Smoky Mountain Light Show

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Smoky Mountain Light Show

Only the fireflies light the sky
on this particular 4th of July.
the barbecue grill has been replaced
by a old fashioned stone fire place.
Not any band march in a parade,
because the birds make music today.
No explosions echo in the night,
and somehow it all seems right.

Old Friends

Old Friends

A pair of names, circled with a heart, are
etched permanently on the school desk,
indelibly recorded with layers of ink…
another sits on the signs of the past.
Skirts flirted once, and eyes rolled
around the room searching for love,
even though feelings were young…
another looks for a future “old friend.”

Sunday Morning

A poem by Brother Levi Jacobs

Sunday Morning

There is still a lot of work to do,
but I am just not in the mood.
For once, I’d like to have my
way. After all it’s a Sunday.

Peeling Boots

Peeling Boots

What is a man supposed to do
with boots that are starting to peel,
especially after the boots had
been given a new set of hard heals?
Forgetting the boots is hard.
So how does a cowboy need to feel?

They have been around 10 years,
and worked in the dark and the light.
The boots have checked out ladies,
including the one who’s now my wife.
They have walked me through the rain,
and always stayed black and bright.

What is a man supposed to do
with boots that are starting to peel?
Take a day off, look around some,
and find boots with a good deal.

I Just Need to Belong to Me

I Just Need to Belong to Me

Which choice do I make?
The sun will be going down, and
I have to make a decision soon.
There are several possibilities,
but I don’t know what to believe.
I don’t belong to your kind,
and I’m really not a part of them.
I’m stuck somewhere in the middle.
I just need to belong to me.
Who am I in reality?

Back to Texas

Back to Texas

I want to go back to Texas,
That’s where I know I belong.
I’ve been north, east and west.
I think I’ve been away too long.
The feeling to come home back
To you has been growing strong,
But I’m a different person now
After the years I’ve been gone.
I know leaving you back then was
one of many things I’ve done wrong.
My feelings for you are like lyrics
To some old Mexican love song.
Reasons not to care for me are real,
You have your own life going on.
I want to go back to Texas,
That’s where I know I belong.
No matter where I have roamed,
You were in my heart all along.

Eye to Eye

Editor’s Note: I tried to write something for Valentine’s Day this year, and this is a start of something.

Eye to Eye

repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
I thought I was the only one you called your man,
working every day to carry out a plan, and
I try real hard to make you happy as I can,
but this is hard for me to really understand.
I want to do more than just hold your hand.

(repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
I heard from friends you were out with another guy,
and then you denied it with what some call a lie.
You know I will love you until the day I die,
but all I want to know is why, why, why?
I want us to keep our love stay eye to eye.

(repeating musical rhythm track)
(words are spoken)
On this very special Valentine’s Day,
I have a special message I want to convey,
even though it’s cloudy and skies are gray.
I would like you know I want you to stay,
even though it’s hard to believe what you say.

On The Hollodeck

On The Hollodeck

A computer program can change an
empty room into a wild west saloon
on the hollodeck.

Distant memories that have yet to be
made can be shared and replayed
on the hollodeck.

Everything you sense you think is
real, even the emotions you feel,
on the hollodeck.

You can make your own world, a
Wizard of Oz, but be cool The Fonze,
on the hollodeck.

It’s hard to forget it’ a mechanical dream.
You can get hooked on it, it seems,
on the hollodeck.

You can lose your sense of reality,
rationality, and responsibility,
on the hollodeck.

Tough Enough?

Tough Enough?

Are you tough enough to survive today?
Are you too old to brave the freezing cold?
Do you take action on your own or are you told?
Are you too young to be told how it’s done?
Are you too bummed to know when to have fun?
Can you focus on issues or be fooled by “fake news”?
Is your choice of music trending toward the blues?
How far do you drive after you start the car?
Do you go into surgery and expect a big scar?
Do you get mad at rearranged shelves at the store?
Do you pay someone to do household chores?
Do you feel safe to enter a crowded elevator?
Do you worry about bed bugs in a theater?
Are you tough enough to survive today?

What this world needs is what
some people call a universal man,
and this unique personality
has a special ability to understand
when and how to implement
what some call a master plan.

This universal man uses the

in unbounded determination
to become an important leader

Once the universal man has

which will create a tradition
while the forces he commands
