A Poem About Excess

Through the sky room naked

You walk with all your Gold

Through the sky room naked

Just doing what you're Told

Through the sky room naked

As if we cannot see

How you lost your clothes

And gave away your chi

My little man is heavy,

Too heavy for your arms

I get it elephant, really

Mankind has lost her charms

You care much more for abstract

The things you cannot touch

Your treasure lies in cyber-space

You like it very much:

Like the detached element

Of never knowing why

People all around you-

Propensity to cry

We cry for all the suffering

The dross of Human pain

You see only bottom lines

And subterfuge, and gain

How I wish, oh elephant

Our lives could be reversed

Perhaps one day they might be

Then's you who will be cursed

Cursed to live like paupers

In this land of rich and free

Cursed to watch your children

Like oak-leaves to a tree

A tree bereft of dignity,

Of substinance and hope

Oh yes, my dear old elephant

You'd hang yourself with rope



Life's but a walking shadow,

a poor player,

that struts and frets his hour upon the stage,

and then is heard no more;

it is a tale told by an idiot,

full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

--William Shakespeare


Not Here

There's courage involved if you want
to become truth. There is a broken-

open place in a lover. Where are
those qualities of bravery and sharp

compassion in this group? What's the
use of old and frozen thought? I want

a howling hurt. This is not a treasury
where gold is stored; this is for copper.

We alchemists look for talent that
can heat up and change. Lukewarm

won't do. Halfhearted holding back,
well-enough getting by? Not here.

From Soul of Rumi
by Coleman Barks

The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts all on a summer's day;

The Knave of Hearts he stole the tarts and took them clean away.

The King of Hearts called for the tarts and beat the Knave full sore

The Knave of Hearts brought back the tarts and

vowed he'd steal no more.

--Lewis Carroll

"Never discount your wonder." --Albert Einstein

An agriculture of mind,of parents and kids,need sunshine,water & wind.I think meditation is,the trees sleep & breathe at night.


And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.Revelations 22:17

Just a thought

Though we pass through like a summer's breeze, this journey is a magnificent gift.

Forces align to destroy it, but don't let them!

Hold fast to your blessings and ease the pain of others.....

Don't sweat the small stuff: bask in it!

My favorite thing is coming up soon; buds on the trees just ripening. That plump fullness before they explode in color.

Such are our spirits.

This is the ripening.

May you burst into joyous eternity

      Bravo to john mccain.

      That speech he gave was unifying.

      Its what repubs and dems used to have in common.

      Its still possible. Get rid of the chaff

      Ok rightwing america.....

      This is your chance

      You always say we dont need gubmint, let churches and charity handle it.

      So, i wait with baited breath to see which church or charity is going to provide healthcare for the 9 million children who just lost theirs.....

      Time to put your money where your mouth is.

      Cause as you all know, talk is cheap

      just a thought, in this wonderful season: people here laugh at anyone who mentions extra-terrestrials, or inter-dimentionals....but consider: you believe a woman was impregnated by a you think about what you are actually saying??

      how about this: jesus himself is an extra terrestrial. implanted in marys womb, to spread the love of creation on a planet that has lost its way.

      lyrics to neil young song--"maybe the star of bethlehem wasnt a star at all." (a spaceship, perhaps?)

      listen to robbie robertson contact from the

      underworld of redman(may not be correct title)

      "indians have always seen the light, since the beginning of time. they drew pictures on the rocks, of our relatives from the sky"

      Can anyone see now why it is just foolish to keep up this charade?

      We will never get along here. We cannot just live and let live.

      Some people are determined that others must live as they see fit.

      Others will not now nor ever do this.

      We have separation of church and state. We have a constitution that secures our liberty.

      Do we really have to keep fighting the same tired fights over and over again?

      What will it ever take for you to live as you see fit, and let others do the same?

      Its tired.

      We all have the same rights here. And that does not include forcing your will on others.

      Just remember...

      People may forget a lot, but they'll always remember how you made them feel.

      Careful how you treat people.

      What a bittersweet moment...went to vote, at local curch. Started crying! For all those around the world who cant, and how lucky we be.

      Then thought of my 21 year old, "eh, what's it matter, they're all crooks anyway"....just like I was at her age.

      I voted today for my grandfather, who came here to America to escape evil.

      And my father, who loved this place with a passion.

      Land of the matter who tries to take it away

      Fort Hoodwinked.....another false flag


      Here's what I heard....the Bush daddy crime cabal stole a lot of gold from China...was hidden under Fort Hood. During the melee, somebody got it out of there.

      Obama in a speech not to long after that said "we've been Hoodwinked"...I think he knows what the Cabal is up to, but wants his children alive.

      Just my opinion....but infinitely more sense than one man shoots up and kills 30, at an army base where soldiers have guns.....DOYEEEE

      I heard Biden was at Kenney Center...saying this "war" on ISIS could take I having Deja-Vu, or do they really think we all forget.

      Casting spell....using same's my mantra: NO MORE WAR


      If we want it.......I guess we don't!

      so much talk so much anger so much hatred so much plain spell-binding

      Do they ever take a break......silence

      good philosophy here:

      "From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free.

      Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed.

      I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces”

      -Étienne de la Boétie, Judge during the French Renaissance

      "I'm gonna have one acct for speaking in the forums, and one for writing. "

      --- I thought this wasn't allowed. I tried, and my forum account was banned in 3 days flat. Unless you mean a different IP? I thought that wasn't allowed either?

      And FYI...I am banned permanently.

      And I do not go around personally attacking. If I answer an attack....then why the offender not banned as well?

      IN FACT...the forum where I was banned for life was started by me, infiltraited by 2 attacking me.....and I banned, they still free to post.

      Sorry--something stinks in HP land.

      and, like maxoma....when something offends my sensibilities....I never say Eh.

      Because--they say your participation affects your score....and your they are affecting that by their bans.

      And-I KNOW there is a group or perhaps one individual, who holds the heavy hand of God.

      by the way--I didn't do like these others do. It's the same account--just a different name.

      Plenty of peeps go on forums in different names....cause they post as both accidentally!!

      But they not banned, cause they better than me.
