For Magnetic Poetry Saturday.


Timeless beauty in purples roses,screen-shot-2016-12-10-at-15-48-44

love soars with the wind,

sweet as honey,

juice of the moon,

but bitter death

in still water sits,

light and music rust red raw

beneath the sea.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. I think I told you a close friend had a brain tumor removed, I have been doing some reading up on a hither-to unknown subject matter and learned much I previously was ignorant of, including bio-feedback and it’s impact on our behavior – so why not enzymes. Makes sense to me, no different in a way (though very) to a chemical imbalance of any type, take the mercury of the bipolar as an extreme or how we are sometimes more inspired when distressed. The mind is so vastly untapped and unknown. I’m one of those who believes whilst maybe not 90 percent unused we do not use the majority of our mental capacity and I often wonder what it would take to use more, I suspect less linear than circular, but I don’t truly know. As you say, perception, reminds me of that book Heaven and Hell the doors of perception by Audous Huxley (sp)

      2. Well, Huxley was an acid head, so maybe his perceptions had a little artificial stimulation 🙂 It’s true though that we know so little about the brain and what it can do. I’m willing to believe we’re capable of creating almost anything in our heads, but we probably need guidance on how to get it out.

      1. Happy birthday my dearest! Enjoy your celebrations and I wish you a marvelous new year ahead filled with oracles and wise and wonderful words and good plumbing and insulation in your new home xx
