Gaining insight

April 30, 2019

An old favorite movie

To watch without popcorn, whiskey or surprise

But insight can be gained

More than the first time through

Panic

April 30, 2019

Ever had a panic attack?

I have been blessed with only one such learning experience

Filled me with dread

Lasted several minutes

And stopped as quickly as it began

Solved nothing

That’s the body for you…

I was asleep when it started so

Couldn’t be stopped once it began

Anxiety is a bit more common

It begins with too much

Or no plan for dealing with

Too much to do

Or not taking meds

Or

Or

Or…

Mending walls

April 30, 2019

Building walls

That must be mended

Produces an atmosphere

Of distrust

In others

Against others

A fence keeps the animals at bay

And keeps us neighborly

Mend fences

Don’t build walls

Love in nature

April 30, 2019

Tired of things that last

Only awhile

Seeing isn’t believing

And memories grow dim

Love and fear inspire us to find our way

From danger to nurturing embrace

First love is seldom a thing to avoid

First broken…heart

Is mended in time

Love in nature teaches us what dangers to ignore

Death and liveliness

April 30, 2019

Come alive

Come to be alive

Living forgoes death

Liveliness forgives dying

Your story

Share your story here:

Your story is brought to mind by looking at the keyboard

Made alive by typing

Your story, and mine

Is the talking and calling and writing we do

Make sure it is your own

Love missed blues

April 29, 2019

Ive had this feeling called the blues

Since my heart was rent in two

I don’t know what I do

All I do is stay around

And cry

Not such a beautiful dream

Can’t accept it’s over

In the realm of dream

I’m still so used to her somehow

And I’m my own sugar daddy now

still lonesome

I’ve got them love missed blues

I’ve been in love

Been in love

with a beautiful soul

That’s why I’m feeling this way

I’m still in love

still in love

With her beautiful soul

and she might care about me

Yes I tried

Yes we tried

To keep us satisfied

But she don’t care about

we

That’s why I’m weeping

And cry the night through

And this is all I should say

I have a feeling it’s the blues

As my darlings says goodby

I don’t know what I wouldn’t do

can’t sit around and cry

All day through

I’ve grown so used to me in time

Being my only sauger daddy now

think I’ll stay on

Without these love missed blues

Indifference

April 29, 2019

Oh the love is gone!

Our humanity is indifferent now

Opposite of love is indifference

The great human killer

This insidious soul destroyer

Dreams wane

April 29, 2019

Remember other’s journey and take note of their success’s

Avoid the absence of aspiration

Fear when dreams wane

Failure is not to be feared

Impress and indifference

Ingress and excesses

Journeys are about progress

Not obstacles

Not worries

Madly

April 29, 2019

And I loved her madly

That madness is…

What love can inspire

Now

I try to love without barriers

Purely

Without any additions or distractions

Just human to human

Friends

And lovers in love
