Acting on the Impulse of Life

Acting on the Impulse of Life

Acting on the impulse of life, We disintegrate into the ends, Of pearls washed-up on the shore. There is no other life. A wasted body laid out on a slab. A naked woman flesh and bone. Rodin depicted her. Sculptures literally on streets. “The left coast must lead rebellion… I’m with the resistance… I’m with […]

A Veteran’s Tribute to Veterans

A Veteran’s Tribute to Veterans

http://plusquotes.com/images-veterans-day-photos-november.php Many say that they – “love freedom.” Even more, say they – “hate war!” About all, I must wonder, Have they no clue what went before? Our land that’s “known as freedom,” Was born out of war. For freedom, never has been freely given Nor sustained forever more. Those who are known as veterans […]

America is now AmeriKKKa to me!

America is now AmeriKKKa to me!

    http://www.politicususa.com/2014/12/05 America is now Amerika to me. It’s no more the dream it used to be. Nor the patriot’s pride in freedom won through pain. And millions, once hopeful, now hope in vain. (America no longer is America to me.) Americans let the dream the dreamers dreamed— Turn to dust and true patriot […]

Duality or Polarity

Duality or Polarity

    twinflames-soulmates.com   The choice we see is too often construed as “either – or”. It is sounder and wiser to consider it as “both -and”.

Dao Is Never Done

Dao Is Never Done

kaddigart.deviantart.com Cosmos lays cloaked beneath apparent chaos; in all disorder abides a subtle order. All civilizations and all human beings, whatever their seeming cultural or conscious development, still harbor archaic remnants and tendencies beneath the stability and serenity. Just as the human body connects us with the mammals and displays numerous traits of shared evolutionary progress […]

Contented, Not Contending

Contented, Not Contending

thetattooedbuddha.com   The wise can handle acclaim and fame, attacks and blame better than others because they demand more of themselves. For them, the approval of others is not a cause for celebration. Nor is the censure of others a source of  trepidation. The wise take cheers with equanimity and  handle jeers with composure. Sages […]

Landscape

Landscape

I need the landscape to move me. I need to see to rolling hills and trees. I have to look over the cliffs and witness, The ocean thundering onto the beach. I love to climb-up onto the branches, Of old growth trees and hang on, To the limbs as if it were my own life, […]
