Ffolkes,

and science to imagination, where they meet, in the myth.”

Hajime…. I’m not hung over…. yet. In fact, I’m still a little bit toasted, so, I’ll forgo trying to write coherently. Fortunately, this was all done but for the open & close, so, this is your open, and the close is at the other end. I’ll see you there….

Shall we Pearl?….

I’m running late; hence, we’re going with one of our default choices, to wit, some rather good classical music…. This one is a collection I put on when I want to read, or write, or just sit around, thinking of stuff…. It’s good for any of that, so, enjoy!….

A dream, weeping….

“Never a dull moment to spare”, he said
with a crooked grin, and a broad wink.
“Can’t keep Reality hanging by a thread….
what would Chaos, or Entropy think?”

So, we plucked up our dreams of old,
to carry us on, in dutiful, strong arms,
stuffed a candle in the remaining fold,
for luck, and perfect proof against charms.

Storms follow the sun,  but, never stay;
lessons round every corner, all free.
Past fleeting doubts, in a sad disarray,
the journey becomes the reason to be.

Simple kindness manifests untold riches,
in defiance of common cause’s demise.
Bold courage, hanging in stitches,
mends wounds that come as no surprise.

Still, waters run deep, ’tis said by many.
Too much pain cannot apprehend
the salient, sharp points of epiphany,
nor, plainly, to wisdom aspire to pretend.

Folly dogs even the simplest truth,
fumes of toxic ignorance and bile,
alienated as a loose rotten tooth;
it often hides itself, for a long while.

Sought after eons ago, we cried out,
to believe, to suffer no more doubt.
But found instead good reason,
for love, and truth, from season, to season.

There you go…. That’s all I’ve got, ffolkes. Rather than draw this out, I’ll merely say, see you soon enough, & have done with it. Be well, be happy as you may, &  stay alert…. It’ll all work out in the end, & that’s where we are….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.

One thought on “Slow as sap in winter….

  1. SMiLes mY friEnd gigoid.. Ball of Confusion
    and calm Center Human
    Balance
    with
    Hurricane
    Winds of Joy
    in DancE and Song
    and the beat goeS on
    for those who live without
    fear in the most ravaging of
    waves on the Planet eARTh for
    now heat waves in California..
    wild fires by the scores too..
    Thousand Year Flood in
    Texas once in a
    Century
    Solar
    Eclipse
    maKing a grand
    ‘cross 92% of Red
    States and across
    the other way with Harvey Fire
    as Warrior Noble God/dess only
    by definition of Names Irma comes too
    roaring in as strongest Atlantic Hurricane Fury
    too ‘right’ up the Pistol Handle of a State
    shaped like a Gun known for all its
    Sunshine State Flowers And casual
    rumors of nuclear war of fire and
    fury with will see what comes
    next with scores of millions
    of Asians sitting
    on pins
    and
    needles
    of United States
    ignorance denying
    climate change too anyway
    the beat goes on and i dance
    in Deepest Sugar White Sands
    one in being with Emerald Green
    Waves Seagull Spiraling Feathers
    around sunshine iN with no fear now..
    even with potential guesses by
    Doctor for strange sweet
    smells shared
    in unison
    with Sister
    and Katrina
    as olfactory hallucinations
    indicative of potential brain
    tumor for only CAT scan to show
    if those those phantom sweet smells
    stay around for the next three months..
    meanwhile the beat plays on never skipping
    a step or word of nirvana bliss in heaven just ’cause
    i can and will bottom line of real when senses feelings
    say more
    than
    a ball
    of confusion
    ever will in illusion
    of hell now my friEnd
    i don’t follow the rules i live..
    and with that danced and sung
    sorry that your cat is not feeling
    well and best hopes and wishes that she gets well..
    meanwhile i’ll catch up/riff off on your latest 5 live efforts
    NoW and then off i go to dance as the beat goes on in the 177th
    week of doing that just for free fun ’cause i can and will so Y noT hEhe..;)
