The Fish Song -- a collaboration

get up everyday
bacon and eggs
skip the coffee
and I’m on my way…

it is what it is
oh, it is what it is

to the docks
sun rising
my sweet sue
and I’m on my way…

it is what it is
oh, it is what it is

blowing a gale
from the west
lifting my nets – and hoping for the best
and I’m on my way

it is what it is
oh, it is what it is


through the brake wall
tied up to the dock
to ma and pa’s
and I’m on my way

it is what it is
oh, it is what it is

heading home to my recliner chair
home-cooked meal
on a TV
tray
and I’m on my way

it is what it is
oh, it is what it is

sitting on my porch
sun-setting
sweet bud in my hand
and I’m on my way

it is what it is
oh, it is what it is
it is what it is
oh, it is what it is

His Pond -- a collaboration






what He saw
was not what
I found

I had looked
with a hopeful
heart

in an eastern
direction
contemplating
His mysteries

and I found
something
not utterly
destroyed
but
completely
changed

and,
now
I am captivated
by thoughts

does “nature”
still exist
anywhere?

does pure
God-light
and
God-sound
live?

or is every place
corrupted
by
human-kind?

have we destroyed
God
while seeking
independence?

Is there
nothing left
untouched and
unspoiled?

and if there is
something - someplace
still out there….

can I find it?

and if there is
nothing - noplace
still out there….

can I live without it?
