“I would love if my blogger family will reach out to someone new…or someone old a blogging friend you admire…and ask them to do a poetic duet with you.  On April 25th I will showcase all the duets you ping back here to this post”. Here is her link to the challenge http://hastywords.wordpress.com/2013/04/14/help-me-celebrate/

The above is Hasty’s request for her one year anniversary in blogging and I was more than happy to meet the challenge

My duet was done with the very talented http://kipwalkin.wordpress.com/ and sinse we wrote this just today April 22

My birthday (: and also earth day I thought it appropriate to metaphorically write

about the world, the love in it and the lack of love for it

Waste not what love has spilled

 From Kentucky to Pennsylvania

 With love filled thrills

 The world has measured me weird

Like the clouds cover the sky

And the sunlight pierces the scene

This feeling gets me so high

And engulfs me from within

Loves river overflow and this tide won’t let us show

The places love has taken us

 

Only

Spirits

 

Only spirits dare to go

The unrelenting dynamics

In the workings of love within the heart

Steers the intangible mechanics

Of undying passions through sacred parts

Weird as it may seem

When tranquil

 Thoughts grow wings

And depart to paths serene

Away from the dirt reality flings

Only God can set this scene

That covers the earth so green

Adam and Eve began to scheme

The love I am speaking of

Has become an evil dream

 

EVIL GREEN (POETRY)

Hunts men search this thing out

Looking for the pot of gold

We have been warned

From biblical times

This story is centuries old

 

Try as you may

To hunt this thing down

And watch evil events unfold

Don’t ignore

The evil this green can bring

It’s a trick that’s ancient and cold

 

It’s a spirit

You can’t see it or hear it

It wants you tapped into your greed

God said be anxious for nothing

He said he will provide all that we need

It will trap you

Before you trap it

So don’t be fooled by this scheme

It will keep you sick

Weary and tired

Chasing an American dream

 

If you look back on all who hunt it

You’ll see how lonely they sit

This thing can be deceptive and mean

Be careful when you focus on it

 

Beware of this thing

Warning signs are hard to be seen

But this thing is clever and keen

It will have you believe

You’re on top of the world

I call it the evil man’s green
