Man(made)

Inspired by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces – Love, Hate, Rain, Drought

love me so hard
that i’ll hate you for stopping
this tidal rain of passion
when over
leaving me in a drought
and in a wrecked state

where is this man
bringing me to ecstasy
ushering forth
the epitome of having a stroke

never mind, i’ll just put myself in a coma

A Path To Peace

whether with deliberation
or from exhaustion

there will come a time
when steps need to be taken

to safeguard our sanity
and build back a reserve

taking the best route
to heal and restore

whether movement, nature, meditation
resting, music or books

that which provides respite
will lead us back to reality

Reblog – I Am Until Paul Vincent Cannon

May we all decide to be on the side which enriches our being and the lives of others. Growth and learning to be and remain humane is a choice. This piece holds such truth in these few short lines, I’m tempted to memorize it and choose it as a daily affirmation.

“You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside.” Alan Cohen

I Am Until

It is that
I am complicit until I am not,
I am a lover until I am not,
I am justice unti I am not,
I am compassion until I am not,
I am awareness until I am not,
I am shaped until I am not
by all that surrounds 
where my feet touch 
the ground and, equally,
I am not until I am.

I Write Her

Untitled

There’s a substantive intimacy in nature. It’s filling.
The smell of earth satisfying and rejuvenating.

The wind enveloping you in its invisible caress.
Touching without, healing within.

Hello, beautiful bird on a sunny day!
Seeing you brings me joy and a smile.

The smile of someone engaged.

I feel my best friend at that moment.
And I miss her.

It’s me looking through her eyes, but she’s not there.
For a moment I could cry.

From her, I learned the wisdom of these significant bits of the day.

She’d be in that moment with me graciously approving
and being grateful for the beauty of our surroundings.

My friend would love you too, beautiful bird.

And I love her.

Reblog – Keeps Returning by Kritika

This piece is wrapped up well in metaphor but the intense emotions do thrust out to you forcefully. Well done!

Valorous Bird

if there is a way in which I can seek solace from the guilt returning to the clean plate over and over
repeating the once delicious dish which emptied the heart and left the stomach growling
oh the rise of desire to turn back time and slap the innocence which chimed
oh how much the hungry heart craves for never to have made that mistake which turned to series of regretful rhymes

poison me to dwindle the rising guilt
each time the name crosses the mind
and I become a stinging serpent
for another passer-by
