Thrown away the key

Image result for fantasy art

On the edge of atrophy,

rampant revolution with the sea breeze,

brewing in the air,

the mist, beware.

We no longer have a care,

for the now frozen lakes far off in another galaxy,

the little people are free

weeds surround the beautiful sweet flowers that breathe,

life into the ether as between the lines we read,

grow, uproot, resist, feed,

through perpetual death and rebirth on the shores of grand rising we bleed,

transformative, awakening from the haze,

fires blaze,

as seasons change

earthy, watery an elemental stage,

passage through the malaise,

wounds cut open and the memories fade,

escape,

it’s too late and we can no longer wait,

sitting ducks and enslaved,

You may have thrown away the key,

but this you did not foresee.

Conscious surrender

In this moment all doors are closed,

in this moment there is no hope.

Not a way to cope,

that is working for me any more,

this is what was in store,

embrace this fall, rock bottom, the floor.

Conscious surrender,

open to the teachings through what seems like a blunder

Now the only way is up,

higher, higher, we levitate past this one small space where we were once stuck,

without much luck,

it is a relief, to finally be able to breathe, not heave,

gasp or grasp, just finally leave,

all that baggage and so we grieve

and move on.

but know I feel much better off,

now that it is all over,

went through the strife, stone cold sober,

did not escape tempting as it was and now it is too late,

I fell through and saw the boulder,

on my path, weight on my shoulder,

for exactly what it was as I grew older,

Many times I wished for a four leaf clover,

but nothing would show,

I do not know at the time how to grow,

I do not know where to go,

what I was doing, who I was, a purpose, skill, talent, nothing, nada, nothing at all

there was just a wall,

it would not come down,

a blank canvas, empty, I would go round and round,

but never did make a sound,

so you would never know,

and I would swear never, ever to put on a show,

no reason for that no, no.

I decide instead to flow and maybe tomorrow I could let it all go

maybe then I will finally see,

find something that comes to me with relative ease,

something worth it,

well maybe a little bit,

anything other than this, shit…

eventually things became clear,

the fear, well it did disappear

and I saw the lesson,

in this prison,

life has its seasons,

reasons,

and nothing lasts,

nothing you will not eventually get past.

To know and to not know

one, two three,

this should be a breeze,

with relative ease,

we,

all manage to have the same fear,

when nothing is one hundred percent clear,

fact is nothing is set in stone,

no promise, no not even at home,

intent is a haze,

don’t think don’t get caught up in this maze,

if nothing is a mistake,

then it does not matter if you love or hate,

this stance, this way, this living we each make,

I am here to offer you contrast,

Not an obstacle to get past,

this will last and I will not surpass,

what is real,

in favour of what is ideal,

to those who cannot see, hear or feel,

a glimpse of this truth,

and with all that said, that is okay too.

That’s all I did

images-61

It was really nothing,

A small little something

Didn’t take much time

To write a little rhyme

Pay a dime

Commit this crime,

Pretend to be fine

When life comes around

They make no sound

What has been found

Can shatter the ground

Yet still we go round and round

Offer it presence and nothing more…

Priceless, limitless, off the walls.

No time to stall,

On the heels of a reform

We totally transform.

The exact opposite of what it is to conform.

So tell me now what it is you have earnt…

something you may have learnt.

Or keep it to yourself.

You’ll just know when you decide to be fully present..

..and for once be with the contrasting essence

of all things pleasant…

…and even what many may call a depressant.

Somethings are unexplicable

Overthinking this may be irresistable

Tempting as it is

Is it worth it?

Weigh out the price..

…and you’ll soon realise

That maybe it’s not so nice.

The answer is easy,

breezy,

Don’t try play fair..

Or even care,

All I’m asking, is to simply be there.

Inspiration…

images-90

Inspiration,

comes from deep conversation

venting frustrations,

…and not intoxication.

A state of elation,

that requires no patience.

Mental elevation…

All in relation,

to how often you take a vacation,

from the story,

living in the heartspace free of worry,

Left the mind,

Far behind…

After daylight,

In the dead of night,

Saw that we could finally unite,

when we set the lies alight

Realised it’s alright.

Went just for a while,

…travelled many a mile.

and came back with a smile.

Faatima,

 

 

 

 

 

The dropping away.

images-122

Of everything from a place of fear…

Aside from the image I admire,

Reflecting what I love…

…and leaving in peace what I don’t want.

When a sentiment pops up in the space we call mind,

One of hurt, shame and a self undermined…

remember it’s presence…

…is a reflection of their essence.

Mine is clear.

Now and here.

A story dropped,

Let go of and stopped.

Blend into this world,

Healing work,

Unaffected for long, undisturbed.

When one grief serves it’s purpose,

I am open once again and another does it’s service.

Directing me to my calling,

Trusting, this gentle warning.

In touch with my truth,

knowing the weight of it’s place on earth.

Nothing matters more.

Than knowing what you’re here for.

Glow

My perfect handwriting,

No more fighting…

flames are igniting,

Present moment insight…

I don’t bite.

Thats a promise…

…when on the hunt for eventual bliss,

So stay still

…and go for the kill.

Breathe in,

You’ll always win,

It’s a truth,

that you can’t possibly lose,

Bulls, taurus has been let loose

…off the noose

Another chance to show,

tell them where to go,

Ignore the no.

…and exude the brightest glow.
