Trimming the sails of reality….

Ffolkes,

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”

~~ Maori proverb ~~

Nice day to ride a ferry….

Hajime…. I had intended to post this yesterday, but, an outbreak of demonic possession took place, distracting me from even entering cyberspace at all. I suppose it’s not entirely unexpected; one gets accustomed to such diversions after the first century of such wars. And, yes, time is completely distorted during such battles, whereupon seconds become minutes, minutes become hours, and days become a century of pain and/or misery. Now, if I could discover how to change the spelling of the latter, if only in my own head, then life would be full of mystery, rather than misery. SIGH…. I know. Pipe dreams…. from an empty pipe….

Today, the wars continue, though it may be, given the advantage of a holiday such as this one, the end result will be more of a skirmish than a pitched battle. One is allowed to hope, even if that hope is, well, hopeless. At least, if it looks like I’m losing, I can retreat into my Irish, (translation, a snootfull of Jameson’s finest…..), & postpone any outcome until tomorrow. Happy days!….

Upon checking back, I find this to be only the second fresh Pearl I’ve completed this entire month. Sad as that may be, it does compel me to finish off this rather awkward beginning quickly, & get on with this before I lose my nerve, which is already on the cusp of explosion. How about I use this old #4 I found sitting around; it’s still one of our most effective techniques to pull us out of any potentially disastrous holes, one of which I see approaching now. It’s kinda cool, and works like this….

Shall we Pearl?….

“True love in this differs from gold and clay,
That to divide is not to take away.”

Yep, It’s a default day. Go figure, eh? Ah well, at least we know it’s good music; it has, after all been popular for several hundred years. Not a bad recommendation, to my way of thinking…. Enjoy!….

A Seasonal Approach

Absolute stillness grips a frozen field,
anticipating dawn with such patient yield
morning burgeoning in dark winter’s hold
brings promise of tales yet to be told.

Lengthening days of pale sun unto night
slowly tell of time’s subversive flight
bringing such original songs of natural fire
with melodies complex in casual attire.

The months are certain they will always win
it is just the way it has always been.
None may argue, nor yet slow life down
Nor dim the eternal beauty of nature’s gown.

Winter evolves from fall into spring,
sending flocks and hearts ever awing.
Summer follows suit, t’other way ’round
Spring into fall, often without a sound.

Life is meant to be lived, beginning to end
choices abound, and change can be a friend.
Yielding with grace to reality’s compelling ploy
fills our plain existence with clean, honest joy.

There you have it, such as it is. I’m a mess. mostly, so, I can’t say for sure how long it might be for the next fresh Pearl. Time, that blabbermouth, will tell, as it always does. While I’m gone, whether walkabout or at war, y’all be well, be happy as you may be, and keep on keepin’ on, best you can. See ya, 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.

  1. i JusT NoW HaD A HiStorical
    Epiphany.. gigoid.. Better Yet put
    A Tear in a Beer Song that goes
    God was created
    by the
    first
    man
    not to be
    Truly Loved by A Woman..
    Seriously.. what better replacement
    for those men but another man to Love..
    And true.. it’s still true that according to Empirical
    Studies.. 23 to 58 Percent of Catholic Priests are Still
    Gay.. and that’s okay now but why lie about the Creation
    of God by Butt Hurt Men who were never truly Loved By
    Women for nothing more than naked Love
    as Passion too.. or afraid
    to admit
    they
    were
    simply gay
    so they needed
    another profession
    where no one would cut them
    down now ‘to size’ if they came now
    out of the Closet then.. it’s true.. i always
    Knew and Felt and Sensed my Mother is/was
    God for she was/is Love and the People at Church
    were mostly not.. or the so-called Bully Boys in Middle
    School Halls who said boys were F and not the Fred Word
    if they dared to smile even if that meant the girls smiled back..
    Same thing at the City Park.. where only Boys played with Boys..
    personally
    i enjoyed
    a Good
    Play of Doctor
    with the next
    Door Neighbor
    Girl precocious that
    Young Lady surely was then..
    me.. i’ll admit it.. i was scared
    but i continued to smile through the
    whole experience.. hehe.. and that’s what happens
    too when the sexes are separated and clothed too much
    away from Nature as ‘Fake God’ comes to Be oF Fear and Hate
    with one man for all the Men to Love Freely and never be called Queer..
    first or last
    it matters not..
    anyway.. i’m sure God
    is Love is God for Love
    is Real and Love is the Best
    Medicine for all that Heals.. so now
    why so why so why make Love into
    only one man when Love is more fully
    illustrated in my Mother from the very
    beginning to her very end.. it’s like the
    show ‘Little Sheldon’ as i’ve given up
    Funny TV Shows while i have
    Fun writing a Fourth New
    Lent Testament riSing
    up to 200K Words now
    in 41 Days for it’s true i create
    my own challenges and compete
    against no one but me to do more now more than
    i did yesternow as a Play of Live that continues NoW
    to Evolve and never grow stagnant or smaller now in tiny
    limits or expectations of yesternow now.. it’s true though too..
    i have them all on DVR for i give myself.. the right to cheat now
    And watch them after i finish this fun endeavor for it’s true too then
    my Mother Never told me who i had to be or how much money then
    i would ever have to make just be me and she would love me just the
    way i am.. True that’s the kinda God i continue to be too.. the Love God
    that is Real and even one that other Animals who Nurture other Animals
    do now too.. anyway.. “Little Sheldon”.. the mini-me of Jim Parsons off of the
    “Big Bang Theory TV Show”.. while looKing at A First Baptist Song where Onward
    Christian Soldiers are Lyrics then played to Force a Man on the World as the only
    God then looked up to his Mother Smiling back at him and he said Mama you are
    my Jesus and only Jesus to me.. only problem.. there is the exclusion of all the other
    Jesus’
    who Love
    Like a Mother
    as Jesus will best
    Unconditionally
    with no limits
    for what
    love
    will
    do when Real.. NoW MoRE Fearless
    A Mother who TRuLY Loves is greater
    than any man who ever dieS on a cross
    for anything less than Love.. as Love Rules Love.
