Eerie Orange Harvest Moon
Ever calling me
Beckons children to the sea
Creates God’s brilliant night light
Enigmatic orb
Haunted perhaps
It matters not to this poet’s soul
How it fascinates me so
Perhaps someday I shall go…….

Madison Alabama
Startled by the alarm clock
Not usually one to be startled
An incredible dream
I’ll share it with you now
It was very late at night
I was cruising in a strange sedan across Mobile Bay
Golden and shiny like Halloween Glitter
Bob Marley blaring
I AM and i
The Bay Way Tunnel in the distance
Heading for a Convention
The boring 3 day kind
My last gig was still in charge back then
Corporate Babylon calling
“One good thing about music….when it hits….you feel no pain”
As I approached the orb entrance
Sweet Port City in my sights
Massive doors blocked my path
The garage door type
The flipping tunnel was closed Man
Not one to dally on quick decisions….I gunned it
Smashing through the forbidden access
I awoke to law enforcements finest
Was quickly whisked away in handcuffs
To our Corporate Headquarters
Not a scratch on me
So many questions flying
I can’t make out their words
Just music………beautiful music
My colleagues and business leaders surrounded me
Defending me
Coming quickly to my aid
Attorneys and Politicians huddled
I was released after the fine was paid
$2,600.00 for the door
What about the car I asked
They gave me the usual “Bill you’re crazy” look
I was escorted to a long black limo
As I pulled away from the scene I was suddenly stopped again
The very same group of lawmen
They informed me that Gwen
(Gwen knows who she is) 
No need to dig up old Scottsboro dirt
Had also rammed the door with the company pick-up truck
They handed me the bill for her fun
$14K and some change
Apparently the entire engine fell to the ground in a heap
It was at this very moment I awoke
I’ve no idea the meaning of this dream
But good job Gwenny……….

From a very dear friend..........

"I don't know a soul who's not been battered, I don't have a friend who feels at ease...I don't know a dream that's not been shattered, or driven to its knees. But I'm alright...I'm alright. Just weary to my bones. Still, when I think of the road we traveled on I wonder what's gone wrong. I can't help but I wonder what'...s gone wrong"~

Wherever He leads me.
If I flow it Will you read it? Will you feel it As I bleed it? Because you see I need it To justify my trip My words A pointed tip Dipped in sacred blood Precursor To the coming flood A gift from God My KING A beautiful thing To serve His higher cause I'm not seeking vain applause Simply Clarity For this lost world to see His grace Sweet charity Unconditional love And peace My ultimate release SELAH…….
