False Premise: Shadorma

FALSE PREMISE

Mountaineers
Each their own mountain
Up and up
Leave behind
All those souls down far below
And each other too

Dumbed Down

DUMBED DOWN

Let’s try sensible
The smart ones love it in us
They feel less lonely

Before you, The sun and the moon were paper-thin plates

Way to go, Monica.
Way to go, Esme.
Way to go, Ben.
Way to go, reader.
Way to go.

Esme's Cloud

You can feel the teeth of this one. Enjoy.

Rime Riche – Monica Ferrell

You need me like ice needs the mountain
On which it breeds. Like print needs the page.
You move in me like the tongue in a mouth,
Like wind in the leaves of summer trees,
Gust-fists, hollow except for movement and desire
Which is movement. You taste me the way the claws
Of a pigeon taste that window-ledge on which it sits,
The way water tastes rust in the pipes it shuttles through
Beneath a city, unfolding and luminous with industry.
Before you, the table of elements
Was lacking, and I as a noble gas floated
Free of attachment. Before you,
The sun and the moon were paper-thin plates
Some machinist at his desk merely clicked into place.

Just Imagine

JUST IMAGINE

To imagine to live
Is not a trick on its own
Death is its sequel

Sizeless is spirit
Unseen beyond its creation
And God is a verb

WHY?

Why am I choosing to repost this? 😉

VESSELS of VISION

The question ‘why’ is a door way into our inner world, our thoughts, the driving force of all of our experiences. Here are a few ‘why’ questions you may want to ask yourself. Warning, these questions may inspire you to own your power. Why am I choosing to think that? Why am I choosing to feel that? Why am I choosing to do that? Why am I choosing to create that. Why am I choosing to sabotage that? Why am I choosing to doubt myself? Why am I procrastinating? Why am I overweight, in debt, struggling at work, still in this relationship, not in a relationship … 🦋

The Legend Of The Moon’s Reflection (Republished)

THE LEGEND OF THE MOON’S REFLECTION

Deep in the Northern mountains’ silence
Once long ago
Far from the lands of men there lived a Prince
Cold as snow
All day long he would wander
Like a man possessed
As he went he would ponder
His life’s helplessness

Why it was that what he loved the most grew old and died
Why he found no place of rest however hard he tried
And he threw himself upon the mountainside
And knew himself to be alone and bitterly began to cry

And in his misery he saw
As if in a dream
That where his tears fell to the ground
There sprang forth a stream
And the stream fed a river
That flowed glad and free
From the hills to the lowlands
And so reached the sea

River and seawater
Flowing down together
Though the river ends
The sea lives on forever

And by means of this vision
The Prince was set free
And in his dying moments
At last he could see

Why it is that what we love the most must disappear
Where that place of rest is that is always free from fear
And he flowed into the river with his tears
And knew himself to be the sea without a knower or a seer

And if you gaze far out to sea at night
So they say
Sometimes you’ ll see his face shine in the moon
Far away
And the river still flows
From the hills to the plain
And the sea feeds the river
With drops from the rain

River and seawater
Flowing down together
Though the river ends
The sea lives on forever …

THE THIRD ESTATE

An open heart and mind
Are always good
A fully functioning shit-detector
Can often come in handy too
In my humble experience
