Where I originate from
Before establishing myself
At my
Present surroundings.

Sunrise was between
5:00 and 5:30AM
Now itís 7:00Am.

I am exiting my residential
To visit who else?
My Doctor of cause.

For the last few days
Iíve been feeling
Like a hypochondriac
Woke a few days ago, not feeling
Too perky.

I stopped for a traffic light
It was red
The skies were gray
Dawn had stolen the night away
Gloomy some might say.

But I havenít waken
To a gloomy day
Since I woke up one beautiful
After a heart attack
Quite a few years back
And it was raining.

The light just turned green
So Iíll continue day dreaming
Narrating my observation
To no one there.

Of this lovely morning
Between clouds of gloom
Long are the finger protruding
Of bright orange hues.

Reaching out towards me
As if the Lordís Giant Hand
Was about to grasp the world
Before me.

I pray what I am witnessing
Is not an evil omen
For today, is the memorial
ďOf 911Ē

"... finger protruding of bright orange hues..." could be God is reminding/admonishing us begin to dwell on what we have, rather than what we had. To Him we need to give thanks and praise.

The only think we can do is pray
Its almost imposable not think about this
Tragedy and all the pain tears of that moment when
Many hearts skipped a beat!
Beautifully written Ode
Love Peace and hugssss to you my friend....Morning Star

I have been trying to not think about 9/11, but it was too difficult. I had sadness surrounding me all day yesterday. I believe that we MUST move on from this..we must celebrate life, and live in this world of uncertainty and try to make it a better place to live. Loving, healing, and helping others to our best ability, from this day forward!
Peace, Love, and Light, my dear, dear, friend,

I felt this grip my heart, as well. Powerful...powerful...yes.

I had a moment, a long one of rage and I wrote what George Carrol said from one in a very dark mode.
I am fed up that we got so many memorials and too little celebrations.
Perhaps, we need to take a sabatical and stop trying so hard to teach how to swim to a drowned man.
With you brother, all the way.
