The Preacher Says Redemption

Jesus Preaches While Kittens Reign Down - Mitro

The preacher says lift the stain of self flagellation 
off your soul
let the power of light illuminate your being
speak not of things that felt erring
bathe in light
light of immortal redemption
when all done turns immaculate clean
without this chaos in growing
things needing seen
remain forever unseen.

The Big Blue Whale Who Cried

Manatee - Mitro

Deep down below the ocean
sat a big blue whale
who cried and cried
his heart out
no one wants a big fat whale
his name was Fred
and he would dread
when people came to meet him
they would act surprised
open up their eyes, and say
but my
you're a big fellow
he though oh wow
I'm young now
and have no interest in girls
but when I decide to take a bride
who will take on such a blubber
the currents rushed and the ocean drew
and a strange little surprise revealed
why there just in front of him
before his very eyes
came a tiny little man
with tiny little feet
and of tiny little size
he rode aboard a seahorse
and tears fell from his eyes
now Fred was  intrigued and
felt so bad he wanted to help this fellow
he said to him why do you cry
you little tiny fellow
the man looked up for indeed he was
a very old old man
and said to Fred why would I not
it's all because of my size
and you of course would not understand
for I can see you are a healthy strapping young fellow
now this quite stopped our Freddy short
and he pondered deep and thought 
and then he sat and sighed
 and blurted out his heart
it seems that we are never pleased with anything we are
we want what's different than ourselves
when we are  actually five stars
if only we could see we are lovely just  the way we are
and that it takes the tiny and the large
so hold your head high with dignity

The Man in The Moon is Pining For You

The Man in The Moon is Pining For You -  Mitro
Blinded by the starlight
the red wren flees the air
and makes a voyage to safety
in whatever way he dare
oh precious bird
what do you fear
why do you fear the night
why silly goose
I'll tell you why
because there is not light

Christmas - Mitro
My son grows like a exquisite crystal
in magnificent paths and en pointe
his energy refracts like a rainbow 
with beautiful colors intent 
a multitude of angels sing through him in halo
in dulcet harmonious tones
intelligence seeps through his aura
surrounding all he takes on
a beautiful corona of lightness 
follows him forever around
my son eludes absolute goodness
and in growing his life becomes incredibly strong
a dazzling crystal of mankind 
my son 
not mine
but his own

Story of Forever Monday Morning

We walked into the room
and felt the tension immediately
an unearthly sense of doom
I put the package of beautiful cupcakes on the table
I had no taste for them anymore
in fact I felt like running out the door
but something suddenly transfixed me
I heard a tinny laugh
and heard the chair legs scrapping across the wood floor
it wasn't anything someone in my position could ignore
all of a sudden lights flashed on
and the room seemed to spin
drat it was the darn fuques again
I paced the distance between the door and me
enough to dive and run
but was I fast enough to outrun a gun
but you fool
the guns in your head
it's only Monday morning
a time you've come to dread

Shadow Land

The world is full of shadows
sharp and clean
illuminating my soul
not the dark shadow land creatures
but a foretelling of futures of gold
I knock and now no one now answers
I know only I can open the door
to beautiful sunshine tomorrows
only I and I alone have that control 

my future is brilliant and unfolding
right now at this very minute of time
if you want to come with me just tell me
but you have to be strong and not twine
for I need no more cumbersome burdens
this is my time and my time alone
I can love you tomorrow and for always
if you just learn to leave me alone

Sliver Ocean Salt Life

Daytona Beach Florida  Photography by Kathy Mitro
A silver day starts at the ocean
liquid blue waves stream to kiss powdered shore
a tiny boy dropkicks a football
hard to ask for anything more
the sea gulls cry out and are quite raucous
the terns I call the boys from Japan
with their mars black flop of  a hairdo
resembling honorable oriental men
the crabs fly everywhere into hidey-holes
as we walk on the sand hand in hand
my spirit calls out to calm and reassure them
but I fear that they don't  understand
surfers in brilliant yellow and orange board shorts
imitating the sun and  wearing jubilant grins
today is their day at the ocean
and they will only let happiness in
pelican dive and then cannonball
the water shoots up in the sky
from their heavy little bodies hitting water
 in stupendous and death defying dives
dolphins cavort and then tumble
through endless wave after wave after wave
so this is what they call salt life
the joy the salt air and salt water brings
