"The Looped Vision of Futures"
The loop plays non-stop the needle steps out of time into the groove of you and me all of us played for time we are their revelry hockey pucks struck by the quiet hidden demons smiling and licking their lips already tasting our souls on a vicious ice field lives matter no matter the colour of political greed time repeats over the record cracks verdicts and untruths the bells ringing out once the song of that king of civil rights now forgotten the bill players kiss each other with glee prayers and confessionals are wasted on all your wise misspent revolutions wafers dipped into a book of wagers profits and losses lost in tombs all black sealed could questioning minds make poetry from a death's throat opened to sing fresh air to breathe evolve some kind truth for humanity’s last minute a saved dignity and still the elephants march into the room slowly holding in their adrenaline trunks the dry bones of doom swinging low vibes slyly into our world view in their silent hidden stoic hypocrisy are we simpletons not alone wanting some humanity sanity dies on the detour neck of a road open when we are down on our knees praying for some brevity shortness of time waves wash over you and me in that vacant parking lot we wait when the war has dissolved what remains of the forgotten beautiful dream broken sutures misplaced in a corner no longer no blue nor no green some bad dream shelved on parchment hidden in cracked pots of clay forgotten in caves some other world's dark gone wrong history ignored, ghost wars crying out caught and unheard for some Light and some peace (LadyLabyrinth / 2021) gvlm - llb https://youtu.be/l0Bzb8NMTGk
“Talking” / London Grammar https://youtu.be/JjnXJpw3URQ
All of these changes Keep on following me Visions that wake me relentless Leaders mean nothing to me All of these people None of them true at the seams But I see you in dark corners Eyes, they look away from me Are we talking now, baby? There is a life here for free Are we talking now, baby? Talking to you, talk to me All of these roads are Leading to nowhere, you see When this world ends as we know it What's left will be you and me So all of these changes Are the visions of futures I see..." (excerpt lyrics, London Grammar)

A riveting poetic ride, LL! Your mastery of words and mood is second to none. Your ink is a mesmerizing work of art. Love and more love always.

Out of all the friends I have made over there in your country, I trust that you and yours are safe R.xx Yesterday sickened a lot of people, but will it finally stop the shame of ignorance, violence and the race wars that are killing all humanity. We have different coloured skins, we all bleed blood with the genetics of a 'human', one would think. Some humans are monsters. How many lives lost in the count, including the children, before humanity gets it and the message of those that sent their messages and warnings ahead of all this trauma we all experience daily, through deaths, protests, incarcerations, wars and well-meant and articulately delivered speeches and tomes to the people of the world - will it all come right and into alignment? It hasn't thus far, despite the good intentions of leaders before those of today.

Many humans are missing something decent in their brains and it is missing because we are all fed fear daily, not LOVE. I think a lot of people fear Love, if they didn't fear Love, they would embrace it and put more of it out there instead of bullets, bombs, televised public executions and biowarfare. Much love and light always to you and yours. x

I just finished watching Invictus and couldn't agree more...it is easier to hate than to love...any way you put it..easy...hard... I choose love

Thank you, I hope you are safe and all going well in your life. The world is going to get worse before it gets better. Hold on and face the Light. It's getting rough. It would be wonderful to think of it as a win, but it's not a win-win and we've seen this before in the States, history has recorded something similar in the past. We never learn. I wonder what it will take....xx
