I'm a musician..record stuff..got a little studio..anyway..

some stuff..

Post-Modern Lemonade
(Words)
©2008 words and music by Jeff Cole

Words of love and words that go to far
Words that nail that feeling in your heart
Words that ramble on like melody
Streams of consciousness that speak in me.

Words of promise, words of sympathy
Words that change from what they used to mean
Words that try to hold you in their arms
Sticks and stones got nothing on their harm.

I’m shaking to my core
I need to call my brother
And let him tell me
That I’m not alone anymore.

Words of death and words that give you life
Cuts the soul from spirit like a knife
Words that comfort and that are words that are never said
That could have helped but you bled instead.

Words for thirsty riddles and theories made
Like a glass of post-modern lemonade.

I’m shaking to my core
I need to call my sister
And let her tell me
That I’m not alone anymore.

more stuff can be heard

AHA! That track was slick Jeff. I liked it. :)

ok, I had written that it sounded a little like Depeche Mode, which I think it did a little...but then I got this Doors vibe from it...

A bit of poetry:

Wild Casts a Shadow
Wild casts a shadow upon the Soul's terrain
And leaves one staying for awhile,
Pondering its imprint on the heart.
A cage is never big enough for the wild heart
And this world is too big for those who live trapped.
But no, this world is not meant for such as you.
Where the wild beasts run for cover
Tuck and cover
Tuck and cover
They run for their very lives
As we clean and sterilize
And erase the imprint of God Himself
In every way imaginable.
Moving past the wild places
Daring not to stare into the wild faces
Of the many forms of wild that God allows.
Wild casts a shadow upon the Soul's terrain
And leaves one staying for awhile
Pondering its imprint upon the heart.
A white feline silhouette is cast against the black
Backdrop of the longing heart.

Thanks Ransom.

The imagery reminded me why the body of Christ needs to be an organic inclusive place where everyone is allowed to fit in and participate. No one man's vision is expansive enough to let God be the creative God He is in us and thru us.

I especially like the ending with the cat, unwilling to bend to anyone's will, having it's own longings as the nature of it's being.

Beautiful.

This has been my frequent experience.

Pride's Mirage

And pride grew strong across the page,
Letter by letter,
Stroke after stroke,
It grew bolder, more exalted, inflated,
Until its presence was evident to all who read;

And then,
The pen ran dry.
The author cried-
He pushed, pressed and scribbled
To no avail;
The letters died.

The noble pen lay still,
Upon the iridescent page;
Sobs rose,
Growing, reverberating;
Room filled,
As the author's humbled heart tore.

The Master refilled the straight pen,
As the hallelujah's rose thru the atmosphere;
The author began anew,
Writing gracefully the one thing He always found true:
That all pride is vain,
All glory should joyously go,
To the One for whom,
Holiness is His middle Name.

So many things try to define us. Which do we surrender to? Who are you? We are bought with a price..., we are not our own, but God's idea. This is our pleasure; and greatest treasure.


God's Idea

I am God's idea.
Not the result of blind chance,
Not even my mother's or my father's idea;
But God's;
The Creator of all good things,
The One who has made life to grow & blossom,
Into something beautiful,
Something different, something unique;
Something called His special handiwork.

I'm not even my own idea-
I can't control & direct life,
I lack real vision of how things work,
I can't even shape myself.

But God has chosen me,
And is shaping me;
As this day's weather is different from the last,
So is this day unique,
Unlike any other-
With its own special thrust,
Seeking all that God has purposed to create in me,
Revealing His beauty majestically.

I like Your idea Lord,
Its better than anything I could have come up with on my own.
May this day be more of Your idea fulfilled in me;
I choose to be Your idea.

I find camping to be such a wonderful experience of God's world.


Creation’s Glory Song


Once again,
In the stillness of the mountains –
Experiencing the world more like how You made it.
Awesome!!!
Unending beauty,
Pure delight,
It makes life feel,
Just right.

The trees as arrows,
Straight and true,
Pointing into a sky pure blue.
These tall sentries majestically call to all –
“Worship Him who is above all,
Creates all, maintains all, and fulfills all.
WORSHIP Him!”

The camp fire’s joyful dance,
Unending ecstasy,
Peaceful exploding delight,
Energy released from deadness,
The mystery of the warmth of Divine Love,
Released from our deep wounds,
GLOWING into an intense penetrating radiant heat;
Transforming strong love
Prepares our lives,
A feast fit for the King of All Life.
Fire’s natural, beautiful, intense testimony
Of our life story.
Dancing heart goodness of God!

Sweet sleep soon comes,
With soothing background sounds –
Even in rest we are blessed.

The moon retreats and the Spirit sings –
“It’s time to get on your feet!
Go and see your Father’s Glory!”
I look to see,
The night sky’s pure beauty.
Down by the river I reach a meadow;
Ringed with trees,
And a tall, bright, majestic rock face
Echoes the river on its far side.
A song rises from deep within,
To join the symphony,
Creation’s Glory Song arising.
Stars sparkle elegantly,
Constellations whisper their story,
As comets streak the black expanse,
Punctuating the song brilliantly.
The river sliding and diving over rocks and trees
Babbles the steady melody.
I stand humbled at the privilege to put words to
The Creation’s Glory Song.
My heart weeps joy through trembling lips -
His praises echoing everywhere.
The darkness slowly fades,
First light shimmering on the horizon
Signals the distant wolves’ ecstatic howling crescendo;
Restoring the peaceful silence,
As I walk into the new day
Returning to my small part of the Work,
Growing and maintaining God’s Kingdom;
The expanding Garden of Eden relationship.

Are You Among The Found?

You may find me in your eyes
as you look upon the world
and know you want to kneel and pray.

You may find me in your ears
as you listen to what the
brokenhearted have to say.

You may find me in your hands
as you do something for another
on any given day.

You may find me in your mouth
with one kind word spoken.

You may find me in your knees
with the strength to lift those
who are weary and broken.

You may find me in your feet
as you journey through the shadows.

You may find me in your mind
in those moments free from time.

You will always find me in your heart
for that is where the relationship starts.

My name is Love
and I Am with you always.
My name is Immanuel.

Thank you Ann. I will post a couple of others I have written over the journey of my life later tonight. I am busy being cleaner mum at the moment.

Was it you who posted the Sand Fantasy? - that was awesome!

I have enjoyed everything I have read and seen in this thread.
