FROM ONE too.. gaining great pleasure of peace from ‘seeing’ the happiness of others.. at peace and joy.. and truly that is what ‘Angels’ do..
they pray for others more than they…
AND now LOTS
Oh god.. i’m sorry i left out the ‘from’ word.. and i’m sorry you cannot see i come from a place of Love and being bullied for different that i am used to NOW..in what should be more than clear from reading this post.. with or without the literal word ‘FROM’ me..:)
And no.. i no longer worry about conFORMing when folks cannot understand me.. although i always clarify and validate what my points are.. when asked ‘before shooting’.. smiles..:)
But that’s okay.. it IS just more inspiration for me.. and NOTHING NEW.. as i’ve stated time and time again.. i come here for not recognition of what i do.. but for continuing inspiration from others.. and trust me.. this is just more fuel for that fire… friend..;)
AND IF THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD; my wife IS screaming at me TO GET OUT THE DOOR RUSHING TO A DOCTOR’S APPT.
and i make a typo as YES; I AM FROM THE ONE GOD OF ALL..
LIKE THAT OR NOT..;)
Other than that..
after commenting on
the other posts..
AND CORRECTING MY TYPO; AFTER GETTING BACK FROM WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR ME TO DO OTHER THAN THAT.
i see the fuller intent here; IT IS transparent friend.
YOU DO NOT WANT ME HERE;
and THAT is clear.
Honesty is my policy;
Whatever.. is your will… for ‘eyes’ that cannot see my point..friend..:)
Not a problem.. as stated above.. i am used to it.. and have accommodated quite well.. for not being understood by others.. at least for me smiles..:)
To know how the details of the structure
wHere one is from is certainly
a path of wHere on may go..;)
Yes.. truly the loneliest place of all can be
when we are only from the records of others..as is then..:)
i suppose the best place to be to take the next step..
is to acknowledge the failures.. face them..
and move on where light shines forward..:)
A beautiful place to be full of action.. colors and all the sensate delight.. that comes from a life of mindful awareness that better knows where it’s going now..:)
Ah.. yes.. and the best of all places can be that loving food.. midnight kisses and soulful prayers of the unconditional love of a mamma that makes young men grow the strongest of all as loving others as same..:)
Ah yes.. the wealthiest of philosophers often have the deepest fore bearers of all.. and that reminds me of the foreign diplomat.. my x-step mother’s husband that in this way is still a father to me.. long passed on.. with a vigor for saying it all with no hesitation..:)
Sadly.. they are a lost lot.. always welcome to me..
in all the corners of now where they still exist.. friend..;)
I love it when folks acknowledge
how much their pets.. dogs.. or cats..
lizards or hamsters.. are a great source of who they are now..
to come from noble dogs is to be best friends of others.. as well..:)
And cats do say a lot on that about me as well..
as i tend to wander and
Ah.. this reminds me of my Grandmother on the river making egg sandwiches.. while too poor to buy french fries at Burger King.. and yes.. i miss that woman more than the fries now.. as the loving touch of eggs.. beats the freedom of buying fries for now..:)
Yes.. again.. and again.. and again.. Papa do preach.. the mother’s love is the glue that keeps all of it together to live.. in love..:)
Yes.. the smell of Eucalyptus is a memory for me too.. a most beautiful tree felled by a Hurricane Nurturing the sweet smell of blossoms.. from a stump.. hoping for it to come back.. and finally saying bye to that beloved tree..:)
Hmm.. one sounds like a precocious reader.. a lot like me.. when symbols for life come first.. and then the speech comes later.. i suppose that is where my love for words first exist.. and oh my goodness back again.. in alphabet soup overflowing bowls.. haha! with winks and smiles too..:)
This reminds me quite a bit.. of ‘Malcom in the Middle’.. with M instead of B.. and oh my goodness.. not too long ago.. i am raised more by TV.. than reality.. first born or not..:)
Yes.. i too am friend and from the seasons.. changing my creative powers from warm to extremely hot..;)
And love the move out of the box.. here.. as literal is not my game.. at least not anymore.. no matter Winter..Spring or Summer Fall…:)
And truly this makes me think what the children of machine will remember at this age.. for video games.. and smart phones.. never truly knowing and FEELING the Love of Home..:)
i do believe the stronger among us originate from all these challenges and more.. and truly the honesty of one’s challenges cannot be repeated too much for ones who truly understand the greatest lights come from the most challenging dark of life..:)
I love the fact that you do not shy from your
faith in origination from God here..
funny how folks can get so shy
when it comes to faith..:)
It wasn’t always that way.. and still isn’t.. at least now where I live for now..:)
i suppose that the origin that is the father and mother of culture is becoming drifter for all.. where all is portable and no homes exist as everyone as nomad and hive inhabitant in a strangest way to live..:)
i suppose the longest journey in life can be finding home.. and the honest truth i think.. is we lose it.. gain it.. lose it.. until it comes again.. and sooner or later.. i guess if we are lucky.. we find it in ourself.. to rest at peace with the person.. and place.. we truly.. can never escape..:)
Haha.. i am from the same places replace Denmark with France and Spain and interestingly enough this replaces my assumption that you are Japanese my friend.. When i picture you.. of course i picture the Samurai..:)
i see this.. this morning and loved it as it reminds me of the actual movie and book named ‘Love Story’.. back in the early 70’s with Ryan O’Neil.. and when i see the photo of your father.. it reminds me of that story even more.. and the moral of that story.. as the one you have here. is ‘i am a liver’.. and love never means having to say one is sorry.. as one sees fit .. to do..:)
Truly beautiful.. and i do not see it at dVerse.. where i am waiting to comment on it there.. but you provide the prompt early.. and i follow suit.. but i leave out ‘from’ and get the boot..haha.. with smiles..;)..and winks..;)..x2 as well..:)
When one suffers or LIVES enough ..one finds that living.. is truly loving unconditionAlly.. no matter what.. comes next..and truly it takes more than that movie then.. for that lesson to sink in for real life practice.. for me ‘write’ now..:)
Ah.. to blend and be with nature is the most beautiful from where now is always from and from is now..:)
Oh my goodness.. i can certainly relate raised by a river.. cane poles.. a railroad track shaking the home like thunder all through humid nights while frogs sing a melody loud and clear of life…
Ah.. yes.. and then the anger does come.. from a culture that cannot understand me.. and a culture i cannot understand.. as well.. through problems with speech.. but nows do come and now is much more clear to me.. and truly sad.. rather than anger of the plight i see for others..
who do not see.. what i for one see.. of life more fuller off the tracks of culture..:)
A wild child life lived to the hilt of Jazzy ways of opening up beer bottles.. with keys is interesting to me.. but beer too bitter at that age for me..:)
To know one’s life as ONE with the land one lives on is to be at peace with all that is kNOWn from underfoot..:)
Yes.. with the allies of GOD.. country.. and family.. there is nowhere from that gets better than that..:)
Yes.. to be tender as Love and hard as strength is to be a smart cookie.. that can bend to all molds that true dough can wield…;)
Truly i think.. regardless of the sociology experiments in life that do come..
THAT strong father and loving mother who do dream.. is alive.. still in the dreams of the child..:)
Yes.. and to learn to appreciate both the times we do fit and don’t fit in, is freedom, at least for me..:) in treasuring and never fearing Unique..:)
A lesson of all ages for me; now finally learned well..:)
and appreciated even better.. AS WELL..:)
Ah yes.. a child of technology and art is this.. And oh goodness.. i never expect anyone to make it through over 8K words to comment.. my greaTEST effort yet.. you are certainly a ‘trooper’ out of the group.. smiles…
But unique for me lives on.. with or without the look or approval from others..:)
Thanks so much for stopping by..
even the strongest among us..
can use a word of kindness..
here or tHere..
Unique ‘we’ are..:)
After over 30 years of ‘REAL’ work.. most of which are spent in the world of Federal Service.. heavy regulations.. and oh my GOD so much red tape.. in following all the rules with the finest points of pencils.. Poetry.. dance.. and martial arts.. which are delightfully similar to me.. is my escape for creativity and ART.. and the ZEN way of that is to practice and practice and celebrate imperfection as well.. as i am always mused when imperfection says the most in fewer or more words.. steps.. kicks.. and photos.. music.. and videos of course..:)
My greaTEST ACCOMPLISHMENT is never thinking about it.. not going back.. and moving ahead.. the same as a Nautilus or Robin Williams does in the DEAD POET’S SOCIETY..
LESS i fall off the desk of FREEDOM’S WAY.. in creativity of imagination in art more fully unleashed and released in continuously changing human influenced forms manifest as the Human ‘Quantum’ Mind Unleashed and Released FREE…
A blissful place that is to be.. when folks allow it.. so yeah.. a solitary one too..
as uncharted territory does scare the hell out of some folks genetically so..
more or less..:)
So yeah.. i guess.. in that way this speaks for itself.. and thanks for your words of inspiration and tolerating that here..;)
as the practice itself is gift enough for me..:)
Yeah.. i guess my definition of that is ‘we’ live in cultures where ‘real’ work is considered something that gains money or recognition; and without THAT a person is of no value.
I like to think of and most importantly FEEL MY real work as a work of practicing LOVE of life in all i do.. but
that’s hippy talk where i come from..;) in deep south ‘fundie’ Red-State land.
I am born in ’60, staying there with the Beatles, Yellow Submarines, and Sargent Peppered bands, I guess..;) AND gnostic JEsus, dug up, in ’59…
AT least for now, TG..:)
i dig it..;)
And don’t worry.. i pledge NOT to fill up your page like this again.. with smiles…:)
Ah.. you take me to Australia.. perhaps it is dreams of Eucalyptus leaves and imaginary Koala bears that help along the way.. Ah.. Poetry is a delight to me.. an intermingling of souls known or not..:)
Ah.. yes.. ‘those’ minds are rather cheap gadgets that spin.. ah to go deeper than the spin.. is a place where Bill O’Reilly never spends.. i’m not seeing Yogi now with ‘eyes’ of Bill O’Reilly, as past or future is his life never now or NOT AS IT MIGHT ALL BE AN ADVANCED ACT OF ZEN EGO..;)
i love all these poems to this prompt as each one brings me back a new memory from the past.. and what i remember here is tight spiraling stairs in an old house so creepy that i only get to the top once to see a most beautiful photo of a passed on wife of a surrogate Uncle.. but that is the beauty of all POETRY.. the places it takes us.. with or without so-called proper form.. and that says nothing about your poem as form is nothing i care about at all as long as the feelings and sweet memories flow alive for now..:)
Ah.. yes.. the place wHere dark and light meet is the greaTEST spark of life for me.. the dark is light the light is dark as ONE FORCE OF LIFE AS ME FOR NOW!..:)
Sexuality and Gender is a spectrum.
In my experience, as historically speaking considered by both sexes, to be an attractive male;
I personally find that the most verbal homophobes are often caught later at a place of closeted homosexual action, at secluded parks, etc.
So in my opinion, quite often, it is a statement of hidden desires spoken in a fearful way.
Life is much more than 50 shades of grey; any real balanced human has aspects of both the feminine and the masculine.
Attraction doesn’t play by rules in a book; particularly closed minded covers of bibles.
And for some folks their own nature scares the hell out of ’em; silly, yes but true in nations of imbalanced human beings who are stuck in extremely complex cultural ways of head; instead of being IN TOUCH with mind and body balance of what human being even is.
The Bonobo better reflects a free nation of humans;
than the aggressive and often violent chimpanzee;
And Bonobos engage in homosexual acts all the time to reduce aggression; JUST as in the days of the rise of Rome.
People who are secure in their humanity; need not fear the different among us. And that comes in many more shades of color than homophobes, per any kind of bully; physical or intellectual.
It’s all kind of sad to me; that folks can’t just accept their own selves, as that is always the first step to accepting others; no matter how different they are.
I’ve never had a problem with anyone; no matter how different they are; as long as they are not obviously intending to harm someone else. Much of what I see in this world; is just ignorant and sad. So easy just to love oneself and move on in tolerating and accepting all others with just a little cognitive effort. And that’s the problem; some folks have little to no relative human free will to do this, NOW.
Dude, i AM in control of my Human Nature, WITH RELATIVE HUMAN FREE WILL, AS A ZEN ART OF REAL MIND AND BODY BALANCE IN CONTINUAL REAL LIFE PRACTICE.
It makes no sense not to be at peace and joy FOR me, so that is what I always do in real life. This is just the ‘ART of ZEN Writing’ that does include little ‘i’, me, AS DIRECTOR, i’, PRODUCER i, AND ACTOR, BIG ‘I’ aka as FREELY AND CHANGING CONSTRUCT OF EGO, ‘I’, OF MY, ‘i’, OWN, ‘i’, PLAY! of SpiRIT! in exclamation point !
!FULLY EXPRESSED IN NOW!
So there you go; that is the Art and Science of i expressed in spirit ! as such as I..;)
And what yOur i, observes as truth does not have to be match my i’s truth.
As i too, am a FREE son of GOD aka I with SpiRIT! FULLER EXPRESSED! as LIGHT AND ‘TRUTH’,
With smiles, OF COURSE!
‘DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER’.
i thought you already understood that by now;
but yes, I remember English is not your first language;
SO that is OK, as well. Life is much more than 50 shades of grey, or hues of COLOR;
and the ‘Queen Victoria’ ENGLISH SCIENCE style of STYLE IN GENERAL, AND Language is not a limit, I am limited too; NO, thanks..:)
THErE IS SCIENCE AND ThERE IS ART; AND TRULY GOD AS REFLECTED IN US, in greatest human potential, IS ART.
AND IN THAT pART, you are still a child my friend, and still growing like me, I can hope for you as well, IF that IS YOuR WILL.
BUT AGAIN, my Will is not yours to dictate; nor anyone else here or anywhere else; and that is A whole WAY of TRUE Gnosticism, ‘Jesus Style’, AND MORE, my friend,
Patriarchy has been falling hard since Obama is elected President;
and egalitarianism starts stronger in the Clinton Administration,
felled, ironically, by the liberal sexual behavior of Clinton that knows little boundaries.
Fear is the greatest motivator for polarized sides to go stronger; and certainly for a repressive and oppressive general patriarchal nature against women, disabilities, minorities, gays, and all the perceived weak of the world;
THE FEARS ARE COMING TRUE NOW;
AS THOSE folks are gaining prominence
in the National
GREATER and greater; particularly with the ‘spector’
of Gay Marriage coming this Summer or so with
THAT SUPREME COURT DECISION;
AND Hillary waiting in ‘WHITE HOUSE WINGS’ TO BE THE first female president.
To me the greatest issue is cultural change; and that part, in part for greater freedom of information and a global hive mind generated by the Internet, IT, connections of the world, will definitely make Egalitarianism against Patriarchy the global ‘war’ to come for the foreseeable future, as we are dealing with human nature at the core of conservative and liberal inherent genetics, and the war of the sexes; the war that will never end as long as we are different and unique in ways as human being.
