Vintage Love
She was his pillion on the bicycle
The trees were bare and calm 
Fallen leaves carpeted beaten path
Her golden locks dangled in breeze.

He handed her a fresh crimson flower 
Fragrant long stemmed single Rose
She held it abreast , a balancing act

A wondrous balancing act
Everything falls into place
As two parties meet halfway
That is compromise

I continue reading Iain McGilchrist's
"The Master [Mistress] and his [her] Emissary,"
a retelling of many RightWing dominant
and LeftWing repressed and suppressed events
and pro-orthodox patriarchal white privileged histories
of nationalistic fatherlands
written across the individual ego-hearts
and eco-habitats
of every EarthMother trans-regenerator
born into spatially incremental awareness

Life is Like a Circus
Author Dana Redricks

Lord only you know the 
struggles we face
The unseen battles we
face from within 
Although our experiences 
maybe the same, how we 
cope with our difficulties 
will never be the same 
Life is like walking...Read More

It was the driest season in years
the animals were running out of food
they gathered around their withering watering hole
looking up at the night sky 
hungrily wondering what the stars tasted like
so they made a plan to reach them.
The giraffe would...Read More

that understanding exists
between opposites

languages and their meanings
negated and cleared

that understanding

The Valley of Indecision
Lost in the valley of indecision
Forever caught between here and there
My mind is divided, my soul is torn
And monstrous phantoms are everywhere

There's neither light, nor is there darkness
Here in this barren oasis of grey
Trapped somewhere in between questions and answers
Groping...Read More

"Fatal Attraction"

The letter was typewritten
IBM Selectric, 
No final salutation
in italics
“With love”, 
but it was there nevertheless
Bleeding Bold Black

With knife point calculation
An arrow hit it’s bullseye
A flourish with intent
A nicotine stain 
at the bottom of the page

In the world and not Of it
Jesus is right: Life entails a balancing act
(He is never wrong, by the way) : -
"Be in this world, but NOT of it. Don't react."
(How? you ask. Impossible even for you!)
O just wait, when life leaves you askew.

And it happened...Read More

Dangerous balancing act on center yellow,
somewhere betwixt someone’s write and who’s left.
Tempting banana’s savory splits and discarding bitter lemons.
Tiptoeing comfortable dandelions and fragile yellow pansies,
unwilling to crush feelings of yellow inadequacy.
Purity of white soles bear the weight of dark amber.

I envy those that seemingly do not go through 
This process of weighing things in my mind

Sweet love
Sweet love, what you do to me, 
You follow me all the way home.

I've got places to be, to see, 
If I'm ever gonna make myself known.

you make it difficult for me...Read More

Speaking about what happened unambiguously
is too hard to do for several reasons.
People are fragile beings,
they need to be protected from too much.
It is a balancing act, 
walking the sharp of the blade wearing socks.
So instead you wrap words in colours...Read More

Kaleidoscope of Madness
A kaleidoscope of madness
Keeps spinning in my mind
The good, the bad, the in between
Forever inter-twined

Lost inside my decisions
Where did I let it go wrong
I find myself spinning
But find clarity in my song

And forget...Read More

It's all up to you
Every little crack I have
Deep inside my soul
I am unashamed of them
Through those I've learned to grow

Every little break I have 
Inside my beating heart
Yes they hurt profoundly
They let me know I am alive

Every little doubt I have
That crosses through...Read More
