Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe - Whitney Museum

For Monday,
A yt link I found by accident
Well, sort of.
I was looking again for more about Romany Marie
And what connected a cafe owner,
A visionary and playwrights, poets, mystics...
What do they all have in Common?

names

names

just names
said the little boy to the toad.

the toad's tiny brain
heating up, on overload.

but they called me a reptile,
a cold blooded pet.

just words
said the little boy,
you are my friend,
don't forget.

why do i remember most
what angers me so?

i don't know said the little boy,
come on, now let's go.

Mars Maven

Mars Maven

NASA's Mechanical Raven

Dispatched to the Red Planet Mars.

She puttered, persistent,
The engineers insistent,
She make it to study the Sky,

What's left of the air,
That was likely there,

Did it blow off in the Void?
Did it get knocked off by a 'Roid?

Or did our forefathers spoil
Mars' red soil,
And frack all the wells for
Some oil?

When that planet lost 
Atmosphere, and water froze up,
Earthbound were the settlers,
Leaving one question 

No this doesn't rhyme...


Have we learned?


One More Hoop 2


i was trying to illustrate the
process of applying for disability,
pensions earned by giving the best years of my physical life to work.
in spite of the fact that i have been a bureaucrat by trade,
the paperwork and hoops
seem
endless.

Do You Hear the Knocking?



Do you hear it knocking?

I couldn't leave only gaz stuff up on a Sunday.
Mom took me and later in adolescence dragged me to Sunday school, service.
In the 6th grade our new teacher had us study and compare religions.

I saw the thread in all peaceful religions....in spite of the human errors...

The Golden Rule 

When I saw Pope Francis eagerly waving in an open car in Albania,
well, I just had to post something...
The Pope tweets a lot...
I really liked this one.

Fall here,

First hard frost a few days ago.



Hills

Hills,

and Valleys

Streams,

Lakes, and puddles.

Terrain Sometimes Wet,

other times dry,

Yet during another chunk of time:

Frozen solid

So frozen, btw, 
bodies are not buried in winter in Vermont.

I have a small hill of gaz updates in my inbox.

Instead, tonight, keeping it simple.
High pressure gaz pipelines should not be run in Vermont,
through hills, valleys,
lakes, puddles,
and farms.

Robot, Robot

Robot, Robot,

Please Take care of me.
No back talk or sighing,
No aches, pains,
No crying.
No feelings to hurt,
When the MonSter 
Makes me curt.
Just an obedient custom
caring friend.



thx Kathy!

Jumping through Hoops

Jumping through Hoops

One after another,
hoops appeared,
Obstacles, challenges,
None of it made sense.

Wanted: Time Machine



Wanted:
Time Machine

Trying to post pictures from my phone
And just grinding my teeth over
Techno- Glitches
Sending me in a new direction.

Fred popped The Midnight Ramble Volume 3 in the
cd player,
I landed on this archival photo
We took in Woodstock, Vermont
Just before tropical storm Irene acted
Like a hurricane
And changed so many lives.

Then listening to Levon, his entourage,
Playing those songs so masterfully.

Where is that time machine?

Gentle, cloudy, cooler days,
Signal winter's start

HAPPY Birthday Dad,
I wanted to do so much for you,
And didn't do much,
Except think of you often,

Like always,
Love,

Used to

We used to sit
Around
The kitchen table,
Arguing about
Pretty much
Anything
