peach

today i wondered

if joy tastes like a peach…

would it tickle my tongue with it’s fuzzy skin?

would it dribble happiness down my chin?

Morning Quote

A great quote from A Pondering Mind

A Pondering Mind

“The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.”

~ William James

A short story…

How crazy is this?!!! Gigi and I wrote basically the same thing. She did it better of course but still so weird!

Rethinking Life

green pine trees on brown rock formation during daytimeshe sat in the mist
listening to the roar
of the water
feeling the spray
on her face
she closed her eyes
inhaled deeply
and became part of the forest
part of the river
the trees whispered to her
and to each other
she felt as if she had been
transported to another world
one that was peaceful
beautiful
and
wildly intelligent
the whole earth
sang to her
telling her secrets
giving her answers
she thanked them
from the bottom of her heart
but she jumped anyway

mist

she sat quietly on the pier

as the early morning mist enveloped her and everything around her

she listened intently to secrets the fairies so graciously shared

and heard the soft reassurances on the breeze

she felt seen and understood for once

and she did appreciate it

but you know the saying…”too little too late”

and she had come here with a job to do

so without ceremony or second thought

she jumped

Bind

lies that bind my wings

intentionally or not

stop me from flying

Contagion

You were fully aware

that it is contagious.

Yet,

you pointed that yawn

right at me.

Why

Why do you continue

the fool’s dark dance

and deny your own luminosity?

Why do you commit yourself to an eternity of decay?

Self-loathing cause a curious pigmentation

and you are saturated by it
