    Son-in-law, Bill JONES
    Grandson, John Paul JONES

    Dedicated To The Memory Of My Grandfather, Forrest Foltz
    by John Paul Jones

    Yellow streams of light
    glide past a thoursand clouds
    playing their indidivual collective parts
    in the dream that is our surroundings

    The formless gifts
    that one bequeathes to his brothers
    and sisters in the struggle of existence
    invigorates the life force of each soul.
    A living phantom
    breathes strength into weakness.
    And a cash register informs the store
    clerk that change is due.

    Below the rocky cliffs of reality
    in the chasms of my mind
    I strolled down a sidewalk
    tonight
    before dusk
    during a storm
    and came upon a clown
    laughing hysterically to himself.
    And while taking a break to breathe,
    he mentioned to me
    tha life is all a show
    and that it is important
    to keep them laughing as they go.

    As the day ends
    and an orange glow illuminates the
    land,
    it is obvious
    that very little has changed today.

    As the people one by one
    click off the televeision,
    a silence can be heard
    and before sleep is achieved,
    tiny feet of thought
    scurry around in the mind
    and try to crowd their way
    to oblivion and eternity.
