We do not summon gentle love…It whispers to our spirits—and touches us beyond the flesh of resistance and routes of layers and lives inside walls too high to be climbed or under or around or about the shouts of daily doubts and flight. Love heart touches and reaches—into body frail and those impossible attempts to hide among thrones of thorns and weary costs already paid and already spent. Listen—just listen. And! Love reminds us of the equality of equals—woman and man and the spirits of all trapped and—living sentient sentences of life inside body—minding body.
On swings! Would push you higher than sky and into the blue of day. Before the partitions about and around us touch sky high and we grow layers wide as our legs lengthen and our tears change size and realize additional occasions to tumble from eyelids blocked, to ground. Would hear our laughter and see our happy smiles with no notions of future days. Again! Reminding us of the meadows of spring grass and silly-speak and those wishes for mint candy and ice cones of summer’s sweetness. And! As the Piper grooves; children-we dance, into this ragged-sorted night. And! As we prance; the Goddess flashes, along tips of dark where thunder loud dares not disturb, the claps of little hands and ring fused songs and laughter; as only children laugh, or angels’ sing.
This time of days of times ago and present time, the old man vision touched those other ones and whispered, “Not this time—Not this time—our children will not go to war.” Others knew that this time of times would not be the time for dead children and metal touch-to-flesh-madness. For these moments in time, warriors were not necessary.
The water’s edge and the skies of blue and pink and red and orange and yellow—as earth spins sets sunlight to softness and twinkles of sky lighted canvas sheets the blue-gray into darkness and stars light the sailor’s way along the caverns of space and place and the race of time. ‘Shining candles and shelter flash from shifting seas to current dash. Come to harbor Sirens call. Shining candles and harbor flash from shifting seas to safety side.’ Come to harbor Sirens call.
These are the salty ways of salted seas and flecks of foam scatter along shore-side shifts of sand from wet-to-dry as dunes rise above and beyond watered edges. Long before ruined boardwalks prompted something from nothing and was treasured and minded and known by the neglected ones; those once upright writers of the times and the sounds of countless ‘days of a future’s past.’ Still! We all cross spaces along these places with races in-time-gathered and night ships’ crossing heaven’s ragged ridges. Slaves of momentum, devices inside corners of house scatter and caves overwhelmed by many needs requiring covers to crawl into and away from storm’s wrath. Those saturated with sweat and rain then dried with winds of howling sounds and lighted by the flash of light streams laced just inside the edges of cloud swirl and twirl and reflected from a trillion eyes shining bright into those nights of storm and clutter and later, silent mist lifting from a million places outside caves and houses and homes almost forgotten and definitely gone.
And ‘coke-blow’ away the white lined winds. Never end and painless; needles spin’ unreal into reality and still busy-body walks among shimmers of bright light, edged storms, inky-blinky eyes, weed scratched throats and scrapes, escapes to rooftop stars and window shines. There are no sounds of screams—in silence. Music, in mind sized levels, is only music inside mind sized ears to once be seen in scales of notes added to working words to form verses of sound mix and chorus touch. An often dream or is this a poem of poet-speak? And! Not to know sometimes creates choirs in four-part harmony.
We are all travelers. We are scattered ‘cross all places of somewhere? We are not timed or blessed or wonderful or gifted or fortunate or meant-to-be a ‘something else’ without a price-tagged-branded-commodity of enhanced steroidal surgically modified, blast of cartoon fashion or lip-stick mouths pouted or mounted on another pictured perfect replicated glossy imitation of sport manned model swished—dish of corruption with a splash-dash of hopeless and fanatic fantasy.
Issues external! Internally detected or obtained from ‘reliable sources’ or sorta sourced and sorted through truth search or lurched internally structured to reach and teach or bleach amid throngs of wrongs as ‘sure truth’ is torn from snow-white right to a lily white lie. Lies detected or accepted or rejected or corrected from inside-out applicability or not workable until altered internally-externally prior to exposed or imposed upon the confusion of mass-squeak-speak. What a righteous cycle; when whispers, smiles and sighs and quiet nods could or would be better-eh? And! Does protection equal servitude?
When everyone realizes —humanities’ finest moments. All is Love and Peace and Touch and Trust…No charges or gains or losses. Just flashes connecting the realities of reality and sensing those sweet spaces just an instant before lips touch with co-mingled breath as the cold evening air warms. A rational response to a rational insanity. A second when no one stares into empty space without noticing starlight’s star bright and star-ships’ passing between light-speed and arrival just silently appear. When everyone everywhere and in-all-places realizes what we do not have does not mean anything. Feeling color through both eyes and with our fingers. Hearing a lover’s voice touch our heart before substance becomes words of meaning-or-reason-or-another notion. When silence completely fills all senses with thunder and noise and music and notes, chaotic or symphonic simplicity as duality ceases and singularity melts into universal polarity and truth.
Remember! Magical hands fill quickly with currency and the tongues of many fear-spew lies against people creatively mingle along a thousand creative gods called many names and both; feared and soon, forgotten. The love-of-man and the love-of-woman and of freedoms must not be divided by the capital of greed nor the power of stalled legislation nor by an impotent executive branch or a purchased judicial robe and incomplete with sugar and strange sounding noises. Consider! All are fashioned by the equal blending of both; women and men, rich or poor and beyond the borders of a-wherever-boarder for non-reasons and steeped in-the-fallacy of color, big guns, atomics’ and the perpetual diatribe of isolation, individuality and fear We! Have the Right to be Everywhere.
And! Beautiful you are…
