Hey Everybody! Those of every age
how about some free poetry
A few lines of generic rhyme
Written down so all can see
 
Now is the time
We can be a poem or a tree
Both grown from God’s Earth
Blooming honestly
 
St. Stephen Daedalus
With his mother’s rose
Haunted, to the garden he goes
Playing that tune heard deep inside
Music only he and Heaven knows
 
It is useless to judge
Idealize, idolize, or compare
Nudge someone, compassionately now
We all have some Love to spare
 
When we have respect
For every song and every dance
It is senseless to pretend
And ridiculous to hide
When we have humility
We don’t need pride
 
A coupla couplets and some fancy preachin
Won’t change the world, It’s vain reachin
Just as looking backward for truth
Tricks us into missin today’s teachin
 
Peace is in the balance
of thought, word, and deed
Forgiveness triumphs over hatred and greed
The black of night celebrates the dawn of day
 
Life is a vibration
goin back and forth, like a relay
yin and yang, the silent bang
alternately inspired and utterly tired
It is all One poem anyway
 

Rob Chavez lives in Alexandria, Virginia with his partner Rich. He makes a living as a computer security engineer and likes hanging out with Rich at their cozy home, listening to classic rock music – particularly the Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead families, dancing, watching movies, writing poetry, studying metaphysics, spending quiet nights observing the heavens and smiling.
