    U R 1 of them R U not?
    I am and I couldn't give a jot
    4 I love writing prose
    I'm one of them, not one of those
    It's just the way I walk...... turkey-trot!

    When I say.... "you're one of those"...
    I mean in...the newest way of prose....
    Numbers/symbols/ 'breviations.....
    Thumbs that click with what sensations?
    Does the thumb express the heart
    That words of lovers might impart?

    I think not...I'm of the old school..
    Maybe, I'll be thought an old fool
    Still staying with the tender times
    When spoken words are said in rhymes
    Face to face or in a letter
    I reminisce...there's nothing better! val452.gif

    To reminisce....to meditate...
    perchance even to recall
    Is an escape route
    given to us all
    Take a moment of tranquility
    and share it with your kin
    immerse yourself in the

    Power That Lies Within  
     

    Ascend to Heaven through your internal self
    Follow not the ways of wayward man
    Leave not your intuition upon the shelf
    Do not resist the Master Plan.
    Superconsciousness should be your aim
    Let your soul direct your mind,
    These sham religions are all the same
    Pure sectarianism, and to each other, blind.

    Self realisation should be your goal
    Once attained, you're on your way,
    The first step is to know your soul
    Take that first step, now, today.
    Take the time to look at the inner you
    Through that window in your mind,
    Take the time to think your feelings through
    The right path is there to find.

    That path, it starts within you
    In your subconscious, buried deep,
    Meditation is your first clue
    Wide awake, and yet asleep.
    Awake, to the truth that is in your heart
    Asleep, to confusion and dismay,
    The Power will find you if you play your part
    Meditate with me, today.

    The Power that lies within you
    Is uncorrupted, strong and bold,
    It's there in every cell and sinew
    It is a miracle to behold.
    You hold the key to this power source
    Unlock the same ere it's too late
    You can reap the benefits of this wondrous force
    If you would but relax, and Meditate!

    Where do you come from daffyd?
    A world other..than that of me?
    You speak of things, I do not know..
    Master Plans that you behold
    Meditation? all I've done...
    Was sitting sunning in the sun
    Spreading on the greasy stuff
    Because my skin looked old enough!
    Your thoughts so far exceed those mine
    Can't comprehend your place in time
    You're beyond the words for me to find
    To enter your creative mind.

    Happy July 4th to you and to all of my American friends!USFlag.gif USFlag.gif USFlag.gif

    I am a citizen of the world,
    the spirit of equality,
    freelance, with my flag unfurled,
    surely you must see?
    A mind unfetted by worldly woes,
    a being of benign thought,
    well disposed to friend and foes,
    in the way I have been taught.

    Tutored in the 'hard knock' school
    over many many years
    In ways that were harsh, nay cruel
    Success to he who dares
    Tranquility has been my reward
    Meditation has brought me peace
    A home upon this Earth's green sward
    Will wonders never cease?

    Daffyd...
    I am having difficulty accessing this forum. I've tried time and time again and have had problems.... but I will continue to try to keep in touch. I got through now...but I don't feel positive about my access.

    Stay poetic and well and happy Daffyd...in case I never get back to you again.

    Much love,
    Willows

    I wrote my reply in trivial verse
    With each line the poem got worse
    When I reached line twenty two
    The whole poem disappeared from view
    An original script, a work of art
    Bemoaning the fact that we might part
    Let me now reach out, for we cannot linger
    Vertually hold your hand, kiss each finger
    And thank you for your participation
    On behalf of our readers, and the Nation.
