No One Person

No one dancer moves like another,

No one singer like another –

So unique are we.

Movement, voice, technique and timbre

All unique and at their best lyric

(pronounced lyreek).

How I adore

To see the store

Of talent and capacity,

Technique and flair,

Dexterity and artistry

In all from dress designer

To the finer forms from

Sculptor, painter,

To the lesser forms – whatever

They may have as name,

The nomenclature all the same to me.

Movement, sound,

The world goes round

In every creature’s singularity.

That’s all. Take care.

To All The Criminals IN The World


What will you do with all the money that you steal?

Such frivolous ambition, such shallow drive!

To feel alive? A fancy meal?

Believe me there are better things to make life real.

Designer clothes, a fancy house?

Lots of sex to prove that you are more than mouse?

What’s wrong with you?

You’re gonna die. We all just do.

 

What in heaven’s name (or hell)?

Greed just makes you small and smell –

The whole ambition yellow.

 

Gluttony, and hunger, all those drives for more –

Their more is less. They’re glamor-less!

Not to speak of pain you cause:

The drain of pain,

The chain of pain you deign to cause!

What can I say?

You betray what human beings’s meant to be:

Nice, kind, with generosity

Abounding in all thought and deed,

All energy, all conduct and activity.

 

To all the thieves and villains,

All the gangsters, burglars, miscreants,

You’re not the fancy pants you think you are – or aim to be.

So I repeat, believe you me,

It’s all so hare-brained. Wait and see!

You will wake up one day agreeing.

Everyone Has Faith

     Everyone Has Faith

 

Everyone has faith.

The only question is the choice we make.

Everybody worships (kind of)

What we worship is our choice –

From leaning, and from combination

Of that leaning and condition.

 

Choose, we choose what we were born to choose.

The gene, the fate, position, lot,

Perhaps to win or lose:

Strange as it sounds, our knot.

 

The crux

Is that life sucks

But faith brings trust, conviction,

Optimism, hope and courage –

All positive and negative, yin and yang

As well you know.

For what is not?

Guilt & Shame, Exhaustion, Doubts & Failure

I’m capable of grief, regret and feeling sad.

But is that guilt? And is guilt bad?

Knowledge that the one responsible is you,

However caused:

From innocence or ignorance,

Naiveté, unworldliness,

The mess created to put other(s) in a stew.

Perhaps it is.

 

In the stillness of decision,

From a willingness and will,

Rejecting guilt, dismissing shame,

Taking culpability in name of karma,

(though I’d never harm a

fly on purpose),

If I’ve done a something to a someone,

I will have to pay back someone sometime,

Try to form and glue a future, integrated, sutured me,

New belonging and identity;

Acquiring a philosophy to lean on:

A new frame, new name, rules of the game

Ameliorating guilt and shame.

 

They write about this all the time

Have done it since the start of

Any kind of written art –

In prose, in picture and in rhyme

In life, in death, with every breath,

Mistakes corrected to reach truth

Uncovered and un-smothered,

Reaching out that truth to other.

 

Through the spittle,

Perhaps victual

Of the title

I reach out to you.

The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & The Scriptural

The Pleasant Difference ‘Tween The Spiritual & Scriptural #2

 

How to say this briefly:

How to find words for the inexpressible.

They exist.

Here is the gist:

Components – churches, sects, cults,creeds:

The claim of being chosen.

Inner spirit doesn’t need a system woven

Into scripture claiming knowing

What is best for all.

One wherein if you’re good you rise

And if you’re bad you fall.

 

The faith-based places emphases

On unity of life within the mixture of belief;

Consensus, peace and joy, and getting these;

Transcendent over time and space,

The sense that you are face to face

With truth above reality,

Its indescribability.

 

Not impossible to voice

With Love that comes, fear that goes!

Erotic, no, more loving kindness big & small,

Universal, if you will.

Permeating, calibrating,

Affixing to an All that’s spirit: all in all.

 

Practices to help along:

Meditation, psilocybin, prayer and song.

The non– theistic preference

Needs to be demystified,

With road for genius or dunce.

Not piety, religion, magic, paganism, or god-based;

Theological or physical,

But meta-, deeply meaningful,

Yes mystical:

The core of all.

God Has A Plan

       God Has A Plan

 

God has a plan.

A plan?

What does it mean?

And what is God?

Not meaning to be mean,

I want to take in

Them’s that do and them’s that don’t

Believe or doubt.

 

If followed to the end,

All roads lead home to Rome.

Good-natured, good humored,

Dastard, bastard,

Substandard, no standard

Which means bad, good and all the world.

 

The plan, a plan

Is interesting indeed.

To analyze, interpret, give word to,

For we need

A word to read, be heard,

To take into the heart and head.

 

If you are a keen observer

Of the concrete and empirical,

You see that things have patterns,

(for example, thought and matter).

Post- and pre- the pattern makes it lyrical.

(That for fun – the main thing is the plan.)

 

Laws to measure, near and clear,

Self-evident, plain as the nose upon your face.

(Water seeks the lowest space).

Laws unclear, obscure, inferred,

Laws that find no place in science.

 

Plan, the God adored – is Law;

Door short of adoration.

There’s nothing wrong

With seeing through those eyes,

To please

Those on the border

Of belief and dis-

belief.

Taking Care Of Body Parts

Taking Care of Body Parts

 

Take care of the body parts.

All the same, remember that

Most of what is going on,

Is going on inside you.

 

Organs, blood, I don’t-know-what,

Brain, realms therein.

All in-, invisible.

Cause encased:

To be addressed.

 

Take care of the body parts.

They show.

It’s nice and comfortable to know

they work,

And more than that:

A pointer signal to research

The itch that doesn’t cease,

The lump or bump, the crease

Here, there or anywhere.

 

Of course take care,

But find what’s there –

And not.

Fix the flub on neck and throat.

Booboo unattractive,

But beware, take care and ‘suss it out’.

 

Remember,

No appendage or a member

Is the issue.

It’s what’s going on inside

That describes the living you.
