Flies and Immortality

Few flies ever get a proper funeral
much less a respectable burial:
No ornate tomb, no mausoleum,
no eulogy, though a few of them
have been immortalized on canvases
of famous Dutch floral masterpieces.
But only a few in all of flydom
have achieved what has become...Read More

Premium Member What do we know
We look at this world from our hiding place,
Through a mist of ignorance and prejudiced gaze,
From a tiny little hole with a tiny little piece,
We interpret the whole blooming space!

Intellect is locked and we have thrown away key,
Our God given...Read More

The way of tragedy is not for humans to know
For Karma can play a heavy hand.

With many people in many places 
Marching back and forward in a Time called Memory.

Some feeling needless loss, others the deepest sorrow
While others ho-hum along...Read More

Pain is everywhere
Springing from the crown

Expanding proboscis

And lays there on the cold floor
For the whole day
Till the senses start coming

All things can tempt me from composing words
I long to write praising these carefree birds.

But first my bladder needs to be relieved!
Oh wait, there’s gardening that must be done,
Plus meals. Then chores –...Read More

But they have decided I am bad!
They do not look me in the eye,
When they see me there is no Hi!

We have all done wrong,
there is but one true God.
Only he is perfect,
the rest of us are flawed.

Forgive and forget,
this can be achieved.

A Great Confusion
Is, it, to be called classi?cation?
Or is it a destruction of paci?cation ?
Or are humans still to undergo humanization ?
In which being humane is considered main quali?cation
Which is not being achieved due to illusional mesmerization,
Should we call it misconception ?

Over eighty years ago, my father

In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a cooperative action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
healthy global climates,
wealthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
natural resources
human resources
