Exquisitely intricate twine….

Ffolkes,

“Food, sleep, fear, propagation;
each is the common property of men with brutes.
Virtue is really their additional distinction;
devoid of virtue, they are equal with brutes.”

Defiant Beauty

Defiant Beauty….

Hajime…. It’s been a week or more (I’m too lazy to actually stop to figure out the exact interval…) since I last posted a fully fresh, fully filled-in Pearl, & I said I’d post, so, to avoid any significant build of inner angst (some folks call it ‘guilt’, but, not me, nosiree…. too personal….), I’m going to go ahead with what I’ve cobbled together, so I can work on a properly constructed piece of work, one with which I can be content. With this one, I am, if not content, then, tolerantly bemused. There’s a good older poem of mine, some fine music (three centuries of music enthusiasts can’t be ALL wrong….), and a number of excellent pearls strung together to make up the final, always odd finishing section of old-school pearling. Not bad, given the severe shortage of time spent at the computer in creating it….

Whatever my reasoning, or, euphemisms used, it’s going to have to serve, because I’m too invested in playing in the real world to stop at this point, with so much of the world still to explore. I’ll work hard to finish off the new poem, if only to get it out of my head, so, it won’t be long before the next fresh Pearl shows up. I’m sure, by now, y’all are thrilled to hear that. Well, perhaps ‘thrilled’ puts a strain on your credulity, but, you know what I mean, right? If not, boy, I’ve been doing something wrong, or, have been gone too often for my irony to register. SIGH…. Oh, well, that’s Life, y’know? Delicious ambiguity….

For now, let’s quit fooling about, & get on with what I have for y’all to enjoy today. I’ll even refrain from employing any of the customary BS, & just say this….

Shall we Pearl?….

We’re going with a default selection today, to save time and cognitive angst which builds up the longer I take to make a decision on it. We’re also going with my personal favorite composer, for similar reasons… I do hope you enjoy it; I intend to do so as well…. Abondanza!….

The new poem isn’t done; it’s leaking out in small pieces. Here is one of my better efforts from 2013….

After the odyssey….

Portraits of iconic symbols, crashing, singing, forgotten;
evolving into mature innovation, as yet pale, and rotten.
Still water justly breeds, impenetrable primal verses resound;
unholy moments tarry, emotion swirls in passion unbound

Spiritual ovulation precedes each pregnant pause;
gravid, time moves on, following destiny’s cause.
Cast adrift on waves of confusion, to a final, damp landing;
salvation beckons sweetly, fed well on understanding.

Dreams directly fall, in night’s grey bower, unbidden;
lingering flavors in simple taste, lovingly, cleverly hidden.
Childish laughter sounds, joyful, bright, and clear;
no need ever to hide, no more monsters to fear.

Temper most foul arrives under unregistered mail;
forgotten taunts live on, lashed by an ancient flail.
Plain dealing delivers such lasting specks of honest hate;
savage in retrospect, never hasty, always running late.

Forever, cries an ambient lover of the pending night;
his pale, weak issue forms its own failing light.
Still, fortune favors such as those who apprehend;
Sweet love of Gaia, let it never end.

I did it. Again. I don’t know how, or why, and don’t wish to tempt fate by trying to figure it out. I’m just going to be happy with what there is, & move on to different, if not better things. Y’all enjoyed it, I hope; if not, well, as Epictetus said, happiness & freedom begin with a clear understanding that some stuff isn’t within our control Cute, eh? And, just tricky enough to be true. I’ll see y’all in a day or two…. Be well & happy, ffolkes…,

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

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

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

    SMiLes gigoid and Happy Big Blue Room NoW
    Good Will Hunting to you with Love as i’ll stART
    off with this one above to Dance and Sing i most
    often come here for SHiNoLA and predictably
    find it and also go to some places
    of SHiToldYa and predictably
    find it tHeiR too so
    sure.. i appreciate
    YouR SHiNoLA
    Very much..
    But True in a World
    that Love might Dictate is a great
    thing that the SHiToldYa is finally getting
    censored out.. i’m not sure that is a good thing
    for you know what they say about roaches.. when
    the light’s not on ‘they’ survive just as well in dark places
    too and true they work twice as hard to get food.. whatever
    that takes.. and
    sure to Breed
    some
    more
    Roach Folks too..
    it’s true my friEnd there
    are plenty of Shadow Roaches
    out and about in online light now2 and
    True as far as SHiToldYa’s.. the KinG Roach
    is BRinGinG even more dARk out into the LiGHT
    unafraid of
    RaiD these
    days.. hehe..
    embOLDened as
    ‘they’ say on the Dining
    Room TABLE oF LoVE too..
    the thing about it is i really have
    no choice but to respect roaches in the
    light and in the dark for true that shadow
    brute force of survival in Finding Food and
    Propagating more is the Shadow Force
    thaT also is the Grain of Sand
    that Mountains of Love
    Fly uPoN NoW
    too.. True
    the least i can hope
    and will to do is to raise the
    ‘dirt’ up beneath my feet to LiVInG
    LoVE for the dirt that brought my ancestors
    all to the potential of a Kingdom Come oF LoVE
    aLWaYs NoW to appreciate and JuST Do Do Do NoW..
    i am not afraid of the dark for as always that dark is core
    to all the light i am.. as Love.. i am not afraid of my shadow
    nor my propensities to get Mused over the fairer and lightly
    cladded other gender.. i am not afraid of Anger for i understand
    how to turn Anger into a weapon of Loving Hands.. i am not afraid
    of Jealousy for i understand now how to have it all in just three feet
    of sand and a spiraling dance Naked with the (a) Sun of eARTh and a bite
    to eat.. some water and a roof over my head for true i am the one who has it
    all in just
    a naked
    dance of life
    who once thought
    there was more than Love
    and Dance and Song and a few
    crumbs and water and shelter to make life all
    it truly needs to be as LoVinG FReED NoW to be..
    true.. for in this sense and feel how can i not feel sorry
    for those who are envious of what they cannot see at naked hand..
    for they are already
    have it all just
    like me
    if they
    will just open
    up a Real heART oF
    SpiRiT as a SoUL that
    and who Dances and Sings
    as a Leaf of Grass in a Whitman Garden
    of LoVinG
    iT aLL
    NoW2..
    as any Kosmic Priest
    will simply do forevermore
    now in a City of LiGHt that
    and who Lives WiTHiN..
    And it’s true.. i am not
    afraid to fight
    but i am
    strong
    enough not to ever
    feel less or more than
    a grain of sand the same
    and different too.. in other words..
    there is no compelling reason for offense
    and good reason to walk away as far as turning
    other cheeks too.. but true fearless carries a defense on itS oWN
    And a ReaP of Peace NoW as WiLL’s GracE oF LoVEFReEDNoW..
    As far as gluttony goes sometimes i have to be reminded to eat.. as
    Far as vanity goes you bet i love myself as much as i love you and everything else..
    hehe.. have i left anything out of Brute Force too.. sure likely i have for words are limits
    and essence
    is everything
    else
    i do
    LoVE too..
    True.. i don’t like
    everything but accepting
    what i cannot change is enough
    to Love all For me.. True.. my FriEnd
    i am A Brute2 as i Love me some Minions too
    sure or 3 as true i am A connoisseur of Minions where i live2..
    i don’t want them to hide.. they work hard enough in the light..;)
