Artesian Attraction

Love that flows
With a lullaby sound
Passion cascades
From life underground
Barry A. Lanier



b A Poet Paints a Thousand Words

Over mountains and valleys
Soaring the skies in view
Random truths and wisdom
Coming only in soltitude

Painting pictures at night
While sleeping on his heart
Arising only on impulse
Fancing a fresh new start

Taking all our sorrows
And rhyming it away
Etching out our memories
As they fade away

Painting refreshing springs
From where souls can drink
Soothing lonely spirit's
With yet only his ink

From ordinary meanings
Yet with no pretense
Distilling the emotions
Making so much sense

Fragrant sights and scenes
Nature's blossoming vines
Painting vineyards of crimson
Where old memories reside

Drawing inspirations
From the silence of night
Soaring among eagles
Amid their endless flight

Painting as The Creator
Vivid sights and sounds
Yes He also a poet
Just look around
Barry A. Lanier



b Skinny Dippin'

Young bare-bottom boys
All standing in line
Swinging rope to the river
There wasn't much time
The girls soon to arrive
In their pink underwear
We had to hide eyes
And we had to swear
When all in the river
In laughter were lost
Suddenly yet surely
Pinkies and T-shirts
Coming off!
Banter of bare-bottomed boys
Among deep seated voices
Shrills of care-free girls
Evaluating their choices
Really no harm done
Playing naked in nature's pool
Not one even considered
We might even be young fools
Yet lessons are learned
Though no one was listening
You don't drink Budweiser beer
When you're skinny dippin'
Time for all to go home
Not counting the cost
Somewhere in the evening
All the clothes somehow lost
Barry A. Lanier



bA Feeling I Can't Forget

In the summer of life,
By chance we first met.
The day I can't remember,
The feeling I can't forget.

My heart soon melted,
Then appeared in my throat.
A young lad, deeply in love,
At the time, didn't even know.

Music and laughter,
Visions and dreams.
Rocking on the frontporch,
Facing landscapes of bright green.

How much I loved her!
Never really telling her how deep.
Together we'd laugh, together we'd weep,
Abide in a love, and friendship so deep.

On a warm, summer's day,
My true love was sent.
A winter's chill filled my spirit,
As homeward, she went.
Barry A. Lanier
