Imagine And You Can Foretell The Future   Leave a comment

Imagine . . .

pictures not seen
words not read
voices not heard
skins not touched

. . . now, imagine seeing the future.

Imagine . . .

artists not painting
poets not writing
singers not singing
lovers not embracing

 . . . now, imagine seeing the future.

Imagine . . .

a rush of wind coming down
from the mountaintop –
if you listen,
you can foretell the future

 . . . now, imagine seeing the future.

Imagine . . .

staring at a canvass
brush in hand
listen to yourself
you will paint the future

 . . . now, imagine seeing the future.

Imagine!

Imagine An End Table With Genitalia   Leave a comment

Imagine

Pictures not seen.
Words not read.
Voices not heard.
Bodies not touched.

Now, imagine an end table with genitalia.

Imagine

Artists not painting.
Poets not writing.
Singers not singing.
Lovers not embracing.

Now, imagine two drinks on an end table with genitalia.

John Lennon — Thirty Years Out   2 comments

“Where were you when . . .?”

Whether asked the question or thinking to yourself, we often recall years later what we were doing when we first heard of a sad happening. With today being the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death, thoughts on time and place are reviewed.  I was in my small apartment on a rainy cold night just off the campus of Western Kentucky University. If I had a TV, I don’t recall because I was usually listening to music on the radio.  Then, as now, music is a part of my daily existence, and the beauty of Lennon’s music is its ability to make you think and help you answer questions.

In December of 1980, Lennon had only recently turned forty, and I was about to reach the same age.  We shared little besides years of life and his music. Now, thirty years out I wonder what John Lennon would be like if he were still a part of our existence.  We both would be forty years into the age Lennon, as a young flower-child rebel, famously labeled, “Never trust anyone over thirty!”

Imagine

Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

 

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

 

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

 

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

 

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

May the spirit of John Lennon always be with us.
