~~~~ Tye Dye Snowballs are edible ya know ~~~~~
Heading west off of SR17 out of Cordis Junction Az. is a really sweet scenic drive ,,
ya get to this Town that still has all the 1800's stone buildings ,,,
it's called Prescott ,, and sets in the rolling pine covered hills of Western Central Az. .
keep west a few miles passed Prescott,,, and You come to this HUGE Ancient Volcanic Column
Known as Thumb Butte ,, it's a state park ,, and awesome in the Snow of Winter .
Us Rainbows figure a Trip up there is a good idea to use up a weekend together ,
so we get it all planned out,, goin' to be about 20 of us , so lots of logistics gotta be worked out.
Food water toiletries , fun toys ,,, fuel for cooking ,, and the vehicles needed .
Money pitched in for those ain't got a Job ,, extra stuff like sleeping bags if someone
ain't got one .
Orion had just come down from Oregon with two shopping bags full of Rainbow Mushrooms
so we got the entertainment covered in that respect .
and,,,, I got an idea ,,, a sneaky Idea ,,, a fun Idea ,,, lots of laughs Idea ,, many giggles Idea
Tye Dye Snowball Wars !!!!!!
We got a lot of Art in us all ,, kids in Adult Bodies are GREAT man .
You make 'em like ya do Snowcones, cept the Snow has to be wet snow not dry powder
and packed really dense too, other wise , ya gonna melt the snow with the food coloring
which you also have to set down in the snow for a bit before you pour it on the snowball
don't want it to melt the ball ya know .
Sunshine,, she heads up the Rainbow Gatherings in this area , she organizes ya know , and
I , well , I'm kinda an Organized type too ,,
so it's me and her puttin' the trip together ,,
about six of us go in the Market together and grab the Stock of goodies we'll be cooking
and FleaBo and me go down this here Isle , I stop at the Food Coloring ,,,, FleaBo, help
me grab all of these man ,,
All of them ?
Yep ,, every one of them, and those up there on that top shelf .
FleaBo ask a hella lot of questions some times ,, so I know it's comin'
"Hey ,, ah , what do ya do with all this Rog' ,, like why all of them man ?
FleaBo,, secret sauce dude ,, can't divulge it man .
( He kinda thinks I'm some sort of Wizard any way ,, He asked me once : I think you can fly dude,,you probably can ,, can you ? Ha! no man ,,, used to , till the surgery cropped my ears down . )
so he just shrugs and tosses all he can in the basket that he's been driving without a License
through the store .
Daily life Mystify s him any way, so this Mystery is just another of the collection to him in a day .
No Prob he thinks .
FleaBo is under my wing, I take care of him , ya know .
He's the little Brother to me ,,
He told me once : Ya know Rog' , I ain't real big or nothin" and I got to thinking , if we
are descended down from Apes and stuff ,, well , like,, which one was small that i came from ,,, ya know ,,
so I got this idea ,, That Monkeys are Midget Gorillas ,,, Makes sense don't it ?
if you can't love that man ,, you just dead inside man , he cracked me up ,, and right
then and there , he was gonna be my ward ,, someone that precious man ,,
ya just adopt 'em right on the spot .
So we clean the shelves of every drop of Food coloring ,, cause , well , we got important stuff
to use it for ,,, they'll restock someday , it ain't Easter or nothin ya know , so ain't
like our greed is gonna inconvenience a whole city or anything .
maybe some Gran Ma wantin to make a Cake for a Gran Kid,, but she can go to Vons ya know .
We load up the Bus and several trunks ,,,and Boogie rubber north out of Phoenix for
the Thumb ,, everyone pretty Jazzed to get out of the City for the weekend .
Happy is swirlin' the Air around us like a breeze pushin misty giggles , we ecstatic we are .
My Bus is point and I set the pace,,, the pin on the needle at 55 mark,,,, cause any road trip
is about the scenery along the way,,, as it is as much the destination , no rush , Thumb
is hard tacked down , so it'll be there anytime we arrive .
We slither silently through Prescott and surface the other side of town without picking'
up the notice of the Local Ticket dispensers , we cool , we Rainbow , we are targets
in their sights ,, so we are on a very good Karmic stance this day .
I pull into the parking lot with 3 in the train coming up behind , we park , the lot is empty
Oh yes , it is our day,,, this day,,, RIGHTEOUS ! No Normals to worry about,, no holdin' back
our behavior in front of them ,,, ya know.
We can Kick out the Ya' Ya's freestyle without concern .
I jump the top of a Boulder and hold up the Feather over head ,,( Speaker is given the feather , means shut up, his turn to squawk ,, ya know )
Sisters ,, Calm thy Brothers ,, Brothers heed please ,,

Brothers and Sisters I announce , When Cotten here lights his Fart , Let the Battle begin ,,
Cotten couldn't manage a match ,, so I toss a snowball straight up and when it hits the ground ,, the air takes on ribbons of colors that just cause the Soul to say ,,,
WOOOOoooooooooo yes ,,
Sniggers and giggles become Guffaws as Balls meet dreads and asses ,,,
long colorful streaks running down peoples faces ,,,
People Laughing so hard they weaken and fall while others charge them to deliver the Nell
and fall over them weak from laughter ,,
More balls hit the ground than opponents and the lines blur where teams once were ,,,
it's Glorious ,, your heart becomes so light you almost levitate ,,,
One Brother is on all fours ,, giggling hard to right and just above center ,, when a sister
creeps up and shoves a mostly melted snowball down the back of his Dungies ,,
Shits gone beyond giggle-lific at this point ,, ya can't throw what ya can no longer lift ,,
hell ,, ya can't lift your arm ,,, much less fling a Ball ,,
almost everyone is on the ground laughing ,, a couple make snow angels ,, flapping
like flight was eminent .
Oh Gawd ,, EPIC just Took on Higher Consciousness and flew right up to the sun .
He said he didn't ,, but he did ,, this brother pissed himself ,, steam whiffing off his
pants leg ,,,
I lost it right there man ,, Contact High took me ,, I ain't even a Good figment of myself any
more ,, I now be,,, Rog' the Gandalf of Thumb Butte ,, Transform from Gray to White ,,
I'm down on my knee's ,, belly laugh so hard a lung pops out my mouth ,,
Sister with a ,, " Laughing like a Loon brother " out in front of her comes flashing by ,, Big old
Ball of Glowing color held over head,,, arm cocked for the Patweeeeeee,,,,, SPLAT !
He'd beaned her a good one from 5 feet away,, she's determined he pay up that price with change left over ,,,
He turns sideways in defeat looking back at her and steps on his own foot, with arm raised to ward off the ball ,, face meets mush ,,, she flops straddled across him ,, ball comes down to the
back of his head and SMEARED ROUND GRINDING IT IN HIS HAIR ,,, HA HAH HAHAHAHA !!!
I ain't even in me no more ,,,I've took flight and floating ,, mouth open wide ,,,
sound of my laughter is coming from above and behind me ,,, disconnected ,,,
Skate shoe on it's own ,, sticking out of a pile of snow ,, confused look on it's laces ,,
winks at me and ask my hand in Marriage ,,
Gladly ,, i say to it ,,
another sister rushing with a hoody full of mushy balls leaking streams of deep blue-ish
purple ,, held to her stomach cracks a laugh and smacks a brother across the ass with it ,,
Knees bend and he's down for the buzzer ,,, sister slips sideways pass him and lands
Tush bounce down ,,, I can't stand it ,, vessels in my nose are gonna pop off ,,,
Echos of the Laughter careening off the Butte and ricocheting off every head and into mine ,,
I'm now every one ,, I ain't one , I am Legion ,, a Giggling Hippy Legion of mindlossed
color streaked Children whose only Fault is they forgot to remember to be ,,
serious about life ,,
A brother has a 2 liter of soda shook up and he's spraying downed laughers with it ,,
Oh the Sticky we are ,, shits hit the fan ,, and it couldn't make us happier .
There are no matters ,,, this is senseless sensibilities in complete abandon ,,
riches is what we are having ,, price was nothing ,,, there is no rent in this world ,,
We be Rainbow , and we 99.9 fine ,,, on a Golden stream of heavens Cherry Pie ala mode .
A God may have Created Adam ,, we created Adams Laugh ,,,, we awesome potatoes
we the bean in the sprout that won't cop out ,,, we that lace on the hem of heavens
we the Window ,, we the prismatic child with the glass eye into the willows secrets ,,
we love to laugh ,, and embellish laugh with love ,,, we painted the dark with glow in the dark tye dye and made it lighten up on itself ,,,
We Fractal , we Rainbow , We keep the Light stuck to a darkened world ,,,
we the love no one else wanted
We Rainbow Children of Living Light ,
and we love you
