Ode to Lonnie Liston Smith

…and those times

when life and energy

coursed uncompromisingly

through our blood

and bones.

we walked

with passion

and the music

that love

produces

all

around us…

never reaching

to be understood

only looking for

the truth

of our feelings

and the tones

of existence.

set in stages

of mist

and romance

and discourse;

Astral Traveling

Gardens of Peace;

life,

sound,

spirit

and

dreams…

an ode

to a man

of music

who envisioned

Paradise

in earthly

form.

and

who understood

the trust;

and

the breadth

of what

that really

means…
