Firefly And Red Stars…

Curious is fear and pictures when mixed with the confusion of many religions.

Warming suns of days ago with salted mist and taste of tongues. Lights of passion and times of rain. Wolf cries shout of sands and home. Across this universal stretch window shine in candle’s light and let us find another peace of safety sleep and lover’s reach.

The giant fireflies appear for two and one-half weeks across a month that changes day-to-night and back again. Insects large and landing high; in trees lining City Park to lake shore edge and stretching for one hundred miles along many directs of wiggles and giggles. Lights flash and silver leaves reflect in those many colors that start and stop like heartbeats and deep breath.

Holographs move at night. They are many colors and shifting sights. Dream figures and puppets moving without balance and for no reason; switched off-on and off again, when shapes do not matter, and color is wonder. Please! Walk through this chrome forest when color dances from treetop to tree trunk and leaves change from dull light to bright night.

Mango seasons are short. Giants arrive at the same time the fireflies appear. These hulks are fearful in size and silent animations. The village dwellers are simple folks and due to the motions of giant constructions, stay inside their possessive positions. While these genii are holographs, the villagers do not realize that these holographs are not physical. The beings beyond their boarders rule them with replicate magic and bogus news: no truth, just salacious rumors.

“Know I’ve done wrong,
Left your heart torn
Is that what devils do?
Took you so low,
Where only fools go
I shook the angel in you

Now I’m rising from the ground
Rising up to you
Filled with all the strength I found
There’s nothing I can’t do” … written by John Newman and Steve Booker

We are not gradations of flash and fear and afraid of flash and a million directions without notions of where and how to go or leave or approach or fade away. We are not just human. We are alive; life, and while simple of reason, are always on our way-away-to-leave or stay or afraid to simply fade away. Climb now, branches high; winter’s nigh, leaves not springing-sprung, prior budding and climbing high and tucked just below frost lined mountains, soft and night-time slow. Tree high and not moving toward twin-spin slower motions and notions still.

Arrivals in those machined boxes machine-sweet and together in minds of same or alternates, where we twirl the whirl and call the laugh or two as boxes open and away; we and they separate into some-things-or-less or the loneliness of crowd bridges or twin-screw moments of those spaces in time without seconds. And! Yes robots; we search blood and find taste good in mingle–tingle moments, touch amazing, touch not those imagine sources of unnecessary wariness and one becomes another and brief the flashes together spread the separate into singularity no more than once and again and again and again.

Foreign not home and light-year long. Far away from places seen and spaces known before earth-fall tunnel bright tunnel sight and a space of place between real and among the magic ones. Planet guided peace pleased. And! Run coming to streaks of night flash and day dash and a clash of two. And! They come by; copter churn-twist-chop, by lorries-engines-rush, by cart-horse-pull, by men stretcher-manned-carried and all wounded ones or twos or many and behind the layered flash of red-pink-nights we wait and wonder and gather-to-elves notions of life to stay or life to pass away today.

We are the daughters and sons of earth and of the starry heavens. Our history is alive and simple and true except when suppressed and distorted for unnecessary gains and a perversion called wealth. We are the eternity of spirits; no needed beginning and never ending. Such is the sweetness of life. Symmetry with no form except wind and rain and careful storms of chaos and figure. Go figure the here or the now and still history is not preformed or manufactured except through the controllers of spins and twists and the thrill of the lie. Or go figure; with the smile of Leonardo or the Lady’s laugh or the chatter of many minds or just a few of many hearts. Is it better to flee or better to dig livelihood from the bottom of one’s own grave?

Wind across this liquid sunlight as viscous waves turn lights into slivers of silver and gold. Followers watch for scraps or bits to fall toward their reach either diving for something new or rocking gently on this clear sea of warming suns and moonlight’s dance of song and silence. Our nature to run with and from the many or the few? See often through the curved ceiling of doorway when curved light enters twenty-one tiny windows round these openings to escape places and leave regions. Still more a spirit than the body proper until chemicals of doubt and satisfaction rule body self-ending sometime in time without mere reasons to be except—a rhythm to complete.

Just caught a sun-side ship outbound toward the third whirling twirl where shaped seas and peaks almost hill-high and wide as desert cross long to pause; wait for cause, then back again. ‘Tis long way home but getting there. How must this ‘race wind’—keep winding through sharp curves and peaks too high to climb when going home sometimes runs ruins of circles. Following smoke wisps or gentle sounds of sing-song-choir along the lines where see-meets-sea and sky appears above forgotten shimmers of flash stretched beyond eye watch and body wait. Please! Walk upon these salty waves of those long-dead-seas singing mystery songs and disappearing into mists and sea sounds and other dawns. Those little matters? Matter-less! Crease then gone—again.

Money short and without weapons; gather folks wise, to change histories’ futures with few resources of traditional warfare, to confront and destroy the inequality of equal freedoms. And! Maybe a little ‘more’ short-of-time does succeed in alternating alternatives and reversing certain terms of public debate to shift and to change a certain course of politics without violence and without passive passions. Obsolete not! Nonviolence is never irrelevant whether formed from village speak or global motions. Nonviolence is the strategy for confrontation and victory without swords drawn or thunder-guns and final recoils. And! Creating this resistance; without blood’s shed, is solution strong-to-solving the current global crisis of climate’s changes and miles-wide inequality. Together! We resist with; the power of heaven, and the imagined images of many Gods.

And! Beautiful you are…
