A beautiful woman uses her lips for truth, her voice for kindness, her ears for compassion, her hands for charity, her heart for love, for those that dont like her, she also uses prayer....

I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive,
I could be in a car crash, and still be alive.
The clouds could fall out of the sky,
The oceans could disappear, and all turn dry.

These things in life are all bad I know,
but there's far worse things,
just thought you should know.

Life would not be the same without someone like you,
You're there when I need you to help me through.
Through the good times and through the bad,
Be them happy, or be them sad.

I don't have to be with you, to know you're there,
We don't have to see each other, to know that we care.
We could be apart for years upon end,
and still remain the best of friends.

Life goes on, and people change,
And through it all, our friendship shall remain the same.
That's such as a life, and how things come to be.
Just thought you should know,
HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME...

... I luv you

Design

I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches' broth
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.

What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night?
What but design of darkness to appall?
If design govern in a thing so small.

Dark corners at midnight never end their pull
Magnetic punishments in shrill voice lash
In heaven heard part, in h*ll in full
With weary arms grappling and faithless mouth nash

Salvation, an hour of feeling whole
Bliss, a whole week of feeling enough
Enough,....enough? Estranged from my soul
Mirage freedoms but jokes, cruel bluffs

A sweet dream from so long and far fades gray
In dark corners at midnight,
Even sad songs won't play

(for Halloween..)

AUTUMN
by Grace Nerissa:

'Autumn came at the end of the summer
and rustled through all the trees
saying to itself ... in whispered tones

''I know just what to do with these''

Autumn took out a box of colours
and... now, that the leaves were old
it coloured each one to perfection in
In shades of red ..yellow .. and gold.

Wild Winds rushed down from the mountains
dancing with childish delight
chasing fallen leaves in a circle ..and
driving them up into flight.

A great harvest moon
shining bright ...as the disc of the sun ..

casting a pearly moonlight
down upon everyone.

Autumn fruits in abundance
In tiny shop window streets
piled high in all shapes and colours

Truly .... a visual treat.

Smiley faced pumpkins peeking ...
trying their best to hide
waiting to light up in splendour
on the blessed All Hallows night.

Ancient souls wandering the earth
Looking for a prayer
hoping SOMEONE would listen
wishing that SOMEONE might care.

The beautiful season is dying
Its hours numbered one by one
'Halloween'....... when the clock strikes Midnight ...

Autumn will have gone ....'

Love is not to say, but to understand..Love is not to share, but to feel inside..Love is not to find faults, but to embrace with the flaws..Love is not to demand,but to sacrifice..Love is not to hurt,but to take care..Love is not blind, but it doesn't need to see..

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread-and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness-
O, Wilderness were Paradise enow!

Some for the Glories of This World; and some
Sigh for the Prophet's Paradise to come;
Ah, take the Cash, and let the Credit go,
Nor heed the rumble of a distant Drum!...

-Omar Khayyam

New day,the sun comes up,A brand new day ready to take on what comes my way, each days a gift not to be wasted ,life is a drink that's got to be tasted,some days are good ,some days are bad, some days you're happy, some days you're sad, if you have a bad one, don't fill up with sorrow, you never know what will happen tomorrow.

HIDDEN AGENDA

The perpetual wait until a next day,a burning cinder a never ending hope
we are easily lost in a spiral of gloom or doom if we choose to wait in an empty room.
A glimmer of light can shine through a granite wall if we allow a tiny crack
A hidden rainbow can bring about hope,the beauty of life can be so blind.

We only take notice to the burning & the bleeding.so quick to react
Passing by the others ,it is not noticed when the struggle or blight is internal
So many feel they could be heroes,or one will save them leaving them intact
we never stare at their despair ,such simple feelings can hide a huge fact

When it's internal, casually hiding, maybe just laying in wait, never noticing normal
We may never ever fear until it's to late,sometimes more than beauty is laid on our plate.
Broken souls, feeling thrown about ,never knowing,rude & crude not being formal
Our eclipse or the dawn, that bright light, will the mind be at ease when it meets it's fate. Rick

Not sure if it's done,but needed a place to put it. do we ever really fully comprehend what a fine line we are trying to balance our lives on. Rick

Kubla Khan
By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Or, a vision in a dream. A Fragment.

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round;
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.
But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!
And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced:
Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher’s flail:
And mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
It flung up momently the sacred river.
Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
Through wood and dale the sacred river ran,
Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean;
And ’mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
Ancestral voices prophesying war!
The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!
A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
Could I revive within me
Her symphony and song,
To such a deep delight ’twould win me,
That with music loud and long,
I would build that dome in air,
That sunny dome! those caves of ice!
And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

Help Me learn so I know
when to stop and when to go
time to rest time to fly
or time to let the past go by
heal the pain heal the strife
enjoy the wonders of this life
sent from heaven up above
angels send this verse with love..

Flown in on the wings of a dove
probably fly out on buzzards of
the past, of this I just gest
we've had our day & passed the test
now ready to find peace and rest
in heaven with the rest of the best
Because of God's grace and forgiving
it's been a life well worth living.

She Was a Phantom of Delight

By William Wordsworth

She was a Phantom of delight
When first she gleamed upon my sight;
A lovely Apparition, sent
To be a moment's ornament;
Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair;
Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair;
But all things else about her drawn
From May-time and the cheerful Dawn;
A dancing Shape, an Image gay,
To haunt, to startle, and way-lay.
I saw her upon nearer view,
A Spirit, yet a Woman too!
Her household motions light and free,
And steps of virgin-liberty;
A countenance in which did meet
Sweet records, promises as sweet;
A Creature not too bright or good
For human nature's daily food;
For transient sorrows, simple wiles,
Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears, and smiles.
And now I see with eye serene
The very pulse of the machine;
A Being breathing thoughtful breath,
A Traveller between life and death;
The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill;
A perfect Woman, nobly planned,
To warn, to comfort, and command;
And yet a Spirit still, and bright
With something of angelic light.

The road to success is not Straight
there is a curb called Failure
a loop called Confusion
speed bumps called Friends
red lights called enemies
caution lights called family
You will have flats called Jobs
but if you have a spare called determination
an engine called perseverance
insurance called faith
and a driver called Jesus
you will make it to a place called Success!!!!!!

The Straight And Narrow

To walk a straight line
is not an easy task.
In the long run,
you will, most likely,
run into bumps and dips
that will try to
throw you off your path -
and they will mostly succeed.
The best thing you can do?
March back to that line,
get back on it, and continue.
Continue without the holding of grudges
or the seething of rage inside you.
To walk a straight line
is not an easy task.
You will stumble, trip, and fall
and you will want to be angry,
angry at those who did it,
and, over all, just want to give up, to quit.
But don't do it.
Because while to walk a straight line
is not an easy task,
in the end, to see what you have accomplished,
to see where you have ended up
from where you have started -
it's all worth it.

Found this on the net wanted to share,hope you like it!!

Dear Lord every single evening as I'm lying here in bed,
this tiny little prayer keeps running through my head.
God bless all my family,wherever they maybe,keep them warm and safe from harm,for they're so close to me.
And God there is one more thing,I wish that you could do,hope you don't mind me asking ,please bless my computer too.
Now I know that its unusual to bless mother board,but listen just a second while I explain it to you Lord.
you see that little metal box,holds more then odds and ends.
Inside those small compartments,rest so many of my friends.
I know so much about them,by the kindness that they give,and this little scrap of metal takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them,much the same as you,we share in what life brings us,and from that our friendships grew.
Please take an extra minute,from your duties up above,to bless those in my address book,that's filled with so much love.
where er else this prayer may reach,to each and every friend,bless each e-mail inbox,and each person who hits send.
when you update your heavenly list on your own C.D.Rom
Bless everyone who says this prayer.Sent up to God.Com Amen !!!!
