Colors Of The Wind

You think I'm an ignorant savage
And you've been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don't know?
You don't know ...

You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you'll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

QUOTE(iiluu @ Mar 12 2008, 10:57 PM) *

Welcome to the real world smile.gif


I�m beginning to understand.
I saw a sign once
outside a church. It said
Are you really living
or just walking around
to save the expense of a funeral?

I didn�t know
that Love is real life,
and everything else
just a more or less entertaining way
of dying.

And I didn�t know
that Love is like nothing on earth.

Love isn�t what you fall in.
It�s what pulls you out
of what you fall in.

Love isn�t a good feeling.
Love is doing good
when you�re feeling bad.

Love means hanging in
when everyone else
shrugs their shoulders
and goes off to McDonalds.

Love means taking the knocks
and coming back
to try to make things better.

Love hurts.
It�s its way of telling you
that you�re alive.

And the funny thing is that after all
Love does feel good.
People say Love is weak.
But love is tougher than hate.
Hating�s easy.
Most of us have a gift for it.

But Love counts to ten
while Hate slams the door.
Love says you
where Hate says me.

Love is the strongest weapon
known to mankind.
Other weapons blow people up.
Only Love puts them back together again.

And everything that seems real,
that looks smart,
that feels good,
has a sell-by date.
But Love has no sell-by date.
Love is Long Life.
Love is the ultimate preservative.

I don�t know too much about Love
but I know a man who does,
up there on the cross
loving us to death.

Love is the key
to the door of the place
he�s prepared for you
in the kingdom of God.

If you�re beginning to understand
then welcome to the real world.

Noorie, thanks a lot for all the poems that you have posted,such a beautiful collection.. smile.gif

part out of longing, part daring my self,
part to see that
widening of the world,

part to find my own, my secret
hiding sense and place, where from afar
all voices and scenes come back ...

.....................................


Therefore it was surprising that, as we kept the newspapers from Mother,
She died feeling responsible for a disaster unverified,
Murmuring, in her sleep as it seemed, the ancient slogan
Noblesse oblige.

.......................................

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!


.......................................


you join the herd at once
and almost proudly run to the slaughter house.
You're the strangest creature on earth


.......................................


Thanks smile.gif


Pinkz, thanks so much! love.gif This is one of the few threads that I know where I won't be unwelcome.
Catch 22, my gratitude to you.


I feel the same noorie, what a great thread.. smile.gif
you are most welcome everywhere noorie smile.gif


Catch is a great guy. I wish he hadn't gone away.

Pinkz, about that "welcome" bit, I am not so sure. That's why I don't visit other people's threads anymore.



I agree 100% sad.gif

Thanks a million for all the beautiful poems you have posted noorie smile.gif


Catch..... smile.gif

Noorie.this is a wonderful poem...my favourite. Have you heard this song in Pocahontas ..It sounds so beautiful in Vanessa William's voice..thanks smile.gif

There to Here

by Lauriel Mariondatter



You ask me how we got from there to here,
And you tell me you can't remember,
And so I'll answer it for you,
Though perhaps not the way you want me to.


We got from here to there on the back of a unicorn racing through our dreams,
We got from here to there when night's silence thundered between us,
We got from here to there believing a song to be
stronger than the worlds pulling us apart.


And we were right.


We stood in good relation to the earth,
We stood in good relation to the gods,
We stood in good relation to all that was beautiful,
You see, we were Alive


We got from there to here when we believed reality to be stronger than love,
We got from there to here when we forgot to look up and believe that
gravity held no hold on our souls,
We got from there to here when we left our storybooks for some other distracting play,


And now I do not know my world,
And I cannot find my God,
And beauty dies,
Shut out in the cold.


And I believe we can get from here to there if we just believe,

And I believe we can get from here to there if you'll take my hand,
And I believe we can get from here to there - if only in our dreams,


And when you're dancing across the sky,
Somewhere between the stars and the moon,
Look for me by your side, I'll meet you with hands outstretched,
We'll go - from here to there, there to here, and back again.





You Were Always There

by Zac


Whenever I needed someone to talk to
You were always there.
My eyes filled with tears, my heart filled with pain, and
You were always there.
There was no time when I had doubt
to come to you because
You were always there.
I could see in your eyes you wanted to help, and that you really cared.



Whenever I was down and blue
You were always there.
No matter my problems, are what was wrong
You were always there.
Whenever I felt like nothing matters
You were always there.



Now your gone, and I don't know what to do
I close my eyes and think of you, and how
You were always there.
It's hard to look at the pictures, and get memories of you
Can you hear me now
At night I pray, and I speak to you
I guess you were right when you told me no matter how far you were
You would always be there.
I know one day I'll see you again, but till then I have to say goodbye



Even though it hurts to hear your name, and speak of you
One thing I will always say is
You were always there.






"The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen,
nor touched...but are felt in the heart."


Far, very far, into the world of the farthest beyond
My hope carries me and places me
On the sweetest lap of the unknown.
There i behold my self-form
In the Dance-Delight of the Absolute

Some to Misery are born
Every morn and every Night
Some are born to sweet Delight
Some are born to Endless night

A sweet little poem.

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow" I say! "I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir," "Jim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.

An Angel Dancing

by Kevin Nakao Nanaumi

My heart raced when i saw you dancing.
the movements you made, so swift, so graceful,
it was like your feet never touched the ground.

twisting and turning, as if you were dancing on ice.
your beauty lit up the room
as if a million spotlights were turned on at the same time.

every step you took, brought a tear to my eye.
every smile you made, made my heart throb.
every word you say, makes me speechless.

i need some time, to catch my breath,
because you took my breath away
...the moment i saw you dancing.

On the sweetest lap of the unknown.
There i behold my self-form
In the Dance-Delight of the Absolute
