I pray for the day when ‘we’ and ‘them’ becomes ‘us’.
A silly little bird
Is flitting round my brain.
I fear it may do damage
My memories it may drain.
But wait a bit I’ve got it wrong
So typical of me.
The silly tit’s a song
And he’s singing just for thee.
The words go back and then go forth
Just like a bird in flight.
I hear the tune so clearly now
My memories they are tight.
I love the song this birdie sings
A gentle misty tune.
If only all could hear his song
Of peace and love and soon!
A single thought can change the world. If it is the right thought.
In silken shoes
Jumped a jet.
Funny fled a funeral
Cuz there really
Was no fun.
Witty walked on water
As he whisked
Humour hunkered down
At home but still
We’re holding hope.
Now Crazy crashed
A cop car and Corny
Foolish tackled Funny
As they fought for
And Dizzy’s feeling
She dips on down
Daft is doing
I have a hunch.
So to end this
I have one thing
Smile and laugh
Each every day
And hate will stay
Time and distance cannot diminish true affection.
Don’t you just love it when circumstances force you to do what you wanted to do anyway?
Maturity is overrated.
Laughter has the power to breach barriers.
Simple word. Easy to say. Maybe not so easy to do. Oh wait! What does it actually mean? Well, it means: things that are similar as in the same kind of music, the same kind of people. It also means to be nice, to be considerate or helpful. That is the tough one.
Kindness is not a fashion statement from a bygone era, it is not an archaic anachronism that has no place in modern society. It is the means by which we will survive and flourish. “Survival of the fittest!” was the battle cry from Darwin but he wasn’t the first to broach it. As a bare concept it has merit. Stronger organisms preclude extinction. Except that is only the first step.
Few species survive alone. Some do but even they must come together to procreate. If you look around at the rest, they are in groups. It is easier to find food, to raise young and for protection. In order to survive as a species, there needs to be cooperation.
Kindness is a human concept we often attribute to the animal kingdom. Watch the tenderness elephants show to each other. Along with the fierceness when the group is threatened. Watch adult lions play with their cubs. We could learn a lot from observing that animal kingdom. But we see ourselves as the apex predator, the boss. We are not. Individually we could be taken out by many creatures. (and occasionally are!) It is only our technology that gives us the upper hand. And we don’t play fair.
We kill from a distance with powerful weapons or slowly by eroding habitat and poisoning the air and water. We really don’t play fair. One-on-one, we would lose. The animal kingdom has adapted itself for survival in the world. We have adapted the world to suit us.
How we live in that world is how we will flourish. Be kind. We are all in this together. There are those who believe in the survival of the fittest and they will die alone, as the fittest. But it takes a village to raise a child, to have a life. If all you want is the trophy, then take it. We need to get back to living.
The path to a better world starts with you and the person next to you.

Retired from the University of Texas and too old to play soccer anymore. Now, in the twilight of his years, time is spent writing in this blog, hiking and exploring Texas Parks, photography, working out, gardening and tending to the five ponds he built .
Rants, humor, sarcasm, and a haiku-like substance? It's hard to know what's going to come out of our minds next.
