If I am so lucky
as to remember those friends
Upon whose dreams I feasted

Whose photographs I carry
still    (alive) dancing   in those silly
broken piano poems I wrote

Of needle bent heroes 
And babies born in teepees
On full moon Cat Mother nights

Oh Mendocino,
Oh Hippie Love,
Oh Ghosts of another life

If I am the one
 to toll the bell
In the mist beyond our journey

I’ll sing farewell
I’ll  remember ye well
From the time of our beginning….

    Beautiful poems, Carl, both the older one (accompanied by a great photo), and what is obviously one that is somewhat more recent. I hope you will keep writing. Your poems make a difference to us.

    Really moved by both of your pieces Carl.
