I landed here on Thursday Or was it Wednesday I don't know due to the time change What a city 7x the population of Calgary It's cleaner than I thought The air Thousands of years of history lay here Civilizations built & then forgotten Then built upon again One atop of another How many wandering souls have come & gone? Earlier on today I wandered into some church Sat in silence for a few minutes I did not pray or meditate I just got lost in the moment So much movement The shores of the River Thames were packed with people It was like a sea of lemmings Except that nobody jumped off a cliff I know nothing of the Knights Templar Except that they were here My father spoke of some of our descendants Ladies, Knights, etc., Hundreds of years later here I am Walking in places they may have walked Seeing things they may have seen Doing things they may have done In Canada It's mainly about the natives Which tribe did this Which tribe did that But now I stop & think We are all the same tribe We've just forgotten our history History that lies in Israel Israel where I was supposed to go But I ended up here Why I ask? Who knows but here is where I am Now I ask where are you? Carmil Lara Various others I have met I could sure use a familiar face right now I could call my brother Steve Tell him I am over 4,000 miles away & for the first time in a long time Sorta' lonely But it's times like this Where the artist gets their soul One thing leads to another Then there's an eruption Hot magma that eventually will be cooled & when that happens You can sit there & see the results (Now I am done & so is my coffee & cheesecake gotta' roll now, but if you're ever here stop in)
