POET LOOKS UP LIKE TOMORROW'S NOT PROMISED . The Moon with Venus directly below it, competing with my street lights tonight in Stockton CA on July 20th, 2018 at 11:45 pm. Zoom in, read below, then go outside and look in awe! . . B I N D . Tomorrow’s just, its next days’ memory— . and a bunch of pictures in my mind— . that I think I know will come to be . as what might instead, is left behind. . I can’t guarantee what’s soon, or past . too slow or fast, I find— as “Now’s” are realer than . about-to-be’s, or “then’s” . where time’s resigned— . as every flower, bird, star, and bee— . bind. - (bl) . ........................................................... .

MY ♡'S WIRELESSLY CONNECTED TO THE SUN . The Sun keeps super-beaming these poems down into me! . . A G O . Once, I grabbed a fear from in the air. Stared at it too long for it did grow. Shrinking my heart like I didn't know...that I could instantly ungrab, whatever's drab, and free me head to toe. I escaped, replacing gloom, for glow. A trick I learned from in the "Now"....ago. - (bl) .

I JUST STUCK MY CAMERA INTO MY BRAIN . ...and here's what I learned: . . B L U E . What a waste of moons and globes and stars. If all there is, is see, touch, hear, and do. When heart can make them one, from dark, to you. Much more than new. Since what's behind them all, needs no recall--- or forward looking to. It's true! Like birds that fly from now, to now, to now--- though wrapped in blue. - (bl) . Untouched photo, and poem "BLUE" written by Poet/Artist, Bob Laird ©️2018 - All Rights Reserved.

WHITE CAT= GOOD LUCK . This pretty white cat crossed my path at 4:30 am this morning. Now it's life is going to be 10 x better...even though in my realm, there is no luck or chance. Enjoy your 90 lives kitty...I'll be living forever. . . S C A T T E R E D . . My home is scattered . as stars and bees--- . across the dark--- . amidst the breeze. . Like bird-songs--- . as they please, . in my dull ear that lately, sees. Via heart--- . no twinkle, buzz--- . or tune. . Just "wonder", . soon--- . with ease. - (bl) . ................................... . Photo, and poem "SCATTERED" written by Poet/Artist, Bob Laird ©️2018 - All Rights Reserved.

POET WALKS DOG AT NIGHT IN (USA) . My pup Chey decides to stop at this spot on Earth. . . I saw the stars again--- they didn't move at all--- making it hard to think alive they were. But I knew so much better--- even in the daytime--- when they're still there as my breath does occur. They go so unnoticed--- am I their only friend. Gee, I don't mind, they give me so much more--- than I could ever share, in amazement, awe, or wonder--- exactly what they're stuck way up there for. Oh, I could get so busy, always looking down, tied up in my goals like other ones. But, I would surely die, with no true worth from the sky, in my heart surrounded by, a thousand Suns! - (bl) .

WHAT IT ALL LEADS TO ANYWAY . I'm looking at the moon right now through these flowers, with the emotion of all of my accomplishments...prematurely. . In other words... . Blend my days--- with heart--- 'til I can't tell when going from one to the other. With sun over me--- and moon, a guest--- where dark and light are not repeating hours. As all I'd lost--- becomes me--- and all I want, is settled without power. Oh bird-songs--- complete--- all my passion's in a single, "Now". - (bl) .

POETS LIVE IN 2 WORLDS . Tomorrow's "every second", not each Sun revolve--- 'cause it is always out there, anyway. I am not collections of "what was" or what's approaching. For, I'm 100% not a day. Nebulas and stars--- bees and cares and flowers--- I adore your prominent display's. In the moment--- like a present--- without need for memories or delays. - (bl) .

MAKE A WISH or SEND A PRAYER . Been up 'til the wee hours working on this Time Machine, and finally got the CD player fixed. I plan on exhibiting it soon. Below is the poem that will be spinning on it: . B E H O L D ! . I heard the birds--- It's been awhile--- Reconnecting me to far beyond. Where planets matter--- and heart's required--- In order to erase what's trampled on. I halt my senses--- Trust the silence--- More than wishing anything is gone. Behold--- A "Millisecond"--- More powerful than what is lost or won! - (bl) ........................................................... .

POETS LOVE BUTTERFLIES . "A true story of when I worked long hours at a law firm, snuck away into their garden...and changing like a butterfly." - (bl) . . S T U P E N D O U S L Y . I shared a honeysuckle with a bee. Then, tried to touch a baby butterfly--- as a hummingbird looked down at me. It all seemed like such a fantasy--- minus any 'was' or 'going-to-see'. The sun and moon were there, gigantically--- as I shed my old identity. With nature, bliss, and I, so powerfully--- doing nothing much, importantly. Just greatness, in excess. Joy--- Effortless--- Like the bravest ever, melody--- As if we lived and died--- stupendously. . Poem, "STUPENDOUSLY" - (a true story) written by Poet/Artist, Bob Laird ©️2018 - All Rights Reserved.

POET PROPOSES TO A STAR . A star is considered a sun if it resides at the center of a solar system. . . B E A U T I F U L . S U N . "Oh thank you beautiful sun, glaring in my eyes, ever since the day that I was born. Dismissed as merely heat and light by most, is my surprise. While all along, I know you're surely something more. You're taken much for granted, to get from place to place. After night, it's so amazing you return. I've learned from in my HEART, you're more than just a star in space. While here, for many, just a surface to explore. I note you're always giving--- treat me as unfailing--- expecting and supporting, through and through. I exist for your expression, you're always there for me to question, every morn as we unite as ONE from two. You've given me the daring to live fully in the "moment"- behind the clouds there, sometimes like a moon. A perfect disk, no longer threatening. I've stared and learned such WONDER, brings me closer to where dreams come true, real soon. With the majority above you, and my little world below--- no wonder I don't trust, here, what I see. Beause my love's beyond your blinding, where's no forward or reminding, as our days ---no longer measured--- set us free! - (bl) .
