Better Bridges










BUILD  BETTER BRIDGES

Build  the BRIDGE
A God’s eye is watching you !

BRIDGE all Trouble
As peaceful water can flow under old bridges

TROUBLE can Calm
As God’s hand takes yours with guidence

CALM with Stones
As a life scape holds us together and foundations form

STONES will Build
As quiet water flows and new plants grow

BUILD your refections
As peace nurtures life through abundance of love

REFLECT on Bridges
As old walls are broken with building mutual respect

OLD and NEW 
Show us the reflected photo 
of
 BETTER 

 CONTINUOUS CONNECTIONS

Words Fly







Here and Now

Listening to words
Hearing words 
we need to understand 
The Good and Bad…the TV we see 
Words that shimmer and/or punch
Upset the brain, not a great lunch!

Sometimes we all need
A bubble to hear the thoughts
Behind the words, we heard 
Some concepts obscured! 

What actions are implied
past, present, and future
By the words

What are the interior spaces
Filled with ?  
behind the words 
we
think we know but.... Maybe? No?

The thoughts...
at the brink 
of looking down and up
 at the same time!
No reason or rhyme.
Words should sing a song to fill us up.
Hard edged reactions can still rise
Reactions surprise!

I grab the thoughts in the air 
everywhere!
What will work today and future time
Doesn't always rhyme
What will work in generations to come
Must be done 

Where we all live
Love will help us give.
Here and now
Love will find how!

Not the strange and hard choices at hand,
But the larger ideas behind them
Constitutional Concerns

Must stand

A Basic Rule

A Peace of Soap




Clean up this mess with multicolored hope
Lack of compassion
So we need a better soap

Peace is not the lack of war 
lack of confusion
Is what We are looking for

To stand side by side in the center of the rage
Lack of connection
But willing to start on a new blank page

Peace can come home when no one needs fame
Lack of competition
Understanding and education is the name of the game

This World will not be free from violent action 
Lack of corruption 
Is The desired and necessary reaction

Clean up your mess you were taught in school
Lack of cooperation
Is against  the "work together on this" rule

Helpful Stars

Connecting The Stars

Some time I wonder
Sometimes I think I know
What do I really want
Where will life go?

Love and friendship are 
on top of the list
I have this and give this
so what have I missed?

Some connection is waiting
to be hooked  that is true
I don't know what now,
what I should do?

Life is deep 
and full of option
So stars help me find
the true connection

Colore Collide A painting in progress




This large oil is from memory of colors and shapes and movement!!



I have been working on the Colors Collide 
painting from the Grand Canyon raft trip

The back rocks and the right rocks now have more then a background color
Next is work on the left side

Hills And Biking Up

Quilting

The fabric of life
There are wrinkles and folds
Causing biker’s hill strife
There are rocks and hills in canyon molds

Difficulties give us ladders to the stars

Sometimes I might think to suggest
Life would be better if it were flat
Then biking up would not bring breathing protest
But life is not meant to be like a tumbling mat

Difficulties tightly tie the quilting strings

We would miss there vistas that now abound
Loosing life’s ups and downs—-not a chance
Where would the wind bounce to make it’s sound
How would the canyon show its color dance

Difficulties help us sing our song

So I am grateful for the hill and rock mixture
Grateful for the canyons, hills, valleys, and oceans
Painting, biking, family and friends give life's quilt texture
Stitching life’s challenges with the threads of motion



Difficulties are the backing that makes life’s quilt strong

(AND put gray hair where it does not belong !!)
