Thoughts borrowed from a Truckstop ...

I'm not exactly sure ... why ...
but as I hold my own private vigil for Madiba ...
I ...
find ... I always come back to the moment of dance ...
which is what ... brings me here ...
here ... where always ... thoughts ... are free ...
and then ... and then ...
I somehow hear the voice of Cesaria ...
which first ... I heard here ...
how she would sing for him ...
how she ... would offer him her hand ...
how ... as she sings ...
she ... and he ... would 
step upon ... the world's dance floor ...
and teach us ...
all ...
they know ...
all ... 
they ... have always ...
known ...
all 
they dance for us ...
all they hope ...
we all will see ...


Madiba ...
the world is here beside you now ...
know ... it is time ... for you to dance ...
to dance this time ...
for ... yourself ...

Gads. Holy Moly. Howdy.

I just now mentioned You.

Truck Stops are so Social.

You pick up good woman.

`

Dance wherever we be.

Dance if nailed to a tree.

Forgive nasty ill/ilk folk.

`Um are duh base dude.

Sit in pickup at meadow.

View Monarch Butterflies.

Birds dance in Blue Skies.

I see aaaa1lies aloft above.

You float in cumulous clouds.

You Care Shows Beautifully.

I'll Hold that Sacred Vigil.

Madiba . . . O, Blessed.

`

I just visited Open Salon.

`

`

OCH PC: Our Tree

I Stop Off, and come to:

Our Salon, and say` Hi.

We pick meadow flowers.

We'll pluck flower petals.

O, love Anna,

and neighbors.

Perhaps, Art, the dance ...

the vigil dance ...

is it to Aaron Copeland's music ...

is one of butterflies ...

and clouds ...

and ...

the loveliest ...

of wildflowers ...

somehow I hope ...

Madiba ...

knows ...

and reaches for Cesaria's hand

as she sings ... 

her song ...

Thanks anna1lies.

No worry about stuff.

Nature delivers from pest.

Nature be comfort,

and also the potent avenger.

We fellow wayfarers.

We marvel what can't be told.

If nasty fate sweep on a head.

People become an insane beast.

If try to live right Fate is ally,

and Justice will shake creeps,

and Terror will discombobulate.

anni1lies - No worry. Be peace.

What a lovely way to begin a day, to find anna1liese and Art poetically dancing.

Art ... Phyllis ... peace ... and dancing ... poetically ...

I wonder, Madiba ... if music ... is there with you ...

if your hands are clapping with the beat ...

if your feet are tapping along ...

do you sense the hand reaching for yours ...

inviting a dance with all the stars ...

a dance to help us all to see ...

the smiling of your eyes ...

the peace ... a heart ... 

may give ...

candle's flame glows here for you

and in hearts round all the world ...

when you are ready, Cesaria's voice ...

and always ... always ... dance ...

`

PleASE?`

May I do ` a ` bang ?

It's a tambourine` bang.

It just a soft `love` taps.

I got a India` drum` goat

skin's` drummer` beats,

and  we ` bang` hips,

and` we` sense` purity.
