A_COSMIC_ CONNECTION

WHO? WHAT? WHY?

We each are but one grain of sand in a Universe, and yet, for some of us, we receive 'Communication' that appears to be offered from a Source other than Earth.

My personal communications arrive in Poem and Song

In more recent years, besides the more Philosophical poetry, poems relating to Thoroughbred Racing began to appear.

That Collection was then produced as a Book that featured each horse's poem displayed on an art graphic, with the photo appearing on the opposite page.

This book is a Poetic Tribute to some of Thoroughbred Racing Stars of recent years

The Book Title:
Ya Win Some ~ Ya Lose Some !

I am indeed Honored, that this book now sits
in some of the most Prestigious homes connected with Thoroughbred horse racing.

Direct book inquires to:

I offer no explanation as to How, What, Why

I accept the Automatic Writings as they channel through me, without warning, without editing, without question!


I have produced another book that is Unique in its style and began as a 21 verse ballad.

'THE MESSAGE'

This could be compared with Gilbran's
THE PROPHET ~ in its philosophical content
It contains 21 'Messages' each with an Illustration.

A CD Rom disc is available for a preview of the book, upon request to:

RUFFIAN333@Webtv.net

Both of my books are Non-Profit Labors of Love
I make no money on their sale other than to cover the cost of the printing & shipping!

Welcome To My World Of Poetry
For the Mind and Heart


WOULD THAT I

Would that I could be at Peace,
Within my own Illusion
Would that I could then, release
The Sum of my Confusion

Would that I could wander free
Into a Promised Land
Would that all my fellow man
Could try to understand

Would that I could free my Soul
Of Guilt, and Pain, and Fear
Could but I just comprehend
A way that is not clear

Would that I could see the Sun
On Any given day
And would that all the Rainbows
Would never go away !

Would that I could Understand
The Message I've been Preaching
Would that I could learn to live
The Ways that I've been Teaching !

Would that I could come to be
The Mirror of my Soul
Deceiving all illusion
With the Stars, My only goal !

Would that I could learn to live
The Truth I've tried to teach
Would that I could understand
The Path I've tried to reach

And would that I could reach the Stars
Through Ship, Or Soul, Or Mind
And would the Peace of mind I seek
Be All that I would find ?

DO YOU EVER?



If you're moving to the beat
Of the drummer down the street
Do you ever feel a rhythm of your own?

Do you follow like a sheep
Are you really half asleep
And is this the only way you've ever known?


  Do you ever give a thought
To the many  things you're not
Then, you wonder...
"Will it matter in the end?"

Do you ever really try
To open up your wings  and fly
Or, too afraid your broken wings won't mend?


Do you ever try to reach
Do you ever try   to teach
Do you ever even stop to question "Why?"

Have you wondered at the stars?
Have you pondered who you are?
Have you felt so all alone you wished to die?


Have you ever tried to "make it"
Have you ever tried to "fake it"
Have you ever tried so hard to win ~
Yet Lost!


Has your life been filled with taking?
Have you seen mistakes you're making? Have you ever even wondered at the cost?


Have you ever sat and cried,
When you knew that you had lied
For the truth was simply just too hard to tell!

It seemed easier that way
Seemed the  Cheaper price to pay
Till the lies have made your Mind
  A prison cell!


Do you make the most of living?
Do you take some joy in giving?
Do you share the knowledge that you've  Gained Alone?

For,   Down the Pathway you'll be led From your birthing till you're dead ~
Just a statement of the seeds that you  Have Sown!

THE RULER OF MY MIND

To be Footloose and Fancy Free
To Dance with Sun and Wind
To have the freedom to explore
The Pleasures, they call 'Sin'
For Love alone my Nature
And Love indeed my Will
To have Love as my Destiny
Within this life Fulfilled

I do not claim 'Perfection'
I only claim To Be
To live by Other's Standards
Is not the way for me !
I cannot be what others want
Or to Their goals aspire
My mind and body must be free
Exploring My desires

For, What is 'Right' for only You
Is fine, but can't you see
That what you found along your path
May Not be 'Right' for me!
To live by other's ways and means
Could never allow to be
The person who resides within
The total sum of Me !

For, I must approve my actions
As my mind will not be still
If other's impositions then
Descend upon my Will
" I Must Be Me! " ~ I tell myself
I look within to find
That Stranger deep inside of me
The Ruler of My Mind


" I Must Be Me" ~ I cry aloud
To ears that will not hear
And will not try to understand
What Some would find so clear
I cry alone in still of night
But Tears could never tell
The Pain and Desperation
From this planet and my Hell

What hurts the most I realize
Is a Truth that some may find
When the beauty of Illusion
Clouds the Mysteries of the Mind
"For, What Is Real, And What is Not?"
You may be heard to say
And if you find an answer
Then perhaps you've found your way

But if the 'Real' Becomes the Pain
Then look Within to find
The Inner Peace residing
In the Power of your Mind
For if you truly contemplate
The Universe and You
The Realization may come clear
That when this life is through ~

What really mattered most of all
When All was said and done
Was ~
Sing to the Moon
Dance with the Wind
And Love, with the Setting Sun !

ENVY THE BLIND !



Envy the Blind
The ones who can't see
Nor even influenced
By your Reality

For it matters not
If you're big or small
It matters not
To the blind at all!

For in those eyes
That cannot see
Lies a world beyond
Just you and me

A world beyond
All time and space
Where there is no creed
And there is no race.

For there is no space
And there is no time
Only the freedom
Of the mind

The freedom to Know
The Insight to Feel
To comprehend truth
To know what is real

For, the tone of your skin
Or the look on your face
The expressions you paint
Then simply erase ~

Are never quite seen
By the blind, as you know
For they cannot be watching
All the faces you show!

Instead, with the Wisdom
Found so deep inside
They discover the truth
You think easy to hide

And yet, they can sense
In a moment or two
The false from the true
That lies hidden in you

But, the way of the Blind
Is lonely indeed
For all that they want
And all that they need

Goes silently on
In a grief that they bear
In a world that can't know
Or even much care!

So unless you discover
What I choose not to tell
Of Reality's answer
To Heaven and Hell

You'll probably question
My own state of mind
And you won't understand
Why I Envy The Blind!

WHAT WILL YOU DO?



There's Rioting in Africa
There's Murder in Detroit
The Taxes that you're paying,
They're using to exploit

The money is used for Defense
At least that's what we're told
But, A Bomb can't feed a child
Or shelter all the old !

The Suffering, The Violence
The Hatred and the Greed
The Poor keep getting poorer
No one listens to their need ~

The KKK is in Georgia
And other places too
Ethopians are Starving
Is there something you can do?

Will you simply shrug your shoulders As you turn and walk away?
Will you just ignore the problems
That confront the world today?

There's people killing people
There's Hunger in the land
It only makes me question
The ''Brotherhood Of Man!''

The Murder of a Harp Seal
The Raping of a Nun
A Child in the Ghetto
Trying to steal a gun

There's people hurting Children
The Innocent and Small
It really makes me wonder
Is there Sanity at all?

So, What Will You Do To Help It End?
What Will You Do To Ease The Pain?
What Will You Do
To Help The Planet Mend?
What Will You Do, My Friend?

Assassinate a President?
Try to Kill the Pope?
It makes me ask the question
''Is there really any Hope?''

Instead of only Taking
Why can't people learn to Give?
Then, see Mistakes they're making
And Let the Planet Live!

So ~ What Will You Do To Help It End?
What Will You Do To Ease The Pain?
What Will You Do
To Help The Planet Mend?
What Will You Do....My Friend?

SEEK AND FIND

'Go Seek and ye shall Find'
Someone said so long ago
And so, I have been searching
In some ways you could not know

Go Seek and ye shall find
All the Answers that you'll need
In Life, to fully comprehend
Your every thought and deed

And so it is I'm seeking
For the answers in my mind
But the Seeking and the Finding
Are two different Paths, I find

For, the answers I discover
On the Path I choose to take
Don't always fit the questions
That my mind does choose to make!

For, As you search for Answers
To the things you Want to know
You'll find, that thrust upon you
Are the ones you Need to grow!

So, Seek and Find your answers
In your own and special way
Then maybe you'll discover
What I've tried so hard to say

(C) Sirius Lady

=======================================

THE SHEEP

Never inspecting their Values
Never admitting a Need
Never allowing a Thought of their Own
Never creating a Creed

They follow along Oh so blindly
Thinking, that somehow they've 'grown'
Never unearthing one reason
For all of the seeds they have sown !

Just drifting along on Life's byways
Repeating the thoughts Others tell
Never inventing the thoughts they say
Regarding a 'Heaven' or 'Hell'

Watching with eyes so Unwilling
To see that the way each must be
Is to seek out the Way & the Answers
To finding the Path of the Free!

Is it only the lonely they fear in the end
Or lack Courage to go out and find
The Keys to their own Inner Wisdom
The Door to their Own Peace of Mind!

(C) Sirius Lady

=================================

TOYS

Yesterday's Future, Tomorrow's Hope
Yet in their sorrow, they do grope
For the Love they need, in order to
Become Adults, like me, like you

Discipline is needed, This I do know
But the words that you Speak
With that slap 'down below'
Makes all of the Difference to a tiny mind
And, they'd understand
If, you'd just be Kind!

For they cannot help, if they Rant & Rave
Exhuberance, you label ' Misbehave!'
But the hurt that you cause
And the Pain that they feel
At times, to me, Just seems Unreal!

For, Communication, in a Gentle Way
With the things you do
And the words you say
Could temper the hurt, and ease their pain
And show, you'll always love them again

So keep in mind, as you raise your hand
To let them know, you understand
And, let them see all else above
That no matter what ~ There's always Love!

For Punishment is your's alone to choose
The choice is Guidance, or simply Abuse!
And remember
They're only just Girls and Boys
They may be your Children
But they are NOT Toys!

===================================

REGARDING FRIENDS

If all of the Glass in the World
Were suddenly to shatter
To cover the Earth
And then, A Hand reached out
To sprinkle only a few Diamonds
Throughout the Land

How great the Journey
Through all the Glass
To Discover just One Diamond
The Sifting, The Searching, The Finding

That is how I discover each Friend
Sifting and Searching through
All of the Glass
To Unearth just One Diamond

(C) Sirius Lady

COLORADO CALLS!

They're tearing down the Trees
And doing it very well
They're paving up the Planet
And, making my Heaven ~ Hell !

They're tearing up my Daydreams,
The sky is no longer Blue
They'll ruin all the beauty
By the time That they are Through!

Now, the sky is all Polluted
And the grass, No longer Green...
So take a look around you
To see just what I mean !

So I'm heading for The Mountains
And all my dreams to find
Not looking for the riches,
Just for My Peace of Mind !

Where the sky Is not polluted
And, the trees
Grow straight and tall
It's either Colorado ~
Or, it's just no place at all !

For, the people there are Genuine
They do not judge Your Face
They look right past Your Color
And, they don't condemn Your Race

For, It's what's inside That Matters,
And, not just Who you are
A Rich man ~
A Poor man ~
A Dreamer ~ Or A Star !

So, I hope to find
The Dream I want
And want the Dream I find!
For, If and when I find it
I will find My Peace Of Mind ~

For COLORADO Calls!

MOTHER NATURE'S TEARS


FROM THE SPARKING
AND THE BLAZING,
TO THE FLAMES ALL ROARING HIGH
SEE THE ANIMALS ALL RUNNING
SEE THE BIRDS ALL START TO FLY

FEEL THE TREES
ALREADY SCREAMING
FOR THERE'S   NOWHERE
THEY CAN RUN
NOW THAT MOTHER NATURE'S DYING,
FROM WHAT MAN HAS FINALLY DONE!


SEE THE FLAMES THAT NOW ARE RAGING,
THRU THE CANYON BRIGHT WITH FLAME
FEEL THE TERROR AND THE HORROR
FROM A FEAR THAT'S HARD TO NAME!

HEAR THE SCREAMS
OF HAWKS AND EAGLES
AS THEY FIGHT TO FLY AWAY
FROM THE SMOKE
THAT'S RISING HIGHER,
TO A SKY NOW TURNED TO GRAY!

THEN, HEAR THE CHAIN SAWS SCREAMING
WITH A MOURNFUL, SOULFUL CRY
THAT SOON WILL END
THE LIVES OF TREES
WHO WERE NOT MEANT TO DIE!

AND HEAR THE BABY ANIMALS
WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO TRY
THEN WATCH THE BABY EAGLES
AS THEY VAINLY TRY TO FLY

AWAY FROM ALL THE HORROR AND
THE TERROR CAUSED BY MAN
FOR SURELY,
THIS WAS NOT THE SCHEME
THAT MOTHER NATURE PLANNED!

AND SHE SAID........

''MAMA, WHY YA CRYIN AT THE TV
SHOW THAT'S ON?''

        I SAID, ''DARLIN I'M A-CRYIN
FOR THE TREES WILL SOON BE GONE!

      I'M CRYIN   FOR THE ANIMALS
WITH NO PLACE LEFT TO LIVE

AND I'M CRYIN FOR THE TAKIN
WHEN
THERE'S NO MORE LEFT TO GIVE!

I'M CRYIN FOR THE PLANET
WHOSE BEAUTY ONCE WAS RARE,
I'M CRYIN FOR THE PEOPLE
WHO NO LONGER SEEM TO CARE!

I'M CRYIN FOR THE ANGER
THAT I NOW CAN FEEL INSIDE
I CRY FOR MOTHER NATURE,
WHOSE HOPE HAS FINALLY DIED!

THE GRAND CONFUSION

Amidst the Grand Confusion
Of the Everyday Illusion
There stands created in the average man
The sum of his delusions

He pursues the trodden Path
Of footsteps walked before
Always seeking "Heaven's Door"
A Paradise to find, but only in his mind
Yet Still ~ He cries for More !

And Yet, the silent plea
Resounding in his Mind
A Universal Question
Of a most perplexing kind ~

Of Who? Of Why? Of What's to be?
Of Who came first in history?
Of Pyramids, Of Ancient Laws
But do you suppose
He just might Pause

For once in life, to simply Be
And just feel glad to say "I'm Me!"
To suffer hurt yet understand
And not condemn his fellow man
To not parade his life in sham
But simply say ~
" I Know ~ ~ ~ I Am ! "

DAY DREAM DESTINY

How do I love thee?
Let me count the Neighs ~
Let me count the memories
Of the joys that filled my days

Let me tell of wonder
As I gaze upon your Form
Let me then remember
How your body kept me warm

On days when winds were bitter
And the temperature so chill
Those vivid memories linger
And I know they always will !

Let me feel our heartbeats
As we 'd race against the Wind
Let me tell of special Love,
I know will Never End.

Let me speak of beauty,
So profound It would amaze
Let me tell of Spirit
That transcends the Darkest Days

Let me speak of Friendship
And of precious  Time Together
When stress and pain and worldly cares
Would fly away like feathers

Let me sing of Freedom,
When together You and I
Would fly on Wings of Wonder,
With Our Spirits soaring high !

Let me sing of seasons
Of Snow ~ And Rain. ~ And Sun
When we would run together
And our Spirits joined as One

Let me share the secrets
Of a bonding We have known
Let me tell of time that's proved
How much we both have grown

And let me then remember,
That Magick Day we met
Your beauty overwhelming
How could anyone forget ?

And as my memories take me back
Into that Magick time
Let me then recall the ways
You showed me you were mine!

THE SILVER RING > (The Mother~Ship)

The Silver Ring invades my Vision
Flashing Lights for all to see
Here I stand, Sighing ~ Almost Dying
Tearfully still Crying
" Wait for Me! ~ Wait for Me! "

The Silver Ring, from planet distant
Is bringing words of Peace to Earth
Telling tales of distant memory
Telling how things will be
And the Planet's 'Death' ~ and 'Birth!'

I watch them go, to sail the Heavens
And as they leave, I hear them call
"There are many Silver Rings to guide you
Some are Lost inside You
Only One will rule them all "

I watch them leave,
My Heart leaves with them
I cry aloud
" Please ~ Wait For Me!
Can't you tell, Don't you know
I'm Wrong here, I just don't belong here
Please ~ Come Back For Me! "

Silver Ring forever spinning
Weaving Daydreams in my Mind
Bring to Earth a New Beginning
Encounters of Another Kind!

BROKEN HEART ~ SHATTERED DREAMS

Page two contains Lyrics of songs appearing on my CD's plus > additional Love Poems

WARNING! Tissue Alert !

If your heart is not ready to hurt
If your eyes are not ready to cry
You may wish to just wait
For another day to go try !

And when you do finally read them
Please don't cry then, for me
Because although I've 'lived them'
My life now is happy, you see!
