steadfast and Holy

    The reflection back is how Jesus is merciful and sweet

    It is not something that you will find in a tweet

    It’s the spoken gospel words that speak

    Jesus went to the cross to abolish our sins

    Our praises should be often, but not now and then

    Jesus is the beginning and end

    The course was set

    It was hours of agony that Jesus spent

    Yet the cross is our reminder are we ready to stand

    An hour could be our second

    The minutes the precise time

    It’s Heaven our aim

    It’s the blessings behind that remain

    Anguished and torn

    Everyday we should make the Jesus name full blown

    Jesus prayed until he couldn’t pray anymore

    Mocked and beaten

    But it was the prophecy that had to be fulfilled

    TORN BETWEEN ANGUISH

    We have a love affair

    But anguish separates us

    It’s our love not a struggle

    It’s the battle’s that surrounds

    It is war that wants to invade our town

    Anarchy that wants us to be their slave

    Our love is strong, but wars want to separate us apart

    There are no boundaries, and my loins lust for your continuous lips against mine

    I refuse to let love make us detour

    We could meet in the hills where war won’t find

    Yet the struggles below won’t be kind

    Ashes could be both our hearts

    Danger and constant alert

    Destruction that captures our moment

    I want your love and need your love

    We are meant to be together

    War only makes our love even better

    HATRED, THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT

    Caution, Alert and Look Out

    Hatred seems to be moving in multitudes about

    Hatred definitely needs a rebound

    Respect in values and morals having a sound

    Race should not be a discipline

    At the same level, it shouldn’t be a resent

    All Races were put on this Good Earth for a reason and purpose

    It wasn’t meant for Hatred to surface

    Blacks know all about Racism

     

    But now Asian’s are being attacked

    It seems Hatred is running like a pack

    No Race is better than the other

    All Races were created to come together

     

    A mirror only sees the outer image

    But change of the mind comes from inner thought

    This certainly is not in God’s will

    Wisdom has been replaced by tomorrows Millennial

    Knowledge of the past being a wonder

    However, the past must now ponder

    AND SO I WRITE

    I write to pass the days

    It keeps my mind sharp from going astray

    At times it could be experiences

    The focus on encouragement in instances

    Yet my writing gives me assurances

    Inspiration from influences

    What I learned I try to share

    Through the cloudy days and fair

    Breaking down from uncertain skies with a changeable heart

    Yet my writing directs me and shows me tomorrow

    Through the tears of sorrow

    Directions that are precise

    Sometimes giving me a dose of my own advice

    Words for achieving and sentences for sustaining

    Writing gives me the psychological approach

    Focus is on fact

    While writing keeps me on track

    Writing being my anecdote

    But it keeps down to encouragement from within being how my words were spoken

    My writing is a gift from Heaven and blessed words are my token

    2020 DEPARTURE

    2020 in several hours will become history

    During 2020 there was plenty of mysteries

    Uncertainty having top dollar became the voice

    It affected us all being no choice

    2020 is a year that everyone wants to forget

    We can’t reverse what has already happened in regret

    Yet no matter what, the year, 2021 is the year we pray and hope to make

    Not be a year of give or take

    Not be a year to say for goodness sake

    But looking forward to appreciate

    2021 to be a year to move forward into positivity

    A year offering opportunity being full of activity

    But the Mask and Social Distance will be the agenda

    2021 will be continuous as we enter

    But let’s think hope

    Put our mind on cope

    Trust and Believe

    Breathe in and out with the thought in being relieved

    God is in control

    That is one who we should all take ...

    Among the Mountains and Rivers

    Horseback riding from Sunrise to sunset

    MOUNTAIN HIGH

    Endure in the challenge

    It’s being determined in leverage

    Endurance in pouring strength

    Being devoted at every length

    Climb Up Climb Up

    Think on the Mountain Top

    Pausing only for a moment

    Courage established

    Committed to do it

    Preparation for the task

    It won’t be easy, and certainly no dash

    But your mission will be clear

    Ruled out will be fear

    Go tell it on that Mountain

    The energy like a flowing fountain

    The voice of conquest in echoing out

    Your emotion that will be moving about

    Mountain high and wide, I am devoted to reside

    VAULT WISE

    Treasure of dreams

    Vision of refreshing streams

    More than silver and gold

    At least that is what I was told

    Unlock the goodness being virtues

    It’s not just the treasure chest

    Vintage behind representing the crest

    The pioneers of essence

    The shine outlining the sequence

    Time through the years

    Unlock, again in what could be a surprise

    Fortune of wealth

    Wills arranged during pain from poor health

    Value within monetary

    Fame at the moment

    Vault that has revealed the quality

    The heart that was filled with solidarity

    PAINTING OF DARKNESS

    Capturing the picture perfect moment, and with the act of Death in remembrance. Back in Salem, Massachusetts in 1850, a man with talent for the arts, but the urge of Death in reality. This man was Samuel Bloodstone. He painted what he saw and felt, and with the idea of murder in portraying the depth of his work, and with the variations of color and contrast seen through the flowing brush.

    ANGUISHED

    Full of destiny

    Pride Within

    Let me take a moment to think

    Despair is my cry

    There is no hope to even try

    Deep in my own sorrows

    I have no tomorrow

    Hours are times of my still

    So I cry again and again

    I thought I would overcome

    But all I got was none

    Fulfillment feels like a far off distance

    It doesn’t come in an instance

    Hours beyond the seconds

    Beckons on Reckons

    Torn beyond repair

    Life certainly isn’t fair

    But do you or anybody really care?
