Seeing Through a Glass Darkly

Well if I say it myself this has the grey matter twirling and whirling around and around. Soup to nuts and back again a tale is told with a meaning buried within plain sight...enjoy...some will have a good laugh as I do..

Seeing through a darkened glass

Through tiny eyes they view the world
The one they have been programmed to
Bell book and candle burning bright
Every day and every night

Like mandrakes growing wild
Along the mediterranean coast
Their peculiarity looking human
When pinched and tied as they grow
Like some people that we know
For whom bells toll

Bound together hand and foot
No freedom left to them
To give or to receive
Influenced are they by others
Poor unhappy dears

Fields of delight

Bondage of a certain kind
Not knowing it is so
They forgot to play and laugh
In the fields of delight

Where corn grows high
Lavender fills the air
Birds and bees fly everywhere
Even butterflies too

Joy filled they find their way
Man has no inkling of the tune
That sings within an insects heart
A serenade of twinkling notes
Listen and you will hear

Murder Ahoy

Magic of a child's smile
When still so innocent is
Before the influence of others
Changes it to pain

Try another tack
Loving will bring it back
Kindness and joy
Words and actions that lift

Not the ones that bind
Oh so good they are at that

Thinking they will overwhelm you
Overtake oneupmanship
Jealousy and greed

Malice aforethought as Dame Margaret Rutherford
So succinctly said...
In Murder Ahoy

Busy buzzing bees

I close this with a singular smile
Have entertained myself right royally
Words flit through my consciousness
Like busy buzzing bees

Some will I am sure
Take offense at what is written here
Find a way to discredit me
Joining with others
As they so often do

But as my good friend says
Their goodness comes to me
Their badness returns to them

and so it is...

Quote from Loving Each Day....

The world does a very interesting thing to us. It meets us at the point of our agreement. If you agree to something the world will come and reflect it back to you. That's why we come together in groups on this planet, because what we agreed to as a group, the world gives to us.

Now, here's the thing you've got to watch out for: If you agree to negativity the world is going to supply you the negativity. And it will supply you the reference points for the negativity, and give you all the evidence you need to be very negative.

- John-Roger, D.S.S.

Love the mandrakes!! ;)
Great minds on the other -- son and I are studying slavery and the lead up to Civil War today. We did an online game through the Underground RR and had many adventures. Of course, every time we got "caught," I nearly cried. I know people learn to survive the harshest of conditions, but OH! my own times are hard enough and the battles I choose are hard enough!! So glad to be in this day and age rather than any time before!!

Reflections on life, thought provoking Carolina We are given cards in life - it is up to us to make the most of them even to squeeze blood out of stone. Overall we are well taken care of provided we do not dwell in the darker side; how other species manage is a good guide - siva

The magic of a child's smile - before it is changed to pain. Oh if we understood! Blessings my friend!
