Random Awesomeness

Announcements, rants, affirmations and all else that doesn’t quite fit into the other categories are posted here. From poetry that probably won’t be made into a song, to in-the-moment expressions of thoughts and feelings that probably won’t make it into a story. I will share here, whatever comes to mind and heart. Occasionally, I also may take creative writing pieces from my past, revise and revive them to post here.

3/19/19: Water Phenix Wondering

There you sit upon a transformed spool. Your partial being now collecting ashes of our revelry. Could they have been otherwise used more foul? If I'd only known better. I might grind you up and toss you into the ocean. So you could again be whole. My whole being feels connection now. As all you [...]

3/17/19: Love Culture (Sketches)

Love Culture has me and will not let go. Gripped in reckless hope abandon subtle senses. None for show. My gaze sure to fall in the ether and recall. Time for lovers. Time uncovers. Every stance a warm expanse. Bits and bytes embrace my all. But not all. Love Culture is me. I do not refrain. [...]

3/13/19: Try a *Little* Nakedness

I am a child, I last awhile You can't conceive of the pleasure in my smile ------ Neil Young ---------------------------- I don't know how I got here. Or what I'm expected to do. I guess it's a bit childish for me to be so unsure about these things but... That's just the child in me. Being [...]

3/8/19: Simple Beauty, Simple Feeling

Amazement of this kind is rarely felt twice. Life quickly wears it down. ------ Gaston Bachelard ------ Simple enjoyment in every moment. Sharing beauty so fragile. So completely in the here and now.

3/6/19: Qarrtsiluni

Sitting together (the key to understanding this) In the darkness (the challenge to ego and proclivity) Waiting (the unavoidable practice) For something to happen (also translated as "something to burst or break") ------ The future is dark only in that it is unknown The past is dark only in that it is unexplored The here and [...]
