Every great man shalt cease to inhale,

Premium Member Honesty
By: Miracle Man

When things go awry,
It’s man’s nature to place blame.
Accusations and innuendos,
Become the name of the game.

While ignoring the shortcomings,
In our own persona.
We explore our list of prospects,
Seeking out our next Jonah.

But when good things happen,
Pertinent facts we’ll edit.

A walk upon a path to the forest that spreads out beyond
This is adjacent to a pond that has many venues
Seeing spectacles of sun flickering amongst the hemlock trees
That aligns this path which leads to bountiful channels of awe.

A room without a view, unkempt for many a long year
Dusty aging book slanting within a bookcase
Closet doors creaked, the wide boarded floors moaned as I walk
Adjacent to the bookcase is a stone fire place with iron kettles aside.

Nearly all things
pertinent to life
are dispensed
in measured
finite quantities
even relationships
and our life itself
in precious drops
of time

So, thrift in
nearly all things
is merely a logical use
of these resources
in appreciation
of their value
their basic

But even frugality
can go too far-

Polarized Planets

Contrived is how it is
incessantly demanding
jaw snap and tantrum

Impertinence of Zealotry

refers not only to Trumpian rudeness,
but also irrelevance
to Earth's Kingdom 
at Compassionate Hand.

And admit I’m frazzled
Your mind reads like a puzzle
