When abstract and linear thought are conjunctionally fostered through the creative process, it molds and shapes the inner cerebrum of the mind - giving birth to the whole man. The only limits are those imposed by self.

1956, The grandeur night life;
Cruising the strip.
Envy I became-
Itís such a demand.
Shining for miles.
Oh what the life;
the life and style.
1966, The glitz was gone.
Shame I became.
Tossed in a field of lilies;
they too-eschewed-and rose high.
Pining to rev, and roam once again;
Destined to seclusion;
The effervescence was gone;
rust, and corrosion had subserved.
1975, Lost and forgotten;
The morning tears, rest upon my hood.
Through the dense fog-
My peering eyes could see-
I cried rescue me.
Too far, in the distance-
they pressed on.
Lost and forgotten;
humble I became.
Longing for someone-
To feel my pain, (How dreadful,
it had become).
The hazy recollection of the days of yore;
still a spark smoldered,
and I pined some more.
1994, A blooming bright morning had appeared,
A dobbin was grazing.
A young Petticoat came dancing nigh.
She stopped and marveled,
and saw a beauty
that I could not see.
She romped for a moment;
Then she was gone.
Puzzled at her actions;
and wounded to the core;
My sadness intensified more.
Expediently, she returned
with a team of dobbins, and a crew.
They hoisted me up and out
of the bed I lay-placing me on a trailer,
which left me no longer in clay.
Carried for miles to a nearby farm:
I wondered, what was to come?
My fallen parts where tucked close by.
A closeness and tenderness had come.
Carefully-me and my parts
where placed in a sanctum-the barn at most,
To be tended,
nursed, and coursed.
The crew worked night and day;
sanding, and probing
with fine instruments to rid me
of the cancerous rust that plagued me
My emotions rang high;
Not taking anything for granted.
New tires were rolled in and mounted.
New leather/covered the tattered seats.
Broken parts welded like new.
I was becoming whole.
The excitement! The ecstasy
Parts not my own, but the same-
Restored me-Restored me like new.
The work was done; the crew was gone.
All alone in this empty barn
I thought; now what?
An elderly man, entered the barn
carrying a red can and a nozzle.
He inserted the nozzle into my spout,
and poured fluid-I had tasted-not.
He proceeded to turn my engine.
My engine all primed and churning:
The elderly gentleman mounted me,
and took me for a spin.
Returning to the barn
all out of breath
my wandering eyes could see
the Petticoat-who rescued me;
She now-holds my keys.
Cruising once again-the Petticoat and me.
Taking nothing for granted-you see.
but take it from me-
life has itsí price-
if only you could see.
Proud and boastful-I cannot be; humility
stands forth, for the Petticoat rescued me.
