"For Charleston & Savannah" _ new September poem ---{@

"For Charleston & Savannah" _ new September poem ---{@

Etched in stone left alone 

Centuries old foundation 

Many trains have left the station

Ways we swayed & roamed

Memories are poetry

Bob Weir's Gifts as Guitarist & Singer: Creatively Creating Space & Time


-----{{@


My response to Bobby's (Bob Weir's) Facebook post = video of rehearsal for "Going Down The Road Feeling Bad" with Avett Brothers :

https://www.facebook.com/BobbyWeir/videos/1716649375015019/


-----{{@


Fantastic! Wonderful rendition Bob Weir and I love how your guitar solo really showcases your genuine genius in voicing & phrasing playing creating space (what busy poets & musicians need keeping tight schedules with the public and all)! But I've also noticed you not only have the gift of creating space with your guitar playing but with your singing too -- it reminds me of how Thelonius Monk would play with time & space playing piano -- and not a lot of players can play along with that kind of play as a lot of players think every single measure has to be filled-up with notes (fast & hard). But, you, Bobby! "go, Bobby, go!" .... after a RatDog gig in Pittsburgh in Burgettstown, Pa where my buddies Rusted Root opened for you I caught a glimpse of you after your show in your dressing room and you were smoking a cigarette and there was the Elvis "gun slinger" Andy Warhol silver screen print canvas behind you = And that was one of the most memorable rock & roll moments in a pretty good life filled with pretty good moments that I will never ever forget! Thanks Bobby and #KeepOnKeepingOn

Hilton Head Audubon Society _ In Loving Memory Of

In-Loving Memory! Thanks for everything! I'll always remember!

"A Vibrant Awakening of Memories" my published book w/ nursing home residents


I've included a picture of the book cover that my employer Mother Teresa Hospice / Progressive Home Health has just published (literally 2 days ago it was completed) comprised of selected poems I wrote with local area nursing home residents from when I started doing the poetry workshops January 31, 2016 - December 2016 which also includes testimonials form residents, family members of residents & staff members at the facilities. 


- in my Pittsburgh Poetry Workshops I conduct around greater metropolitan #Pittsburgh for long term care nursing home residents where we read and write poetry together - I have used many triggers to engage + stimulate memory & new ideas including by referencing Stephen Foster, reading his bio & playing his music. I've also referenced the Chatter Box at the William Penn Hotel and how Count Basie was broadcasted live from there to the world and I've used his music as well as other hot & sweet big band music such as "The Old LampLighter" and "The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy."

New August Poem _ The Dream Machine for 18+ _ August 2017

New August Poem _ The Dream Machine for 18+ _ August 2017

Old script ideas dripping in salacious controversy

Written with the impetuousness of youth

Tucked away in books for a rainy day - perception that's not reality - until the doors of perception are cleansed

In theme and on paper burnt away like a dream

Legally disposed of so no one can judge and scream

Now we can see how things really are - infinite in all directions

The Mistrial

The Mistrial


Waves in the pool
Placated by lawyers
Warriors and all is cool
Still the poet needs
Love and affection
In the real sense
No heckling and mocking
No spitting and biting
No beaten purple
Not raped by half of
The county gone mad

The Curse on D.C. ...

The Curse on D.C. ...


Dionysian devoted Gods may have put a curse on D.C. as the 100% natural way of defense of Dionysus non-participatory Vs ill wishers & doers

Dionysus came down from the mountains into Georgetown leaving the wild mountain nymphs - who then spied on him for his own goodness & caught

Caught those who looked like catalogue counterpoints of stalking the rugged looking beautiful radiant Dionysus with ill intent


P.S.


No one in D.C. bathtub bubble saw Donald J. Trump coming, huh?! ??? ...Who saw it
