summer time blues

“You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last

But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast

Yonder stands your orphan with his gun 

crying like a fire in the sun

look out the saints are coming through

And it’s all over now, baby blue


The Highway is for gamblers, better use your sense

Take what you have gathered from coincidence

The empty handed painter from your streets

is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets

This sky, too, is folding under you

And it’s all over now, Baby blue


All your sea sick sailors , they are rowing home

your empty handed armies are all going home

your lover who just walked out the door

has taken all his blankets from the floor

The carpet, too, is moving under you

Ang it’s all over now, baby blue.


Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you

forget the dead you’ve left ,they will not follow you  The vagabond who’s rapping at your door

is standing in the clothes that you once wore

strike another match, go start a new

and it’s all over now, baby blue.”

                  It’s all over now, baby blue

                        -Bob Dylan

Seeking instructions from somewhere high up

do this , do that


who started talking

who stopped it ?

you think you are a ship having reached land

but no one ,

no one is holding your hand

you think that sanity demands a certain compromise

you think this means now you got to rise

but watching people walking sitting

together or alone

you recall watching from someplace far away

the movement of time slipping away

you can not stop time

you can not hold space

your instructions come to you

line after line

watching the world go by

watching someone you don’t know

holding the hand of another person you will never know

sometimes, like now

you got to let it go somewhere else

if you don’t die in the process

you grow to know

what life is all about

some days are hard

they are stone

but there will be other days

flowing like water

the sun will show you too many people

the shadow will be a friend

hiding what you can not understand just now 

keep walking

stop asking how

let the past disappear

let yourself seek a new home

somewhere else

where you don’t recognize even a single face

but where you will finally  come to know yourself !
